“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.”
Top Google executive David Hogue lost his damn mind on Twitter over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. In the now deleted tweet, Hogue wrote:
“You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F*CK. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL.”
He added: “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 eventually deleted the tweet and said he could have found a “more eloquent” way to express his thoughts.
Yes, I deleted that tweet.
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.

Yes, we know that his opinions are his own and doesn’t represent Google or his coworkers. But the news hasn’t been kind to Google lately over treatment of conservatives.
We all know you’re personally responsible for your opinion. The reason people care is because they know your opinion is shared by a bunch of people in similar positions of power, and they don’t trust that Google and others are treating conservatives fairly. Can you blame them?

A Google spokeswoman told Fox News: “What employees say in their personal capacity has no bearing on the way we build or operate our products.”
The company has denied a bias against conservatives. Google CEO Sundar Pichai met “with GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill last month to discuss the allegations and concerns about privacy issues and the firm’s re-entry into China.” A source described the meeting as “positive” and had a “tough but fair and respectful” tone.
But the bias doesn’t stop at Google.
During Kavanaugh’s hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Facebook had to hold a townhall because employees could not understand why a senior executive attended the hearing in support of Kavanaugh.
Joel Kaplan works as Facebook’s policy chief and is friends with Kavanaugh. He attended the hearing as a personal friend, not on business.
But that didn’t stop the snowflakes at the large social media company from going crazy. In fact, CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg attended and “spoke in an effort to diffuse internal tension.”
