Google Managers Kept Blacklists of Conservative Employees – Vowed Not to Promote “Hostile” Conservatives

On Monday James Damore, a former Google engineer who was fired from the tech giant, filed a class action lawsuit against Google in a Santa Clara Superior Court in Northern California.

Damore claims Google discriminates against white males with conservative political views.

The court filing is extraordinary. Damore and his lawyer accuse Google managers of keeping blacklists on conservative employees to block their advancement in the company.

Business Insider reported:

A well-known Republican San Francisco lawyer has filed a lawsuit against Google seeking to represent white, male or conservative employees who believe the company has discriminated against them.

The lawyer is Harmeet Dhillon, a partner with the Dhillon Law Group in San Francisco and the former chairwoman of the Republican Party in San Francisco.

She has been on the hunt for such victims since she took on fired Google engineer James Damore as a client in August. And on Monday she presented the first fruits of her  research in a 161-page complaint that’s chock full of allegations and  screenshots.

The most jaw-dropping allegation is that “Google publicly endorsed blacklists” of conservatives. The lawsuit claims that several hiring managers publicly vowed not to hire people categorized as “hostile voices” aka conservatives.

For instance, one manager wrote on one internal forum, “I will never, ever hire/transfer you onto my team. Ever.”

Another manager wrote in another, “I keep a written blacklist of people whom I will never allow on or near my team, based on how they view and treat their coworkers. That blacklist got a little longer today.”

The lawsuit cites another post from another hiring manager that said, “If you express a dunderheaded opinion about religion, about politics, or about ‘social justice’, it turns out I am allowed to think you’re a halfwit… I’m perfectly within my rights to mentally categorize you in my [d*ckhead] box… Yes, I maintain (mentally, and not (yet) publicly).”

On Tuesday James Damore spoke with Tucker Carlson about his court filing against the tech giant.
