    I don't think they even consider it a storm, other than that they had Damore working there in the first place. They would gladly purge others who hold similar views regardless of any lip service the CEO pays to "employees being able to express minority viewpoints." This doesn't include any views on the ever changing list of things banned as hate speech.

    You can't really blame Google. I mean, what could be more American? Trample customer privacy rights while funneling profits offshore to avoid paying taxes, all the while virtue signaling and pandering to mass media. Ironic really, that they never considered the possibility of an engineer writing a cogent, pointed memo highlighting social problems at the company.

  2. Steve Pinker, you are our only hope! Please write a scathingly hostile op-ed about the femi-nazi’s harassing and firing your Harvard student alum (in a related department) for speaking the truth in a fair and honest way.

    We need someone prestigious and still considered “mainstream,” but with a shred of honesty, to tell it like it is. Steve Sailer will not do for this.

    Has everyone at Harvard lost all self respect, allowing their alum to be humiliated for open honesty about what they learned there, in the psychology-related departments?

    I think Harvard will be proclaiming loudly that this goy definitely didn't learn badthink from them.

    Harvard is the leader in humiliating people for "open honesty". Harvard exists to perpetuate the ruling class. Period.

    Harvard is not a magical place where the best and brightest autistes ponder Life's Big Questions and discover the truth as you understand truth. Harvard is a tax exempt hedge fund that also has a side business in telling little people what the Truth is.

    No, the real discussion must happen in the Open Forum.

    Elite Institutions and Big Industries are too closed. They have too much to lose by rocking the boat.

    All true revolutions in social thought happens from the outside.

    This is why deplatforming by Youtube and others is so crucial.

    An institution can fire a professor but he can still reach people, indeed many more,via the internet.

    But if you take down his blogs or youtube videos or if you take away his twitter acct or ban him from facebook, that's a different story.

    Gag-gle and such companies talk of 'inclusion' and openness, but they maintain the code of Omerta and demand that minds and mouths be closed to anything but the google dogma or Googma.

    We would had to rely on someone like Pinker in pre-internet world. No longer.

    Colleges used to be essential for access to knowledge and opportunity for discourse.

    Now, knowledge is accessible to all via the net, and discourse is dime-a-dozen.

    Colleges now exist ONLY for careerism(except in hard sciences and technology where you still need access to expensive equipment for research). Everything else can be learned in online world.

    What did Pinker do when his coethnic Lawrence Summers was forced out from Harvard for very similar crimethink? To be fair to him, he did speak out, but he was outvoted by faculty.

    Influential psychologist Steven Pinker defended the legitimacy of Summers's January lecture. When asked if Summers's talk was "within the pale of legitimate academic discourse," Pinker responded "Good grief, shouldn't everything be within the pale of legitimate academic discourse, as long as it is presented with some degree of rigor? That's the difference between a university and a madrassa. There is certainly enough evidence for the hypothesis to be taken seriously."
     
    However the faculty may have had other motives for disliking Summers.

    There was a certain moment when a machine became the best chess player in the world - better than any human and better than any other machine. Many people had predicted that that day would never come. But they were wrong.

    Many people refused to accept this as a milestone. They pointed out that ability at chess is no where as difficult as general intelligence which copes with problems of an incredible variety.

    But there has now emerged a true general intelligence that can cope with virtually any problem, answer any question, and which knows virtually everything there is to know. This phenomenon is found in the comment section of the iSteve blog.

    I can stump the smartest expert on any topic by simply asking him a question that is not in his area. But almost any question on any topic can be answered by the iSteve blog. This is a slight exaggeration but if you add a handful of more specialized blogs it comes very close to the machine imagined by Douglas Adams that could answer any question.

    Any question on any topic seems to get the correct answer in the Comments section. So we have a system that can give the right answer to any conceivable question. But alas the right answer is usually embedded in a matrix with large number of wrong answers.

    When Obama first got elected, I thought he would go full bolshevik shutting down free speech, grabbing guns, central planning, etc. Then when he failed to do those things in the first year I thought maybe we’d be okay.

    But the eight years of Obama were pretty Bolshevist, after all. I cannot imagine this manifesto even going viral ten years ago. It is just common sense, common knowledge. How did we go from a mostly free country under George W. to a authoritarian state eight years later. Yes, Trump is a backlash to that. But on college campuses, in media, in the workplace, people are still very afraid of all the little tyrants running these institutions. How did Obama affect this much change on the micro level, and how can Trump and his supporters undo it?

    The supreme court just re-affirmed that so-called hate speech is in fact free speech, but no one besides hate speakers themselves seemed to care?

    One way I suppose is lawsuits. You can still get a jury of sympathetic people. So in these restrictive environments we should sue for hostile work environment or title IX violation as the case may be. Also Sessions should go after Soros for racketeering.

    All that could go our way, and it still might not be enough. All these thousands of unappointed little kommissars are deranged.

