Gingrich says Mozilla ousting just the ‘most open, blatant example of the new fascism’

Newt Gingrich laid it out perfectly on Sunday.

The forced ouster of Mozilla co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich this week was a sign of the “new fascism” of liberalism that’s sweeping American life.

newtgingrich0407“People need to realize, if you’re a young faculty member, in a lot of places if you’re a young member of a news department and you have the wrong views – meaning conservative – you have no career,” Gingrich said on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

“This is just the most open and blatant example of the new fascism, which says, ‘if you don’t agree with us 100 percent, we have the right to punish you.’”

The best evidence Gingrich was right came from the half-hearted responses. Former Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile ludicrously tried to suggest Eich stepped aside voluntarily, while guest host Jonathan Karl tried pulling the race card into the discussion by asking about interracial marriage.

Gingrich stayed on point.

“I think the question is do you want to live in an open and tolerant society, or do you want impose your views at the cost of people’s jobs?” he said.

Newt’s usually the smartest guy in the room. With Brazile at the table, it’s not even close. Check out the video here.

    The political leftists, such as Al Gore, also have been calling for the imprisonment of people who disagree with their claims, as on CO2 emissions as the cause of claimed global warming. Also the medical doctors HAVE SUCCESSFULLY imprisoned dissenters who offer treatment methods that are cheaper and more effective than the pills and treatments they push through the expensive hospitals. In that sense, they have called for the imprisonment of scientists and doctors who disagree with the HIV theory of AIDS (and yes, HIV is still a theory, not a fully-confirmed causal agent in the AIDS malady). So don’t think for a minute that they would not take the next step of actually putting people into prison for their ideas. Many leftists have already declared they view the US Constitution as an outdated an “archaic” document.

      Id love to see any prove of any of these “claims”.

    Been speaking with a lot of people who would be considered to the left of the political spectrum on this issue. They agree with the majority sentiment on what happened – I do not believe this really is just a left of center issue but affects us all. After the initial reports that indicated he was fired, it turns out he actually resigned. This is a difference, but in my mind a relatively small one as he had every right to do what he did.

    There are laws to protect people from on-the-job discrimination and harassment, as there should be. The 1st Amendment is a law – not a suggestion.

    The problem is that te Left thinks they have a right to destroy the liver of anyone who does not agree with them. This is not ridicule, but character assassination, defamation, harassment, invasion of privacy, and denial of one’s 1st Amendment rights.

      First amendment doesn’t apply to the private sector. It only applies to the government and you.
