A former Google engineer said Monday that he thinks the tech giant is intent on influencing the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
“When President Trump won in 2016, Google executives went on stage right away and cried — literal tears streaming down their faces,” Kevin Cernekee said on “Fox & Friends” Monday.
“They vowed that it would never happen again and they want to use all the power and resources they have to control the flow of information to the public and make sure that Trump loses in 2020,” said Cernekee.
The engineer claims he’s been blacklisted by the search engine company for holding conservative views. “They are very biased. There is bias at every level of the organization…and if you disagree with them even one iota, they will come after you, they’ll target you, they’ll make you an example,” he said.
Cernekee said Google will “ramp up the censorship,” curtailing political advertisements and filtering search results to promote Democrats, Fox News reports.
He also said Google has the tools to make it happen. “Google has a huge amount of information on every voter in the U.S.,” he said, adding that the company will “build psychological profiles” on users.
Cernekee said members of Congress should act swiftly. “I think President Trump needs to know that there are a lot of potential whistleblowers in these companies,” Cernekee said. “And they will speak up if they know he has their back.”
In an appareance Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Cernekee said the company’s management as “highly ideological.”
“You can see bias at every level at the organization,” he said. “One thing that I’ve noticed that just handling routine issues is plagued with bias. Like they will get a report, an email from a liberal reporter complaining about something and they will jump on it and they will fix the issue very, very quickly,” the Daily Caller reports.
Cernekee told Carlson how it took nine months to fix a bug he reported that returned “Mein Kampf” to people who search for Trump’s book “Crippled America.”
“They just stalled at every opportunity,” said Cernekee. “They assigned it to people who no longer work there. They made every excuse in the book to avoid taking down something that made Donald Trump look bad. And I saw a number of other incidents just like that.”
