The Democrats and their Knightess-in-Shining Armor, Ms. Pelosi, must be getting more desperate than usual. Despite all their weak proclamations that tech giants are neutral, anyone with a quarter of a brain can observe that Google search results seem to be awfully friendly to the Communist News Network, while a bit less courtesy is extended to the likes of Fox News.
Or, in the case of Breitbart, the courtesy of appearing within Google’s hallowed search results is no longer extended at all, as Breitbart has been effectively purged from Google’s search results.
While Google, along with the other tech giants, is notorious for holding openly “progressive” views in spite of their blatantly monopolistic, anti-competitive business practices, the latest move is stunning, even for the tech world of Silicon Valley.
Seems like these tech companies may know something that others don’t. For instance, tech companies may just see that the chatter online does not exactly align with the desperate polls claiming imminent victory for Biden, though the “shoo in” polls featured in the 2016 election have yet to surface.
After all, why else would these companies suddenly choose to purge Breitbart and other actually honest media companies from their search results, if Biden is such a shoo-in for the Democrats?
Democrats have long argued that tech companies are not biased in favor of their party’s platform. Yet in mere days after the 2016 election, a conversation amongst Google executives revealed their blatant bias against Trump, particularly the commentary from the Google VP for Global Affairs, Kent Walker.
“Google is a trusted source of information for people around the world. That’s incredibly valuable at times like this … History teaches us that there are periods of populism, of nationalism that rise up, and that’s all the reason we need to be in the arena …
That’s why we have to work so hard to ensure that it doesn’t turn into a World War or something catastrophic, but instead is a blip, is a hiccup” [Source: Breitbart]
Apparently, what Google really means is “to work so hard to ensure” that Trump does not have another well-deserved victory in 2020. Also, the “trusted information” really means “Google-approved information,” particularly in light of Breitbart’s recent revelations.
Fast-forward to 2020, and Breitbart’s presence in Google’s search results has fallen precipitously, particularly in the most recent weeks.
“True to their word, four years later, Google is deliberately working to interfere with the reelection of Trump in 2020 … Search visibility is a key industry measure of how findable a publisher’s content is in Google search. New data shows that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016.” [Source: Breitbart]
The chart below also illustrates the degree to which Breitbart has been suppressed in Google’s search results, with the most precipitous decline happening in the past several months, or right around the time multiple forces have pooled together to challenge Trump, from battles over quarantines and COVID-19 to the police and mob violence.
A former engineer at Google also validated this claim, arguing that the tech giant employs “very biased people running every level of the company” and that they “really want Trump to lose” in 2020.
Then again, tech giants and Democrats do share a vested interest in keeping the vast majority of the population permanently powerless and perpetually dependent.
After all, Andrew Yang experienced a surprisingly high degree of support from billionaires in Silicon Valley, which naturally leads one to wonder why in the world these companies would support someone openly espousing socialist values … then again, Yang was offering to pay Americans $1,000 per month in basic income, which is starting to sound downright stingy compared to the Democrats’ urging for $2,400 per month.
Unless, of course, he’s espousing the types of “values” that define the vast majority of “socialist” governments on the planet now. Free competition and innovative thinking are generally the enemies of such governments. Critical thinking would naturally lead to wondering about why a particular government seeks to squash all entrepreneurial activities along with other basic freedoms, chiefly freedom of speech and freedom of expression … unless such liberties represented a threat to politicians’ absolute grip on power?
It is safe to say that the Democratic platform doesn’t have much to say in terms of self-improvement, self-direction, and self-learning, but it has a whole lot to say about a lifetime of dependence on welfare handouts and an absence of liberties.
Perhaps the Democrats are so insistent on keeping unemployment at $600 per week as that’s part of their larger plan. After all, if the vast majority of the population becomes so dependent on the government that they’re content to live a substandard existence with cheap entertainments provided by Google, Facebook, Netflix, and all their other counterparts.
Meanwhile, the tiny Democratic elite and their helping hands, otherwise known as CEOs and C-suite executives of supposedly independent private tech enterprises, will enjoy a life of unparalleled luxury while dictating down to the other 99.99% of the population from their platinum towers.
That’s really what the founding fathers had in mind when the United States began. Not.
Fortunately, Google is not the ultimate arbiter of information, as much as it clearly tries to be despite its “progressive” mindset; the Breitbart website itself is alive and well, along with Fox News, The Blaze, The Daily Wire, and a host of other publications that Google and its ilk would love to destroy.
Fox News also remains the highest-watched cable news network, which is precisely why The New York Times executed another desperate move by threatening Tucker Carlson’s wife and children.
Perhaps the best poll of all for 2020 is to see just how much more desperate the Democrats and their star-studded, yet ultimately hollow, tech and celebrity associations become over the next few weeks.
The more desperate they become, the higher Trump’s victory in 2020 is likely to be.
