If This Video Was “Leaked” Is There Dissent Inside Google?
LEAKED VIDEO: Google Leadership’s Dismayed Reaction to Trump Election
By Allum Bokhari • September 12, 2018
A video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay amongst the tech giant’s leadership, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the globe.
The video is a full recording of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 election (these weekly meetings are known inside the company as “TGIF” or “Thank God It’s Friday” meetings). Sent to Breitbart News by an anonymous source, it features co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat, and CEO Sundar Pichai. It can be watched in full above. It can and should be watched in full above in order to get the full context of the meeting and the statements made.
It was reported earlier this week that Google tried to boost turnout among the Latino population to help Hillary Clinton, only to be dismayed as the usually solid Democratic voting bloc switched to the GOP in record numbers. This video shows a similar level of dismay among Google’s most high-profile figures.
These individuals, who preside over a company with unrivaled influence over the flow of information, can be seen disparaging the motivations of Trump voters and plotting ways to use their vast resources to thwart the Trump agenda.
Co-founder Sergey Brin can be heard comparing Trump supporters to fascists and extremists. Brin argues that like other extremists, Trump voters were motivated by “boredom,” which he says in the past led to fascism and communism.
The Google co-founder then asks his company to consider what it can do to ensure a “better quality of governance and decision-making.”
VP for Global Affairs Kent Walker argues that supporters of populist causes like the Trump campaign are motivated by “fear, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”
Later, Walker says that Google should fight to ensure the populist movement – not just in the U.S. but around the world – is merely a “blip” and a “hiccup” in a historical arc that “bends toward progress.”
CEO Sundar Pichai states that the company will develop machine learning and A.I. to combat what an employee described as “misinformation” shared by “low-information voters.”

Sundar Pichai (Pichai was born in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India), Professor Darrell Hamamoto over at UC Davis had a few things to say about “servitors of empire”. How is that working out at Google for you? And Sundar, keep your foreign concepts of “democracy” in your own country of India, will you please?
Trump’s Row With Google
Google’s The Selfish Ledger (leaked internal video)
The United States Attorney Jeff Sessions is “open to a probe” of social media giants. A probe? That’s it, a probe? Well then, why not put on a latex glove and shove it really deep into Google, better yet, why not slam Google with anti-trust laws?
Jeff Sessions is open to a probe of the big social media giants. Yes, Mr. Sessions, definitely a probe. And while you’re considering a probe, Mr. Sessions, consider an extra added deep probe into how Google created a covert server to hide classified Benghazi emails from the US Congress.
