Here is the full interview Jordan B Peterson had with fired Google rebel James Damore. I know Peterson has many fans and I agree with him more often than not, but, to be honest, I don’t watch the whole thing. Peterson can be a bit boring and Damore is not a media person at all.
I skipped through it and the Google hero pretty much repeats what he has already said in the memo. Yet, if you want to hear it in his own words, have some ironing to do, feel welcome to listen to it.
Thanks to the Geller Report, I get to hear about the (probable) terror attack in France. I wouldn’t hear from it through German media, a shame! No, it’s disgusting! I don’t want to hear about Donald Trump’s former home being rent out and other yellow press tosh when our European soldiers are attacked and wounded. It’s sickening. Which side is our press actually on? Traitors!
Edit: Today 10th August, they start mentioning it.
The suspect arrested after the attack on soldiers in Levallois-Perret on 9 August was identified.
Born in 1980 and named Hamou B, he resides in the Yvelines zip code 78000 where a search is currently taking place, according to police sources. After several hours of cavalry, a man traveling aboard the vehicle who drove on soldiers in Levallois-Perret (Hauts-de-Seine), wounding six of them, was arrested on 9 August in mid- On the A16 motorway towards Calais, at the commune of Leulinghen-Bernes. According to police sources, the man is called Hamou B, was born in 1980 and lives in Yvelines.
A search is in progress at his home. To escape arrest, the driver hit one or more vehicles, and the police fired several times, according to a judicial source. If the investigators confirm that this was the vehicle that struck the soldiers in Levallois-Perret, they did not confirm at this stage that the driver arrested was indeed the one who overthrew the soldiers. The security forces have been tracking a BMW vehicle since the early morning after fleeing a group of Operation Sentinel soldiers four days after an attempt to attack other soldiers at the tower Eiffel.
Against the backdrop of a strong terrorist threat in France, the government denounced a “deliberate act”, and the anti-terrorist prosecutor seized the investigation.
German state of Lower-Saxony seems to have more money invested to control ‘private’ businesses than some openly Socialist countries.
\By Joseph Nasr and Thomas Escritt BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s Free Democrats (FDP) party has called for the state of Lower Saxony to sell its $9 billion stake in Volkswagen, seizing on the emissions scandal at the carmaker as an opportunity to burnish its pro-business credentials ahead of an election. The state’s ownership of a […]
Edit: Having seen more about Finis Germania, I share the opinion that the book is anti-Semitic. That does not justify the efforts to silence it, which backfired and did a great harm to the Jewish cause.
The German literary establishment unanimously denounced it, too. It is a bad book. Bad book! It is a bad book of essays attacking said media/establishment – and the German government – for not taking citizens’ concerns about migrants seriously. Finis Germania has effectively been banned, in other words.
This is not so terribly interesting, right? I agree. But what is interesting here is that the ban has turned Finis Germania into a bestseller. What does that tell us about what is really going on in Germany today? Down here were the little people live, I mean.
Don’t worry, though. This could never happen in your country, folks. Or could it?
Through its blind embrace of Angela Merkel’s open door to Middle Eastern migrants, the German media has lost the trust of a whole section of the German public. When the press calls something extreme, many no longer listen.
Now that Breitbart is on a mission to take Google apart I may let up on it a bit. The memo culprit James Damore, a biology PhD from Harvard, has been fired. Breitbart has reached out to Google’s employees to speak out about their mistreatments. I think this could be the beginning of Google’s ending and that is ultimately a good thing.
Main competitor Microsoft (search engine behind bing and yahoo and probably the most inclusive work place in the world) does not display the same madness. The Yahoo image and video search is of a higher quality than Google’s. And what are we searching other than official websites of organisations or Wikipedia, anyway? Google’s edge is in the prettier design. All other advantages have gone for a while now.
Two decades ago people thought Microsoft is evil and invincible. Today their products are choices on a competitive market. The outrage they have caused where about technological issues that could be fixed.
What the recent development shows, however, is how much of silicon valley has become a cult. Every of their ills are commonplace at Scientology or Jehovah’s Witness churches. They are just a far more influential cult, something we have not seen in the Western World since the decline of the big churches in Europe after WWII. Maybe it is something on par with the rise of Islamism.
One nagging question remains. When will it stop? The McCarthy era was a matter of about five years. You could be an open socialist without losing your job soon after. The social justice warrior era, however, dies a slow death, a very slow death.
Part of its zombi antics may have to do with its long build-up. The McCarthy craze was a shock, strongly felt and short, a phase that set in after Hitler was defeated and the Soviets suddenly flashed their claws.
The social justice warrior disease started decades ago with good causes and ended not just as rackets but as cults. And as in any cult the victims don’t play a role to the true followers who are many.
Because it is so old and has grown out of something fairly innocent, everyone of us had been part of the cult in one way or another and I wonder if I was ever more into it than on the fringes. Alternatively, I might have been so far involved in the inner workings to get thrown out of it with a special vigor. I considered myself a feminist when nobody else did and asked for gay marriage when the Green party people were not even there yet.
Still, I don’t remember to have ever tried to silence people. I don’t remember to have ever had that blood lust for people being removed from their jobs, their families, their children and so on. At least, well, I don’t remember it.
I was indifferent, though, about the dismissal of star news anchor Eva Herman, who criticised feminism in 2006. When she had to leave, our country was still open to debates. I was okay with it because she was rich and I believed it wasn’t a big deal for her.
In one way or another we all followed the unnamed religion. So many ‘facts’ circled around unchecked that it took us a while to dismiss a significient number of them. A necessity to wake up. One will never be free of all of them.
I believe that the monster can only be killed by telling the truth and busting the lies. The character of us human beings will never change. Some will always find excuses for witchhunts. A climate of lies and fear just makes it easier for such individuals. More people must speak up. As long as only few dare the price they pay will be high. James Damore paid his price.
