Chick-fil-A Lurches Further Left

Well, I wrote about Chick-fil-A a few days, and it just got worse. As I stated, this is what happens when the kids take over a company their Father built in his image. And this case, an image of family and Christian values. Oh the horror! I couldn’t be more disappointed in CEO Dan Cathy and the recently acquired wayward vision of his father’s restaurant chain. And to give a nickel to the Southern Poverty Law Center is 5 cents too many.

from the Daily Signal:

Chick-Fil-A Donated to Southern Poverty Law Center, Others on Left

Chick-fil-A, which has promoted itself as a Christian business, is now under fire from both sides of the aisle for its charitable giving strategy. Pictured: Demonstrators protest outside a Chick-fil-A restaurant in California on Aug. 1, 2012. (Photo: Tibrina Hobson/Getty Images)

 

Chick-fil-A donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center and other left-wing organizations that promote abortion and LGBT rights, issues that run counter to the fast-food chain’s image as a Christian conservative business.

According to public tax documents first reported Tuesday by Townhall, Chick-fil-A donated $2,500 to the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2017 despite the organization’s history of hostility toward conservative causes.

Chick-fil-A’s Error in Judgment

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The old saying used to be: “You are what you eat.” Now it’s, “You are what you serve – Chicken.”

Anyway you slice it, Chick-fil-A “chickened” out. Despite all the support we have given them, they just caved to the cancel culture, identity politics mob, which is a tiny fraction of actual people, compared to those have stood up and bravely supported Chick-fil-A for its courage.

Bisnow reported that Chick-fil-A will no longer be giving to Christian charities – those who don’t happen to tow the LGBT line. Oh the horror!

I’ve seen a few conservatives write that they have not in fact caved to the “shut-um-down” mob, but in my opinion they have, and it’s a damn shame, and completely unnecessary.

What has happened to the restaurant chain since the original dustup over Chick-fil-A president, S Truett Cathy’s pronouncement of his PERSONAL Christian view? Did the brand suffer? Not hardly. They went from a distant 7th largest fast food chain, passing over many heavy-hitters, to vault into third place, behind only behemoths, McDonalds and Starbucks. And that’s being open only six days out of the week. They’re closed on Sunday. What religious zealots – right? read more

Video Podcast – California’s LGBT Agenda – Virginia Gun Confiscation

by: Brent Smith

California’s LGBT Agenda

California lawmakers passed a resolution this month telling “religious groups” — including Christian pastors and churches — to “embrace” the LGBTQ worldview, even if it contradicts the moral values of those religious groups.

Acceptance and tolerance are no longer enough. And so-called conversion therapy should not be allowed. So say the leftists who run California.

Virginia to be pushing for Gun Confiscation

Now that voters have seen fit to turn Virginia blue, the Governor and legislature is wasting no time reintroducing 8 anti-guns bills. Among them will be to confiscate assault weapons (to start) and the infamous Red Flag law.

Congratulations Virginia – you get what you deserve. read more

Audio Article – Beto’s Gun Grab – Hawaii Coach Stands His Ground – Bike Lanes

Honesty About Gun Confiscation

Joy-less Behar of the View lamented that Beto O’Rourke was too honest about his want to take everyone’s guns away. She said, “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take them away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”

I discuss her and all democrat’s dishonesty.

Podcast – More College Censorship – Trangendering is Child Abuse

by: Brent Smith

More College Censorship
Censorship is alive and well on college campuses. So says the College fix, and anyone with eyes can see they’re right.

This time a conservative group had their Halloween display taken down after only being up for several hours last week. Of course no one knows anything about, but the Young Americans for Freedom club vows to get to the bottom of it.

By the way – they’re display were gravestones with the words “Socialism Kills” on them.

Trangendering is Child Abuse
Most have heard of the tragic story of the 7 year old Texas boy whose mother wants to change into a girl. And worse is a jury, in Texas no less, said that would fine.

