When Star Trek’s George Takei recently aimed his phasers at Chick-fil-A, the restaurant’s partisans ate his lunch. Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu on “Star Trek,” has made his mark as a liberal political activist.
Takei posted a list of “Companies You Should Avoid if You Support Gay Rights.” The featured image of the article is a Chick-fil-A bag.
And the end sentence: They’ve been blocked from opening a store in the Denver airport for their bigoted views.
These are the “diversity” police remember. The ones who preach “tolerance” at the end of a Lawyer’s sword.
You should know by now “anti-gay” means not willing kiss the Gay Mafia’s ass and appease them and their lawyers on speed dial for “offense”.
“These companies are free to have their own opinions, but we consumers are equally free to decide where to spend our money,” Takei wrote on Facebook.
Chick-fil-A’s fans then took over, flooding the page with reasons why Takei was wrong.
“Sorry George,” wrote Judy DeLaurentiis. “These companies have every right to their opinions and beliefs. Just as you do. You can’t demand these rights and then try to deny rights, freedom of speech and religion to anyone else who doesn’t agree with your views. Chicken fil a doesn’t discriminate against anyone. I’ve never seen anyone, ever, turned away and not served because of their sexual orientation at chick fil a.”
Others noted some actual evil in the world.
“If you are going as far to boycott what you consider anti-gay companies, better not buy any gasoline that comes from oil companies that was purchased in the Middle East where being gay there is a capital crime,” wrote Jason Roberts.
Some picked apart Takei’s logic.
“Careful with this kind of activism,” wrote Bob Wilkinson. “This logic is exactly what creates division and hate. Unintended consequences could include people with a different ideology deciding not to do business with those who do support gay rights. I like reading your posts George, but this is not an intelligent way to create positive change.”
Now ask, if any of the Leftist were actually comprehending any of it? 🙂
Perhaps the post from Chance Bunger said it best.
“I think I’ll just enjoy my chicken sandwich and leave politics out of lunch,” he wrote.
To wit, one of the first responses: Why? They use the money from your lunch to fund anti-equality groups.
Fascinating turn of phrase.
or “Human rights aren’t “politics”. “
They are so programmed they don’t even comprehend their talking points.
The some other companies (the article aborted suddenly):
Urban Outfitters: UO was labeled hypocritical after their CEO donated $13,000 to the campaign of anti-gay candidate Rick Santorum while the store sold “pro-gay” items.
HOW DARE THEY!
EXXON MOBIL: Well, that’s a given. They hate Gays and they are the cause of Global Warming, so they are a double threat.
“Exxon Mobil is the only Fortune 10 company that does not have a non-discrimination policy covering sexual orientation.”
WALMART: Big surprise. The most hated company by the LEFT, period.
“it has also associated with and donated to anti-gay organizations like Family Council Action Committee and the Christian Values Network.”
Are we starting to smell a trend here? If you give to “pro-gay” causes and politicians you are good, if you ever gave to anyone who is even remotely against their political agenda, you’re a bigot and on the naughty list.
But it’s not about politics. 🙂
A-1 Storage (who?): A self-storage company in California.
“Owner Terry Caster and his family donated $693,000 to fight same-sex marriage in California back in 2008, earning a boycott from groups like Californians Against Hate.The Casters were the second largest contributors to Proposition 8…”
The defense of marriage act that passed, which means it’s automatically anti-gay and makes them bigots.
Next up: THE SALVATION ARMY! Seriously…
“The seemingly wholesome organization harbors some deep anti-gay sentiments.Despite a PR push to refute their homophobic reputation, internal documents were leaked that confirm discrimination is alive and well at the Salvation Army.”
Leaked by a Liberal no doubt “heroically”.
So once again, if you disagree with a Leftist, you’re bigot. End of Discussion.
Alden Grove on Facebook response: “ I love this. It’s horrifically impressive how far into the sand, the clouds, and their own asses the “just live your life” people are. Do you have any idea how shaped the life you live is from the politics of the people who came before you?“
Enjoy the sanctimony. The Left sure does. 🙂
