Search Engines:

  • Lycos - Yes they're still around and independent from Bing & Google.
  • DuckDuckGo - privately uses Yahoo (Bing). Has "bang" options.
  • StartPage - privately uses Google.
  • searX - a metasearch engine, aggregating the results of other search engines while not storing information about its users.
  • Bing - A full array of features and a rewards system you can sign up for.
  • Ecosia - The search engine that plants trees with its ad revenue. (Bing)

DDG is cucked. Stop thinking it's a good option. SearX and Lycos are probably the only solid options in that list.

Shame about Ask Jeeves.


[–] ZYX321 1 points 13 points (+14|-1) ago 

Define cucked.

Startpage and searx suffer from terrible and unpredictable latencies.

Bing tracks you.

Bing via DDG using the "!b" is an option.

See qwant.com as another alternative engine.

You really don't have to use the !b bang option since DDG uses yahoo, who is powered by Bing. I guess it might save some latency but not much.

One the main page I say that we know who MS is as a company, they're after the almighty $. So I'm fine with Bing as long as they don't censor like Google is plus Microsoft rewards.

Idk why they brought up bing either...hmmm....

I have a couple more to add to that list:

yippy and IxQuick (Startpage).

Also if you can use a free proxy from this list.


[–] Gorillion 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

https://www.ixquick.com/eng/ is another. Uses google's engine. So you'll still get buttfucked on the wonked results I guess.

Censoring the truth. It gives them more power than the government.


[–] ardvarcus 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

"It gives (((them))) more power ..."


[–] vastrightwing 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago 

Google is an oligarch platform in the same political spectrum as FakeBook and Twitter. Search results are skewed, manipulated and censored, making the results as useful as FakeBook and CIA/CNN.

I imagine the code base is incredibly complex and the human labor very expensive to maintain the distorted results. Plus they are constantly "tweaking" the results to comply with the whims of changing politics by day and of multiple countries.

Silicon Valley is full of SJWs who can't wait to virtue signal.

The employees at Mozilla ran their CEO, the guy who invented javascript, out of the company. He now has the Brave Browser going.

As Yahoo was going down the drain years ago the employees helped block a Microsoft buyout. Not their stock options are worth shit and the company has been sold off in pieces.

The CEO of Snap Chat is a nutjob. The list goes on.

Gamergate told us what's going on.

Google Ideas aka Jigsaw runs the Institute for Strategic Dialogue which runs the Against Violent Extremism network which is staffed by "former" extremists. ISD is partnered with UNHCHR head and Jordanian prince Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein, New York mayor Bill de Blasio, and then-US Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

The ISD and European Commission run the FREE Initiative which defines "anti-multicultural nationalists" (that is, normal people) as "far-right" extremists http://thefreeinitiative.com/the-problem/ https://archive.is/9Xoc4 http://thefreeinitiative.com/about/ https://archive.is/SqZxV

Google and Facebook run Affinis Labs which claims to be fighting "trolls" but they really seem to be against any resistance to Islamist aggression.

Affinis Labs members include Quintan Wiktorowicz, Shahed Amanullah, and Wajahat Ali. https://www.facebook.com/affinislabs https://archive.is/Ib2CX

Quintan Wiktorowicz invited a known Hamas front to speak to British Muslim teenagers. https://counterjihadreport.com/2013/05/28/quintan-wiktorowicz-architect-of-us-counter-extremism-strategy/ https://archive.is/qHZzk

Quietly, behind the scenes, the Muslim Brotherhood is enforcing censorship of all U.S. government training about Islam and the forces of Islamic jihad. Under the co-opted direction of National Security Council official, Quintan Wiktorowicz, key Cabinet Departments, including Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State are purging their curriculum materials of any references about Islam that their Muslim Brotherhood advisors find objectionable. In effect, the national security policy of the U.S. government is being brought into compliance with Islamic law on slander. https://counterjihadreport.com/2012/06/05/jihads-willing-executioners/ https://archive.is/mf7AU