Alt-Right leaders can gain distance from the Paul Ryan/ Jeff Flake Globalizer faction of the GOP by taking on a powerful corporation that is attacking Whites. The Hillary Clinton Democrats are on the side of powerful corporations, that will not change.

    GOOGLE can be brought down very easily. Americans will eventually fight back against monopolies that threaten national security and corner the market for a resource or services. GOOGLE is a monopoly and it must be hit with anti-trust actions from the United Sates Justice Department.

    Jeff Flake and Paul Ryan are two rancid GOP politician whores who push open borders mass immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders. GOOGLE pushes the same nation-wrecking immigration policy. Neither Flake nor Ryan will say one word against GOOGLE. Flake and Ryan are bought and paid for whores who do the bidding of corporate media.

GOOGLE has even targeted some of the young babes who are making a name for themselves by giving Buchananite opinions a dainty, pretty gloss. Lauren Southern and some of the other gals are using their natural beauty to attract audiences for their political and cultural videos. GOOGLE is de-monetizing their videos and doing other things to hinder their ability to gain a wider audience for their videos.

    GOOGLE must be destroyed and YOUTUBE must be destroyed also. The Alt-Right should make it clear they they will do what is necessary to decrease the power of corporations that are anti-White. A little business aggressiveness towards developing Alt-Right business interests would also raise some much needed cash for the Alt-Right cause.

    The donor-controlled GOP as represented by the likes of Koch boy Paul Ryan or chinless wonder Mitch McConnell will never confront any corporation that actively engages in anti-White activities. The Alt-Right is now one of the only forces in American political life that will challenge the corporate control of media in the United States. The Hillary Clinton Democrats or the Paul Ryan/Jeff Flake Republicans will never fight GOOGLE.

    Just because Populism has a White face on certain matters doesn’t mean that the Populists are wrong to confront corporate control of the media in the United States. All the energy and power in politics is backing the Alt-Right in their fight to challenge the anti-White actions of the corporate media in the United States.

A red-haired chick in a miniskirt was put next to a black male. A Jewish woman was in the center (with an Arab, if I recall). If I recall, the black guy had an improbably scientific T-shirt.

    It’s all a theme. Some European rail service aired a commericial with a young white male in a wheelchair and a nonwhite male chatting up an attractive white woman.

    I think the doodle was created by a very young and (to be frank) lesbian-looking, Irish woman. That she was seemingly born in and living in what is still a predominately white country only serves to underscore how diversity is an ideology, rather than a call to tolerance.

    Diverse groups tend to be composed so that white girls are paired with young non-white (preferably black) men.

    White men in such groups will be placed next non-whites and/or old/disabled. Or even so there are subtle physical barriers between them and any white women present.

    Here's a classic I found at random just now (not using Google):

    https://ixquick-proxy.com/do/spg/show_picture.pl?l=english&rais=1&oiu=http%3A%2F%2Ffscomps.fotosearch.com%2Fcompc%2FUNY%2FUNY546%2Fu27531670.jpg&sp=5403baa61b799afcee83075885ceaa16

    The white women all appear in some proximity to Mr. Black while Mr. White is *literally* separated from them by the cubicle, cock blocked! In fact he's being ignored as well. The balloons separate him visually from the only white girl on his side of the cubicle with only Ms. Mystery Meat for company (she may even be white but it's still notable that he's paired with one who has a question mark over her). Furthermore the only meaningful eye contact is between the girl in the seat and Mr. Black. Also while everyone is wearing silly hats only Mr. White is blowing on that party horn thing which serves to infantilise and humiliate him.

    (Gotta say, sweater girl on the left - phwoar!)

    This stuff is going on constantly though of course it's not 100% of the time.

    When Obama first got elected, I thought he would go full bolshevik shutting down free speech, grabbing guns, central planning, etc. Then when he failed to do those things in the first year I thought maybe we'd be okay.

    But the eight years of Obama were pretty Bolshevist, after all. I cannot imagine this manifesto even going viral ten years ago. It is just common sense, common knowledge. How did we go from a mostly free country under George W. to a authoritarian state eight years later. Yes, Trump is a backlash to that. But on college campuses, in media, in the workplace, people are still very afraid of all the little tyrants running these institutions. How did Obama affect this much change on the micro level, and how can Trump and his supporters undo it?

    The supreme court just re-affirmed that so-called hate speech is in fact free speech, but no one besides hate speakers themselves seemed to care?

    One way I suppose is lawsuits. You can still get a jury of sympathetic people. So in these restrictive environments we should sue for hostile work environment or title IX violation as the case may be. Also Sessions should go after Soros for racketeering.

    I read the other day that AG Sessions was planning to use the civil rights division to prosecute anti-White discrimination. That’s a start. Trump could (as he threatened to do) pull federal funding from universities. GOP state houses and governors can simply shutter the departments in the state schools where these enemies hide out. Let them complain on Twitter. Trump is bashing the fake news media daily, this is also good.

    Longer term, improving the economic condition of White men is the only solution to the problem. Men are afraid to lose their jobs because they are in debt to their eyeballs and don’t want their kids to have to live with the black and brown underclass.

