Portraits in Moonbattery: Adam M. Smith

There is no sight more loathsome to behold than a sanctimonious moonbat attacking its betters. Here Adam M. Smith, evidently the CFO of Vante in Tucson, harasses the hard-working employees at Chic-fil-A on behalf of the militant homosexual movement because he disapproves of the highly conventional personal opinions of President Dan Cathy:

The aspiring filmmaker is not proud of his video; he pulled it from YouTube. Fortunately it was restored, thoughtfully supplemented with his contact information.

Whether this moonbat is a militant homosexual himself or just a fellow traveler as he claims, he certainly demonstrates why these people want to criminalize disliking them.

On tips from Mary, B1bbet, Shawn, J, Ken, Beforethestorm, Wingmann, mcd, and Steve Rasch.

Update:

Adam M. Smith has been fired from Vante. Pardon me while I burst into tears — of laughter! Maybe Chick-fil-A will hire him to clean the restrooms.

    I know who is filled with hate. The Left always love to twist the truth and you are only allowed to have a personal opinion as long as it is the same as theirs.

    There is a note on the youtube page that says Smith was fired today. I hope it’s true.

  5. Mr Evilwrench says:

    And what is Vante’s product? I’ll research that in a moment, but congratulations, CFO, on reducing your own customer base. You know, if you just expressed your own opinion, maybe I’d ignore it, but being a flaming asshole about it is just uncalled for.

  6. Logic Mine says:

    WOW! he makes such a compelling case!

    I mean, with all of his vociferous references to “HATE” and then admitting to extorting from Chic-fil-A by demanding water without the slightest intention of making a purchase.

    If that wasn’t enough he then realized that his sophomoric complaint was coming across as SILLY, because it was. So, what did he do? Well, like a true moonbat, he did the only thing he knew…

    He personally attacked the woman who did nothing but serve him with his water and respond to his “INTRUSIVE” and “VILE” attacks on her personality and her job with professionalism and kindness.

    And if you think we believe you are “STRAIGHT” you’ve got another thing coming. We know what you are.

    Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO
    Employee Has Left the Company

    TUCSON, AZ–(Marketwire – Aug 2, 2012) – The following is a statement from Vante:

    Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

    The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

    We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante and its employees.

    Ooh, catheter stuff! I bet he’s really looking forward to the effect his hero barky’s going to have on the healthcare industry! I’d really like to watch him squirm, but I just don’t care enough about him.

  9. Mr Evilwrench says:

    Wow missed it. Mwahahaha.

  10. cindy says:

    I am so HAPPY he was fired! what a dick. and I agree, he is NOT straight! ………..Chick-fil-a……PLEASE give that girl a bonus!!!!!

  11. J says:

    He’s no longer with Vante.

    Interestingly, the guy appears to have quite a Chritophobia (no I don’t mean it in he-doesn’t-agree-with-me way, the way that most gays use the ‘phobia’ word). One of the videos deleted from his Youtube channel was a video of him supposedly (I haven’t seen the video myself, but only was able to read his description of it and read someone else’s description of it) harassing a man carrying a Cross on a Good Friday. Likely in the same way he tried to harass the girl at CFA.

  12. wingmann says:

    The girl”s name is Rachel,I think,and a manager who is going to college while working….no wonder the vitriol,she may become an independent thinker.
    Maybe we should start a college fund for her?

    That little puke is going to rue the day he bullied a girl in a drive thru…ugly is bone deep…video is FOREVER…PUNK.

  13. Chayal Boded says:

    HA! what a turd! it’s all about feeeeeelings with these girlies. The girl should have punched it and made it cry . . don’t know the company, but I hope they fire this thing . . . for sheer schtoopidity . .

    The best is at the end of the video when Mr Smith says,

    ”I’m a nice guy, by the way… totally heterosexual. Not a gay in me, I just can’t stand the hate.”

  18. AC says:

    Na na na na.

    Vante is lucky to no longer have a rage-filled idiot in charge of their money.

    How’s that free speech working for ya now buddy? It’s all fun and games when it’s someone else losing their rights, right? See you on the unemployment line, loser.

