With a hat tip to Instapundit contributor Stephen Green –
Everyone who is anyone hates Chick-Fil-A. It only makes sense with their founder Truett Cathy’s hardline Christianity and his hateful endorsement of traditional marriage, and the corporate policy of closing on Sundays to allow their workers to spend time in worship and with family.
Which is why you aren’t going to hear much about this news:
In a shocking move, the Orlando location at University and Rouse Road fired up its grills on Sunday. The chain is notorious for not being open, ever, on the first day of the week. Employees cooked up hundreds of their famous chicken sandwiches. They brewed dozens of gallons of sweet tea.
Then, instead of making a single dime, they carted the product of their labor to the One Blood donation center. The food and drinks were handed out, free of charge, to all the people who had lined up to donate blood.
So far, the only mentions of the incident have been from individuals on Facebook. They have posted photos thanking the restaurant for their thoughtfulness and generosity.
Turns out, that while the founders definitely don’t approve of that choice of lifestyle, they believe in compassion. Who knew? A bunch of people claiming to be Christians care about others even when they don’t agree with them. This group took time out of their schedules to volunteer to help those who were also trying to do their part.
On the other hand, what do you get from the compassionate, tolerant, #LoveWins Left?
COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. — A group of Trump supporters say they were mocked and discriminated against by employees of a popular southeastern barbecue chain Friday night.
Shannon Riggs and her cousins said they expected some push-back from protesters at Donald Trump’s rally in Richmond, Virginia, but they did not expect what happened when they stopped for dinner on the way home.
Dressed in Donald Trump shirts and hats, the family walked up to the window at the Cook Out on Boulevard in Colonial Heights to order burgers and milkshakes.
“As soon as we got to the window, someone inside said ‘Hell no! I’m not serving them,'”Riggs told WTVR.
After a few minutes of discussion behind the window, their orders were eventually taken.
“Everyone was laughing and giggling,” Riggs said about the uncomfortable situation.
At one point, she said, an employee yelled that an order was ready, but when her cousin went to the window to claim the food, she was told, “Oh not for you!”
“You should not be discriminated based on who you support, whether it be Bernie, Hillary or Mr. Trump,” Riggs said.
While the employees laughed, Riggs said, she canceled her order and asked for the number to corporate.
Wolfrey said she did not think the workers should be fired, just talked to and reminded about courtesy.
“They had this sense of anger,” she said. “They were just really rude to us.”
Of course they were. It’s all they know how to be.
It’s worth noting that even after being baldly discriminated against, the customers hired no media consultants, called no press conferences, made no demands for apologies (though the chain did make one), nor did they demand that anyone lose their jobs.
I wonder if that has anything to do with being brought up without an infinite sense of entitlement and a hair-trigger for being triggered without a trigger warning. They also did not appear to have access to a safe space with blankies and coloring books and popsicles where they could hide out until the meanies went away.
They just addressed the situation and moved on. Most lefties I’m familiar with let that butthurt fester and burn instead of moving on like a healthy human being would.
