Mozilla CEO Forced Out: The “Resignation” Heard Round the World
Illinois Family Institute ^ | 4/04/2014 | Laurie Higgins

Posted on 04/04/2014 2:45:41 PM PDT by stars & stripes forever

It shouldn’t have taken the forced resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich for the Left to admit that homosexual activists and their water-carrying ideological servants have no interest in dialogue, diversity, or tolerance. Jack-booted homosexualists demanded that Eich, co-founder of Mozilla and inventor of JavaScript, be fired for his $1,000 donation to the Prop 8 campaign in California six years ago...

But it’s perfectly OK for Jeff Bezos to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars FOR “gay marriage”. But then, we all know liberals/socialists/progressives/communists are hypocrites.

Companies have already fired high-performing employees for being against same-sex marriage, even if they didn't mention it at work. From now on, everyone should know, if you are against same-sex marriage you can be lose your job for that.

Probably more things will be added to the list soon.

This is WAR!!

Freedom of speech is DEAD.
If Repubs gain control of Senate.

1. Impeach Pres.
2. Impeach Vice pres.
3. Impeach ALL judges that have supported “KILLING BABIES.”
4. Impeach ALL judges that have violated the Constitution
(simply understood)
5. Eliminate the 9th circuit court. Reassign all cases to
another court.

Why not have gays just submit a total list, geeter done and like the guy said that’s it! Now go sit in your corner!
Enough is Enough! Every Human being has the right to certain beliefs and the LGBT crowd has crossed the line ruining businesses and personal lives! Maybe the LGBT crowd should join up with the Westboro crowd and become the Ultimate voice for all issues! I for one am sick of the BS! I for one know if I was still in business there would always be a better qualified applicant than any in consideration for a job!

It’s a private business that gets to hire or fire employees as benefits the business. If you’re a liability, you’ll get removed. Doesn’t matter the politics, it’s business. Isn’t that the way the free market is supposed to work?

Note from the article:

“Ok Cupid is owned by media conglomerate IAC/InterActive Corp, which owns 50 brands across 40 countries.

These include other major dating sites, like Match.com, as well as news website the Daily Beast and web properties like Dictionary.com.”

Daily Beast? That’s newsweek.

Seems like something is afoot here, more to this.

This whole incident is so mind-boggling. To just see this kind of thing happen in America. To see the country become so blatantly fascist, so blatantly deviant, that something like this can actually occur.

It makes me literally want to vomit.

The gays have won the “Controversy” war.

Not so long ago, it was being gay that was “controversial.” Above all, companies want to avoid being “controversial.”

Now due to the brainwashing by the media, it’s now being anti-gay that is “controversial.”

More militant homosexuals taking time out from demanding more tolerance for themselves to persecute someone who has different ideas than they do.

"They believed in tolerance, these anointed elites, unless it was tolerance for anything with which they disagreed."

When do we conservative wonks ( I don't have any programming ability ) start a software / freeware suite that is consistent with our values?

Ditto that a search engine?

I just as soon say screw you to all those that don't share my values and that is why I haven't been to a movie since I don't know when.

The culture is crumbling, we don't have to use their crumbling stuff, use our own.

Beck is right create our own culture, consistent with Reagan's Vision which was the Founders etc etc.

Call it something like "Liberty-Link" or "Digital-Liberty"....

“Firefox is no longer on any family machine. Removed it last night . to is now war.

Ditttos I removed all mozilla aps from my 4 systems and sent a note to Mozilla telling them why they are no longer welcome in my house. Religious intolarnce will not be tolerated.

I use to be ambivalent about homosexuals now its time to recognize they have declared war against believers and as such they are the enemy of liberty.

Liberals have redefined ‘tolerance’ to mean, “if you don’t agree with us we’ll force you out of your job’.

I guess the next liberal lever of ‘tolerance’ is they’ll kill us if we don’t agree with them. I know bullies when I see them...

they didn’t win a ‘controversy war’... they’re just mobilized to attack anyone in position that isn’t inline with their agenda

start making a difference.

ANY company that bows to homo pressure, call them up and let them know you, your family, and your friends won’t support their products as long as they support the homo community

also.... stop using the word ‘gay’ to refer to them. it’s part of their propaganda. refer to them as homos. period.

I like Opera and have had it as an alternate browser for several years now. This Mozilla idiocy prompted me to see what else is out there, though, and I found something called “Sleipnir” out of Japan. It’s cross-platform and suitably modern. Plus, I figure that if the software guys in that part of the world are pervy about anything, it’s probably buxom anime girls dressed in school uniforms. Why, that’s nearly normal compared to the pink swastika crowd.

Have a look, it’s on www.fenrir-inc.com.

The IRS leaked a donors’ list to the Gaystapo in CA, which is strictly against the law. Someone should be tried and jailed for this illegal use of tax information by the Left.

Yes you can. Addons for Opera include, AdBlocker, AdBlocker Plus, and Ghostery -all of which are excellent for disabling annoying ads and popups.

I am running it on linux, but it behaves pretty much like resizing a window. In other words, if you slide your mouse pointer up to just below the tabs and then click between the bottom of the tabs and the menubar, you can drag the defining area down to make the main window smaller and the tabs larger in the vertical direction.

Hope that helps...

By the way; love your profile page -at least the Palin and Reagan parts, lol. I am hoping for a Palin-Cruz or Cruz-Palin running!

MUST READ.

Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But let’s not stop here. If we’re serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.

More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet. (Click the link that says, “Download CSV.”) Each row lists the donor’s employer. If you organize the data by company, you can add up the total number of donors and dollars that came from people associated with that company.

...

Why do these bigots still have jobs? Let’s go get them.


Now, the last sentence of the piece (If we’re serious about taking down corporate officers who supported Proposition 8, and boycotting employers who promote them, we'd better get cracking on the rest of the list. Otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks.) indicates pretty clearly that he doesn't really support what he seems to advocate - he's just taking things to their logical extreme to point out that the Left is now the ideology of witchburning. But he shows just how accessible the information on who donated, to what side, and where they happen to work, is ...
