Undercover video proves Google interfered in Irish abortion referendum

DUBLIN, July 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Google admitted to interference in Ireland’s 2018 abortion referendum but claimed that it was merely to “help voters.”

In revelations made by pro-transparency website Project Veritas, YouTube “blacklisted” a large number of videos on its platform in advance of the referendum while also interfering with search results. YouTube is wholly owned by Google. When voters searched for specific terms on YouTube, the results of their searches were manually altered by Google, thus assuring that the videos selected by Google reach the top of the search results.

Among the searches affected by interference from Google were “irish catholic,” unborn life,” and “abortion is wrong.” The interference in search results came within one week of the referendum, which allowed abortion nationwide. Sources leaked the news to Project Veritas, which was later corroborated by the Breitbart news organization. Some observers have noted that there may be similar manipulation of Google search results with regard to searches related to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and her use of a non-classified internet server for her top-secret communications during her stint in the Obama administration.

Among the blacklisted phrases related to the referendum were:

abortion is barbaric abortion is wrong abortion is murdering Repeal the 8th Murder of innocent babies Right to life abortion and Down syndrome child murder abortion and the Catholic Church

An undetermined number of media and YouTube users were affected by Google’s blacklisting.

However, the Irish Catholic, which is published in Ireland, noted that it was among the media affected.

Google is malevolent. I refuse to use it or gmail anymore. I have switch searches to DuckDuckGo and cannot see that it’s any less productive than Google.

The support for abortion in Ireland was overwhelming. They had to advance the Bill before it was scheduled. They held the referendum on the first possible day.

Crowds rampaged through the streets celebrating.

Google had nothing to do with any of that.

Google management sucks- leftards that they are but the Irish voters in majority sided with ungodly killing of innocent unborns. It’s on them.

And now any pics of Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton have disappeared from the Internet.

Yes, Google is a malevolent organization.

Mighta helped if the pope opened his mouth while the morality of the world gets flished down the toilet. Not a word from him before during or after this vote.

This is the left. They cannot win with any sort of appeal to logic or reason because what they believe is entirely based on feelings like "fairness". So they don't try. Instead they attempt to bully, lie, obscure, and utterly ruin the lives of opposition. They have no moral compass, only a sense that the ends justify the means and the means keep escalating. It's why they laugh off ANTIFA, because they just don't mind violence. It's why they always imprison, torture, and/or murder their opponents as soon as they get the power to get away with it.

This is the left. Their army of nonthinking mindless NPC robots never stop, they will keep doing these sorts of things.

FWIW, I don’t think Google made the Irish government crawl in bed with the Iranians...

When the Irish call the snakes back home,
and show St. Pat the door,
and you get out you Naz'reth Babe,
don't show your face no more,
then the ghost of Cromwell laughs from hell,
"I couldn't kill you but just as well,
you'll do the job quite well yourselves,
and soon be joining me here!"

Snakes Again, piano, flute and voice
