Googles SJWs considered ways to counter Trumps travel ban

Google is quite clear in their denials of manipulating search results to favor leftist ideologies. That concept was lost on a group of employees who brainstormed about ways to leverage search in ways that would counter President Trump’s travel bans last year.

Some of the ideas proposed included displaying links to people that took them to pro-immigration websites when they searched for certain hot-button topics. Another thought was to drive people to websites where they could contact their lawmakers and speak out against the travel bans.

Google staff discussed tweaking search results to counter travel ban: WSJ

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-google-travelban/google-staff-discussed-tweaking-search-results-to-counter-travel-ban-wsj-idUSKCN1M103OThe Google employees proposed ways to “leverage” search functions and take steps to counter what they considered to be “islamophobic, algorithmically biased results from search terms ‘Islam’, ‘Muslim’, ‘Iran’, etc.” and “prejudiced, algorithmically biased search results from search terms ‘Mexico’, ‘Hispanic’, ‘Latino’, etc,” the Journal added, quoting from the emails.

A Google spokesperson said the emails represented brainstorming and none of the ideas were implemented. She said the company does not manipulate search results or modify products to promote political views.

My Take

Whether it’s Google, Facebook, or any of the big internet power players, conservatives have to assume the people pulling the strings are against them. It doesn’t matter how many times they’re exposed or how many denials they put out. They have a leftist worldview and they can’t stand their users who don’t share their opinions.

Be armed with the truth and proceed with caution any time you’re using any of these sites. They need you and the revenue you represent, but they still hate you.

Justice Democrats’ and House Democrats’ Twitter accounts engage in organizational fight

Justice Democrats and House Democrats Twitter accounts engage in organizational fight

The bitter battle between the Justice Democrats and Establishment Democrats has spilled over to their organizational Twitter accounts. While the Establishment Democrats come to the rescue of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in her quarrel with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, her Chief of Staff and co-founder of the Justice Democrats, Saikat Chakrabarti, inserted himself into the conversation.

Whoever controls the House Democrats’ Twitter account fired a low blow at Chakrabarti.

The Justice Democrats replied with a point that is actually quite valid.

Then, Chakrabarti himself made an important point.

I am never inclined to defend the Justice Democrats or Chakrabarti, but they were correct on this one issue. It was a silly attack made on an account that’s supposed to represent the entire body of the House Democrats, and as of today AOC is still part of that body. To go after Chakrabarti through that account only plays into the Justice Democrats’ notion that the Establishment is old and ready to be replaced.

Clumsy efforts by the Establishment Democrats helped the Justice Democrats score points with their base. Having the @HouseDemocrats account chime in was a rookie move. Expect Saikat Chakrabarti to take full advantage of their mistake.

Article about Imam Mohamad Tawhidi pulled down over threat of lawsuit

An article that appeared on NOQ Report last week has been removed following threats of a lawsuit. In our current revenue situation, we are not in a position to defend against lawsuits from powerful people like Imam Mohamad Tawhidi, known on Twitter as the “Imam of Peace.”

It should be noted that Tawhidi did not request the article to be pulled, only edited. While I appreciate his position and the cordial way he has handled this from the start, the author of the piece was unable to edit the story in a way that would be satisfactory without changing the premise and conclusion of the article itself. The only recourse was to remove the article altogether.

As much as I hate censorship in just about any situation, prudence is called for in this particular circumstance. Despite incredible growth in traffic – more than triple of what we had in March of this year – revenue has been challenged. Our attempts to be completely crowdfunded have not yielded the dollars necessary to be able to fight lawsuits. I hate most ads but at this point they’re necessary. Even a frivolous lawsuit could be enough to shut the site down, which is why we continue to ask for donations whenever possible.

It’s saddening to have to resort to taking down articles when faced with challenges, but we know if we persevere we will continue to grow. Someday, we will have the clout to fight lawsuits, but for now we are fighting for survival.

Democrats give tips to migrants on how to avoid ICE deportations

Democrats and progressive activists continue to frame the ICE raids and deportations planned for today as an issue of race. But there’s a problem with this framing, as Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ) noted on Fox News yesterday.

These aren’t random minorities targeted because of their skin color. They are people who entered the country illegally and were properly adjudicated to be designated for removal. They had their day in court. Some went and were denied whatever claims they were making. Most just didn’t show up for their hearing. Either way, they had an opportunity to stay in the United States and they failed to meet their obligations.

The ultimate form of immigration virtue signalling today being used by many Democrats is to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation. As our EIC noted last week, they should be charged with a crime. But instead, they’re being heralded as compassionate heroes by the left who views subversion of federal law enforcement and the forced deterioration of law and order as positives. They do not believe in the sovereignty of our nation as they push for open borders and a globalist-controlled United States.

Any Democrat caught aiding and abetting illegal immigrants should be arrested. It’s breaking the law.

If someone helps an American citizen evade law enforcement after committing a crime, that person is arrested and charged. If a Democrat helps an illegal immigrant evade law enforcement, they get praised by the left. It’s insane.
