Facts are "fake news"

The social media giants are increasingly demonstrating themselves to be the servitors of Big Brother. White is black, day is night, Islam means peace, and real news is fake news:
Under the guise of tackling “fake news,” Google is removing search results that pertain to crime statistics that show black people commit more crimes, despite the fact that this is widely documented to be true. An article in the Guardian entitled Google ‘must review its search rankings because of rightwing manipulation’ details how “leading academics” are pressuring Google to artificially edit its search algorithm to prevent certain subjects from appearing at the top of its search rankings. In response, the piece notes that Google has removed search results that suggest “black people commit more crimes”. Negative results about the religion of Islam were also removed.
This is alarming given that virtually every metric proves that criminality is more prevalent in black communities compared to white and Hispanic communities in America. It’s an uncomfortable fact that black people commit more crimes than any other race in America, but it’s a fact nonetheless. Claiming that reality is actually “fake news” because it suits your political stance doesn’t change the nature of reality.

Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks commit around half of homicides in the United States. DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, blacks committed 52% of homicides, compared to 45% of homicides committed by whites.

More up to date FBI statistics tell a similar story. In 2013, black criminals carried out 38% of murders, compared to 31.1% for whites, again despite the fact that there are five times more white people in the U.S. From 2011 to 2013, 38.5 per cent of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black. This figure is three times higher than the 13% black population figure. Black males aged 15-34, who account for around 3% of the population, are responsible for the vast majority of these crimes.

Despite being outnumbered by whites five to one, blacks commit eight times more crimes against whites than vice-versa, according to FBI statistics from 2007. A black male is 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse.

While it is understandable that Google would want to prevent neo-nazi content from appearing at the top of its search rankings, the fact that the tech giant is now censoring objective facts under the justification of tackling “fake news” is chilling.

This indicates that Google, along with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media sites, are using the excuse of “fake news” to bury factual information that is inconvenient to leftist political narratives.
This dedication to falsehood and deception will only make it all the easier to disrupt them when the time comes. Furthermore, the charges of "neo-nazi" are every bit as dubious as the charge of "fake news".

Never forget the First Law of SJW: SJWS ALWAYS LIE.

A Facebook "friend" just sent me an aggressive message for liking a recent Ann Coulter/Steve Sailer post on standardized test scores showing the difference between races. He expected me to "defend" the "obvious and debunked lie that there are racial differences in intelligence".

Leftists don't want debate or discussion, they want to silence you. All the more reason to build your own platform as insurance against the inevitable censorship of Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. And to support the efforts to create Alt-Tech platforms. My Twitter follower count isn't worth mentioning, but I think I've gotten more Gab followers in a few months as I have on Twitter in a year or more. The currents of history are working against the thought police, the tighter they squeeze the stronger the counter reaction is going to be.

It's astonishing to watch leftists act on the belief that by squeezing out truths conflicting with their dogma they can actually control what people think.

It never seems to occur to them that the most they can do is push a trend slightly beyond its natural reversal, thus insuring that the change in trend is more violent than it naturally might have been.

Imagine if by censoring facts about inner-city black criminality multitudes of whites started driving through such neighborhoods or walking around them at night?

What would happen if 1-in-3 whites had the personal experience of being violently assaulted or losing a loved one to interracial violence? No more than a few whites are leftist enough to let that slide (they all make the news, too.)

The harder the morons at Google, et.al. squeeze, the more of everything will slip from their grasp.

Far be it from me to question Infowars, but is this actually true?

I tried a bunch of different search queries into Google, like "US black crime rates";

https://www.google.com/search?q=US+black+crime+rates&oq=US+black+crime+rates

and "black crime statistics"

https://www.google.com/search?q=black+crime+statistics

In both cases, the information appeared at the very top of the search rankings. In the first case, the top link was a Breitbart article. In the second case, a Dailywire one.

Is Infowars confusing something that SJW academics are merely requesting Google do versus something that has actually been implemented?

This is the paradox of "social" media. There's nothing at all "social" about traversing an unbridgeable chasm.

"Social" media are an artifact of the Universalist Cult Apogee; as trust begins to break down in earnest and the social circle with which people identify shrinks from "We Are The World" to "If I don't know you (and we're related) then you're an enemy," people's urge to share their lives with virtual strangers is likely to enter the extinction phase.

I wonder if the existence of "social" media will actually accentuate the breakdown of social trust, commerce and discourse?

