James Damore takes on Google’s Thought Police

I was finally able to read fired Google Employee's James Damore's entire 10 page opinion piece .

Previously, like most, I was left to the Left leaning pieces (who just wanted to beat up on James) or the Right leaning pieces (who culturally scared of their own shadow and will run away from any fight.) Both showed snippets and then provided gave their synopsis which left out a lot of substance. The whole document (although 10 MS Word formatted pages) doesn't take too long to read and you have to read it to get the full view.

UK Daily Mail provided some decent reporting (just the facts) but then gave the whole document to read at the end.

See the article and document here.

James Damore ideologically martyred himself to take on what he calls the Google Ideological echo chamber.

He focused on sameness thru Diversity which opposes success and advancement through meritocracy by abilities. He noted Googles admitted lack of female leadership in the upper ranks (something Google laments) but gave a very reasoned argument why this is the case. His statements of biology are not crazy or necessarily out of the bounds of reason.

From his footnotes:

7: Communism promised to be both morally and economically superior to capitalism, but every attempt became morally corrupt and an economic failure. As it became clear that the working class of the liberal democracies wasn't going to overthrow their 'capitalist oppressors,' the Marxist intellectuals transitioned from class warfare to gender and race politics. The core oppressor-oppressed dynamics remained, but now the oppressor is the 'white, straight, cis-gendered patriarchy.'

9: Yes, in a national aggregate, women have lower salaries than men for a variety of reasons . For the same work though, women get paid just as much as men. Considering women spend more money than men and that salary represents how much the employee sacrifices (e.g. more hours, stress, and danger), we really need to rethink our stereotypes around power.

Minus the more subjective-opinion statement of women spending more than men, his last statement about needing rethink Stereotypes around power is a siren call. It is a call that sends the thought-police into a tizzy because accusing people of violating diversity (not thinking correctly) is their only tool. (See George Orwell, 1984.)

I found it a well thought out and reasoned piece.

It's only sexist because he dared take on the thought police.

Trump makes a horrible idol

People are fallible. They will just as soon fail as succeed.

I read a lot of content concerning Donald Trump, either in the News, email push content, or Social Media. Good , bad, or ugly. For as many people exist on earth, so exist that many opinions. Even watching a America's Got Talent you can't escape the sharp, toxic opinions.

I read a recent blog from National Review titled "Trump, Party of One": a critical review after several changes and threats to the Donald Trump Presidency. Author Jonah Goldberg wants to gloat to those who trusted in Trump: "You {blanked} Up."

There are Ever Trumpers, Never Trumpers, and Haters. Jonah Goldberg appears to fall into the Never Trumper camp, and all of them view full faith in some man (or woman) as the fulfillment of their lives. Or 'our' lives – depends which side of an issue you land. This is called idolatry. Those idols will fail you.

The Ever-Trumpers

The "Ever" Trumper Camp (or even the hopeful Republican camp) put their hope that men filing the roles of a leadership office will do the right thing based on their pledged allegiance. People like John McCain blow that theory straight out of the water when they vote No on such a "My side" issue. You expect them to go one way, and then they go the opposite and let you down.

It's never good when our emotional well-being is tied to the actions of any person, who is bound to fail us.

The Never-Trumpers

These are those Republicans or Conservatives. Trump is below their taste and they relish the thought of Trump failing, sticking it in the eye of "Ever" Trumpers. With any occurrence with he the appearance of a misstep they do an "I Told You So" gyration – pointing fingers at his supporters, the "believers". This stems from their misguided view : Ever-Trumps idolizing "The Don". Some cases may be.

I am tempted to think of the Never-Trumpers as more brow-beating self-aggrandizing punks. Eric Erichson is one that comes quickly to mind. It's his disdain for Trumps behavior, not his positions. But he does the gyration and is quite proud of himself for it and will promote his own superiority for having not chose the populist path.


For all intents and purposes, this is just a hate group. They hate anything that is not Leftist, bending, twisting and perverting what every thinking person with a soul knows as "tradition" or natural order.

This group just hates non-leftist leaders in positions of Power. When Hillary Clinton lost failing to replace Barack Obama (their functional god) as President, they melted down and have continued that pattern of evil behavior since losing. Burning and vandalizing cities. Holding rallies threatening physical harm to the Donald and his supporters. Serious bad behaving, unreasonable, evil tantrums.

They see Donald as 'god' on the right who defeated Hillary, the successor their 'god' on the left.


Man was made to worship or put our faith in something. Something beyond us we can rest in. The leftists flat out worship Barack Obama and we looking forward to doing the same with Hillary Clinton. Some of the Right sees Trump as a Knight riding on a White Horse of war. The Never Trumpers like to poke fun at the 'god' of the Right.

Seriously, if you look back far or deep enough into anyones lives we will see failure. No one is perfect. Crowing is a liar calling someone else a liar. Stupid position. That goes back to the Garden. I heard a pastor speak one time about even saved Christians: crooked sticks drawing straight lines.

Not just Trump, but any person, makes a horrible idol. THEY WILL FAIL YOU.

Put your faith in God. His promises are true and he will never fail us.

“When Peter entered, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him. But Peter lifted him up, saying, "Stand up; I too am a man."”
