The Anti-Chick-Fil-A Kiss-In not worky so well? LOL! As I noted on Fox & Friends this weekend, the approach of punishing people and companies with whom you disagree is fascist, petty and rejected by the American people. I’m all for positive, encouraging activism meant to promote the things we agree with. Apparently that’s a lesson the left can only learn from failure and embarrassment. Let’s make sure liberals all across this country get the exact same message on November 6th.
And yes, as we all know Starbucks as an incredibly blue, liberal company, just like Ben & Jerry’s. Conservatives, however, don’t punish people or companies because of political disagreements. Personally, I’ll drink their coffee while I work to defeat the liberal agenda and leadership. More caffeine please!
Gay marriage activists are planning to swarm Starbucks on Tuesday in an attempt to counter the record sales from last week’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
The chicken chain enjoyed a surge of support during the Wednesday event, dreamed up by former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee after Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy went on the record backing the “biblical definition of the family unit.”
A follow-up protest from Chick-fil-A critics on Friday, which was dubbed Same Sex Kiss Day, was more subdued.
Advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights are trying again Tuesday with National Marriage Equality Day, initiated by Equally Wed, a lesbian and gay wedding magazine. So far, nearly 28,000 people have signed up to attend.
The event was originally called National Starbucks Appreciation Day in honor of the coffee giant, which recently threw its support behind efforts to make gay marriage legal.
But several other holidays exist with the same name, including one created by gun rights groups. Starbucks’ corporate offices had nothing to do with those events nor with Tuesday’s planned gatherings.
