Google never said it would support free speech.

Even if it did, it has no obligations to do so.

This is your free enterprise world Doc, enjoy!
Google then has no expectation that it will not be sued for liable for what others post on its sites. But they do because they are supposed to be protect as a "pass through" service. BY LAW. If they aren't a pass through service then why are they protected from liable suits?
How quickly you abandon free speech!

Google specifically is not only censoring content, it is also controlling (should say extorting) businesses. It suppresses search results according to a ransom policy so that business sites are shown not according to relevance but according to Tha amount of ransom that they pay on a monthly basis to Google. (Unrelated to paid ads)

In hindsight it seems obvious: only the Republican Party could bring socialism to America!
