Google's Diversity Purge

A software engineer was fired for offering a diverse opinion for the reason behind the gender gap in career choices.

At Google, it appears that diversity doesn’t actually mean diversity. Recently, James Damore, a senior software engineer at the Internet giant, sent an internal 10-page memo in which he expressed his opinions of the company’s leftist slant on the gender gap among software engineers. Damore blamed “a politically correct monoculture” at Google for “shaming dissenters into silence” on those topics it has determined to be off limits for diversity of opinion.

As if to prove his point, Google fired Damore for “advancing harmful gender stereotypes.” In other words, Damore was guilty of stating the obvious and scientifically verifiable truth that men and women are different. Being different, they tend to make different choices. Indeed, the primary motivating factor behind the disparity in gender choices happens to be rooted in biology. You know, the “controversial” notion that men and women in general manifest their gender via differing goals, desires, ambitions, commitments, physical abilities and career objectives.

The imbalance between men and women working in software engineering is primarily due to America’s value for freedom of choice, not the myth of societal oppression via the patriarchy. Yet the execs at Google seem blind to their own ideological hypocrisy with self-contradicting statements like the following made by Danielle Brown, Google’s new vice president for diversity, integrity and governance: “We are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company. We’ll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul.”

Well, except for that misogynist loon, Damore.

His firing exposes Google’s problem with intolerance. Only politically correct leftist opinions will be tolerated at Google; all others will be declared “intolerant” and therefore will be excluded, because at Google they’re all about espousing the virtues of inclusion and diversity.
