Google Purge: Tech Giant Firing Staff Over Viewpoint Diversity

Silicon Valley has a really bad reputation for being paradoxically pro-free market and simultaneously socially liberal.

And Google (along with Apple and Facebook) is legendary for its PC-police-state corporate culture that would make members of the Third Reich blush.

During the Obama administration, Google corporate heads basically used the White House as their branch headquarters in DC where they were given direct access to the president and were consulted on big government agenda items.

So when employees at Google started to raise red flags about the hypocrisy of their policy of free thinking and diversity of opinion, the powers-that-be have begun lopping off heads.

Silicon Valley has become a virtual version of Paris during the French Revolution in which anyone accused of being a member of the ‘Old Guard’ gets the ax…or the digital guillotine, as it were.

But leftism, for all its talk of fairness and freedom, has never really been concerned with being fair or free.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The Google employee behind a ten-page viewpoint diversity manifesto that went viral online has been fired.
James Damore, whose manifesto criticizing the politically correct corporate culture at Google prompted outrage from left-wing employees and social justice warriors online, revealed that he had been fired in an email to Breitbart Tech on Monday evening.

In his email to Breitbart Tech, Damore claimed, “They just fired me for ‘perpetuating gender stereotypes.’”

Damore’s writing has revealed a divided Google, in which some employees agree with his outlook, but are afraid to speak out for fear of repercussions from social justice warriors in the company, such as being added to blacklists.

In a memo sent to employees, Google CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly claimed that Damore had violated their Code of Conduct.

Earlier in the day we reported on free speech social media platform Gab, which expressed interest in hiring Damore if he was fired from Google.
