What do you do when you’re the world’s most powerful Internet and technology company and someone just exposed you for nefarious, and possibly illegal, behavior?
You do what tyrants, thugs, dictators, and authoritarians have done for centuries: You get rid of the evidence.
In the 21st century, that can be accomplished by simply censoring the content — making it unavailable on your near-monopoly search platform, especially when that video exposes your company for…censorship.
On Monday, investigative media organization Project Veritas released an undercover video featuring a Google “insider” whistleblower in which he/she provided details about the company that should make all Americans nervous. The same video featured actual Google employees substantiating what the whistleblower was saying.
“They’re not an objective source of information. They’re a highly biased political machine that is bent on never letting somebody like Donald Trump to come to power again,” the whistleblower can be heard saying in the video.
“The report includes undercover footage featuring a top Google executive, Jen Gennai, discussing how Google might prevent an electoral outcome like 2016 from happening again,” says Breitbart.com.
So, what does a media/tech/Internet giant do when caught red-handed engaging in, and plotting to engage in, censorship?
Engage in more censorship.
As noted by Project Veritas in a Tuesday update: “[Google-owned] YouTube has REMOVED the video from their platform.”

The video is still available on the Project Veritas website, and we have it on Brighteon.com as well (see below). But it makes perfect sense that Google would censor a video expose focusing on how the company censors political content and ideas about political parties and presidents it doesn’t like.
That not only tells you a lot about the people Google hires but the mindset the company has in the first place when looking for executives to hire and/or promote into positions where they can act as speech Nazis.
The Project Veritas team really got some bombshell admissions from Google employees and executives, including this (from the video), in which a top employee, Jen Gennai, says:
Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.
The latest video substantiates earlier reports about Google’s anti-conservative, anti-Trump bias, Breitbart News reports. Earlier this year, the site notes, onetime Google software engineer Mike Wacker released emails that appear to show a manager at Google told a subordinate the company must stop “fake news” and “hate speech” because “that’s how Trump won.”
Also, in 2018 the news site published confidential video footage from inside the tech giant showing Kent Walker, the chief of global affairs, claiming he wanted to make the so-called ‘populist-nationalist’ movement that POTUS Trump embodies a one-time “blip” or “hiccup” in American history (good luck with that, based on recent reliable polling and the president’s fundraising prowess).
Not only that, but scientific research indicates that Google and another tech giant, Facebook, “absolutely do” have the power to change elections because of the tremendous influence and power they have over news feeds, for instance — which, of course, they are censoring to filter out any pro-Trump, conservative information. (Related: Yes, Facebook’s algorithm change was designed to rob you of conservative voices.)
“This is the third tech insider who has bravely stepped forward to expose the secrets of Silicon Valley. These new documents, supported by undercover video, raise questions of Google’s neutrality and the role they see themselves fulfilling in the 2020 elections,” Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said on Monday.
We don’t expect this to be the last we hear about Google bias. The question now is, when will the Trump administration respond with sanctions?
