Google demonetized WND, a Christian website, this week for posting “dangerous and derogatory” and “misrepresentative content” critical of the transgender agenda and coronavirus restrictions.
WND shared that Google no longer allows it to run ads or use alternate advertising services that depend on Google’s Ad Manager service. As a result, WND’s revenue could be cut in half.
In its violation explanation, Google accused WND of posting content “that incites hatred against, promotes discrimination of, or disparages an individual or group on the basis of their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalization.”
What that really means, according to WND’s Managing Editor David Kupelian, is that WND isn’t allowed to “report honestly on the transgender agenda” and still advertise on Google.
If you question whether “men can give birth to babies,” and why “‘biological men’ can compete in and destroy women’s athletics,” and why “a man who identifies as a woman is proclaimed to be ‘the first female 4-star admiral in history,’” you are “‘inciting hatred’ and ‘promoting discrimination,’” Kupelian said.
Google also accused WND of spreading “unreliable and harmful claims” about COVID-19 that contradict “authoritative scientific consensus.”
What that means, according to Kupelian, is that “truthfully” reporting on “the Biden administration’s insane mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic” is not allowed.
“Only the official narrative – the one that is failing at every turn to end the pandemic, while introducing a level of tyranny never before seen in America – is allowed,” he said.
This is not the first time Google has targeted WND, the site claimed. The Big Tech company has also classifed WND as an “extremist group,” shadow-banned WND from its search algorithms, and censored the website from one of its other platforms, YouTube.
