If the internet existed in 1958:

"How uncivil!  Why can't they protest nicely at home?"

Concern trolls like:  "This is bad... for them.  Families are just trying to enjoy a nice meal and they are taking up all the seats.  You know, they will never win people over to their side acting like this."

Followed by legislation that allows you to murder anyone who inconveniences you from obtaining a club sandwich.

You forgot the SWAT team coming in to clear the drug store and drag out the participants.

You post that as if those weren't standard responses at the time (except in the last one they just killed them regardless of the law).
