Silicon Valley CEOs didn't hide their distaste for Donald Trump. Now comes the reckoning

“The way Silicon Valley conducted itself during the election made no sense,” Downes said. “It is one thing to take a political position and support policies. But some of these CEOs went out of their way to antagonize, provoke and mock one of the major party nominees. Now he’s won, and they find themselves in an awkward position.”

The view, of course, is not universally shared in the Valley. Some executives not only have no regrets, but they have vowed to help lead the resistance.

A post-election, company-wide email from Grubhub Chief Executive Matt Maloney vowed to shield employees from Trump’s “nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics.” Maloney called on any staffers who disagreed to “please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here.”

We don't have to worry about water shortages in a 5 year drought here in Cali because we have enough of these to drown! Threatening people's jobs because of political affiliations is draconian and Totalitarian. I'd be looking for another job if I worked for any of them. It has nothing to do with job performance. It's all to do with that mental disease.

And that day will come.  One or two might find work somewhere in the Ministry of Truth but once that's in place, most won't be needed

That was meant to be an observation on the direction we're headed, not support for the idea :)
