In what has to be THE most bone-headed view of the year (maybe of the century)… Google Calls Ben Shapiro A Nazi.
In a Facebook post, Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire, described the email as “UNBELIEVABLE.” Shapiro is a practicing Orthodox Jew and a graduate of a Yeshiva high school.
What they really mean is, “Ben Shapiro doesn’t agree with us, and we can’t counter his arguments, so let’s just censor him.”
The best quote comes from Rep. Dan Crenshaw, see the link below, where he asks, “What kind of education do the people at Google have?” To label an Orthodox Jew, who is routinely attacked by the alt-right, a Nazi is the stupidest position Google has had in a long time. And that is saying something.
The video of Rep. Crenshaw is worth the 5 minutes of your time. Watch – Rep. Dan Crenshaw Slams Big Tech for Classifying Jewish Conservatives as ‘Nazis’.
So the first thing to do, is stop using Google. DuckDuckGo is a fine search engine, and handles most of my web searches. I still have 2 email addresses that are Gmail. (one is tied to this blog), but I will be changing that in the very near future. (I have several other email providers, aside from Google. If anyone has a candidate they like, please leave a comment.)
