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.

On tips from Wiggins, Manuel, and Henry.

    Do it anyway, this ain’t Nazi Germany. Sell what you like, let the chips fall where they may. You want to suspend the ENTIRE football team, Ms. Wyatt? Optics, yannow.

    The Nazi Left is not worried about who might be offended, that is merely a pretext, otherwise, they would be concerned about those they offend by going out of their way to not offend unspecified phantoms.

    Like the Michigan Army officer who was denied entry into his daughters schools because he was wearing a(gasp) U.S. Army uniform which MIGHT offend SOMEONE.

    The society that liberal utopians envision is one where we all wear th esame clothes, eat the same food, ride the same bus, get paid the same money, have the same skin color, think the same thoughts, et al. That boring, monochromatic landscape is so abhorrent to me that I would rather die as a revolutionary American than live as a sniveling coward in that world.

    Well, I’m off to Chick-fil-a for lunch.

    You leftard nazis are beginning to embarrass yourselves–and piss off everyone else.

    Though I despise fast food, from now on I’m going to make it a point to stop by a Chick-fil-A, at least once a week, to purchase something either for myself, a homeless person, a passing cat or dog, or the trash can.

    I never trust women with 3 names, they are usually foaming-at-the-mouth liberals. I’m sure these high school kids are all aware of the political beliefs of the now-dead owner of Chick-fil-A. (sarcasm)

    “We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission”. Oh-if THIS offends people that’s OK then? Looks like the Left may offend whoever they like so long it’s not them who gets offended. Yet another example of do what I say, not as I do from the usual suspects.

    “I didn’t want them on campus” – that single comment gets to the heart of the matter. Either ‘val’ supports the left or is afraid of confrontation – which just ‘might’ bring into question her personal beliefs or the hypocritical stance of the school. Nah, let’s just ban a group that does nothing but bring value to the school, both monetarily and morally.

    One of my favorite episodes of the “Twilight Zone” is Eye of the Beholder. In one scene the leader of a future society gives a TV speech about “glorious conformity” that could have come right out of today’s White House. That’s what the Left wants-glorious conformity. All of us can be drones that dress alike, think alike and worship big government and its leader alike so that nobody gets offended.

    I AM OFFENDED by Trudy Tuttle Ariaga’s discrimination against a law-abiding, tax paying company.

    Trudy Tuttle Ariaga speaks with forked tongue:

    “We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ariaga said.

    WRONG. TTA wants to EXclude Chick-fil-A. She is not THAT intersted in ‘diversity’.

    Students should bring Chick-fil-A sandwiches to the football games. Rub Trudy’s nose in her bogus ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusiveness’. A few Chiick-fil-A signs wouldn’t hurt, either. Let’s see how Trudy feels about the First Amendment.

    My teen daughter works at a Chick-fil-A. Great place to work, it seems. Incidentally, two of her shift managers are gay. Openly gay. Not seeing much hate from that organization.

    I live in Ventura, and have emailed Principal Wyatt my letter of concern. When she calls Chick Fil-A’s beliefs on Traditional Marriage “Offensive” – she is saying it of all Christians in Ventura. She’s telling us and our children, “As principal of Ventura High, I find your Christian values “offensive”. I asked her why we should have any confidence that she would not censure Christian students for expressing similar Christians viewpoints as Chick Fil-A did. I’m not going to hold my breath ’til she responds. Here’s her school email address, in case you’d like to send a ‘get well’ card or something. Val.Wyatt@venturausd.org

    Go easy on the Ventura Unified School District, if you call (as I did). The operator is really nice, and is happy to forward your SHORT complaint to the superintendent. She told me they’ve been receiving complaints from all over the country. Bravo! I just wish our town was getting publicity for something other than this. We have some of the best beaches and surfing spots in California.
