Up until this week, a young man named James Damore was gainfully employed as an engineer at tech giant Google. Things went awry for Damore when an internal memo that he had written was leaked online.

In that memo, entitled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber,” Damore – gasp! – had the audacity to question Google’s “politically correct monoculture.”

Needless to say, that didn’t go over too swell with the company’s leftist leadership team.

Hear from James Damore below.

After a ridiculous outcry from employees who acted like Damore had come to their homes and kicked their pets, Damore was relieved of his duties.

As Quartz points out, Google’s decision runs counter to the company’s stated principles of “freedom of expression” and “science-based thinking,” but that’s apparently just a talking point to appease shareholders.

While this may not seem like a big deal in the grand scheme of things, it’s actually another frightening reminder that our society is changing in some pretty unfathomable fashion.

The expression of a differing viewpoint is being treated as if it’s akin to hate speech. If what you have to say doesn’t play well in the liberal echo chamber and so-called ‘safe spaces,’ you’re simply not welcome around those parts.

In the case of Damore, Google seems unwilling to even consider this possibility: What if the young man is right?

While we can easily answer the bias part of the question – an unequivocal yes, the company has an inherent liberal bias – we need to dig a little deeper on the differing traits question.

The New York Post has passed along the details of a recent study by lead author Daniel Amen, a psychiatrist and founder of Amen Clinics in California, and it’s noted as “the biggest brain imaging survey ever conducted.”

Sounds like a pretty big deal, so what did they find? The Post points out a number of the findings, including that “the brains of women are significantly more active than men’s,” and that “the visual and coordination parts of the brain were more active in men.”

Ok, so you’re saying there’s differences? Absolutely. What’s more, men “have higher rates of ADHD, conduct-related problems and incarceration,” while women have “significantly higher rates of Alzheimer’s disease, depression — which itself is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s — and anxiety disorders,” the Post adds.

As most fully functioning adults know, differences are not a big deal. In fact, they help make the world go round. It’s even ok to talk about them. That doesn’t apply if you work at Google though, as the company is much more comfortable with a one size fits all narrative that fits neatly in a safe space.

    Google is a proud member of the Church of SocJus. And the ten commandments of SocJus are very clear and unyielding:
    1. Thou shalt have no Gods or religions before SocJus.
    2. Thou shalt elevate feelings over facts.
    3. Thou shalt honor the victim. Let her be your standard.
    4. Thou shalt venerate the Sacred Seven Identities (women, blacks, hispanics, LGBTQs, native americans, islamic, disabled)
    5. Those of white skin are born under Original Sin and must repent.
    6. Thou shalt not blaspheme SocJus.
    7. Thou shalt employ authority to impose thy virtues.
    8. Thou shalt seek grievances against SocJus to fuel thine Holy Outrage.
    9. Excommunicate all who question, dissent, or disobey.
    10. Those who resist SocJus are enemies who must be destroyed.

    Fascism is all around us. The alt-left has re-branded fascism, it’s now called by the cutest term, political correctness. It’s applied control of thought, speech & action. We thought nothing of it when they rolled out the term “PC” decades ago. PC gave birth to “diversity quotas”! It’s now a monster destroying us. We must fight back! The monster that is PC, diversity qouta’s, etc must be destroyed.

    • Chesapeake

      I complained about political correctness from the start. I would much rather hear the ugly truth that a pretty lie. Now we’ve gone so far into the woods that having a conversation as innocuous about the weather can be a challenge.

      • rusty

        Don’t be controlled.
        Start with “silence u” (on you tube) or the Rubin Report. Easy to digest, honest, open, no hate.
        You’re talking like a victim. We need to stand up against illiberals/regressives. Use fact. Be honest. Don’t be a victim.

        • Chesapeake

          I’ve always said what I think but this last year it hasn’t been easy especially with know-it-all feminists that think that your a traitor if you don’t go along with male bashing. Easy to avoid.

    • rusty

      I love your enthusiasm! I’d like to challenge your thinking.

      Who is “us” when you say we are being destroyed? You’ve drawn a box around yourself. Focus on the left (or as some put it, the regressives or the illibertarians). They are the enemy. Not white, not black, not female or male. However, I would think “the mainstream media” (who are almost universally illibertarian) could be labelled collectively as “them” too.

      I also think you’re better off referring to Marxism as fascism isn’t really the message of the left.

      We need to be aligned. We need to stick to objective truth. The illiberals have taken over universities (see “silence u” on YouTube) and the media. Do not underestimate how big this fight is. If we aren’t educated, if we tell lies, if we rely on as-hominem attacks, we become just like the mainstream media and the other illiberals.

    Fire google. Use another search engine.

    • Noishkel

      Once upon a time Google really was the go to search engine. But in recent years it’s been getting more and more unreliable. Especially if you have use any level of decent privacy settings enabled in your devices running off of Android.

      Hell, there’s a few websites that use filtered google search data and they have better results that from Google direct! Duck Duck Go and Start Page come to mind.

