Chick-fil-A clucks

19 Nov

This is as dismaying and disheartening as the recent Canadian election results.

Chick-fil-A Surrenders To LGBT Bullies

Why Chick-fil-A’s Surrender Matters

Chick-Fil-A & Thomas More

Well, I guess they will find out whether backstabbing their base wins them any new friends; the Babylon Bee nails it:

Caring only about future ‘shareholders’, not current ones

But they shall find it does nothing to endear them to their enemies who still want to see them destroyed. Already, GLAAD has responded with the expected lack of charity:

As usual, the neo-cons are clueless:

For my part, while I am glad they haven’t capitulated totally – i.e. donating to decidely ‘woke’ charities instead of more or less culture-war-neutral ones, and that they for now are keeping their Sunday closing policy, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before they capitulate on those, too. I ain’t gonna go out of my way to patronize them, and the moment they capitulate further in any way I will be entirely done with them.

Let’s see if they’re smart enough to change course like World Vision did after their initial caving.

I’ll give them a chance, perhaps. But I sure as heck don’t hold out much hope…

    This echoes the convergence of NASCAR. Forsaking the existing audience in favor of chasing one that they will never find.

    As I said over at Dalrock’s, the Cathey Family appears to be in need of a hard and painful reminder of why they’ve been as successful as they’ve been (in other words, WHO has made them successful). If this stupid stunt they’ve just pulled is indicative of what’s to come, they’re going to find out sooner than a whole lot of other businesses that “Get Woke, Go Broke” is a real thing.

    I won’t boycott them just yet, but I’m hoping that they suffer a noticeable drop in sales for the next few days as their base makes its displeasure clear.

      Same; I hope they smarten up like World Vision and, even if they don’t undo this, don’t go any further.
