In America, we’re supposed to respect and celebrate minorities, sometimes even just for being a minority. The tinier the minority, the more we need to respect and celebrate them. It’s understandable — it’s tough being a minority, of any kind. No one wants to be on the smaller team.
But there’s one tiny, miniscule minority in America that nobody talks about. They’re outnumbered and outgunned. They’re almost invisible. They’re probably the smallest and most oppressed minority in America.
They’re Silicon Valley Trump supporters.
Don’t believe me? We picked 10 big and famous technology companies and took a look at their dollar contributions to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s campaigns.
Just take a look at the statistics below, all acquired from the Center for Responsive Politics’ OpenSecrets.org:
Alphabet (Google) employees gave over $1.3 million to Hillary Clinton, but barely $20,000 to Donald Trump:
That’s 60 times more to one candidate than the other. Out of nearly 70,000 Alphabet/Google employees, only 26 donated to Trump. That’s 0.04% of the Alphabet/Google workforce. The number who gave to Hillary was so long that we gave up counting. (If we made a graph, the “Trump” column wouldn’t just be small, it wouldn’t be seen at all.)
Unsurprisingly, Google bigwig Eric Schmidt wanted to personally help Hillary win in 2016, but we only found out thanks to WikiLeaks.
Over at Facebook, employees gave over $400,000 to Hillary, but not even $4000 to Trump:
That’s 100x more money going to Hillary Clinton from Facebook than to Donald Trump.
Out of over 15,000 Facebook employees, only six gave to Donald Trump’s campaign over the entire course of the 18-month campaign. Six. Not sixty, not sixteen, but only six. They’re about 0.04% of the Facebook workforce.
You have more fingers on your hands than Facebook has employees that gave money to Trump.
Over $100,000 to Hillary from Twitter, but not even $4000 to Trump. Here’s Apple:
That’s more than $550,000 to Hillary Clinton, but not even $5000 to The Donald.
Apple employees gave 131x more money to Hillary Clinton than they did to Donald Trump. For every $1 an Apple employee gave to Trump, $131 went to Hillary Clinton.
Out of a whopping 115,000 Apple employees, a measly 24 donated to Trump. That’s 0.02% of their workforce.
Jeff Bezos’ Amazon — Bezos also owns the big league anti-Trump Washington Post — isn’t much better:
While they gave $330,000 to Hillary, Amazon employees only gave about $3000 to Donald Trump. They gave 106x more to Hillary than Trump.
Microsoft employees only gave 22x as much to Hillary as they did to Trump, which makes them relatively unbiased for the tech industry. But what does it say about Big Tech that giving 22x more to one candidate than the other makes you one of the least biased companies?
PayPal employees gave 41x more to Hillary than Donald Trump:
Even though PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel has been a big Silicon Valley Trump supporter, out of nearly 16,000 PayPal employees, just 4 gave money to Donald Trump’s campaign. That’s an almost invisible 0.02% of the PayPal workforce.
The number of employees who gave to Hillary Clinton — much like for Google, Facebook, and the rest of these companies — was so long that we gave up counting them.
Oracle, beating out Microsoft, only (“only”) gave 13x more to Hillary than Trump:
Tesla employees gave 78x more to Hillary than Trump. Donald Trump only got $250 from Tesla Motors:
And here’s the worst one of them all, Netflix:
Netflix employees gave over $80,000 to Hillary Clinton, while Donald Trump only got $450 from them. That means Netflix gave a staggering 180x more money to Hillary than they did to Trump.
All the people in the tech industry could probably form a medium-sized country, but all the people in the tech industry who support Donald Trump would have trouble forming a small town. Their Hillary-loving co-workers wouldn’t.

With all this in mind, why aren’t we hearing more from the media about the plight of Silicon Valley Donald Trump supporters?
Why aren’t we hearing more about how the industry that controls so many aspects of our lives and sources of information, the industry that constantly wants to change our lives completely in new, unpredictable ways, is lacking diversity — that is to say, political diversity?
Even though Trump won the presidential election with the help of nearly 63 million Americans who voted for him and $68 million in small individual contributions to his campaign, almost none of those votes or dollars came from Silicon Valley.
But a lot of votes and dollars went out of Silicon Valley into Hillary Clinton’s pocket. Based on our sample of 10 big tech companies above, I would guess Trump supporters are outnumbered at least 100 to 1 in the technology industry at large.
Not 2 to 1.
Not 5 to 1.
Not 10 to 1.
But 100 to 1.
Silicon Valley Trump supporters have been openly abused, assaulted, and banned from their professional networks over their political views. Being such a tiny minority, it’s no wonder they’re treated so poorly by the majority of left-wing tech workers who are #WithHer.
While Donald Trump won 57% of the Electoral College votes and 46.0% of the popular vote — Hillary Clinton won 48.1%, beating him by +2 points — the results in Silicon Valley, in Califorina, were much worse for Trump supporters.
In Santa Clara county, which is most of Silicon Valley proper, Hillary beat Trump by +53 points, taking 73.4% of the vote to Trump’s 20.8%.
In next-door San Mateo county, she beat him by +58 points, taking over 3/4 of the vote while Trump didn’t even reach 20%.
And in San Francisco, where Twitter, Uber, and other tech companies have their headquarters, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by an incredible +76 points. She took 85.6% of the vote to Donald Trump’s tiny 9.3%.

Why is no one speaking up for this tiny minority of Trump-loving tech workers?
Well, I am.
Here at GotNews and at our clickbait-media-killing start-up WeSearchr, we love Trump, and we’re not afraid to say so.
We don’t link social-justice-warrior-overrun Wikipedia, we link to Vox Day’s Infogalactic.
I’m no longer on Twitter, but I am on Andrew Torba’s Gab — which is way better, big league. WeSearchr posts on Gab every single day.
I have plans to build many, many more companies, and I’ll need an army of programmers and other techies to do it. If you’re a Silicon Valley Trump supporter, you have my respect and my admiration. Try not to be too high-energy, lest you get fired, abused, assaulted, or worse. Keep on keeping on! And in the meantime, get in touch with me too at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s Make Technology Great Again together — and then, you’ll be able to wear that MAGA hat to work every day.
Stay tuned for more.
Our researchers shut down Facebook’s biased left-wing trending news team. They discovered never before seen footage of a young Barack Obama whining about white privilege in Kenya. They debunked and destroyed Hillary Clinton’s narco baby mama Alicia Machado, who quit giving interviews because of us. If you’d like to hire our research team, email us at email@example.com.
