    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was attacked by a large number of users, including Soledad O’Brien, after he decided to eat at Chick-fil-A during “Pride Month.” He apologized, explaining that he “completely forgot about their background.” After posting a screenshot showing that he had received a discount from Chick-fil-A, Dorsey was immediately attacked by liberal Twitter users. “This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month,” complained Soledad O’Brien, prompting Dorsey to apologize by responding, “You’re right. Completely forgot about their background.”

As has been well documented, the left is hating on Chick-fil-A...again.  No one should be surprised by this, least of all Chick-fil-A.  Back in 2012, Chick-fil-A became a prime target of the left when its then-president and chief operating officer, Dan Cathy – son of founder Truett Cathy and now the chairman and CEO of Chick-fil-A – gave a benign interview to Baptist Press (the Cathys are longtime members of New Hope Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Ga.).

    According to restaurant consultancy firm Technomic, which shared its findings with Buzzfeed News, Chick-fil-A is poised to become the third-largest fast-food chain in the nation by 2020 in terms of sales, trailing behind only McDonald’s and Starbucks. The chicken chain was ranked eighth in a 2017 report from QSR magazine, behind McDonald’s, Starbucks, Subway, Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell and Dunkin’ Donuts. “The trajectory we’re on would support that,” a Chick-fil-A spokesman told Buzzfeed News in response to Technomic’s findings.

    OBB COUNTY, Ga. - A Cobb County woman was indicted Thursday for allegedly claiming to be a federal law enforcement agent to get a discount for her Chick-fil-A meal. Tara Marie Solem, of Marietta, faces two felony counts of impersonating an officer, according to court documents. Police said the incident happened July 5 at the Macland Cross Circle location. She initially tried to convince a worker at the eatery’s drive-through window that that she was a federal agent. It didn’t work, so she went inside. Solem walked up to the counter of the chicken joint, argued with two managers and...

    Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed had a problem. How do you feed thousands of stranded airline passengers at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport with no electricity. It turns out the answer was pretty simple: call Chick-fil-A. Normally Chick-fil-A restaurants are closed on Sundays so employees can attend church and spend time with their families. Click here for America’s fastest-growing, FREE, Conservative newsletter – The Todd Starnes Report! But when the lights went out at the international airport — the mayor needed immediate help in feeding folks with no place to go. So he called Dan Cathy, the chief executive officer of Chick-fil-A.

    Chick-fil-A, an American fast-food chain open for business a meagre six days a week, has retained the crown for most revenue per restaurant in the US, according to the latest report released by QSR magazine. Chick-fil-A raked in revenues of over $4.4 million, more than doubling trendy competitors In-N-Out Burger, Chipotle, and Steak N Shake. It’s next closest competitor is Whataburger, which generated $2.7 million per restaurant, a mere 61 percent of Chick-fil-A’s top line. Chick-fil-A decimated the chicken industry, toppling over direct competitors Zaxby’s ($2.3 million), El Pollo Loco ($1.9 million), Bojangles’ ($1.8 million), Popeyes ($1.4 million), Boston Market...

    Students at Duquesne University are petitioning their school to reconsider a plan to bring Chick-fil-A to campus, arguing the fast-food restaurant’s support for traditional marriage would create an unsafe environment for gay students. . . . Rachel Coury, president of the Duquesne gay-straight alliance, said she fears Chick-fil-A will roll back efforts to create a safe environment for gay students on campus. “I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community,” Ms. Coury told The Duke. “So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A … maybe people will feel that...

    The Tampa Bay Times reported on Thursday that a Democrat is “crying foul over Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark's decision to hold voter registration drives at nine Chick-fil-A locations.” “Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits, supports conservative causes,” the Times reported. […] In Florida, Susan McGrath, leader of the Stonewall Democrats and head of the Pinellas Democratic Party, said the decision to use Chick-fil-A would be similar to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the event at Planned Parenthood, according to the Times. …

    Democrats have been making a dramatic scene in the House this week by staging a “sit-in” with hopes to force a vote on further gun control laws, spurred by Omar Mateen’s attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando. But even politicians get a little hungry when they are busy sitting on the floor, so they decided to call for some delivery—and conservatives will probably get a kick out of what they ordered. TMZ caught interns bringing in a big cart of Chick-fil-A for the famished protesters.

    This Is Why You Didn’t Hear What Chick-fil-A Did in Orlando After the Mass Shooting Right after the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub, there was an outpouring of support from people and businesses in the area and around the country. People came to give blood to victims, and restaurants gave food. One particular business in the food industry – Chick-fil-A – gave away free iced tea and chicken sandwiches to those helping out victims. And they even opened on Sunday to do it. A Chick-fil-A spokesman told the Huffington Post: “While we have a corporate policy that firmly states...

    The left-leaning news media are always Johnny-on-the-Spot to criticize Chick-fil-A because its owners happen to be pro-traditional marriage. But when it opens its heart (and its doors) in the wake of a national tragedy, they suddenly put their blinders on. On Sunday, following the bloody massacre at an Orlando nightclub that caters to gays, several nearby locations of the restaurant chain opened its doors to deliver sandwiches and drinks to police and EMTs at the crime scene, and to those donating blood. In case you think Chick-fil-A was profiting from a tragedy, think again. They accepted no payment for their...

    A few days ago, the Chick-Fil-A restaurant chain came under attack from the hateful and intolerant mayor of the city - Bill DeBlasio. The fact that this chain was founded by and is operated by church-going people who have strong family values and who actually close their restaurants on Sundays evidently irks the mayor to the point that he has made it clear that this restaurant chain is not welcome in "his" city. Evidently it rubs the mayor the wrong way that some executives in this company espouse political and social opinions that are not lock-step with his own views....

    The Rev. Franklin Graham has strongly condemned Mayor Bill de Blasio's call for a boycott of popular fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, which is opening a new location in the New York City borough of Queens, just because its Christian owners believe in the biblical definition of marriage. "Can you imagine a city where a popular, successful business is singled out and attacked by the mayor who calls for a boycott — all because the business owners let it be known that they operate by Christian principles and believe in God's definition of marriage?" Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and Billy...

The popular chicken restaurant is planning to open up a new location in Queens, its fourth to open in New York City.

"This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love. It is outrageous that...
