It would seem that Faye Boutses believes that the persecution of this particular business is not based on any wrongdoing, but is more motivated by the success that these chains of fast food restaurants have enjoyed. Also, presumably, the publicity that can be derived by attacking such a high profile institution of capitalism, especially one commonly associated with children and the middle class family, is not lost on this poster either. Just as competitive jealousy from other restaurants is implied by the Australian, so also there would perhaps seem to be a wider issue, a 'jealousy' directed towards the system of capitalism itself by those who propose alternatives.

Such connections, if they exist, will be revealed in time. Attempting to associate a chain of restaurants with a radical philosophy, based on racism, that advocated conquest through total warfare and genocide does not positively add to your case.

(Not that we all don't invoke the fascist bogeyman, from time to time...)
