Skip to comments.NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn asks NYU to evict Chick-fil-A

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.

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.
