Google is censoring

This is weird:
The tech industry’s opposition to a proposed bill is causing Google and other big companies to be lumped in with sex traffickers, such as in this headline on a New York Times column earlier this month: “Google and Sex Traffickers Like”

Facebook, Twitter and other companies also oppose the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act of 2017, which would update the 1990s-era Communications Decency Act to hold website operators such as Backpage accountable for enabling sex trafficking.
I don't believe that Backpage promotes child sex trafficking. I just don't see any proof of it. So this probably is a bad law.

But Google, Facebook, and Twitter are on the forefront of censoring right-wing opinions on the internet. They are currently conspiring to shut down Gab:
The social media service Gab, which bills itself as Twitter for the alt-right, is on the verge of being booted from the internet.

Andrew Torba, CEO of the company, posted on Monday that “Gab's domain registrar has given us 5 days to transfer our domain or they will seize it.” ...

Prior to the suit, Google had suspended Gab from its Google Play app store in August. Google said it removed Gab because of its insufficient “level of moderation, including for content that encourages violence and advocates hate against groups of people.” The company said the app violates the store’s terms of service.
Gab is just a forum, where ppl express opinion. Violent threats are not permitted. Some advocate limiting immigration, but that is considered hate speech.

Meawhilte, Google is hosting much more offensive content, like this YouTube video: XXXTENTACION - Look At Me!.

Google and Facebook are also in trouble for posting Islamic terrorist propaganda.

So Google and Facebook say that child sex trafficking and Islamic terrorism info are just fine, but political opinions against immigration have to be banned! Those companies must really be run by some sick creeps.
