Google Censorship: Bans Sale of DVDs Critical of Obama Administration

After having gone through a recent tiff with the Chinese government over censorship, Google itself is now acting like a red commie regime. According to Alex Jones’ Prison Planet, Google has banned Jones’ DVD compilations from sale through google check out:

Google has sensationally banned all sales through its shopping merchant of a DVD critical of the Obama administration under the terms of its program policy which bars any material deemed to be “advocating against a protected group”. Apparently, Google considers the government to be a “protected group,” and immune from criticism.

Radio talk show host Alex Jones’ Google merchant account has been completely disabled after the search engine giant sent an email claiming the products listed promoted violence, and refused to link to them on the Infowars Yahoo shopping cart.

“I had our new employee Thomas try to get our products from our Yahoo Store get sent to Google shopping so people using google shopping can view our products and purchase them. We went through the steps of signing up for a Google Merchant Account and then submitted our entire product list,” writes Infowars staff member Tim Fruge.

“We were denied. I said OK, we’ll try it again with just a few products. Thinking maybe certain items were possibly flagging it. So we tried it with just a few of Alex’s DVD’s only….nope, still denied. So, I said let’s just try listing Fall Of The Republic. Still denied! We had to contact Google to find out what was going on and that’s when we got the response attached to this email. Just a blanket response, basically calling us a hate group or something to that effect.”

Note that Google banned the sale of Alex Jones’ DVDs through Google Checkout but has not banned Alex Jones’ web sites or his DVD movies in the organic search results pages.

While Google is a private corporation and can pick and choose who it chooses to do business with, it does seem a little hypocritical that they banned the sale of Jones’ DVDs through their Google Checkout merchant accounts. Prison Planet claims that while their DVDs have been banned for Google Program Policy violations such as disseminating hate and promoting violence, books like the Turner Diaries have not been banned.

Censorship concerns are not new for Google, as it was reported that former VP Al Gore had closed-door discussions with Google executives about what he deemed “search quality” issues and actually sat in with Google’s search quality team. The discussions from these meetings have never been made public.

With Google now having a close relationship with the government, namely the NSA, we wonder if perhaps the search behemoth is becoming another instrument of Big Brother.
