RUSH: This is fascinating here. The guy that wrote the manifestos got all kinds of people coming out and defending everything he said. Scientists at Rutgers are coming out defending the guy as having been right on point with everything. Hes basically said, Look, dont blame anybody. Women just arent as interested in tech jobs, and so therefore theyre not that well suited.
This is the reason why 25% of the tech workforce in Silicon Valley is female. Nobodys denying them. Its just thats not what they want to do. And you would have thought that hell has been unleashed. But there are great lessons here about how freedom of speech and freedom of everything end up being whittled away and ended. And whats happening at Google, whats happening at various college campuses, is exactly the way freedom is lost.
RUSH: Im not gonna get the Google stuff in. Im not gonna get free speech being the way we lose our freedom, but thats crucial, Ive gotta do that tomorrow. Free speech is the way we will lose our free speech. I meant that to be provocative. Because its exactly right. The free speech movement, shall we say.
RUSH: Okay, the Google situation, folks, it is a microcosm for this: Freedom does not end by people running around chanting or protesting, Down with freedom! Thats not how it ends. Freedom is killed off by people claiming that the greater good or the general will or the betterment of the community require speech patrol. Yes, for the greater good, the general will, the good of the community, we must make sure that speech that doesnt offend or hurt isnt uttered and isnt heard. Yes, we cant hurt anybodys feelings, and we cant offend anybody.
And this is exactly how loss of freedom begins, as a good thing, as a compassionate thing. Venezuela is a present living example. So is whats happening on American college campuses, and even here at Google. And I want to spend some time explaining this and delving into it, which Ill do tomorrow, dovetailing it with some of the developments and lawsuits coming out of this Google manifesto.
Well, let’s hope those scientists have TENURE... they will need it!!!;)
islam is a totalitarian death cult founded by a child rapist.
I’m a broken record on this statement. The reasons are several. But primarily, I’m making the point in any venue that attempts to shut down politically incorrect speech that I will exercise politically incorrect speech TO THE DEATH.
Soon every college’s degrees will fit the demographics, and science will collapse.
Out of curiosity, what percentage of women make up the auto-repair workforce?
Wrong question why have men taking all the jobs away from women in the lingerie department
