On this, the day of delicious, non-sexualized chicken sandwiches cooked to juicy perfection, Glenn Reynolds sums up the left’s ginned up Chick-fil-a “controversy” quite nicely.
To which I’ll add but one further observation: Rahm Emanuel worked for Barack Obama when Barack Obama’s stated views on same sex marriage matched precisely those of Mr Cathy.
And yet we heard nary a peep about the President’s values not comporting with the politically correct values the left is now demanding — as a function of government-approved speech — that all of us wishing to do business must assume. Or else.
– Which suggests to me that either Emanuel knew back then that Obama was being disingenuous before his conveniently-timed “evolution,” or else Emanuel himself was a one-time bigot just like Obama, whose values didn’t match that of the city that created him politically.
But then, predictable.
