Posted on 08/01/2012 12:18:06 PM PDT by servo1969
Today is “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”
After intolerant and First Amendment-hating Chicago politicians blocked Chick-fil-A from building a restaurant, former Governor Mike Huckabee announced his support for the restaurant chain and its Constitutional right of free speech. He declared today Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
Allen sent this picture from west county St. Louis.
Allen added: People are standing in line 100+ deep to go inside. The lines go out and around the building. Two lines of drive through cars are around the shopping center.
St. Louisans also came out in huge numbers to show their support for the First Amendment.
The lot was jam-packed…
(Mike took these photos in Chesterfield, Missouri.)
The line goes around the block.
The line of cars wraps all the way around to the main boulevard, where the line still continues.
The surrounding streets and parking lots are packed.
The restaurant is full and the line goes out the door.
Normally, with this crowd volume you would expect short tempers and bedlam. That’s not the case today at Chick-fil-A. While the surrounding restaurant chains are empty, the people in this line are happily making a statement, talking to each other with smiles on their faces. They’re patriots taking a stand against a gross violation of our First Amendment right. And they are doing it in 100 degree temperatures.
Any bets if this will make the MSM tonight?
If you have more photos please send them in!
Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) bought Chick-fil-A for his office staff today.
Here’s a photo from Texas.
Ruth Wendelken sent this from Texas: This is at 11:15 at the Los Colinas Texas Chick-fil-a. Notice the line is three cars wide around the building. The line of foot traffic is huge. Notice the sign of 315 cars served at that time. Now in center line. Its a great day for Freedom of speech. Take that Boston, Chicago and San Francisco!
As I stood in line at our local Chick-Fil-A, I was struck by how happy, polite, courteous, and orderly the huge crowd was. And how clean the restaurant was.
Had this been a bunch of Liberals and Democrats, the place would have been trashed, people would be fighting and cursing, riots would have broken out, and the store would have been looted. The police who were directing traffic would instead have been arresting people and setting off tear gas.
My thoughts exactly! I just went to my local CFA again, thinking maybe there'd be a midafternoon lull. It's more jammed than it was late this morning. I couldn't get in either drive thru lane or find parking anywhere near the store. I didn't get the milkshake I was hoping for, but I left feeling very hopeful for the future, for the first time in a very long time! :)
It was so crowded my wife could not even get near the restaurant to get pics. The parking lot was gridlocked at the entrances.
She gave up even thinking about trying to get in, and will go back later.
Let's just say that , for them, the turnout was UNEXPECTED.
Chick-Fil-A is just a proxy for the voting booth on November 6th.
People can’t wait to vote against the Left and defeat them.
They are chomping at the bit.
I was watching Shep while I worked out on the treadmill at the gym. After a while, I decided he’d NEVER mention Chick-fil-A, so I turned to HLN, and they had a fairly positive report about the overwhelming support Cathy received. It even featured an older black gentleman with bible in hand.
really? I hate that flamer!!!!
This is simply awesome!
I LOVE it when the faggot lobby tries to stick a thumb in the eye of normal Americans and normal Americans just shrug and laugh!
Wow! It gives me hope America can still be saved from the scumbag Democrats and their “mainstream” newsrooms.
To put it simply, homosexuals are unclean.....medically and spiritually.
Perfect! I love it!
Didn’t go today. The line was a block and a half long, and I didn’t have time to go.
So I will go Friday and Saturday instead.
oh yeah he is!!!
Man that sounds good.
Sure beats Burger Queen and McSlop where the help can't even speak English.
This makes me so happy! Unfortunately, the nearest CFA to me is a few hundred miles away; however, as soon as I move to Texas, I will frequent the place as often as possible (as I used to do)! Hopefully, this response is an indication of the election results in November! (BO and his minions must be quaking in their boots today!)
That’s AWESOME that even in liberal looneytown there are still some people who believe in traditional values. Which one did you go to? The one in Hollywood? That is the closest one to me but without a car everything is far away LOL. Too bad they dont deliver I would order some now
Chick-fil-A should run a commercial with Obama stating he believed the same thing when he was running for office. And then state that they have the same opinion he did but they aren’t running for office so they don’t have to accept money to change their beliefs.
