Skip to comments.NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn asks NYU to evict Chick-fil-A
Posted on 08/01/2012 11:49:47 AM PDT by moonshot925
A powerful New York politician claims she was just speaking as a private citizen when she tried to run Chick-fil-A out of town, but she used her official letterhead and even invoked her position as City Council speaker to apply pressure on the embattled chicken chain.
New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who has mayoral aspirations, sent a letter to New York University president John Sexton on Saturday asking the school to immediately end their contract with the fast food restaurant. The Atlanta-based company's sole New York City outlet is in the school's food court.
"I write as the Speaker of the NYC Council, and on behalf of my family. NYC is a place where we celebrate diversity. We do not believe in denigrating others. We revel in the diversity of all our citizens and their families, the letter begins.
"Let me be clear -- I do not want establishments in my city that hold such discriminatory views," Quinn, an open lesbian who recently married her longtime partner, also wrote in the letter. "We are a city that believes our diversity is our greatest strength and we will fight anything and anyone that runs counter to that."

Yeah, I had read this a few days ago. Now she’s going to have to do some back-pedaling; good luck to her on that.
“We revel in the diversity of all our citizens and their families,”
How do you “revel in diversity”? What a pantload of nonsense.
I wonder how many Muslim owned establishments there are in NYC whose owners support Sharia Law which is the antithesis of tolerance and diversity. How about running all of them out of NYC as well?
The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.
...and those guilty of such thought-crimes should be severely dealt with! How dare they cling to religious beliefs which contradict the new Utopia!
1930’s, Jewish-owned businesses willfully destroyed by the German government
2012, Christian-owned businesses willfully destroyed by city governments.
Is there any difference?
I wonder what the turnout was at the university outlets On Chick-Fil-A Day. Any reports?
Shall we call her Chick-Full-Of?
I think most of these loud mouth liberals could care less about Chick-fil-A or any of this stuff they claim to be “concerned” about......they just want to get their name in the press and or money in the bank account.......
Everybody wants their 15 minutes of fame.
How do you think the N.Y. Times stays in business? Bigoted fools like Quinn are its subscribers.
...meanwhile in Georgia, I had to wait in line for over an hour to get my chicken sammiches at Chick-fil-A. Not complaining. It warmed my heart to see the turnout.
“How do you revel in diversity? What a pantload of
She “revels in the diversity” of the citizens who think exactly as she demands, the fascist pig.
Im in SE TN, a <80% Republican county...
2 hours ago (1 PM EST) a friend texted me that here was security at our local Chicks (not normal)
and the lines were way around the building both to get inside and for the drive through...
she said they were giving up and would try later...
She said “Praise the Lord!”
Praise the LORD indeed...
Im going this evening...
Our church is meeting there but I dont knbow how its going to work out...
I want to take a stand for God and Righteousness and country and be part of history for resistance in our country...
If this does not send a message...
Yes. There will be no one to rescue us.
We need to stop referring to the neo-Nazis in Obama's America as "liberals." In this context, the use of the term is almost as much of an oxymoron as "same sex marriage."
Does anyone doubt that these fanatics would launch a "brownshirt" movement, like that of Hitler's militant homosexual ally Ernst Rohm, if they thought they could get away with it? Is there any difference in the mindset?
To understand what is involved in any ideological advocacy, one needs to look at the full context. This is not about humane or compassionate treatment of those with a problem. It is entirely about the suppression of any dissent in an effort to force a variety of monolithic, totalitarian uniformity of thought, on all of us.
Unless we rally against the compulsion driven fanatics, now in perpetual attack mode on our heritage, Chick-fil-A may well become the target in an American Crystal Night. The same pathology is involved in this.
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, mam.
Someone should tell Christine Quinn to go sh!t in her burka.
Pasadena, TX - Spencer Dr. had a full parking lot with overflow into adjacent parking lots and people jaywalking across the center medians from Walmart.
Also, consider, Compulsion For Uniformity. Those now trying to destroy a legitimate business for daring to reflect traditional mainstream American values, are cut from the same psychological cloth as those who participated in Crystal Night in Socialist Germany. It is the same hate driven compulsion--just a different immediate scape goat.
Screw you citizens, I don't care what you think. Only my option counts.
Christine darlin’! Keep pushing baby cakes and it’s going to get real ugly for you.
We need to find a name for this showdown against Christian-owned businesses. This is the beginning of bullying tactics which will eventually culminate in no Christians being allowed to do business in our country.
