Bullying A Leftist Think Tank Pierces Google’s Carefully Cultivated ‘Don’t Be Evil’ Image

Google shows what ‘Silicon Valley progressivism’ means: being the Left’s enforcers in the culture wars, in exchange for dispensation for economic sins.

I wrote recently about how Google is in danger of breaking the implicit social contractwith its users by becoming seen as a politicized organization. But that was when Google was seen by the Right as being politicized for firing an engineer who expressed politically incorrect ideas.

Now Google is using its political influence against the Left by getting a group of scholars bounced out of a center-left think tank for supporting antitrust action against Google’s “monopoly.”

    Left Right or Center, Google like Facebook is slowly becoming the thought police for a new generation and as such will not tolerate any interference or deviation from their express goal of controlling the population. I personally consider Google and Facebook as the new crack cocaine addiction of the masses.

    The tech-left in the US is behaving a LOT like the Bolsheviks immediately in the wake of the Russian civil war in the 1920’s.
    Next we will witness the revived charge of “wrecking”.
    The show trials will be public firings, and executions will be replaced with professional ostracism, but exile will remain the same.
    They don’t need GULAGs and firing squads, they have more sophisticated means of coercion, but the aftertaste of oppression will be the same.

    Google does not have permanent friends or enemies, only permanent interests.
