Today is Chick-fil-A appreciation day, where people around the country are flooding the fried chicken restaurants to show their support for the company’s stance against gay marriage. From the Blaze:
We already told you about Sarah Palin’s tough words for those seeking to ban the restaurant from local communities. Evangelist Billy Graham, too, has weighed in as has former presidential candidate Rick Santorum. And today, hundreds of thousands of Americans are pledging to stand by Chick-fil-A amidst calls for the restaurant to be banished from cities across the nation.
Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and a 2008 presidential candidate, created an event called “Support Chick-fil-A.” After posting the initiative on Facebook, nearly 586,000 people have pledged to show up to make their voices heard in defense of the company’s First Amendment rights.
I hate to dwell on this, but it’s just too damn annoying — that is, that the Left is blowing this up as if it’s some story of corporate hate-mongering.
Chick-fil-A expressed its views on a political issue. Other corporations and organizations (ahem, Starbucks, Whole Foods) are always pushing their liberal agendas. And then one business announces a viewpoint that leans conservative and all hell breaks loose.
If I were the Chick-fil-A president, I’d tell em’ all to go to hell.
