Rachel Elizabeth is the woman shown in a video that went viral after a patron at her place of employment, Chick-fil-A, taped her as he ranted about the political views of a company executive on "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day."
Rachel appeared on Fox News Cavuto today to tell her attacker and viewers that she forgives him and that she believes in treating others with respect as she did when she was being attacked (verbally) as the attacker video-taped and harassed her. She never lost her composure. The harassers video tape backfire on him completely.
She is truly a role model and sweetheart. The young employee's poise in responding to the customer, who was identified as Adam Smith, garnered perhaps even more notice than did Smith's comments. Rachel appeared on today's Your World to react to the events of the past few days since the drive-thru interaction.
Yesterdays interview of Rachel on FNC Your World :

Chick-fil-A Sweetheart ping!
She is, indeed, an excellent role model. She demonstrates her Christian upbringing beautifully.
When I saw the video and watched her refinement in responding and coolness in enduring this bullying and mindless baiting, I thought: ‘There may still be hope for America’.
I guess I’m not as forgiving as she is. I want to see this thug ruined.
Her parents must be so proud of her. What a wonderful role model for young women.
Contests are never won by "playing defense," no matter how brilliantly executed.
It took me a little work to pull this post and the sources together but I was moved by the interview yesterday and wanted to share it.
Varney did a great job setting it up and she showed great poise and Humility on the show while being complimented as well as at the window of Chick's while being insulted. You don't see this every day on TV.
Too bad she couldn’t weigh in on the jerks baseless and silly accusations of hate. Just where in his idiotic mind was that crap coming from? I dislike homosexuality, and therefor I hate. Hate what? How about I hate your free water ploy to be able to direct your mindless social justice against an employee because no one in a position of authority is going to give you the time of day. They have much more important issues at hand.
Conservatives trust to the ballot box. Liberals conduct incessant assaults on society and intimidate the he&^ out of Conservatives to the point that we fell we cannot respond without worse abuse and baseless accusations.
I feel it here at work. My boss talks to me in the same bullying and hostile way, daily and hourly. I can't respond and I have to live with it. (By the way she's a Liberals and knows I am not)
The girl did the right thing, though. Nothing she said was going to matter to him, because he was stage managing his OWN reality TV moment. If she's right, she's wrong... if she's wrong, she's wrong. She could only make a bad situation worse by going head to head with a creep like that. By the way, he's probably just as much of a gaping rectum with everyone else he knows and works with, as well. He didn't get like that overnight!
The biggest irony of this whole thing is the thug's name, Adam Smith...a name historically associated with free markets and laissez faire economics.
I think his former employer ought to throw a little salt on the wound by hiring Rachel in their marketing/sales department. Her poise and composure would serve them well, and Smith can suck on the fact that he got her the job.
That said, I am certain only a special kind of jerk would do this to the employee who is serving him.
This clown has been that kind of jerk all his life, bet on it.
When I hear people bemoan the fact he is suffering I think about what his intentions were when he went to Chick-Fil-A. He meant to bring down wrath upon not only Mr. Cathy but this poor girl too. He would have been tickled pink if his crowd had made him the poster boy for their movement....the only thing this ahole is sorry about is the consequences of his actions. He was lying in the so called apology video in that he still feels exactly as he did before his action!!!
Although I have met a lot of Chick-Fil-A employees with just as much class.
‘Bemoan the fact that he is suffering’ - He has chosen to see himself as the victim in this, flipping evil to good. It is ever the way with perps. He is suffering the consequences of his actions. Whatever else could he possibly have expected?
I don’t disagree she handled the confrontation as best as could be expected, given the circumstances.
I just don’t see any particular reason to be hopeful for America because of it.
In effect he was saying he was sorry for briefly not being the wonderful, enlightened superman he really is.
Narcissism is still the hallmark of a liberal, right Mr. President.
He is everything commie libs stand for. Do it their way or else. She was what Christians are and unfortunately how they are treated.
Pray for America
I still have to wonder what he would have done had the worker been a big burly male instead of the demure sweetheart-next-door type.
A coward like him probably wouldn't have uttered a peep.
