The Attack On Chick-Fil-A Is An Attack On The Freedom Of Speech Of Every American

Robert Wenzel
July 27, 2012

If you are an American, your freedom of speech is under attack. Over the past week, remarks made by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy defending traditional marriage have sparked controversy all over the nation. Many Americans have expressed support for his remarks and many have expressed disdain for his remarks. And all of that is fine, because in the United States people are supposed to be able to express their opinions. But in Chicago, Boston and other U.S. cities, politicians are actually promising to keep any more Chick-fil-A stores from opening because their CEO does not support gay marriage, and that crosses the line. When politicians threaten to ban a business from their cities just because the CEO does not hold the "politically correct" position on a social issue that is an attack on the freedom of speech of every American.
You see, the truth is that the enforcers of political correctness in America are very "tolerant" except when somebody disagrees with them. The politically correct control freaks that are trying to ban Chick-fil-A from their cities would try to ban Chick-fil-A from opening any more restaurants in the entire country if they had the power to do so. The goal of these politically correct control freaks is to intimidate. They want to end debate on these social issues by shutting down the free speech of the opposition. In the end, if America continues to go down this path it will end up looking just like many of the other totalitarian regimes throughout history where free speech has been banned.

Once again, in America everyone has the right to say whatever they want to about Chick-fil-A.

However, when politicians try to ban a company from doing business in their areas because one of the company executives does not hold the "correct" political view about an issue that is a major problem.

This week, Chicago alderman Joe Moreno wrote a piece for the Chicago Tribune in which he explained why he is going to refuse to allow Chick-fil-A to open a new restaurant in his ward....

There are consequences for one's actions, statements and beliefs. Because of this man's ignorance, I will deny Chick-fil-A a permit to open a restaurant in my ward. Apparently he has the power to single-handedly block the new restaurant that Chick-fil-A was hoping to open up....

Home Depot in the 2500 block of North Elston Avenue wants to sell a piece of its land so that a Chick-fil-A restaurant can open in the 1st Ward, where I am alderman. It would be the fast-food chain's first "stand-alone" Chicago restaurant. But to subdivide the land, the companies need my approval. Because the CEO of Chick-fil-A will not conform to Joe Moreno's social values, Chick-fil-A is now essentially banned from that entire section of Chicago.

Not that Chick-fil-A will be able to open up new stores in other areas of Chicago either.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is promising to do what he can to keep Chick-fil-A from expanding any further 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" Apparently anyone that does not believe in gay marriage does not "reflect Chicago values".

But this is just the beginning. One group is trying to have Chick-fil-A kicked off of college campuses all over America. The following is from a recent CBS News article....

The gay rights group Equality Illinois is launching a campaign against Chick-Fil-A – petitioning universities and lawmakers to evict the fast food restaurant from their campuses and planning a “kiss-in” campaign by gay and lesbian couples outside Chick-Fil-A restaurants. The message is clearly one of intimidation.

Either conform or suffer the consequences.

Sadly, politicians all over America are reacting just like politicians in Chicago have done.

The Mayor of Boston, Thomas Menino, has pledged to do all that he can to keep Chick-Fil-A out of the entire city of Boston. The following is what he told the Boston Herald on Thursday....

"Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion" But Chick-fil-A does not discriminate.

They serve anyone that wants a chicken burger and they are open to hiring anyone.

It is just that the CEO of the company does not think gay marriage is a good idea (along with half of the rest of America) and this absolutely infuriates the politically correct crowd.

On Thursday Mayor Menino also added the following....

"That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail." In addition, he penned a furious letter to Chick-fil-A headquarters that you can read right here.

The town of Mountain View, California has also blocked a new Chick-fil-A restaurant from opening up.

In the months to come we will probably see much more of this.

And Chick-fil-A is probably going to get booted off of a whole bunch of college campuses.

In February, Northeastern University refused to allow a Chick-fil-A store to open on their campus, and student groups around the country are already mobilizing to oppose Chick-fil-A on more campuses.

This is the kind of religious fervor the politically correct crowd has. You are either with them or you are dog manure.

For example, Roseanne Barr wished cancer on those that eat at Chick-Fil-A on Twitter the other day.

