Some people believe that the technology sector would provide a refuge from the leftist libshit mainstream, but that is not necessarily the case. Tech loves their “diversity”, which normally means that every woman who knows how to use a mouse will be hired as an “agile coach” or “scrum master” or “change agent” and whatnot, where she can boss nerds around and tell them how they should work on product innovations.
In particular in the US, the leftist shitlib bias is rather strong, though. For instance, news aggregator Hacker News is full of retards who get their panties in a twist when they hear a word like meritocracy, and who believe that the reason there are so few Latinos and blacks in tech is because of collusion of the whiteys, and not because they are on average a lot less intelligent. In a marvelous display of double think, they can’t seem to acknowledge that the strong presence of Asians, due to their inherently higher IQ, undermines the “all men are equal” nonsense those feeble minds love to spout. “If the Asians could do it, then why not the Blacks!”, those who’ve been educated so much they ended up getting stupider mutter.
It’s no surprise that those lefties who think they are at the forefront of technology because they watch HD porn on their iPhones and donated to Bernie Sanders with a click on a website get a bit uncomfortable when facing views that contradict their own. It’s even worse if you’re a shitlib leftie who’s out of work and has to put food on his table, and the only offer is from a company that promotes the traditional family unit. This is what happened to some hapless shitlib who bought into the bootcamp hype and paid an eye-watering $21k for 24 weeks of instruction in web development instead of teaching himself what he needed to know. As he thought he was in quite a quagmire, he posted on tech-shitlib watering hole r/cscareerquestions, wondering whether working at a “polarizing” company will hurt his future career, despite not having a career yet.
The job was at “Focus on the Family”, who love the core family but, unsurprisingly, aren’t too fond of gays raising kids and all that. I’d say it’s a laudable cause, but what did the fellow shitlibs on that forum think? It was quite something:
– “hate group”
– “regressive world view”
– “rancid organization”
More shocking comments included:
I used to be a tech recruiter at a few large companies in NYC. Myself and 90% of my peers would’ve thrown your resume in the trash immediately. I wouldn’t want to bring in someone who could potentially make other devs feel uncomfortable, even open us up to lawsuits.
Or this one:
In my [huge software corp], being suspected of any conservative leaning or even lack of hatred towards conservatives is immediate cause for ostracizing, including people threatening to treat people differently in a professional setting.
(…) It seems to be widely accepted under the “it’s not just a political opinion, it is a direct threat to our coworkers because conservatives are anti-LGBTQ, anti-women, anti-muslims, etc.”. (…) If desperate, find work at wholesome organizations such as P0rnTube.
From this post we learn how lefties in tech view their industry:
If you ever want to get a job on either coast you should steer clear IMO. Most companies shouldn’t cause too much trouble on your resume — drugs, porn, gambling are probably all fine. But FOTF is basically a hate group and would get your resume thrown out anywhere I’ve ever worked…
Yeah, drugs, porn, whoring, single moms, life on welfare are all fine, but if you want to get a job that indirectly contributes to strengthening society, you’ll get into trouble.
A practical example: my current team has a gay dude married to a dude. I’m not a hiring manager, but let’s imagine I am. I see a resume from someone who had worked for FOTF. How am I supposed to determine if the candidate is a homophobe who sincerely supported his employer’s promotion of discrimination and hate speech and will have problems working with gays, or just a “money does not smell” type?
So, let’s say you hire a deranged feminist — how would you know that she doesn’t cause trouble at work and make life hell for her white male peers? Right, that’s different!
The thread starter pointed out that that non-profit doesn’t engage in lying and deception. That’s apparently not good either:
Yes, I would be employed directly by Focus on the Family. It seems it would be difficult to obfuscate the name as it would go against the nature of the organization to assist me with that. Any phone number I provided would lead directly to someone who would identify that I worked for Focus on the Family.
Better get a job at a shady porn site, then!
It’s not a secret that a lot of Bay Area IT people are liberal or at least pro gay rights. I can imagine them not liking a candidate who had worked for rabid religious zealot douchebags. I can also imagine employers in other places caring less about that but still caring.
So, working for “religious zealots” is bad, but working for libshit zealots is not, right?
So, if you’re conservative, you better put up a front, at least if you work in the Bay Area or on the East Coast. Based on my experience in corporate Europe in a male-dominated field, people relatively freely express conservative views. I even experienced and entire group ganging up on some leftist PhD student who claimed that we needed large-scale immigration from Third World shitholes in order to “rejuvenate society” and “give society a creative boost”. I have a hard time seeing this happen at some “progressive” tech office in the US.
