Well that would mean constructive dialogue which has no place at Google. I doubt management read his whole email either. All they needed to know was that he had conservative viewpoints and some snowflakes complained. That was reason enough to fire him, apparently.

I don't think he had conservative viewpoints. I think he was just playing devils advocate. And he got burned for it because Google doesn't want discussion.

I read that his email was in response to an inquiry from higher ups about what employees thought about said issues. Apparently they only wanted to hear what they already think.


This kind of thinking is permeating our society today. If you have an opposing view you are somehow evil and have to be silenced.

At least they can't silnce us at the voting booth like they do in Cuba, Venezuela, and other Socialist Utopias. But they are trying.

Yeah, they saw 2016 and said "there's no way we're going to let that happen again".
