Allen West Loves Him Some Chick-fil-A

By Javier Manjarres

Congressman Allen West commented on the Chick-fil-A controversy, stating that he grew on the fast food, and questioned the ‘punishment’ of the company by leftists for the personal beliefs expressed by  the head of the fast-food chain.

 I grew up on Chick-fil-A in Atlanta,Georgia. I love  some Chick-fil-A. -Allen West

    Godfather rahmbo deadfish should be worrying about all the murders in chitown instead of trying to impose his liberal views on others. How long before the entire state collapses economically?

    Normally I go to Chick-Fil-A once a week. However this week after Rahm Emanuel opened his mouth, I’ve gone every day and will continue to go every day to support them even if all I buy is one of their GREAT vanilla milkshakes! The lines both inside and at the drive thru have gotten LONGER all week long and that’s the end result of this INSANITY that’s been started because of someone’s ‘personal opinion’. Chick-Fil-A is one of the BEST business models anywhere in America and they will only GROW the longer the progressive left tries to make any kind of issue out of the owners comments. Keep it coming Liberals, you’re going DOWN in November! How’s that “Hope & Change” working out for YOU? Can YOU say it’s “1980″ all over again??? That’s MY story and I’m stickin’ to it…

    Mike Huckabee is calling Aug 4, Wed., Chick-Fil-A Day! I’ll be at the Jax Beach location.
    I wish I could buy a few shares of the chain.

    MDCPS is trying to get out of a contract with a church that has had a couple of sermons regarding homosexuality. The school district rents out space to private organizations and this church is one of them. From what I heard the sermons were all ideologically based and not “hate” based. Whether I agree with the sermon or not it is their right as a church to have their own beliefs. But no one in the media is touching this part of the issue with a ten foot pole. They are just reporting from the sidelines and providing quotes from the players involved while not coming close to approaching the issue of freedom of religion.

    WAR IS PEACE
    FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
    IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

    1984 has arrived – just nearly 30 years later than the prescient Orwell predicted.

    All those supporting Cick-Fil-A are obviously guilty of doubleplus ungood thoughtcrime and are scheduled to be schooled in the ways of AmSoc (American Socialism) at the Ministry of Love (aka the DHS “emergency evacuation” camps).

    Having a Chick-fil-A Day is great but just so that communists like Obama and Emanuel know, I’m going as often as I darn well please!

    I AMPROUD to call you my Congressman, since I live in Fl. Hastings needs to get out, since he has such bad knowledge of OUR CONSTTUTION! It is people like HIM, that have us in such bad condition! Allen both likes chicken, plus their STAND! It so rediculous. They (black causas) sure have thin skin, when chicken causes them upset!
    I think it will help Allen…as long as one will use their God given common sense!
    Sincerely, Lily Sobotta