      • Hurry-2016

        Don’t use Google search anymore. Too biased.

  • Heywood Jablowme

    I use yahoo alot. If you have fire fox there are 5 or6 different ones you can choose from. I vote with my feet. And i suggest everyone do the same and if you live by a Google building go there and make your presence felt. Individually we are just sticks but together we form a mighty faggot… A dangerous faggot lol.

  • Free Press Media

    I use to believe the progressive ideal that men and women were exactly the same, but later I realized men and women are different and it’s okay to mention and discuss those differences. What I once rejected, now seems painfully obvious to me. I do think feminists rightfully argue that women can hold any jobs men hold, while at the same time I believe men and women have differences.

    • Cenobite

      Actually feminists argue that we must have parity in fields normally dominated by men like CEO’s, Engineers, and so on. Note they don’t push for parity in ditch diggers, construction workers, and garbage collectors. Now mind you I agree that if a woman wants to become a physicist then they have just as much right as a man but feminists don’t want just women who want to be physicists they want 50% or better of all physicists to be women no matter what any one woman wants for herself.

      • Ruth Gauthier

        Today’s feminism is an abomination to the women’s movement, the foolish feminist today are too stupid to know they have equal rights and are busy making up shit to be offended by. I as a women am offended by feminist.

        • Daniel AkaBob Sanders

          Feminism was largely an abomination from the start. Large portions of the history of things they’ve won are depicted through the lens of a history written by the victors, and revised by the bitter, man-hating ideologues who infected academia in the 60s and 70s- cultivating the cancerous beliefs that took the name- and got their dogma enmeshed in the system to make it match their world view.

          Today’s feminism is literally just the natural outcome of generation raised on the toxic hate-mongering doctrine the last created- which in that was the natural result of the previous generation teaching them their own toxic views.

          Women’s rights advocates, in this, sometimes have a degree of legitimacy: feminists never have.

        • rusty

          Don’t join the “offended” culture. Use words like radical, dishonest, liars, sexist, etc.
          Thank you for speaking up against feminists. I am
          A big fan of the factual feminist (one of the few feminists I have any respect for).
          And she worked with Milo!

      • rusty

        Watch the factual feminist on you tube. She’s slightly biased (she calls herself a feminist which constrains her thinking slightly), however, she’s 99% egalitarian. On that basis alone, I saw she’s fucking awesome. Her videos are short and well reasoned (except her views on topics like Emma Watson who i find very hypocritical).
        Take it from me, watch the factual feminist. Good feminists are almost non-existent, so trust me when I say “listen to her”.

        • Cenobite

          I do listen to her and while she calls herself an equity or freedom feminist she has been excommunicated from the feminist cult. So while she is one of the rare people who call themselves feminist but act more like an egalitarian the rest of the cult has struck her off.

      a few years ago the pop psychology book “Men are from Mars…” was a HUGE hit with “feminists”. P-hats probably burn the guy at the stake nowadays

    Stop using Google. Use Duckduckgo instead. And hope that there will be an alternative to youtube at some point.

  • ytuque

    This study means nothing to the SJWs. When faced with a scientific study contradicting their beliefs, they attack the researchers and and criticize the methodology.

    • rusty

      This would be ok if the media weren’t so left. When you realise that it’s academic institutions and the media who are radicalised, you start to understand the magnitude of the fight.
      You can either play the illiberal game or deal in reliable fact. We need less emotive argument and more facts. We need to take down the media and reclaim the universities.
      Start with “silence u” (we the Internet). 10 minutes may change your life!

  • Noishkel

    Wonder if this person could do the same studies on trans people. At the end of the day there just isn’t a ton of research on the subject. To hell with all the politics of it, the more we learn the more we can treat it.

    • rusty

      Why treat it? You make it sound like choice is a bad thing.

      If anything is bad about this article it’s Al Ajzeera’s reporting (they were superb a few years ago), Google’s censorship and a belief that choice is bad!

      • Noishkel

        Whoa, whoa, whoa. What the hell are you talking about? Nothing I said here at ALL mention a ‘choice’ or a lack there of.

        No, I’m talking about just raw science for the sake of better medial treatment. I would NEVER push a mandatory treatment for any disorder, if such a thing could be in this case. And I’ve read enough science behind GID to know that it’s not something to be fixed with a pill. Well… hormones not withstanding as that’s one of the few things that DOES seem to ‘fix’ the problem at least some. And honestly, that’s what most of the REAL science says. Not the really half assed ‘social science’ that want’s to hold itself over actual hard science.

        No, ultimately the only thing I really advocate for in this is just NOT really shitting on trans people for being trans. It’s a weird condition with some social baggage.

    The Post — “…men “have higher rates of ADHD, conduct-related problems and incarceration,” while women have “significantly higher rates of Alzheimer’s disease, depression — which itself is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s — and anxiety disorders”

    How much more “significantly?” Why do I suspect this yet another pretext to justify keeping men as lords of the manor.

    You seem to implying something you’re not prepared to explicitly state. (I may be wrong.)
