    Oops: OkCupid CEO donated to a congressman who opposed gay marriage

    He wont be fired, unlike the CEO of Mozilla...The congressman receiving the donation, Republican Chris Cannon, also opposed adoptions by gay couples and laws prohibiting discrimination in hiring gays.

    CEO Sam Yagan’s donation, in other words, was more of a multi-spectrum  supposed "anti-gay"  contribution than CEO Brendan Eich’s $1,000 gift to support Prop 8 and yet Yagan took it upon himself to be the tip of the spear in the “Eich must go” movement. Says Rick Moran of Yagan’s past, “The gay mafia is never around when you need them.”

    Update: The heretic recants and returns to a state of grace:

    “A decade ago, I made a contribution to Representative Chris Cannon because he was the ranking Republican on the House subcommittee that oversaw the Internet and Intellectual Property, matters important to my business and our industry. I accept responsibility for not knowing where he stood on gay rights in particular; I unequivocally support marriage equality and I would not make that contribution again today. However, a contribution made to a candidate with views on hundreds of issues has no equivalence to a contribution supporting Prop 8, a single issue that has no purpose other than to affirmatively prohibit gay marriage, which I believe is a basic civil right.”

    Rigght.....So gay rights were less important to him than profit? That’s a one-percenter for you."

    Anyone who supported same sex marriage in 2008 should be driven from their office; in business as well as politics.

     

    Boy that would clean house better than term limits.

    Why false equivalence?  Higher standards for private citizens then elected officials?  That doesn't seem to follow?

    I believe he's noting that unless someone is a single-issue voter, donating to a multi-issue candidate is different than whatever it is the Mozilla guy did.

    Bingo.

     

    (Reserving judgement on either case for the moment, but I said that I thought what happened to Eich was a bit unfair.  But Life isn't always fair, is it.)

    "False equivalence" to libs is any equivalence obviously showing massive double standards ...

    The oh-so-politically correct progressive CEO of a gay dating site leads the charge to fire another CEO for the crime of once making a political contribution which doesnt meet left wing approval... .

    Said progressive CEO of gay website also once made political contributions to a, gulp, Republican....but that is different....of course.

    Yagan isn't the CEO of a gay dating site, Okcupid users are vastly heterosexual, though as they have noted recently that of their total matches, roughly 8 percent were homosexual relationships.  He also didn't lead the charge to fire anyone, he asked users to consider using a different browser for accessing the OKcupid site, but users could still use Firefox to get through and the orginal message also indicated that fact.  

    As for his donation to a congressman who chairs the committee that has extrodinary power over OkCupids industry as whole, that is self explanatory.  Its the same reason why conservative businesspeople donate to Democrats who may have influencial positions in house committees that oversee their industry.  Chuck Shumer comes to mind as a pretty obvious example.

    There had to be something else going on with that Mozilla CEO other than just some db blogger/website owner/whatever  whining about him and his donation to Prop 8. Just doesn't seem to be that big a deal to resign.

    Even leftwing moonbat kook Bill Maher says there is a "gay mafia" that will take you out if you disagree.

    Like the jerks here in Boston trying to push thier way into the St. Patricks Day parade.

    Hot air:

    "Uh oh: 60% of Intel employees who donated in 2008 Prop 8 debate supported banning gay marriage..."

    Step away from your PC immediately! You have been enabling hate!

    "I want you to go grab some pliers, crack open your computer console, and join me in tearing the processor right out of that sucker. Political correctness begins on your own desktop, my friends."

    translation: he led the charge to fire a CEO for his political views....

    The wingnuts are getting desperate.

    Apparently your computer processor can be anti-gay marriage.

    And it would surely teach Intel a lesson ... destroying your computer after you've paid for it and Intel made it's money. Brilliant.

    You mean the guy wasn't serious?

    He was just being a putz for putz sake?

     

    And why are the dozens of bible thumper boycotts acceptable but a blurb by a website is not?

    And why is it okay for the wingnuts to hound a gay advisor to Mittens out of a job but a blurb on a website is unaccepatable?

    [/QUOTE]


    It was not okay for the "wingnuts" to hound a gay advisor to Mittens out of a job. I agree with you.
