Liberalism is all about identity politics and being some kind of victim. It does not matter what outrageous thing a liberal does, when it blows back on them, they are always the victim.
Google, the official search engine of the Democrat Party has been slammed over the last few weeks with the James Damore lawsuit. Damore was a Google engineer who was fired for pointing out that Google went overboard in its political correctness and its obsession that women be hired into tech, even though a lot of women choose careers other than tech. Damore argued that men and women are different and fewer women were interested in tech careers.
At far-left wing Google, that is heresy.
Damore would not back down. According to ARS Technica, he pressed his point of view and the fascists at Google pushed back:
The result was an intense backlash. “You’re a misogynist and a terrible person,” one Googler reportedly wrote to Damore in an email. “I will keep hounding you until one of us is fired. Fuck you.”
“If Google management cares enough about diversity and inclusion, they should, and I urge them to, send a clear message by not only terminating Mr. Damore, but also severely disciplining or terminating those who have expressed support” for his memo, another Googler wrote in an internal discussion forum.
In any sane company, the authors of those emails would have been disciplined. Instead, Damore was fired.
Damore filed suit against Google and the PR nightmare for Google began. Damore’s suit against Google is not the only one. Talk show host Dennis Prager has filed a law suit against Google/YouTube for censoring his videos.
So, what does a liberal group do when it is hit hard? It comes out crying, claiming it is the victim. And it recruits the official media arm of the Democrat Party, Gannett and USA Today to publish their claims.
The firing of Google engineer James Damore for suggesting men are more suited to technical roles than women has triggered a culture war inside the Internet giant, with some Google employees saying the company is not doing enough to protect them from a harassment campaign that has subjected them to hateful comments and violent threats.
These employees, many of whom volunteer as diversity advocates, say they’ve been targeted by some of their own coworkers for fighting to bring greater diversity to Google’s 78,000-plus staff of mostly white and Asian men.
Their personal information and comments expressed in internal company forums have been leaked to the public and published on far-right websites, leading to mistreatment by online vigilantes. What’s more, they say they’ve been subjected to doxing on 4Chan and Kiwi Farms after screenshots were included in the 161-page lawsuit Damore filed in January alleging Google discriminates against whites, conservatives and men.
As Google employees cry, and the slavish left wing media prints their story without question, they don’t want to mention how these people harassed Damore. According to PJ Media:
The lawsuit also alleges that Google employees were awarded bonuses for arguing against Damore’s views. In one example of this, a female employee was awarded a bonus for speaking out against the “wretched hive of scum and villainy” allegedly represented by Damore’s memo.
Email excerpts sent among Google employees after Damore’s memo went public also illustrated pervasive hostility towards conservatives.
“I intend to silence these views; they are violently offensive,” wrote senior engineer Colm Buckley in a message to his coworkers. He also wrote to coworkers that there are certain political views “which I do not want people to feel safe to share.”
In plain English, the left feels it is perfectly acceptable to silence views they disagree with. The left feels it is perfectly acceptable to discriminate against groups they do not like, such as whites, men and conservatives.
For real Americans, the Google lawsuit should be a wake call. This is what the left does when it controls a major corporation.
What do you think they will do the next time they fully control the American government?
