RUSH: I’m gonna tell you something gonna be interesting to watch out there, folks. I have this story right here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. It is from the Associated Press. “A US appeals court…” That would be the US Ninth Circus Court of Appeals. “A US appeals court ordered YouTube,” owned by Google, loved by the Regime. Google and Regime are inseparable, except — except — the Ninth Circus has ordered Google, through its YouTube subsidiary, “to take down an anti-Muslim film that sparked violence in many parts of the Middle East and death threats to the actors.”
What’s this? A business, Google, can be forced not to serve a customer — that would be the YouTube uploader here — because it might offend somebody’s religious beliefs? This is a perfect example. I’m gonna spell this out for you. Just hang in there, because this is a perfect example of how some religious beliefs are more equal than other religious beliefs. You have a business here, Google.
They are now being forced by the government not to serve a customer, the YouTube uploader, the video maker, because it might offend someone’s religious beliefs, and the Ninth Circus is basing this on an actress who’s only in the movie for five seconds, in a trumped-up lawsuit. It has nothing to do with that, however. Even the Ninth Circus admits this isn’t the way the Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown orders work. Here’s why this is happening.
President Obama told the UN back in February of 2012, quote, “The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” quote/unquote. That’s Obama two years ago at the UN in September. Google says they’re gonna fight this all the way to the Supreme Court. They don’t want the government telling them what they can and can’t upload –especially when they’re Google. They’re blue and the Regime is blue. So we got a little blue-on-blue action here, and it’s gonna be fun to watch this.
“YouTube resisted calls by President Barack Obama and other world leaders to take down the video, arguing that to do so amounted to unwarranted government censorship and would violate the Google-owned company’s free speech protections.” Google says: Hey, you want to post something on YouTube? As long as you own the rights to it, have at it. We have freedom here.
But here comes the Regime. Ah, ah, ah, ah! As Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Even you, Sergey, and even you, Larry!” That’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the founders.
