Mozilla, the company that makes the web browser Firefox, committed the only unforgivable sin progressives have it hired someone who didnt toe the progressive line to be its CEO. Uniformity of thought is the new black, and a straying from that plantation lands you on the new blacklist. Thats where Brendan Eich finds himself now for daring to stray from the progressives plantation on gay marriage.
How did Eich stray? Did he take to the streets, shout from the mountaintop, or even take an active role in a campaign? No, he wrote a check, for all of $1,000, to support the campaign in favor of Californias Proposition 8 the gay marriage ban which was supported overwhelmingly by voters. Not to have gays rounded up and killed or put in camps (those are progressive traits), or even to have homosexuality outlawed, but simply to not change the definition of marriage to fit the political flavor of the moment.
Eich had no intention of changing Mozillas corporate policy toward gays, but that didnt matter. Tolerance isnt enough. As Erick Erickson put it, "You will be made to care."
After weeks of badgering, and only weeks in his new job, the pressure on Mozilla become too much and Eich resigned. Another scalp claimed for thinking "wrongly" according to the tolerance crowd.
How did this even become an issue when the vote on Prop 8 took place in 2008? How did a man most people have never heard of become the focus of a nationwide campaign to deny him his job for thinking differently? A dating website.
The website OkCupid posted a letter that appeared only when users accessed the site using Firefox as its browser that said, "Mozillas new CEO, Brendan Eich, is an opponent of equal rights for gay couples. We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access OkCupid."
It continues with a lie about Eich wanting to make gay relationships "illegal," because why let the truth stand in the way of an agenda? And it concludes, "OkCupid is for creating love. Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame, and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure."
It reads pretty much the same in its original German.
Mozilla has a history of supporting "equality," and Eich pledged as much just two weeks ago, and explained himself and his donation two years prior. But none of that mattered. Nor did it matter that his personal beliefs, which were shared by President Obama until political expedience demanded he change, would have no impact on how he ran the company. The fascist mob wanted a scalp.
Normally how a company conducts itself is none of my concern, especially a website Id never visited. But this isnt a story about one company having an issue with another company; this is a story of how the new strain of fascism is spreading across the United States like a cold on a plane.
Eichs donation in support of Prop 8 was confidential, by law. The only reason it is known, why any of the donations are known, is the Internal Revenue Service illegally leaked the donor list to a gay rights group who posted it online. Someone in government broke the law and gave what amounts to a hit list to progressive foot soldiers who have been targeting donors for their personal beliefs.
In this case it was gay groups, but these tactics are a favorite of progressives. Under communism people who didnt embrace their agenda were purged, under fascism the nonconformists were sent to re-education/work camps, or killed. Progressives cant simply murder or imprison people who flee their thought plantation, though theyd like to, so they try to ruin them in the meantime.
Fascists are always going to be around. They are the core of the progressive heart. But its a new and disturbing development when agents in our own government are aiding progressives in their thought jihad.
The president doesnt give care if anyone on his staff bothered to tell him. Hes called all scandals related to the IRS targeting Americans for their beliefs (as long as they disagree with him) as phony. Democrats have fallen in line, obstructing ongoing investigations into any and all Obama administration scandals.
This disinterest from Democrats is ironic since such groups are allowed to keep their donors names secret because of actions by Democrats in the 1950s. Alabama, then a racist Democratic stronghold, wanted the member list of the NAACP for reasons one easily can imagine. The NAACP, fully aware Democrats and Jim Crow were one in the same, sought to protect its members from targeting and refused. The case went to the Supreme Court, which ruled unanimously groups could keep their members secret.
The case, NAACP vs. Alabama, was important because it protected people from being targeted because of their views and allowed them to work for their objectives anonymously if they wished. No longer at least if youre not a progressive.
The Eich case was summed up perfectly by Andrew Sullivan when he wrote, Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society.
The plight of a wealthy CEO may not inspire sympathy, but what it represents should worry everyone, regardless of politics. This week its gay marriage. Next week it will be something else. But it always will be something. More and more, hearing celebrate diversity means listening to like-minded drones, albeit of different colors. Those who think outside their prescribed, accepted thoughts have no place in progressive America.
