Google must take down a controversial anti-Muslim video on YouTube that the Obama Regime wrongly blamed for sparking protests across the Muslim world and the terror attack on Americans in Benghazi.
Mercury The Court ruled that keeping it on the website violates the rights of an actress who sued after she was duped into appearing in the film, a divided federal appeals court ruled Wednesday. In a 2-1 decision, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Google’s arguments that being forced to take down the video, “Innocence of Muslims,” would be a prior restraint that would violate the company’s First Amendment protections.
Actress Cindy Lee Garcia proved the need to remove the video from YouTube, the appeals court concluded, in part because of ongoing death threats since first aired by Egyptian television in 2012. A Google spokesman said the company “strongly disagrees with this ruling and will fight it.”
The video teaser clip no longer exists on Youtube, but there’s a copy here, for now.
