In a similarly damning move, Google has clearly engaged in an intentional cover-up of the story so it does not meet the public eye. Big League Politics conducted an investigation searching platforms to compare the story’s exposure across the web.
The search phrase “west point military cadets one week quarantine” was entered into both Google and a smaller search engine called DuckDuckGo. Similar phrases with changed wording such as “military cadets one week quarantine” were also used, producing similar results. Unlike Google and other large search engines, DuckDuckGo vows to never store the personal information of any user.
Images of the findings can be found below, with DuckDuckGo showing recently relevant articles on the top of the first page. Google, on the other hand, has nothing regarding West Point Academy’s recent policy until one clicks to the fourth page of the search engine, only to find a single article on the topic mid-page. Interestingly, Google props West Point Academy’s COVID-19 related website posts to the top results, whereas DuckDuckGo does not. Same search, two different stories.
Fittingly, Youtube is also throttling any content regarding the treatment of students at West Point. When searching on the video upload website BitChute, results involving reports on the topic are readily available. In stark contrast, upon thoroughly searching on Youtube, it appears the video is being censored there as well, with no results appearing even after utilizing Youtube’s advanced search filters. The phrase “west point academy quarantine” was entered and filtered for “Upload date.”
When examining the evidence, it is difficult to not conclude that Google has been engaging in yet another intentional censorship of news that doesn’t fit the narrative. This time, however, it is to suppress news of the draconian solitary confinement that our nation’s heroes-in-training, healthy West Point cadets, are being subjected to. We’ve read this book before. Some politicians have entertained the idea of breaking up big tech, with Republican Senator Josh Hawley (MO) recently unveiling a ‘Trust-Busting’ initiative. Whether big tech companies like Google and others will be held accountable remains to be seen.
