Google Should Promote This Guy—They'll Probably Fire Him Instead

Common Sense has left the building. It was escorted out by HR. Actually, it was the Director of “Diversity, Integrity & Governance.”

Common Sense has been in the process of leaving for a long time, but it just had to clear out its desk. As Common Sense put its stuff in a box, it was surprised at the clutter --- lots of things that weren’t on its desk when it first started working here --- you know, stuff like what marriage is, a baby’s right to live, gender differences, religious freedom, capitalism, socialism, basic First Amendment rights.

As a society we’ve reached an absurd, dangerous place. Thank God, it’s not absurd everywhere yet. There is a lot of common sense left in many corners of the country, but not in some of our biggest institutions and most powerful companies. And that’s why this internal Google memo drama matters.

Late last week a male senior software engineer --- we don’t know his name --- wrote a lengthy memo that he shared with colleagues titled, “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber.” He basically criticized the company’s diversity policies that he says actually result in reverse discrimination and suppress conservative political views. This kind of progressive insanity has become the default norm in many of these places.

His memo is thoughtful and well-written, but it’s 10 pages long so I’m just going to give you some of the highlights:

• He starts out by saying, “People generally have good intentions, but we all have biases which are invisible to us. Thankfully, open and honest discussion with those who disagree can highlight our blind spots and help us grow, which is why I wrote this document. Google has several biases and honest discussion about these biases is being silenced by the dominant ideology.”

• “Google’s Left bias has created a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence. This silence removes any checks against encroaching extremist and authoritarian policies.”

• Later, this guy has the audacity to point out that men and women have biological and personality differences. I guess when Common Sense has left the building, you have to get back to the basics of the birds & the bees. He says, “We need to stop assuming that gender gaps imply sexism.”

• Then he points out some “non-discriminatory ways to reduce the gender gap,” which is a section many of his critics apparently missed, like, “Unfortunately, as long as tech and leadership remain high status, lucrative careers, men may disproportionately want to be in them. Allowing and truly endorsing (as part of our culture) part time work, though, can keep more women in tech.”

• He lists some of the harms of Google’s biases like, “Programs, mentoring, and classes only for people with a certain gender or race,” and “A high priority queue and special treatment for ‘diversity’ candidates.”

• “In highly progressive environments, conservatives are a minority that feel like they need to stay in the closet to avoid open hostility. We should empower those with different ideologies to be able to express themselves.”

• “Microaggression training incorrectly and dangerously equates speech with violence and isn’t backed by evidence.”

• “Once we acknowledge that not all differences are socially constructed or due to discrimination, we open our eyes to a more accurate view of the human condition which is necessary if we actually want to solve problems.”

Good for this guy. That takes guts. What a conservative rebel hero, right? Except that he’s not a conservative --- he describes himself as a “classical liberal.”

So what has been Google’s reaction to this “classic liberal” --- one of their own who dared to rock the progressive boat? Well, he says, “Despite what the public response seems to have been, I’ve gotten many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude for bringing up these very important issues which they agree with but would never have the courage to say or defend because of our shaming culture and the possibility of being fired. This needs to change.”

After reading the memo, one livid female co-worker tweeted: “Still shaking in anger… If HR does nothing in this case, I will consider leaving this company for real for the first time in five years.”

Any resistance to ideas like this protectionist, diversity stuff at Google is read as hate speech and worthy of firing. We’ve got to stop making that huge leap in logic.

Saturday evening, Google released an official response to the viral memo from Danielle Brown, their new VP of “Diversity, Integrity & Governance.” She wrote: “Many of you have read an internal document shared by someone in our engineering organization, expressing views on the natural abilities and characteristics of different genders, as well as whether one can speak freely of these things at Google. And like many of you, I found that it advanced incorrect assumptions about gender. I’m not going to link to it here as it’s not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages.”

Google translation: This company does not allow any reasoned argument that questions our vacuum-sealed progressive agenda, so shut the hell up and get in line.

Brown continues, “Part of building an open, inclusive environment means fostering a culture in which those with alternative views, including different political views, feel safe sharing their opinions. But that discourse needs to work alongside the principles of equal employment found in our Code of Conduct, policies, and anti-discrimination laws.”

Google translation: If your “alternate views” include things like conservative politics and/or believing women are different than men, you’ll feel safer discussing them outside a 200-mile radius of our campus.

Google should thank this guy and promote him. This is the kind of dialogue a common sense company would want --- a respectful, intelligent, well-thought-out memo. It will be a miracle if this Google guy survives the week without getting fired.

This “diversity governance” culture is way overcompensating for the mistakes of America’s past. How long do we have to flog ourselves for past sins? Where’s the grace to move on? Now we’ve overcompensated to the point that a memo asserting that men and women are made differently and might perform differently in the work environment is considered radical!

Diversity is not a virtue. Diversity is not a principle, although progressives are hell-bent on trying to make it one. And saying diversity is not a virtue or a principle is not racist, or sexist, or homophobic.

We need more brave people like this Google guy, on both sides of the aisle, to stand up for common sense because that battle is only going to intensify. But we also need to sit down and reason together, Left and Right, while we still can, while there’s still enough freedom of speech left in the tank. Let’s listen --- we might both be surprised by what the other has to say.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