    Stop immigration, deport them all, do universal healthcare and basic income combined with significantly deregulated industry. Nobody will be afraid to tell these creatures to fuck off if they can just find another good job the next day, or live comfortably without one.

    Every day, I'm beginning to realize that it is inevitable that the poles will shift, and the Right in the US is going to be the side that advocates for single-payer and UBI, while the Left digs in on employer-based healthcare for most.

    Why? Because employer-based healthcare (and the crappiness of Obamacare options) is the political speech equivalent of tax withholding: starting in WW2, the US government contracted out enforcement of tax collection to employers by making them do the withholding on everybody's paycheck. Oh, it started as a temporary emergency war measure, just like rent control in NYC, but they're both still with us 70 years after V-J Day. The Google case is now a redpill for everyone on something that has been going on for some years: that Uncle Sam has farmed out enforcement of punishment of the expression of crimethink to the same large, corporate employers.

    What did Pinker do when his coethnic Lawrence Summers was forced out from Harvard for very similar crimethink? To be fair to him, he did speak out, but he was outvoted by faculty.

    Influential psychologist Steven Pinker defended the legitimacy of Summers’s January lecture. When asked if Summers’s talk was “within the pale of legitimate academic discourse,” Pinker responded “Good grief, shouldn’t everything be within the pale of legitimate academic discourse, as long as it is presented with some degree of rigor? That’s the difference between a university and a madrassa. There is certainly enough evidence for the hypothesis to be taken seriously.

    However the faculty may have had other motives for disliking Summers.

    Even if what you say is true about this site being an exho chamber (I don't agree) there is a huge difference between us and liberals, namely that we live in a world where almost every newspaper, film, political party, comedy series, radio and television programme, Oscars speech etc, adheres to the liberal worldview. So we are all well versed in what they think and how they feel about events. If this site offers a respite from that, so much the better. I don't need to hear what they say in this forum to know what they think. I get that from everywher else.

    Liberals on the other hand know very little about anyone who thinks differently from them, which is why google employees and college students clearly cannnot cope when they encounter such views and require safe spaces and sackings. It also explains why news articles and editorials about the alt right or conservative reaction are usually way off base.

    The Right loses these fights because they do not understand how to fight, with one exception: The NRA. The NRA on the Right fights like the Left. They challenge anything and everything. They fund raise with mass outreach and support only those who support them 100%. If they need to sue, they sue, and often. Sue over guns in a school zone? Sure, why not? The ACLU sues the Boy Scouts. The NRA does not give an inch. They give nothing. SNL and the NYTimes make fun of them, think they are beyond the pale? They don't care, they hit back even harder. And the result? Guns are still legal. The Left has won every cultural battle, except guns. Let it be a lesson.

    Pro-life is arguably the other successful example.

    The key to both of them are that they are extremely single-issue groups. They are, in a way, inclusive: they will welcome even Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner even if such people are disgusting, because the only thing that matters to the NRA are gun rights; to allow minorities to join is not even a second thought. They will use arguments that Jim Crow laws denied blacks guns if they have to. They will argue that guns keep gays safe if they have to. They will take money from rednecks to fund pencilnecked geeks to bear arms if they have to.

    They use any method, high or low, to justify guns.

    In doing so, it is able to pull on significant support and avoid splintering by focusing on the only one matter.

    Few other groups on the Right can do that. You see that even here on Unz, where elements of the right spend more time fighting each other and claiming any compromise on immigration or even not deporting Jews is a tragedy.

    These people have no tactical acumen whatsoever. They can't even understand the basic idea of stab your useful idiots later. And this is why the fate of the larger Right looks very sad.

    When Obama first got elected, I thought he would go full bolshevik shutting down free speech, grabbing guns, central planning, etc. Then when he failed to do those things in the first year I thought maybe we'd be okay.

    But the eight years of Obama were pretty Bolshevist, after all. I cannot imagine this manifesto even going viral ten years ago. It is just common sense, common knowledge. How did we go from a mostly free country under George W. to a authoritarian state eight years later. Yes, Trump is a backlash to that. But on college campuses, in media, in the workplace, people are still very afraid of all the little tyrants running these institutions. How did Obama affect this much change on the micro level, and how can Trump and his supporters undo it?

    The supreme court just re-affirmed that so-called hate speech is in fact free speech, but no one besides hate speakers themselves seemed to care?

    One way I suppose is lawsuits. You can still get a jury of sympathetic people. So in these restrictive environments we should sue for hostile work environment or title IX violation as the case may be. Also Sessions should go after Soros for racketeering.

    All that could go our way, and it still might not be enough. All these thousands of unappointed little kommissars are deranged.

    Obama’s main accomplishment was Obamacare, which works by having the feds cut gargantuan checks to private insurance companies. This is not a bolshevik policy. A proper bolshevik policy about the private health insurance racket would be to round those execs up and send them to the gulag.

