While Damore was sacked, a huge online debate continues...

Google's Mountain View headquarters, along with other US offices of the company, will be targeted in the August 19 event, Posobiec said.

The engineer's widely shared memo, titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber", criticized Google for pushing mentoring and diversity programs and for "alienating conservatives". The memo went public and created a social media storm. "I think to do that well we really need to have people internally who represent the world in totality. For many, including myself, working at Google is a major part of their identity, nearly "like a cult" with its own leaders and saints, all believed to righteously uphold the sacred motto of "Don't be evil", the former-Google employee wrote. This week a male software engineer at Google circulated a lengthy internal memo explaining why women were less likely than men to have senior roles.

One of the world's leading philosophers, Peter Singer, believes that Google was wrong in firing Damore. Today, New York Times columnist David Brooks called for Google CEO Sundar Pichai to resign over his handling of the situation accusing him of joining the mob against Damore. "I think it is".

According to images published on Twitter, Damore had a photoshoot on Thursday with Duke outside what looks like the merchandise store on Google's Mountain View campus. This is hurting minority Googlers because it creates the perception that they are less qualified.

One ad reads "Goolag", a play on words referring to gulags, the Soviet forced-labor camps from the 20th century. It isn't certain this actually is Damore, but there are two signs of the account's veracity: the pictures themselves, and the fact that Duke tagged @Fired4Truth on his own Twitter account with the caption: "Not all heroes wear capes".

Fifty-six percent of its workers are white and 35 percent are Asian, while Hispanic and Black employees make up 4 percent and 2 percent of its workforce, respectively, according to the company's latest diversity report. Volunteers are planning a march on the company offices in nine cities on August 19, according to the March on Google website. Google should change its motto from "Don't be evil" to "Only be evil when it suits the narrative".

"If Google continues to ignore the very real issues raised by its diversity policies and corporate culture, it will be walking blind into the future-unable to meet the needs of its remarkable employees and sure to disappoint its billions of users", Damore wrote.
