Rowdy Cluckers: The Chick-fil-A Rebellion
Townhall.com ^ | August 5, 2012 | Doug Giles

Posted on 08/05/2012 5:40:40 AM PDT by Kaslin

Well, the anti-Chick-fil-A thing sort of backfired, now didn’t it? Yep, the rabid gay crowd thought they were going to shut CFA down, but instead their fascist demands that Chick-fil-A’s Presidente Dan Cathy repent of his free speech actually catapulted the fast food chain into record profits. Cha-ching!

I have one word for that homo faux pas of trying to stifle a private company’s free speech, it’s: Ahahaha. Boy, you guys really read the pulse of the American people … Not.

Now, I will give the onerous gay activists this: Aside from the huge boom in ammo sales since Obama was elected, their boycott of Chick-fil-A actually spurred the first definitive economic stimulus of the Obama era. Muchas gracias.

Look, I knew this anti-free speech/chicken sandwich protest was going to go south when frickin’ Rahm Emanuel and Edwin Mah Lee got out in front of it. They represent America about as much as I represent PETA. I kept waiting for Mugatu from Zoolander to pop out and join them by slaughtering live chickens in a Foghorn Leghorn outfit while dancing to “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” in front of some Chippendale boys. But, alas! It didn’t happen. Who can I sue?

If there’s one thing I know about Americans it’s that they love Chick-fil-A and free speech. I guess that would be two things. And Americans peacefully showing up in the hundreds of thousands last Wednesday to Chick-fil-A restaurants from sea to shining sea showed anyone with a lick of sense that Americans are not quite ready to bow and kiss the ring of a special interest group that wants to mitigate other people’s rights to freedom of expression just because they don’t kowtow to theirs.

Which brings me to this query: What’s up with this BS that we’ve got to agree with someone’s view of gay sex before we can buy or sell chicken sandwiches? When did that edict get passed? We’re damn close to making Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi look like the most rosy, easygoing consommé ladler around.

And finally, how come the gay activists got their national dander up over Chick-fil-A’s exec not being down with Brad and Chad getting engaged, yet I haven’t heard them say diddly squat about their intentions to stage a national “Kiss In” at any American mosque or give the hundreds of black pastors who vehemently oppose gay marriage the same crap they’ve been giving Chick-fil-A. What’s the matter? You’re not scared to take them on, are you? You’re not chicken, are you?

I think this past August 1st is a foretaste of what’s coming this November 6th. It’s all about freedom for all, baby, and you dudes don’t get it. But Americans do. And they showed up in droves and waited in hot lines for hours to demonstrate they will not be bullied.

Put a list of these colleges online, or here on FR, as “American Colleges and Universities that condone gay marriage and free speech censorship”.

Any school that stifles free speech and chice is teaching our kids the wrong lesson about America, and life.

“agree with us or you can’t eat”...that’s their ultimate goal...hey, worked for Hitler...

That will be one huge list, including the vast majority (95%+) of all colleges and universities. Back in 1989, free speech and open dialog on things like homosexuality were off-limits at SUNY @ Stony Brook. People were routinely punished for perceived harassment of homosexuals. In a single semester, 3 suites in my dorm were "broken up," and in once case, all the students kicked off-campus due to anonymous complaints of "harassment."

...the gay community is working overtime to damage CFA. This hit the media last Wednesday and by Monday of this week 33 college campus locations have called to close their CFA stores. As of this morning the number is up to 40. Two universities will literally be closing by tomorrow. Three critical ones are Penn. State, University of Louisville, and St Louis University...

So much for 'diversity' tolerance and empathy. Guess liberal bigots only have that for themselves...and their pet victim groups.

And PENN STATE?

Penn State doesn't want a Chick-fil-A? What? Are they pissed off there's no rape room in the back of Chick-fil-A stores? No 'showers' for young boys...no showers for boys from broken homes at Chick-fil-A? Why are these pedophile apologists allowed to have a football team?

If the Washington Post and New York Times weren't biased and creepy, they would see this as economic prejudice based on 'creed'. Then again, liberal newsrooms probably stand with their liberal friends at Penn State...

It won’t just be colleges, but malls, airports, and any where they are not stand alone businesses.

Hobby Lobby will be next as they are Christian based, closed on Sunday’s, and play Christian gospel music in their stores. Their CEO may keep his mouth shut, but they will still go after them just for the Gospel music and being closed on Sunday’s. It might insult some pervert.

“It might insult some pervert....”

Not to mention the haters of Christianity who will hide behind anyone or anything for the pleasure of indulging in their obnoxious, cowardly attacks.

IMHO

The problem is that too many, but especially young people, equate opposition to homosexual marriage with HATE...
It's true. Our society has fallen so far (in my opinion because of 40 years of abortion, the ultimate "HATE"), that young folk have no idea what's Truly right or wrong these days. If they sat back and thought about the relations homosexuals have with one another (the physical part), it should disgust them, but does it? Here's a link I thought was good as it states clearly why homosexuality is bad for your health all around. The health risks of gay sex.

Penn State is Homo-Pedo U!

Probably don’t have many normal students there anyway.

The Left and their perv supporters were nationally bitch slapped twice in the same week and it was a thing of beauty to witness and will forever be a joy to recall their epic failures.

Well said!
