MASSIVE LINES at Chick-fil-A on “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”
Gateway Pundit ^ | 8-1-2012 | Andrea Ryan

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!

More…
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!

MASSIVE turnout in Strongsville, OH, in Cuyahoga County, about 12 miles SW of Cleveland (inner-city tribal parasite mecca). Lines of cars about 30 in number, standing room only inside, and traffic backed up about 1/4 mile.

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.)

“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.

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.

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.

Wendy's was a solid Conservative company when Dave Thomas was still alive and running it.

Unfortunately after his death they were sold to Arbys, which I understand is run by Peter Lewis-type Progressives.

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 McD’s and the local KFC had their billboards posting “We agree with Dan Cathy” and “C-F-A Appreciation Day” on them. Amazing that even CFA’s competitors were supporting them.....

"So I will go Friday and Saturday instead."

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.

Thought this was kind of cool, too.
