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.'

The Fed vs. the Middle Class

With interest rates flattened [by the Federal Reserve], government zeroes out the future. Abandoned were 80 percent of private defined-benefit pension plans. Public plans faced a similar evisceration in the future. With no acknowledgement, the U.S. government had casually dispossessed the American middle class of its retirement assets and pushed millions of Americans into acute dependency on government programs. ... Government dependency negated the American dream.
