A self-described Democratic digital strategist and Gen-Z activist, who attends an Ivy League school (of course,) is proposing that consumers abandon Chick-fil-A permanently rather than just during Pride Month in June.
Consumers don’t appear to be receptive to going along with a banty boycott, however.
Perhaps this recommendation to some degree arises because the popular fast-food chain known for its chicken sandwiches appears to be one of the few big-name corporate entities that are not, so far, signaling its virtue with social media Pride logos, the latter which billionaire Elon Musk recently playfully mocked . Chick-fil-A, with its Christian-centric company values, and the left have been at odds over the years in the context of LGBTQ issues.
The aforementioned influencer, Florida Man Jack Cocchiarella, took to Twitter to write to his nearly 200,000 followers that “If you can give up Chick-fil-A for Pride Month, you can give it up for the rest of your life.” If you can give up Chick-fil-A for Pride Month, you can give it up for the rest of your life. — Jack Cocchiarella (@JDCocchiarella) June 4, 2022 The suggestion has received about 36,000 Twitter likes so far, assuming the statistics are accurate and are not artificially inflated by bots.
Whether social media has any effect on the revenue stream of the restaurant franchise with about 2,700 locations that closes its stores on Sunday is another matter entirely.
According to the Franchise Times , moreover, 2021 was a banner year for Chick-fil-A. “Revenue reached $5.8 billion in 2021 compared to $4.3 billion in 2020, an increase of 33.3 percent. Comprehensive earnings were $1.2 billion in 2021 compared to $715.9 million in 2020, an increase of 67.3 percent.”
The activist is accordingly getting a lot of liberal Twitter applause for politicizing poultry, but many others are crying foul about the idea. I’m […]
Don’t wait until food shortages get REALLY bad before stocking up. Get a three-month’s supply now while it’s still available.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
