Google shows what ‘Silicon Valley progressivism’ means: being the Left’s enforcers in the culture wars, in exchange for dispensation for economic sins.
Science-based thinking is a valuable tool: it tells us what we can do. But it cannot say a word about what we ought to do.
The old bigots are swiftly aging out of influence, while the already meager influence of the new racists, out of all proportion to the attention they have attracted, is continuing to wane.
Artwork mocking Google for its oppressive censorship is popping up all over the Los Angeles area, near Google’s office in Venice, California.
The Google memo controversy could tear up the implicit social contract we’ve all accepted with the big technology companies to whom we entrust our data.
A myriad of distinguished professors and social scientists have already confirmed what James Damore wrote in his Google memo: men and women are measurably different.
It’s not yet a week since James Damore’s internal Google memo was published by the media, but thanks to them, his name is forever tied to sexism.
This indicates that not just the gentler enforcement mechanisms of the current regime, but in fact the structure of the regime itself, is breaking down.
Ultimately, federal law places every employer and employee in the same no-win situation as Google: lawsuit if you don’t have enough protected class employees, lawsuit if you try overtly to hire them.
James Damore can present a prima facie case of illegal retaliation from Google: he engaged in protected activity by opposing several discriminatory practices, and was fired from his job.
To be ready for dictatorship, people have to embrace its habits and practices voluntarily, or at least show little resistance. Google is doing its part.
James Damore’s firing surely serves as a warning to anyone who might subvert the utterly inflexible pieties of modern progressivism.
When Brooke Baldwin paraphrased the memo as ‘essentially saying well I really don’t like women anywhere near a computer’ not once, but twice, Mary Katharine Ham had to explain the irony.
Imagine the outrage and slew of hurt feelings that ‘Straight Outta Compton’ would have elicited if the Internet had been around when N.W.A. was being highly problematic.
Read the infamous Google memo about the tech giant’s crippling bias and illegal discrimination that got a whistle-blowing scientist fired.
Google’s reaction, first condemning the memo and then firing its author, confirms in the most unfortunate terms fears about the company’s ideological ‘echo chamber.’
