Skip to comments.Is Mozilla legally a hostile workplace under both state and federal laws?

Hasn't the lead up to, the firing and subsequent press release made Mozilla a hostile workplace not only for those who financially supported Prop. 8 or similar laws, but anyone who does not fully support same sex marriage? Can a Mormon, Evangelical or other conservative Christian, Muslim, religious Jew have a career at Mozilla? Do they have to live in fear if their actual views or suspected views don't comply with Mozilla' s idea of diversity (agree with same sex marriage or be forced out?)
Are those news organizations supporting Mozilla' s decision also making their business a hostile work place?
The thing that struck me were the fawing and craven statements from this CEO, in his attempt to to suck-up to the politically correct Red Guards and homosexual lobby.
It didn’t even save his job either - they still forced him out.
You can not compromise with radicals.
The hate and hostile workplace laws only work in one direction. Similar to racism, which by definition as accepted by government and MSM, can only exist in whites toward blacks.
Dude, this is brilliant! Yes our side needs to file a suit on this. I am a huge fan of using the left’s tactics against them; they can’t handle it.
When Gov Walker (WI) was Milw Co. exec there was a budget rally to support him. When I found that the unions were going to protest I decided to go. I made a 2 sided sign that said:
We are the ones who have been over-paying you, and
I survived a pay cut, so can you
The union goons were stunned, couldn’t believe that someone was protesting them!
I seriously hope this tactic gets pursued.
and one should not even try. They will just bayonet you when they get close so the best advice is to cut them down before they get inside the wire.
And doing so illegally, but as if a judge is going to rule in favor of actual law in California.
I have been watching their feedback page this weekend and they are getting hammered by outraged Firefox users. After I uninstalled them I added my two cents worth. The totalitarians and their quislings must begin experiencing pushback themselves.
This is exactly what I worry about at work.
We have a guy on our team who’s gay. If he decides to get married, will I be accused of creating a hostile work environment if I don’t attend his wedding shower or buy him a gift or a card for it, or don’t attend his wedding or buy him a gift or a card for it?
I just pray he doesn’t get married and I don’t have to find out.
Are you sure it was Brendan Eich who made the statements? Someone else at Mozilla released a statement after he resigned.
Silly person. Tolerance has a one way valve. Besides, they covered their asses. He was not fired. He resigned. He should have gone down fighting and taken the company through the wringer with him.
What fawning and craven statements? Cite us some examples.
I agree. He hardly did a thing. Orson Scott Card, on the other hand, did better when people got outraged over his stances, and demanded a Boycott of his film. He simply stated that he wasn’t a threat to anyone, and Harrison Ford chimed in as well, stating that the film and the books didn’t push any blatant bivotry. I wish Eich coukd have done something simikar and stated that he hadno problem despite his positions with his coworkers.
I can’t say. How well does he know you? I had it the other way around. Due to circumstance, someone whom I know was a homosexual but unable to come due tp travel circumstances, I wrote thanks for the congratulatory note, and figured that I handled it the best I could. It also depends on the size of tje reception, maybe there’s only so many who cn come?
Good point. I wish some would force test the issue.
I like it, sue their stupid brains out!
dud this is amazing- you should psot this on FACEBOOK and I bet it goes Viral
There is no law requiring you to be his buddy outside of work. You do not have to attend his social gatherings or purchase gifts for him. He cannot make demands on your personal time. just tell him that you do not mix business with your social life.
Like I said...Brendan Eich needs to get a labor lawyer.
Companies in the Santa Clara Valley are routinely sued for far, far less and the worker wins.
He can bankrupt Mozilla over this.
I don't know, but I didn't ever attend a wedding shower or wedding or buy a gift or card for anyone at work during my whole working career.
That is why these discussings are meaningless. It's time to get it on. Forget the rhetoric. If not succumb & live as slaves.
Unfortunately, your freedom of thought/opinion/speech
about this guy is deemed punishable in the court of political correctness. Any action or inaction on your part will be viewed and judged by the politically correct. It is important that the left make you out to be a criminal or otherwise evil. Even sitting down and shutting up has become a subversive act.
Hmm. Some employee of Mozilla would have to step up and make the complaint....
I think his position was getting the job done and working with the team was more important than differences. But Eich failed to grasp what “diversity” is really about. I put the word in quotes since this is yet another example of Marxist-Leninist corruption of the language. Diversity now means adherence to the Party doctrine of attacking class enemies of the Party.
Not only Mozilla is potentially on the legal hot seat for Eich’ s constructive discharge in violation of both federal and California laws prohibiting religious discrimination. I think a very good case can be made against OK Cupid as a tortfeasor, for tortious interference ‘swith contractual relations. The same can be said about any of the other parties who were loudly calling for Eich’ s scalp.
Not sure about that, but disc9very would be interested to look at coordination w8th ?Mozilla Explorer,the media and others
So,what mail client will import Thunderbird emails?
Read his March 26th comments on being named CEO. It says nothing about technology, health of the company, etc... Its a mea culpa to PC correctness and attacks on him
So what you are saying is that his paying lip service to the Gaystapo at Mozilla has more gravitas than him donating money to a group in favor of Prop 8?
Can a faithful Catholic be an employee of Mozilla? Same question about an Evangelical Christian.
If one is an employee of Mozilla, and then it comes out you favor man/woman marriage only - can they fire you without some other reason? Could a lawsuit be raised against the company of they fire you?
All faith-filled persons need to rise up against this fascism!
I’m trying Postbox. So far it seems fully compatible with Thunderbird.
“Hostile Work Environment
Hostile Work Environment Definition
[...]Subsequently, to be illegal under one of the laws in the eyes of the courts, a hostile work environment typically must be caused by discriminatory workplace harassment based on race, color, religion, national origin, disability, genetics, age or sex; or it must be caused by retaliation in violation of a discrimination law.”
Absolutely - unfortunately if it goes to court some paid-for faggot in a black robe will dismiss it.
What you are saying is a total lie. He was not craven at all. You would be lucky to be half the man he is.
A little close to home, perhaps? Did you read the same document I did?
Huh? Its the exact opposite of what I am saying.
So what you are saying is he is your average corporate CEO suck up trying to play both sides of the issue?
I am saying: when the man was confronted by the gay red guards, he tried to say how understanding, how diverse, how accepting he was of “the LGBTQ cause” - and what did it get him?
I have no doubt Eich is a very smart, reasonable man who is respectful and sincere to all people he meets - and is also one who simply just does not believe in gay marriage (which is absolutely his right).
But his soft, soothing and apologetic tones to the gaystapo activists were taken by them as weakness and admission of guilt. His kindness helped him none at all with these radicals - they still got him fired immediately, and ran his name through the mud.
WATCH: Gingrich Calls Eich Resignation Example of ‘New Fascism’
How many Jews tried the “But I’m a loyal German” defense? Didn’t do them any good.
More than enough.
