Bigots lament: Google unfair to bigots

There are times when one searches for just the right analogy to put something in just the right perspective, but the search is in vain. So it is with me as I struggle for just the right set of words to describe the fellow who circulated a memo among his fellow Google employees explaining that the company should not be seeking a diverse mix of employees, because women and minorities just can’t measure up to white men. This is the part that has me racking my brain in vain:

The document’s author also wrote that employees with conservative political beliefs are discriminated against at Google and lamented about how “leftist” ideology is harmful. They argue that the company should have a more “open” culture where their viewpoint would be welcomed. The document said that improving racial and gender diversity is less important than making sure conservatives feel comfortable expressing themselves at work.

The poor bigot is upset because he’s not made to feel welcome. He simply can’t understand why women wouldn’t welcome his view that they should not be welcomed at Google. Somewhere, there’s someone who can come up with the perfect analogy to encapsulate the absurdity of that position, but alas, I am not that person.

Somewhat off point, I recommend the Motherboard blog to which I’ve linked. Interesting tech news leavened with a consistent left wing perspective.

    For more on right-wing whining and hypocrisy, have a look at Paul Krugman’s blog entry from July 12, 2017, titled “We Don’t Need No Education”, in which the (much-maligned) liberal bias of our universities is compared to the (never-mentioned) political biases within our military.
