Chick-fil-A deserves to be punished
Mobile News ^ | July 24, 2012 | JEREMY DAILEY

Posted on 07/26/2012 4:23:29 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat

All the protestors are right. We should boycott Chick-fil-A.

When I first read that COO Dan Cathy was opposed to gay marriage, I burst into tears.

Why does the president of Chick-fil-A, one of the four icons of the American food industry along with Wendy Thomas, Colonel Sanders, and Ronald McDonald, think he has the right to have an opinion? Especially considering it is such a vile one that only about half of the American population share.

Move over, chicken sandwich — Chick-fil-A has invented a new meal. It’s the hate burger, and it comes with an extra side of hate sauce.

Never mind the fact that only one major presidential candidate has ever supported gay marriage, and that one person, President Barack Obama, only took that stance recently. This is different. The Cathy family has a billion times more influence over public policy than any politician ever will.

After all, they are such prolific lobbyists of Congress. If they start influencing our legislators, the debate will be over and all hope for marriage equality will be lost. All because you devoured that delicious 12-pack nugget meal with succulent waffle fries, a large homemade lemonade and Polynesian sauce.

Who knew someone could change the world by eating just one lunch?

Their influence is extended even more by all those hateful, conservative organizations and charities they donate to. The worst is that WinShape Foundation that provides scholarships, foster homes and counseling.

Don’t let its positive impact on the community fool you; it is all part of the plan to brainwash Americans, build an army, reinstate the Crusades and eliminate all those who do not do exactly as the Bible commands.

As hard as it may be, do not be tempted to quit your boycott of the Evil Chicken Empire, particularly by one of their minions. When a sexy Chick-fil-A cashier looks you in the eye, licks his or her lips, and says, “My pleasure,” in your ear, don’t cave in and order a limited-time peach milkshake while you still can.

Remember the cause. Remember the miniscule impact you’re potentially but probably not making.

I mean, it’s true that the thousands and thousands of people employed by Chick-fil-A who may or may not agree with Cathy’s position would be out of a job if it ceased to exist.

But that’s not a big deal. After all, the economy is doing great. They’ll be back on their feet in no time.

Personally, Chick-fil-A won’t be hard for me to boycott. I’ve been changing the world by boycotting things for years; I’ll just add them to my list of products I don’t buy.

For example, I avoid items such as “Brawny” paper towels, “Angel Soft” toilet paper, “Dixie” paper products as well as numerous other name brands. These are all made by Georgia-Pacific, which is owned by Koch Industries, which is owned by the Koch family, which sometimes donates to tea-party affiliated organizations, which sometimes protest gay marriage.

In fact, I’ve given up working just so I can spend all day everyday in Kroger making sure every product I buy with my food stamps doesn’t fund a penny to something I disagree with.

Sticking it to the man, bro!

Point being, it doesn’t matter what the debate is about, whether it be gay rights, abortion, capital punishment or the best Nicholas Cage movie. Privately owned companies have no right to form their own beliefs.

Because Chick-fil-A violated the 11th Commandment, “Thou shall have no personal opinions,” they deserve to be punished.

For now on, every day is Sunday.

And the next time I’m craving chicken during breakfast, I’ll just get mine from Zaxby’s.

Oh, wait.

As I started reading this, I thought, “If I were to parody a libtard writing a vitriolic screed about how hateful and intolerant the president of Chick-fil-A is, it would look very much like this.” Then I found the humor tag at the bottom.

Well played.

I went to chick-fil-A today for lunch just because I wanted to support a company that has the courage to stand up to the bullying of the gay lobby.
Located at harbor and orangethorpe in Fullerton, service was friendly, food was tasty, prices okay, whats not to like?

The only chickens around this free speech issue are Rahm “The Ballerina” Emanuel, The Chicken of Chicago, and the rest of the Democrats who support his suppression of First Amendment rights.

