My Takeaways from the Breitbart Google Video

Sat­ur­day morn­ing I spent an hour watch­ing the Google video that Bre­it­bart put out.

If you haven’t watched it yet it’s here

There are sev­eral things that struck me about this video:

The least impor­tant obser­va­tion is that the appear­ance of the crowd com­pletely con­firms the stereo­type that peo­ple have to tech types which by an odd coin­ci­dence is also the least sur­pris­ing thing to me as a per­son who spent years in tech and worked with tech peo­ple worldwide.

There doesn’t seem to be any talk at all about the actual work of google which in the­ory is to pro­vide an effec­tive search engine that busi­nesses and indi­vid­u­als will pay for which is sup­pos­edly their busi­ness model. How­ever there seems to be a great deal of talk about how to influ­ence the votes of Amer­i­can so they act the way the peo­ple in the room want them to act.

The level of virtue sig­nal­ing within that com­mu­nity is com­pletely astound­ing. As I watch the fel­low who at the end basi­cally reads a man­i­festo about his white priv­i­lege and the folks who applaud him looks and sounds like some­thing that John Cleese and Gra­ham Chap­man might have writ­ten for a Monty Python sketch.

In tak­ing ques­tions from employ­ees about mov­ing to Canada and the prospect of a third world war seri­ously Google man­age­ment shows that exper­tise, even great genius level exper­tise in a par­tic­u­lar field does not con­vey or imply exper­tise in other fields or even sense or san­ity in every­day life.

For a group of peo­ple who are sup­pos­edly engi­neers and thus rooted in facts and data, they don’t seem to be big on objec­tive real­ity when look­ing at the world.

The knowl­edge and rev­e­la­tion that Google has been financ­ing and even pro­vid­ing incen­tives to employ­ees to give dona­tions to groups that are dia­met­ri­cally opposed to me, my beliefs and my faith should be a great incen­tive to folks like me to avoid its use and not reward com­pa­nies that pro­vide it with revenue.

The only thing more incred­i­ble than the left of virtue sig­nal­ing is the com­plete lack of self-​awareness around the group, par­tic­u­larly when some­one asks about how they can affect infor­ma­tion bub­bles while not real­iz­ing that they are all liv­ing in one.

These are all telling things and they add up to two things that Ace of Spade’s morn­ing rant sums up very well:

If the video were dif­fer­ent, if it showed Google employ­ees whoop­ing it up and throw­ing MAGA hats into the air because they were so happy Trump won, you can bet that there would be many chin-​stroking think pieces writ­ten about how the video calls into ques­tion Google’s objec­tiv­ity. But see­ing them openly weep­ing at Hillary’s loss appar­ently doesn’t raise that ques­tion. What’s really creepy is how full of them­selves the Google execs are, like when Google VP Kent Walker answers a ques­tion by say­ing that Google must ensure that the rise of pop­ulism doesn’t turn into ‘a world war or some­thing cat­a­strophic’. I had no idea that the guys who run Google believe it’s their job to keep his­tory on the cor­rect path. I thought that their job was to pro­vide a search engine that they claim every­body can use. Except, of course, for the Chi­nese, whose author­i­ties cooked up a scheme with Google to let them see only what they allow.

Not only are these peo­ple actively actively try­ing to influ­ence you and the rest of the pub­lic toward either the views they desire you to have in order to cre­ate their own ver­sion of utopia but they con­sider this their pri­mary mis­sion as a company.

As the post at Aces notes, this mis­sion to cre­ate heaven on earth doesn’t apply to total­i­tar­ian nations will­ing to pay the com­pany vast amounts of cash to make sure that their own repressed peo­ple do not have access to infor­ma­tion that might enable them to ease said oppression.

Put sim­ply Google’s “Do no evil” motto is as Orwellian as the mes­sages on the barn in Ani­mal House and is wholly subjective.

In clos­ing I should point out there is one ironic twist which comes from an exchange at the very end of the video fueled by the very last ques­tion asked by a man in a beanie with a pro­peller on his head:

Is there any­thing pos­i­tive you see from this elec­tion result? (the audi­ence laughs)

After one of the folks on stage notes Trump’s desire to improve infra­struc­ture another gives an inter­est­ing answer which concludes.

