The Creepy Line — The Movie by The Elephant's Child

The Creepy Line is a documentary that reveals the stunning degree to which society is manipulated by Google and Facebook and YouTube, and blows the lid off the remarkably subtle –hence powerful– manner in which they do it.

The Creepy Line is a title taken from the words of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, when during a 2010 interview he explained Google’s code of conduct: “The Google policy on a lot of things is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

However, as Dr. Robert Epstein explains in the film, “Google crosses the creepy line every day.” Containing interviews with Jordan B. Peterson, Peter Schweizer, and others, The Creepy Line offers an explosive look at the meddling and intervening done by Google and Facebook on their supposedly “neutral platforms.” The Creepy Line takes the conversation about data privacy and control further than ever before by examining what Google and Facebook do once they control a user’s data. Offering first-hand accounts, scientific experiments and detailed analysis, The Creepy Line examines what is at risk when these two tech titans have free reign to utilize the public’s most private and personal data.



Google Is Simply a Democrat Party Apparatchik by The Elephant's Child

A leaked video of the weekly all-hands meeting at Google just after the election in 2016 reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay among the company’s leadership, and a determination to fight the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the world.

These weekly meetings are known as “TGIF” meetings  (“Thank God It’s Friday”). It features co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat and CEO Sundar Pichai. You should watch the whole thing in order to get the full context. These individuals preside over a company with unrivaled influence over the flow of information, disparages the motivations of Trump voters and plots ways to use their vast resources to thwart the Trump agenda.

Sergey Brin compares Trump supporters to fascists and extremists, argues that Trump voters were motivated by “boredom” which in the past has led to fascism and communism. And he asks the company to consider what it can do to ensure a “better quality of governance and decision-making.”

CEO Sundar Pichai states that the company will develop machine learning and A.I. to combat what an employee described as “misinformation” shared by “low-information voters”.  All of the speakers assume that every employee is a Democrat and voted for the most corrupt politician to ever run for public office.

Google tried to help Hillary win by driving the Latino vote. John Hinderaker wrote:

I’ve written several times about the fact that the Left has outsourced censorship to the giant tech firms of Silicon Valley. Given that much political debate now takes place on social media, generally thought of as a public space, it is a handy way around the First Amendment. But the role of the giant tech companies goes beyond suppressing conservative voices, to include promoting liberalism and the Democratic Party.

The tech companies all take the same position as the Democratic Party press: sure, we’re all liberals here, but it doesn’t affect what we do! In our business lives, we are scrupulously neutral.

No one has bought that line with regard to the liberal media in a long time, and there is no reason to believe it with regard to Silicon Valley, either. The latest evidence comes from a leaked Google email that found its way onto the Tucker Carlson show last night:

A Google executive’s leaked email reveals efforts to increase Latino turnout prior to the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the executive’s “surprise” at Donald Trump’s performance among Latino voters.

A lawsuit by New Mexico’s Attorney General accuses a popular app maker as well as online ad businesses run by Google and Twitter of using game apps that captivate kids to collect their private data, violating children’s privacy law.

I always thought that Facebook’s urging people to share their family doings and events with their friends (and the rest of the world that uses the internet) would reveal where their kids go to school, where they live, and all sorts of other information that it’s dangerous to make public in today’s world.

If you can bring yourself to watch the whole thing, and you should because this is a very very big deal that is going to effect the future of our country, you will find yourself with all sorts of different emotions. You will want to write to your congressman at once to demand that they regulate the “masters of the universe.” You will wonder how these people can have some valuable technical skills —and yet be so completely lacking in cultural awareness or knowledge of history, What kind of an astonishing monoculture have they created with a huge organization of mind-controlled robots. They don’t even know what the Trump agenda is, nor do they seem to know anything about Hillary’s history as the most corrupt person ever to run for public office. Unthinking acceptance of the Democrat Party line.

Here’s (I think) is the V.P. Kent Walker demonstrating the company’s leadership’s stunning political bias. I’m not familiar with the faces except for Pichai. What should be done? Break them up under the Sherman Antitrust Act? John Hinderaker has suggestions. Other countries, and the EU are not going to accept the level of capturing people’s private information to sell to advertisers. There will be an enormous reaction to these videos.

Be sure you accompany this post with the previous article about China’s new surveillance culture. These are people who have no understanding of a free people and limited government and the Constitution that guides us. They want to be in control so we will do things their way, and not talk back. 242 years of struggle for freedom and these mindless misfits have no understanding whatsoever of what freedom is all about and how fragile it is.

Update — After Breitbart News published this article, a Google spokesperson replied to a request for comment with the following statement:

“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.”

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha    ha.
