If the people freaking out about Chick-Fil-A spent a tenth of the energy they waste on actually changing laws there would be legal gay marriage everywhere in America.
But it's much more fun to simply insult a distraction, isn't it? What's wrong--chicken?
Liberals thought the antidote to con hate was to engage them & attack them the same way they act. So they made themselves irrelevant.
Liberals, I say this because you are being fooled: stop with the bullshit, and actually get something done that matters. Stop taking conservative bait. Go around and past them. When all you've accomplished is getting Palin back into the news & assured a massive sales day for Chick-Fil-A, wonder: "WTF am I doing?"
I was unaware Chick Fil-A was the government or made any laws. Oh, they DON'T, right. So again: WTF are you doing? and he certainly is a hateful son of a bitch. But why then spread what he says even further? It's all you've done. STOP. WHO GIVES A SHIT WHAT A BIGOTED SANDWICH PLACE CEO SAYS?
Go and CHANGE THE LAWS. It may be boring but that's actually how it fucking works.Stop letting the Right do what they want: make you waste your time on frivolous symbolic gestural bullshit. I fell for it myself last week. But then I kicked myself hard in the head.
If all my side can do is channel energy that should go to CHANGING LAWS toward the maker of goddamn chicken sandwiches,then what good is it? Chick Fil-A doesn't fucking matter. It really doesn't.
I'm not saying eat their sandwiches. I'm saying you're wasting your energy. What the hell difference does it make what Chick Fil-A's CEO thinks? Use that energy to make him irrelevant instead.
Unless you're really just in it for the fighting, not the goal.
And please, bemoan how much homophobia there is in this country. I assume that too will make you feel better than actually doing the work that changes things. The truth is that you just prefer whining about it on Twitter. Much easier.
Whine, wail, gnash your teeth. And make a rich bigot richer. And what do you think he can do with more money? Fight gay marriage more easily. Especially now that he's an icon to the right, where before he was nothing but just another CEO. ___________________
