The removal of Eich is about fascism.

It’s about one group of people forcing everyone else to bow to their hat on a pole;
it's about book burning, compelling obeisance to, as Jame Surowiecki put it, “a universal ideology” in a manner so bald that even those who might gain politically in the short term from it are horrified by its crudity. Perceptive gays understand now, if they hadn’t noticed before, that a whole mechanism now exists for persecuting people whose views are deemed unacceptable. Today it is directed against Eich; once it was directed against Summers; on other occasions it was employed against Clarence Thomas. But sooner or later, probably sooner, they understand it will be directed against them — or us — or someone. And if it can get a corporate CEO who is widely regarded as the father of Javascript it can get pretty darned anyone. Belmont Club » Eich

Your Say

It is not about fascism, it is fascism.

Not fascism, at least in its proper and historical meaning. Its just plain old fashioned tyranny. Its religious zealotry, given a new face. Believe my way or you're a heretic. Believe my way or face the stake.
