Are you visiting Breitbart News and wondering just why our website looks so odd?
Here’s the answer: today, Breitbart News has decided to create a visual presentation. This visual presentation is designed to show Americans just what it would mean for those with control of the internet browsers we all use to censor our content the way they now censor those who work for them.
The point is this: Firefox is now a company that censors. Mozilla decided last week to force the resignation of CEO Brendan Eich after dating company OkCupid blocked all traffic from Mozilla Firefox, stating that Eich was one of their “enemies” for his $1,000 2008 donation to the Proposition 8 campaign for traditional marriage. Eich had never discriminated against a gay person; Mozilla had never discriminated against a gay person. Nonetheless, he had to be shamed and publicly scourged from his position by the totalitarian left – a scourging approved by many in the gay rights movement more focused on power politics than free speech and privacy.
Mozilla’s decision to cave to OkCupid’s pressure represents a neo-McCarthyism that people who love freedom should shun. So over the next several hours, we will be showing you what internet censorship looks like, up close and personal. Because if you think that censorship will stop with Brendan Eich, you’re not looking closely enough.
