Fascist Soup reports:

You have to love Google news aggregation service.

When one Googles “tea party” – the prominent headline reads as follows:



Of course, this is highly important information that the publik needs to know.

How else can race baiting democrats launch attacks against calls for limited government if they don’t play the race card?

I find it highly disturbing that out of all the articles on all the tea parties that took place yesterday that the top headline is an obscure poll published in the Dallas Morning News that claims tea party members are white educated males.

Of course, this may very well be the case – but even if it is - who gives a crap?

If I were to Google “global warming protest” – do you think the top Google headline would be:

“New Poll Shows Most Global Warming Protestors To Be White Socialists That Collect Some Form Of Government Subsidies”

This is pure race baiting on the part of Google. Of course, Google is not alone in their efforts to portray the tea parties as racist white people that hate blacks. NBC got in on the action as well, as did a host of other statist news sources.

NBC actually asked a black guy at a tea party rally if he felt uncomfortable. As if being around white people is scary. I’ll tell you what’s scary, attending an Obama rally when you’re an anarcho-capitalist. Now that’s scary.

Google has adjusted its agregation service algorithm to highlight race baiting drama queen articles for the sole purpose of supporting the statist agenda.

That should be disturbing to everyone considering Google’s immense power.

These polls were covered on a lot of news shows, so that's probably why it's first.

Yeah, and you have to wonder why that is.

As if it provides us with some important information about the tea parties or something.

Rather than focusing on the message of the party, they focus on the actors.

Its no different than an ad hom attack we see in the forums everyday.

One more reason why the MSM is going down the crapper.

What?

Do you know how Google works?

It's a search engine. Whatever breaking news stories have more traffic, and most closely relate to the search terms you enter in the box, will pop up first.

There is absolutely no racist or political motivation behind the search result at all. It is simply a computer algorithm that returns the most pertinent results.

I don't know why being called white and intelligent makes you mad...
If anything, this is good for the tea party, as it shows them as being more intelligent than the average person, and does this mean MSM is racist, not google?

This isn't anything new for Google.

That story didn't get their through popularity.

It got there because Google has an agenda with its news sourcing.

Whether this news is "good" or "bad" is irrelevant, because the news is irrelevant. Its nothing but race baiting.

What's googles agenda then?
Global racism?
The destruction of the U.S for no apparant reason?

Whether he was right about words or not, Lenny Bruce was a remarkably influential comedian who changed forever the face of comedy by relying upon truth to find humor. When Polonious stumbled upon Hamlet reading, and asked what the matter of this reading was, Hamlet answered; "Words, words, words.", and in the end, no matter what the matter, they are just words. Here is what Bruce had to say about words that incite:




“Are there any 'n-word's here tonight? Could you turn on the house lights, please, and could the waiters and waitresses just stop serving, just for a second? And turn off this spot. Now what did he say? “Are there any 'n-word's here tonight?” I know there’s one 'n-word', because I see him back there working. Let’s see, there’s two 'n-word's. And between those two 'n-word's sits a kike. And there’s another kike— that’s two kikes and three 'n-word's. And there’s a spic. Right? Hmm? There’s another spic. Ooh, there’s a wop; there’s a polack; and, oh, a couple of greaseballs. And there’s three lace-curtain Irish micks. And there’s one, hip, thick, hunky, funky, boogie. Boogie boogie. Mm-hmm. I got three kikes here, do I hear five kikes? I got five kikes, do I hear six spics, I got six spics, do I hear seven 'n-word's? I got seven 'n-word's. Sold American. I pass with seven 'n-word's, six spics, five micks, four kikes, three guineas, and one wop. Well, I was just trying to make a point, and that is that it’s the suppression of the word that gives it the power, the violence, the viciousness. Dig: if President Kennedy would just go on television, and say, “I would like to introduce you to all the 'n-word's in my cabinet,” and if he’d just say “'n-word' 'n-word' 'n-word' 'n-word' 'n-word'” to every 'n-word' he saw, “boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie,” “'n-word' 'n-word' 'n-word' 'n-word' 'n-word'” ‘til 'n-word' didn’t mean didn’t mean anything anymore, then you could never make some six-year-old black kid cry because somebody called him a 'n-word' at school.”


~Lenny Bruce~

He is suggesting that the power of words come from the power we place upon them, and what I am suggesting is if the word racist is to have any power at all, it will be because it is used appropriately and not arbitrarily used as a pejorative to malign opponents. By attempting to smear those who advocate smaller government as "racists", these propagandist not only do an injustice to the Tea Party movement, they do an injustice to the word racist. Those who would hope to appear as if they are fighting the institution of racism by purposely stoking the fires of racism will always, in the end, appear to be who they are, and that appearance won't be flattering.

