Chick-fil-A Bully Performs Bizarre "Apology" Video Out of "Forrest Gump"
Self | August 4, 2012 | PJ-Comix

Posted on 08/04/2012 7:22:49 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

One of the commenters on the Adam Smith "apology" VIDEO made the astute observation that Smith's "apology" sounded a lot like the "apology" made by Wesley, a hippie character in the movie "Forrest Gump," after he hit Jenny. I looked up the script of "Forrest Gump and the commenter was dead on in the comparison. Here is Wesley's "apology" to Jenny:

WESLEY: Jenny? Things got a little out of hand. It's just this war and that, that lyin' son-of-a-bitch Johnson. I would never hurt you. You know that.

And just like Wesley, Smith brings up extraneous political stuff to excuse his behavior. Also note that Smith calls Rachel "collateral damage." Sheesh!

I searched but couldn't find the film clip of Wesley's "apology" to Jenny. If you can find it, please post here.

This idiot makes a pathetic attempt at apology and comes off looking like a faggot whose ox has been deeply gored.

Hats off to his employer for firing his worthless ass!

Obozo and his homosexual staff might find a place for him at the White Hut.

Here is another great reply to the "apology" video:

LOL, looked like his wife was off camera holding cue cards....along with their mortgage and car notes.

Rachel has become the focus of attention of a psychotic man. This is not good.

Another good comment:

If you have to post a 7 minute apology video, you're doing it wrong.

Apologies ,Apologies....It seems these days,so many digressives and others are making BS statements and lying and when caught then make apologies.
It is so phony,typical and so transparent that they are apologizing cause they were caught,period
There is no apology for being a total AH and in this case it is what you are Adam and who you are, a total AH.
The comments at you tube are a sampling of the publics feelings about Adam and his BS apology.

My moma used to tell me, after I screwed up doing the same bad behavior,” don’t give me that apology crap quit repeating the bad behavior and you wont have to apologize

Sorry, I just can’t muster up the slightest bit of sympathy for him getting his butt handed to him. Perhaps we’ll find out his true leanings once his wife leaves him.

I was thinking the same thing.we havent heard the last of this AH and if I were Rachels guardian(s) I would be on the alert and even bring this “apology” to the attention of the local law enforcement people.

He wanted to be an internet sensation, a hero who’s video was shown on every news cast but it backfired. And he is only sorry that it did.

He basically says that he is a strong supporter of gays but became incensed that Chick-fil-a had so many supporters at that particular restaurant that day that he became unhinged on this girl in the drive thru.

The unfortunate thing is that some sappy liberal bleeding heart will hire this AH precisely because of his belittling rant.

Ah ha - the "war made me do it" defense. But what's Vietnam and LBJ got to do with it?

I hope they count it as fair use and let it stay up there. The source will be downloadable too, BTW.

Taranto of the WSJ’s Best of the Web, uses that phrase, “It’s just this war and that lying SOB Johnson”, frequently in his column, usually for similar ‘apologies’.

I for one would like to know where and when he lands. His new employer should have some semblance of whom they are hiring and let them risk their company value structure by retaining his employment if they so determine it is worth it.

No mercy. The liberal world has no mercy upon religion and values and morals. This smarmy self avowed atheist who claims to have been Christian for 25 years (his wife claims this same thing too) have four children they are destroying and this so-called supporter of gay marriage and insufferable narcissist with a closet so deep that he is hiding in needs to learn that leaving Christ has a penalty. Liberalism is a mental disorder, no doubt about it.

When liberals apologize what they’re really doing is just trying to change your mind.

Watched the whole video. He is doing a total CYA. World class Clymer. Big Time. Was not an apology. It was all about him.

Apology not accepted (and you are so gay, not that there’s anything wrong with that ~s~).

Saw the movie again just a few days ago and that pair of scenes (when he slaps Jenny and gets his a** royally kicked by Forrest and later bus side as he gives the pathetic “blame the war” apology) were striking because they portrayed the character of the typical leftist so well. Loud and cowardly pri**s who get by with their acting out when their opponents are women or few in numbers. If that creates a situation where they lose something (like Jenny or their career) they’re incapable of taking responsibility and can only blame outside malevolent forces. Bullies who need to be handled in the only way that works with such ... sound pulverization.

I worry for her and others he may harm. He is in deep financial distress, owing almost a million dollars to Wells Fargo. He is following the instructions of a person he does not know on the internet. He admits that he “loses it” from time to time and refers to innocent people as “collateral damage”. He just got fired from his job. What more do the police need to profile this guy and protect the public?

It doesn’t seem as though this “apology” is winning over viewers. The “dislikes” now outnumber the “likes” by about 8:1.

I don’t know . . . but he kind of looks like the next mass murderer . . .

Chick-fil-a and Rachel, no doubt, has put him over the edge (not the mention the hundreds of people that were enjoying a chicken sandwich that day) . . .

I have not watched the “apology”. If it is on youtube, does that mean he will get paid for hits? I just do not want to give guy any financial incentive.

That really wasn't much of an apology. It was simply someone trying to justify the unjustifiable (and I think he's even trying to justify it to himself, but failing), and trying to portray himself as a victim.

He proves that he's every bit the scumbag we thought he was.

Reminds me of that Groucho Marx line “Ice water? You want ice water? Peel an onion - that’ll make your eyes water”.

Or in this case “Order some ice water, berate the minimum wage worker behind the window, post your idiocy online and lose your job. That’ll make your eyes water”.

Haven’t you learned from liberals, that profiling is a form of prejudice, and that law enforcement should not profile people?????

You blew it (if you'll pardon the expression) when you heard something not to your liking, and you couldn't rationally deal with it.

,,,,,,, let's see here ,,,, he drives up to the window with a video cam running ,,,, makes his stupid remarks to an unsuspecting young girl ,,, posts it on the internet because he's so proud of his stance on gay MARRIAGE and waits for the overwhelming approval of his video to go viral . But that's not what happened ,,,, there was no overwhelming support for him instead he was condemned for his senseless verbal assault on this nice young girl just doing her job . It was shameful ,, but I don't for a minute believe Smith is truly sorry for what he did but rather how it turned out instead . He surely belongs with the company of those 2.8 percenter’s who lack Christian values or perhaps even a soul .