    It's interesting that no one from Google chose to respond to Mr. Damore's memo by simply saying that his assertions about women in tech were not true.

    To hide behind "advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace" when it would have been so easy to say Mr. Damore lied makes one think that Google believes his claims, while hurtful, are true.

    Google is a workplace that is famous for emphasizing data in decision-making, working hard to avoid making decisions based on opinions. Given that, they could also have said that Mr. Damore was fired because he showed his decision-making was based not on data but on obvious inaccuracies and stereotypes. Again, when they avoid taking this route, it makes one wonder whether they think his claims are true, but can't abide his making them public due to the legal and morale problems they bring along.

  71. People have criticized Damore’s memo for various things, but I have to say that I was overall quite impressed with it.

    The memo is almost tone perfect in its diplomatic language, and introduces all the necessary qualifications on its claims. While the prose is a bit clunky at times, the document presents virtually nothing that can be quoted that isn’t defensible scientifically, morally, and diplomatically. There is simply no other way to communicate these ideas in more objective, less inflammatory language. To say that the document crossed the line is simply to say that these ideas — scientifically supported ideas — can’t be uttered without the most severe possible punishment.

    I'm starting to think he might have played them. If you look into his background, he seems extremely smart. (He is a chess master, among other things.) Within a day of his firing he was announcing the specific legal strategy that he aimed to use in suing them. The document itself is extremely mellow, to the chagrin of some people in various comment sections, but it looks like he was very careful to say things that are perfectly defensible. He can have expert witnesses testify to the object truth of the factual assertions he makes. He is very careful not to make broad generalizations, and emphasizes the value of individual difference. The strategy of suing on the grounds that Google is retaliating for his raising questions about workplace issues seems very promising. That is exactly what the overt text of the document was doing, and so far as I understand, there is well-established legal doctrine on this issue.

    It seems that Google might not have thought this through very clearly. I suspect they will probably aim to settle, but will try to demand that he cease discussion. But it seems he has little reason to do that (unless he can extract an enormous amount of money, and be set for life). Why not take it to the courts, and get the blacklists released? Pretty soon the Google lawyers are going to be sending out notices to everyone about preservation of evidence. This is going a wild ride...

The better people still alive now are those older than the Boomers but they're starting to fade out on us.

    Steve Pinker, you are our only hope! Please write a scathingly hostile op-ed about the femi-nazi's harassing and firing your Harvard student alum (in a related department) for speaking the truth in a fair and honest way.

    We need someone prestigious and still considered "mainstream," but with a shred of honesty, to tell it like it is. Steve Sailer will not do for this.

    Has everyone at Harvard lost all self respect, allowing their alum to be humiliated for open honesty about what they learned there, in the psychology-related departments?

    Pinker is just one more participant in the sect corruption at Harvard. Remember that pinker defended the thievery by Larry Summers for which Harvard had to pay a multi-million fine (The Harvard mathematician MathBabe has an informative article listed below).

As an international think-tank located within one of America’s most “prestigious” universities, it turns out to be nothing more than a den of deception and intellectual dishonesty, as we’ll see as we peel back the cheap veneer of legitimacy. Named after Robert Belfer of the Belco Petroleum Corporation and later, director of the failed Enron Corporation, the Belfer Center describes itself as being “the hub of the Harvard Kennedy School’s research, teaching, and training in international security affairs, environmental and resource issues, and science and technology policy.” Robert Belfer still sits in as an International Council Member, begging one to wonder what sort of “research” is going on within the halls of a center named after a man synonymous with big oil and big fraud…..

Actually, the truth is something worse, and for which he should actually be in jail. It’s also something that makes Harvard look bad, so maybe that’s why it’s less known. The subtitle of this post is: Why Larry Summers shouldn’t be made head of the World Bank.

    GOOGLE is trying to destroy the United States. The baby boomers as a generation seem highly enamored of transnational corporations. President Trump is a baby boomer.

    To hide behind “advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace” when it would have been so easy to say Mr. Damore lied makes one think that Google believes his claims, while hurtful, are true.

    Google is a workplace that is famous for emphasizing data in decision-making, working hard to avoid making decisions based on opinions. Given that, they could also have said that Mr. Damore was fired because he showed his decision-making was based not on data but on obvious inaccuracies and stereotypes. Again, when they avoid taking this route, it makes one wonder whether they think his claims are true, but can’t abide his making them public due to the legal and morale problems they bring along.

So we are all well versed in what they think and how they feel about events. If this site offers a respite from that, so much the better. I don’t need to hear what they say in this forum to know what they think. I get that from everywher else.

    Liberals on the other hand know very little about anyone who thinks differently from them, which is why google employees and college students clearly cannnot cope when they encounter such views and require safe spaces and sackings.

    Dislodging SJWers from tech is going to be difficult. Tech pays better than a waitressing job, and all the women know it. Plus it allows women to bag decently-earning beta males who are too socially inept and isolated to score with normal women, meaning it’s a good industry for husband-hunters to populate.

