It's also unfortunate that there are people who want to leftify and alt-rightify everything int he world, including this guy's predicament. I'm quite tired of hearing the ideological extreme views get pontificated over and over again, especially when they do nothing to get to the facts of the situation.
Rather than reading leftwing or rightwing interpretations of what the guy intended to do, why not listen to the guy himself, and get the direct scoop without having someone else filter the news for you? Here's an interview with James Damore where he speaks his heart. Listen to what he has to say and decide for yourself, rather than just repeating what you read somewhere. It's a long video. You'll need 90 minutes to watch it. Chances are most people would rather read an opinionated 5 minute summary from their favorite politically biased news outlet.
Disclaimer: I have no idea who "The Rubin Report" is and I have no political affiliation, but I think the interviewer did a pretty good job of keeping his views out of the interview and just letting Damore speak his mind.
