lawman8


6:31 PM - August 9th, 2017

This is a good example that demonstrates the (((media's))) brainwashing in action.

The "hostile work environment" line comes directly from a gay open letter that a former Google exec wrote.

Many mass media articles, when reporting on the whole thing, also reported on this open letter, quoted this line and pretended it was truth.

And your friend parrots the line to you as if it's his own thought or belief. He'd probably swear to this under a lie detector test too.

You could probably do a similar process and it would reveal at least 75% of your friend's "thoughts" or "beliefs" were formulated in a similar manner.

But like I said, the (((media))) went too far here, and made red pilling only too easy. All he has to do is read the actual document.

Dude should be fired for the sole reason that he did not see this would cause a huge controversy and hurt the company.

Terrible judgment is always a fireable offense.

Plus what a dorky looking motherfucker. You know half the reason he wrote that is he's never been kissed by a girl.


typical lib pundit


9:18 PM - August 9th, 2017

yep, same reason Kaepernick shouldn't be hired


lawman8


9:22 PM - August 9th, 2017

Don't even give them that. Kaepernick made many public cries for attention.

This guy wrote an internal memo that was never supposed to see the outside of the company.

Google is 100% wrong.


Rudolph


9:29 PM - August 9th, 2017

I have no problem with NFL owners not hiring him for showing bad judgement.

I wouldn't hire him because he sucks though.

I served in the military so you have the freedom to not stand during the anthem - should your convictions move you. But I don't own an NFL team that has to worry about brand.


lawman8


9:21 PM - August 9th, 2017

Disagree, because he wrote it as an internal memo only.

He submitted it last month.

Some Google SJWs were irate and leaked it to the (((media))).

So using your logic, every leaker should be fired because they caused the company to be "hurt."


Rudolph


9:27 PM - August 9th, 2017

Well then, both you and he should be fired for being so dumb in 2017 to not know that internal corporate memos might be leaked to the Internet.

The fucking White House leaks top secret info every other fucking day for Christ sake.


lawman8


9:36 PM - August 9th, 2017

Did you actually read it? I don't think you did.

It is measured and balanced. I disagree that he should have known (1) that it would be leaked when other internal memos have not and (2) that it would cause a massive controversy.

Plus, your "harm to the company" argument seems like bullshit when you are unwilling to say that the actual leakers should be punished.

I think you should just be honest and admit that you don't agree with the memo and that's why you think Google was right to fire him.


Rudolph


9:39 PM - August 9th, 2017

I did read the memo and if he did not anticipate how Google and the tech industry would react to him arguing that their diversity programs are doomed to failure because biology says women make for bad coders and bad leaders because they have anxiety issues, he's a fucking moron.

And so are you.

And of course he should have anticipated that would go external. It was entirely foreseeable.


lawman8


9:42 PM - August 9th, 2017

Except that isn't what he said. Try quoting from the memo to support your statement.

I'll repeat: I think you should just be honest and admit that you don't agree with the memo and that's why you think Google was right to fire him.


Rudolph


9:47 PM - August 9th, 2017

I'm not playing this game you autistic virgin.

I summarized what he said. If I pull the quotes that establish that you'll just bitch about context.

His argument was that google's diversity programs won't work because biology explains the few women coders and tech leaders.

That's a kryptonite argument in 2017 and making it like he did at work shows horrendous judgment. End of story.

Bullshit, and you continue to lie about what he said.

And why don't you just admit that you don't agree with the memo? You'll try to pretend it is irrelevant, but it goes to the heart of your true position.

What makes you say that?

How do you know he didn't just go to the NLRB immediately after his memo got leaked and Google management tried smearing him and distorting what he was saying, as Rudolph did? That very well was his best move at the time, but doesn't prove he wanted this to happen from the beginning.

Filing internal complaints is fine, because he has justified complaints.

It is only if he went to the NLRB before the memo went out that I'd say he probably did set a trap.

It's extremely implausible to me so I just don't believe it. The dude is smart as hell and can make plenty of money. It doesn't make sense that he'd want to tank his career just to catch Google in a gotcha lawsuit.


