Americans are showing their support for the Bill of Rights and our basic freedoms by going to Chick-fil-A.
That has to really tick off the Leftists who believe in free speech only if it aligns with their own beliefs.
From ABC News:
People across the country are flocking to Chick-fil-A today, not because of the fast-food chain's chicken sandwiches, but because of its CEO's vocal support of traditional marriage.
Nearly 600,000 supporters signed up to celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day today, which former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee created to counter a boycott launched by gay marriage activists last week after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said he was "guilty as charged" for not supporting gay marriage.
"The goal is simple," Huckabee wrote on the Facebook page for the event. "Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1."
Courtney Clem, 22, strolled over to the Chick-fil-A in Crystal City, Va., to pick up lunch for her entire office and show her support. Clem said she wanted to eat at Chick-fil-A today not only because she supports traditional marriage but because she supports the First Amendment.
"We want to support their right to an opinion," Clem said. "I do support that opinion. And the right. Even if it was an opinion I disagreed with, I'd be here today."
This about free speech.
I'm glad the response has been so incredible.
Chick-fil-A's CEO has a right to his opinion.
The notion that he should be run out of business for adhering to his religious beliefs is chilling.
The Philadelphia City Council is considering a resolution to condemn the company for what councilman Jim Kenney called their "Anti-American attitude."
D.C. councilman Marion Barry tweeted that he does not support "hate chicken," Boston's Mayor Thomas Menino said there is "no place for your company" in his city and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the restaurant's "values are not Chicago values."
The Chicago Republican Party is making a formal complaint against Emanuel today, alleging that the mayor has "broken civil rights laws pertaining to religious freedom and the First Amendment in denying Chick-fil-A a permit to operate its business in the City of Chicago."
This isn't about gay rights.
This is about our precious liberty.
I'm proud Americans are standing up for freedom.
This witch hunt, as witch hunts often do, has backfired.
Menino and Emanuel look like fools.
I'd like to see Obama eat at Chick-fil-A today, and show that he believes in the First Amendment.
Oh, that's right. He doesn't, especially when it comes to the free exercise of religion and oppressing Catholics.
