Google cuddles over Trump, huddles with China's censors

Google headquartersNo one is surprised to hear of liberal leanings among the social media giants, but day by day their left-wing beliefs are being exposed. The latest is Google.

Just hours after the 2016 presidential election, Google executives gathered their corporate employees for a corporate hug to lament the surprise winner and to ask – out loud – how their fellow Americans could have done such a disgraceful, heartless, selfish thing.

A video of the hour-long meeting found its way to Breitbart News, which published an exclusive story on September 12 that pulled eye-opening quotes from the corporate leaders gathered on stage. Google co-founder Sergey Brin, for example, states at one point that he is "deeply" offended by Trump's win which conflicts with Google's "values."

Kent Walker, the corporation's senior vice president for global affairs, suggested that Trump won because of fear, xenophobia, and hatred.

Trump addresses Congress (No. 2)The company's chief financial officer, appearing nearly in tears, promised the gathered employees that Google will "use the great strength and resources and reach we have to continue to advance really important values."

In other words, say critics who have watched the video, Google is determined to correct the mistake of millions of Americans and use its influence to do so.  

Dan Gainor of Media Research Center says the tentacles of Google reach far.

"It should scare everybody," he warns, "and when I say everybody, I don't just mean in this country. Google is a global concern. It's 90-some percent of the global search. It's the number one search engine in the world."

Meanwhile, some Google employees have been walking out the door over the corporation's ongoing cooperation with communist China, where a controversial search engine will hide content deemed inappropriate by the country's authoritarian, communist leaders.

BuzzFeed News first broke the story of at least seven employees quitting over protest, including a senior scientist who learned of Project Dragonfly in August.  

Yet another social media giant, Twitter, found itself accused of censorship this week after the Center for Immigration Studies said Twitter refused to run ads with the words "illegal alien" in them.

The term violates the company's hate speech policy.

That's a strange word to censor, says Gainor, since the term is nothing more than an accurate description of aliens who are here illegally.
