After inventing platforms that customers want to use, Leftist Silicon Valley control freaks are destroying the value of their products.
After Google fired James Damore for WrongThink, Silicon Valley control freaks have sped up their agenda to destroy the businesses they used to attract customers. Whistleblowers have come out and revealed prejudicial behavior on the part of Google employees. Furthermore, YouTube is making aggressive moves against Trump supporters and other conservative or populist voices.
This is an opportunity for other tech entrepreneurs who don’t want to invent a way to manipulate people.
Lifezette reports, “Silicon Valley Tightens Its Grip on Free Speech.”
In the aftermath of Damore’s firing, a number of anonymous current and former Google employees have come forward to reveal the full extent of the company’s efforts to silence right-wing voices. One anonymous employee identified as “Hal” told Breitbart News last week that some employees in Google’s ad sales department are “openly encouraging Adwords customers to pull their ads from Breitbart and Rebel Media.”
Another anonymous employee under the alias “Emmet” confirmed this with Breitbart News, and also revealed the existence of “efforts to demote anything non-PC, anti-Communist, and anti-Islamic terror from search results.”
“Emmett says he personally witnessed efforts from leftists within Google to bias YouTube’s algorithms to push anti-PC content off the platform’s ‘related videos’ recommendations,” Breitbart reported. “The software could just ‘astroturf’ your Related Videos section [an effort to hurt overall ratings], and you would be none the wiser,” said Emmet.
“Sure, if you know what to look for, perhaps you’d notice,” he continued. “But the vast majority of the viewership would never ever know. That’s the whole point of such a disinformation program, right? If you can tell it’s disinformation, you would never, ever believe it.”
People familiar with the process have told reporters recently that YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, is also laboring to cleanse its platform of alternative voices that challenge the mainstream liberal narrative. The social media video-sharing site has in the past few months systematically demonetized videos of right-wing commenters and journalists, such as Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson and former Rebel Media reporter Lauren Southern.
The latest victims of YouTube’s political leftwing attacks on customers, who they lured onto their platform by means of false promises of fairness, are the Trump advocates known as Diamond and Silk.
