The Soviet-style purge of Brendan Eich is the latest attack of what leftist political comedian Bill Maher calls the Gay Mafia. Maher, a left libertarian who combines a visceral atheism and libertinism with an admiration for Ron Paul, called out the persecutors of Eich:
"I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked. I really do."
The evidence of this mafia's power is evident in the constant howls of outrage that greet any disagreement, however mild, with homosexuality or the gay (or is it "queer"?) lifestyle. Before Brendan Eich, there was the hapless Juan Pablo Galavis - picked out of Hispanic obscurity to serve as the first Latino star of the idiotic, yet popular TV show "The Bachelor". Galavis - a hilariously stereotypical combination of an arrogant, shallow Latino playboy (he compared impregnating his girlfriend to scoring a goal) and a dumb, clueless jock was roundly denounced and thrown off his path to fame when he posted on Twitter that gays "are more pervert [sic] in a sense".
Before Galavis, Duck commander Phil Robertson was roundly denounced for his crude, yet theologically accurate comments on homosexuality. And seems like only yesterday - in fact it was in 1995 - that House majority leader Dick Armey referred to the openly gay congressman Barney Frank as "Barney Fag". Armey then had to blubber out a tearful apology, claiming to have misspoken.
Sometimes the gay mafia (which is not composed solely of homosexuals, but includes quite a few heterosexual leftists) goes after entire countries. Case in point: the West's outrage when Putin's Russia dared to pass laws shielding children from homosexual propaganda. Western leaders refused to attend the Sochi Olympics and Western news networks never ceased to characterize Russia's protection of its children and heritage as evil and oppressive.
In today's America, any denunciation, nay, disapproval of homosexuality is a thought crime, punishable by social ostracism, forced apologies, loss of jobs, and unrelenting harassment. I remember having lunch with my American undergrad classmates about eight years ago and telling them that in the Russian language, there is no such word as "straight" when referring to sexual orientation (a word that only came into Russian usage in the last decade or so). Rather, in Russian, that word is "normal". You should have seen how fast their faces paled and how they began backing away from me, while looking over their shoulders. Like another Russian Jew used to say: What a country!
Brendan Eich appears to be a traditionalist and libertarian. His venial sin was his financial contribution to reinstate Proposition 8's ban on same-sex marriage. His mortal sin was his financial contribution to the 1992 Buchanan campaign.
For the past 40 or so years political correctness (PC) has transformed this country into an homogenized, generic, amalgamized group of people. We want a perfect society with the assurance that no one is the subject of another's opinions. We embrace the other to a degree that we forget that we are the other to others. We are less free because of it. It is not a strength but a weakness and can be perilous to this nation.
Over at the Forbes site, one Ian McCullough indicates something other than a gay Mafia. McCullough concedes that Eich was forced out but explains the cause as one of employee and customer pressure, to wit,
"Although the donation had been known about by some for quite some time, it didn’t garner much attention until now. Once word of it became widely circulated, the knowledge led to employees threatening their own resignations, users choosing a different web browser (which would mean less revenue from Google and other add-on downloads), volunteers saying that they would no longer invest time in Mozilla projects, and donors announcing that they wouldn’t give money to the Mozilla Foundation. That created a serious risk of Mozilla losing earnings and resources. Mozilla was going to become less valuable — and that’s the precise opposite result that Eich was charged with generating."
McCullough also says the board of Mozilla could have been "proactive" about the donation before appointing Eich CEO.
It's not a gay Mafia we're dealing with, but a gay Fifth Column, or a gay Invasion of the Body Snatchers, perhaps.
Yesterday I read an article stating that 38 of the top 40 advertisers in the country will no longer advertise on the Rush Limbaugh program. Its hard to imagine that corporations would not want to advertise on the most listened radio program in the country. Even profits and the bottom line are trumped by far left dogma. In the current environment, a Christian business owner must abandon his beliefs and provide contraception, abortion or gay "wedding" services, but the largest advertisers in the country can conspire to deny a business over an ideological difference.
Yes, let's not forget that some of the loudest voices condemning Putin were Glenn Beck and his idiot friends on "conservative" talk radio. Big corporations are just as much of a problem as they seem to have no problem imposing all this Leftist stuff.
