It’s scary to think that the people who control so much of the Internet have a naked bias. But that’s just what we’re learning about the search engine overlords at Google. According to the lawsuit leveled at them by former employee James Damore, the company holds to ideals that can hardly be called mainstream.
Some of the documents released in his suit divulged how much Google embraces alternative lifestyles. So much so, that parents in traditional home lives were practically discriminated against. Meanwhile, employees who called themselves “yellow-scaled wingless dragonkin” were allowed to hold seminars.
Now, I don’t really care if someone thinks they’re a dragon. Really, as long as they don’t try to breathe fire on my house, it’s all good. But I’m not sure I like knowing that a company that controls my email accounts, Internet searches, website analytics, and smartphone is prioritizing such an odd view, while denigrating widely-held views on gender and parenting. That’s a big red flag.
Things have only gotten worse since that revelation. A Hispanic engineer is one of three additional employees who claim Google discriminated against them because they held to conservative views. We also know that Google believes things like individual achievement, objectivity, and meritocracy are all forms of white supremacy. That should bother everyone, since now Google is going to war with basic concepts.
But still, you might not be worried. Every company has its culture, right? You don’t have to like the people or views, as long as their product and services suit you. I mean, does it matter what Google thinks about “plural beings,” so long as I can easily watch YouTube?
Maybe, maybe not. But we are learning that the incredible power Google wields over the Internet was just too much for some of its people. As it turns out, their political bias was just a hair away from violating our government.
Alon Altman, a senior software engineer at Google, pressured the company to sabotage President Trump’s Android phone, according to new evidence released via James Damore’s class-action lawsuit against the company.
Calling on the tech giant to use the “full economic force [of] Google for good”, Altman also suggested deleting the gmail accounts of Trump, his administration, and his aides for “abuse.” (Breitbart)
The “full economic force of Google for good”? Good, of course, defined as attacking the duly elected President of the United States. It’s amazing how Altman branded her goals as “good,” while ignoring the very obvious ethical violations such actions would have caused.
Altman also wanted Google to blacklist “alt-right” sites from their ad network. Naturally, she considered everything right of Mother Jones alt right.
This should sound alarm bells to everyone that relies on Google. Altman still works at Google. What is she up to right now? I’m sure she is fuming every day at the fact that Trump is in the White House. What new measures is the company taking to both undermine the President and ensure more Democrats are ushered into D.C.?
It’s one thing to hold to a political view. Most people do. But when you want to manipulate a supposedly neutral service to cater to your view, something’s very wrong. Altman, like so many others on the left, believes that if they can silence dissenting voices, they will win. It doesn’t even enter their brains that there are many conservatives in America.
You can try to censor their content online, but you won’t stop them from making their voices heard. But many liberals seek to marginalize conservatives. Us hicks in flyover country don’t really deserve to vote or think for ourselves. If Altman can use the power of Google to cut us out of the Internet, then perhaps Democrats will win by wide margins every election!
That’s a pathetic dream. But if people like Altman get their way, conservatives will have a hard time speaking their mind.
Altman has been employed at Google for seven years, and according to inside sources, is one of the most radical leftists at the company. She was named as one of the key architects of political discrimination at Google by a whistleblower we interviewed last August. As we have reported, she has previously called on the company to discipline or terminate any employee who agreed with James Damore’s viewpoint diversity manifesto, which argued that there was an atmosphere of political intolerance at Google. (Breitbart)
It's troubling to think that someone so unhinged has so much power at Google. I don’t expect everyone to share my views. Obviously, there will be plenty of liberals working at Google. But to harass, discriminate against, and fire people because you disagree with them? That’s pretty extreme. I think there’s a common word for that kind of draconian behavior. What was it again?
Oh yeah, fascist.
Think about the steps she wanted to take to get back at Donald Trump. She wanted to delete Trump’s, his administration’s, and their aides’ email accounts. Over what? “Abuse.” What abuse? How are Trump’s people abusing Gmail? Obviously, those working in the White House have accounts hosted on government servers. Altman was advocating that their personal email accounts would be deleted, including all messages going back years.
It wouldn’t impact their ability to serve. It would simply be a massive inconvenience and problem. What would it accomplish? Nothing, except send a message that Google’s partisanship is at toxic levels.
Not to mention they’d have to violate their own privacy rules to find anything remotely considered “abuse.”
The same thing goes for Donald Trump’s Android phone. If the President uses an Android phone for official work, bricking it (i.e. shutting it down permanently) would interfere with his work. It would also be considered a crime. How is that furthering “good”?
Altman’s suggestions smack more of petty pranks by disgruntled people. They will not help the country, nor will they stop whatever evil she believes Trump is currently planning. But the fact that Google employs people with such radical bias proves they are not to be trusted.
