Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock lately, you’ve likely heard about what recently happened to Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich. The homofascists and their godless collaborators drove him out of the company he co-founded because six years ago he contributed $1,000 in support of the Prop 8 effort in California, which defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Eich is only the latest high-profile victim to experience their aggressive assaults. There have actually been hundreds of average American citizens who were also attacked for their support of Prop 8 through harassment, intimidation, death threats, violence, vandalism, job termination, etc. We haven’t heard much about them because they aren’t well-known leaders of tech giants (Brendan Eich) or famous celebrities (Phil Robertson).
If someone donates $100 or more in support or opposition to a ballot initiative in California, state law requires the disclosure of your full name, occupation and employer. The LA Times published an on-line, searchable database in 2008 with the names and information of those who contributed to the Prop 8 referendum. Armed with this information, militant members of the Al-‘Gay’da and Lezbollah terrorist networks utilized Google Maps and produced/published maps indicating where all of the Prop 8 supporters lived and worked. Almost immediately, the supporters of natural marriage found themselves in the crosshairs of an angry mob of homofascist enemies of freedom.
So, whenever liberals argue in favor of legislation mandating the disclosure of the identities of contributors to political issues or candidates, now we know why. It’s not really about financial transparency or the integrity of the democratic process. It’s so they can target, intimidate and launch reprisals against those with whom they disagree. All dissent must be silenced by the homosexual Taliban.
The following examples are direct quotes taken from a much larger list compiled by the Heritage Foundation, which provides a considerable amount of additional documentation and links. They are categorized under four headings: vandalism, harassment/hostility, violence/threats of violence, and employment jeopardization. If you don’t read the entire list, let me especially call your attention to the violence and threats of violence section of this report. Everyone really needs to make themselves aware of the true colors of the rainbow-masked thugs.
An elderly couple who put a Yes on 8 sign in their yard had a block thrown through their window.
A senior citizen who placed a pro-Prop-8 bumper sticker on her car had her car’s rear window smashed in.
One woman with a “One Man, One Woman” bumper sticker had her car keyed and tires deflated while she was in a grocery store.
One man who placed signs in his yard and stickers on his cars and motorbike reported that someone egged and floured his home three times and egged, floured, and honeyed his car twice. Someone also pushed over the man’s motorbike and scraped the bumper stickers off the back glass windows of his cars.
Vandals spray-painted vehicles, garages, fences, and Yes on 8 signs in Yucaipa, California.
An Alta Loma resident who placed a Yes on 8 sign in her yard found the words “love for all” and “no on 8” spray-painted on her fifth-wheel trailer.
In San Jose, vandals spray painted the garage doors of two homeowners who displayed signs supporting Prop 8.
Vandals also spray-painted anti-Prop 8 messages on commercial and residential buildings in Fullerton.
One woman who placed a pro-Prop 8 sign on her balcony reported finding that her staircase leading downstairs had been covered in urine. She also found a puddle of urine at the bottom of the stairs.
Orange spray paint was used to vandalize a statue of the Virgin Mary outside one church.
Swastikas and other graffiti were scrawled on the walls of the Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in San Francisco.
In San Luis Obispo, the Assembly of God Church was egged and toilet-papered, and a Mormon church had an adhesive poured onto a doormat and keypad.
Signs supporting Prop 8 were twisted into a swastika at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Riverside.
Someone used a heavy object wrapped with a Yes on 8 sign to smash the window of a pastor’s office at Messiah Lutheran Church in Downey.
According to one source, the Yes on 8 campaign estimated that approximately one-third of an estimated 25,000 signs distributed in California were stolen or vandalized before the campaign ended.
In some cases, perpetrators crossed fences and walls to steal signs or removed signs that had been securely fastened in place. One individual reported coming home late and hearing male voices outside her home.
HARASSMENT AND HOSTILITY
Prop 8 supporters have reported receiving phone calls and voice mails calling them “bigot”and using vulgar language. Sometimes harassers called at work. A public relations firm hired by the Yes on 8 Campaign received so many harassing phone calls from one person that the sheriff’s office became involved.
Other Prop 8 supporters received e-mails, letters, and postcards using vulgar language and offensive labels like “gay hater.” Through the contact form on his business’s Web site, one individual received an e-mail stating “burn in hell.”
Two women painted an arrow and the words “Bigots live here” on the window of their SUV and parked the vehicle in front of a household that had supported Prop 8.
