Calling all patriots!

It’s time to fight back against Google, Facebook and Twitter.

These applications have undoubtedly become unapologetic propaganda arms for the democrats.

They even stooped to trying to influence the election…, which they did.

But we don’t have to be bound to them.

Their disgusting behavior is not a fate we have to accept.

This is not OK.   

It’s time for people who value their freedom, along with their First Amendment rights, to ditch these anti-American, social media manipulators for some much better options.

I wonder what the reaction would be on Wall Street if each of these applications lost million users within a couple of months?

I’m not sure, but I’d sure like the chance to find out!  

I say let the liberals censor each other as much as they want.

Let them continue to propagate their lies to each other to their heart’s content.

But me, I’m checking out.

I’ve been put in “Facebook jail” and censored for the last time.

I refuse to let them and their armies of little Nazis impose their censorship, their “fact checking” and “community values” and “community standards” on my voice any longer.

We are dangerously close to the type of media control we see in Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, etc., with our own “deep state” controlled media and the recent social media censorship. 

   

How many times have you wished there were conservative alternatives to these fascist organizations?

Well, the good news is there are!

Instead of Google, try using 4conservative.com or 4search.com.

And instead of Twitter or Facebook, try using Parler.com.

According to Chris Ciacciaof FOXBusiness, “In the wake of the presidential election, the social media app Parler topped Apple’s App Store for the first time over the weekend.”

“In an email to FOX Business, research firm Apptopia said downloads for the ‘non-biased, free speech’ platform topped 310,000 over the past week, with the peak starting on Nov. 6. In the week prior, the app had been downloaded just over 150,000 times.”

“Earlier this month, Parler CEO John Matze criticized what he described as Twitter and Facebook censorship surrounding the election, saying that the companies had ‘gone too far.”  He added that his app was ‘free of editorial bullies trying to tell you what to think.’”

The sooner we free ourselves from Google, Facebook and Twitter, the better we’ll feel, and the better off we’ll all be.

The next thing you know they’ll be recording our phone conversations and monitoring those for unacceptable speech.

Oh wait…, I forgot they already do record our conversations!

They just haven’t gotten to the point where we receive warnings in the mail or something about our unacceptable speech which they have detected!

Just wait…, it’s coming folks.

It’s coming.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

Please don’t feed the RINOs!

And by RINOs I mean Republicans In Name Only!

Leading up to the 2020 presidential election, we have seen many supposed republicans and collections of supposed republicans choosing to support Lyin’ Joe Biden instead of President Trump.  

The democrats feel, for some unknown reason, that this will influence other “republicans” to switch their support to Lyin’ Joe Biden, or somehow delegitimize President Trump.

What these losers are failing to remember is, President Trump won the election in 2016 despite the democrats, despite being attacked by the RINOs, despite having no support from establishment republicans, and despite the liberal propaganda news media.  

So, when these 2020 RINOs and establishment republicans try the same old tricks, like back in 2016, please excuse Trump supporters if they aren’t impressed.

Not only aren’t we impressed, we are additionally motivated to support our president!

Here’s the latest example of a RINO who thinks their “coming out of the democrat closet” is going to affect President Trump’s support in any way at all.   

In her own words for Fox News, Susan Molinari, explains, “Why Joe Biden has the support of this former Republican congresswoman [from New York].”

“It’s never been more clear that we need real leadership,” she adds.  

And Lyin’ Joe Biden is your idea of a real leader?!

Ugh.

“I’m a third-generation Republican officeholder and proud of it. I served in the U.S. Congress for five terms; I was elected vice chairwoman of the Republican Conference; and I delivered the keynote address at the 1996 Republican National Convention. And I’m here to tell you why I’m voting for Joe Biden.”

Let me guess…, because you secretly hate America?

Because you enjoy seeing unchallenged riots and violence in our streets?

Because you yearn for good old days when all of our jobs were being shipped overseas?

Because you liked it better when the American people were kept in the dark and the deep state was allowed to do anything they wanted?

Because you liked it better when middle eastern countries could hold us hostage for their oil?

