Tim Cook joined all the other progressive left poseurs in sanctimoniously denouncing Indiana’s Religious Freedom Protection law. At the time, some suggested some hypocrisy on the Apple CEO’s part because of his company’s active commercial presence in countries where the brutal oppression and even public execution of homosexuals is official government policy.
Tim Cook says that, “Opposing discrimination takes courage,” and we agree. We call on Mr. Cook to live up to our shared principles by pulling Apple out of Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Iran until they stop their official government policies of jailing and murdering gays and lesbians.
It takes N0 courage to “stand up to” bakers and florists who just don’t want to take part in gay weddings (although it gets you a lot of “trained seal applause” from other sanctimonious poseurs). Standing up to legitimately brutal regimes … that would be actual courage.
