TOP 5 CRACKDOWNS ON CONSERVATIVES' INTERNET FREE SPEECH
Breitbart ^ | April 4, 2014 | By Ben Shapiro

Posted on 04/04/2014 7:48:45 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

On Thursday, CEO Brendan Eich of Mozilla was forced out of his job thanks to his $1,000 donation to the Proposition 8 pro-traditional marriage effort in California in 2008. At that point, he held the exact same position as Barack Obama on traditional marriage. Now, that position has soured in the nostrils of the militant left, which seeks to ruin the lives of those with whom it disagrees.

I read a great suggestion today:

lets put outside all these tech companies (apple, google, etc)

"homos and facists need only apply".

I live in silicon valley and the backlash is surprisingly supportive of Eich.

Mozilla’s cave-in to the militants over at OKCupid, a dating site that labeled Eich one of its “enemies” thanks to his position, represents just the latest assault on conservatives in the online space. It’s not illegal for Mozilla to dump Eich nor for OKCupid to call for that ouster – nor should it be – but it is certainly wrong, and in violation of basic principles of free speech that the internet is supposed to guarantee. It is purely Orwellian that Mozilla’s response to Eich’s resignation suggested that ensuring “equality and free speech” led to that resignation.

Unfortunately, such crackdowns on free speech principles have become all too common among members of the leftist online community. Here are the top five examples:

Someone please ask me again why we operate our own servers instead of running on google cloud or depend on advertisers for our operating revenue... or file with the IRS for 501c non-profit status, etc.

Thank God for our FReepers!!

I had a YouTube channel to which I uploaded a non-narrated video that simply documented normal school days in parts of Germany that immigrants of a certain faith disproportionately chose to live in.

Kids not of that faith are very routinely beaten up —their lives are utter hell. They are beaten, stolen from, screamed at on a daily basis.

They shut down my channel for that video —they were very casual about it.

Inclusive/tolerant = total lies.
