In a word: socialism.
See, it turns out that Google, Yahoo!, and the other big search engines are part of a secret plot to drive traffic to socialist sites rather than decent, God-fearing, pro-American-values sites.
I learned about this courtesy of "Reasonjester" at "Tea Party Nation."
IT IS MY SUSPICION THAT GOOGLE AND YAHOO ARE STEPPING UP GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDA BY MOVING UP SOCIALIST-FRIENDLY (AKA STATE-FRIENDLY) LINKS IN THE SEARCH HITS.
Many people have suspected this before, but I am really starting to see some strange behavior out of Google, in particular. And it is not just a reflection of more aggressive AP and MSM bias, there are numerous leftist blogs that are being moved up.
The explanation is simple: The U.S. government has signaled to the search engines that if you don't play hardball, the government will shut you down. This type of intimidation can be seen with the Chinese instructing Google to censor hits while threatening not to renew its license.
I'm pretty sure Reasonjester meant "if you don't play ball," rather than "if you don't play hardball," but it's possible that incipient socialism has caused me to see mixed metaphors where there are none.
Reasonjester's commenters agree:
Ive also noticed when you try to inter a web sight that is against liberal beliefs the sight freezes up and stalls on you like a connection problem causing you to have to wait forever ,
But a sight that has liberal postings and debates you get in and have no problems .
One of two things .
Either thay are lagging you on purpose are liberal sights are not as active as thay build them up to be making less traffic on the forum's.
So when freerepublic.com crashes, that's because the tubes have been deliberately broken by communists to thwart conservative speech.
I have long suspected it.
Well, as you know, we're total traffic whores here. So we'll be moving to an all-socialist, all-the-time format. I've stopped bathing. Patrick is regrowing the beard he had in grad school. Ezra is — well, Ezra is Ezra.
Fortunately the definition of "socialist" seems somewhat broader than it was when I learned it in school, so we should still be able to bring you a broad range of topics.
Thanks, Tea Party Nation!
