More Chick-Fil-A Protest News: So, We’re Still Doing This, Then?

On The Corner, Andrew Johnson brings us the story of Chick-Fil-A protests at the University of New Mexico. A little late to the party, huh guys?

An LGBTQ group launched a campaign to push for the eatery’s removal, saying that “even the bags have become a symbol of hate.” [everyone who’s ever had a cross burned in their yard or a concentration camp ID number tattooed into their arm could not be reached for comment – j] Chick-fil-A’s support for traditional marriage, which has recently grown more controversial, apparently had group members worried that its presence would trigger retaliation for their lifestyle. “Please look at this from a moral standpoint,” one student pleaded before the vote, “look at the kids that are here that are telling you, ‘I do not feel safe on this campus anymore.’”

Well, I have no comment, because that’s just silliness. But some creative person needs to come up with something new for UNM students to protest about.
Maybe this is just a story about how long it takes cultural phenomena to make it to the University of New Mexico. After the protests, I understand the students all put on their snuggies and danced away Gangnam Style.

  1. They don’t feel safe on campus anymore? Have they ever BEEN in the Chick-fil-a??? Are they intimidated by the employees going out of their way to make their visit a pleasant (and delicious) one, or what?

    So many questions…

  2. If we’re going to protest intimidating fast food places, somebody needs to do something about the work release inmates who staff my local Subway.