Edit to Add: I just noticed that the comedy routine quoted by Lenny Bruce has been routinely edited to appear more suitable. For the full effect of his shocking routine, here is a website that posts it:

www.last.fm...

There has always been great irony in peoples reactions to Lenny Bruce's ideas.

You know, I don't ever hear anything positive about the tea party...unless it's coming FROM the tea party. I wonder why that is?

The tea party gets a bad rap because of some of it's members. The more ignorant and uneducated types, the ones drawn in not by their outrage and disappointment but by the likes of Glenn Beck and Palin, etc.

It doesn't help either that by Fox helping them get noticed they have been made republican shills. I think the article that you reference is backlash against that... "They aren't just retarded hicks, there's educated people in there too". That's all I think it is.

No.

I'm sorry but you're dead wrong, and frankly it's hilarious.

Google's news results are the direct result of a computer algorithm that scans news results for the most popular breaking stories, then puts them on the front page when enough of your search terms match it.

There simply are no human beings making these decisions for Google. It's all done electronically. 1's and 0's.



Now, from a psychological point of view, the fact that you are interpreting this digital search result as some sort of nefarious scheme to undermine the Tea Party movement and create a racially divisive atmosphere says a lot more about you than it does about Google.

You can read all about how Google works here. It's quite an interesting read, and really helps one to understand this wonderful search-engine technology that we take for granted every day.


In case you didn't realize the article I posted is a joke and you can read about how pagerank actually works here, if you are so inclined.

No, you're wrong.

The news algo is not page rank for google search results.

The news algo runs through a prescribed set of news sources, segregates topics, and pulls headlines according to arbitrary methods.

Google frequently tweaks its news algo to inflate reporting of various sources. It is not an independent "bias free" ranking mechanism.

Allow me to prove my point.

Alex ranking for two news sources

Dallas Morning News
Alexa Traffic Rank: 3,181 Traffic Rank in US: 839

Infowars
Alexa Traffic Rank: 2,933 Traffic Rank in US: 858

How often do you think Infowars shows up as a Google News headliner?

Not only that, one simply needs to look at the main page to see where the vast majority of stories come from - think NYT, LA Times, WaPo, AP, and Bloomberg.

Because those are the most popular online news sources.

I really can't explain the fact that it is a computer generated algorithm any simpler, so I will allow Google to explain for me:



Google News is a computer-generated news site that aggregates headlines from news sources worldwide, groups similar stories together and displays them according to each reader's personalized interests.




Our articles are selected and ranked by computers that evaluate, among other things, how often and on what sites a story appears online. We also rank based on certain characteristics of news content such as freshness, location, relevance and diversity. As a result, stories are sorted without regard to political viewpoint or ideology and you can choose from a wide variety of perspectives on any given story.


About Google News

Unless you are suggesting that there is a plot amongst The Machines to discredit the Tea Party in some way, I don't think you really have a case.

S & F'd!

The liberals, politicos, and MSM will continue to mischaracterize , accuse and distort the Tea Party movement till the November elections when there will more than likely be a sweep in both houses and the governorships.

People were duped by Obama, misrepresented and ignored by Congress and otherwise treated with disregard and arrogance by Democratic leaders.

The liberal reaction is more or less identical to what happened in '94 when there was a Conservative sweep.

I'm suggesting that algo implementors have an agenda.

This is not an unbiased news sourcing service.

OF COURSE they have computers aggregate the news items, however as I said earlier, the algo that is doing it is completely biased and spits out MSM propaganda.

Just because a computer is doing it doesn't mean the programmer that sets it up is completely unbiased. In fact, I'm sure the news algo itself was the established through tons of department meetings with input from top level executives detailing exactly how to categorize sourcing and levels of importance.

That there is a conspiracy to smear the Tea Party activists as "racists" should not be in doubt, regardless of how Google handles their algorithms and aggregate news sourcing. From an 8+minute video feature on Video Cafe, where the ever reliable and rising superstar of the left, Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center continues his relentless attack on anti-government sentiment, or the Huffington Post's shameful and almost daily efforts to marginalize this grass roots movement, to sites that love to parrot what CNN or "HuffPo", are saying in order to justify titles such as: "Tea Party Racists".

From boutique sites such as Jack and Jill Politics, that bills itself as "A black bourgeoisie perspective on U.S. politics", (a tag line that in itself suggests the owners of this site have much to gain from stoking the fires of racism), to more local news sites to the chronicles of that most beloved and nationally renowned comedy team of Garafalo and Olberman with their well worn race card routines, the effort to create a meme linking anti-government sentiment with racism is an obvious effort being made by main stream media outlets.

