Mailvox: Googlers exit Google

I was aware that more people are leaving Google because they don't want to deal with the lunatic SJWs that are running the asylum any longer. The hapless Sundar Pikachu simply cannot control them, despite them being a very small, very vocal, very crazy minority of the employees. This email from a reader confirms what I'd already been hearing.
I had an interesting encounter with an ex-Googler this afternoon. A man overheard me and a colleague talking about Fortran at a coffee shop, and he started chatting with us about computer programming. Turns out, he's an ex-Google developer.

My colleague asked him what he thought of the James Damore situation, and he surprised us a little by responding that that was the main reason he'd quit Google. He said he didn't want to be part of an environment where people were not free to express reasonable opinions. When I asked him if there were others at Google who felt the same way, he said, yes, most of them. Most of them. It may look like all of Google has gone insane, but it's really a minority of loud, obnoxious SJWs ruling things there.

It sounds crazy that a few mentally ill tyrants could dominate a place like Google, but this dovetails with something Jordan Peterson points out in a recent interview with Australian ex-deputy PM John Anderson. Peterson says that tyrants, whether petty or large, are not psychologically equipped to deal with resistance. I believe you've said something to this effect in your SJW books. If anyone needs more convincing, well, we have a man whose expertise is human behavior and who has extensively studied the great tyrannies of the 20th century telling us that tyrants will cave most of the time when they are resisted. But most people don't resist, because they figure it will cost them too much. Peterson counters that resistance costs comparatively little when you consider what will happen if you don't do anything.

This was underscored by my ex-Google acquaintance's parting comment, that if even 10% of people in the tech world actively resisted the SJWs, that nonsense would come to an end very quickly.
Of course, this is true of SJWs and the larger culture as well. Look at how the Alt-Right's resistance has made significant inroads into the SJWs' ability to intimidate and destroy their targets. The conservative strategy of retreat, complain, condemn, and cry does not and will never work; it is intrinsically and inevitably defeatist.

As with most bullies, a metaphorical punch or two in the mouth is sufficient to dissuade the average SJW. As evidence, I offer the observation that SJWs have tended to steer well clear of me ever since I published SJWAL.

Speaking of punching bullies in the mouth, three more men have joined the lawsuit against Google:
Three new plaintiffs have joined former Google employee James Damore’s lawsuit against the company, alleging gender, racial, and political discrimination. Manuel Amador, Stephen McPherson, and Michael Burns, who were all job applicants turned down by Google, have joined the lawsuit.
Given what we know about Microsoft and Pikachu's background, the lawyers for the plaintiffs should dig deep for any potential unlawful favoritism being shown to applicants with Indian backgrounds.

The problem at Google is that the SJW rot starts at the very top, especially Ms. YouTube, the grand censor of the company. And she isn't the exception in Silicon Valley. She is more the rule. Adult oversight could clean this mess up in no time but the lunatics are running the asylum which is why resistance is futile in a place like Google as Damore's exp shows.

In that regard, Clay Travis was taking issue with a USA Today article saying women shouldn't be allowed to be cheerleaders. He was asking the question should he just ignore these stupid articles or attack them. I think he needs to read your books.

Pikachu could control them, but this is a kind with the "good immigrants" who still have an alien culture. So what is Shiva is going about smashing everything including the Bramhins? It's nature! There is now a caste system, the problem is normal white and asian males are the untouchables.

Most of the censoring is now done by an algorithm that is the same across Youtube, google, FB, and all social media. It was written by 3 letter agency (C_I_A). Like Mockingbird and Hollywood, they are owned and kept to the narrative as much as possible, and the exec snakes are just icing.

Googlers should unionize. Along the lines of Autoworkers or Steelworkers.

The problem with resistance is the SJWs own HR and the review and firing process. That is why the 1% of the thought police can control the populace - they are armed.

High caste Indians vs SJW's? Who wins?

My theory on this is that the Indians know they are immune to the SJW mobs, so they are going to use the shriek mobs to drive out the Americans, so they can be replaced by more Indians until the SJW's are the only ones left and then they will be kicked to the curb.

