Skip to comments.ACLU lawyer wants Chick-fil-A supporters to gorge on transfats

If you support Chick-fil-A in the face of left-wing nutcase attacks over the restaurant chains support of traditional marriage, ACLU of Massachusetts Executive Director Carol Rose has some advice:
Did you see that politicians Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee are now trying to rally all homophobes to eat at Chick-fil-A? Im thrilled. In fact, I encourage all bigots to load up on transfats and carbohydrates. Go ahead eat your heart out on the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit breakfast! Mmmm.
Presumably, her idea is to trigger heart attacks.
In her July 27 ACLU blog post entitled Menino v. Chick-fil-A, Ms. Rose revealed Boston Mayor Thomas Meninos peculiar understanding of the word freedom in his rant to Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy. There is no place for discrimination on Bostons Freedom Trial and no place for your company alongside it, Menino declared.
So far, Mr. Cathy, who in an interview published July 16 in The Baptist Press defended marriage and the biblical family, has earned scathing threats from liberal officials in Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago, and the list grows. In San Francisco, Mayor Edwin M. Lee tweeted: Closest #ChickFilA to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer.
Down the coast in Orange County, protesters on Thursday mobbed the grand opening of a Chick-fil-A store in Laguna Hills, forcing the cancellation of a camp-out for free meal tickets. One marcher dressed as Jesus Christ held a sign saying No H8. Another sign said, God Hates Hate. One woman in a chicken suit had a placard proclaiming, Corporate profits should not fund hate groups.
Not to be outdone, on Friday in Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent Gray joined the mob by sending a tweet calling Chick-fil-A hatechicken.
But, back to the ACLU and its supposed protection of our First Amendment rights. Ms. Rose, whose Chick-fil-A piece first ran on July 26 on The Boston Globes On Liberty blog, described the citys imbroglio as merely a war of words, and noted that a Chicago aldermans threat to deny a building permit to Chick-fil-A might give Mr. Cathy a pretty strong claim under the First Amendment that he is a victim of viewpoint discrimination by a government official. Well, bully for that!
Finally, her dietary advice is eerily reminiscent of USA Today columnist and Pacifica Radio talk show host Julianne Malveauxs remark on PBS in 1994 that she wished newly confirmed conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas would fall victim to unhealthy food. Malveaux said:
You know, I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease.
This bizarre comment earned Ms. Malveaux the Media Research Centers coveted Im a Compassionate Liberal But I Wish You Were All Dead Award. Someone ought to nominate Ms. Rose for the honor.
August 1 is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, when regular people who support marriage, dislike attacks on free speech, or just want to tweak bullies while having a delicious and nutritious chicken sandwich will be showing up en masse at one of the chains more than 1,600 restaurants.
This is a game of chicken with constitutional consequences.
“...Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee are now trying to rally all homophobes to eat at Chick-fil-A....”
Homophobe? Here is how I define it:
HOMOPHOBE - “A person with a perfectly natural fear of sexual behavior that is patently unnatural.”
If Rose was a decent lawyer, she’d have a real job and be raking in some big bucks. Just the fact that the aCLU is the best she can do tells me that she must be a real braindead ditz. Nobody goes through law school to work for the aCLU. The aCLU is where the loser lawyers go.
Ms. Rose iz not nize..
Such an ugly and hateful attitude reveals what has always been just underneath the surface with politically correct people.
I guess this hate filled idiot never heard of the grilled chicken salad.
Screw em, I hope she chokes on a strap on ***do!
The persecution of Christians has begun in earnest in the US.
This hoopla is not over chicken.
It’s really sad that the ACLU hates free speech. Let them choke on their hate.
This is open persecution based on religious belief, something I thought we abandoned May 7, 1945.
I wonder how soon outright attacks on Chic-fil-A stores will begin?
I agree. Bring as much business there as you can. Give them millions of dollars more to donate to pro-marraige. We can help them with their noble donations if we, as a country, stand together against the pro-perv radicals.
I’ll take transfats over anal sex any day of the week. Gays are deviates no matter how hard the immoral Libs try to force it on decent people.
The deviates and their supporters in congress are why NOTHING gets done in congress. It’s “always” their way or no way!
Correct. This is the men of Sodom threatening Lot.

I went to a Chick-fil-A today for the very first time - got a chicken bisquit and it was really good - I was shocked....needless to say I told the cashier that I would be returning August 1 for lunch.....she fist bumped me and said “Roll Tide”......I told my Dad that in the future when I go over to do some household chores for him instead of stopping at Hardee’s to get him a sausage bisquit he would be getting a Chick-fil-A chicken bisquit in the future...
I never heard of them before. I think a lot of people have been introduced to a great business because of this. Their food is really good! They can come closer to our town any day!
“Homophobe” is one of the worst perversions of the language to push an ideology I’ve ever seen. A phobia requires fear. Almost all people labeled “homophobe” have no fear of homosexuals whatsoever. What they have is a natural aversion to them, a religious objection to them, or even just a disagreement with the activism. You will still be labeled a homophobe if you personally don’t have a problem with them, but don’t actively support them and think they are a necessary part of society.
Yet, of course, the press promotes the use of this word whenever anybody has any disagreement with the actions of homosexuals.
The irony here is that once again the libtard is wrong, espousing fact-free opinion. Go to their website, check the menu. The bacon egg and cheese biscuit had zero Trans fats. Hey ACLU, next time you want to look bigoted, check your facts so you don’t look stupid too.
