An advertising account manager at Google directs major advertisers to the page of the Sleeping Giants. Sleeping Giants is a far-left organization spreading smears about conservative media websites. It works in an effort to frighten advertisers away from conservatives.
Google is far more dangerous than The New York Times or CNN. It is the world’s most dangerous company. It’s the greatest surveillance network in the history of mankind. Dr. Epstein calls Google “the most powerful mind control engine ever created.”
Google Docs monitors what you type. It could ban you based on not approving of your content. In a 2018 document leak Google was caught calling itself “The Good Censor.” The paper describes how it is moving away from the American model of free speech.
It’s moving toward the Muslim tradition favoring dignity and civility over freedom. Truth is unimportant, it matters not at all as a defense for things deemed offensive.
Big Tech targets and bans conservatives
Big Tech bans regular conservatives. Basically, they take a tiny set of alt-right trolls then say the alt-lite has a superficial similarity to the troll. Alt –lite is a new wave of anti-immigration, antiwar, market skeptical right-wingers.
The new right, libertarians, and even nonconformist center leftists like posting the same memes. They like following the same accounts, and therefore are all abusive. This exacerbates the left’s propensity to block and report users.
Financial blacklisting is rampant. The fundraising platforms GoFundMe, Patreon, and Kickstarter are banning conservatives. Electronic payment processors like PayPal and Stripe are too. The left-wing group Color of Change is demanding credit card companies and Apple Pay ousts conservatives. Think about where this leads. Big Tech cuts off the money supply.
Then there’s the “defamation engine” of Wikipedia and Google. Wikipedia appears at or near the top of Google search results nearly always. Wikipedia bans any citation to Breitbart as a reliable source. If you try to edit a page to correct any bias against conservatives, you’ll be banned. Go ahead try it.
Removing or limiting Section 230 protections from Big Tech may mitigate the immediate trend. They act like publishers. Big Tech frequently argues in court they are publishers. If that is their argument: Why are they exempt from lawsuits? Other publishers aren’t. It is not intervening in the free market to allow them to be accountable.
Section 230 doesn’t get it done
Even if you don’t want to remove Section 230 protections from most of Big Tech. It is difficult to grok why not, but accepting the position, for the sake of argument. It’s unfair that you can’t sue the most powerful publisher in the world. Do you know who that is? It’s Wikipedia. Why is it can’t you sue them for defamation? You can sue The Washington Post? Riddle me that Batman.
Technology will eventually trace down things you wrote anonymously years ago. They are setting their AI loose to compare writing samples. It is good advice to delete even old anonymous posts. Twitter has lower numbers and poor success at driving visitors to businesses. But Twitter is more powerful than you think. Their business model may suck comparatively. Their tech and reach make it very dangerous.
Do you want a future where elections are decided by a Google search algorithm? Should the future be one where Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook can render your business unprofitable with the push of a button? Is a world where Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey decides whether or not to allow you a voice in the public square a good thing?
Don’t be fooled by Big Tech’s claims. They are not merely censoring really offensive speech. The evidence is overwhelming. They are trying to influence the most mainstream of elections, the presidential election. It’s just a matter of how many million votes they can swing. We are going to find out if the battle is over on November 3, 2020. Big Tech cuts off the money supply.
