Barber: Obama Is Like Josef Goebbels

“Crushing dissent and terrorizing into silence those with traditional values is no small task. Serving up a palatable fascism cocktail cannot be effectively accomplished without following a specific recipe. First, start with genuinely hateful and racist remarks by people like Sterling. Totally destroy them both publicly and privately and then move on to those with mainstream beliefs on such things ...

HomoQuotable – Michelangelo Signorile

“When given an opportunity to apologize for his Prop 8 donation after it got attention earlier this month, a week after he was named CEO, Eich refused, and even implied to The Guardian that he and people like him were an asset at the company since Mozilla is global and anti-gay regimes are prevalent around the world, using the example ...

Andrew Sullivan On Sterling’s Ban

“If Brendan Eich had made comments telling his friends to keep away from faggots, if he’d used any such terminology or had ever been shown to have discriminated against gays in the workplace or in his daily interactions, then his case would be very similar. But no such comments are in the public or private record, and there’s zero evidence ...

HomoQuotable – John Aravosis

“It was only a few weeks ago that America was lecturing the gay community about its intolerance for intolerance, for objecting to a bigot (in fact, an anti-gay activist, Brendan Eich) running a major American corporation (in this case, the Mozilla Foundation). Republicans, including gay conservatives, were particularly upset that anyone would judge a man’s job performance, especially the man ...

FRC Prays For Brendan Eich

Yesterday the Family Research Council’s prayer targets were former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich and former Fox sportscaster Craig James, who was supposedly fired by the network for opposing same-sex marriage.

HomoQuotable – William Saletan

“Losing your job for being gay is different from losing your job for opposing gay marriage. Unlike homosexuality, opposition to same-sex marriage is a choice, and it directly limits the rights of other people. But the rationales for getting rid of Eich bear a disturbing resemblance to the rationales for getting rid of gay managers and employees. He caused dissension. ...

Pat Robertson: If Brendan Eich Is Wrong Then The Bible Is Full Of Hate

“Here this man at Mozilla, Eich, had given $1,000 about six or seven years ago – $1,000 – to a proposition .And somebody came around and said, ‘Will you contribute?’ And he said, ‘Here’s a grand, get off my back.’ I mean, that’s probably all that it amounted to. But instead of that, he’s being forced out by gay activists, ...

Sullivan Doubles-Down On Mozilla Flap

Yesterday Andrew Sullivan acknowledged that the resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was not the work of gay activists but came as the result of pressure from the “techie straight left.” (Ben Shapiro appears to concede that point as well.) But Sullivan remains outraged. A civil rights movement without toleration is not a civil rights movement; it is a cultural ...
