Yeyo sends along a tweet storm. It’s interesting both as an amusing example of Projection at its most paranoid and, now that I think about it, a Plan.

As a notorious Bad Guy, it never occurs to me to think up conspiracies this devious. It’s almost as if the self-designated Good Guys have to be relied upon for that. You know, if they weren’t constantly telling us how Good they are, you’d might almost think they have a knack for doing bad.

    Matt Siegel could become his own meme.

    Something like an automated tweet generator based on that program that generated “Deconstruction” paragraphs. Or that Unitarian Church name generator.

    I know, the picture, the fact that he lives in Australia but is commenting on this, (((Siegel))), is in Green party but seemingly only for the mass migration policies and other SJWisms that have nothing to do with the environment or climate change. I also haven't looked into it but from the pose in his picture I am also assuming he is gay.

    The fact that as Steve noted he is 100% projecting the long march through the institutions and the more recent SJW blitzkrieg which became too absurd and allowed for it's own pushback which these people all think is a vast conspiracy.
    , @Olorin
    Matt Siegel is already a meme. The one involving hunched over rubbing of hands and assertions that the goyim are in a vast devious plot against one's power base.

    It's clear that he's projecting the entire thing and probably leaking more about Google's intentions than he intends, i.e., they are the ones with the Devious Plot.

    I never saw the Unitarian name generator--just the old Unitarian joke server.

    The whole thing is hilarious, but my favorite part is the “logical reasoning based on data and statistics” thing.

    Google has seen the data and statistics about women in tech. They don’t like them, so they’re spending a bunch of time and money trying to fight against them. That’s the whole point.

    Is it just my imagination or are we living in a golden age of Freudian projection? People could do endless parodies of such tweet storms: have Admiral Yamamoto lay out in detail how disgusting it is that the US Navy is planning a surprise attack against the Japanese fleet while it’s in harbour, etc, etc.

    I wouldn't say it's Freudian, because that implies it's unconscious and part of some sort of "complex," or whatever. They're just liars and schemers who assume everyone else is, too. They're also used to everyone accepting what they say as is, without scrutiny, so they're not afraid of anyone Noticing the Secret Plot they're exposing is their own.

    What good is to have a Secret Plot, anyway, if it stays secret? That way no one will know how awesome you are.

    An anti-diversity manifesto from a member of Google HQ has been leaked online
    The unnamed engineer suggested that there were ‘biological causes’ for underrepresentation of women in technology and leadership
    It claims women are underrepresented because they are interested in ‘people’
    The 10-page document stoked a heated debate over treatment of women in the male-dominated Silicon Valley
    Two Google executives have since criticized the memo that started circulating late last week at the company
    A Google employee reportedly said the memo had gone ‘internally viral’

    I read the memo.

    It’s not “anti-diversity” at all.

    The (soon to be SJW-swarmed, fired and humiliated) author bends over backwards to state repeatedly that he SUPPORTS more women and minorities in tech. He just disagrees with the methods such as courses at Google restricted by race, etc.

    His main thoughtcrime is stating that there may be biologically-rooted differences between men and women that at least partly explain why women don’t often become back-end engineers. He has the outrageous suggestion that Google change its development processes to take advantage of women’s natural strengths, to encourage more women engineers.

    So of course the MSM and SJWs immediately swarm him and distort his ideas with breathless headlines like “Anti-Diversity Memo.”

    This man is getting an education in the nastiness, deceit and fragility of ideas on the left.

    Summers was a Jewish Democrat, Clinton treasury secretary, World Bank chief economist etc etc, and still had to leave his Harvard post for suggesting the heresy that there might be fundamental differences between men and women which affected their career choices and trajectories.

    If you read Bob Cringeley's Accidental Empires, the early Microsoft (and other company) types were pretty intellectually macho. I don't imagine there was much touchy-feely on display. Pity no one to my knowledge has given us an insight into the early years of Google, I imagine it was the same.

    By now the UK Daily Mail is a US news outlet. They cover what the US mass media refuses too. Of course they are out of the UK. They cover Australia too in a major way.
    UK Daily Mail is in the top three of world news outlets. I have seen it ranked at number one and two. These rankings fluctuate.

    The non-secret of their success is loads of photos. Very photo intensive. Must be viewed on Chrome, it eats up too much Firefox resources.

    Google has ethics and integrity? Well, maybe in their own mind. Anyone with the least capacity for critical thinking will conclude that Google has slipped into disinformation and propaganda some time ago. I avoid Google’s results anymore; they are not to be trusted.

    I read the memo.

    It's not "anti-diversity" at all.

    The (soon to be SJW-swarmed, fired and humiliated) author bends over backwards to state repeatedly that he SUPPORTS more women and minorities in tech. He just disagrees with the methods such as courses at Google restricted by race, etc.

