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 :

Original Video of Rachel in Chick-fil-A drive through window taken by Smith who says to her : "I don't know how you live with yourself and work here".
VIDEO Man Bullies Chick fil A Drive Thru Employee on ‘Appreciation Day’ Fox News Insider
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.
My thoughts exactly.
Notice it took very little time for the company to fire him. That is an indication that his HR file was already full of negatives, and this nasty incident just gave them ammo so they could pull the trigger.
It’s a good bet he acted like a jerk at work, too. His days at that company were most likely numbered before he drove to Chick-Fil-A.
The funny thing is, I know a few people like him, myself.
If you want to know something else funny... THEY are Liberals TOO!
More to the point. Why didn’t the prick that verbally assaulted Miss Elizabeth get out of his car and go in the store to do what he did? He showed he had none of what makes a man a man by staying in his car so he could flee the scene of the crime. He could have manned up and do that but he didn’t. This was nothing more than a drive-by shooting except no one was killed. The only casualty was his job, which he was fired from. Cowardly a**hole. She, BTW, was great through the entire thing.
Just curious is Elizabeth her middle or last name? Great interview.
Tucson is like that. A lot of smart people working in low end jobs because the town has had Leftist clowns from the University dominating the city government, retarding development.
So you have convenience stores being staffed by people with Bachelors degrees.
Phoenix, by contrast, started a bold business development group in 1960 called the Phoenix 40, a group of men who not only invested themselves but brought in enormous investment to Maricopa county over the next 30 years.
The results are staggering. From a couple hundred thousand people in the late 50's, Phoenix is now a massive center of industry with a population of 2.8 million or so.
Tucson, of course, is still a bit of Democratic party stronghold. People are poorer there, and the Dims keep them that way.
The interview actually started a a couple of minutes before this clip I found did and in the beginning Varney said she wants to keep her last name off the TV.
You know how the crazies are.
Has the President called her to see if she is ok?
BTW, I saw on another FR thread some negative comments regarding the Internet postings by Rachel's boyfriend.
Each of my three girls got their first jobs in high school at our local Chick-Fil-A. Friday night dates for the Mrs. and I used to be eating at Chick-Fil-A especially during the brief couple of years when all three were working there.
Each one of our girls has gone on to graduate from college and enter the workforce as a productive member of society. Part of the reason is how CFA trained them to treat their customers. Even the jerks.
In fact, his company dumped him the afternoon all this came out. Says to me that this wasn't the only occurence of behavior of this nature.
The only casualty was his job, which he was fired from.
Wasn’t aware of the job loss. Maybe he will think twice about the desperate need to be on You Tube next time.
Sure but she did better on TV than you would have.
Think about this, he taped this and then after watching it he still posted it himself thinking it would help his case. How stupid and narrow sighted.
How long did it take before he realized that nearly everyone sympathized with her (probably many gays too) and he made himself look like a crazed nutcase who stalks Innocent victims?
This is a rare case where I see the glass full.
OK, you get the award for the best laugh sarcasm comment on this thread. That was really good.
re: Has the President called her to see if she is ok?
No, you have to have the character and charm of a Sandra Fluke for that to happen.
To paraphrase Mark Twain slightly:
“Tucson for weather, Phoenix for society.”
(A one-time Phx immigrant here.)
She was the defense, the offense took the field the minute Adam Smith posted the video.
The whole thing played out perfectly.
Plus I haven't heard much about the homosexual community coming to his defense and rescue.
He was at a drive thru window, so he probably would have done the same thing. Cowards are all alike, you can see them at work here at F.R. every day, hurling their invective while hiding under the cloak of internet anonymity, saying things they would not dare say to another's face. Cowards, one and all.
I hold no anamosity to Adam and consider him a useful idiot that has probably learned a huge lesson. I honestly feel bad for him. Imagine what he is going through right now.
And you will notice with the video that he is not really comfortable doing what he is doing. Frankly, the singular HUGE mistake he made was posting this on the internet. People are MUCH ruder than he was all the time. But he was deluded by his liberal circle jerk to honestly believe that his video would get positive response.
—I want to see this thug ruined.—
You will probably get your wish.
I said the exact same in an earlier comment to a freeper ranting about him.
Ironically Adam became a useful idiot to us so called ‘haters’ and he realized it too late.
You see the LGBT gay rights revolution depends on sympathy for them and hatred and fear of us. Al Sharpton has been calling the Family Research Council a hate organization. This fellow blew it,
I see this glass as full, and that is unusual.
I posted the original thread announcing the Fox interview though I thought Cavuto would be doing it.
As for the boyfriend, I have to question his judgement as he has taken over managing her “debut.”
See this thread and the link to her new website (where the boyfriend requests donations).
She was wonderful. I guess liberal elites would class her as a hater, but she comes across as a typical traditional American...
Before Adam’s video, but after it was obvious last Wednesday was a huge success, I started saying that this was the homosexual movement’s “Bridge Too Far”.
Their strength is in “Joe Sixpack” not really thinking about this too hard. Once he does, they are done.
” Host Stuart Varney did a really good job in this segment. “
I’ve been a Varney fan for 25 years, long before Fox. Thanks for the ping.
This one surely was, look at the aftermath for the two 'contestants'. One is on TV being complimented for her display of her values. The other is fired, receiving 'death' threats is the poster boy for douchebags. A fine display of defensive civic combat.
It takes judgment to know how to respond.
Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit. (Proverbs 26:4,5)
Here's one that fits:
A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back. (Proverbs 26:3)
That fellow deserved the chastisement which he apparently received.
Wow, Rachel Elizabeth's boyfriend is asking for donations! What a creep! Hope she ditches him fast.