Shahed Amanullah was part of the Muslim Brotherhood team that convinced the DHS to censor its training materials in 2007. http://www.globalmbwatch.com/2008/05/04/analysis-dhs-memo-supports-muslim-brotherhood-influence-counter-terrorism-language/ https://archive.is/ZHPBj

Wajahat Ali was a Center for American Progress propagandist who wrote a report denouncing national security analysts for "Islamophobia." http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/103268/silencing-critics-islamic-extremism-daniel-greenfield https://archive.is/tOxwC

Wajahat Ali's editor at CAP was Faiz Shakur, an accused Hamas fundraiser who was brought into the Democratic Party by Nancy Pelosi and appointed to CAP by John Podesta, who himself was appointed to CAP by George Soros and Morton Halperin. http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/133189/nancy-pelosi-hires-former-terrorist-fundraiser-daniel-greenfield https://archive.is/LwlJk

The Google/Jigsaw team includes Institute of Peace fellow Farah Pandith who has been caught promoting the Muslim Brotherhood.

Pandith was listed among the participants of the March 2006 conference Muslim Communities Participating in Society: A Belgian-U.S. Dialogue in which American members of the Muslim Brotherhood met with members of the Federation of European Muslim Youth Organizations, a known financier of Taibah International. Taibah's Bosnia branch is a designated terrorist organization. https://web.archive.org/web/20061231001122/http://www.usip.org/muslimworld/projects/muslim_youth/brussels_report.html https://archive.is/htXjC http://www.globalmbwatch.com/2009/06/25/breaking-news-new-us-special-representative-announced-for-muslim-outreach/ https://archive.is/QNXTz http://old.post-gazette.com/pg/05363/629642.stm https://archive.is/68QF0

ISD runs the Strong Cities Network, an explicitly Muslim organization that was announced by the UN General Assembly. http://www.sott.net/article/303450-Strong-Cities-Network-Did-the-UN-just-install-a-global-police-force https://archive.is/X77uZ

Google/Jigsaw director Jared Cohen is "a loose can[n]on. GOOGLE is trying to stop his entry into Gaza now because the dude is like scorched earth." What was he doing in Gaza? http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1snh6n2 https://archive.is/3HH7p

Google/Jigsaw's team includes:

  • Holly Jacobs, Cyber Civil Rights Initiative
  • Rose Eveleth, the person responsible for getting Tim Hunt fired in the "Shirtgate" incident
  • "Feminista Jones"
  • Randi Harper, professional online abuser
  • Anita Sarkeesian, con artist
  • Zoe Quinn, professional online abuser
  • Jamia Wilson of Women, Action, and Media (WAM)

GREAT post. hopefully it'll get more exposure.

Skewing public perception and opinion. Technology must never be allowed to be used against us like this. Instead of deleting search results, like how books were destroyed in Fahrenheit 451, they simply redefine everything, like newspeak in 1984. It's bad enough that google works for the government to spy on us. Now they've been doing this.

This is very sad.. Why censor the truth? Google has gotten it wrong


[–] vastrightwing 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

The administrators of Google are oligarchs with the one world global order nonsense ideas. They don't care about truth or what deplorables want.


[–] Gorillion 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Alphabet is their real name. Google is like a subsidiary arm now.


[–] Voopin__Voopin 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

i recently read assange's "google is not what it seems" which was either an excerpt from a book, or a standalone article written by Assange. (i forget which)

I delayed reading it for the longest time because lazy, but once i read it, HOLY SHIT. Google is more of a "world politics and world fuckery" type organisation, as opposed to merely a search engine. It's a really good read, sorry i dont have the link handy.

@Needlestack might have it, as she posts lots of stuff in /v/wikileaks

They think Google is just not doing the research, no it's full of libtards and they will do any thing to virtual signel as hard as they can.
