Leaked Google Emails Reveal Internal Discussion On Burying Articles From Conservative Outlets

This blog, online since 2005, and our predecessor Little Nicky Machiavelli have been reporting on the corporate malfeasance of Google since the search giant launched.

Google has always been politically motivated, the two semi autistic nerds reputed to have created the technology went straight from being socially challenged college kids to being billionaires, totally missing out of real life aling the way. Thus they have always clung to the kind of naive, extremist political positions embraced by students. After the 2016 election the corporation was exposed as having tried to help Hillary Clinton win, and who beside themselves with angst after she lost. Since then Google has been at the forefront of the Democrats campaign of misinformation, disinformation, distortion, misrepresentation and downright lies aimed to stirring up suspicions of collusion between the Trump campaign and the government of Russia to steal the election. Unfortunately such evidence as has come to light suggests Google and social media giant Facebook were the only organisations meddling in the election, and they were on the side of Clinton.

Now leaked documents show high level meetings of Google’s management discussed whether to bury conservative media outlets in the company’s search function after Donald Trump became president, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation‘s Peter Hasson.

Internal communications obtained by the The Daily Caller reveal that The Daily Caller and Breitbart were specifically singled out for potential censorship.

Communications obtained by TheDCNF show that internal Google discussions went beyond expressing remorse over Clinton’s loss to actually discussing ways Google could prevent Trump from winning again.

This was an election of false equivalencies, and Google, sadly, had a hand in it,” Google engineer Scott Byer wrote in a Nov. 9, 2016, post reviewed by TheDCNF.

Byer falsely labeled The Daily Caller and Breitbart as “opinion blogs” and urged his coworkers to reduce their visibility in search results.

How many times did you see the Election now card with items from opinion blogs (Breitbart, Daily Caller) elevated next to legitimate news organizations? That’s something that can and should be fixed,” Byer wrote.

I think we have a responsibility to expose the quality and truthfulness of sources – because not doing so hides real information under loud noises,” he continued.

“Beyond that, let’s concentrate on teaching critical thinking. A little bit of that would go a long way. Let’s make sure that we reverse things in four years – demographics will be on our side.” –DCNF

Not all Google employees agreed with the notion of censoring conservative outlets; engineer Uri Dekel – a self-described Clinton supporter, argued that manipulating search results was the wrong approach.

“Thinking that Breitbart, Drudge, etc. are not ‘legitimate news sources’ is contrary to the beliefs of a major portion of our user base is partially what got us to this mess. MSNBC is not more legit than Drudge just because Rachel Maddow may be more educated / less deplorable / closer to our views, than, say Sean Hannity,” Dekel wrote Byer in a reply, adding “I follow a lot of right wing folks on social networks you could tell something was brewing. We laughed off Drudge’s Instant Polls and all that stuff, but in the end, people go to those sources because they believe that the media doesn’t do it’s job. I’m a Hillary supporter and let’s admit it, the media avoided dealing with the hard questions and issues, which didn’t pay off. By ranking ‘legitimacy’ you’ll just introduce more conspiracy theories”

Another engineer, Mike Brauwerman, suggested that the company could avoid “accusations of conspiracy or bias” by using technology to “trace information to its source, to link to critiques of these sources, and let people decide what sources they believe.”

“Give people a comprehensive but effectively summarized view of the information, not context-free rage-inducing sound-byte,” added Brauwerman.

Other Google employees have expressed support for providing context to sources in order to “help” users evaluate information. Unfortunately, the search giant’s solution was to employ fact-checking organizations with a liberal bias, such as Snopes, which has never exposed a Democrat lie and never acknowledged a Republican truth.

According to the Caller. Google eventually pulled their fact-checkers in January, crediting an investigation by the Daily Caller in their decision.

Google claims that the email conversation did not lead to the manipulation of search results for political purposes.

“This post shows that far from suppressing Breitbart and Daily Caller, we surfaced these sites regularly in our products. Furthermore, it shows that we value providing people with the full view on stories from a variety of sources,” the spokeswoman told TheDCNF in an email.

