Chick-fil-A Vandal Manny Castro Probed by Police
Gather.com ^

Posted on 08/04/2012 12:43:54 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

A gay Los Angeles artist who's admitted to vandalizing a local Chick-fil-A eatery is being investigated by the police.

Artist Manny Castro was so perturbed by CEO Dan Cathy's comment about gay marriage, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Castro Thursday scrawled the words "Tastes Like Hate" in huge lettering on the side of the Torrance restaurant.

To his credit, the artist came forward to identify himself as the unknown vandal, but he should at least be forced to pay restitution for the cleanup. Why should the owner foot the bill?

This week's Chick-fil-A hoopla has shown how immature Americans have become. People on both sides of the gay marriage issue completely overreacted to Cathy's remarks.

While Cathy is the CEO of a company, he is not a senator or a governor, and has no political power. If you don't like his opinions, simply don't patronize his restaurants.

But, it's pretty disgraceful to punish the local Chick-fil-A owners, and their hourly wage employees, for the actions of the CEO. They are just trying to earn a living. Castro accomplished nothing by vandalizing the local Torrance franchise.

Did the appropriately named "MANNY" come clean out of a true sense of remorse? Or to mitigate his situation knowing the heat was on? Or like most, shall we say, flambouyant homosexuals, he was merely *ATTRACTING ATTENTION TO HIMSELF*"? Perhaps this was his idea of bragging rights. IMO Make him clean up his mess, but then given the delicarte nature of these types that would be cruel and unusual punishment. Rhetorical question of the day; whould this gutless wonder vandalize a mosque the same way? Or harass a mom and pop falafel stand in Dearborn?

I guess he realized he's not much of a man so he decided to try and be a woman.

Just pretend, City of LA, that Manny smeared the business by spray painting a confederate flag on the building instead of a gay slogan.

Then giving him thirty days in the slammer will be easy.

[2] If the guy ‘fessed up, what investigation is needed?. Get a copy of the confession, the money amount of the vandalism, pull out the old statute book, and CHARGE him!

Just a day after Julian Castro was named the Rat keynote speaker. Coincidence?
Well, probably absolutely, but 'rats is rats.

Reading the biography for this guy Castro shows him to be a real work. As to be expected, a total dirtbag who relies on shock value as opposed to true craft, artistry, and detail.

Artist Manny Castro is taking the art world and the streets of Los Angeles by storm. He is responsible for hanging thousands of Ruby Slippers over power lines throughout the city and installing oversized simulated cocaine bags on telephone poles around major intersections. Spawning mixed reactions of outrage and delight, this buzz led up to Castro's sold out "This Hollywood Life" show. As another demonstration of his knack for getting the public's attention, he caused quite a stir with his 30-by-30 foot painting of Lady Gaga depicted as Christ draped over the Hollywood hills, which Perez Hilton called "Amazeballs" on his website. Castro is also a frequent collaborator with the chart-topping pop-duo "Karmin", which features his artwork in their music video "Brokenhearted".

What did the CEO say that was so perturbing?


Change it to this:
"Manny Castro was so influenced and brainwashed by the liberal media's biased, hate-filled mis-reporting of Dan Cathy's comment about marriage..."

There. Fixed.

Forced to pay for cleanup? How about a thirty day jail sentence?

Make him do the cleanup. Hand him a bucket of paint, and the smallest brush you can find.

Then give him the 30 days in the slammer.

They now have no political power whatsoever. In their hour of need, Obama threw them under the bus, with his silence and no comment. What a bunch of dummies!!!

As for the decent. law abiding, peaceful, millions upon millions of Americans, you gay folks a now a branded, defined enemy of the state. Just like Black Americans, who have, by their own hand, supported Obama, and are now trapped on the Obama plantation of economic slavery, you gay folks have sealed and defined your own destiny with your excessive tyrant and criminal actions. Folks, go figure.

“???”

Agreed...that’s a load of crap. People on “our” side were reacting in support of Cathy’s position and/or in support of his first amendment rights AFTER he was viciously attacked by the gay media and fascist politicians. THAT’S what prompted the reaction, and it was in no way an overreaction.

I also take exception to this “equivalency” statement, that both sides over reacted.

The left picked this fight, against this company, at this time.

The left took an interview given by the head of this company to a religious publication. They went online and found this interview. They went into their hissy fit meltdown mode over it, saying to their leftist buddies, can you believe somebody said they believe marriage is a man and a woman????

Then, someone, somewhere, gave the signal to launch this story into the blogosphere and into the MSM. The MSM dutifully went into controversial outrage mode, that this company has people who believe that marriage is a man and a woman. The MSM and the liberals picked this fight. It’s clear that they wanted to intimidate this company, and, to send a message to others in corporate America, that this will happen to them, if they don’t bow down to the homosexual agenda.

The reason the right reacted with Huckabee promoting an appreciation day, and people turning out for same, is because the left started this. The left picked this fight. It’s not as if Chick Fill A had announced some new public campaign against homosexual marriage.

I would add that, as if on cue, liberal mayors of various liberal cities chimed in that Chick Fill A is not welcome in their cities. Again, we saw liberal politicians picking the fight. They pre-emptively announced that this company is not welcome. They fired the first shot so to speak. (Are we still banned from using any violent or military imagery, as we were lectured about after Tucson? If so, I just violated that standard, sorry).

We can debate homosexual marriage all day long, but, the facts should be clear to all. The facts of how this incident with Chick Fill A became a liberal cause of the day should be broadcast far and wide. We can debate the issue, but, let’s all be aware of who wanted to have this debate over a fast food chain and their owner’s opinions.

Just said the same Jim.

As an historian I see a lot of things going on which the NAZI’s did .
Intimidation, thuggery, assaults, hurt business, try to close business etc.

How long before the homostapo want CFA and other places to have a yellow cross on their stores?

They are now going to have yet another day seeing as their kiss but fest was a joke, well no problems how about having a list sent out and on here on which companies give to these jokers.

Another Christophobic homophile shows his hateful ass...ho hum...IF the MSM wasn't in the back pocket of the extreme Left forcing them to spike the reporting of the many acts of Leftist racism, bigotry, misogyny and just plain mean-spirited HATE that may harm the destroy America agenda of Obama and his minions...THIS story would be justifiably superfluous.

Funny, but I believe 8/1/12 (America's dissolute chickens coming home to roost) may have the same awesome national effect over domestic policies as 9/11/01 did to our foreign.

To his credit, the artist came forward

We should credit him? We live in a world where criminals are proud of their crimes. Not only are they proud, they publicly brag about their crimes and expect to be praised and rewarded for them -- not only by private citizens but by those in government and industry as well.

Commit a crime, put it on your blog, then sit back and soak up the plaudits and take your bows for weeks afterward, thanking each of your fans personally for his support.

It's a sick world.

got that right.

If this was about marriage then why not go after muslims, Islam, and their stores, gas stations, restaurants, and mosques?

No they have their freak parades, they say they're proud of how they have their sex, they then mock Christians at their parades, funny they don’;t do it to muslims.

Course I won't hold my breath for the media to actually ask themthis and report this bigotry.

Now they plan another event seeing as their last one was a massive failure, and this is all about them having sex with another guys ass etc.
