Kate Scanlon, from the Blaze, in her column “Trump Filter’ Blocks References to the GOP Candidate While You Browse the Internet” reports:
There’s a new Google Chrome extension in town called the Trump Filter — and its creator said it blocks all references to the Republican presidential candidate while you browse the Internet.
“Eliminate Donald Trump from all your web browsing without leaving the Internet. Donald simply disappears from your view of every web page,” developer Rob Spectre wrote on his Trump Filter website. “Simply install the Chrome extension through the Chrome Web Store and you’ll never have to see Donald Trump on the Internet again.”
According to the Trump Filter website, the extension may be set to three separate levels “based on how much you want to avoid the Donald.”
According to The Hill, the levels are “mild,” “aggressive” and “vindictive.”
Google had prided itself in having an inclusive and open platform where people could go where they wanted when they wanted. Many question why just an Trump Filter. Why not offer a filter for every candidate running for president? Google’s once open platform is now closing.
Apple also offers a block Trump app in its iTunes store.
Some have questioned if Google and Apple are violating the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by having a filter for only one candidate. The internet is a place where people assemble, apparently those who wish not to assemble for Donald Trump can do so using this Google Chrome extension and Apple app.
Donald Trump rules the internet, perhaps Google and Apple are taking sides in this race?
Too bad for Goggle and Apple, great publicity for Trump. Our guess is his poll numbers will once again rise with this news.