In another case, an individual who supported Prop 8 found himself the subject of a flyer distributed in his town. The flyer included a photo of him, labeled him a “Bigot,” and stated his name, the amount of his donation to Prop 8, and his association with a particular Catholic church.
At the University of California, Davis, a Yes on 8 table on the quad was reportedly attacked by a group of students throwing water balloons and shouting “you teach hate.”
One woman who stood near a street with a Yes on 8 sign reported that a man stopped his car and shouted at her, “You despicable filthy bag of [expletive deleted].” Other drivers circled the block and yelled things like “You [expletive deleted]” each time they drove by her. Once a car with several men stopped, and a man in the back seat opened the door and threw something at her. Another driver stopped her car and yelled, “Get the [expletive deleted] out of here. Who do you think you are, bringing that hate into my neighborhood?”
“According to eyewitness reports published on the Internet,” states one news source, “racial epithets have been used against African Americans at protests in California — with some even directed against blacks who are fighting to repeal Prop. 8.” One man, for example, reported he was called a particular racial slur twice and said the anti-Prop 8 protest he attended “was like being at a klan rally except the klansmen were wearing Abercrombie polos and Birkenstocks.” Another man reported that “he and his boyfriend, who are both black, were carrying NO ON PROP 8 signs and still subjected to racial abuse.”
Joe Solmonese, head of the Human Rights Campaign at the time, echoed this sentiment on the “Dr. Phil” show when, in response to a question from a Mormon audience member asking why his church was being targeted, he reportedly declared, “We are going to go after your church every day for the next two years unless and until Prop 8 is overturned.”
After Prop 8 passed, crowds of same-sex marriage activists congregated for protests at Mormon houses of worship throughout the nation. One video shows same-sex marriage activists massed outside the Mormon temple in New York City crying “fascist church” repeatedly. Another video appears to show angry activists rattling the gates of the temple in Los Angeles and chanting “shame on you.” Images from various protests show signs like “Mormon Scum,” “Get your filthy church off me,”and “Keep your hate in Salt Lake.”
Anti-Mormon malice reached a new level when someone mailed packages containing suspicious white powder to Mormon temples in California and Utah. At least one of those incidents triggered a domestic terrorism investigation.
VIOLENCE AND THREATS OF VIOLENCE
Jose Nunez, who became a U.S. citizen just months before Prop 8 passed, was waiting to distribute signs outside his Catholic church when a man grabbed several Yes on 8 signs and fled. When Nunez followed the thief and tried to recover the signs, the thief reportedly yelled “What do you have against gays?” and punched Nunez in the face. According to Prop 8 supporters, Nunez suffered a bloody eye and wounds to his face and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital “where he received 16 stitches under his eye.”
In Fresno, the town mayor received a death threat for supporting Prop 8. The threat stated, “Hey Bubba, you really acted like a real idiot at the Yes of [sic] Prop 8 Rally this past weekend. Consider yourself lucky. If I had a gun I would have gunned you down along with each and every other supporter.” The threat also mentioned a “little surprise” for a local pastor who supported Prop 8 and “his congregation of lowlife’s” [sic]. “Keep letting him preach hate and he’ll be sorry,” the perpetrator threatened. “He will be meeting his maker sooner than expected.” The threat also stated that anyone in Fresno displaying a Yes on Prop 8 yard sign or bumper sticker was “in danger of being shot or firebombed.” Police took the threat seriously, launching a criminal investigation and taking extra steps to protect the mayor and pastor.
In another incident, an elderly woman in Palm Springs was besieged by an angry mob protesting Prop 8. Video footage posted on the Internet shows several men shouting at the woman as a television reporter tries to interview her. “Get out of here,” one man shouts in the elderly woman’s face. Later the video shows the woman, who is carrying a large cross at this point, surrounded by several men, including at least one who knocks the cross out of the woman’s hands and stomps on it. Someone also reportedly spit on the 69-year-old lady.
A small group of Christians encountered similar hostilities when an angry crowd apparently took them for pro-Prop 8 demonstrators as they prayed and sang hymns on a sidewalk in the Castro District of San Francisco. One of the Christians reportedly later stated that the people in the crowd shouted words like “haters” and “bigots” and then “started throwing hot coffee, soda and alcohol on us and spitting (and maybe even peeing) on us.” Someone in the crowd allegedly threatened to kill the group’s leader, and someone else allegedly tried to pull down the pants of one of the men in the group. A woman in the group was allegedly struck on the head with her own Bible before being thrown to the ground and kicked. Video footage posted on the Internet shows a band of police officers dressed in riot gear fending off the angry crowd and escorting the Christians to safety.
