Chicken**** – On the Left’s Hypocrisy and the Right’s Reason
The President of Chick-Fil-A expressed his personal views on a radio show and created a media storm. Since then, the Mayors of Chicago and Boston have said he’s not welcome.
Perhaps Rahm Emmanuel should listen to another interview, in which his newly chosen nemesis says that he’s opening three stores in Chicago and possibly four more.
Or perhaps the Mayors of Chicago and Boston should listen to the ACLU and the Mayor of New York.
I’ve been to Chick-Fil-A’s, and I’ve found them to employ all sorts of minorities, many teenagers, and been closed on Sundays. Walmart closes only one day a year: Christmas.
Chick-Fil-A doesn’t seem to discriminate against anybody, in hiring or service. There’s No Beef!
I suppose that the Democrat Mayors wish to make a political point, but they would deny a corporation that provides employment to all they otherwise state they would support.
On the other hand, Amazon ($2.5 million) and Microsoft executives (two, at $100,000 each) have supported gay marriage in Washington State, and I don’t see any Mayors or politicians on the Right calling for a boycott of their products.
Despite what they say, the Left is against free speech and the Right is for it.
