It is no secret that Google is a smug left wing outfit dedicated to shaping public opinion in a leftist direction. The latest example is the firing of a worker who had the temerity to point out that Google lacks intellectual diversity.
Google has not publicly named but Bloomberg reported that software engineer James Damore confirmed in an email that he had been let go for “perpetuating gender stereotypes” and was exploring legal action against the company. Internal discussions boards seen by Bloomberg suggest that multiple employees supported the dismissal of the employee and said they would choose not to work with him.
The memo also criticized the company’s diversity programs and questioned whether differing views could be said freely within Google.
“Many points raised in the memo-such as the portions criticizing Google’s trainings, questioning the role of ideology in the workplace, and debating whether programs for women and underserved groups are sufficiently open to all-are important topics,” Pichai wrote. “The author had a right to express their views on those topics-we encourage an environment in which people can do this and it remains our policy to not take action against anyone for prompting these discussions.”
Go here to read the rest. Most leftists are in favor of diversity, so long as the diverse people think alike and march in lock step. A man who truly valued intellectual diversity, General George S. Patton, put it succinctly long ago: “If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”
