The increasing stupidity of political correctness has reached a new level.

OKCupid, a site that relies HEAVILY on JavaScript for its entire operation, has called for the boycott of Mozilla for their decision to appoint Brendan Eich (the creator of JS, a language used in almost every modern website on the Internet) because he made a donation 6 years before being appointed as the CEO. I don't understand how it is justifiable to call for the boycott of a company simply because someone decided to donate to a charity with their own money.

I understand that you may not agree with your views, and he may not agree with yours, but pressuring a company to fire someone on the basis of private views and NOT qualification is simply childish. How is the creator of one of the most widely-used languages on the Internet not qualified for the position of CEO of a company that deals with the Internet, almost exclusively?

If you agree with this boycott, I ask you immediately uninstall any modern web browser on your computer and seek an alternative that does not use JavaScript. Anything else would be hypocritical, no?

The left preaches tolerance, but they are only tolerant of those who agree with their views.

Preach, brotha. Seriously though, I totally agree. Just fuck the Left in general. Makes me sick how much influence these arseholes wield.
