On Wednesday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) brilliantly grilled Derek Slater, Google Global Director of Information Policy, over revelations from a Project Veritas video of political bias at Google. Crenshaw’s questioning included his anger that according to the Project Veritas video, Google had referred to Daily Wire Editor-in Chief Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson and Dennis Prager as Nazis. Crenshaw snapped, “What kind of education do people at Google have so that they think that religious Jews are Nazis? Three of three of these people had family members killed in the Holocaust, Ben Shapiro is the number one target of the alt-right. And yet you people operate off the premise that he’s a Nazi.”
As libertarian-leaning Twitter user “Neontaster” tweets, “What’s going on with Facebook, what’s going on with [Google-owned] YouTube, what’s going on with Reddit — they are playing with fire and will end up regulated. Whether right or wrong, at this rate it’s going to happen.”
UPDATE: It’s on YouTube competitor BitChute, which you may recall was banned by PayPal a while back. It’s as if these big tech companies stand shoulder to shoulder against competitors and political opponents.
