Google should suspend, possibly fire Dave Hogue after profanity filled attack on GOP

After Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Saturday, October 6, several employees and executives at Google expressed their rage on Twitter.

Google’s Design lead Dave Hogue tweeted, “You are finished, GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F***. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL. I hope the last images burned into your slimy, evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames.”

Hogue deleted the tweet and posted, “Yes, those opinions are mine personally, and I am responsible for them. Yes, I should have been more eloquent and less condemning. Yes, I still believe the @GOP is wrong and not serving your best interests. Yes, I still believe we can do much better.”

Google Ventures partner and product manager Ken Norton shared a tweet promoting a PAC to tell Senator Collins to vote no on Kavanaugh. He also tweeted, “Abolish the Senate.”

Julia Ferraioli, an OpenSource Senior Developer Advocate at Google, responded to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s quote, “These things always blow over.” She wrote, “We will prove you wrong,” and then later tweeted that while she had planned to go protest at the Capitol, she could not because of illness.

Google was quoted by Fox News as saying, “What employees say in their personal capacity has no bearing on the way we build or operate our products.”

That’s where things get tricky.

“No bearing on the way” is a hard sell from the Left who was just demanding Kavanaugh step aside because he doesn’t have the demeanor after his outburst over Democrats.

What does Google want to say to customers? Are all of them created equal when the staff is raging with profanity and hate.

Hogue should be let go…not because he doesn’t have the right to say these things – he does. So does the staff, those mentioned and otherwise.

But this free speech is currently confirming that Google is a biased, judgmental company, slanted against the right wing.
