Lawsuit against Google for discriminating against white male conservatives

James Damore, a former Google engineer

I am not surprised that this day has come given the widespread hostility towards conservative views and white men seen every day on social media and in the MSM. It is considered politically correct to discriminate against conservatives on social media and to mock and abuse white men so it is not surprising to me that Google may have nurtured that same culture inside their company.

James Damore,?a former Google engineer who was fired in August […] claims: that Google unfairly discriminates against white men whose political views are unpopular with its executives.

Damore is joined in the suit by another former Google engineer named David Gudeman, who spent three years with Google working on a query engine.[…]

The lawsuit […] says it aims to represent all employees of Google who?ve been discriminated against due to their ?perceived conservative political views by Google,? due to ?their male gender by Google? and ?due to their Caucasian race by Google.?

More specifically, it accuses Google of singling out, mistreating and systematically punishing and terminating employees who ?expressed views deviating from the majority view at Google on political subjects raised in the workplace and relevant to Google?s employment policies and its business, such as ?diversity? hiring policies, ?bias sensitivity? or ?social justice???

Damore isn?t holding back any punches here. According to his filing, Google employs ?illegal hiring quotas to fill its desired percentages of women and favored minority candidates, and openly shames managers of business units who fail to meet their ?quotas?in the process, openly denigrating male and Caucasian employees as less favored than others.?

The suit also claims that ?numerical presence of women celebrated at Google? was based ?solely due to their gender? while the ?presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with ?boos? during companywide weekly meetings.?

Somewhat redundantly, it adds that Damore, Gudeman and ?other class members? were ?ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males.?

The lawsuit is seeking monetary, non-monetary and punitive remedies.

[…] Google said it fired Damore for violating its code of conduct and advancing ?harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.? Damore meanwhile began a kind of press tour, denouncing the company for being close-minded and worse. In an interview with CNBC, for example, he compared being a conservative at Google to ?being gay in the 1950s.?

The suit isn?t the only one Google is having to defend itself against. In September, three female former Google employees?filed a lawsuit?against the company, saying it pays women at all levels of the company less than men, as well as assigns them lower job tiers with less opportunity for upward mobility.[…]

I find that very funny as on the one hand one lawsuit alleges that Google hired some women “illegally” for their gender not their abilities but on the other hand, it is also alleged in another lawsuit that Google paid them less than men. If it is true that Google paid the women less then that will only strengthen the other lawsuit’s allegation that many women were not hired for their abilities.
