NYC Mayor de Blasio Tries to Force Chik-fil-A Boycott – This Happens Immediately After….
The last time liberals tried to boycott Chick-fil-A, long lines filed through the drive-thru lanes and around blocks, and police were called to manage parking lot traffic jams, setting record sales, but the so-called progressives are at it again.
The Christian company had long been a target for ridicule due to its policy of closing on Sundays, but when the owner made the unforgivable mistake of revealing his belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman in a 2012 interview, the full wrath of the left was unleashed.
Now, as the self-proclaimed “inventor” of the original fried chicken sandwich, expands with restaurants in New York City, it finds itself square in the sights of Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials who are urging New Yorkers not boycott Chick-fil-A.
Mayor de Blasio released a statement claiming, “Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT,” the standard by which all things are judged in today’s New York City.
“This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love. It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations.”
In fact, the chain no longer donates to organizations for the purpose of promoting traditional marriage.
The mayor’s dire warning has not gained traction in a city that knows good food and understands the service industry.
In a statement rich with irony, one gay employee at one of Chick-fil-A’s locations in New York complained, “When people boycott Chick-fil-A, it means I don’t get hours. Which means I don’t get money. Not just me, but ALL of the LGBT employees at Chick-fil-A. Yes, CFA hires LGBT people – no one’s been fired for being gay or coming out.”
So much for the liberal nanny state that professes to know what’s best for everyone.
