The ads appear to be related to the saga of James Damore, the Google engineer who was sacked earlier this week after writing a 3,000-word essay criticizing Google's diversity policies in which he suggested that biological differences in women could make them less suited to work at Google. The tech industry is already beset by accusations of widespread sexism and discrimination, and suddenly here was someone arguing that genetic differences rather than bias alone might explain why there are more men than women in tech jobs.
He wrote that when the document went viral, "the upper management sent angry emails to Google's human-resources department and everyone up his management chain, demanding censorship, retaliation and atonement".
"Google's firing of James Damore is the flashpoint here", said the pro-Trump Posobiec, known for peddling conspiracy theories such as "Pizzagate".
Sundar Pichai, the company's chief executive officer stated that the letter went against some of Google's code of conduct of conduct.
Google's internal "Dory" system allows employees to ask questions and then vote on questions posed by other employees so managers can address the most pressing ones.
My goal here instead is to relate another Google bias-claims-and-employee-privacy story from last month, which would have counted as fairly significant news in its own right had it not soon been eclipsed by the memo episode. With one lengthy post, a Google employee ignited a fierce debate about the company's culture.
Quite surprisingly, Apple employees were split nearly evenly with 51 to 49 employees favouring Google's decision to fire Damore.
The U.S. far right plans to take its dispute with Google to the company's doorsteps, with a nationwide "March on Google" set to take place this month.
"An engineer fired for simply expressing an opinion that ran counter to Google's politically-charged atmosphere of an "Ideological Echo Chamber" as (Damore) put it. But our Dory questions appeared externally this afternoon, and on some websites Googlers are now being named personally", Pichai said in an email to staff.
A number of employees sent emails to Pichai and told managers that they planned to skip the meeting because they were anxious that they would face online reprisals for speaking out.
Someone with access to an employee-only version of Google Plus made screenshots of messages written by Google employees pledging to create blacklists of colleagues not supportive of the company's diversity measures. Fired4Truth, widely believed to be Damore'sTwitter account, hit 35,000 followers in a matter of days. In a recent Blind survey, majority of the employees from these firms voted against Google's decision to fire Damore.
Damore claimed in a complaint filed on Monday to the National Labor Relations Board that he had been subject to "coercive statements" at Google.
Representatives for Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment for this story. It signifies their belief that liberals stifle free speech by humiliating right-wing voices.