That is of course a good point (about the debt-racketeering called 'prosperity') and you are by no means the first to make it. Vox, Barnhardt, Zero-Hedge and many others both before and after all see that it's bogus. The problem here is that all of these observers (who know what they're writing about) have failed to account for two factors which really cannot be measured in reliable way:

1. The cartel's ability to endlessly come up with variants on previous scams (Housing bubble 2.0, to give one example); and

2. The idiocracy's refusal to believe their lying eyes, spurred on by the (((gaslight media))).

Blogger Noah B The MacroAggressor December 07, 2016 12:32 PM  

@29 Google's search results have been intentionally altered in the past. (I don't know how the search results are compiled, so AFAIK it's possible that the alterations were made by someone running a bot outside Google.) One example: a year or so ago, a search for "white couple" would return almost exclusively pictures of black and white interracial couples. FAR too many to be coincidence. Now it shows mostly white couples but just a few interracial couples so the tampering isn't as obvious.

Blogger Cail Corishev December 07, 2016 12:40 PM  

During the campaign when the stories were hottest about Hillary's health problems, Google's auto-complete for "hillary clinton " wouldn't give me anything about that, or anything else negative in the top ten. Other engines did. Considering that was the biggest story in social media at the time, that was obviously rigged.

I could still type it in and search for it, but blocking some phrases from being auto-completed is one way they can keep those phrases from popping into the minds of people who weren't already looking for them, and interfere mildly with the efforts of those who are.

At the time, I didn't assume it was a company-wide policy. Presumably they have teams of people who try to keep "offensive" phrases from getting into the default auto-complete results, so it would just take a few individuals to take it upon themselves to add certain phrases as offensive -- knowing that if they're caught, their bosses won't object too much.

Blogger dc.sunsets December 07, 2016 12:48 PM  

@33 Gen Kong,
The problem here is that all of these observers (who know what they're writing about) have failed to account for two factors which really cannot be measured in reliable way:

A quibble: The mistake was to miss the only thing that really mattered: bonds (or debt in general.)

We've witnessed boom-bust phases in one market after another (two B-B's in each of stocks and commodities, possibly a second one in real estate, one in gold/silver) but all they constituted was wealth liquidity resulting from the Biggest Boom of ALL, bonds, sloshing around to fuel all the smaller market B-B's.

I figured out a couple years ago: Nothing matters but bonds (and by inference, interest rates.)

IOU's of one sort or another are multiple times the size of stocks, commodities and real estate combined. In a sense, debt (leverage) constitutes MOST of all those markets, because most of the buyers do so on margin of one kind or another, and then you have to add in every future cash flow now promised, from pensions and SocSec to Medicare et. al.

Interest rate changes in an environment of a galaxy of existing debt have the same effect as a marginal share price change in stocks when the number of shares outstanding is astronomical.

Even the seemingly small increase in rates during the last 5-14 months has destroyed unimaginable capital value across the bond market. Depending on what one prefers as a guess on total debt, average coupon and average duration, perhaps a sixth of peak dollar wealth in bonds evaporated in the last half year.

With 3 month T-bill rates hovering at 0.5% the Fed will almost certainly "raise" its benchmark rates next week.

If this all is a new trend, then the fuse is well and truly lit. Eventually, capital losses in the long term debt markets will begin to wash into every subordinate market.

Unless one believes the Fed (et. al.) actually control rates (I do not) then "sooner or later" looks a lot more like now.

What a foolish move by Google. It won't work, because everybody is onto the game. Last night in my neighborhood four women were shot. Their identities, and that of the shooter, do not appear in today's paper or in the police blotter. Everybody knows why. Nobody is fooled. The races involved make it to impolitic to mention.

And nobody is shocked it has happened. Since they've hit our neighborhood hard with Section 8 housing units, crime rates have soared. Youths started smoking dope in the kiddie playgrounds at night, that never happened before. We've had multiple waves of vehicle larcenies among our parked cars, that never happened before. Everybody is sure to lock their doors now, that didn't happen before.

This is what causes "white flight", and it's a reality on the ground that neither Google nor the governments can hide. We have it in every major city in the US, and now, thanks to Merkel and the EU mandarins, it's coming your way hard, Europe.

Issue is most of those would qualify as 'fake' sites to many people. What people really want (at least if I was really searching) is FBI and other official sources. And you would think those would be higher up (though there might be issues with phrase matching and popularity in the last 60 days affecting the ranking)

Again, this might all be a non story on the results side, but it does seem odds that almost all the top results are more journalistic and less bare fact based.

