A conservative software engineer at Google recently published a blog post claiming that the tech giant has become dominated by “outrage mobs and witch hunts.”
In a recent blog post to Medium.com, a conservative Google software engineer named Mike Wacker detailed how the internal company culture at Google has become dominated by “outrage mobs and witch hunts.” Wacker first takes issues with Google’s stance on “hate speech” and its failure to define exactly what the term means.

Wacker then notes that employee petitions have been used by Google staff on a regular basis to force the tech firms hand in a number of political matters:

While some of their rhetoric is so outlandish that you have no choice but to laugh it, the psychological effects that these outrage mobs have on their targets is nothing to laugh about. Just read this excerpt from Kay Coles James about her own experience with Google’s outrage mob:
In 1961, at age 12, I was one of two-dozen black children who integrated an all-white junior high school in Richmond. White...
