The danger of speaking out

(Via the Drudge Report)

"Progressive-mind customers" only value free speech when you agree with their views--all of them. Whole Foods Markets CEO John Mackey wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal speaking his mind on "health care reform" and now some of his Birkenstock-shod customer base is all in a tizzy and boycotting his stores.

Considering that Harris-Teeter, Food Lion and so on aren't really big in the organic foods market, I have to wonder where these people are going to get their food from. Or maybe they're all going to do the planet a favor and starve themselves to death in protest, eliminating their waste, their contributions to global warming, and their sanctimonious noise pollution.