Anonymous a deplorable rubberducky December 07, 2016 1:24 PM  

I betcha it could be mathematically proven, with little effort, that what Google is doing is very self-defeating. They must know this.

The real engine for Google's algorithm is the people. Google looks for what pages are linked to the most and viewed the most. That's how a given page's worth is measured. So that worth is determined by the users, and so any given page's worth is in effect "crowdsourced".

Yet again, the one surest way to defeat the "wisdom of the crowds" is to feed them misinformation. Every move by Google to introduce it's own preferred content, either through selling page ranking to advertisers or by some idiot committee who's trying to steer content in a PC direction, introduces bias into the very heart of the algorithmic engine. It's the "garbage in, garbage out" scenario. The more Google does this, the more ineffective its search algorithm becomes.

I think proof of exists already. Remember how it was in the pre-Google days, the days when Altavista, Excite!, etc. ruled the Internet search universe. Google came along like manna from Heaven. The breadth and depth of a Google search put everything else to shame. It really was remarkable.

But, over time as they have gotten more and more involved in selling page ranks and controlling search content, a steep decline in quality of results has come along with it. Google today has reverted to be just about indistinguishable from where we were with Altavista & Co.

Google is now nowhere near where it was originally in terms of quality. This slide will continue as long as they keep feeding bullshit to the users, the VERY ones who are at the heart of their algorithm. They have to know this, they are not dumb. I guess maybe they're banking on their enormous size, scale, and market domination and thinking it's something they can afford. And also, this determination to shape the public is something you just can't talk a progressive out of, no matter how obviously foolish it is. The whole point of their religion is to try it.

Infogalactic's approach of facts (or to treat web pages as "data"), but then a slider gloss would work even better.

> Google is removing search results that pertain to crime

So I type "US crimes by race" into Google and the first, promoted result comes back "According to the BJS non-Hispanic blacks accounted for 39.4% of the prison and jail population in 2009, while non-Hispanic whites were 34.2%, and Hispanics (of any race) 20.6%. The incarceration rate of black males was over six times higher than that of white males, with a rate of 4,749 per 100,000 US residents."

The next six results are from news sites with the same statistics, and the eighth result is the Uniform Crime Report from the FBI saying the same.

I never bothered to figure out what "non-Hispanic whites" were, which seem to be now joined by "non-Hispanic blacks," whatever those were. The Fed seems to be eaten up by "race" these days.

I gave up when I couldn't figure out why an Apache born on one side of the Rio Grande was a "Native American" (and, despite being born here, I'm not...) and an Apache born on the other side is a "Mexican." because, you know, all Mexicans are the same...

Google's weakness is they have an algorithm. ONE algorithm. There is reverse SEO where if I tweak some keywords I can sometimes get better results.

Why not multiple algorithms I can tweak and weight myself?

I strongly suspect that if any of us normal people spent a few 12 hour days with the corporate officers of major multinationals, high level politicians, wealthy celebrities from music, TV/movies, art or athletics, or anyone with a net worth over $500 million we'd conclude that they were completely nuts, I mean, baying-at-the-moon lunatics.

The average person clearly believes in magic and superstition. I think those at the very pinnacle of things believe this, and believe themselves to be magic, too.

Absolute power doesn't just corrupt, it produces mental gangrene.


There was a very interesting discussion about this very issue over at Auster's VFR blog around 8-9 years ago. VFR's archive is still available thanks to Laura Wood, so it can probably be found with enough digging. At any rate, the posters and Auster basically came to the same position as yours. There are really very few people who can handle large amounts of wealth without it going to their heads. Beyond a certain figure - take 1/2 million a year as an example - one can live very comfortably without having to work 20 hours a day. It's not the money which drives the folks like Gates, Buffet, Zuckerberg, Soros, etc. but the high of insanity - a kind of magical thinking that they are the gods above it all. The Pizzagarchs even coined a term for themselves in keeping with this insanity: Masters of the Universe. Interesting point about the bond market, by the way.

Left a post after class in the classroom; I knew the class before I taught there was in bioethics or some sort of nonsense. I posted the famous Chateau dictum:

"Diversity + Proximity = War"

I got a reply on the bulletin board that stated:

"Heterogeneity + Hybridization = Health - Biology rules!"

I replied:

"Tell that to the sterile mule. Dysgenics is biology too."

I will probably never teach at that college again.

