Alphabet Inc aka Google has taken one more step to becoming the malevolent tech overlords that they have always wanted to be.
They have removed upstart social media network Gab.ai’s mobile app from the Play Store for what they call “hate speech.”
If I had a nickel for every time I have been the target of “hate speech” on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Periscope or YouTube (all owned by Facebook, Twitter or Google by the way) I’d have a lot of nickels!
I have stated many times that if Gab had a mobile app I’d leave Twitter forever; well, they tried.
Skynet said no.
I am wholly against the Government mandating what businesses can and can’t do. It is my opinion that the anti-trust laws created to thwart Rockefeller and his ilk were unconstitutional. However, Rockefeller was merely trying to control the flow of oil across America. Google is trying to control the flow of information, which is also unconstitutional.
With that in mind, they must be stopped before they succeed in stopping red-blooded American’s from speaking freely.
