The Criminals Who Run the EPO Are Exploiting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People to Distract From Their Corruption and Crimes

This is not a joke (screenshot below); it's a real article and it's a growing trend in corporate communications

Chevron PR



Summary: The misuse of social justice causes by corporate interests has become grotesque; more people ought to speak about the ramifications and object/work against this misuse, which mostly serves to obscure or distract from the biggest issues

"Feminists for monopolists" (typically very rich men) have become a thing. It's an insult to real, grassroots feminism. The US Army shows us people from all races and colours of the rainbow supporting and participating in bombing people (for imperialism through oppression and fear, assassination and forceful 'pacification'). How is that helpful to these races? Those bombing campaigns are inherently racist; anybody out there wondering why (still) the US never bombs nations that are ethnically similar to the US? Not since World War 2 anyway...



"Those bombing campaigns are inherently racist; anybody out there wondering why (still) the US never bombs nations that are ethnically similar to the US?"Those who pay careful attention to our articles aside from EPO coverage may have noticed the ongoing "IBM and the Bomb" series; the thing about companies like IBM is, they tell us that words like "master" are the problem, not horrifying arsenals with the capability of killing almost 8 billion human beings in less than a year (and most other forms of life, surely all the mammals). It's a nice little distraction in a sense. They get rid of words, not actions. António Campinos speaks of "fostering" (similar to "cultivating") and Benoît Battistelli misused words like "democracy" quite a lot. As if workers are family to them and an autocracy is in fact very liberal; the North Korean regime similarly misuses words.

"The criminals who govern the EPO now hijack "diversity" causes, in effect associating tolerance with corruption."In their typical and notorious "late Friday bullshit" (PR composed by liars and cheats for morale) the EPO's managers said they're "[c]elebrating diversity throughout Europe" (warning: epo.org link). The opening paragraph (mindless PR): "To mark pride celebrations in Amsterdam and reinforce solidarity with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) community, the European Patent Office has once again raised the rainbow flag, this time at its Dutch site in the Hague. Earlier in July, the Office supported Christopher Street Day in Munich by flying the flag at its Isar building headquarters."

Wow! A flag. Didn't the EPO's nepotistic residue also do a photo op with a flag last month, as we noted at the time? The criminals who govern the EPO now hijack "diversity" causes, in effect associating tolerance with corruption.

Wow. Look. We raised a flag. Problem solved! Let's do a press release. Those shallow PR tactics do nothing to actually help anybody (except the publicity stunt's coordinators).

"The EPO continues to grant loads of illegal patents that harm European developers... but hey! They've raised some flag and wrote a few sentences about the raising of that flag."On the same day the EPO also posted (warning: epo.org link) this "news": "The EPO has published the statistics on its recent online user consultation on the EPC and PCT-EPO Guidelines. This was the first ever such public consultation, and it attracted almost 150 responses. About 33% of the comments related to issues in the field of biotechnology, and about 27% to computer-implemented inventions."

Those are illegal software patents being granted in Europe, then advocated and notably/namely promoted by law firms' submissions, with as many as "27% [on] computer-implemented inventions."

The EPO continues to grant loads of illegal patents that harm European developers... but hey! They've raised some flag and wrote a few sentences about the raising of that flag. Progress!
