Chick-fil-A-Fired
Eagleye Blog ^ | August 9, 2012 | Bethany Stotts

Posted on 08/09/2012 8:04:58 PM PDT by eagleye85

Chick-fil-A’s longstanding stance against gay marriage has raised the ire of pro-homosexual groups in recent days, but also sparked an appreciation day for the restaurant.

On appreciation day, August 1st, former University of Arizona adjunct professor Adam Smith decided that he would order a free water as an opportunity to confront this “hateful” company. “Smith confronted Rachel on ‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,’ a show of support for the chain and its CEO, Dan Cathy, spearheaded by former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee,” according to Philip Caulfield with the New York Daily News. Smith then decided to videoblog the encounter.

As previously noted in my writings for Accuracy in Academia, it’s not a particularly good idea for individuals–especially professionals–to post their political behavior online.

In his video Smith orders a free water and tells Rachel, the drive thru attendant, that he’s doing so “because Chick-fil-A is a hateful corporation.”

“I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here,” he rants. “I don’t understand it. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values,” he continues. Smith insists in the video that Chick-fil-A gives money to “hate groups.” His original video was taken down from Youtube, but you can catch a glimpse of some of the interchange with Rachel in this Fox News broadcast. ...

Most drive-thrus charge for water now. Wonder what would have happened if the young lady said, “that will be ten cents please”?

The left has lost it mentally. I think the most common symptom among liberals today is that they are just mentally ill and/or deranged.

A guy taking about how he’s for traditional marriage and family is now deemed to be hate.

These liberal idiots are ridiculous. They just keep getting more and more ridiculous. This is what the libtard leaders want through their dialectic of “progress”. they have to keep pushing more and more extremes.

Everyone must stop compromising 100% with any leftist. It will drive them crazy because it stops the dialectic in its tracks. Let them really go ballistic and suggest a solution that actually reverses their “progress”.

This is why RINOs are slow death and really witting or unwitting accomplices to the libtard leaders. Compromise == incremental progress, and that progress always goes one way - the liberals’ way.

No more compromise. Shut down the left’s use of the dialectic.

Actually, you can find the video in its entirety since people keep uploading it again. This smug liberal twerp has learned whatever you post on the Internet lasts forever. And honestly, his little 1 min 30 second sneer at Chick-Fil-A is mild compared to the kind of demagoguery from liberal elites I'd hear regularly when I was a student at Columbia. You should hear the commencement address I had to sit through with my graduating class (I and many others ended up booing the @#$%^&*( douche-bag leftie) They sold copies of the speech on VHS and DVD so I'm sure that's floating around somewhere too.

From his apology, with more honest corrections:

"For me and at that moment the main goal of supporting the gay community expressing my hatred for Christians outweighed the collateral damage that Rachel became "

Here’s something you should read before posting any more excerpts of your own work.

collateral damage that Rachel became "

And this is another example of the cesspool that's the mind of a leftist... They see the people they disagree with as something other than human. The dehumanization is a part of what allows them to see human beings as "collateral damage," something of no real value that is destroyed "for the greater good." Something to be "liquidated." Wasn't Stalin fond of saying "to make an omelet you have to break some eggs?"

From his apology,

That really wasn't an apology, as much as an 8 minute attempt as justifying has actions, and trying to shift the blame to everyone else. And a plea for pity. And maybe even a little bit a a pathetic attempt at continuing his "hitting on" Rachel. Remember this last statement to her before driving off?

Exactly. None other than First Friend Bill Ayers once stated that about 30 (?) million of Americans were expandable on the road to Utopia.

There are a large number of people on the left who display the same personality type as Adam Smith. Sanctimonious and intolerant. He attacks a young woman. He has no idea what her personal beliefs are or what her circumstances are. “I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here.” Another paragon of tolerance, Mark Bittman, New York Times food writer, reported on the death of Chick-fil-A employee: “Speaking of pigs, the VP of PR for Chick-fil-A dropped dead of a heart attack the week after the chain’s latest homophobia/anti-gay marriage scandal.” After Rick
Santorum suffered a personal tragedy, Alam Combs accused him of liking to play with dead babies. In response to the appreciation day at Starbucks, did heterosexuals stage a heterosexual “kiss-in?” I don’t think so. Chick-fil-A CEO’s beliefs are no different than the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts, and a majority of voters.

I watched the video, and had my speakers turned way up..
I am severely hearing impaired, and did not understand a lot of what he said.
What WAS the last thing he said to her?

No.

If you don't want to post it all here, I'm not interested in reading it.

Additionally, this .... summarization ..... of what is "old news", long ago posted and discussed at FR, is hardly a reason to go to your blog.

Post your "stuff" in full at FR, and donate something for the use of FR bandwidth, or go find someplace else to blogpimp.

I wonder why he hasn’t made a video showing how many bills he has now and can’t pay. Wonder who he’ll try to blame.

What WAS the last thing he said to her?

"I'm a nice guy, by the way. I'm totally heterosexual. I'm not... No "gay" in me. I just can't stand the hate, you know? It's gotta stop. It's gotta stop, guys. Stand up. Alright, see you guys" (drives off).

It really sounds like this was a guy trying to at least flirt with a girl, even after he showed what an a$$-hat he was. I especially like the part where after he proves what a nasty person he was, he tries to assure her that he's really a "nice guy."

I agree.

Would this guy have an apology video had he not been fired the next day? Of course not! He would be out spiking the ball over his damage to the image of CFA.

We must abandon any attempt at compromise with these people. They must be STOPPED.

Adam Smith has clearly learned about the invisible hand of economics. I’m surprised that bigot never read his namesake’s work and didn’t understand the natural consequences of poor behavior in public.

LOL, well, maybe she will call me an old grouchy poopyhead, read your silver tongued palaver, and straighten up and fly right.

That would be fine.

Those who want to use FR to hone their mental and writing skills must follow the site rules you identified.

Just writing a short blurp such as "I can explain why Obama is a loser .... go to my blog if you want to find out why!" are blogpimps and such bad behavior should not be encouraged.

LOL, but then, I'm preaching to the choir.

Have a good day Shibumi.

Personally I think such pimps should be severely punished.

Public flogging, exposure in the stocks, perhaps even flaying.

Thank you Mark, for taking the time to post that for me.

This man is a sociopath.
They cannot be shamed, because they deflect any kind of shame as being the fault of someone else.

I just hope he leaves Rachel alone!

Chick-fil-A-Fired

Not a good headline- I read it to mean that CFA had been “fired” from somewhere, maybe a college campus.

LOL,

Shibumi took a "kinder, gentler" approach.

I took a "firmer, cut the nonsense" approach.

You took a "nuke 'em till they glow, shoot 'em in the dark" approach.

Whatever works is fine with me.
