Once this attitude prevails it happens from all sides.
If you're talking about the Colorado baker, he sold plenty of baked goods to gay people, including the ones he refused to bake a wedding cake.

BTW, Google should have the right to fire conservatives if they choose. Google should have the right to say they won't hire any white Christians if the choose.

Google, Amazon, Yahoo, MSN, etc. All far left, radical, social justice warrior companies. I won't buy anything from them. Too liberal/progressive, and intolerant of other views. No thanks.

I think it's interesting that you describe racism and sexism as conservative. This kind of honesty is refreshing.

Honestly if he doesn't like the company's culture, he should work somewhere else.

From an outside point of view, this means Google and other companies only want to exist in an echo chamber. While politics should stay out of the work place, they do drive some of our decisions. What's next for Google, not hire and blacklist people who have differing engineering ir marketing approaches?

I know which group contains a whole lot of people who think certain races and a sex need assistance because they can't do it in their own, and it's not conservatives.

Companies do not hire candidates that don't fit in their company culture all the time. I don't see why this case is different.
Google manages his offices and employees as the board likes, engineer doesn't like it, engineer doesn't have to work there. If he feels discriminated against slap them with a lawsuit but don't be whining.
