Big Tech is helping society creep toward authoritarianism.
It’s a difficult irony to contend with because of the convenience of technology.
But one Senate hopeful just exposed the troubling arrangement Google has with this foreign country.
Author JD Vance, whose book Hillbilly Elegy was adapted into a film that was panned by left-wing critics for not being hostile enough to Donald Trump voters in middle America, has been one of the public figures strongly opposing big tech.
Vance is running for Senate in Ohio, and he’s made reining in Silicon Valley oligarchs central to his campaign.
During an appearance on Fox News, Vance laid into Google’s cozy relationship with the Chinese Communist Party.
“Google, right now, is actively conspiring with and working with the Chinese government. They’ve actually been very open about this. At the same time, the 29-year-old woke idiots who work at Google refuse to allow Google to enter into contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense. This company is not a national company anymore. It’s not actually invested in the nation that allowed it to become so wealthy and powerful. Why do we keep giving it special privileges? I’m just not okay with it anymore. I want my kids to grow up in a good country, not a terrible one. If I want my kids to grow up in a good country we actually have to push back against the institutions that are taking from it.”
Google had been working on Project Dragonfly, a search engine tailored to the censorship requirements of the CCP.
The project was only scrapped after it came to light.
Meanwhile, Google, and its subsidiary YouTube, are actively engaging in censorship against Republicans, conservatives, and anyone else who is counter-narrative on big issues.
For example, Google booted Twitter competitor Parler from its app store after the social media site was unjustly blamed for the Capitol Hill Riot.
FBI reports showed that Facebook and Twitter were the chief platforms for organization.
But because Parler was radically growing in popularity, they were taken out at the behest of prominent Democrats like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Big Tech has essentially become a fascist cudgel wielded by the Democrats.
They actively censor anyone who gets in the way of the establishment.
Google has arguably become the most powerful company in history.
They’re behaving in a censorious way, and they need to be constantly called out for it.