So what were these supposedly "bigoted" comments that started this uproar in the first place?

The following is what Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy recent said during an interview with the Baptist Press....

"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that" Wow, that is some pretty controversial stuff, eh?

Certainly this could not be enough to spark a nationwide protest.

Perhaps it is what he said recently on "The Ken Coleman Show"....

"I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.' I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about." Is that statement really worth going crazy over?

To the politically correct crowd it is.

They simply cannot tolerate a major public figure such as the CEO of Chick-fil-A saying that gay marriage is wrong. Plus they are always looking for more ways to chill the free speech of others that would speak out against gay marriage. The following is what John Hayward of Human Events said about all of this recently....

"The name of the game being played against Chick-fil-A involved ending the discussion, by ruling one side of this important social debate completely out of order, and dismissing their beliefs as unworthy of respect. All resistance to gay marriage is instantly transmuted into personal hatred of gay people. On the other hand, criticism of traditional marriage proponents cannot be viewed as hateful, no matter how angrily it might be expressed. It’s a rigged heads-we-win, tails-you-lose game." The politically correct crowd does not want a debate about gay marriage.

What they want to do is to completely intimidate the other side and shut down the debate completely so that they can win by default.

Wednesday, August 1st, has been designated as "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day". I encourage all of you to go out and buy a chicken burger that day to show your support of free speech.

If we don't stand up for free speech now, soon it will be totally gone.

Already, the name of Jesus is becoming a forbidden word all over America. Just consider the following examples....

-All over the United States chaplains are being banned from praying in the name of Jesus.

-You can say just about anything you want in U.S. public schools these days except for anything having to do with Jesus. In fact, if you are a public school student and you try to talk about Jesus with your fellow classmates there is a good chance that you will be suspended from school.

-In many areas of America today, if you want to go out on a public sidewalk and discuss your faith with others there is a good chance that you will be arrested.

-If you are anti-abortion, if you have "radical theology" or if you are against "the New World Order", there is a chance that you will be labeled as a "potential terrorist" by the Department of Homeland Security.

In the end, we will end up just like North Korea if we are not very careful.

In North Korea, if you say something that is not "politically correct" you and your entire extended family could literally be on the next train to a concentration camp.

Today it is estimated that 70,000 Christians are being held captive in concentration camps in North Korea. Many of those believers are likely to spend the rest of their lives toiling in conditions that are absolutely nightmarish simply because they believe the "wrong thing".

If you don't think that such a thing could ever happen in America, you are dead wrong.

We are moving a little bit more in that direction every single day, and this latest attack on Chick-fil-A is another example of this trend.

When you attack the freedom of speech of one group of Americans, you attack the freedom of speech of every American.

Once our freedom of speech is gone, it will be incredibly difficult to ever get back.

Stand up for freedom of speech while you still can.

“So if he won’t bow before the god of political correctness, we’re going to destroy him ... “

There’s a new Chick-fil-A coming to Muncie.

I spoke with the loudest voice I could about this issue today..

I was near one of their stores and brought a client there for lunch.

a risk yes.. The client did ask “why here” and I said why not? Good food, fast, and you have about 20 minutes.

Turns out the client and I agreed about the issue.

As an added bonus.. I got the larger account from him I was gunning for!

Take that Obama, Chick-a-fil and I BUILT that ;)

Oh ya, the store was very busy as well.

WHAT? Bellingham? When I go to the store locator at their website, it lists the closest one to Washington as being in Boise, Idaho. They don’t even LIST Washington on their states. Am I missing something? Cause I would SURE like to check it out! All these posts are making me crave a chicken sandwich!

And likewise an attack on the Catholic family that supplies their own health insurance to their employees being told to shut down their business or abandon their faith by the DOJ in Colorado, I think.

This must be a real new Chick-Fil-A restaurant - since according to Chick-Fil-A's own website's restaurant locator link, the nearest Chick-Fil-A to Seattle is in Boise, ID, located at Boise State University. There are no Chick-Fil-A's listed in either Oregon or Washington State. Their Locator link is below:

http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Locations/Locator

I would love to show my support as well and get some food at one of their restaurant's but I don't feel like driving (can't afford the gas really) from the Seattle Area to Boise (800+ mile round trip), or to northern California (Sacremento Area, 1,400+ mile round trip from Seattle) just for some Chicken Burgers.

