Huckabee Continues Reign Of Douchiness With Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day

We already crowned Mike Huckabee douche of the week for defending the Boy Scout ban against gays, but now he’s going for a twofer by professing his love for marriage-equality-hating Chick-fil-A. On Sunday, the former politico and Baptist preacher announced on his Facebook page that he was organizing a “Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day,”

“The goal is simple: Let’s affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1.

Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.”

What really turns our stomach is that more than 86,000 folks have agreed to tuck into some puritanical poultry, at least virtually.

Mike has also stepped up to explain the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado:

“We don’t have a crime problem, or a gun problem, or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem. And since we’ve ordered God out of our schools and communities, the military and public conversations, you know, we really shouldn’t act so surprised when all hell breaks loose.”

Huckabee’s really been cranking up the right-wing vitriol. Something tells us he’s bucking for a raise from his masters at Fox News.

      Sounds like a good ol fashion “sit-in”; similar to what was done at the Cracker Barrel Restaurants a few years back. Bring on the LBGT family and drag queens.

      Huckabee once authored a book titled “Stop Digging Your Grave With a Knife and a Fork.” It looks like he’s found a loophole — fried food you eat with your fingers.

      Everyone go to the page and report it as hate speech or offensive – maybe the automated FB filters will take it down if there are enough complaints, like what happens to our pages when they mark them as offensive.

      Though it has been reported as not being in response to Huckabee, I have seen something going around Facebook about people having a same-sex kiss day at Chick-Fil-A on Friday August 3. Might be interesting to see if anything becomes of it.

      Here’s some breaking news, Mike; You don’t have to be categorized into the left of the political spectrum to recognize the humanity in stepping up for someone’s civil right to marry their partner. To support “traditional marriage” is simply a sugar-coated way of saying “I don’t know any gay people, and even though I don’t give a shit about them, I don’t want them to get married because I’m an hateful, ignorant person”.

      I got news for you, Mike, we had a sin problem even when God was in the schools and the community, and all hell was breaking loose long before you came along and it will continue to do so long after you’re gone. Shit happens, and it’s not because two people of the same sex love each other and want to live in a committed relationship and all that goes with it. Hard as it is for you to believe, mayhem and other disasters are not created by a giant evil machine fueled by gay sex and abortions.

Michelle Obama pushes healthy foods, so Sarah Palin shows up with junk food for elementary school kids. Chick-fil-A’s CEO reveals the company to be hopelessly out-of-step, so Huckabee celebrates it. Maybe they should nominate that psycho Colorado movie theater shooter for Veep. After all, he’s a big believer in the Second Amendment.

      What a wonderful day for The Honourable President of the United States of America Barrack Obama!

      The Republican Party; have now officially self-destructed on the grounds of homophobia & religious corruption! The Republican Party; have impaled themselves – with a bogus cross! Someone left the door of the asylum ajar — the religious lunatics are loose & they are all in the Republican Party! Religion – is the biggest bully; on the block! Tony Perkins and his The Family Research Council’s opposition to gay rights have landed the outfit onto a list of “hate groups,” like the KKK.

      Mormons are nothing more than homophobic bigots and lustful religious lunatics; who once harvested women … attempting to scrutinize themselves; into eternity – without success!

      Being black, left-handed or being gay is just as natural. It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return … it is something that should be celebrated! If it’s between two guys or two girls — all the better. It takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

      The evil writings in Leviticus 18:22 … against gays – depict: “P” … “priestly rules” & expanded by the pope; homophobes and religious frauds … to attack the gay community and never meant to apply to the public — but to priests. Leviticus was written long after Moses — 600BC.

      There is no scientific evidence to prove any of the cross related bogus elements of christianity and other religions. Our early human ancestors; on this earth … go back more than 6 million years … 5,996,000 years before the Greeks, Romans and the Jews. Christianity is basically a 2012 year old fictional cult.
      In the year 300 AD when Emperor Constantine, who to some was the first pope; went on to fabricate & market Christianity!

      It is written; so therefore it shall be? We are the chosen people? Such a wicked fantasy. To see the religious lunatics manipulate government and our lives is shameful.
      Christianity is a fantasy; which turned out to be one of the most hateful & evil concoctions ever perpetrated on the world.

      While Chik-Fil-A’s bigotry has always been known by much of the LGBT community, it wasn’t something most consumers knew much about. Until recently, their public statements were well-finessed to have this “some of my best friends are gay people” tone that flew under the radar of most, but had dog whistle quality to the haters.

      Now things may get a lot worse. While a big Huckabee-inspired anti-gay showing on August 1st would have great short-term benefits, Chick-Fil-A’s worst nightmare would be to become known as the place the bigots eat.

      It would make a great Craig Ferguson joke. What’s the difference between Chick-Fil-A and a Klan convention? One of them is a place where haters congregate to eat chicken and find Biblical reasons to feel better than minorities, and the other is a banquet at the KKK.

Naturally he supports the “family” b.s. and all who, e.g. close their businesses on Sundays (Hobby Lobby being another culprit). I am personally boycotting Chic-Fil-A (so spelled because they’re too stupid to spell it right) and urge all LGBT people to do the same.

      Whether you like it or not, there are plenty of people who agree with Huckabee, which by your logic means the KKK numbers in the many millions and has lots of public visibility, since apparently every social conservative is a KKK member. Now if you can’t understand how ridiculous that is, you are, like Cam, beyond help.

      @Colin: There are many types of Southern heritages. It is also a southern heritage to be one of the minorities that was lynched. The problem in the classic south wasn’t that everyone was a KKK member, it was that even when those members were identified and brought before a court, there were no minorities on the juries and the majority wouldn’t convict. There were all kinds of excuses made for why these racists had just “always been taught that way” and some of those excuses were the teachings of the churches that thought bigotry was justified in the bible.

      I know there are lots of people who agree with Huckabee, just as there were lots of people who agreed with the majority in the south who thought the racial minorities ought to know their place. Here we are again making the same arguments for the anti-gay bigots, saying it is just how people are taught or what they believe it says in the bible.

      You know how August 1, is supposed to be Chick-Fil-A day? I say all the gay couples go into their local Chick-Fil-A’s and get large milkshakes with two straws and share them and spend like an hour slowly drinking the milkshake, maybe liking whip cream off they companions nose playfully. “No you’re cuter.”
      I think it would be hilarious. Stand in line for ten minutes before finally deciding you just want a large milkshake or soda (refills) to split. See if you can’t find a coupon online, or use a student discount. It will be great. All those bigots will have to use the drive threw and with a giant line, people will probably just leave.
      Also take separate cars, just to make parking rougher. Fill those restaurants with homos. Drive those bigots away.
      Don’t make a scene, don’t over react, don’t stage a sit in. Just have a very… slow… meal. The business model is based on turn around. We sabotage that, their business is crushed.
      And remember, if there is two in your party sit at a table for four. You’re trying to ruin the restaurants day. And don’t feel bad for the employees, they don’t get tips.
