‘Totally Heterosexual’ Anti-Chick-fil-A Tough Guy Fired for Bullying Drive-Thru Girl
The Blaze ^ | 8/3/2012 | Becket Adams

Posted on 08/03/2012 9:07:17 AM PDT by Beave Meister

It appears Blaze readers weren’t the only ones disgusted by the actions of Adam M. Smith, the grown man who recorded a video of himself berating a female employee at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru in Tucson, Ariz.

It looks like his former employers at Vante were just as displeased:

Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante and its employees.

As TheBlaze’s Mike Opelka noted this morning, Smith believes the chicken chain is really hateful. So, naturally, he decided to record himself harassing a Chick-fil-A employee for having the nerve to work for such a “horrible” company.

Sounds like someone needs to come out of the closet. Why berate a female, why not a male?

Hmmm, come on out Mr. Smith or you’ll miss the Make-Me-Throw-Up Sodomyathon.

Damn it, I was just in Tucson yesterday. Had I known they had a Chick Fill there I would have stopped by and got some food. They do not have any in MI where I am from.

Adam’s day started out with expectations of adoration and glorification by his peers acknowldedging his couragous convictions and actions for his liberal ideals. I expect it ended with a fizzle and a good dose of how capitalism works in the real world.

Good Luck, Adam. Maybe McDonalds is hiring. I suspect the Ash Bridge you left at Chick Filet would prohibit opportunities for employment there.

Come to think of it, your precious government would love to enroll you and claim you as a dependent.

They should at least charge 10 cents for a free drink of water - with a lid and straw (assumed ice)for someone ordering only that in a drive-thru.

I really gotta wonder what sorta training goes on at Chik-Fil-A...

Somehwere in their video training there is probably a statement that, if someone starts ranting and insulting chik-fil-a you should just “kill them with kindness” and not respond in a negative way.

For him to say, “totally heterosexual” tells me right there that he’s a flamer. If he wasn’t he would have said, “I’m not a damn faggot”.

He claims to be a board member of FEAT in Arizona.

Here is the website/contact/etc for FEAT. Look at their code of ethics, and let them know what you think.

You got that right. What the left is doing is also getting close to violating civil rights laws with so much of their extremist agenda.

Yup. That nails it. It also brings to mind that thread about the ten words that liberals use but don’t understand. One of them is “tolerance”. ;-)

This guy is as queer as a 3 dollar bill. He speech and his actions are about as gay as it gets.

The purpose of his confrontation was to try to get someone to react inappropriately to his bullying and then edit the tape to make gays seem like victims. Gay activists use this tactic all the time. The young lady showed great poise and refused to be provoked.

There’rd be no “fil-A.”

Dear Tolerance Nazi Adam M. Smith

August 2, 2012 By Mark Shea 75 Comments

“Viciously bullying sweet, good, minimum wage people struggling to get by in a down economy is very persuasive of the justice of your position and engenders in me a powerful sense of sympathy for you,” said no one, ever.

The genius posted this vile thing yesterday in the sincere belief that he was some kind of hero for beating up this poor young woman and, as of last night, the revulsion-to-praise ratio on his Youtube page was running about 400 to 5. Then some clever people decided to search the web for his identity and began to post information on how to contact (perhaps the more apt word is “deluge” or “besiege”) his employer to inform them that they have a royal tool representing them on the web. Shortly thereafter, either due to a dim sense that he was not in the Vanguard of History after all, or perhaps because friends contacted him privately and attempted an intervention with the words, “For the love of God, stop helping Gay Marriage”, this bullying thug removed the video without comment o.r apology to the woman he chose to humiliate. He has also scrubbed his Linked in profile and is making himself extremely scarce. Good job, jerk.

Unfortunately for him, the Internet is forever. Copies were instantly made and are now circulating everywhere. He now faces the doom of becoming the Star Wars Kid, the Numa Numa Guy, and the Dramatic Chipmunk of Gay Fascism. Perhaps years from now, he will still be getting on elevators and having people point and whisper, saying, “It’s that jerk from the Internet!”

Congratulations dude. You have, better than most, really put a face on Gay Fascism and crystalized all that is ugly in this ugly, ugly movement. In your own way, you may well have helped Mitt Romney win this fall.

Yes but today is the day for the protestors to make their statements. So, since I could not get through the mad house at Chick Fil A on Wednesday, my wife and I are going now to have lunch at Chick Fil A in Spartanburg, SC. May I suggest others do the same at their local Chick Fil A across the country and show these really hateful people that we love Chick Fil A and their right to freedom of speech.

He originally posted the video on his YouTube page, so I guess he was identified from that. I would like to know how long it took him to decide to take it down. However long it was, it was too slow.

Maybe he needs to claim that he owns the copyright on the video and spend all his abundant free time making DMCA complaints against anywhere hosting the copies of it.
