(National Sentinel)Â Censorship:Â Tech and media behemoth Google is continuing to flex its considerable muscle by controlling more of what you are â€˜allowedâ€™ to see. And itâ€™s being based entirely on political ideology.
As reported by Breitbart News, company whistleblowers are now coming out of the woodworkto spill the beans on the tech giantâ€™s growing bias against conservative thought and opinion after Google fired engineer James Damore for daring to challenge the companyâ€™s predominant Left-wing bias in a 10-page memo, where he defended diversity of viewpoints and offered a fact-based defense of gender gaps for certain fields.
As Breitbart noted, more Google employees are speaking out in support of Damoreâ€™s manifesto, but they are having to do so anonymously because â€˜diversity-seekingâ€™ Google really doesnâ€™t want diversity of thought or opinion, just authoritarian compliance with Alt-Left orthodoxy:
Damoreâ€™s ten-page manifesto, which was met by an immediate backlash, described a climate of fear, in which employees who challenge prevailing leftist narratives at the company are faced with immediate threats to their career. Damoreâ€™s own experience appears to confirm this.
In response, the site is publishing exclusive interviews under the series title â€œRebels of Google,â€ featuring employees of the tech giant who have reached out to confirm much of what Damore wrote.
In the first interview of the series, one employee named â€œHalâ€ talked about how Google mid- and upper-level managers conduct â€œwitch huntsâ€ and practice ideological intolerance against conservatives. Hal also discussed dysfunction at the companyâ€™s upper management echelons. (Related: Google redefines â€˜fascismâ€™ to smearÂ conservatives.)
In a follow-up, an ex-Google engineer using the alias â€œEmmettâ€ â€” who worked at the company for several years â€” was asked about allegations that employees within the companyâ€™s Ad Sales department had â€œa great deal of sympathyâ€ with Googleâ€™s Sleeping Giants campaign, which reportedly denies ad revenue to independent and alternative media like Breitbart News and The Rebel Media.
According to one anonymous source, some Google employees in Ad Sales are â€œopenly encouraging Adwords customers to pull their ads from Breitbart and Rebel Media.â€
Emmett confirmed that claim.
â€œA number of friends have privately confirmed this to me,â€ said the whistleblower. â€œI know there are efforts to demote anything non-PC, anti-Communist, and anti-Islamic terror from search results. To what extent that has been successful, I donâ€™t know.â€
That said, Emmett told Breitbart he personally saw Leftists within the company program bias into YouTubeâ€™s algorithms so that anti-PC content would be pushed off the platformâ€™s â€œrelated videosâ€ recommendations.
â€œI have read internal mailing list email from SJWs [social justice warriors] absolutely incensed that thereâ€™d be, say, a Sargon of Akkad video appearing as a video related to one of their favorite SJW vloggers. This is what happens when you have unbiased algorithms, which at the time, was true. I donâ€™t have to tell you that, in that e-mail, the SJW was quite literally asking that the â€˜related videosâ€™ function be perverted so that such a thing would stop happening,â€ Emmett said.
Whatâ€™s more, the former engineer said, ordinary users of Google and related servers wonâ€™t even notice that there is censorship taking place.
â€œThe software could just astroturf your â€˜Related Videosâ€™ section, and you would be none the wiser,â€ he said. â€œSure, if you know what to look for, perhaps youâ€™d notice. But the vast majority of the viewership would never know. Thatâ€™s the whole point of such a disinformation program, right? If you can tell itâ€™s disinformation, you would never ever believe it.â€
He added it was â€œonly a matter of timeâ€ before the company began to bias its search results against Trump supporters, Republicans and anyone who leans to the right, politically.
â€œI donâ€™t have to tell you that there was an internal meltdown at Google when the election was over,â€ he said. â€œThe hysteria has only ever reached a higher level once. That was throughout this weekend, thanks to the #GoogleManifesto [Damoreâ€™s screed] scandal.â€
He noted that itâ€™s even unwise to speak out against Democratic politicians at the company, let alone agree with Damore.
