Google rejects White House request to pull Mohammad film clip
rooters ^ | Sep 15, 2012 | Gerry Shih

(Reuters) - Google Inc rejected a request by the White House on Friday to reconsider its decision to keep online a controversial YouTube movie clip that has ignited anti-American protests in the Middle East.

The Internet company said it was censoring the video in India and Indonesia after blocking it on Wednesday in Egypt and Libya, where U.S. embassies have been stormed by protestors enraged over depiction of the Prophet Mohammad as a fraud and philanderer.

Good for Google!

What’s next White House? Going to try to get Michelle Bachmann’s speeches about Islam deleted? Or Rick Santorum? Where’s the line?

Anyone “Fact Checked” the film against the Koran and Hadith?

If the “plot” and “dialog” are factual, subtitles showing the relevant references & quotes would be interesting.

Of course, in today’s crazy world.

I find it wildly ironic that Liberal progressives in the US have trained the world in how to be offended....and now that they have shown them how power can be obtained by being offended the scum of the world claim to be offended by a film. Liberals are demanding the film not offend.

Okay

These same pontificating scum liberals are also the ones who claimed that all of hollywoods trash is not offensive, especially to the Christian that “YOU DONT HAVE TO WATCH IT” and on and on and on.

So

The very ones who caused the problem are actually the ones who now cause another to try and solve yet another problem...ALL of their own creation. THIS is what happens when you are devoid of morality and are spineless as well.

Google rejects White House request
///
LIBERAL Google, “refuses” to pull a video,
that the liberals claim is causing people to be killed?
-
when Google has quickly removed many other,
higher quality videos, for much less reasons?
(often simply from a few complaints).
-
obviously, if Obama really wanted the video pulled,
it would be...

“a request by the White House “

I thought the president was sworn to uphold the constitution? Obama did it TWICE!

Good for google and shame on tyrant Obama

Muslims need to learn, everybody’s religion gets made fun of, and when it happens you have full right to get angry and voice your opinion. But You DON’T have the right to throw violent temper tantraums and kill people. And if you do, then your religion will justifiable be viewed as a religion of violent moronic crybabies.

“...depiction of the Prophet Mohammad as a fraud and philanderer.”

It’s only slander and/or libel it it’s NOT TRUE.

That’s the problem the muzz have with all this: their beloved so-called “prophet” was all that and more...

You do realize this is all a head fake.

Publicly the WH asked Google to remove it.

Privately, they have gotten Google’s guarantee it will stay on Youtube.

The video is the only thing that supports the WH claim that the rebellion is all about the film.

I watched the video, and during one part, one actor says, “and what is your name”, and the (GAY PORN STAR) other actor says, “MOHAMMED”. However, that audio sequence is so OBVIOUSLY DUBBED it is ridiculous.

The ‘insult’ to Islam is as falsely generated as the dubbed over voice.

It is a false flag to obscure the real reason for the ‘riots’, and why Obama is DOING NOTHING.

I’d like to say good for Google.

... but the tinfoil hat part of me wonders if this is just a ruse. 0bama can claim that he tried to stop it, Google refused him, the violence continues, and 0bama shifts the blame.

So is Google in on the 0bama plan, or are they genuinely defending free speech rights? YouTube has pulled plenty of things in the past where there was no legal reason to do so, but simply because it was offensive to the liberal agenda.

Let’s put it this way. If the violence continues and Obama continues to blame Freedom of Speech for unsecured government buildings and embassies, it will get old to the American people.

If, on the other hand, they buy it, they don’t deserve to ever get back the America they once knew. They’re too stupid.

I guess it’s up to us to continue posting and speading the truth and I don’t mean post it to the choir either.

If Obama keeps playing politics with terrorism he could drop in the polls in places like NY.

If we start seeing this stuff happen in our own cities and in places like our own Walmarts he’d likely clamp down on our freedoms.

We don’t even know if this movie really exists, or who made it and why. This could be total manipulation.

I have a very good source from my bud who works at Dogpile that even they were contacted by the White Hut and they refused. Almost everyone there hates Odumbo..

Thanks nickcarraway, agreed, it's not likely to be anything else -- otherwise, what timing, eh? Here's some hack cobbling together a vid that is likely to go unseen, and yet every two-bit jihadist mullah knows all about it overnight.

No, I agree with Google on this one.

This is really like a two year old having a temper tantrum and a lot of supposed adults all rushing to quiet the toddler. I read yesterday that in Khartoum the US and German consulates were called on the floor and apologized for this "movie".

This is nothing more than a power play on the part of islamic radicals and should be ignored as much as possible.

Google should tell them to shut up and go away.