Because you liked it better when China raped us annually because of our prior treasonous trade deals?  

Because you want to take away all of our guns so we are helpless against criminals and your desired socialist/communist future government?  

Am I getting warm?   

Before we continue with Molinari’s disgusting coming out party, I’d also like to point out that she has conveniently failed to mention a few things on her distinguished resume.

After retiring from Congress in 1997, Molinari became a co-host on “CBS This Morning.”

Then, after a stint as a lobbyist on her own, a profession that ranks even lower than being an ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer, Molinari joined the Washington Group in 2001, becoming the lobbying firm’s president and chief executive.

Wow, she must have been a particularly good influence peddler!

Now, after nearly seven years at Google, Susan Molinari is stepping aside as the internet giant’s VP of public policy for the Americas and head of its Washington, D.C. office.

Yes, that’s the same Google that has been meddling in the election, impeding free speech, and censoring information that doesn’t conform to its liberal agenda.

According to Steven Overly, of The Politico Media Company, “Google has also been ensnarled in controversy involving work for the Defense Department. The company said earlier this year it would let a contract to provide artificial intelligence technology to the Pentagon expire in 2019 after employees raised concerns about their work being used by the military. Critics pounced on the company’s decision as unpatriotic.”

“In June, Google hired Karan Bhatia, a former George W. Bush administration official and policy chief at GE [and another RINO] to head its global policy team from Washington. He will oversee Molinari’s replacement.”

“Google says Molinari will stay at the company as a senior adviser to ‘build relationships externally’ with members of Congress, political parties and state representatives.”

Translation: Molinari will stay at Google in hopes of her being able to influence members of Congress, political parties and state representatives, regarding Google’s upcoming legal and legislative battles with Congress.  

“Kent Walker, whom Google promoted in July to senior vice president of global affairs, praised Molinari in a statement as a ‘passionate leader’ who has ‘brought extraordinary experience and political judgement to her work.’”

Translation: Susan Molinari has been a good little RINO.

“The company [Google] has also found itself in Republicans’ cross-hairs over accusations that its liberal-leaning workforce suppresses conservative viewpoints in its search results.”

“President Donald Trump tweeted in August that Google’s news search was ‘RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD’ because it served up news outlets like CNN in its top results.”

‘“Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!’ Trump continued.”

Okay…, now I think we have a clearer picture of Susan Molinari’s track record.

Now let’s see the rest of what she has to say.

Molinari continues by saying, “The COVID-19 pandemic has killed over 222,000 Americans, infected over 8 million fellow citizens, and decimated our economy. Yet, President Trump continues to deny the seriousness of COVID-19.”

Really? 

President Trump denies the seriousness of COVID-19”

There’s the first lie.

“He knowingly and willfully lied to us at the beginning of this crisis, and he continues to do so now as he claims we are ‘rounding the corner.’ He has no plan to effectively contain the virus. He dismisses our public health experts and scientists as ‘idiots.’ And even after hosting a super spreader event at the White House, he tells us we shouldn’t let it control our lives.”

This is a lot to process, Susan.

Just let me say I think most reasonable people understand we can’t control or “contain” the virus, and that “we shouldn’t let it control our lives.”

“This behavior defies logic, and worse, it is costing lives and livelihoods in every corner of our country.”

Now, are you referring to the behavior of your friends, the democrat mayors and governors, or the behavior of President Trump?     

“I’ve worked with Joe Biden in Congress. He is a good man, and he’s what our nation needs during this time of crisis. He’s honest, he’s compassionate, and he values each of us.”

Excuse me, Susan…, I think I just threw up in my mouth.

Please give me a minute…

I would say we have lies two, three, four, five and six right there.  

Okay…, proceed.  

“During our time serving in Congress together, I saw Biden countless times listening to those around him when others left the room and standing up for those who needed a voice when no one else was paying attention. From authoring the Violence Against Women Act to standing up for human rights around the world, Joe Biden is a champion for everyone.”

Even all of us “chumps?”

