This Google Employee Shared His Views on Diversity and Conservatism. His Leftist Co-Workers Completely Lose Their Minds.
As one of the largest, most powerful corporations in the world, Google's mantra for its employees is simply "Don't Be Evil." The question of the day, however, is this: What does the company consider evil?
The leftist employees at Google have been triggered in the wake of an internal essay a senior software engineer wrote, entitled "Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber." It denounces the company's current diversity programs, attacks on conservative values and calls for increased ideological diversity instead.
The left has always prided itself on racial diversity; that is, diversity of appearance but not in thought or ideas. It is discrimination, pure and simple.
Leftists would rather have ten people of different races agreeing on one idea than ten people of one race proposing ten different ideas. The problem with the former arrangement is that prioritizing identity over merit stifles progress and pushes candidates into positions they may not be qualified to fill.
Jaana Dogan, in a brilliant display of leftist "tolerance," says she would leave Google, not because of unfair practices or discrimination, but because another employee might not get punished for writing something she disagreed with. This is the very definition of fascism.
Of course, left-leaning media outlets are labeling the essay an anti-diversity "screed" and "manifesto" in an attempt to pander to their audiences. To them, it is "anti-diversity" to promote based on skills and merit rather than just gender or race.
It's easy to demonstrate the lunacy (and hypocrisy) of so-called "diversity" initiatives. Is there a black woman working as a custodian at Google? Why not make her an executive based solely on the fact that she's black and a female? Would it be sexist and racist not to? What if one of the front-desk receptionists is a male, but decides to identify as a woman? Does he now qualify to be VP? If not, isn't that sexist and/or transphobic? Why not? Oh right — because merit still matters.
So much for a company that tells employees "Don't Be Evil."

Stay alert. Stay alive.
