Open Thread: Did You Eat at Chick-fil-A Today? (UPDATED)
For those who may have been out of the country for the last couple weeks, today is National Support Chick-fil-A Day (so declared by former Gov. Mike Huckabee on Facebook, and gone viral across the Internet). Supporters of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of association are heading to Chick-fil-As all over the country, and I’d like to hear from you: did you eat there today? Why did you do so? Why not? Was it crowded (and where are you)?
I can tell you that my wife and I did go to one here in Woodbridge, Virginia (just south of the world’s largest open-air insane asylum), and we did so specifically to give a Bronx cheer to the liberal fascist politicians who think that they are the sole arbiters of political thought and morality in their jurisdictions. We went at 3:30 pm, and the place was packed, with the drive-in lines wrapped twice around the building. I asked the young lady who waited on us, “how’s business?”, and she just smiled.
How about you?
UPDATE: In the comments, Robert Lundy has a link to a video shot by a moron showing off his tolerance creds by ranting at a Chick-fil-A server. Today, he found out the price he would have to pay for his little tantrum:
The following is a statement from Vante:
Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante and its employees.
What’s that German word that is so expressive of what so many people might be felling upon hearing this news?
Oh, yeah. Schadenfreude.