“And Joe knows what we have to do to get through this crisis. He has a plan to contain COVID-19 and take steps that should have been taken months ago, including providing free testing and treatment and ensuring personal protective equipment and other supplies are available for all.”

I’ve heard about Biden’s mysterious “plan to contain COVID-19,” which includes “providing free testing and treatment and ensuring personal protective equipment and other supplies are available for all,” which is already happening and has been happening. So, I’m unclear about what else he would plan on doing.

“The Joe I know won’t just be a president for Democrats. He will be an American president.”

“Joe will listen to the experts, follow the science, and be honest with the American people so that we can safely reopen our schools and get back to our jobs. Our economy will never recover until we get this virus under control.”

In fact, Lyin’ Joe Biden has the best “expert” of all in his son, Hunter, who is “the smartest guy” Joe knows.  So, he’s got that going for him.    

“While I know it might not be easy for Republicans to vote for a Democrat, I promise you this: the Joe I know won’t just be a president for Democrats. He will be an American president.”

Didn’t we already hear that lie? 

That must be extra special lie!

“He will work with both parties for all of us – even those who don’t support him – to get us through this crisis, recover and build our country and our economy back better.”

And here we have lies seven, eight and nine.

“That’s why Republicans from across the country are coming together in support of this ticket.”

That’s why RINOs from across the country are coming together in support of this ticket, you mean.

“From Cindy McCain and John Kasich to Colin Powell and more than 70 national security officials, there is strong GOP support for Joe Biden in this election.”

Wow…, it’s a veritable RINO who’s who!

“We have so much work to do as a country, and we’ll never get there divided.”

And we all know the democrats would NEVER dream of trying to divide the American people by calling half of our country “racists,” “xenophobes,” “ignorant hicks,” “chumps,” and so on and so forth.   

If you don’t believe me, ask ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter!  

“We have to come together, not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans to rebuild our nation and bring people together.”

Translation: We need to silence the conservatives for once and for all so that all of us enlightened liberals can proceed with ruining America without delay.

Google is suppressing access to my website, especially those users searching within the United States, and I could really use your help.

I mentioned this censorship in a prior blog on July 22, 2020, titled, “Google is a gaggle of fascists.”

https://mrericksonrules.wordpress.com/2020/07/22/google-is-a-gaggle-of-fascists/

Again…, please spread the word about MrEricksonules.com.

Thank you for all of your continued support.

We the people with American bald eagle and flag.

 

Google is a gaggle of fascists.

As just a reminder, fascism is a form of authoritarianism characterized by forcible suppression of the opposition, as well as having a desire to control society and the economy.

You be the judge if Google is operating from a fascist platform or not.

Dan Gainor, of TechWatch, reports for Fox News, “If you wanted an example of the worst abuses of Big Tech and leftist journalism, Google and NBC teamed up this week to deliver one.”

agoogle 2

“NBC and Google try to censor [are censoring] conservative websites, endangering free expression.”

agoogle 3

“An openly leftist NBC staffer based in the United Kingdom worked hand-in-hand with a foreign advocacy group to attack two conservative news organizations in the United States. And Google did its best to help them.”

“NBC reporter Adele-Momoko Fraser, employed at the scary-sounding ‘Verification Center,’ worked with the Center for Countering Digital Hate [CCDH]. CCDH is a British operation that claims it ‘seeks to disrupt the architecture of online hate and misinformation.’ ​Together, they tried to financially ruin The Federalist and ZeroHedge.”

agoogle 1

“Fraser and CCDH tried to silence their political opponents with a presidential election less than five months away.  Remember all the media hype about foreign involvement in our elections?  In fact, the anti-Trump media never really cared. They just wanted foreign involvement on their side.”

“Initially, NBC News claimed that Google had ‘banned’ The Federalist and ZeroHedge from its ad platform for the crime of ‘pushing unsubstantiated claims’ about Black Lives Matter.”

Were these “claims” “unsubstantiated” or incompatible with their narrative?

“NBC cited a Google spokesperson as saying the company has policies that ‘explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing.’”

