#MEGOOGLE

A complete SJW fail at Google has infuriated Googlers:
At Google’s weekly staff meeting Thursday, the top question employees voted to ask Larry Page, a co-founder, and Sundar Pichai, the chief executive, was one about sexual harassment.

“Multiple company actions strongly indicate that protection of powerful abusers is literally and figuratively more valuable to the company than the well-being of their victims,” read the question, which was displayed at the meeting, according to people who attended. “What concrete and meaningful actions will be taken to turn this around?”

The query was part of an outpouring from Google employees after a New York Times article published Thursday reported how the company had paid millions of dollars in exit packages to male executives accused of misconduct and stayed silent about their transgressions. In the case of Andy Rubin, creator of Android mobile software, the company gave him a $90 million exit package even after Google had concluded that a misconduct claim against him was credible.

While tech workers, executives and others slammed Google for the revelations, nowhere was condemnation of the internet giant’s actions more pointed than among its own employees.
I don't know why anyone is even remotely surprised. Male feminists always behave badly around women. If they understood women or knew how to behave around them, they wouldn't be male feminists.

I do enjoy that rank stink of SJW hypocrisy in the evening.

I know the robber barons of old were bad, but they've got nothing on our modern technocrats. NBC at least had a contract with Megyn Kelly that said they had to pay her $69M money to go away. Google didn't have to give this guy anything, and gave him $90M just because screw all the people who can't throw that kind of money around.

Blogger Johnny October 27, 2018 5:11 PM  

>>and gave him $90M...

Huge severance packages have become ordinary. A really tiny example would be our local banker in a town of about a thousand people. He got caught giving a loan to a contractor who was a relative. Okay if disclosed, but it wasn't and went bad. They gave him a 150k just to leave when he should have been flat out fired. Not exactly Jack Welch. He cashed in for 417 million. Got to be a member of the right club I guess.

Blogger Haxo Angmark October 27, 2018 5:27 PM  

my only thoughts were "who the devil is ((('Andy Rubin')))"

and what on earth would Andy do with 90 million Jewbucks?

the latter ? answered itself quickly:

buy politicians, so Andy and his Tribe can loot even bigger.

Blogger Ransom Smith October 27, 2018 5:37 PM  

Of note, bot long after he left Google, Andy Rubin founded Essential.
Makers of the Essential phone. Which runs, you guessed it, Google Android.

His old buddies at Google basically gave him 90m so he could start his own company and stay connected.

Blogger Johnny October 27, 2018 5:46 PM  

These severance packages are written into the original employment contract. The board of directors are the people who are supposed to look out for stockholders interests in these things, and it is self evident that system is broken for most large companies.

Blogger Miguel October 27, 2018 5:52 PM  

True.

Blogger Barbarossa October 27, 2018 6:08 PM  

I took a corporate governance class about 20 years ago. The professor blasted the system. CEOs getting pals to sit on the board. Or filling the board with women and minorities to look 'progressive'. Hardly a soul on these boards has any clue as to the industry the company is in, much less how the company itself works. Nothing has improved since then, and, arguably, it's gotten worse. No shareholder should kid himself that the board is looking out for his interests.

Man, am I enjoying the schadenfreude or what? Suck it, NPCs. You made this monster.

No one who has been paying attention does.

Andy who? Agreed with post above. Basically funded his new venture.

For most of my life, I was quite dumb enough to take people at their word. If a feminist man says "respek wahmen," he respects women. Women must really respect such men. Who could possibly say one thing and do another??

I enjoy laughing at the old me.

Men whom claim feminism/gender equality as their credo are as horrible as gamma ragers.

Terrible men.

The protection of the patriarchy is always best for women, children and our elderly in a nice marriage.

A google or gagle meeting, those people are so void of common sense or self awareness its shocking as America has endured a rough week with the left's hoaxing games.

It is not funny and goodle to bigsocialtwitter are expected to be abusers of women. Who can imagine working there along with their stupid meetings.

It's time for Larry and Sundar to go. It's time for strong women to be the co-founders of Google.

Blogger Ford Prefect October 27, 2018 8:51 PM  

@7: re your local banker: any number of reasons they may have handled it like that.
1. Gutless board.
2. Calculated that the legal cost fighting an expected lawsuit would be too high.
3. Given it's a small town, a legal entanglement might be highly divisive.
4. The perp might know where the bodies are buried.

Wow! How about a loaded question?

Since you are a psycho bodybuilder, that probably tortured small animals as a boy, and your estranged wife has already said that you are an abusive bastard (and said she was fat once)....what concrete and meaningful actions has the company taken to make you impotent through chemical castration? Has it affected your memory, as far as you can tell?
(How many fingers am I holding up?)

Blogger Jay in DC October 27, 2018 10:07 PM  

This is fan-fucking-tabulous and not at all unexpected. This is the absolute best part of the NPC / SJW life cycle.

The 'own goal' part where they start to cannibalize the corporation and pull the cards of the executives for not having sufficient levels of faith, devotion, and zealotry to The Religion.

This is when you see CEOs and C level executives apologizing to their mob mentality employees with public struggle sessions and the company generally starts the long slow death crawl towards irrelevance as no actual work product is produced.

Good times boyos! There will be A LOT more of this coming but seeing Google go down will be one of the best in history.

Blogger eclecticme October 27, 2018 10:09 PM  

The Google top brass should admit guilt, apologize, and promise to do better. That always works so well ......

"If they understood women or knew how to behave around them, they wouldn't be male feminists."

And they probably wouldn't be working for a Left-wing pigpen like Google either.

I'm glad that the "boys will be boys" ethic still applies somewhere! -- and these silicon valley types are supposed to be trend setters, so I guess that there is hope for us regular boys.

You have lots of company. All of us formerly high trust huwhite people who have all too slowly learned that the world is rife with snakes.

Unfortunately there are still a whole lot of those quaintly clueless people out there. Of course most of them are rather old. (I'm 55.)

It's a damned shame, but we all have to become highly cynical and untrusting to survive in this world that has been overrun by liars, cheats, and sociopaths.

That is what we teach in our schools. In the classroom there is somebody who knows and that person is not you. Plus with so many children and so few adults regimen is necessary. In the old days when they used the stick it was more obvious. Perhaps that was better. Now they do it covertly.

To develop a degree of insight, the first thing that must be learned is that what you were taught in school ain't necessarily so.

Lie #1: What Germany did in the 1930's and 40's was entirely without any cause, and was completely due to irrational bigotry and hatred, and nothing more.

Lie #1 We know what we're doing.

Blogger Dirk Manly October 28, 2018 4:05 PM  

Like the Zeroeth Law of Thermodynamics, I think that qualifies Lie #0. It's so fundamental to all of the other lies, that it's easy to overlook, and has to be retroactively numbered to 0.
