Congressman Dana Rohrbacher: The Mistreatment of Conservatives by Tech Giants Is a Civil Rights Issue


U.S. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) blasted Google in the aftermath of the James Damore firing, arguing that Silicon Valley’s treatment of conservatives and libertarians is a Civil Rights issue.

“The mistreatment of conservatives and libertarians by tech monopolies is a civil rights issue,” Rohrabacher, who was a speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan, wrote in a tweet on Thursday. Google employee James Damore was fired after circulating an internal memo on the company’s issues with ideological tolerance across political divides. More specifically, Damore argued that Google had cultivated an environment in which conservative-leaning employees opted to keep their mouths shut to avoid public shaming and social ostracization.

Rohrbacher additionally commented, “I am very troubled by @google’s treatment of James Damore. You shouldn’t lose your job for telling the truth!.”
