Posted on 04/04/2014 8:13:54 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
As we enter this golden age of tolerance and diversity, the nations gay rights community is sending a warning message to Americans: If you dont support gay marriage, you dont deserve a job.
Apparently, Brendan Eich did not get that message. Hes the former chief executive officer at Mozilla, the technology group that gave us the Firefox Web browser.
Eich resigned under a firestorm of controversy after it was revealed he had donated $1,000 in support of Californias Proposition 8, a ballot initiative that protected traditional marriage.
Its unclear who outed Eich. But that really doesnt matter. Once his donation was revealed, supporters of gay marriage launched all-out war.
The Wall Street Journal reported that OKCupid, the popular online dating website, asked its followers to stop using Firefox. The wireless company Credo Mobile gathered more than 50,000 signatures on a petition calling for Eich to resign.
OKCupid posted a letter denouncing the Mozilla CEO, The New York Times reported.
Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame and frustration are our enemies and we wish them nothing but failure, the letter stated.
Why not demand that those who oppose gay marriage relinquish the right to own property? Why not take away their right to vote? Why not take away their children? Why not just throw them in jail? Why not force them to work in chain gangs? Why not call for public floggings? Or better yet, lets just strap them down on gurneys, stick a needle in their arm and rid the world of these intolerant anti-gay bigots once and for all.
Eich wont say he was forced to resign, but based on the companys press release, its safe to say his days were numbered.
Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didnt live up to it, Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker wrote in a statement.
We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: its because we havent stayed true to ourselves.
She went on to opine about freedom of speech and equality. In her estimation, one trumps the other.
Equality is necessary for meaningful speech, she wrote. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.
No, not really, Ms. Baker. Our Founding Fathers sort of worked that out in the Bill of Rights.
I write about this very issue in my upcoming book, God Less America. There are pages and pages filled with stories of workers and business owners whove either lost their jobs or faced public floggings for their support of traditional marriage.
The left does not believe people who oppose gay marriage should be allowed to engage in the democratic process. And they have a proven track record of intimidating and bullying those who do.
Just ask Angela McCaskill, the chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University. She was suspended after she signed a petition in her church to put a gay marriage referendum on the ballot in Maryland.
Just ask Scott Eckern, the former artistic director of California Musical Theatre. He resigned under pressure after he gave money to support Prop 8. As one activist told The New York Times, I do believe there comes a time when you cannot sit back and accept what I think is the most dangerous form of bigotry.
Just ask our nations top military officials. They were called into President Obamas office and told that if they could not support Dont Ask, Dont Tell, they should resign their commissions.
We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked at all five service chiefs in the eye and said, This is what I want to do, said Coast Guard Adm. Robert Papp in remarks reported by Buzzfeed.
The road to political correctness is littered with the bodies of folks like Brendan Eich sideswiped by the tolerance and diversity bus.
I trust there are rational and reasonable individuals within the gay rights community who understand the dangers of stifling free speech and expression. But the voices that are winning the day are those who believe gay rights trump everyone elses rights.
I know this may sound old-fashioned, but gainful employment should not be determined by where you put your reproductive organs.
Tolerance is a b*tch, aint it?
Wait and see.
The moral of the story is, never piss off the HomoNazis. They’ve got the “powah” now!
oh don't worry, they're working on it!
Orange Kristallnacht. Who will they come for next?
I have so many threads on this open right now, but am at work and can’t keep up.
Was there somewhere saying that the non-militant LGBT folks were angry over this witch hunt by the militant wing?
Also, did the disaproval rating on Mozilla’s site actually jump from 60% to 93% in these last few hours?
Can the guy turn around and sue the homo groups? It’s probably the only language they will understand.
If you deleted/uninstalled firefox today...I would suggest komodo dragon..(open source just like chrome) or Komodo Ice dragon (open sourse just like firefox)
Makes you wonder who will defeat democracy first ... Islamist, homosexuals, or socialists ... the race is on.
I remember reading about conditions in the Soviet Union during the cold war. One of my coworkers escaped the Soviet Union after he was severely beaten for the content of articles he wrote for his high school newspaper. I used to wonder how a government could hold such power over the people, but now I am beginning to realize, it is the people that exercise that power over their neighbors. The government is simply the recipient of the fascist nature of a certain segment of society.
“Equality is necessary for meaningful speech, she wrote. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”
What a gutless corporate weasel.
As for the lesson here...perhaps it’s time to figure out a way to take a page from the 2008 Obama campaign and utilize small, anonymous online donations (which were probably laundered Soros donations in Obama’s case, but that’s another topic for another time) whenever possible to thwart the PC police.
Islamist, homosexuals, or socialists....that is a pretty degenerate and immoral group. Maye the tables should be turned where the next 150 million exterminated should be “them” and not business people and farmers.
These Nazi’s backed down from Chick-fil-a, Hobby Lobby and Duck Dynasty. They can be made to back down from Mozilla.
