Tick-Off a Liberal: Take a Boy Scout to Chick-fil-A

Forget about Bert and Ernie. I always thought Kermit the Frog was a little “light in the flippers,” if you know what I mean. Miss Piggy? Probably just cover (wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more). And how about that perennial bachelor, Fozzie Bear? Wocka Wocka, indeed.

Or not.

I don’t know.

Still, a recent move by The Jim Henson Company makes you wonder. In a distinctly knee-jerk, anti-family development, the Muppet mogul has severed promotional ties with Chick-fil-A – the booming fast-food chain and American Cinderella story. The multi-billion dollar company has stirred the ire of left-wing extremists in recent days.

Their crime? Failure to obey the nauseating, mind-numbing dictates of political correctness.

Dan Cathy – a devout Christian and CEO of the biblically based eatery – recently made a few innocuous public comments in support of legitimate marriage – sentiments the vast majority of morals-minded Americans happen to agree with. (I sent an email to Chick-fil-A corporate suggesting that, in reprisal, they add frog legs and ham hock to the menu. No reply thus far.)

“We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit,” said Cathy. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. … We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

Or, at least we used to live in that country. No more. Not if we let the godless left have its way.

Cathy’s statement was all it took. The “progressive” establishment had a mouth-frothing, water-meets-Wicked-Witch-of-the-West meltdown. They’ve charged the battlefield with that characteristic slash-and-burn, seek-and-destroy style and grace we’ve come to expect.

“Boycott Chick-fil-A!” shrieked the ever-tolerant, oh-so-enlightened sexual-anarchist troglodytes. “Bigots! Haters! Homophobes!” (You know; same pointless pap, different day.)

Demanding a public apology from Cathy, Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno pledged to prohibit Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in Chicago’s Logan Square because – well – because he’s a communist.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino told the Boston Herald that he, too, would block Chick-fil-A from the “Cradle of Liberty.” (Want some crackers with that rich irony chowda, Tommy?)

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel followed suit.

Now, I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but let me just say to these, um, gentlemen: Look here, you law-breaking, totalitarian, anti-American dolts. We have a thing in this country called the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. We will not sit idly by while you use this sacred document as potty paper for puppy. You may have sworn-off chicken, but keep it up, tough guys, and freedom-loving America will force feed you a Sears Tower-sized helping of crow.

Mat Staver, founder and chairman of the Liberty Counsel civil-rights firm weighed in: “To deny business permits or zoning approvals to Chick-fil-A because the president of the privately owned family business expressed his biblical view of natural marriage is outrageous,” he said. “Any city trying to ban Chick-fil-A will not win this battle.”

“These government officials ought to be ashamed. For a public official to threaten denial of a right to do business because the president of a private company supports natural marriage is the height of stupidity and intolerance.

“Unfortunately, their response is typical of intolerant homosexual activists,” he continued. “They will go to any lengths to silence the majority of Americans who believe that children do best when raised in a natural family with one mom and one dad.”

Who would’ve thought that a major flashpoint for our culture war would involve waffle fries – evidently laced with some illicit, highly addictive chemical agent – and equally mouth-watering chicken-and-pickle sandwiches?

    Liberals need to mind there own business being gays a choice people have opinions and thought and beliefs thats what makes america america deal with it i will still eat at chic fil a because i like it not because the owner had enough nads to voice his opinion grow up cry babbies

  • deeme

    If I cared what these people thought , which I don't, I would walk through their lives with them and introduce them to all the other things they use on a daily basis, brought to them by heterosexuals..christians and or family oriented people..I'm wondering if this is a road they really want to go down, because I hope they know two can play at it..are they saying that they rely only on homosexuals to buy their products??

    With all the Chick-Fil-A advertising on these politics blogs, it makes me wonder are they getting acquired by Bain Capitol? why else would this arm of the RNC be inserting these fast food ads in their stream of articles?

    • Eli Jones

      Shouldn't you be over at the huff and puff lib. Now excuse me, I am headed to Chick Fil A.

