The book “The Manipulators: Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Big Tech’s War on Conservatives” by Peter Hasson provides interesting insights into the ways in which Google employees have expended the company’s resources in anti-Trump resistance events.

The author Hasson has reportedly gathered several key pieces of information validating the fact that Google employees have used internal company channels, office space, and company time for organizing a myriad of anti-Trump protests.

“If your stomach turns when you consider a Trump presidency, I urge you not to let this moment pass quietly,” wrote a Google employee in an email addressing coworkers to join an anti-Trump protest in San Francisco ten days after Trump was elected to the office.

Back in March 2017, a Google employee hosted a resistance event opposing President Trump wherein people were asked to send anti-Trump postcards, which was also allegedly held on Google’s premises.

What’s more, in an email regarding the aforementioned event, the employee revealed that a room was reserved at the San Francisco headquarters of Google for all the employees to gather and fill out the anti-Trump postcards.

As outlined in an excerpt from the book, the invitation for the said resistance event also included an anti-Trump activists’ mission statement that read:

“We the people, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man in his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him—and against us—means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House in pink slips, all informing Donnie that he’s fired. Each of us—every protestor from every march, each congress-calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer—if each one of us writers even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, well: you do the math.”

Taking a jibe at the alleged involvement of Russia in the 2016 election, the mission statement’s conclusion read— “No alternative fact or Russian translation will explain away our record-breaking, officially-verifiable, warehouse-filling flood of fury.”

From the email and the call to protest, one could derive several interesting observations such as the fact that Google employees were using the company’s work email address to plan and organize such events, and that the company’s premises were also being used as a venue for the protest.
