Overwhelming Support for Chick-fil-A
FreeRepublic ^ | 08/01/2012 | Oshkalaboomboom

Posted on 08/01/2012 8:23:23 AM PDT by Oshkalaboomboom

Today is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, an event semi-organized by Mike Huckabee in response to the Gay Mafia's attempt to browbeat a private citizen into silence, all because he stood up for something he believed in. Mumbles Menino and Rahmbo can kiss moral America's collective butt if the response in other Chick-fil-A restaurants is even remotely similar to what I saw just a few minutes ago at our local one. The place is being overwhelmed!! I told the manager why we were here and, after thanking us, he said that there was no way he could have prepared for such a massive influx of customers. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they ran out of food today.

I went by the one closest to the house and I could not get near it so I left. Went back and it was worse. Have never seen it like this. Lots of great people here.

All these reports are getting me stoked to drive the 300 miles to Boise to buy a sandwich.

Eh,.. maybe not.

Legal FReepers - what can Chick Fil A do about this on Friday?

Maybe we just need another CFA day on Friday. When is the protest going to begin? Everyone take your cameras with you. Don't engage them, just snap pictures for the alternate media. Well maybe you can point and laugh. This way we can keep the occupation media honest. I hope they keep it up until the election.

Here in a Memphis burb customers are parking in nearby parking lots and walking in. It is incredible. It just convinced me that it is the perfect place to conduct voter registration drives.

That is a great idea. They can also setup a separate booth with a Tea Party voter list.

In response to the “kiss-in”, I recommend a good ‘ol “laugh-in”.

Nothing like the humorous laughing derision of ~100 good folks to set the tone (something like: “resist the devil and he will flee...”).

just got back with the family and it was amazing.
Three cops to deal with traffic, line wrapped around the building, people were polite, everyone talking in good spirits and laughing.

Line for the drive through went around the building, down the road, and half way into the homo depot parking lot.

AMAZING, now contrast that to a lefty nut protest, with swearing, name calling, hate, bigotry etc.

There’s at least an hour wait at the Chick-fil-a near the sports arena in San Diego.

I predict that the left will play the race card. They will see these pictures, and say, why aren’t there any African-Americans in there? The MSM will speculate, gee, is this place racist in addition to being homophobic?
Not if any pictures go up from the Lombard, IL, CFA. We went there at noon, stood in an out-the-door 60-deep line while the take-out folks were in lines (if they were straightened out) at least two blocks long, and two, maybe three (I forget) of the five people taking orders in the main restaurant were black, and there were another couple black employees helping with the shake orders.

I thought it would be funny if C-F-A only had their drive through window open on the ‘kiss in’ day.
It would really take the punch out of the gays tasteless gawdy disrespectful public display.

What can Chick Fil A do about this on Friday

Like an earlier poster said -

Run out of food. There is nothing illegal about closing, and you can bet they have enough profit from today. (Probably the next couple of days, actually. Like a few other folks, I couldn't make it today, so I plan on going tomorrow)

Without an audience to 'shock', their protest will fall flat on it's little fairy face.

IMHO, they KNEW they would be totally outnumbered today. I think that's why they conveniently staged their slobber-fest for Friday.

The opening story on the 4pm news here in Indianapolis was reports from 4 Chick-Fil-A restaurants that were overwhelmed with customers.

What was most interesting to me was that they interviewed a significant number of black people who were supporting the “biblical view of marriage”.

I think Baraq, Axlegrease, and Plouffy have stepped in the dogsh!t.

Just grabbed this off the Internet.

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- This is the day that's been designated by supporters of the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain as an "appreciation day" to show that they are behind CEO Dan Cathy who was criticized for saying he opposes gay marriage.

ONLY have Drive-Thru Service. Won’t stop it but will make it difficult to make a spectacle of themselves.
Otherwise, can they loiter on private propety?

I think they can only stand on a public sidewalk or property. If they are loitering and asked to leave, they must.

Thanks for the info! Was looking for reports from the Indy area.

Can’t make the drive because of a meeting with the accountant (blech) but just ordered t-shirts online.

Sounds like this needs to be extened to a Chik-Fil-A Appreciation Week or Month.

I'm in for the long haul. Always CFA, whenever possible, here on out. I printed out a list of all locations I would conceivably need until I upgrade to an iPhone and can look 'em up on the road.

Did you realize Mr. Cathy is 90 years old????

That's Truett Cathy, the founder. His son, Dan Cathy, is the one who is presently in charge and who said what he said that ending up causing this amazing show of support.

Report from Plano, Txas—Collin Creek Mall store: I hadn’t been there before but found the nearest location on the net.

I waited until 2 PM to be out of the lunch rush.

A police cruiser was in the street directing traffic. The line of cars at the drive through was two cars wide and all the way around the store. At least 20+ cars.

It’s 109 degrees here so no one was in line outside, but I could see through the windows that every space available was filled with standing customers.

I was with my 92 y.o. mother and didn’t think we could fight those crowds so we didn’t stay. But I will return to show support.

