Question:Will The "Chik-Fil-A Madness" Continue For Weeks To Come?

Posted on 08/01/2012 7:26:55 PM PDT by Reality_News

Why end the celebration on Wednesday? Lets just keep it going right thru the election. Think of the long Chick-Fil-A Lines as a practice run for when us patriots prepare for "The War On Obama" on November 6th. How we can win this election will be very simple! Conservatives become "The Red Army" and we will storm our precincts in record numbers! Just like what happened today. THE REDCOATS ARE COMING !!!

Well, I happily waited in line for over an hour to get a sandwich today. I don’t know that I can do that three times a day until November.

The closest Chick-fil-A to where I live is over 200 miles away. However, I’m going to be in the Phoenix area next week for 4 days. I intend to eat at least one meal there each day. (They have one nearby) The grandkids love Chick-fil-A so it isn’t going to be a problem.

One can only hope. Unfortunately standing in line to vote for Romney is nowhere near as motivating as standing in line to support Biblical values, the traditional family, and the first amendment

Good day but much more to be done. Decent people must never let those lowlife left wing democrat thugs win. Sure wish Cathy would sue those hypocritical Democrat office holders for violating his civil rights. He does not need the aggravation but he would be protecting vulnerable people who are subject to these creeps.

Three and a half hours in line today, worth every minute.

When I first visited the Orland Park, IL location shortly after it opened, I wasn't impressed. Today I was.

The girl who took our order had been there since 9am this morning. She took my order at 8pm, 11 hours later. She, along with everyone else working there were still smiling, cheerful, and they seemed to genuinely appreciate all the attention and business they were getting today.

I'll definitely go back. Met alot of very nice people, and if the crowd in Orland Park, IL was any indication, the upcoming election was on EVERYONE's mind that I spoke to.

Here's a picture from today, it's a panoramic shot of the line that snaked all over the parking lot. Traffic backup was almost a mile long, police directing traffic everywhere.

Chicken is chock-full of important vitamins and an important source of protein. Thus, it could not be a bad thing to consume much chicken between now and the November elections.

Free speech is much more important than having to worry that someone might be offended.
How can we have an honest discussion if we can't speak our minds?

If you disagree with what I say, by all means say so, but don't try to silence me.

Blog report with photos on the Chick-Fil-A rush in Chicago

"The line at 12:10pm extended down the city block from the entrance, full
of Chicagoans who, it would seem, don’t share Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s
definition of “Chicago Values.”

"Republican candidate for Illinois State Representative Kimberly Small,
along with a friend who took up a collection at his office, bought bags of
the chicken sandwiches to deliver to an area homeless shelter."

"The woman next to me in line brought her elderly mother, an immigrant,
to Chick-fil-A after she learned of the Mayor’s antics. She emailed everyone
from her church, upset that Christians were being discriminated against.
“I told everyone I know,” she said."

"In the Chicago suburban location in Schaumburg, IL, a line extended out the doors as well:"

11/6/12 - Eat More Chicken!

Clear Lake Shores, Texas: Line out the door and drive thru line double wrapped around the store - hour wait to get dinner. Still packed after 9:00.

Yahoo News says “thousands” went to Chick-Fil-A today. Funny - I’m pretty sure there were “thousands” today at just this one location.

Rahm built this!

Unfortunately, a good number of evangelical Christians do not vote. They see themselves as marking time here on earth, and whatever is going on down here is God’s will. I think the ‘Pubs need to recruit some fresh-faced 18-24 year old kids to ask customers to register and to vote.

They must have felt assured that this would happen and they obviously ordered a lot of chicken. I haven’t heard one report of them running out.

Maybe I’ll bring my Tea Party flag and see if any Obamabots try to tread on me. I’ll make sure the press is there, and I’ll hand them a chicken breakfast biscuit to warm’em over.

I (strongly) disagree.

Completely in fact.

Nobody has stood their ground except Chik-Fil-A. They’re the rallying point.

By the time this (starts) wearing down, there will be a new villain.

Meanwhile, Chik-Fil-A will have inherited a whole new bunch of regulars.

Where was the restaurant?

Orland Park, IL. Orland Park is about 20'ish miles Southwest of Chicago.

Take that, Rahm! As I was told by numerous people, the line has been like that all day.

Never happen, the South alone will keep them in business just like we have for years. Chick-fli-a is a staple in the South no one ever says no I don't want a chick-fli-a, we have been eating there form the beginning at The Dwarf Grill, in Hapeville, Georgia.

What no one tells is that this was across the street from the Ford Plant it was working men food and took off from there. We have chick-fli-a about once a week. Good food or something is wrong with YOU!

1) What did you order?

Actually, I went in for one sandwich, but the wait was so long, I got two. Plus an iced tea. The best tea in fast food.

2) How much was it?

$8.00 or so. I just let them swipe my card.

3) How was it?

Good as usual. I generally go there once or twice a month.

4) What’s your fav fast-food place?

I'm a Wendy's baconator fan. Five Guys when I'm feeling rich.

Crowd outside Chick-fil-A in Corpus Christi, Texas.

The local news said all locations of Chick-fil-a estimated that they did double the business today!

You did a good think, Rev Huck!

The queers and MSM picked this fight and it will stay a “hot” fight for as long as they want to play the “gay intolerance” card. The more you push it, the worse it’s going to be for all these hustlers and their Donkey (and RINO) sympathizers.

It's the Orland Park, IL location. I ate there last week. Geographically, the Orland Park Chick-Fil-A might be the one closest to Obama's home turf, as it's the only Chick-Fil-A in southern Cook County where Obama hails from. (there's also a Chick-Fil-A within Chicago city limits, but it's in the northern loop downtown, not the south side)

I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen one. I only knew they existed from their “eat more chicken” commercials and the fact they have a college bowl game named after them.

Orland Park is in the very South West corner of Cook County. Obama's neighborhood is just south of Downtown Chicago.

Geographically speaking, the two are quite a distance apart. The only thing they have in common is being in the same county.

I live 5 minutes from the Orland Park Chik fil A, and I work a stones throw from Obama's house, so I know of what I speak.

Equating Orland Park with the neighborhood Obama lives in, is quite insulting, just FYI.
