The briefly-tenured CEO of Mozilla steps down amidst a flap about his support of (and rfusal to disavow) his support of Proposition 8 in California back in 2008. The Tolerance Community won't tolerate alternative viewpoints, which should be news to no one.
However, we can find a bit of pushback from the left, as well as an interesting bit of cinematic history - Joe Cannon reminds us that in the film version of Ray Bradbury's famous Fahrenheit 451 the powers that will be ran televison ads which included such exhortations as "Be Tolerant Today".
Well. When Michael Moore made Fahrenheit 911 it was all good for the authoritarian progressives. But Fahrenheit 8? Not even happening.
And since we are flashing back to Ray Bradbury, let's flash back to the power of the mob as demonstrated by the #HasJustineLandedYet fracas.
BRAINLOCK: Which state's motto is "Be Tolerant or Die"? Yeah, and wattsa motto with you?
BOTH MAY BE TRUE: AllahPundit explains that California presents a public record of all donations above $100 to state ballot measures and that the LA Times put up a searchable database in (guessing from non-existent datelines) 2009. (Bored lefties can quickly find some Apple or Google Prop 8 supporters to purge.)
However Fox News has an opinion piece noting that the IRS allegedly leaked a national donor list of supporters of the National Organizaton for Marriage.
These stories may be complementary rather than contradictory, especially since the Fox piece does not allege anything about California specifically. However, some people are conflating the two. FWIW, Mr. Eich of Mozilla posted on his outing in 2012, linked to the LA Times database, and cited the California law on reported donations.
ONGOING BRAINLOCK: Andrew Sullivan is worried that "LGBT Movement Becoming Like Religious Right". I am straining to remember the CEOs that lost their jobs due to their pro-choice or anti-gay-marriage positions.
And I am not talking about politicians, most of whom with national aspirations feel obliged to hew to their party's line.