Rudolph


9:59 PM - August 9th, 2017

He isn't that smart. That's the point. He's clearly autistic and can't read society or social clues. He's fucking Rainman. Never been kissed frustrated virgin.

Wait, so he set a nefarious trap for Google but he's not that smart? Because that's what we are talking about.


Rudolph


10:29 PM - August 9th, 2017

He didn't set a trap. He has a 0% chance of being protected under the NLRB to complain about Google diversity initiatives.

Whatever. That is a cowardly mindset.

Google could have easily just said that nothing in the memo actually creates a hostile work environment because it's discussing broad populations rather than individuals, that it encourages debate and free thinking, and that it wasn't going to do a damn thing about the memo. Anybody that is too offended to work at Google can leave.

Google would earn a lot of people's respect, and it would die down after their next quarterly results.


Rudolph


9:52 PM - August 9th, 2017

Context is everything nigga. He didn't write it as a generality, he was attacking google's existing diversity initiatives.


H.R. Puffendorf


9:54 PM - August 9th, 2017

Attacking or pointing out that they were flawed and not producing anything?


Rudolph


9:57 PM - August 9th, 2017

So you admit he wasn't discussing the general population but google specifically, right?

I have discussed this with multiple Lib Boomers that are worth between $10-$50M, and they literally say, "Well, he said that men are better at math and computers, and women are better with people. What a sexist!"

Not only are they too lazy to read more than a few headlines, but even when told of what he actually said it's like they are unable to comprehend the concept of trait distributions across populations or bell curves.

Millenials are for more likely to just say that these claims have all been "debunked," or that blank slate gender equality is "settled science."

Odd that these people all claim that the Democratic party is the "Party of Science."

Also makes me wonder what they're hiding on global warming, since they use a lot of the same tactics there....

Amazing that a public, consumer-oriented company is leery of controversial opinions attacking 50% of their customers....

Here's the thing - Google is obviously a liberal hellscape, but if a 10 page company-wide screed about the intellectual deficits of Christians was leaked, you'd have the same protests from hysterical pressure groups, and Google would fire the guy, too, despite agreeing 100%.

0% chance a similar memo shedding unflattering light on Christians causes anyone to be fired. Millions of these exist and are routinely applauded ("so much this")


.,.,...,..,.,..:,,:,...,:::,...,:,.,.:..:.,:,::,.


11:35 PM - August 9th, 2017

Of course he was fired. The memo argues that women aren't as biologically suited to leadership or coding as men. 25%+ of Google's leadership is female. It's not like he made some innocuous point that everyone accepts and can move on with.


UhOh


11:43 PM - August 9th, 2017

except he's not arguing at all that those 25% aren't suited to leadership or coding. he's arguing that they are only 25% because only 25% of women are interested in that life, therefore google shouldn't waste resources trying to push the rate higher. instead it should work on making those 25% who have chosen that life better off.


.,.,...,..,.,..:,,:,...,:::,...,:,.,.:..:.,:,::,.


11:48 PM - August 9th, 2017

If you accept his premise and agree that Google is irrationally focused on diversity, it's not a big leap to say he's implying that at least some of the 25% are there because of AA.


UhOh


11:57 PM - August 9th, 2017

and i'm sure that's true.

The people who say this dumb autist should have known better are obviously right. The fact that views like these have to be concealed and, when presented, done so with extreme analytical precision and conscientious tact, is not new. And is this really the hill you want to die on? If he had a family I'd say that he was a bad person for doing this.

Those who think that google -- currently a relatively insignificant company in the grand scheme of history (even American history) -- will pay a price over the long term for the easy-out approach they take to questions like these are also probably correct.

XO Megan: "If there were guys at Google wondering whether the women around them really deserved their jobs, did anyone wake up the morning after Damore's firing with the revelation: “Good God, how could I have been so blind?” No, I suspect those guys are now thinking: “You see? Women can’t handle math or logic.”"
