Boy, Google has some cojones, don’t they?
If you don’t know what I mean by that, Google can translate it for you.
The enormous internet search engine corporation has long been accused of attempting to inject their undue influence on American politics. At first, these allegations were found only in the dark corners of the internet, in places where those pontificating on the subjects would be simply relegated to the realm of “conspiracy theory”.
But then Google got aggressive and blatant in their railroading of the rhetoric. Soon, everyone could see the writing on the wall: Google was so big, and had influence over so much of the internet, that they couldn’t be stopped.
Then they went for the jugular, not only banning conservative voices and ideologies, but even the democratic dialogues that they disagree with.
Presidential candidate and military veteran Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is suing Google after the tech giant blocked her ads account shortly after the first Democrat presidential debate, when Gabbard became the most-searched-for candidate in the Democrat field.
Gabbard’s complaint accuses Google of censoring the candidate at the very moment when millions of Americans wanted to learn more about her. It also accuses Google of sending Gabbard’s campaign emails to people’s Gmail spam folders at a “disproportionately high rate.”
Via Gabbard’s legal complaint against Google:
At the height of Gabbard’s popularity among Internet searchers in the immediate hours after the debate ended, and in the thick of the critical post-debate period (when television viewers, radio listeners, newspaper read-ers, and millions of other Americans are discussing and searching for presidential candidates), Google suspended Tulsi’s Google Ads account without warning.
For hours, as millions of Americans searched Google for information about Tulsi, and as Tulsi was trying, through Google, to speak to them, her Google Ads account was arbitrarily and forcibly taken offline. Throughout this period, the Campaign worked frantically to gather more information about the suspension; to get through to someone at Google who could get the Account back online; and to understand and remedy the restraint that had been placed on Tulsi’s speech—at precisely the moment when everyone wanted to hear from her.
The revelation of the lawsuit comes just days after a Google engineer-turned-whistleblower unloaded on the company in an interview with Project Veritas, claiming that the organization is inherently biased and using their immense scope and power to promote those biases.
