Want something banned? Just pretend that it makes you afraid — even if it’s just a chicken sandwich. Political correctness must be the most nauseating form of thuggery ever devised:
Student senators at Duquesne University are lobbying for the cancellation of plans to bring Chick-fil-A to campus in the fall, saying they “fear” for the safety of their peers.
The popular fast-food chain came under fire in 2012 after its president, Dan Cathy, admitted his company was “guilty as charged” for donating to organizations opposed to same-sex marriage, prompting years of protests by LGBT activists, especially on college campuses.
Unlike the campus social justice warriors who demand that it be banned merely for reminding them that not everyone agrees with them regarding the sanctity of marriage, Chick-fil-A is hardly pushy when it comes to politics.
Campus Reform reported in 2015, for instance, that the Student Government Association at Johns Hopkins University demanded the removal of Chick-fil-A from campus, calling its presence a “microaggression,” though outrage slowly died down as IRS filings showed the company had virtually cancelled its donations to organizations opposing same-sex marriage.
However, Alinskyite political strategy dictates that once a target has been picked, it must be frozen, personalized, polarized, and destroyed. A Gay-Straight Alliance crybully cracks her whip:
“I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ community. So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being in Options [an on-campus food court] that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk,” Rachel Coury explained, adding that at the very least her organization would like “someone” to “make a statement” on the issue.
“It would be a really big deal for Lambda [Gay-Straight Alliance] and the whole LGBTQ community on campus if someone could make a statement to eliminate the fear of being marginalized by having this business on campus,” she said.
If Rachel ever wonders what it feels like to really be marginalized rather than holding the whip hand, she might try dropping her militant pervert jihad for a day and walk in the shoes of a Bible-believing Christian on a college campus.
