Emanuel goes after Chick-fil-A for bossí anti-gay views
Chicago Sun Times ^ | 7/26/12 | FRAN SPIELMAN

Posted on 07/26/2012 6:29:01 AM PDT by wolfman23601

The anti-gay views openly espoused by the president of a fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches have run afoul of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a local alderman, who are determined to block Chick-fil-A from expanding in Chicago.

“Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values,” Emanuel said Wednesday.

Government taking action to ban someone from conducting business over political views. This violates:

1. Freedom of speech (1st amendment) 2. Equal protection under the law (14th amendment)

What Chicago, and Boston, are doing to Chick-Fil-A is blatently illegal. I hope he sues the crap out of them.

Hey Rahm, check with the owners of KFC, McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s etc. Ask them their position on gays.

Chicago has values? Who knew?

We could probably start a long and impressive list of Chicago values:

1. The quick, the dead, and illegal aliens are welcome at the voting booth.

Which is what? A culture of violence and murder in the streets? Where the idiot mayor has to call on King Louie Farrakan and the nation of islam to help restore order?

No thanks. If I owned CFA, I would NOT build there.

Maybe Chick-Fil-A would fit in better with the Chicago values if they promised to murder two of their customers every day.

Rahm should focus his attention on his gang-banging crime-laden murder-haven city rather than on a fast-food restaurant chain. Let customers decided if Chick-Fil-A is a place they want to go. We’re still a free country, well, sort of a free country, but that’s going down the toilet fast thanks to the Rahms and Obamas of the nation.

Since Chick Fil-A’s counter staff is generally polite and helpful, they probably don’t have “Chicago” values.

#1 IF Ron Emanuel represents Chicago Values — Thank God I do Not live in Chicago. Chick -Fil A more closely reflect both my Values and the Values of this Nations Founding fathers -if one believes what was taught by James Wilson College of Philadelphia on the consequences of Marriage under American Law. OR the US supreme Court decision Murphy V.Ramsey and others ,1885 If one believes the American Bar Association in 1999 You and the Law guide — same sex marriage was once not recognized by any State (when that guide was published). I appreciate chick -Fil- A unlike the Reprobates that seek to destroy it — Chick- Fil- A has made
manifest in its practice the very BEST of American traditions.They have earned my respect as sure as these Gay activists like the Mayors of Boston and now Chicago- probably San Francisco and New York City —Denver will all jump on that rainbow colored bandwagon promoting immorality and destruction. So we will be Eating mor chikin.

There will be a check box on all Chicago business license applications that asks if you believe in one-man, one-woman marriage, gay marriage, or civil unions.

We are forced to be tolerant with the imposition of intolerance.

The RahmFather must be yet another self-loathing Jew with the hiring of Calypso Louie's Anti-Semitic Nation of Islam Storm Troopers to patrol the streets of Chicago.

Maybe Rahm feels that the Chicago Police are 'anti-gay marriage', thus fully incapable of doing their job.

***

Yes, but unfortunately those values appear to include condoning weekend handgun violence and murder. Most mayors would address serious problems before attacking the president of a small-business franchisor, whose stores could employ people in his city. Why not let the people decide whose products they wish to purchase? I guess Rahm knows best...

Please help save Chick-Fil-A! It's our family's Saturday night tradition, and even the dog looks forward to Chick-Fil-A day! The food is tasty and nutritious, the salads are fresh and wonderful, and the folks who own the franchises and those who serve the customers are nice, nice people. People of all colors and creeds are treated with warmth and courtesy, and patrons all seem to respond with good manners and happy smiles. I can't say enough good things about both the restaurant AND the fine people who eat there.

I’m not so sure this was Rahm’s personal idea. I think he got an offer he couldn’t refuse from the luggbutts of the Windy City.

Does he prefer the regular, spicy or grilled ChickFilA sandwich?

Does he bury his lattice fries in the backyard for later?

As part of the Progressive Movement, we will soon be required to submit our values to the government so they can be the arbitors of such values, thoughts, and feelings. They will then pass judgement and assign our livelihood based on their interpretation of our values. It’s the only fair thing to do. Get used to it, residents of Rahmabad, the capitol of ILL-ANNOY, aka Madiganistan.

If Chik-Fil-A really wanted to encourage “Chicago Values,” they’d be giving out free meals to gang-bangers and encouraging them to shoot each other (and innocent bystanders) in the parking lot.

One more thing: how many people does the average Chik-Fil-A employ? How much does it pay in sales and property taxes? And doesn’t the chain employ lots of young, minority workers—the same group with a 30-40% unemployment rate?

If I were Chik-Fil-A, I’d set up shop in the towns nearest to Chicago and Boston that will allow them to establish franchises, and market the hell out of those locations. Then, get Fox News to interview the patrons who are driving in from PC land to get a chicken sandwich at the restaurants—and the young people who have jobs thanks to the “homophobic” restaurant chain.

To respect Chicago's values, I guess Chick-Fil-A employees should shoot their customers?

When the Alderman and Da Mayor get the Chicago shooting gallery situation resolved (average Chi-town weekend = Aurora movie, but it happens every weekend), then they might have time to worry about who wants to open a chicken sandwich place.
