The first area to focus on is diversity. This has become a dogma in the tech world, and despite the fact that tech is one of the most meritocratic industries in the world, there are constant efforts to promote diversity at the expense of fairness, merit and competency. Examples:

USC's Interactive Media & Games Division cancels all-star panel that included top-tier game developers who were invited to share their experiences with students. Why? Because there were no women on the panel.
https://t.co/6vXSMt6B9N
ElectronConf is a conf which chooses presenters based on blind auditions; the identity, gender, and race of the speaker is not known to the selection team. The results of that merit-based approach was an all-male panel. So they cancelled the conference. https://t.co/TVSQRbnfTP
Apple's head of diversity (a black woman) got in trouble for promoting a vision of diversity that is at odds with contemporary progressive dogma. (She left the company shortly after this incident.)
https://t.co/avEPxSGC3y
Also in the name of diversity, there is unabashed discrimination against men (especially white men) in tech, in both hiring policies and in other arenas. One such example is this, a developer workshop that specifically excluded men: https://t.co/N0SkH4hR35
The creator of the hit video game Assassin's Creed stated his position on hiring developers: "If the candidate has a dick, he’s not hired."
https://t.co/x0Cu1v9bQb
Of course, the biggest story showcasing SJW's influence in regards to the tech world is Google's firing of @JamesADamore, who shared a few scientifically based, reasonable ideas about how to improve diversity which disagreed with the progressive dogma. https://t.co/XkTYjsfPZQ
Another area that has seen inroads by SJWs is insistence on "Codes of Conduct" (CoC) rules in open source projects. While they sound fine in theory, the reality is that it lets certain activists police the kind of people who are involved in a project. https://t.co/UWOlb6AIiw
This CoC trend has disturbed so many people, it's even pushed some top developers to leave projects that they have been heavily involved with from the very beginning.
https://t.co/aCrZR20eac.
Here's a related controversy, where some Linux developers are threatening to pull their code from Linux due to objections to a CoC (scroll down to "The Controversy").
https://t.co/JrdVMPClSq
More on the Linux Code of Conduct controversy here: https://t.co/H4lNs8EYjc
A controversy over the Code of Conduct and accepting pull requests from people of color erupted on the Django project: https://t.co/u2MULvY7x9
An example of how Codes of Conduct are used to enforce ideology: GitHub removed a repository because the word "retard" was used: https://t.co/8KaLqMlhi3
SJWs have often tried to get people dismissed from speaking engagements at conferences. When that doesn't work, they try to get the whole conference shut down. Here's one example where they tried to get a speaker booted, labeling him a misogynist: https://t.co/rQWojetz4g
They also tried to shut down LambdaConf because they didn't approve of a speaker's politics (his talk wasn't going to be about politics, purely technical topics). When the conf organizers didn't agree to boot him, they went after the conference itself:
https://t.co/wwMVoNbxnB
They had actually succeeded the year before in doing the same thing to him at a different conference:
https://t.co/CmnyFVCv3g
Another area of influence is in how games are designed, with SJWs not approving of sexual imagery in games. A character in Overwatch had to be modified due to complaints that she was too sexualized:
https://t.co/EtKinifoTH
A trivial example, but still illustrative of how the tech world is so sensitive to SJ concerns: Google actually changed the name of a new file compression format - the .bro format (short for 'Brotli') - because of complaints that it was offensive:
https://t.co/c1sU6drpMn
Another trivial, but instructive example: Apple and Adobe come under heavy criticism for doing an image manipulation demo at a conference that changed a picture of a woman to have a smile. https://t.co/UzN5yHjSyu
A more serious example: Two developers at a conference sharing a private joke about "dongles" end up being fired after a woman overhears them and complains:
https://t.co/qMOiVzMaLm
Here's a story of a woman who faced the wrath of feminists for disagreeing about how best to help young girls who want to learn to code. She wanted to teach them programming, they wanted to teach the girls gender politics. https://t.co/LIhwWxLn0J
We can also see just how far reaching SJWs influence in tech are from the fact that high level decision making bodies are supporting their nonsense: https://t.co/CjOpCEZ20a
Another idiotic grant supporting SJW nonsense: https://t.co/EST1l4moE7
There is also the very concerning issue of social media companies censoring and demonetizing figures who are saying things that go against the progressive dogma. @joerogan discussed that here: https://t.co/QOb0SzQ8mr
Some more examples of tech companies blacklisting those who disagree with progressive ideas: https://t.co/czPmXjZKIp
An ad supporting a pro-life candidate was banned on Facebook: https://t.co/gfuOQaYbEH
Discussion with sex researcher demonetized: https://t.co/vnv0GPpWtA
Here's another noteworthy case: a leading Drupal developer was kicked out of that community due to people discovering that he has some weird sexual kinks, even though not a single person within the community ever reported any misconduct from him. https://t.co/9L4fXJSRRz
Underlying so much of this is the constant demonization of men in tech (it's actually an underlying thread within all SJ ideology, not just here). Here's a story of an active campaign to smear a tech luminary bec he doesn't conform to contemporary norms. https://t.co/88vzytWFdc
Regarding how social media companies have taken the side of SJWs in the culture war, @marcorandazza at @Popehat spelled this out very clearly 3 years ago. It's only gotten worse since, IMHO. https://t.co/JtanHbJSGQ
On a lighter note, check out this award granted to Google for all the resources they've put into promoting diversity. https://t.co/ap0cWJcgpl
Reader responded to this thread saying that hes now required 2 comment his code with gender neutral pronouns. Reminded me of this: tech reporter replaces industry standard term "man-in-the-middle attack" with more inclusive "person-in-the-middle". https://t.co/aimXB5Npd8
I'm reluctant to take anything related to emoji seriously, but even that topic shows the influence of social justice trends, as there are constant efforts to make emoji that are more diverse and inclusive. Consider the issue of skin colors in emoji: https://t.co/bRlLM8ZXC2
And then there's this effort at inclusivity, which may or may not be a joke. I'm really not sure. Poe's Law applies. https://t.co/ikvVYgcbWa
And apparently, some women are really upset that the women's shoe emoji, and others depicting women's clothes, are totally sexist. https://t.co/xhorAY60ID
Some more examples of anti-male sentiment openly expressed at a tech conference a few months ago: https://t.co/2NqCe8lUo5
Another blatant demonstration of anti-white/male prejudice expressed by a prominent software developer. https://t.co/eJTCU4bEfZ
That respected developer also railed against an author of a programming book because the subtitle of the book had the word "craftsman" in it. https://t.co/GSUR5LRjzF

Funny, before the election I recall lefties muttering the caravan must have been a Trump setup because it made the open borders crowd look so bad. Why would the pro-migrant crowd engineer a crisis that played into Trump's hands? THIS is why. THESE are the "optics" they wanted.


This media manipulation effort was inspired by the success of the "kids in cages" freakout, a 100% Stalinist propaganda drive that required people to forget about Obama putting migrant children in cells. It worked, so now they want pics of Trump "gassing children on the border."

There's a heavy air of Pallywood around the whole thing as well. If the Palestinians can stage huge theatrical performances of victimhood with the willing cooperation of Western media, why shouldn't the migrant caravan organizers expect the same?

It's business as usual for Anarchy, Inc. - the worldwide shredding of national sovereignty to increase the power of transnational organizations and left-wing ideology. Many in the media are true believers. Others just cannot resist the narrative of "change" and "social justice."

The product sold by Anarchy, Inc. is victimhood. It always boils down to the same formula: once the existing order can be painted as oppressors and children as their victims, chaos wins and order loses. Look at the lefties shrieking in unison about "Trump gassing children" today.
