One point she seemed to be trying to make, unless I mis-heard her, was that you shouldn't be campaigning/protesting against globalisation and at the same time spending your money in Starbucks?
Seems a fair point to me.
Yes, she had a point, but she appeared to make it badly; part of the objections were to her extrapolating a single cup of coffee at Starbucks to mean "taking everything that capitalism provides". Her main fault, however, was to imagine that she would be treated fairly on that programme. She would have been wise to have avoided giving them any ammunition.
