MASSIVE LINES at Chick-fil-A on “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”
Gateway Pundit ^ | 8-1-2012 | Andrea Ryan

Today is “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

After intolerant and First Amendment-hating Chicago politicians blocked Chick-fil-A from building a restaurant, former Governor Mike Huckabee announced his support for the restaurant chain and its Constitutional right of free speech. He declared today Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Allen sent this picture from west county St. Louis.

Allen added: People are standing in line 100+ deep to go inside. The lines go out and around the building. Two lines of drive through cars are around the shopping center.

St. Louisans also came out in huge numbers to show their support for the First Amendment.
The lot was jam-packed…
(Mike took these photos in Chesterfield, Missouri.)

The line goes around the block.

The line of cars wraps all the way around to the main boulevard, where the line still continues.


The surrounding streets and parking lots are packed.


The restaurant is full and the line goes out the door.

Normally, with this crowd volume you would expect short tempers and bedlam. That’s not the case today at Chick-fil-A. While the surrounding restaurant chains are empty, the people in this line are happily making a statement, talking to each other with smiles on their faces. They’re patriots taking a stand against a gross violation of our First Amendment right. And they are doing it in 100 degree temperatures.

Any bets if this will make the MSM tonight?

If you have more photos please send them in!

More…
Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) bought Chick-fil-A for his office staff today.

Here’s a photo from Texas.

Ruth Wendelken sent this from Texas: This is at 11:15 at the Los Colinas Texas Chick-fil-a. Notice the line is three cars wide around the building. The line of foot traffic is huge. Notice the sign of 315 cars served at that time. Now in center line. Its a great day for Freedom of speech. Take that Boston, Chicago and San Francisco!

Heck yes! I had breakfast and lunch at CFA today and they were swamped. Never seen lines like that at a CFA before. Unreal.

This makes me proud to be a conservative.

I saw a big line in PA’s 7th Congressional district today, a known bellwether to both parties.

If Boston doesn’t want a Chick-Fil-A, we’ll take it!

Just put in Pierce County where people are a bit more... normal.

wow great post. The progressives, soros orgs, Rahm Emanuel are so out of touch. Probably holding strategy meetings after they just helped energize traditional Americans they are against.

It is amazing. These people are simple, hard-working, law-abiding family people. They aren’t Freepers or Tea Party members (from what I could tell). They are simply the middle class that I was thinking all but disappeared. And the fact that it all happened so quietly and with such strength was just amazing. Simple, good, traditional people are just so tired of it all.

Nice to see such a turn out.

This will not be covered well in the gay controlled media complex. For example (this happened): play a song called “Stupid Girls” when showing Sara and Todd Palin with their CFA bags.

As said above, a November turnout like this must have them (gay mafia, Democrats) quaking in their boots.

I went to Chick-fil-A kind of early, trying to get there before the crowd, just to find no place to park a couple of blocks around the restaurant, and the drive-through lanes going around the block. I remembered there's a small Chick-fil-A at the local mall, so I drove there. This is a mall that is dead at most times, except Christmas. I don't understand how it is still open. Today all the parking lots were full and the line of people went the whole length of the mall. I will try again this evening!

I wish Huckabee would get figures on number of people served today and made sure it made the news!

Shepard Smith just referred to today as National Intolerance Day on Fox just as they cut to break.

Yep. I went to the one in Cottleville, MO (also near St. Louis) about 11am and it was jammed - line out the door & down the sidewalk - drivethru all the way around, and yet they were doing great with service - they must have had 20 people behind the counter!

My wife went down to CFA in S. CA, to grab some chicken sandwiches, but they were so jammed, she gave up. She'll try again later.

Long ago we stopped eating at Mc-illegal, Jack in the Slop, and Burger Blap King because they all hire illegal aliens, and many of these slop joints are owned by A-rabs and foreigners.

No way we are going to aid and abet that.
