Let’s hope the kids with some SENSE will push back to KEEP Chick-Fil-A on campuses, while SHAMING those who are trying to deny free speech to the owners of the company.
Ha, funny imagery!
This Campus Pride is trying to get all liberal colleges to oust Chick-Fil-A.
From the piece:
“Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A, is in for a shock when thousands of college students go back to school this month. His anti-gay remarks, coupled with Chick-fil-A’s secretive donations to anti-gay organizations and a documented hate group for nearly a decade (to the accumulated sum of $5 million), add fuel to an already burning fire.
As the executive director of Campus Pride, the leading national organization for LGBT students and campus groups, I have heard complaints about Chick-fil-A for years now. The company’s presence and noncompliance with LGBT-inclusive policies on college campuses has been the subject of petitions and protests for as long as I can remember. The truth is finally out, and campuses are starting to take action.”
so the rest of the companies on college campuses better tow the party line or else ,Hello USSR
“.. Chick-fil-As secretive donations to anti-gay organizations and a documented hate group for nearly a decade ... I have heard complaints about Chick-fil-A for years now.”
Huh. Probably not TOO secretive then, right, Mary?
We need to elect patriot and conservative legislators in state houses who are willing to cut off funding from leftist state universities who are running Stalinist re-education camps.
Speech codes are unacceptible, as are mandatory cheerleading for whatever selected group the university presidents are pushing.
No free speech on campus, no taxpayer money. Period! We need to engage in this fight against the goosestepping education Nazis.
An idea whose time has more than come . . .
What a pantload. Who has ever heard of such protests before? The company has repeatedly said it does not discriminate in hiring or serving customers. If you're leftist and your lips are moving, you're lying.
Love that ‘Mary’, lmao. Yes, the author is arrogant and silly.
Never heard of any, and his “the truth is finally out” is mere bravado: He is self-important like all rainbow-agenda people. As well as self-deluded.
In the interest of being gay-friendly, all college students should be required to eat nothing but corndogs, bananas, and popsicles on campus.
If they want a fast food restaurant, only McDonalds should be allowed so Moochelle can run around the country scolding them for their food choices.
This is headed for an epic fail. Like colleges in general.
Sad to think that institutions like Harvard started out as seminaries. Now they’re seminaries for the godless Church of Marxism.
BTW, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn must be a required reading course for all freshmen.
Christian parents should make note of these anti-Christian universities and avoid sending their children there. Obviously, an institution that allows the homosexual bullies to run their campus would not be a healthy environment for Christians.
As a Freeper who has adopted the monicker “madprof98,” can you tell us of adventures you’ve had in our institutions of “higher learning?”
I like reading good stories, madprof98.
This is a prime example of the moving goal post pressure group. In the old days, I was all for tolerance of "alternative life-styles". Then came AIDS and Hepatitis and some of these "alternative life-styles" claimed it to be a civil right to donate blood?! I thought they were insane!
Now we see a campaign that baldly states that unless you actively work for LGBT policies, you should be shut down. There is obviously no evidence that Chik-Fil-A, as a company, has discriminated against employee or customers (believe me these "alternative life-styles" are searching!) Yet, because the owner believes in traditional marriage, his company is to be destroyed. Words fail!
...aaaaaand enrollment at said colleges "unexpectedly" drop.
My wife and I will be voting early on election day, then heading to CFA for a victory meal. Join in, America!
