Anyone who gave money to the campaign to elect Barack Obama for President in 2008 should step down or be fired, you bigot. Go on, get the hell out and further more – shame on you. Bigots. – by Rodney Lee Conover
Just as CEO Brendan Eich was forced out at Mozilla for his support of Proposition 8 in California; shouldn’t everyone in America who is against marriage equality for gay couples should lose their job as well?
I think all open-minded and progressive supporters of Barack Obama will strongly agree with that. Right?
Some background: Proposition 8 was a California ballot initiative defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman and recently, online dating site OkCupid posted on its homepage that Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich donated $1,000 toward Prop. 8 way back in 2008. They also accused the CEO of being against equality for gay couples and urged a boycott of Mozilla.
When OkCupid’s post went viral, Eich was forced to resign, because if you have certain political beliefs, you lose your job. That’s the country we now live in.
Funny, because in 2008, Barack Obama also believed in traditional marriage and even ran for President on a platform which included the strongly held belief that the definition was that of being strictly and unequivocally between one man and one woman – and I quote:
“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”
— Barack Obama
“What I believe, in my faith, is that a man and a woman, when they get married, are performing something before God, and it’s not simply the two persons who are meeting.”
— Barack Obama
“I have been to this point unwilling to sign on to same-sex marriage primarily because of my understandings of the traditional definitions of marriage . . .”
— Barack Obama
Pretty straight forward, oui?
I better not find out you gave money to his 2008 campaign either, or guess what? You’re Audi5000. Toast. Pink Slip City, ma’ brutha’. GTFO of the snack room because you are against equality for gay couples, friendo. You’re a bigot and this narrow-minded, cave-man ideology means you should not be allowed to make a living in America and I don’t care about your family or their future either, you hater.
Go back to the dark days of this country’s shameful past.. you know, the fifties or at least 2011..
A quick Googling of the same-sex flip-floppage of the First Gay President (so says Newsweek, but Salon says it was James Buchanan) has you safely on the payroll for some other Obama campaigns, because it turns out Barack Obama was in favor of same-sex marriage before he was against it:
Let’s go back a little further, shall we?
In 1996, when running for the Illinois State Senate, Chicago’s Outlines gay newspaper asked the candidates to fill out a questionnaire. For the question; “Do you favor legalizing same-sex marriage?” Candidate Obama answered; “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages…”
But — two short years later – on the same questionnaire he simply wrote; “Undecided.” Would he support a bill to repeal Illinois legislation prohibiting same-sex marriage? “Undecided.”Would he co-sponsor it? “Undecided.” Hmm.. A little confusion or evolution.
Perhaps some curiosity – I don’t know. Who knows, these kids?
A couple years later: Civil unions? Yes. Gay marriage? No. Very decisive Barack! Gold star for you..
NOTE: In 2011, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said the President did not fill out the pro-marriage equality questionnaire in 1996 and that it was fake – even though it had Obama’s signature. The White House later said, “Dan was not familiar with the history of the questionnaire.” (Hope this guy wasn’t in charge of the birth certificate.)
In the meantime, Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Lois Lerner have deprived millions of people of their civil rights by deliberately targeting them using the government and its administrative agencies, so this whole “evolving” seems a bit trivial, doesn’t it?
Because now in addition to your tax records, they have your health records, emails, credit card transactions, texts, phone call recordings, Facebook friends, they can track you five feet outside your doorstep wherever you go, watch you through your laptop’s webcam, track what show’s you watch, monitor who you donate to, what you post on Twitter, your searches – who cares who gets married at this point?
If you’re waiting for the Republicans to help, you’re a special kind of stupid. Excuse me for using that word, but come on – how long are you going to put faith in people who take your money, your vote, your time, your heart and then turn around and enable ObamaCare, Amnesty and $100 trillion in unfunded government mandates?
It’s only a matter of time before donating to Tea Party or true conservative candidates will get you fired too. Think the Republican establishment will have a problem with that?
Friend me on Facebook – if you dare. No one turned away.
