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.
Forced to pay for cleanup? How about a thirty day jail sentence?
I guess he realized he's not much of a man so he decided to try and be a woman.
Then giving him thirty days in the slammer will be easy.
What did the CEO say that was so perturbing?
He’ll be joining that other nitwit on the internet. They’ll both have to go into hiding for sheer embarrassment.
What is more hateful: expressing your beliefs with words or with vandalism?
The queer lobby is turning into its own worst PR nightmare.
No, no, no....
Please don’t tell me they probed Manny’s fanny.
Isn’t that what gay marriage is all about.
“Chick-fil-A Vandal Manny Castro Probed by Police”
Fags like being probed.
Don’t look now but Castro and the national socialist left are treating Christians exactly how the NAZIs of old treated the Jews.
Name names, jerko.
This is a Bill O'Reillyism.
Manny is simply grandstanding to promote today’s art show in Chinatown.
Hope the Torrance PD pay him a little visit.
 In ANY case coming out of San Fran, an author should avoid the phrase, “Probed by Police”.
 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!
I disagree. We don’t respond quickly or heavily enough, that is why these sick individuals have gotten the power they try to toss around.
This guy sounds like a lock for “Undersecretary of Outreach to Gay Hispanics” in the second Obama term.
Did this low life “artist” say anything about Obama when he was against gay marriage? I doubt it.
Check out Manny’s portfolio:
By the nature and content of his “work”, it’s not CFA he hates—it’s women.
hate words were carved into the chest of a heterosexual building by a homo activist. Police are investigating the hate crime.
This was probably just a marketing stunt for the gay activist. He probably just got turned down for his grant request to take pictures of his but with a bullwhip in it.
Gee, I wonder if he gets any NEA funding for his , ahem “art”? Or is it hateful to ask were our tax $$$ are going?
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.
No doubt that Miss Castro has had the opportunity to swallow a lot of hate.
Just took a look at his website. His ‘art’ stinks on ice.
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.
I don’t get it. Why would a cow be painting an anti CFA message.
I think the police need to probe more deeply into the what motivates this Manny.
All they need to do now is convince government to ban ALL firearms and the 30's Germany will be well on it's way to repeating.
“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.”
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.
Manny wasn’t alone cause it required a ladder and an assist.Here we go again more apology BS.Screw you Manny and if you have illegal employees than you just did for them what AH Adam S did for him self.BOHIC
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.
Manny even calls himself “The Robin Hood of Street Art”. Really.
Big claim to fame is throwing Ruby Red Slippers (Friends of Dorothy) over telephone lines.
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.
It’s straight women he hates. He probably holds no contempt for the dykes of America.
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.
The godless left is openly mocking our constitution, our religion, our God, our moral society. They will accept nothing less than total destruction. The totalitarians are inside the wire.
Bears repeating. Often.
That's like, cool, and stuff...
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.
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.
>>To his credit, the artist came forward<<<
Had to—he had already tweeted his crime.
Like Adam Smith posting his asinine video on Youtube.
