A shriek and a miss

Wired discovers that no one is buying Senior Technology Writer Nitasha Tiku's lame attempt to launch a point-and-shriek swarm at the behest of those 15 poor, besieged Googlers who can't harass and physically threaten their colleagues with violence and disemployment without their behavior being exposed to the public. Not even the sane non-SJW Left, who are beginning to understand that they are every bit as liable to be targeted by SJWs as the Right, and they are even more vulnerable to their swarmings.

As it happens, these were the highest-rated comments among Wired's own readers:

"goading them into inflammatory statements"

How do you force anyone into writing a statement or saying something inflammatory if they don’t already want to say it? Personal responsibility is outdated I guess. Or maybe it’s just for white males.

Markew
So "diversity advocates" are upset that tactics that have been used for years against those who don't agree with the diversity advocates are now being used against themselves? Huh.

RightishLeft
Only insecure idiots would want diversity to be forced from above by holding back some racial / gender groups and promoting others. It implies that the very people promoting diversity secretly believe that some groups are less able to win on merit alone than others. The only way to promote true diversity is via fair hiring and job promotion policies that emphasize individual merit, and merit alone.

John Reece
DIversity is swell, turning it into an obsessive-compulsive fetish thing is something else. 'Diversity' has also become leftist code for "don't like white males", when after all, it was mostly white males who invented Silicon Valley and most of modern science and technology.

NotSure2006
So...you are saying it would be wrong to leak the internal conversations on controversial subjects like diversity in the workplace if the person could experience backlash or doxxing. I wasn't there but I can only assume the keyboard burst into flames from the irony.

indio777
Well, to quote 'liz fong' " claiming she "could care less about being 'unfair' to" them, 'them' being white males...just because they're white and male. That is most repugnant, unfair attitude ever. Perhaps that is why people hit back at this nitwit because now they're saying 'I could care less about being unfair to liz fong and her band of diversity pushers'. If you can't take it, don't dish it fool.... DISGUSTING! Wired, why didn't you print WHAT these 'minority group' neanderthals actually wrote openly and were cheered on by other bigots within Google? Read the damn lawsuit. These people were mean, vicious, ignorant. There is NOTHING 'diverse' about picking on another group. EVER.

Mayrode Parashkov
It's reminds me of Jordan Peterson interview and how Cathy Newman and Channel 4 played the victim card after losing the debate and the intellectual battle. Google, YouTube and Twitter and the leftist employees are not the victims here. You fire and harass people and now people are fighting back.
Of course, the article never mentions what those poor besieged Googlers actually did and said about their colleagues. Allow me to correct that sad journalistic deficiency.

You can believe that women or minorities are unqualified all you like - I can't stop you - but if you say it out loud, then you deserve what's coming to you. Yes, this is "silencing". I intend to silence these views; they are violently offensive.
- Colm Buckley, Google

I'm not going to delude myself into thinking that nobody holds these opinions and feels marginalised in a genuine way. To those folks I would say "Doesn't feel nice, does it?". Leave it at home. If you're not prepared to leave it at home, then leave yourself there.
- Dave O'Conner, Google

I will absolutely go out of my way to make sure that I never work anyone involved with or who endorsed that garbage. Because Nazis. And you should absolutely punch Nazis.
- Anthony Baxter, Google

I'm going to devote at least the first third of my 45 minute interview time to a discussion of experience with diversity. If the first fifteen minutes doesn't satisfy me, I'll continue the discussion. If need be, it will take forty-five minutes. I would encourage others to do the same. Judging "googliness" by a vague gestalt with no deliberate attention to such things is inadequate.
- Thomas Bushnell, Google

Fun fact! Keeping a list can get you called out on a certain reprehensible internal mailing list, and have threats of being reported to HR. Threats I ignored, naturally, and which ironically grew the list substantially.
- Paul Cowan, Google

While Google appears to be doing very little to quell the hostile voices that exist inside the company, I want those hostile voices to know:
  • I will never, ever hire/transfer you onto my team. Ever. I don't care if you are perfect fit or technically excellent or whatever.
  • I will not actively work with you, even to the point where your team or product is impacted by this decision. I'll communicate why to your manager if it comes up.
  • You're being blacklisted by people at companies outside of Google.
- Adam Fletcher, Google

I keep a written blacklist of people whom I will never allow on or near my team based on how they vew and treat their coworkers. That blacklist got a little longer today.
- Collin Winter, Google

The only way to deal with all the heads of the medusa is to no-platform all of them.
- Liz Fong-Jones, Google

It wasn't just the highest-rated comments that opposed Tiku's SJW spin either. Some comments were considerably more biting.
Something I Said?
AS A contributor to Wired #1 I have to say that the authoress of this solid slab of slop has flatulated the most unbalanced article in memory. And, as for the cited Vox Day, he has this authoress' number when he notes: " This is particularly effective if the SJW and his allies have connections in various media organizations, which allows them to rapidly transform a minor event into something that is perceived by the public as a major one. The purpose of the media campaign is two-fold: to stamp the Narrative with an “objective” perspective that echoes the SJW's accusations and to let other potential allies know about the hate campaign in the hopes that they will add their weight to the hogpile."

