NOTE: I find this to be true. Today I searched alternative search engines to bring up Dr. Mercola’s site. Everywhere I saw derogatory articles, posts on his ‘doubtful’ credibility and could not bring up his site at all. I tried three different search engines. The censorship has indeed cracked down. So what are they afraid of? Folk might find out some truth about the pharmaceutical industry? About how the natural health industry was sidelined. Been saying for a while now, the day will come that sites like this one will be history. The net’s drawing tighter.
(Natural News) There’s a strong argument to be made that if iron-fisted tyranny ever comes to America, the statists in Silicon Valley will be leading the charge. These people (including workers at Facebook, Twitter, and especially Google) think nothing of undermining the United States Constitution and the freedom of speech in order to fulfill the Left’s twisted political agendas. Silicon Valley’s ongoing and seemingly unstoppable censorship of the Internet is, to a large extent, planting the seeds of tyranny in the fabric of America.
Google censors content it doesn’t like
Late last month, Ray Gano published an article on his website discussing how Google is suppressing medical information and other content that the company deems unfit for readers. On page 108 of Google’s handbook, for example, Google states that “pages that directly contradict well established scientific or medical consensus for queries seeking scientific or medical information” are suppressed on its search engine, “unless the query indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”
Notably, Google also states that “pages that directly contradict well-established historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories)” are also hidden from users, again, “unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”
The question, of course, is as follows: does Google have to abide by the United States Constitution and the freedom of speech as outlined in the First Amendment, or does it get to dictate which users get to practice their rights and which users don’t? Considering the fact that the Constitution is the highest law in the land, Google should be compelled to abide by it, regardless of whether or not the page contradicts “well established scientific or medical consensus” or “well-established historical facts.”
