There’s also a resistance at Google

From Powerline: an extraordinary scandal. Someone has leaked this and it is a lot more damning than anything ever said about PDT.

IT’S OFFICIAL: GOOGLE IS A DEMOCRATIC PARTY FRONT

Someone leaked to Breitbart an hour-long video of an “all hands” Google meeting that was held just after the 2016 election. The video features Google’s co-founder, Sergei Brin, its CEO, Sundar Pichai, and numerous other high-ranking “Googlers” speaking in turn about the election’s tragic outcome. It is stunning.

All of the speakers express grief over Donald Trump’s election. All of the speakers assume that every Google employee is a Democrat and is stunned and horrified that Hillary Clinton–the worst and most corrupt presidential candidate in modern history–lost. There is much discussion about what Google can do to reverse the benighted world-wide tide exemplified by Brexit and Trump’s election. The insane doctrine of “white privilege” rears its head.

You really have to see it to believe it. Having suffered through the hour-long cri de cœur–OK, to be fair, there is a huge element of schadenfreude, too, and you will relish much of it–you probably will have several reactions: 1) These people may have certain valuable technical skills, but they aren’t very bright and are unusually lacking in self-awareness. 2) It is remarkable that they can achieve such an extraordinary monoculture in an organization with thousands of employees. It must require vigorous enforcement of right-think. 3) It is easy to see how these uniformly left-wing robots/people seamlessly transitioned into Resisting the duly elected Trump administration.

Here is the video, then a final comment:

The question is what to do about the left-wing tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Start conservative companies and platforms to compete with them? Break them up under the Sherman Act? Turn them into regulated public utilities, with public employee-level salaries and no stock options? Those are all possibilities. After watching the video, you no doubt will be ready to take action.

    The third speaker, a female, is in tears. At the end of her drivel she asks everyone to hug the person next to them. She also uses terms like ‘we lost’.

  2. How come YouTube (Google) hasn’t pulled the video?

  3. Tim Neilson

    A couple of days ago Tucker Carlson broke a story about how Google tried to manipulate its search function before the election to give prominence to things they thought would maximise the Latino vote, and were then disappointed that 29% of Latinos voted for Trump.
    So this confirms what was already clearly proved.

    When google says do not evil, you have to read that as a pure SJW war cry.

    The Tech Zombie Industrial Complex is so lacking in self-awareness that every last one of them doesn’t think it’s utterly bizarre they’re all ideological robots — a monoculture — that support and/or vote for the Democratic Party. Oh and to a man/woman they loathe freedom. What a suffocating shithole Silicon Valley is.

  6. do not evil

    Google has removed that term.

  7. What a suffocating shithole Silicon Valley is.

    Yup.

    google’s de facto campaigning without the required political clarification would be violation of campaign financing laws.

  9. Cynic of Ayr

    When I was young, there was a meme (?) of the “Absent Minded Professor.” In fact, kids went to fancy dress balls costumed as one. The idea was that really, really smart people were not that aware of themselves, or the real world. It was like a balance. Being super smart on one hand, but balanced by being super stupid on the other hand.
    The video is plain and simple truth to this statement. Smart people, but equally stupid.
    The strange thing that I see is that, the profession of these people involves a lot of logic. Computer programs are inherently logical. If this occurs, that will occur as a result. Yet, they cannot apply the same logic to the real world.
    Trump lowers unemployment. Welfare payments go down. Logical, no? Not to them. A completely illogical result is envisaged.
    Trump lowers unemployment. Greenhouse gases increase.
    Strange people.

    It’s encouraging that in spite of the monolithic groupthink, someone inside Google was able to leak this.

    Their ABC is alert to the danger of fake news and corrupted digital media leading people to vote for the Wrong Side of important issues:

    Fact checking: The new workplace skill

    We know that Russian actors tried to influence American public sentiment through the use of sham Facebook accounts, reaching about 126 million people around the time of the US presidential election in 2016.

    The debate over whether the UK should leave the European Union was also infected by false information.

    Luckily the ABC is here to prevent this poison infecting young minds:

    With this in mind, RMIT ABC Fact Check, an internationally accredited fact checking unit embedded within RMIT University’s School for Communications and Media, is in the process of building a short online “micro-credential” to help students navigate the minefield that is fact versus fiction.

    In time we will all learn how much better it is to properly love Big Brother.

