What Really Happened?

It's been almost a week now since multiples of thousands of Americans showed up at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country to demonstrate, well, to demonstrate what exactly?

If you listen to the media, the liberal and conservative media, the chief reason they came was to protest the blatant attack on free speech made by liberals and, worse, liberal office holders.  That is, while they may not agree with Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy's views on homosexuality and homosexual marriage, they support nonetheless his right to express himself freely.  And it's true, that motivation does in large measure explain the turnout. 

But the dirty little secret (as Rush Limbaugh likes to say) is that a great majority of those who showed up do in fact agree with Cathy.  They resent deeply the Left's attempt not only to silence them for holding similar views, but even more so their design to make those views altogether socially unacceptable.

Americans are tolerant, but tolerance is not the same as approval. What the Left knows is that in spite of their long-term and virtually comprehensive efforts to normalize homosexuality, most Americans still don't agree with them.


  1. Well said Sage. We all know that tolerance is not what is wanted. You are right when you say that tolerance is not the same as approval. What the left wants, want it needs, is for someone to tell them it’s okay because in their hearts they know its not.

  2. As a result of the massive show of support for Cathy and Chick-fil-A, expect the Left and their enablers in the elite media to drop this issue, uh, yesterday.
