Appreciation lessons. – Tea Party Nation
August 2, 2012 2 Comments
While Chick-Fil-A made news and had its best day ever, there are lessons real Americans should learn from the left’s assault on America and anyone who disagrees with them.
What are those lessons?
The lesson remains that the left wants conservatives to be neither seen nor heard.
When Dan Cathy’s comments were originally reported, the left went into a hormone-fueled rage. Liberal mayors whose cities are rapidly swirling around the toilet bowl and whose primary exports are their jobs, their businesses, their productive citizens and the bodies of those killed by the out of control murder rates in their cities, screamed saying they would deny Chick-Fil-A the right to open new businesses in their cities.
The left wing media jumped all over this story. Then an amazing thing happened.
A simple idea was born. August 1 would be Chick-Fil-A appreciation day.
Yesterday real Americans crowded Chick-Fil-A establishments across the nation. Some had to close early because they ran out of food. Real Americans told stories on Facebook and Twitter about waiting an hour or more for those tasty chicken sandwiches. In some locations, lines stretched around the Chick-Fil-A store two and three times.
The liberal media was aghast that real Americans would disagree with the official pronouncement that Chick-Fil-A was an evil company because they said so.
Shepard Smith, Fox News’ resident brain donor called it a “National Day of Intolerance.” And the executives at Fox wonder why conservatives are checking out from watching Fox News. We can get that kind of garbage from MSNBC. Of course, what do you expect from a reporter who once was arrested for running down another reporter with his car in an argument over a parking space.
The left wing LA Times had one of its columnists go on a long and boring harangue about how Dan Cathy should simply learn to shut up. Michael Hilztik begrudged Cathy his “right” to speak his mind. Then he spent a few thousand words telling Cathy and other conservatives why they should never be heard from on this subject. He also reminded readers of another corporate executive who dared to defy liberal orthodoxy. That was John Mackey, the founder of the Whole Foods chain, who attacked the Obama Regime’s Obamacare tax proposal in a 2009 editorial.
Of course Hilztik forgot to mention what happened when the liberals threatened a boycott. Conservatives launched a “buycott” and Whole Foods sales went, you guessed it, up.
While the left is busy decrying individuals and corporations who dare to support conservative positions, particularly those of social conservatives; the opposite is true for corporations and CEOs who go out and dutifully support liberal causes.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos recently gave $2.5 million to a pro gay marriage effort. Any backlash from the media or any place else? Nope.
Google has launched a pro-homosexual effort called “Legalize love.” Any backlash from that? EA Sports, the home of the famous Madden Football game franchise signed a petition opposing the Defense of Marriage Act. Any backlash there?
The simple fact of the matter is not only is there a double standard when it comes to the media and its treatment of real Americans and liberals, there is another agenda at play.
The left does not want to debate real Americans. The left does not want to have a discussion with real Americans. The left wants to silence everyone who disagrees with them.
History has shown that the priority for the far left when it gains control of a nation is to do away with freedom of the press and freedom of speech first. No dissent is allowed. Everyone must agree with the party line.
This is why there can never be compromise with the left. You cannot compromise with a group that wants you silenced. There can never been compromise with a group that wants to strip you of your freedom and liberty. There can never be a compromise with a group that wants you to simply be the slave of a large socialist state.
The lamp of liberty is flickering. The left is doing everything it can to extinguish it.
Our choice is either we fight the left at every turn or we lose.
