Google says no to White House

They tried to get Google to remove the anti-muslim clip from YouTube. They are going to restrict its access in a few counties: Libya, Egypt, India and Indonesia.

Good for YouTube. Devout Muslims skins are too thin of skin, totally lacking a sense of humor (common to all fundamentals). They have no issue with their own anti-Jewish and anti-Christian rhetoric - which is more extensive and encouraged by theocratic governments and clerics and backed by acts of violence.

We show weakness when we kowtow to them. We are a land of free speech and we can make NO exceptions for Muslims. We should not be pacifying them - they do not respect us and they detest signs of weakness. I would guess that the video was just a pretext for the riots. The number involved are just hundreds out of a billion Muslims yet our government apologizes for the legal actions of their own citizens for the sake of peace - which is an illusion.

Jim,
While I agree with several of your points, it appears Google made up its own mind on what it would do:

In other words, I don't see Google being censored by the White House so I think your title is a bit misleading.

Every true American should be embarrassed by the Obama Administration.
