Google’s Eric Schmidt Is An As*hole

Google’s Eric Schmidt calls for ‘spell-checkers for hate and harassment’

Google’s Eric Schmidt has called on the technology industry to put its collective intelligence behind tackling terrorism on the internet, by building “spell-checkers, but for hate and harassment”.

Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google’s parent company Alphabet, wrote in the New York Times that individuals, tech companies and governments all have a role to play in ensuring the internet is only used for positive ends.

Whose ends?

    “…sort of like spell-checkers, but for hate and harassment”

    Condescending prick.

    • Another in a long line of totalitarian corporatists.

      • An incompetent, contemptible, dweeb, so lacking of IQ some might say he had fecal matter for brains.

        Does that pass your test Mr.Schmidt?

    • Clausewitz

      This is the beginning of the death of the first amendment.

    These means that IF it is used in the pure form the quran verses from the quran that promote hatred should be flagged . But the downside is that victims of hate can’t tell their story and use the hateful slurs to show how they were treated.
    Historical wrongs to some groups will be flagged if the events are reported as facts in hindsight to make a point .

    People will create new catch-words or a code to get around this, just as the media and Police are vague with some crimes related to a beheading or gang shooting which is an inferred code for Muslims or Blacks .

    He’s likely responding to direct demands from EU countries who want to do specifically this. Of course in their minds, it means intentionally fomenting antisemitism and never ever ever EVER saying a bad word about Islam.

    How can people so smart about one thing be so stupid about another?

    How about the technology industry to put its collective intelligence behind hacking Eric Schmidt’s bank accounts and draining them.

    Well, with freedom of the internet soon to be history, no more negative stories about whiny indians. Just watched Turdeau on tv give Canada back to the indians. He announced that 1. all spending caps will be taken off whiny indian programs 2. more millions spent on education 3. All restrictions put on them by Harper will be removed 4. Canada will sign and obey United Nations charter on whiny indian rights 5. forty million dollar inquiry into missing indians 6. All infrastructer building including roads must be approved by whiny indians etc. etc. Between muslims and whiny indians, Panama is getting to look mighty good. Gotta a couple of old army buddies who retired there.

    I’ll wager a premium BCF membership with bar privileges and valet parking that the Bible fails his sniff test and the Quran passes.
