LGBT Bullies Shut Down First UK Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A ranks number 1 in customer satisfaction among fast food chains in the USA. However, its attempt to expand into the UK has been unsuccessful, due to the rigid intolerance of LGBT bullies who hate the company for being owned by Christians.

Via the BBC:

Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October.

A spokeswoman for the centre said “the right thing to do” was to not extend the restaurant’s lease beyond the “six-month pilot period”.

Here is the political sin that makes it intolerable that people should be allowed to eat the tasty sandwiches at Chick-fil-A:

According to [ultra-left] US news website Think Progress, in 2017 the Chick-fil-A Foundation donated millions of dollars to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Paul Anderson Youth Home and the US Salvation Army.

Campaigners from LGBT organisation, Reading Pride, said all three organisations have a reputation of being hostile to LGBT rights.

“Hostile to LGBT rights” means “not on board with the radical LGBT agenda.”

We have reached the point where donating to the Salvation Army can get a restaurant shut down.

In a statement, the UK Salvation Army said it “strongly objected to being presented as homophobic or transphobic”, adding that it had LGBT+ members and served people “without discrimination”.

Not good enough. Chick-fil-A doesn’t discriminate either. The Salvation Army is at least nominally Christian. Therefore, it is politically unclean and must be crushed in the name of “tolerance.”

Tolerant Liberals Welcome Chick-fil-A to Toronto

Militant homosexuals are so desperate to find some oppression that they can use as leverage to acquire more power over the rest of us that they continue to wage a theatrical war against Chick-fil-A, on the sparse grounds that the ownership is Christian and therefore does not sufficiently revere people who wallow in sin and perversion. The first Chick-fil-A just opened in Toronto, but even after padding their ranks with animal rights kooks, LGBT Jacobins could not outnumber the hungry customers.

CTV News reports:

Let’s hope the Toronto Jesus in the City parade went well today and did not come under physical assault by tolerant liberals.

LGBT Mob Vandalizes Chick-fil-A

Liberals demand that society cater obsessively to the sexually freakish. This is because Cultural Marxism is about exploiting alienated groups and deploying them against the cultural core. LGBT militants, infamous for their shamelessness and vicious vindictiveness, make excellent shock troops in the war against Christianity. For example:

A Chick-fil-A in Manhattan was vandalized during a gay pride parade on Sunday, as an LGBT terror mob wanted to send a statement to Christians nationwide.

Progressives hate Chick-fil-A despite its tasty sandwiches because the owners are Christians.

The mob put “F**k haters” on the windows alongside a red “X” targeting the Christian-friendly restaurant chain. In an ironic twist, the mob also put up a sign claiming “LOVE is a terrible thing to waste” as they committed their senseless acts of violence.

This is not so ironic when you consider that moonbats speak Orwellian. The people they call “haters” are the people they hate. In their language, “love” usually means “sexual depravity,” but it also can mean “hate,” as Marianne Williamson comically reminded us during the Democrat debates.

Sunday was blessedly the last day of Gay “Pride” Month. However, for moonbats, every month is Hate Decency Month, so we won’t have to wait for next June to see more sociopathic bullying.

Jack Dorsey Is Remorseful for Eating at Chick-fil-A

To get an idea of how comically intolerant progressives tend to be, consider that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey — a confirmed moonbat who has expressed enthusiasm for the fantasy of Democrats crushing their opposition in a second civil war — is getting castigated for eating at Chick-fil-A.

Former CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien was among those who have denounced Dorsey for this violation of political correctness. She emphasized the compound crime of eating the forbidden food during homosexual “pride” month.

Why does eating tasty chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A make you a bad person?

At issue was Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s 2012 support for defining marriage as between a man and a woman, which he described as “the biblical definition of a family.”

Barack Obama himself — the Moonbat Messiah — did not support the blasphemous concept of homosexual marriage until that same year.

Throughout human history, it is unlikely that more than one person in a million did not regard marriage as something that can only take place between men and women. But as progressives learned from using 1984 as an instruction manual, those who control the past control the future. That’s why liberals are constantly purging the past of thought criminals — selectively, of course; Obama is safe from purges.

That the people running Chick-fil-A no doubt still believe in the sanctity of marriage places the company beyond the pale, so that it can serve as a rallying point for liberal hatred and intolerance.

