a fool in paradise has suddenly discovered that Apple users can be a bit cultish:
Apple isn’t a corporation, it’s a religion.Cowboy Bob sees signs of anti-gay backlash. This time for reals!
My sense is that the gays are beginning to sense a backlash building. The best way is stop the backlash before it builds momentum. For this reason, the gays are trying to go “Alinsky” on Indiana, although more than 20 states already have similar laws.wardaddy explains that Apple is not liberal, but #1 with liberals:
I can’t say most Apple folks are libtardsdonna discovers the joys of government trust-busting!
But I have no doubt that most by far of libtards who can afford it own Apple
It’s a standard libtard tech piece like a Subaru or Prius or Patagonia
The latter being overpriced for status like Apple
They won’t be swayed
I own 9 Apple products of the 15-16 personal devices I own

The main statutes are the Sherman Act 1890, the Clayton Act 1914 and the Federal Trade Commission Act 1914.
These Acts, first, restrict the formation of cartels and prohibit other collusive practices regarded as being in restraint of trade.
Second, they restrict the mergers and acquisitions of organizations which could substantially lessen competition.
Third, they prohibit the creation of a monopoly and the abuse of monopoly power.
A corporation is once again attempting to override the will of an elected legislature and governor.VanDeKoik tries to pick a fight:
After 81 posts we have yet to hear from FR’s chief Apple kiss as and his PING list groupies of fellow phony conservatives.Star Traveler shows up loaded for bear:
They can run their mouths real good extolling their love for this company until this stuff pops up. Then they scatter like cowards.
You’re another APPLE-HATER TROLL that can Get Lost!Jim Robinson then lays down the law. Against some random libertarian.
Where in the Bible does it say to not make hamburgers, or provide any other service, to gay people?Taxman is empowered!
What about all of the the adulterers, lairs, thieves, etc?
The libertarian side of me believes that the government shouldn't enforce any discrimination laws, that people should be free to discriminate to anyone they choose.
But I also can't stand all of the self -righteous, probably closet homos, who pick and choose what sins they want to be offended about.
I will oppose Apple!DiogenesLamp has decided Apple is Nazi now.
And, I’ll get my FRiends to oppose Apple!
And, they’ll get their FRiends to oppose Apple!
We’ll boycott Apple!
Nothing new here. All the big corporations in Germany in 1933 signed on to Hitler’s totalitarian programs.DiogenesLamp then wonders what he can buy that's sufficiently Freepish.
And this is what i'm thinking. The Nazis had this term called "Gleichschaltung" which "Among the goals of this policy were to bring about adherence to a specific doctrine and way of thinking and to control as many aspects of life as possible."
The left comes more and more to resemble the Nazis, and they are slowly following in their footsteps. The Nazis were also full of Homosexuals.
I hate Microsoft too. Seriously looking at Linux, but the question for most people will be "which does the most damage to my cause? Using a Microsoft product, or not using a computer at all?"NorthMountain has this incomprehensibly ominous post:

For leftists, the issue is never the issue.
The issue is always The Revolution.
