Recently, NARAL Texas attempted to solicit a contribution from Summermoon Coffee, a South Austin establishment; Summermoon declined in the following e-mail:
To Whom It May Concern,As you can see, Summermoon included a link to the short pro-life film 180.
Please take us off your list of contacts. We are Pro Life and do not believe in the killing of precious innocent babies. I would recommend watching this video to put it in perspective. www.180movie.com
In response, NARAL posted to their Facebook page:
Then the Burnt Orange Report chimed in:
Long story short: if you're looking for a caffeine fix in the South Austin area and you aren't interested in supporting a business that is fervently anti-choice and actively involved in spreading offensive propaganda, find another coffee shop.So far, so good; NARAL and Burnt Orange Report have a right to let politics intrude on their purchases. Cahnman's Musings supports Chick-fil-a and attempts to avoid Starbucks for the same reason. What happened next, however, was yet another revealing moment from the pro-abortion left.
The totalitarians came out in force. They attacked Summermoon's website to the point that it had to shut down. The comments on Summermoon's Facebook page were equally threatening:
It's one thing that they're anti-choice, but a whole extra layer of disgust that they'd compare abortion with the holocaust and send a video instead of simply declining to donate to NARAL. Shame shame shame. That's no way for an Austin establishment to behave...Nowanna Tellya:
why get coffee from misogynists when there are so many other options?Derek Amarpreet Whitman:
Anti-choice suckers.This is a longstanding technique of the left. It's reputational terrorism. It's designed to pummel you in the court of public opinion until you decide 'I don't want any trouble,' and shut up.
It's the same thing they've done to advertisers for Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh in the past; then again, what would you expect from people who chant 'Hail Satan' and 'Tampons are a woman's right'?!?
On September 6th, pro-lifers will express their appreciation for Summermoon Coffee. Cahnman's Musings will be there. This act of reputational terrorism will not stand....

Update: On a related note, it looks like the White House is also engaged in pro-abortion trolling.
