LOS ANGLES, April 5, 2014 — Hannibal Lecter has escaped from prison and remade himself as a leader of the LGBT movement. Equality for all extends to behavior, and gay leftists have shown an ability to devour innocent human beings with every bit as much brutality as their straight counterparts.
Take one hardworking CEO, add some barbecue sauce, and throw away the carcass when done.
Gay rights cannibals (gannibles) forced out Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich due to his support for a 2008 California proposition banning gay marriage. Mozilla’s most notable product is the Firefox web browser.
For the purpose of clarity, nobody alleged that Eich discriminated against anybody in the workplace or created a hostile working environment. What he did was quietly donate $1,000 of his own money to Proposition 8 because of his own personal beliefs. He participated legally in the political process. This was too much for the “gannibals.” His public actions on the topic were zero. His private thoughts were enough to have him removed.
Since the gannibals will not allow anybody who has ever expressed anti-gay marriage views to be a CEO, there is only one logical conclusion. Perhaps it is time for Barack Obama to resign as President of the United States.
Forget his record of failure on everything from Obamacare to Russia. Forget his many corruption scandals including Benghazi. This is solely about gay marriage.
The same year Eich was donating money to the Proposition 8 cause, candidate Obama was publicly insisting that he was personally against gay marriage. He claimed that marriage was between one man and one woman, citing his Christian faith.
For those expecting intellectual honesty out of a hypocritical movement, Hannibal Lecter does not become a vegan just because a few bored whites on college campuses declare something trendy. President Obama is black, and guilty white liberals will only target other whites due to a combination of fear and political correctness. If the Mozilla CEO were black, he might still have his job. Despite 70 percent support among blacks for Proposition 8, the gannibals have only protested against white opponents.
Even if one removes the racial component, which the left depends on, Obama would be given a free pass for having “evolved” on the issue. He supported gay marriage during his 2012 reelection. The problem with this narrative is that it is completely false. Obama was for gay marriage when he initially ran for the Illinois State Senate in 2004. He was for it before he was against it before he was for it.
It is fair to question Obama’s sincerity since his position changed with the political climate he was in. He remained against gay marriage until Vice President Joe Biden came out in favor of it before the 2012 election. This forced Obama’s hand, since he was perfectly content to push this issue past the election in the same manner he did Benghazi and flexibility with Vladimir Putin.
Despite his unprincipled stand, Obama should not resign solely due to this issue. His record of failure is another matter, but on this one issue of gay marriage, his resignation is not the solution.
Brendan Eich should have stayed. The Duck Dynasty guys stood up to the gannibal lynch mob. They fought back and won. For those who think the culture wars are over, ask the good people at Cracker Barrel and the less likable people running the Arts and Entertainment Network. The D2 family fought back against the bullies and beat them like a drum. Eich surrendered faster than a Frenchman.
Eich could have delivered a passionate speech about how tolerance of all means exactly that. He could have said that anybody who discriminated against gays at his company would be immediately fired. He then could have said that anybody who discriminated against somebody for quietly disagreeing with gay marriage would also be fired. He could have asked for volunteers to step forward and resign their own jobs. Most of the gannibals would have disappeared faster than anonymous commenters on internet message boards forced to use their real names.
With plenty of talented people looking for work, the gannibals would have been forced to shut up and do their jobs, a novel concept among activists. A company is not a college campus. Eich could have reminded the world of this.
Instead he threw himself on his sword. He sacrificed himself to the gannibals. That was his choice, an unfortunate one that will lead to more gannibalism.
The answer is not more firings, boycotts, and protests. The solution is fewer of them. The only way for this to happen is for conservatives to stand up to gannibals and other leftist activists everywhere.
Otherwise, conservatives will continue to be devoured. The gannibals will then go after moderates who stay on the sidelines choosing not to get involved in the culture wars. With the left, you are either for or against them. Eich was low-hanging fruit. The quiet moderates will come next, since the Edmund Burke expression remains true: Evil flourishes when good people do nothing.
Eich chose to cave, but the attack against him was evil. Will good people stand up?
