Google: It Is All About Free Speech

Apparently many people at Google do not understand the nexus between freedom and economic success.

As a result, Google was in turmoil this week.  This after the company fired #James Damore.  He is the author of a ten page manifesto defending viewpoint diversity.  Furthermore, many of the company’s employees are speaking out in support of the manifesto.

Damore’s manifesto was met by immediate backlash.  He described a climate of fear at the company.  For example, employees who challenge prevailing leftist narratives are faced with immediate threats to their careers.  And Damore’s own experience appears to confirm this.

As a result, Google is “leaking people with integrity.”  They are “tired of having to cope with these corrupt ideologies.”

Most noteworthy, a former employee criticed the company’s search engine.  ‘There are efforts to demote anything non-PC from search results.’

“Finally, racist and sexist incidents against white or male employees are not taken seriously.”

And he insists that “bias in support of these discriminatory and hostile behaviors goes pretty much all the way up.  Management’s just clever enough to let the lower ranks make it happen.”
