Recently leaked documents from Project Veritas demonstrated a level of bias that even I found a bit surprising. One page seemed to out right state that their goal was to "program people" through the use of algorithms. Veritas just released another video of Ted Cruz asking a Google executive if she thinks its Google's job to "prevent the next Trump situation". Obviously she denies that Google holds these policies but despite what these companies say publicly, it's quite apparent there is a bias against conservatives and even Christians in general, under the guise of preventing "fake news" and increasing "fairness".

These atheist tech nerds feel it is their job to steer society in the right direction. Before taking offense at that statement I should point out I am an atheist tech nerd, well I'm agnostic now because I can admit I don't have all the answers, but I was atheist for a long time and I've never been religious. That is precisely the reason I felt compelled to make this thread, because I understand exactly how they think and why they have so much animosity towards Christianity.

We are now coming to a point where a large fraction of those on the left seem to believe there is no longer any room for conservatism or Christianity, but ironically they will give protections to all other religions because doing otherwise would be discrimination. In their mind, if a conservative wins an election then something must have went wrong, fake news and Russian bots must have influenced the election. The problem is not everything people believe comes from what they read online.

There is a thing called the real world, and in it the majority of U.S. citizens are religious. The same thing is true for other western nations, although the U.S. tends to have far less Atheists than other western nations. I know it's hard being an Atheist living in a religious world, but it's not the place of corporations to tell us how to think, nor is it morally right to socially engineer society in a direction you want by simply censoring your opponents. This approach will only make people empathize with those being censored.

However it's not totally the fault of these tech companies, they have also been pressured by certain congress members and other sections of the government to take pro-activate measures aimed at preventing election meddling. They interpreted this as a free pass to dictate the course of elections rather than just ensure the integrity of elections, and they don't seem to realize the very precarious situation they have put themselves into by attempting to influence and interfere with elections. Russia could only dream of having the resources they have.

Here is something Zuckerberg said when he was called in to testify before congress last year:

2018 is an incredibly important year for elections, not just with the U.S. mid-terms, but around the world there are important elections, in India, in Brazil, in Mexico, in Pakistan, and in Hungary. We want to make sure that we do everything we can to protect the integrity of those elections. Now, I have more confidence that we're gonna get this right, because since the 2016 election, there have been several important elections around the world where we've had a better record. There was the French presidential election, there was the German election, there was the U.S. senate Alabama special election last year... so we've deployed new AI tools that do a better job of identifying fake accounts that may be trying to interfere in elections or spread misinformation, and between those 3 elections we were able to pro-actively remove tens of thousands of accounts before they could contribute significant harm.

Zuckerberg on what Facebook is doing to prevent foreign actors from interfering in future elections


Clearly the 3 elections referenced by Zuckerberg are seen as having a better outcome because in France Le Pen (right-wing) lost to Macron (left-wing) and in the Alabama special election Roy Moore (Republican) lost to Doug Jones (Democrat). I'm not sure what German election he's talking about because they seem to have a weird election system, but the current President of Germany seems to be from a socialist party. Zuckerberg is essentially pointing to the outcome of these elections as some sort of proof this new AI is affecting the outcome of elections in a way they prefer.

In her rebuttal to the Project Veritas undercover video, Jen Gennai claims that they cut and edited the video in a deceptive way, a defense often used by people caught saying things they wish Project Veritas didn't catch them saying. The reality is it's hard to interpret what Jen says in any other way than the way it is clearly meant to be interpreted. This doesn't mean she is a "cartoon cut-out villain", Jen is a human being like the rest of a us, and none of us are perfect.

She and others on the left are allowed the feel the way they feel about Trump, but it's not right to use their technical power over society in order to spread what amounts to propaganda. Having a "truth database" and using that to determine what people can and cannot see is absurd and is inherently susceptible to bias because the truth is often subjective. She may say "Google has no notion of political ideology in its rankings" but this is nothing but clever wordplay because they use indirect methods which have no notion of political ideology, they're simply filtering out "fake stuff".

I'm not totally against the idea of filtering information which is clearly false especially if it could harm people, but I also don't think some bots on the internet are an existential threat. I think it's sad to have have such little faith in humanity or believe people are so dumb that they need their tech overlords to filter out the bad stuff instead of allowing them to make up their own mind. It's also quite clear they're more than willing to label something real as a "debunked conspiracy theory". These tech companies think people are too dumb to see their deception, and that is why their plan will ultimately fail.

Well it's obviously more of an atheist thing than anything else, although I don't want to generalize all atheists. There are just some people who find it very hard to tolerate organized religion, I used to be like that myself. It seemed obvious to me so many of the worlds problems could be solved if organized religion was eradicated, I often debated Christians to show how wrong they were about everything they believed. These days though I really think it has more to do with politics than anything else, they simply see that conservatives are usually Christian. In their mind nothing a conservative says can be trusted because they are crazy people who believe in ancient fairy tales and conspiracy theories.

This is how a Corporatocracy begins .

It’s the vicious media circle.

Mainstream media blames social media for their loss.

Social media believes it and actively promotes mainstream media narratives.

Mainstream media ends bad publicity of social media.

They can only succeed in manipulating the easily manipulated (thick people)

Those who blindly chant “Think how WE think or we’ll attack you” in the same breath they call you a “fascist”

Those who lie and say “the Russians influenced the election” in the same breath state “social media should be used to silence right-wing views”

Thick people indeed

(Conservative speech is hate speech. cNn and youtube told us so)

Whyis it not quoting as it has for a decade? I tried quoting the whole, "I used to like to debate Christians and show how they were wrong about everyrhing they believe."

Because they think they're intellectual Gods who know everything about everything. Also they link Christians and conservatives together which makes them by default the enemy.

Project Veritas has been caught selectively editing video before.

I would double check anything that comes out of PV.

True atheists have no opinion of religion and do not fear God or the paranormal. It was fun to debate a religious person, but did not begrudge the person for what they believed in. A true atheist thinks no more or less of a religious person, because we are all in the world together. A true atheist won't belittle a believer's religion or that person.

The "atheists" at google are not atheist. They are satanists hiding behind the atheist paradigm.

Google is a Goddamned satanist organization...

Good point !

I was thinking more along the lines of a Rollerball or Soylent Green type scenario .

But you’re still correct .

No, don't be silly, they aren't satanists, they are simply Statists... which imo is a far more damaging religion than Christianity or any of the other religions - with the exception of Islam, which isn't actually a religion, it is a radical ideology of hate and intolerance.
