GOOGLE'S DISCRIMINATORY LEFTISM
Breitbart ^ | April 4, 2014 | By Ben Shapiro

Posted on 04/04/2014 8:31:49 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

On February 6, Google revealed not only its dramatic bias against conservatism, but against reality. How else to explain an email received by WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah with regard to the Google AdSense policy?

The email announced that AdSense would be cancelling WorldNetDaily’s account thanks to a “policy violation email this morning regarding negative/hate speech particularly with the repeated references to ‘black mobs,’ although I don’t know that this is specifically what it’s limited to.” According to Farah, Google wrote, “The reviewers cited a number articles [sic] with usage of this term specifically and in general asks that no ad code is placed on articles containing hate/anti or sensitive content as this is against Adsense policies and does not provide a good experience for users and advertisers.”

So what, exactly, was WorldNetDaily’s heinous offense? WND reported on the so-called “knockout game” phenomenon in which mobs of black teens attacked white and Jewish passersby in a macho attempt to prove their testosterone-filled bona fides. Google did not reference any specific misuses of the term “black mob,” nor did they identify any articles that actually constituted hate speech. “Just the term ‘black mob’ was disallowed, both within the content of WND stories and any comment left from viewers within the forums on WND.com,” Farah explained.

According to Farah, the issue goes beyond simply WorldNetDaily. “[W]e heard from a reliable third-party source,” he stated, “that Google has a list of sites they actively monitor for policy violations. Apparently WND is on that list because other sites with same or similar content are not getting flagged.”

Perhaps most disturbing, Google’s decision to pull WND’s AdSense account did not restrict its scrutiny to the actual written material by WND staffers or writers; it also encompassed the comments section...

So free speech is not supported by the socialists at google.
Adsense several years ago paid $6,000 to $9,000 a month per million views. I have read the amount has dropped due to the obama economy.

Any smartphone that runs Android will also run any of several varieties of Linux specifically designed for smartphones. It might not be quite as slick, but you won’t be tied down by “we’re not evil” Google.

Well, it is starting to appear that homosexuality may very well end up being the mark of the beast.

“Maybe” — if it really was, nobody could procreate (unless everyone is a son/daughter of a turkey baster or something like that).

It does tap into hell in a way that a lot of other sins don’t (maybe sorcery would, I’m not sure).

“Values” are not going to cut it against Satan. Actual live allegiance to Jesus the Christ is needed.

Homosexuality having been around for ever just seems to be suddenly right at the front lines of the spiritual battle of the world we were discussing in another thread. That's my thought. Not a prophecy but a thought.
Satan has become very emboldened.

This is not to fear but an acknoweledgement.

The nonbeliever's think we fear such things.

They don't understand what they need to really fear.

Well the USA has taken Homosexality and Abortion onto the political world stage as if that’s the determining factors to unite peoples as much as divide them.

Not so sure it has anything to do with the mark of the beast, or what exactly you mean by stating so....but some believe the Anti-Christ will be homosexual....

Whatever, we are surely headed into darkness worldwide....and all men are certainly primed to accept whatever/whomever appears able to unite the world and calm the nations down.

There was a time when Nation Leaders were respected for their office held, even if people disagreed with them...today nobody respects even the offices!

We should consider the digital revolution in electioneering to be an existential threat to our constitutional democracy no less dangerous than the inflood of illegal immigrants.

In the wake of the presidential election disaster of 2012, Republicans, conservatives and FReepers undertook to examine what went wrong and one of the things which became clear was the abject failure of Romney's ground campaign, especially in Ohio, and, indeed, any part of his campaign which was conditioned upon digital expertise. Romney, the vaunted manager from the private sector, was wholly deceived by his paid people and shockingly mismanaged his campaign. Meanwhile, Obama, under the tutelage as we see in this article of people from silicone Valley and especially from Google, brought a new weapon to campaigning, the equivalent of the introduction of the crossbow or the atomic bomb to warfare.

