Progressivism: It's 1984 at Google (Updated already)

The word for today is "monoculture". 

David Limbaugh "Google’s firing of software engineer James Damore for daring to express politically incorrect ideas in an internal memo is the latest example of the political left’s tyrannical propensity to suppress speech, thought and dissent.
"Almost as troubling as the left’s policing is its apparent obliviousness toward its own hypocrisy and the danger it poses to the liberal exchange of ideas. While constitutional issues may not be involved in the Google case because no state action is involved, moral shaming has become a chilling cudgel in the hands of leftist-dominated institutions.
"In his memo, Damore notes that Google’s political bias silences dissenting opinion supposedly to shield employees from offensive ideas and protect their psychological safety. “But shaming into silence,” writes Damore, “is the antithesis of psychological safety. This silencing has created an ideological echo chamber where some ideas are too sacred to be honestly discussed.”
"Damore concedes that all people have biases but that open and honest discussion can highlight these biases and help us grow. He says he wrote the memo to encourage such a discussion about Google’s biases, a discussion that is being silenced by “the dominant ideology.”
"Damore opines that both the political left and right have moral biases. “Only facts and reason can shed light on these biases,” he says, “but when it comes to diversity and inclusion, 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.' ” . . .

. . . "Well, then, can this politically correct diversity attitude be traced to Google's founders, oppressive white males Larry Page and Sergey Brin, in search of social justice compensation?  Well, they both have minority backgrounds and heritage – Jewish – and Brin is also a legal immigrant from Russia.

"Whoops again!  Wrong religion and ethnicity for politically correct diversity victimhood, so they too have been silent about this incident." . . .

Update: James Damore has an ´above decent’chance of winning his legal case against Google  "James Damore, the man fired by Google after he published a manifesto that suggested women may have a disadvantage in tech because of their biology, may well prevail in the legal case he has filed against his former employer."