Google has never manipulated its search results or modified any of its products to promote a particular political ideology. Our processes and policies do not allow for any manipulation of search results to promote political ideologies.” –DCNF

Anyone who still believes anything an official spokesperson says or that is included in a Google press realease is obviously two bits short of a byte – speaking of which, if you want to know do Google manipulate search results, a Google search for “Idiot” returns pictures of the Trump family, while the same search in DuckDuckGo is completely different:

vs:

This isn’t the first time Google have been caught manipulating search results either:

After Trump announced his initial travel ban in January 2017, Google employees discussed ways to manipulate search results in order to push back against the president’s order.

A group of employees brainstormed ways to counter “islamophobic, algorithmically biased results from search terms ‘Islam’, ‘Muslim’, ‘Iran’, etc,” as well as “prejudiced, algorithmically biased search results from search terms ‘Mexico’, ‘Hispanic’, ‘Latino’, etc.”

Meanwhile, President Trump told the Daily Caller in September he suspectted that Google and Facebook were trying to manipulate election outcomes in the 2018 US midterm elections.

‘Unbiased’ Facebook Fired Executive For Pro – Trump Political Beliefs

image
Zuck plays with one of Luckey’s gadgets but denies Luckery the right to his own opinions.

Mainstream media and left wing politicians like to show how they are up with modern trends and developments by heaping praise on psychopathic Silicon Valley, virtue-signaling, shadowbanning, conservative – censoring, fake news generating social media billionaires. Thus, though the political bias towards the left / liberal parties and causes is blatantly obvious, they are allowed, when they appear before US Congressional committees to answer questions on abuse of privacy, or respond to accusations of bias by devising  PR campaigns to show to the world they are truly impartial, with zero liberal bias. Unfortunately, every time they try to pull such a stunt, it backfires as their true ideological face quickly emerges from behind a fake, hypocritical mask.

A case in point is that of former Facebook executive, Oculus co-founder and virtual-reality wunderkind Palmer Luckey, who was a rising star of Silicon Valley when, at the height of the 2016 presidential contest, he donated a modest $10,000 to an anti-Hillary Clinton group. His donation sparked a backlash from his colleagues, which then led to him being put on leave, and six months later he was fired.

What stinks about Luckey’s termination, is that when testifying before Congress about data privacy earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg denied, or rather lied that the departure had anything to do with politics. In fact, neither Facebook nor Mr. Luckey ever gave a reason why he left the social-media giant.

Now however, disgusted perhaps by Zuckerberg’s continued hypocrisy in claiming Facebook is a totally neutral platform politically: according to a report from the WSJ, Luckey revealed to asociates the reason for his termination from that bastion of apolitical impartiality Facebook, was his support for Donald Trump and the furor that his political beliefs sparked within his employer, and Silicon Valley, some of those people say.

We should perhaps remind you here that support for Trump does not necessarily imply agreement with Trump’s policies or admiration of his abrasive style. Post election analysis showed many people supported Trump because they were horrified at the prospect of corrupt, crooked, warmongering, morally dysfunctional Hillary Clinton, who in her campaign had effectively promised war with Russia by committing herself to attacking the Assad regime in Syria as soon as she took office.

Luckey’s attack on Facebook and Zuckerberg is not just sour grapes either:leaked  internal Facebook emails suggest the matter was discussed at the highest levels of the company. In the fall of 2016, as anger over his modest political donation to a candidate the boss didn’t like simmered, executives at Facebook – which according to Open Secrets has spent over $60 million on lobbying in the past decade – including Zuckerberg pressured Mr. Luckey to publicly voice support for libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, despite Mr. Luckey’s years long support of Trump.

At that point Luckey, 26, allegedly hired an employment lawyer who argued to Facebook that it had violated California law in pressuring the executive to voice support for Johnson and for punishing an employee for political activity.