Citing the importance of diverse opinion, Dorsey boldly stood up to the social media lynch mob. Just kidding, of course. Here’s how he reacted:

“You’re right,” Dorsey conceded. “Completely forgot about their background.”

He had better grovel for forgiveness. After Obama’s weaponized IRS leaked the information that Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich had privately donated money to an organization defending marriage, Eich was fired.

Try to imagine losing your job because you privately donated money to an organization that promotes sexual perversion.

The New Yorker Denounces “Creepy Infiltration” of Chick-fil-A into NYC

Christian-owned Chick-fil-A has been opening branches in New Gomorrah itself, and the leftist snobs at The New Yorker are not happy about it:

New York has taken to Chick-fil-A. One of the Manhattan locations estimates that it sells a sandwich every six seconds, and the company has announced plans to open as many as a dozen more storefronts in the city. And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays. Its C.E.O., Dan Cathy, has been accused of bigotry for using the company’s charitable wing to fund anti-gay causes, including groups that oppose same-sex marriage.

Defending the sanctity of marriage from defilement — a position taken only a few years ago by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — is now regarded as a thought crime for which there must be zero tolerance.

The New Yorker does not like Chick-fil-A’s emphasis on the word “community,” which “suggests an ulterior motive” — namely, to convert people to Christianity by feeding them chicken sandwiches. It also doesn’t like the cows in Chick-fil-A advertising.

It’s impossible to overstate the role of the Cows—in official communiqués, they always take a capital “C”—that are displayed in framed portraits throughout the Fulton Street location. If the restaurant is a megachurch, the Cows are its ultimate evangelists. Since their introduction in the mid-nineties—when they began advising Atlanta motorists to “eat mor chikin”—they’ve remained one of the most popular, and most morbid, advertising campaigns in fast-food history, crucial to Chick-fil-A’s corporate culture.

This wicked corporate culture oppresses chickens on behalf of the coopted cows.

It’s worth asking why Americans fell in love with an ad in which one farm animal begs us to kill another in its place. Most restaurants take pains to distance themselves from the brutalities of the slaughterhouse; Chick-fil-A invites us to go along with the Cows’ Schadenfreude.

If only liberal elitists could acquire a sense of humor, they might not find regular Americans and their culture so incomprehensible.

As for the good Chick-fil-A does,

Defenders of Chick-fil-A point out that the company donates thousands of pounds of food to New York Common Pantry, and that its expansion creates jobs. The more fatalistic will add that hypocrisy is baked, or fried, into every consumer experience—that unbridled corporate power makes it impossible to bring your wallet in line with your morals. Still, there’s something especially distasteful about Chick-fil-A, which has sought to portray itself as better than other fast food: cleaner, gentler, and more ethical, with its poultry slightly healthier than the mystery meat of burgers. Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are inflected with this suburban piety.

It isn’t just the food that is good (at least by fast food standards). The company itself is good. You can’t expect The New Yorker to approve.

Leftist Bullies Claim Chick-fil-A Makes Them Feel Unsafe

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.

Libs Still Hate Chick-fil-A

The moonbat war on Chick-fil-A continues. From Florida:

The Stonewall Democrats of Pinellas County are crying foul over Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark’s decision to hold voter registration drives at nine Chick-fil-A locations. Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits, supports conservative causes.

If Chick-fil-A really does put faith ahead of profits, this strategy seems to be paying off. Business Insider reports that it “generates more revenue per restaurant than any other fast food chain in the US.”

The actual problem liberals have with Chick-fil-A is that President Dan Cathy admitted that like virtually everyone until only a few years ago, he is not in favor of homosexual “marriage.” The ownership is known to be Christian, to the horror of progressives.

Susan McGrath, leader of the Stonewall Democrats and head of the Pinellas Democratic Party, said the decision to use Chick-fil-A would be similar to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the event at Planned Parenthood.

Regrettably, the source did not include a link to this story:

Planned Parenthood will begin a nonpartisan campaign to register voters at its clinics, on college campuses and online to help marginalized populations participate more in this election cycle, the women’s health provider announced to the Huffington Post

The word “marginalized” in this context means “overwhelmingly likely to vote Democrat.”

