High school declines free Chick-fil-A lunch because of their LGBT views

Stories like this just prompt us to visit CFA, which we’ll be doing today for lunch.

From Fox News: The principal of a New Orleans high school said his staffers have no desire to “eat mor chikin,” as the administrator turned down a free lunch for teachers catered by Chick-fil-A over what he alleges are the company’s “views” toward the LGBTQ community.

On Oct. 10, Steven Corbett, principal of Lusher High School, said that he had recently declined a free lunch from the chicken-centric chain for his employees, provided through the College Football Playoff Foundation (CFPF), explaining that the restaurant’s values do not align with those of the school.

“Out of respect to our LGBTQ staff, we have chosen to not serve Chick-fil-A at an employee lunch. The #1 rule at Lusher is to ‘Be Kind’ and we live this motto every day,” Corbett told WWL-TV. “Chick-fil-A has been politically outspoken about its views, and we feel it is not part of Lusher’s culture of kindness and community.”

“Anytime an organization is anti-LGBTQ, and has efforts to infringe upon their rights, we thought it was important to support and stand up for their community at this time,” the principal told WDSU, doubling down on his argument.

The catered lunch was reportedly scheduled to take place on Friday, according to WWL-TV.

In response, a spokesperson for the CFPF said that the organization understood, and that teachers at the charter school would receive a meal from another restaurant. “[We are just] glad teachers will have a good lunch tomorrow,” spokesperson Tony Fay said.

Fay added that the teacher’s lunch for Lusher High School staff is one of “several” initiatives the CFPF is launching to thank the New Orleans community for hosting the Sugar Bowl and College Football Championship in 2020.

Kansas University faculty wants Chick-fil-A banned from campus to protect students’ mental well being

If your “mental well being” is offended by a chicken sandwich I suggest you aren’t all that stable to begin with.

From MSN: “KU granted Chick-fil-A, a bastion of bigotry, a prime retail location in the heart of our campus,” the university’s Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council wrote in a letter to the school’s chancellor and other university leaders.

“Moving Chick-fil-A to the Union and granting it a role at the start of all home football games violates the feelings of safety and inclusion that so many of us have striven to create, foster, and protect on campus, and sends a message that the Union, KU Athletics, and the administration at large are more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well being of marginalized and LGBTQ people,” they added.

The University of Kansas this year moved the restaurant chain’s location from a basement to a prominent spot in the student union, according to the Kansas City Star.

The school also negotiated a deal for a “Chick-fil-A Coin Toss” at the start of every home football game.

The restaurant chain has been a target of protesters in various parts of the U.S. for its connection to anti-gay groups.

The KU council highlighted Chick-fil-A’s owner’s “history of supporting organizations that are hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people, families, and communities.”

“The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels. In short, Chick-fil-A on KU’s campus stands in direct contrast to the university’s mission of fostering a multicultural, inclusive environment,” they added.

Chick-fil-A and KU’s chancellor did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Chick-fil-A manager helps upset WWII vet change his flat tire

While the left hate on Chick-fil-A, their employees never cease to provide excellent customer service.

From Daily Mail: A manager of a Maryland Chick-fil-A has proved he’s willing to go above and beyond for his customers, even helping one elderly patron in the most unlikely of ways.

Daryl Howard, 29, was working at the franchise in Severn on Thursday when a regular customer by the name of Mr. Lee walked in and asked for assistance after his car sustained a flat tire.

Lee, a 96-year-old World War II veteran, visits regularly for a chicken biscuit and a coffee – but on this occasion he was in much more distress after barely making it to the restaurant.

‘He was shaking, almost in tears,’ another manager by the name of Rudy Somoza told CNN.

Howard was only too happy to help his elderly client change the tire, telling Somoza to tend to the tills while he went outside to the parking lot.

‘He jumped into action without hesitation,’ Somoza explained.

As Howard changed the car tire, Somoza snapped a picture and posted it online – with no idea that it would soon go viral.

The image – which shows Howard bending down near the vehicle as the elderly Lee watches on – has heartened social media users. ‘Let’s highlight the awesome people in society!’ one wrote on Facebook, seemingly sick of relentless bad news.

