As Fox News first reported Thursday night, Google staffers discussed skewing search results to promote leftist immigration causes after President Donald J. Trump announced a temporary halt on immigration from seven primarily Muslim nations early this year.
“According to the email chain, Google staffers suggested actively countering ‘islamophobic, algorithmically biased results from search terms ‘Islam,’ ‘Muslim,’ ‘Iran,’ etc.’ and countering ‘prejudiced, algorithmically biased search results” regarding the words ‘Mexico,’ ‘Hispanic’ and ‘Latino,'” the report said.
Of course, what is “islamophobic” or “prejudiced” is entirely subjective and open to interpretation. If interpreted by leftists in Silicon Valley, everyone to the political right of Stalin is a bigot.
“Overall idea: Leverage search to highlight important organizations to donate to, current news, etc. to keep people abreast of how they can help as well as the resources available for immigrations [sic] or people traveling,” said an email from a marketing staffer.
“I know this would require a full on sprint to make happen, but I think this is the sort of super timely and imperative information that we need as we know that this country and Google, would not exist without immigration,” a product manager said in response.
The email thread brings to light an important point. Google views itself as the arbiter of what information is important for internet users to see.
But Google does not have the authority to speak on behalf of the citizens of this country. We did not elect Google, we elect representatives.
The Silicon Valley monstrosity was co-founded by an immigrant from the Soviet Union and is actively working on a censored version of its platform for the communist Chinese government. Should we really trust them with this type of power?
Google responded to the Fox report with a predictably generic message.
“These emails were just a brainstorm of ideas, none of which were ever implemented. Google has never manipulated its search results or modified any of its products to promote a particular political ideology — not in the current campaign season, not during the 2016 election, and not in the aftermath of President Trump’s executive order on immigration. Our processes and policies would not have allowed for any manipulation of search results to promote political ideologies,” a spokesperson reportedly said.
Dave Rubin Berated on Social Media for Claiming ‘Free Markets’ Will Stop Big Tech Tyranny
Nobody is buying what Rubin’s selling anymore.
Left-libertarian pundit Dave Rubin is getting hammered on social media by conservatives offended by his notion that the “free market” will somehow end Big Tech tyranny without government intervention.
Rubin disagreed with President Trump’s call for action to reign in Big Tech as they commit Orwellian censorship and attempt to meddle in electoral politics.
Conservatives must fight the impulse to regulate big tech. Competition, free markets and human ingenuity are the answer. Not taking one big problem and combining it with another big problem.

Rubin’s tweet caused many people to point out how his ideology is a failure and does nothing to actually preserve freedom of speech in any tangible sense.
“Man Dave…seems like years of gatekeeping and sucking up to Susan at YouTube has made the entire internet hate your guts,” wrote Twitter user @terrorsperg.
“How long until big tech controls every aspect of our life? We going to just let them destroy us in the name of “free markets?” There is a serious discussion to be had here about whether they are publisher or platform,” twitter user @MadManCris49 wrote.
“Conservatives are going to be “noble losers” until the end of time unless they actually start fighting fire with fire,” wrote Twitter user @tdschwinn.
“There is no Free Market is Social Media anymore. It’s a dictatorship that uses Repressive Tolerance to justify telling only one narrative,” wrote user @jamft in a tweet. “Twitter is no longer a platform, it has become a publisher and a gatekeeper.”
“This is not regulating them. This is taking away monetary and legal privilege they receive by claiming to be merely a “public platform.” They, if indeed they ever were, have ceased to be such and should lose that privilege,” wrote Twitter user @ChiefScribe.
“Competition doesn’t exist. Competitors can’t even get a mobile app because Apple and Google won’t allow it. Its a monopoly,” Twitter user @steph93065 wrote in another response.
Rubin is acting like his so-called competitor to Twitter, Locals.com, is free market competition that will reign in the social media giants without government interference.
However, banished journalist and Congressional candidate Laura Loomer pointed out that Rubin’s platform subscribes to all of the same rules as the tech giants and does not really promote freedom of speech.
“I find it really bizarre how Dave Rubin is going around telling people that his new social media site is anti censorship when it’s been designed to keep deplatformed people off and also utilizes the same content moderation tools as Twitter,” she wrote in a Telegram post.
“How do you have a social media site created to supposedly combat censorship and then not invite anyone who has actually been deplatformed onto the site? How can you claim to not have “behind the scenes censorship” when you let people “control who can and can’t post”?” Loomer asked.
Loomer urges patriots who oppose Big Tech censorship to join Parler, a social media entity that refuses to bow to Big Tech’s arbitrary rules and allows unpersoned individuals to speak freely on their platform.
“It is very dishonest for this new site to be advertised as a solution to censorship,” Loomer wrote of Rubin’s social media scam site. “I believe that’s what you call false advertising.”
Rubin’s half-baked weak libertarianism is not selling like it did several years ago. The homosexual former leftist “Young Turks” collaborator is showing signs that he may be controlled opposition for the globalist establishment.
