Every Wednesday is Now ‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day’ According to NOM


NOM merges its branding with that of Chick-fil-A in an attempt to keep the hate chikin going.

Writes Jeremy Hooper: "When it comes to NOM, you have to wonder why they think the public is hungry for dead horse. When it comes to Chick-Fil-A, you have to wonder why they continue to allow the special interest group that is fighting gays in every state and federally to overtake their corporate branding."

    Are they working on the preposition that fattening of ppl is directly proportionate to the fattening of Dan Cathy’s pocket and that inturn is equivalent to hate spread?

    I’m assuming that Chick-Fil-A donates money to NOM. NOM needs the money to pay for their own jobs. Therefore, spend money at Chick-Fil-A so they can continue paying us so that we have jobs in which we work against civil rights for gay people.

    Whoever is hitching up to whoever’s wagon, it’s not going to work in the long run. The imagery is what’s going to stick in people’s mind. It’s like the KKK hitching their brand to George Wallace or vice-versa. Who wants to see Maggie Gallagher, or the equally big-boned Brian Brown, shoving that fried chicken into her (his/their) chubby little cheeks with mayonnaise dripping out of a corner of her (his/their) mouth, while spluttering food as they talk about gay marriage?

    But haven’t they heard that theory put out by the Bolivian president about eating American chicken making you gay? I would think they’d devour that nutjob factoid just as fast as they’re poking that chicken into their pieholes.

    All these bigots are adding unnecessary stress (and unnecessary enemies) to their lives by directing most of their energy toward hate. And now they’re going to make matters worse for their health every Wednesday? By eating chicken that’s rolled in white flour, butter and POWDERED SUGAR(!) before being deep fried? This whole combination couldn’t be something that any doctor would advise. Do these bigots have a death wish?

  6. Randy says

    NOM has so few open supporters that they are extremely grateful for anyone who is willing to partner with them.

    CFA is longterm, dead in the water. First, they lost control of their corporate image, thanks in large part to NOM. That’s not good for any corporation.

    Second, any one who considers opening a franchise has to deal with the act that they are part of a gay-hating organization. So very few people will want to do that – there are other options for franchises.

    Third, what bright young MBA or corporate type would want to work for a company so closely associated with anti-gay policies?

    So — thanks to Cathy’s comments, they lost control and are know primarily known not as a chicken sandwich place, but a place to support anti-gay policies.

    I suspect that within two years, they will be quietly distancing themselves from NOM and others, and will try to make amends with the gay community.

    Huckabee and Jesus, Inc. spun the facts into something about free speech, and the blind followers followed not stopping to think for themselves. The good X-tians were duped, and the bad ones just took off their hoods that day as they lined up for chikin.

    As much as I would love to think the good X-tians have since learned what this was/is all about, I have serious doubts.

    They should change their name from NOM to OM-NOM-NOM, since their main focus nowadays is to get close-minded bigots to keep wolfing down fatty chicken sandwiches just to stick it to “the homos”.

    Mmm, Maggie Gallagher loves her greasy chicken! She better spews her hate speech with spackles of fried, digested fowl meat shooting from her bigoted lips.

  10. "The GAY" says

    I think what people are missing is that the branding and PR that made this possible are absolutely brilliant and undeniably effective.

    NOM and CFA certainly won this one on strategy, knowing their clientele, and general popularity among their base.

    Huck even got on for the ride. Impressive.

    Strategy is how you win. Appealing to what people understand best, no matter how grotesque and twisted, well, that’s what America is ALL about !

    If companies are people and people vote with dollars then the destination of the restaurant’s donations are open for public debate. It very well should be an issue as to where peoples’ hard-earned money goes after the chicken goes down their gullet. This issue has made our little feathered friend the modern martyr as Chick-fil-A laughs all the way to the bank. Watch the poultry be nailed to the cross and pierced by the spear of destiny at the hands of those devious cows on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08/holy-rollin-poultry-on-cross-chick-fil.html

    One thing I learned in college while studying mass media is, “there is no such thing as bad press.” Any press that gets your brand in the public eye can drive sales. Please stop promoting this CFA brand as you may unintentionally be driving sales towards them. We just need to rebrand a parody that looks like it would taste nasty, like hate. Make that the new globally recognized Choc-Fulla-Hate logo and use it every time we discuss them. Just my opinion. I appreciate TR and come here daily for news. Keep up the good work.

    “No, Jesus would definitely not want you spending that money actually helping people who need it.”
