Posted on 04/06/2014 3:45:54 PM PDT by Salman
A revolt among Mozilla staffers, compounded by pressure from software developers, outrage on Twitter and a boycott movement spearheaded by OkCupid, has driven Eich out. Baker, having accepted Eichs resignation, offers this apology: We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: its because we havent stayed true to ourselves.
Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But lets not stop here. If were serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.

A revolt among Mozilla staffers
I think that has a lot more to do with what happened than the OK Cupid business or the garbage on Twitter.
Purge the bigots - get rid of gays. Works both ways.
This will come to blood in the streets if they refuse peaceful separation.
Wow, I thought this must be satire but links like this evil troll is serious.
The problem is that we are letting the deviants define us as bigots if we don’t actively endorse and promote their DEVIANT behavior.
Wow, just wow!! The leftists have “progressed” to the point where they are OPENLY becoming Stalinists.
I have no words for this beyond we had best make sure ALL Americans understand the agendas of the leftists. For many of said leftists/progressives, if they had the opportunity, opening of the camps and gas chambers would be a final fulfillment of their long held, but dormant, dream.
You realize that this article is satire? He is saying that if you are going to call for Eich to be fired, call for all the others who donated as well or shut up.
The Intolerantly Tolerant haven’t figured that out, yet.
Stalin had purges, too.
I read the full article.
I saw no indication it was satire.
They are like sharks smelling blood in the water.
The picture at the top of the article is interesting. The man waving the middle finger and appearing to be screaming at the Mormons is a self-proclaimed victim of hate. He looks pretty hateful to me. Perhaps he’s mentally ill or just upset that he can’t properly spell a simple four-letter word.
I disagree. Those who forced Eich out are bigots who got what they wanted. Who are they to say who does and does not get what they deserve?
Eich should have had the courage of his convictions and told them all to go pound sand. They had no real power over him anyway.
If he’s counting on his readers checking their Twitter accounts to see it’s satire, his judgment is exceedingly bad.
Some of us don’t waste our time on Twitter.
I saw the end of the article as a “call to action”.
Satire or not, I think it’s likely that most of the people who insisted that Eich be fired would also love to see every supporter of traditional marriage fired also—and perhaps even killed. They are the new jihadists.
Today the purges.
Tomorrow the pogroms.
> But lets not stop here. If were serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.
from Slate. Thanks Salman.
Actually hard to tell. Saletan has (not always, but sometimes) ranted and raved in extreme ways on sexuality issues; and this could be taken as satire by normal people, but a to-do list for Slate readers.
But why stop there? More...
I don’t think it is satire. I think it is more a call to arms as his statement below indicates.
[If were serious about taking down corporate officers who supported Proposition 8, and boycotting employers who promote them, we’d better get cracking on the rest of the list. Otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks.]
I uninstalled Firefox this morning and sent them a message telling them why.
I thought it must be satire too - kept waiting for the punch line but it never came. It is satire right? Sure as hell hope so.
The last line gives the rest of the article its context.
There can be no peaceful separation. They will come for us.
So what is the next step?
The article is clearly satire, its pointing the figure at those who gleefully joined the public lynching of Eich when it became “cool” to do so.
Notice the last line of his article.....”We’d better get cracking on tge rest of the list. Otherwise, perhaps we should put the pitchforks down.”
Basically he is sympathetic but is calling off the witch hunt, saying if youre not going to go after thousands of others for giving money, then you need to stop condemning people who supported Prop 8 entirely.
Why should I not interpret this as "Go big or go home"?
I've been through the article twice and find nothing resembling satire.
When John Semmens writes satire, I can find it. I can't find it here.
well, this goes along with them being mentally ill narcissists. Who demand the world adore them and show them preference and deferrence or they turn into Whatever Happened to Baby Janes.
Thats just my impression.
Eradicating homosexual practices is self-defense for society — even if just as a health issue.
Sorry. Don't buy it.
I think that purging 35,000 people would give this guy a thrill.
I am going to start taking the laughing boys seriously as a clear and present danger.
Because there is no way that they would attempt to go after all those people, it would cost them a lot of public support for that witchhunt.
The ridiculousness of the lists should have given it away, that ending line definitely gave away. Basically the article is discouraging the bulkying of people in their jobs. That is why those on the left seem less than pleased with Saletan, he is exposong the ridiculousness of the situation, like “are you seriously going to try and go after anyone who ever had an anti-gay thought in anytime.
Even supporters such as Andrew Sullivan have criticized the actions agaonst Eich, the allies of the pro gay groups are basically telling them to reel it in or lose support from the public.
If theres one thing people hate it is a bully, if the gay movement is widely caricatured as bullies, it will make their agenda far more difficult to proceed with.
Well, serious or satire, if this idea is actually implemented, there will suddenly be a lot of start-ups created by folks who understand what marriage actually is (and thus likely have sensible views on social issues in general), to compete with the now-short-staffed politically correct companies.
These guys are mentally ill.
They actually think there is enough public support for their position that they can get away with this.
Expect them to act accordingly.
They're out for blood.
And they never will. Just need Conservatives to come out opposing them. But sadly most are just ..... -——
Perhaps the best thing to do is deport them to places like Iran, Iraq, or Saudi Arabia. They’ll welcome the deviants with open arms.
What makes you think it is satire? If the queers do what he's proposing, I'll not be surprised.
“... worth a thousand words.”
If they tried to do what he is proposing, the blowback woukd be so immense that it would threaten all the gains they made. There is a lot of people who support gay marriage but not the homo lifestyle.
They could lose those people very easily and that is basically what Saletan is warning about along with Andrew Sullivan.
In the end, the gay lobby, while vocal, is still a tiny minority and they rely on the patronage of others for their support, once they expose themselves widely as bullies, they lose a ton of support.
Purge anybody who donates to any Republican, or who votes for any Republican.
We can't rest until we have driven our enemy to the grave.
I’ve been through the article twice and find nothing resembling satire.
...are you seriously suggesting that he is urging his readers to actively pursue everyone on the lists he provides?
Why shouldn’t I?
I see no evidence to the contrary.
Forty years ago, Barack Obama’s compatriots wanted to send 25 million of us to the ovens, and not as pastry chefs.
Compared to that, costing 35000 people their jobs is trivial.
I would imagine that Eich will be getting a chunk of change for his part of the business. Were I he I would use that money to sue the web page, Mozilla, it’s remaining officers and board members for defamation of character. From what I can tell all Eich did was donate money which is protected speech.
Punchline: "Otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks." Implying that his fellow proggies are an unruly mob storming the tech industry with pitchforks and torches in search of Prop8 nonconformists.
The sad thing about liberal haters is they'll probably miss the sarcasm in this piece.
How can you satirize your own position? I would maybe call it reductio ad absurdum maybe.
“You realize that this article is satire? He is saying that if you are going to call for Eich to be fired, call for all the others who donated as well or shut up.”
It doesn’t meet my definition of satire. He’s calling on progressives to go “ALL IN” on a campaign of destroying those who oppose their agenda. He and other progressives are smelling blood in the water and are marveling at their success in destroying this man. The irrational HATRED that the progressives have for their enemies and their desires to absolutely destroy those enemies is boundless.
“Wow, I thought this must be satire but links like this evil troll is serious.

Yep, he’s simply saying “go big or go home” or “let’s do it”. The progressives are insane sociopaths who, at the moment, smell blood and want more-—LOTS MORE.
