Per FR rules, I cannot post from the huffington puffingting post, but I get this image from the movie "Animal House" from this article where, in this case, in the liberal frat, huffington post, the pledges are spanked and told to say, "I hate Chick Fil A, please sir may I have another"

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Now they will have to drive across town to score their Chick Fil A chicken strips, and wolf them down real fast before they get back, or somebody might catch them. Sort of like Kramer, in the old SEINFELD skit, in which Kramer is on strike against KENNY ROGERS CHICKEN, yet he is sending NEUMAN to get his chicken for him. And Seinfeld catches him eating it!

Noncompliance”, petitions, protests!! These folks are having a little trouble getting their Cultural Revolution going. Mao would advise them that politics come out of the barrel of a gun. It’s the next step??

I bet there is not one college or any organization that will protest muslim eateries. Since muslums kill homosexuals, well I guess that is not as bad as not wanting them to marry.

Obviously, the term “liberal”, that defines these individuals, doesn't include “liberty”.

This is why liberals and Islam sidles up to one another....submission.

Yes. With each victory, they have upped the ante, until at this point they are so swelled up with pride and confidence, they are like a balloon that needs bursting. One could say they are too huge now not to collapse.

Hear! Hear!

Perhaps of interest (I had to look), 26 states have Republican controlled legislatures with only 15 being controlled by the Dims. The rest are split.

Now may be as good a time as any at least in the pubbie states.

Here's the WIKI graphic between the good guys (red) and the bad guys for governors ... 29 pubbies, 20 dims and one indie. I don't think we have to wait we just have to push our legislators now! ;-)

The award Cathy received gives him another opportunity to support some of his favorite charities. While Cathy is known for awarding $1,000 scholarships to Chick-fil-A employees – $24 million so far – he also established WinShape Foundation, which seeks to foster winning leadership qualities in young people. He also has built 12 WinShape foster homes that provide quality care for children. Chick-fil-A has donated $100 million to foster care, marriage enrichment, and camp retreats.
Cathy will donate his winnings to two Union City organizations: Christian City, a foster care facility, and Southwest Christian Care, an organization that provides respite care.”

And yet the left hates this guy.

They hate him because he does not enrich THEIR causes: Making gay marriage legal in all states, and promoting gays in every aspect of culture. Doesn’t matter what Dan Cathy does, he could save a million children, but if he has the gall (to their thinking) to NOT stand with the gays, then he is against them - hence, an enemy.

CFA donates a lot of food to colleges. My daughter graduated from a Christian (conservative) university and I know they donated a lot to them. I’m sure they do that with other schools as well.

I hope these idiots get what they want. Serves them all right!

The kind of school where I taught—by choice—was quite low on PC—so much that I thought the concept must be a joke—but my kids selected more prestigious institutions, places where “diversity” was treasured but dissent from PC orthodoxy was simply unimaginable. I have seen up close and personal what that does to people you love, and it is not pretty.

My wife and I went to the local Chick-Fil-A today around lunch, since I'd wanted to try a peach shake when I was there last on CFA today, but the wait to get one was way too long.

Anyway, CFA was packed (northern MD). Two lines almost to the doors in the back. Not nearly as many people as on CFA day, but I was still definitely suprised to see so many today. Definitely not what I'm used to seeing at a fast food restaurant.

BTW, the peach shake was great! Glad I went back, even though fast food isn't really my thing.

What we need is an end to government involvement in education. It’s the worst thing that ever happened to this country. Government funded colleges are only going to become more radicalized. All education should be private.

If the majority wanted them off, wouldn’t it be easier to not eat there? Then they would go out of business on campus, right?

Well, they must know that won’t work.

“I don’t want to eat there, so you can’t eat there either.”

What ever happened to “freedom of choice?” They are taking away the right of women to choose freely!

Well kiddies, we are going to take up any slack in Chick-fil-A sales.

They do.

We just posted an ad for an entry-level role, fresh-grad type. Had 300+ responses. I screened on degree earned (industrial organizational psychology (WTF?)), student body activities, and internships to various politico's, and then last but not least, what sort of charitable work they may have done. Eliminated half off them off the bat. Sent emails to the rest, eliminated another 30 based on their phone demeanor (AXE vs ASK), finally had to do group interviews 6-8 candidates at a time and usually had 2 that I liked out of each group. But when they don't call to follow up or return your call for setting and interview.... it's easy to eliminate that group too.

I have two new people starting tomorrow at 8am. It was going to be 3, but on Friday the third person said she really wasn't interested and that she was going to stay where she was.
