Brendan Eich: A Warning Shot and Call to Arms

Brendan Eich, CEO of Mozilla, was forced to step down due to outrage amongst his employees over his $1,000 support of Californians Proposition 8. Slate is calling for the expulsion of every employee and executive that contributed to Proposition 8 in every industry in the country.

Thirty-seven companies in the database are linked to more than 1,300 employees who gave nearly $1 million in combined contributions to the campaign for Prop 8. Twenty-five tech companies are linked to 435 employees who gave more than $300,000. Many of these employees gave $1,000 apiece, if not more. Some, like Eich, are probably senior executives.

Why do these bigots still have jobs? Let’s go get them.

The Progressives and Socialists that comprise the Democrat Party have become increasingly radicalized during the Obama Administration. I no longer believe America is a “safe” place for tolerant groups like Christians, Capitalists, Libertarians, and Constitutionalists. We no longer have a Constitution to protect us from radical authoritarians. We no longer have a culture that abhors the sort of insanity witnessed within the ranks of Mozilla over the last eight days. This modern form of social fascism places each of us outside of a moral social contract and directly into a perpetual state of war. If we do not destroy and silence the Progressives in this country, they have made it crystal clear that they will try to destroy and silence us. This puts us in a terribly uncomfortable position, since we desire nothing more than to live in a country where each individual is equally protected under the law and where there is no threat of arbitrary harassment of people due to their religious, political, or sociological beliefs.  Let this serve as a warning however, that our tolerance of intolerant people puts our liberty and our lives at risk.

What did Brendan Eich do? He supported legislation that maintained the traditional, religious definition of marriage in California. The result?  He is called anti-gay and a bigot and forced from his employment. The radicals are incredibly excited about their success.

Good for Mozilla, good for OkCupid, and good for everyone, really. Now let’s do racism next! Valleywag.

Eich had not done much to really distance himself from his past views on gay marriage and LGBT issues, which likely didn’t help his chances of sticking it out at Mozilla. The maker of Firefox prides itself on embracing diversity and equality, so keeping Eich in the CEO spot without a clear and unambiguous rejection of his earlier expressed viewpoint on Prop 8 would’ve stood out as fundamentally contradictory.

Essentially, if you hold a view that Progressives disagree with, then your job is a risk. I can’t tolerate such astounding intolerance. Can you? If we, as a nation, allow this sort of thing to continue; if we continue being tolerant of intolerance, we will lose our country. This was not the first tragedy of its kind and it will not be the last. The question we must ask ourselves is, how far are we willing to go to put an end to this fascist movement on the left? Since we are bound by our strong libertarian and constitutional principles, the avenues for fighting fascism are narrow. I feel like a pacifist confronted with unmitigated violence. Do I sacrifice my principles to preserve my way of life, my liberty? Or do I recognize that the only way to deal with people who have declared war upon me, is to declare war on them? This is truly a difficult time in America. How we respond (or do not respond) may decide the future of our historical “American way of life”.

    Excellent piece. You are right on the mark. Ever since B.O. and his radical bunch took over power there has been a tremendous acceleration of the moral and cultural decay of American society.

    Where are the Pastor’s and the Church?

    • People are scared to death to take on the Progressives. If you’re Tea Party, they’ll send the IRS after you. Nosy Journalist? Justice Department on their way. Pro-Traditional Marriage? Well then the fascists just rise up from the grassroots. It’s insane.
