Left Wing Shooter Inspired by Southern Poverty Law Center Sentenced to 25 Years

By Gary P Jackson

Back in February Floyd Corkins pleaded guilty to charges that included interstate transportation of a firearm, assault with intent to kill and committing an act of terrorism in connection with the shooting at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C., last August.

Leo Johnson, who wrestled Corkins to the ground, was injured by the shooter, but prevented what could have been a massacre.

CBS News reported at the time that Corkins told FBI agents he wanted to “kill as many as possible” to “make a statement against the people who work in that building … and with their stance against gay rights and Chick-fil-A.” Corkins was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in a bag when he was subdued. At a pre-trial hearing he admitted he intended to smear the sandwiches in the faces of his victims.

In a statement following the shooting, Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins alleged that the Southern Poverty Law Center had given Corkins a license to shoot by listing the Family Research Center as a hate group on its website.

At the time Erick Erickson noted:

He misspelled Laughner’s name. Jarred Lee Laughner was the DEMOCRAT who had stalked Congresswoman Gabby Giffords since early 2007, before pretty much ANYONE, including Laughner, knew who Sarah Palin was.

Laughner was a far left radical, like Corkins, and was angry at Congresswoman Giffords, because she wasn’t left wing enough, for his taste. Democrats and their media allies immediately blood libeled Governor Palin, and the entire Tea Party, after democrat Laughner shot Giffords and murdered numerous civilians in attendance at her rally.

As Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage Magazine points out, the Southern Poverty Law Center is just another radical left wing hate-group, disguised as an “advocacy” group. The only thing left wing groups like SPLC advocate is hatred towards all of those who disagree with their radical anti-American agenda.

As Greenfield notes, Morris Dees, co-founder of the SPLC doesn’t seem phased a bit by the fact his hate-group inspired a mass murderer, who luckily, failed.

From Twitchy:

In February, Floyd Lee Corkins, 29, pleaded guilty to shooting and wounding a security guard at the Family Research Center’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Early reports that Corkins was carrying a bag full of Chick-fil-A sandwiches turned out to be true; he told an FBI agent that he wanted to “kill as many as possible” to “make a statement against the people who work in that building … and with their stance against gay rights and Chick-fil-A.” He’d do that by shooting them and then smearing the sandwiches on the faces of his victims.

Today, Corkins was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the shooting. He had pleaded guilty to charges of committing an act of terrorism while armed, assault with intent to kill while armed, and interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition.

Corkins was found with a list of four conservative organizations taken directly from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s own “hate map.” WUSA9 reports that Corkin was also found with two fully loaded “magazine clips” and a box of 50 rounds of 9mm ammunition.

More from Twitchy here.

It should be noted, that all of the recent mass murderers, and would-be mass murderers, have been of the democrat party persuasion. And yet, every time one of these hate filled democrats goes off, and starts killing, the first people blamed are Conservatives, and lawful gun owners.

The media needs to be held accountable, for helping spread the hate and lies created by democrat party hate-groups, like the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Enough of this BS is enough.

Chick-fil-A Not Part of Romney Campaign but Evidently Supporting Gays in the Boy Scouts Is

By Gary P Jackson

Last Wednesday millions of Americans came together in support of Chick-fil-A. Black, white, gay and straight. Even a few that completely disagree with Chick-fil-A’s founder’s notion that we must protect traditional marriage, but celebrate his right to say it. So many came that Chick-fil-A restaurants were running out of food, and had record breaking sales.

Conservative leaders stood with Chick-fil-A, many stopping in for a bite. It was only natural the media would have asked the presumptive Republican nominee for President to comment. In response, Noted Profile in Courage™ Mitt Romney told the reporter: “That’s not something that’s part of my campaign.”

Unbelievable.

