In prior posts, we have highlighted the fact that Google is biased against conservatives. It has also now been shown that most of the people who work for Google are far left and would smear President Trump as an authoritarian threat to American freedom.
And yet, all of this is happening as Google is being paid to help the government of China, a truly authoritarian body, target and suppress its own people.
GOOGLE CHINA PROTOTYPE LINKS SEARCHES TO PHONE NUMBERS
GOOGLE BUILT A prototype of a censored search engine for China that links users’ searches to their personal phone numbers, thus making it easier for the Chinese government to monitor people’s queries, The Intercept can reveal.
The search engine, codenamed Dragonfly, was designed for Android devices, and would remove content deemed sensitive by China’s ruling Communist Party regime, such as information about political dissidents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest.
Previously undisclosed details about the plan, obtained by The Intercept on Friday, show that Google compiled a censorship blacklist that included terms such as “human rights,” “student protest,” and “Nobel Prize” in Mandarin.
Leading human rights groups have criticized Dragonfly, saying that it could result in the company “directly contributing to, or [becoming] complicit in, human rights violations.” A central concern expressed by the groups is that, beyond the censorship, user data stored by Google on the Chinese mainland could be accessible to Chinese authorities, who routinely target political activists and journalists.
This makes the folks at Google typical leftists. Projecting onto others, what they themselves are actually doing.
Keep this in mind the next time anyone from Google complains about Trump.