Which, we have to say is pretty typical behaviour among Silicon Valley billionires. Go against the ‘corporate culture’ as dictated by the billionaire boss, and you are dead

Luckey and his lawyer are not as stupid as Zuckerberg is arrogant and megalomaniacal, and negotiated a payout of at least $100 million, representing an acceleration of stock awards and bonuses he would have received through July 2019, plus cash, according to the people familiar with the case. The stock awards and bonuses were a result of selling his virtual-reality company, Oculus VR, to Facebook in 2014 for more than $2 billion, a deal that netted him a total of about $600 million.

In other words, Facebook can claim it was Trump’s “fault” that a $10,000 donation resulted in a $100,000,000 payout just a few months later. What a bunch of wankers.

The left’s identity politics falls apart ahead of US Midterm elections

As the US 2018 midterm elections loom ever larger on the horizon it is clear the US electorate has never been more implacably polarised, while the smearing, lying, backstabbing and name calling have never been more blatant. The Democrats know there is not only control of the Senate and House of Representatives at stake, but the outcome will have a huge influence on the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election when Donald Trump will seek a second term. Win control of both houses, the Democrats will be able to effectively hamstring Trump’s presidency, win only the House of Representatives and they will be able to make life difficilt for his administration. Six months ago it looked as though The Democrats could gain control of both houses but since then they have been determined to show they can repeat hillary clinton’s trick of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

The failed attempt to derail the conformation of Supreme Court nomineee Brett Kavanaugh by smearing him with an unsubstantiated accusation of a sexual misdemeanour which allegedly took place 35 years ago and was witnesses by nobody (not even the victim apparently, given her inability to remember accurately and details of the when and where,) seriously backfired on the party. This was followed by the debacle over claims made by 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren, who in a bid to gain support from minorities said she is a member of the Chreokee nation. Unfortunately Ms. Warren, whose claim dates back to her 2012 senatorial campaign, was pressured into taking a DNA test, and proved to be ten generations away from any Cherokee ansector.

The left’s assumption is that women and minorities Democrats because they perceive supporting the party’s liberal stance as being in their best interest while major cultural events back up that view. This is not entirely true, the Republicans have done as much on civil rights, while before World War 2 The Democrats were the part of slavery and segregation in the southern states , (it’s all documented.) Over the course of the past two weeks, since the conformation of Justice Kavanaugh, and the discrediting of ‘Fauxoontas’ Warren as Trump calls her, the left’s strategy of identity politics as a way to divide and conquer American voters has not only failed catastrophically, it’s backfired.

We saw this play out first with the fight to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The narrative, created by the left and repeated by allies in the media, quickly became about women. Without distinction, it was declared that all women were on the side of Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

This was not true and it refelcts badly on The Democrats and feminism the assumption that ‘all women’ hold the opinion the liberal narrative on mainstream media assigns them can even be made. Hundreds of women who knew Kavanaugh came out publicly in his defense, saying that he had always behaved properly in female company. Scores of women wearing “I Stand With Brett” and “Women For Kavanaugh” T-shirts gathered on Capitol Hill to show their support for his nomination. Thousands tweeted #HimToo as a way to show support for due process and evidence to back accusations.

After years of pussy hats, #MeToo, college kangaroo courts and entirely spurious gay and trans rights cases, plus some particularly nasty outbreaks of fascist style street violence people don’t buy the liberal message about a right wing ‘war on women,’ the ‘rape culture’ or the need to ‘exterminate white heterosexual males.” These crude scare tactics are repeated at left wing events and rallies designed to grab the votes of women and ethnic / sexual minorities. But Democrats are making a huge miscalculation.

Conservatives are furious at the people purporting to speak for women, furious that what should have been an ordinary parsing of evidence (what little there is after 36 years) was turned into a Kabuki theater campaign ad for the Democratic Party, stressing their trope that the GOP is conducting a so-called war on women,” Stephanie Gutmann wrote in an op-ed for USA Today.

More importantly, this facile assumption that ‘all women’ supported #MeToo because ‘all women’ have faced sexual harassment from every man they meet, that ethnic minorities are constantly beaten down by ‘white racism’ or ‘white privilege’ and that gays are universal victims (when most have good careers and are accepted by most people, has encouraged conservatives to get ready to head to the polls and vote against Democratic Party candidates.

