Chick-fil-A boycott? You’re doing it wrong: Reports, photos show it is a total fail

Even as Chicago, Boston and now other cities are trying to shut out Chick-fil-A for not toeing a leftist line, citizens are supporting free speech and opposing tolerance tyrants.

(Lots of pictures and tweets showing the boycott failed at the site.)

We don't have any here in my area of Michigan either. First time I ever heard of them was seeing their “eat more chicken” cow posters driving through Kentucky in the 90s I think.

"What would be the best way for Chik-Fil-A supporters to respond? "

Any protestors that might show up are self-absorbed narcissists demanding your attention and trying to provoke a response. Ignore them; they have no power over you.

There were zero protestors and tons of customers when I went.

Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday because of their belief in God, but I think you knew that!

I thought I could order gift cards on line, here’s what I found:

Chick-fil-A Cards: A Great Gift for Any Occasion

The Chick-fil-A Card is available for purchase, reload and redemption at participating Chick-fil-A Restaurants. Check your balance at any participating Chick-fil-A Restaurant or by calling 1-888-232-1864. The Chick-fil-A Card is not yet available to purchase online.

Note: The Chick-fil-A Card may not be available for purchase in all Chick-fil-A Restaurants.

Chick-fil-A Cards are not redeemable for cash except as required by applicable law and then only to the extent required by applicable law.

Liberals only listen to one another talk. They fall for their own lies and live in a distorted world. It’s always shocking to them when they realize they are only 17% of the population.

People don’t want to harm homos and they don’t want homos up their fannies, either. Liberals are always violating the boundries of normal people. It is a mental illness. They would kill people who object to their disordered personalities if they could get away with it. administratively.o

The whole idea is for gays to kiss their same sex partners; I am sure this is because they are really just Anti-Children and want to expose Christian Youth to their deviant behavior which ought to be confined to the bedroom rather than family restruants....

Families, especially those with several kids, ought to walk their kids right through the groups, ignoring the kissers, and sit down for a nice supper at Chick Fil A. That will frost the fools, not being able to get a rise out of the 'breeders'.

One of the comments at the site about enjoying a bigot burger and haterade, that was laugh out loud funny.

At home I’m 40 miles from a Chick-fil-a but on August 1st I’ll happen to be a 1/2 mile from one and staying at a hotel with a good frig and microwave. I’m stocking up!!

The ignorant self righteous amoral busybody know-it-all homosexual Nazis don’t know that. :-)

They’ll show up on Sunday and think their boycott was a success.

Then on Monday, we’ll all go there for lunch.

There are two CFA’s near me, one less than two miles and the other less than five miles.

No one goes to them. They are too busy.

What would be the best way for Chik-Fil-A supporters to respond? Loudly reciting the Lord’s prayer? Set up a human perimeter around the restaurant? Or just ignore them?

Hand a protester a $5 gift card to Chick-fil-A. If he throws it in the trash, then it means Chick-fil-A will get a 100% profit on your purchase. The only way he can reduce the profit margin of the store is to redeem it for food.

Conundrum.

Watch these angry homo Nazis snarl at you.

Catch it on your cell phone.

I have forwarded this story to friends, family and co-workers to show their support for a great company, not to mention the best chicken sandwich ever. There is one in Kansas City KS in the Legends area not far from Kansas Speedway. I hope the restaurant chain has a record busting day!.........God Bless Chick-fil-A and it’s Christian heritage!

For those new to CFA, their breakfast items are actually even better than their standard lunch/dinner stuff. The chicken biscuits and sausage biscuits are outstanding. They also have ‘minis’ which are their breast nuggets on little Parkerhouse yeast rolls. I wish they served breakfast all day.

This makes me so happy. I went there twice for lunch this week. Plan to go again on appreciation day. The secret ingredient in their sandwiches is liberal outrage. Tastes delicious!

I reminded everyone I knew yesterday of the planned “buy in” on August 1.
My office bought lunches there today, as a kind of trial run for next week.
It was packed, double lines, had extra staff on hand, and still managed to provide decent service. The food was very good.
I plan on buying breakfast there on Aug 1, on my way in to work. I'm told they have great biscuits and gravy.
The potential Aug 1 supportive public crowd seems liable to be larger than a “Friday after Thanksgiving Day” sale.

My advice is to be patient, and be prepared to buy a gift card that day. I can't imagine how else they will possibly be able to adequately prepare for, or supply the demand otherwise...

Marriage is a legally recognized union of one man with one woman. No one should be forced against their will to enter into that union, and some legal eligibility restrictions are placed regarding age of consent, against incest, and for mental capacity reasons.

There is no compelling reason to change that basic concept.

Not for one man and four women, not for one woman and four men, not for same sex partners of whatever quantity, and not to abuse minor children or animals, or to include inanimate objects.

Homosexual men can marry Lesbians. They are not being discriminated against. Lesbians can marry straight or homosexual men.

I don’t get the Transexual and Bisexual issue on marriage. A bisexual man can marry a woman and still have his flings with men and vice versa. A transexual can marry another transexual as long as one was born a male and the other was born a female.

Where is the discrimination?

Gift cards. Give your liberal relative or friend a $100 gift card to Chick fil A for Christmas. Take out your cell camera and film it as they open the card. Watch them THANK YOU for it. Post it on facebook.

We have both Chik and In n Out nearby. Both chains have are privately owned and have Christian roots. They both have staff’s that look like America..all races, but they all speak English and are presentable. They both pay well to get those people. They both have really good fast food...at prices at or below McD’s. They both are packed..they are doing something right and I wish they would go public so I could invest.

No you don't. Carl Karcher went public and he was muscled out by a bunch of lefty pervert stockholders who fired him because he was pro life.

Let them stay private. Then they don't have to answer to a bunch of Wall Street pencil necked lefties. If you want to buy into these companies, then marry a Snyder or a Cathy.

You can buy into a franchise in Chick fil A. Of course you have to follow their strict rules and business plan. In and Outs are all owned and operated by the Snyder family.

Chick-Fil-A is perhaps the least known fast food joint. I’ve never been to one let alone think of going there. That’s soon to change as I am doing what many people who’ve never been to one are doing. EATING AT CHICK-FIL-A. I’m anxious to see a news report where Chick-Fil-A says their sales are through the roof.. All time high! Watch.

Simply pray for them. And if a protester would happen to come up and begin a conversation, remember to speak the Truth in love. Darkness cannot exist in the Light.