It is not an attack on free speech. No one is locking executives of Chick-fil-a up. It is just a really stupid exercise of freedom of speech and assembly by the homosexual lobby. I was at fil-a tonite and it was packed.

No burgers. But, they have chicken sandwiches, chicken strips, chicken nuggets... chicken everything. Make sure to try the coleslaw, the waffle fries, and the lemonade, too. Or, anyone on a diet can order a salad there.

I beg to differ. This is absolutely an attack on free speech - Government officials are threatening sanctions upon a business man because o his personally held beliefs which he has expressed publicly.

Gay rights groups protesting or boycotting are not attacks on free speech because that is their free speech. However. when representatives of government entities make statements as those made by officials in Boston and Chicago - you bet your bippy it is a 1st amendment attack.

Those things are like heroin.

What we should do is buy a bunch of Chick fil A gift cards and give them as gifts to all your family and friends.

It will be delicious to send them to your intolerant-self-righteous-busybody liberal friends and family members and also hand them out to people who stand on the corners and claim they are willing to "work for food".

"Here go have a Spicy Chicken Deluxe sandwich on me."

They'll get hooked and they will have to return. They will spend all their drug proceeds and welfare money there.

As a young pup, like some sort of conditioned Pavlovian response I learned that if I didn’t actually feel my arteries hardening as I chowed down on, say, a KFC thigh or jumbo breaded pork tenderloin or a wad of hamburger on a bun—with the grease dripping down the sides of my face making my chin shiny and then you hold up your napkin and you can see through it ... well, then it could’t be good fast food.

So eating Chick-fil-a is confusing. How can it be so good?
Now it’s especially tasty knowing it makes the libs crazy.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it on the official CFA day, but I went for the first time the other day, and I will be back! The best fast food experience I’ve had in I don’t know how long. Unfortunately, it’s a bit out of the way for me, but I will be a regular, and I let both the franchise owner and HQ know that!

I noticed they serve breakfast, so I’ll give that a try tomorrow. I have a Dr appt in the morning, and it’s just a couple of miles extra on the way in from my Dr.

How long have you been a Freeper and yet you don't understand the culture war?

Where have you been.

When homosexuals choose to boycott a business because they don't like the owner's views, then that is the American way.

However when a politician who has been given government power uses that power to squelch the thoughts of business owners and punishes business for thinking and believing differently than they do, then they are not only attacking free speech but they are doing in the way the Nazis and other Totalitarian regimes have done it throughout history.

Read some history. Learn about the constitution. Then after you have educated yourself, you can start posting here again and you won't be called on the carpet for being ignorant.

Their "kiss in" was supposed to be on July 25. I showed up for breakfast, lunch and dinner and didn't see even one so called protester (although it would obviously take 2 to "kiss").

They won't show up because they think we are all right wing gun toting nutcases. They've been conditioned to think that way. If they do show up, then anyone there should just hand them a gift card and tell them how much they appreciate the fact that they came there to support Dan Cathy. If they spit on you, call the cops.

It is not an attack on free speech. No one is locking executives of Chick-fil-a up. It is just a really stupid exercise of freedom of speech and assembly by the homosexual lobby. I was at fil-a tonite and it was packed.


Rahm Emmanual is refusing to allow the chain permits to open in Chicago based on their core values.

What do you call that?

If a government official says you cannot operate your business because of your religious or political or social views, isn’t that the government punishing you for exercising free speech? Y

You don’t have to put someone in jail to violate their rights under the first amendment.

I have been showing my disgust for Dan Cathy and his opinions on Homo marriage by buying lunch at Chik-fil-A every day this week.

Got to love the double-standards. The Sissy Marys™ squeal demanding tolerance, then are intolerant when hetros stand up to their priniples.

Would it be a hate crime if hetros demonstrated at a business that supported the gay agenda?

Why don't the hetros make noise and start a movement to boycott Chicago and Boston?

I do that now with San Francisco Fagsicko. No tourist dollars. If forced to pass through the state traveling, I spend little as possible.
