Google’s Engineer Blake Lemoine calls Marsha Blackburn a ‘terrorist’ ‘thug’ defending censoring her campaign ads on social media

A leaked email involving a senior software engineer at Google reveals a desire to censor Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn and her run for the U.S. Senate. In fact, Blake Lemoine wrote in the email that Blackburn’s op-ed on Big Tech should not be reason to “negotiation with terrorists” later clarifying that “thug” was an okay adjective to use.

In an email thread dated June 19, 2018, Lemoine, a senior software engineer, commented Blackburn’s Fox News op-ed, also published in June. While other employees called the op-ed “hilarious” and said that Republicans were “tribalists focused on stirring up outrage to maintain power,” Lemoine’s comments were much more hostile.

In his email, Lemoine said, “We certainly shouldn’t acquiesce to the theatrical demands of a legislator who makes political hay by intentionally reducing the safety of the people who she claims to protect. I’m not big on negotiation with terrorists.”

Breitbart reported the news.

Another Google employee expressed concern over calling a congresswoman a terrorist, Lemoine said that he’d be “willing to go with ‘thug’ as a compromise.”

He said, in his defense, “This is a woman who passed a bill that killed people and is trying to use her passage of that bill to intimidate people. It’s clear to me that “do what I say or I’ll pass more bills like this one” is the implicit message.”

Lemoine stands strong that she should have been censored on Twitter. “She’s a lying liar who lies and Twitter treats her like one,” he wrote.

Lemoine has also written extensively on Medium, and in one piece he wrote, “Some people are toxic and need to be cleared away so that our civilization can function properly.”

While this was in context of why society needs police, the sentiment is disturbing coming from someone who is in charged of search ranking on Google.

“Conservatives believe that cities are filled with degenerate and violent animals,” he writes.

In an interview published with University of Louisiana’s blog, he said, “Machine learning, natural language processing, algorithm analysis and design, programming languages, information retrieval and database design are all directly relevant to my job.”

Blackburn is a popular pro-life House Rep in a heated battle with the former governor Phil Bredesen for Bob Corker’s seat in the Senate. The polls have been back and forth, showing each ahead of the other before the next poll; therefore, it’s fair to call this race a toss-up.