Here's Your Sign
So.... Wired interviewed 15 people from one side of the debate and only threw in a few inflammatory comments from the other side? Modern journalism...
So much for the idea that Googlers are inclusive. Or intelligent and well-educated, for that matter. Let's face it, that's the real reason the SJWs at Google are so furious. They have been publicly exposed as highly politicized, intellectually fraudulent do-nothings instead of the smart, productive, 21st-century rocket scientists they consider themselves to be.

Homo sapiens sapiens using "Neanderthal" as a perjorative is similar to Germans using "Juden" as a slur or Bantu using "Bushman" to mean "subhuman". Committing genocide is one thing, but rubbing it in afterward seems excessive.

So the Wired comments were about 95% about defining and defaming the alt-right (the alt-right was captured by the same old hard right jerkoffs whose stock in trade is outrage and essays to the true believers).

So perhaps the time is ripe for something new and fresh.

No telling as to the absolute depths of embarrassment his parents feel.
In my experience, everyone tries to status-whore by using their children's achievements and finer qualities, in order to elevate themselves above their peers, but the Chinese tend to take this to the extreme. It's almost as though the only reason to have a kid in that culture is to show out to others.
I dated a girl while I was touring as a teen, and she was an excellent concert violinist. A little overweight and dumpy (for a Chinese chick) but really pleasant demeanor. Gorgeous eyes. Anyway, she wanted to attend Juliard and ended up getting an audition. Her father prevented it and told her he would disown her if she didn't pursue law or medicine, which according to him are the only occupations appropriate for Chinese women (weird, I know).
She ended up working for a republican congressman for a while as an aide before going to medical school. She married a white ex-marine captain, a SERIOUS mudrider/hunter/fisherman, and her father accepted it after having an absolute fit.

To use your children as status symbols is almost as disgusting (to me) as using them to virtue signal. I'm guessing this Fong person's parents are at cosmic levels of shame over him.

Ave Medusa

Blogger Starboard January 28, 2018 2:11 PM  

In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770), Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," but because Poseidon had raped her in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.[6] In Ovid's telling, Perseus describes Medusa's punishment by Minerva (Athena) as just and well earned.

https://infogalactic.com/info/Medusa

So Medusa was a gorgeous woman who was punished for being raped by Poseidon, and the one punishing her was the jealous goddess Athena(smart woman in power). In that punishment, Medusa gains the power and strength to strike down enemies.

MEDUSA works.

Looking at the behaviour of these Google employees makes you wonder how anything at all is getting done there. And if management is allowing this sort of behaviour, isn't that affecting the profitability of the company?

It sounds like the management is not carrying out their fiduciary duty to shareholders, and need to be held to account. That might be an interesting avenue of approach, although someone versed in corporate law should explore this further...

well, you were quite accurate in laughing at these people and their paucity of knowledge pertaining to anything outside of computing. (For the record, Google has some really excellent world class technical people, but they are not the ones involved in the left wing rabble rousing).

I am personally embarrassed to see half-wits who have never opened a political science, philosophy, ethics, or psychology book of their own accord going around and announcing that they are experts in social and political issues. (Note to STEM people: STEM is not education. The core of education in western culture is the humanities). You know damned well that if they were to debate in the open, they'd lose decisively. Instead, they gain an immunity from criticism through group shaming tactics and the implied threat of being blacklists or reported to HR.

It makes me very very irritated, as I'm one of those people at Google who is not left wing, and who has significant credentials both inside and outside of STEM.

The arrogance with which they flouted California labor law by proudly announcing blacklists and the like is galling. Sadly, the left wing rot goes right to the top.

I was just thinking about the nature of the Herculean task of slaying the Hydra. I note some interesting aspects of the story that echo the story of SJW convergence and manipulation of social media:

1. Cut one head, and two more grow back - so long as the platform is unrestricted, taking single targets only strengthens the resistance (e.g. Je Suis Milo)
2. To slay a head permanently, you must burn the stump before the heads can reform (e.g. IP banning to prevent people from returning)
3. One cannot defeat the hydra alone - Heracles had to enlist Iolaus (e.g. SJW attack mobs, complicity and coordination of seemingly unconnected groups)
4. Heracles was ultimately slain by the Hydra's poison, which he kept as a spoil of victory - this poison caused wounds by his arrows to be incurable (e.g. convergence causes collapse and makes the convergers look like giant, unhireable ponces)

Amazing how, once again, we find parallels between ancient myth and reality.
