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!
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!
Poor Shep, he and his boyfriend must have gotten into a fight, maybe that’s why he’s so grouchy. Why do gays always have that pissed off look on their face..always so damn angry
Same thing at Chick-Fil-A in Clemson SC. Restuarant packed and line of cars on highway to get in. Very similar to photos here.
I don’t have CFA near me, so I called up one in Jersey and with my Visa ordered $50 of assorted sandwiches delivered to a nearby senior center. The center sent a car to pick it up.
I think you’ll see just that...
we can’t vote today, but we’re doing the best we can to show that we’ve had it with the left.
How long before the media does some sort of undercover story about how bad the chickens are treated that sell to CFA? It’ll be that or something similar to discredit them. Bet on it.
Actually, yeah. CNN has a couple of stories, ABCnews.com has a story, of course FOX news has at least one. I think we shocked them. I'm heading over that way in a half hour, and will get some chikin if I don't have a huge line ahead of me. If I do have a large line, I'll take a picture or two and post it on the other thread.
“Why do gays always have that pissed off look on their face..always so damn angry”
Cruder folks than I might make the comment that “they look like they have a corn cob up....”

He looks like he is dying of AIDS but maybe it is some other disease.
My brother and I ran by for lunch, but could go because the line was so huge. It’s always busy, but they were just putting up barricades in one of the turn lanes and about 4 cops were directing traffic around the one we went by. We’re going to try again for dinner - maybe go late (hopefully they still have food).
Heck yes! I had breakfast and lunch at CFA today and they were swamped.
ME too! And, the pictures could have been taken at my local CFA - same crowds and lines. Great day to be a conservative (and to own a CFA franchise. I hope every one of them makes a million dollars or two today!
Los Colinas is part of Irving, btw.... my town!
Can I get a Duh?
He’s right, in a way...
He’s celebrating National Intolerance of Christian Values Day.
WOW !!!!! That is just the best!!!!
