People are probably quite familiar now with the big story of how a Google software engineer was summarily fired for circulating a memo around his company, positing the viewpoint (taking into account verifiable scientific studies that confirm this) that a reason why more women don’t work as software engineers could be that most women don’t want to be software engineers; not that the evil male empire is preventing them from becoming software engineers. Google circulated memos in opposition, and their reason for dismissing their engineer was that his memo “violated company policies”. Here is a link to a post on the Ricochet Main Feed. Maybe you’ll want to join.
Just recently, the Daily Caller newsletter published an article discussing the participation of Google and Facebook in a gathering called “Netroots Nation”, a meeting of a variety of far-left techies. It seems that this “net roots” group will be ganging up on a pro-life organization. A Ricochet member did this, which is absolutely perfect:
[Editorial Comment. If your organization protests a group that is “pro-life”, what does that make you? Why, it makes you and your organizations and your sponsors “anti-life”, or “pro-death” (here’s looking at you, Planned Parenthood)]
The Daily Caller story also referenced a video, with the Google name changed to Gulag. You may never think of Google in quite the same way again. I have stopped using Google for my internet search. I use DuckDuckGo instead, and it works just fine. You already know that I do not use Facebook. Here’s just one more reason why.
