The fight for Ideological Control of our nation hit a flashpoint this week…as a couple of Liberal Mayors of Northern cities and the Mayor of San Francisco (of course) proclaimed that they would ban the Christian-owned Fast Food Chain, Chick Fil-A, from opening new restaurants in their cities, because their owner Dan Cathey, has voiced his opposition to Gay Marriage.
Rush Limbaugh can’t believe this garbage, either:
What do we have? We have two mayors who are essentially Stalinist, who have had no problem whatsoever — not one problem at all — with going before the microphones and telling an American business, “You are not welcome here. And if you come here, you will be penalized or whatever the h!@l will happen.”
All because the guy who owns the outfit happens to be a publicly professed Christian who believes that “marriage” has a specific definition. Now, this is a classic example of a government destroying an institution that has promoted the kind of society we have had in the past and the kind of society we’ve always wanted. This is a direct assault. That’s a direct assault on Christianity. That is a direct assault on Christians. With economic punishment thrown in including threats from government officials that are in clear violation of the Constitution.
I read about it on conservative blogs, and I can’t believe what I’m reading! I’m reading intellectual treatises on, “Well, you know, they have the right to say these things, and the solution here is let Chick-Fil-A open a store in Chicago and let’s see if the people will visit it.” That’s not the reaction to have! The reaction to have is, “Who the h!@l do you think you are, Rahm Emanuel? Who the h!@l do you think you are? What country do you think you’re in?”
Now, we want to have an intellectual debate here over the First Amendment? “Well, the solution to this is to let Chick-Fil-A open a store”? Yeah, let Chick-Fil-A open a store with the mayor of Chicago threatening anybody who walks into one? Meanwhile, this company hires gays. They serve gays. They don’t discriminate! It’s just that the owner happens to be a publicly professed, witnessing Christian. My God, you would think that he’s the worst enemy Chicago ever had and the worst enemy Boston ever had!
Thirty years ago, if this woulda happened in this country, there would have been an uprising against Menino and Rahm Emanuel — or Daley, or whoever would have done it. Today we get intellectual debates on who’s got the right to do what and say what and say this and do that and do what where. The sense of proportion is all out of whack, and there’s no outrage. So, yeah, I fully understand losing institutions. We’re sitting by, and we are watching, every day, the institutions and traditions that have made this country great come under assault.
Day in and day out.
And I’ve been making that comment for 24 years. Too much of all of this has become nothing more than an opportunity for people to show how smart they are, how open-minded they are when they debate these things. Rather than having an actual, human, real-life reaction to this, which is, “This is outrageous!” The mayor of San Francisco. What is his name? I think his last name is Lee. The mayor of San Francisco got in on this, and he warned Chick-Fil-A, “You better not come here! You had better keep out!”
I am in stunned disbelief.
As usual, Rush is absolutely right. The Republican Power Brokers are just as out-of-touch with us average Americans as the Far Left-controlled Democrat Party is.
They don’t believe, as most Americans do, (and that’s why Reagan won) in the three-legged stool that is Conservatism. They believe that Conservatism can be re-defined to mean whatever they want it to mean…i.e. “fiscal” Conservatism.
This erroneous belief in their own political punditry, masked by incessant political catch phrases and insults toward Reagan or “Social” Conservatives, is the reason why this upcoming Presidential Election has turned into a referendum against Obama, and not a groundswell in support of Romney.
Additionally, I’ve noticed on Political Websites that there are several of his “supporters” who, seemingly, have made it their mission in life to alienate Reagan Conservatives,who believe in God and country.
That’s not a way to garner support for your candidate. In fact, it’s the very opposite of what they need to be doing.
Recently, Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has been campaigning in Texas for Ted Cruz. Gov. Palin has been attempting to fire up Conservatives to get them to come out and vote in November, for Conservative candidates.
And, while he’s not a Conservative, Gov. Palin will no doubt be supportive of Mitt Romney’s Campaign for President of these United States.
That’s all any of us can do, at this point, except stand behind the Conservative principles that Reagan laid out before us, and get the Manchurian President out of our house.
Regarding the Chick-Fil-A situation, America’s Pastor, Reverend Billy Graham, had this to say:
As the son of a dairy farmer who milked many a cow, I plan to ‘Eat Mor Chikin’ and show my support by visiting Chick-fil-A next Wednesday.
Wednesday, August 1st is National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
Go get yourself a sammich and some waffle fries and support this Christian American Business.
Oh….and to those who would rather American Christians go away and keep our mouths shut, and forego our faith for a Godless Political Ideology?
You guys are in for a shock. I’ve read The Book. I know how this ends.
