The Purity of the Volk must be restored.

William Saletan has a compelling piece in Slate today:

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.

 

But why stop there? According to Wikipedia, 7,001,084 people voted for Prop 8. Why do any of those people still have jobs? Shouldn’t they all be forced to resign? And why should they have the privilege of living in California at all? I say round them up and move them someplace where they won’t do any harm.

Oh, and let’s find every media figure, writer or actor or musician, who voted for Prop 8.  Surely they’re a special danger.  Someone should start an investigation — form a committee to investigate un-American activities like that, expose the malefactors, and make them identify anyone else they know who was involved.  Let’s make it clear that differing on these opinions is unacceptable. Like Eich, they should be blacklisted and never allowed to work again.

I understood Saletan's article to be Swiftian satire. The problem is: who can tell nowadays?

And THAT's what's scary. The New Class Thought Police is becoming a hybrid between the Puritans in Salem and the Jacobins in France.

This little episode should be very instructive. The LA Times published an article which named names. The next time someone starts crying about the Hollywood Blacklist and how courageous people went to jail or lost their jobs for not naming names, remember this sordid little episode in leftist double standards.

Everyone gets the message. Whether a career killing comes after petitions by gay activists, or a putsch or a fatwa, the results are quite similar. Fear. Fear of reprisal, especially at work. History agrees.

From June 30 to July 2, 1934, Hitler's goons carried out his Röhm-Putsch. As part of the putsch he disposed of prominent conservative anti-Nazis (such as former Chancellor Kurt von Schleicher and Gustav Ritter von Kahr, who had suppressed Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch in 1923). This was also named "Night of the long Knives".

The "Long Knives" was wildly successful in reducing resistance to Nazi plans. Non-Nazis became fearful, and we know now how Stockholm Syndrome operates.

Saul Alinsky, Al Armandariaz , plus the Mazillo Board of Directors - advocate such tactics. They work, too!

Er, folks, the "Slate" article was SATIRE. It's real point was that the "progressives" will make a lot of noise to LOOK as if they're "fighting for gay rights" by shutting up people, but will never actually do anything - like boycotting corporations which sell stuff they'd like to buy - which will inconvenience them.

Yet more evidence of SDNWOTN - sarcasm doesn't work on the 'net...not because the writer was unclear or the readers stupid, but because no matter how absurd you think you make the satire, someone out there believes just that seriously and already put it online.

Charlie, you were short and to the point. Nice article. Whether a radical call to arms or a tongue in cheek admonishment, those words are dangerous none-the-less. Genocide happens all the time, repeating the evil lessons of the past, e.g. CAR viollence building toward a Rawanda like explosion. Usually, an easily identifiable minority suffers in the end. Not because some leader takes them down an evil path but rather the mass of people feel threatened, wronged and ignored. The evil leader simply surfs the wave of mass anger. As with many of the social changes ongoing, there is real resentment which is being bottled up caused by the actions of a minority thinking they have an unassailable moral highground. And they do, until the day they don't, with consequences we all believe can't happen here, until they do. Attacking people's livelihood, core values and religous beliefs is dangerous business. And p.s. Big government won't be able to stop it if an explosion happens. Let's all recognize we need to govern/restrain ourselves and stop playing a very dangerous political game.

Sure, why not. In fact let's put them all in concentration camps. At least it would put a smile on liberal's faces for a day or two.

Can they drop me off in a state that doesn't tax the hell out of us? :)

Sometimes it seems the new class of liberal is going out of their way to try to act the opposite of what they say. Irony dogs their heels like a shadow on a sunny day.

The new breed of feminist acts like a combination of a racial supremacist and a nun, yet they claim to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, and think people who claim to be neither a man nor a woman are just fine. That's cool but don't show them a Playboy cover because that's too weird for public discourse.

In principle, gaydom has declared a silent boycott of Islam and are therefore Islamophobes. They'd come right out and say so but they like breathing; better to go after Christians. Pussy Riot got prison, but had they targeted a mosque instead they might be dead.

All of the Middle East should boycott Mozilla, praise be to whatever.

The outrage over this has nothing to do with gay marraige. It has to do with the threat of private political activities being used as the basis for job termination. If Dems decide to use threats of job termination for private support for political positions to they dont agree with, then those of us who oppose them should use it too. For example:
A small business can see who in their employ supports Obamacare or who gives money to any Dem cause and terminate them. We might also just look to see who is a registered Dem and terminate them. If the dems go down this path, small business owners should attack in kind. Considering how much Obama is disliked by small business, I'd say this is a winning strategy for us. The Dems shouldn't then whine about a strategy they developed.

No it wouldn't --as always with Liberals it's always a one way street.

That strategy won't work, as they and their allies in government have far more authority than any businessman, small or otherwise.

Fox, in a Special Report last night called "Enemies of the State", presented four cases of government abuse and overreach: a Nevada rancher, a Texas oilman, a True the Vote activist, and Gibson guitar. All hounded by multiple regulatory agencies. True the Vote's Ehrenreich also had to contend with the IRS.

Do you really think those government bodies will sit out any action targeting supporters of big government?