American Taliban: Denver City Council Holding Up Chick-fil-A at Airport Because CEO Is Christian

Liberals present themselves as devoted advocates of women’s rights and homosexual privilege, and enemies of violence and religion. Yet they ally themselves with Muslims, who enslave women, murder homosexuals, and reject reality in favor of their conspicuously violent faith. In turn, Muslims overwhelmingly vote Democrat. This is confusing until you realize that the content of their respective ideologies is inconsequential; it is only the ruthless intolerance with which the ideology is imposed that matters. The most meaningful difference between Islam and liberalism lies in the methods used to coerce compliance, and these are determined by culture.

Given that both liberals and Muslims are viscerally hostile to Christianity, if you Americanized the Taliban and put it in charge of Denver, you could expect something like this:

Normally the approval process for a concession slot at Denver International Airport is routine. But when the franchise is Chick-fil-A, normal goes out the window. Members of the Denver City Council are now holding up approval on grounds that they don’t like the support for the “biblical” view of marriage expressed several years ago by the chicken chain’s CEO, Dan Cathy.

That is, because the CEO let it slip that he holds traditional Christian views, the liberals running Denver do not think Chick-fil-A should be allowed at the airport.

At a council meeting earlier this month, member after member took issue with Chick-fil-A on marriage. … The outcry is more absurd given the landmark Supreme Court ruling on marriage in June. Now that the Court has made same-sex marriage a constitutional right, it doesn’t matter what a Chick-fil-A exec might think. It’s past time for the victors to give up trying to silence and punish the remaining dissenters and accept their victory.

But victory isn’t enough for liberals or Muslims. They demand that you not only comply with their poisonous ideology, but agree with it. If they suspect that you don’t, they will hurt you. This pathological intolerance for independent thought is what makes them so compatible — and such a threat to the rest of us.

Ventura High School Bans Chick-fil-A

Although progressives seize power by increments, they will never be satisfied with less than everything. For them, it isn’t enough to thoroughly dominate the culture; they have to completely eradicate anything that even reminds them of opposition.

Chick-fil-A is owned by Christians. It came out in an interview with a religious publication that president Dan Cathy believes, like virtually everyone did until a couple of years ago, that marriage is between a man and a woman. Consequently, Chick-fil-A is politically incorrect and must be banned:

Feathers have been ruffled at California’s Ventura High School, where the principal this week banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended.

What, pray tell, could people find offensive about a plump juicy chicken breast tucked between two buttered buns?

Here’s what:

“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus,” [Principal Val] Wyatt told the Ventura County Star.

It was a sentiment supported by Trudy Tuttle Ariaga, superintendent of the Ventura Unified School District.

“We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ariaga told CBS News in Los Angeles.

Evidently their mission is to intolerantly exclude anything deemed not to be in total compliance with liberal dogma — in the name of tolerance and inclusivity, of course.

It’s the students who will pay for educrats’ intolerance and ingratitude:

The local Chick-fil-A franchise has a storied history of supporting the school district – to the tune of thousands of dollars – and owner Robert Shaffer had generously offered to give the booster club 200 meals for a “back-to-school” event on Wednesday at which they expected to raise $1,600 for the football team, the Ventura Star reported.

“That would have gone toward the football program, everything from uniforms to food for the boys,” booster club president Dan Swim told the Star.

Chick-fil-A has no official stand on homosexual “marriage,” and has gone out of its way to avoid controversy. But two years ago, Cathy committed the thought crime of saying this:

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Imagine a society in which a statement like that is completely beyond the pale. So far as I know, there have only been three: Sodom, Gomorrah, and the liberal-ruled USSA.

Master Sergeant Punished for Serving Chick-fil-A at Party

Ever since Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy let it be known that he supports the sanctity of holy matrimony, militant moonbats have targeted the company, organizing repulsive displays of homosexuality in an attempt to disgust customers away from its restaurants and even employing tasty Chick-fil-A sandwiches as props in an attempted terror attack. Needless to say, Chick-fil-A is not welcome in Commander in Chief Barack Hussein’s hyper-politicized military:

An Army master sergeant was punished after he hosted a promotion party and served Chick-fil-A sandwiches in honor of the Defense of Marriage Act.

The unidentified soldier was investigated, reprimanded, threatened with judicial action and given a bad efficiency report, according to the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.

Chaplain Alliance Executive Director Ron Crews reports that the soldier held a party to celebrate his promotion to Master Sergeant.

The invitations read, “In honor of my promotion and in honor of the Defense of Marriage Act, I’m serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at my promotion party.”

DOMA is the law of the land, but the rogue Obama Regime refuses to enforce it.

