Just as predicted. Media hype. They "flooded" CFAs and "countered Huckabees Wed. event". Hardly. Pics at the link are silly and predictable too.

Close-up shots so you can’t see how few people there are.

“Flooded”?? That’s not even enough to be a full plugged toilet.

HAHAH pathetic! All the pictures are cropped so as to not show how small these “protests” groups were...... Compare to the massive lines out the door and cars wrapped around the building on Wed!!!

Yes, it was a non event. But as predicted they spin it and hype it up. Really a big yawn.

Of course, Wed. was a natural upswelling, an almost historic event. This was a blip, a flash in the pan. They’re not fooling anyone. I really have come to loathe them in a way I didn’t before.

The Chick-Fil-A nearest me was BUSY at 2pm with people EATING. Didn't see ANYBODY kissing.

Me thinks if there was any "flooding", it was because Serge called all his faaaahbUUloth freindth to meet and greet him at a central CFA. Then Serge called his "partner" Rex, who works at the local TV station (as a hair and makeup "person"), to get Rex's coworker/journalist over to cover the "story".

I think Chrissy Matthews had a tingle go down his leg.

My wife took the kids up to the Burlington, MA Chick-Fil-A for lunch today. She said they arrived after normal lunch hours, there were no protesters and there were a good number of non-busy hour customers.

As few kissers as there might have been, Chick Fil A’s gross receipts probably went up ANOTHER 10% for the week.
The opposition is SO stupid, they just don’t see that they are FREE ADVERTISING for Chick Fil A.

I went to the Chick-fil-A in Cumming, GA for lunch. Same thing. Plenty of customers, none of them kissing each other.

Close-up shots so you can’t see how few people there are.Look at the background of the photos taken in front of the stores. It looks like the "joint is jumpin'" in those pictures. Possibly carry over from Wednesday? Maybe protesting the protestors?

The “flooding” was probably the organizers, seeing how poor the turnout was going to be, singled out one CFA for them ALL to “protest”

Then called the pandering media to the chosen location

This backfired like hell lol........creeps

Dumb. Yeah, also when they are saying they want to be married, they are really saying they want to participate in a male-female relationship which is legally open to every man and women. Though of course, they want a marriage or a male-female relationship that is gay, which means they want happy and carefree male-female relationship. The definition of marriage for millenniums has been that of a male-female relationship. Anything else is not marriage and deserves a name of its own.

At least most of the comments at the site are spot on, and ridicule the “kiss-in”.

An excellent example of empirical evidence.

On the one hand you have CFA being able to show that their sales for the day of the "eat in" were record breaking.

On the other hand you have...a few pictures and hype.

On Wednesday, it took FOREVER to get trough the line at Chic Fil A. Without the police officer directing traffic on the highway, there would have been chaos.

Today, the place is desolate. I saw a couple of old people go in, but that's about all.

The homo orgy and bath house appreciation day was a flop.

( Why bother reporting on it at all? More people, no doubt, showed up at McDonalds for the Mushroom snap wrap today during the lunch rush! Why aren't they reporting on that? It's more news worthy, because more people would care.)

I don't live in the Metroplex, but my local news covers Dallas.

The only location covered was one..and there was only a handful of protesters.

I read that the “kiss-in” was supposed to start at 6:00 pm. Yeah, sure, right. That maybe supper time, but it's also the hottest part of the day. I can't wait for the 10:00 news. I predict a colossal flop.

Conversely, the “buycott” folks stood out in the heat nearly all day to make a statement (or drove thru risking car over heating.)

Fox found about 30. I think that was the biggest group so far.

Like I said. There was no protest. It was just another homosexual street orgy.

Going in a restaurant to kiss and make out in front of other people is stupid. Just what is that really going to do for their cause?

We bought chicken sandwiches from the establishment — which will TRULY advance our cause.

Leftists are always illogical.

Well, pilgrim...

Okay the media came up with what one? two? a handful of CFA outlets where there was a “kiss-in”.. There are what, 1600 CFAs through out the nation? And how many were swamped Wednesday?

Unfortunately for the liberal/progressive/socialist/dimocrat/gay cabal the last 72 hours have shown their actual strength (weakness?) not the ‘strength” that they have always claimed.

While this may not be Lexington Green it most certainly was a major event in the modern battle for the Republic's survival.

A few protestors at a few locations for a quick photo shoot and then high tail it out of thereout of hundreds
Out of hundreds of CFAs nationwide, at just a few locations, a few token protestors pose for a quick photo shoot, and then high tail it out of there.
But what’s with Romney’s on this??? Only to be expected. I was just saying at hotair:
We should stand together against Romney’s nonchalance on this, or a lot of freerepublic types, and many hotairers as well, are simply going to bolt, and this will sink the Republican campaign.

They are going to reason that the non-conservative sterile staid stodgy compassionate neutered defanged Romney is not going to help the conservative cause, and we best not let it in to the white house in 2013. Romney has gone potentially a bridge too far against conservatives. He needs to walk this back, correct a mis-statement, immediately; say he didn’t quite understand the import of the question. Or maybe it wasn’t a mis-statement…

Same thing in Cedar Park, Tx. I wanted to stop and grab lunch there while running an errand, but the line was out the door, drive thru was around the building and not one queer protester in sight. I was pressed for time, so I came home and had a bite. Of course, that is Williamson county.

The slogan for Same Sex Kiss Day was "Kiss More Chiks," with a picture of two women kissing - a play on the Chick-fil-A slogan "Eat Mor Chikin," which is usually delivered on misspelled placards by protesting cows.

How appropriate.

Stopped in at my local CFA a little bit after 11 AM. No protesters in sight. Drive through was VERY busy. I went inside and it wasn’t quite as busy as the drive through, but business was good. Cheerful young man took my order, they called out my name when it was ready and it was oh so tasty!

Today’s Oxnard CFA lunch report: Parking was a pain, lines out the door, one (local) TV camera and reporterette and nary a butt dart afficianado or carpet muncher to be seen. Store manager asked everyone in line (while handing out coupons) if they had been to CFA before. At least half including your truly were first timers. Spicy chicken deluxe....mmmmmmmmmm!!!!

Went to two of them today, Bluffton SC and Savannah GA (Mall). No kissing queers ... but darned large crowds. I thought the “appreciation” day was over ... what’s this? Maybe those folks liked the Chicken on Wednesday and came back for more? (I did, for breakfast and for lunch).

“Romney has gone potentially a bridge too far against conservatives. He needs to walk this back, correct a mis-statement, immediately; say he didn’t quite understand the import of the question.”

Yes. Indeed, he should. And the sooner the better. He is the wrong candidate to be running against Obama in 2012. Something more profound and passionate was needed at so historic and somber a juncture.

Yes, it goes back to all that silly ACT UP stuff - it is all out of synch with the moment. Really inferior showing by the gays, in every way. They have no class, and Wednesday had something natural and robust about it that today was sorely lacking in. They really look like they’re meant to fade now from the cultural landscape.