I would say they are prohibiting content that may be derogatory, but which are simply stating the truth.

“An article on the NBC website went to claim that both sites had been demonetized, but Google backed off its attacks on The Federalist. For now.”

“The ‘reporter’ was thrilled and thanked CCDH and its sister group ‘for their hard work and collaboration [I would use the word “complicitness”].’ Just in case you thought she was neutral, she even added the Black Lives Matter hashtag. She later deleted that, but the Internet is forever. Just like her bias.”

agoogle 10

“She wasn’t the only one celebrating. Imran Ahmed, CCDH founder and CEO, was ‘delighted’ and tweeted out the article, calling it his organization’s ‘biggest win ever.’”

“CCDH isn’t done by a long shot. The group is ‘calling on advertisers to blacklist these 10, U.S-based, racist Fake News sites.’ The list includes The Federalist and ZeroHedge, along with Breitbart, American Thinker and WND. If leftists like Ahmed have their way, conservatives won’t be allowed to post anywhere online.”

agoogle 5

Who does Google think it is?

Google doesn’t control the internet…, they are merely a search engine utilizing the web.

“Remember that the next time so-called journalism professionals whine about press freedom. Or even complain about the Hollywood blacklist. Leftists now are the new McCarthyites.”

A “McCarthyite” is someone who employs practices that endorses the use of unfair allegations and investigations.

McCarthyism was a vociferous campaign against alleged communists in the US government and other institutions carried out under Senator Joseph McCarthy in the period 1950–54. Many of the accused were blacklisted or lost their jobs, although most did not in fact belong to the Communist Party.”

Today’s “McCarthyite” attacks those who dare to disagree with their Marxist/socialist/communist platform.

“The censorship caused an uproar, especially since it landed right in the middle of both federal and congressional debate about reining in the power of Big Tech companies.”

agoogle 4

“Google wasn’t subtle. It showed the world that it has too much control over our lives and that the most powerful company on Earth is also an enemy of the very freedoms that protect it.”

Well said.

agoogle 13

“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was one of several members of Congress to criticize Google. He sent a letter to the company saying its actions raised ‘serious concerns that Google is abusing its monopoly power in an effort to censor political speech with which it disagrees.’”

It is my belief that MrEricksonRules.com has been a victim of this censorship as well.

Those of you familiar with my site can understand Google wanting to censor me.

I deal with trumpeting the truth, and exposing those who attempt to hide and pervert it.

We the people with American bald eagle and flag.

Based on the statistics provided by my website provider, it is pretty obvious that web searches have been directed away from my website, especially within the US, even though I pay Google to help promote my website!

This would constitute fraud as well as censorship, wouldn’t it?

I have contacted Google Ads regarding this situation, but have not received any communication back as of yet.

What a surprise.

agoogle 11

Isn’t it time to deal with this monopoly?

The government broke up “The” phone company at one point.

The only problem is that many of our politicians like Google being able to censor the internet in their favor, even though it is contrary to our Constitutional rights.

“The co-founders of The Federalist, Ben Domenech and Sean Davis, wrote in The Wall Street Journal: ‘The episode illustrates how dangerous the combination of partisan media and monopolistic tech companies is to America.’”

“They couldn’t be more right. Since this incident occurred, Facebook took down some ads for President Trump on its site, once more bowing to the leftists inside and outside its company.”

“It was also revealed that Twitter had tried to pressure Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and threatened to shut down his account ‘permanently.’”

“Cotton had gotten in trouble with Twitter over the use of the words ‘No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.’ If America is to survive as a free nation, then we might modify Cotton’s statement: ‘No quarter for censorship.’”

How dare he oppose “insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters!”

agoogle 14

“In practical terms, that means Big Tech and its leftist activist buddies in the news media have made it clear they don’t believe in free speech or free press for any that oppose them. They have made it clear they don’t want a free election this year or any time after. They have made it clear they are at war with the very nation that protects the freedoms they have used to become so powerful.”

agoogle 6

“So now the big question: Are we going to let them get away with it?”

