Google’s LGBTQ+ Totalitarians

Posted on | June 27, 2019 | 1 Comment


A perfect example of how the SJWs have taken over at Google:

Dozens of Google employees have sent an open letter to the organizers of San Francisco’s annual Pride parade urging them to kick Google’s company float out of the parade.
In a letter posted to Medium, the employees wrote of a work atmosphere where concerns from LGBTQ employees are regularly brushed aside.
“We have spent countless hours advocating for our company to improve policies and practices regarding the treatment of LGBTQ+ persons, the depiction of LGBTQ+ persons, and harassment and hate speech directed at LGBTQ+ persons, on YouTube and other Google products,” the letter read.

Stephen Kruiser summarizes: “The gist of the letter isn’t that Google’s LGBTQ+ employees are being treated badly at work, but that the company isn’t stringent enough about cracking down on WRONG SPEECH on YouTube.” In other words, Google hires gay people who then seek to damage the company they work for, in order to pressure the company to engage in totalitarian censorship of anyone they don’t like.

Now do you understand what the firing of James Damore was really about? The LGBT community has become toxic in its politics, abandoning any pretense of seeking “tolerance” and instead demanding that the rest of us obey their diktats or else be banished into outer darkness.

Just the other day, a survey found “that young Americans — generally regarded as the most socially tolerant generation — are less comfortable with LGBTQ people than in previous years. The survey . . . found that Americans aged 18 to 34 who say they are comfortable interacting with queer people fell from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 — even among those whom the report considers ‘allies’ to the LGBTQ community.” This is very much like the little-mentioned backlash that followed the triumph of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Prior to the mid-1960s, sympathy for the plight of black people in the South under Jim Crow was widespread in the North. But after passage of the landmark civil-rights legislation in 1964 and 1965, there occurred a wave of urban riots across the North, and rather suddenly the Yankees realized that maybe “integration” wasn’t going to be a risk-free process for them. These were the years (1966-69) when radicals like Eldridge Cleaver abandoned non-violence and intergrationist rhetoric, instead demanding “Black Power,” and threatening violence in pursuit of that goal.

So now, after their triumph in the Obergefell case, LGBT activists have taken a similar radical path, and even young people who consider themselves “allies” are becoming uncomfortable with them.

Somebody should warn Taylor Swift she’s on the wrong side of history.
