Shocker: Social Left Now On a Crusade to Force Head of Mozilla to Step Down Due to 2006 Donation of $1,000 to Prop 8

They're in favor of freedom-- the freedom to think, act, speak, believe and be precisely as they instruct you to be.

First the dating site OKCupid began a campaign -- apparently on the front page of its website -- suggesting a boycott of Mozilla (makers of the popular FireFox browser) for the crime of having agree with Barack Obama on gay marriage in 2006.

Then, of course, MSNBC began campaigning against him, calling his political donation a "black mark" in an otherwise-acceptable Stasi file.

Now, get this, Mozilla employees are tweeting that their CEO must step down.


Here's a fun thought experiment:

What if the CEO fired the employees demanding he resign?

Can you imagine the firestorm?

I'm inclined to actually support his doing so, to illustrate the egregious double-standard on display here. Someone with a dissenting right-wing view? Purge 'em, with a million cheerlearders.

But someone with fired over a leftwing view? Why, the heavens would shake from the gnashing of teeth.

It would be a curious thing to watch the fired employee explain the following:

1. That I shouldn't have been fired for expressing my honestly-held political belief.

2. But my boss should have been fired for his own honestly-held political belief. Because, because -- No H8, Serious You Guys!!!

I really would like this vicious tribal hypocrisy put into sharp relief by a stunt firing like this.

Not because I support political firings -- I oppose them, strenuously -- but I would like the people calling for political firings to maybe understand their own interest in not calling for political firings every five minutes.

Of course, that will never happen. The left has laid down the rule that their political rights shall never been infringed by an economic penalty, because McCarthyism. While they meanwhile demand the exact same sort of McCarthyism for everyone else.
