Google The Word Hypocrisy

The CEO of Google says that Google is not a place for politics. Excuse me while I lose my mind from the hypocrisy of that statement. This is Google we’re talking about! The company that is nothing if not political!

After Google fired 28 people for protesting the company’s relationship to Israel, CEO Sundar Pichai sent a memo to employees saying that Google “is a business and not a place to act in a way that disrupts co-workers or makes them feel unsafe, to attempt to use the company as a personal platform, or to fight over disruptive issues or debate politics.”

WHAT? Google allowed employees to demand changes in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020. Google willingly succumbed to government censorship around during the Covid-19 pandemic. Google built a racists AI program. Google has blacklisted conservative websites and email campaigns. I could go on all day about how Google IS politics and cannot pretend it isn’t. But now they want to pretend otherwise when pushed on its relationship with Israel? You cannot have it both ways: politics that you like and not the politics you don’t. The only way to win this is no politics period – like the Coinbase policy announced in 2021. Would anyone even recognize Google without politics?
