Anti-Gay Chick-fil-A Action Was Big National News: VIDEO


"The lines wrapped around the malls." So says ABC News' Steve Osunsami in his report on the right-wing's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day." Some people are so supportive of company CEO Dan Cathy and his anti-gay politics that they had two sandwiches!

Osunami's was just one of the many reports from around the country, networks and cable news channels. Watch a round up, via On Knees for Jesus, AFTER THE JUMP.

On a related note: the Los Angeles Times reports gay advocates are planning a kiss-in outside Chick-fil-A locations tomorrow to counter this right-wing display. Hopefully the mainstream media will report on that as well.

  1. I hope you're not referring to me as one of those 'conservatives', Francis, because I'm not 'conservative'. You need to try thinking more outside the box,Francis. Get off the plantation, tip your toes in, the water's fine.

  2. They had their 15 seconds of fame. What matters is four more years!

  3. So, obviously, the "kiss-in" tomorrow feels pretty redundant and will have no effect. What about a flash mob? Not like a riot. More like get a group of people together to order food, break out dancing. Then ending with a giant glitter bomb inside. Everybody has some glitter to throw around.

  4. @Logan,

    Gluttony is indeed a big sin in the bible. I too don't understand how these fat phuks overlook it. Not to mention many other typically acceptable behaviors and attitudes in America and elsewhere.

    Reminds me of the effed up young man in NYC a while back [during a Queens gay bashing] who had the Leviticus quote about a man lying with another man tattooed on his arm! Aside from the fact this is batsh*t crazy thing to do, Leviticus also said marking the body was an abomination. The bible even says eating shellfish is an abomination, and it's OK to kill your children if they're disrespectful to their parents.

  5. The first images were so white. I was laughing to myself about how I couldn't see a single person of color among the crowds. Then who is the first person they show interviewed? The younger black woman who opposes gay marriage. As a woman, a minority, and a young person, she's supposed to be liberal, so clearly it's the gays that are crazy. Also, it just tried to reinforce the black vs. gay stereotype.

  6. This is beginning to sound like the classic August news story that reporters not on vacation this month will flock to so they don't have to work too hard. It's a slow news month because there's fewer reporters around. And don't expect a lot of effort on the part of the remaining crew--the junior reporters that have to take their vacations in the fall.

  7. Wow i went to undergrad w Steve Osunsami. Wonder what it was like for him on the ground being big, black, intelligent, and gay as he is. Maybe he should have opened up the interviewz with an intro "btw im actually ur worst nightmare".
