Media Outraged By Big Tech Data Scam – But Only Because One Finally Benefitted a Republican

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

But they’d all happily vote for Bill Clinton again tomorrow. – A new poll indicates that 53% of Democrats now think it’s wrong to vote for a candidate who has done immoral things in his private life.  *sigh*

This will happen as soon as all those Flying J’s truck stops start selling decaf halfcaf skinny mocha soy lattes with two honeys and a twist of lemon. – NBCnews.com has a piece this morning titled “Why Millenials Should Start Considering Truck Driving.”  Ok, it’s actually good advice, but, well, it’s not exactly the vision Obama filled these young peoples’ heads with for eight long years, is it?  But it turns out our country is now overwhelmed with unemployable social workers, dog groomers, computer coders and Russian feminist literature studies majors, and we’re a little short on people who want to keep our economy moving by driving long-haul trucks for a living.  Go figure.  No one could have possibly seen that coming.

The fake news media finally catches onto the Big Tech data scam – Of course, this only happened when the “improper” use of 50 million Facebook users’ information ended up benefiting a Republican, i.e., the Trump Campaign in 2016.  No one in the fake media gave a rat’s behind when Google set up a satellite office in the Obama White House and Facebook and Twitter eagerly shared all the data there was to share with the Obama campaign during the 2012 election cycle.  But now that some firm that Trump didn’t even use during the general election had access to Facebook’s data that might have benefited the media’s enemy, well, that’s crossing the fake news media’s fake red line.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Here’s our reality when dealing with Facebook, Twitter, Google and the other Big Tech websites:  All they really are is data accumulators who are in business to sell their data.  If you provide data to, say, Facebook, Facebook is ultimately going to sell that data to make a profit.  Despite their periodic protests to the contrary, there have been so many examples of Facebook and Twitter doing this that you have to be a hopeless simpleton to actually believe anything you do on any of these platforms will somehow remain private and confidential.

The fake media is treating this latest in a long line of examples as some sort of major event, but the truth is that, had the firm in question here, Cambridge Analytica, been working on behalf of the Clinton Campaign, this would not be a story at all – you’d have never heard of these people.  Facebook and Twitter have been shadow-banning conservative news outlets and users for years with no objection from anyone at CNN or the NYTimes.  Google has almost since its’ first day of existence been biasing its search results in favor of Democrats, and no one at Yahoo News or the Washington Post has uttered a peep about it.

The hilarious part of all of this fake media attention is that it is giving momentum to the efforts in Washington to find some way to heavily regulate these big tech platforms in the future.  While any effort by the federal government to regulate these big tech companies would no doubt end up being a slow-rolling train wreck – because that’s the core competency of federal government regulators – it would be a certain form of justice to see the Facebooks and Googles of the world end up being hoisted up on their own petards.

Hey, at least we got some great Twitter memes out of it (see below) – The Washington Free Beacon reports that U.S. taxpayers are having to foot the bill to the tune of $22 grand for the Pantsuit Princess’s book tour trip to India.  That total amount is the combined cost of Secret Service protection for the Fainting Felon, along with administrative costs incurred by the State Department.  But hey,  why wouldn’t the millions of deplorables who the Coughing Crook insulted during the trip be glad to pay for a trip in which she broke her wrist climbing into a million dollar bathtub and humiliated herself by not being able to even come down a flight of stairs without major assistance?  Good times…good times…

 

Just another day in big tech data scamming America.

That is all.

Employee Claims Google Is A Religious Cult; In Other News, Water Is Wet

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • A current employee of Google told a reporter for Breitbart that the tech giant is “run like a religious cult.”  Well, welcome to the world of progressivism, in which everything is treated like a religious cult, complete with texts filled with dogmatic nonsense (such as gender is not determined by biological factors), forced, non-natural behaviors that, if violated result in group shunning and ridicule (“climate deniers”), and forced denial of truth (hey, maybe that deal with Iran wasn’t so great after all).
  • The latest allegation comes fresh on the heels of the controversy over Google, Inc’s having fired an employee who wrote a 10-page memo lambasting this employer for its failure to address its epidemic diversity issues.  True to religious cult form, the employee wasn’t fired for what he actually wrote in the memo, but for what fake news media outlets falsely alleged he had said in the memo.  This classic hive behavior is a hallmark of American progressive behavior, and Google, Inc. is just a small part of that hive.
  • For those unfamiliar with the term “hive behavior”, it’s really pretty simple:  whenever a bee becomes injured and infirm, its fellow bees make no effort at rehabilitation – that would, after all, require sentient thought or at least an instinct for caring – but rather systematically and rapidly force the debilitated bee from the hive.  It also describes the manner in which a hive filled with thousands of bees all react exactly the same way in unison to outside stimuli.
  • We see these behaviors in progressives all the time.  If you’re not willing to simply parrot everything Al Gore claims about the environment, even though literally nothing he claimed in his first film has turned out to be true, you are shunned as a “climate denier”.  If you criticize Maxine Waters for the obvious fact that she is a mean-spirited, raging dimwit, you are shunned as a “racist”.  If you voted for Donald Trump because Hillary Clinton is an obvious career criminal, you are shunned as a “sexist”.  If you try to engage any progressive in a fact-based discussion on any issue, all you will invariably get in return is a rote recitation of whatever Rachel Maddow had to say about it on her TV show the night before.  Oh, and name-calling, lots and lots of name-calling.
  • In other words, if you aren’t willing to suspend simple acknowledgement of the reality all around us in your daily life, and if you base your views on key issues on that reality, logic and facts, you are, to the progressive hive, literally a heretic who is to be shunned and demonized.
  • So, yes, Google is run like a religious cult because the management at Google is uniformly made up of progressives.  The same is no doubt true at other tech giants like Facebook and Twitter.  If you accept a job at one of these firms, and you find yourself unwilling to simply recite the dogma and act in unison with the hive, you will soon be identified as “damaged”, as the writer of the 10-page memo was, and very quickly removed.  The hive made no effort to defend its employee, or to rehabilitate him – doing those things, after all, would require adherence to the truth and actual caring about his well-being.  Regardless of what his memo did or did not say, the employee violated Google’s religious dogma, the first tenet of which is obviously that “Google is unfailingly good”.  Once he did that, he was damaged goods.  Plus, he’s apparently a white male, an unprotected class, which made his swift removal laudable among the company’s army of mindless, hive-dwelling Social Justice Warriors.
  • Progressivism is a religious cult.  Once you accept that basic reality, it all begins to make sense.

Just another day in religious cult-ridden America.

That is all.
