‘NewsOne Now’ Panel: Has the LGBT Lobby Gone Too Far?
Newsone ^ | Apr 7, 2014

Posted on 04/09/2014 11:30:39 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Just ten days after becoming CEO of web company Mozilla, Brendan Eich resigned after drawing the ire of LGBT advocates.

In 2008, Eich donated money to the Proposition 8 campaign, an effort around legislation to make same-sex marriage illegal in California. When he was announced as the new Mozilla head, members of the LGBT community and even Mozilla employees expressed their dissatisfaction through social media and called for Eich’s resignation. Many have since spoken out against the backlash calling it unfair.

On Monday’s “NewsOne Now,” Roland Martin was joined by a panel of guests to discuss the news, whether the LGBT lobby went too far with Eich and where protests cross the line into bullying.


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Constitution/Conservatism; Extended News; US: California
KEYWORDS: bullying; california; ceo; employees; gaystapo; homosexualagenda; lgbt; lgbtlobby; liberalfascism; marriage; mozilla; news; overplayedhand; proposition8; resignation; socialmedia

They’ve been pushing boundaries since day one and at last, people are beginning to push back.

This is no longer about recognition of being human beings or having the right to pork each other till Kingdom Come, but now it’s about wrecking lives, the lives of people who don’t do what they say without question.

It’s not a matter of too far - it’s a matter of finally honest.

In 2008 Barack Obama was opposed to “gay” “marriage” on moral/religious grounds. And as a U.S. senator, his opinion had a much greater chance of affecting the lives of homosexuals that any opinion of Mr. Eich.

Why are the same people who attacked Mr. Eich not calling for Mr. Obama’s resignation?

PS - No need for an answer - the question was sarcastic/rhetorical.

It’s interesting to see people pushing back; it proves my theory that Americans are not the doormat wimps everyone (and many on here) despair of them being.

The LGBT crowd has crossed the line! But who let them do it?
Pandering to a cause never did any good! There is a point when, as we say in the South to. Go Slam to Hell!

At the moment the LGBT community knows that even they can’t take down Obama.

The people will push back when they have to.

The reason it takes them awhile is they're busy working jobs. By contrast, the liberals work full time at political activism supported by Gov't grants and such.

I think LGBT may have jumped the shark this time. We'll see.

“The reason it takes them awhile is they’re busy working jobs. By contrast, the liberals work full time at political activism supported by Gov’t grants and such.”

Exactly; I do think that jobs and careers are the best way to mainstream someone (my username makes that clear :)) and if gays stopped being a government supported movement, things would be a lot better.

What amazes me is how Brendan Eich has been able to drop off the Earth since this went down. Not a peep.

This is a stupid argument. It isn’t that they’ve “gone to far,” it is the NATURE of their attacks and where they’re going AT ALL.

Like Rush said earlier this week, these leftist groups have been extremely successful at demonizing anyone who disagrees with their “issue” by casting us as “evil” because we don’t agree. Don’t agree with gay marriage? You hate gays. Don’t agree with global warming? You hate a clean environment. Don’t want amnesty for illegals? You hate Hispanics. We’ve got to find a way to get the word out that conservatives aren’t haters of people or races or the environment or women or.....

Only blacks appear at “news” One Now, so it cannot be taken seriously.

If the homosexual Mafia can force out people from their positions because they oppose the homosexual agenda then equal treatment ought to stand and homosexuals ought to be forced out of their positions for supporting the homosexual agenda.

"......casting us as “evil” because we don’t agree. Don’t agree with gay marriage? You hate gays. Don’t agree with global warming? You hate a clean environment. Don’t want amnesty for illegals? You hate Hispanics. "

We have to turn the table on them by using in our answer a Hungarian proverb: “In judging others, the point of departure is always himself.”

Yes, I do.

Don’t agree with global warming? You hate a clean environment.

Yes, I do.

Don’t want amnesty for illegals? You hate Hispanics.

Yes, I do.

Why should any of these groups be different than all the rest.

I hate everyone.

Nope. I say bring back sodomy laws. It should be a serious felony to engage in homosexual or lesbian acts.

When they say, I am against gay marriage, therefore I hate gays, I just tell them I don’t accept the validity of their false arguments, and kind of tell them where the sun don’t shine.

No, but interviewed somewhere.

It is unusual for the central figures in a story to just vanish.

Why would he possibly do an an interview anyway? There’s no way he can win.

Obama is one with the LGBT crowd. They know clearly that Obama was lying in 08. They know it was a means to and end. They are all tyrants.

Depends - on Anderson Cooper probably not.

If he wants to talk to Hannity all he has to do is pick up the ringing phone.
