NYC mayor calls for Chick-fil-A boycott; this happens immediately

Chick-fil-A has already been subject to a heightened level of scrutiny in New York City. While over half of the city’s restaurants are rat-infested, the openly Christian chicken shop had been targeted by the city for health code violations within months of opening and was temporarily shut down.

A temporary shutdown is just that: temporary. There’s nothing they can do to permanently prevent people from going to Chick-fil-A, though they can try to put up roadblocks.

So here’s what they’re resorting to: begging. As FOX News Insider reports:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials are urging New Yorkers not to eat at Chick-fil-A.

The popular chicken restaurant is planning to open up a new location in Queens, its fourth to open in New York City.

But the liberal mayor argued that the owners of Chick-fil-A support groups that promote “hate” against gays. 

“Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT,” he said in a statement, according to the website DNAInfo.

“This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love.  It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations.”

He went on to call for a boycott by New Yorkers. 

However, that demand doesn’t seem to be resonating with New Yorkers. As you can see from this video, there’s a line around the block to get in, and the customers interviewed don’t really give a coop about the company’s faith-based values. It’s all about the chicken!

Just an FYI – Chick-fil-A no longer donates any funds to pro-traditional marriage organizations. They went neutral on the issue after liberals protested them years ago.

I’ll conclude with a quote from the people de Blasio and his ilk think they’re helping: the gay people supposedly discriminated against (who keep applying for jobs despite there, interestingly enough). “When people boycott Chick-fil-A, it means I don’t get hours. Which means I don’t get money. Not just me, but ALL of the LGBT employees at Chick-fil-A. Yes, CFA hires LGBT people. No one’s been fired for being gay or coming out.”

Shazam! Another liberal narrative goes down in flames.
