The tech giant Google continues to publicly deny any political partisanship whatsoever, even as the revelations keep coming every day from Project Veritas. On Thursday, the watchdog group released yet another leaked document from a disgruntled Google insider, this one a blueprint for helping organize anti-Trump protests. Titled “The Beginner’s Guide to Protesting (#GooglersUnite),” the guide says the internal group's mission is to “assemble best practices and ensure that everyone feels comfortable and pumped about [email protected] marches/protests.”
The guide offers helpful hints for leftist Googlers on slogans for protest signs (“Resist,” “No Ban No Wall,” “#NoMuslimBan #No Wall,” and the inexplicable “Muslims cure cancer.”) It also suggests chants for marchers (“From Palestine to Mexico, All the walls have got to go”) and tips on how to disrupt traffic.
In the meantime, the various Silicon Valley sites seem to be circling the wagons by trying to silence the revelations. Project Veritas has already had its videos blocked by Pinterest, Google-owned YouTube and other sites; not for lying but for reporting on them. Now, the video-hosting site Viemo has joined the club, banning Project Veritas for allegedly posting videos that are “hateful, defamatory or discriminatory.” I don’t see how they’re any of those things, although they are starting to make a lot of Americans hate Silicon Valley.
Project Veritas is fighting back via legal means, and the tech giants might want to consider that they’ve already come under the scrutiny of the White House and Congress for apparently conspiring to censor political speech.
In the meantime, I will keep reminding you that no matter what Twitter or Facebook do, you can always get my commentary daily in my newsletter and at www.mikehuckabee.com, and you can sign up to follow me at @MikeHuckabee at the pro-free speech site Parler.com, whose CEO told Apple to go whistle up a rope when they tried to get Parler to censor “offensive” (i.e., “conservative”) content.
