(Tea Party PAC) – Liberals get really triggered by chicken sandwiches.
Especially when they’re made by a company that fears God and has good, solid biblical values.
The faculty council at the University of Kansas is calling for the removal of a Chick-fil-A location on their campus, which was recently moved to a more prominent location.
Apparently, it’s not enough that today’s universities are overrun with liberal programming and indoctrination. Students can’t even have delicious chicken sandwiches served with a smile and a “my pleasure,” either.
According to the faculty, the restaurant is not, in fact, merely a restaurant where anyone can enjoy the delicious food, clean facilities, and excellent customer service. It’s a “bastion of bigotry” and yes, they literally described it that way.
This may have something to do with comments Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy made in 2012 that to legalize gay marriage was to invite “God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.”
“And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about,” he added.
And thus began the left’s love-hate relationship with chicken sandwiches.
Anyway, the faculty council at the University of Kansas is arguing that Cathy’s sandwiches are inconsistent with the ideals held at the university, and they’re particularly concerned that the bigoted sandwiches will be sold near the university’s first gender-neutral bathroom, as if Dan Cathy’s personal moral views will somehow cancel out the inclusion of said bathroom.
Despite our denouncements and the university’s own moves to increase the campus’s diversity, equity, and inclusion, KU granted Chick-fil-A, a bastion of bigotry, a prime retail location in the heart of our campus. The Union houses spaces that the KU community designates as safe and accepting—not least of which are the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Center for Sexual & Gender Diversity. When the Memorial Union was first built, it featured segregated dining facilities. Over the past few decades, however, the building has become a crucial part of student life, accommodating dozens of student organizations and offices—all functioning to create an environment of academic, cultural, political, and social engagement for all KU students, staff and faculty, as well as numerous visitors to our campus. The Union was one of the first places on campus to incorporate gender inclusive bathrooms for the comfort and validation of the experiences and range of identities of the people who walk our halls. The arrival of Chick-fil-A in this building is insulting, counterproductive, and unacceptable.
These people are supposed to be teaching the next generation, our future leaders, doctors, innovators, and thinkers, and what they’re most concerned about is the proximity of a chicken restaurant to a bathroom.
Let. That. Sink. In.
