Evidence that the world’s largest social media and media conglomerates and platforms are completely biased against conservatives and Trump supporters continues to grow by the day, with Google now being outed as the latest abuser.
As reported by The Daily Caller, former Google engineer James Damore and other right-leaning Google workers have filed a class action lawsuit against their employer alleging a climate of censorship and discrimination against them.
The suit claims that Google managers discuss openly the existence of blacklists “meant to encourage and coordinate the sabotage of promotions, performance reviews, and employment opportunities for those with conservative viewpoints.”
In addition, the suit says that Google workers are forced to endure Left-wing propaganda in the form of “Bias Busting” sessions that center in on so-called ‘white male privilege,’ and that workers risk losing their jobs or endangering their careers if they dare question the ‘progressive’ orthodoxy.
“The suit claims that Google illegally discriminates against white male employees as part of the company’s diversity efforts,” The Daily Caller notes.
Also, internal messages accompanying the lawsuit show that employees openly conspired against Damore after he shared a memo critical of Google’s diversity policies while calling for more acceptance of right-leaning views.
“You know, there are just certain ‘alternative views, including different political views’ which I do not want people to feel safe to share here,” a high-ranking Google employee posted in a company message board chain.
Another added: “If Google management cares enough about diversity and inclusion, they should, and I urge them to, send a clear message by not only terminating Mr. Damore, but also severely disciplining or terminating those who have expressed support.”
Shortly afterward, Damore was let go by Google.
But those are just the internal machinations of the media giant. (Related: BUSTED: Undercover media sting reveals Twitter targeting conservatives and independent media for censorship via “shadow bans.”)
Google has new ‘fact-checkers,’ in case you didn’t know, and they are nearly exclusively devoted to censoring right-leaning and conservative media outlets. As The National Sentinel reported, a quick investigation revealed that, when searching for a media outlet that leans to the political Right, such as The Daily Caller, Google gives users details on the sidebar that includes what topics the site typically writes about, as well as a section titled “Reviewed Claims.”
Meanwhile, Vox and other left-wing outlets and blogs like Gizmodo, are not given the same fact-check treatment. When searching their names, a “Topics they write about” section appears, but there is no “Reviewed Claims” section.
For the legacy media, the Left-wing bias at Google’s ‘fact-checking’ operation becomes even more apparent. For instance, in searching “The Washington Post,” not only was the “Reviewed Claims” section absent, but there was a section labeled “Awards” in addition to “Writes About.” That was the same for The New York Times. For CNN, there were no categories at all, like Vox and other Left-leaning outlets searched.
And yet, the Times, the Post and CNN have published no small portion of demonstrably, provably false “fake news” stories involving President Donald J. Trump, his administration or his campaign.
Yet there are no “reviewed claims” for any of those rags. Given what Damone’s lawsuit says, are you surprised?
Heck, ABC News recently suspended one of its reporters, Brian Ross, for filing a fake news story regarding former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, but it, too, has no “reviewed” listings.
“It’s not just Google, either,” The Daily Caller noted. “Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube (which is owned by Google) have all exhibited the same pattern of discrimination and censorship against conservatives.”
It’s time for Americans and other users with views opposed to the insane Left-wing nonsense spewed by so-called progressives to vote with our dollars and our computer mouses.
