Chick-Fil-A Can’t Catch A Break… Not Everyone Values Free Speech

Chick-Fil-A is delicious. They have Grade A chicken that blows the competition away. If that were not enough they also take care of their customers with better customer service than most fast food places.

These two things alone make them a great place to eat. But some Liberals are still upset that the owner of the company believes marriage should be between a man and a woman. So they are doing their best to hurt Chick-Fil-A.

Chick-fil-A will no longer be opening up shop inside Buffalo Niagara International Airport, after a backlash erupted regarding the company’s alleged “anti-LGBTQ rhetoric” and views.

On Thursday, hospitality management company Delaware North and the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) gave the green light to renovation plans that would have brought the chicken chain to the Western New York air hub, New York Upstate reports.

Assemblyman Sean Ryan, meanwhile, took to Twitter to call out the NFTA for the decision, arguing that it was wrong for the state-funded entity to do business “with corporations who fund hateful and divisive groups” – specifically, Chick-fil-A’s financial contributions to groups that fuel “anti-LGBTQ rhetoric.”

Ryan to Twitter where he expressed his outrage about Chick-Fil-A.

I strongly urge the NFTA to reverse this decision,” Ryan continued. “I don’t believe the leadership of the NFTA intends to help spread hate and discrimination, but allowing a corporation like Chick-fil-A to do business at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will help to fund continued divisive anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. New York is a welcoming state that celebrates diversity.”

“The views of Chick-fil-A do not represent our state or the Western New York community, and businesses that support discrimination have no place operating in taxpayer-funded public facilities,” he added.

Later, after the NFTA reversed the decision to greenlight Chick-fil-A, Ryan celebrated it on Twitter. “I applaud the decision that has been made to remove Chick-fil-A from plans for the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Thank you to everyone who reached out to share their opinion.”

He continued: “We hope in the future the NFTA will make every effort to contract with businesses that adhere to anti-discrimination policies, and we’re confident another vendor who better represents the values of the Western New York community will replace Chick-fil-A as a part of this project in the very near future.”

I feel sorry for the people at that airport. They are missing out all because an assemblyman and his equally biased ilk have a different opinion. Chick-Fil-A does not discriminate they hire and serve whoever. When the owner’s opinion first came to light people protested. And what did Chick-Fil-A do? They outclassed them by serving them drinks and food accepting that they have a right to protest.
