Social Justice Warriors

The Christian bakers from Oregon whose bakery has been driven out of business through legal action are now facing a fine of $135 000 for refusing to bake a cake for a pair of lesbians:
The state of Oregon proposed a $135,000 fine to be levied on the Christian-owned bakery, with the money to be paid to a lesbian couple to compensate for their pain and suffering when the cake-makers declined to bake pastry for their wedding.

So, there we have it: the Social Justice Warriors, not content to have driven this bakery out of business, are now trying to prevent people from giving the bakers money to pay their monumental fine. It is not enough for the SJWs that the Klein family business was destroyed. And it is not enough that the Kleins are now struggling to feed their five children, and facing a $135,000 fine that will probably drive them to bankruptcy.

Nope, the progressive stance is now to grind those people to dust, in the name of social justice.
Let that sink in for a moment. These people were force to close their business and have had their lives totally disrupted, and now are being fined for $135 000, because they inconvenienced a pair of lesbians, and possibly hurt their feelings. They have also faced constant harassment, up to and including this not-at-all-a-hate-crime:
And Melissa Klein previously told TheBlaze that someone broke into the Sweet Cakes truck in September 2013 — a vehicle the family uses to advance its business.

The truck was parked in the Kleins’ driveway, which was particularly nerve-wrecking for the family, as their home is in a highly secluded area — one that is nowhere near where their former shop.

“Somebody came up into our driveway and rummaged through our truck and took stuff out,” she told TheBlaze. “The really strange thing is, they didn’t steal anything, they just made a mess. It kind of was a little creepy.”
This is justice? Might I suggest that the pejorative "Social Justice Warrior" is too kind of a euphemism. There is a better term, since warriors typically have a sense of honor. These are social justice brownshirts, or perhaps stormtroopers. Indeed, replacing the swastika with a "marriage equality" badge may not seem so out-of-place in the near future, terrifying as that vision may seem.

History rarely really repeats itself--but it often rhymes very strongly.

Update: Joss Wedon gets trashed on twitter by the Feminazi wing of the Social Justice Brownshirt movement, because (wait for it) he does not have enough strong female characters in his works (specifically, in the latest Avengers flick). They don't do reality very well. John C Wright has the autopsy on his blog.