If Sleepy Joe wins in November, this will just become standard operating procedure.

Surprise, surprise, surprise…, Google has a liberal bias!

No kidding!

That’s really not a surprise or “news” to any of us who pay attention.

It’s old news, but still news that we need to stay on top of.

It goes beyond “bias,” however.

The question is, why do these people (liberals) feel it’s okay to cheat, unfairly influence, and deceive others in order to help their anti-American cause?

bias 3

Dr. Robert Epstein recently appeared on the show “Life, Liberty & Levin,” which is a show on FOX, hosted by Mark Levin.

bias 1

bias 2

Based on a study he conducted, he claims Google reflected a “very dramatic bias” in 2016 election search results on their search engine.

According to Dr. Epstein, “Google offered search results during the 2016 election season that manipulated voters in Hillary Clinton’s favor.”

bias 7

“The study looked into ‘politically oriented searches’ from a ‘diverse group of American voters,’ Epstein said in the interview.

“In 2016, I set up the first-ever monitoring system that allowed me to look over the shoulders of a diverse group of American voters — there were 95 people in 24 states,” he said.

“I looked at politically oriented searches that these people were conducting on Google, Bing and Yahoo. I was able to preserve more than 13,000 searches and 98,000 web pages, and I found very dramatic bias in Google’s search results… favoring Hillary Clinton — whom I supported strongly.”

So all of this is coming from a former Hillary Clinton supporter on top of it.

bias 5

I actually experienced some crazy search results myself on Google.

I was doing some research for an article on Bill Clinton’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein and the whole “Pedophile Island” thing.

I entered “Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein” for my search, as I was looking to find a few pictures of the two.

To my amazement the first picture, the very first picture, that came up was a picture of Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein!

bias 10

Hmmm?

Now how could that happen unless Google programmers tied “Donald Trump” to any search that was conducted regarding Jeffrey Epstein?

The fact is that the Google search engine will VERY rarely direct you to any article or resource of a positive nature regarding President Trump.

bias 8

In an effort to supposedly address this internal bias, Google has come out with some new “community guideline,” aimed at limiting political talk among its employees.”

Ha!

Ya…, that’ll take care of the problem.

“That level of bias was sufficient, I calculated, to have shifted over time somewhere between 2.6 and 10.4 million votes to Hillary without anyone knowing that this had occurred,” Dr. Epstein continued.

Mark Levin asked Epstein how such bias and influence could be credited to Google and their search suggestions and results?

Epstein replied that, “People searching Google for politically relevant or election-related information will see search suggestions pop up as they type, and also see a number of top searches on the first page of their results.”

bias 9

“We now know that those search suggestions have a very, very powerful effect on people and that they alone can shift opinions and votes dramatically and then search results appear below,” he added.

After hearing about Epstein’s research and report, President Trump tweeted, “Report just out! Google manipulated from the 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!”

bias 4

I couldn’t agree with you more, Mr. President.

Your victory was bigger than anyone could ever imagine.

And believe me…, the democrats are bound and determined to beat you in 2020 AT ALL COSTS…, and I mean AT ALL COSTS.

Media manipulation.

Polling manipulation.

Manufactured votes.

Fraudulent votes.

Vote obstruction.

We’re going to see it all at rates that are beyond comparison to prior elections.

Hold onto your hats my friends!

Like the democrats like to say, “Let’s get out there and vote early and vote often!”

bias 11

What does it mean to be “patriotic?”

GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Holds Campaign Rally In Tampa, Florida

patriotic 4

I’m sure you have a good idea what it means to be “patriotic,” but what about “Google?”

You know…, “Google,” the internet search engine that basically everyone on the planet uses.

The “Google” that claims it has no liberal tilt to it.

Okay…, well, let’s “Google” the word “patriotic.”

patriotic 7

If you “Google” the word “patriotic,” this is what you get:

pa·tri·ot·ic

/ˌpātrēˈädik/

adjective

Having or expressing devotion to and vigorous support for one’s country.

