“Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values,” Emanuel said Wednesday.
“What the CEO has said as it relates to gay marriage and gay couples is not what I believe, but more importantly, it’s not what the people of Chicago believe. We just passed legislation as it relates to civil union and my goal and my hope … is that we now move on recognizing gay marriage. I do not believe that the CEO’s comments … reflect who we are as a city.”
Ald. Joe Moreno (1st) is using the same argument to block Chick-fil-A from opening its first free-standing restaurant in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood.
Chick-fil-A already has one Chicago store – at 30 E. Chicago near Loyola University’s downtown campus.
“Same sex marriage, same-sex couples – that’s the civil rights fight of our time. To have those discriminatory policies from the top down is just not something that we’re open to. …We want responsible businesses,” Moreno said.
Chick-Fil-A’s are popping up all around the suburbs of Chicago with no issues. But Just like Wal-Mart, Target and other Big-Box retailers when you are new in the city limits. The locals will beat you up until you pay them off. One minute the issue is non-union and then the next it will ruin mom and pop stores and now same-sex marriage. This is how Big Liberal Cities welcome new business with extortion. IF Chick-Fil-a goes through the Rodney Dangerfield “Back to School” business class of pay-offs. There will be a Chick-fil-a on every corner of the city and everyone will be happy…That’s the Chicago way… But, I don’t think that is Chick-Fil-A’s way.
“Chicago values”? ROFL “Chicago values”,…shootings, stabbings, rape, theft, burglaries, assault, flash mobs, anti-white racism, ditching school and learning, pants hanging below your butt, LOL, great fashion look, majority percentage out of wedlock births, welfare cheating, political dirty tricks, anything to win etc., etc., etc.
Great “values” Mr. Rahm Emanuel. How’s that working out for you?
Went to a Chick-fil-a last night for a chicken sandwich and crosscut fries. Delicious, affordable.
For all who fail to recognize that we are well down the road to tyranny I ask that you try to rationalize this behavior on the part of your elected officials. This is a full scale broadside attack on the first amendment. It is prima facie evidence of the discrimination practiced by liberal Democrats and their special interests and it punctuates their desire to silence all who disagree with them. It’s interesting that the word hate has a special place in their lexicon and they use it with abandon against any person place or thing that disagrees with them. But that very action tars them as among the most hateful entities on the planet. To be party to this irrational and ignorant behavior and see yourself as a superior being is further testimony that liberalism truly is a mental disorder. God help us!
