Saw this news today and almost burst the seem of my pants:
Had Chick-fil-A once. It was fantastic. Tried the new Popeyes in Worcester. Overrated. To me, this is a great day for the City of Worcester. Of course you knew the second you saw this headline that the butthurts would be lining up since the CEO of Chick-fil-A gave money to anti-gay marriage political groups. A few years back Boston Mayor Tom Menino said that he wasn’t gonna allow them to open up in his city and blah, blah, blah. They ended up telling him to go fuck himself and they opened up restaurants in Peabody, Burlington, Framingham, and Westboro instead, because the people that run those cities don’t mix politics with delicious chicken.
Right on cue, here they are:
Yea, what we need is a more powerful, fascist-like local government that can arbitrarily decide what food people can purchase on the free market. That’s MY KIND of country!!! LOL. The fact that Ellen has a hyphenated last name is the least surprising thing I’ve ever seen on the Internet.
Ummmmm…..isn’t our City Manager…..ya know……….just sayin. If he’s cool with it, then what exactly is the problem?
Cool story bro. We were all wondering what you were going to NOT eat for lunch. Now we know. How will they ever survive?
Hate? Look, Turtleboy has NEVER had a problem with gay marriage. We’re not one of these Obama/Hillary progressives who only came around on the issue after Maclemore won a Grammy. We’ve never had a beef with it. If two dudes or two chicks wanna get married, Turtleboy could care less. None of our business. But we know a lot of people that don’t want gay marriage, and as misguided as we believe they are, they’re certainly not hateful. They’re just not thinking rationally.
But this is the shit we HATE. We HATE when people label speech and opinions they disagree with as “hate” speech. It’s just such a cheap cop out and it’s meant to end a debate instead of discussing it rationally like adults.
But Josh, do ya know what you could have as a side with your chicken? Greek yogurt parfait or Hearty Breast of Chicken Soup. Find me another chain restaurant with that on the menu. You can’t.
And that’s why this is all ridiculous. Chick-fil-A is here to serve us food. Good food at that. Since when did we start giving a shit what the politics of a chain restaurant’s CEO’s are? When you go into McDonalds do you ask Grimace about what his thoughts on partial birth abortion are? No. Because you went in there for Big Mac. If Chick-fil-A were giving money to Planned Parenthood or doctor assisted suicide would this be a big deal? I mean, there are people who disagree with those things, so that means they shouldn’t be allowed to do business right?
Oh yea, only certain politics should be banned. How silly of me. This is why Massachusetts can’t have nice things. And this too:
Oh for fucks sake. It’s shocking that businesses don’t wanna open up here. Shocking.
And of course Worcester’s favorite social justice warrior moron had to chime in:
This coming from a woman who spits nothing but vitriol whenever the name “Maureen Binienda” is brought up. She’s probably the most hateful person in Worcester, but she doesn’t want a chicken place to open up here because the CEO is a right winger. Makes sense.
Here’s my question – how long until Jumpin’ Joe Petty and Jim McGovern voice their opposition to this? Those two NEVER miss an opportunity to score some SJW points. Then again this appears to have happened with the blessing of Ed Augustus, so it looks like it might be all good in the hood.
The bottom line is we should NEVER let politics interfere with economic expansion. Without businesses opening up here we’re losing out on thousands and thousands of dollars annually in property and business taxes. These can help fund our schools, repair our streets, and protect our communities. But apparently we don’t want those kind of things in Worcester because a fast food restaurant’s CEO doesn’t support gay marriage. This is why Worcester can’t have nice things.
