Apex Fallacy: Google Edition

It has been speculated around the web that James Damore, the fella who challenged Google, has a measure of Asperger’s; which is common among techie types.  It often leads to the inability to read social situations.  It has been speculated that that is might be why he challenged the deeply entrenched power at Google; the thought is that he did not know any better.  If he had challenged a conservative institution, he would have been hailed as a courageous hero speaking truth to power, and there would have been no suggestion of Asperger’s.  In any event, he did what he did, and the world is better for it.

He was on the wrong side with respect to the intelligent and cool people.  These people might be intelligent in some way, but clearly they have large blind spots in their intelligence.  As for being cool. well I suppose that we will take their word for it.  As for Damore, he is a man, a white man.  These creatures are assumed to be reaping the benefit of both the white and patriarchal privileges.   Consequently, it is just fine to pile on and criticize him.  Furthermore, he appears to be nerdly, generating no tingles in women.  Perhaps this is the ultimate sin.

It is assumed that men are powerful, tough and can take abuse; so it is fine to knock them down a peg.  In reality, lots of men are not in such a position.  These days, it often is not the case at all.  But the fiction is maintained for political reasons.  Where will all of this lead?

    I think his suit will bring great embarrassment to Google. It may also bring home the point that, as tech giants mature, they are corrupted by politics, to the exclusion of reasoning employees. It is a terrible waste. Google has a market capitalization of $780 billion on revenues of $90 billion.

    It comes down to this: A majority of women actually still believe they are treated like second class citizens. They have bought the propaganda that they are still down trodden by the patriarchy.

    And they honestly have no interest in the truth of a situation. Their selfish, solipsistic nature only cares about how a situation makes them “feel”. If she’s feels discriminated against, then she is. If she feels uncomfortable or a guy is “creepy”, then it’s harassment or “assault”.

    And it all comes down to power and money. Read the stated objectives of #timesup. It’s a blatant attempt to oust men from positions of power and a bald faced resource appropriation.

    Nothing scandalizes a leftist like the truth. Point out that women and men are different, that black Americans commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime, that most terrorist acts are committed by Muslims, and the Left leaps to its collective feet in openmouthed shock, like Margaret Dumont after a Groucho Marx wisecrack. This is racism! This is sexism! This is some sort of phobia! I’m shocked, shocked to find facts being spoken in polite company!

    No one is really shocked, of course. This is simply a form of bullying. The Left has co-opted our good manners and our good will in order to silence our opposition to their bad policies. The idea is to make it seem impolite and immoral to mention the obvious.

    I wrote the following a few minutes ago on a friend’s Facebook page. In reading through the last few comments here, it occurs to me that the general sentiment I expressed also applies to one’s approach to other issues, such as white privilege, dating transgender folks, establishing frame and maintaining domain (for both women and men, for both have each). In short, if you have a right to be who you are, then so do I have a right to be who I am. (Apppologies in advance if the formatting is screwed up, as I am copying and pasting here.)

    Wade said to Jim: ” Amazing to me that you’ll defend trump’s racially charged words.”

    richardp responded: The object of Trump’s adjective, whatever it was, was a country. Would adjectives such as ‘backward’, ‘third-world’, ‘failed’, ‘below our standards’, when applied to the word ‘country’ have been racist also?? If not, then why say that the adjective Trump reportedly applied to African countries was racist? There are differences in skill sets among different groups of people. There are differences in capabilities among countries. Can we not realistically point this out? Can we be selective in the skill-sets that we prefer for folks who want to be admitted to our country? Of course that is discrimination. ‘You can’t keep what you can’t defend’ is a truth that applies to every facet of every person’s life, as well as to countries. The very process of defending what you have against someone who wishes to take it away from you is discrimination. It is the blatant demonstration that you believe that you should have it and the other should not. Who of us would survive, let alone thrive, if we did not display that discriminatory attitute toward those who would take from us what we worked for, rather than work for it themselves (The fable of the ants and the grasshopper comes to mind). And I’m referring to those who would steal your lunch on the playground in third grade here. You can probably think of other applications on your own. And I’m sure Wade understands and agrees with everything I’ve said here. Otherwise, he would have nothing at this point in his life. And he has things. And he only has them because he discriminates in favor of himself. As do we all. That is how we survive.

    From Farmboy’s “Campus Reform” link:

    The first item on the lengthy list of transgressions is working “in a position of power in a predominantly white institution” and doing nothing “to change the white supremacist power structures within your departments, committees and institutional decision-making process.”

