UPDATED! Massive Show of Support for Chick-fil-A Sets World Record for Company

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 1, 2012

This afternoon I drove to the nearest  Chick-fil-A to show my support on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.   I had expected a good turnout but nothing like what I saw.  The place was packed, and cars were parked along the curbs and down into a lower lot.  There were two lanes – one going through the drive through and another that circled the building while you waited to get in line for the drive through.

I arrived at about 5:20 PM and drove out at about 6:45 PM.   That was something that I would never have done under ordinary circumstances.  But today was no ordinary day.  Today was a day that Americans stood up and stood with one of their own that was under attack for speaking out and speaking clearly about their values.

As I picked up my order, I asked the young man at the drive-through window if it had been like that all day.    He answered, “Since 6 o’clock this morning.”  And he said that it had been non-stop all day.  They had served so many customers they were worried about running out of food.

Everybody looked cheerful, and some stood in the light rain with umbrellas over their heads as they waited to get inside.  One guy gave me a thumbs up as he crossed in front of my vehicle to enter the restaurant.  It was clear that people had come with a purpose – to show their support.

It is days like these that make you proud to be an American.   The management of Chick-fil-A stood up for traditional values in the face of those who would accept no opinion but their own.  And conservative Americans – which actually represent the majority of Americans – stood with them.  It was a refreshing change from the shameless behaviors of the Occupy movement.

This is what it will take for us to take America back from those who would strip her from her moorings.  This is the type of unity that conservatives and people of faith must show as we prepare for the fight of our life in this upcoming election, the one Sarah Palin has called “the election of our lifetime.”

Speaking of Governor Palin, we know that she had Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands in Texas on Friday and in Paradise Valley in Arizona today.  From the photo is this local article, it looks like Palin-endorsed Martha Zoller stood with Chick-fil-A today also.

UPDATE:

Daniel Halpern at the Weekly Standard reports that Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told Pastor Rick Warren in a phone call 7 hours before the last stores closed that Chick-fil-A had set a world record yesterday.  See a copy of Warren’s tweet here.

There were a lot of photos of the turnout in various Chick-fil-A locations posted on Facebook – I just Shared some of them at PalinECoalition.  Here are some of my favorites.  They were Shared on Facebook by Brenda Battle Jordan, who has a Chick-fil-A photo collection on her Facebook Wall.

Jennifer Jacobs at Iowa Politics also posted this commentary about Governor Palin’s interview with Eric Bolling yesterday:

Sarah Palin says she’s coming to Iowa soon – after she grabs some fries and chicken from Chick-fil-A.

“We’re on our way to Missouri to help out on a campaign and then to Nebraska and Iowa,” Palin told Fox News’ Eric Bolling in a live interview this afternoon, “but today we’re in Phoenix where there’s good Chick-fil-A and can’t wait to eat those waffle fries and spicy chicken.”

[…]

Activists for traditional marriage have turned out in force across the country today in support of Chick-fil-A’s president, who said in an interview last month that he’s “guilty as charged” of backing marriage between one man and one woman.

In the Des Moines area today, more than 3,000 people lined up at the Chick-fil-A at the Jordan Creek mall’s food court, joining in a battle of words and demonstrations over same-sex relationships.

Palin, who was GOP’s vice residential nominee in 2008, has shown her support for Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s comments by posing for a photo holding a bag of the take-out from the fast food chain, and by speaking out in television interviews.

She said on Fox News Tuesday that same-sex marriage supporters who boycott the company put a “chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights.” Cathy was merely voicing support for “kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time,” she said.

Video: Governor Palin and Greta Discuss Cruz, Cheney, RNC, and More

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 1, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin appeared On the Record tonight and talked to Greta Van Susteren about a number of topics. They discussed the Ted Cruz’s victory, Chick-fil-A, traditional marriage, Dick Cheney, and the Republican National Convention. The Governor, I believe, was more vocal than I’ve ever seen her in calling out the GOP establishment and their little inside baseball games, where they seem content to use her as the baseball. Despite it all, as she expressed tonight, she continues to work hard and fight for America’s restoration.

Excellent kick-butt interview:

Gov. Palin Stops By Texas Chick-fil-A

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 28, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Earlier this week, Governor Palin called out Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago-style thuggery for his support of banning Chick-fil-A from expanding there. The owner, with a record of good service, happy customers, and charitable contributions simply voiced his stand for traditional marriage. A politician attempting to bully a private business is unacceptable, but “merely more of the same,” the Governor articulated.