Why blacks don't sue over favoritism towards Indians I don't know. Indians are like a plague of locusts and will only hire other Indians or perhaps white women to hit on.

@tz "SJWs own HR and the review and firing process. That is why the 1% of the thought police can control the populace - they are armed."

As the Damore case is proving, this doesn't matter. Discrimination cuts both ways, as the SJWs are now learning.

Isn't big tech kind of like big auto circa the 70s?

Of course we on the Right would never dare ask the SJW thought tyrants if the people of color and they were in agreement because a true principled conservative would never ever attempt to divide and conquer, the horror.

Rule of action: Use any legal means to hurt the Left.

I did that, and the effectiveness of my action surpassed my expectation. I've posted on this blog about a leftist who lost his job. Well, he has been unemployed for 10.5 months. Now, my hunch is that he has given up looking for a job and is going to be a househusband. That leftist is going to be underemployed or unemployed for the rest of his life.

Blogger tuberman April 19, 2018 9:38 AM  

The eternal optimist, I am convinced this will roll over, and when it does the amounts of passive people that support the SJW side will have huge amounts who will shame them (the hard-core Left-overs). What SJWs have a hard time with will be... shaming by many women. Many minorities will sit on the side-lines watching or look on to pick up cheap power, or some will join the attack.

We have a situation now where many White Females actually voted for PDJT, as an example, but at their jobs are neutral or claim to be anti-Trump (neurotic). These women also suppress their working husbands. It will move further Right, gradually at first, then a major roll will happen as more truth comes out and people get exposed to these reveals. Even if Blacks hate Whites, only the dingiest of the dig-bat Blacks will ignore the astounding truths of what the Natural World Order has been doing to Black and Brown children world wide. They will either get apathetic, or many will join in the hatred for the NWO's strongest representatives, or the DNC and the Left in general.

The Alt-Right will have to make sure the "conservatives" that are part of this are not let off, and are condemned too. There is yet little proof of the child trafficking and the horrors connected, but if looked at as in the UK, and what's happened to the school girls there....Two things:

1)The UK school girls are just an extension of whats going on World Wide.
2)What is going on World Wide is even more horrible than in the UK, even though the UK horrors are bad enough.

The NWO, and by extension SJWs, the Left, and the DNC are major players in all of this, but there are many others (all connected by money to the NWO).

Even if some believe the horror stories about child trafficking are merely "Conspiracy Theories", we have the example of the UK school girls (11 to 16 year olds taken right out of school) right in front of us, and that's proven reality.

The missing children in Haiti alone are over 18,000 black children, and HRC's friends were sneaking children out. This is not just Haiti, it is WW, and will be exposed.

Av, yes MPAI, but we are talking avalanche here, and the passives and the idiots get carried along in the debris, even against their wills. Beyond voting, this will be a major attitude change, against the Left. This will go far past the Treason charges starting to come out now.

Concerning MPAI. I always felt a bit out of it growing up. When I learned more about IQ it all made sense. Even at my mere bright level, only 15 of the next 100 people I meet at random will be at or above my level. Luckily, the cultural sorting process make interpersonal encounters less random, and life more liveable. The upshot is: I understand why it would be a very good idea to restrict voting rights. I am fine with an impartial computerized test to prove familiarization with English and with the provisions of the Constitution before one is allowed to chose our political leaders. Increasing voting age to 25 and above would also be a good idea. That is when the male frontal lobe finally matures and full exercise of judgment is possible.

I have long held that the minimum voting age for an office should be equal to the minimum age required to hold that office.

Since only men should vote, the age at which female frontal lobes finally mature doesn't matter.

@21 A Cuban chick I met in Spain a decade ago asked me why we allow anyone to vote (she loves America but couldn't wrap her head around that). PC was a new thing in Spain so I had to explain the concept of political incorrectness to her. Agreed on raising the voting age.

No. Look for illegal content and then make sure every mechanism of oppression they have created, is used against them. This is being done right now, AND IT IS WORKING.

Your position is that sure, a woman could carry a gun, but wouldn't it be funner if she instead said something cutting about her rapists sexual prowess?

