Once again, the despicable and evil Christian owners of Chick-Fil-A have committed more acts on intolerant evil. After failed boycotts, and hate filled rhetoric from tolerant regressives, Chick-Fil-A marches on. Here is their latest act of intolerance and evil…
Chick-fil-A, the restaurant chain that liberals have attacked so viciously and labeled as evil, has once again come to the aid of members of their community in a show of support for the family of a fallen sheriff’s deputy killed in action.
Utah County Sgt. Cory Wrie was shot and killed by a 17-year-old female suspect last year during a traffic stop, an event that left his family and friends shaken, including his wife and 12-year-old daughter, Macklin.
Wride’s family wants nothing more than to travel to this year’s National Police Week Memorial taking place in Washington, D.C., and thanks to Chick-fil-A teaming up with a national organization known as Concerns Of Police Survivors, that’s going to become a reality.
Great for Chick-Fil-A, and where IS the praise from the “compassionate and charitable” Left? HA! Don’t hold your breath for that folks. This story also reminded me of something. When the Left’s Intolerant Brigades attacked Chick-Fil-A, what happened? They had a boycott and Conservatives struck back by flocking to Chick-Fil A locations. The Left’s boycott crashed and burned. Hmmm, so did all those anti-Rush boycotts. The most recent call to boycott Limbaugh saw a few advertisers pull away, only to come crawling back begging to sponsor Rush’s how again. Seems to me that every time the Right fights back against the Left, they win, convincingly! Take the recent Leftist attacks against Memories Pizza in Indiana. The right fought back after the Left bullied that pizza place into closing by raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Memories.
Every time we fight back, we win, so why don’t CEO’s and the GOP leadership get that? And why don’t they stand up to the bullies of the Left? It is a winning proposition, yet, they too often cower in fear, ceding ground to the intolerance of the Left.
The Lonely Conservative asks why a gay couple would want bigots at their wedding
Where do you even start with all of this? Who has their wedding catered by a small town pizza shop, anyway? I’ve been to quite a few weddings and I don’t recall one where pizza was served.
The bigger question is, why would a gay couple want to have “bigots” involved in their wedding at all? (I put the word bigots in quotes because that’s what the left is now calling people who believe that by catering, photographing or otherwise providing services in a gay wedding they are participating in, or profiting off of sin.) Their wedding day is one of the biggest days of their lives, so why would they want people there who aren’t going to share in their joy?
Why not just let the free market work? I’m sure for every Christian caterer that is uncomfortable catering a gay wedding there are ten caterers who are happy to have the business. The same goes for florists, bakers and photographers. Why do liberal gays want to ruin the lives of people with whom they disagree? What reason could there,other than the most obvious?
And the most obvious reason? Tammy Bruce answers that
Conservative radio host and openly-gay Tammy Bruce said of Fox & Friends Thursday morning that the gay rights movement risked turning into fascist bullies in its response to Indiana’s new RFRA law, as embodied by the threats against an Indiana pizzeria that told a local news station it would not cater a gay wedding.
“If there’s anyone in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority, of being somebody that maybe others don’t understand or relate to, the vulnerability about work and jobs, being able to live your life as you see fit, it’s the gay community,” Bruce said.
“For me to turn around in the 21st century and see that this is what we were fighting for, so we could condemn people who are different, and with whom we disagree is the antithesis of what every civil rights movement was about.”
Of course, the driving force behind these movements is not equal treatment, or tolerance. The Left hijacks movements and steers them in directions that have nothing to do with the original movements stated goals. It is not about anything except coerced conformity
CBS6 reporter Alix Bryan doesn’t like when people lend a hand to a business destroyed by the “diversity” mob under false pretenses, so she does what every supposedly “non-biased” media hack does, try and get it shut down on bogus fraud charges.
Her now deleted tweet:
Two more sent down the memory hole.
Alix Bryan, a social media employee with WTVR-TV, the CBS affiliate in Richmond, Virginia, is being investigated by station management for filing a false fraud report to GoFundMe against Memories Pizza, a spokesman told The Gateway Pundit on Friday.
Over $700,000 has been raised in just a few days to help the family-owned business that has temporarily shut down after being harassed by totalitarian gay-rights supporters outraged the store said in a gotcha TV interview that in theory it would not cater a gay wedding because of their religious beliefs.
