George Martin, Daily Mail

  • Footage obtained by Breitbart shows Google leadership discussing the result
  • They were filmed at their first conference of 2016 after the election took place
  • Google co-founder Sergey Brin says he feels 'deeply offended' by the result
  • Brin later says data shows a correlation between 'boredom' and voting for Trump
  • He then goes on to argue that there is a link between 'boredom' and 'fascism'
  • Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, also says there is a lot of 'fear' after the results
  • CFO Ruth Porat appears to break down in tears when discussing the election
  • Porat also instructs the audience to hug one another saying 'we all need a hug' 
  • Senior VP for Global Affairs, Kent Walker, says the company will stop populism
  • Walker says that 'populism could lead to a world war or something catastrophic'
  • Instead Walker says that Google must ensure populism is just 'a blip or hiccup'
  • The video was leaked as Google faces questions from the President over bias
  • Trump tweeted last week that Google was burying Conservative search results 

Leaked video from a Google conference held in the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election shows the company's co-founder comparing Trump voters to 'fascists'.

The footage, obtained by Breitbart, also shows the company's executives vowing to halt the rise of populism and urging employees to console one another after the election result.   

The damaging video pours further doubt onto Google's claims of political impartiality just a few days after it was accused of trying to boost Latino voter turnout to help Hillary Clinton.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin can be seen on stage in front of hundreds of employees saying he was 'deeply offended' by Trump's election and that it 'conflicts with many of Google's values.'

At one point during the conference, Brin talks about the typical mentality of Trump voters.

He argues that those with 'routine jobs' were more likely to vote for Trump than those with 'non-routine' jobs - and said 'boredom' might explain the President's popularity.

'There's actually a lot of historical precedent for boredom being a huge factor in vote choice,' Brin told the crowd.

'And actually in building extremism. We've done a lot of work on extremism that shows a high correlation with boredom.'

4,000 Years Of Price Control

Tablets, said to be 200 years older than the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi ... show that the ancient kingdom of Eshnunna had wage control and price control. The news ought not to have come as a surprise. For the code of Hammurabi itself (unearthed in 1902), which was promulgated earlier than 2000 B.C., fixed prices, wages, interest rates, and fees. This makes price control at least about 4,000 years old. ...

 

Ironically, it is those who now wish to return to this ancient totalitarian device who are fondest of calling themselves “progressives.” They are also fond of saying that those who believe in economic liberty “are living in the nineteenth century.” These controlists have yet to learn that they themselves are still living, as the discoveries in Babylonia attest, in the nineteenth century—B.C.!
