Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee invites you and your heteronormative family
to join him for some good old fashioned gay hatin’ to dine at Chick-fil-A today in support of the 1st Amendment. Over 600,000 lovers of homophobic chicken have RSVPed to the event (black tie optional) via Facebook.
Like Huckabee himself, the goal of Chick-fil-A appreciation day 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,” reads a statement on the Facebook page.
Huckabee blasts the left for their “vitriolic attacks” and “vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry.” See what he did there? Christians are the victims, not gays! He continues: “If Christians affirm traditional values, we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.” You said it not me, Huck. (Disclaimer: Mike Huckabee’s words have in no way been taken out of context, except when they have been.)
As expected, Sarah Palin took the time to crawl out of her den to share some hyperbolic wisdom with Greta Van Susteren last night:
Well, that calling for the boycott is a real—has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights. And the owner of the Chick-fil-A business had merely voiced his personal opinion about supporting traditional definition of marriage, one boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married. And having voiced support for kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time, he then basically getting crucified.
Yeah, guys, marriage hasn’t changed since the beginning of time, so stop trying to to force your values on everyone else. And be nicer to Dan “Guilty as Charged” Cathy! After all, he and his chicken operation won’t be happy unless the gays remain second class citizens and women “stay home” to care for their children, according to a rather timely lawsuit alleging wrongful termination based on gender discrimination.
