The “alt-right” apparently now includes Ben Shapiro and Eric Weinstein, a managing director at Theil Capital:
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro dubbed Googles managers corporate fascists and the tech giant a leftist monopoly and, in one of several tweets about the issue, suggested Damore should immediately declare himself a woman and sue Google for discrimination based on gender stereotypes.
Eric Weinstein, managing director of Peter Theils investment firm Thiel Capital, wrote a widely shared tweet to Google asking the company to stop teaching my girl that her path to financial freedom lies not in coding but in complaining to HR.
Shapiro, as we all know, has been a target of the alt-right for months:
"I have the award for most hated Jew of 2016. It's a statue of a frog with a picture of a gas chamber." –@benshapiro
