Google Condemns Employee’s Factual Memo… Because Feelings

Published

on

An unnamed senior employee at Google has caused a firestorm after writing a factual and realistic memo about diversity which first went viral throughout the company before being published publicly.

The 10-page long memo, titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber,” discussed the how men and women tend to have different traits which often means they can excel in different careers. The currently unnamed author argued that by focusing on making sure the company is diverse, instead of finding the best talent no matter the person’s age or gender, that they are forced to lower expectations.

“Differences in distributions of traits between men and women may in part explain why we don’t have 50% representation of women in tech and leadership. Discrimination to reach equal representation is unfair, divisive, and bad for business,” the author wrote.

Despite the left’s outcry and immediate jump to screeching about sexism, the author of the report actually offered constructive ideas and ways to achieve diversity by acknowledging that there are differences between men and women.

He noted that women often have a stronger interest in people rather than things, compared to men, which makes the tech industry less appealing to the ladies, generally speaking.

“These two differences in part explain why women relatively prefer jobs in social or artistic areas. More men may like coding because it requires systemizing and even within SWEs, comparatively more women work on front end, which deals with both people and aesthetics,” the memo states.

The memo explains that by acknowledging this difference, the company could find better ways to achieve diversity in tech, such as by offering part-time jobs that may be more appealing to women who wish to have a work-life balance. Another idea he had was to make software engineering more people-oriented by using pair programming and supporting more collaboration.

The author also pointed out that women are often more agreeable, and therefore have trouble negotiating salaries or asking for raises, which is part of the real reason there may be differences in pay for men and women within the company. He added that “there’s overlap between men and women, but this is seen solely as a women’s issue. This leads to exclusory programs like Stretch and swaths of men without support.”

“I’m also not saying that we should restrict people to certain gender roles; I’m advocating for quite the opposite: treat people as individuals, not as just another member of their group (tribalism),” the author wrote.

Additionally, the thoughtful memo asserts that diversity of opinions and political ideologies are far more important than diversity of races and genders. He explained why it is important to have conservative voices at the company, who aren’t shamed into silence.

“Alienating conservatives is both non-inclusive and generally bad business because conservatives tend to be higher in conscientiousness, which is require for much of the drudgery and maintenance work characteristic of a mature company,” he wrote.

Instead of arguing using facts, logic, or reason, many women within the Google team immediately took to social media to scream about the “sexism.” Their hysterics, and threats to quit over their feelings being hurt by facts, ironically further made his point.

Even worse, Danielle Brown, Google’s new VP of diversity, integrity and governance, wrote an email to all employees condemning the facts contained within the memo. She asserted that the author’s opinions and presentation of facts is “not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages.”

“Diversity and inclusion are a fundamental part of our values and the culture we continue to cultivate. We are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company, and we’ll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul. As Ari Balogh said in his internal G+ post, ‘Building an open, inclusive environment is core to who we are, and the right thing to do. ‘Nuff said,’” Brown wrote.

When will the left learn that feelings will never outweigh facts?

Democrat Congressman BLOCKS U.S. Veterans After Saying Strzok Deserves Purple Heart

Published

on

After receiving massive blowback and criticism for proclaiming that disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok deserves a purple heart, Congressman Steve Cohen, a Democrat who represents Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District, has decided to block Veterans who are responding to his ignorant remarks on Twitter.

During Strzok’s Congressional testimony on Thursday, Rep. Cohen sparked outrage when he told disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok that he should be awarded a Purple Heart.

“If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one. This has been an attack on you, in a way to attack Mr. Mueller, in the investigation that is to get at Russia collusion involved in our election,” Rep. Cohen said.
Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest military decorations that is awarded in the name of the US president to members of the military who are wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States, quickly sparked outrage online by people who knew better than to make such a disrespectful and insulting comparison.

After receiving a lot of backlash the day following the testimony, Cohen said he now regrets what he said. “I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart.’ I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never thought literally it should be given to Agent Strzok.”

Instead of apologizing to Veterans who fought and risked their lives for our country, Rep. Cohen is using the block feature on Twitter so that Veterans and other critics can’t respond to Rep. Cohen.

Rep. Cohen has blocked so many veterans that a Twitter user created a Twitter page for all of the people, mostly veterans, who have been blacked by Cohen.

Hundreds of users took to Twitter on Saturday morning to explain why they are blocked by Rep. Cohen with the hashtag #HeBlockedMeToo.

 

“I wish my four surgeries to rebuild me were metaphoric. You owe us an apology, not a clarification of the words you used,” one U.S. Veteran tweeted.

One user tweeted, “I told him the story of how my uncle got his Purple Heart in Vietnam & died from Agent Orange. Told him he owed Veterans a very public apology. He blocked me.”

Despite these heartfelt messages from twitter users whose family members received the Purple Heart and veterans who were wounded in war, Rep. Cohen has continued to block people, blocking
Generals, Colonels, members of Congress and wounded Veterans.

US Army veteran Mark Footerman, who is also a fellow for Hill Vets, an organization that encourages veterans to create global impact tweeted, “Member of Congress, Rep. Cohen, has blocked me, an Army veteran, for criticizing his deeply disturbing statement that Peter Strzok deserves a Purple Heart because he has sat through a tough congressional hearing.”

A female combat veteran tweeted, “I was blocked but @RepCohen is a coward…this female Marine Veteran will call TN Rep Steve Cohen a coward all day @RepCohen is a coward #RepCohenIsACowardlyDemrat Democrats can’t handle the truth.”

James T, A US Air Force Veteran tweeted, “Funny, I just checked and I’m blocked too and I’ve never tweeted about him or to him. Maybe he blocks all veterans. What an ass.”

A wounded combat veteran tweeted, “This is what happens when a wounded vet stands up to a Congressman who wants to give a Purple Heart to lying, narcissistic cheater. Apparently, he [Rep.Cohen] hates Veterans.”

One user who said they only created Twitter so that they could reply to Cohen’s outrageous comments said they were immediately blocked by the Congressman. “I joined Twitter so that my voice would get through to @RepCohen. Looks like it did. He blocked me 1 hour and 30 min after I created my Twitter account.”

Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest military decorations that is awarded in the name of the US president to members of the military who are wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States, quickly sparked outrage online by people who knew better than to make such a disrespectful and insulting comparison.

Not only was Rep. Cohen’s statement a slap in the face to all service men and women who have fought and served for the United States, but his intentional blocking of Veterans suggests that he has no respect or consideration for US veterans. On top of being anti-Veteran, anti-American, and anti-free speech, Rep. Cohen’s actions may have him in direct violation of the law. In May, a federal district court judge ruled that President Trump can’t block people from following his Twitter account. According to the judge, elected officials who block tweets with differing opinions constitutes viewpoint discrimination, which violates the First Amendment.

Thus, if President Trump cannot block twitter users who have opposing views, neither can Rep. Cohen, who is also an elected US politician.

Rep. Cohen’s office did not reply with a request for comment as to why the Democrat Congressman is intentionally blocking US veterans and Conservatives on Twitter.

Here is a collection of tweets from other US veterans and twitter users who also took to social media to ask why they had been blocked by Rep.Cohen.