A year later, the Master Sergeant is still bogged down in a legal battle. The lesson is passed down from Obama through the military as clearly as it is through the IRS: do not say, do, or even think anything that a liberal might not like, or you will suffer consequences.

A few more examples:

One service member received a severe reprimand for expressing his faith’s religious position about homosexuality in a personal religious blog.

A chaplain was relieved of his command over a military chapel because he could not allow same-sex weddings to take place in the chapel.

And a chaplain who asked senior military officers whether religious liberty would be protected in the wake of the repeal of the law against open homosexual behavior in the military was told to “get in line” or resign.

The world has seen other governments that forcibly repressed Christianity. But not even the Soviet Union attempted to impose reverence for sexual perversion. It wasn’t sufficiently morally depraved.

Chick-fil-A Smoke Begins to Clear

Good news for fans of tasty chicken sandwiches: the great Chick-fil-A sellout to the Gay Mafia — widely reported in the “mainstream” media and even by the normally trustworthy Washington Times — appears to have been a liberal lie:

Mainstream media organizations have headlined over the last two days Chick-fil-A’s “change” they claim means the company suddenly is promising not to discriminate against homosexuals [as if discriminating against privileged perverts were even allowed in this country] — and that it would stop giving money to those organizations that promote traditional marriage.

“Chick-fil-A says it will stop funding antigay groups” proclaimed the Detroit Free Press.

But it appears the facts are that the company’s anti-discrimination policy remains just as it was months ago – before the controversy over owner Dan Cathy’s Christian beliefs erupted – and its donations appear to have had no new directive applied.

This was largely due to the dishonesty of self-aggrandizing Chicago alderman Joe Moreno, who boasted of forcing Chick-fil-A to bow to the militant homosexual lobby.

Moreno jumped before the cameras to say he has “finalized” negotiations with Chick-fil-A with a promise that the company no longer will give money to anti-”gay” organizations.

He said in an interview with Current.com that a statement had been obtained that the company no longer would donate to pro-marriage organizations, and “I also recently reviewed their 990 statement, which is a statement that shows all of their givings, they must submit publicly in the spring, and as of this date they haven’t given a dollar to those groups.”

But the most recent 990 form would cover 2011, meaning there was no “objectionable” giving, according to Moreno, as long back as 21 months — predating any of the flap over [Chick-fil-A owner Dan] Cathy’s statements.

Adding to the confusion caused by Moreno’s lies was Pink Nazi agitprop:

It was a statement from The Civil Rights Agenda that prompted the recent headlines. It stated that Moreno “finalized” negotiations with the company with a promise to no longer give money to “anti-gay” organizations.

The statement said of the Cathy family’s foundation, the WinShape Foundation, “is now taking a much closer look at the organizations it considers helping, and in that process will remain true to its stated philosophy of not supporting organizations with political agendas.”

But it was in July when the company stated, “Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”

Yesterday Chick-fil-A flatly denied that they had agreed not to give to certain pro-family groups in exchange for Morono allowing them to open stores in Chicago:

Contrary to reports first made by the gay-activist group The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) on Tuesday and later picked up by mainstream media outlets, Chick-fil-A and its charitable-giving arm, the WinShape Foundation, did not agree to stop making donations to groups that support the biblical definition of marriage in exchange for being allowed to open a franchise in Chicago.

Apparently Chick-fil-A hasn’t been giving money to the supposedly controversial National Organization for Marriage or Family Research Council lately anyway. A chicken sandwich with waffle fries and sweet tea may not help defend decency from the homosexual agenda, but it won’t do any harm either.

Chick-fil-A Knuckles Under to Degenerate Thugs

At least I can save the gas I’ve been wasting by driving several miles to the nearest Chick-fil-A:

Chick-fil-A stopped funding traditional-marriage groups in an effort to open a new Chicago restaurant, but the company initially kept quiet about the decision, prompting gay rights groups to speculate that the company feared a backlash from conservative customers.

The Christian-rooted fast food restaurant agreed to stop funding groups such as Focus on the Family that oppose same-sex marriage in a meeting with the Chicago politician who had been blocking the company’s move there. Chick-fil-A wrote a letter to Alderman Joe Moreno affirming this, according to his spokesman, Matt Bailey, but the company initially wouldn’t allow his office to release the letter to the public. Three weeks later they relented.

