The Far-Left Re-Ignites its War on Chick-fil-A

Far-left students at the University of Georgia are clamoring for the university to remove Chick-Fil-A from the university premises, accusing the extremely popular fast-food restaurant of being a “white supremacist, imperialist, capitalist cult”.

Chick-Fil-A is also being accused of “exemplifying violence” due to the fact that it ostensibly uses unsustainably-sourced poultry for its meals, thus contributing to climate change by increasing greenhouse gas emissions. Other accusations include offering “demoralizing and difficult” factory jobs to people of color and immigrants in low-income communities, polluting the environment with its factories and using non-compostable packaging in the on-campus restaurant.

Additionally, the students who started the whole uproar are dragging up the old accusations that the restaurant engages in gender and LGBT discrimination simply because its owners embrace the traditional definition of marriage as being a union of a man and woman.

The students behind the accusations are members of the Athens Earth Strike Group, an environmental group with ties to socialist Democrats. Its demands are unclear, as one news outlet reported that the students are asking Chick-Fil-A to show its commitment to bettering the environment by discontinuing the use of Styrofoam cups, keeping its promise to serve hormone-free chicken at its restaurants and end factory farming — while at the same time, other sources note that the students want to kick Chick-Fil-A off the UGA campus for good. The restaurant did announce that it would stop using chickens raised in cages and instead purchase antibiotic-free chicken raised in barns but students rejected the overture, labeling it a “cheap marketing ploy”.

This isn’t the first time that Chick-Fil-A has been attacked by left-leaning activists. The chain was labeled a “cult” in 2007 by Forbes simply because Chick-Fil-A restaurants have a policy of closing on Sundays to allow workers to attend church. Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy was skewered by the mainstream media years later when he announced that he believed in the traditional definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman. Late last year, Rider University in New Jersey refused to allow Chick-Fil-A to open a restaurant on its campus even though the majority of Rider University students wanted a Chick-Fil-A there. The reason given was that Rider University did not agree with Chick-Fil-A’s “corporate values.”

Nonetheless, Chick-Fil-A probably has more supporters than haters. A number of University of Georgia students voiced support for the restaurant. Erin Cooke, a UGA student who worked at Chick-Fil-A in the past, reported that the company culture was not wasteful in the least. She also noted that Chick-Fil-A is the most popular restaurant on the campus, and that there would be an uproar from the student body if activists were successful in getting it kicked out. Devon Spiva, another UGA student, said he found Athens Earth Strike Group’s demand to be ridiculous, especially given the fact that the University of Georgia itself missed its own sustainability goals by miles.

Universities are meant to be educational institutions where students learn the skills they will need to find gainful employment upon graduation. Unfortunately, many university students don’t seem to remember the reason they are there in the first place, and are instead using their time to harass those who don’t agree with their politically correct views.

The fact that Chick-Fil-A refuses to be politically correct naturally angers left-leaning liberals who feel that no-one should be allowed to eat at a place that doesn’t wholeheartedly embrace gay marriage, fluid and multiple gender identities and organic chicken. While the Athens Earth Strike Group is perhaps one of the first student groups to try to kick an existing restaurant off campus for a variety of nonsensical reasons, there are plenty of other left-leaning organizations that are going out of their way to make life difficult for companies that don’t agree with them politically.

The move to demonize and ostracize corporations that don’t adhere to a far-left standard is a dangerous one in a nation that is supposed to embrace freedom of religion, thought and speech.

  1. How many other “wack headed” groups are going to get press and publicity for their senseless demands and actions? Isn’t it time to take and put them back in their place (safely tucked away)? Their accusations and “solutions” have no merit and grounds to even be considered. As a nation, America needs to get its head on straight, follow its laws (based on a long history of being effective) and begin to reasonably (not according to the far left) deal with the problems at hand. It’s time to stand up and be counted!

  2. UGA should tell the idiots that they have the right to eat where they want to, but they do not have the right to have a popular restaurant removed for political reasons.

    • Cancel theuir tuition and housing, kick them off campus and tell mommie to come pick them up.

      SHE RAISED THEM TO BE STUPID, and WE, THE TAXPAYERS should not support any part of their crybaby attitudes.

      Locate the INDOCTRINATORS ON CAMPUS and file criminal charges for MALFEASANCE OF OFFICE for shoving socialism instead of the SUBJECT MATTER the students originally signed up for.

  3. Don’t these students know where there food comes from.Without farming of animals that feeds us we would all starve to death.Without farming grains, fruits, and vegetables how we are supposed to live.I can see the environment thing without recycling it will be devastating to each and every community.
    .

  4. Land of the free and home of the brave? Brave people take a stand for what they believe but do not persecute those with different views. How undemocratic to attack an establishment that reflects the values of many because a few ridiculously don’t agree! The left is not the majority and will never be! The UN-left have the same rights! Don’t take away everyone’s liberties just so things are as you like it. Shame on all of you for persecuting American citizens for their using their constitutional rights to exist and be!

