A progressive organization called Civis Analytics fired a data analyst because he did the job that he was hired to do


Stop Firing the Innocent

June 27, 2020

David Shor, for example, was until recently a data analyst at a progressive consulting firm, Civis Analytics. (Emerson Collective, the majority owner of The Atlantic, is an investor in Civis Analytics.)  Shor’s job was to think about how Democrats can win elections. When Omar Wasow, a professor at Princeton, published a paper in the country’s most prestigious political-science journal arguing that nonviolent civil-rights protests had, in the 1960s, been more politically effective than violent ones, Shor tweeted a simple summary of it to his followers.


Because the tweet coincided with the first mass protests over the killing of George Floyd, it generated some pushback. After a progressive activist accused Shor of “concern trolling for the purposes of increasing democratic turnout,” a number of people on Twitter demanded that he lose his job. Less than a week after he tweeted the findings of Wasow, who is black, Civis’s senior leadership, which is predominantly white, fired Shor.

Democrats used to be in favor of universal education and universal employment. But now with “cancel culture,” Democrats are against those things. And I’m guessing that it’s only a matter of time until Democrats start being against the universal health care that they currently claim to support.

Until recently, Democrats were in favor of universal education and universal employment.

However, with the current movement known as “cancel culture,” Democrats are now against both of those things.

After a high school student named Mimi Groves was accepted to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, a public university which was her #1 choice for college, the college later asked her not to attend, because one of her high school classmates named Jimmy Galligan sent the college a video of a private Snapchat conversation from three years earlier, where Groves had said to her friends, “I can drive [racial slur].”

The New York Times praised Galligan for sending the video to the college.

Public colleges used to be about universal education. That is clearly no longer the case.

A data analyst named David Shor was fired from his job at Civis Analytics because he tweeted a link to a study by a Princeton professor which said that peaceful protesting was more effective than violent rioting.

Democrats used to say they supported universal education and universal employment.

However, the two above examples prove that Democrats are now against universal education and universal employment.

Democrats also say they support universal health care.

But based on those two above examples, I’m guessing that it’s only a matter of time until Democrats start being against universal health care too.
