New Authors like Me Can’t Advertise on Google or Facebook Because Content is Related to President Trump / Election

As a new author doing my own advertising, I can’t create ads on either Google or Facebook for my new book of parody “Concerning Trump” – with no end in sight for the ad restrictions.

The ad bans are related to the 2020 presidential election – which by the way was fair and perhaps the most secure American election – ever.

Don’t take my word for it, Trump’s top cyber security guy said so. Then was fired.

In any case, I await some word from the Galactic Overlords at Google and Facebook to let lowly peons like me promote our product.

So, I just jump through the galactic hoops and wait. And wait.

This is the America we live in now.

We have arrived at a place where the overlords have to stop both Liberals and Conservatives from advertising because we are so polarized as a society.

When will it end? How will it end?  

Here’s a quote from my book that pretty much sums up what Trump has done to and continues to do to our  wonderful country:

      • Trump recklessly stokes dangerous parts of America, in a country that already worships aggression.

See the screencaps below which show the ad restrictions and that one has to verify your identity as well.

An example of how Trump treated perceived threats – from fellow Republicans

JAN 20, 2021. Biden Inauguration day.

Another delightfully quiet, sane day without Tweets from the Twit-in-Chief.

Thank you, Twitter, for blocking and protecting us from the worst President in the history of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

The following excerpt is from a fantastic article by the  New York Times that lists THOUSANDS of insults by Trump.

I picked just one object of Trump’s Twitter ire: the insurrectionist Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

U.S. SENATOR

The following parable is applicable to the division we find ourselves in America today

 

republicans vs democrats peter bakke

Check out he following parable from the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer and contemplate its applicability to the political divisions we find ourselves in America today:

One cold winter’s day, a number of porcupines huddled together quite closely in order through their mutual warmth to prevent themselves from being frozen. But they soon felt the effect of their quills on one another, which made them again move apart. Now when the need for warmth once more brought them together, the drawback of the quills was repeated so that they were tossed between two evils, until they had discovered the proper distance from which they could best tolerate one another. Thus the need for society which springs from the emptiness and monotony of men’s lives, drives them together; but their many unpleasant and repulsive qualities and insufferable drawbacks once more drive them apart. The mean distance which they finally discover, and which enables them to endure being together, is politeness and good manners. Whoever does not keep to this, is told in England to ‘keep his distance.’ By virtue thereof, it is true that the need for mutual warmth will be only imperfectly satisfied, but on the other hand, the prick of the quills will not be felt. Yet whoever has a great deal of internal warmth of his own will prefer to keep away from society in order to avoid giving or receiving trouble or annoyance.

Concerning Trump : A Book of Parody : By Peter A. Bakke

Buy ‘Concerning Trump’ … A Book of Historical Quotes Reimagined for Donald J. Trump’s Turbulent Era.

About the Book:

Political parody can be defined as: “… a literary work in which the style of an author or work is closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule.” – Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

Parody may help those of us cope who have a liberal or moderate political disposition. It may also help make bearable these turbulent political times under the growing shadow of Trumpism. 

This frequently somber, sometimes humorous volume reimagines historical quotes with a keen eye focused on Donald J. Trump, Trumpism, and his Republican party. 

But beware, this book can only be taken in small doses. 

Like arsenic. 

If you read it and start feeling ill, that’s a good sign, a sign that you’ve been paying attention to what’s been going on in our country under the Trump regime. 

Set it aside for a while. 

But never set aside your vigilance for leaders like Donald J. Trump.

Sample Parody Quotes:

Aquinas, Thomas

Since we cannot know what Trump is, but only what he is not, we must consider the ways in which he is not rather in the ways in which he is. Is that clear?

Arabin, William

Trump, God has given you abilities, instead of which you go about the country talking trash.

Arendt, Hannah

Promises are the uniquely human way of ordering the future. But Trump makes doing so unpredictable and unreliable to the extent that it is humanly possible.

Trump shows that no cause remains but the most ancient of all, the one, in fact, that from the beginning of our history has determined the very existence of politics, the cause of tyranny.

For Trump it is easier to act than to think.

Trump haunts us. It is his function to haunt us.

Ariosto, Ludovico

Nature made Trump and then broke the mold.

Aristotle

Trump is dear to Republicans, but dearer still should be truth.

Trump does not know that excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines our destiny.

Trump is fading away because the energy of the mind is the essence of life.

Dignity does not consist in Trump possessing honors, but in him deserving them.

The educated differ from Trump as much as the awake from the dead.

A would-be tyrant like Trump must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Voters are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has God on his side.

Trump and his cult-like followers know that democracies may easily degenerate into despotisms if enough lies are believed. The bigger the lie, the better for them.

Arlen, Michael

It is amazing how nice people will be to Trump after they know he is leaving office.
