|"Antifa Ken hasn't called me back--he thinks I'm just a piece of meat!"|
That is the sign in the window that Animal Rights thugs imposed on a California butcher shop as the cost of staying in business.
Free Speech is also a "Right". And killing someone's business is also "violent and unjust, no matter how its done". And this was done though intimidation.

Coerced public recantations are a staple of the Communist diet, seen most recently at Otto Warmbier's show-trial.
Mr. Dalrymple: "In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.".......
While we think of the Mob strong-arming the candy store-owner for protection money, these Menshevik mobsters are strong-arming the shop-owners for ideology and power.
That's because there is indeed a straight line between Chicago's Community Organizers:
Al Capone, Saul Alinsky and B. Hussein Obama.
BTW, Barry had "Rules for Radicals" translated into Macedonian at taxpayer expense before the Macedonian elections.
Because Meddling in Foreign Elections is So Very Wrong(tm), you see.
Mr. Tracinski on the Dunham case, which also applies here :
"Finally, consider the role of the employer. When the Czech dissident Vaclav Havel formulated his ideas for how to resist Communist tyranny, he noted the role of the small business or employer who agreed to enforce the rules and post the propaganda of the regime out of fear and conformity. Well, that’s exactly what we’re up against now.
If the proper response for Dunham was to converse with those flight attendants directly (or maybe just to mind her own business), then the proper response of American Airlines was to tell Dunham that it is not in the business of policing the private conversations of its employees. But that’s another way we’re being prepared for the police state. While the Left blusters about how they don’t want big corporations to tell us what we can think, their actions say otherwise. They absolutely do want employers to be responsible for the private views and political activity of their employees—so long as the views they are enforcing are politically correct.
So all the elements are being put together. We have a dogma propagated from the top down, a cadre of informants who are proud and eager to report their fellow citizens, and private institutions that are cowed and co-opted, ready to deprive dissidents of their livelihoods.".......
