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?

Oh, you’ll never guess:

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.

The Thinking Man's Zombie


  1. Does this mean that I *don't* have to boycott Cook Out? Please say I don't have to boycott them because DAMN are their chili cheese fries just AWESOME! Once in a blue moon awesome but still awesome.

    1. I wouldn't eat anything at a place where the cook and service people made it plain they are angry with me. I don't understand that family placing an order after all of that. And I quit shopping at Target.

      1. See, now, I wouldn't visit THAT Cook Out location. So, limited boycott I suppose. Then again, I have the original Cook Out down the street from someplace I go frequently.

    2. Generally speaking, I find food to be apolitical, except for BBQ. (Blue states can't. Some red states can't either. It's inconclusive.)

      1. Oh, I agree. My BBQ must be a certain way. Although now that I get to experience Red State BBQ, I find that I prefer BBQ that I usually got in a Blue State.

        Is that Heresy? IDK

        1. If, like me, the best BBQ you can get nearby is Famous Dave's, consider relocating.

        2. I have to drive three hours for Famous Dave's. The local "OMG BBQ!" place, Stamey's, was, well, vinegar-y. Me no likey vinegar BBQ. Meh.

    1. It's quite astounding when you stop and think about Pretendy Land, DUMBFUCKS seem to believe that "all Republicans want to see gay people beaten to death."

      But in reality the only instances where you see words to that effect strung together is when DUMBFUCK progressives who spend most of their time in Pretendy Land write or say them in order to attribute them to imaginary HATEFUL, INTOLERANT, CHRISTIAN RIGHT WING NUT JOBS that exist only in their satirical Pretendy Land imaginations.

      1. Years ago the sister I no longer speak to informed me that "The only reason Republicans don't want to pay higher taxes is that they don't want their money going to help poor brown people." After I picked my jaw up off the floor I told her that that was one of the most bigoted things I had ever heard, and as I had never, ever heard it from any Republicans how did she come up with it. She informed me that of course no Republican politician would ever say it out loud, it was just what they were thinking.

        She's never been able to tell me how she knows that they think it if they never, ever say anything like it.

  2. "Red State BBQ" or "Blue State BBQ", it makes no difference, because the ONLY REAL BBQ is Texas BBQ!!

    Oh and Kansas City BBQ, they are 2nd best.

    I am not surprised by Chik-Fil-A, because they demonstrate the true Christian compassion. As I am not surprised by the Liberals at that BBQ joint, because Liberals are most intolerant bunch of racists that you will find.

    And to show you how great Chik-Fil-A is: the restaurant just down the street from where I work became the busiest site in the nation, and because of the traffic, last summer they had closed down for 6 mths to remodel and expand. And during this 6 mths shutdown they did not lay off one worker! They not only paid their employees and but they maintained their benefits and gave them raises!
    That is a true company that has compassion and values their employees.

      1. I have tried BBQ all over this country, and although Pork is not bad, Beef is the best.

        1. On this we may have to maintain a friendly disagreement, but I will not question your experience; it's probably greater than mine.
