Not long after the mainstream media crowned Joe Biden the “winner” of the 2020 presidential election, the heads of many Big Tech companies began gushing with praise on social media for the faux “president-elect.”
Recognizing that a Biden presidency would likely reverse all the progress made by President Trump in holding the tech giants accountable for mass censorship of conservatives, Silicon Valley could not be more thrilled at the fantasy notion of Biden being installed into the White House in January.
“Unity, empathy, and decency are not characteristics of a bygone era,” wrote Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in a glowing Instagram post. “By voting in record numbers, the American people proved again that our democracy is strong.”
Bezos has consistently butted heads with Trump, who openly criticized the unscrupulous billionaire for taking control of The Washington Post and turning it into an even worse fake news outlet than it was prior. Trump also exposed Bezos for conspiring to exploit the United States Postal Service (USPS) for his own personal gain.
Another celebratory tech overlord who sees a whole lot more dollar signs and jabs in arms under a Biden presidency is billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates, who clearly could not be more thrilled at the prospect of once again calling the shots when it comes to “public health.”
“I look forward to working with the new administration and leaders on both sides of Congress on getting the surging pandemic under control, engaging partners around the world on issues like poverty and climate change, and addressing issues of inequity and opportunity at home,” Gates tweeted.
Brad Smith, the current president of Microsoft, echoed Gates’ sentiments in a blog post calling for bipartisan cooperation on a broad range of issues, including expanded broadband internet access and protecting elections against “cyberattacks.”
“The more bridges we can cross together, the more we likely will find that Americans of all backgrounds in every state and county share far more in common than we currently appreciate,” Smith wrote in his best Hallmark movie impression.
“As we look to the next four years, this should give us not only reason for hope, but cause for optimism.”
As sweet as this is, we do not expect that Smith, Gates or Bezos will be singing these same tunes once the true election outcome is realized (hint: Biden has not been certified in even one state, and many key battleground states are still facing litigation).
This is probably why Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg have not said a word about Biden’s “win” – that, and the fact that both companies are the subject of a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit alleging serious antitrust violations.
Also curiously silent about Biden’s “win” are Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Apple CEO Tim Cook, the former of which is included in the DOJ probe. What do these four major tech heads know that Bezos and the others apparently do not?
Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg did pipe in on Kamala Harris’ “win,” calling her the first woman with darker skin to be selected “vice president.” Michelle Obama has even darker skin, of course, but she was the president’s wife, and there is speculation that she is actually be a he.
“There are times when America takes a big step toward creating a government that reflects the diverse country we are,” Sandberg gushed about Harris. “Today is one of those days.”
