(Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.com ...
Just listened to about half that. Apparently Google doesn’t do butthurt well.
One person did say she respected the process though. That’s at least something.
It is disturbing an entire company as big as Google is all leftists. Something very wrong with that. It tells me it should be broken up and regulated like a utility company with oversight.
It simply grew too big. It’s at least as powerful as the US Government right now in many ways.
Ha! So busted....then, they (their ‘management’) tells a HUGE whopper and says....we/our product sales/assembly/design aren’t biased.
They’ve also been busted with swaying searches, etc., FOR HELLary, during the campaign.
Folks need to see what was said, at this leftist company meeting...
From your linked article....
Key moments from the video can be found at the following timestamps:
(00:00:00 00:01:12) Google co-founder Sergey Brin states that the weekly meeting is probably not the most joyous weve had and that most people here are pretty upset and pretty sad.
(00:00:24) Brin contrasts the disappointment of Trumps election with his excitement at the legalization of cannabis in California, triggering laughs and applause from the audience of Google employees.
(00:01:12) Returning to seriousness, Brin says he is deeply offen[ded] by the election of Trump, and that the election conflicts with many of [Googles] values.
(00:09:10) Trying to explain the motivations of Trump supporters, Senior VP for Global Affairs, Kent Walker concludes: fear, not just in the United States, but around the world is fueling concerns, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.
(00:09:35) Walker goes on to describe the Trump phenomenon as a sign of tribalism thats self-destructive [in] the long-term.
(00:09:55) Striking an optimistic tone, Walker assures Google employees that despite the election, history is on our side and that the moral arc of history bends towards progress.
(00:10:45) Walker approvingly quotes former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzis comparison between the world of the wall with its isolation and defensiveness and the world of the square, the piazza, the marketplace, where people come together into a community and enrich each others lives.
(00:13:10) CFO Ruth Porat appears to break down in tears when discussing the election result.
(00:15:20) Porat promises that Google will use the great strength and resources and reach we have to continue to advance really important values.
(00:16:50) Stating we all need a hug, she then instructs the audience of Google employees to hug the person closest to them.
(00:20:24) Eileen Noughton, VP of People Operations, promises that Googles policy team in DC is all over the immigration issue and that the company will keep a close watch on it.
(00:21:26) Noughton jokes about Google employees asking, Can I move to Canada? after the election. She goes on to seriously discuss the options available to Google employees who wish to leave the country.
(00:23:12) Noughton does acknowledge diversity of opinion and political persuasion and notes that she has heard from conservative Google employees who say they havent felt entirely comfortable revealing who [they] are. and urged tolerance. (Several months later, the company would fire James Damore allegedly for disagreeing with progressive narratives.)
(00:27:00) Responding to a question about filter bubbles, Sundar Pichai promises to work towards correcting Googles role in them
(00:27:30) Sergey Brin praises an audience members suggestion of increasing matched Google employee donations to progressive groups.
(00:34:40) Brin compares Trump voters to extremists, arguing for a correlation between the economic background of Trump supporters and the kinds of voters who back extremist movements. Brin says that voting is not a rational act and that not all of Trumps support can be attributed to income disparity. He suggests that Trump voters might have been motivated by boredom rather than legitimate concerns.
(00:49:10) An employee asks if Google is willing to invest in grassroots, hyper-local efforts to bring tools and services and understanding of Google products and knowledge so that people can make informed decisions that are best for themselves. Pichais response: Google will ensure its educational products reach segments of the population [they] are not [currently] fully reaching.
(00:54:33) An employee asks what Google is going to do about misinformation and fake news shared by low-information voters. Pichai responds by stating that investments in machine learning and AI are a big opportunity to fix the problem.
(00:56:12) Responding to an audience member, Walker says Google must ensure the rise of populism doesnt turn into a world war or something catastrophic and instead is a blip, a hiccup.
(00:58:22) Brin compares Trump voters to supporters of fascism and communism, linking the former movement to boredom, which Brin previously linked to Trump voters. It sort of sneaks up sometimes, really bad things says Brin.
(01:01:15) A Google employee states: speaking to white men, theres an opportunity for you right now to understand your privilege and urges employees to go through the bias-busting training, read about privilege, read about the real history of oppression in our country. He urges employees to discuss the issues you are passionate about during Thanksgiving dinner and dont back down and laugh it off when you hear the voice of oppression speak through metaphors. Every executive on stage the CEO, CFO, two VPs and the two Co-founders applaud the employee.
(01:01:57) An audience member asks if the executives see anything positive from this election result. The audience of Google employees, and the executives on stage, burst into laughter. Boy, thats a really tough one right now says Brin.
The question suggests not every single person working at google is a brain damaged leftist. Most but not all. In the closet conservatives maybe.
Oh brother. What a bunch of smug, self-important, delusional pansies.
moral arc of history bends towards progress.
I agree. That’s why I favor morality and am against crooked Democrats. There’s been a great surge in productivity under Trump’s policies.
Thanks for the breakdown. It seems like Brin is the loud mouthed asshole who hogged the stage. Larry Page is the real brains behind the company.
I wish I could have the salt mining rights there.
Anti-trust laws were put on the books for a good reason. Even Bernie Sanders pointed out in his book that it was unhealthy for a “Democracy” to have just about all news sources owned by a tiny handful of corporations.
At a regularly scheduled all hands meeting, some Google employees and executives expressed their own personal views in the aftermath of a long and divisive election season. For over 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings. Nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products. To the contrary, our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint."
The co-founder Brin looks like a strung out junkie. We now know he is a far left liberal and that should come as no surprise.
the same history books that decry the Hollywood blacklist of Communist agitators and sympathizers putting propaganda in works and funding seditious activity will not be including this blacklist of conservatives from tech, academia, and media jobs.
That’s a leap...
And swerved into the truth.
They didn’t show up at Congress lasy week I think
Brin is another CIA cutout. Google is a DARPA creation.
“Revenge Of The Nerds”.
Wasn’t he instrumental in the “Arab Spring”?
They’re arrogance and condescension is what causes their blindness. They still think the election is something that needs “correction” thru their brilliant guidance. They don’t get it. The election of Trump *is* the correction.
