PINNED TO THE TOP OF THE HOMEPAGE 8/7/2017. SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWEST POSTS.
Yesterday we reported that a 10-page document penned by an unnamed Google engineer titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber” which criticized the company’s “left-leaning”, “anti-conservative” culture and called for replacing Google’s diversity initiatives with policies that encourage “ideological diversity” instead, led to angry outrage among fellow Google employees and Silicon Valley liberals. The document, published in its entirety by Gizmodo, quickly went “viral” both inside the company and within the broader Silicon Valley community.
The document’s author also wrote that employees with conservative political beliefs are discriminated against at Google and lamented about how “leftist” ideology is harmful. It argued that the company should have a more “open” culture where its viewpoint would be welcomed. The document said that improving racial and gender diversity is less important than making sure conservatives feel comfortable expressing themselves at work.
And, as of moments ago, the author of the memo – whose name has since been revealed as James Damore – has been fired.
I found the following Harvard University photo of a James Damore who is described as a Google software engineer.
It’s a shame that honesty is not appreciated by the scum at Google who make decisions that affect our lives so much.
