Gay RIghts Bullies

Brendan Eich lasted ten days as CEO of Mozilla. He was pressured into resigning because, like president Obama, in 2008 they supported Proposition 8, which was an anti-gay rights measure (as pro same-sex marriage people call it). 

Michael Hiltzel of the Los Angeles Times, believes the discussion should focus on Eigh's right to be CEO of Mozilla. It should not focus on the fact that Obama held the same belief back in the day, and nobody has called for his resignation. Of course, Obama changed his view when it became politically expedient, or he "evolved" for the gay vote.

So the US gay rights community is saying that you don't deserve to be gainfully employed if you don't support their beliefs and behavior, even when it goes against your morals or religious beliefs. 

When Eich's $1000 donation in support of Proposition 8 was discovered (someone obviously made it 'come out of the closet,' so to speak) the war against Eich began.

An online dating website, OKCupid asked its followers to stop using Mozilla's Firefox browser and Credo Mobile, a wireless company, received around 50,000 signatures demanding Eich's resignation. In a letter posted by OKCupid they wrote: Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame and frustration are our enemies and we wish them nothing but failure." How freaking tolerant, and how convenient to interpret one's views that way.

Executive Chairwoman, Mitchell Baker (now there's a confusing first name that belies one's sexual identity) said: "Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and this week, we didn't live up to it."

Ms. Baker also spoke about freedom of speech and equality, and believes the latter trumps the former: "Equality is necessary for meaningful speech and you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard."

Yes, for idiots like Mitch Baker, it can be very hard, especially if you disregard the first ten Amendments of the Constitution, often referred to as the Bill of Rights.

But leftists think that anyone who opposes their beliefs, which, after all, are the only fair ones to be considered, ought to be shut up. They want Rush Limbaugh, for example, to be thrown off the air, because he's wrong and they're right and he has no rights to disagree, for after all, they're right.

Obama told his top military officials that if they don't believe in the  "Don't ask, don't tell" policy, they should hand in their resignation. In other words, fall in, or fall out if you think differently than him. So he has led the attack not on conservatives alone, but on the United States Constitution, and he shows it with his disregard for what it says and offers.

Thankfully, there are a few brave souls in the gay community, like Tammy Bruce, who believe these attacks on individual beliefs and the demand for their dismissals is wrong. I concur and applaud her.

In my latest novel, a New York reporter is taken hostage by terrorists. If POTUS refuses to release 3 Gitmo jihadists, the reporter will die in 24 hours—they will behead him and show it on the Internet. There is only one way out but the clock is ticking . . .