Luckily a Judge overturned the jury and put a stay on the case, giving rights back to both parents. The father objects. What a Puritan – right.

Simply put, this mother should be locked up for child abuse. read more

$2.4 Million Wasted on a Public School Bathroom

What’s the one thing that all public school systems have in common? That’s right – they’re always crying poverty. no matter how much money we taxpayers spend on public education, it’s just never enough. Unfortunately, most times the money is not spent educating our kids. It’s wasted on palatial buildings and politically correct nonsense that won’t help the children learn a thing.

Yet we still keep electing the same idiots to run our public schools and flush the taxpayer’s money down the drain.

So, in a way, we only have ourselves to blame – both for electing them and allowing them to possibly permanently damage our kids.

Case in point from the Blaze:

A Pennsylvania school district is set to drop a hefty sum on a brand-new gender-neutral changing facility for students, according WTXF-TV.

The station reported that Garden Spot High School in New Holland will eliminate traditional boys and girls locker rooms with the $2.4 million project. Renovations are expected to be completed by December 2020. read more

LGBTQ Agenda will be Forced on Illinois Children

Identity Politics Gone Wild! So what if reading, writing and arithmetic suffer. As long as our children know some figure from history was gay or dressed up like a woman. After all – what’s more important?

from Conservative Review:

American History: LGBTQ Edition

A new Illinois law requires Illinois schools to teach kids of all ages about the contributions of the LGBTQ community, the Chicago Tribune reported last month. Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker signed the Inclusive Curriculum Law August 9; it mandates that public schools teach students as early as possible about contributions lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people have made to U.S. state and national history. The details about why it passed and who passed it demonstrate just how much the LGBTQ lobby is targeting children to focus on a specific ideology, excluding others — with taxpayer dollars.

What the Illinois law mandates

While the bill passed handily in both the Illinois state House and Senate (60-42 and 37-17, respectively), its sponsors left it purposely vague. The Inclusive Curriculum Law simply says the teaching of U.S. and Illinois history in public schools “shall include a study of the roles and contributions of” LGBTQ people without specifying just how this should be done. read more

A Transgender Who Isn’t Chronically Offended

From Walter E. Willams for TownHall:

Youth and Ignorance

Camille Paglia

Camille Paglia is a professor of humanities and media studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she has been a faculty member since 1984. Paglia describes herself as transgender, but unlike so many other transgender people, she is pro-capitalism and hostile to those who’d restrict free speech. She’s a libertarian. As to modern ideas that include “gender-inclusive pronouns” such as zie, sie and zim, Paglia says it is lunacy.

An LGBT Bank?

Sounds ridiculous, but frankly is it anymore absurd than any other leftist “Identity Politics” initiative.

from Daily Political Newswire:

Michigan Approves America’s First ‘Gay Credit Union’

Welcome to America, where sexual orientation now apparently affects your financial status.

On Monday, Michigan became the first state to approve a charter to create a credit union for LGBT customers.  It is set to begin early next year.

Superbia Credit Union is set to offer services for the LGBT community that they claim is outside of the norm when it comes to traditional banks. For example, Superbia Services Inc. founder Myles Meyers said they will be offering loans for transgender people who are in the process of transitioning.

“As the world’s only LGBTQ profit-for-purpose provider, Superbia is here to force the needed systemic change in banking, insurance and healthcare and install a new paradigm in funding LGBTQ social equality,” Meyers wrote on LinkedIn.

“I can walk into a bank or credit union and apply for a loan or credit card or savings accounts and frankly, no problem,” he added, “If I walked in to the same institution with my husband, we can come across different responses and welcome. And this is where it all starts to change for the community.”

Bloomberg reports:

But it’s still legal to discriminate against LGBT consumers in most U.S. states, and research shows that gay couples face hurdles in banking regardless of geography. Same-sex couples are less likely to be approved for a loan, for example, and when they are, they pay more for the financing.