  5. Too bad we can’t go back to the time when most stores and businesses were closed on Sunday! It would make our country a better place, especially if people would attend church.

    • Unfortunately, SUNDay is the FIRST Day of the week and NOT the Seventh Day which is The Sabbath of The Lord. SO IF You keep SUNDay you have a couple of MAJOR Problems… 1st, You are committing a SIN for which 2nd, YOU are NOT Repentant MEANING 3rd YOU are going to HELL!

      So NOW what? The 4th COMMANDMENT (NOT a Suggestion) is REMEMBER The Sabbath to keep it Holy! The SABBATH is Friday Sunset to Saturday Sunset NOT SUNDay, the Venerable Day of the SUN (NOTICE that is NOT Son).

  6. Dumb college students that need to try and pull their heads from their behinds! They are being indoctrinated and to stupid to realize it! We The People need to take back our schools in a big way in this country!

  7. After 13 years (K – 12) of public education, which is lefty indoctrination, college students have no common sense or wisdom. 4 more years of propaganda by socialist/communist professors, seals their fate as being more ignorant when they leave college than they may have had when they entered.

  8. The University should declare the group PERSONNA NON GRATA and kick them off campus.

    IF they complain, EXPELL THEM FROM THE ENTIRE GEORGIA HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM with no refunds for ANY UNUSED facilities or Tuition.

    Let the families deal with WHAT THEY RAISED!

  9. Well these protesters can walk to patronize any other restaurant they chose, or just keep walking away. There is nothing wrong with Chic- Fil-A. I will eat there today just because of this article. Time to rise up call these “democratic socialists” what they are, immature kids that know nothing about the dangers of socialism. It doesn’t work in the real world. That is a proven fact.

  10. Who are these disgusting people? Names please and pictures. Would love to see what idiots look like. Hey liberals nuts get a job or go back to your mommy’s basement. Big surprise coming your way soon.

  11. Ask if those “Athens Earth Strike Groups” if they have ever tasted chicken from Chick-Fil-A. I have heard normal left and right citizens praise Chick-fil-A as the best tasting chicken they have ever eaten. They say it does not taste like “fast food”, not greasy. Also it is served by nice, friendly, respectful young people. Maybe Chick-Fil-A could identify them and hand out bites to them to taste, like the food court restaurant in the malls.

    We know the reputation of Chick-Fil-A, so let’s stand up against these people who want to destroy a great eating place just because they disagree with their politics. Don’t let them destroy a place that the majority of people enjoy eating at. It is easier for them just to eat somewhere else.

  12. These liberal leftists may be calling to ban Chc-Fil-A’s Constitutional right to freedom of religion. Everybody discriminates every day , between something good and something bad. These leftists do too. they are doing it by what they think is wrong. The problem is what they think is right may be what I consider to be wrong. Being discriminate can be a good thing if not carried to their extremism and they are being radically extremist.

  13. Sadly, most of these so called students, once they “graduate” won’t be qualified to work in a Chick-fil-A. But they will no doubt be highly qualified to teach University. Pray for our country.

  14. Psst: Just spread the word that Chick-Fil-A sandwiches are really great aphrodisiacs and great for hangovers and watch the Leftists clamoring for the sandwiches!

  15. “Eat mor chikn” says the cow!

    I never ate at Chik-fil-a until the left started its attacks on its Christian owner. Now I stop in and patronize their fine estabishment. I thank the left wingers for making me get off of my butt and patronizing Chik-fil-a. I really enjoy the chicken sandwiches and the waffle fries. I never would’ve gone into a. Chik-fil-a if it wasn’t for them. Not only do I thank you for introducing me to Chik-fil-a, but I’m sure that Chik-fil-a thanks you too for expanding their customer base and sales. Keep up the good work!

  16. There is only one answer to dealing with the liberal dem bloodsucking parasites.Talk isn’t, it is apparent almost all of the intelligent people the liberal scum are going to have to be removed from the USA

  17. These immature children are just a bunch of spoiled know nothing kids. If they want something gone it’s simple, just don’t go there but obviously not everybody agrees because they restaurant would not be there if they had no customers, Thank goodness some people have some sense. Bye he way isn’t this supposed to be the land of the free. Just saying.

  18. As I have said many times I am willing to contribute money for airline tickets to send liberal Democrats to Venezuela. Once there they can show us how Socialism is done to better mankind. Then, and only then will I ever listen to the dribble coming from the left.

  19. WHERE IN GODS NAME ARE THESE COMPLAINING STUDENTS AT UG COMING FROM? ARE MOST OF THEM FROM THE SOUTH OR FROM THE NORTH.
    IRREGARDLESS, I FEEL SORRY FOR THE COMPLAINERS SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING INDOCTRINATING BY THEIR PROFESSORS WHO WERE THEMSELVES INDOCTRINATED BY THEIR PROFESSORS.
    IT WORRIES ME THAT YOUNG STUDENTS ARE THIS CULLIBLE AND THEIR MINDS ARE SO EASILY WARPED. I SUPPOSE IT ALL BEGAN AT HOME WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG LIVING WITH MOMMY AND DADDIES WHO WERE LIBERALS.
    LEAVE IT BE KIDDIES. THIS COMPANY IS WELL WITHIN THEIR LEGAL RIGHTS TO CONTRACT WITH THE UNIVERSITY TO SET UP A CHICKEN STORE.
    BY THE WAY, THEY HAVE THE BEST CHICKEN AVAILABLE ANYWHERE AND MY WIFE AND I SHOP THERE FREQUENTLY.