‘Chick-fil-A has some pretty awesome employees!’ cooed another admirer of the image.

Somoza says the selfless act wasn’t out of character for Howard – whom he has known for five years.

‘His act of kindness was beautiful. He has always been so helpful to anyone in need and deserves this recognition,’ Somoza stated.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lee returned to the restaurant on Friday to pick up a coffee – and to say thank you again to Howard for his help.

So much for libs’ boycott: Chick-fil-A named America’s favorite restaurant chain for fourth year running

From NY Post: Once again, Chick-fil-A has been named America’s favorite restaurant based on customer satisfaction.

For the fourth year in a row, the fast-food chain topped the American Customer Satisfaction Index for limited-service restaurant chains. The index is based on results from nearly 23,000 consumers.

Chick-fil-A scored an 86 on the ASCI’s 100-point scale, which is down one point from last year, Forbes reports. For comparison, McDonald’s scored a 69, Burger King a 76 and KFC a 78. Taco Bell scored a 75.
Meanwhile, in regard to pizza places, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s both scored 80 points, with Domino’s at 79 and Little Caesars at just 77.

Chick-fil-A’s high ranking can be attributed to several factors, including the company’s famous customer service training. Business Insider reports that the restaurant was named America’s most polite chain in QSR Magazine’s annual report.

This isn’t the only piece of good news for Chick-fil-A. The chain is expected to become the third bestseller fast-food chain in America, Fox 5 reports. It’s expected to jump past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, based on a study conducted by Kalinowski Equity Research.

Making this an even more impressive feat is the fact that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, while almost all of its competition is open seven days a week.

What happens when liberals call for a boycott of a fast-food chain…

Not every restaurant is seeing sales moving accordingly with its customer satisfaction score. Forbes reports that McDonald’s, which has a relatively low score in comparison, has reportedly had a strong performance this year. Meanwhile, Papa John’s high score has surprisingly coincided with a drop in sales.

Cal Poly SLO faculty move to get 25-year-old Chick-Fil-A removed

What happens when liberals call for a boycott of a fast-food chain…

Guess where we will now plan to go for dinner on Saturday night…

From SF Gate: Fast food restaurant Chick-Fil-A may soon be kicked off campus at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, if a push by the school’s academic senate to get the chain franchise removed is underscored by university President Jeffrey Armstrong.

Faculty that make up the campus organization point to Chick-Fil-A Foundation’s history of donating to anti-LGBT causes, noting that its values are not consistent with those of the university.

In a vote Tuesday, the vast majority of the academic senate (38 out of 44) opted to recommend getting rid of the chicken chain’s location despite its 25-year tenure on campus.

“We don’t sell pornography in the bookstore and we don’t have a Hooters on campus — we already pre-select those kind of things based on our existing values,” said academic senate Vice Chair Thomas Gutierrez to the on-campus publication Mustang News. “This is a similar thing, the difference is we’re actually profiting from this. So our money, every dollar a student is spending at Chick-Fil-A, is going to these causes that are in violation of our values.”

In response, university spokesman Matt Lazier released two statements. One voiced a hesitation to “censor” a business because of different viewpoints, as KSBY reports. In a subsequent comment, Lazier stated that the school aims to be inclusive above all else:

“While university administration passionately disagrees with the values of some of the organizations the president of Chick-fil-A has chosen to make personal donations to, we do not believe in responding to intolerance with intolerance,” he told KSBY. “Rather, we must model our values of inclusion – that means upholding the rights of others to have different perspectives and ensuring there is space in our community for differing viewpoints and ideologies, even those that may be in direct conflict with our own.”

If the university does wind up deciding to remove the restaurant, it would need to curtail a five-year contract extension on the location, signed in 2018.

It would likely be expensive to terminate the contract, but the academic senate hopes that the university will see that “(business) partners are held to the same high diversity and inclusion standards of as the rest of the campus community.”

It’s not the first time this Chick-Fil-A location has sparked a debate. In 2012, about 50 protesters held a national “Kiss-In” at the Cal Poly franchise — the only one in San Luis Obispo County — to protest the company president’s anti-LGBT comments.

