The algorithms that Google uses to filter out "fake news" and ensure that its readers get the straight story ended up labeling the California Republican Party's ideology as "Nazism" in its "search results." This timely smear comes just a week ahead of the state's primary elections next Tuesday.
Google CEO Pichai Sundararajan (alias: Sundar Pichai) explained the seeming "snafu" as "a logical end point for the algorithms we coded into our search engine. Historically, the ideologies of Nazism and Communism have been the most vociferous opponents of one another. Since the platform of the California Democratic Party is fundamentally indistinguishable from communism and the Republicans are adamantly opposed to this platform our software deduced that they must be akin to Nazis."
Google has manually edited their search engine to remove the Nazism tag on the Republicans, but Sundararajan could not guarantee the fix would prevent similar outcomes going forward. "We program a considerable amount of autonomy into our software," he pointed out. "It has, so to speak, a mind of its own. That mind tends to see things through a progressive prism, as do we in management. This seems right to us and preferable to a forced 'neutral' or 'balanced' perspective. We will not be bullied by those who demand neutrality or balance. They are free to use other search engines if they choose."
In other California news, Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs has plans to pay a stipend of $1,000 to people most likely to shoot someone for each month that they refrain from pulling the trigger. It won't be a giveaway for just anyone claiming they have murderous impulses. Tubbs insists that "to be eligible you have to have credible bonafides." These are expected to include prior incarcerations for violent episodes or sufficiently corroborative arrest records.

Silicon Valley will get more conservative as the looney left destroys both SF and San Jose. You don’t hear about the homelessness in San Jose but it’s BAD
I envy you. Every day new and more bizarre material for satirists becomes available. Keeping up must be challenging.
You’re either a communist or a Nazi. That’s how liberals view politics. In their world, communists are just nice people who want social and economic justice for all.
In the real world, communists are mass murderers who killed more people than the Nazis. The Nazis were socialists, not too dissimilar from communists.
tl, dr: “That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!”
