It used to be people could have a discussion about politics, at a coffee shop, or over the water cooler at work.
Not now. If you don’t say the right things — you’ll be named and shamed, and fired from your job, like Google’s James Damore, who criticized the company’s “ideological echo chamber.”
The true threat of censorship and bullying these days isn’t from the government, but from Silicon Valley.
Google, which also owns YouTube; Facebook; Twitter; Amazon; Microsoft. Those companies affect your life more often and more deeply than any politician does.
(At The Rebel, we know this all too well.)
But what do normal people think?
Well, a major new Harris opinion poll just came out, one with a large sample size of more than 2,200 names.
Of those polled, 55 per cent said Google shouldn’t have fired Damore.
That’s not a massive majority, but in the face of the media firestorm against him, the tilted poll question, and people being shy when answering pollsters, that’s an incredible result.
(The response to another, related poll question, which I’ll share with you tonight, was even more impressive.)
It proves that severely normal people are against these witch hunts.
But the media are too stupid to know that. So are politicians.
That’s why, as John Carpay told us yesterday, and I agree, the worst is yet to come in the battle for free speech...
