Following the huge success of Chick-fil-A appreciation day, a butt hurt left is trying to make sense of all the “hate.” For awesome pics of packed Chick-fil-A’s from all over these great United States, check out Twitchy. Throughout the day, their defense has morphed in to this self-righteous response mirrored by singer Ryan Adams.
Yes, the families taking to the streets of suburbia to stand for free speech are now being compared to those opposed to civil rights — typical. If only the lefties making such a ridiculous comparison studied history, they’d know it was the Democrats who opposed civil rights, but facts are stubborn things.
A handful of conversations I had yesterday concerning Chick-fil-A appreciation day reminded me just how narrow minded the leftist establishment chooses to be. They just knew the masses flocking to scarf down fried chicken were motivated by hate and bigotry. My attempt to explain that the chicken rush was instigated solely by government overreach and a desire to stand for free speech were in vain, because HATE!!1! Mind you, no one I debated bothered to talk to any of the chicken lovers, but by golly, they would swear on their mother’s grave those hate mongers were anti-gay!
To the left it’s completely inconceivable that the majority of Americans want government to go away and leave them alone. You see, it’s impossible to view government as an enemy when it’s what you idolize. Furthermore, entrenched leftists cannot fathom a world where people aren’t parsed out in to little identity factions that can be pitted against one another. If there’s a disagreement or difference of opinion, the only logical explanation is hate. In their warped little world, no one is allowed to disagree or dissent. The notion that the “big tent” right disagrees with one another ALL the time is unfathomable to the homogenized lefty. Also beyond comprehension is the fact that we can disagree with each others beliefs or opinions and gasp! still be friends!!!
I explained that leftists boycott things all the time and are met with little to no response. The fact that thousands of people across the country turned out to pay for goods in protest is certainly an indicator that there’s more at play here than a marriage debate. But again… HATE!!!1!!!1
I tried. Tried to explain our point of view. Wisdom dictates you don’t argue with a fool, I get that, but the truth is the truth regardless of whether it fits into the narrative box… unfortunately, that’s not something the majority of the left is willing to accept at this juncture. So in the mean time, I’ll just enjoy my waffle fries and continue to sow the seeds of truth. You never know which ones will stick. Plus, for the sake of my tentative children, someone needs to be telling the truth. God forbid the left write our story for us. Did I mention I really love waffle fries?