Some have taken Romney’s side in this, saying he was smart not to “fall for the trap,” noting the reporter also asked about Hillary Clinton’s aide and her ties to an Islamic terror organization. Let’s take a look at this “trap” the Romney apologists speak of:

The Chick-fil-A issue is rather cut and dry. You either stand with Liberty and Freedom, or you think it’s OK for a vicious mob to rule the day. This was a gift to Romney, a no brainer, and he punted. As to Huma Abedin, Hillary’s assistant, there has been plenty of evidence brought forward on this subject.

Mitt Romney is supposed to be a smart man, couldn’t he have found a way to stand with Chick-fil-A while saying something mild about Huma, like he would leave that investigation to the proper authorities?

Romney’s timidity, and lack of character, disturbs me greatly.

I didn’t comment on this initially though, because if I comment every time Romney does something dumb, or aggravating, I’d never get anything else done!

What has forced me to comment is a stand Romney HAS chosen to take. While Romney has no guts when it comes to standing for [or against] Chick-fil-A, and refuses to talk about a serious national security risk, he has no problem commenting on the Boy Scouts of America’s policy of not allowing openly gay men serve as leaders, and openly gay boys to become members.

A spokesperson for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has advised that the former Massachusetts governor disagrees with the Boy Scout’s current policy prohibiting open homosexuals from serving as members and leaders.

According to The Associated Press, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the news outlet in an email that Romney still stands by his beliefs that homosexual men should be able to serve in the organization. She specifically noted that Romney had outlined his views in 1994 during a political debate, and that his stance has not changed.

I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” Romney stated during the debate. “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.

As previously reported, last month, the Boy Scouts of America issued a statement reaffirming its policy prohibiting open homosexuals from joining the organization.

The committee’s work and conclusion is that this policy reflects the beliefs and perspectives of the BSA’s members, thereby allowing Scouting to remain focused on its mission and the work it is doing to serve more youth,” the statement said. “The review included forthright and candid conversation and extensive research and evaluationsboth from within Scouting and from outside of the organization.

The decision to reiterate and reaffirm the Scout’s current policy followed two years of deliberations from an eleven-member committee comprised of Boy Scout executives and other volunteers who represented “a diversity of perspectives and opinions.

When all was said and done, the committee concluded that the restriction served as “the best policy” for the Boy Scouts.

The current policy reads, “While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.”

Mitt Romney also recently reiterated his support for homosexual adoption. This past May, in an interview with Neil Cavuto of Fox News, he explained that while he is against the concept of homosexual “marriage,” he does believe that homosexual couples should be able to adopt children.

“[I]f two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child, in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something that people have a right to do,” Romney outlined. “But, to call that ‘marriage’ is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word.

He had first outlined his position on the matter in 1996 while talking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

Well, they are able to adopt children,” he said. “I’m not going to change that.

Again, Romney won’t weigh in on Chick-fil-A or Huma Abedin, but the campaign will offer up this?

Our readers know I don’t really care what two consenting adults do in their private life. I believe in traditional marriage, and do not want that concept changed. But if someone is gay, that’s who they are. Folks need to accept these things and go about their business.

I’m not even against gay couples adopting. Better to have a child adopted by two loving parents than to be raised an orphan.

But allowing openly gay men to be among of young, impressionable boys is just too much. Obviously, gay men are no more or less likely to be pedophiles than straight men, but the situation is ripe for trouble. It’s an unnecessary risk.

If Romney had just said he stood with the BSA, as a private organization, to decide what was best for their group, that would have been fine. But Romney took it further by advocating for gays to be able to join.

Mitt Romney claims he supports traditional marriage, but as I reported in June of 2011, it was Romney, by executive fiat, who created same-sex marriage in Massachusetts:

While the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court declared that Massachusetts’ marriage law was unconstitutional in the summer of 2003, the Court explicitly declared that the original law, which does not authorize same-sex marriage, was left intact. “Here, no one argues that striking down the marriage laws is an appropriate form of relief.“

The court acknowledged that the original law, left intact by its ruling, banned homosexual marriages and gave the legislature 180 days to “take such action as it may deem appropriate.” The legislature did precisely nothing.

