Posted on 08/02/2012 5:06:51 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
Adam Smith, the man who videotaped himself getting free water at a Chick-Fil-A drive-thru just to berate the young woman as been fired.
Smith in his video said he was happy to feel "purposeful" in condemning the Chick-Fil-A employee over CEO Dan Cathy's same-sex-marriage remarks. The video went viral and citizen journalists tracked him down online and grabbed copies of his resume. His employer, Vante, released this statement a bit ago:
Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO
Employee Has Left the Company TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante: Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.

I hope your daughter continues to develop a healthy and realistic world view.
[she should choose better, less liberally influential friends]
This was never about “chicken”, though.
This was about one man’s stand against perverted ‘marriages’.
this was prolly his first real taste of reality, and it was a sh!t sammich!!!
Were that it was so.
My guess, however, is that he will be welcomed with open arms - as a hero/martyr - at most any lgbt/atheist-supporting org...
I've been watching the entire thing since early this morning.
His employers, location and everything else was posted on the social networks.
No one tried to dig up his info, the idiot was PROUD of what he was doing.
Then it went viral. Something like 2000+ negative comments. He couldn't get it deleted fast enough before someone had saved it.
Too bad, so sad.
He did it to himself.
you are very correct. glad the sissybitch got fired, he deserved that. but you got to give credit to the young lady.
She deserves a raise!
I’ll bet he has an employment contract with this company that nails him for his conduct. He figures he is through.
Suspect he is not only toast with his current employer, but with a great many others.
I did not know he was still exhibiting the same tack.
No doubt here.
I said in another thread that I've seen hated executive terminations cause workers to come out of their offices and cubicles singing 'Ding Dong, The Wicked Witch Is Dead' on several occasions and it's the most rewarding thing you can be witness to in the corporate world.
When rgw aspiring young executive hopefuls at Vande learned about what this asshole did at Chick-Fil-A, I bet that even Thorazine injections couldn't have wiped the smiles off their faces. If they replace his position internally, one of them basically just won a brand new BMW.
I bet they're still laughing and recounting the story to each other, mimicing his voice and actions as he was escorted out the door.
I really strive not to relish in other people’s misfortunes, but I am savoring this moment. When this creep was sh__ canned, justice was served.
Lunch time is company time. He wasn’t an hourly worker.
He has a right to his opinion - but opinions are like a$$h0les - everyone has one. Liberals suffer diarrhea.
Who you gonna call? Smith-busters!
Finally, the table turns.
This guy was a certified AH.
Typical brainwashed leftist dweeb!
CFA ought to give the young lady at the window a raise for being calm and not spitting in this AH’s face.
This guy was an officer, and the company has customers, and suppliers, auditors, and other employees.
Putting himself out publicly in such a manner can attract a lot of negative attention, and his superiors decided they dont need the hassle.
He’s probably been harassing normal men and women who don’t share his slutty values at work. It’s called sexual harassment or sexual dominance and it is a central aspect of the gay lifestyle. Liberal sex fascists are vindictive and abusive twerps.
The Left can make him their oppressed queer hero and he’ll get plenty of ego stroking for his “courage” in harassing that young woman at the resturant.
I want to give her a tip for putting up with that louse without cussing or poking his eyes out.
This guy is a classic modern liberal. He is a scold to anyone that doesn’t follow his liberal orthodoxy, but goes a step further to memorialize it on the web. Then he can show the world what a ‘good person’ he is. The guy is a narcissist, just like a certain former soda jerk from Hawaii now living in Washington.
“Such a price he has just paid.”
What he did was pure evil. It was totally contemtable, totally reprehensible. The price he paid is the minimum he should pay.
“What a queer attitude... by Mr. Smith...”
Which one...Shep or Adam?
Come on man he shouldn’t be fired just retrained as a weather man. There he won’t have to give his opinions. Transfer him to MSNBC.
