Letter to the editor: Path of fascism

To the editor:

Kudos to Mr. Bonebrake for his Nov. 5 letter to the editor concerning Jimmy’s Egg. He is right that as a private citizen he can choose not to support a business if he feels the profits will benefit a cause or person he disagree with. It would be wrong to deny anyone the right to operate a business in a community even if a majority of that community is opposed to the political leanings of the business owner. But the vandalism and threats reportedly visited upon Jimmy’s Egg were nothing less than fascism, the use of terror to intimidate political rivals. Unfortunately the “progressive” liberals today seem to be heading down this path.

David Baldwin,