Gov. Romney, acting on his own, ordered town clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples on May 17, 2004, in contravention of Massachusetts state law and under threat of termination.

Gov. Romney in essence told these town clerks that if they did not break the law, he would fire them.

Town clerks meekly complied, and became lawbreakers in the process. Massachusetts state marriage law is quite explicit: “Whoever, not being duly authorized by the laws of the commonwealth undertakes to join persons in marriage therein shall be punished by a fine of not more than five hundred dollars or by imprisonment for not more than one year, or both.”

Re-read that carefully. Town clerks must be “authorized by the laws of the commonwealth” to issue marriage licenses. They are not allowed to do so under the authorization of the Supreme Judicial Court or the governor. The “laws of the commonwealth” to this day do not authorize the granting of same-sex marriage licenses.

Massachusetts state marriage law has never been changed. Same-sex marriage is still illegal in the Bay State.

So the bottom line here is that Gov. Romney broke state law and ordered his town clerks to do the same.

After Gov. Romney legalized same-sex marriage by fiat in a burst of executive branch activism, Connecticut’s Supreme Court followed suit in 2008 and Iowa’s Supreme Court in 2009. Same-sex marriage was not legalized through the legislative process anywhere in the United States until Vermont’s legislature overrode a gubernatorial veto in April of 2009.

There are just two states now, New Hampshire being the other, where the elected representatives of the people have solemnized same-sex partnerships. In every other case, same-sex marriage has been forced down the throats of residents by an activist judiciary or, in the case of Massachusetts, by an activist governor imposing an activist ruling on his own citizens.

For time and eternity, Mitt Romney will go down in history as the man who abused the power of his office to give the United States homosexual matrimony.

Like most Conservatives I have always viewed Mitt Romney as a poll tested, homogenized, milquetoast politician, with no core principles or values whatsoever.

We’ve all always thought of Romney as a flip-flopper, a human windsock, if you will. Much like Claude Raines’ Captain Renault in Casablanca, who tells Major Strasser: “I have no conviction, if that’s what you mean. I blow with the wind, and the prevailing wind happens to be from Vichy.

But is this really true?

A lot of us Conservatives have resigned ourselves to the fact that Romney is the presumptive Republican nominee, and nothing is going to change that. We’ve consoled ourselves that Mitt’s infamous reputation as a spineless, blow with the wind, unprincipled opportunist, wasn’t a bad thing, because if we elect more Conservatives to the House and Senate, they will most certainly keep Romney in line. Their steadfastness would overcome his liberal tendencies.

I submit that we were all wrong.

The prevailing winds are filled with the beautiful bouquet of strong, fresh brewed T.E.A. And yet, Mitt Romney has refused to embrace the ideas and values that patriotic Tea Party Americans hold so dear. Romney has done absolutely nothing to show us that he will listen to the will of the people and act accordingly.

We face a dangerous dilemma. On the one hand, Barack Obama is deliberately, and systematically destroying our country. He must be defeated at all cost. Mitt Romney is the only one in a position to make that happen.

Can anyone, with any amount of certainty, tell me what we get if Romney is successful?

Tammy Bruce Talks About Chick-fil-A and Failed “Kiss-in”

A Chick-fil-A employee hands out water to a group of haters protesting the restaurant. Chick-fil-A employes nationwide handed out free water to protesters. But Chick-fil-A is supposed to be the bad guy. EAT MOR CHIKIN!

By Gary P Jackson

Tammy Bruce was on Fox and Friends this morning talking about Chick-fil-A and the really pathetic “kiss-in” that was staged on Friday by militant gay activists. As Tammy points out, on Wednesday, supporters of traditional marriage, and freedom from oppression, flooded Chick-fil-As nationwide, producing record sales. The “kiss-in” had few participants and some vandalism.

If you haven’t see it yet, Twitchy has more on the hatemongering jackass who vandalized a restaurant.

