A gathering of sycophants in Roanoke to hear Barack Obama stick his foot in his mouth again? He could only wish he could draw a mob like that.
It's a photo of a crowd of red-blooded Americans gathered outside a Chick-fil-A, waiting their turn to get inside and do their part to champion FREE SPEECH. A photo that could have been taken outside every Chick-fil-A restaurant in the country yesterday.
Did I say crowd? Let me be more precise: It was a THRONG. The Multitudes. We the People.
Facebook was on fire yesterday with reports of the turnout across the land to support the head of Chick-fil-A, who is under fire for expressing his Christian views.
The mainstream press?
But Fox News was there:
Mike Huckabee on ‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day’: Massive Turnout Proves People Are Tired of Hypocrisy, Bigotry Toward ChristiansMy daughter visited a Chick-fil-A in Jacksonville, North Carolina yesterday to show her support for our freedom of speech. She said she had to wait in a large crowd of orderly and enthusiastic customers for an hour to be served and that every time someone got their chicken sandwich and waffle-fries, a cheer went up. A cheer for that which we hold to be precious.
After crowds of people gathered at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country, Fmr. Governor Mike Huckabee – a strong supporter of the movement – reacted to the turnouts on today’s Your World. He said that the response of the American public proves that people are ‘tired’ of hypocrisy toward Christians.
“We’ve had over 21 million views on my Facebook page, but this is something not just for Chick-fil-A but for America, and for people who believe the First Amendment applies to everyone, including Christians,” he said.
“I think a lot of people felt that if you’re a Muslim and you take a position against same-sex marriage, Rahm Emanuel will put his arm around you in a public ceremony like he did to Louis Farrakhan the very day he was condemning Dan Cathy, and it’s that hypocrisy and inconsistency and intolerance and bigotry toward Christians that I think people are just tired of.” [link]
America, I love you.
Meanwhile, in hate-driven city halls in Chicago and Boston and Los Angeles ...

And how do those who wish to stifle dissent react?

If the "open-minded" among us can't shut those awful Christians up, they'll kill them.
Ah, yes. They reek of tolerance.

From the comments yesterday:
"I think Chik-Fil-E [sic] is stupid on a purely business level for doing this."
As it turns out:

Yeah, it was a really stupid business move.
