The source is the same. Bigotry, intolerance, fear. They want intrusive government, just for their own peeves. They just aren't pushed to the brink like many militants are. 
You asked for examples, they gave examples. You are moving the goalposts. But since we're on this, let's give one more, which merges both gay rights and racial equality. Bayard Rustin was a close ally of Martin Luther King Jr. and the main organizer of the 1963 March on Washington (where King gave his famed I have a Dream speech). Also? Gay. And the powers-that-be, who were trying to discredit the Civil Rights movement tried to slander him, like it was a problem. Well Rev....
Can we stop with this? Beats are good headphones. Overpriced but good. Many people who have no idea what they're listening to will proclaim them bad because other people said they're bad. They're good quality, stylish headphones that sell good, and attract an attractive market who have disposable cash. Whatever tech they have can go into improving earpods and Apple can take the knees out of competitors like HP who made the Beats brand a big part of their identity...
well god knows I'm waiting for the day where a reasonably accurate skin-based glucose test will be available for diabetics (my father's been one for over 35 years) that could be worn on a band, but that can be a separate device. I'm not against fitness apps in such a device, I just wish they'd stop marketing them like they do balance balls. I want cool, geeky tech, not something to sell to middle-aged yoga enthusiasts. 
I love the idea of a wearable companion to my iPhone but I have no desire for "Fitness apps" - I really, really don't care about calories burned, steps taken or any undefined fitness goals. I want to know who's calling me, the ability to dismiss that call if I don't want to take it, the time, what Texts are coming in, and notifications that I set up on my phone. I want it light, clear to read, easy to charge, and to look nice. I want an addition to my mobile. Not a...
Many people perfer the scripted show to the "real" UFC - the outcomes aren't predetermined but the showmanship is exactly the same. They've used a half-dozen old Memphis angles (that is, wrestling storylines that were commonly used in the Memphis territory in the 60's through the 80's) in the last 10 years. To me, UFC is tattooed white guy in boxers blazed with advertising fighting tattooed white guy in boxers blazed with advertising.   WWE is not good wrestling - it's...
Well, speaking as a former pro-wrestling performer (in-ring talent, referee and manager for 6 years in my late teens and early 20's back in the late 90's and early 2k's), I'm not buying in only because it's McMahon. It will be heavily edited and one-sided and quite frequently just wrong.  Just see how WWE treats people who don't play ball with them.   I'm happy to see more content, but it will lead me to want to hide the button on AppleTV.... 
It's a good move for both companies. Google can focus on patents and software, Lenovo can make inexpensive hardware. Of the companies I've dealt with in my retail gig, Lenovo is definitely one of the less objectionable, even if I have to explain who they are (8 years later and I'd say 6-8 times a week I still need to tell people who Lenovo are...).   It is good for Apple in that a company who works very hard to keep low margins is going to be taking over a competitor -...
The only thing sad here is realizing how sick Steve really was when this was being made, and how fast he declined afterwards. That said, for this shining day, he was that same kid who priced his computer at 666.66$, introduced us to the GUI and to a shiny blue plastic all-in-one.
I'd prefer not taking on big debt right now. It feels like this is wonderful for Icahn, not really  for that many other people, and not for Apple itself. I'd rather we use some of the nestegg to assure worker confidence on the retail side of things (it's a big rich company, let's make sure all workers on all levels have a better than average salary, better than good benefits and are better trained than anyone else), complete modernizing older stores, and pushing more into...
