As just a reminder, fascism is a form of authoritarianism characterized by forcible suppression of the opposition, as well as having a desire to control society and the economy.
You be the judge if Google is operating from a fascist platform or not.
Dan Gainor, of TechWatch, reports for Fox News, “If you wanted an example of the worst abuses of Big Tech and leftist journalism, Google and NBC teamed up this week to deliver one.”
“NBC and Google try to censor [are censoring] conservative websites, endangering free expression.”
“An openly leftist NBC staffer based in the United Kingdom worked hand-in-hand with a foreign advocacy group to attack two conservative news organizations in the United States. And Google did its best to help them.”
“NBC reporter Adele-Momoko Fraser, employed at the scary-sounding ‘Verification Center,’ worked with the Center for Countering Digital Hate [CCDH]. CCDH is a British operation that claims it ‘seeks to disrupt the architecture of online hate and misinformation.’ Together, they tried to financially ruin The Federalist and ZeroHedge.”
“Fraser and CCDH tried to silence their political opponents with a presidential election less than five months away. Remember all the media hype about foreign involvement in our elections? In fact, the anti-Trump media never really cared. They just wanted foreign involvement on their side.”
“Initially, NBC News claimed that Google had ‘banned’ The Federalist and ZeroHedge from its ad platform for the crime of ‘pushing unsubstantiated claims’ about Black Lives Matter.”
Were these “claims” “unsubstantiated” or incompatible with their narrative?
“NBC cited a Google spokesperson as saying the company has policies that ‘explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing.’”
I would say they are prohibiting content that may be derogatory, but which are simply stating the truth.
“An article on the NBC website went to claim that both sites had been demonetized, but Google backed off its attacks on The Federalist. For now.”
“The ‘reporter’ was thrilled and thanked CCDH and its sister group ‘for their hard work and collaboration [I would use the word “complicitness”].’ Just in case you thought she was neutral, she even added the Black Lives Matter hashtag. She later deleted that, but the Internet is forever. Just like her bias.”
“She wasn’t the only one celebrating. Imran Ahmed, CCDH founder and CEO, was ‘delighted’ and tweeted out the article, calling it his organization’s ‘biggest win ever.’”
“CCDH isn’t done by a long shot. The group is ‘calling on advertisers to blacklist these 10, U.S-based, racist Fake News sites.’ The list includes The Federalist and ZeroHedge, along with Breitbart, American Thinker and WND. If leftists like Ahmed have their way, conservatives won’t be allowed to post anywhere online.”
Who does Google think it is?
Google doesn’t control the internet…, they are merely a search engine utilizing the web.
“Remember that the next time so-called journalism professionals whine about press freedom. Or even complain about the Hollywood blacklist. Leftists now are the new McCarthyites.”
A “McCarthyite” is someone who employs practices that endorses the use of unfair allegations and investigations.
McCarthyism was a vociferous campaign against alleged communists in the US government and other institutions carried out under Senator Joseph McCarthy in the period 1950–54. Many of the accused were blacklisted or lost their jobs, although most did not in fact belong to the Communist Party.”
Today’s “McCarthyite” attacks those who dare to disagree with their Marxist/socialist/communist platform.
“The censorship caused an uproar, especially since it landed right in the middle of both federal and congressional debate about reining in the power of Big Tech companies.”
“Google wasn’t subtle. It showed the world that it has too much control over our lives and that the most powerful company on Earth is also an enemy of the very freedoms that protect it.”
“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was one of several members of Congress to criticize Google. He sent a letter to the company saying its actions raised ‘serious concerns that Google is abusing its monopoly power in an effort to censor political speech with which it disagrees.’”
It is my belief that MrEricksonRules.com has been a victim of this censorship as well.
Those of you familiar with my site can understand Google wanting to censor me.
I deal with trumpeting the truth, and exposing those who attempt to hide and pervert it.
Based on the statistics provided by my website provider, it is pretty obvious that web searches have been directed away from my website, especially within the US, even though I pay Google to help promote my website!
This would constitute fraud as well as censorship, wouldn’t it?
I have contacted Google Ads regarding this situation, but have not received any communication back as of yet.
What a surprise.
Isn’t it time to deal with this monopoly?
The government broke up “The” phone company at one point.
The only problem is that many of our politicians like Google being able to censor the internet in their favor, even though it is contrary to our Constitutional rights.
“The co-founders of The Federalist, Ben Domenech and Sean Davis, wrote in The Wall Street Journal: ‘The episode illustrates how dangerous the combination of partisan media and monopolistic tech companies is to America.’”
“They couldn’t be more right. Since this incident occurred, Facebook took down some ads for President Trump on its site, once more bowing to the leftists inside and outside its company.”
“It was also revealed that Twitter had tried to pressure Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and threatened to shut down his account ‘permanently.’”
“Cotton had gotten in trouble with Twitter over the use of the words ‘No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.’ If America is to survive as a free nation, then we might modify Cotton’s statement: ‘No quarter for censorship.’”
How dare he oppose “insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters!”
“In practical terms, that means Big Tech and its leftist activist buddies in the news media have made it clear they don’t believe in free speech or free press for any that oppose them. They have made it clear they don’t want a free election this year or any time after. They have made it clear they are at war with the very nation that protects the freedoms they have used to become so powerful.”
“So now the big question: Are we going to let them get away with it?”
If Sleepy Joe wins in November, this will just become standard operating procedure.
