Former Google CEO Says Russia/Ukraine War Shows Need for Tech Giants to Support Military-Industrial Complex
Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt said that the Russian/Ukraine conflict shows the need for tech giants to support military-industrial complex propaganda.
Schmidt claimed during his appearance on CNBC’s “Power Lunch” on Monday that tech giants need to march in lockstep to globalist national security priorities from now on.
“The war is going to help solidify the tech companies’ understanding of why national security is important,” Schmidt said.
“If you believed, falsely, that 10 years ago, that war had been eliminated, that conflict was eliminated, we didn’t need militaries and so forth to protect us, then you would say, ‘Let’s not work with the government, let’s not focus on this stuff.’ And I think we’ve unfortunately and horrifically put that argument to bed. We need a strong national security in our country, and the tech industry needs to support it,” he added.
Schmidt called for Google and other tech giants to inundate Russia with propaganda in order to undermine their national sovereignty.
“I think we are collectively better keeping them integrated with information,” Schmidt said, claiming that the control of information by monolithic tech corporations is helping Russian citizens “see what they’re missing out [on].”
Big League Politics has reported on Facebook’s policy to allow terror threats against Russians as part of the sanctioned Two Minutes Hate against the nationalistic country:
“Does big tech truly care about the safety of their users? Facebook and Instagram are facing criticism after an explosive report by Reuters showed the two platforms are set to “temporarily” allow calls for violence against Russian soldiers and Russian President Vladimir Putin during the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. This news comes after President Vladimir Putin banned Facebook from his nation just days ago in retaliation to repeated platform censorship that targeted numerous Russian media outlets.
Meta spokesperson Andy Stone shared the company’s statement in an online post: “As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine we have temporarily made allowances for forms of political expression that would normally violate our rules like violent speech such as ‘death to the Russian invaders.’ We still won’t allow credible calls for violence against Russian civilians.”
“We are issuing a spirit-of-the-policy allowance to allow T1 violent speech that would otherwise be removed under the Hate Speech policy when: (a) targeting Russian soldiers, EXCEPT prisoners of war, or (b) targeting Russians where it’s clear that the context is the Russian invasion of Ukraine (e.g., content mentions the invasion, self-defense, etc.),” wrote Meta in a recent email sent to moderators.“
Big Tech entities are going out of their way to fulfill every Orwellian prophecy under the sun. The Russia/Ukraine conflict has shown just how evil the technocratic one-world regime will become, and the globalists are just getting started.
