Social Justin Warriors

A Google employee describes what it's like to work for the company (which has just purged an employee who dared to express an opposing viewpoint):
A lot of social justice activists essentially spend all day fighting the culture war, and get nothing done. The company has made it a point to hire more people like this. The diversity gospel has been woven into nearly everything the company does, to the point where senior leaders focus on diversity first and technology second. The companywide “Google Insider” emails used to talk about cool new tech, but now they’re entirely about social justice initiatives. Likewise, the weekly all-hands “TGIF” meetings used to focus on tech, but now they’re split about 50/50 between tech and identity politics signaling.
Wow. Sounds a lot like the Trudeau government to me.

Update: The National Post's "Limericking" feature takes the company's side:

At Google, executives hired
A fellow who, as it transpired,
Wrote long memoranda
With absolute candor
Re: why he deserved to be fired.

My response:

Google worships diversity.
It's a "god" that demands unity.
When a Google minion
Dares to have an opinion
It's a crime! Quelle horreur! Blasphemy!

Update: The Google Archipelago