    Likewise, another sign of aiding white supremacy is thinking that marginalized colleagues who complain about oppressive work conditions are “difficult,” and saying “I am so sorry. This is unbelievable” to colleagues and students who claim “that they experienced microaggressions,” Dutt-Ballerstadt claims.

    The checklist further asserts that wanting to nominate “‘stellar’ (mostly men) and obviously ‘white’” colleagues for leadership positions and awards is also a sign of aiding white supremacy, and implicitly supports “a logic of meritocracy that is built on this racist assumption that everyone has had the same access and opportunities.”

    richardp comments: And what? You would have me promote less-than-stellar folks over stellar folks in my effort to keep my company competetive so that it survives and continues to provide employment? What value is there to less-than-stellar folks for me to promote them to the point that my company fails, and everyone (including the less-than-stellar folks I promoted) loses their job.

    Larry Moran comments (at the Farmboy gave):

    I am a middle-aged white male imbedded in a white, Eurocentric culture built by my white ancestors and their slaves, consisting of ancient stable ideas, Ideals, philosophies, and institutions, frameworks of laws, and which has produced the science, medicine, educational resources, art and literature, and technology, which make a healthy, wealthy, secure life possible for me and my loved ones in a society which is supreme on this planet.

    How would you have me feel? If the above list is “whiteness”, then I do indeed worship whiteness.

    You, whoever you are, are free to join me. But if you reject the ideals of “whiteness” you may not succeed.

    richardp adds to Larry Moran’s comment: Nothing is stopping the less-than-stellar folks from going out and creating their own companies. Except, perhaps, their less-than-stellar capabilities. Seems they should be thankful that the stellar folks have created a means for the less-than-stellar folks to earn a living.

    How does letting the grasshoppers eat all that the the ants have put away help everyone survive?

    I get that not everyone has had the same opportunities, and therefore, all don’t have the same skill sets. I do understand how lack of opportunity to acquire appropriate skill sets can hold people back. But, to paraphrase another saying, given that not everyone has the same skill sets, how then shall we live together? Given the reality of a discrepancy in skill sets, how does letting the less-than-stellar folks take over everything help everyone increase the quality of their lives?

    Just had family over tonight and we were all discussing Trump’s Shit Hole countries remarks. My parents wish he didn’t say things like that giving his enemies ammunition, but there are still so many people who are glad that he’s finally saying the things people have been too afraid to say.

    It was a very interesting family debate… lasting about an hour (and we all support Trump). Apparently the older generations used to believe that we Americans never talked about other countries like that – that they deserved a certain level of respect just because.

    My dad argued that no… we always knew we were better in a way and not in a prideful way he added – but in a more civilized way and ethically and morally, we always tried to extend aid to those countries because we took pity on them. That only came from understanding that they were practically incapable of surviving without that aid… because our ways really were better and not just a little better… much much better. He noted that a lot of our being “better” than them had stemmed from religious backgrounds from the immigrants who came before from countries that were much better intellectually and morally.

    I took his argument and extended it to discuss the way African, Haitian and especially Arab countries treat their own people and have for more than at least one century (centuries in some cases). Do they really deserve our respect just because they exist? Do they really bring anything of value to the world or are they making it worse off? Are they really “not” shit-hole countries? The differences in IQs and even the long-term leadership of those countries compared to Germanic and Nordic countries where the Africans and Arabs are invading are worth looking into.

    I brought up the nurses’ and police officers’ letters to the public about what is really going on with especially the African people invading Europe – the shocking vile behaviors and entitlement they have toward the nurses in the hospitals, getting very violent if ever asked for payment – expecting everything and I mean literally everything to be free for them. And their utter diabolic hatred for the white people there. It is hard to believe what is happening.

    Imagine my shock when I found out that the pussy-hat brigade was planning yet another “woman’s march” to protest the anniversary of the inauguration of our lawfully elected president. No, seriously, you could have knocked me down with a feather [sarcasm], I was that surprised.

    I mean, after all, a movement that started off protesting the removal of vague, unspecified rights from women who couldn’t actually even name a single right endangered by the election of Trump wouldn’t leave enough alone when after a year no rights have been removed from any woman anywhere in US territory. In fact, it could be argued that the #metoo movement has not only righted some long-festering Hollywood injustices and misbehavior but has encouraged women everywhere to go on the hunt for male scalps, deserved or not.

    In fact these “Women’s Marches” are the perfect leftist movement: No defined purpose, no particular benefit, but full of sound and fury, signifying nothing and lasting forever, all the while drawing in mindless idiots who want to be “activists” without understanding politics — or really much of anything. Since leftism is a positional good, they are the equivalent of Victorian ladies getting together to have tea and discuss how to save the underclasses who neither know about them nor want their help.
