Pajama Media brings us this article describing how Google sent a threatening letter to a conservative site demanding that they pull one of their articles, or Google would cut off their Google generated ad revenue. This kind of activity is a direct violation of the Sherman Anti-trust Act. Google should be broken up by the government right now to put a stop to this sort of blackmail activity and to send a clear warning to other leftist corporations that anti-trust violations will not be tolerated.
On Tuesday evening, Google sent a conservative website an ultimatum: remove one of your articles, or lose the ability to make ad revenue on your website. The website was strong-armed into removing the content, and then warned that the page was “just an example and that the same violations may exist on other pages of this website.”
“Yesterday morning, we received a very bizarre letter from Google issuing us an ultimatum,” Shane Trejo, media relations director of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Michigan, wrote on The Liberty Conservative. “Either we were to remove a particular article or see all of our ad revenues choked off in an instant. This is the newest method that Big Brother is using to enforce thought control.”
The ultimatum came in the form of an email from Google’s ad placement service AdSense. The email specifically listed an article on The Liberty Conservative’s site, stating that the article violated AdSense’s policies.
