Tick off a liberal: Take a Boy Scout to Chick-fil-A
WorldNetDaily ^ | Matt Barber

Posted on 07/29/2012 1:55:29 PM PDT by jimluke01

Forget about Bert and Ernie. I always thought Kermit the Frog was a little “light in the flippers,” if you know what I mean. Miss Piggy? Probably just cover (wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more). And how about that perennial bachelor, Fozzie Bear? Wocka Wocka, indeed.

Or not.

I don’t know.

Still, a recent move by The Jim Henson Company makes you wonder. In a distinctly knee-jerk, anti-family development, the Muppet mogul has severed promotional ties with Chick-fil-A – the booming fast-food chain and American Cinderella story. The multi-billion dollar company has stirred the ire of left-wing extremists in recent days.

Their crime? Failure to obey the nauseating, mind-numbing dictates of political correctness.

Dan Cathy – a devout Christian and CEO of the biblically based eatery – recently made a few innocuous public comments in support of legitimate marriage – sentiments the vast majority of morals-minded Americans happen to agree with. (I sent an email to Chick-fil-A corporate suggesting that, in reprisal, they add frog legs and ham hock to the menu. No reply thus far.)

“We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit,” said Cathy. “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 know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

Or, at least we used to live in that country. No more. Not if we let the godless left have its way.

The Jim Henson Company lies. CFA terminated the deal, not them, at least according to their FB page. I would believe CFA over the Jim Henson Company.

So here’s my proposal: Don’t let a bunch of uber-obnoxious, loud-mouthed liberal pansies intimidate you. They’re nothing but a wet paper tiger. On Wednesday, Aug. 1, have your kids wear their Boy Scout uniforms to Chick-fil-A. Scoutmasters, bring ‘em all.

Scout Pop Corn sales season is just getting started so while Scouts are at Chick-fil-A buy, Scout pop corn too.

That should really give the Libs a eart attack.

(sarc) This once again demonstrates the hypocrisy of liberals. The Jim Henson company now won't do business with Chick-Fil-A when they are co-conspirators in promoting some of the most heinous stereotypes, with the producers of Sesame Street. On that show these two entities have made fun of the homeless (Oscar the Grouch), eating disorders (Cookie Monster), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (the Count) and abusive same sex relationships (poor Ernie).

Only now do the Muppets take offense after decades of much worse behavior. (/sarc)

Stop me if you'd hear this... Obama, a gay and a undocumented Latino walk into a Chick-fil-A--

"What do you two want?" asks Obama. "Marriage in a church," says the gay. "Citizenship," says the Latino. "Okay, done," replies Obama... "Now, you two get the check!"

My wife REALLY pissed off some lefties in Central Austin when she walked into a Chick-fil-A wearing a NRA hat and A Sarah Palin t shirt.

The lefties squirmed like a bunch of vampires being doused with holy water,

Wish we had a Chick-Fil-A around here. Closest one is probably 3 hrs. away. I will make it a point to go there next time I’m in the city and not just to tick off a liberal which I highly enjoy. Heck I don’t even have to do anything other than exist to tick off a liberal and that tickles me a bit.

Wow...take a Boy Scout to Chick-A-Fill. Do you know just what that would represent? It would be like showing Dracula the cross. If you did that on August 3, the people doing the kiss-in would totally FREAK OUT, for they would have to look at young, fresh, meat - that they simply will never have access to.

While you are at it, why not send an anonymous catered Chick-fil-A lunch for, say, at least six to the Mayors of New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco.

I read (sorry, can't find link) that CFA dumped Henson on a Thursday and the next day Henson announced they were dumping CFA. Sounds like a little creative CYA to me.

Better yet, take them to an Appleseed and get CFA on the way home. A twofer! See my tag.

I never thought of the Jim Henson Company as being anti-family - but it seems that’s exactly what they are... and anti-Christian and anti-orthodox Jewish...

Many years ago, some of the Burger Chef chain, if not all, used to give Boy Scouts a coupon for a free Burger Shef hamburger when they were promoted in rank.

Maybe a fund could be set up to do the same thing today for Chick-fil-A, in the 36 states where it is available.

The same program could be used for other promotion gifts for Scouts, from corporations that also have moral character.

I see FReeper after FReeper saying a CFA is 3hrs or whatever away. Where do you people live, in the boonies or something?

There are 3 CFA’s within 2 miles of me.

Generally anywhere North of the Mason-Dixon, the number of Chick-fil-As drops off considerably, with a few exceptions.

http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Press/Map

8 states have none. 10 states and D.C. only have 1 or 2.

Then again, Texas has 251, Georgia has 191, Florida has 155, and North Carolina has 143. So it’s either feast or famine for many people.

But in that with taste testing, they beat out McDonalds, KFC and Burger King, they’re likely here to stay.

However, fate can intervene. Burger Chef used to be the #2 chain behind McDonalds, but then they were bought out by General Mills, which didn’t know how to do fast food, and then sold at a discount to Hardees and Carl’s Jr., which killed Burger Chef dead.

Can I suggest donating CFA gift cards/certificates to your local Scout troop; that way, a whole passel of scouts will show up at once...