      • overthetop

        Nah, I like it over here on the Chick-Fil-A forums. I like reading four or five articles a day about a regional fast food company. We don't have any in my neck of the woods, yet I am fascinated by the concept of fast food chicken! Maybe Godfather Politics can feature a different item on the menu every 6 hours or so. Or maybe an expose on the hidden secret recipe the "Colonel" has been keeping all these years. He probably gets his 7 spices from Iraq - why won't you release the long form recipe, Colonel?!

        • pateboo

          It's ELEVEN secret herbs and spices, and since you liberals can't seem to get your numbers right, there are FIFTY states in the US, not 57. Maybe the Muppets should worry more about teaching THAT!!! The Colonel has never hidden the fact that his recipe is a SECRET, unlike Obama and his secret AGENDA.

        • overthetop

          I only count red states and Christian spices.

      Oh Mary, you really can't be that stupid can you?

      Chic Fil A is smart, you are an idiot. Any questions?

    Wish we had one here in Grand Rapids MI. Good God fearing employers are hard to come by. I work for one right now Kelly Dean.

    • pateboo

      I wish we had one in or at least near Glenview, IL. Our parish does something with a pizza company for fundraising, it would be nice if they could do something with Chick-fil-A too. God won't be mocked and always gets the last word. And all this is free advertising for Chick-fil-A and doing more to PROMOTE their sales, rather than hurt them. So who is having the last laugh here?

    Matthew 5:10-12
    Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
    10 Great blessings belong to those who suffer persecution for doing what is right.
    God’s kingdom belongs to them.
    11 “People will insult you and hurt you. They will lie and say all kinds of evil things about you because you follow me. But when they do that, know that great blessings belong to you. 12 Be happy about it. Be very glad because you have a great reward waiting for you in heaven. People did these same bad things to the prophets who lived before you.

    Straights or homosexuals can marry a person of the opposite sex. There is no discrimination.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mark-Davison/100003667299183 Mark Davison

      This is exactly what I've been saying for the longest time.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jerry.sutton.3304 Jerry Sutton

      How can a homosexual marry a person of the oppsite sex....it wouldn't be
      homosexual then? But for a man to marry a man...a woman to marry a
      woman...its a sin....its in the Bible....or don't you believe in the Holy Bible.

    Take a portrait studio picture of the boys scouts in front of Chick-Fil-A giving a thumbs up!

    • Raymond

      I would encourage everyone who loves America
      to visit this restaurant.

      • pateboo

        I would, but I'm unemployed thanks to one of Obama's TWO council members shipping my job overseas, and the one closest to me, is still too far away, especially with todays high gas prices. Besides putting Miss Piggy and Kermit on their menu, they should do something using Big Bird, since their menu revolves around Fowl anyway. Maybe have a picture of Big Bird between two bun halves. LOL Since gays can't breed, you would think the Henson company would be pro straight marriage to keep generating more customers for when the current crop outgrows the Muppets.

  • Eli Jones

    I will continue to patronize Chick Fil A, even more so now. Patriots, show your support, eat more Chicken.

    • disgusted demacrat

      Just a reminder that eating a Chick-Fil-A sandwich will ward off those EVIL FAGGOTS!! LOL..Taking the wife there tommorow after her doctors appt.

      • Doc

        The last gay person who went to Chick-fil-a burst into flames when they entered the door.

  • Dan

    I ate a Chick-Fil-A once and enjoyed it. Now it's becoming a target of the free speech libs I'll think I'll eat there more often to prove to those liberal butt heads that anyboby is entitiled to thier opinions. Hey if I got to listen and be tolerant of their bableing they can do the same. I don't like bullies

  • dixiecrystal

    I say we boycott, Chicago, Boston, New Orleans, where ever these mayors made this statement. Let them know.

    • Family Man

      WE CANCELLED OUR PLANNED FAMILY TRIP TO BOSTON! WE WILL NOT BUY THE PLANE TICKETS, RENT THE CAR, STAY IN THE HOTEL OR EAT IN THEIR
      RESTAURANTS.

  • victoryman

    What a great idea. Don't forget, Wednesday is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. See you there!

