Less than a week before the California primary, Google listed “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party.
In the “knowledge panel” that provides easy access to information next to search results, Google was showing “Nazism” as an “ideology” of the party as of Thursday morning. The word “Nazism” was hyperlinked to a secondary page that shows “Nazism” alongside other “ideologies” of California Republicans like “Conservatism,” “Market liberalism,” “Fiscal conservatism,” and “Green conservatism.”
The tech giants(e.g., Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) keep telling us “Oh NO! We’re not biased against those on the Right! We’re honest brokers. Yeah, tell it to Stephen Kruiser, the latest outspoken conservative that Twitter is strangling. Of course Google is denying they did anything wrong directly. What wasn’t mentioned in the ‘explanation’ is that they chose their sources that serve as the knowledgebase for their algorithms and have deliberately chosen left wing groups as their “umpires” (ditto Facebook and Twitter).
It happens and it happens a lot. I don’t bother with Twitter much any more because I’ve caught them shadowbanning our tweets (especially during the Prez debates). So when I hear the mea culpas, it’s like I’m hearing both Iran and the Norks saying “no we have no on-going nuclear programs – really! Believe us!).
This is why we have our own server rather than the “free” servers that someone else controls.
