Big tech is remarkably liberal, at least on the surface. We don’t know – or care – if Jeff Bezos, like Steve Cook of Apple, is gay. But Bezos certainly makes a big deal of gay rights, so much so that when one of the eventual “winners”, Crystal City, Virginia, was courting Amazon for their second headquarters location, in addition to throwing billions in subsidies at Amazon, they hung a gay pride flag outside the meeting room.

Beyond the gay flags and google doodles, big tech spends billions influencing government policy and creating lefty media. And in order to fund this kind of spending, they'll do business with just about anyone. This shows up most clearly in the way that these companies deal with governments around the world. Saudi Arabia has one of the most repressive governments on earth, jailing, or killing, anyone who dares oppose the young ruler.

And let’s not forget that, while big tech has been a fierce opponent of Donald Trump, they bent over backwards to supply private data about their users to Barack Obama when he was president.

PRISM is a data share nightmare that cannot be ignored. This top-secret government program was continued and expanded by Obama in 2013. PRISM has made it possible for the U.S. Intelligence community to access and collect vast amounts of email data, audio and video chats, photographs, and other sensitive stored data – all generously provided to the government by nine different internet companies.

Citizen FourMicrosoft was the first company to share data with PRISM. It was revealed that Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Dropbox, and Apple had all given the Obama Administration direct access to user data.

Edward Snowden famously leaked the existence of PRISM back in May of 2013. Google, Facebook, Apple, and others immediately responded by denying having any knowledge of the PRISM program (even though it had been in operation since 2007).

Since Big Tech’s lies were revealed the CEOs of those companies have only continued to expand their enormous wealth. Meanwhile, the man who told the truth about it all has to continue to hide in Russia to escape the wrath of the US government.
