Chick-fil-A More Popular Than Ever, America Eating Its Feelings And Morals

Chick-fil-A, despite being lambasted nationwide for president Dan Cathy’s vigorous anti-gay stance and the company’s history of donating to homophobic organizations, is not starving for any attention.

ABC News reports:

The number of people who said they visited Chick-fil-A in the “past month” increased 2.2 percent, according to a third quarter study by chain restaurant market research firm Sandelman & Associates’ Quick-Track study. The research firm conducts research for all major fast-food chains in U.S. media markets.

President of Sandelman & Associates, Jeff Davis, said the fowl flack ” brought Chick-fil-A to the forefront of peoples’ minds,” though he admits the chain’s increased popularity is unusual for a company with such negative publicity.

But as Chick-fil-A has demonstrated for ages, you simply can’t account for taste. And isn’t this really good news in disguise? All the people who support Chick-fil-A have clearly started eating a ton of it, which will lead to a future of clogged arteries and mobility restricted by moto-scooters.

Revenge, much like waffle fries, is a dish best served cold.

    They’ll just keep dying younger and younger, they’re handing us the match point by attrition but I want these violent bigots to see their absolute defeat, when they’re crying into their browsing chariots they can die knowing they lost, and they deserved too.

  • FStratford

    And they won’t have Medicaid, Medicare or insurance coverage because they are uninsurable. That would be Ironic.

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

    It’s becoming abundantly clear that in American political discourse, hate will always win.

  • LaTeesha

    Chick-fil-A: Run by a crappy dude. Serves crappy food. There’s a reason this chain started out in mall food courts. It’s lousy food.

    You prefer to eat fries (regardless of shape) *cold*? You’re the only one.

    @Mr. Enemabag Jones: It isn’t true, time has shown that the bigots always lose, we aren’t in danger of heading into another dark age, there are too many of us intelligent, literate and moral people in power all over the world for them to roll back the clock completely.

    Every step humanity has taken forward, from fighting the south, to the Kaiser, to the Nazi’s to the militant Communists they’ve always lost in time. Here in the UK we aren’t bound by the monarchy and owned by lords anymore.

    Women can vote and are nearly of equal standing, the same for the black community, every time they’ve took the fight to us the moralist people have always won, and we’re winning now.

    In time people will look back and wonder why in 2012 these are even issues anymore, but the fact is they’re losing, they are dying every day and good, honest people are replacing them, the bigots always lose because they aren’t fighting for anything tangible.

    Honestly I don’t buy it. If somebody is anti-gay and they didn’t go to Chik Fil Et, and somebody calls and asked them if they did, they’re going to say yes. Additionally, who commissioned the study…was it by any chance….Chik Fil Et?

    Lets see their earnings report. If they were doing so much more business, the board wouldn’t have tried to diavow what the Owner said.

    That sandwich looks disgusting. Even the bread is greasy. Happy heart disease, bigots.

    Let them keep eating crap and die young while we go to gyms with juice bars and vegan cuisine.

  • Little-Kiwi

    agreed, folks. if in fact this is true and their sales are up we can rest assured that The Nation’s Undesirables and Unfortunates are fast on their way to killing themselves.

    Or in the very least immobile enough to picket anything or turn up to vote.

    ten bucks says Chick-Fil-A will be introducing delivery in the next decade to meet the needs of their target demo.

  • Ann Mason

    Maybe we should stay clear of wishing the worst on the ignorant people who are supporting Chick-fil-A, and just look at the reality of the situation.

    Fast food restaurants pander to people who aren’t very enlightened. What happened here is predictable. That’s all.

  • DuMaurier

    @Shannon1981: I hope those aren’t our ONLY two choices. As I get older I try to eat better, but no way am I going vegan/juice.

  • MK Ultra

    Haha, this is great.
    They are willingly consuming poison!
    And the beautiful irony – they are doing it to spite us!
    Maybe we should start spreading tne rumor tnat the makers of cyanide hate tne gays.

    Type 2 Diabetes is a win? Ironic….

  • Aaron

    Keep in mind while you wish obesity and diabetes on all these people, it’s healthy people who will ultimately pay through higher healthcare premiums. Until or unless obesity gets added as an additional individual premium (like smoking), you may want to chose another fate to wish on your enemies, lest you be the one suffering. :)

    Why do so many of these comments remind me of Aesop’s fables? anyone read, The Fox and the Grapes? We really need to get off the whiney pony, and start providing our own support systems and not worry about the majority of str8s. We will never be like them, they will never ‘like’ us and in the scheme of things, who cares? My only interest is equal rights and not where every business owner on the planet donates his profits.
