Allen West weighs in on Chick-Fil-A
BizPacReview.com ^ | July 27, 2012 | Michele Kirk

Posted on 07/27/2012 3:51:46 PM PDT by T.O.K.

Allen West weighed in on the national controversy over Chick-Fil-A and the fact that many on the left, including Rahm Emanuel are speaking out against the private company. Some are calling for bans on the restaurants due to recent views expressed by the company's president, who opposes gay marriage. City mayors, Hollywood stars, and even the ACLU have weighed in on the issue. West, in true form did not hold back an opinion. "I love some Chick-Fil-A. When I finish here I'm going to Chick-Fil-A," said West, but followed up with more sobering remarks:

Congressman West is so dead on when he speaks about an issue. He knows how to get right to the heart of the matter. He doesn't miss a beat when he calls out Rahm Emanuel!

If Romney wants a slam dunk victory this November he should choose wisely when it comes to his VP:

By Patrick Rizzo, NBC News

Updated at 5 p.m. ET: Chick-fil-A’s vice president of public relations, Don Perry, died suddenly early Friday, the company said, leaving the embattled restaurant chain without its chief spokesman amid a marketing crisis.

I think this bullying of Chick-fil-A has really touched a nerve in middle America, sick of the liberals forcing their cultural corruption on everyone.

Call it “The Chick-fil-A Counterrevolution”. When I went there today at 2:30, normally a slack time, the CFA I went to was full. All the tables had more than one person sitting at them. There were several families with young children. No protesters.

I asked one of the girls working the register if they were ready for August 1st, and she said that for a week, now, they had been busy from open to close. But they were expecting a flood of people.

I strongly suspect that August 1st is going to be overwhelming. It is an easy way for middle America to voice its displeasure, and should serve as fair warning to those trying to force their agendas on our country.

The pressure has really built up, and the first indicator is going to be chicken sandwiches.

amid a marketing crisis.

What marketing crises? These guys are American marketing hero's. They've never had so much free publicity and business. The country is 98% heterosexual, so what's the big deal? Homosexuals are only 2% (and that's only if you count those in prison who don't have a choice). They just make so much noise, people think they're more than 2%, but they're not.

Just say "no" to the homosexuals, and support the restaurant with your business. Join the party. Have a tasty chicken sandwich.

That’s because they are all over TV. My wife loves to watch those cooking shows and last night they had four “pink” chefs on one show, two of them were a “couple.”

They really don't. They do have money to buy politicians and lawyers, though.

If you want people to think there are more of you, make as much noise and trouble as you can. People will think you outnumber them by the thousands, when in reality there may only be 50 of you.

Simply do not tolerate them. There are no mind control laws. You have just as much a right to express yourself as anyone else. Use that right - or lose it!

I agree. I don't think West wants to be associated with Romney. Besides, can you imagine how brightly West would outshine him on the campaign trail?

We’ve bought a few things from HSN in the past, but of late they’ve added two or three prissy pink presenters, irks me to even watch them. I’ll do my buying elsewhere.

The media (by this mostly I mean the entertainment industry) has made it appear that the majority of people agree with them. Thus, many people, especially young people, do not want to see out of the mainstream. Other people simply don’t want to put up with the name calling and bullying that are sure to follow should they say anything other than the party line.

You need to understand that there is nothing about the sodomites that is innately defend-able; the Left just wants the most disgusting tool available to attack Christian values, and homosexuals fit the bill. This is purely a spiritual battle, and Leftists are animated by none other than Satan. His utter contempt for God and all things of God is immeasurable. And you can plainly see this virulent hatred in his servants.

Until we understand the supernatural nature of this conflict, and continue to think of it on a shallow worldly level, it will never make sense.

When my daughter was in college, the kids in groups all pretended to be homo tolerant. When they weren't in a group, the homo jokes were all over the place. In fact, some of the jokes she came home and told me about were really, really, disgusting. Believe me, they'd make the homos weep and gnash their teeth.

Pull the kids aside, and they'll tell you the truth. They think the homos are gross, too.

The same way the muslims do, except that instead of being threatened with shortening at the neck they threaten with boycotts and lawsuits.

Going to be really interesting to watch the media studiously ignore the massive increase in CFA’s business. Everything ‘m reading here tells me the place is going off the charts, and I know the MSM will try to will it into non-existence.

Hard to know unless they mention it. CFA is a private company, so they probably keep earnings confidential.

However in this case, it wouldn’t hurt to acknowledge all the folks standing up to support them.
