Google Now More Committed than Obama to the US Constitution

I am not the biggest fan of Google or its practices, but with the Mohammed movie, the company has shown a greater willingness to stand up and take risks in defense of free speech than the Obama Administration which asked it to take down the video and which is trying to intimidate or jail the filmmaker behind it.

This is all the more extraordinary because as a private company, Google has no obligation to keep the video up and is not bound by the Bill of Rights.

And it is to the greater shame of Barack Hussein Obama, who pledged to uphold the Constitution of the United States, who took an oath to that effect, has shown less commitment to the Constitution, than one of those corporations that his supporters whine endanger our freedom.

Google 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 Muhammad as a fraud and philande

White House officials had asked Google earlier on Friday to reconsider whether the video had violated YouTube’s terms of service. Google said on Wednesday that the video was within its guidelines.

We’re in a pretty bad state of affairs when a company that isn’t bound by the Bill of Rights cares more for it than the White House.

    A great book on how the communists have taken over our institutions – churches, schools, businesses, government, Military and now our court system is –

    The Naked Truth: The Naked Communist – Revisited
    by James C. Bowers
    http://www.amazon.com/The-Naked-Truth-Communist-R

    He discusses how W. Cleon Skousen ( author of the 5000 Year Leap ) was an FBI agent for 16 years and was concerned about the implementation of what he felt were the top 45 stated goals of the communists at that time. You will be shocked how successfully their plans have been completed.
    A MUST READ book for any freedom loving American
    Please pass on to others when done reading – Help wake people up.

    Also watch the youtube video from the 1980’s !!! of Yuri Bezmenov, with G. Edward Griffin (The Creature From Jekyll Island author ) A Soviet KGB defector, he tells how it was his job to infiltrate these institutions and place communist supporters in positions of leadership and power. He was successful in doing so as our present situation implies. Mind boggling stuff.

    I am all for free speech, however, I am not okay with insulting the religious beliefs of others. Politics and religion is one of those things in America that is not necessarily "free." I am a Christian and I would not like to see my religion, my God, being made fun of. That film was not okay. I do not agree with the way that the Muslims are handling the situation, but I can understand their reasoning for being upset. Depicting any God is just not okay. But then again, I am probably one of the few believers in a higher power. America is just getting besides themselves with this whole free speech thing and it is obviously costing lives.

      I agree Anea. But Christians and Jews get insulted daily without needing to murder people. Besides, the extreme Islamists have this as part of their agenda–never insult, question, discuss anything to do with Islam or the prophet Mohammed and are aggressively pushing this at the U.N. Pakistan already has "blasphemy laws" in place. No democracy can exist without free speech, which gives us the power to scrutinize the actions of others.

    Go Google – unless every insulting video regarding Judaism or Christianity is taken off, which won't happen, the video should remain. What is costing lives is the existence of Islam – read 'Why we left Islam', Joel Richardson, or visit the ApostatesofIslam site.
