Shame on Google for Its Blatant Hypocrisy



With each passing day, it appears that the major tech companies are being subjected to justifiable media scrutiny for a panoply of nefarious deeds. Indeed, the once seemingly invincible tech companies such as Twitter, Facebook and Google have now proven that they have clay feet after all.

As was reported in the media, Google recently held a star studded global climate summit in a quaint island off of Italy and it was there that the “politically correct” crowd engaged in some major league hypocrisy. All under the aegis of the “poster child” for environmental justice, better known as corporate behemoth, Google.

So, let’s get this scenario right, lest this issue remain amorphous in anyone’s mind. The celebs who were invited to the upper crust confab flew there on private jets (114, to be exact) and partied aboard $400 million meg yachts. According to published reports, that essentially translates into 864 tons of carbon dioxide being released into the air from the jets, not to mention the carbon emissions of the high end vehicles used to chauffeur the celebs around once they arrived. That would include a bevy of Maseratis, Ferraris & Porsches, among others of that ilk.

Now, the climate change advocates and gurus have been preaching to us for quite some time about something called a carbon footprint and how deleterious is can be to our environmental state. Yet and still, we guess that the folks at Google thought it was well worth it to invest $20 million smackers to convene this high powered and extremely influential crowd; to break bread, and spew forth rhetoric about being champions of the environment.

If that was not bad enough, Google has also been on the receiving end of President Trump’s wrath. It was reported on Tuesday, August 6th that the POTUS had some choice words for Google and its CEO Sundar Pichai. Recently, allegations arose that the tech company had harbored an anti-conservative bias (no surprise to us!).

These allegations were cited by President Trump in a series of tweets on Tuesday morning. The president points to a first hand, insider who allegedly knows the score about messing around with algorithms. He then cited former Google engineer Kevin Cernakee who was the one who alleged that a tendentious political climate has existed at Google.

Fox News reported that the president mentioned his recent meeting with Pichai in the Oval Office, adding that the Google chief “was working very hard to explain how much he liked me, what a great job the Administration is doing” and “that they didn’t help Crooked Hillary over me in the 2016 Election.”

Fox News also reported that Trump said that Pichai told him that Google is “NOT planning to illegally subvert the 2020 election despite all that has been said to the contrary.”

“It all sounded good until I watched Kevin Cernekee, a Google engineer, say terrible things about what they did in 2016,” Trump added. He also referenced Cernekee’s comments that the tech giant wants to make sure that Trump loses the 2020 election.

Cernekee was fired in June 2018 after Google told him that he was terminated for misuse of the company’s equipment, including its software system for remote access. However, Cernekee, who describes himself as a whistleblower, maintains that he was terminated for his outspoken conservative views.

And let’s not forget that such other tech giants as Facebook and Twitter are equally responsible for their own anti-conservative bias as is evidenced in a concerted effort to silence the Jewish Voice by limiting the number of followers and likes that our posts generate. And besides the Jewish Voice, other right wing conservative organizations and individuals have been targeted by the Facebook “truth” squad. Those invisible names and faces who lurk behind the scenes to quell any dissent.

Seems like a 21st century version of the practices of the totalitarian left of yesteryear.
