An example of hate speech against companies that supported proposition 8.

April 20 2014

OPINION:

 

 

Remember the fuss about California’s defeated ‘proposition 8’ a number of years ago? Well according to this articles author those who dared give financially to that law project should be punished.

“Purge the Bigots”

 

“Brendan Eich is just the beginning. Let’s oust everyone who donated to the campaign against gay marriage.”

 

“By William Saletan”

“April 4 2014 8:12 AM”

 

 

“Brendan Eich is gone. The creator of JavaScript and co-founder of mozilla.org has quit as Mozilla’s CEO, forced out by the uproar over a donation he made six years ago to a ballot measure against gay marriage. There’s no record of Eich discriminating against gay employees—“I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness,” says the company’s chairwoman, Mitchell Baker. In fact, last week, Eich pledged,”

 

“I am committed to ensuring that Mozilla is, and will remain, a place that includes and supports everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, economic status, or religion.”

 

“You will see exemplary behavior from me toward everyone in our community, no matter who they are; and the same toward all those whom we hope will join, and for those who use our products. Mozilla’s inclusive health benefits policies will not regress in any way. And I will not tolerate behavior among community members that violates our Community Participation Guidelines or (for employees) our inclusive and non-discriminatory employment policies.”

 

“But that wasn’t enough. A revolt among Mozilla staffers, compounded by pressure from software developers, outrage on Twitter and a boycott movement spearheaded by OkCupid, has driven Eich out. Baker, having accepted Eich’s resignation, offers this apology: “We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.”

 

“Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But let’s not stop here. If we’re serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.”

 

“More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet. (Click the link that says, “Download CSV.”) Each row lists the donor’s employer. If you organize the data by company, you can add up the total number of donors and dollars that came from people associated with that company.”

 

“The first thing you’ll notice, if you search for Eich, is that he’s the only Mozilla employee who gave to the campaign for Prop 8. His $1,000 was more than canceled out by three Mozilla employees who donated to the other side.”

 

“The next thing you’ll notice is that other companies, including other tech firms, substantially outscored Mozilla in pro-Prop 8 contributions attributed to their employees. That includes Adobe, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, and Yahoo, as well as Disney, DreamWorks, Gap, and Warner Bros.”

 

“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.”

 

“To organize the next stage of the purge, I’ve compiled the financial data into three tables. Here’s the first table. It shows 37 companies whose names, in one form or another, appear next to a total of at least $10,000 (per company) in donations to Prop 8. The list isn’t complete, but it’s a start.”

 

(Table 1)

 

“The next table, below, shows 25 tech companies whose employees donated to the campaign for Prop 8. Again, the list isn’t exhaustive. But every one of these companies outscored Mozilla in associated contributions to Prop 8.”

 

(Table 2)

 

 

 

“The last table, below, shows several other companies that didn’t hit the $10,000 threshold but did surpass Mozilla in money for Prop 8. Some of them might surprise you.”

 

(Table 3)

 

“The numbers in these tables don’t represent contributions from the companies. (All the money came from individuals.) Nor do they reflect the balance of contributions that came from a company’s employees. (I haven’t added up the donations that went to the campaign against Prop 8.) A quick glance here and there suggests that in many cases, the balance of contributions from these companies went against the ballot measure.”

 

 

“But those caveats are true of Mozilla, too. And we’re not cutting Mozilla any slack, are we?”

 

“If we’re serious about taking down corporate officers who supported Proposition 8, and boycotting employers who promote them, we’d better get cracking on the rest of the list. Otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks.”

============================

 

 

I have considered two views about this story.

 

 

1 It’s a satire of leftist idiocy, ironically by a supporter of gay marriage.

 

2 A deliberate attack of multiple companies whose employees supported legislation against the theory of gay rights and marriage.

 

 

My own opinion of this story is thus.

 

It is a attack against multiple businesses and those who are employed by them because they supported a legal maneuver against the political left. However it should be noted that the author of this article left out a number of ceo’s names of each company, contact information of the businesses, listing of those who gave money in support / protection of ‘tradition marriage’, etc.

 

 

Had he done so… He could be, SHOULD BE sued along with his employer slade for any number legal subjects involving the employment and safety of those in those companies and employees elsewhere.

 

Those in the political left forget there are reasons why Christians, Conservatives and many others don’t believe in their propaganda. Not because we are all a bunch of ‘uneducated rednecks’ or that we don’t have gay friends or family members. It’s because we are awakening to the realization that forcing or enforcing an entire society to conform to THEIR way of doing things is unethical and totally irrational.

 

At one time in Americas past no one cared about gay men sleeping with other gay men. Lesbians sleeping with other lesbians. Such things were done in secrecy and behind closed doors.

 

Now, those in the politicalized, ideological left are pushing their insane agendas on ALL peoples all over the world and for what benefit?

 

As for satire… When we define that word we find…

 

satire is defined as:

 

“satire [sat-ahyuhr]”

 

“noun”

 

“1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.”

 

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/satire

 

 

The articles author did not ‘expose’ or ‘denounce’ his ideological brothers and sisters. It created a list to go after those of us in the companies listed to be punished by fellow leftist fascists.

 

At least with one liberal author he is recognizing the danger that his ‘colleagues’ are producing online…

This war of words is going to continue for many years to come. My response to those in the political / ideological left is simple. Respond, Rebuke those who want to punish people like me for not believing in the theory of gay rights / marriage. WHY? Because I DONOT have to agree with your position or theirs! I SHOULD be allowed to uphold my own beliefs EVEN IF they are ‘intolerant’, ‘bigoted’ against the societal norm of the left.

 

 

The US Gov has made a serious mistake. It has allowed itself to be used and abused by a group of people that take their sexual choices and have created a neo-ethnic group out of fetishes and lust. And out of those legal arguments allowing new laws and rules to be set up in American employment, law and more not for the benefit of WE THE PEOPLE but out of the desires and activities of various fetishists.

 

Otherwise… So much from Freedom in general and so much for the idea of ‘liberalism’ when their own followers are willing to punish the rest of us not because we are wrong in our views, religions, morality. Because we donot serve their masters and mistresses in slavery and foolishness.

 

 

Call back your ‘dogs of war’ so that I can live in peace at my employment, church and everywhere I chose to live or visit.

 

Donot force those of us who are free of your weirdness to become ‘militants’ against the very system we helped create for not a specific group but for all people.
