Skip to comments.Mozilla thoughtcrime, IRS corruption, and the devaluation of marriage

We've had a few nasty culture clashes of late, but this one takes the cake. Eich was quite literally persecuted for a thoughtcrime. He didn't say something that the gay marriage crowd found offensive, as with the "Duck Dynasty" flap. He didn't get involved with organizations that actively promoted traditional marriage, like the Chick-Fil-A guy. By all accounts, he rarely discussed the issue in public, and never at work, citing Mozilla's policies against such social and political discussions in the office. Another officer of the company said she had no idea he was a traditional marriage supporter until the media broke stories about his thousand-dollar donation in 2012.
And how did the media find out about it? A post at First Things links the story to one of the most infamous cases of IRS corruption:
Why, then, the ruckus? Amazingly enough, it is entirely due to the fact that Eich made a $1,000 donation to the campaign urging a yes vote on Californias Proposition 8. When this fact first came to light in 2012, after the Internal Revenue Service leaked a copy of the National Organization for Marriages 2008 tax return to a gay-advocacy group, Eich, who was then CTO of Mozilla, published a post on his personal blog stating that his donation was not motivated by any sort of animosity towards gays or lesbians&helllip;

So, to sum up: the LGWTFBBQ bunch hounded this guy out of his job because the IRS illegally leaked to the media the donation activities of pretty-much-exclusively conservative persons.
Well....the solution is simple.
When you believe in something controversial.....you drag $1,000 out of the bank, put the name of some NBC journalist, a CBS news guy, or some CNN dimwit as the person donating it. And mail it in.
When these guys do their search and find the name listed...they will get all upset and demand these guys get fired. After a couple hundred get fired...someone will say that there’s something wrong here and it’s wrong to list the address.
So much for freedom of speech.
Hopefully when the pendulum swings back it will take a bunch of the gaystapo out.
Isn’t there some sort of law about using illegally obtained stuff or being caught with illegally obtained stuff?
This really is massive religious-type discrimination.
On the secular side no one is supposed to discriminate or harass people based on sexual orientation. It is time to make them eat their own PC-thoughts on what that means!
Sexual orientation thought crimes and persecution are not just the purview of the LBGT. If they can contribute to “their cause,” straight people can contribute to “our cause.”
If the CEO has/had fired someone due to sexual orientation they might have a case. But in the few articles I’ve read, no one at the company even knew he was a traditional marriage supporter.
When 03% control the press and the 'politically correct'
then you realize what a desperate condition this Nation is in !
The last I knew , the rights of the minority were protected by 'free speech' , .. not that they controlled free speech of others !!
There seems to be no solution but to meet the militancy of the left with more militancy from the right and the left will revel in the resulting chaos. Meanwhile, Mozilla should face severe market punishment for caving to the gaystapo.
So the IRS not only persecutes the enemies of the administration, it releases personal and confidential information to hurt them.
This is criminal.
And here I thought the left claim the same-sex marriage law doesn’t punish normal marriage supporters. So discrimination against Christians and treating them as 2nd class citizen is okay
I'm just trying to save lives with my stance on same-sex marriage. The Federal Govt's own CDC warns about the health hazards of MSM (men having sex with men.) Why would you or anyone ignore the Federal Govt's warning and promote acts that could kill people?
Think he could have put up more of a fight? It kind of looks like he just rolled over.
The “list” you’re referring to is not supposed to be public. It’s internal IRS records.
What was the CEO’s crime? He supported a pro-marriage ballot measure that was passed by the majority of California voters. Those who were once the promoters of tolerance and diversity have now become the haters, the persecutors, and McCarthyites. They are now asking the question: “Do you NOW. . or have you EVER . . supported traditional marriage?”
The Oregonian published an article today pointing and targeting the traditional marriage views of a new business owner. The gaystopo is alive and well.
This is precisely why We, the People, must take back the power which Washington and the federal bureaucracy have stolen from us. Only once the alphabet agencies are eliminated or returned to their constitutional constraints will we again have Liberty.

Sometimes one has to fight for it. He didn’t.
I like a challenge, I’m guessing that refers to a barbecue attended by lesbians, “gay” men, transgenders and assorted unidentifiables or what the f-—s. Is that anywhere close?
....Because they know a HUGH wave midterm election is coming up in November. They are in “panic mode”.
At the rate they are adding letters, they are going to run out of letters in about five years.