“He’d be a good fit in the Obama administration.”
Ha, that would give him less than a six month moratorium on being fired.
“Sir, Cathy owns Chick-Fil_A and I am damn proud of him for standing up against the fascist left. he can say any damn thing he wants.”
I didn’t know he owned it; I believe his family owns it, since his father started it.
My point was that just like Smith’s company was free to fire him for his conduct of expressing his free speech, so would the officers/directors be free to do the same with Cathey IF the case had been they disagreed with his expression of his free speech. (which obviously they did NOT disagree, nor do you, nor do I)
Gold Baby, Gold!
For someone who wants to get on his fantasy horse and lecture us on hate, he sure has a lot of it. What an a$$hole. Then he tells the girl “he isn’t gay”. Sure. Whatever sissy.
They will be getting a thank you note, you can bet on it.
FR posting guidelines prevent me from saying what I think about that guy.
No way he is NOT gay, IMO, in spite of what he says.
He deserved to lose his job.
I have to say, the lady stayed classy.
1... You know this wasn’t the first time this happened that day. Probably not the last either.
2... It would have been easy to get angry and start shouting, she didn’t. Good training and/or common sense.
3... For every one of these videos, there were probably 20 other unrecorded hatemongers, less inclined to perform, but still inclined to spew.
“The guy is a narcissist”
You nailed him.
I saw a highly qualified executive get fired about one month after he was hired. He was rude with one of the customers, then bragged about it. He was gone as soon as the paper work could get finished.
When people start bragging about how rude then can be, as Mr. Adams did by posting his video, you know it’s only a matter of time when he’s going to do it to you or one of your customers. Firing him was just a wise decision.
Maybe there’s a gay bathhouse in need of a CFO with a sharp tongue?
These leftwing socialists are exposing their deep and vitriolic hatred of God and anything that relates to Him.
From denying God is the source of our rights to C-F-A, they have such a deep hatred that is manifested by these kooks like this savage in AZ.
His father did not start the company; he did.
Thanks for the pic. That picture speaks for itself.
Yep, he is a follower of the Obastard.
I have found I was mistaken. I saw reports using their Middle Name which is in common with both and the Father uses as his preferred name.
It was Dan Truett Cathy, S. Truett Cathy’s son, who made the original comments on traditional marriage.
The grounding foundation of "liberalism".
I have to admit I am glad he got fired but NO ONE (with few exceptions) should be fired for his political or religious beliefs. This IS America after all.
“This “Adam Smith” is a flaming Leftie who really stepped in it with his rudeness & hate.
He no longer has his CFO position. Wonder where he will work next?”
He can go to work for GayCPenney, CNN or MSNBC late night
as a hostile queer faggot faux host, who hates America, Christians and loves the darkside.
The article says it probably won’t change the idiots behavior. I say it will. Discipline is never a one time thing. It takes continuous effort. If this guys never gets disciplined then his action will never change and will only get worse, so at least losing this job and probably having a real tough time finding another might get his attention, but doing nothing certainly won’t.
In most States this guy’s conduct would cross the criminal line into Menacing. He could have been arrested. If the girl in the drive up was under 18 that turns it into a felony in some States.
“Lunch time is company time.”
No, it isn’t. I don’t know where you got that, but it isn’t. Not for enyone.
“NO ONE (with few exceptions) should be fired for his political or religious beliefs. “
He wasn’t fired for his beliefs. He was fired for his conduct.
“...The grounding foundation of “liberalism”....”
Liberalism embraces secular humanism which is the physical manifestation of what took place in Genesis Chapter 3. They have to deny/hate God in order to try to substantiate their existence. It really is a serious form of insanity as we see everyday when one of these clowns opens their pie hole.
Yep, I’ve stated that before -
“liberalism” is simply the political expression of the religion of humanism which began in Genesis 3 when Satan said “you will be as gods”.
Did you notice it said “Interested In: Men”
