Judge tosses Gabbard lawsuit against Google

A federal judge on Wednesday tossed Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard's lawsuit against Google, dismissing the Hawaii congresswoman's allegations that the tech giant censored her free speech rights by briefly suspending her presidential campaign ads.

Judge Stephen Wilson shot down Gabbard's key arguments, most prominently affirming that Google is not the government and therefore can't be held liable for violating her First Amendment rights.

The Gabbard campaign's "essential allegation is that Google violated [her campaign's] First Amendment rights by temporarily suspending its verified political advertising account for several hours shortly after a Democratic primary debate," Wilson wrote in a filing on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but Judge Wilson's insistence that " Google is not the government" so strains credibility as to be laughable in the extreme; the only problem with these people, is stopping... laughing, when they say something as preposterously ludacris as is this statement.

Google and Facebook... have morphed into the surveillance/suppression arms of the US government; it is that simple, and just that immense.
