Chick-Fil-A Lineup: Great Moments in Civil Obedience

chik fil a lineupSometimes there’s a glimmer, sometimes there’s a flare. Sometimes it’s just a buncha idiots standin over there.

It’s for historians to determine the great moments — the slivers of time that determine the course of a nation. Great (or not so great moments) — the times that show without a doubt the trajectory of a county. For America — was it the establishment of The Patriot Act?, Bush v Gore?…..or perhaps the first bombs to hit Iraq? I’m thinking that the point of no turning back was the moment so many pasty bastards stood in line last week at Chick-Fil-A’s across the nation. Idiocracy has been fulfilled. The Mayans (and Mike Judge were right).

They’ve been playing Rock, Paper, Shredder with all legal protections for citizens, but the silence has been at 11. The average American simply didn’t care. Until it involved fast food and sodomy, and a ridiculous perception that protecting free speech means supporting guys who use their money to advance hate.

Oh, those dupes went rogue. So rogue they bought heaps of food-like substances. Because somebody (generally their church leaders) told them to. They bought some fattening, unnatural chow as a political stance. What’s next? Napping for Victory? Urinating for Unity? Such personal sacrifices. I’m gonna get me some Type II Diabetes for Jesus.

But of course, you know, it’s all because they are ROGUE. The division between what many Americans think they are (bold and independent) and what they really are (scared and weak) has probably never been greater. Stand in alliance with a guy who helps fund groups that will cause pain for another group of humans. What bravery. They perceive this to be about freedom, and a bizarre notion that religion is under assault in this very religious country — not that it’s about bullies running off at the mouth about those they don’t approve of, and using resources to make life harder for others. But it’s because of the Bible, of course.

Here we go- I can’t help myself:

chick fil a palinsI’m willing to bet lots of women were standing in line at Chick-Fil-A during their periods. Umm, pretty sure the Bible isn’t okay with that. Get thee to a shed and hide during your unclean time. But of course, it’s always about picking and choosing which nonsense you feel compelled to support. I blame the Kotex plutocrats for getting that part of the Bible ignored. They have a lot of power.

But you know, places like Uganda have stirrings of a death penalty being enacted for being gay. Hate funds come from America to fuel that sort of thing. And it’s a nice test ground for extremism. It also makes you understand how jackasses like Phelps and company can afford to travel so much.

There are deep pockets out there who fund this ideology. The blood of every scared kid who commits suicide because they decide “it’s not gonna get better”….well, that blood is on the hands of these people who deal in hate and manipulation. The extremist slide is greased. But I’m just falling in line, getting outraged, too. This deserves pretty much nothing but ridicule….that slices through the bullshit better than appeals to reason.

And oh how the Chick-Fil-A lines buzz:

“It’s so hard baby, to be so rogue. You just don’t know. I have pain from it, you know, the rogue. It’s so hard to live in a nation that has 80% identification with my Christianity. I feel so alone.”

“I know, I know- we are always getting’ hit by leftist sex forces……. I’ll have a large order of Waffle Fries, a Large Chicken Sandwich. And a large diet Coke, please.”

Many future straight marriages were sealed that day. Get past the purity ring put on her finger from Daddy, and there’s potential.

“Met momma when her Christian light shined like a hetero beacon across the glow of the chicken grease. Me and my – you know, rogueness-well, I asked for her hand. Right there in the food court. I know my lord approves. ”
Chapter 11, page 32 “The History of the Decline and Fall of the American Empire”

A nation that once utilized civil disobedience as a tactic to unhinge underlying divisive practice became one that purchased mass produced, chemical laden food in an attempt to group identify with those whose ideology was firmly in place already. The perceived “victimhood” of the group simply enhanced the corporate profit margins, allowing wealthy individuals to continue wielding disproportionate power in the halls of government.

Agendas of division were selected for and the masses responded as expected by the looting class. This ushered in the leadership of President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Chick Fil A Herbert Camacho, a man uniquely qualified to lead the disintegrating nation.

Ah, Hick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, 2012.
