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.

The Obama Campaign has learned the lessons of history from Joseph Goebbels.(Joseph Goebbels was a leading member of the German National Socialist Party and Propaganda Minister in Adolf Hitler’s government from 1933 to 1945)
And the Obama Campaign is exercizing the fascism they so dearly covet. We must strike back at them, and hard.
An excerpt ( sound familiar?).
7. Joseph Goebbels: ‘Man the Beast’
From Practitioners And Technicians Of Totalitarian Rule Part 2 of ‘The Face Of The Third Reich’ (1999)
I want to be a hero! Joseph Goebbels
A revolutionary must be able to do everything! Joseph Goebbels
Propaganda was the genius of National Socialism. Not only did it owe to propaganda its most important successes; propaganda was also its one and only original contribution to the conditions for its rise and was always more than a mere instrument of power: propaganda was part of its essence. What National Socialism meant is far less easily grasped from the contradictory and nebulous conglomerate of its philosophy than from the nature of its propagandist stage management. Carrying it to an extreme, one might say that National Socialism was propaganda masquerading as ideology, that is to say, a will to power which formed its ideological theorems according to the maximum psychological advantage to be derived at any given moment, and drew its postulates from the moods and impulses of the masses, in the sensing of which it was abnormally gifted. In view of its capacity for mediumistic communication with the ‘mind’ of the masses, it seemed not to require any real idea, such as had served to gather and hold together every other mass movement in history. Resentments, feelings of protest of the day and the hour, as well as that mechanical attachment which arises from the mere activation of social forces, replaced the integrative effect of an idea, in conjunction with a gift of handling crowds that made use of every technique of psychological manipulation. The majority of the ideological elements absorbed into National Socialism were nothing but material, assessed at varying degrees of effectiveness, for a ceaseless pyrotechnical display of propagandist agitation. Flags, Sieg Heils, fanfares, marching columns banners and domes of searchlights the whole arsenal of stimulants, developed with inventive ingenuity, for exciting public ecstasy was ultimately intended to bring about the individual’s self-annulment, a permanent state of mindlessness, with the aim of rendering first the party adherents and later a whole nation totally amenable to the leaders’ claim to power. The relative status of ideology and propaganda is shown more clearly than anywhere in that phraseology employed by numerous contemporaries that referred to National Socialism as ‘experience’, a term that tacitly outlawed any cognitive or critical approach. In fact this ideology was literally indisputable and evaded all objective analysis by retreating into the unimpeachable realms of pseudo-religious feelings, where the Fuhrer reigned in solitary metaphysical monumentality. To be sure, this flight into the irrational, into regions where politics became a matter of faith, of Weltanschauun, answered a vehement need of the disoriented masses; nevertheless, there was a purposeful Machiavellian guidance behind the direction and forms it took, so that on closer inspection the apparently elemental demand proves to be the planned and repeatedly re-awakened irrationalism to which the modern totalitarian social religions owe their support and their existence.

Are we forgetting what happened to Free Dominion?
The Leftists desperately want that to happen to us.
See My Tagline.
Revolt is coming.
Take confort, “Operation American Spring” is coming on May 16, 2014 to D.C.
I see an excellent opportunity to set up another major Christian Conservative search engine to knock the Nazis on their cans.
The internet held great promise, but it seems all major portals are now controlled by “progressives” or “libertarians”

Compromising with bad policy is like adding just a little sewage to your drinking water. - JimRed
The list of anti-prop 8 donors is out on the LA Times site as well.
Conservatives should be actively trolling through that list .
....” many conservatives have complained of their accounts being suspended from Twitter.....Thats not a rumor, Ive had my account suspended for no reason”.....
Me too. I no longer tweet...and didn’t very long before I was booted, one week I think. Instead I will investigate what’s being said...find the facts as close as possible... and bring them here to FR for discussion.
Keep up the good fight Jim! I have been here for 15 years and I continue to love this place.
Afternoon Onyx! So grateful Jim has this website without all the clutter and headaches otherwise. HE’s been very wise to make it so... even when debates get a bit heated, in order to get to the truth, people have the opportunity to see all sides of an issue and decide for themselves.
When you prevent debate, as liberals do via PC etc. you prevent truth from being known.......therefore people will believe a lie.
