Poor choices in this article

It's hard not to conclude that this article is attempting to demonstrate that Damore is a terrible person because all of these other terrible people have used his memo to spout bile.

If Damore has done something stupid and offensive, it doesn't make it better by compiling a list of other stupid and offensive views. If he hasn't, attempting to pillory him by associating his views with other more stupid and offensive ones is character assassination. If none of those views are stupid and offensive, but just different to your own, then you're going to look bigoted.

Any news item of any appreciable size sets the fringes of the internet off, so an article dedicated to the inevitable doesn't enlighten us, improve the situation or reduce the existence of those fringes.
