Uninstall Firefox.

As Princeton Professor of Jurisprudence Robert George warned on my radio show, today the left fires employees for opposition to same-sex marriage. Tomorrow it will fire employees who are pro-life (“anti-woman”). And next it will be employees who support Israel (an “apartheid state”).

The reason to boycott Firefox is not that it is run by leftists. Nor is the reason to support the man-woman definition of marriage. It is solely in order to preserve liberty in the land of liberty. If Firefox doesn’t recant and rehire Eich as CEO, McCarthyism will have returned far more pervasively and perniciously than in its first incarnation. The message the gay left (such as the Orwellian-named Human Rights Campaign) and the left in general wish to send is that Americans who are in positions of power at any company should be forced to resign if they hold a position that the left strongly opposes.

And switching to Google’s Chrome might not be a good political option either.

I use Seamonkey, which though based on the same Mozilla code is now a separate and independent organization.

    Haven’t tried SeaMonkey but Pale Moon is doing great for me. Easy to transfer and all add-on (AdBlock Plus) work. Faster too, but otherwise looks just like Firefox. And the programmer who created it, while not against gay marriage, voiced his dismay with Mozilla’s decisions.
    While I was at it I swapped my Chrome for Iron. Also just as good , although I haven’t used it as much, but it made me feel better. I like Chrome and even many things from Google but for some reason I just don’t trust them.

    First, one faction boycotts Mozilla for installing Eich as CEO, then a very different group wants to boycott Mozilla for not standing up to the bullies.
    Almost a catch-22.

    I also use Seamonkey and now find that it is not perceived as different from Firefox. This morning, using Seamonkey, when clicking on a link to an article on redstate.com, I got one of those pages that try to shame you for using Firefox (one extra click to get to the destination). It seems that the “browser ID” string which this browser sends to the web-host contains both the Seamonkey version number *and* the equivalent Firefox version number.
    In my case, it looks like:

    Firefox/28.0 SeaMonkey/2.25

    Argh!
