Google will continue its trend of doing the bidding of foreign governments and meddling in their elections, according to a new report.
“Google has taken down YouTube ads by Alexei Navalny, a critic of President Vladimir Putin, ahead of elections for regional governors in Russia,” the report said. “The videos showed Mr Navalny calling for Russians to take part in protests on 9 September against raising the retirement age.”
The latest scandal regarding the tech giant working with oppressive regimes comes on the heels of a report that the company is engaged with the Chinese government to build a censored search engine which will protect the Communist regime. To Google, cash is king. Humanity is only secondary.
“We consider all justified appeals from state bodies,” said Google in a statement. “We also require advertisers to act in accordance with the local law and our advertising policies.”
Apparently, a local law prohibits advertisements within 24 hours of an “official poll.”
But Google has inexplicably removed politically themed advertisements in different polls that did not break any laws.
“Earlier this year, it banned ads targeting voters in the Republic of Ireland’s referendum on abortion,” according to the report. “At the time, the technology giant said the move was part of an effort to safeguard the integrity of elections globally.”
It appears that Google is deciding what information to platform based on its own self-interest and political leaning.
Monday, Tucker Carlson of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” revealed a bombshell email from a Google executive, who openly admitted that the most powerful tech company in the world shilled for Hillary R. Clinton in her failed 2016 presidential bid.
“An email obtained exclusively by this show reveals that a senior Google employee deployed the company’s resources to increase voter turnout in ways she believed would help the Clinton campaign win in the last election,” Carlson said.
The November 9, 2016 email was sent by Eliana Murillo, the former Head of Multicultural Marketing at Google. The email was subsequently forwarded by two Google executives, according to Carlson.
“In her email, Murillo touts Google’s multifaceted efforts to boost Hispanic turnout in the election,” Carlson said. “She knows that Latinos voted in record-breaking numbers, especially in states like Florida, Nevada, and Arizona.”
Murillo described Arizona as a “key state for us,” meaning Democrats.
“[Google] supported partners like Voto Latino to pay for rides to the polls in key states,” Carlson said. “Murillo then says that Google helped Voto Latino create ad campaigns to promote those rides. At the end of her email, Murillo makes it clear that Google was working to get Hillary Clinton elected.
Google is quickly becoming a corporate overlord with the ability to make a mockery of political institutions globally. It’s power must be reigned in before it usurps total control.
MeWe Goes Big Tech Authoritarian, Opts for Political Censorship
This is no different than a Big Tech platform.
Supposed Big Tech alternative MeWe is opting for the path of political censorship and repression, caving to demands of media leftists to censor right-leaning political content.
MeWe’s administrators confirmed they would close so-called ‘Stop the Steal’ groups and purge their content from its platform earlier this month.
MeWe styles itself as somewhat of a Facebook alternative, advertising user privacy and independence from a data surveillance business model. MeWe’s administrators have taken to signalling against real free speech social media platforms such as Parler and Gab, a thumb in the face of their largely anti-establishment user base, many of whom joined the service to begin with in pursuit of a Facebook alternative that doesn’t censor.
MeWe is NOT an "anything goes" site like Parler or Gab. MeWe's TOS is strict & clear (https://t.co/oJP1JvrxiZ)- haters, lawbreakers, violence inciters etc. are not welcome. We have an outstanding Trust & Safety team that works hard every day to investigate & remove TOS-violators
— MeWe (@mewe) January 10, 2021
An overwhelming majority of Americans who attended ‘Stop the Steal’ protests are peaceful and non-violent, with only a handful getting out of control during the January 6th raucous US Capitol riot. MeWe’s decision to implement political censorship en masse makes it no different than the worst Big Tech authoritarians, except for the deceptive marketing of a free speech social media platform.
In any event, a social media platform that bans arbitrarily defined “haters” is almost assured to have draconian anti-free speech policies. MeWe has opted for the path of a minuscule Big Tech clone in a betrayal of its own user base. Gab offers a wide range of social services without the politically correct censorship, and MeWe’s users should embrace it as the real home of free speech online.
