While instances of outrage and support continue to rage for the fast food restaurant chain Chick-fil-A, Amtrak is also capturing some attention for its Ride With Pride initiative, a new campaign aimed at gay customers. While homosexual rights groups are already praising the targeted efforts, some conservatives will likely express disdain and concern, seeing as the company is tax-payer funded and clearly taking a stance on the issue.
To fully push the efforts, special ads that show same-sex couples riding the train system have been released by Amtrak, as has a gay-friendly web-site encouraging individuals to head to popular vacation destinations. So far, two ads have been released one showcasing two mothers and the other featuring two fathers (each featuring a child).

Do they ride in the caboose?
So Johnny, do you like gladiator movies?
Ever seen a grown man naked?
Kid riding with Grandma is a little big for her lap?
This is a double-edge sword. Yeah, it’s sickening to see this gay rubbish forced on us on, what seems like, a daily basis.
But...the more of this garbage the American public sees, the bigger the backlash against the Dems in November.
Slippery seats and funky smells are sure to attract business...
Forced to do this by Obamugabe, no doubt.
When will there be an advertising campaign focused on Christ Followers?
They’d rather “switch” than fight!!! (ya hafta be purdy old ta remember that one)
Who is so stupid as to advertise to a tiny base of people? Many of whom want nothing to do with all this attention.
Mind you this is the same Amtrak which has been losing $1.70 on every nine dollar cheeseburger they’ve been selling for the last decade.
"Go ask your Father."
Is this real or satire?
more brainwashing...we need a tax revolt.
IOW child kidnappers will use amtrack because, “they look normal” there.
The picture on the left with the two women could be two sisters. It is the one on the right which is clearly deviants with minor.
And a snafu at that site a few years ago:
It’s a sign of the times that the only thing a man is allowed to be proud of anymore is taking it in the keyster from another man.
Norm MacDonald nailed it years ago. I’m not posting the link, but it aint hard to find.
If they’re going to pander to minority groups on the taxpayer dime, why not, “Clickety-Clack ‘N Black”?
Maybe “Latino LOCOmotive”?
How ‘bout, “Chicano Choo Choo”?
There’s gotta be a regulation somewhere against this.
Good reason to de-fund them, if the deficit wasn’t reason enough already. They are too incompetent to be spending public money.
And 40 cents on every $2.00 soft drink. Ordinary asleep at the switch management can't screw things up that badly. It takes a real determined criminal enterprise.
Other than Mrs. Vigilanteman taking a frying pan to my head.
RIDE WITH PRIDE AND GET FREE ASTRO-GLIDE!............
We need more than that. I went to the site. It actually provides links to leftist political editorial sites. Remember, Amtrak is a Gov't owned and operated railroad.
Much of our Gov't bureaucracy no longer even pretends to be politically neutral. They are in open opposition to Conservatives.
Daddy, why does this tunnel smell so bad?
freepmail me..now you got me wondering.
The picture on the right makes you wonder just who they think they’re fooling. What kind of trickery are they trying now?
This isn't being done to get more riders for AMTRAK. It's being done to: 1. score leftwing brownie points and 2. to funnel $$$ to connected advertising agencies and media outlets (who will then make handsome donations to Obama's reelection campaign).
