City Hall turns chicken sandwich into thought crime
Chicago Tribune ^ | 27 july 2012 | John Kass

Posted on 07/27/2012 6:49:17 AM PDT by rellimpank

With Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel making a national issue out of a simple chicken sandwich, I just had to try one for myself.

So I visited a Chick-fil-A for lunch, though I don’t mind telling you I sure was worried. Even biting into a chicken sandwich these days could be considered a thought crime.

But it turned out there are a few Americans plucky enough to eat chicken sandwiches in public. The drive-thru line at the Chick-fil-A in Lombard was clotted with cars, and the parking lot was absolutely jammed. Inside, it was so crowded that strangers sat with strangers to eat their scrumptious sandwiches.

That's Rahm, "Dead Fish" Emanuel...

"In between his stints in Washington, Emanuel got rich working as an investment banker. He once sat on the board of Freddie Mac and recuses himself from any Congressional votes on the mortgage giant."

"Has been known to send out cheesecakes from Eli's Bakery in Chicago to campaign donors and the many Democratic candidates he has recruited over the years. Once, when a pollster made him angry, Emanuel sent him a dead fish."

I’d love to read it, but I don’t want to sign up. I do love Chick Fil A, though.

The worst bigots in the country now are the homosexual lobby, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan.

That's Rahm, "Dead Fish" Emanuel...

aka, Rahm "The Ballerina"...

From the New York Daily News:

Rahm Emanuel's role as pointe man means new respect for boys & ballet

BY Joe Dziemianowicz
Monday, November 17th 2008

Belly up the barres, boys. It's a perfect time to take the leap and don those tights - or maybe that's vice versa.

With the flurry of attention for the ballet history of congressman Rahm Emanuel (President-elect Obama's pick for White House chief of staff), it's suddenly become a lot cooler to be a guy who knows his way around toeshoes, turnouts and tights.

Cass can be good. Wish I could read the whole article but the Trib requires a subscription.

The non-issue sure takes the discussion away from the massive weekly murder rate in that corrupt gun control welfare-state Rat cesspool, doesn’t it?

By not allowing this fast food joint to open up they just cost some black kids a job. Plus, Cathy gives out a lot of scholarships.

Someone should ask Rahm if there’s a homosexual oriented business that will send some kids to gay college.

I always wondered who took the pick of Weiner. Now I think I have an idea.

I drove by a Chick-Fil-A last night at about 8:40 PM:

Dining room packed to gills.
Drive in was jammed with cars.

This is going to be a good quarter for Chick-Fil-A, maybe a good year.

We made a lunch stop at our local Chik-Filet on Wed and they were PACKED full. Family member went Thurs and said parking lot and restaurant was full.
I didn’t see any unwashed, leftist freaks anywhere inside or out.
But this is GA; leftist whacks/dems are out-numbered.

It’s worse than that. The CEO of Chick-Fil-Hate never even mentioned “gay marriage”.

...who took the pick of Weiner's weiner.

Could well have been Rahm the ballerina.

This "non-issue" has all the appearance of a coordinated national effort by Obama cronies to create another noisy distraction from REAL issues such as Obama's rotten job performance and "off-teleprompter" brain dump ("You didn't build that").

Obama crony Duval Patrick reigns over MA. Useful Idiot Boston, MA Mayor Tom Menino (D) starts the anti-Chick-Fil-A hype and babbles incessantly about it in front of any camera in his vicinity. Rahm joins the game. The gays begin to scream, and naturally the media is promoting the contrived spectacle from coast to coast.

Has the miasma of collusion.

Also heard that Obama and Liz Warren (MA limousine liberal Faux-A-Hontas who is trying to take back Scott Brown's seat for the democrats) shared the same speech advisor who provided the "you didn't build that" meme.

From the article:

“But there’s one guy whose values Chicago’s first Jewish mayor wouldn’t dare challenge: noted anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Farrakhan loudly condemns gay marriage, but Emanuel needs him. The mayor has lost control of the streets, his police force is vastly undermanned and the street gang wars of Chicago have claimed more American lives than Afghanistan.

Emanuel is desperate. He wants Farrakhan’s army with the bow ties out on the South and West sides to settle things down.”

The only thing that Rahmbo has advanced during his reign as Mayor of Chicago is the murder rate.

Twingle toes should be very proud. He can congratulate himself by watching the the current not-Chicago olympics which preceed future not-Chicago olympics.

When our first Chik-Fil-A opened a few years ago the drive thru was impossible. It still is, people LOVE this place!

“The only thing that Rahmbo has advanced during his reign as Mayor of Chicago is the murder rate.”

Which may not be an accident, since Obama needs an emotional reason to push gun control.

Liberals are afraid of a chicken sandwich, but embrace Louis Farrakhan, a bigot and known anti Semite.

From the testimonials on this thread,there are two reasons I probably won’t be going to Chic Fil A, especially on Wed. Aug 1st. The place is super crowded but that’s reason number 2. Reason number 1 is the fact that I hate chicken, don’t even want to smell the vile stuff cooking. I wish them well though and good luck to all you folks who plan on going on Wed.

Maybe I can talk my wife and kids into going and bring me back a shake.

I saw Rahmbo on the news last night and i was shocked
He looks like a man who is underging chemo- losing his hair, face deeply lined

He looks like a sick man

any news about anything going on with Rahmbo?
Just a bad hair day?
