The editor-in-chief of Herman Cain’s Best of Cain website, formerly CainTV, is the latest right-wing activist to pounce on the controversy surrounding Mozilla’s CEO, who stepped down due to an outcry over his donation to the campaign to repeal marriage equality in California.
Dan Calabrese writes on Cain’s site today that gay rights advocates and websites like OKCupid — which advised its members not to use Firefox (but despite some reports did not block the browser) — are promoting fascism and Bolshevism while acting just like The Borg of Star Trek.
“This movement is evil,” Calabrese writes. “The gay movement understands something. They understand that in order for their movement to ultimately succeed, they need to turn the entire culture into a mindless army of obedient adherents like the Borg on Star Trek.”
You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
People who are advocating a righteous cause do not seek to silence all dissent and destroy those who dare to disagree. They let the truth of their position speak for itself, and they don’t fear those who mistakenly fail to see the virtue of their position.
Bolshevik. OkCupid is creating fascism, not love.
The essence of fascism is the stifling of dissent. You might argue that the term doesn’t apply here because the power of government isn’t the driving force behind it. I would tell you that’s irrelvant [sic]. The tactics of fascism are the same regardless of who is weilding [sic] the power. What matters is that they have the power and are willing to use it, and right now gay marriage activists have the power because they are able to scare the bejeezus out of just about everyone.
And just to make sure you get the message, they won’t just try to silence you today. They’ll go back through your history and find out if you’ve spoken up in the past, and punish you for that – maybe by putting pressure on your employer to take away your job. Or maybe they will conscript the power of government, forcing you to provide them services that your faith would suggest you should not provide.
This movement is evil, not because homosexuality is a “worse sin” than other sins, but because its champions are trying to not only silence but in many cases destroy those who disagree with them. The gay movement understands something. They understand that in order for their movement to ultimately succeed, they need to turn the entire culture into a mindless army of obedient adherents like the Borg on Star Trek. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
And no one acts this way when their cause is righteous. They know they don’t need to. They act this way when their cause is evil, and freedom of speech is their enemy because, ultimately, truth is their enemy.
