Mozilla CEO Forced Out After IRS Revealed to Gay Militants That He Supported Traditional Marriage
On Tuesday, I made the following prediction regarding Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, who had incurred the wrath of gay militants by making a private donation in support of civilization’s most fundamental institution, marriage:
Eich’s future with Mozilla or with anyone else in the lockstep liberal tech industry is probably not bright.
Sure enough. On Thursday, we read this:
Mozilla Corp. co-founder Brendan Eich has resigned as CEO after a week of public pressure stemming from a campaign contribution he made six years ago. Eich supported the wrong cause; he supported California’s Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
Over the entire history of the human race, not one person in a thousand would have thought it anything but depraved and insane to consider that a legitimate marriage could consist of anything other than a man and a woman. Just over a year ago, even Barack Obama — the very personification of the transformative Left — publicly held the same view Eich privately donated his own money to support.
But that view is no longer permissible, now that radical deviants determine what we can and cannot think and feel.
This is putting it mildly:
For some who favor the redefinition of marriage, tolerance appears to have been a useful rhetorical device along the way to eliminating dissent.
The demise of Brendan Eich demonstrates what happens to those who really are tolerant, if it is learned that they have ever failed to toe the politically correct line:
Eich, on the other hand, seems to have been quite tolerant. As Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker, commenting on the development, said of Eich’s 15 years at Mozilla:
“I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness.”
Prop 8 passed, due to the support of millions of Californians. These millions no longer qualify for employment in the ideologically homogeneous tech industry. Consistent with this creeping totalitarianism, Prop 8 was never implemented despite the voters’ will; it was stopped by a homosexual activist judge.
Eich isn’t the first to be punished after being outed as not wholeheartedly on board with the homosexual agenda:
In a series of instances we have seen the gatekeepers of civil society attack those who hold the view that marriage is between a man and a woman –Chick-fil-A, Barilla Pasta, Craig James (who was fired from ESPN), and “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson. …
Other cases include a photographer, a baker, a florist, a bed-and-breakfast, a T-shirt company, a student counselor, the Salvation Army, and more. In each of these instances, there were plenty of other businesses available that were willing to provide similar services.
Considering that Brendan Eich is such an easygoing guy, how did the gay mafia even know to put out a hit on him? Because Obama’s politicized and weaponized IRS tipped them off. Via First Things:
Why, then, the ruckus? Amazingly enough, it is entirely due to the fact that Eich made a $1,000 donation to the campaign urging a ‘yes’ vote on California’s Proposition 8. When this fact first came to light in 2012, after the Internal Revenue Service leaked a copy of the National Organization for Marriage’s 2008 tax return to a gay-advocacy group, Eich, who was then CTO of Mozilla, published a post on his personal blog stating that his donation was not motivated by any sort of animosity towards gays or lesbians, and challenging those who did not believe this to cite any “incident where I displayed hatred, or ever treated someone less than respectfully because of group affinity or individual identity.”
Upon being named CEO last Wednesday, Eich immediately put up another post which among other things pledged in direct terms first that he would ensure Mozilla continued offering health benefits to the same-sex partners of its employees; second that he would allocate additional resources to a project that aims to bring more LGBTQ individuals into the technology world and Mozilla in particular; and third that he would maintain and strengthen Mozilla’s policies against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It’s worth emphasizing that Eich made this statement prior to the storm of outrage which has since erupted, and that with these policies and others Mozilla easily ranks among the most gay-friendly work environments in the United States.
It is not enough to go out of your way to be gay-friendly. If you are revealed by a government that knows everything to have ever held an opinion not consistent with the current cutting edge of radical homosexual ideology, you are liable to be destroyed as an example to others who might stray from the herd.
We cannot live and let live with the militants shoving the homosexual agenda down our throats. Either we put up resistance, or they continue using fascist tactics to remake our society in the image of theirs. Unless you would rather live in a San Francisco bathhouse than in anything even vaguely resembling America, wake up and fight back. If like many you don’t have the nerve to risk being denounced as a “homophobe,” get used to avoiding your own eyes in the mirror.
They have been able to push us so far so fast, so that even formerly traditional companies like Barilla crawl on their knees to please the pink fascists, because there is no one pushing in the opposite direction. The absolute least we can do is uninstall Firefox immediately and refuse to use any other Mozilla products, like Thunderbird. Others are doing it, you should too.
