Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FBN’s ‘Varney & Company’ To Discuss Google
According to Dhillon:
I represent former Google employees or people who applied for jobs at Google who are conservative or white or male and there is discrimination at Google at ideological viewpoint. Whatever Sundar Pichai’s telling the Congress is simply not true. There is ample evidence with my clients and others. Google suppresses conservative voices on YouTube. They encourage advertisers not to advertise on Breitbart. Google engages in all kinds of other filtering and suppression activities that are highly questionable. That is just on the conservative side, but they are also willing to work hand in hand with the most authoritarian dictatorships in the world such as China and others to customize those nations’ surveillance on their own citizens and enabling human rights violations. This is pretty terrible stuff when you combine the lack of morality with the huge market power.
This isn’t the first time there have been hearings on this. We had hearings in September and earlier. What you saw members of Congress frankly don’t understand social media or the Internet. It is kind of embarrassing for me to see that type of performance. They will read out statements that their staffers wrote for them. They’re all getting paid by Google and Facebook and these big companies through their lobbyist, and so the way things work in Washington is people talk about it then nothing happens. We had conservative administration for two years. They have done absolutely nothing in the Trump Administration to look at antitrust issues, to take action, FTC and FCC, whose job it is to make sure that if a company steals our data, lies to us and misuses it, they’re held accountable. None of that happened so far.
They come and lie to Congress. What Sundar Pichai is saying there is no anti-conservative. It’s a lie. I can’t put it other way. People will nod or ask him questions respectfully as if he has special insight. The reality is like that corporation, like many others, they only answer to the almighty dollar or yuan. There is a big market in China. The Chinese market is much bigger than the European market. They don’t really care that there is dictatorship there where people are being blocked from searching for Nobel Peace Prize or human rights or Dalai Lama, or other important phrases. This is much more dangerous. One more point, recently Google banned a top Chinese dissident from visiting Google’s headquarters in New York in the United States because they were afraid Google might upset China with the Dragonfly thing going on if they allowed it. That is what we’re talking about.
