Fox News Stands With Chick-fil-A And Appreciate Mike Huckabee's Rabble-Rousing: VIDEO


Fox News has been having a field day with the protests over Chick-fil-A, and they're making no secret of where they stand: the Fox & Friends hosts had some of the franchise's fare for breakfast during today's show.

It was there that host Steve Doocy firmly aligned himself with Chick-fil-A. In his opinion, "so many on the left are so intolerant" and the protests over Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's anti-gay politics, and the money the company has funneled to anti-gay causes, is an attack on free speech.

Doocy and company also chatted with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee today. Huckabee is the man who sparked the right's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," which Fox host Brian Kilmeade calls a "great idea."

As for Huckabee, he says he organized because the left's "hate speech" was "getting out of hand" and that Chick-fil was being subjected to "economic bullying."

"It was just getting out of hand — the hate speech and the incredible language that was being hurled at Dan Cathy, the CEO, because in an interview with a Christian newspaper he took a stand for traditional marriage,” he said, according to Mediaite. “For that, he was just being bullied. Economic bullying was the way this was going down.”

Huckabee was also asked about the "kiss-in" being held tomorrow by LGBT activists and their allies to counter the conservative action. He says supports their freedom to assemble as long as they're "orderly." Of course his alleged support comes with a subtle jab pitting LGBT people against families, which are of course only headed by heterosexual couples: "If [the LGBT activists] believe that this [kiss-in] will help their cause – to put people of the same sex kissing each other in front of families – if they believe that will encourage people to be more sympathetic than more power to them. In America, I believe that people have the right to do things that I might not agree with."

  1. Yes, they won the battle. As a group, that votes, we can win the war.

  2. What about a flashmob at CFA? Not like a riot. Like acting like patrons to order food, then unexpectedly dance ending with a major glitter bomb inside the place?

  3. The main fox news studio is in Secaucus, NJ, which is near several malls that would have CFAs.

  4. Now let's all take a deep breath and remember what started this.
    1. Chick-fil-A CEO exercised his right to free speech by saying his view on marriage is directly aligned with the Bible’s.
    2. Left-wing mayors personally disagree with CEO.
    3. Left-wing mayors tried to overstep their boundaries and block Chick-fil-A expansion.
    4. Right-wingers exercised their right to protest
    5. Left-wingers get mad

    The reason? Left-wingers become infuriated when someone thinks differently than they do. Also, left-wing politicians have no problem overstepping the boundaries of their political power to force their opinion on others.

    The most disturbing part is the hypocrisy of it all. For example, if the owner of a local organic granola manufacturer said a right-wing mayor tried to block expansion of his store because the mayor doesn’t like the fact that the owner believes pot should, you people would be protesting from coast to coast!! I just don’t get it.

  5. E Castellaw and other aliases: we're not going to feed you trolls. So troll somewhere else.

  6. I'm not intentionally trying to make anyone mad. I'm simply stating the facts as I see them as well as my personal opinion.

    Is that trolling to you? Maybe a better response from you would have been "We're unwilling to back up our claims or engage in a debate."

  7. E CASTELLAW, a troll is a troll is a troll. Nice try.

  8. Next week: Emboldened by his success on his anti-gay marriage stance, Cathy comes out for slavery. After being denounced by the president, hordes of people show their support for "free speech" against "intolerant liberals" by buying meals at Chick-Fil-A, and are applauded by Fox.
