Apparently even the highest ranking members of a company can be purged for condemning the murder of the unborn. Tripwire Interactive said that its CEO “has stepped down” after his purported Twitter account caused outrage by making a pro-life stance.
Tripwire CEO John Gibson’s purported account declared on Sept. 4 that he was “Proud of #USSupremeCourt affirming the Texas law banning abortion for babies with a heartbeat.” He explained further that while “As an entertainer I don’t get political often,” he nonetheless, “felt it was important to go on the record as a pro-life game developer” amid an overwhelmingly liberal industry. Companies responded by distancing themselves or even reportedly severing ties and contracts with Tripwire, all over the expressed opinion of the former Tripwire Interactive CEO.
In short, the radical progressive left has made clear that no matter how high-ranking a conservative is within a company, he is not safe from censorship. It seems that if a conservative espouses a belief that is popular among millions of everyday Americans — like pro-life legislation — then he is too extreme for the liberal tech world.
