Google Suppresses Criticism of MoveOn.org

All the paranoid things people say about Microsoft taking over the world might actually be true — if you say them about Google. The latest on the "Don't Be Evil" folks who totally dominate the search engine and online advertising markets:

Internet giant Google has banned advertisements critical of MoveOn.org, the far-left advocacy group that caused a national uproar last month when it received preferential treatment from The New York Times for its "General Betray Us" message.
The ads banned by Google were placed by a firm working for Republican Sen. Susan Collins' re-election campaign. Collins is seeking her third term. […]
The banned advertisements said, "Susan Collins is MoveOn’s primary target. Learn how you can help" and "Help Susan Collins stand up to the MoveOn.org money machine." The ads linked to Collins’ campaign Web site with a headline reading "MoveOn.org has made Susan Collins their #1 target." The Collins Web site claims that MoveOn has contributed $250,000 to her likely Democratic opponent and has run nine ads against her costing nearly $1 million. The Web site also displays MoveOn.org’s controversial "General Betray Us" ad.

Google's excuse — that the ads infringed on MoveOn.org's trademark — is best described as preposterous.

Google owns YouTube, which has removed videos uploaded by Michelle Malkin. But who knew it was possible to fall to the left of an infamous RINO like Susan Collins?

It's not paranoid to say Microsoft are out to take over the world. Microsoft are out to take over the world. They've stated as much several times, which at least makes them honest about their intentions.

Google, on the other hand, pretend that they're not, which makes them dishonest on top of megalomaniacal. It's frustrating. They produce a lot of really good technology, but I'm seriously considering severing all my links with them now and using other services.

That's the only solution I can think of. I did it with MS, and I guess google will have to suffer the wrath of me not funding them too. Oooh, scary.

I just wanted to say that I think moonbattery.com is great! I can't believe this site has been around for so long and it's taken me so long to find it. Nice to know I'm not the only one seeing moonbattery everywhere! Cheers and keep up the good work.

Yet another reason not to use Google as a search engine. I mean, please, can anyone trust anything Google puts up?

Yet another example of the Left's terror of the truth. Like Count Dracula and the cross (or better yet, like cockroaches when you flip on the lights at night), they cringe and run away as fast as their six little legs will carry them whenever something contrary to their worldview (like reality) exposes their fantasy life for what it is.

Ask why Google will honor every small insignificant holiday with changes to their logo, but have yet to change their logo on memorial day, veteran's day, or VE day.

They're a bunch of pot-smoking hippies hanging out in their California compound.

Bastadges. At least it yields appropriate links when search terms like "Molten Metal Technology" in conjunction with "Maurice Strong ". Cosy, that.
