Liberals remind me of religious nuts. They react in the same exact way when someone questions their belief system.

Jaana Dogan with her misspelled hipster name expects HR to save her from the evil man saying mean things. Not a contrary argument that makes any sense to anyone, just demanding HR squash this insurgency of truth in her BS world.

Default Google blacklists conservative employees

"I will never, ever hire hire/transfer you onto my team. Ever. I don’t care if you are perfect fit of technically excellent or whatever,” declared former employee Adam Fletcher in a post on Google’s internal, staff-only Google+ network: “Internal Plus.” “I will actively not work with you, even to the point where your team or product is impacted by this decision. I’ll communicate why to your manager if it comes up.”

“You’re being blacklisted by people at companies outside of Google,” he continued. “You might not have been aware of this, but people know, people talk. There are always social consequences.”


Seems like this might be very lucrative lawsuit. Read article here.

Isn't this a private matter between an employer and employee?

I'm confused on what it has to do with me.

Even though I personally disagree with firing him, I would've fired him too. It was simply necessary to avoid a massive public backlash/boycotts/etc. Google had a responsibility to its shareholders (myself included) to do this.