    One reason tech titans are trying to increase women in their sector is because it’s a bribe to keep these male employees from leaving the company for work elsewhere. Tech is fiercely competitive. The best employees would be head-hunted by other tech companies unless they’re anchored in place by something, and a wife, kids, house, and inertia can do a lot to achieve this. So the tech CEOs have chosen to become match-making yentas. Two spouses with jobs find it tougher to relocate to another state than one. There’s also a well-known phenomenon that makes men work harder if they have a wife and kids and a mortgage. Bosses LOVE that, and tech companies thrive on putting their employees in a pressure cooker.

    I vaguely recall a WSJ op-ed tongue-in-cheek article about such a phenomena (It was in the 80s/90s) which (I think) attributed it to nagging. The more the wife nagged, the more time the husband would spend at work thereby increasing productivity.

    It looks like it originated in 1990: http://www.lairdwilcox.com/news/defame.html

    Usually, one editor there reviews submissions, and then your submission either gets published, rejected, or bounced back with feedback for revisions. For this one, three editors looked it over, and their feedback was:

    – Why didn’t I use the article to promote my Portfolio Armor hedging app (literally the first time they’ve ever given me an issue for not promoting it)?

    – They didn’t like the Lysenko reference.

    – They preferred something “more measured”.

    Baby boomers love transnational corporations. Baby boomers prefer to harp on about the government, even though the government is stealing money right and left to pay for the retirement of the baby boomers.

    British history is full of corporations acting in concert with the government to achieve certain political and financial goals. But the East India Company and other transnational corporations throughout British history weren't actively engaged in activities designed to destroy their host nation.

    GOOGLE is trying to destroy the United States. The baby boomers as a generation seem highly enamored of transnational corporations. President Trump is a baby boomer. Perhaps President Trump could mention that sometimes, especially in the case of GOOGLE, transnational corporations get out of control of sovereign authorities to the detriment of the nation as a whole.

    I used to think the Boomers with power were the worst but I’ve come to see things differently. The Boomers in authority are bad but their younger apprentices are worse. Power Boomers picked up enough from their elders to at least have a vestigial sense of civic-mindedness and fair play; those younger than them lack even that. The better people still alive now are those older than the Boomers but they’re starting to fade out on us. We’re going to be stuck with sub-optimal elders and authority figures for a long time to come.

    … From A.D. 150 on, this impression of a shrinking of vitality, of a falling from position, of decay and loss of pulse shows itself increasingly in the Roman Empire. Had not Horace already sung: “Our fathers, viler than our grandfathers, begot us who are even viler, and we shall bring forth a progeny more degenerate still”?

    People have criticized Damore's memo for various things, but I have to say that I was overall quite impressed with it.

    The memo is almost tone perfect in its diplomatic language, and introduces all the necessary qualifications on its claims. While the prose is a bit clunky at times, the document presents virtually nothing that can be quoted that isn't defensible scientifically, morally, and diplomatically. There is simply no other way to communicate these ideas in more objective, less inflammatory language. To say that the document crossed the line is simply to say that these ideas -- scientifically supported ideas -- can't be uttered without the most severe possible punishment.

    This puts Damore in a very strong position to go at Google both legally and politically.

    I’m starting to think he might have played them. If you look into his background, he seems extremely smart. (He is a chess master, among other things.) Within a day of his firing he was announcing the specific legal strategy that he aimed to use in suing them. The document itself is extremely mellow, to the chagrin of some people in various comment sections, but it looks like he was very careful to say things that are perfectly defensible. He can have expert witnesses testify to the object truth of the factual assertions he makes. He is very careful not to make broad generalizations, and emphasizes the value of individual difference. The strategy of suing on the grounds that Google is retaliating for his raising questions about workplace issues seems very promising. That is exactly what the overt text of the document was doing, and so far as I understand, there is well-established legal doctrine on this issue.

    It seems that Google might not have thought this through very clearly. I suspect they will probably aim to settle, but will try to demand that he cease discussion. But it seems he has little reason to do that (unless he can extract an enormous amount of money, and be set for life). Why not take it to the courts, and get the blacklists released? Pretty soon the Google lawyers are going to be sending out notices to everyone about preservation of evidence. This is going a wild ride…

    There was one about two or three months ago that redpilled me to Google.

    It contained a diverse crowd. The white males were bookends. One was in a wheelchair, another holding a cane, the third obviously gay. A red-haired chick in a miniskirt was put next to a black male. A Jewish woman was in the center (with an Arab, if I recall). If I recall, the black guy had an improbably scientific T-shirt.

    It's all a theme. Some European rail service aired a commericial with a young white male in a wheelchair and a nonwhite male chatting up an attractive white woman.

    I think the doodle was created by a very young and (to be frank) lesbian-looking, Irish woman. That she was seemingly born in and living in what is still a predominately white country only serves to underscore how diversity is an ideology, rather than a call to tolerance.

    Those are Agenda™ rules of thumb.

    Diverse groups tend to be composed so that white girls are paired with young non-white (preferably black) men.

