Sundar Pichai, the chief executive officer of Google, told Congress on Tuesday he’s a “technology optimist” who believes “in people and their ability to use technology to improve their lives.”
He said he’s “incredibly proud” of what Google has done “to empower people around the world.”
Well, totalitarians believe their own lies. Why should Google’s Pichai be any different?
I agree with the principle that private companies have a right to choose their content and customers. However, as leftists they do not support this individual right for society as a whole. They only support it for leftists, like themselves. And then they have the nerve to lie about it.
In fact, Google aggressively undercuts and removes from their website people who advance free market views, while protecting those who support curtailing the First Amendment and Second Amendment. Ditto for Twitter and Facebook. Is this Google’s right? Sure. Under the very principles they work tirelessly to shut down and oppose. These leftist social media companies rely on the very ideas of free markets, private property and the First Amendment that they seek to obliterate with all their intolerant leftism.
That’s the kind of world we’re living in right now.
