Thus ends Free speech in America, This man did nothing wrong he made a donation
to a campaign. He did not force his views on people in the work place. These
things that happened to this man are the same fascist tactics used to silence
opposition. If the Gay community were really all about tolerance and acceptance
then this man would still be the CEO. Sadly it is not so They are only tolerant
if you share their view.
This show just how tolerant the political left really is.They hounded Mr.
Eich until he left. This isn't just discrimination it is persecution.We know that a people is ripening in iniquity when they cast the
righteous out from among them.
Employers frequently review the credit ratings of potential employees, what
employees say on their Facebook pages can have negative effects on their
employment.How is this any different?If conservatives
and those offended by what happened to Eich seek to establish legal boundaries
between personal lives and employment, we've got a long way to go, with
attendant cries of liberties lost by employers.
Scott Lively; the American religious wacko -- who is claiming to be behind
Uganda and Russia’s homophobia and American evangelical extremists Tony
Perkins and Peter Sprigg -- should be thrown into jail for perpetrating hate
crimes against the gay community!Scott Lively is perhaps directly
responsible; for suicides within and violence against -- the gay community! His
evil; based on a fictional religious cult is beyond words --!
Einstein stated in a letter recently auctioned that the bible was a collection
of primitive legends. He said believing in God was childish and he as a Jew is
no different than another person and not chosen by God.
Van Spakovsky said, "The people who were pushing for Brendan Eich to be
fired, they clearly want to put in a standard of conformity ... " No we aren't pushing for conformity. We want a society where people can
have their views, but individuals will be held accountable for acting on views
that diminish others or discriminate or harm others. There always
will be people who don't agree with marriage equality, or same-sex
marriage. So what? There are still people who hate blacks, too. We simply
cannot legislate thoughts and beliefs. BUT, we know that Prop8 was not only
immoral and deliberately harmful, it was also unconstitutional. Committing
harmful acts and funding the people who harm others will not be tolerated.
Believe what you want, but your actions will be scrutinized to ensure a better
Being left-handed – being black or being gay is just as natural. It is a
sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart
and be loved in return ... it is something that should be celebrated! If it is
love between two guys or two girls … all the better … it takes even
more courage to defend that LOVE!
Tony Perkins and his The Family Research Council's opposition to gay rights
have landed the outfit onto a list of "hate groups,” like the KKK.
Christian colleges should be classified as hate groups and shut down. UK Prime
Minister Cameron is facing the issue of religious extremism; as we speak …
regarding homophobia -- being taught to children at churches and schools.
Campaign finance laws will have to be re-written to keep donations secret. It
will be the only way to protect donors from punitive tactics that force their
views on others.
libs and tolerance are like peanut butter and jam. epitome of pc gone mad.
Most disurbing that this kind of corporate extortion becomes the norm. Recently
it played out in Arizona in such a flagrant and deplorable way. There have been
other examples where the strident activists shouting slogans about
"freedom" and "rights" for themselves demonstrate that what they
demand for themselves cannot be permitted for any who oppose their ideas, and
merits a punitive response. The height of hypocrisy is found in this
discrimination and intolerance that professes to be based in inclusive love and
universal tolerance. No longer satisfied with "live and let live", the
destructive intent is now revealed. Resistance is futile.
Mr. Eich left on his own volition. Nobody forced him out. People opposing him
were exercising THEIR 1st Amendment rights. Should they be silenced?
Several commenters semm to forget that upholding your own beliefs does not mean
you necessarily denigrate people who believe otherwise. I believe in God but I
don't hate those who don't. In this case, a man donated to an
organization he believed in---Opinions differ--hate doesn't have to become
This is not about "public scrutiny" but about the willingness of the
left to employ bullying tactics to not just intimidate, but to destroy any and
all who disagree with them.It is a cynical and hypocritical epitome
of "tolerance for me, but not for thee" which is a hallmark of the
liberals.If Mr. Eich had contributed the same amount of money to a
pro-homosexual cause and anyone attacked him like this, he would instantly be
defended by the news media, politicians and celebrities, and also by
conservatives.The Alinsky tactic to "Pick the target, freeze it,
personalize it, and polarize it." is effective. Even when it distorts the
truth and tramples on our freedom of speech.The Mafia-like tactics
of the militant homosexual activists must not be tolerated. Their one way
version of "tolerance" must be rejected, condemned and repealed.Otherwise, we have reached George Orwell's era where "All
animals are equal, but some animals are more equal."
Oh, please. Freedom of speech is not dead... but we apparently have a large
segment of society that believes there should be no accountability for
one's words (depending on the issue, of course).When the bottom
line performance and marketshare of Mozilla became an issue because of
Eich's speech, the Board and/or Eich exercised accountability. This is
Business 101 - what is more important, defending the views of one employee, or
the economic health of the company?It may be that Eich and those who
view things as he does feel picked on, but if the other side did not have a
majority of the public's backing, they wouldn't be losing this PR war
now, and they wouldn't be called to account for their previous speech.Social understandings change and evolve. Oh, and "freedom
"Does Mozilla CEO ousting portend new era of public scrutiny?"I doubt it.Pressure groups have been able to influence corporate
actions for quite some time.They just have to be organized and
committed. It helps if they're "loud and proud" too.Ralph Nader was able to stop production of the Corvair over 40 years ago.And the LGBT community was able to get this ex-Mozilla honcho
terminated.Nothing new there.
Here's a list of some companies conservatives have called for and launched
boycotts against:Girl Scouts (cookies)Delta Air LinesCoca ColaHome DepotIntercontinental HotelsUPSNabisco

Way back the NAACP was pressured to disclose it's' donors so that
their people could face the same discrimination.
@MACDONALDBANKI noticed that your first comment has only one like.
Your other three comments don't have any. Did you forget to "like"
your last three comments?I am sorry to see that you have reached
your limit of 4 comments. I found them most entertaining.Einstein
was very smart when it came to physics. He was old but I don't think he was
around when the Bible was written. If you accurately stated his opinion then it
is just that, an opinion. I can quote all kinds of really smart people saying
stupid things. Obama once said that he had visited 57 states and only had two
more to visit (they wouldn't let him go to Hawaii).I have also
learned that all it takes to be guilty of hate speech is to say something that
liberals hate, especially if they cannot refute it. They really hate that.
