It’s a dangerous world out there. Operating heavy machinery while having a buzz on can lead to funny youtube vidoes, so can douchebags operating video cameras.
Yesterday was Chick Fil A Appreciation Day (sadly, I was MIA, still keeping my record of never eating there intact). And although I think the crowd came down 90% in support of free speech, and 10% thinking they are some civil rights champion on a mission, some in the latter category donned their super hero suit and went on crusade, one case in point.
A leopard can’t change his spots, and the critically impaired critical thinkers go on parade exposing their already exposed shortcomings:
Libs don’t really care about the environment- Notice all the fossil fuels he is willing to burn, not to mention the Styrofoam cup and the wasted water, all to prove a point, would not his point be equally vapid with a bit more care as to the environmental needs of mother earth?
Libs are bullies- Not willing to pick on some one his own size, or someone that actually stood for something like a corporate lacky or store manager, he goes after the lowest rung on the ladder, a minimum wage female employee who is clearly uncomfortable with the encounter yet manages to show 10 times more class and decorum then the libtard with the camera.
Libs are stoners- how else can you explain the delusion he talks himself into, where he sees a group of people a block away, yet somehow convinces himself that they and he are simpatico on this issue and are as he speaks in preparation of a sit in to bolster his efforts of exposing bigotry?
Libs have an entirely unrealistic opinion of themselves- hence the major production and build up, but no pay out in the end, nor did not expose anything or get some confession, he berates a fast food employee and is proud of it, nice job.
And finally, libs are all talk but no real conviction. They keep telling us they are the party of free speech and tolerance, yet time and time again, they woefully come up short of putting it into practice. Trapped in their own box of hate, they can’t demonstrate any civility or respect of opinions different from their own. The lock step can countenance one set of values, and stepping outside that narrow parameter, anything else must by definition be hate inspired. So we are left with a group of closed brains who can’t understand the simple concept that a defense of traditional marriage does not in of itself constitute a hatred of gays or even an anti gay agenda.
And this intolerance to those of different opinions can seem alien, even off setting to some:
“The level of hatred, unfounded fear and misinformed people was astoundingly sad. I can’t even print some of the things people said.”
Yes, it was so sad and hatred filled that he could not provide one single example ( even a lie, something that didn’t happen would at least provide some substantiation, even anecdotal), but saying so fits better into the narrative of his readers.
I mentioned before, from a purely business perspective, venturing into this swamp was not very business savvy. If your goal is to increase business (build more restaurants, sell more chicken sandwiches, serve more customers and thus make more money) then anything said that excludes any segment of those potential customers is counter productive to that goal. I think he has done the proper damage control by adding:
“In recent weeks, we have been accused of being anti-gay,” Cathy said in a written statement. “We have no agenda against anyone. While my family and I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, we love and respect anyone who disagrees.”
But that respect is not mutual, and only flows one way.
None of this controversy has motivated me to make an appearance at one of their restaurants, nor would it spark any action if I was of the other persuasion, but people don’t like bullies and they certainly don’t like elected officials telling them what their values should be. The final arbiter on the matter will be dollars, those spent at the restaurants or those withheld and spent someplace else, but let the people decide.
