They should thank Mama Grifter too. Maybe the bulk of the credit belongs to Mama Grifter, actually. The throngs heading to Chick-Fil-A yesterday definitely look like a lot of Mama Grifter’s most devoted fans.
Pretty stark contrast, isn’t it? Between those of us who are sick to death of the bigotry and who now refuse to eat at Chick-Fil-A, and those who are goose-stepping up to support them?
American neo-Nazis and some top black conservatives have found rare common ground — over Chick-fil-A’s stand against gay marriage.
The two sides rallied around “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” during which patrons — and protesters — swarmed restaurants Wednesday in response to the company’s support for “the Biblical definition of the family unit.”
Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s recent comments have sparked a new front in the culture war over gay marriage, and led Democratic mayors Rahm Emanuel of Chicago and Tom Menino of Boston to declare that the company is not welcome in their cities.
In response, ex-Arkansas Governor and 2008 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, now a Fox News host, called on viewers to eat at one of the fast-food joints Wednesday to show support.
One member of the skinhead Internet forum Crew38 was already there, according to the SITE Monitoring service, which tracks extremists online.
“I had Chick-fil-A today for lunch and it was delicious and non-gay … just how I like it,” one member wrote.
And NEVER kosher. Just what the Doctor (Goebbels) ordered for millions of racists, homophobes, and assorted haters.
I hope Mr. Cathy enjoys having his new clientele. Is there a better way to represent how “family oriented” you are than to have a dining room full of guys in shaved heads, jackboots and swastika armbands?
