After Dan Cathy, president of the famous Chick-fil-A fastfood chain, came out and supported traditional marriage, all of a sudden, he was made public enemy number one in at least three cities that are known for corrupt liberal governments: Chicago (which has a Chick-fil-A, but is threatening to block a new one), Boston (which is threatening to ban them), and now San Francisco (the closest restaurant is approximately 40 miles away).
Boston’s Mayor, Democrat Thomas Menino (who vowed to serve only two terms, but is currently in his fifth) said he wishes he can ban the chain, and even went as far as to say they were not welcome in the city.
The owners of the restaurant in Chicago wish to open a new, but city Democratic Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno (who was appointed to Ward-1, not elected) decided that because the owners of Chick-fil-A believe differently these fine job creators (it’s true, the owners of the Chicago franchise have created 97 jobs) that they cannot. Mayor Rahm Emanuel decided to join the fray and sided with the appointed/not elected alderman.
It’s starting to seem that cable channel Starz hit show Boss (starring Kelsey Grammer as a corrupt and mentally ill Chicago mayor), is more like a reality TV series than a fictional show.
San Francisco Mayor Democrat Edwin E. Lee (also appointed, not elected) threatened the fastfood chain when he tweeted this:
“Very disappointed #ChickFilA doesn’t share San Francisco’s values & strong commitment to equality for everyone,” followed by: “Closest #ChickFilA to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer.”
Here are some commonalities to these politicians. Three of them are mayors known for their corrupt ties and their thug tactics. Two of them were not even elected to their offices. All are Democrats. All cities have high crime rates. What else is new? You would think they focus on policing crime instead of policing a legitimate business.
By attacking Chick-fil-A, they are showing their ignorance and the ignorance of the left. Chick-fil-A’s rent out their franchise name to prospective owners, but other than that, they are very independent of their corporate name. In fact, the job-creating owners in Chicago have given to organizations that wish to redefine marriage.
Even some of their lap dogs of the Liberals are defending Chick-fil-A to some extent. Left-wing organizations like the ACLU, Salon.com, as well as professors from liberal universities actually take a stand for First Amendment rights instead of trying to stifle them for a change.
Yes, you heard me right.
Former Governors Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) and Mike Huckabee (R-Arkansas, and host of the FoxNews show Huckabee), have led the charge to defend Chick-fil-A. They are calling on Americans to go to Chick-fil-A’s on August 1st to show your support for them and for other businesses out there.
I promise you, it will not stop here. We have to defend Chick-fil-A because even a Liberal knows if they attack one organization for their beliefs, they could come after you next.
