Google Engineer Slams Company's 'Outrage Mobs'

Once again the tech giant demonstrates its commitment to leftist nonsense.

In a letter recently published in Medium, Google software engineer Mike Wacker called out his company over its leftist intolerance. “If left unchecked,” Wacker argued, “these outrage mobs will hunt down any conservative, any Christian, and any independent free thinker at Google who does not bow down to their agenda.”

Wacker describes an Orwellian-like climate at Google where the mere expression of personal opinions that don’t comport with leftist social justice ideology are treated as dangerous and threatening. For example, one of his fellow Republican employees was reported for saying nice things about popular University of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson. He received a written notice stating, “One Googler raised a concern that you appeared to be promoting and defending Jordan Peterson’s comments about transgender pronouns, and this made them feel unsafe at work.” Seriously.

On Google’s anonymous reporting channels, Wacker noted that he has been reported twice for statements that were “perceived as hateful/incendiary/inflammatory.” And what were these terrible statements? In one instance Wacker had written that “the definition of ‘Google’s values’ that matter is the one used by Google’s activists, who could only be described as ‘nonpartisan’ in the same sense that the Women’s March could be described as inclusive towards pro-life Jewish women.” The horror.

It is clear that at Google, tolerance is not a two-way street. After all, the last time a Google engineer stepped outside the hive mind, he was fired.
