Google gets the Twitter treatment
Google turns out to have worked hand-in-glove with the Hillary Clinton campaign and lately with the Deep State. This bears investigation.
Two nights ago, yet another journalist, who once lost his Twitter account and got it back with Elon’s purchase of the platform, dropped a thread that does for (or to) Google what the Twitter Files have done for Twitter. These “Google Leaks” tell a tale of Google also being a censor and possibly a State actor, too. But these leaks go further than the Machiavellian machinations of Google’s human staff. They also describe the making of its search algorithm and its training to make the first-ever popular search engine thoroughly unreliable and an instrument of the political left, and the Deep State. But worst of all, Google directly employed many of Hillary Clinton’s key staff. And no one knew anything about that – until now.
Background on Google
CNAV has long suspected that Google sides with the left. Other contributors have noticed it, too. More recently, in 2016, a ranking executive told a Friday afternoon meeting of staff, after the election, that she sympathized with staff who were unhappy with the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. “A kick in the head,” this executive said. Google removed the original Gab Social app (as did Apple), forcing Gab to develop browser shortcuts for signing on. Nor has Google made any real secret of the bias in its search engine.
But the most striking feature (or “bug”) of Google is that it tracks users and aggregates data about user searches. “You are not the customer; you are their product,” goes a common refrain. In fact the Attorney General of Texas sued Google over such “data mining.” This has caused many to abandon Google for other search engines – and refrain from using “Google” as a verb.
Of course, Google is not the only “nefarious Big Tech company.” The Twitter Files now have seen more than fifteen installments. A “Facebook Files” also exists.
Such is the background behind the Google Leaks.
The Google Leaks thread
Herewith the thread, as every other tweet – the odd numbers, because this thread has an odd number of tweets.
As ever, reaction varies from “There you see” to “Ho hum.” But one reply is most likely parody of the “ho hum” reaction:
Speaking of which, an obvious parody account suggested that Hillary Clinton would be out for revenge against Elon Musk.
One other user reminded people that Elon Musk “is the only CEO of a major tech company who has not been manipulating voters.”
Actually, Andrew Torba is another, but perhaps too few people consider Gab Social “major.”
Another user said the problem is larger than most people realize.
Of course we’ve all known “it was more than just Twitter” since The Intercept published their “Thought Cops” piece.
One user suggested an easy test of Google’s bias.
Actually CNAV would remind everyone that Bing is Microsoft. CNAV prefers the Brave search engine. But on this we can agree with that user: Google is not a verb. Repeat: Google is not a verb. Therefore we do not use it as such.
In fact, this story is personal to CNAV. In our early days, we hired a search-engine optimization consultant, who suggested that conservatives could optimize for engined search, and that one search engine was no different from any other. Our senior leadership suspected that Google’s human staff were suppressing our articles. This consultant denied that flatly. Which is part of the reason we since hired another.
These Google Leaks prove us right and that first consultant wrong. CNAV urges all search-engine optimization consultants to disabuse themselves of such naïveté. Conservatives must clearly optimize for a different set of search engines. In fact, let this be another example of the Parallel Economy that Dr. Steve Turley and especially Andrew Torba recommend.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) seems ready, from his championship of a House Government Weaponization Subcommittee, to investigate Google. No doubt the Supreme Court of the United States will have to tell us whether such an investigation is Constitutional. Or perhaps the Attorneys General of Missouri and Louisiana might consider issuing a Third Amended Complaint listing Google as yet another co-defendant. Or else conservatives should employ Andrew Torba’s solution: relegate Google to the Conventional Economy, and decamp from it – totally.
The “private company” defense won’t hold. Justice Clarence Thomas already has said that private companies who do the government’s bidding, become its agents. When the doing would be unconstitutional for government, it becomes unlawful for these agents. This evidence clearly shows that Google is just as guilty as are Facebook and Twitter.
