The Internet was ablaze with the story of James Damore. A once successful employee of Google, the man was fired over a simple memo. What did the memo say? It simply questioned the liberal companies warped policy on gender issues. Damore’s common sense memo triggered snowflakes within the company. It led to his unjust firing. However, it looks like Google will come to regret that decision as Damore gets the last laugh.
Millions of people rely on Google every day. We use their email service. Our search results are provided by Google. Many of us even carry around Google-powered smartphones, allowing the company to know our every move. However, it might shock some of you to know the company is run by some of the most extreme liberals in the country.
Google, like many other tech giants, is a big Democratic donor. Their leadership believes in some of the most toxic “progressive” views. They are so entrenched, that even questioning their policies will get you fired. That’s just what happened to James Damore.
He wrote a memo questioning the effectiveness of Google’s diversity policy. He simply said that putting diversity over skill was a bad decision. But, apparently, you can’t have that kind of opinion in an industry run by liberals. When a few of his female coworkers learned that Damore thought for himself, the tech giant fired him.
However, Damore is not going down without a fight. He knows they fired him unjustly. A company does not have the right to fire an employee over his personal opinion. So, Damore is holding Google accountable, and he’s doing it with a class action lawsuit.
James Damore, the onetime Google employee who was fired after he wrote a memo criticizing the firm for pushing diversity, has filed a class action lawsuit against the tech giant. The suit was filed Monday in Santa Clara Superior Court. Damore is joined in the lawsuit by another former Google engineer, David Gudeman. [Source: Fox News]
“Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males,” the lawsuit alleged. “This is the essence of discrimination — Google formed opinions about and then treated Plaintiffs not based on their individual merits, but rather on their membership in groups with assumed characteristics.”
It may sound shocking that a company would do this to a white man, but this is par for the course among liberals. If you are a straight, white man and — God forbid — conservative, you’re treated like an enemy. Damore was a model employee. He didn’t break any rules. The company didn’t fire him because he was bad at his job or because he was stealing paper clips. It was because he was a white man who didn’t agree with their toxic policy.
The left does this all the time. Why do you think they hate President Donald Trump so much? Because he is a white man with a conservative opinion. For years, liberals claimed to fight racism and discrimination. Yet today, they have proven to be the biggest bigots of them all.
Damore told Fox Business that Google still engages in “harassment and career sabotage of anyone that expresses a conservative viewpoint, and there’s constant shaming and attacks against white men within Silicon Valley.” [Source: Fox News]
“Google employees and managers strongly preferred to hear the same orthodox opinions regurgitated repeatedly, producing an ideological echo chamber, a protected, distorted bubble of groupthink,” the lawsuit claimed. “When Plaintiffs challenged Google’s illegal employment practices, they were openly threatened and subjected to harassment and retaliation from Google.”
This is the kind of thing millions of conservatives deal with on a daily basis. We interact with liberal family, coworkers, and even strangers on social media. They show us a hostile, hateful attitude for not agreeing with their views. And, if you were born a straight, white man? They hate you with a burning passion usually reserved for serial killers.
Make no mistake, Google is going to fight this with everything they have. They will employ an army of lawyers to shut this case down. The company will make excuses and try to slander and smear Damore’s reputation. However, the facts are clear: Damore was fired because a liberal company is hostile to conservative ideas.
It’s that kind of attitude that will be the death of liberal politics, companies, and figures. Unfortunately, they might not learn until it’s too late.