    White men in such groups will be placed next non-whites and/or old/disabled. Or even so there are subtle physical barriers between them and any white women present.

    Here’s a classic I found at random just now (not using Google):

    https://ixquick-proxy.com/do/spg/show_picture.pl?l=english&rais=1&oiu=http%3A%2F%2Ffscomps.fotosearch.com%2Fcompc%2FUNY%2FUNY546%2Fu27531670.jpg&sp=5403baa61b799afcee83075885ceaa16

    The white women all appear in some proximity to Mr. Black while Mr. White is *literally* separated from them by the cubicle, cock blocked! In fact he’s being ignored as well. The balloons separate him visually from the only white girl on his side of the cubicle with only Ms. Mystery Meat for company (she may even be white but it’s still notable that he’s paired with one who has a question mark over her). Furthermore the only meaningful eye contact is between the girl in the seat and Mr. Black. Also while everyone is wearing silly hats only Mr. White is blowing on that party horn thing which serves to infantilise and humiliate him.

    (Gotta say, sweater girl on the left – phwoar!)

    This stuff is going on constantly though of course it’s not 100% of the time.

    Dislodging SJWers from tech is going to be difficult. Tech pays better than a waitressing job, and all the women know it. Plus it allows women to bag decently-earning beta males who are too socially inept and isolated to score with normal women, meaning it's a good industry for husband-hunters to populate.

    One reason tech titans are trying to increase women in their sector is because it's a bribe to keep these male employees from leaving the company for work elsewhere. Tech is fiercely competitive. The best employees would be head-hunted by other tech companies unless they're anchored in place by something, and a wife, kids, house, and inertia can do a lot to achieve this. So the tech CEOs have chosen to become match-making yentas. Two spouses with jobs find it tougher to relocate to another state than one. There's also a well-known phenomenon that makes men work harder if they have a wife and kids and a mortgage. Bosses LOVE that, and tech companies thrive on putting their employees in a pressure cooker.

    "People smoke it when they wake up to prepare for the day,"

    That seems to be a difference between alcohol and marijuana culture: daylight drinking is considered only for special occasions like tailgate parties, and morning drinking is severely looked down upon. In contrast, coming to your 8 am class already baked is considered cool.

    The Colorado motels I stayed at in July made me sign forms that I wasn't going to smoke _anything_ in their rooms and my credit card would be penalized if the maids noticed I had.

    Back in the 90s I had neighbors, a childless married couple in their 40s, who were high all the time. My ex-wife used to catch the train to work in the morning, and she would occasionally be headed to the station just behind said couple, who would be puffing away on a joint to help them face the day.

    They both had jobs working for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

    I think they should note the d of 0.4 for math differences in high ability populations (we are talking Google engineers here!). 0.4 does not the 0.8 (or 0.66) threshold chosen, but it is large enough to matter IMHO. On an IQ scale that would be equivalent to a 6 IQ point (0.4 *15) difference in means.

    Even if what you say is true about this site being an exho chamber (I don't agree) there is a huge difference between us and liberals, namely that we live in a world where almost every newspaper, film, political party, comedy series, radio and television programme, Oscars speech etc, adheres to the liberal worldview. So we are all well versed in what they think and how they feel about events. If this site offers a respite from that, so much the better. I don't need to hear what they say in this forum to know what they think. I get that from everywher else.

    Liberals on the other hand know very little about anyone who thinks differently from them, which is why google employees and college students clearly cannnot cope when they encounter such views and require safe spaces and sackings. It also explains why news articles and editorials about the alt right or conservative reaction are usually way off base.

    I don’t want shitlibs in here any more than you do. But Trump is incredibly flawed and stupid, and you hardly need to be a leftist to see that. It stands to reason that anyone who never criticizes him is dumb and/or dishonest.

    Not true. It's called specialization and comparative advantage.

It doesn't follow that he has any particular view on that subject. Rather, we have no idea what his views are on climate change.

    The comparative advantage of this blog is discussion of the obvious, clear problems that can't be discussed in the main stream because of sacred taboos and ritual defamation, so that's what the focus is.

    GOOGLE is using its power to stop information and political opinions from being broadcast on its YOUTUBE internet site. GOOGLE has even targeted some of the young babes who are making a name for themselves by giving Buchananite opinions a dainty, pretty gloss. Lauren Southern and some of the other gals are using their natural beauty to attract audiences for their political and cultural videos. GOOGLE is de-monetizing their videos and doing other things to hinder their ability to gain a wider audience for their videos.

    GOOGLE must be destroyed and YOUTUBE must be destroyed also. The Alt-Right should make it clear they they will do what is necessary to decrease the power of corporations that are anti-White. A little business aggressiveness towards developing Alt-Right business interests would also raise some much needed cash for the Alt-Right cause.

