James Damore, the employee fired from Google for writing the now-infamous internal memo issued a scathing response to the company’s decision in a recent Wall Street Journal essay.

Damore said, amongst other things, that his firing supported the arguments he made in the document he wrote.

Check it out (via The Daily Caller):

“My 10-page document set out what I considered a reasoned, well-researched, good-faith argument, but as I wrote, the viewpoint I was putting forward is generally suppressed at Google because of the company’s ‘ideological echo chamber,’” he wrote. “My firing neatly confirms that point. How did Google, the company that hires the smartest people in the world, become so ideologically driven and intolerant of scientific debate and reasoned argument?”

Damore argued in his op-ed that the company didn’t have a problem with the memo when it was first released; he was able to have reasonable discussions with his colleagues until the memo went viral and people began accusing him of misogyny.

“They sent angry emails to Google’s human-resources department and everyone up my management chain, demanding censorship, retaliation and atonement,” Damore wrote. “Upper management tried to placate this surge of outrage by shaming me and misrepresenting my document, but they couldn’t really do otherwise: The mob would have set upon anyone who openly agreed with me or even tolerated my views.”

He went on:

“It saddens me to leave Google and to see the company silence open and honest discussion. 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,” he wrote.