“Today’s game will be played before a fiercely patriotic crowd.”

synonyms: nationalist, nationalistic, loyalist, loyal; chauvinistic, jingoistic, jingo, flag-waving, isolationist, xenophobic

antonyms: traitorous

 

Hmmm.  Okay…, I was right there with ‘ya Google, until I got to the synonyms “chauvinistic,” “jingoistic,” “isolationist,” and “xenophobic.”

Not to mention that “flag-waving” appears to have taken on some kind of negative connotation.

“Synonyms” are supposed to be words that “mean the same” or “nearly the same,” right?

I do believe that “Google,” the company that claims it has no liberal tilt to it, is trying to change the meaning of the word “patriotic” right before our very eyes!

It would seem that being a patriot, according to Google, has now become something negative…, something undesirable.

Nike and Colin Kaepernick would definitely go along with this new meaning…, as would Facebook, Hollywood in general, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news, mainstream media,” most liberals, and most democrats everywhere.

patriotic 2

So, “patriotic” means the same as “chauvinistic?”

chau·vin·is·tic

/ˌSHōvəˈnistik/

adjective

Feeling or displaying aggressive or exaggerated patriotism.

Displaying excessive or prejudiced support for one’s own cause, group, or sex.

 

“Aggressive patriotism?”

“Exaggerated patriotism?”

“Displaying excessive or prejudiced support?”

This is the start of equating “patriots” with racists.

 

Then we have “jingoistic.”

“Jingoistic?”

Never heard of it.

jin·go·is·tic

/ˈˌjiNGɡōˈistik/

adjectiveDEROGATORY

Characterized by extreme patriotism, especially in the form of aggressive or warlike foreign policy.

“jingoistic propaganda”

 

“Extreme patriotism?”

“Aggressive or warlike foreign policy?”

“Propaganda?”

This is the start of equating “patriots” with Nazis.

 

Next we have “xenophobic.”

This is also a term that what little known and little used up until the last year or so.

 

xen·o·pho·bic

/zenəˈfōbik,ˌzēnəˈfōbik/

adjective

Having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries.

“The xenophobic undertones of this argument.”

synonyms: racist, racialist, ethnocentric, ethnocentrist; nationalist, nationalistic, jingoistic, jingo, isolationist; prejudiced, intolerant, bigoted, parochial, insular

 

“Having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries?”

“Racist, ethnocentric, prejudiced, intolerant, bigoted?”

Do you see where they are going with all of this?

 

Mark my words…, before you know it, being patriotic will be akin to being in the Ku Klux Klan.

patriotic 6

Waving or displaying the American flag will be considered the same thing as wearing a red MAGA hat.

patriotic 5

If you remember, Google listed the only antonym for “patriotic” as “traitorous.”

Well, there you go Google.

patriotic 8

By your own definition…, if you’re labeling all of us red blooded, flag waving, national anthem singing Americans as “patriots,” then liberals would by choice be the opposite…, or “traitorous.”

Now that I’d tend to agree with!

USA! USA! USA!

Thank God we have “Google” around to be our social conscience (I’m being very sarcastic by the way).   

(Please refer to my two previous blogs regarding our friends at “Google,” dated September 24, 2018 and September 17, 2018 for a little background.)

When I “google” “#METOO,” why do I get a program error?

When I “goggle” “sexual misconduct at Google,” why does it come back saying, “Did you mean: sexual misconduct at the GOP?”

A couple of weeks ago, The (failing) New York Times detailed the alleged misconduct of senior executives, as well as Google’s admission that it fired 48 people for sexual harassment over the past two years.

What’s going on over there!?  And who are these people?

Did they hire Harvey Weinstein while we weren’t looking?  How about Matt Lauer?

Do they have a hiring pipeline of Penn State alumnae?  Michigan State?  Former US Olympic Gymnastic coaches?

Google employees abandoned their desks and staged a 10 minute walkout, at Google office all over the world, in protest of the company’s handling of sexual misconduct allegations.

