The domestic Left really doesn’t like America or Americans very much.
In fact, it’s quite reasonable to say the Left loathes America and Americans.
In this anti-America hater-ism – the domestic Left has very much in common with some other really AWFUL people.
Speaking of Communist China…
China ain’t a fan of the First Amendment either.
In fact – China is earnestly trying to expand its censorious reach.
In fact – China wants to dominate everyone…and everything.
And who’s bending over backwards to help Communist China challenge American dominance of science – and everything else? And help Communist China censor everyone and everything?
Why…it’s America’s Leftist Big Tech.
Well…Leftist Big Tech can’t have that. So…let the anti-freedom Communist-China-capitulations commence.
And, of course, Apple sold out to Communist China LONG ago.
Microsoft too goes above and beyond.
“Chinese Web monitoring service GreatFire is once again raising objections to the way Microsoft’s Bing operates in China – this time round claiming that it censors heavily within the country, even more so than domestic search engine Baidu.”
Get that? Microsoft is censoring harder…than a Communist Chinese search engine. Excellent.
Microsoft is so aiming to please the Communist Chinese….
“Microsoft Corp denied on Wednesday it was omitting websites from its Bing search engine results for users outside China after a Chinese rights group said the U.S. firm was censoring material the government deems politically sensitive.
“GreatFire.org, a China-based freedom of speech advocacy group, said in a statement on Tuesday that Bing was filtering out both English and Chinese language search results….”
Speaking of Leftist Big Tech censoring in the US: These mega-companies are willing if not eager to censor conservatives…so as to suck-up to Communists-Leftists – because they themselves are Communists-Leftists.
They’ll suck-up censor in China – and here in the US.
Big Tech’s Borg employees are more than happy to work for companies that censor speech. Here – and all over the world. All at the behest of the Communism-Leftism in which they so vociferously believe.
But Big Tech’s Borg employees won’t work for companies – that work for the US Defense Department.
“Google is dropping its bid for a multi-billion dollar Pentagon cloud computing project called JEDI after a spate of employee protests….The decision follows a months-long protest by Google’s workers, who oppose the company profiting from government defense contracts.”
Get that? Big Tech’s employees have zero problem with their companies profiting from doing Communist China’s bidding.
But work for the US military – which has time and again saved the planet from itself? Heck no:
“More than 4,000 employees signed a petition demanding ‘a clear policy stating that neither Google nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology.’ A dozen employees also resigned in protest.
“‘This plan will irreparably damage Google’s brand and its ability to compete for talent,’ the employees wrote.”
But for these idiots – working for a decade-plus FOR THE COMMUNIST CHINESE…doesn’t “damage Google’s brand.”
Is it just Google and its employees? Heck no.
An Open Letter to Microsoft: Don’t Bid on the US Military’s Project JEDI – Signed by Employees of Microsoft:“We joined Microsoft to create a positive impact on people and society, with the expectation that the technologies we build will not cause harm or human suffering….When we decided to work at Microsoft, we were doing so in the hopes of ‘empowering every person on the planet to achieve more,’ not with the intent of ending lives and enhancing lethality.”
Again – these Leftist idiots work for a company that has spent two-plus decades – DOING COMMUNIST CHINA’S BIDDING. The idiots continue:
“For those who say that another company will simply pick up JEDI where Microsoft leaves it, we would ask workers at that company to do the same. A race to the bottom is not an ethical position. Like those who took action at Google, Salesforce, and Amazon, we ask all employees of tech companies to ask how your work will be used, where it will be applied, and act according to your principles.”
Leftist Google buckled to its Leftist employees. Leftist Microsoft’s Leftist employees are looking for a similar buckling – not just from Leftist Microsoft, but every single Leftist Big Tech company.
To not work for the United States military.
After decades of working for Communist China.
Leftists possess way too much self-esteem. Leftists possess way too little self-awareness.
I’m not at all sorry: These people are idiots.