According to a survey conducted by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Polls, enthusiasm among Republican women jumped 12 percent since Kavanaugh was announced in July and that was further solidified during and after his confirmation.

Shortly after Kavanaugh was officially sworn in as a justice, President Trump held a meeting at the White House with rapper and cultural icon Kanye West.

With the cameras rolling, West lavished Trump with praise, talked about prison reform and explained why he loves what the president is doing. “He can speak for me any time he wants,” Trump said from the Oval Office. “He’s a smart cookie. He gets it.”

It was yet another cultural moment that derailed the left’s talking points: African-Americans are Democrats and could never align themselves with a Republican president has been the assumprion for several decades. The meeting was shocked many liberals, particularly those easily triggered snowflakes, the university students and spun many into a panic of egregious and racist insults.

“Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” CNN commentator Bakari Sellers said on Don Lemon’s show.

Since West showed support for Trump’s policies earlier this year, the president’s approval among African-American voters has been on the rise.

In a desperate attempt to somehow fit into the left’s narrative on race, the Warren fiasco further alienated minorities Complete with a video and extensive campaign website, the data shows she might be 1/1,024th Native American.

The fallout was swift and painful.

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. released in a statement. “Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. … Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

Warren’s cultural and victim status appropriation not only further hampered her reputation, but threw a bomb into the waning “blue wave” just three weeks ahead of the midterms.

“Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now? Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???” tweeted Jim Messina, former President Obama’s 2012 campaign manager.

The Democrats obsession with skin color and gender, and their fondness for Islam while they simultaneously denounce Christianity and are positively anti – Semitic (as are their fellowe travellers the UK Labour Party,) is as a strategy, falling apart and recent events show why. Nov. 6 is just around the corner and the battle lines for presidential votes are already being drawn. For Democrats, those lines are being crossed as women and minorities vote on interest, not on identity politics.

Conservative Facebook Employee Who Wrote Memo On “Intolerant” Liberals Quits

Things are not getting any better for Facebook:

from Zero Hedge

A Facebook engineer whose controversial memo on the company’s “political monoculture” that is “intolerant” of conservatives, had quit his job according to Business Insider.

Engineer Brian Amerige sent an internal message to co-workers on Wednesday, writing:

“These problems can be solved — just not by me, not any more, at least. I care too deeply about our role in supporting free expression and intellectual diversity to even whole-heartedly attempt the product stuff anymore, and that’s how I know it’s time to go.”


Brian Amerige

Amerige goes on to say that he is starting a company with a friend “at the intersection of applied philosophy (epistemology, specifically) and technology.”

In August, Amerige – who identifies politically as an objectivist – came under fire for an internal memo denouncing the Silicon Valley’s “intolerant” culture. “We are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views … we claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology,” he wrote.

His memo led to the creation of “FB’ers for Political Diversity,” a group of hundreds of conservative employees who came together to protest the company’s liberal bias. Posters promoting the group began to appear across the company’s campus, while debates over Facebook’s political bias have broken out between employees.

Why The Western Democracies Are Failing


For too long the democratic nations of the world, which are mostly in North America and Europe, with some outposts such as Autralia, have followed the lead of The United States of America both economically and socially. And the USA has been leading us to disaster for fifty years.

Forget this week’s utter fiasco of Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the upreme court, and the utterly pathetic attempt by the Democrats to prevent President Tump’s nominee’s conformation. It doesn’t matter whether Brett Kavanaugh becomes a justice of the Supreme Court or not; one more Deep State lackey will change nothing.

For years, the Courts and elected assemblies of has looked the other way as the banking cartel colaborated with central banks and global corporations to rob one class of citizen (ordinary, working people) and reward another (the elite).

As a result, the American economic empire faces a catastrophic crisis as wealth concentrates in fewer hands, and the debts of the have nots (both nations and individuals, become overwhelming. The resurgence of nationalism in Europe is one symptom, the increasing number of regional conflicts and rising tensions between the western democracies and the non – democratic eastern bloc, is another. And the upsuge in Islamic fundamentalism is the third and probably the most dangerous. All this is being played out to the accompaniment of internal schisms, social breakdowns, and dangerous political scuffles.

