Google betrays the reason for its own existence.

Not since Jerry Maguire circulated his mission statement at Sports Management International has an internal memo so backfired on its author as James Damore’s written thoughts on the tech world’s groupthink did.

The Google engineer wrote that “when it comes to diversity and inclusion, Google’s left bias has created a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence. This silence removes any checks against encroaching extremist and authoritarian policies.”

Google quickly terminated Damore (Maybe Brendan Eich is hiring).

Point proved. But at what cost?

    If the Google CEO had put the braying hounds in their place this could have been a turning point to a more open culture within the company; instead he encouraged (or even lead) the pack and now they are on the road to destruction.

    No offence to hounds.

      If he hadn’t caved in to the braying hounds, he might have faced a mutiny as thousands of SJW employees went on strike and DEMANDED that he cast out the heretic. That’s what happens when your company hires so many SJWs in the first place.

        True. It was never going to happen with this guy.

        Let them strike. The only thing sjw’s are good at is rabble rousing. I have a suspicion that productivity for the various s/w projects they have would actually increase if they let the dead weight go on strike.

    Backfired on its author? Someone has come out of this smelling really bad, and it’s not James Damore.
