Fired Google software engineer, James Damore, says being conservative and working at the tech behemoth is "like being gay in the 1950s."

Lol, that's perfect!

The article continues to misrepresent him though:

"Damore, the author of the controversial anti-diversity memo" -> Wrong, Damore is actually for diversity, reporter should read the document: "I strongly believe in gender and racial diversity, and I think we should strive for more."

"Damore wrote a 10-page memo claiming the gender gap in tech is a due to biological differences between men and women" -> Misrepresentation, Damore actually said "may in part explain", so again, the reporter should read the document.

Damore even wrote about exactly this kind of misrepresentation:

Psychological safety is built on mutual respect and acceptance, but unfortunately our culture of shaming and misrepresentation is disrespectful and unaccepting of anyone outside its echo chamber.

It is kinda sad. There was another report where they said a VP of Google was leading bLM chants in the campus-sigh..

Are conservatives finally willing to admit that they were wrong in the 1950s? Well, in any case, when conservatives are arrested and thrown in jail as deviants, then I'll buy this equivalency.
