Starting with last years Rebels of Google series, Breitbart News has uncovered a number of examples of clear bias at the Silicon Valley tech titan, now conservative leakers are reacting to the latest leak, in which a senior Google employee calls Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) a “terrorist” and a “violent thug.”
Breitbart News published leaked Google emails this week, this time showing a senior engineer at the company referring to Republican Representative Marsha Blackburn as a “violent political thug.” and a “terrorist.”
Breitbart News Senior Tech Reporter Allum Bokhari writes in his latest piece:
A senior software engineer at Google with responsibility for a key feature of Google’s search engine labeled Tennessee Senate candidate Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) a “violent thug” and a “terrorist,” who Google shouldn’t “negotiate” with, according to internal emails obtained by Breitbart News. The employee also defended the censorship of her campaign ads on social media.
Following the publication of Breitbart’s latest bombshell investigation, users across Twitter reacted to the news.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), defended Blackburn and said that the actions of Google employees raise questions about whether or not the platform can be trusted:
.@MarshaBlackburn is a bold conservative leader who stands up for our most vulnerable—the #unborn. Shame on Silicon Valley elites for calling her a “terrorist” & a “thug.” Their behavior again raises questions about whether their platforms can be trusted. https://t.co/x3HAhjo6dg

Blackburn herself reacted, stating that despite the “name-calling, censorship, or bias,” of certain Google employees, she would continue to stand up for free speech:
Once again, we are seeing Silicon Valley elites trying to impose their values on Americans. I will not be deterred by their name-calling, censorship, or bias, and will continue stand up for our shared values – which include freedom of speech. https://t.co/QKXiYD4GNh

Dr. Robert Epstein of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, a Democrat, stated that the latest Google leak just further proved his previous research that showed that the firm is biased towards Democrats:
A new #Google leak shows, yet again, extreme political #bias – even support for #censorship. My research is mentioned. I’m NOT a conservative, but I’m deeply concerned about the threat Big Tech companies pose to democracy. See https://t.co/PdPy87H19G @MarshaBlackburn
