It may be hump day, but it’s a great day for American Patriots! As disgusting as big tech’s recent censorship of Hunter Biden’s rather colorful activities has been, a definite silver lining has emerged: The Department of Justice has finally forward with a formal antitrust investigation of Google.
In the spirit of late nineteenth century America, which saw the rise of mega-conglomerates in the United States that eventually brought about the anti-monopoly Sherman Act, the Department of Justice, along with eleven other states, filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google for its rather brazen behavior in the marketplace.
“The U.S. Justice Department and 11 states filed an antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet Inc’s Google on Tuesday for allegedly breaking the law in using its market power to fend off rivals.
The lawsuit marks the biggest antitrust case in a generation, comparable to the lawsuit against Microsoft Corp filed in 1998 and the 1974 case against AT&T which led to the breakup of the Bell System.
Google, whose search engine is so ubiquitous that its name has become a verb, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The company had revenue of $162 billion in 2019, more than the nation of Hungary.”
So, Google’s revenue surpassed Hungary’s GDP. And these are the same snowflakes lecturing hardworking Americans about their “white privilege?”
Frankly, the titans of industry in the late nineteenth century frankly come across as more genuine and less self-serving than today’s embittered snowflakes masquerading as tech CEOs. After all, various institutions from these titans pepper the planet and contribute to all of humanity, both in the United States and beyond.
For instance, the Scottish Parliament has recalled the legacy of Andrew Carnegie, noting the wide range of contributions he left behind.
“The wealth of this one man built the Peace Palace at The Hague, established more than 2,600 public libraries and greatly widened access to education in Scotland and the United States.
Carnegie’s philanthropy had an impact across the world, especially in America and Britain. Objects on display are being loaned by many organisations including the Library of Congress, Columbia University Archives, Carnegie Hall Archives, the British Library and National Records of Scotland.”

In addition, outside of their philanthropy, these same titans also provided products and services that were widely used and appreciated by all Americans, not services that are only appreciated by extremely leftist “Americans.”
For instance, while Rockefeller remains one of the most famed mega-monopolists from the era, his contributions undoubtedly shaped American society for the better, including the massive improvements in physical transportation and information dissemination. Specifically, his contributions to the railroad system ultimately strengthened, rather than divided, America.
“The railroads were among the first companies to issue bonds and stocks in the United States. They also sped up the flow of information and, by extension, the mechanics of investing. As railroads were laid, telegraph companies worked out a deal where their lines would follow the tracks.
The transcontinental line and its accompanying high-speed (compared to mail horses) communication was one more link between the financial hubs and the industrial and agricultural centers spread across the nation.”
When examining the legacies of Rockefeller, Carnegie, and other formidable American figures, today’s modern business leaders come across as even more sniveling and small-minded.
In sharp contrast to Americans who promoted highly diversified education and critical thinking, Google, Facebook, and Twitter would rather people quit thinking entirely. Let the predetermined algorithms do all the “thinking” (i.e., distracting) for Americans. Not to mention only be exposed to “news” through their platforms, rather than any outside platforms.
From the extreme censorship of Breitbart, Alex Jones, and now apparently The New York Post, these tech companies clearly believed themselves to be omnipotent in the modern marketplace.
Fortunately, no matter how powerful they think they are, pride routinely comes before the fall, and these tech companies have had a massive abundance of pride since time immemorial. Or, in their case, really just a few years.
While big tech feigned objectivity, this attempt was poorly constructed at best, especially given the idiotic commentaries from enormously left-leaning tech CEOs. Now that they’ve effectively dropped all pretense of objectivity, the DOJ has dropped all pretense of believing these companies are anything but what they really are: deliberate monopolies hellbent on dividing, rather than strengthening, the United States.
In fact, when contemplating just how invasive and insidious these companies really are, particularly against a legitimately elected President, it would be lovely if some sedition charges were thrown in along with the long-overdue antitrust investigation.
As the next few months unfold, it will be fascinating to see what ultimately happens to Google and its ilk, though much of the outcome will depend on who ultimately wins the election.
