The liberal wave of criticism that swept Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich from office this week has conservatives wondering if libs are willing to apply the same standard to the president.
If Eich had to resign for views he held in 2008, shouldn’t Obama do the same?

It’s a pretty straightforward question. Until the spring of 2012, President Obama was publicly opposed to gay marriage and even said he thought it was something states should decide.
So what happened?
2 years ago, if you opposed gay marriage, liberals would elect you President. Today, they seek to destroy anyone who has ever opposed it.

One Twitter poster found plenty of ammunition against a candidate who once opposed it.

The implications are clear.

Elsewhere on Twitter, the PC ugliness of the Eich purge was too much even some the PC thought police pretend they’re defending. One Twitter post put it perfectly — calling the out the liberal/left for the proto-fascists they are.
Dear @Mozilla: I’m gay & I didn’t come out of the closet so fascist leftists could force Christians INTO the closet. Shame on you!

And the outpouring was impressive, more than 1,000 retweets and comments from all over the political spectrum.
