Did Google Manipulate YouTube Search Results?

See the source image

Most of us around here believe the social media actively censor conservative posts and videos in favor of Far Left Crazy videos. Some of us have experienced it for ourselves. Nevertheless, last month the Google CEO told Congress that the folks at Google never “manually intervene” on any particular search result.

Now Breitbart.com claims to have received, via a leak from a Google engineer, information that Google routinely tries to skew search results in favor of left-wing causes (https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/01/16/google-youtube-search-blacklist-smoking-gun/).

Breitbart says Google has “manipulated YouTube search results for abortion, Maxine Waters, David Hogg,” and others.

After a Far Left “journalist” complained about too many pro-life videos on YouTube, Google went to work and pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for abortion and replaced them with pro-abortion videos.

If this is true–and I find it hard to believe that it isn’t–then really the time has come for some kind of anti-trust action to be taken against the social media giants. It certainly looks like they’re using their technology to try to suppress conservative opinion and promote the agenda of Democrats and their Far Left Crazy clients.

If there were meaningful competition in the social media market, then Google’s Far Left prejudices would be their own business. But such competition does not as yet exist, and you can be sure there are people working to make sure it never will. We don’t have time to wait for competitive social media platforms to grow and become just as strong as Google–not with a national election coming up next year.

Because if Google’s Democrat friends ever get back into power, they’ll see to it that there’s no way to get rid of them.

Welcome to Venezuela North.


My Newswithviews Column, Dec. 20 (‘The Mask Falls Off’)

I will never understand why Americans voted last month to give the House of Representatives back to the Democrats. We must be terribly short on self-respect.

It’s the nearest we could come to selling it to a hostile foreign power.

Or to space aliens.


‘Flash! Eco-Fascist Prosecutor Backs Down’ (2016)

Lest we forget! Here’s a story that would have turned out very differently, had Hillary Far Left Crazy Clinton been elected president two years ago.

I fear a lot of Americans have forgotten just how serious Democrats were–and are!–about prosecuting the “crime” of “climate change denial.” They weren’t joking, boys ‘n’ girls: they really do want to pack you off to prison if you don’t believe in Global Warming/Climate Change.

This little flutter by the attorney general in the U.S. Virgin Islands was only their first tentative test of the political waters, to see if they could get away with it. When they ran into more opposition than they bargained for, they backed off.

But don’t think for a minute that they’ve abandoned their dream of jailing people for having wrong opinions.

Please don’t ever give them the opportunity to prove that I was right.


‘Protesters’ Threaten Tucker Carlson’s Family

“Hey, Tucker! Shut up or we’ll hurt your family!”

Okay, America. You let Democrats get some of their power back this week. Now take a closer look at what you voted for.

On Wednesday night some twenty “protesters” assembled at the home of Fox News conservative commentator Tucker Carlson to spray-paint anarchist symbols on his driveway, make a lot of noise, and scare his family (https://www.apnews.com/5aa41068747f4e41b39947f761462f96). “They were threatening my family to get me to stop talking,” Carlson said.

Washington, D.C., police are investigating the incident as “a possible hate crime.” Gee, ya think?

So far none of the left-wing noozies has applauded the incident and several have expressed disapproval of it. None of these same people seemed to mind when Democrat mobs assaulted Republican politicians and members of the Trump administration, screaming in their faces and chasing them out of restaurants.

Voters, you wanted the Mob Rule Party, and now you’ve got it. Bon appetite.

 


‘University: “No Such Thing as Free Speech”‘ (2015)

Image result for images of no free speech allowed

I actually went to this shabby excuse for higher education, Rutgers University. Back then (1967-71), they pretty much beat it into your head that you had to dissent–well, not from what they were selling: you had to “dissent” from what your parents, your church, and your country stood for.

Now it’s even loonier.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/08/26/university-no-such-thing-as-free-speech/

Yup, now there’s no free speech at all! In fairness to the past, a lot of the excellent professors that I had would be kicked out today for failure to be Politically Correct.

Trust me on this: We Americans are “educating” ourselves to death.


Censors Ban Another Christian Website

The latest victim is Lifesite News, given 12 hours’ notice by its unidentified “web host” before being taken down (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/urgent-lifesite-is-under-attack)–so they’re scrambling to find another server.

I do not know why nobody’s identifying the “web host” who has done this. I checked several sources and couldn’t find a name, not even from Lifesite itself.

Using the same kind of smear tactics that very nearly kept Brett Kavanagh off the Supreme Court, a “gay activist” bombarded Lifesite’s server with complaints, going so far as to say the folks at Lifesite subjected him to “property damage and a physical assault.” We believe this for, like, zero nanoseconds. But it seems that it’s always easier to give in to Organized Sodomy, just to stop the screaming. No one ever stands up to them.

Lifesite’s only “crime” was to stand up for Biblical morality in an age of moral anarchy. Liberals can’t tolerate that.

How many non-Far Left Crazy websites are going to be banned or suspended in the run-up to next month’s elections? How many will ever be allowed to come back?

The Mob Rule Party, formerly known as the Democrats, does not intend for freedom of speech to be part of our country’s future. They’re showing their hand quite clearly.

