College Lecturer Berates Local Chick-fil-A Employee at the Drive-Thru: ‘Horrible Corporation’
Blaze ^ | 8/2/2012 | Mike Opelka

Posted on 08/02/2012 9:37:08 AM PDT by Presbyterian Reporter

Not all of the half-million plus people who reportedly visited Chick-fil-A restaurants on August 1st were there to support the company. There were a few folks who stopped by to protest the company. One such protester is Adam M Smith.

Mr. Smith is an Adjunct Lecturer at Eller College in Arizona and he also is the CFO of Vante, a catheter manufacturing company.

Apparently, Adam Smith is not a fan of the head of Chick-fil-A and he decided to let the company know how he felt. Smith sat in the drive through lane of a local franchise, intending to only order “free water” and give the company a piece of his mind.

In the video, initially titled ”Reduce $’s to Chick-Fil-A’s Hate Groups” – these points are worth noting:

•The college students that Smith sees off in the distance and speculates are getting ready to stage a sit-in, were most likely waiting to get into the movie theater they were standing in front of. •He tells the young woman working the window, “This is a horrible corporation with horrible values.” •He also goes out of his way to stress ,”I’m a nice guy, by the way… totally heterosexual. Not a gay in me, I just can’t stand the hate.” Not long after Smith posted the video on YouTube, it was removed.

However, other web users had already spotted the clip, copied it and reposted it, citing the ”Freedom And Innovation Revitalizing United States Entrepreneurship Act of 2007.”

We offer the re-posted video for your viewing pleasure.

An illustration of just how intelligent college professors can be. Most CFA stores are franchises. The franchise owners never said anything about gay this or gay that. But this elite POS does not possess the intellect to sort this out for himself.

I can only imagine what basket weaving subject this Obamadork worshipper lectures in.

Not that anyone would care about such things, but let’s play liberal and ask for this dork’s home address.

It’s becoming time to play liberal.

Next up is Breitbart.

If the guy wanted to confront the CEO of the company, that’s one thing.

But to berate a little girl who is making minimum wage or a little better, a clerk, is so completely assinine and moronic, that I wonder if the guy’s brains are in his rump.

Typical lefty.

"Not a gay in me."

What an odd way to say that.

Maybe some bisexuals were in him, but not one gay was.

At the CFA I was at yesterday, the woman working outside in 112 degree heat to keep things moving along took time out to take some ice water to the 3 or 4 protesters who were sitting under a tree. So much for the horrible haters at CFA.

Basically, he bullied a young girl making minimum wage, who may or may not be conservative (as if it matters), to feel better about himself. What a complete scumbag.

This faggot asked the poor girl, “How can you live with your self while working for such a hate filled company”. To her credit she remained very polite. She told him she felt uncomfortable being video-recorded, he refused to shut it off and continued with his leftist rant. So he brags he got a free water and tied up the drive thru for 2 minutes...wow

He’s not a professor, he’s a lecturer. His day job is CFO at a company called Vante that apparently makes catheters.

Adjunct lecturer = loser who is too low on the academic scale to get a tenure track position. (Also the pay probably sucks)

And in the end this is about TRUE freedom of speech. Most of the time when lefties cry something is violating their right to free speech it’s nothing more than people who disagree with them. However this is GOVERNMENT saying to a business “we don’t like your religious and politics so you can’t operate in my city” which is nuts why anyone would support city officials doing this.

That employee remained very professional and did well to represent Chick Filet. I’d like to know her story. Total composure in the face of a SDB.

Wow! What does this say about Chick-Fil-A, and their customer service? The guy waits takes up a space in their line, orders only water, and what do they do?

They give him the largest size cup they have, full of water, with the straw already inserted (left the top of the straw in place for sanitary purposes), and deliver it with a smile and thanks!

Most other restaurants would give you the el cheapo plastic cup, no straw, and a “get lost” attitude.

Chick-Fil-A Rocks!

The young woman is to be commended. You can tell she's under stress the moment this girly man confronts her. However, she maintains her composure, is polite, states calmly her first duty is to her employer and repeatedly states the Chic-Fil-A is happy to serve anyone . . . all with a smile.

She was dynamite.

This is the online mission statement of Eller College where he's an adjunct lecturer...

The mission of the Eller College is to support and develop a community of scholars and learners whose knowledge, integrity, and entrepreneurial spirit will transform business and society; this is the Eller Experience.

The irony is rich! I'd think this would be embarrassing for Eller College.

It would be poetic justice if some of Vante's customers contacted them and said they no longer wanted to do business with a company that would employ a hate-filled CFO who videotapes himself bullying a teenage girl and then uploads it to youtube.
