Chick-Fil-A - Appreciation Day in Paramus NJ[stunning footage of lines in a BLUE state Aug 1]

[In the blue state of NJ, stunning footage of line at Chick-Fil-A on Aug 1]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m90FsST_1p4&feature=youtu.be

Chick-fil-A is a conservative company that stands for traditional marriage and operates on Biblical principles. They REFUSE to bow to political correctness from the media!

We drove 40 miles to support Chick-Fil-A. We sat in traffic for over an hour on Route 17. When we entered the mall and saw Chick-Fil-A the line filled the floor. As we approached the line we realized it was a maze throughout the back of Chick-Fil-A. We stood 2 hours in line and met so many other supporters of traditional biblical values. It really was a fun evening sharing conversation with like minded Americans. At one point in time the count was 833.

We now ask you to take this walk in appreciation of Chick-Fil-A. Enjoy!

When my wife and I when to vote Tues. there were lines of people voting in the republican primary and we did not see one person casting a vote in the democrat primary and there were several blacks. Something is happening folks.

“Chick-fil-A is a conservative company that stands for traditional marriage and operates on Biblical principles”

May I gently correct you, fellow Freeper?
Chik-fil-a is a restaurant chain. The man who runs the company, Dan Cathy, is a Christian who believes in the traditional, biblical definition of marriage.

The screaming homosexual leftists cannot discern the difference; let's make sure that we always do.

Excellent job taking that footage! I was there in Paramus also. We got on line, about half-way down that back hallway, at 5:40pm and were at the counter being served in approx one hour. It really was encouraging to see so many like-minded, patriotic people spontaneously gather to make a statement about freedom of speech, religious freedom and to just say that they are tired of all the crap coming from Obama and the left. I drove about 50 miles each way,during rush hour, but it was well worth it. It was a great experience! Really great job by everyone who came out all over the country!

I certainly do not claim to be the most religious or devout person here at Free Republic.

But, to those who look for signs from God, who look for signs that He is working through other people, yesterday was a strong sign of that.

The owners of Chick Fill A found their faith tested, and had to wonder about what would happen with their business going forward, once they got on the wrong side of liberal activists. I think that what happened yesterday had to give them great hope that their faith is rewarded, and that things are going to go well for them.

Yes, not only is New Jersey a blue state, but that area is very Democrat-leaning, I know it well.

This to me is just breath-taking: There was a massive victory yesterday against the entire PC liberal, and especially, Rainbow agenda. Historic. No other interpretation is possible.

I was shocked at how many people were at Chick-Fil-A at 9:45pm.. You could feel the patriotic energy among the crowd; There were only a couple of bimbo teen ‘protestors’ holding signs and they were looking at each other as if to say “I wonder if we’re still getting paid for staying here so late” LOL!

Same experience here. The republican line extended almost to the door and we saw not one democrat voter while we were waiting.

This is the best shot I’ve seen - it was like that yesterday in Atlanta (no surprise) but in NEW JERSEY???? I heard they broke a “world record” - unsure what record that was (most $, most customers, most food served)... probably all three!!!

It restores my faith in my fellow citizens to see things like this :)

Yes, I think a lot of people viewed the national action on Aug 1 - an enormous and unprecedented upswelling of the mass of people, as it were - as being so unexpected as to be transcendent and perhaps even divinely inspired.

We were at Paramus Park also , around 2:50 PM, the line was shorter at the time. Considering Paramus is in one of the bluest areas of NJ, this event is quite significant, IMO.

My husband is from Toms River..I have been there many times..although I love the people there I do not like the way they vote..Like other states the people I knew voted like their parents did and yes that was Democrat..I actually think they are beginning to understand what Obama has done to this country and are paying more attention...So watch out B.O..

Interesting isn't it, that just a few weeks ago we (vicariously) were being screamed at by the left that corporations are not people.

Yet ...when it fits their narrative, all of a sudden corporations are people!

The left ALWAYS leaves me confused.

Yesterday and my local Chick-fil-A there were black couples with children and Hispanic couples. Everyone was smiling.. You're right ontap - something is happening - - something warm and wonderful.

Yes, I have been telling people that I believe yesterday went way beyond Chick-Fil-A in its ramifications. I think Obama made a hugely FATAL error in endorsing same sex marriage and allowing the plank to be placed officially on the DNC. It is evident in what occurred in blue states such as NJ and MA yesterday, and the fact that many black church pastors are openly abandoning him. I believe the rainbow agenda has put the final nail in the coffin for November.

I was at the Paramus Park Mall CFA, too. The video was taken earlier in the day than when I was there, but the line still went down that hallway when I arrived around 8:50 p.m.

I posted an AAR on another thread:

I went to the CFA in the Paramus Park Mall, Paramus, NJ. I arrived at the mall around 8:40 pm. The food court is on the upper level. As I was ascending the escalator I saw (part of) the line and thought it wasn't too long. It was on the other side of the upper level. As I approached what I thought was the end of the line I noticed that it turned twice and entered the hallway behind the stores! It went down to the end of the first hallway, turned the corner and continued about halfway down the next hallway. It was 8:50 pm when I reached the end of the line.

As I was waiting in line more than one person who had earlier waited in the line came back to see how it was going after their meal. They said it took them about 1.5 hours to get to the front of the line. The wife of one couple that came back counted approximately 550 people in front of me. The mall closed at 9:30, but CFA said they would try to serve everyone in line. Shortly after I made it to the end of the line, the mall security stopped others from getting in line.

Some of us near the end of the line wondered if there would be any food by the time we got to the cashiers. The security guy at the end of the line said that CFA received a large delivery yesterday. It sounds to me like they were prepared for today. As the others had said, it took about an hour and a half to traverse the line and place my order. The last person in line had placed and received their order around 10:30 p.m. After which a round of applause erupted. I, as well as others in line behind me, had never been to a CFA. Some came from all over NY state. Earlier in the day Fox News had been there.

FWIW, I ordered the spicy chicken deluxe sandwich, a small order of fries, a peach milkshake and a large unsweetened iced tea (for later). I concur with many positive reviews about the food. For fast food it was very good. I tend to avoid fast food these days, but I will make a point of visiting the other CFA stores in NJ. Mmmm, can't wait.

Not just civilized people. I was amazed by the number of young people in line yesterday. And even more inspiring, while they didn’t stay, more people showed up, and left due to the lines. But those staying were not angry or upset. Behind me in a car was a young man, maybe early 20s. Unbelievable number of young parents with newborn babies.

The local CFA (Jackson TN) sold out in the afternoon. The traffic was gridlocked in the area. I seriously doubt any gay kissers will be there tomorrow
