Project Veritas has obtained a newly leaked document from Google that appears to show a Google employee and member of Google “transparency-and-ethics” group calling conservative and libertarian commentators, including Dennis Prager and Ben Shapiro, “nazis.”
I don’t know who Prager is but I intensely dislike Ben Shapiro. Nazis, though? Leaving aside the ridiculousness of calling anybody named Shapiro a Nazi, is it now a new normal to attach horrible insults to anybody who deviates, however slightly, from ruling ideology?
This is not about liking Shapiro or Peterson. As I keep saying, this will impact everybody. By the way, during the Stalinist purges, the people who denounced “spies” and “traitors” the most loudly and sincerely were the first in line to get eliminated. Obviously, Google is not going to kill or torture anybody. But the environment of fear it creates will damage all of us.
