Ex-Google employee James Damore: 'Underground conservative network' in Silicon Valley being hunted by leftists
You must be careful what you say publicly if you work at Google... or Facebook, for that matter.
Damore went on to say there is an "underground conservative network," looking to connect people that work at different companies. He stated that there is a lot of verification needed to join one of these groups.

Fired Google Engineer James Damore: Progressives Can't See Their Own Echo Chamber
This article includes an embedded hour and a half long interview with Damore.
Damore explained that there is now a law suit against Google in progress, citing one example of a person who was fired for not attending a gay pride parade: "I'm of course for gay rights, but someone didn't want to go to a gay pride parade, and they got fired for that. It is like, a little too far."

Google Memo: Beyond the culture war | FACTUAL FEMINIST
Here's another take on the Google Memo situation. It's still a hot topic and it will be interesting to see how the lawsuit goes.

People stuck in echo chambers seldom realize that they are in echo chambers. Most people are not comfortable questioning authority or standing up against the herd. It's easier to just go along with the flow. They don't like people who rock the boat. Group think and echo chambers are problems which need to be dealt with.

YouTube bans alt-news channel Activist Post without warning or reason
This is a dangerous trend. Are we headed for a society where we are only allowed to discuss approved perspectives and topics?

Twitter’s double-standard? Roger Stone threatens Twitter over suspension
Anyone who calls into question the value of the work done by Assange or Snowden truly is a worthless piece of human excrement. Watch the video to see a few such specimens.

'Twitter said I was bot': US blogger banned for being 'Russian troll'
Twitter squelching free speech. Not that Twitter has much credibility, but it does seem that they have discriminated against an individual in this case, thus violating her civil rights.

'Reasonable answers to unreasonable questions' – ex-US diplomat on 'Russian meddling' hearings
This really is McCarthyism 2.0. These hearings are very much reminiscent of the McCarthy Hearings which took place during the 1950s. The similarity is extremely eerie.