Why, you might well ask.

If you work by the hour, the boss can buy your time. That’s what it really means to say someone is “rich” – he has more time because he can control not only his own, but yours, too.

Somebody who had $1,000 worth of stocks in 1971 could buy approximately 250 of the average working man’s hours. Today, that $1,000 worth of stocks is worth about $28,000… which, at today’s $26-per-hour average, will buy 1,077 hours of the typical working man’s time – four times as much as in 1971.

In other words, compared to the wage earner, the capitalist is four times as rich.

Invert it, and you see about the same thing. A working man would have had to labor for 212 hours to buy the 30 Dow stocks in 1971. Today, his time is much less valuable; he has to sweat for over 1,100 hours to buy the Dow.

It is this hollowing out of the middle class (not the middle class in the British sense, where the class system is much more complicated,) that is behind the chaos in the democratic world. The group in the middle is getting smaller, the’poor’ are growing exponentially in number and the rich are getting richer and more out of touch with the realities other classes face. It cannot end well.

Earlier we reported President Trump’s attack on Google, with his remarks later broadening to include Twitter and Facebook, accusing the Silicon Valley digital media giants of leftist bias and Google particularly of “rigging” search results by presenting only results, in his words, “from National Left-Wing Media.” He claimed “Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good.”

“Those companies “better be careful because you can’t do that to people,” Trump said later in the Oval Office. “I think that Google, and Twitter and Facebook, they are really treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful. It is not fair to large portions of the population.”

Google immediately responded, condemning Trump’s charge, and claiming that “Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology.” (They would say that, wouldn’t they?)

As  has often happened with Trump’s twitter stoms, the politically incorrect truth was later found in the borderline crazy outbursts.

According to a leaked memo posted on Facebook’s internal message board titled “We Have a Problem With Political Diversity”,  which was published by the New York Times, a Facebook senior engineer,  Brian Amerige, supported Trump’s allegation, writing “we are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views” and shockingly admitted that “we claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology. We throw labels that end in *obe and *ist at each other, attacking each other’s character rather than their ideas.”

Anyone who has been shadow – banned by Facebook, as have the owner of this blog and many of his friends (not extreme right nuts jobs as ‘liberals’ often describe them, but classical liberals, who love free speech and diversity of ideas.

Amerige’s indictment of Facebook’s authoritarian – liberal “mono-culture” continues:

We do this so consistently that employees are afraid to say anything when they disagree with what’s around them  politically.​ HR has told me that this is not a rare concern, and I’ve personally gotten over a hundred messages to that effect. Your colleagues are afraid because they know that they — not their ideas — will be attacked. They know that all the talk of “openness to different perspectives” does not apply to causes of “social justice,” immigration, “diversity”, and “equality.” On this issues, you can either keep quiet or sacrifice your reputation and career.

“These are not fears without cause” Amerige continues, adding another stunning revelation about the social media giant’s  biased culture, “Because we tear down posters welcoming Trump supporters. We regularly propose removing Thiel from our board because he supported Trump. We’re quick to suggest firing people who turn out to be misunderstood, and even quicker to conclude our colleagues are bigots. We have made “All Lives Matter” a fireable offense. We put Palmer Luckey through a witch hunt because he paid for anti-Hillary ads. We write each other ad-hoc feedback in the PSC tool for having “offensive” ideas. We ask HR to investigate those who dare to criticize Islam’s human rights record for creating a “non inclusive environment.” And they called me a transphobe when I called out our corporate art for being politically radical.

In other words, the official policy run by Facebook’s management of not toleratiing and where possible suppressing opposition to the company’s Cultural Marxist ideology is not tolerated. In other words Facebook uses fascist tactics to enforce its progressive public stance.

Amerige wasn’t alone in attacking Silicon Valley’s liberal bias, and as the NYT reports, since the post went up, “more than 100 Facebook employees have joined Mr. Amerige to form an online group called FB’ers for Political Diversity.” The aim of the initiative, according to Mr. Amerige’s memo, is to create a space for ideological diversity within the company.

