Fired Google engineer James Damore says he was smeared and attacked for cross-examine what he calls the company’s liberal political orthodoxy, peculiarly around the merits of diversity.
Now outspoken diversity preaches at Google say that they are being targeted by a small group of their coworkers in an attempt to stillnes deliberations about ethnic and gender diversity.
In interviews with WIRED, 15 current Google employees accuse coworkers of inflaming strangers to persecute rank-and-file employees who are minority advocates, including queer and transgender works. Since August, screenshots from Google’s internal argument meetings, including personal information, have been displayed on locates including Breitbart and Vox Popoli, a blog run by alt-right author Theodore Beale, who goes by the epithet Vox Day. Other screenshots were included in a 161 -page litigation that Damore filed in January, to suggest that Google discriminates against white-hots, males, and conservatives.
What followed, the employees say, was a ripple of molestation. On forums like 4chan, representatives related advocates’ lists with their social-media accountings. At least three works had their phone numbers, homes, and deadnames( a transgender person’s list prior to transitioning) uncovered. Google site reliability architect Liz Fong-Jones, a trans girl, says she was the objectives of hassle, including murderous menaces and cheapening insults based on gender identity, race, and sexual direction. More than a dozen pages of personal information about another hire were announced to Kiwi Farms, which New York has called “the web’s biggest society of stalkers.”
Meanwhile, inside Google, the diversification proposes say some hires have “weaponized human resources” by exhorting them into inflammatory evidences, which are then captured and reported to HR for violating Google’s mores around civility or for piquing white men.
