I am referring, of course, to Google, which has refused to remove the Absher App, which the House of Saud wrote to, among other things, keep women from traveling freely.
I know that these ratf%$#s think that they are somehow making the world better place, but they aren’t.
They are just another bunch of pimps: (This applies to Apple, as well, they are mentioned in the story.)
Google has declined to remove from its app store a Saudi government app which lets men track women and control where they travel, on the grounds that it meets all their terms and conditions.
Google reviewed the app — called Absher — and concluded that it does not violate any agreements, and can therefore remain on the Google Play store.
The decision was communicated by Google to the office of Rep. Jackie Speier, a California Democrat who, with other members of Congress, wrote last week to demand they remove the service.
INSIDER last month reported how Absher — an all-purpose app which Saudis use to interact with the state — offers features which allow Saudi men to grant and rescind travel permission for women, and to set up SMS alerts for when women use their passports.
Rep. Speier and 13 colleagues in Congress wrote to Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Apple CEO Tim Cook on February 21, demanding that the app be removed.
Apple has also not responded to a request for comment from INSIDER.
Rep. Speier told INSIDER: “The responses received so far from Apple and Google are deeply unsatisfactory.”
“As of today, the Absher app remains available in both the Apple App store and the Google Play Store even though they can easily remove it.”
“Not only do they have the capability to take action, they have done so previously with the removal of the Living Hope Ministries app, which encouraged users to ‘convert’ LGBTQ individuals, based on its ability to cause harm.”
“Facilitating the detention of women seeking asylum and fleeing abuse and control unequivocally causes harm. I will be following up on this issue with my colleagues,” Rep. Speier said.
Seriously, Apple and Google are one step above slave traders.