All these crowds of concerned citizens demonstrate that the silent majority will ACT in support of our America if they are just given direction and leadership

CFA on Friday should tell their workers that only the drive through is open due to wanting them to have a day off due to their hard work today, call it workers appreciation day

I plan to “act” by never patronizing one of these other fast food joints again. No Mcdonalds — EVER, if I can help it. I also plan to research the leadership of MANY of these corporations and retail outfits to see whose running them.

It’s chick fil a for us from now on. It’s my small part to speak up to these elitist bullies and homosexuals who think they can trample on us and our First Amendment rights.

Do you hear that Mcdonalds? I hope EVERY other retail establishment hears it as well. Tired of JCPenney, of Macy’s ..of ALL these jerks pushing this agenda on us.

Time to VOTE with the pocketbook, which may just be the most powerful weapon any of us can wield.

Exactly the same here in south Asheville, NC a very liberal city BTW. Had to park and walk.

I'm astonished! Asheville has a very high percentage of artists and gays. But with a few exceptional locations, they are hugely outnumbered almost everywhere in the U.S.; and it's time they realized it.

exactly the same where we were.
Busy and so yet so polite, got wished “have a blessed day” off every worker we came across, they worked their asses off and hopefully CFA does give them a day off , paid one at that and only leave the drive through open.

It kills two birds with one stone so to speak.

One woman said this should be on the news and a guy shouted out that it would never happen the media will do their best to hide this and yet have their cameras in Chicago and other cities where the homosexuals dwell on mass on Friday.

When the guy shouted that all of the place shouted you got that right or you know they will etc.

How about this idea. Buy CFA stuff (tshirts, coffee mugs, water bottles, etc...) and wear/take it to the polls on election day or go to CFA before you vote and keep a bag or paper drink cup and carry it in when you vote to "make a statement". That'll get the libs little panties in a wad.

This is an especially delicious idea because the DNC wants to make gay marriage a plank of their platform for 2012! American citizens are not allowed to openly display our voting position at the polling place -- no lapel pins, stickers, t-shirts, etc with our candidates' names -- but who can make a case that a Chick-Fil-A t-shirt violates those rules?

I have been thinking about this. I think Americans are peaceful at heart and just want to be left alone. This was one way for them to have a voice and a peaceful revolution. I firmly believe this is a shot across the bow of the occupation media and elites.

The media cannot ignore the numbers and if they do it will be at their own peril. These are also the people who watch the local news who now will begin to question all of the media credibility.

I did my part to thank them today. Original chicken sandwich and TWO peach milkshakes - one for me and one for Mom! The store in Matthews, NC (near Charlotte) was PACKED inside and out. I’d like to see an Appreciate Chick-Fil-A Day EVERY Wednesday ‘til election day.

It would be better to sing "Amazing Grace", since most of the other patriots who will be there know the lyrics.

Well, okay; you could sing "America the Beautiful" and put a little emphasis on "above the fruited plain"; but don't be mean.

LOVE IT thank you/

I heard but this might be B/S that the CFA up in Nashua NH was full of the queers and CFA was giving them free food.

it’s off my elderly MIL who usualy hears it wrong but saying that she does watch the Boston media up there so nothing would surprise me with how they report something.

On Friday the CFA should have workers appreciation day, say you lot worked so hard on Wednesday and they did alright and wiht a smile and manners.
Only have the drive through open and give most of the workers a paid day off.

Only tell the workers when they come in Friday so the media and their promotion gets all pised off again.

Our local media is mentioning this kiss butt day and saying a lot of poeple were there today due to controversial comments being made.
CONTROVERSIAL, WTH how is normal traditional marriage or the first amendment controversial.

Hope youre doing well

I'm going to try to go to CFA now. Wish me luck! Hopefully there will still be some food left to order!
But just in case, I did some early Christmas shopping on their web site. They have lots of cute gifts to choose from. I particularly like this Groovy Beach Towel . It can double as a fine banner of CFA support, and as a bonus, the rainbow tie-dye just might make a few Lib heads explode, LOL!

Chick-Fil-A Restaurant Sponsoring Gay Pride Festival
Amidst the dispute over the Chick-fil-A fast food chain’s support for traditional marriage, a New Hampshire Chick-fil-A restaurant is lending its support to the state’s gay pride event.

In a development revealed by The Daily Caller,  the state’s only Chick-fil-A store located in Nashua is sponsoring the August 11 New Hampshire Pride Fest, a celebration of gay rights...

Today a Wendy’s owner put a sign saying he stands with CFA but HQ told him to take it down after yet more baby tantrums from the homostapo so couldn’t the top man at CFA put a stop to this or even close the franchise down?

Well, Wendy's is a separate chain owned by the Triarc Corp since 2008, after the death of the founder Dave Thomas, so I imagine that their board preferred not to get involved in this issue. The individual stores may be operated by franchise owners, but the people at the top still have a lot of say in how their brand is presented to the public.

So, Chick-Fil-A's leaders have nothing to say about how Wendy's franchises operate their stores.
