Alderman Flip-Flops Again on Chick-fil-A

A Chicago alderman once again is threatening to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in his Northwest Side ward because of the owner’s stance against gay marriage — after saying earlier that he had dropped his opposition to the fast-food outlet.

Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno, 1st, accused Dan Cathy, president of the family-owned restaurant chain, of reneging on his company’s apparent promises to issue a statement vowing to treat people of all sexual orientations with respect and no longer allow the company to contribute to groups that oppose gay marriage.

In the words of Joe Biden:  Ald. Moreno was against Chick-fil-A before he was for it.

What an idiot.  All you had to do Alderman was keep your mouth shut and you wouldn’t have any of these issues.  You wouldn’t look like a fool changing your mind every two minutes and trying to blame someone for lying to you.  Stop it.  It makes you look clueless and weak.  What are you eleven years old?


Chick-fil-A Wavies 1st Amendment Rights

Chick-fil-A has pledged to stop giving money to anti-gay groups and to back off political and social debates after an executive’s comments this summer landed the fast-food chain smack in the middle of the gay marriage debate.

The Civil Rights Agenda, which dubs itself the largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy group in Illinois, said Chick-fil-A agreed in meetings to stop donating to groups such as Focus on the Family and the National Organization for Marriage. Such groups oppose same-sex marriage.

WT…?!  Why?

Everyone please note how the Left does not wish to openly discuss issues of public disagreement — No National Discourse will be held.

Opposing opinions will be silenced by any means necessary.

I fully support Chick-fil-A giving money to any political cause it likes.  I don’t have to eat there.

I fully support Progressive Ins. giving money to any leftest cause it likes.  I have have to buy Ins. from them.

Warren Buffet = Geico.  Don’t have to buy their ins. either.

Sheldon Adelson runs the Sands Casino group and gives a lot of money to Romney.  You don’t have to gamble at a Sands owned hotel.

I could go on.

But badgering people over and over and over and over and over and over until the have to submit to political correctness does not server the public good.  The solution for bad speech is not no speech but MORE speech.

If you disagree with me, fine.  Be polite, state your case.

I disagree strongly with what you say,
but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

This Civil Rights Agenda stands for anything but.  It’s evil.
