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…
