What Google Listed as the Ideology of the California Republican Party is Both Shameful and Offensive

No bias here, right?

Published

Tech giant Google has found themselves in some serious hot water after it was discovered that they had listed Nazism as the official ideology of the California Republican Party.

Everyone sort of deserves the benefit of the doubt, but given the propensity for liberals — and Google is without a doubt on the left — to call folks on the right “Nazis,” it strains credulity to call this little fiasco a complete and total accident. Though anything is possible.

The error, which was first spotted by political strategist Eric Wilson, showed “Nazism” alongside other ideologies such as “Conservatism,” “Market liberalism,” “Fiscal conservatism,” and “Green conservatism.”

The error showed up in Google’s Knowledge Panel, which pulls information from various sources from across the web, including Wikipedia.

The error has since been fixed, but not before House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., slammed the company over the error.

A Google spokesperson talked with Fox News and gave the following statement about the fiasco:

“This was not the result of any manual change by anyone at Google. We don’t bias our search results toward any political party. Sometimes people vandalize public information sources, like Wikipedia, which can impact the information that appears in search.”

“We have systems in place that catch vandalism before it impacts search results, but occasionally errors get through, and that’s what happened here. This would have been fixed systematically once we processed the removal from Wikipedia, but when we noticed the vandalism we worked quickly to accelerate this process to remove the erroneous information.”

Now, this all just seems a little fishy, wouldn’t you agree?

For months now, one of the big discussion points among conservatives has been the censorship of conservative content creators on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Now you have this happening over at Google.

Certainly seems that someone, somewhere — namely the higher echelon of the tech industry — has it out for conservatives and wants to remove the ability these folks have to express their ideas, effectively silencing the resistance to the widespread cancer of progressivism.

Beliefs were meant to be hashed out on the battlefield of ideas, with no one view being completely silenced. Let’s hope we return to that idea before we lose even more of our freedom.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