No. It won't save her and it won't turn the repeat offender into a perfectly innocent lump of carrion.

How much of the problem with any SJW converged organization is top down?

I had thought that the problems with Disney were just Bob Iger, Kathleen Kenedy and maybe a few others.

I was childishly hoping that things could be fixed there once Iger is finally forced into retirement, (don't bother to mention his prospective presidential run. He's not serious).

Maybe the Board of directors would finally yank his chain or just get rid of him out right. Then I looked at the Disney BOD and my heart sank.

Disney's board is now made up of Iger;

General Motors Mary Barra;

Carlyle Group executive Susan Arnold;

Blackberry CEO John Chen;

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey;

WE Family Offices CEO Maria Elena Lagomasino;

Est'ee Lauder chairman of global affairs Fred Langhammer;

Potbelly Sandwich Works CEO Aylwin Lewis;

former Seagram CFO Robert Matschullat;

Nike CEO Mark Parker;

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg;

former Starbucks CEO Orin Smith.

The turnover at the big tech firms is pretty significant. Part of the big perks and pay is that they're fairly terribly places to work, aside even from the SJW garbage.

It's pretty well known that you don't have to work hard to pull people from Facebook or Microsoft these days. Amazon has divisions with good retention, but they're also difficult to work for.

Microsoft used to have a system where the bottom 10% of performers were automatically cut each year. It lead to massive churn and unhappiness because very project you knew there were a few people who were angling to make sure you looked like the rube who needed to be cut.

It's pretty well known that you don't have to work hard to pull people from Facebook or Microsoft these days. Amazon has divisions with good retention, but they're also difficult to work for.

OTOH, it's getting hard to find anyone good coming out of those companies. We've been singularly unimpressed with Amazon developers. MSFT has long had the problem of people getting stale and outdated on tech, and now that they're hiring fewer outstanding recruits to begin with, the folks coming out don't have the horsepower to overcome the stagnation.


Microsoft used to have a system where the bottom 10% of performers were automatically cut each year. It lead to massive churn and unhappiness because very project you knew there were a few people who were angling to make sure you looked like the rube who needed to be cut.

Technically you had to land in the bottom 10% two years in a row, but yes, it led to massive morale problems, not just among the workerbees, but the front line managers too who hated destroying their teams like that. It was one reason MSFT got such bad managers - people who would do things like intentionally hire a sacrificial 3.0 (the review score of the bottom 10%) thrived.

I think the general political elite have become so used to non-action that they've literally committed treason in broad daylight; now imagine what they're doing in the shadows.

So, yeah, I have no doubt in my mind that you're right in that these illegal are happening; I hope they're going to be prosecuted... but I also remember how the Comey Speech essentially confirmed unequivocally that political connections are more important [institutionally] than Justice.

Resist? Most people are anti-fragile and the power the SJWs hold is tremendous. Remember the Te Party and the testimony of the Texas small business owner at Congress who tried to start a small group and had over 1 dozen government audits in retaliation! Think General Flynn thought he was immune-- now having sold his house to pay legal bills. I am sorry, but few of us can resist. We can change jobs and even change states but the swamp still rules and most resisters are drowned in the mud of the swamp without publicity. There is a reason VD wrote two books on not being eaten by the SJW hunger.

Some do what we can... but we still have to earn a living and not be blackballed. Those of us who are trying to raise a Christian family in the heathen West. Of course the best way is to raise our part of the next generation as Christians. But here in the US, an anomaly like Trump and Reagan only come once a generation and need our support to do what they can while they last. VD-- he is one in 100,000 and can go his own way, but the rest, above average or not still need the society to exist and have to hide.

Those Indians ... some I know act surprised, like it's a recent thing. Sorry gotta break it to them, us white male trench nerds have been watching them come in droves; not only that, but that they also only hire among themselves once they get a foothold.

After being laid off and not able to get back into IT, I had to change careers to something that can't be outsourced. Retraining was a bear, had bad days, but was able to get past that. But not everyone can do what I do nor can everyone do something else that can't be outsourced. I'm sorry, they're going to be roadkill.
