is all I have to say.
The mayors trying to ban Chick-fil-A was a real low point even for the left. Boycotts were bad enough. Then after the rally for Chick-fil-A, what do they do but stage a “kiss-in” at the stores. Let me get it straight, if you are a successful store owner and do not endorse or support LGBT gay agenda, they will organize a “kiss-in” at your store.
Then Rahm Emanuel, trying to explain his anti-Chic-fil-A position, says he doesn’t want the restaurant there because it does not represent “Chicago’s values”. So what are the values in the gang-banger capital of the Mid-West? Three cheers for Chicago’s “values”…. the home of more convicted politicians than anywhere in the US.
Just to show how bad an idea this fascist discrimination is, many Democrats disagreed with it. Even the ‘King of Bans’, Mayor Bloomberg said he didn’t agree with it. When you can’t get Bloomberg onboard for a ban, you must be doing something wrong.
“Rahm Emanuel, Moreno out-of-touch with #Chicago Values”

Chicagoans are used to politicians running roughshod over our city. It’s a war zone today, but not just from the drug cartel and gang shootings that are ravaging our neighborhoods. The politicians from the local up to the federal think they’re little kings, who use favors and privilege to keep our city in the grips of their rule. In the case of banning Chick-fil-A, however, we have the opportunity to shake our politicians up and down and show them just how little they understand about those whom they claim to represent.
Among other things, we still like the U.S. Constitution and would appreciate it being applied within our city boundaries (see the Second Amendment case for reference).
Alderman Joe Moreno of Chicago, who represents a gentrified neighborhood close to the city’s downtown, has used “Aldermanic Privilege” to ban the construction of a Chick-fil-A restaurant because the owner supports traditional marriage based on his Christian faith. Boston Mayor Menino has now admitted he was wrong to suggest he would prevent a Chick-fil-A in downtown Boston.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that he supported Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno’s decision to ban Chick-fil-A because it doesn’t represent “Chicago Values” and besides, the restaurant would be “empty” because of it. [….cont.]