Hats off to you. What we are seeing today is just a preview for November 13,2012 and I’ll bet the left will rue this day. When you step on a cats tail it sometimes wakes them up.
Continuing to support CFA with your money AFTER today will add more confirmation to today's TURNOUT and MESSAGE.
Heck, most liberals will attend some event ONCE, if there's something in it for them. We must stick to our guns, or lose them.
I hope this is like Nov. 6, 2012 on Election Day. (Strongsville is a Conservative/Republican oasis in a County that is KNOWN for massive Voter Fraud, and is infamous for the County Commissioners being Indicted for kickbacks, bribes, corruption, etc.)
In the OC region..
Holy cow! (No pun intended.)
If you were in BC, not Toronto, I could deliver. We go up there alot.
“According to R Limbaugh, some Wendys are sporting signs of support for CFA....”
We were sitting in the long and winding drive-thru and had Rush on when he said that.
You know the MSM / libs don’t understand. Their world is dog-eat-dog.
And I'd drive down there from King...
Though it's near my workplace and not where I live, the Suffolk, VA Chick-Fil-A's turnout was a beautiful sight to see. From end to end in this pic are the cars of patrons. They were overwhelmed!
Election Day is TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6. Please stop posting Nov. 13, or else everyone here will think you are an Obama campaign plant trying to pull the oldest dirty trick in the book.
To paraphrase Chic-fil-a, “beat mor Jackasses” in November.
Lewisville, Texas CFA - customers converging from parking lots of other fast food chains, drive up doubled up, then inside - all tables occupied, all races represented, and as many people as could fit inside (about 60?) waiting in line to place an order.
Success for FREE SPEECH for ALL!!!
Imagine the MSM horror if some mayor banned Ben & Jerry’s ice cream sales because of (pick a reason).
Up until now we have probably been to a Chick-Fil-A maybe half a dozen times...we now plan on making Chick-Fil-A a regular stop. We believe in supporting Christian values...let alone the first amendment.
OOPS. You are right.
Wendys Corporate got wind of that and the signs came down. Wendys then came out with a statement saying the signs were the lone act of a rogue franchisee and not the opinion of Wendys Inc. They can kiss my business goodbye.
My local, small-town GA CFA has been packed to the rafters since they opened this morning! 45 minute wait and one of the managers said that every employee on their payroll was working open to close today. The crowd was friendly and cheerful. Many comments were heard throughout the crowd about how bad Zero was going down if the turnout on Nov 6th was anywhere close to what CFA was getting today.
One of the local McDs and the local KFC had their billboards posting We agree with Dan Cathy and C-F-A Appreciation Day on them. Amazing that even CFAs competitors were supporting them.....
Yep..........he's a loser.
His favorite eatery is Nathan's.

Glad we’ll all see you at the polls on Nov. 6!
Friday could be an interesting day. Supposedly the gays and the rest of the left intend to stage "kiss ins" at many Chick-fil-As.
You know, part of me is hoping that the media does NOT cover this,,because those of us who are watching now know we are not alone,,,,,and that matters more than anything. I would be just fine with the fact we are being ignored. There is a lot of support out there for us,,,so,,,be strong my friends and take heart.
AND today we saw that more than just Freepers have the same values.
Thank God... I thought we were alone.
Chick-fil-A, 8875 Tampa Avenue, Northridge, Los Angeles, CA, August 1st, 2012, 12:00 Noon. Line is all the way around building.
I’d have had lunch at Chick-Fil-A today if I had any teeth. Still waiting for my dentures. SIIIIIIIIIIIIGH!
The place was crowded. I drove by while out shopping for supplies this morning.
Wonderful! Thanks for doing that!!!
Beeyootiful! I do hope that millions against zero’s poofter agenda come out in November to run him out of our White House.
“Hats off to you. What we are seeing today is just a preview for November 13,2012 and Ill bet the left will rue this day. When you step on a cats tail it sometimes wakes them up.”
I hope you show up to vote on election day, which is NOVEMBER 6TH!!!!!2012
Sorry, hate to be the error police but when it comes to the election date, we need every vote we can get!!!
Drove by the CFA nearest us at 3:00 CST, and it still had cars lined up around the building and I could see people standing in line.
Plan to go there for dinner tonight.
