The tolerance brigade is back and attempting to influence corporate leadership once again. File hosting service Dropbox recently announced that Condoleezza Rice had been chosen to sit on the company’s board of directors.
That move didn’t sit well with many from the progressive human resources department, and there’s a petition demanding Rice be removed from the Dropbox board:
Looks like @Dropbox is getting 5 or 6 tweets/min from furious customers over Condi Rice being added to their board https://t.co/v1phI1y4g2

Some claim to have issues with Rice’s past approval of wire tapping when she served in the Bush administration, and we can’t help but wonder how many of those objecting to her new job at Dropbox voted for Obama:
Haha @Dropbox what are you doing? Condi Rice joins your board? The lady authorized wire taps with no warrants and I should feel okay?

"Disturbing move from @dropbox, who just added Condi Rice—public advocate of warrantless wiretapping—to its board." http://t.co/uUDlyeSRQM

Do you use Dropbox? Condoleezza Rice has joined Dropbox's board of directors.
She was involved in wiretapping and NSA spying. Nice.

However, there is also support for Dropbox:
Dear @Dropbox , as a paying customer I'm pleased by your decision to add @CondoleezzaRice to your board of directors https://t.co/SDQGG82Wx0

Can’t imagine why Dropbox would want someone as intelligent, articulate and accomplished as Condi Rice on their Board. Very troubling.

I believe I will now sign up for a @dropbox account to support Condi Rice #DropDropbox

Hey @drewhouston I'm happy to support Dropbox. Don't cave to the little fascist creeps behind the #DropDropbox movement.

For many, their opposition to Dropbox’s newest board member boils down to two words: “War criminal!”
@DLoesch your commentary is laughable. People are trying to remove a known war criminal. Doesn't matter if they are male or female.

@trevortimm @Dropbox Hiring war criminals is complicity in war crimes.

@trevortimm @Dropbox A shit move like Condi appointment tells you all you need to know about Dropbox. #dropdropbox

Condoleezza Rice, surveillance and torture fan, joins Dropbox board http://t.co/p3GdVQHIqm

Condi the war criminal Rice the well known privacy advocate is now on the board of @Dropbox Have you deleted your account yet? Please do so.
— William Owen (@Bill_Owen) April 10, 2014
So, ACTUAL WAR CRIMINAL Condoleeza Rice is joining the @dropbox board of directors? Preparing to #dropdropbox immediately if this happens.
— George M (@gmiddleb) April 10, 2014
@trevortimm most of us are @dropbox users NOT customers. Which is a significant difference.
Still, having a war criminal on board is bad.

good to know my cloud storage has a wire tapping war criminal as a board member. Goodbye, Dropbox. http://t.co/F7EdDXSbni

Nice move Dropbox, now Mozilla can say "hey, at least we didn't bring in a war criminal".
— Jack Daniel (@jack_daniel) April 10, 2014
Speaking of “war,” why in the world doesn’t an attempt to keep a single, black female out of the corporate board room fall under the “war on women” umbrella?
@EWErickson The corporate boardroom is no place for a single, black woman. Obviously. #TheLeft

Progressives trying to chase a woman from the boardroom: http://t.co/NfZodkKTC3 #dropdropbox #outrageclownz

@DLoesch and a black woman to boot. #racists
— Johnny Bishop (@JohnnyBishop) April 10, 2014
Weird.. @donnabrazile oddly silent about another leftist mob standing in the doorway of Condoleezza Rice serving on the board of Dropbox.
— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) April 10, 2014
@redsteeze @donnabrazile also, NAACP on vacation apparently.

Hateful, Racist, Women Hating Fascists Try to Drive Condi Rice from Dropbox Board http://t.co/zJ2b3WDbMr

Rice will have to get the “D” after her name if she’s going to get the free pass from the tolerance brigade.
WHOOPS! Biden meant to say ‘I applaud Canada’ but instead named a different country
