Don't Go to Chick-Fil-A, Mayor De Blasio Tells New Yorkers

May 5, 2016

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials are urging New Yorkers not to eat at Chick fil-A.

The popular chicken restaurant is planning to open up a new location in Queens, its fourth to open in New York City.

But the liberal mayor argued that the owners of Chick fil-A support groups that promote "hate" against gays.

Is that the new job of left wing politicians? To do their best to ruin private businesses that do not conform to the Liberal agenda. I guess Obama started this when he told democrats what news stations they were allowed to watch, and not allowed to watch.

Every time I go to Chick-fil-a I see diversity, inclusiveness, and love. The mayor would really enjoy the chicken strips with a frosted lemonade.

I think it's time for people to drop the Chick-Fil-A complaints about being anti-gay.

They used to donate heavily to multiple groups which were anti-gay.
Today? It looks like the only remaining complaint is regarding donations to Fellowship of Christian Athletes which includes a condemnation of both pre-marital sex and homosexual sex for its members.

They're a private group, so people can choose.
IMO, it's no more of a problem than private donations to BSA back when they excluded gays.

Unfortunately, some people still have a bone to pick with them...

Like always, the protest against CF backfired. Sales in their NY restaurants are sky-high with long lines. There's also plans to open 12 more in the city.

The protest against CF resulted in CF removing their donations from the anti-gay groups.
That's not a "backfire".

And there are even examples of some areas flipping the other way.

The major needs to keep his big mouth shut and let the people decide on where they want to spend their money.....

Fast-food style but the food itself is a notch or two above typical fast-food fare.

I did enjoy those brief moments when right-wingers pretended to be heroes by buying a chicken sammich.

Also I remember that douchenozzle harassing a worker at a Chik-Fil-A drive-thru. Wonder where he is now, hopefully flipping burgers because karma.