Tonight, Governor Palin addressed an enthusiastic Texas crowd at a rally for U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz. Not long after taking to the podium, she mentioned that she’d stop by Chick-fil-A later to support the business.

As covered by Texas Politics:

Palin also injected herself into the Chick Fil-A dustup over its owner’s support for traditional marriage. “Jason,” she said, talking to an aide, “you’re going to have to take me on our way back to the airport later. We drive [by] a Chick Fil-A. We don’t have that in Alaska. Love me some Chick Fil-A. So, we’ll go there, Jason, on the way, OK?” The crowd cheered.

The article goes on to give a good run-down of Governor Palin’s fiery speech and includes several pictures. See for yourself here.

Chick-fil-A has not only had to deal with Emanuel’s ridiculousness, but has endured the vitriol of others who have no tolerance for those who don’t agree with their worldview. In fact, as Twitchy reported, when Don Perry, Chick-fil-A’s Vice President of Public Relations, died suddenly today, many of these so-called compassionate liberals took to Twitter to spew their hatred and revel in his death.

Once again, one reason I respect Governor Palin is she has the guts to consistently stand up for what she believes in, but she takes it a step further. It’s not just her own interests she looks out for. She stands up on behalf of others who are targeted by the hypocritical left, yet for this tendency to speak the truth she is called “divisive” and “polarizing”–adjectives she should wear as a badge of honor, considering they often come from those who have never in their lives stood up for anything that might cost them acceptance into the good old boys’ clubs for which they salivate.

Governor Palin, on the other hand, isn’t interested in being in anybody’s club, particularly if it shackles her or robs her of her independent spirit. She refuses to sit down and shut up, and she puts her money where her mouth is. A woman of her word, she did drop by Chick-fil-A, and she shared pictures.

Via Facebook, she posted:

Stopped by Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands to support a great business.

Shortly after, she also posted the following on Facebook:

Great to visit with the Sassy Feet dance squad at the Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands, TX.

Governor Palin Calls Out Rahm Emanuel’s ‘Chicago Thuggery’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 26, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

One of the many things I respect about Governor Palin is her boldness. While others cower in corners, she is relentless in her willingness to take a stand and not be bullied. In this regard, as in most others, she is head and shoulders above many so-called leaders on both the left and the right.

With the recent attacks on Chick-fil-A, Todd Starnes touched base with the Governor who called out Rahm Emanuel and his thuggery:

“Chicago thuggery is a scary thing in 2012,” Palin told me. “For its politicians to think they can muscle businesses and shut them out just because they hold a differing, albeit traditional, view on an issue is a scary thing indeed.”

Emanuel said he would support banning the construction of a second Chicago-area Chick-fil-A because the company’s owner believes in the biblical definition of marriage — meaning a union of one man and one woman.

“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” Emanuel said in a statement to Fox News.

Palin balked at the threats to ban the private, family-owned restaurant from the Windy City.

“With a representative of Chicago politics making these threats, I’d be loathe to support any politician hailing from Chicago who supported Rahm and this radical action.”

Palin said the owner of Chick-fil-A is opposed to redefining the traditional definition of marriage — as are most Americans who’ve voted on the issue.

She said President Obama — until recently — opposed redefining the traditional definition of marriage. He evolved on the issue “when it became politically convenient for him to flip-flop around on.”

“Did these protesters oppose President Obama,” Palin asked.

“The leftwing’s double standard with intolerance of other people’s opinions is quite tiring, yet so expected,” she added. “This is merely more of the same.”

Read the full article here.

We already know what the left will say concerning Governor Palin’s comments, but they are wrong once again. This has nothing to do with hatred or bias. It has everything to do with standing up for what one believes and standing against politicians’ intrusion into private business and their intolerance of those who don’t share their perspective. This attack campaign merely provides another example of the blatant hypocrisy in the ranks of the left wing. As Governor Palin pointed out, how interesting it is that the left didn’t withhold their support of President Obama, with whom they are so enamored, who was against gay marriage before he was for it. Even more interesting is how the left hardly has a word to say about the fact that the black community, in large numbers, still does not–and will not–support gay marriage; that never seems to draw much criticism, either. I wonder why that is. Could they be afraid that their number one tactic will work against them? Calling out the black community might make them “racists.”

“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” Emanuel said. Well, they are the values of a vast majority of Americans, and people do not take kindly to being pushed around by a Chicago–yes, she said it–thug. Good on you, Governor, for calling it as it is.
