Nancy Pelosi on Chick-fil-A: 'I Prefer Kentucky Fried Chicken'

Pelosi

Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made note in a tweet yesterday that she prefers her chicken without a helping of bigotry:

"For the record, I prefer Kentucky Fried Chicken. #ChickFilA"

In related news, one of Romney's top VP hopefuls showed his support for Chick-fil-A:

PawlentyTop Mitt Romney surrogate and potential vice presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty came to Chick-fil-A’s defense during a Romney campaign event in Cary, North Carolina on Saturday, bragging to a small group of supporters that he ate lunch at the fast-food franchise, which refuses to offer any employment protections to LGBT employees and has donated millions of dollars to ex-gay ministries.

And the University of Louisville President and Provost won't be eating there any time soon:

U of L spokesman Mark Hebert confirmed Friday a statement from the university to the university's Office for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Services that said "the president and the provost will not be eating at Chik-fil-A anytime soon."

Hebert said the university is not elaborating at this time on the statement.

The LGBT Services Web site published a statement Friday that said the university administration has commented on the presence of a Chik-fil-A restaurant in the Student Activities Center on campus and an online petition to have it removed.

Meanwhile, Change.org sent out notice yesterday that students from seven schools across the country have started petitions to get Chick-fil-A off their campuses:

The petitions target officials at the University of Illinois, University of Kansas, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Ball State University, College of Charleston, Wichita State University, and Minnesota State University.

  1. So Pawlenty had the audacity to say the following:

    "Now you have the police power of government intimidating and threatening people, being used to intimidate and threaten people, based on their free speech rights and their religious views," Pawlenty said Saturday of city officials' objections to president Dan Cathy's public disavowal of gay marriage. "I mean it’s chilling. I mean it’s stunning, it is jaw-dropping. And so I think strong people who see this need to stand up and say no we don’t do that in the United States."

    The hypocrisy and irony is stunning.

  3. Conservative Free Speech - protected from counterpoints and criticisms.

    Someone who bullies a conservative - someone who fights back.

  4. KFC? Good, now the PETA types can flood her in-box with the videos of the KFC chickens getting their beaks cut-off and hanged upside down and boiled alive. Maybe throw red paint on her, firebomb her home. Killer b!tch. Animal bigot. What are her kid's names?

  6. Conservative Free Speech is not eligible for counterpoints and criticism because it is the Word of God, unlike the godless LGBT community and its allies. (Hence, their boycotts are acceptable whereas ours aren't.) In the name of Free Speech (and historical "accuracy") they even want to rewrite American History to suit their world view. For example, the American Revolution was NOT a rebellion against England, because God says that rebellion against established authority is forbidden. Let alone what they are doing to the Founding Fathers... As an LGBT Episcopalian I find this behavior of self-identified Christians appalling.

  7. Oops! I forgot to mention that to most evangelicals, I'm not a member of a real Christian Church. Unlike Romney, who belongs to what evangelicals have traditionally called a "cult". (I was raised evangelical so I know from personal experience.) Just where in the Bible does it say that the end justifies the means? (This certainly seems to be Romney's history of flip-flops and inaccurate statements.)

  8. Let them eat chicken! I defend their right to discriminate and be bigots. If I defend their right to discriminate and be bigots, they should be defending my right to boycott and support equality. I can accept that they have the right to put their profits into hate groups, just as they should accept my right not to eat their processed chicken and give my money to businesses that support my causes.
