Butchers in France have written to the interior minister to ask for protection against violence and intimidation from vegans.
James Madison wrote in the 10th Federalist papers about such tyranny of the majority or in this case tyranny of the minority both fit below:
“The latent causes of faction are thus sown in the nature of man . . . A zeal for different opinions concerning religion, concerning government, and many other points, as well of speculation as of practice; an attachment to different leaders ambitiously contending for pre-eminence and power . . . have, in turn, divided mankind into parties, inflamed them with mutual animosity, and rendered them much more disposed to vex and oppress each other than to co-operate for their common good.”
Sarcasm: Can you see historians on Wikipedia, in documenting the second great French revolution, trying to sanitize the statement: "...and the leader of the resistance proudly walked up to the butcher, massive in size from years of wielding his ax of dismemberment, and issued a challenge of dueling by swatting the butcher in the face with an organic curd of broccoli ..."
Reality: Sadly, bad behavior is the norm in trying to advance a cause instead of civility.
