Being Evil

Last year, Google’s collective (heh) culture of Urban Progressive Privilege-sotted virtue-signaling intolerance fell onto Google engineer James Damore for the high crime of out that Google, ironically, has a relentlessly PC, virtue-signaling-focused corporate culture.  Damore was summarily fired.

This past week, Damore and his team  filed their lawsuit

Damore has now answered Google with a legal broadside, and it’s extraordinary. Most people don’t have time to read his entire 181-page complaint, but those who do will find a comprehensive argument that Google’s corporate culture encourages, sanctions, and facilitates an extraordinary amount of abuse against conservative white males.

And he has the receipts. Much of the complaint consists of screen shots of internal Google communications and postings on internal Google message boards that would constitute strong evidence of hostile-environment race-and-gender harassment if the the races and genders were reversed. For example, “Googlers” (that’s what employees call themselves, using Google’s silly corporate language) relentlessly enforce a so-called “Googley” culture where employees blacklist conservatives (blocking them from in-house communications), actually boo white-male hires, and openly discuss committing acts of violence against political opponents. The “punch a Nazi” debate is alive and well at Google, and the definition of “Nazi” is extraordinarily broad. In one posting, an employee proposes a “moratorium on hiring white cis heterosexual abled men who aren’t abuse survivors.” In another, an employee advertises a workshop on “healing from toxic whiteness.” Another post mocks “white fragility.” The examples go on and on, for page after page. Damore also alleges (and again, provides screenshots of emails and other communications to support his claims) that managers actively attacked conservative employees, encouraged punitive actions against dissenters, and even awarded “peer bonuses” for speech attacking conservatives.

Google is a private business?  Sure – they’ve got every right to run things any way they want.   But we’ve seen what mindless monocultures have brought to most of our major cities; what do you think it’ll do to a company?

Googlers may have special coding skills or may fit seamlessly in the company’s Googley culture, but it’s now plain that much of their discourse represents a special kind of pettiness, stupidity, and intolerance. It’s often fact-free, insulting, and narrow-minded. In other words, a Silicon Valley monoculture produces exactly the kind of discourse produced by monocultures everywhere. While there are certainly kind, courteous, and civil progressives at Google, the existence of the monoculture also enables the worst sorts of behavior.

  1. Believe it or not, it is actually illegal in the United States for businesses to discriminate based on perceived race and/or sex.
    I hate google & I am hoping someone will replace them. They offer good tools for certain kinds of searches, but for general searches their algorithm has become crap. If you want to go to your google hangouts web page, and you type “google hangouts” in your search bar, the actual link to “google hangouts” is below three links to dubious 3rd party .coms that offer downloads of a free “google hangouts” app.

  2. Believe it or not, it is actually illegal in the United States for businesses to discriminate based on perceived race and/or sex.

    What MP said. It is illegal to discriminate based on gender and race. Even in private business. This will be a test case to determine if we still live in a nation of laws or not.

  3. In Nineteen Eighty-Four, Big Brother was not tyrannical because he created tyrannical laws. Big Brother was tyrannical because there were no laws. Big Brother did not like laws because a law would define what was and what was not permitted, and Big Brother accepted no limitations on his power.

  4. I was very skeptical of Damore’s threats until I realized he’d kept radio silence and compiled hundreds of pages of evidence. Popping popcorn to watch…..

  5. I hope, as part of the settlement, Googlers are forced to attend a mandatory screening of 300 with their eyelids pried open ala Alex de Lage. Not sure about the soundtrack…maybe De Lite

    That being said, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for Damore. How could he not know who he was applying to for employment? Did he think he could work with reprobate leftists day in day out and not get any on him? Still, I hope he’s a new multi-millionaire this time next year.

  6. I have not checked, but does anyone know what are the goobernment fines and actions for a company which is caught red-handed in racial and sex discrimination?

  7. On top of that, their founders, one of whose parents came from the former Soviet Bloc, were so far up Obama’s ass, that if he would have stopped quick, their necks would have been broken. Those two pricks have compromised the privacy of every citizen that has ever used Google. They are so rich now, any fines would be chump change. If I could shut them down, even for a day, I would do it with glee!

    That is because they have accepted the lie that the future is known, and it is as the liberals portray it — greater globalization, greater integration of marginalized groups into the mainstream, all of which leads to a streamlined economy where economic inefficiency is a result of moral failure.
    We are not talking about philosophers, here. Techies tend to be dumb about anything that cannot be reduced to numbers.
