    Mozilla: We Must Do MORE to Silence Wrongthink on the Internet

    While critics ranging from anti-Putin activists in Russia to the ACLU have expressed deep concerns about the level of unmitigated censorship power enjoyed by the Big Tech cabal in the United States, at least one company thinks that recent actions by Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon, and Apple haven’t gone nearly far enough in silencing political wrongthink.

    In a statement, the Mozilla Foundation – the parent company behind the Firefox browser, argued that Big Tech needs to do more to change the “dangerous dynamics” of the internet.

    “This week we saw the culmination of a four-year disinformation campaign orchestrated by the President,” Mozilla wrote. “We have to acknowledge how the internet was misused to get here.”

    If Mozilla put out any statements decrying the dangerous disinformation that led to the BLM riots of last summer, we sure must have missed it. Then again, a lot of that disinformation was spread directly through old media networks like NBC News and The New York Times, so maybe that’s why this internet foundation was slow to notice.

    In the article, Mozilla chairwoman Mitchell Baker went on to claim that the “rampant use of the internet to foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy is about more than any one personality.”

    After reciting the usual rhetoric about how terrible the president is, Baker called for those in charge of the internet to find solutions – most of which seem geared towards cracking down on freedom of speech.

    “We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage has been done,” she wrote. “Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than just the temporary silencing or permanent removal of bad actors from social media platforms.”

    Among her suggestions:

    Reveal who is paying for advertisements, how much they are paying and who is being targeted.

    Commit to meaningful transparency of platform algorithms so we know how and what content is being amplified, to whom, and the associated impact.

    Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation.

    Work with independent researchers to facilitate in-depth studies of the platforms’ impact on people and our societies, and what we can do to improve things.

    It is not surprising that Big Tech has used the events at the Capitol to indulge themselves in a mission they were on long before last Wednesday: To silence anyone left-of-center, anyone who criticizes progressivism, and anyone who isn’t absolutely thrilled with Silicon Valley’s total and complete capture of the public square. Not surprising, but it ought to be very disturbing.

    Mitchell Baker, executive chair of Mozilla, announced on the company’s blog that Brendan Eich, former Mozilla CEO has stepped down “for Mozilla and our community.” His sin: contributing $1000 in 2008 in support of California’s Prop 8, which upheld traditional marriage.

    Now, Mozilla is a company that takes great pride in their – ahem – tolerance and open-mindedness. Really
    .
    Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.

    Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.

    Yet it’s clear that something in the corporate climate of Mozilla made it impossible for Eich to continue in his job. And that something is bigotry, plain and simple. Here is Robert P. George:

    Mozilla has now made its employment policy clear.
    No Catholics need apply.
    Or Evangelical Christians.
    Or Eastern Orthodox.
    Or Orthodox Jews.
    Or Mormons.
    Or Muslims.

    Unless, that is, you are the “right kind” of Catholic, Evangelical, Eastern Orthodox Christian, observant Jew, Mormon, or Muslim, namely, the kind who believes your religious or philosophical tradition is wrong about the nature of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife, and the view now dominant among secular elites is correct. In that case, Mozilla will consider you morally worthy to work for them. Or maybe you can work for them even if you do happen to believe (or should I say “believe”) your faith’s teaching—so long as you keep your mouth shut about it: “Don’t ask, don’t tell.”


    Once Eich’s contribution was made known, it took Mozilla only a week to toss him, “Eich’s head as a trophy on their wall.”

    Back on the Mozilla blog, Mitchell says, “While painful, the events of the last week show exactly why we need the web. So all of us can engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better,” yet comments are closed. It’s tough to engage freely in conversation when you can’t talk.

    Mozilla has made it clear: all are welcome, so long as they agree with us. Bigotry and bullying have become their new corporate principles.

    Project Veritas released a new video today exposing Michael Beller, Principal Counsel for The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), for his statements defending violent attacks on the White House, re-education for the children of Trump supporters and praising the deaths of red state voters as a result of COVID-19.
    Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:

    • Michael Beller, PBS principal counsel: “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps.”
    • Beller: “Enlightenment camps. They’re nice, they have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.
    • Beller: “Americans are so f*cking dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place [Washington, D.C.] where people are educated and know stuff. Could you imagine if you lived in one of these other towns or cities where everybody's just stupid?”
    • Beller: “What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great…a lot of them [red state voters] are sick and dying.”

    At which point will Americans realize that creating an unaccountable institution that is able to pass its liability on to tax-payers is immoral and attracts sociopaths?

    Mozilla was great as an alternative to Explorer 10 years ago, but Brave is where it's at now.
