The hounding of Brendan Eich has inspired Andrew Sullivan to direct some disapprobation toward some people who actually deserve it for a change.

His flaw lies in assuming the progressive left wants a “tolerant and diverse society.” They don’t. Read the responses to his Tweet. Most of them are totally on-board with intolerance and witch-hunts.
The gay left is reveling in their power to ruin anyone whose opinion is not in line with what they consider acceptable. As I said before, they are only going to get more obnoxious.
Nick Adds: Naturally, Mozilla closed comments on their milquetoast post about ‘diversity’ in relation to their decision. (Trackbacks are open, but such a cowardly and pandering move doesn’t deserve the mention, so sorry GP fans, you’ll have to search it out yourself.) How disgusting. I think it was Greg Gutfeld who said (something along the lines of): Diversity is great until you point out any way in which people are different.
Andrew (who I once respected immensely) gets a rare broken-clock nail-on-the-head here. As someone who’s perplexed by the Gay Kommunity’s fascination with marriage (why anybody would actively invite the government to involve itself in his personal relationships is beyond me and the topic of a million other posts I’ve written or at least considered writing, but beside the point…), I find their suppressionist approach is stomach-wrenching in its hypocrisy considering the alleged and self-declared oppression of this subset of society.