WE MUST STOP THIS NOW!!!
Liberalism = Bashing Faithful Christians
I do not see how Obama and his partisans will win this battle provided we do our part in making sure everyone is aware of this anti-Christian Democratic party.
I think that those who want CFA gone are finding out that there are such things as contracts, and upsetting fruits and their shower buddies are no legal reason to void them.
The difference between liberals and conservatives:
Liberals will demand special treatment when they attend an event, and only attend if it benefits themselves. If the food's not free, or there are no cameras, no reporters, or they're not getting paid, they don't bother.
Conservatives will attend an event even if it means they have to 'wait in line' and they will do so politely and with good humor, and proudly pay to support a worthy cause.
McDonalds wishes they could get half as 'embattled'.
“Let me be clear — I do not want establishments in my city that hold such discriminatory views,” Quinn, an open lesbian
And there you have it. A one percenter trying to run all of our lives!
1. Chick-Fil-A unlike you madam does not discriminate. The founder has a personal view point which in America he is entitled to!
2. Your actions are discriminatory. You are obviously part of the problem
It being that she has PUBLICLY declared herself a LESBIAN, I'm feel safe in saying that she is well-practiced at back-pedaling.
Chances are 99 in 100 that NYU will capitulate to the mad lesbian's demand by the time the president of the university comes back from his summer vacation.
As mayoress, this witch Quinn would be even worse than Bloomberg for government meddling into the private sector.
As I stood in line at our local CFA today, I could not help thinking how everyone was smiling, and polite, and courteous. Had this been a bunch of Liberals, there would have been riots, looting, fighting, trash everywhere, and the cops would have been arresting people instead of directing traffic.
Ah..... I think the phrase should be.... "frolics in stupidity."
so then i guess she does not support diversity after all...
"It is NOT... your city."
So I want Christine Quinn to explain to us why she has not targeted muslim-owned businesses. Islam does not support gay marriage and in some muslim countries gays are put to death.
Let’s hear Christine tell us why it’s ok for the Muslims to honor their beliefs and everyone else has to follow HER directive.
Despite her claims not to be using govt pressure, NYU has a vote coming before theCouncil on major expansion and land acquisition. This coming from the President of the City Council can only be seen as a threat to deny NYU’s applications unless they sever their relationship with CF A. Fascist thuggery.
“How do you revel in diversity?”
I’m picturing a large pile of bodies.
Great. Now I need mind bleach.
She is being groomed to be the next Mayor of NYC. That is how Bloomers got his 3rd term. Don’t think it’s going to go over to well. There are still a LOT of Christians in NYC suburbs that can blow her bubble out of the water.
Love this, thank you!!!
The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.
I’m afraid that any Chick-Fil-A franchisee who is counting on the cooperation of a university to sustain them had better find another business model. The campus nazis are goin’ scorched earth on this one.
"I write as the Speaker of the NYC Council..."
Can't be both, my dear...
"We are a city that believes our diversity....
Except for diversity of opinion, apparently, an opinion that President Obama held until a couple weeks ago. He started this, by "metamorphosing" on gay marriage, he in effect gave permission to the pro-gay faction within the party to unleash the dogs of war.
This is a war we'll win. We have the numbers.
Is that the same as the Night of Broken Glass? Just wondering.
I work in decent proximity to this CFA in NYC. I will be heading there after work. It may be closed for the summer. Not sure. I want a chicken sandwich after reading about them all day! Will report back.
Back before Chic fil A, when I'd heard that this open Lesbo wanted to be Mayor a chill went down my spine as i considered the dangerous possibilities that this generally morally corrupt person might bring into being. Guess we all got a glimpse of this kind of mind in action well ahead of time.
My God, NYU practically owns most of the Village! I’m sick of seeing it swallowing up precious space in this city. As someone who takes evening classes at NYU on occasion (never knew there was a Chick-Fil-A on campus), I’m amazed at its immense wealth and vast empty spaces. The halls are practically lined with marble!
And yes, Chick-Fil-A will be out on its ass in a New York Minute (as non-New Yorkers always say). Sad.
Last lines from “A Knight’s Tale” sum her up:
Wat: You have been weighed.
Roland: You have been measured.
Kate: And you have absolutely...
Chaucer: Been found wanting.
William: Welcome to New World. God save you, if it is right that he should do so.
I hope the voters remember this bucket of puke when it comes time to vote.
