4,000 Google Employees Threaten To Quit Over ‘Deep State’ Collusion


4,000 Google staff threaten to quit over the company's Deep State ties

 Over a dozen Google employees have quit and a further 4,000 are threatening to walk out over the company’s ongoing ties to the ‘Deep State’. 

 Amid a total media blackout, thousands of Google workers are demanding that Google end their participation in a ‘Deep State’ project with the Pentagon called Project Maven.

Engadget.com reports: Project Maven seeks to help the military analyze drone footage faster through machine learning, as the AI detects people and objects for human review.

 Those who resigned from Google cited ethical concerns over the use of AI in drone operations and the company’s broader involvement in political and military spheres — Google recently sponsored the Conservative Political Action Conference, for instance.

 Some claimed that Google is increasingly less transparent with employees about contentious decisions and seems less concerned about objections from staffers than it used to be. “I wasn’t happy just voicing my concerns internally,” one employee who left told Gizmodo. “The strongest possible statement I could take against this was to leave.”

 Opposition to Maven seems to be growing inside Google. As of about a month ago, around 3,100 employees had signed the petition. Approximately 5.4 percent of the workforce have now voiced their concern.

 Yet Google is forging ahead with Maven, noting that because the technology used in the project is open source, the military could use it regardless of the company’s direct involvement.

 Some of the employees who have resigned and the petitioners claim Maven runs contrary to Google’s ethos — the mantra “don’t be evil” has long been at the heart of Google’s principles.

 The company has insisted that the AI is not being used for combat operations, but its involvement has still upset many within its ranks. Meanwhile, AI and ethics academics who are supporting the petition also want Google to back a treaty banning autonomous weapons systems, and suggested that Google’s obligations extend beyond America’s interests as they are tied to a global user base.

OMG!! WTF!!: Rep. Ilhan Omar Tells CNN That She Doesn’t Know Why Her Anti-Israel Tweets Would Offend Jewish People

Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her anti-Israel sentiments on CNN on Thursday, saying that she doesn’t know why those comments would offend the Jewish-American community.

Omar famously tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

When asked about the tweet by CNN, Omar responded, “oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”

Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.

Omar added that her comments were “precisely addressing what was happening during the Gaza war,” and that she was “clearly” speaking about the way the “Israeli regime” was “conducting themselves in that war.”

Oh?!

Without any follow-up or push back, CNN moved on to asking the accused antisemitic congresswoman about her opinions on Rep. Steve King and his “racist remarks.”

While her perceived antisemitism is given a pass — Rep. King is boldly branded without any hesitation.

King has repeatedly stated that he was taken out of context and disavowed white supremacy and all forms of hatred – while Omar stands behind her bigotry. Yet, only King is facing consequences and blow back.