  20. Students of today are nothing more than mindless idiots………They want to destroy the USA and companies that will close on SUNDAYS…..Too bad they did not go to school to learn history, english, math, etc. etc, instead of thinking that their chaotic marches are worth 2cents….They have only proved they are mindless idiots……

  21. Are we back to this again? What the heck is wrong with these people? Better yet, what is wrong with the people who raised them? There’d be no school money for my kids if they pulled this crap. You don’t like it? Eat somewhere else! You’re there to get an education, not decide what people can or cannot eat. Their parents should be ashamed of themselves.

  22. Companies targeted by left hate groups can hire private investigative firms specializing in radical organizations. Among the tactics in an old PI’s bag of tricks is: the ability to get lists of protester’s parent’s names and phone numbers. Call them up and ask why aren’t they good parents?, ask if they rather see their kids with whole heads or broken heads. Amazing how many don’t show up after those calls. Another neat trick is to spray goo on them and tell them if they don’t wash it off soon they could be sterilized. The list goes on. . .

  23. How did “We The People” miss the left wing take over of our schools ? Parents, how about advising these young opinionated kids – to leave home and school while they still know everything. Let them support themselves and see what reality is — We allow these brats to live in LaLa Land —the blame lays at our feet

  24. I have a suggestion for you UGA campus liberals.Your newest mouthpiece in congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
    says the world is going to end in 12 years. Find a strong building crawl under a table stick your head between your
    knees and up where the sun doesn’t shine take a deep breath. Now you will be able to smell what we think of
    your liberal politics.

  25. Everybody in America . . . this is a call to action! Call or write or e-mail your Congress folks, both Senators and House of Representatives! It is time for a new law to be passed regarding the issue of people striving to impose their politically correct views on society! Perhaps it is an addendum to the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights . . . that states “No individual, group, or organization will impose their will upon another individual, group, or organization.” People should never lose their jobs because they hold a different political point of view! But that is just what is happening in today’s up-side-down society! Enough is enough and it is time to make a true stand in the face of over-reaching government officials that would allow the murder of unborn babies at the very day of its birth!!! This is Eugenics in every sense of the term and is evil at its core!!! STAND UP AMERICA . . . LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD . . . SPEAK OUT AND SPEAK LOUD . . . ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ! ! !

  26. The intellectual brainless students are at it again. They better worry more about the pollution of their minds and souls by the Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Democrat Party. They are out to drain your freedom and are just using you for their agenda. I have never heard any Christian ministry, Christian Company, school or any Christian ever say people do not have a choice to live the lifestyle they want. It’s your choice but don’t force people to accept or everyone to agree with your choice. Christians do not force anyone to believe in their faith. It is a personal decision that each person has to make for themselves. These students main issue is not with chick-fil-a its with God who someday they will face like all of us.

  27. The problem is :
    Conservative Christians believe in creation.
    Liberals believe they came from years monkeys spitting on the ground until a human evolved.
    Have you ever tried to have a logical discussion with a monkey?

  28. Chick-Fil-A will take money from any Socialist, Democrat, Black, Pink, Conservative, etc. Except on Sunday in most cases, they do feed those responders in times of disaster, usually free. I can see why students would be opposed to them. NOT!

  29. Must be a bunch of chicken chokers. And what is this new Democrat White Supremacy thingy? Are they White people who go to work to the support the moochers?

  30. The time has come to classify this kind of IRRATIONAL BEHAVIOR and ACTIONS by KNOWNOTHING Leftwing BIGOTS as HATE SPEECH, affording their targets a fair way to redress the harm imposed upon them!

  31. Find out who the administrator was at Kent State University . movejhim to Ga. Shoot 10 of these silly c suckers. this crap would be over

  32. Ive read most of these comments! I am appalled with the obvious low character of 99.9% of the posts! Chick fil a is a crappy fast food disgusting company. With a despicable attitude towards ppl. Will not eat their bad food. You should be ashamed! But as low information voters you will be even more like the herd and spew your hatred of others. DJ’s silly comment about “ not knowing ANY religious cult stopping anyone from living the lifestyle they want”. Willful ignorance on full display!!!!!The christian religion is constantly pushing for everyone to adhere to their beliefs! The left is not that stupid!!!! But the conservatives are!

  33. I will not enter a Starbucks because they stated that Christians can stay away if we do not like their anti-Christian Christmas statements. I also do not care for their tolerance for mistreatment of soldiers and police officers.
    If you do not like Chick-fil-a, then please stay away.
    This goes for all who do not like to dine with fine individuals and Biblical people.