  • http://www.facebook.com/rwyatthaines Raeman Haines

    Considering that Muppet creator Jim Henson is dead , and has been for some years now you need to find out who it is that heads up the Muppet Empire . It sure ain't Kermit or any of his pals

  • Libman

    Instead take a poor kid to a Chic fil a you will be fulilling one the commandmenst, food has nothing to do with religious dogma.

  • Supersize Faith

    Mr. Barber, i do love the idea of Chick-fil-A adding frog legs and ham hock to the menu..., but only if they're kosher.

    and Rahm Emanuel is on tape saying that the first amendment is OVER RATED, now that is a value that we want in our leaders.

    Vote this man out.

  • johnsnare

    Who really cares about Jim Henson,? All the muppets are GAY.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jerry.sutton.3304 Jerry Sutton

      He was probabley a child molester as well....a pedophile with his muppets
      appealing to kids.....a good way to reach them with cute funny characters...,
      then wham....its OK...we're really nice people...we just want to have sex with
      you....see how funny and cute my muppets are. Wonder why he died so
      early in life....could it be that it was God's way of telling him he was wrong.
      I wonder if he made peace with God and accepted The Lord Jesus Christ
      as his savior? If not....I pity him.

      • CARLjr

        you sir are an enormous jerk. Henson has been dead for 22 years - he did not have anything to do with pulling the plastic Chinese toys out of your happy meal. Please direct your hatred and slanderous remarks elsewhere.

      • John

        I feel really sorry for you, really.

  • http://twitter.com/TTexas1 T-Texas

    Don't leave the Cub Scouts out,they likw chicken also.

  • Nickster

    Lets see, Rahm Emanuel is stating that Dan Cathy does not represent Chicago values lol. What values might that be. Lets see Chicago has one of the most corrupt political atmospheres of any state. Most of their politics are run by Union Thugs while a number of their politicians languish in jail. HA They also boast one of the highest crime rates in the US. If this is the Chicago Values so highley touted by our buddy Rahm, he can keep them. We can only pray that these so called Chicago Values to not spread to the rest of the US.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jerry.sutton.3304 Jerry Sutton

      Well, lets face it, he looks like a crook...acs like a crook...must be a crook
      and his values are equally crooked.

      • CARLjr

        Rahmney

    • http://www.facebook.com/michael.hilton.773 Michael Hilton

      Ah, but Nickster, those are firm "democrat" values...thus they ought to be considered Chicago values as well. Logical enough, isn't it? Now, on the other hand, consider what a "community organizer" in Chicago really is. Our bud, Obama, was one of those. His job was to organize the population so that party politics prevailed. That morphs into Chicago values as well, I guess. Maybe I'm going in circles here, but when liberals shout about values, insanity reigns.

  • lizaz

    We and all our friends and family are supporting Chick-fil-A 100%. Hooray for someone who stands up for what they think!!!!

  • J.D. Scott

    Mayors Menino and Emanuel, Where's all the Hope and Change you want? Change is allowing someone in who might think a bit differently than you, Hope is that we, (The majpority of Freedom loving Americans) will win out. Stuff your homo ideas where they'll do some good. Live and let live.

    I'm taking some boy scouts from the neighborhood to Chick-fil-A on wednesday, AND I do know someone who is gay and I will buy a sandwich for him with my favorite home made HOT sauce. ( minus the KY.)

    These hard left liberals, don't think that anyone else should have their say. They think you either have to agree with them, or else. I am glad that good people are finally standing up against these evil hard left liberals. Next, we need to get them out of our school system. If you think they are trying to shut up adult business owner's, just what do you think they are doing to shut up small children ?

  • CommieHater

    So if two peter-puffers or two carpet-munchers get together, it still isn't marriage. One thing they will NEVER EVER be able to do is to procreate without involving a third party!

    I will support Chick Fil A. They made me a fan of their franchise with the boycott threats coming those ahem Muppets.

  • Doski

    Rahm Mis-spoke. What he meant to say was . . . ." Chicago doesn't support the Values America is based upon". I Totally Agree and Simply suggest surrounding it with a Fence and Lots of Barbed Wire/ Razor Wire. Do it quickly before it spreads !

  • tarheel

    I would personnally love to see these cities sued, chic-filet win and then tell them they don't want to open a store in your God-forbidin city.
