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.

  • Myles.

    Perhaps he wants Mitt to take notice of his crowd gathering abilities to improve his standing in the vice-presidential sweepstakes.
    Not exactly Michelle,but still in the running.

  • Erik

    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.

    Let the ignorant pigs wallow in their slop.

  • MikeyM

    Douche is right.

  • tazz602

    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.

  • Ron Jackson

    I is difficult to believe that in the good ole USA shit for brains like Huck can keep getting re-elected. We ARE truly lost.

  • Chance

    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.

  • Ryan

    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”.

  • Cam

    His own son was fired from being a camp councilor for hanging, torturing, and killing a stray dog and now Huckabee is having a day of appreciation in support of bigotry.

    What is the difference between him and some Klansman 60 years ago?

  • Adonis007

    & I’ve always loved Chic-Fil-A.. Damn.

  • Elias Meeks

    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.

  • Bob

    What a clown.

  • Mark

    These fucktarded Republicans are just too much. The way they’re DETERMINED to falunt their political incorrectness. 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.

  • JT

    Can we all just dress up like drag queens and go in and order a cup of water just to flatter all those good olde christian good-doers? haha

  • Colin

    @Cam: If you can’t see the difference, that’s incredibly sad. Exaggeration won’t get you anywhere.

  • D9W

    I think we should have “Tell Huckabee to go F*** himself day ;-)”. Then again he might like that


    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.

  • MickeyP.

    Go choke the chicken and choke ON the bone! Ok,not really nice but I couldn’t help it!

  • Frances

    he and son are the same hateful

  • PBCliberal

    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.

  • James M. Martin

    Remember, this hick motherf****r while running for president in the penultimate elections made the statement, “It’s time we started interpreting the Constitution according to Christian principles.” You get theocracy of the most repugnant sort with the Gomer Shuckabees of this world. 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.

  • mike ramon

    Ya huckabee, like if there is a supreme being he is going to take orders from puny humans, you need to get your giant head out of your, even more giant ass, and realize the higher ups don’t take orders from the lower downs. I hear you got on your scales and when it hit 300 it said “to be continued……”

  • WAM

    This is good news. Let the Mr. Huckabee convince the Baptists to gorge to their cholesterol-choked hearts content. Chick-Fil-A, bless their hearts, are enlisting the rapture-right and in so doing making them prime candidates for massive coronaries.

    Carry on, Mr. Huckabee!

    P.S. You’re fat.

  • Marty

    The only time I don’t feel like an awful person when I make fun of his messed up retaryed eye.

  • Sam Glass Jr.

    What a shame about Mike. He seemed to be doing okay when he lost all that weight and was on his health and running kick. Now it seems all the fat he put back on went right to his head. So – hooray for you, Huckster-man. Keep right on feeding bull and hormone-and-cholesterol-filled swill to the Right Wing masses. Many of them are going to be “meeting their maker” sooner than later, I would imagine. And YOU…HELPED!!!

  • Jon

    To me, his new name is FUCKABEE!

    If the right wingers could only use their energies for making a positive difference in all peoples lives instead of wasting their time on misguided bullshit!

  • Rich

    @WAM: Huckabee is no more than a demented Baptist Preacher more brain dead than either Baptist preachers Jones or Phelps.

  • WAM

    @Rich: Oh, but Huckabee is SO much more than a brain-dead Baptist preacher! He’s a far-right Republican!

    Oh. I forgot. Tomayto-tomahto. Nevermind.

  • Nicole H

    Maybe he’ll choke on his sandwich.

  • Shane

    Your comments give you away.
    Your comment area is full of hate comments towards anyone that disagrees with you.
    It is a shame. There is room for you at the cross, Accept Jesus while you have breath.
    God loves you and wants you to be born a new creation and be prepared for eternity.

  • Paul

    and hopefully those 86,000 people will eat a lot of greasy chicken, their cholesterol levels will go sky high, they’ll get as fat as hell and they’ll die a premature death. Oh well…

  • Paul

    @Chance: Oh, now THAT would be awesome!!!!

  • Dannyboi2 (@DanyQT)

    I’ve watched this sugary sweet A-hole, He’s pure evil. Sorry a Bible thumb-er and dangerous.
    Middle America loves him and he needs to stop forcing he’s beliefs on others.

