Google in China

Even though Michelle Malkin's politics are reptilian, I have to admit this is hilarious. Still, it's astonishing, if not repulsive, that the same person who made a lot of money writing a book that defended the internment of American citizens for their Japanese ancestry would be offended when Google, motivated by the desire to make a lot of money, gives in to pressure from the Chinese government to censor search results for Google users in China.

Why is it more reprehensible for Google to help China control what the Chinese people can read than it was for the U.S. government to evict Japanese-Americans from their homes and forcibly remove them to prison camps for no other reason than their ethnicity?
