James Damore has been fired by Google after an internal memo he wrote about its diversity policies was leaked online.

James Damore earned himself some national recognition back in August when he was fired from Google after writing and distributing an internal memo that criticized Google’s diversity policies. Since his firing Damore has been relatively quiet, opting to now share his opinions and beliefs via Twitter as opposed to an office memo. On Wednesday he offered up some thoughts on the Ku Klux Klan that were controversial and questionable to say the least.

To open, Damore tweeted out a poll in which he admitted that “the Ku Klux Klan is horrible,” but they at least deserve some credit for coming up with names like Grand Wizard, a name Damore feels is cool.

And with that tweet, the floodgates of rage had been flung open and Damore was put on the defensive, although his defense didn’t do much to silence any of his critics. If anything, it only added fuel to already growing fire.

The tweets promptly ushered Damore back into the public eye and once again made him a topic of national conversation as the fine people of Twitter were quick to point out the flaws in his logic and line of thinking. Reactions ranged from variations on “what are you thinking?” to “are you kidding me?” with a few choice words sprinkled throughout.

One of the more popular response’s to Damore’s tweets came from a Neil deGrasse Tyson parody account.

Damore’s Twitter feed is mostly comprised of right-wing talking points and conservative cat nip. Prior to his ill-advised KKK tweet storm, there was one about the Berkeley Free Speech Week where he denied planning on speaking, but tweeted out his support for the event. One of his most frequent subjects is censorship and free speech. Then when he’s able to, he’s not above taking a few shots at his previous employer.

Damore has yet to respond to any of the replies and/or tweet any follow-ups. As of 2:46 p.m. his poll had received over 15,000 votes with “yes” narrowly edging out “no, the names aren’t cool” by 1%.

Here is a screenshot of the tweets in the event that Damore deletes them.

FAUXIAL MEDIA

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s CONSCIONABLE, and RESPONSIBLE response to James Damore’s musings about the “quaintness” of the KKK’s “self- titling” of their “body-politic” NOTWITHSTANDING!… and such similar CONSCIONABLE and RESPONSIBLE views by way of other “learned souls”!… I’m not “impressed” by the “FAUXIAL MEDIA TOOL” known as “TWITter”! Whose creators, would have us believe that it is a “socially organic creation” by our “organic society (i.e., our ‘unbranded society’!… or that part of society that/ which IS NOT A-C-T-I-N-G I-N T-H-E G-U-I-S-E, of being ‘organic’!)”! “TWITter”, is a “KERDOS MEDIA TOOL”/ FOR PROFIT TOOL, P-R-E-T-E-N-D-I-N-G to be “socially fashioned” by our “organic communities’ interests”!
.
“TWITter” isn’t given its tag for nothing!… but, I can’t figure out why a transaction is called a “tweet”! I guess, the OBVIOUS TWITter ascription for its transaction, is reserved for one who implements said transaction!… nonetheless, God give its hapless “thinking souls”, the WISDOM to “LEAVE THE PACK”!
.
I have NO INTENTION of using this FAUXIAL MEDIA TOOL, N-O-R C-A-T-E-R-I-N-G T-O I-T-S I-N-O-R-G-A-N-I-C S-U-B-S-C-R-I-B-E-R-S!… whether these subscribers be aware of its “UNCONSCIONABLE NATURE”, OR NOT! That is to say, until: a) it’s in the “CONTROL” of our ‘ORGANIC COMMUNITIES’; b) it adheres to ALL ICT Digital Human Rights; c) it’s COST-FREE (given the said “ESSENTIAL NATURE” of its technoma!… and so, should be available to a POOR PERSON on a rooftop during a flood, and not just, to someone who subscribes to its “clique services”!– A-N-D, A-T A P-R-I-C-E!); d) it is programmed with Free and Open Source Software (FOSSware) and Free and Open Source Hardware (FOSHware); and e), it’s given a more “user-friendly” tag!

Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!

I don’t understand what the big hullabaloo is ?
The clan, AKA ,KKK is nothing more than a ( white antifa ) created by the left ( Democrats ) to put fear in the hearts of Americans . And to create a distraction so that our government leaders can sit on their ass and do nothing. And then claim they’ll get back to work right after vacation. Now the new president president Donald J Trump actually worked for a living something these politicians know nothing about. So next time when you look at your husband and you tell him, honey I can’t pay the bills how are we going to afford dental, medical insurance, gas, rent, food , gas bill and water bill .
Think about those politicians that are taking a vacation every 3 months. That have full Medical ,Dental ,eye care. And some even have a car paid for by our tax dollars . How come now the Democrats want to be your hero before they were treating us like shit
