The Decline of Google Integrity.
Google has committed the cardinal sin of search engines. It is returning skewed results based on the Social Justice Warrior (SJW) biases of its workforce. A search engine whose results can no longer be trusted to be impartial, has no value. I believe Google has reached that tipping point today.
I used to love Google. I bought into their promise to: “Don’t be evil”. Unfortunately, the old saying that “Absolute power corrupts absolutely” appears to be true with them. As they achieved monopoly status in the search field, they decided that buckets of money was no longer enough. Now, they would use their search-engine-might to spread their SJW ideologies to the world, and to suppress ideas they don’t agree with. This is totally unacceptable.
Google’s new YouTube Policy will also hide videos that they disagree with. According to the new policy, “The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.”
So the videos that Google doesn’t agree with will be invisible, unless you have a direct link to them, and the video creator will not be eligible for financial compensation. Wonderful.
Even worse, if you search for these videos, you may be redirected to videos that support Google’s political views. As they state it: “When people search for sensitive keywords on YouTube, they will be redirected towards a playlist of curated YouTube videos that directly confront and debunk violent extremist messages.” Based on changes I’ve seen with conservative content on YouTube, Google considers any conservative opinions to fall under that category.
Google Thought Police Are Watching You
Google has become infested with SJW’s. I think SJW’s are particularly insidious because they pretend to be diverse and inclusive, when in reality, they oppose diversity of thought, and would exclude anyone who doesn’t agree with their ideas.
They are unwilling to discuss or debate any opposing ideas. Their first defense mechanism seems to be to call out anyone who disagrees with them as hateful, a racist, a bigot, or some other nasty appellation.
Recently, Google has been in the midst of a scandal over the leak of an internal document created by Google employee James Damore, which they called an “Anti-Diversity” memo. It is anything but an anti-diversity memo. To quote from the memo:
“I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes. When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem. Psychological safety is built on mutual respect and acceptance, but unfortunately our culture of shaming and misrepresentation is disrespectful and unaccepting of anyone outside its echo chamber. “
It calls out for diversity of thought, and for open discussion of ideas. Google’s reaction to this memo is telling. James Damore, was fired. He dared express a different opinion. He proposed ideas which upset the Google group-think. He didn’t threaten anyone with violence. He just asked for an open discussion of ideas.
But the internal SJW response from Google was marked with violent threats and refusal to even discuss the ideas that James presented, which were supported by scientific research that he cited in his memo.
One Google Employee, “Defending Cville”, tweeted: “I would just walk to his desk and beat the sh*t out of him”. Why is she still an employee, while James Damore was fired? What a wonderful place Google must be to work, where people want to physically assault you for disagreeing with them.
In fact, at least one engineer was punched in retaliation for something he posted. This interview with a previous Google employee, confirms not only the violence, but the blacklisting and discrimination that is rampant by the SJW’s at Google: “I know at least one engineer did get punched in retaliation for something he posted — I am sure he will corroborate this to you directly.”
Another Google employee, Colm Buckley, tweeted “there are certain ‘alternative views, including political views’, which I do not want people to feel safe to share here…”. He also stated that “Yes, this is ‘silencing’. I intend to silence these views.”
Yet another Google employee, Anthony Baxter, tweeted: “I will absolutely go out of my way to make sure I never work with anyone involved with or who endorsed that garbage”.
There are many other examples, you can read for yourself at Breitbart.
Internally, SJW managers at Google are bragging about blacklisting those who disagree with their political views:
Adam Fletcher of Google will not tolerate differing views, stating:
- I will never, ever hire/transfer you onto my team. Ever. I don’t care if you are perfect fit, or technically excellent or whatever.
- I will actively not work with you, even to the point where your team or product is impacted by this decision. I’ll communicate why to your manager if it comes up.
- You’re being blacklisted by people at companies outside of Google. You might not have been aware of this, but people know, people talk. There are always social consequences.
If true, the “blacklisted by people at other companies” comment is a chilling indictment of the culture at Silicon Valley companies today.
There are numerous examples of the hostile work culture that you can read here.
Apparently, some SJW snowflakes at Google were so upset reading the memo, they stayed home from work the next day.
Are these people even adults? I’m surprised Google wasn’t handing out crayons and coloring books, like many institutions did after the 2016 election. Sheesh.
Google Has Lost Our Trust
I encourage you to read the memo. Whether you agree or not with the author’s conclusions, he just seems to be explaining his position, for which he had done considerable research, and just asked to discuss the issue.
This is what is so disturbing about the SJW’s today. They refuse to even have a discussion with you. In fact, Google looks very similar to a cult, where people are afraid to disagree with the group think, for fear of being physically or verbally abused, ostracized, and harassed.
Google is hiring people based on diversity rather than ability. They are filtering search results which don’t match their own ideas. They are monetarily punishing YouTube authors which disagree with their viewpoints. Google is hostile to their own employees who may have differing beliefs. People are afraid to speak out. Google is trying to excise any different opinions from the Internet.
This is not a company that can be trusted to be the sole gatekeeper to the Internet. I’ve stopped using Google Search, and am now using Bing and DuckDuckGo as alternatives. The Internet must not be filtered to only display certain ideas. Even if you agree with Google’s positions today, someday they may diverge from your current world view, and you too may fall victim to Google’s abuse of power.
Protests are being planned outside of Google offices across the country on August 19, 2017. If you feel that it is imperative that our Internet Search must remain impartial, please consider joining the protest. You can find more information at MarchOnGoogle.