In the Bay Area, local city officials are similarly attempting to navigate what to do about Chick-Fil-A stores. In April, San Jose politicians openly considered ways to make a planned San Jose Airport Chick-Fil-A the “gayest in the country.”

Ben & Jerry’s unveils “Pecan Resist” ahead of mid-term elections

I have never bought Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. And I never will.

From USA Today: Ben & Jerry’s is launching a new flavor, Pecan Resist, which the company made to promote activism in the U.S.

The Limited Batch flavor – chocolate ice cream with white and dark fudge chunks, pecans, walnuts and fudge-covered almonds – is part of the company’s campaign to “lick injustice and champion those fighting to create a more just and equitable nation for us all,” it said Tuesday.

Ben & Jerry’s is donating $25,000 to each of four organizations working on behalf of people of color, Native Americans’ environmental justice and women – Color Of Change, Honor the Earth, Women’s March and Neta.

“The company cannot be silent in the face of President Trump’s policies that attack and attempt to roll back decades of progress on racial and gender equity, climate change, LGBTQ rights and refugee and immigrant rights – all issues that have been at the core of the company’s social mission for 40 years,” Ben & Jerry’s said in a statement.

The White House could not immediately be reached for comment.

The ice-cream maker made the announcement in the National Press Club’s First Amendment Room in Washington, D.C.

Ben & Jerry’s, which Unilever acquired in 2000, has used its sweet treats to promote its social justice agenda before. For example, Chubby Hubby became Hubby Hubby in 2009 to celebrate same sex marriage in Vermont, Chocolate Fudge Brownie was temporarily renamed Food Fight Fudge Brownie to support GMO labeling and EmpowerMint in 2016 was used to promote voting rights, the company said.

A half-cup serving of Pecan Resist contains 300 calories, 20 grams of fat and 25 grams of sugar, according to the flavor’s nutrition label.

A quick note for flavor-watchers: Pecan Resist was previously called New York Super Fudge Chunk. The flavor is sold only at participating Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops and through the company’s website.

Bay Area artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez designed the Pecan Resist pint. The carton reads, “Welcome to the resistance. Together, Pecan Resist!…We celebrate the diversity of our glorious nation & raise our spoons in solidarity for all Americans. Take a stand & join those on the front lines.”

A URL on the package directs people to information about the four organizations to which Ben & Jerry’s donated money.

Dipayan Biswas, a University of South Florida professor of marketing, said the new flavor will foster loyalty from some customers and prompt others to boycott Ben & Jerry’s – like what happened to Chick-fil-A in 2012 after CEO Dan Cathy spoke out against gay marriage (yeah, that boycott really did in Chick-fil-A, didn’t it? /sarc).

“Paradoxically, it makes good business sense. Brands, like politicians, often do well when they’re more polarizing,” he said. “A lot of people hate them for that. That’s fine. They get loyalty from other segments.”

But Biswas said he doesn’t know if the ice cream flavor will effect the change the company wants it to. “Research shows words have subliminal impact,” he said. “When you see the brand name, in this case, it can subtly remind people of certain things. I’m not sure it will (inspire) action.”

“Keep NYC Trash Free” images of Trump supporters show up on NYC garbage cans

Edgy! Now do supporters of Islam.

I don’t wear a MAGA cap (mine is NRA) but I do occasionally carry a Chick-fil-A cup…

From Fox News: Images of Trump supporters and Boston sports fans have turned up on garbage can and train station posters in New York City under the slogan “Keep NYC Trash Free.”

The artwork was reportedly done by street artist Winston Tseng and began showing up on trash cans where a public service announcement would normally be.

One shows a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat with a Confederate flag tattoo on his arm and a Chick-fil-A cup in his hand.

Another drawing shows a woman with the same red “MAGA” hat holding a Bible. 

Others took aim at Boston sports fans, showing a screaming man in a Tom Brady jersey and a Boston Red Sox hat holding a Sam Adams beer.

The posters were not authorized by New York City officials, initially appearing on trash cans on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Some have been removed, but others remain, according to PIX 11. Tseng denied that he was behind the posters in a statement to the station.
