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

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

Leftist University Rids Itself of the Scourge of Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A is now the third largest chain restaurant in the nation, behind only McDonald’s at number one and Starbucks in second. It successfully unseated Subway recently, bumping the sub-shop chain to number four. It has seen a meteoric rise as of late. In 2017, Chick-fil-A was ranked a mere 7th, behind Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s . But the quality of its product and superior staff has pole-vaulted it passed the aforementioned giants.

And its done all this despite constant attacks by the loony left, claiming that the restaurant chain supports “anti-LGBT” causes. These attacks are particularly prevalent on … you guessed it … college campuses.

Try as They may – You Still Can’t Beat Chick-fil-A

from the College Fix:

Blocked from some schools, Chick-fil-A still thrives on campuses across the country

In spite of negative press and the efforts of several schools working to keep the popular restaurant off their campuses in recent years, Chick-fil-A remains a steady presence at hundreds of schools across the country.

Particularly since 2012, when the company’s president, Dan Cathy, voiced support for “the biblical definition of the family unit,” the school has come under fire from LGBT activists and other progressive groups. Last June, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was slammed for simply eating at Chick-fil-A. LGBT organizations have accused Chick-fil-A of donating money to “hate groups.” Last April, The New Yorker covered the restaurant’s expansion with an article titled “Chick-fil-A”s Creepy Infiltration of New York City,” with the author unfavorably noting the chain’s “pervasive Christian traditionalism.” read more

Leftist Politics Clash with the Fitness of the Children

Liberals are supposed to be all about the children and children’s health. We’re constantly bombarded with ads telling us to get the kids out of the house and get some exercise – run around.

The NFL sponsors a Play60 program, where they encourage children of all ages to get out play football and other physical activities. They even have a program called Fuel Up to Play 60, where they partner with schools.

According to cdc.gov/healthyschools:

“Physical activity is vital for a child’s development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life. … helping to achieve and maintain a healthy weight… building strong bones and muscles… improving cardiovascular fitness. Children and adolescents should have 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of physical activity daily. Aerobic: Most of the 60 or more minutes a day should be either moderate- or vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity and should include vigorous-intensity physical activity at least 3 days a week.”

School districts across the country understand the importance of physical fitness, for the betterment of the children.

That is until their leftist politics clash with the interests of “the children.” read more

Chick-fil-A Becomes Birthing Center

from the Blaze:

Mom of ‘conservative, Christian family’ gives birth at Chick-fil-A; baby gets free chicken for life

A Texas woman gave birth in a San Antonio, Texas, Chick-fil-A bathroom on Tuesday night — and her husband was the one who delivered the baby.

What’s the background on this?

Robert Griffin shared a Wednesday Facebook post announcing his wife’s birth. The post has since gone viral, with over 100,000 likes and over 82,000 shares.

In the post, Robert recalled his wife, Falon’s birth plan, and how it went awry when she suddenly went into labor on Tuesday evening.

The Griffins drove to a nearby Chick-fil-A to drop off the rest of the family with friends who were meeting them there, so that Robert and Falon could head to the hospital alone. read more

A Chick-fil-A Lesson in Free Market Capitalism

Just another reason to love Chick-fil-A

from Conservative Review:

Leave it to Chick-fil-A to show you don’t need government for a ‘living wage’

Whenever the Left wants to have a conversation about a “living wage,” it’s almost never a discussion, but a series of demands and slogans made in ALL CAPS on Twitter. Those demands almost always involve the heavy hand of government coercing businesses with the force of law. But one of the Left’s favorite businesses to hate, Chick-fil-A, is showing that entrepreneurs in a competitive free market can improve conditions for workers without paternalistic government oversight. read more

NYC Leftists Attack Chick-fil-A

from CNS News:

Irrational Christophobes Attack Chick-fil-A

It is the fastest growing phobia in the nation. Christophobia. To be sure, the fear of Christians is not overcoming America, but it has unquestionably overcome a large swath of non-believers, or those who profess no religious belief. Within this segment of the population, there are the indifferent at one end, and the haters at the other end.

If there is any doubt that the haters are growing, consider the overheated reaction by the New Yorker to a company that sells chicken sandwiches. Journalist Dan Piepenbring accuses Chick-fil-A of “carpet bombing” New York City. What did it do to merit such an accusation? It opened its fourth store in the Big Apple. read more

Podcast – Hillary’s Economic Platform – The Next Ice Age & Johns Hopkins vs. Chick-fil-A

Today I discuss Hillary Clinton’s grand economic vision for the country as she reveals her platform on Monday. Oh it is as good (or bad) as one can imagine. Is the world staring down the barrel of the next mini Ice Age? Scientists have discovered, through new studies of solar activity, we’re less than a decade away. Bring on the warming! And the student government at Johns Hopkins University wants to kick Chick-fil-A off campus. read more

LGBT Has Issues With Chick-fil-A

It had been a week of awareness-raising at a Pennsylvania high school — teen suicide, disabilities and other issues were marked by students wearing specifically colored T-shirts each day in recognition of each issue.

On the final day last Friday, Bangor Area High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance — which organized the weeklong project — encouraged students to wear rainbow-colored T-shirts to draw attention to LGBT issues.

But during televised morning announcements at the school, two of the students seen onscreen wore Chick-fil-A shirts instead, senior Erin Snyder told the Morning Call.

And then the backlash began. read more