    His main thoughtcrime is stating that there may be biologically-rooted differences between men and women that at least partly explain why women don't often become back-end engineers. He has the outrageous suggestion that Google change its development processes to take advantage of women's natural strengths, to encourage more women engineers.

    So of course the MSM and SJWs immediately swarm him and distort his ideas with breathless headlines like "Anti-Diversity Memo."

    This man is getting an education in the nastiness, deceit and fragility of ideas on the left.

    I wonder if he is aware of what happened to Lawrence Summers, or is he too young?

    http://www.harvard.edu/president/speeches/summers_2005/nber.php

    Summers was a Jewish Democrat, Clinton treasury secretary, World Bank chief economist etc etc, and still had to leave his Harvard post for suggesting the heresy that there might be fundamental differences between men and women which affected their career choices and trajectories.

    If you read Bob Cringeley’s Accidental Empires, the early Microsoft (and other company) types were pretty intellectually macho. I don’t imagine there was much touchy-feely on display. Pity no one to my knowledge has given us an insight into the early years of Google, I imagine it was the same.

    The left simply cannot admit that the genders have ANY different means or distributions of characteristics between them.

    The reason?

    As soon as they let this inconvenient fact see daylight their entire equalist ediface comes crashing down. Along with tens of thousands of cushy sinecures like "VP Diversity & Integrity."

    The whole thing is Orwellian. 2+2=5 if the Party says so.

    Yep, a golden age of projection. Currently I am reading that the 'Russians' are trying to get National Security Advisor McMaster fired because he just purged three Zionists. Looks more like the Neocons frothing about their purging, not sure what the Russians have to do with it.

    Sorry, but the people McMaster keeps firing get painted as “neocons” while he wants to dump another gorillion dollars into Afghanistan and stands by keeping Obama loyalists. He allowed Susan Rice to keep her TS clearance FFS!

    Media Matters, Kristol, and all the others are defending McMaster, while Kelly wants to strip him of hiring and firing authority.

    HR ain’t no saint.

    The Daily Mail is the gift that keeps on giving.

    (Admittedly an old trope, but nevertheless true, true, true.)

    By now the UK Daily Mail is a US news outlet. They cover what the US mass media refuses too. Of course they are out of the UK. They cover Australia too in a major way.
    UK Daily Mail is in the top three of world news outlets. I have seen it ranked at number one and two. These rankings fluctuate.

    The non-secret of their success is loads of photos. Very photo intensive. Must be viewed on Chrome, it eats up too much Firefox resources.

    It appears that the Daily Mail also has a NYC satellite office as they once posted photos of an approaching thunderstorm from it.

  51. I find it impossible to defend Matt Siegel against the charge that what he did and said during the period under examination amounts to JEWISH SUPREMACISM, whatever it was that drove him to say and do it: most probably, an iconoclastic temperament.

    This google dust up keeps on getting better and better.
    UK Daily Mail's headlines read:


    Google's 'Left-wing bias has alienated its own workers': Senior engineer claims colleagues with right-wing views are forced to keep them 'in the closet'

    An anti-diversity manifesto from a member of Google HQ has been leaked online
    The unnamed engineer suggested that there were 'biological causes' for underrepresentation of women in technology and leadership
    It claims women are underrepresented because they are interested in 'people'
    The 10-page document stoked a heated debate over treatment of women in the male-dominated Silicon Valley
    Two Google executives have since criticized the memo that started circulating late last week at the company
    A Google employee reportedly said the memo had gone 'internally viral'

  58. Democracy’s weakness is apparently not only free speech, but also Democracy – at least when it ends in the election of someone they don’t like using the powers of the office to affect policies that he campaigned to deliver but which violate several of the tacit Constitutional Amendments (i.e. Zeroth).

    This thing where weakling nerds accrue real world power and influence is not going well – they’ve never learned how to use either judiciously or fairly. It’s all about wedgie revenge for them.

    The front page of the USA and UK editions is where you find the political coverage and lots of it is solid and coming from the right. They do not cater to the loony lib perspective, here or in UK. They even have science and travel sections. Other sections too like the NY Times. Ignore the area catering to female gossip and celebrities goings on. I will admit they do cater to the women #1 because this is where UK Daily Mail rakes in the most advertising revenue.

    Matt Siegel could become his own meme.

    Something like an automated tweet generator based on that program that generated "Deconstruction" paragraphs. Or that Unitarian Church name generator.

    Matt Siegel is already a meme. The one involving hunched over rubbing of hands and assertions that the goyim are in a vast devious plot against one’s power base.

    It’s clear that he’s projecting the entire thing and probably leaking more about Google’s intentions than he intends, i.e., they are the ones with the Devious Plot.

    I never saw the Unitarian name generator–just the old Unitarian joke server.
