CEO Ousted by Thought Police

Mozilla co-founder experiences “tolerance.”

Mozilla co-founder and new CEO Brendan Eich resigned Thursday following an uproar over practicing his First Amendment right by supporting California’s Proposition 8 in 2008, defining marriage traditionally as between a man and a woman. “I don’t want to talk about my personal beliefs because I kept them out of Mozilla all these 15 years we’ve been going,” Eich said Wednesday. Others weren’t so benevolent. Eich’s $1,000 donation was made public in 2012 thanks to the LA Times, and proponents of same-sex marriage, including company employees, colluded to demand Eich’s ousting lest he “make an unequivocal statement of support for marriage equality,” a petition reads. Note that, just like the Chick-fil-A controversy, he’s being cast as a bigot for simply believing in the traditional view of marriage; nobody’s accusing Eich of practicing discrimination. Yet supporters pride themselves as shepherds of “tolerance” and “inclusiveness”? Interestingly, lefty Andrew Sullivan was one of the few openly homosexual individuals to denounce this ridiculous lynching: “If this is the gay rights movement today … then count me out,” he said. By the way, until 2012, Barack Obama was on Eich’s side. Just saying.
