Today, President Trump called out the tech titans. This rebuke was long overdue, as Silicon Valley is infected with sordid types who will take money from anyone, and if it came down to selling out America for a profit, they would do it. If China owned Silicon Valley and set their guidelines, there would be little difference. The only real difference would be that those speaking conservative opinions would be beaten, whipped, and put in camps instead of just shadow banned, censored, and blocked. There are three areas to explore. My personal experience with Facebook and why I deleted my account completely, Google's algorithms that skew the truth, coupled with what search engine should be used in it's place, and why the First Amendment applies not only to the government, but also to Silicon Valley.
July of 2013 was when I first logged into FB. Having been warned, rightly so, about the garbage that was on FB from my wise and vigilant church, I stayed off. But when my church and I parted ways, due to my tendency to always comply with orders that part way with reason:), I ventured on to FB, to join a site that publicized the solutions to the problem I had just encountered. FB was one huge arena. Very soon, it became apparent that not all ideas, thoughts, and posts were equal. Suddenly, after commenting with conservative opinions, I discovered difficulties with my login. Nonplussed, I tried again, only to discover I had earned my first of many trips to the FB jail, where Americans are sent for re education. We are being trained on how to be good comrades and how we will be punished and dehumanized if we dare state an opinion Big Brother FB does not like. After leaving FB in January of 2015, Trump's election moved me to rejoin in November of 2016, and this last hurrah ended in January of 2018, terminating with the termination of my account in June of 2018. There were massive contradictions. Full blown prostitution ads were tolerated, as were pictures of alluring women who practically had not a stitch of clothing on, but conservaspeak was severely restricted and often banned. In an attempt to give the overzealous FB censors something worthwhile to work on, I reported every last instance I could find of immodest and provocatively dressed women. That way, I could busy them up and they'd be distracted from their Jihad on conservative speech. There were many friends met on FB, but none like those in real life, which talked face to face. In retrospect, Facebook was a near complete waste of time for two and a half years of my life. It doesn't matter how profound one's opinion may be, FB can censor and block you for no reason at all, and is not even in the habit of explaining exact reasons for their crackdowns. Not only does one have to wonder when the tyrants block on FB can happen, if one is a conservative, one also has to deal with algorithm's which stifle and discourage the spread of conservative views, and promote and encourage the spread of liberal nonsense. Facebook seemed to be an excellent example of exactly why the Founders of America were not fans of Democracy. They realized that with lots of uninformed people running around making decisions, bad things nearly always happen. We have this right here on WB, where the 13 liberals, Mufasa, Aaron, Travil the Satanist, Michka, Green, Gregory, Bugs, Bill H., Stone, Opher, Hunter, Kelly, and Logical Man, constantly come to the wrong conclusions on nearly every topic that is introduced. They can't help it, they see as they are.
Moving on to Google. Back in 2008, when I watched CNN and television, read the newspaper, watched YouTube and googled Obama, I was enraptured with Obama. I thought he was the second coming. I didn't vote, but I went to Las Vegas to visit when he gave a speech two days before he was elected. He seemed to be the perfect answer for America. Then, I escaped my liberal bubble, and boy did reality smack me hard. I had to come to the realization that I supported the man who was the most wicked president in American history. That was a very painful understanding. I felt better when I realized at least I recognized my error. There are tens of millions of liberals who still don't, and many of them are far older than my 38 years. Hopefully they find their way out of their delusions sooner, rather than later. Back then, it didn't cross my mind that the results I searched for were being rigged to get me to think and do the things the people who paid Google wanted me to think and do. It's a massive indoctrination effort. Google has a system in place similar to Russian's Siberia. Whereas in Russia, if you opposed the party line, you were liable to be taken 100 miles away, to Siberia, and separated, with Google, whatever you search for, the conservative results are liable to be at least 100 search results deep. Google does this with their algorithms, knowing that the average search hones in on the top 5-20 search results and ignores everything after that. Using this method, a massive re education program is under way even as I type this. To any logical person, Google search results go left. The leftist media is furiously at work as I type this to discredit this and to claim Google is perfectly impartial, when any fool can tell they definitely are not. A recent search of 'Trump' on Google revealed 96% of the news sites that followed in the top 100 were liberal. It's not hard to tell. The reader can find any liberal or conservative and key them into Google. The results will skew towards favoring the liberal every single time. The argument will be made that traffic to the websites and money influences the search results. That is total nonsense, as Breitbart is one of the highest ranked and trafficked political websites in the world, and it rarely shows up on Google searches. The search engines that should be used in Google's place are Brave and DuckDuckGo. Neither spy on users and neither use tricky algorithms to steer users to do and believe what Google and Google's investors want them to do and believe.
Lastly, Trump made an excellent suggestion, quickly jumped on by Larry Kudlow, that Silicon Valley may need to be regulated. The libertarians and liberals are appalled at this, as they look upon this as an assault on the First Amendment and an assault on private companies right to determine their own destiny. But this is different, it would seem. When the tech companies have the power to sway tens of millions of votes and they are engaging in behaviors that suppress speech and can sway elections, the First Amendment applies directly. If we say our government must tolerate free speech, then does it not automatically follow that entities which have the power to shape our government dramatically must also tolerate free speech, or are we willing to admit we are slaves, and that we must submit to the will and dictates of those with money and power?
In conclusion, we have a serious problem. The internet is not the wonderchild it was made out to be. Our nation is far less virtuous and wise than we were in 1993 when the internet was first introduced, and if we do not hurriedly restore the virtue and wisdom we had prior to the internet, the nation we were born into, for those of us born prior to 1980, will be lost forever, never to be regained. The indoctrination with disinformation of tens of millions of Americans cannot occur without severe consequences that are likely irreparable. 70% of all internet usage is for porn. If we fail to speedily restore marriages and the church, the two backbones of the American Revolution, then we Americans will all die in a world far worse than the one in America we were born in. May we profit from the examples of history, and wisely choose. Either we choose life or death, success or failure, glory or shame, good or evil.