Serious minded essays from serious minded political hacks will pretend that no effort exists at all to link the Tea Party movement to racism, and will offer such preening words as:




"When the tea party movement began last year I saw it as right-wing reaction, but given the economic turmoil across the country, I tried to understand it. Maybe there was populism within the movement that the left needed to recognize. I attended a local tea party last April 15, tax day, and while I didn't find folks whose minds seemed mutable by liberal populism, at least it seemed possible to have a conversation."


which began Joan Walsh's essay, and just one paragraph later to get to the heart of her essay:




A year later, though, it's worth more of my time to say what many resist: The tea party movement is disturbingly racist and reactionary, from its roots to its highest branches. On Saturday, as a small group of protesters jammed the Capitol and the streets around it, the movement's origins in white resistance to the Civil Rights Movement was impossible to ignore.


What follows are series of events that remain dubious in their portrayal to this day, attempting to make it appear as if the movement's origins are in "white resistance to the Civil Rights Movement", and it is "impossible" to ignore, in a large part, because so much of the main stream media is willing to give air time to Mark Potok from the SPLC, who is pushing this label hard. That it is the left who seem so intent on maintaining this link between racism and the Tea Party movement is, if not impossible to ignore, hard to ignore at the very least.

That these efforts to maintain the link between racism and the Tea Party movement have been successful should be evident by sites such as Yahoo Answers, that will go as far as offering fallacious arguments posing as rhetorical questions, or other sites acting as apologists for the "Tea Party is racist movement", is with out doubt. That it has become so pervasive, reflects a media willing to invent news that it can later analyze. So, today we are treated to new stories by the MSM casually referring to the image they helped to create, or even attempting to offer a more realistic description of the movement in general. It has been nothing more than fuel for fodder, and at the expense of a word as serious as racism.

There is a deeper psychosis involved than simple propaganda, and that psychosis lies in the desperate attempt to keep the focus of debate away from Civil Rights versus Natural Rights. Tea Party members, on a whole, tend to favor Natural Rights over Civil Rights, and this is a threat to a leftist movement who has used The Civil Rights Movement as an opportunity to minimize unalienable rights, and maximize the appeal of government granted rights. Any movement that is founded upon the belief that basic rights are unalienable and can not be granted by any other human, is a threat to the left and their agenda of population control.

Racism is not the issue, freedom and the rights of all people are. While taxation is a central issue behind the Tea Party Movement, taxation is itself an oppressive practice, and Chief Justice Marshall's famous quote; "The power to tax is the power to destroy." only underscores the seriousness of taxation, this grass roots movement known as The Tea Party Movement is filled with people who clearly understand the difference between Civil Rights and Natural Rights, and this understanding is the biggest threat of all to the left, for once Civil Rights become questionable, and the demands made are in pursuit of Natural Rights, big governments days are numbered. This is the reason racism is being used to distract anyone who might listen to a movement pushing Natural Rights for all.

Great post.

On the SPLC...thier position on this only validates my opinion that thier whole reason for being was to intimidate whites. If not then they fail as an organization that cant rightly divide the true nature of this political movement. But I think it is the former and so that expands to the fundemental reasons why they want to intimidate whites, the true fule for thier flame is demonstrated to those that have eyes to see.

In addition now that a movement has come up on the horizon that is peopled by whites perdominantly it is certain that SPLC efforts have failed and so they may flap about like a fish whos water has been let out of its tank. They need to be marginalized back to the brush camps and thier quest for the holy grail of the white race, the white robes and burning fire.

And now, in the throws of a legitimate tax protest, the rights of a free people demonstrated, in the spirit of our origianl efforts, in those days to a tyrant king in this days to a tyrant philosophy, our enimes have dragged out from its historical repose the rotting corpse of the confederacy to add to our procession that its foul stench should permeate the entire proceedings.

It's amazing to me, having been involved in one respect or another with the gatherings that have become known as the "tea parties" since the very beginning, the lies various MSM personalities have managed to generate out of whole cloth with nothing other than fierce determination and bravado to recommend their positions.

I know the secret of the tea party story, and that secret is Campaign for Liberty. The MSM could never, ever, ever cover that, because it's too terrifying. Instead, they just pile guesses on top of biases and come up with whichever meme satisfies their need to imagine people who disagree with them as morally degenerate idiots.

But, let's not forget for a moment, that we make memes too.

Here's one that I saw floating around last night:

November is coming.
