During the 2016 election, it seemed like everyone was against Donald Trump and his campaign. The government was spying on them (based on a questionably legal warrant), the media was constantly running pieces insulting the candidate, and according to new information, right-leaning views around the internet were being suppressed or censored.
According to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, an email from inside Google showed that even employees within the monolithic tech giant were working with a pro-Hillary Clinton bias in mind, and actually working to increase voter turnout for Mrs. Clinton. They even lauded their attempts to manipulate Latinos, and their ‘silent donation’ to her campaign. Turns out social media actually did influence the election, but in favor of democrats, not republicans!
Perhaps most interestingly of all, the email was sent on November 9, 2016, the day after the election, and after the United States, and the rest of the world, found out that billionaire real estate mogul Donald J. Trump was the next President of the United States.
The email allegedly came from Eliana Murillo, who was formerly the head of ‘Multicultural Marketing’ at Google.
In the email, Murillo bragged about the efforts Google put forward to ensure higher turnout for Hispanic populations in the 2016 election.
Through her email, she stated that she knew Arizona was a “key state for ‘us,’” and she boasted about how the company used its power to ensure that millions of people saw various trending hashtags and ‘social media impressions’ that were designed to influence the behavior of voters in advance of and during, the election.
The email even described that assistance as a “silent donation.”
The senior employee for one of the most powerful companies on the internet also talked about how the company had created advertisements to help promote the rides from Voto Latino, and generally made it clear that she, and Google, were working to support the Clinton campaign and pushing for her to win the presidency.
Perhaps, most interesting of all in the email, is that while she was happy about her attempts to get out the ‘Latino vote,’ she “never anticipated” that 29% of them would vote for President Trump, rather than for the leftist candidate.
Her email concluded with a request that ‘Googlers’ show the Hispanic population among them a smile, because, in her words, they are “probably hurting right now.”
She also asked for “thoughts and prayers” for these employees and their families.
The email, which was headlined “Election results and the Latino vote” almost seemed proud of the fact that there was a seemingly one-sided force within the large tech company trying to involve the organization in politics.
It also makes President Trump’s victory all the more impressive.
Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State and FLOTUS, had so many large powers working in her favor.
The Democrat Party and CNN came together to ensure she would perform well in the primary against Bernie Sanders, who turned out to be her only serious competition.
The mainstream media, in general, were on her side after the primary, constantly showing her in a favorable light while mocking or insulting Donald Trump and his campaign.
Even the federal government seemed to be pulling for her to win.
The idea that Google would support a leftist candidate is hardly surprising to many people, given their reaction to James Damore and the general left-leaning environment that Silicon Valley and most of its businesses operate in.
However, it seems that President Trump’s ability to win, in spite of all these concentrated efforts against his campaign, stands as a true testament to his electioneering, and to the idea that many citizens feel the democrats don’t care about, or represent them.
Most people believe that Google, YouTube, and other internet companies, including Twitter and Facebook, will be interfering with the 2018 midterm elections, whether they do so by censoring popular conservative viewpoints and pundits or by giving preferential treatment to leftists.
