As the world wide web continues to invade each and every aspect of American life in 2019, there are serious and pressing concerns over the ability of those who pulls the strings online to influence our coming election.
The logic is sound: If Russia could use the internet to meddle in our democracy, so could Google, Facebook, Twitter, and others. And, unlike Russia, it wouldn’t take a high-level hacking team battling Silicon Valley cybersecurity experts to do so.
We’ve already seen evidence of this sort of algorithmic oppression play out in the digital landscape, with meek explanations being offered up by the powers that be online. Now, a former Google engineer is breaking his silence to bring us even more evidence of this corruption.
Kevin Cernekee told the Journal that, after his posts to the tech giant’s internal message boards in early 2015 annoyed some of his colleagues, he received an official warning from Google’s human resources. His conduct had reportedly been deemed “disrespectful and insubordinate.”
The Journal reports that around that time a senior manager at the company wrote on the message boards that he had added the engineer to a “written blacklist” of Google employees he wouldn’t work with.
Cernekee and Google certainly aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on the tech giant’s bias.
“Historically, there’s been a lot of bullying at Google,” he told the Journal. “There’s a big political angle, and they treat the two sides differently.”
“We enforce our workplace policies without regard to political viewpoint,” said a Google spokesperson, in an emailed statement to Fox News. “Lively debate is a hallmark of Google’s workplace culture; harassment, discrimination, and the unauthorized access and theft of confidential company information is not.”
Google has been repeatedly needled regarding their anti-presidential efforts, increasingly so after a hidden camera investigation captured a current high-level employee admitting that they are working to “prevent another Trump situation” in 2020.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
