Stop lying about that Google “anti-diversity” memo

Gavin McInnesArchive

A Google tech was just fired for daring to question the assumption that we need more gender diversity in tech. Anyone who says it was an “anti-diversity” screed is lying.

(LANGUAGE WARNING)

The CEO of Google is being dishonest when he fired this tech and the media reporting on the story has likely not even read it.

The interoffice memo he wrote is remarkably benign; It points to data that says men tend to be more attracted to this kind of work.

The data is out there for anyone to see. All they have to do is Google it.

That’s the irony here:

Google’s job is to accrue data and notice patterns. One of their employees did that and they fired him.

This is how powerful the liberal narrative is.

You can’t question it.

You can’t even say you can’t question it.

“The key argument is that all diversity is encouraged, but diversity of thought is not permitted. Organizations without diversity of thought become totalitarian. This leads to negative outcomes for the organization (or society).

He is 100% correct.

Google made absolute idiots of themselves in the last election. Drunk on globalist progressivism, we saw Eric Schmidt make a fool of himself wandering around wearing Hillary Clinton badges, showing Google to be a partisan organization and advising the DNC.

No one appeared to be advising him to stop. That’s because there was no one around who had a different view. Smarter organizations stayed quiet.

Well, Trump won. Google now don’t have the access they once enjoyed to the WH or POTUS. And it really doesn’t matter whether you agree with Schmidt or not. He has damaged Google.

That’s what happens when there’s no genuine diversity of thought in the culture and management team.

It’s good that Google permits speech like this in a forum, but given the chilling response from this ‘Danielle’, the Orwellian ‘President of Diversity, Integrity & Governance’, I suspect this young man will be targeted and hounded out of the business by the totalitarians who run the echo chamber. It will be interesting to follow his fortunes." -Jim Peters

Hey Google please apply this to your ad targeting , keep those ads diverse ,put your money where your mouth is, I DARE YOU!
eg: No more Viagra or Cialis ads directed towards male web surfers, no more clothing and shoe ads for women surfers, that is sexism according to your ideals. LMAO!

More left wing hypocrisy, they claim to hate big corporations and say they have to much control, yet they love it when Facebook and Google use totalitarian tactics like this. Then they have the audacity to call others sheep for being religious and calling others bigots for wanting actual equality and personal responsibility and the freedom that comes with it. I dearly wish i could leave them to their self subjugation , but it affects me as well.

Corporate fascism reigns supreme in internet content control freaks – their censorship done with a bigoted flair and fascist totality Fvck google-Face book-Twitter and the fascist twinkies who run them – I haven’t used these content providers ever since they got creepy and it looks like you tube is next on my embargo list – there ARE alternatives support them.

Google’s virtue-signalling and their control of web content, as well as its availability to users, has reached a point where they proudly display their arrogance and demand that others obey their expectations.

They intend to do evil.

I think the real issue here can be framed as questions:

What portion of the 64 percent of Canada’s electorate that voted Liberal, NDP, and Green would support this guy’s firing? Better yet, would Paris Scheer and all his compliant little tory sheep approve?
