So chick-fil-a openly opposes gay marriage. So what? I like how all these people are all over them for stating an opinion, and cities like Boston (give me a break) are trying to bully them from opening a restaurant there, because of it. Bronan had the only reason you should be boycotting Chick-fil-a, or any food place, and that’s because the food sucks.
So this company now fails to at the very least be silent against what appears on the surface or mainstream to be popular opinion, yet with so many states in America voting no for gay marriage, it hardly seems like it’s actually popular opinion. But there you go. I have no say on the issue, I could care less, I think they should be allowed to be married, because it doesn’t effect me whether they do or not, I don’t care. They should also be allowed to speak up about it, and they have. But so does the other side of the coin, and whether its something you like or not, doesn’t warrant whether you can talk about it or not.
I’m not going to point out the sheer hypocrisy of a city trying to discriminate against a company for it’s discriminating views, that’s too easy, and shows like The Colbert Report have that niche narrowed down. But I wanted to point out a bigger hypocrisy. Now can people be really that dumb, or are they all in on the secret school yard rules of, unless you openly admit something, you shall not be ridiculed, shamed, boycotted, lashed out at, insulted, etc. Meaning, are you fucking kidding me? You think this is the worst that people who run corporations think and do? People all spaz out at someone’s opinion yet you let corporations rape you financially, take your jobs and manufacturing and move it into cheaper countries and sell their shit that you used to make back at you while some other shitty corporation pays you chump change while you laugh all the way to Best Buy to keep the cycle going?
Or worse yet, the corporations and people with billions of dollars spending money influencing, strike that, owning politicians and making legislative decisions on their beliefs and their desires rather than yours and ours? You don’t care about that, you just care about someone saying they don’t believe people of the same sex shouldn’t be allowed to marry. You know what I do when someone says something I don’t agree with? I ignore it.
America, get your head out of your ass. Seriously, what the fuck? How about some public outcry that does some good, over real issues for a change? No? You’re right, you probably don’t want to jeapordize that job you have by that other corporation that thinks things you don’t believe but doesn’t say anything except into the ears and wallets of the politicians running things.
Wake the fuck up America. Time to put your adult pants on and grow the fuck up.
