Liberal hires only "native English speakers"

Melinda Byerley, the founder of TimeShare CMO ("Grow Like A Unicorn. Spend Like A Bootstrapper") is very liberal San Franciscan. And yet she brags about hiring only "Native English speakers."

I wonder if that is legal?

Melinda Byerley brags about her expertise on social media, and certainly she has a flair for grabbing attention.

This is from a woman who brags about her prowess in social media in promoting her company. Indeed, she is a professional tweeter.

Now a few people on twitter are not quite pleased with Melinda Byerley. I mean writing off thirty states like that does not seem a healthy way for a unicorn to grow, even if you are bootstrappping.

But she has an MBA from Cornell, so maybe she knows what she is saying.

From her "about" page at her company's web site:
After 14 years in Silicon Valley, most recently as a founder myself of a technology company, I know what you are going through: sleepless nights, anxiety about hiring and financing, the general feeling of not knowing what you don't know.  Whether it's digging into your Google Analytics code to fix a problem, creating a dashboard that actually helps your business, or thinking big picture about how to expand your markets and creatively drive acquisition; I've done it all, hands on. I can pick up the phone and talk to insiders at every major social media and marketing platform to get instant advice for your business. I've hand picked and trained a team of experts, all located in the United States and native English speakers, to execute the work you need, fast.  
Native English speakers.

Must be San Francisco Liberal Code for white American people.

You know, from that shithole for stupid people.

Still, it sounds a little xenophobic to me.

Also racist.

Legal immigrants need not apply.

Naturalized citizens need not apply either, unless they are from Australia, Canada or the United Kingdom. (Not too sure about the Aussies, either.)

What galls her is she was beaten by stupid people in shitholes who are inferior to her and her fellow Cornell MBAs. We figured an easier way to get jobs without moving to those No Shit holes where marketers talk about bootstrapping unicorns.

We elected President Trump.

And when we come across an occasional Melinda Byerley and her "native English speakers" who want to talk trash, let us revel in their misery.

We won. They are not getting over it. Don't respond.

Just enjoy the hysteria.

UPDATE: Byerley just tweeted and made her pinned tweet this:

@@@

Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.

It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.

  1. I would encourage Ms. Byerley to stay right where she is. We rather like it out here without her, and couldn't bear to see her suffer in our midst.

      So he loaded up his truck and he moved to Hedgesville

  2. You left out the Kiwis, Don, They are native English speakers, too. The Ozzies can likely translate most Kiwi terms.

    Melinda sure does think highly of herself. Too highly. Much too highly.

  6. This firm belief by liberals that they're smarter than everyone else, more sensitive, more spiritual, etc... it approaches the bizarre. Liberals tend to have what we used to call SPD - Self Perception Disorder.

  9. She's a Pseudointellectual narcissistic bigot.
    she lives in a city that reeks of human waste in the streets, encourages perversion and paedophilia, is becoming a child-free zone, and she only hires white native english speakers...Cognitive Dissonance much?

    What a waste of DNA this "lady" is.

  10. 35 years hi-tech / 30 years SF...

    Firstly she is not a San Franciscan, she seems to be from a DC suburb in VA. She sounds like the classic Ten Year Tourist. People who are just passing through SF with absolutely no roots or engagment with the locals. Gone in 10 years to somewhere else. Pretty much every asshole I've run into in SF over the last 30 years was a Ten Year Tourist. The locals (and natives) are some of the nicest people I've met. Every screwy story out of SF almost always involves a Ten Year Tourist.

    Although looking at her work profile I strongly suspect that she does not even live in SF. The City. People like that may swan around SOMA and Upper Market but usually go home to there crummy little apartment in Oakland or Daly City. Or further afield. Back in the '90's she might have been able to afford Noe Valley. But not anymore....

    3. No. 'Ere she attended Cornell, she graduated from Illinois Wesleyan College in Bloomington, Ill. Her employment history prior to 2001 is not included on her LinkedIn, but her schooling was impractical (a degree in theatre), so I'd wager she was a schoolteacher during the years running from 1991 to 2000 (less likely, she lists no teaching certificate) or she had a series of wage jobs or talked herself into something in the business world. Not sure where she went to high school, but she attended junior high school in Rockford, Iowa. Rockford, Iowa is a village in the northernmost part of the state, that part which is more in the Minneapolis sphere of influence than the Chicago sphere. The nearest city is Waterloo. She appears to have lived around Rockford, Illinois ca. 1992 before decamping to the NYC suburbs and exurbs, where she appears to have lived during the period running from 1993-96 and perhaps after (in Westchester, in Middlesex County, NJ, and in Stamford, Ct. I'm not seeing a connection to northern Virginia or any other part of greater Washington.