George Washington University teaching instructor Dr. Kristian Henderson had been battling with her hair for years, but after the election, she finally took off her weave and cut it all off. “The election results felt like an attack on minorities, women, and marginalized people in general. Having long hair was my attempt to fit into society, so after the election, I felt a need to exert my ‘uniqueness’ and not tie my femininity to the length of my hair,” she says. Vegan chef Mya Zeronis — who says she’s “a minority in almost every way possible: immigrant woman of color and LGBQT person” — clipper-cut her brown hair on November 18 “to send a message to the Trump presidency.”

Fran @3: "Not sure if off topic but wondering when Twitter is going to ban Trump."

Probably not so long as CEO Jack Dorsey finds him fascinating:

"Having the president-elect on our service, using it as a direct line of communication, allows everyone to see what's on his mind in the moment," Dorsey said. "I think that's interesting. I think it's fascinating."

Dorsey said Twitter plays a big part in distributing news and opinions and has a responsibility "to make sure that people are seeing what they need to see." He seemed unclear how Trump's continued use of Twitter might affect social media in the future.

"We're definitely entering a new world where everything is on the surface and we can all see it in real time and we can all have conversations about it," he said. "Where does that go, I'm not really sure? But it's definitely been fascinating to learn from."


That is subject to change, of course -- all it takes is one wrong Tweet....

Right on schedule. The media has always found Trump interesting, and that won't change. They are going to talk about him. They can fill the articles with bashing, but as long as they talk about him, Americans will wonder what he has to say, and it will help him get his message out.

They're going to wonder how he gets around them and reaches the people directly, just as they did with Reagan -- more so, since there are so many more communications channels now.

See, this is why SJW are even shit at SJ. Helping people and communities means a response to their ACTUAL problems and environment, not a response to what you imagine those should be.

SJWs consistently create worse outcomes for their pet groups than the right does, because they do not believe in facts, process or outcomes... and Justice of ANY KIND can only be served by diligent attention to those three.

That is why racists are almost always better for ethnic minority welfare than SJWs.

Even the most foul-mouthed racist who approaches with verifiable and falsifiable facts, sets in motion a rational, organized, and orderly process, and then measures and quantifies outcomes, creating new data for "facts" and assessing "process" for iterative improvement, is going to achieve positive outcomes.

Conversely, an SJW that relies on lies, ad-hoc foolishness, and total ignorance, MUST fail.

"While it is understandable that Google would want to prevent neo-nazi content from appearing at the top of its search rankings, the fact that the tech giant is now censoring objective facts under the justification of tackling “fake news” is chilling."

Am I correct in assuming that you seriously want us to believe that the "Alt Right/Game Gate crowd" doesn't have members with the knowledge and capability to manipulate search engine results, site statistics and other measures of activity -- .. this is one of the real strengths of the Alt right - you guys know technology and how things work and more importantly how to manipulate (we used to call it hacking) the system. Hell ..

Now --- whether Google are the right ones to do this is debatable - their hands certainly are not clean -- in fact, some of the tech now being used to manipulate the system was first created to support targeting users for marketing and sales by Google .. it just took the alt right (and perhaps the former Soviets ) to figure a way to use this for political effect...

I am actually beginning to strongly doubt the benefit of the internet --- sure it was cool to start - email was cool ... but soon there was viruses, malware and spam .. then the outsource of work and jobs around the globe made possible by the internet -

But in all seriousness .. there is no going back now...

"Fake News"...

Isn't it amazing how the left always seems to come up with a new meme when they need to attack some specific aspect of tradition, and that it instantly gets used by the lugenpresse?

This requires coordination on a grand scale including:
1) Agreement on the target;
2) Agreement on the most effective meme;
3) Dissemination to all who will wield it as a weapon, including press, pundits, academia, paid trolls, politicians.

It's almost as if there is some centralized coordinating team whose sole job is to set up the next meme. Who would have thunk it ??? It's obviously been effective for decades. To counteract it the alt-right has a loose, non-centralized coalition of eager cartoonists, designers, and wordsmiths... hopefully it can war effectively with the leftist vermin.

@100 capitalism outperforms centrally run economies, repeatedly. It is also almost impossible to form a proper monopoly on power or information in a free market, one reason the Left is so keen on one big central provider for any given service.

A big central provider can be parasitized very effectively, but NOT if there are crowds of unpredictable would-be competitors waiting for it to weaken.

Economic socialism, and political socialism, need each other. And THAT is a severe weakness, to be exploited mercilessly.
