A Cultural Marxist Attack on a Silicon Valley Board Room: Bonderman Quits Uber Board Following “Joke” He Made, by Robert Wenzel.
David Bonderman, founder of the private equity group TPG, has quit the board of Uber after making a light-hearted comment at a company meeting, the comment is being described by MSM as a “joke.”
Board member Arianna Huffington was telling Uber staff yesterday that research showed boards with one female director were more likely to appoint a second female, Bonderman interjected: “Actually what it shows is that it’s much more likely to be more talking.” …
Bonderman was actually, in a light-hearted manner, referring to some actual scientific studies when he made his comment about females. Dr. Mia Lundin, an OBGYN, has written: “The female hormone estrogen heightens the production of oxytocin, which enhances relaxation, reduces fearfulness, and decreases stress responses. Women instinctively seek emotional support in the face of “danger.” Psychologist Dr. Shelley Taylor and her UCLA colleagues discovered that females were more likely to deal with stress by “tending and befriending;” that is, nurturing those around them and reaching out to others. We actually increase our oxoytocin levels and experience renewed balance and calm when we socialize and talk with our dear ones.”
But MSM, infected with Cultural Marxist thinking, would have none of it. The knives came out immediately after Bonderman’s comment.
The same day he made the comment, Bonderman emailed Uber employees to apologize — and later announced he was resigning from the board.
Bonderman is a billionaire. He didn’t get that way by wasting time considering the sex or ethnic background of the people he hired. He most assuredly hired the people who could make him the most money.
He was making a pretty sound and subtle observation in a light-hearted manner with his comment: Why make hiring practices or applicant interview panels based on gender or ethnic background rather than just on competence?
When it comes down to it, cultural Marxism is about control. CMs want to rip down everything that they don’t control and replace it with their surrogates who will march the world away from free exchange and toward the centrally planned world of the CMs. Such a march has never ended well for millions in places like the Soviet Union and in Mao’s China.
