Does Rachel Maddow work for a homophobe? Is the boss of MSNBC that would be NBC Universals chief executive officer and Comcast Executive Vice President Stephen B. Burke next on the Gay Gestapos hit list? For donating to the traditional marriage-supporting former senator Rick Santorum? Was columnist and commentator Pat Buchanan fired from his MSNBC job for views that Santorum holds and held when Comcasts Burke was giving money to Santorum?
Is entertainment mogul Barry Diller the boss of Inter Active Corp, which owns the site OkCupid that urged the firing of Mozillas Brendan Eich over gay marriage playing corporate footsie with a network of homophobes? For profit?
And Slate, the left wing online publication? Do they know who Thomas Leppert is?
It doesnt get any richer in irony or thicker in hypocrisy than all of this.
Lets begin by recalling the boycott that fired the furor over now-departed Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, forced out because of a six-year-old $1,000 contribution in support of Californias Proposition 8 that banned same-sex marriage. The managers of OkCupid, an online dating site and not just any online dating site, as we will get to in a moment set their system so any visitors using the Firefox browser would receive a message reading:

Political Correctness raised to a terrorist tactic.
No person is safe from this “gay Mafia”. Everybody, somewhere, sometime, has violated what they pretend to believe is their “moral” code of conduct. No diversity, no deviation from their very strict agenda is to be permitted.
I believe I read a science-fiction story once about how the dominant philosophy advocating the moral superiority of homosexuals had extended to the point of actively persecuting and tormenting the “heteros”, and subjecting them to brutalities and making them the object of riots and “street justice”.
I was puzzled at the time as to how such a society could possibly last more than however long it took that generation to die off.
By golly, yes. Purge! PURGE THEM ALL and SHUN THE NON-BELIEVERS!!!1!
Homo = Literally "One and the same", sometimes used as a slang term for homosexuals.
Therefore a Homophobe, if the term were derived from any scientific basis instead of being a derogatory slang term, would mean an irrational fear of things that were the same. Using the slang term "homo" in the word "homophobe" demonstrates that the word "homophobe" is a slang term made up by an idiot. Regardless of it's improper and illogical use of the prefix "homo", it also uses the word "phobia" incorrectly. Most people described as "homophobes" are not demonstrating an irrational fear or aversion to homosexuality, in fact one could make the logical claim that they are in fact displaying a natural aversion to unnatural acts.
Thus as an improperly formed word based on slang and wishful thinking, the term "homophobe" only serves as a pejorative that homosexuals use to cow their enemy...and their enemies are not just those against the homosexual agenda, increasingly their enemies are those that don't push the homosexual agenda aggressively enough.
There will be a backlash, just like there will be against "African-Americans" who incessantly accuse any non-black person of being racist.
If someone is constantly being falsely accused of hating homosexuals or certain races, first they will eventually realize that it doesn't really matter what they do or don't do, they are going to be accused anyway. Then they are going to realize that it's not they who are guilty of hate and bigotry. Once that happens all these special rights "victim" groups are going to have a really tough time, and what are they going to do call people racists and homophobes some more?
