Eric Schmidt - Google CEO and Bilderberg Conference Attendee

Google chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt has been caught on camera entering the Bilderberg conference in Germany.

For those that aren’t aware, Bilderberg is a supposedly open group, formed so Europe and the US could work towards promoting “Atlanticism” - a better understanding of each other’s respective cultures. The list of members and conference participants is made public to avoid the perception that it’s some kind of freemason organization, a perception that came to the forefront when it became clear that the powerful people attending would not be sharing what the conferences were actually regarding.

So Schmidt went a conference, nothing too crazy about that. Perhaps a little odd, as we don’t know what they spoke about, but he should be able to chat with his powerful buddies without fear of conspiracists and the media calling foul. No one did call foul when he attended the meeting a few years ago.  This time is different though, this time the most powerful man at one of the most powerful online companies arrived with Swedish banker, Jacob Wallenberg.

After a video of the two entering the conference surfaced on YouTube, the Google-owned video sharing site removed the video and threatened the account owner with a ban over alleged racism. The racism was alleged (by YouTube) concerning a popular video mocking President Obama. The video had been up and active for some time, and the user was even given privileges and awards from YouTube and its community.

Personally, I have no idea what to make of this bizarre attempt at censorship, but I don’t like it. One thing I’ve learned doing this blog is that the insight in the comment section is often more logical and less biased than my own, so feel free to share your views on this.

  1. Sad to say, you don't need to believe in wild conspiracy theories to explain the status quo - the simple, plain fact is, we are ruled (illegitimately) by elites - who are parasites.
    Their will is enforced by thugs - armies, cops, etc - and we are brainwashed (and if that fails) coerced into obeying the "laws" they arbitrarily set.
    The Bilderberg club is just another club of the elite.
    The problem is we legitimize the right of an elite to rule. As for all the statist arguments, on close examination none of them hold up.
    But no room for that here ! Just sharing a few thoughts...

  4. Ah, I agree with Austin. It's annoying when we can't get information we deserve because higher ups have the final say.

  5. I don't think it's logical or sensible to assume all conspiracy theories are crazy or fanciful. Seems to make a lot of sense to me that the most powerful people in the world would meet up to secure and discuss ways to further their hold on the power they have. Centralizing the power is a good way to protect it and make it stronger.

  10. Censoring is quite annoying to the person curious on the subject, but sometimes it's best that the public doesn't know.

  14. I watched documentaries, and read articles on the Bilderbergs before. Secret society stuff - it's been around a while. Any kind of censorship is wrong, in my opinion, but sometimes you just have to use commonsense to figure why a company like that would censor this guy. I imagine Google's in bed with the Bilderbergs and their constituents.
