Software Company Bans Woke Political Talk at Work

Here’s what happened…

Published

on

By banning political discussions at work, a software company has made a move that will likely become the norm after a few more years of fascist, left-wing wokesters turning the workplace into a constant PC battle zone.

The CEO of a company called Basecamp has outlawed political discussion at work and on the company’s internal communications system because all such discussions ever did was start cat fights, raise stress, and lead to distrust and disgust among the employees and staff.

After the company’s CEO made his announcement, though, about 1/3 of the employees immediately quit because they would no longer be allowed to push their fascist, left-wing ideology at work.

Basecamp is a company that creates communications systems for other companies that include project management tools, internal communications systems, and email management software.

They are not a company that deals in politics, though, and Basecamp CEO Jason Fried pointed that out as he put the kibosh on stressful political attacks being waged by leftists inside the company.

In a public letter, Fried told employees:

1. No more societal and political discussions on our company Basecamp account. Today’s social and political waters are especially choppy. Sensitivities are at 11, and every discussion remotely related to politics, advocacy, or society at large quickly spins away from pleasant. You shouldn’t have to wonder if staying out of it means you’re complicit, or wading into it means you’re a target. These are difficult enough waters to navigate in life, but significantly more so at work. It’s become too much. It’s a major distraction. It saps our energy, and redirects our dialog towards dark places. It’s not healthy, it hasn’t served us well. And we’re done with it on our company Basecamp account where the work happens. People can take the conversations with willing co-workers to Signal, Whatsapp, or even a personal Basecamp account, but it can’t happen where the work happens anymore. Update: David has shared some more details and more of the internal announcement on his HEY World blog.

That isn’t the only change that Fried and his partner David Hansson made to the company. They also put an end to the employee benefits that read more like political activism instead of benefits.

2. No more paternalistic benefits. For years we’ve offered a fitness benefit, a wellness allowance, a farmer’s market share, and continuing education allowances. They felt good at the time, but we’ve had a change of heart. It’s none of our business what you do outside of work, and it’s not Basecamp’s place to encourage certain behaviors — regardless of good intention. By providing funds for certain things, we’re getting too deep into nudging people’s personal, individual choices. So we’ve ended these benefits, and, as compensation, paid every employee the full cash value of the benefits for this year. In addition, we recently introduced a 10% profit sharing plan to provide direct compensation that people can spend on whatever they’d like, privately, without company involvement or judgement.

Fried and Hansson are right. These benefits were all political in nature and have nothing whatever to do with the reason the company exists; to create and sell their business tools software packages.

Amusingly, all the worst, most far-left, fascist, liberals immediately quit the company. And, Basecamp will quickly learn that they are better off without them.

My guess is that in the coming years, liberals will have caused quite enough turmoil inside American corporations and the companies will begin tom join Basecamp in banning wokeism inside their operations.

After all, wokeism adds absolutely no value to a company and only causes damage to employee relationships. Eventually companies will get sick and tired of the strife and the glad handing will end.

Since these companies are privately run, they have every right to do this, too.

Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine broke out in an anti-mask rant on stage during his Sept. 15 concert in New Jersey.

As the concert came to an end, before the last song, Mustaine took a moment to comment on the coronavirus masking mandates flooding the country.

“I just wanna tell you how great it is. Look around you, guys. Look to your right, look to your left, and look how wonderful this is. We’re all here together. We’re not freaking out, and we’re not yelling at people, ‘Wear your fucking mask,'” he said from the stage.

“Listen, it starts with this kind of a sensation that we build right now,” he continued. “We feel together, we feel like [there’s] strength in numbers. We feel like we are invincible. People will not be able to stop us.”

Then he called the whole thing a “tyranny”:

“Right now, what’s going on is tyranny. This is called tyranny. Look it up when you get home. And tyranny isn’t only in government. Tyranny right now is in the schools and tyranny is in the medical business,” he said.

“We have the power, especially us … heavy metal fans, we have the power to change things,” he concluded.

Megadeth’s soon-to-be-released 16th studio album seems set to carry that theme onward. It will be titled, The Sick, The Dying and The Dead.

One ‘Armed Person’ Arrested During J6 Rally… Turns Out to be Undercover Cop

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday.

Published

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday, but putting a fine point on the face, it turned out he was an undercover cop.

There were only a few arrests during the J6 rally. Indeed, there were thousands of police — both in riot gear and undercover — not to mention thousands of reporters, but very few “dangerous” J^ rally goers.

Not many turned out for the rally because most knew that the corrupt law enforcement services in Washington D.C. was looking to take down anyone, for anything, real or fictional. Few real J6 supporters wanted to be mistreated by a corrupt militarized police presence, so the stayed home.

In fact, President Trump even warned people not to go to this thing. Trump called the whole event a “set up.”

“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

And he was exactly right. To show what a farcical situation the whole thing was, cops in riot gear surrounded and detained a man because he looked to be armed. And “journalists” were there to lap it all up.

Reporter Ford Fischer recorded the confrontation on video:

But then it was discovered that this doofus was an undercover operative, and the riot cops blew his cover:

What a complete joke:
