Bye-Bye Bigoted Chicken: Chick-Fil-A Cries Uncle

I now pronounce you rooster and rooster.

Not anymore!

Not anymore!

Remember how dirty libruls were spitting on the First Amendment by refusing to eat bigoted chicken? Well, the First Amendment is now oficially dead.

Chick-fil-A cried uncle, thus rending in twain the hearts of all the nimrods who shoved chicken sandwiches in their gaping maws in order to show their support for homophobia and bigoted assholery. Let’s hear it for the gay agenda!

From The New Civil Rights Movement:

Chick-Fil-A has reportedly stated it will no longer donate to anti-gay organizations or groups that actively oppose same-sex marriage.

    I thought their sales were HUGE!

    I refuse to believe it is not an economic reason. Based on the past forty years.

    So now we can expect throngs of bigots to walk into Chick-Fil-A and vomit up those sandwiches they bought out of spite?

    I’ll give it a few months to see if they actually follow through. I would kinda like to be able to get some of their chicken strips when I go visit my parents at Christmas, but if I have to keep getting tots at Sonic Burger instead, I can live with that.

    There’s a place called Sonic Burger which sells babies? And they taste like chicken?

    Too late. Never going back in anyway, even if I did trust them to honor this, which I don’t. If they’d wanted liberals like me for customers, they would never have done this to begin with. Plus, their food was going down hill anyway, and their service has always been slow.

    What a relief, now I can go back to not eating at Chick-Fil-A because serve shitty food, instead of not eating there because they support bigots.

    I have this older male co-worker who goes to Chik-Fil-A three times a week since this controversy began. And he announces it out loud every single time. I keep my trap shut because I am only a contractor and I actually like him overall However, I always think the same thing, “if you want to clog up up your arteries in support of hatred and bigotry hastening the day you die, more power to you. Bigotry against LGBT will die with the majority of your generation and the sooner that happens the better.”

    I’m honestly surprised at this. Didn’t think any pro-gay boycott would hurt their sales badly enough. It’s a two-day drive to the nearest branch, but I’ll continue to stay away..

    Better watch it, your comment will get picked up by some conservative group who will use it to prove that liberals eat babies.

    So now right wing Southerners have no other excuse to give for eating up 5,000 calories at Chick Fil A other than that they want enormous fried chicken sandwiches with sugared breading and large waffle fries with a large sugar-bomb Coca Cola?

    patroclus says:

    Not good enough. The statement was made only by their “Real Estate Director” which is NOT the highest office in the company and does not necessarily have the power to enforce compliance throughout the company. The specific request by the Chicago alderman was for the company to adopt a comprehensive anti-discrimination policy covering all aspects of the company’s business and a mere statement by a senior executive, while laudable, cannot substitute for an actual board-enacted company-wide policy.

    There are also possible loopholes; they could potentially open up another corporation or trust which makes the bigoted donations while keeping the one in question “clean.”

    In my view, they should not get the special zoning variance that they are requesting for the stand-alone restaurant at Logan Square in Chicago until and unless they actually comply with Chicago’s laws and reasonable document requests. With all this brouhaha, they have shown themselves to be untrustworthy and everything needs to be completely above board and honest if they really want the Logan Square standalone special zoning variance.

    Well, gee whiz. I bet they (1) shipped mad cash off to NOM and other hate groups over the past several months since this Nov 6th is likely the last gasp of fully organized, fully funded anti-gay electoral fooferawing. That they won’t give any more is nothing to crow over.
    (2) the CEO and his cronies will get a nice bonus at the end of the year, which they will dutifully tithe over to the haters
    (3) its still crispy fried death on a bun served by stores that almost never promote women to management level.

    They’ve been Komen-cowed, but I can’t imagine they’ve been reformed.

