Idiotic Activists Reportedly Smash Sound Equipment During James Damore Speech in Portland (VIDEO)

A speech at Portland State University by James Damore, author of the infamous Google memo, was interrupted on Saturday night when activists reportedly smashed the sound system.

The former Google engineer is currently suing the Silicon Valley giant for firing him over the controversial ten page memo about gender diversity and the difficulty conservatives face at the company.

The event was organized by student and journalist Andy Ngo, and his student group the Freethinkers. In response, the university organized multiple events to counter their panel.


Live tweeting the event, Ngo reported that activists had staged a walkout before “smashing” the sound system, causing the microphones to not work for approximately ten minutes.

The activists demanded that Damore was sexist and misogynistic for pointing out biological differences between men and women.

The memo, despite the thoughtful and scientific content, made massive waves online after his coworkers began complaining about it on social media. The text was ultimately leaked to Gizmodo, and the rest of liberal media and activists grabbed their pitchforks and began calling for his termination.

In response, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent a company-wide memo responding to the controversy, in which he asserted that Damore’s manifesto had in fact violated company policy.

“Portions of the memo violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace,” Pichai wrote. “To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK.”

Damore was ultimately terminated for his beliefs.

In an interview with journalist Tim Pool prior to the event, Ngo said that the speech was being targeted by a coalition of various far-left activist groups. Though he is not white, even he has been branded a “white nationalist” for his invitation to Damore.

“Some things in the realm of science has become really politicized,” Ngo said. “One of those things is research on sex differences, now all of a sudden it’s become taboo to talk about.”

Ngo said he had contacted many professors from the women’s studies department at Portland State to invite them to present an opposing viewpoint, but his offers were ignored or declined.

One woman was arrested at the event and charged with a misdemeanor.
