The gall of these nazi, anti-free speech assholes who dared to fire an employee for making a political donation, now go begging for money. I literally would rather donate to the nazi party before donating to these fuckers.Actually, while that's skirting on the edge of Godwinland, that's about right. There's quite good reason to think that Hollywood waited until the time was ripe before they used the Gay Marriage controversy to get rid of the then CEO of Mozilla, Brenden Eich:
It’s quite a theory, and I’m not sure what to make of it, but via Instapundit I ran into the allegation that the real reason Brendan Eich was removed as the head of Mozilla wasn’t the homosexual “marriage” issue at all, but rather that he stood in the way of Hollywood-friendly restrictions called Digital Rights Managment (“DRM”) being added to the open source browser Firefox.For the non technical press, this is a very good introduction to the security problems of DRM. The link to Sony's shenanigans with their DRM that shipped on music CDs is worth following for one of the most infamous examples of Corporations run amok, intentionally infecting their customers with malware to try to stop MP3 copying.
And so to the title of this post. The Social Justicce Warriors (SJWs) are filled to overflowing with righteous rage on whatever the topic is that is near and dear to their hearts. The topic is irrelevant to Corporate America, but the chance to harness that rage to advance the Corporate agenda is plausibly too good to pass up. It would be trivial to "leak" information on, say, a certain person's political contributions to the Right Sort of SJWs.
And then DRM is suddenly in your browser, because the guy who was fighting against Corporate America had been defenestrated.
And the Mozilla Foundation is now begging for money "to support Open Source". Riiiiiight.
So what is plausible to conclude about the SJWs in general and the Mozilla Foundation in particular? They're Useful Idiots for advancing the cause of Corporate America. No thanks. As the Captain points out, donating to Nazis at least means that you're donating to people who aren't tools of interests bigger than they imagine.
