Don’t Be Evil

Don’t be evil.

Don’t be evil is Google’s motto, maybe somebody should remind them of their motto because lately it seems that Google has been acting kind of “evil.”

If you haven’t noticed by now, Google’s leftist, progressiveness is starting to show. This is very apparent in their new terms of service.

Google earlier in the month had announced a new initiative on YouTube to help push people away from videos they deem terrorism propaganda and steer them towards content that debunks extremist messaging and mythology. The Redirect Method basically redirects users searching specific keywords such as on topics such as terrorism or some extreme ideology on YouTube to playlists featuring videos that counter extremist content.

Google has started using AI-assisted video detection and removal as well as help from human moderators. The AI-assisted video detection has removed in its first month over 75 percent of violent, extremist content was done so without human moderators.

There are so many things that not just YouTube content makers should worry about but anybody who uses Google should be cautious of.

Even if your video contains “controversial religious or supremacist content” but don’t violate any of YouTube’s policies, they can be placed in a “limited state” a YouTube spokesperson said. YouTube also states that “The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.”

So even if a video doesn’t violate YouTube’s Terms of Service, they can hide it. This is a loop-hole for YouTube to virtually remove a video for any reason really.

Another reason to be worried is that Google has started working with “15 additional expert NGOs and institutions through our Trusted Flagger program, including the Anti-Defamation League, the No Hate Speech Movement, and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue.”

In the YouTube Official Blog, it states that “These organizations bring expert knowledge of complex issues like hate speech, radicalization, and terrorism that will help us better identify content that is being used to radicalize and recruit extremists.”

If you still aren’t convinced that Google is a leftist, progressive organization which detests dissenting ideas and opinions then brace yourself.

Last week Google fired computer engineer James Damore for a memo, Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber which criticizes “Google’s left bias has created a politically correct mono-culture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence”.

Google’s chief executive, Sundar Pichai, said portions of Damore’s 10-page memo “violate our code of conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes”. He also goes on to state that “much of what was in that memo is fair to debate,” but noted it crossed the line. But instead of having dialogue which seems like Pichai maybe alluding to, in typical liberal fashion Damore was shut down and ostracized from Silicon Valley.

James Damore points out in the memo that “Google’s left bias has created a politically correct mono-culture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence”.

He continues, “The distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes, and that these differences may explain why we don’t see equal representation of women in tech and leadership.”

What nobody talks about is not just the relationship between Silicon Valley but more specifically the relationship between Susan Wojcicki, YouTube’s CEO and Hillary Clinton. Susan Wojcicki was a major donor for Clinton’s campaign. Most of Silicon Valley were donor’s to Hillary’s campaign.

Hillary Clinton continues to this day to blame fake news (as well as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation James Comey, the Russian President Vladimir Putin, WikiLeaks, as well as others) for her lose. Maybe her relationship with Wojcicki is an influence on YouTube’s new guidelines.

According to Hillary:

“Let me just mention one threat in particular that should concern all Americans — the epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year. It’s now clear that so-called fake news have real-world consequences. . . Silicon Valley are starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news.”

One great example of “fake news” is:

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Oops! I guess she forgot about this piece of “fake news”! All roads seems to lead to Hillary.
