How Romney Can Profit from the Chick-Fil-A National Drive-In

Yesterday people waited twice as long to buy a chicken sandwich than they did to vote for Barack Obama in 2008. If Lefties feel like Apollo Creed, take note, that was your “Rocky” moment.

The Chick-Fil-A mass demonstration proved several things. It proved, regardless of the meme the media wants to sell you, that 75% of Americans are solidly opposed to gay marriage, and it is an issue that will cause people to postpone all other forms of recreation, hop into their cars and drive around a tan stucco building for 45 minutes just to buy a sandwich. There are not enough dollars in the gay establishment’s coffers to offset this.

So I guess we can say President Obama chose poorly.

It also proved that at least 85% of American are solidly in favor of free speech, including Whoopi Goldberg, and a host of others of the Left who are either for or indifferent to gay marriage.

It also proved that the African-American community is deeply divided about this issue of gay marriage, and have become so public about it, through church and religious leaders, as to drive a wedge in that community, all on the basis of the same religious morality that has separated conservatives from liberals, right from left, Republican from Democrat, and Dr Van Helsing from Dracula, for a century or more.

And yesterday proved that nothing the national media can do can stop it. A sizeable portion of the African-American leans heavily religious and anti-Dracula on the issue of morality, and this issue will be driven home weekly in pulpits around the country, where national pressers and appearances on the Beck show won’t matter. They have become so vocal maybe, just maybe, it will cause them to rethink other draculian Democrat issues that always seem to keep their feet close to the fire, then do the unthinkable and not vote for Obama in November.

In the words of Yogi Berra (sort of), If the people don’t want to come out to vote, not even Obama can stop them.

(I recommend you pay attention to total black turnout in November, as few blacks will ever show up to vote for a Republican…although this gay marriage issue may change that, as it did on the gay marriage referendum in North Carolina, where they showed up in droves.)

Again, it seems Obama chose unwisely, all for a few pieces of silver.

But what about Romney?

Although no one is calling Obama’s change of heart on gay marriage a “flip flop,” so as not to confuse the flip flops they want to lay at Romney’s feet, it is. Only Obama’s flip flop on gay marriage is increasingly being exposed as anything but an evolution of the heart.  Rahm Emanuel’s shout-out against Chick-fil-A, and Obama’s quiet assent-by-silence, highlights a level of hubris even the most notorious of mercenary flip-floppers (e.g., Al Gore and Bill Clinton on abortion) couldn’t match.

What we’ve learned from Rahm Emanuel and other Democrat leaders is that not only can their new brood of leftists stand for a thing one day (both Obama, Emanuel, and his whole administration were against gay marriage only six months ago), then be against it the next, but that they feel completely at ease in moving quickly to demonize, ostracize, even criminalize (as Emanuel threatened) the act as if they’d never ever been on the other side.

If there is such a thing as criminal hubris, this is it. And Romney should capitalize on it, for Americans have already proved, by spending an hour at least of their time, plus $3 in gas, just to show that Obama and his pals have moved a bridge way, way too far.

What is being exposed here is a group of people who will have no trouble showing us photos of priests and nuns being frog marched off to jail for refusing to provide free contraception to the sexually incontinent. They will have no difficulty in sending IRS goons into homes to drag away citizens for refusing to buy health insurance. They already have proved they have no problem providing Mexican drug lords with guns to shoot down innocent Mexican civilians.

As Whoopi Goldberg pointed out, these repetitive missteps beyond the pale may even sink into the fabric of more conventional liberals about the First Amendment rights they hold holy.

There is a great opportunity for Mr Romney if he’ll only seize the moment, or the Devil by the tail. His choice.

  1. Here’s hoping.  At the same time, if the alternative media sympathetic to constitutional conservatism would quit propping up MSM journalists, like Dave Weigel, Ezra Klein, and others too numerous to mention, and would call them out by name, perhaps some of the shame that falls off their backs would trickle down to that gaggle in Poland, who are despicable scum.

    By name, people.  By name and organization.  This time, it’s personal.

  2. Criminalizing thought, that’s what the Left seeks and is the outcome of communism.  It used to be called brainwashing, but now it’s even more than political correctness.  We have to push back and fight back.  

  3. It would appear that this branch of the Left – the radical, Marxist/Alinksyite bunch that is in the driver’s seat and moving their agenda aggressively ahead in a lawless, reckelss fashion – continues to make ridiculous, own-goal mistakes based on a fatally flawed assumption.

    They think America is Europe, and they think Americans are Europeans. They believe they can do to America in what the Nazis did to Germany in the 30’s. However, they cannot account for what they cannot fathom (because they are stupid, at the root of it), and that is that the American spirit is fundamentally a spirit of freedom, (true) justice, and (true) equality of opportunity.

    Is is bred down to the bone, and in spite of nearly a century of indoctrination, decay, control of academia, and control of government, they cannot force Americans to seek comfort at the cost of freedom.

    So they do what they always do, except more. And they get smashed in the  mouth and knocked out of the ring, again and again. Further, they have made the utterly fatal mistake of waking up and angering the bear.  Had they taken another 10 years and finessed these things past us, they might well have succeeded. They just didn’t understand why they had to do that.
