Veritas: Google Programmer Admits How Liberal Bias Could Rig Election

October 20th, 2020 3:56 PM

An undercover report by Project Veritas purportedly shows a Google program manager explaining how bias at Google could be used to rig the 2020 presidential election.

Guerilla journalism outlet Project Veritas released footage of Senior Development Engineer Ritesh Lakhkar, who Project Veritas said is Google’s Cloud division technical program manager. In the video, Lakhkar condemned his company’s “ultra leftist” bias. He lambasted Google operatives’ megalomaniacal mentality suggesting that “You’re like playing selective God.” When asked about how YouTube is run, Lakhkar suggested, “We play God with that, too.”

Lakhkar specifically addressed how the biases in Google’s algorithms, which can be bought over with money, can sway the election. He explained that “The power’s in the search.” He further noted that the algorithms/results are “skewed by the owners and the drivers of the algorithm. Like so, if I say ‘Hey Google, here’s $2 billion, feed this data set of whenever ‘Joe Biden’ is searched, you’ll get these results.’”

He skewered multiple politicized Big Tech double-standards. “If it was fraud, it doesn’t matter, but for Trump, Melania Trump, it matters, and on the other side, Trump says something, misinformation, you’re gonna delete that because it’s illegal under whatever pretext,” he said. “If a Democratic leader says that, then you’re gonna leave it like that, so I’m like, okay, you’re not following one way or the other. You are just plain and simple trying to play God.”

Lakhkar lamented the hellish living conditions of working under Google’s current leadership: “I can’t keep doing this. Go and teach Chinese people how to do American jobs and come back and get surveilled on the way.”

Lakhkar illustrated how, by contrast, “when you have these candid conversations with your friends who are centrist or Republicans, then you wonder, all of a sudden, like, ‘Oh, I should vote for Trump.’” 

He also condemned the current state of YouTube for deleting controversial content: “It’s not a good thing and I agree with that, but if it’s freedom of speech, both sides need to get their opinion.”

Project Veritas published an infamous video in 2019 showing Google Responsible Innovation Head Jen Gennai warn that “breaking up Google” would not “prevent the next Trump situation.” She also speculated how changes in Google’s secret algorithms could have prevented Trump’s election from happening in the first place.

Liberal Google researcher Dr. Robert Epstein, a senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, has warned that Big Tech could change the course of the election. Epstein recently stated that Google may be “shifting power” to flip the Senate.

Epstein has also warned that Big Tech is capable of targeting individuals: “Google and Facebook have millions of pieces of information about every American voter, and they will be targeting their manipulations at the individual level for every single voter in every swing state. No one in the world except Google and Facebook can do that.”
