  • Is Google Working with Liberal Groups to Snuff Out Conservative Websites?

    Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document "hate crimes and events" in America. They've partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy. In the announcement, Simon Rogers, data editor of Google News Labs, wrote: Now, with ProPublica, we are launching a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate...

  • Hanson: Silicon Valley Billionaires Are the New Robber Barons

    08/17/2017 10:08:50 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 26 replies
    Progressives used to pressure U.S. corporations to cut back on outsourcing and on the tactic of building their products abroad to take advantage of inexpensive foreign workers. During the 2012 election, President Obama attacked Mitt Romney as a potential illiberal “outsourcer in chief” for investing in companies that went overseas in search of cheap labor. Yet most of the computers and smartphones sold by Silicon Valley companies are still being built abroad — to mostly silence from progressive watchdogs. In the case of the cobalt mining that is necessary for the production of lithium-ion batteries in electric cars, thousands of...

    The second part of an exclusive interview with a high ranking former Google engineer who wishes to remain anonymous reveals the Google experience for conservative employees, and a surprising approach to gender in company restrooms. The former Google engineer (alias “Arthur”), worked at Google for several years in a relatively prominent position within the company. Breitbart News questioned Arthur about the treatment of conservatives at Google and the companies internal culture, described as an “ideological echo-chamber” by recently-fired employee James Damore. Read part one of the interview here. When asked if he worked alongside many conservatives Arthur stated that there...
  • Silicon Valley escalates its war on white supremacy despite free speech concerns

    08/16/2017 8:06:12 PM PDT · by janetjanet998 · 24 replies
    Silicon Valley significantly escalated its war on white supremacy this week, choking off the ability of hate groups to raise money online, removing them from Internet search engines, and preventing some sites from registering at all. The new moves go beyond censoring individual stories or posts. Tech companies such as Google, GoDaddy and PayPal are now reversing their hands-off approach about content supported by their services and making it much more difficult for “alt-right” organizations to reach mass audiences. But the actions are also heightening concerns over how tech companies are becoming the arbiters of free speech in America. And...

    PJ Media ^ | August 14, 2017 | David P. Goldman
    We spent a great deal of time talking about inequality of opportunity and outcomes. The tech industry is fanatically progressive in its opinions, as the unfortunate James Damore, formerly of Google, recently learned. The tech industry's drivel about diversity and equality masks a guilty conscience: Digital technology creates inequality of a kind we have never seen before in human history. Instead of talking about inequality of outcomes, suppose we talked about inequality of knowledge? Three hundred years ago, pretty much everyone knew how their technology worked. Europe had lived for a millennium on the innovations of the Carolingian Renaissance: the...
  • Women and Men Are Equal

    Google fired software engineer James Damore for writing a 10-page memo critical of the company's diversity policy. The memo violated the company's code of conduct by "advancing harmful gender stereotypes" by suggesting that biological factors were part of the cause for the male/female gap in the tech industry. I shall make the case that Google's actions were totally justified. Other than differences in certain physical attributes such as genitalia, capacity to give birth and the presence of functional mammary glands, males and females are identical in every other respect. Any remaining male/female differences are a direct result of oppression, discrimination...

    Why aren't there more women criminals?! Men in jail outnumber women by a ratio of 14-to-1. We male stutterers outnumber women, too. This isn't fair! We need more affirmative action! These disparities must be caused by sex discrimination because everyone knows there are no real differences between genders. After all, Google fired engineer James Damore for daring to suggest that there is a biological reason men dominate tech leadership. Google's CEO said: "To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive." Then the media lied about what Damore wrote....
  • 'March on Google' rally in Bakery Square (Pittsburgh) postponed (Alt-Left threats)

    WPXI ^ | August 16, 2017
    The “March on Google” scheduled for Saturday in Bakery Square has been postponed, Channel 11 Morning News has learned. The lead organizer said it was postponed because of credible “alt-left” terrorist threats against the events planned for locations across the country. The march was scheduled in reaction to the firing of a software engineer who wrote a controversial memo about women in technology. Organizers say the events had been falsely portrayed as "alt-right," which led to the threats. A comment on the event website says, "Mainstream media made malicious and false statements that our peaceful march was being organized by...

    The organizer of protests planned at Google offices around the country says he’s trying to decide whether to cancel the rallies due to concerns over possible violence. Organizer Jack Posobiec tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Tuesday that he’s very concerned about threats of violence at the scheduled events Saturday in Pittsburgh and eight other locations where Google has offices. They are in reaction to Google’s firing of a software engineer who questioned company diversity efforts and argued that biological gender differences helped explain why women are underrepresented at the company. …

    (CNN)Major cities across the country are bracing for a wave of white nationalist rallies in the coming days. The largest scheduled rally is the "March on Google," which will take place in nine major US cities Saturday. The aim is to protest the firing of Google employee James Damore over a controversial memo he wrote about the company's diversity policies. Damore has said he doesn't support the "alt-right," and will "likely not" participate. The "March on Google" rallies are scheduled to take place at these Google locations around the country: Atlanta Austin Boston Los Angeles Mountain Park, California New York...

    Modern science is mostly based on discoveries by white men. Therefore, it is racist and sexist and must be replaced with a new science. Enraged by the mild deviations from liberal orthodoxy that got James Damore fired from Google, Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, a physics researcher at the University of Washington, is ready to do her part: Prescod-Weinstein takes issue with the contention—related to her by a “well-known scientist”—that “the Google memo failed to constitute hostile behavior because it cited peer-reviewed articles that suggest women have different brains,” arguing that “peer-reviewed” is not synonymous with “correct.”

    It’s time to treat Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter like public utilities.... Yes, they are private companies, just as many utilities are. And yes, these Internet monopolies do not have the same physical-infrastructure advantages that electric-utility monopolies have. But because of their network effects, their dominance and monopoly power are in many ways even starker. If I don’t like my utility I can put solar panels on my roof and an inverter and battery in my garage, and I can still get power. But if I can’t get access to the 2 billion people on Facebook because Facebook doesn’t like...

    The riots and death in Charlottesville are the physical manifestation of the idea of separateness.  If the thought is the father of the deed, the children of hate, the offspring of "by any means necessary" and the scions of superiority so long in gestation, are finally being born. Donald Trump's plea for calm and his exhortation to remember "we are all Americans first" may find scant resonance among those for whom hyphens come first of all.  The war of the hyphens has broken out, and for its combatants there is only one thought: how do I get back at...
  • Conservatives Must Regulate Google And All of Silicon Valley Into Submission

    Google's fascist witch-burning of an honest engineer for refusing to bow down at the altar of politically correct lies was the final straw, an unequivocal warning to conservatives that there's a new set of rules, and that we need to play by them. First they came for the tech geeks; we’re next. That means Republicans at both the federal and the state level need to rein in the skinny-jeaned fascist social justice warriors who control Silicon Valley – and, to a growing extent, our society – through the kind of crushing regulation of these private business that we conservatives used...

    You’re in second grade, enjoying summer vacation, when a neighbor boy comes out of nowhere and thrusts his fist—hard—into your stomach. For seconds, you gasp for air. He’s no foe. In fact, you would have called him a friend until about three seconds ago. What just happened?Not all of us have been shell-shocked. But we’ve all had the air knocked out of us at some point. For me, it once happened in the way described above. (The little boy thought he was being funny, although his mother laughed at his joke by grounding him.) Well, last week, Google singlehandedly knocked...

Lee Camp has more on how Google is leading the way in making sure the masses stay uninformed about all the ways in which our capitalist society is killing us.