  • MND

    @Colin: If you see a difference then you’re as blind as blind can be. Just because you’re some crazy right-winger doesn’t mean your people are nice. HucKKKabee is small step above a Klansman – he was proud of the fact the confederate flag was flown above the Arkansas capitol building during his reign of terror. Karma will come around to scum like him.

  • Jerry6

    Not only is Chic-Fil-A anti Gay, They are hurting Jews by closing on Sunday because Jews Holy Day is Saturday. That leaves them no weekend day to enjoy their products.

  • Colin

    @MND: Wow, so you have a problem with Southern heritage?

    And yeah, there’s a BIG difference between terrorists hiding behind white sheets committing horrid violence and someone who happens to be very conservative. You’re just too thick-headed to notice or care.

    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.

  • PBCliberal

    @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.

  • tjr101

    Ugh, right-wing Republicans are filthy!

  • Jeff

    Who give a shit what Mike Huckabee thinks, he’s nothing but a glorified Fox News douche-bag!

  • Zwirad

    “Star Trek” has “Warp Factor.” With all the stupid Reich Wingers boiling up like mudpots saying ever stupider things, we need to establish a Douche-Factor.
    Based on the same logarithmic scaling we can set a standard. WHO is the highest Douche Factor?
    Douche Factor 9: Huckabee would be likely at the top. Anne Coulter would be up there.
    Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck Douche Factor 8
    Hannity likely a DF 7.

  • MND

    @Colin: “Southern heritage?” You mean their slave-owning, treasonous heritage? You right-wingers really are dangerous. Also, so what if Huckabee is popular among rednecks? George Wallace was once popular too, so I guess his message is also fine by your standards.

    “apparently every social conservative is a KKK member” – I wouldn’t necessarily say that, but they sure do share the Klan’s message on abortion and gay marriage.

  • Colin

    @MND: ““Southern heritage?” You mean their slave-owning, treasonous heritage?” Yes. And then some.

    I won’t even touch your Huckabee/Wallace comment. Red herring, just like with your KKK comments.

    As for this: ““apparently every social conservative is a KKK member” – I wouldn’t necessarily say that, but they sure do share the Klan’s message on abortion and gay marriage.”

    I didn’t realize the Klan was pushing an agenda in the public political arena on abortion and gay marriage. Why don’t you explain it to me?

  • Jon

    @Shane: I don’t hate anyone, but I have have the right to be disgusted by someone’s behavior. I feel Mike Huckabee is a total douche!

  • Dagrlzrd

    I think it is all so silly. Why should anyone care what these religious knuckle dragging morons think. People will think and believe what they want.It is really all a matter of intelligence.Let these disgusting overweight three toed sloths gorge themselves on fast food and stupidity. After all YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!!!The quest for equality is not an easy road. Women are underpaid,people of color are stereotyped and looked down upon,and then there are us Queers. It is a pecking order. We can fight the good fight,change is inevitable. But it won’t be fast like a Roadrunner just mind numbingly slow.Like a snail on downers,lots and lots of downers.100 years from now I hope to be able to hug my partner in public.

  • MND

    @Colin: The Klan has a platform of staunch social conservatism. They are opposed to abortion and same-sex marriage rights. You could look on their website for that bit of information, but based on your defense of all things racist, I’ve got a feeling you’re already ahead of me on that one.

    “I won’t even touch your Huckabee/Wallace comment. Red herring, just like with your KKK comments.” No, just because you can’t defend your stupid comments doesn’t make what I say a red herring.

  • Colin

    @MND: What you’re doing is falsely equating and then demonizing all believers of social conservatism. That is the false assumption that you operate under, and that is inaccurate and wrong. That’s why your outlook is silly and why it’s not worth discussing further.

  • Marjorie 0120

    Did you all hear that Rosanne Barr has tweeted that she hopes anyone who eats at Chick-fil-A gets cancer? That’s a bit over the top if you ask me, but then I watched my youngest brother die from a horrendous brain cancer.

    Comments like these only make the Gay world look hatefilled and ugly.

  • Thomas

    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.
