Google’s lies exposed

Jan 18, 2019

Proof leaked out that Google was changing search results manually to favor Democratic politicians and positions. This is a huge breach of trust that even includes false testimony from Google’s CEO to Congress! Act now to stop this Silicon Valley censorship. - Mat

For years, Google claimed it was politically neutral. But now evidence proves that was a lie. Google has been changing the results of political searches and warping their rankings to display links from liberal perspectives first and burying those from conservatives.

Here is a small list of things for which Google had changed the search results:

  • Abortion
  • The Irish abortion referendum
  • Anti-constitutional gun rights activist David Hogg
  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
  • the Strasbourg terrorist attack, and more

One Google staff member said, “We have tons of white- and blacklists that humans manually curate,” while hoping that “this isn’t surprising or particularly controversial.”

Silicon Valley has done enough pushing of their radical liberal views down Americans’ throats. Now is the time to stand up to it and demand that Google respect our First Amendment protections and take a neutral stance on political issues. Take a moment right now to sign Liberty Counsel Action’s petition urging Congress to punish the company for false testimony and establish standards that will protect free speech.

Google has repeatedly (and falsely) tried to hide its bias against conservatives, even in testimony before Congress last month.
In a before-and-after comparison on YouTube results, the search engine manually pushed conservative views off the first page of results. When a liberal reporter complained to Google about pro-life videos being included in the search results, that same day the company manually changed their results to only included a pro-abortion viewpoint in the whole first page! Even after being exposed, the company still lists videos just from Planned Parenthood as six of the top ten. There are also a few liberal BuzzFeed videos and even a video to Planned Parenthood’s political action group! Only one video is from a pro-life perspective, and it is ranked ninth.

This evidence stands in stark contrast to the following assurances from Google that we now know are blatantly false:

    • “We don’t manually intervene...”
    • “Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology... we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.”
    • “We build or operate our products... with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint.”

These statements are simply lies and more lies!

Help Liberty Counsel Action hold their feet to the fire! Sign a petition to Congress to demand that tech giants stop censoring and hiding conservative viewpoints.

Liberty Counsel Action has repeatedly been under fire from Google and other tech giants for our conservative beliefs. Their censorship and attempts to hide the truth are hobbling our efforts to get the word out to our partners. We sometimes have to try two or three times to get our messages to you through these tech giants’ walls. But NOW is the time to push hard for our freedom of speech, before we lose it completely. Last year Liberty Counsel Action drafted legislation and lobbied the U.S. Senate to restore freedom of speech to the Internet. Will you partner with us to hold these tech giants accountable?

I am excited to be involved in this battle for free speech and to have you on our team!

P.S. Google is hoping to silence and delete conservatives and our viewpoints. We can’t let them get away with blatant lies hiding their liberal political agenda! Sign our petition to Congress to hold them accountable.
