Response to Useful Idiot @ NY Times Shilling For Google/YouTube

.
To the gentle people (idiots) of MSM, in particular the NY Times –
Please! Stop wasting the world’s time writing articles defending Google’s failure, both morally and legally, to remove terrorist videos from YouTube!
Don’t you get it? When you shill for them you are complicit in the atrocity!
The simple fact is – aiding and abetting terrorists is against the law.

Scott Shane – NYTimes.com – “Radical Cleric Still Speaks On YouTube” – March 4, 2011
One would expect (wish) the article to be an indictment of Google’s continual disregard for the military men and women who put their lives on the line for freedom loving people around the world. And, just as important, the continual disregard for the law which Google flagrantly ignores.
No such luck. Instead Mr. Shane just argued for Google’s limitations.

Eleven times in this article, the excuses, rationalizations, personal opinions, are advanced as to why terrorist videos remain on YouTube:
a revealing case study in the complexity of……
YouTube relies on viewers to flag……
it was never likely that his pronouncements would disappear……
scores of other sites without YouTube’s rules also host……
There’s no way as a practical matter to wipe this material off……
It’s very unrealistic to believe that any action……
Google, says……That ratio makes prescreening impractical……
YouTube relies on its users to police the content……
The variety and volume……makes it more difficult……
Rep Anthony Weiner ……the company is “wrestling with a difficult issue……
It may be that the crowdsourcing……becomes the ultimate answer……
Oh! And not to be forgotten the flowery description of Awlaki’s performances – “In eloquent American English” – that is, I believe, utterly indecent but I am sure Awlaki approved.

Mr. Shane. Per the U.S. Department of State with reference to Foreign Terrorist Organizations – “It is unlawful for a person in the United States or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to knowingly provide “material support or resources” to a designated FTO.”

You can argue all you want for Anwar al-Awlaki not being officially on a terrorist list as designated by the FBI despite a kill order out on him by our executive branch, and you would be right. But it doesn’t change the fact that his videos incite terrorism. Nor does it change the fact that there are thousands of terrorist or terrorist supporting videos on YouTube.

You would have done better by your fellow Americans and our allies Mr. Shane, not to carry Google’s water. We lost two young airmen on the 2nd of this month in a terrorist incident in Germany. The killer was influenced by YouTube videos. Had you already forgotten those men two days later when you wrote your article attempting to influence your readers that we are just going to have to live with terrorism as supported by Google/YouTube?

Rusty Shackleford wrote in a piece about the deaths of Airman Cuddeback and Airman Alden that “We have got to do better at fighting the propaganda produced by the enemy.” He was actually speaking about radical Islam, but the truth of the matter is – the same sentence is appropriate to the MSM.

I shall repeat myself – it is against the law to support terrorists. Perhaps if Google were made an example of by a few fines being slapped on them, then maybe, just maybe Facebook and the other “social” networking organizations would examine the content of their own sites.

Psssssttttt – Google!  Whatever Happened To – Don’t Be Evil!
