Tech had a secret plan to infiltrate and destroy conservatism from within — and its first target is everyone who opposes open borders.
It’s like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had a secret weapon… and it was doing the dirty work for him.
Last year Google sponsored CPAC, the top annual gathering of conservatives which draws thousands of mostly young activists from across the country.
It’s the top event on the grassroots’ political calendar. A good speech there can make or break careers, even launch a politician to the Republican presidential nomination.
And Google bets that its money can shut up everyone who wants to close the border.
A secret audio recording reveals that Google wanted to use its financial heft to silence anyone who believes in controlling our borders.
Adam Kovacevich, Google’s senior director of U.S. policy, explained why the ultra-liberal company would want to try to take over conservatism from the inside-out.
“The Republican Party, and I think conservatism in general, is also going through a lot of internal debates about what it should be,” he said. “And I think that’s one that we should be involved in.”
The Google exec said that the information titan would “probably want to steer conservatives and Republicans more towards a message of liberty and freedom”—and in the language they speak in Silicon Valley, that means one thing: Open Borders.

Google should do everything it can to silence “the more nationalistic, incendiary, nativist comments and things like that,” he added.
The $280 billion company—which runs two-thirds of all web searches—wants to shut up conservatives who dare to say we must stop the flow of drugs, gangs, human trafficking, and illegal immigrants across the southern border into every community in the country.
Google wants to deport immigration patriots from the GOP.
Silicon Valley’s tech empire already controls the Democrats. Now Google admits that it wants to decide—in Kovacevich’s words—the “position of the party” for the Republicans, as well.
The good news is that things didn’t quite go as Google planned. When a left-wing radio host started shilling for open borders—and claiming that illegal immigrants have a lot with conservatives—at last year’s CPAC, delegates erupted in disgust.
They even started chanting “Build that wall!”

This year’s CPAC only had one event dedicated to immigration: “Nationhood and the Border Crisis,” with Senator Ted Cruz and National Review editor Rich Lowry—and the grassroots say that’s not enough.
Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin said “the most important issue we face is immigration and we need to be talking about it for more than one panel for 20 minutes.”
She also called out leftist groups like the SPLC and Van Jones’ Color of Change that try to “criminalize mainstream conservatives, anti-jihad groups, and immigration hawks as ‘hate groups’ and push us out of the public square.”
She can add Google to that list.
Google has another reason for backing CPAC: cold, hard cash.
“Some of those media outlets are actively pushing the storyline that Google is biased against conservatives,” Kovacevich said. “If that notion becomes accepted among conservative and Republican policymakers, that could be harmful to our mission.”
Then again, trying to keep Republicans from talking about immigration—which a new poll shows is voters’ top issue for the 2020 presidential election—could help prevent Donald Trump from being re-elected next year.
“It’s disappointing that the issue most closely tied to President Trump’s election is limited to a single conversation,” said Matthew Sussis of the Center for Immigration Studies.
CIS said it is “equally disappointing” that CPAC would only tackle illegal immigration, not the massive amount of legal immigrants coming into the United States.
“The crisis at the border is serious and certainly worthy of discussion, but the United States is currently taking in over one million legal permanent residents every year and nearly one in seven U.S. residents is now an immigrant. Shouldn’t that be discussed, too?”

“Many of the events at CPAC this year…seem intended to inspire young conservatives,” Sussis concluded. “If that is indeed a goal of CPAC, then perhaps its organizers, such as ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp, should bring immigration, an issue near and dear to many Millennial and Gen-Z conservatives, back into the spotlight.”
“After all, it worked for President Trump,” he wrote.
No wonder Google wants it hushed up.