Oh, and they also are slave masters to young blacks in Chicago who might be able to get a job at Chick Fil-A instead of continuing to be addicts to the Chicago, Illinois and Obama welfare drug system.

They are worse Welfare Pimps than the street pimps of Chicago. At least pimps provide you a service where only you get screwed. Rahm “The Welfare Pimp”, makes sure that the taxpayers get screwed and makes them pay through the nose for that “privilege” whether they want it or not.

I suspect that the “Little Ballerina” will one day come out of the closet, but I’m not sure what costume he will be wearing that day. He’d look good in “Pastel pink”, sort of like his policies.

I once saw him work a religious gathering much like a veteran prostitute works a “fleets in” week convention of sailors.

You’ve got to admire the professionalism in it, but it leaves you wanting to take many showers. Like slug slime, Rahm Emanuel’s presence is hard to get off.

As this satire makes clear, the gay mafia could not have chosen a more wholesome target than the Cathy family. When I was working with foster kids, I learned about their extreme generosity—carefully aimed at giving the kids in their programs an opportunity to lead healthy, productive, and morally upright lives. In other words, few of them were destined to become boy prostitutes or loser Democrats.

And the cherry on top of today’s sundae was none other than
the ultra-popoular man of the people, Chicago’s Mayor, Rahm
Emanuel, weighing in on this, joining the anti-Chick Fil-A
project, and stating that “Chick-Fil-A values are not “Chicago
Values”. Just in case everyone was wondering what the values were in my former hometown, rapidly becoming the murder capital of America, where that self-same Mayor, ever the activist, could only merely counsel the killers to “stay away from the kids”. See, he’s got a big heart, and as usual, it’s
“for the children”. It must be tough to preside over Command Central for Obama’s re-election, and help “your city” along on its merry way to oblivion.

I think the best way to punish Chick-Fil-A is to run them out of food. While doing that will take a whole lot of ordering, it’ll be worth it.

Why? Cripes sake! And why did you indulge them with conversation? Leftist activists are the enemy.

Here's what you do next time:
Neither avert your gaze away nor turn to look at them. Do not alter your stride. Certainly don't stop.

Affirmatively raise the finger in their direction and voice the words loud enough for them to hear.

Good God, no wonder we're losing.

Unfortunately, the closest Chick-Fil-A to me is about 90 miles away. I sure wish they had a Bay Area location. Sacramento or Fresno is quite a trip for getting lunch. :=)

The local Chick Fil A (Beavercreek, OH) was jam packed with people today. I had the spicy chicken meal (large). The outside line of cars waiting on the drive thru was wrapped around the place twice. They had 3 employees in the green vests taking orders so the pickup window could get em going fast. People were parking out in the field across the road behind the place and walking in (like me). Funny thing - I got my order within 3 minutes. It was the most efficient operation I’ve ever seen. I hope the gays who attack Chick Fil A go to ...

Makes me want to eat there, if it’s as good as what I’ve been
reading. We have one, I just learned, in Paramus Park in Paramus, NJ.
I’m searching for something a little better than Popeye’s ,
which I’ve come to learn, is a little heavy on the merchandising, and light on the quality.

I'm wondering the same thing. From the site, Zaxby's was started in Georgia, also, and the franchises are now only in the southern states. But it looks like the writer is assuming his closing will be more widely understood than it apparently is.

Maybe someone knows for certain.

Oh, the food at CFA is plenty good; it’s just not cheap, nor should it be. IOW, it’s worth it. Check it out.
Yesterday, I was starving. I went to my neighborhood CFA and ordered a deluxe chicken sandwich and a grilled chicken garden salad. Too much to eat at one sitting so I had the salad for dinner. MMMMM....good.
BTW, the salads are so big that one container of dressing is not enough. I asked for two and was accommodated, happily, by the clerk at no extra charge. I think at some McDs they charge extra for additional condiments.
I’ve been eating at CFA for years, and I don’t give a whit what anyone thinks about it.
