There seems to be no end to the nuisance attached with people’s sentiments about the US President-elect Donald Trump. “Martyrs” are popping up here and there and sometimes I wonder if all of this is orchestrated. For example, an Oracle executive has publicly resigned in protest because Oracle CEO, Safra Catz has joined Donald Trump’s transition team. I’m pretty sure George Polisner, the protesting and quitting employee, will be gladly lapped up by one of the scores of tech companies trying to prove their liberal credentials by showing how much they loathe Donald Trump. He didn’t throw away his career to the wind just to make a political point. There is a big chance that he quit because he wasn’t comfortable with a woman CEO. Expect this circus to go on for a long time.
A big problem with the so-called liberals (they are far from being truly liberal, and hence, “so-called”) is that they don’t know when to stop. The elections in the US are over. The mandate has been cast. The president for the next four years has been elected. No matter how much you hate him, Trump is going to get all Trumpy in the White House for the next four years and for all you know, for the next eight years. Instead of crying like babies, people should brace up and try to come up with ways to counter him in case he does something really unpopular and anti-people. Simply showing him how much you hate him simply pleases him and gets him more support from even those who are standing at the periphery.
The Oracle CEO didn’t just attend the recent meeting Trump had with technology leaders, she openly supports him. Before accepting the position, Catz had said, “I plan to tell the president-elect that we are with him and will help in any way we can. If he can reform the tax code, reduce regulation and negotiate better trade deals, the US technology industry will be stronger and more competitive than ever.”
Even when it came to be known that Peter Thiel supported Donald Trump he was widely attacked by his peers.
