The newly elected CEO and co-founder of Mozilla - the maker of the Firefox web browser - was forced into resignation today after activists pressured the company over his donation to a political campaign that opposed same-sex marriage.
Brendan Eich was forced into resigning from the company he co-founded just one month into his new role as CEO. In 2008 Eich donated $1000 to the campaign for California Proposition 8 and was widely chastised by the left press and social media. After his recent appointment as CEO his vilification was reawakened and he came under pressure from employees, press, social media and even other companies. The online dating service OKCupid even blocking users of the Firefox web browser from their site. He has now been forced to resign from his own company entirely for his use of democratic methods to voice his political (and possibly religious) beliefs.

When you see a car with “Coexist”, “Tolerance”, “Diversity”, bumper stickers, you know you’re looking at the exact opposite. You’re seeing quite the unsavory character.
Hilariously, they’re using the ‘free market’ as an excuse for their fascism.
..and Mozilla tweeting furiously disclaiming any influence on or involvement in his decision: ‘He just resigned’ etc.
A multimillion dollar firm just lets its CEO fly the coop?
If the roles had been reversed i.e. he was hounded out for SUPPORTING gay marriage there’s no way in hell this would have happened.
You forgot about the ones with the “=” stickers on them. I thought at first they meant they had been captains in the Army or something. LOL!
Roger that. Add a little head shake to it too for good measure.
There are 2 kinds of “=” signs. One is dark blue and yellow I think. Any idea of the difference? Is one for black and white gays? Guy and a dog?
Yeah--The CEO's at the companies where I used to work really lived in fear of what I thought about their private lives.
Amazing the backlash if you oppose same sex marriage. I guess I would be doomed because I oppose same sex marriage. I have no objections to same sex unions or whatever, I just think changing the definition of marriage to suit a certain segment of the population is wrong and will lead to errors in future statistical data reporting or more confusion by creating many new classes of “marriage”. Now that the door is open to changing the definition, I expect to see future classifications like: human-animal marriage, group marriage, father-daughter marriage, mother-son, etc. Welcome to the anything goes world.
Appeasement will just embolden the thugs. Unequivocal support for the homosexual agenda is becoming the litmus test for anyone in public life. If you don’t toe the party line, whether you are a professor, clergy, executive, media, politician - the homo-Nazis will call for your head.
He donated $1000! I’m boycotting Mozilla - is Firefox their only product? It stinks/ never use it!
I use it as a training exercise for my kids and tell them it makes life easier when the morons of the world identify themselves to the rest of us.
I’ve only seen the blue background with the gold “=” on them. I guess they could have been lieutenants in the Navy. :>}
The problem with boycotting Mozilla is that the other browsers are undoubtedly made by companies that are every bit as liberal and intolerant. Opera now uses Google Chrome as its base. Does anyone believe Google is conservative? Or MS?
I just sent them an email with my intention to uninstall and move to Opera or Torch and why I am. I told them I hope they reap what they sow and good luck pandering to terrorists.
I hope that people are in tune enough to give them their anti-Chick-fil-A moment and drop them and let them know why.
I’m with you...plus no one ever talks much about the diseases that segment causes by their behavior...unless they want $$$ for an AIDS foundation etc.
Another item on the do mot buy list.
Happy to say that uninstalled Mozilla Foxfire today.
I have been an Opera user since 2001.
I have never disliked Firefox until today. I will never use it but I never did.
Thanks Mozilla for giving me a reason to hate your guts.
I am the same way. I use both IE an Opera, and have never been a big FF fan.
Damned good idea! I’m getting rid of it.
Did load it and just deleted it. It’s a piece of crap. I would
like to dump FireFox but it does what I want it to just
like I want it to.
That Opera is a total piece of crap, it does what it wants,
sticks you with crap you don’t want and you cant get rid
of things you don”t like.
I just uninstalled Firefox. I’ll have nothing to do with these liberal fascists.
The Brownshirts are here. And well-named.
Incompetent headline alert!