The vast majority of Americans, even those who vote for Democrats or call themselves progressives, are not in tune with the radical fascistic activist fringe that is steering their ship. Decent human beings have limits and the idea of people being targeted and destroyed because they disagree with those in power is abhorrent. Unfortunately, none of those decent human beings seem to be working for OkCupid, this administration, or in Congress as Democrats right now.
Whether Obama meant it or not, 6 years ago, officially Obama supported Traditional Marriage Only as well so Obama needs to resign.
Listen to the pigs squeal when they are required to suffer the consequences of their intolerance. Queerdom is, after all, a demonic force of cowards.
"Apparently, the disgusting homophobic hatey-hatey-hateful belief that marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman is not incompatible with knowing your way around a computer."
Stroking the Queer culture is more important than profit.
Profit is a sin for queer, moonbat anti capitalists.
No more hits from me. I uninstalled my Firefox software yesterday.
Chris Muir, who does the Day By Day comic, has today highlighted a very interesting comment on the Vox Populi blog.
“This is for the benefit of all the logical slowpokes. It is logic so basic that even those who are intellectually limited to the rhetorical level should be able to follow it:
-If you have the right to demand that I bake you a cake, then I have the right to force you to attend church, mosque, or synagogue.
-If you have the right to fire me because you don’t like my political position on the legality of homogamy, I have the right to fire you because I don’t like your political position on the legality of homosexuality.
-If you have the right to deny me access to the news media because I don’t believe in climate change, I have the right to deny you access to the media because you don’t believe in God.
If atheists truly want a power struggle for the right to be intolerant, Christians will eventually engage and win. Because we will die before we will give up our beliefs and you will not. We invented the Crusade and the Inquisition, two institutions so historically intimidating that atheists still shiver and tell each other scary stories about them centuries after the event.
We will revive them before we will abandon our faith. And while we would prefer to live with both Christian and traditional Constitutional values, if we are forced to choose between the two, we will choose the former without even thinking twice.”
Just revised my OKC profile to call them on the table for being intolerant and enganging in a conspiracy to injure the rights of others... ended it, “see you all on farmersonly”
Any company that caves needs to suffer for their cowardice.
But every single person with an IQ above that of Lime Jello knew he was lying...
Traditional Marriage has been illegal in the United States since 1969. Louisiana attempted to permit (not to require) couples to choose Traditional Marriage, and their law was ruled unconstitutional.
Traditional marriage is a very, very poor choice of words to describe at-will coupling that begins with a pretty dress for opposite-sex couples.
Traditional marriage is 1) Permanent, 2) Sexually exclusive, and 3) Involves a man and at least one woman.
Advocates for what they call "traditional marriage" don't support any of the three.
Doesn't matter, that was his official stance.
We all know what Traditional Marriage means, try the National Organization of Marriage.
Sorry, Marriage is ordained by God as being between 1 man and 1 woman.
They aren’t even a top 10 dating site.
“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.”
OKCupid probably acted unilaterrally, on their own. But it is still interesting to see that the parent company owns Daily Beast (that is Newsweek) and Match.com. Those two sites are fairly big.
National Organization of Marriage are suggesting everyone remove FireFox from their computers.
Someone told me, I’m no computer geek, but that firefox was an “open code” meaning I guess, no royalties, etc. go to firefox if someone uses their format.
The present day behavior of queers illustrates why they were considered “an abomination” by G*d.
Moses got it right.
Yeah, I know. He had a “reliable source”.
even the smallest parasite can reek haivoc on the Body...politic..
I am ready, the unbelievers have no idea.
I don’t know about George Soros owned in this case, but it sounds plausible you could have this organization see this and say,
Match.com telling firefox users to leave, no, too big of a risk, Daily Beast saying it? Still too big of a risk. The same owners of OKCupid own these two companies.
Then, they might say, maybe we’ll do it with OKCupid.
Maybe soon, we will get Brendan Eich’s perspective on this.
I have no idea if this is the real deal, Brendan Eich’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/brendan.eich
I get absolutely NOTHING on this page except he did join in 2011.