Anyone know of a conservative web browser?
Aren’t we currently being ruled by an Islamic homosexual socialist?
Or am I wrong?
Honestly, there are many days I wonder why did we ever bother fighting al-Qaeda scumbags, when we have homegrown homo-fascists and their leftist enablers already busily destroying America from the inside, turning the country into such an ugly, deviant sewer.
The transformation of America into this depraved and fascist Homo-America makes 9/11 look almost like a minor flesh-wound in comparison.
And I doubt you are wrong.
The perverts are in charge.
The problem is not the homo-Nazis, the problem is guys like him bending over for them. Why did he resign? Why didn’t he tell them to go F themselves? What are they going to do? Pinch you on the bottom? Wrist slap you? The point being what if it was NAMBLA protesting? Would he resign? He gave up his belief to appease and now he made himself look like he supports sodomy.
Every Firefox user should abandon the browser and send the company a clear statement of why they did so.
Effect just might be like what the sponsors who abandoned Rush experienced..........
Yes you are wrong. We are being ruled by a Kenyan born Islamic, homosexual, socialist.
OK, but if they boycott employment of conservatives, then conservative employers will have to boycott employment of anyone BUT conservatives, elsewise conservatives won’t be able to get a job. Is that REALLY a fight the poofters want to pick? Kind of a be careful what you ask for situation.
Excellent question. But I would suggest that the word "democracy" be replaced by "freedom", or perhaps by "civilization".
At any rate, IMHO in the short term answer is homosexuals. But in the long term, the answer is islamists.
Of course, a Charles Martel might suddenly appear and change everything. But I'm not betting on that.
Don’t forget Cracker Barrel’s oopsie.
I never heard of Hobby lobby, but to me what made the homo-Nazis back down from Chick-fil-a and Duck Dynasty was the huge support they got. Remember the huge lines of people lining up to buy Chick-fil-a? Homo-Nazis make up a tiny minority yet people allow them to dictate to the whole country when they could easily be crushed. I think Mozilla didn’t get enough publicity, this is the first I heard of it. If this guy just hung on and didn’t resign and instead promoted it, people would have come out and supported him and beat back the homo-Nazis and their flapping wrists yet again.
All of the above would get top billing for the demise of civilization as we know it. As for Charles Martel, he is spinning in his grave ... whether with laughter or chagrin, who knows.
Hobby Lobby is a chain of 561 arts and crafts stores. They are currently tangling with the Regime over being required to cover contraceptives in their employee health plan.
Sarah Palin could have been the next Charles Martel, a smiling, lady version of Charles Martel. But mistakes were made. Oh, Sarah...what might have been.
There are now two candidates for the modern-day Martel position: Vladimir Putin, and Prince Harry. I see no candidates in the USA.
Use Mozilla more. Write to them and tell them.
You assume that Sarah Palin is out of the running? Never, never underestimate Sara and what she might do.
No, not at all. As a king-maker, she is very influential. Her endorsements have weight. But as a candidate herself, she is damaged. It pains me greatly to say that.
Take a look at my tagline. Palin really is a successor to Reagan. But mistakes were made.
Use Mozilla products more, and write them to tell them so.
Everybody assumed that Nixon was damaged and out of the running for President after the Kennedy/Nixon debates.
And yet, he became president.
Thatis not the case. Hobby Lobby’s insurance currently supplies contraceptives. What they are fighting is being forced to supply abortion drugs.
Good point. You've got me feeling a bit upbeat again!
I guess all I need now is word that Queen Elizabeth is going to abdicate in favor of Prince Henry, while at the same time ordering Charles off to Antarctica to study ice flows.
From what I understand about the ascendancy of the British throne it is not up to the Queen. It is up to the natural ascendancy ... Queen, to eldest son/daughter. She has no say in the matter.
It’s easy to sit behind a keyboard and say what we’d do in that circumstance. HE founded and built the company. Apparently, to him the company’s survival was more important than his being its CEO.
I want real MEN and DADS to run for President and for every leadership position.
I want real WOMEN and MOMS to support their MEN in those positions. and shame the sodomists and lezzies and muzzies and killers of their own babies out of our churches, out of our schools, out of our governmen, out of our nation, and out of the whole world.
I don't want to have to have MOMS. including Sara, doing the work their MEN ought to be doing,
“Thatis not the case. Hobby Lobbys insurance currently supplies contraceptives. What they are fighting is being forced to supply abortion drugs.”
The left includes those drugs as “contraceptives”.
Mozilla pretty much forced the guy to resign. What do they have besides Firefox? I want to avoid them any way I can.
In view of the fact he was intimidated as a result of his sexual orientation, I would think so.
“Palin really is a successor to Reagan. But mistakes were made.”
Palin is the real deal but lets bail on her.
There isn’t a decent imaginable conservative Leader who won’t be marginalized the way Palin was.
At what point might any ‘successor to Reagan’ feel that they may count on our principled support?
