Brendan Eich fired

In the mythical land of inclusion and diversity, things are not as diverse and inclusive as we are led to believe. Diversity and inclusion is only for those who think along the same lines as the body politic of the powers that be. If you don't subscribe to the zeitgeist of the ruling elite and believe in the same thing as the thugs who enforce their agenda, then you are a an outsider and subject to having your career and life purged, of course, for the sake of diversity.

Enter one Brendan Eich who was, read was, the CEO of the company who owns the Firefox browser, Mozilla. He has now been forced to resign that position simply because he gave a $1,000 contribution in 2008 to the National Organization for Marriage which supported Proposition 8 in California. Proposition 8 was a ballot measure in 2008 defining marriage as between one man and one woman which passed 52% to 48% but was eventually essentially struck down by the Supreme court.

That's it. Brendan Eich was for all intents and purposes, fired for a $1,000 donation to a cause he supported. It was a legal, legitimate cause, voted on by the people of California. But Eich never protested. He never held a sign. He never wrote an editorial. He never danced in a heterosexual pride parade. He never engaged in gay bashing of any kind. He simply wrote a check, and now he is out of a job.

By the way, Brendan Eich is also the creator of the JavaScript programming language with which today's entire internet experience would not be possible.

Brendan Eich committed a thoughtcrime. He supports the traditional definition of marriage. For that, he has now joined the ranks of the unemployed. [...]

Obviously Mozilla does not believe in equality or freedom of speech. If it did, it would have defended its CEO and noted that many of its employees agree with him, not just the other side. It would have asserted that both sides deserve a hearing.

Firefox surrendered to the OKCupid mob, which loves free speech so much that it has successfully deprived a man of his income because of his beliefs — beliefs which are not fringe, but are shared by roughly half the country or more. Beliefs which he once shared with the left’s own champion, Barack Obama.

I know many readers here and many writers here support gay marriage. Are y’all cool with depriving someone of their ability to work if they disagree? That’s where we are right now. They tried it with Chick-Fil-A and bombed. But they have succeeded in the tech field, which drives much of our culture forward. Into what?