    It is very clear many of this generation of Silicon Valley executives are deeply inadequate when it comes to fulfilling their leadership roles in society. They make Gavin Belson from the show Silicon Valley look like a mild mannered nerd.
    Where they are capable is in technical issues. With rare exception they display a modern day totalitarian predisposition toward techno-utopianism and techno-determinism. Both of which they seek to exercise beyond reasonable means.
    Victor Davis Hanson makes some very good points at this link – https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/09/social-justice-indoctrination-saturation-social-media-sports-movies/
    These Silicon Valley executives outsource their morality to their political party of choice in order to absolve themselves of the societal consequences of their actions. Much of the argument however comes back to privacy. They cannot be responsible for their customers willingly placing a low value on privacy.
    The most notable example of a major backfire was Eric Schmidt’s efforts at funding a group called First Draft to coin the phrase “fake News”. Sharyl Atkisson breaks it all down brilliantly in this video -https://youtu.be/UQcCIzjz9_s
    If you want to know who provides the intellectual leadership at Google, look to Dr Eric Schmidt. A very dangerous and committed socialist who often denies the intent behind his actions. Also a person who occasionally gets it spectacularly wrong by having his political manouevres ju-jitsued against him by those who are smarter. Also look to the fact Google’s founders, Brin and Page came out of perhaps the most left wing university in the United States, UC Berkeley.
    Much as they try, as was the case with the Fake News propaganda narrative, Google’s totalitarians will come unstuck as circumstance swing to favour their political opponents. They will either roll with it or find themselves irrelevant overnight.

    Bias busting!

    Yes, those high suicide rates, lower life expectancy, unfair clemency granted for female murderers and sex offenders (particularly against male victims), unfair family court rulings, numbers of men who die in combat opposed to men, mmmyes, the privilege is strong!

    So these left wing champagne millionaire socialists are upset that the Republications won the election? If they want their socialist paradise so much, nationalism the company and seize all its assets. Oh wait … not THAT kind of social paradise …

    The video is plain and simple truth to this statement. Smart people, but equally stupid.

    I worked for someone like that. “A highly intelligent fuck-wit” as I put it. Being a fuck-wit is the least of his character defects as it happens.

    I think there’s some corollary to the Dunning-Kruger effect, where people are so brilliant in their specialty that: a) they assume they’re smarter than everyone else; b) their brilliance extends to every field of human endeavor, and even: c) assume that they could master anyone else’s skills and knowledge in a few hours because obviously that person is so much less intelligent than they are.

  24. Dave of Reedy Creek, Qld

    What glorious irony considering the op ed in NYT and the African American female who slandered the White Hose and Pres.Trump. Then there’s the Woodward book of seemingly fake stories. Hope there are many more of these releases showing the loony left in action. Hard to believe anything about the left but ugly old jealously considering the benefits the US are enjoying from Trump’s Presidency.

    Google is embracing evil

    https://nypost.com/2018/08/01/google-is-embracing-evil/

    Google won’t comment on the scoop by The Intercept’s Ryan Gallagher, which pretty well confirms the story: The company is rushing back into China with a search app that enforces the regime’s censorship rules. So much for that “Don’t be evil” slogan.

    Gallagher cites internal memos, surely leaked by an insider, about the “Dragonfly” project to write an app for Android phones that could launch within months. The app will automatically suppress references to “anticommunist,” “dissidents,” the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, “Animal Farm,” “1984” and on and on and on.

    Any “sensitive queries” on the regime’s blacklist will yield a “no results shown.”…..

  29. NB

    In his blog, computer programmer and open source legend, Eric Raymond, uses a quote from George Carlin: “Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners.”
    Raymond continues:

    Technically Carlin was actually not quite correct. Fascism has never become quite sophisticated enough at semantic manipulation to pose as manners. He should more properly have said “Political correctness is communism pretending to be manners”; George Orwell, of course, warned us of the dangers of Newspeak through his portrait of a future communism in 1984.

    Google/Newspeak
    Civilization flickers, darkness descends.

    Given that Google is ad driven, what would be the best way to hash tag those bastards. I reckon Goolag or Google 1984 on every passing web site that we visit.

    I am still trying to get my head around the morphing Marxist dichotomy of Labour/Left and Capital/Right.

    International Monopoly Capital and the establishment of the progressive cultural State is on the Left, but it sees the lower and middle class workers and consumers as its enemy, to be tolerated until they can be replaced. On the Right are White Straight Males and most of their wives and daughters, at least until they go to school and university. Being white is a disqualifier that will eventually drive the metropolitan Leftist males, Gays and feminists back into the Right, as soon as they find out what their Muslim allies have planned for them. Probably lots of conservative type people of colour will also be driven from the Left, but they can at least go under the radar of the Left if they want a quiet life.

    The weird thing is that the colour of your skin seems to be the determining factor of which side you are on. You don’t get to choose, not if you are white anyway.

    Google employee question: [0:39:55]
    > What will we do if the new president elect asks for encryption keys and/or backdoors? Trump has made it clear that he thinks the government should have access to virtually all information, what will our answer be when that call comes in?

    Chief Googler answer: “Are we going to build back doors and give out the keys? The answer has been No. The answer continues to be No.”

    I guess Google isn’t going to get along well with the Australian Government then.

    SENIOR GOOGLE SCIENTIST RESIGNS OVER “FORFEITURE OF OUR VALUES” IN CHINA

    ….He told The Intercept in an interview that he believes he is one of about five of the company’s employees to resign over Dragonfly. He felt it was his “ethical responsibility to resign in protest of the forfeiture of our public human rights commitments,” he said.

    What it is as a Googler to be Googly yada yada.

    It’s a bloody cult. With ambitions to make the world over to its beliefs.