In general, the Obama campaign coordinated all elements of social media, paid media, consumer psychology and old-fashioned boots on the ground. They employed a team of psychiatrists to tell them what sort of appeals would sell to whom and coordinated, by computer, multiple visits on preselected and psychoanalyzed targets.

The result, we conservatives were no less gobsmacked than Romney and his campaign organization. We could not fathom how the American people were not repelled by the extremist policies and counterproductive economic nostrums, not to mentioned the assault on pocketbooks, jobs, and liberties represented by Obamacare. But they evidently were not, however, the conservative base at least to some degree was deflated by Romney's appeal which was devastating to his election chances in places like Ohio.

To this date we have no compelling evidence that the Republican establishment has caught on to this brave new world imposed on American politics by Obama's collaboration with Google. They say they have changed their ways, but I for one believe virtually nothing which comes out of the Republican National Committee.

There is, of course, other explanations for the disaster of 2012. They start with our school system which has implications for our media which, in turn, creates a landscape extremely hostile to conservatism and even to Rino Republicanism in the general election. Even more important is the dramatic demographic shift resulting in an electorate simply ungrounded in the story of American exceptionalism, the virtues of capitalism, the rule law, and the paramount importance of our Constitution and otherwise appallingly ignorant of basic political issues.

In addition to the peril of unrestricted immigration, there is equal danger to the conservative cause from this new kind of electioneering pioneered by Google. It is not just a threat to Republican chances at the polls, it is a mortal threat to our liberty. To witness Obamaism prevailing is simply to witness the end the grand American experiment.

I have a Nokia 928 Windows phone and love it. Great pictures (Carl Zeiss lens). I don’t recall the newer model # but it supposedly has an even better lens. I was going to buy a new camera, but don’t need to now.

America had been elevated by gospel belief. It wasn’t perfect, it was distorted by various theological hobby horses of actual denominations. But it managed to avoid the “gay rage” until a few decades ago.

I think a big part of the groundwork for this problem is America dropping the gospel ball. Among this is sexual purity problems. Divorce rates for self proclaimed Christians sadly parallel those of nonbelievers with otherwise parallel demographics. As America cared about this less and less, this monstrosity finally got a serious social toehold. It demanded to leave the closet, and hypocrites found themselves too weak to keep standing for sexual purity.

The other day looking around at random in Wikipedia, I came across some information (hopefully accurate) about how Roman pagan society dealt with sexual purity. Apparently the pantheon they believed in was enough to motivate them. There wasn’t any “god of homosexuality.” They did have Venus, and likenesses of her decorated the public baths in order to encourage purity. When people offended the gods enough in that system, it was held to result in the appearance of a “prodigy” which did not have the positive connotation it does today. Instead it was a monster demonstrating vice in a way that could not be ignored.

Paul’s letter to the Romans, in the passage (1:21ff) that descends into outlining how rejection of God leads to homosexual conduct and other nasty things, is interesting to both compare and contrast to those Roman ideas. Even the pagan pantheon told them to predict such events from displeasing the gods. So drawing the parallel from that theory to what happens with rejection of a single actual God would at once ring a bell with them.

I do have to say, that Christians have gotten too comfortable with being satisfied with social virtue. That can’t carry anybody to heaven. Even pagan gods can effect that kind of virtue. Christians must reframe their battle in deep spiritual terms if they want to win. Just standing back and letting it all go to hell because oh, this is supposedly the final judgment... well to me that’s to shrink from the Great Commission with a cockamamie excuse.

And thus endeth my rant of the moment.

Jim the WND website is not available through Google search, but it is not available through a regular from the browser call, either with www.worldnetdaily.com or www.wnd.com

Neither work from the browser. I don’t understand how Google could be complicit here. Sound like the site is down and if there is someone here that knows Farah...he should be notified.

Of course they are quite liberal in their political views, they could block FR Facebook if it gets real good...
