Google manager: corporations are "playing God", and "taking away freedom of speech"

In an undercover video released by investigative reporting group Project Veritas, Google Cloud Technical Program Manager, Ritesh Lakhkar, provided more testimony on anti-conservative bias inside Google and discussed how the company skews its search results in favor of Democrats because of a hatred of President Trump and his association with the GOP.

When a Project Veritas journalist asked Lakhkar why search results for Donald Trump are negative but search results for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are positive, Lakhkar said: "It's skewed by the owners and drivers of the algorithm." ...

Lakhkar also suggested that the manipulation of the search results could be part of a pay-to-play deal.

"If I say, 'Hey Google. Here's another two billion dollars, feed this data set of whenever Joe Biden is searched, you'll get these results," Lakhkar said. ...

Lakhkar also described Google as the worst corporation he's worked for when it comes to "following the leftist agenda."

According to Lakhkar, "politics didn't really matter" when he worked for other corporations but at Google, "your opinions matter more than your work."

Lakhkar explained how deep-rooted this leftist agenda is in the workplace at Google by reflecting on the way Google's employees and its human resources (HR) department reacted to Trump's victory in 2016:

"People were crying in the corridors at Google. There were protests. There were marches. There were like I guess, group therapy sessions for employees. Organized by HR."

Google even told employees not to come to work on some days so that they could "cool off" from the "shocking event" of Trump being elected President, according to Lakhkar.

Lakhkar also slammed Google and the other tech giants for "playing selective God" by flagging and deleting Trump's posts for "misinformation" yet allowing similar content from Democratic leaders to remain.

"I disagree with the corporations playing God and taking away freedom of speech on both sides," he added. ...

They're also the latest of numerous statements from current and former Google employees who have spoken out about anti-conservative bias at the company and the company's manipulation of search results. ...

Research from psychologist and search engine expert Dr. Robert Epstein has revealed that biased Google search results could have given Democrats up to 4.6 million votes in the 2018 US midterm elections.

And during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last year, Epstein predicted that if all the Big Tech companies support the same candidate, 15 million votes could be shifted to that candidate "without people's knowledge, and without leaving a paper trail for authorities to trace."


No one should use any Google service for anything, ever.

I'm sorry, this is bullshit. No tech geeks are showing up at your door forcing you to only communicate through their platform, or covering your mouth when you say things they don't agree with.

If you choose to use services you fundamentally disagree with just because they are popular, you are the one choosing to self-censor.

Don't support evil

The Social Media Giants portray themselves as "Fair and Balanced." Clearly we were duped.

But blaming USERS for the fault of the corporations? I disagree - vehemently. Without oversight or regulation, we trusted the entities to police themselves - but they have not. And they will not, until regulation forces them to be "fair and balanced." They all need to be leashed in or simply shut down.

There's plenty of H1Bs who don't give a shit about the US except for their job, would be happy to do it.

Regulators, mount up.

Seriously, what person goes into business, saying "Don't be evil"?

Isn't that a fundamental assumption just like 'I don't like to kill people' or 'I don't like to explode weapons of mass destruction on population centers' ?

I mean if you need to say that then you probably are evil.

No, really, we're not a Ponzi Scheme, that's just our nickname.
