(NationalSentinel) Conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs Wednesday that there is a “digital civil war” underway between Left-leaning tech giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Google and Republican Trump supporters who must “stand up” to those companies or “live on their knees.”
“Well, this is not without precedent Lou. Of course we’ve seen many Republicans over last few years, Paul Ryan and others kind of play Marquess of Queensberry rules when the left has long since abandoned any shred of decency,” Dhillon noted.
“And today what any sane person needs to learn from the mob is that you can never bend your knee to the mob and apologize to them because they will simply take it as the beginning of a further negotiation to eliminate you,” she added.
Dhillon’s comments come as Dr. Robert Epstein, a senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, said in an interview with The Epoch Times that Google is planning to employ a number of techniques, mostly through “ephemeral experiences,” that are designed to shift votes in the 2020 election.
“Google will actively interfere in the 2020 elections,” Epstein said. “They’ll actively interfere in their lobbying efforts, they’ll actively interfere with their political donations, and they’ll actively interfere using the online methods of manipulation that I’ve studied and probably other methods that I haven’t yet discovered,” he told the news agency.
Leaked internal emails from Google last year showed that employees specifically discussed launching “ephemeral experiences” to counter Trump’s then-travel ban, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Ephemeral experiences are defined as brief online moments were information is instantaneously generated, as in search suggestions. But they aren’t stored anywhere in databases and thus cannot be tracked, giving the company plausible deniability.
In July during congressional testimony, Epstein testified that should all tech giants including Google, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube come together to support one candidate next year, which seems likely and which isn’t going to be Trump, then they could shift 15 million votes.
In her interview with Dobbs, Dhillon, the Republican National Lawyers Association Vice President, cited one of the most recent notable examples of what she notes is Left-wing bias by Twitter.
“Just today Twitter — actually in the last 24 hours — Twitter took the official campaign account of Mitch McConnell, the number two most powerful Republican in the United States, offline because McConnell was trying to document threats against him,” she said.
“There is no doubt that we’re in an absolute digital civil war in this country. And Republicans need to be prepared to stand up and fight back or live on their knees. And I’m not prepared to do that,” she added.
Epstein has previously noted that Google and the tech giants have worked to interfere in elections.
In March, he released data analyzed from Google searches he said were linked to a trio of highly competitive congressional races in Southern California that were won by Democrats. In doing so, Epstein’s research team discovered that Google’s “clear Democrat bias” likely flipped those seats away from GOP candidates.