The campaign has been dubbed “The Google Walkout For Real Change,” and the first walkouts occurred at their offices in Singapore, Zürich, Switzerland and London.

Google is headquartered in “whacky” California, of course, and has 78 offices in the US and around the world (Do they really need that many offices to run a search engine?).

Anyway, campaign organizers have said they were “disgusted” by the details of The New York Times report.  They said “it is an example of a culture of complicity, dismissiveness, and support for perpetrators in the face of sexual harassment, misconduct, and abuse of power.”

These are pretty harsh and damning allegations!

Not at Google!  Say it ain’t so!

Not at such a forward thinking, thoughtful, liberal, gender and racially considerate company like Google!

Google has always been considered “cutting edge” regarding company culture and work environment.  Google was considered revolutionary for maximizing a flexible working atmosphere for improved productivity.  Rubber exercise balls used for office chairs, cubicle free offices, wooden doors held by saw horses acting as desks, multicolored lava lamps and dogs roaming the halls led to a “comfortable” work place.  This environment proved to be highly effective in increasing the creative output of its employees.

Google hired a “company chef,” who introduced the staff to health conscious and energy boosting recipes. There were weekly roller hockey games in the parking lot and weekly “TGIF meetings.”  The free and informal atmosphere supposedly led to an easier exchange of ideas.

The free and informal atmosphere has apparently led to more than just an easier exchange of ideas!

Google employees have a list of five demands for change.  Here they are in the campaign’s own words:

An end to Forced Arbitration in cases of harassment and discrimination for all current and future employees.

A commitment to end pay and opportunity inequity.

A publicly disclosed sexual harassment transparency report.

A clear, uniform, globally inclusive process for reporting sexual misconduct safely and anonymously.

Elevate the Chief Diversity Officer to answer directly to the CEO and make recommendations directly to the Board of Directors.  Appoint an Employee Rep to the Board.

I’m really surprised by these demands…, not because they are so “over the top,” but because they are such “no brainers.”

How can a company be so “cutting edge” on one hand and anchored in the Middle Ages on the other?

Do they have an “HR” department at Google?  I assume they do.  If so, what have they been doing?  Were they all too busy bouncing around on their rubber exercise balls?

Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, said he and management support the protest and are listening to staff.

Isn’t that nice?!

He also said, “We let ‘Googlers’ know that we are aware of the activities planned for Thursday and that employees will have the support they need if they wish to participate.”

Isn’t that nice again?!

“Employees have raised constructive ideas for how we can improve our policies and our processes going forward.  We are taking in all their feedback so we can turn these ideas into action.”

Here are some of their constructive ideas (leaked exclusively to MrEricksonRules.com) to improve the company’s policies:

“Executives should be required to at least throw a blanket on top of their desk before throwing employees on them and having their way with them.”

“Executives should be required to follow through with promised increases in pay and/or promotions after “services” have been officially rendered.”

“Executives should be required to leave their office door unlocked before choosing to chase their secretaries around the office, in an effort to demonstrate fairness, and the potential opportunity for the secretary to escape.”

These “constructive ideas” all seem quite reasonable, don’t they?

Sundar Pichai and Larry Page, the CEO of Google’s parent company Alphabet, both apologized to staff last week for the company’s record on sexual misconduct.  Pichai reinforced that apology in an email to staff this week.

Isn’t it nice to know that Sundar and Larry offered their sincerest apologies?

They’re sorry alright.  Sorry they got caught!

The seriousness of these accusations coupled with mass employee walkouts would seem to call for more than just apologies!

Perhaps Sundar and/or Larry need to be shown the door, along with a few of their friends!

Perhaps Google executives should worry about their own behavior before worrying about manipulating search results in order to mute conservative viewpoints and push liberal leaning results!

Perhaps Google executives should stop claiming to know what’s best for the rest of us when they can’t even keep their pants on at work!

The unabashed hypocrisy demonstrated by liberal “know-it-alls” never ceases to amaze me.

I’m sure we won’t have to wait too long for our next installment of “As the World Googles.”

Stay tuned.
