Google Shuts Down Another Conservative Blog: KSM Trial Edition
Breitbart ^ | 13 May 2012 | Christian Browne

Posted on 05/14/2012 5:39:59 PM PDT by for-q-clinton

This past Sunday morning, I took to my blog, The New York Conservative, to opine on the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (“KSM”) and his fellow terrorists. The full text of the post is available further below.

The New York Conservative was a blog hosted by Google Blogger. I started the blog in February of this year and had posted 17 columns prior to the KSM entry, commenting on political matters and issues affecting the Catholic Church. I would post my entries on Facebook and occasionally would email a link to friends or other interested parties. I received no complaints about the blog whatsoever.

On Monday, the pro-U.S. security group Secure American Now posted a link to my KSM piece on its website. The link received numerous hits and generated multiple comments on the Secure America Now page.

However, a few hours after Secure America Now linked to the New York Conservative, I received a form email, no reply possible, from Google Blogger informing me that the New York Conservative had been deleted. The email classified my blog as “spam” in violation of Google’s terms of service. There was no further explanation. My URL was dead; all of the content, everything I ever posted, was gone.

I made two telephone calls to Google to protest and demand a reason for the deletion of my blog. The Google representatives told me that Google does not provide “live support” for Google Blogger, meaning you cannot speak with anyone at all about the deletion. The representatives directed me to the Google Blogger website, where the company extols its commitment to free speech and its great reluctance to censor its bloggers.

Looks like Google has learned a lot from the Red Chinese.

Yup! More rainbows & unicorns from the “Don’t Be Evil” Elint snooper car guys at Google.

They shut down my YouTube channel after I posted a video showing a late-night Denny’s being COMPETELY destroyed by rioting err...YUTES.

Basically if you post anything that goes against multi-culturalism they flag you three times, and then you’re history.

That goes double if you post any videos with themes critical of the Religion of Peace. My advice is after you get the FIRST flag that you AUTOMATICALLY start a new channel and tell all your subscribers the URL of the new channel.

DO NOT WAIT for them 2 ban you.

If the blog was cited for spamming I’m wondering if somebody put some kind of spamming loop on it.

The people that Obama has hired to do internet stuff probably do different kinds of dirt.

Sounds like they didn’t give this guy any flags. Or at least not that he knew of.

Liberals don’t censor things.

Now pay your taxes. Your government is broke.

‘Arab Spring’ Google is promoting new businesses, encouraging alternative website and video hosting, alternative search engines, and legal archives (justia). There is nothing unique about what they do. Their search engine used to be DEC’s Altavista. Google is an advertising business. Many already use non-tracking interfaces such as Ixquick to avoid their incessant spamware, and many block their ‘doubleclick’ tracking business. Many wouldn't care if it weren't for Google’s naive support of Marxism, dictators, Islamic Jihad, antisemitism, and racissm; but that is more than enough to inspire me to always look for alternatives. Google’s searches return lots of garbage, and the scrubbing of so much essential information is unforgivable. If they are twenty millisecond's faster than another search engine, you more than lose that advantage by having to sift through the paid sites at the top of their list of search results. Vendors pay for top billing. Let's help Google follow GM and Chrysler, neither of which will ever get my business again.

Conservatives need a subservive method to get around google and youtube censorship. They close one web-site and another is waiting in the wings.

Currently I have backup websites and channeles in case Google, at the behest of communists, closes down one. If conseratives are alert to the game and cooperative, google can’t do sh!t against conservatives. Never die.

There's a page on google for reporting a "spam" blog. I suspect that a whole bunch of Lefties got together an flagged the guy's blog, and google has an automated procedure to shut down blogs after a certain number of "spam" alerts.

Easy way to test this: find a "progressive" blog on blogspot.com or blogger.com, and "FREEP" the spam alert for it.
