Sarah Palin Tweets Her Support for Chick-Fil-A
The Blaze ^ | July 28, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 07/28/2012 2:38:59 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Sarah Palin has officially shown her support for Chick-fil-A, as the fast food chain faces continuing backlash over same-sex marriage.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee on Friday posted a photo on her Twitter page of herself and husband Todd standing at a counter with the caption, “Stopped by Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands to support a great business.”

According to Politico, Palin had announced earlier in the day she planned to pay a visit to the eatery at a rally for Texas Republican Senate candidate Ted Cruz.

I’ve never even seen or eaten at a Chik-Fil-A and don’t intend to do so - ever. I don’t understand the fuss.

It's a privately held chain of restaurants, very well run, clean, nice cleancut kids working there. The CEO spoke out in favor of traditional marriage and the firestorm of gay lobby criticism began, including a boycott, attempts to have them removed from university food courts and threats by several large city mayors including Boston and Rahm Emmanuel in Chicago, to bar them from opening in their cities.

The “fuss” is countering this with a “buycott,” because people are sick of being dictated to by a tiny minority of the population. Gays are going to stage a “kiss-in” now, in their restaurants.

All because the son of the founder, a Christian, spoke in favor of traditional marriage.

That's what all the fuss is about.

I eat there at least 4 times a week. Healthy food if you get the sandwich grilled, hot looking office ladies spend their lunch break there, and free fast WiFi!!!

And Mitt Romney is still cowering in the corner afraid to open his mouth about this issue because he is the “Father of Gay Marriage” since he was the first person to implement it in MA.

Wow.

Would you mind elaborating on your reasons why you will never eat at a Chick-fil-A?

Should we assume you are a gay activist?

When I first ate there about a year ago, I felt a sense of relief and comfort. The employees were polite, cheerful and clean-cut. The food was remarkable - for fast food. It’s a darn shame voicing one’s support for traditional marriage, instead of perversion, results on this. Disagreement is not hate, you know.

I’ve never even seen..”

My mom used to remind me when I was growing up that there were a lot of things I’d never seen, some I probably never would and some things I would see and wouldn’t believe it with my own eyes if I did.

Kudos to Sarah Palin (and husband Todd) for very publicly supporting the unjustifiably embattled Chick-fil-A chain. The haters can spew all the crap they want at her but Sarah Palin still stands tall and embodies the very heart of conservatism.

Outrageous, isn’t it? Not one word from the presumptive nominee.

If someone asks him about it on camera, just watch the panicked stammering that will follow.

I don't eat fast food much, but my experience has been that the employees at Chick-fil-A are by far the most courteous and competent.

"I don’t understand the fuss."

It's a Christian business, closed on Sundays, and they even have Bible verses on the wall in the restrooms. The restaurants are exceptionally clean. The employees are several cuts above the typical fast-food worker; they're pleasant, well-spoken, and very courteous, and they act as if they actually want to be there.

And now they are being attacked from all sides because they don't support sodomites engaging in perversion and calling it marriage. Pretty easy to understand, really.

You must have SOME reason for never intending to go near a Chic-fil-A. Is it because you’re in favor of gay marriage? Fess up. You’re either in favor of gay marriage or you’re not.

It's the latest public battle being fought between the forces of Good and evil.

This is going to be won by Good, not all are.

I don't know you, or your lifestyle, and you may be right, it won't affect you. It will have an effect on the falls elections though, I predict.

Actually it affects you a great deal, because it has nothing to do with chicken. Rather, it represents a watershed moment in American history where the Left's Nazi-style gang attacks using political power against free speech has been brought up short. If this hadn't happened, history indicates there would come a day where your refusal to care would be deemed as aggression against the state, and you would be forcibly relocated to a concentration camp, where they don't serve elk. Instead however, you can continue to post like a belligerant ass, and stuff your face with elk, in the knowledge that millions of other Americans are dealing with the issues that keep your mouth-breathing safe for the future.

Have a nice day.

You know...It’s a Grand Ol’ FR Tradition - jump a thread with an “I never...” or “I am not interested” or the classic “Who cares?”

It’s a cry for attention and one person on the thread is getting his fifteen minutes of FReeper Fame.

My daughter and I ate there last night. Not very busy but we were there around 7. After we finished, we were sitting at the table and one of the employees, a young guy, came by and asked if he could take our tray for us. Small gesture but a sign of how courteous the employees are. I love CFA and will be there August 1.

And CFA is very picky about their franchisees. You can get a franchise for $5,000 but very few are chosen.

Is it really that low? I've never heard of a fast food franchise that you can get into for much less than $1 million (though that does include non-fee expenses).

Got $5000 laying around? Then you can forget the burgers and throw your money down on a license to operate a Chick-Fil-A. But get in line. Chick-Fil-A only gives about 75 of the 10,000 applicants per year the right to operate a franchise, and along with this right comes strict stipulations.

I only know this because my daughter did reports on CFA when she was studying for her MBA.

I think we should start a ‘Keep the Change’ program. Next time you eat there tell the cashier to keep the change. I trust the company to do something good with the extra money. Then the company can tell the news media of the good work they are doing with their customers’ change which was donated.
