Tulsi Gabbard Suing Google for $50 Million+ For Banning Her Ads at the Peak Moment of Interest In Her

Representative Tulsi Gabbard, the long-shot presidential candidate from Hawaii, said in a federal lawsuit that Google infringed on her free speech when it briefly suspended her campaign’s advertising account after the first Democratic debate in June.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday in a federal court in Los Angeles, is believed to be the first time a presidential candidate has sued a major technology firm.

In a twist that reflects Ms. Gabbard's unorthodox political views, the claim that her speech was stifled by Google is similar to complaints made over the last year in Republican circles. Few -- if any -- Democrats have raised similar concerns.

Corporatist Throne-Sniffer voice on:

Well, you know, they made a lot of money. They therefore have the right to dictate to the rest of us what our political and social and cultural trajectory will be until another competitor comes along to knock them off their perch.

And oh, by the way, we also think it's quite within their rights to conspire with other Tech Monsters to squelch all possible competitors.

So when will there actually be competition?

Well, if we have our way, never. That's the perfect state of free-market competition, with slave markets and no competition.

You wouldn't understand. Kevin D. Williamson explained it some time ago in an article called "Please Murder My Low-Rent Extended Family So I Can Rise Through the Mid-Level Social Ranks Unburdened by Their Weight or Odor."
