For several weeks, the free press has been attempting to shed light on the phenomenon known as “New Fascism” that has permeated the left side of American politics.
It all began with the violent resistance that liberal democrats had to the nomination, and subsequent election, of President Donald J. Trump in November. Their opposition to America’s strengthening conservative movement, festering within the echo chambers of the mainstream media, quickly turned into a game of propaganda-heavy chaos. The so-called “black bloc” tactics being employed by these radical leftists is textbook fascism…or, more accurately, it was textbook fascism until Google quietly adjusted their definition of the term.
“Merriam-Webster defines the word ‘fascism’ as ‘a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.’ The secondary definition is ‘a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control.’
“But if you type the word into Google, the definition they provide is quite different.
“The world’s largest search engine pins fascism on the political right, not the left.
“Google defines fascism as, ‘an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.’ (emphasis added)
“The secondary definition is, ‘(in general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.’
“That’s a striking difference from how the word has been defined for decades.”
This is yet another extremely blatant rewriting of history by the liberal-leaning internet giant, meant to bolster the rhetoric of the left. As violent liberal protesters took to the streets in an attempt to equate the presidency of Donald Trump with chaos, they had attempted to called themselves agents of “Antifa”, or “anti-fascism”.
Many on the right were supremely confused. Certainly, the singular, hive-minded, and forceful implementation of their own ideals on the rest of the populace, through the use of force, was textbook fascism to those of us who are versed in the historical use of the term. Google, however, knowing that their place in the world is that of omnipotence for the web-addicted youth, felt the need to rewrite the definition as to target conservatives specifically.
If this is not a travesty of language, politics, and a monopoly of information, then nothing is. Google’s reach has ascended to totalitarian levels, and the repeated evidence of their leftist-collusion is downright frightening to proponents of the First Amendment and freedom of speech. Google has become the end-all, be-all for millennials looking for information, and thus, they have a responsibility to fairness in their dissemination of facts.
Google, however, has chosen to shirk this responsibility in order to push an agenda.
