Conservative activist launches boycott of Firefox browser
American Thinker ^ | 04/05/2014 | Rick Moran

Ben Shapiro of the website TruthRevolt isn't taking the actions of gay activists who forced CEO Brenden Eich out of his CEO position at Mozilla lying down. In fact, Shapiro has called for a boycott of Mozilla's Firefox browser as a way for conservatives to show their displeasure with the outrageous intolerance demonstrated by gay activistis.

Washington Times:

Conservative activist Ben Shapiro is leading up an online charge of fellow political compadres to boycott the browser Firefox — an outraged response to the Mozilla chief’s departure from his CEO role due to gay rights’ protests.

Former CEO Brendan Eich, who’s been with Mozilla since its creation and actually helped found the company’s charitable offshoot foundation in 1998, announced this week he’s stepping down from the role over a flap generated by a $1,000 donation he made to a California campaign that sought to ban same-sex marriage in the state.

It came off my computer yesterday. It hurts because my Microsoft browser doesn’t do radar on the Weather Channel.

Free Republic could block users using Firefox.

This need not be defined as a discrimination of conservatives. This crosses political lines and needs be a boycott on discrimination, period. This isn’t about politics, religion or any one thing. It’s anti-1st amendment and anti-freedom.

Nobody needs to lead the revolt. It has already metastasized on their own website. Negative comments are over 100 to one against Mozilla and Firefox and people are dropping it in droves.

Mozilla will end up being used only by Gay Nazis. Even homosexuals are fed up with the homo-Nazis.

A FReeper said yesterday: companies need to stop reacting to insulted gays because doing so pisses off all the OTHER people, and now everybody hates you.

Win-win for the Lavender Mafia.

This incident proves again why inside the body of every leftist beats the heart of a fascist. Jonah Goldberg was exactly right in his book “Liberal Fascism” why the drives and goals of leftists, no matter how well-intentioned or ill-intentioned, leads to fascism/totalitarianism. Everybody must think and act the same. If you believe there’s something wrong with males jamming their members into the anal orifice of other males, then there’s something wrong with you, and we must shut you up or maybe even jail you. We might have to eventually liquidate you in the name of “social justice.”

...my Microsoft browser doesn’t do radar on the Weather Channel.

It was recommended to me that those who use the Windows XP or Vista operating systems NOT use the outdated Internet Explorer, for many reasons. It's okay to use IE11 on the Windows 7 operating system.

It's going to be hard to make a political statement stick because Firefox, even still today, is one of the best browsers for various operating systems, IMnotsoHO.

Before anyone boycotts Firefox as their browser those who are of the conservative mindset and ideology need to build a browser for conservatives.
Surely there are people out there who know the ins and outs of technology that can build a web browser for conservatives.
Give conservatives a alternative to Firefox.
Sorry, I do not even feel good or safe about going to Microsoft Internet Explorer, or Safari, Google Chrome.
All of them track you.... all of them.
Perhaps ? this is a ploy to get conservatives to drop Firefox and go to a browser to track them ?
Come on Conservatives with the know how ? build us a new web browser for conservatives that is even safer than Firefox.

This boycott is missing the point.

Take the route that Duck Dynasty and Chick Fil A did: Calmly state your beliefs and refuse to back down.

That's what their agenda is..... and there was a popular song back in the 70's from the rock group Queen, " We are the Champions "
Whether anyone wants to believe it or not, that's what that song was about, the militant homosexuals...
