The 2016 Undernews

You can use Google Prompts to find out what questions the public is asking. For example, just type in "Is " followed by the name of a celebrity. Let's find out what the Undernews is about 2016 Presidential Timbers. (Sorry about getting screenshots to display as different sizes.)

Republicans






Democrats




Boring! How can anybody take you seriously as Presidential Timber, Cory, if you can't generate any better Undernews than vague questions about your white girlfriend in Brooklyn? Check out the #1 questions for Hillary and Biden, Mayor Booker, and then get to work.

























There are also "Does " prompts, such as

It's impressive how clean Cory Booker is.

I wonder if he's really a good guy..

Maybe, but it isn't really surprising that the internet doesn't have a lot of dirt so far on the mayor of a totally inconsequential shithole.

Lol, why you mad tho?

Surely this is ripe for a concerted effort of disinfo. A group asking over and over if Joe Biden is gay, for example, could push that to the top of the list thus subtly undermining his standing.

It's a lot easier to engage in disinfo from inside Google than from outside Google.

Just sayin' ...

Edward Snowden still doesn't pop up in Google autosuggest for me. I've tried through Tor, other anonymizing proxies and different geographical locations.

Bing.com's first read for "Is Cory Booker" is of course "Is Cory Booker Gay".

Ah Google, you be the best.

I'm surprised, "Is Corey Booker gay" isn't on his top ten.

Interesting where gay/homosexual doesn't show up. Google only partially de-gayed the prompt. It still suggests gay/homo for Uncloseted gays, Republicans and uncool democrats. Combine that with the shockingly absent gay for Cory Booker, and one might wonder if that's confirmation that he's gay.

Type 'Is Lindsay Graham' and the google helpfully provides 'Is Lindsay Graham a man or a woman' as the second option. hmmm. prolly just the name lindsay, though.

This is fun.

I like Keanu Reeves even tho he's not a great actor. Widely assumed or rumored to be gay, back in the day.

Tried "Is keanu reeves" and got married, Asian, immortal and dead. When I typed in "is keanu reeves g" I got girlfriend, getting fat, good looking and girlfriend died.

Goes to show that if you just shut up and keep on, you'll beat those gay rumors.

I think this is why none of the people you did the Google Undernews search for will win the Presidency. They have too much of a reputation for flakiness or craziness (deserved or undeserved).

Meanwhile, my Google Undernews search for the 45th President of the United States yields only:

"Is Jeff Sessions racist?"

"Is Jeff Sessions a millionaire?"

The first thing that comes up for you after Steve Sailer is Steve Sailer Racist, not that that is surprising, but clearly someone at Google has it in for you, they want to send you to the Death Camp of Tolerance :)

I don't get all the positive vibe in the press that Cory Booker gets. Maybe I'm not informed enough. Has Newark improved considerably since he got into office? If not, he's no different than the mayor of Detroit.

I'm surprised the lesbian rumours about you know who aren't in the list as a I was assuming hostile factions within the Democrats would be spreading them.

"Maybe, but it isn't really surprising that the internet doesn't have a lot of dirt so far on the mayor of a totally inconsequential shithole."

That will change once he gets elected to the Senate.

Seinfeld had an old routine where he said people thought he was gay because he's thin and neat. Paul Ryan seems to be an example.

The most surprisingly gay person I've read about recently is Maj. Gen. Edwin Walker, who was a leading segregationist/Bircher activist in the 1960s, and whom Lee Harvey Oswald tried to shoot a few months before Kennedy:

You are so right about the inside job. I worked at a medium size retail chain and we aquired a small competitor and then promoted the president of the small company to run the combined company. A co worker said he had heard this guy say the easiest way to destroy the parent company was to work for it.
The parent company is no longer in business. He ran her right to the ground, same thing I think the current president of the US is doing.

"Is Cory Booker gay?" Was the first hit for me. Very funny, Steve.

I wonder about that. He does kinda look like he didn't fully complete puberty.

Really Steve, this is naughty.

I just googled "is cory" and that's all I needed for "is cory booker gay".

Now, I'm all for running Cory Booker down, but--

Did google >truly< not give you the same result?

Somebody asked why we even know who Cory Booker is, and that's not the half of it. I've known who Cory Booker is ever since I had a print subscription to USNews (don't ask) circa 2004.

I mean, I think I've known who this kid is longer than I've known who the hell Barack Obama is. So something must be really wrong with him if he's still only Mayor of Newark.

Anyway, it's nice to zing him, and google too, but those of us with a bing homepage (I know) don't wanna get shown up by googlers when passing along these subtle off-Fool's Day ploys as gospel truth.

That, or google really has your number . . .

Is Marco Rubio circumcised?

Most likely yes.

Is Marco Rubio a Jewban?

He certainly acts like it.

I can imagine Marco Rubio at an MTV interview in 2016 having won the GOP nomination:

"Cut or uncut?"

I suppose a top return of "is Hillary Clinton Brazilian waxed?" is just slightly more creepy than "is Marco Rubio circumsized?". But not by much.

On second thought, it might reflect the media-hidden propensity of catholic hispanics toward anti-semitism, in which case it's less creepy and more indicative of collective delusion. I mean, yeah, Marco Rubio, crypto-Jew.

1. is Jesus god
2. is Jesus real
3. is Jesus black

Apparently, people are more interested in Jesus' skin color than whether or not his grace covers their sins and grants them and eternity in God's presence. I gotta say, that certainly renders more understandable the verse that goes "22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’".

I wonder if the query stat "is Jesus black" includes a hit from an IP address frequented by Trayvon Martin. And for added humor: if Jesus is black he ain't comin' back (cuz he's got at least three bench warrants).

I'm glad that I'm not the only one doing those Michelle Obama searches.

Conservative talk show hosts have been conspicuously silent about the fact that their sainted idol Ronald Reagan nominated Anthony Kennedy to the supreme court after kennedy's assault on traditional marriage.

"Is Obama gay" is #2 in his results.

"Is George Bush ga" results in "Is George Bush against gays." Can't get a much better confirmation of heterosexuality than that.

Drudge was dropping a lot of heavy hints about Obama's sexuality a while back.
