The prev’s supposed ‘retaliation’ is this Friday, prevs around the nation are supposed to show up at Chick-Fil-A’s and conduct same sex kissing.

Conservative reaction: Support a thriving business.

Liberal reaction: Destroy whatever conservatives cherish.

Queue opinion pages stating how this is just a conservative temper tantrum and that this moment of support will surely fail as the larger wave of rejection buries the chain...

Just left our local CFA. We were given the honor of being the last in line. They wanted to ensure that there was going to be enough food and that they would close by 10. After an hour in line we were informed that they were out of food. The manager could not believe the response. Everyone that didn’t get served all commented that they were coming back tomorrow.

There’s no shortage of local news stories out there

Yeah. We had local coverage...

The San Fransisco Fox affiliate KTVU showed a crowded Dallas TX CfA, then had live coverage from the “local” Fairfield store.

The audio story was that the Fairfield store had to close early despite ordering extra supplies because they simply ran out of food!

The visual was a few shots of the crowded store earlier in the day, and 90% of the time live in a near empty store with an as-an-aside mention that they were closing as soon as these few customers were done.

Normally the store would be open another 5 hours.

Then they cut to the handful of protesters at the not yet open San Jose store.

No bias here, no sirie!

"And the day’s not over yet."

Chick-fil-A will likely have inventory problems into next week, trying to rebuild stock depleted by today's huge demand.

That's a problem every manager dreams about.

The Chik-Fil-A eaters are also active voters. Obama and the Dems and the leftist media has pissed off a lot of people.

It wasn’t looking good for the Dems and now it looks even worse.

I went to one on the western suburbs of STL this evening. At 8PM the line was almost out the door. The drive-up line snaked around the parking lot, spilled out on to the street and wrapped part way around the building.

Going inside, a manager greeted everyone at the door, saying please excuse the slower service. It looked like they called in every crew member of all shifts. The kitchen was full of people. The counter crew was a bit frantic but did their job and in the end service time was within the range of normal.

I was pleasantly surprised that product quality was fine.

The mood of the crowd was happy and surprised neighbors greeted each other. The only difference when I left was the drive-up line was a bit shorter.

The freedom to speak your own mind is the most precious right we have in this country. Any pol who even hints that we must bend the law to punish people with unpopular opinions must be impeached.

In other news. In the UK, a person is put in police custody for tweeting something that was impolite and inconsiderate, but certainly not suggesting anything vile or violent.

see:

“Dorset Police said the 17-year-old boy was held at a guest house in the Weymouth area on suspicion of malicious communications and later bailed.”

You can go to the finest restaurants in the world and you would be hard pressed to get something as tasty as Chick-fil-a's deep fried chicken strips dipped in their house sauce for $4.00

Chick-fil-A, 8875 Tampa Avenue, Northridge, Los Angeles, CA, August 1st, 2012, 12:00 Noon. Line is all the way around building.

Net result is destruction. It's time patriots learn that being nice isn't going to achieve the ends they seek.

We had a lovely lunch there today. The place was packed, the people were polite, the crowds were happy. They had people out in the parking lot and street directing traffic. The CFA also handed out coupons for a free sandwich, so the manager obviously wants to keep any new customers coming back.

My local news did a story on the crowds, and had the obligatory “other side” with an interview with a gay activist. They mentioned that he had a project going for something or other.... didn’t care enough to listen..... but they did mention that he has managed to raise...... $700!!!!

Both Mr G and I laughed out loud.

Exactly right, at least in my case. I went to CFA for breakfast (had work to do, didn't want to wait in long lines), but not because I have any strong opinions about gay marriage. My purchase was entirely as an "up yours" to the hate-mongers who incessantly try to force their beliefs on us all.

Allow me to add that I am at a loss to think of a parallel spontaneous statement by the left. The scope of this protest must leave any leftist with half a brain stunned for what it indicates about November and what the country thinks of the left.

If you really want to spaz them out ask them this...

“If you and your ‘partner’ were not having sex, you’d be just considered good friends, no different from two people sharing a residence for financial reasons. So that being the case and the fact that your brand of sex cannot result in having children, can you please explain to me why it is that people should be granted special privileges, benefits and rights based solely on the type of sex they are having?”

This also works great to ask of reporters during interviews.

Or just carry a sigh that says “GAY PORN PHOTO SHOOT” and stand behind them with it ;)

The method of operation of the left results in normal people feeling ‘alone in the world’. The Media pushes 24/7 propaganda designed to dispirit you (the general sense) and make you feel isolated and afraid.

When an event like this happens eyes are opened. I have seen a number of posts with folks ‘shocked’ to see friends/neighbors there at CFA too.

The left overreached again. This was not supposed to happen yet. It was supposed to be closer to the election so that the ‘disruption’ could be better ‘leveraged’ and the right ‘demonized’ closer to poll day.

People have a 1 week political attention span at most. For some, less. But issues like this, once brought into the light last a looooong time. And now the libs blew it.

My gut says that Obama’s operatives are probably putting out the word to “back off” until after November....

Bloomberg’s decision not to particpate in the hate Chick Fil-A fest is probably the response the White House wants...for now.

The sodomites are getting too big for their britches. 10 years ago, even 5 years ago, gays would have been laughed out of existence if they tried to raise a fuss over a corporation that was anti-gay marriage. Everyone laughed at the very idea of gay marriage. Nowadays people are intimidated into not saying anything negative about it.

I doubt that. More like 50 times the business. Double would mean lines half way around the building every day.

It was a LOT more than double.
