Skip to comments.Google: A Hive Of Hateful Progressivism

The Federalist has some takeaways from James Damores civil suit against Google, which he accuses of discriminating against white male conservatives. You gotta see this stuff to believe the corporate culture there. Excerpts:
In a section claiming Google tries to stifle conservative parenting styles, the suit reads: Google furnishes a large number of internal mailing lists catering to employees with alternative lifestyles, including furries, polygamy, transgenderism, and plurality, for the purpose of discussing sexual topics. The only lifestyle that seems to not be openly discussed on Googles internal forums is traditional heterosexual monogamy.
A footnote next to the word plurality adds: For instance, an employee who sexually identifies as a yellow-scaled wingless dragonkin and an expansive ornate building presented a talk entitled Living as a Plural Being at an internal company event.
The suit also includes a screenshot of the presentation on living as a plural being when the presenter is discussing how to address coworkers with multiple identities. Examples of not okay etiquette listed include addressing any one headmate in particular; were all listening!
You can see the screenshot. Living as a plural being. They actually had a company event to discuss the proper forms of address for people who believe they are both dragons and buildings.
This is the corporate culture of one of the most powerful companies in the world. But its not all silly. In fact, its scary as hell. More:
Discourage them all throughout the industry
If we really care about diversity in tech, we dont just need to chase serial offenders out of Google, we need to discourage them all throughout the industry, a lengthy internal post on Damore read. We should be willing to give a wink and a nod to other Silicon Valley employers over terminable offenses, not send the worst parts of tech packing with a smile
I will hurt you
Damores memo prompted another employee to post this quote: Im a queer-ass nonbinary trans person that is fucking sick and tired of being told to open a dialogue with people who want me dead. We are at a point where the dialogue we need to be having with these people is if you keep talking about this shit, i will hurt you.
Youre being blacklisted at companies outside Google
Google manager Adam Fletcher wrote in 2015 he would never hire conservatives he deemed hold hostile views. I will never, ever hire/transfer you onto my team, he wrote. Ever. I dont care if you are perfect fit or technically excellent or whatever. I will actively not work with you, even to the point where your team or product is impacted by this decision. Ill communicate why to your manager if it comes up.
Youre being blacklisted by people at companies outside of Google, he added. You might not have been aware of this, but people know, people talk. There are always social consequences.
Read the whole thing.
If thats not a hostile work environment, what on earth is?
Consider the power that Google has, and is acquiring more and more of as it strengthens its position as the primary gateway to knowledge and information. And this is the corporate culture at Google, this hive of hateful progressivism. I look forward to this trial, and hope that Damore doesnt settle with Google out of court. The world needs to know what kind of people are positioning themselves as gatekeepers.
I have switched to Duck Duck Go for search engine. If someone has a better please advise.
I use Bing.
In public, I’d call google “Haiti of the internet”. In private I’d use stronger language.
A lot of people there don't have clearly articulated political views. For many full time googlers their job at Google is just a continuation of college or sort of a sabbatical after graduation but before grad school. Any political views they express are just parroting what their sophomore victim's study prof inculcated into their mushy little brains. Often marriage (straight) or child birth or any other exposure to aspects of the real world result in radical shifts in political views and often lead to them quietly leaving the company.
wretched hive of scum and villainy
“Progressive” is a misnomer.
Another case of the left abusing language to dress up their nasty ideas and ideals.
The way they perverted the words GAY (meaning sexual pervert) and RIGHTS (meaning wants) and WOMEN’S HEALTH (meaning abortion)
and BUDGET CUTS (meaning a small reduction in an increase) and UNDOCUMENTED (for illegal aliens).
So called progressives may be liberal in the sense that they want a world without civility, rules, restraints on conduct, borders, morality or personal responsibility and accountability.
But their actions are regressive not progressive.
Their objectives are post-civilization.
It would be more appropriate to refer to them as destructionists instead of progressives.
Mozilla actively inflicts the same type of intolerance.
But the antichrist will need technology build-out to pull off his mission, won't he?
