Well, being a[n alleged] private company, they can do this . . . but just whose definition of ‘hate speech’ will be used? Is it hate speech to say you want to halt immigration, muslim or otherwise, until you can properly vet those coming in? I’d bet Google will think so. And when/if that happens, how much would you like to bet a new ‘player’ will arrive on the scene and take much of Google’s ‘audience’ ?