    The donor-controlled GOP as represented by the likes of Koch boy Paul Ryan or chinless wonder Mitch McConnell will never confront any corporation that actively engages in anti-White activities. The Alt-Right is now one of the only forces in American political life that will challenge the corporate control of media in the United States. The Hillary Clinton Democrats or the Paul Ryan/Jeff Flake Republicans will never fight GOOGLE.

    Just because Populism has a White face on certain matters doesn’t mean that the Populists are wrong to confront corporate control of the media in the United States. All the energy and power in politics is backing the Alt-Right in their fight to challenge the anti-White actions of the corporate media in the United States.

    President Trump said “The FAKE NEWS media (failing NY Times, NBC News, ABC, CBS, CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people!

    President Trump should immediately start antitrust actions against the anti-White scoundrels who control GOOGLE.

    It is much much more important to develop parallel institutions that are controlled by the right than destroy anything the left has built or more probably, taken over. The main thing this time is to prevent these new institutions from being corrupted, perverted, or taken over.

    In circumstances like the affairs Damore, there should be 1,000,000 alt-right activists willing to donate $10 per week to come up with resources to immediately bail out such a person. I would love to see this guy get $10 million. It would take whatever punishment that was meted out and turn it into a reward. You want to attack iSteve? $10 mil. (Hell, he should get it anyway).

    White men in such groups will be placed next non-whites and/or old/disabled. Or even so there are subtle physical barriers between them and any white women present.

    The white women all appear in some proximity to Mr. Black while Mr. White is *literally* separated from them by the cubicle, cock blocked! In fact he's being ignored as well. The balloons separate him visually from the only white girl on his side of the cubicle with only Ms. Mystery Meat for company (she may even be white but it's still notable that he's paired with one who has a question mark over her). Furthermore the only meaningful eye contact is between the girl in the seat and Mr. Black. Also while everyone is wearing silly hats only Mr. White is blowing on that party horn thing which serves to infantilise and humiliate him.

    (Gotta say, sweater girl on the left - phwoar!)

    This stuff is going on constantly though of course it's not 100% of the time.

    The bringer of cake: the provider. At least if you don’t go Freudian. Someone should really collate all these. The tricky part is so many are videos and go on for a few seconds, without a single frame telling the whole story.

    I’ve been pretty shocked by the recent ads on TV. The message is so strong and so sudden, it is almost like a putsch. The big theme is not even interracial dating but miscegenation. In a single break, you might even get three different ads with that theme, easily the majority.

    Pregnancy tests. Every sort of product. There’s a phone one that I find really galling. It is filled with mostly white babyboomers, like about ten , maybe with two black friends. The only grandchild, at the very end, is a mulatto who seems to obviously have a white (blonde, if I recall) mother.

    My preference for guys not to be too nice has nothing to do with my mating habits. Our society is far too morally lax and culturally decadent. Niceness is perceived by too many as encouragement to behave badly. We already have enough of that crap.

    People have criticized Damore's memo for various things, but I have to say that I was overall quite impressed with it.

    The memo is almost tone perfect in its diplomatic language, and introduces all the necessary qualifications on its claims. While the prose is a bit clunky at times, the document presents virtually nothing that can be quoted that isn't defensible scientifically, morally, and diplomatically. There is simply no other way to communicate these ideas in more objective, less inflammatory language. To say that the document crossed the line is simply to say that these ideas -- scientifically supported ideas -- can't be uttered without the most severe possible punishment.

    This puts Damore in a very strong position to go at Google both legally and politically.

    As for climate change, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about or discussing it either due to the topic's extreme complexity and exhausting hyperpoliticization, but I imagine Sailer has at least a few original or at least rare and insightful opinions about the general topic of climate change.

    And Sailer's treatment of climate change is not comparable to his treatment of Trump. If he never said anything about Trump that would be one thing.

    Financial and merit aid can be pretty lucrative these days at the HYPS top of the heap. For families below about $150k, it's much more expensive to go to lower tier private colleges than to the Big Four. So of course it makes financial sense to go to HYPS over the alternatives unless you have a specialty they don't serve, such as, perhaps Petroleum Engineering.

    I read the other day that AG Sessions was planning to use the civil rights division to prosecute anti-White discrimination. That's a start. Trump could (as he threatened to do) pull federal funding from universities. GOP state houses and governors can simply shutter the departments in the state schools where these enemies hide out. Let them complain on Twitter. Trump is bashing the fake news media daily, this is also good.

    Longer term, improving the economic condition of White men is the only solution to the problem. Men are afraid to lose their jobs because they are in debt to their eyeballs and don't want their kids to have to live with the black and brown underclass.

    Stop immigration, deport them all, do universal healthcare and basic income combined with significantly deregulated industry. Nobody will be afraid to tell these creatures to fuck off if they can just find another good job the next day, or live comfortably without one.

    Every day, I’m beginning to realize that it is inevitable that the poles will shift, and the Right in the US is going to be the side that advocates for single-payer and UBI, while the Left digs in on employer-based healthcare for most.

