Leftists just launched another anti-Christian attack on Chick-fil-A
Chick-fil-A is one of the radical Leftists’ favorite targets.
It’s a successful capitalistic company that upholds Christian values.
So when Chick-fil-A opened a new restaurant in the leftist bastion of New York City, liberals flipped their lid.
In 2012, leftists launched a boycott of Chick-fil-A for what they called its “anti-gay” policies.
That strategy backfired in a big way as former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee initiated “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” which some estimates say increased sales by 30% on average.
Leftists are still holding onto their grudge.
The New Yorker published an article titled, “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City,” in which they rip the fast food giant for what it represents.
The New Yorker writes:
New York has taken to Chick-fil-A. One of the Manhattan locations estimates that it sells a sandwich every six seconds, and the company has announced plans to open as many as a dozen more storefronts in the city. And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays. Its C.E.O., Dan Cathy, has been accused of bigotry for using the company’s charitable wing to fund anti-gay causes, including groups that oppose same-sex marriage. “We’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation,” he once said, “when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ ” The company has since reaffirmed its intention to “treat every person with honor, dignity and respect,” but it has quietly continued to donate to anti-L.G.B.T. groups. When the first stand-alone New York location opened, in 2015, a throng of protesters appeared. When a location opened in a Queens mall, in 2016, Mayor Bill de Blasio proposed a boycott. No such controversy greeted the opening of this newest outpost. Chick-fil-A’s success here is a marketing coup. Its expansion raises questions about what we expect from our fast food, and to what extent a corporation can join a community.
Still, there’s something especially distasteful about Chick-fil-A, which has sought to portray itself as better than other fast food: cleaner, gentler, and more ethical, with its poultry slightly healthier than the mystery meat of burgers. Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are inflected with this suburban piety.
Could you imagine if the tables were turned?
What if a respected publication wrote about the “creepy infiltration” of radical Islam and Sharia law?
Would that get the same treatment from the leftwing media?
After all, just consider what’s happening in Western Europe today where “no go zones” are popping up in nearly every major city.
The New Yorker’s disgusting attack against Chick-fil-A is a thinly veiled screed against traditional American values.
