Google Demonetizing All Content That 'Victim Blames' Ukraine, Presents Counter-Narrative

Google sent out an email to millions of publishers and YouTubers on Wednesday warning them that they'll be demonetized if their take on the conflict in Ukraine doesn't align with the State Department.

The letter reads:
Important Notice: Update regarding Ukraine

Dear Publisher,

Due to the war in Ukraine, we will pause monetization of content that exploits, dismisses, or condones the war.

Please note, we have already been enforcing on claims related to the war in Ukraine when they violated existing policies (for instance, the Dangerous or Derogatory content policy prohibits monetizing content that incites violence or denies tragic events). This update is meant to clarify, and in some cases expand, our publisher guidance as it relates to this conflict.

This pause includes, but is not limited to, claims that imply victims are responsible for their own tragedy or similar instances of victim blaming, such as claims that Ukraine is committing genocide or deliberately attacking its own citizens.
Information Liberation was banned from AdSense last year just for sharing video of police executing unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt at the Capitol on a page with no ads.

In that case, victim blaming was a requirement to remain monetized.

All these rules translate to is push the regime's narrative or be demonitized.

The notion Google is a "private company" at this point is just laughable. Google is a direct extension of the DC regime.