The group’s formation has upset other Facebook employees (those who identify as Zuckerber’s arse kissers maybe,) who said its online posts were offensive to minorities (although none of the posts referred specifically to any minorities,). One engineer, who claimed anonymity for fear of retaliation, said several people had lodged complaints with their managers about FB’ers for Political Diversity and were told that it had not broken any company rules. It is of course hypocritical of Facebook to claim the moral high ground as the upholder of liberal values when Zuckerberg, personally, and his top management team operate a culture of fear to deny employees right to express their own opinions in private.

According to numerous reports the activity is a rare sign of organized dissent within Facebook “over the company’s largely liberal workplace culture.” While the new group is just a sliver of Facebook’s work force of more than 25,000, the company’s workers have in the past appeared less inclined than their peers at other tech companies to challenge leadership, and most have been loyalists to its chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg.

Within Facebook, we hear, employees have argued over the decisions to ban certain accounts while allowing others. At staff meetings some workers have repeatedly asked for more guidance on what content the company disallows, and why.

The dispute over employees’ political ideology arose a week before Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, is scheduled to testify at a Senate hearing about social media manipulation in elections. A team helping Ms. Sandberg get ready for the hearing next Wednesday has warned her that some Republican lawmakers may raise questions about Facebook and biases.

In May, Facebook announced that former Senator Jon Kyl, an Arizona Republican, would lead an inquiry into allegations of anticonservative bias on the social network, where new employees supposedly go through training that describes how to have respectful conversations about politics and diversity while complying with company policy.

America’s Liberal Left Enforcing The Fascist Ideals They Preach Staunchly Against?

Last week,White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Red Hen restaurant in Virginia because the owner, a pussy hat wearing liberal feminist, did not want to serve anyone who worked for the Trump administration.

In a separate incident Protesters swarmed around Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s home on Friday. Florida’s Attorney General was confronted and heckled at a showing of a Mr. Rogers documentary.

The liberal left  likes to claim it is the side that espouses tolerance, acceptance, and love. That apparently only extends as far as those who identify with the politics of the Obamas, Hillary Clinton and half the shyster lawyers in Washington and Zero Talents in Hollywood and their politics of hypocrisy, however. In a news clip that reeked of practicing double standards and intolerant, extremist bullying to “stand up” against “fascist” ideals, Rep. Maxine Waters called for for those within the Trump administration to face harassment, all for doing their job:

Sarah Sanders, a paying customer to the Red Hen was forced out of the restaurant merely for her political affiliation. Sanders – or her party – did not cause a scene or ruckus to merit being booted out. Sanders was merely removed for the “offense” of working for the Trump administration.  Of the incident, co-owner of the Red Hen, Stephanie Wilkinson said:

This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.

Wilkinson also said she “would have done the same thing again”.

The Red Hen and Wilkinson conveniently hid behind the veil of morality to claim their “just” decision to enforce their own intolerance upon a member of the Trump administration. Sanders and her group, of course, took the high road, and left politely without causing any drama when asked to leave, the true definition of going high, when they go low – the (hypocritical) mantra of the Obama family.

Showing no shame, protesters targeted Kirstjen Nielsen, Homeland Security Secretary, at her home last week as well. A group of about two dozen protesters swarmed around Nielsen’s house, blasting audio of crying immigrant children and chanting “No justice, no sleep”.

As Nielsen left her home, the protesters hurled vitriolic insults at her: “History will remember you,” one shouted. “You belong in the Hague! You’re a modern-day Nazi!” another jeered.

In both cases liberals across the USA praised the persecution of of these people and callede for incresingly violent action against Trump supporters. How different their attitude is in these cases from the response of the same group to the bakers who refused to make cakes celebrating same sex marriage, having knowingly been targeted by gay activists, and having politely explained that to put a campaign slogan for same sex marriage on the cake would violate their religious principles and having recommended other bakers who would have no such reservations.

It is time we confronted these illiberal bastards with the truth of what they are, they are not liberals but fascists, and the worst kind of fascists at that. The hypocrites try to claim their authoritarian behaviour os motivated by virtuous principles.
