The other day when we wrote about the Chick-Fil-A coming to Worcester we pointed out how any minute Jumpin’ Joe Petty would be announcing to the world that he ain’t going there because he supports gay marriage:
“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 right on cue he made his announcement to Dianne Williamson today:
“I’m strongly opposed to the money he used to fight gay marriage,” said Petty, referring to Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy. “I’m supportive of marriage equality. So I plan on not going there, correct.”
So let me get this straight. Joe Petty “strongly opposes” giving money to ANY institution that has gone on record in opposition to gay marriage? Is that right Joe? Well here’s some stuff he posted on his Facebook page a couple weeks ago:
Interesting. Stumping for Hillary Clinton. Here’s what Hillary Clinton said about gay marriage while speaking about the Defense of Marriage Act in 2004 when she was a US Senator:
“I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, a sacred bond between a man and a woman.”
Here’s some more facts from the notoriously unbiased Politifact.com, which assesses the truthfulness of things that political candidates say:
In 2007, all the presidential contenders except for longshot candidates — both Democrats and GOP — were against same-sex marriage, the New York Times reported. So were the majority of Americans, polls showed.
As polls showed that a majority of Americans supported same-sex marriage, Clinton’s views changed, too. She announced her support for same-sex marriage in March 2013. It’s up to voters to decide how they feel about her changed stance, but on same-sex marriage we give Clinton a Full Flop.
Oh, I see. So Petty will be boycotting Chick-Fil-A (because we really give a shit where he’s eating lunch) because they once came out in opposition to gay marriage. But yet he has been and continues to support a presidential candidate who has actively used her power and influence to oppose gay marriage on several occasions. Then when Maclemore won his Grammy and she looked around and realized that gay marriage was cool now, she suddenly supports it. Makes sense.
Obviously this makes Joe Petty a HUGE fraud. And what he’ll most likely say is that Hillary Clinton came around on the issue, so now it’s OK to support her. But yet here is a list of congressional endorsements from the 2008 Democratic primary:
You’ll notice that Jim McGovern supported Hillary then, even though her stance on gay marriage couldn’t have been more clear – she was against it. And as you know Jim McGovern = Joe Petty. Because Joe Petty does not possess the ability to come up with an opinion that has not had the full blessing of Jim McGovern. That’s how a crime family works. More awesome leadership from up top.
The purpose of a boycott is to run a business out of business. And here we have our mayor actively encouraging people NOT to do business at a new business. Because apparently our leaders are opposed to economic expansion. They’d much rather have a vacant building, not paying property or business taxes, than a thriving one making delicious chicken. Ya know, because of gay marriage and all.
It’s weird because just a few months ago Jumpin Joe and Ti-ti Ho were cutting the ribbons and posing for pictures at Popeye’s like it was prom night:
The picture of the woman’s face next to Petty is still one of the most Joe Petty things I’ve ever seen:
That face sums up the feelings of pretty much anyone who has ever come in contact with Joe Petty.
And honestly, based on some of the pictures Jumpin Joe has been putting up on Facebook lately, he’s better off staying away from fried chicken joints:
Oh sweet Jesus. Is that guy in the background having an orgasm?
In Dianne’s article today she quoted several people from her Facebook page, even though the Turtlegram’s editor Karen Webber has explicitly made it clear that Facebook is NOT a valid source of information. It’s the reason she wouldn’t publish Dianne’s column about Mosaic, because she wanted to use this Facebook post from Brenda Jenkins’ son Robert Alston:
Anyway, here’s some things that were posted on Dianne’s page:
“There is no place in Worcester for an establishment that openly opposes freedoms that are LEGAL in the State of Massachusetts.”
Well, I guess that means people are no longer allowed to support pro-life causes, since abortion is legal in Massachusetts as well. Oh yea, and gun control groups are banned too. Because guns are legal in Massachusetts. As a matter of fact the only businesses that are allowed to open in Massachusetts are ones that have filled out surveys about their political beliefs and align with Gail Cosky 110%!!
Because we were all wondering where the 10th place finisher in the most recent City Council election would NOT be eating chicken sandwiches.
Yea, our city should never allow people who have opposed gay rights in our city. For instance, Bill Clinton has been to Worcester a million times before and is greeted like a conquering hero. And he has always supported gay rights. Unless you’re a gay guy in the military. Then you have to shut the fuck up and stay in the closet.
And known repeat criminal offender Kevin Ksen had his say as well:
Yea, we need a fascist like Tom Menino running our city, instead some lardo like Joe Petty who only boycotts a restaurant when he should be banning it!!
Seriously though, is there anything more self righteous than announcing that you’re going to boycott a business? As if anyone gives a shit where you will NOT be eating. And what these morons haven’t figured out yet is that all these boycotts do is make the company they are opposing MORE popular. Remember what was happening a year ago at this time?
Since then our audience has increased five fold, we’ve brought on new writers, and we’re regular guests on the Hillman morning show, Bax and O’Brien morning show, and 100.1 FM the Pike. So as you can see, social justice warrior boycotts are HIGLY effective in Worcester.
It all comes back to the Trump factor. We are not a blog that endorses Donald Trump or thinks he is some kind of savior for America. But what Trump has shown the American public is that the more you boycott someone or something, and the more you tell other people that they are “hateful” for supporting that thing, the more they wanna do it. The hippies have made Trump popular, and if they keep this up they will make Chick-fil-A a thriving business in Worcester for years to come.