  24. MicahStone says:

    I commend Vente, the company for which neanderthal smith worked as CFO, for FIRING him for his sub-human display of hatred at Chick-fil-A. A solidly leftist company – or the OBOZO regime – would have used his uncivil barbaric behavior as a justification for a PROMOTION.

    ”I’m a nice guy, by the way… totally heterosexual. Not a gay in me, I just can’t stand the hate.”

    That statement about not being gay gave Vante a green light to fire him without repercussions. It’s a matter of fact now. lol

  26. Gordy says:

    Say, has anyone heard from lao lately? (Snicker!)

  27. J says:

    Harass the low level drive-thru cashier.

    That’ll teach em!

    lol!

  28. St. Gilbert says:

    When one’s arguments cannot withstand even the most basic level of philosophical scrutiny, we get the tactics practiced by Adam M. Smith.

  29. Jim says:

    I suspect there are some people in the finance organization of Vante who are breathing a sigh of relief. guys like that don’t just take things out on cashiers, in my experience they browbeat anyone the feel is inferior to them

  30. Sweep the leg says:

    OK, but what “hate”?? Believing that marriage is between a man and a woman is “hate”?

    And we can’t defeat these retards? WTF?

  31. TexasDoc says:

    I would wager that the @$$h0le’$ departure from the company was not his idea. The CEO is probably frantically doing damage control and the corporate attorneys were getting out the steel-toed boot the minute the SCOAMF put his video out on Youtube. Did he not think that bullying a young female clerk and his fake protests that he is not gay (WTF was that?) would somehow not attract attention? What a schmuck…

  32. Joe says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I wish I could have seen the look on his smug face when they told him to clean out his desk and take a hike.
    Priceless!

  33. Son of Taz says:

    HE WAS FIRED!! Excellent.

    As the CFO of a corporation, he acted like a 10 year old. Regardless whether he’s gay or not (probably is) he showed terrible lack of good judgement, something a CFO really shouldn’t be deficient in.

    I wonder how the Chik-Fil-A clerk is feeling now? Dancing in the street maybe?

  34. rockman says:

    The girl showed real class. Adam showed only his ass.

    What a douche bag.
    I hope he enjoyed that “free” water, it cost him his job…

    Shnikies the way he talked on the video I thought he was a 20 something old man but w/ his FB profile pick, that’s obviously not the case. WHAT A FUTHAMUCKIN’ CHILD
    and I feel so bad for the employee. You’re a CFO and ya ‘Tube this and you didn’t think there’d be any blowback??

    He’ll probably sue for wrongful termination because he teh gay. 🙂 Could you imagine having to work for this twat hat? If you have to say “…I’m really a nice guy..” chances are usually good you often ain’t.

    Yep, Gay.

    Why lie about it. Like Rachel couldn’t tell from his voice?

    Actually,lies are a libtards best friend
    This pronouncement now reshuffles the deck entirely, and sets him up for MPS
    (most privileged status)

    Now that he can be deemed a victim, the CFA manager is fair game for verbal and physical attack
    plus he can do the alphabet soup network circuit.

  43. Marian says:

    Wow, this guy really stuck it to that young lady and CFA–NOT!

  44. TonyD95B says:

    Funny…..the Vante Website is “currently unavailable due to capacity issues”

    F#CK ‘EM. This punk got fired because he embarassed Vante publicly……up until that point, I am quite sure they ENCOURAGED his bullying behavior.

    It is absolutely impossible for him to have risen to the rank of CFO without someone having realized what a jacka## this guy is.

    Vante sucks. They may have fired him, but up until he embarrased them publicly, they provided aid, comfort and promotions to this no good POS motherf#cker, and I’ll take their apologies seriously when I see them fire the personnel director and the jacka## that hired this dips#it in the first place.

    BTW, I have a teenage daughter that works part-time at CFA…….she would be as gracious and professional as the young lady in the video. I feel bad that she has to be confronted by such things.

    What Adam Smith did was the same as if he had confronted my li’l miss – and he can go F#CK HIMSELF, as can the a##hats at Vante and their insinscere motherf#cking half-hearted let’s spin this damage-control we-had-no-idea even though we encouraged it “apology”.