Bryan posted to Twitter on Wednesday evening she was filing a fraud complaint with GoFundMe “just in case.”
“I have reported the GoFundMe for Memories Pizza for fraud. Just in case. http://www.gofundme.com/contact?t=donation_page_report&url=MemoriesPizza
When challenged for filing a fraud complaint based on no evidence, Bryan said “that is totally acceptable to do” and that had she looked in to the matter after she filed her complaint.
“Also, that is totally acceptable to do. I also did research afterward and contacted person who started fund. @LilacSundayBlog @CBS6”
Lawrence Billy Jones III, who started the GoFundMe page on Wednesday in coordination with Dana Loesch and other contributors to Loesch’s Blaze TV show, told Bryan on Twitter that she never contacted him.
“@alixbryan @LilacSundayBlog @CBS6 you didn’t contact me.”
Bryan describes herself on Twitter as an employee of CBS6
“I like to travel, ask questions, and help improve the world. 1/3 of a kick-ass web and social media team @CBS6 in #RVA. Opinions are my own, not employers.”
Bryan claimed her work has nothing to do with her involving her herself in the Memories Pizza story with a false report.
“My work has nothing to do with this. @LilacSundayBlog @CBS6”
Her employers at WTVR may beg to differ.
As of 5:30pm eastern time, over $800,000 has been raised online to offset the financial losses suffered by the proprietors of Memories Pizza.

A federal judge ordered the IRS this week to turn over the list of 298 groups it targeted for intrusive scrutiny as the agency defends against a potential class-action lawsuit by tea party groups who claim their constitutional rights were violated.
The IRS had argued it shouldn’t have to release the names because doing so would violate privacy laws, but Judge Susan J. Dlott, who sits in the Southern District of Ohio, rejected that claim and ordered the tax agency to turn over any lists or spreadsheets detailing the groups that were targeted and when they filed their applications.
Judge Dlott also ordered the IRS to say whether a partial list of targeted groups reported by USA Today is authentic as a number of tea party groups try to win certification for a class action lawsuit against the IRS.
“The return information sought is directly related to the issue of class certification in this federal court proceeding,” the judge said. “The names of the putative class member organizations and their control dates – the date which the putative class member organizations submitted their applications for tax exempt status to the IRS – are directly related to the issue of class certification.”
The judge has not yet certified the tea party groups as a class, and the information that they’ve obtained so far through depositions remains under seal. But backers say if they can be certified, then they will begin to try to pry loose some of the key information about how the IRS chose which groups it went after in its targeting.
“We’re at the precipice,” said Mark Meckler, a member of one of the tea party groups suing, and also president of Citizens for Self-Governance, which is funding the litigation.
The Ohio lawsuit is the only major legal jeopardy still remaining in the courts for the IRS — though the agency is still facing an FBI investigation, according to documents obtained by True the Vote, a tea party group, under the Freedom of Information Act.
Earlier this week the deporting U.S. attorney in Washington, D.C. informed House Speaker John A. Boehner he would not prosecute Lois G. Lerner, the former senior executive who’s at the center of the targeting scandal, for contempt of Congress. The prosecutor said Ms. Lerner didn’t waiver her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination when she delivered an opening statement at a congressional hearing but then refused follow-up questions.
The scandal developed after the IRS acknowledged it singled out tea party groups for special scrutiny, and asked intrusive questions that agency executives later said were inappropriate. The IRS’s inspector general concluded that 298 groups were targeted, with all but a handful of them leaning toward the conservative side.
But the IRS has resisted releasing the official list, arguing that is private information.
“The Internal Revenue Service cannot disclose the identities of the potential class members because that is return information protected,” the administration said in its court filings.
The judge disagreed, saying exemptions in law apply to a case like this.
Several other cases had been filed in Washington, D.C., by tea party groups trying to force a judge to proactively halt any future targeting. The judge tossed those cases, saying that the IRS insists the targeting has ended, so there is no further action needed.
But some groups are still awaiting approval, including one that’s been pending for more than five years, which their lawyers argue means the IRS is still targeting despite its insistence that its program has ended.
Commissioner John Koskinen has said groups that are still waiting could take a deal, promising to limit their political activities to 40 percent of their business, but the groups argue that would mean giving up rights since they believe under current law politicking can be almost 50 percent of their activities.