“There was concern from them,” said Anthony Martinez, executive director for the Civil Rights Agenda, the Illinois lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender group that negotiated with both Chick-fil-A and the alderman to stop funding for so-called anti-gay groups. “They really didn’t want to announce it, really, but, of course, the alderman needed to clarify why he was changing his stance on them opening a restaurant within his ward.”

That is, a private business was only allowed to open new restaurants after it was muscled by militant perverts via government bureaucrats into an agreement to stop donating money to Christian groups that uphold the sanctity of holy matrimony. That is the kind of country we live in now. Yet maps still call it America.

This could also help in other areas, such as Boston and San Francisco, where politicians vowed to oppose new Chick-fil-A restaurants.

The Civil Rights Agenda was also happy with the move, but said more needs to be done.

Until the last vestigial residue of liberty and decency has been scrubbed away, liberal authoritarians will always demand that more needs to be done.

This heartbreaking betrayal comes despite loyal customers rewarding Chick-fil-A’s supposed spine by giving them their best business day ever on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day

The War on Chick-fil-A is only a front in the greater war by the Left against everything that is good and decent. Fight back today by celebrating Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Your duty consists of eating a tasty chicken sandwich and waffle fries. Star Parker explains why it’s important:

The vile attacks on the firm and its owners, the Cathy family, should make clear, finally, that the “gay rights” movement is not about refining and advancing American freedom, but about rewriting American values and advancing, not freedom, but the homosexual political agenda. …

Can it really be that in America today a businessman can be labeled a bigot, boycotted and cut off by suppliers because of the crime of being a Christian?

When Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy made his now famous incendiary admission that “we are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” he was not pontificating. He was responding to a question in an interview done in a paper I expect is not read by many homosexuals — the Baptist Press.

This innocuous and highly conventional opinion has been punished with a jihad against Chick-fil-A, even in the absence of any credible evidence of “discrimination” against privileged perverts. Lib bureaurats in Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco have even attempted to prevent the company from expanding in the seeping pustules of moonbattery they rule, First Amendment liberties be damned.

This appalling phenomenon demonstrates that progressives will not stop pushing the front lines in the culture war until we stop them, despite the horrific damage they have already inflicted.

One court decision after another over the last 50 years has, step by step, purged any hint of religion and traditional values from our schools and public spaces.

Has it made this a fairer, better, freer nation? If you think breakdown of family, 40 percent out-of-wedlock births, a million abortions a year, $16 trillion in national debt, and government dependence is better and freer, yes.

The current cultural and moral devastation and the economic ruin that has inevitably followed are only the beginning if we don’t rally and start turning them back.

The War Against Chick-fil-A

It isn’t easy trying to run a business in the USSA once word gets out that you do not endorse homosexual depravity. This is what happened to grand opening festivities for a Chick-fil-A in California:

Fans were already camped out Wednesday night to prepare for the grand opening of a new Chick-fil-A in Laguna Hills, but a protest planned for Thursday morning caused a change of plans when the company made everyone who was camped out leave.

The protest was planned by militant perverts to punish the company because President Dan Cathy has been supportive of the concept that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Fans of the chicken chain were drawn, in part, to camp out overnight because the first 100 people at a grand opening usually get a year’s worth of free meals.

Chik-fil-A — free or otherwise — has felt pressure from several U.S. cities in recent weeks to back out of scheduled grand openings. Chicago and Boston leaders vowed to block the chain from opening in their cities this week.

Dan Cathy’s endorsement of values that were universally shared until only recently has set moonbats who can tolerate no dissent on the warpath. The odious Roseanne Barr wished cancer upon Chick-fil-A customers:

“anyone who eats S%#@ Fil-A deserves to get the cancer that is sure to come from eating antibiotic filled tortured chickens 4Christ”

After even some moonbats reacted to her rhetoric with horror, Roseanne issued this heartfelt apology:

“christian liars: i never wished cancer on you at all-jesus will punish u 4 ur deceit-I said processed foods cause cancer.”

Bristol Palin, who has some experience with progressives’ “tolerance,” is still trying to figure out their conception of diversity:

So, help me understand this, liberals. Are you for true and difficult diversity — diversity of opinion, religion, and beliefs? The kind of diversity that requires talking to each other about our differences of opinion and ideas? Or just the easy kind of diversity that makes for cool advertisements?

