Leaked Audio: Google Wants to 'Steer' Conservative Movement Away From Nationalism

Mar. 08, 2019

A senior Google director of US public policy defended the company's ongoing sponsorship of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in leaked audio of what is believed to be a company-wide internal meeting, according to Breitbart's Allum Bokhari (who in September published a leaked recording of Google execs panicking over Hillary Clinton's election defeat).

According to the report, Google senior director of US public policy, Adam Kovacevich, tells employees that the company "should be involved" with CPAC because a majority of company employees "would want to steer conservatives and Republicans more towards a message of liberty and freedom and away from the more sort of nationalistic incendiary comments, nativist comments and things like that."
The comments came to light in leaked audio files allegedly of a company-wide meeting at Google, part of which is now exclusively reported by Breitbart News. Another part of the transcript was released last Friday on Tucker Carlson Tonight, while further snippets revealing Google’s funding of establishment conservative think-tanks were published by the left-leaning tech magazine Wired in December.

The alleged meeting took place in the wake of Google’s sponsorship of CPAC in 2018, which triggered an internal rebellion from left-wing employees of the tech giant. Breitbart News exclusively reported on the revolt at the time, in which radical left-wingers inside Google accused CPAC of “ethno-nationalism” and “hate.” -Breitbart
In his attempt to justify the company's CPAC involvement, Kovacevich suggested that the conference has a "dual identity" - one being a "premier gathering" of a "whole swath of conservatives" which include "national security conservatives, economic conservatives, libertarians, the Log Cabin Republicans, deficit hawks, small government advocates."

The other side of CPAC is a "sideshow circus-like element" in which outrageous figures are invited to say "incendiary and offensive things, I think in order to draw more attention and controversy to the conference."