    When their website recovers I will tell them so. F#CK ADAM SMITH and F#CK his jackass enablers at VANTE.

    Like they didn’t f#cking know what a d#ck this guy was……..Oh, GIVE US A BREAK, jacka##es.

  45. Mary says:

    Nathaniel, I totally agree. A good pal of mine says “self praise is NO praise at all”: and he is right on the money far as I can tell 😉

    As for the possible lawsuit, uuugh, I sure hope not. It would really suck to see this guy wrangle money out of this. I want RACHEL to get money, not that POS!

    Dear Dim,

    “a gay” is a man who likes to put his winkie in the place where another man goes poopie. Or vice-versa.

    I meant when someone says “I don’t have a gay in me”, that sounds grammatically strange. There was sarc there.

  51. fxdwg says:

    So long, asswipe. Go hit up the gay network for a job, I’m sure that they will set you up. News flash: even “gay” companies don’t like their CFO’s putting out Youtube rants, abusing minimum wage employees or personal attacks on religious people.
    P.S. There is a God. He has a great sense of humor.

  52. Louie says:

    I think what he meant was “I don’t have a gay in me *at the moment*”. Obviously queer.

  53. dan says:

    Vante COULDN’T fire idiot
    BECAUSE he was gay…
    bet there’s some high fives there this morning

  54. Gregory of Prescott says:

    Yes, the best part is when he had to point out to the female that he was not gay… as if it would be embarrassing for him to have a woman think he was a homosexual. Apparently as far as Mr Smith is concerned there is nothing wrong with being a homosexual, just as long as you don’t think he is one.

  55. Doppelgänger says:

    “Not a gay in me”

    Well not at this moment anyway. Maybe after lunch

  58. 762x51 says:

    In the past I have been willing to live and let live as far as gays are concerned. Their demand that we change a fundamental tenet of civilization has caused me to change my mind.

    Gays, of course are free to marry as are the rest of us, they just don’t want to follow the rules and marry someone of the opposite sex. They used to demand we tolerate them which, so long as they keep their sexual proclivities in the privacy of their home is no skin off my nose. Now they are demanding we accept their behavior as part of mainstream society. Only about 2 – 4% of the population is “gay”, why should the 96% that remains alter the way we do things to accommodate their choice? No, I do not believe that they are gay by birth, since gays by definition do not reproduce there is no way for a gay gene to have propagated down throughout history. Even if it could be passed on, at only 2 – 4% of the population the presence of a gay gene is, at best, an aberration and does not necessitate a change in society just to make them feel more normal.

    After seeing this jackhole’s video, I’m really starting to hate these butt munchers.

  59. Dupree says:

    “Not a gay” Yea, he is way too passionate to not have some foreskin in the game.

    Uggh….go to the bottom of that resume Oktohatebullies posted. If it’s correct, this slimeball has four sons.

  61. Andre Loch Rane says:

    I laughed so hard reading all the comments. All along, I have been the most happy person for what this stupid individual got for what he did. However, reading the guy’s resume, I feel real sorry for his 4 sons. This guy has ruined their lives for quite a while. They should be removed from him for a while so they don’t get scorned all over the place. My only suggestion for him is to move to SF where he will be welcomed with open arms and legs!

  62. Nathaniel M says:

    beforethestorm says:
    Uggh….

    Oh great… I just saw that. He couldn’t even have the fore site to see how he might be putting his livelihood in jeopardy and his kid’s well being. Risk the loss of family income so you can have your sanctimonious public moment? F**king narcissist of the highest order.

    From the looks of his resume he sure fits the bill as being a 1% er! 🙂

    To top it all off he was an adjunct prof to boot so I’m sure he was all safey-safe and Care Bear snuggly in that echo chamber of academia. I’m sure his life was all lattes and mani/pedis….

  63. Nathaniel M says:

    “My only suggestion for him is to move to SF where he will be welcomed with open arms and legs!”

    F%%k that noise.

    We already got enough self-important a%%holes out here already of the bitter queen and non-gay variety, native and non-native.

    No need to add to the existing pool thank you oh-so-much!

    That dude is a total FAG, which is bad enough, but he is also a raging asshole, and that is intolerable.
