Black Americans Supporting Chick-Fil-A? [Significant Numbers in Florida!]
8/2/12 | SFF

Posted on 08/02/2012 2:13:46 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Just an observation, asking for opinions and other observations here. We went to a South Florida Chick-Fil-A, one that is in a "white" area, but still fairly diverse ethnically because of a nearby college...the town of Davie.

Saw a significant number of African American customers supporting Chick-Fil-A...I wonder if the rumors about Obamugabe's celebration of sodomy is *really* cutting into his "base".


TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: aar; blackvote; chick; chickfila; sodomy; tolerance; vanity
Opinions welcome. I did not engage in any conversation with them, but I did notice many of them were families...folks with young children.

I suspect most Black people will give 0 a pass on this, but if Romney can get just 10% of the Black vote, he wins in a landslide. Based on what I've seen, the Black guys I grew up with would actually get more offended being called "queers", "fags, etc. than the "N" word.

I noticed a lot in the pictures; good for them. They are Americans with a stake in the future of this country, and many I know are repulsed by “the lifestyle”.

They are not going to vote for Romney. So the key here is to DEPRESS their vote and make them so pissed off at Obama for something or other in advance of November now only a ltitle over THREE MONTHS AWAY. Either economy or social issues or whatever. This will keep droves of them home on Election Day, not liking either man. I can live with that, tactically speaking. The enemy will be doing everything, including demogoging, on the opposite side strategically to get them out, including paying people off. I say the critical battle here (unfortunately) with the African American community, God Bless them all, is that if they are going to support Obama to the tune of 90% then our ground game has to be to discourage them in the public arena by embarrassing them about Obama over something so they just dont give a rats ass about getting out and voting this time. Sad it has to be that way, but it takes decades to come off the mental plantation, and 2012 just ain’t going to be one of the years.

I noted the same thing. And nobody waits 50 minutes for a chicken sandwich unless they want to be there.

Black American man I met yesterday told me flat out, more and more Black Americans are NOT going to vote for a gay loving president! :)

Hearing what Rev. William Owens said yesterday was all I needed or wanted to hear.

Yesterday I went to a CFA in the Atlanta area. Half the customers were black. I saw a young black couple with two children. They were eating ice cream. Perhaps their budget was tight, but they wanted to come to CFA and show their support.

Here’s a video of Rev. William Owens. Rush mentioned him yesterday.

In North Carolina when the measure was beaten Blacks voted more against gay marriage than white.

It was like 80/20 in the Black Community

Blacks by a very wide margin are against gay marriage and the gay lifestyle in particular as are Hispanics.

These two groups view gay men as being “not men” and manliness is a very important part of their culture. The same is true with the Hispanics.

The very fact we are seeing Ministers come out publicly against Obama bodes ill for him. Blacks take their religious leaders very seriously and will follow their lead.

I’m in Pittsburgh & went to a suburban CFA yesterday....I had the same thoughts. Lots of black families there, leading me to wonder how many of these folks really do support Obama.

As another posted earlier, I too suspect many blacks will give O a pass on the gay rights stuff, but if I were Obama, I wouldn’t be counting my chickens quite yet.

In my East Tennessee city we have a relatively small black population. There were several black families in line and eating while I was there.

maybe Obama is, at long last, bringing together the races-to oppose him and his gang of thugs.

I loved seeing the pictures of families; moms, dads, grandparents and children, standing up for themselves and each other!

This was a clear message to the social engineers who think they are worthy of remaking humanity into their shallow and dark image. They are not as all powerful as they think they are.

I’m skeptical.

I’m thinking they’ll support CFA, biblical marriage, and Christianity, and still vote for 0 because “he looks like me”.

At the CFA where I was yesterday there were several blacks there and a couple of Hispanics, although not as many as I would normally see at this CFA.

The other interesting demographic I saw yesterday at CFA was a lot of young adults (high school and college/20 somethings) there some in groups of 2-3 while others were with their families.

Years ago black people loved CFA. However, since many blacks are also Democrats and liberal, they are now told to hate CFA and so they do. I worked with a black guy that loved CFA but refused to eat there due to his social/political crowd that told him not to. Talk about mind-numbed robots.

The libs are clearly worried. Here’s one example from one of their little activist newsletters;

Oh, and another bit of general bellyaching, this one directed at Steve King:

“These two groups view gay men as being “not men””

They are correct. They are biological mistakes in the gender ontology of human beings.

But in the world of Leftist Luddites, up is down, black is white, cold is hot, etc.

Same here; I went to the Monroeville CFA and saw a very mixed crowd. Old and young, white and black. Some of the black folks were wearing T shirts that said “Keep God In This City”.

I was at Monroeville, too!!! From about 6:30 pm until 7:30. I agree - nice mix of ages & races. What I found particularly inspiring though we’re the 20 somethings who were there alone & stuck around for an hour waiting to be served. This young people, in my opinion, have principle.

I wish I’d seen more black folks when I stopped by. I only saw an older black man with a couple of young black guys, and a student with a Liberty University shirt.

However, after going to Chick Fil-A, I stopped by Sally Beauty and chatted with an acquaintance about the experience. I was at the counter, paying for my items, and the two black employees broke into the conversation. They said “people like me” would always eat at Chick Fil-A, that they didn’t like to judge people, and the Chick Fil-A CEO should have kept his mouth shut. So I guess some of Obama’s base will follow him into moral oblivion.

Too cool! I was there from 12:15 until a little before 1:00. The staff did a great job keeping things moving. I spoke with a very nice 70 year old woman in line behind me for a while, and told her that it was the same kind of atmosphere at TEA party rallies. She told me that she never attended one because they might be a bunch of radicals. I hope I eased her mind on that. NO ONE was there just because they wanted a chicken sandwich!
