Republican senator fires off at tech giant
Sen. Ted Cruz branded tech giant Google the “most dangerous company on the face of the planet” in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.
During a campaign event for the Georgia Senate runoff election, Cruz outlined issues to the outlet, highlining alleged interference in America’s elections.
Cruz said the search engine stands as the “single greatest threat” to “free and fair elections.”
The Republican senator gave his opinion on which company poses the most significant danger:
“I think hands down Google is the most dangerous company on the face of the planet.”
“Google is the most dangerous because it’s the biggest by far.”
“It is the most powerful by far,” Cruz added.
“It controls the vast majority of searches people do.”

Cruz referenced a hearing for the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution in 2019 where he invited psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein to discuss big tech’s manipulation abilities.
Epstein found that “Google, through manipulated search outcomes, shifted over 2.6 million votes in 2016 to the Democrats.”
“And Dr. Epstein is not a Republican. He is a liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton but is outraged to see that kind of abuse of power. Google is clearly the most dangerous.”
Big Tech is ALL IN for the radical left.
It’s shameful and it must end.

Neon Nettle reported in 2019:
Google had biased search results that impacted the 2018 midterm elections and possibly costing Republicans three congressional districts.
Epstein revealed that tens of thousands of votes were pushed towards the democrats in three key congressional races as a result of Google’s built-in bias.
Epstein and a team at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (AIBRT) analyzed Google searches relating to three highly competing congressional races in Southern California.
Cruz later asserted that “Twitter is the most brazen.”
“We just recently had a hearing where Jack Dorsey testified with a beard that looked like he had crawled out from under a bridge,” Cruz said.
In October last year, Cruz blasted the three Big Tech bosses during their testimonies before the Senate.
Cruz roasted Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for censoring stories from the New York Post that exposed potential large-scale corruption involving Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
Cruz spoke of the hearing, saying:
“I asked Mr. Dorsey at that hearing, ‘Who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what we’re allowed to read?’”
“Look, Twitter brazenly censored the New York Post when it ran stories about Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden’s corruption concerning China, concerning Ukraine, and Russia, and they just silenced it.”
“Not only did they prevent you and I from circulating those stories, for two weeks, they banned the New York Post.”
“The New York Post is not some fly-by-night organization. It is the newspaper with the fourth-highest circulation in the country. It was founded by Alexander freakin’ Hamilton,” Cruz said.
Cruz later said that although Facebook was “highly problematic,” it was more forgiving than the other platforms.
“I will give some degree of credit that Mark Zuckerberg at least acknowledges the need to protect free speech,” Cruz said.
“I think he’s benefited because Twitter and Google are so rotten that even though Facebook’s pretty bad, just saying free speech is important makes him appear markedly better than his rivals, but all three are very serious concerns.”
