Google Protecting Obama?

Dear Blogger user,

This is a message from the Blogger team.

Your blog, at, has been identified as a potential spam blog. You will not be able to publish posts to your blog until we review your site and confirm that it is not a spam blog.


The Blogger Team
It looks like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned blogging system that has an anti-Obama message. Yes, it sure seems that Google has begun to go through its many thousands of blogs to lock out the owners of anti-Obama blogs so that the noObama message is effectively squelched. Thus far, Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing. Boy, it must be nice for Barack Obama to have an ally powerful enough to silence his opponents like that! It isn't just conservative sites that Google's Blogger platform is eliminating. For instance ... 
Warner Todd Houston deals with it here, but I dunno.  The same thing happened to me a few years ago.  I'm still not sure whether it was a purge, or simply idiots at the switch.  The reason I'm inclined to think retribution is that I have never read about lefty blogs experiencing the same problems.  Lefty videos similarly do not disappear from You Tube.  Anyway, we're in a war, so stuff like this will keep happening until we win and exile them to St. Helena.

Google's motto is "Do no evil." But they are removing video right and left (they own youtube). For now, I'm insidiously insuating, but I'm close to over the edge.

The other day, I wanted to show this mostly innocous vid to my bro, but it's locked to 18 and older. It's harmless and funny, but over 18? Why?

Guard the intertubes, Rodg, coz they gonna come at you just like Red China did.

St. Helena? That was good enough for an emperor. Send the MFCS's to Iran or Darfur where they can stick crosses in urine all they want, but it ain't gonna be pretty when they yap about freedom of speech.
It's war.

Google's motto might be "Do know evil" but Google makes the decisions on what they feel is evil.

Here is the article on it.

One of the corksucker founders is a Rooshin. They're thugs. But it sounds like the basis of a nice class action suit, freedom of speech and all that, eh wot?

Oh, please, Casca. You know better than that. The first amendment clearly states CONGRESS shall make no law abridging... freedom of speech. Google is not Congress; it is a private enterprise.

I switched to wordpress long ago, and if they ever were to censor my very blah little blog, I would just buy a domain and go at it. Domains are cheap. Most internet account subscriptions come with a decent chunk of space on which to build a website. In short, there are alternatives to Google.

Sometimes I drinks a bit. In that case, launch the google worm!

Talk to the folks at the Jawa Report.

This ain't deliberate on Google's part, just clueless.

The Obama'tards are taking a hint from the cyber-jihadis, and filing false spam complaints about blogger sites they don't like.