    This is good news only in sense that it will consume a news cycle and probably piss of NOM and Tony Perkins. Chick-fil-a may no longer donate to anti-LGBT organizations, but since the company is privately held, the Cathy’s can, and probably will, continue to donate large sums to the same bigoted organizations. The Coors and Koch family members have played this game for years.

    Bottom line, Chick-fil-a profits end up in the same organizations to promote anti-equality.

    Not to endorse fast food as health food. But the chic fil a brand is better than most. The sandwiches are all under $500 cal and its not hard to have a sald instead of fries.
    Our kids like their play areas and will be happy to go back, since we havent been back after thay went full metal wingnut. I liked that the kids meals came with books. We still have a bob the builder book from there.
    My guess is the real silent majority just stopped going like we did. And 27% buying extra just didn’t make up the lost business.

    If Chick-Fil-A or its owners intend to continue donating to Republicans, then they’re lying.

    Which is to say, in short, they’re lying.

    @gian: I have a friend who works there (Southern Cal). She said the “support Chick-Fil-A” days were fucking crazy, but then business fell off a cliff.

    I guess it’s pretty bad, as she got laid off about ten days ago. My local store is now stripped to the bone as far as staff goes. They’re getting less food deliveries and the lunch lines (it’s right next to a military base) are smaller.

    The Populist says:

    @WereBear: Bwahahaha, seems our protest did the trick. I doubt they could make up the business a lot of us gave them in the past and they had to do something.

    Viva la first amendment! The right needs to remember one thing, a business provides services and products and creates value in their communities. It is not a vehicle for pushing hate agendas. I don’t know if people are going back to Chick Fil A now but it does speak to the power of organization to make people aware that buying their chicken amounts to giving money to hate organizations, since that is what they did.

    @Forum Transmitted Disease: What is sad is all of my rightie friends felt it was about the first amendment somehow and ate there that specific day. Since then none go there regularly simply due to needing to watch both their pocketbooks and their waste lines.

    The company lost big on this. The reaction to this is a lesson to anybody who makes their company a vessel for evil political movements.

    The Populist says:

    @Sophist: I see it like this, Cathy and his family will still give their money to these groups. I am betting as a private company CFA is either an LLC or an S-Corp so all profits are automatically split out to all shareholders yearly and then that person pays taxes on those proceeds.

    We win simply because the entity so many defended for one day had to cave. I don’t know if I am willing to eat there as often as I did before all the brouhaha because I know the profits quietly get split up to the Cathy family and we know they won’t change their stance.

  51. 51
    The Populist says:

    @patroclus: It’s not hard for the company to back off. As either an LLC or S-Corp the profits go straight to the Cathy family who will more than likely continue giving to these hate groups.

    The company is basically a legal entity in which the Cathys make millions yearly. The family can’t say it so they had the real estate exec say it. If Cathy said it out loud he’d be lying simply due to the fact that they will privately give the money to these entities.

    The Populist says:

    Now that I think about it the RE exec laid out this news. He has to deal with franchisees of which many are in blue states now (thanks to massive expansion). I wonder if the franchisees pressured the company into this stance?

    Think about it, at McDonald’s the franchisees have the power. I can see it here too. Without new franchises, CFA stagnates.

    Results, Bitchez. Sure, who trusts them and who cares about some shitty-for-your health chicken?

    But the symbolism – powerful. And get it straight, folks, they didn’t cave thanks to any boycotts.

    You wanna guess how many employment practices liability claims they were getting ready to have to face? And guess how many insurers wanna write that business? I’m gonna say none. No insurance, a record of discriminatory activities? They would have eaten a lot of shit sandwiches, and all of it out of pocket.

    I am sorry that people lost jobs, and as fast food goes – they and in and out are the gold standard for employee compensation – and both of them are fundi nut run places.

    look, I sure as hell don’t think running a register at a fast food joint is life long work. I worked at a burger king for about 3 months myself.
    But it’s a gig that should pay for food, clothing, shelter and health care, and leave enough to have a phone and cable and an apartment where there’s a pool and a workout room.
