Ever since they were booted out of actual political power by voters, the left has come to rely on the mob instead of the ballot box.
Social media pogroms, boycotts and endless petitions have become the preferred methods of “persuasion” and God help those that don’t fall in line and surrender.
In addition to gun bans, another target of the tyranny of the leftist authoritarians are plastic straws and they have had enormous success in flexing their social media muscle to get them banned. Don’t be fooled by the insignificant straws, the greater purpose here is honing the intimidation machine to razor sharpness.
One of the nation’s major fast food chains is however defying the mob as McDonald’s has told the cyber goons to suck it.

Via USA Today “McDonald’s shareholders vote against plastic straw study”:
McDonald’s shareholders Thursday turned aside a proposal to take the first step toward a ban on plastic straws.
A shareholder proposal backed by a consumer group received only 7.65% of the vote at the company’s annual meeting. The measure would have required McDonald’s to prepare a report to shareholders about the business risks of using plastic straws.
The rejection was not unexpected given that McDonald’s management had recommended against it. In doing so, it cited a series of major steps it is taking to cut waste and boost the company’s sustainability image.
The fast-food chain distributes an estimated 95 million single-use straws around the world every day, according to the consumer advocacy group SumOfUs.
A look at the website of SumOfUs is a dead giveaway that it is another tentacle of the vast Soros octopus with pressure campaigns on the following:
Stop credit card giants from funding fascist hatred and violence
Tell Amazon to stop streaming NRATV, the US gun lobby’s propaganda channel
Marriott, Hilton, and Holiday Inn: stop subsidizing gun violence and end your NRA discount programs.
Now who else has been promoting these same campaigns?
The stink of Soros is everywhere.