If we, the American people, fail to crush the Left in this election, we’ll be sorry.


‘Perverting the Law’ (2015)

Ben Hur Ben Hur 1925 Fred Niblo Ramon Novarro - Stock Image

Normal people under liberal government

We found it galling enough, sometimes, that the law told us what we couldn’t do. But we didn’t know when we were well off. Not content with telling us what we can’t do, liberals and other Democrats now craft laws to tell us what we must do.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/09/09/perverting-the-law/

The worst of it is when they tell you what you must say. When they are able to force you to say things that you know to be untrue and abominable, they torpedo your self-respect square amidships. Boom! Straight to the bottom.

No one can stand up to tyranny if his self-respect has been dissolved.


College Speech Fascists Lose Another Lawsuit

Image result for images of academic freedom

After four years of being suspended from his livelihood, a professor at Marquette University in Wisconsin has won a lawsuit against the school and will be reinstated with full back pay and benefits (https://www.wnd.com/2018/09/prof-returns-after-beating-university-in-free-speech-fight/).

Supposedly a Catholic university, Marquette apparently opposes the word of God when it comes to sexual morality. The professor criticized, on his own blog, a graduate assistant for slapping down a student who didn’t support homosexual “marriage.” “Gay rights,” babbled the assistant, are now “undisputed” (really?), and anyone who doesn’t think so is “homophobic.” The professor was punished for criticizing that.

Marquette doesn’t much care for Catholic dogma, but it’s all aboard for Far Left liberal fascist dogma. But the prof has sued them and won. Won everything: the college got skunked by the Wisconsin Supreme Court. And sternly rebuked, too.

The fact is that speech codes and all the rest of the looniversity hogwash are blatantly unconstitutional and cannot be honored by any court of law. So we need more lawsuits of this nature–and the plaintiffs ought to start asking for punitive damages.

And the American people ought to demand an end to all public funding of the universities. Why pay them to train up little fascists?


Why I’m With the GOP

Image result for images of charging elephant

From time to time, I take flak for being unabashedly Republican. That is not to say I trust or respect the GOP leadership: saying that would be untrue. But ours is a two-party system, and third parties are nothing but a waste of time and votes. You’re either with the Stupid Party or the Evil Party.

Democrats are wedded–and “welded” might be an even better word–to principles and policies that are irredeemably wicked, to say nothing of insane. I do remember a time when normal people used to be Democrats, but that time seems to have passed. So you might say I’m a Republican because it’s the most practical way of opposing the Democrat Party.

If you vote for any Democrat, here’s what you’re voting for, and make no mistake about it: abortion; “transgender” stuff; same-sex marriage, and you’d better endorse it or else; criminalization of religious and political beliefs; criminalization of “climate change denial” (don’t laugh: it was on Hillary’s platform in 2016); erasure of our immigration laws; disastrous experiments in “open borders”; destruction of created wealth by burdensome and non-helpful regulations; the return of the “mandate” portion of Obamacare; subordination of American interests to the UN and other “global” bodies; an all-out plunge into laws and regulations to fight imaginary “climate change”; transformation of official government agencies, that we all pay for, into partisan organs of the Democrat Party, charged with stifling dissent and opposition; the purposeful embrace of socialism…

Had enough? Need I go on?

Let me make the usual disclaimer: there are plenty of corrupt swamp rats in the GOP. It would be an excellent thing to weed them out. The Republican donor class would love to inundate America with a flood of cheap labor from the Third World. These Republicans are not our friends, and there are plenty of them. Nevertheless, the Republican Party is the only tool in the box right now, and we’d better use it.

The Democrat Party must be totally defeated. Realization of its goals would be the thorough destruction of America. They have not been bashful about telling us what those goals are.

It is the party of Antifa.

It must be utterly defeated and driven into oblivion, never to return.

And then we can start weeding out the vipers in the GOP.


‘PC Thought Police Invade Fantasy’ (2015)

Image result for images of h.p. lovecraft fantasy award

Don’t look at it too long! It’ll turn you into a racist.

Nowhere is safe from Social Justice Warriors. Not even fantasy.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/16/pc-thought-police-invade-fantasy/

It’s true that as a young man in the 1920s, H.P. Lovecraft was what some today would call a “racist.” In fact, he had little face-to-face contact with people in general, and had no opportunities to practice racism. Later on in his short life, he became a socialist. But I don’t hold his naivete and inexperience against him. The great fantasy writer knew very little of the real world.

Our friend “jessicafischerqueen” recently went into a local bookstore, looking for some collections of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. There weren’t any on the shelves. It turned out that they kept the Lovecraft books under the counter, like pornography–because Lovecraft was “a racist.” So you shouldn’t read anything he wrote!

And you need Them to make your decisions for you! You couldn’t possibly read an H.P. Lovecraft horror story without being turned into a raging racist! You couldn’t possibly just ignore the writer’s occasional throwaway lines that wouldn’t pass muster today. Oh, no! Today you read The Case of Charles Dexter Ward; tomorrow you join the KKK.

Are you tired of Them making your decisions for you?
