LOL! Why Even Try To Suppress Sites Anymore?
Google responded by blaming a “rogue” contractor it employs for going too far in how they instruct site raters. How convenient. Feels like we’ve all seen this movie before: do something wrong, get caught, blame someone, issue milquetoast apology. I’m finding that a little hard to believe personally, given Silicon Valley’s jackbooted track record lately.
But, that’s not my bigger point here. Look at how this story broke in the first place. It came from within Google’s extended family of contractors.
That companies like Google think they can simply suppress information people want hilariously illustrates just how desperate they are to protect their withering cultural/political narrative of open borders, thought-policing, multiculturalism, etc.
Suppression has not worked here. Suppression will never work here. Yet, it is entertaining to watch these companies step on a rake over and over again.
Leakers are everywhere. They work at just about every level imaginable inside companies and institutions of all sizes.
This decentralized distribution of potential leakers makes the task of tracking and finding them harder than any game of whack-a-mole one can conceive. When one leaker gets taken down, more take their place.
Perhaps Google can illegally screen for politics during the hiring process, but what happens when a talented software engineer or product manager gets red pilled while working there for years, all while building up loads of trust and relationships during their tenure? Then, reaches out to any number of right wing outlets that are only too happy to blow the story wide open. Good luck preventing that, morons!
Here’s a wild and crazy idea: quit destroying our inalienable rights.
