Right wing conspiracy alert: Google is working for Obama

A conservative nightmare: Every time you use Gmail, you're helping the left consolidate power

BY ANDREW LEONARD


The right-wing has its own news network and its own version of Wikipedia. Is a conservative search engine the next natural step?

That’s the only logical conclusion one can draw from a very worried post at RedState warning that Google may be operating as a “private intelligence agency” for the Democratic party.

I stress the word “may” here because author Ben Howe doesn’t include any, you know, evidence in his article demonstrating that Google is Obama’s secret weapon, but still, it’s pretty scary! — “Every time you use Google or Gmail you could be contributing just a little bit more of your behavioral data to the left.”

Howe’s working assumption is that the 2012 Obama campaign’s well-known superiority on the technological front could and should be linked to Google’s well-known leftist sympathies. (Joe Biden did a Google+ “hangout” on gun control! The company supports “net neutrality” — which everyone knows is just a whisker away from state seizure of the means of online production). From there it’s just a hop, skip, and jump to Google reading your email and reporting its contents to the commissars in the White House.

1. Oh No, the righties have discovered the secret plot

This bad news. It appears that the conservatives have uncovered Operation Google is our Friend. We need to seal the leaks on this operation as soon as possible.

2. Well, Google does monitor, analyze, your every move and use it to sell ads...

...but it's just to line their own pockets. They are only interested in the highest bidder.