    4. Her residences during the period running from 1991 to 1996 were all in suburban towns.

  12. A problem already developing in Texas and Nevada is people like her moving out of California and to these other states because of high costs and backbreaking regulations, but bringing their desire for government paying for everything that caused the problems in California. I hope nearly all of the people like her in the coastal enclaves feel like she does, and stay right there. We got away.

    1. Your "high costs and backbreaking regulations" weren't here in California until Texans and Nevadans moved in. Now your cousins are moving back home. Stop your whining and welcome your fellow locusts.

      P.S. Texas built Austin into what it is today while Texas had a net outflow to California. And without Californians, Winnemucca or maybe Tonopah would be Nevada's largest city. Vegas would be no more than a poorly lit gas station along a desert dirt road, Californians built Hoover Dam.

    2. If the regulatory burden is from Texan imports it should be easy to reverse the trend when they are gone. I bet it will happen faster if you hold your breath until it begins. Start now.

  14. If she doesn't want to live in a shithole full of stupid people, what's she doing in San Francisco. She must lack education or something.

  15. In San Francisco they legally crap in the street so 'shithole' is not metaphorical.

    1. "No educated person wants to live in a shithole with stupid people," says Ms. SmarterThanYouAre.

      That's exactly why I don't live in San Francisco. Here's a link to the SF Poop Map:

      Maybe someone can identify which brown pile is where Nancy Pelosi lives, or Dianne Feinstein, or Babbling Boxer. It's probably where it's piled highest and deepest, but maybe it's where the odor is most potent; hard to say, isn't it?

    2. SF needs to "nationalize" extra bedrooms in homes and apartments to provide housing for the homeless. Stat with the biggest homes in the nicest areas where the level of caring is highest.

  17. A very good example of what not to do. First dishonest hack Surber gets the word "only" (there is no indication of that in her quote). Then dishonest hack Glenn Reynolds links to it.

    2. Word "only" was in headline. Phrase "Legal immigrants need not apply" was in your article.

      What she actually said is "I've hand picked and trained a team of experts, all located in the United States and native English speakers". Key word for you is "a team". You generalized from one case to every case, a rookie logic error.

      And there is a good way to get me not to point out your flawed reasoning. It's called "not using flawed reasoning". Try it sometimes.

  18. What a thoroughly nasty, vicious woman. And no, I can do without her ilk moving into my little patch of paradise flyover country ... in a medium-large city where we have a 24-hour classical music station, a mayor who is a woman of color, and weekly farmer's markets all across town where you can get all the locally-grown organic stuff you can stuff into your face. I dunno about getting Thai take-out 24 hours a day -- but there is a breakfast taco joint about every block on all the major roads, so we have that - and some of them are 24-hours a day.
    So, Melinda Byerley -- tell your friends not to move here. We don't really need your bigoted kind in our city.

  21. She acts like she'd grace our presence if only we would become "progressive" (higher taxes, more government ineptitude and inefficiency, cater to leftist victim/gender/identity groups, etc.). I'd do damn near anything to keep people like her out; there's no place in my town for know-it-all judgmental bigots like her (who also want to eff up everybody else's standard of living).

  22. I was reading Her Highness' first paragraph and remembered my old home town, certainly one She would never deign to to business with because of the violent nature of the misogynistic uneducated locals who reside there. I'm talking about the People's Republic of Oakland. Oakland could probably use some of the Call Centers, Factories and Development she described. But she won't consider it because she is a racist who won't even consider helping the minorities who reside there.

  23. Personally I hope people like that arrogant bitch Byerley stay in SF and leave us the hell alone.

    Her "industry" pays jack shit anyway. When I was working in economic development for our town, we turned down friggin' call centers. Their programmers and developers are the only ones who make real money and they distort that market by importing foreigners and exporting the work. Like Apple, most of the manufacturing is not done on the West Coast, but in China and other Third World hellholes.

  24. Not only is it legal, it is REQUIRED, to discriminate against white people, men, heterosexuals, Christians and Americans.

    Discriminating in favor of any of the above, however, is highly illegal.