In one disturbing incident just days after Prop 8 passed, a radical group called “Bash Back!” invaded a Christian church in Michigan. The group’s Web site featured photos of members dressed like terrorists and brandishing various objects as weapons. A press release posted by the Alliance Defense Fund, a public interest legal association that is suing the openly anarchist group in federal court, states:
‘[M]embers of the group dressed in militant garb staged a protest outside the church during a worship service to distract security personnel, blocking access to the building and parking lot at various times. Other members of the group dressed in plain clothes then deceptively entered the building. At a coordinated time, they sprang up to disrupt the service, terrifying many attendees. The group shouted religious slurs, unfurled a sign, and threw fliers around the sanctuary while two women began kissing near the podium. The group pulled fire alarms as they ran out of the building.
Scott Eckern was employed as the director of the nonprofit California Musical Theater in Sacramento before being targeted for personally donating $1,000 to Prop 8. Once Mr. Eckern’s support for Prop 8 was discovered, the theater was “deluged” with criticism from prominent artists who opposed Prop 8. Critics included Marc Shaiman, the composer of Hairspray, who stated that his work could not be performed at the theater because of Mr. Eckern’s support for Prop 8. Mr. Eckern resigned.
Richard Raddon was the director of the Los Angeles Film Festival before he landed in the crosshairs of Prop 8 opponents. Mr. Raddon personally donated $1,500 to Prop 8. As in the case of Mr. Eckern, once information about Mr. Raddon’s personal donation was disclosed to the state and published on the Internet, he became a target of Prop 8 opponents. According to an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal, “A threatened boycott and picketing of the next festival forced him to resign.”
The extreme nature of this crude, but effective new tactic was poignantly illustrated in the case of Marjorie Christoffersen, a 67-year-old restaurant employee who donated a mere $100 to Prop 8. Once information about Ms. Christoffersen’s $100 donation was published on the Internet, Prop 8 opponents launched a protest against the restaurant where she worked, prompting the restaurant to offer activists a free brunch and Ms. Christoffersen to offer an apology. However, when Ms. Christoffersen refused to renounce her support for Prop 8, the meeting “turned ugly” and “[b]oisterous street protests erupted that night.” Ms. Christoffersen eventually decided to take a leave of absence to protect the restaurant, which is owned by her mother, and the other employees who worked there.
In other cases, business owners who supported Prop 8 either personally or through their enterprises have had their businesses targeted for reprisals by same-sex marriage activists. A dentist in Palo Alto lost patients because he donated $1,000. Purves & Associates, an insurance company in Davis, was picketed with signs such as “Purves Family Supports Homophobia” after family members donated to Prop 8. Protesters rallied and handed out free ice cream to retaliate against a family-owned creamery that supported Prop 8. Activists boycotted the Grand Hyatt hotel in San Diego because its developer donated money to help to put Prop 8 on the ballot. Same-sex marriage activists also targeted a self-storage company because its owner and his family donated money to Prop 8.
The supporters of Prop 8 have paid a very steep price for defending marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and very few homosexual activists have ever disavowed the crimes that the homosexual Sharia supporters have perpetrated. Nevertheless, these brave individuals are to be commended for standing up for the truth despite the onslaught of attacks. Liberty will require many more people to do the same. Brendan Eich was only latest victim of the virulent Al-‘Gay’da terrorists, and we too will need to be a people of courage and conviction if we ever hope to stem the tide of these sin-obsessed, sodomy-fixated destroyers of morality and freedom.
Moreover, what happened to Brendan Eich functions as a metaphor for life. In the same way that the founder of Mozilla was forced out of his own company, the homofascists, liberals and secularists also want to dethrone God from the universe he founded. Of course, the Bible confirms the fact that they will ultimately fail, but in the meantime that doesn’t thwart them from all their raging and vain plotting (Psalm 2:1; Acts 4:25).
An estimated 35,000 people contributed to the Prop 8 effort. That means the vile, militant supporters of sin-based sodomy “marriage,” have got a lot of work ahead of them. Their Islamofascist-style purge of all defenders of morality has only just begun.
For the homo-terrorists, Brendan Eich is “one down” – only 34, 999 more to go!
