Now comes word that vegan activists have bullied a mom and pop butcher shop in Berkeley, California, into putting an animal rights poster in their shop window. This is literally forcing a business owner to put up a sign saying "don't do business with us."
Liberal and Progressive activists have complete abandoned the very nature of what liberal activism is supposed to be. Activism and advocacy is meant to educate; to coax people into realizing the facts that are presented in an effort to persuade the people they are talking to to come to their side. These fascists are forcing people to harm themselves and damage their livelihoods. That's not activism. It's fascism; Nazism.
There is a gigantic difference between peaceful protest, advocacy and activism, and intolerant coercion. These tyrants are strong-arming people who do not hold their points of view to kow-tow to their way of thinking or be persecuted. That's fascism.
The incredulous thing here is that the "activists" are promoting vegan-ism. These historically peaceful people have moved to forced coercion and fascism? If they respect all living things then they have to respect people, and if they respect people they must allow people to live and let live.
Individual rights -- liberty -- allows people to live their lives in the way they see fit, up to the point of encroaching upon someone else's rights. This pinheads are encroaching on the rights of these business owners.
So, they aren't "activists," they are despotic tyrants practicing fascism...Think I'll go have a steak to flip them off ideologically.