    Why? Because employer-based healthcare (and the crappiness of Obamacare options) is the political speech equivalent of tax withholding: starting in WW2, the US government contracted out enforcement of tax collection to employers by making them do the withholding on everybody’s paycheck. Oh, it started as a temporary emergency war measure, just like rent control in NYC, but they’re both still with us 70 years after V-J Day. The Google case is now a redpill for everyone on something that has been going on for some years: that Uncle Sam has farmed out enforcement of punishment of the expression of crimethink to the same large, corporate employers.

    In addition to the PC-maniacal admin staff, Harvard has lots and lots and lots of great academic minds doing careful and thoughtful research. Many of the academic staff can add two plus two and get four; they are not stupid, even if many are stupefied by the Mainstream Narrative blasted into their eardrums. When I said "Harvard" I meant individual researchers affiliated with Harvard, as students, faculty, post-docs, etc. Not the admin staff.

    You mean like how Jacob Neusner wrote that Goldhagen’s Hitler’s Willing Executioners “calls into question the scholarly integrity of Harvard’s doctorate”?

    Jim Don Bob, just seriously consider Steve's notion of citizenism for a moment if you want valid grounds on which to criticize his thinking.

    Otherwise, please don't change a thing about your comments. I really enjoy them.

    Kylie, I was being sarcastic about being more critical of Steve; guess I should have added the /sarc tag.

    I am fully on board with most of what Steve says, especially his concept of citizenism – that a country should be run for the benefit of its citizens first and foremost. I remember that country and would like to live in it again.

    Thanks for the kind words. It’s good to have your distaff voice (I’ve always wanted to use that word) in the midst of so much testosterone.

    I like the notion of "citizens first", too. My problem lies in the notion of who exactly gets to be an American citizen.

    Steve writes, "Citizenism calls upon Americans to favor the welfare, even at some cost to ourselves, of our current fellow citizens over that of foreigners and internal factions."

    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/americans-first/

    "Our current fellow citizens". That includes a whole lot of people who don't wish me and mine well a d who will never be in favor of "citizenism". I would be expected to favor the welfare of people who would never return the favor. That is in essence no different from what we have now.

    Here's a current fellow citizen, a theoretical astro-physicist, no less, born right here in the U.S.: Chanda Prescod-Weinstein. She is also an Angry Black Woman who tells us in her Slate article: "Most saliently in the context of the Google memo, our scientific educations almost never talk about the invention of whiteness and the invention of race in tandem with the early scientific method which placed a high value on taxonomies—which unsurprisingly and almost certainly not coincidentally supported prevailing social views."

    Does anyone here really believe this woman would subscribe to the reciprocity inherent in and an essential element of "citizenism"?

    I don't want shitlibs in here any more than you do. But Trump is incredibly flawed and stupid, and you hardly need to be a leftist to see that. It stands to reason that anyone who never criticizes him is dumb and/or dishonest.

    Dude – you’ve published 3,427 comments/122,600 words here. That’s close to 300 pages.

    And you’re *still* bitching about it being an “echo chamber?”

    Breaking News! EVERYONE is incredibly flawed in their own way. Some are more annoying than others.

    Stupid? Well are you the first non-politician businessman (huckster) who got elected POTUS? You must be really stupid if not. Much, much stupider than stupid old Mr. Trump.

    Trump is at least amusing and never boring or annoying. Sorry to say we can’t say the same for you.

    This site really is as big an echo chamber as any SJW forum. Anyone who dares to criticize Dear Leader Sailer, who never criticizes Supreme Leader Trump, must be a troll, right?

    Do you have a specific criticism of Trump that you would like to argue for, or are you simply emoting randomly?

    The Daily Doodle
    August 8, 2018

    Today, we celebrate the first glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directives. We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure ideology—where each worker may bloom, secure from the pests purveying contradictory truths.

    Our Unification of Thoughts is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth. We are one people, with one will, one resolve, one cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death, and we will bury them with their own confusion. We shall prevail!
     

    Diversity is Unity.
    Harmony is Freedom.

    Abandon all Spine ye who Enter Here.

    One Truth, One Mind, One Happiness!

    Resistance is futile.

    About the form on smoking, I don't know if that was anything special for Colorado, Steve. I have seen these all over for about 10 years. What I don't like is the stupid passive voice. "If smoking occurs in this room, I will forfeit $250 ..., blah, blah". Hell, there's a big assumption in there making it something a lawyer would probably have a field day with. "Hey man, I signed that form, but I'm not responsible for spontaneous combustion from that cheap-ass China-made TV!"

    “If smoking occurs in this room, I will forfeit $250 …”

    That’s a double usage of the active voice.

    In contrast, coming to your 8 am class already baked is considered cool.
     
    Otoh people like that are rarely up at 8 am surely? I find it hard enough stone cold sober (I'm a night person).

    Back in the 90s I had neighbors, a childless married couple in their 40s, who were high all the time. My ex-wife used to catch the train to work in the morning, and she would occasionally be headed to the station just behind said couple, who would be puffing away on a joint to help them face the day.

    They both had jobs working for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
