Google executives at their first weekly meeting after the election of Donald Trump in 2016 exhibited panic and dismay while expressing their determination to thwart the new administration’s agenda as well as the emerging global populist movement, a video obtained by Breitbart News reveals.
The weekly “TGIF” or “Thank God It’s Friday” meeting in November 2016 featured Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat and CEO Sundar Pichai.
Earlier this week, it was reported Google tried to boost turnout among the Latino population to help Hillary Clinton win.
Brin can be heard in the video comparing Trump supporters to fascists and extremists.
The Google co-founder asserts Trump voters were motivated by “boredom,” which in the past, he says, has led to fascism and communism.
VP for Global Affairs Kent Walker contends Trump supporters are motivated by “fear, xenophobia, hatred and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”
Google, Walker later says, should ensure that the populist movement is merely a “blip” and a “hiccup” in a historical arc that “bends toward progress.”
Pichai says the “misinformation” propagated by “low-information voters” can be address through Google’s development of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Brin states early in the meeting that the particular gathering is “probably not the most joyous we’ve had” and that “most people here are pretty upset and pretty sad.”
He says he’s “deeply offen[ded]” by the election of Trump, whose values conflict with many of Google’s.
‘Revolving door’ with Obama administration
President Trump recently accused Google of rigging its news searches against him. And as WND reported last week, a new film contends Google has crossed its executive chairman’s self-described “creepy line,” not only invading the privacy of millions of users but using its monopolistic stature to suppress conservative views and influence elections.
Peter Schweizer, the producer of the film, “The Creepy Line,” noted Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt’s role in the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016 and the “massive revolving door between Google and the Obama administration.”
“Life After Google” author George Gilder also has documented the Google founders’ utopian vision, which he describes with terms such as “neo-Marxist.”
“They are very much steeped in the tradition of Burning Man and what Burning Man represents,” Schweizer said of Google’s top executives, including Schmidt, and their participation in the annual Bohemian-style festival in the Nevada desert known for its principle of “radical inclusion.”
Schweizer emphasized that Google is certainly entitled to its worldview and can run the company as it wishes, but it can’t continue to insist that it’s a neutral platform and therefore immune to the requirements that publishers face under the Communications Decency Act of 1996.
Google is not a neutral platform, like a telegraph company, he said, that merely relays information from one point to another.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to meet with state attorney generals this month regarding Google and other tech giants, and the Justice Department has indicated that antitrust action is under consideration.
WND reported last month the recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration.
A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017 by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time.
The memo spells out a four-year agenda that deployed Media Matters along with four other groups to attack Trump and Republicans.
The strategies are impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat “fake news.”