…national gov­ern­ment been very grid­locked you have a sit­u­a­tion you;re aware of per­haps the repub­li­cans have a lot of con­trol over what hap­pens and respon­si­bil­ity for that…

He’s very right about that so when you look at the boom­ing stock mar­ket, a surg­ing econ­omy, man­u­fac­tur­ing return­ing, a strong for­eign pol­icy, ISIS in retreat and the best job mar­ket in his­tory for blacks and His­pan­ics, every per­son in that room, par­tic­u­larly those who hold google stock and have seen it’s value rise over 46% since inau­gu­ra­tion day ($806.91 to $1172.53 Fri­day from $806.91) can thank the Repub­li­cans in con­gress, Don­ald Trump in the White House and every per­son who voted to put them there (no mat­ter what Obama says)

On behalf of all of them: You’re welcome.

Hmm that sounds good I wounder if some­one would make it into a meme for me it I send it out of Gab? Pag­ing Hogewash

That’s pretty good but all it needs is an ending

Less reg­u­la­tion?”

Oh, shut up!”

Saturday morning I spent an hour watching the Google video that Breitbart put out.

If you haven’t watched it yet it’s here

There are several things that struck me about this video:

The least important observation is that the appearance of the crowd completely confirms the stereotype that people have to tech types which by an odd coincidence is also the least surprising thing to me as a person who spent years in tech and worked with tech people worldwide.

There doesn’t seem to be any talk at all about the actual work of google which in theory is to provide an effective search engine that businesses and individuals will pay for which is supposedly their business model. However there seems to be a great deal of talk about how to influence the votes of American so they act the way the people in the room want them to act.

The level of virtue signaling within that community is completely astounding. As I watch the fellow who at the end basically reads a manifesto about his white privilege and the folks who applaud him looks and sounds like something that John Cleese and Graham Chapman might have written for a Monty Python sketch.

In taking questions from employees about moving to Canada and the prospect of a third world war seriously Google management shows that expertise, even great genius level expertise in a particular field does not convey or imply expertise in other fields or even sense or sanity in everyday life.

For a group of people who are supposedly engineers and thus rooted in facts and data, they don’t seem to be big on objective reality when looking at the world.

The knowledge and revelation that Google has been financing and even providing incentives to employees to give donations to groups that are diametrically opposed to me, my beliefs and my faith should be a great incentive to folks like me to avoid its use and not reward companies that provide it with revenue.

The only thing more incredible than the left of virtue signaling is the complete lack of self-awareness around the group, particularly when someone asks about how they can affect information bubbles while not realizing that they are all living in one.

These are all telling things and they add up to two things that Ace of Spade’s morning rant sums up very well:

If the video were different, if it showed Google employees whooping it up and throwing MAGA hats into the air because they were so happy Trump won, you can bet that there would be many chin-stroking think pieces written about how the video calls into question Google’s objectivity. But seeing them openly weeping at Hillary’s loss apparently doesn’t raise that question. What’s really creepy is how full of themselves the Google execs are, like when Google VP Kent Walker answers a question by saying that Google must ensure that the rise of populism doesn’t turn into ‘a world war or something catastrophic’. I had no idea that the guys who run Google believe it’s their job to keep history on the correct path. I thought that their job was to provide a search engine that they claim everybody can use. Except, of course, for the Chinese, whose authorities cooked up a scheme with Google to let them see only what they allow. 

Not only are these people actively actively trying to influence you and the rest of the public toward either the views they desire you to have in order to create their own version of utopia but they consider this their primary mission as a company.

As the post at Aces notes, this mission to create heaven on earth doesn’t apply to totalitarian nations willing to pay the company vast amounts of cash to make sure that their own repressed people do not have access to information that might enable them to ease said oppression.

Put simply Google’s “Do no evil” motto is as Orwellian as the messages on the barn in Animal House and is wholly subjective.

In closing I should point out there is one ironic twist which comes from an exchange at the very end of the video fueled by the very last question asked by a man in a beanie with a propeller on his head:

Is there anything positive you see from this election result? (the audience laughs)

After one of the folks on stage  notes Trump’s desire to improve infrastructure another gives an interesting answer which concludes.

…national government been very gridlocked you have a situation you;re  aware of  perhaps the republicans have a lot of control over what happens and responsibility for that…

He’s very right about that so when you look at the booming stock market,  a surging economy, manufacturing returning, a strong foreign policy, ISIS in retreat and the best job market in history for blacks and Hispanics, every person in that room, particularly those who hold google stock and have seen it’s value rise over 46% since inauguration day ($806.91 to  $1172.53 Friday from $806.91) can thank the Republicans in congress,  Donald Trump in the White House  and every person who voted to put them there (no matter what Obama says)

On behalf of all of them:  You’re welcome.

Hmm that sounds good I wounder if someone would make it into a meme for me it I send it out of Gab? Paging Hogewash

That’s pretty good but all it needs is an ending

“Less regulation?”