Actually, liberal establishmentarians are willing to tolerate some diversity of thought. Even as he slams the door on attempts by Chick-fil-A to create jobs in Chicago, ex-ballerina Mayor Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel spreads his arms in welcome to Louis Farrakhan’s fascistic cult. Farrakhan differs from Rahmbo in that he has a redeeming quality; he opposes the sick travesty of homosexual “marriage.”

But this isn’t about diversity. To use Chicago politics alumnus Barack Obama’s phrase, its about rewarding friends — and punishing enemies. As Bristol’s mother notes:

“Chicago thuggery is a scary thing in 2012. For its politicians to think they can muscle businesses and shut them out just because they hold a differing, albeit traditional, view on an issue is a scary thing indeed.”

Chick-fil-A may be allowed to open a restaurant in Chicago after all — but only if they surrender their fundamental right of freedom of association:

Chicago Alderman Proco Joe Moreno says the door isn’t entirely closed on a new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening in his 1st ward.

Moreno told WBEZ that the owners seeking to build the restaurant have said they won’t support any groups with a political agenda, including those with an anti-gay marriage stance.

Moreno says if he gets an explicit guarantee from the franchise owner he will consider granting zoning rights to a new Chick-fil-A in Logan Square.

“If they’re serious about that, and they’re willing to put that in writing and they’re willing to adopt that. I think those are the grounds where we can move forward,” Moreno said.

The explicit guarantee would effectively establish hiring priority for politically favored perverts and apparently limit the range of social and political views the franchise owners will be allowed to hold.

Meanwhile, militant sickos are planning to attack Chick-fil-A by ruining its customers’ appetites with in-your-face displays of nauseating perversion:

The gay rights group Equality Illinois is launching a campaign against Chick-Fil-A – petitioning universities and lawmakers to evict the fast food restaurant from their campuses and planning a “kiss-in” campaign by gay and lesbian couples outside Chick-Fil-A restaurants. …

At the “kiss-in,” Equality Illinois says, “LGBT supporters will show their disdain for Chick-Fil-A’s policies with public displays of affection in front of their restaurants.”

Chick-fil-A’s policies fall completely within highly restrictive laws that forbid any sort of “discrimination” against perverts. The point is to punish the company for Cathy’s personal views.

Advocates of homosexual degeneracy and the devout liberals who swallow their disgust and dutifully bob their heads in agreement will tell you that conservatives ought to mind their own business regarding repugnant perversions that spread lethal diseases. But this isn’t about tolerating private practices. This is about public acceptance of a morally loathsome lifestyle being imposed by force.

Moonbat Mayors Target Chick-fil-A

We have reached the appalling point in our decay into liberal totalitarianism where companies associated with traditional morality are not allowed to do business by militantly degenerate government authorities. Flamboyantly perverted Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced that Chick-fil-A will not be permitted to create jobs by building restaurants in his fiefdom because the CEO of the company opposes the blasphemous travesty of homosexual “marriage”:

“What the CEO has said as it relates to gay marriage and gay couples is not what I believe, but more importantly, it’s not what the people of Chicago believe. We just passed legislation as it relates to civil union and my goal and my hope … is that we now move on recognizing gay marriage. I do not believe that the CEO’s comments … reflects who we are as a city.”

The thought crime that precipitated this latest liberal assault on free enterprise:

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy was quoted last week as saying he was “guilty as charged” for supporting, what he called the “biblical definition” of marriage as between a man and a woman.

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,” Cathy was quoted as saying.

Because he holds this highly conventional view — which any decent person would find admirable — his company is effectively banned from expanding business in the cesspool of corruption that gave us Barack Hussein Obama.

Emanuel piously screeches that Christian values “are not Chicago values.” What are Chicago values? Here’s a hint: Emanuel has opened his arms in welcome to the rabidly anti-Semitic, anti-Caucasian, and anti-American lunatic Louis Farrakhan.

Chicago isn’t alone in persecuting Chick-fil-A:

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has said Chick-fil-A “doesn’t belong in Boston” because of Cathy’s discriminatory stance.

The word “discriminatory” in this context is particularly absurd, considering that the discrimination is against anyone who will not abandon conventional morality and embrace repugnant sexual abnormalities in the name of political correctness.

Because government has bloated to the point that it has total power over all human activity, verminous bureaurats will have no trouble keeping businesses associated with decency out of town:

Moreno said he has an ace in his back pocket if he runs into legal trouble: traffic and congestion issues caused by the store that have been the subject of behind-the-scenes negotiations for the last nine months.
