Tulsi Gabbard: If Google Can Censor A Member Of Congress Running For President, They Can Censor Anyone

REP. TULSI GABBARD: In the first [Democratic presidential primary] debate, I was the most Googled candidate of the night, when all of a sudden right at the peak of that time when people were paying attention, our account was suspended…

And then once that peak period passed, our account was magically re-enstated. We still have not gotten any kind of meaningful, or even an attempt to provide a satisfactory explanation for it. Which just points to the need for change. We filed this lawsuit not just because of what happened there, but because of the kind of power Google has as this giant tech monopoly to interfere in our public discourse and really how they can impact our fair elections…

We need to be able to protect the rights and freedoms of the American people, and we have such a big tech monopoly with the power to provide undue influence, through their algorithms, as well as suppressing peoples’ freedom of speech…

If this can be done to me as a member of Congress running for the highest office in the land, it can be done to anyone running for any office in this country and it can be done to any individual in this country.
