For appreciation day to support the Christian-owned business…
#Chickfila has been holding steady all day as the #3 Trending Topic on Twitter, with other hashtag versions (#Chick and #CFA) emerging and receding on the top ten trend list.
Michelle Malkin wrote: “The fast-food chicken restaurant has seen standing-room-only dining areas and clogged drive-through lines all week since the mayors of Boston and Chicago openly declared their desire to shut the company’s franchises down through discriminatory permitting practices.”
And Rush Limbaugh predicts today’s overwhelming turnout, coupled with Texas’ conservative US Senatorial candidate Ted Cruz’s crushing of his opponent, will replicate itself at the polls come November 6th.
Around the country, they’re eatin mor chickin!
Eric Odom has a message for you:
Last week we published a great overview of the Chick-Fil-A free-speech vs big government controversy that brought about today’s Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. If you’re not yet familiar with the story, click here to get up to speed.
The response is simple. First, Today, August 1… TAKE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO CHICK-FIL-A AND SUPPORT THEIR RIGHT TO SPEAK FREELY IN AMERICA!
ALERT–> Second, we’re now running a major nationwide petition to make a show-of-hands of more than 75,000 Americans who will sign our petition affirming support for Chick-Fil-A, and opposition to those in government who wish to violate their rights.
As of the time of this email, more than 65,000 have already signed the petition!
As an American citizen I strongly object to the unlawful efforts of elected officials who are calling for censorship and government blockades to keep Chick-Fil-A from doing business in their respective cities. Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy’s comments are protected under the authority of our Constitution, and as such must be respected – not threatened, and censored by government officials.
The petition will be delivered to both Chick-Fil-A and the offending government officials. Make sure your name is on the list demanding they stand down and obey our guaranteed rights.
Watch LibertyNews.com this evening for petition reports, as well as “on the scene” updates throughout the evening.