Tammy makes a lot of strong points, including the fact these militant gays are actually hurting their cause. She’s right in saying most Conservatives are fine with gays, so long as they don’t try to infringe on others’ rights.

She also notes these haters have become nothing more than fascists, but that applies to liberals in general these days, so she’s just stating the obvious here.

It’s kind of ironic though, as those claiming they are being oppressed, are actually the oppressors. That’s always the way when dealing with liberals.

Confirmed: Record Setting Wednesday for Chick-fil-A

By Gary P Jackson

Yesterday I ran a collection of tweets and photos from around the country, showing huge crowds and long lines at Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide.

It looked to be an unprecedented event, but one could only speculate.

Yesterday Rick Warren tweeted this:

Today, the company confirms it. Though they don’t release actual numbers, they say it was indeed a record setting day.

CNN offered this:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Chick-fil-A says it set a sales record on Wednesday, the day that supporters rallied around the fast-food chain amid a debate over its president’s opposition to same-sex marriage.

The chain won’t release sales numbers, but “we can confirm reports that it was a record-setting day,” said Steve Robinson, Chick-fil-A’s executive vice president of marketing.

[ …. ]

The controversy started after an interview with the fast-food restaurant chain’s president and COO, Dan Cathy, appeared in The Baptist Press on July 16. He weighed in with his views on family.

We are very much supportive of the familythe biblical definition of the family unit,” Cathy said. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Chick-fil-A appears to have set a company record in sales on Wednesday, a day on which Americans were encouraged to show their support for the fast-food restaurant whose leadership has drawn both criticism and praise in recent weeks for its opposition to same-sex marriage.

The privately held company declined to give specific sales figures but released a statement to the Los Angeles Times confirming that frenzied sales of chicken sandwiches and cross-cut waffle fries had made for a record-setting day.

We are very grateful and humbled by the incredible turnout of loyal Chick-fil-A customers on August 1 at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country,” said Steve Robinson, executive vice president of marketing, in the statement. “While we don’t release exact sales numbers, we can confirm reports that it was a record-setting day.”

The company, which started in 1946 and now has more than 1,615 locations nationwide, recorded annual sales of more than $4.1 billion last year.

Robinson said the Atlanta-based company was “grateful and humbled by the incredible turnout of loyal Chick-fil-A customers” who showed up at outlets in droves coast-to-coast. Customers often waited in long lines, many weathering the blistering summer sun, just to get in the front door.

Such images — as well as those of crowded Chick-fil-A counters and long lines of cars snaking through the drive-thru lanes — created a social media frenzy on Wednesday as they were shared and reshared on a variety of platforms, including Twitter.

The images suggested that sales were indeed going gangbusters, and confirmation of those suspicions arrived when Orange County Pastor Rick Warren tweeted a snippet of a conversation he’d had with Dan Cathy, president of the popular fast-food chain:

@DanCathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today, with 7 more hrs to go in the West. #OutOfChicken

The company, which proudly abides by Bible-based principles and closes its doors to sales on Sundays, stressed in its statement that Chick-fil-A did not promote Wednesday’s turnout.

It also stressed that its employees abide by a service tradition to “treat every person with honor, dignity and respect — regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender.

Robinson’s statement alluded to rumors that another protest (including “kiss-ins“) will be staged at Chick-fil-As on Friday by same-sex marriage supporters, which in turn has led to rumors of counter-counter-protests … you get the idea.

The company says Friday will just be another day, and another opportunity: “We understand from news reports that Friday may present yet another opportunity for us to serve with genuine hospitality, superior service and great food.

Read more and see local video coverage here.

Fox News has it’s report here.

ABC has it’s version here.

There are hundreds of local news reports confirming the same robust sales nationwide.

I find it interesting to see the numbers of Blacks interviewed by the media. Though many of then vote democrat, Blacks tend to be very traditional when it comes to things like marriage and religion. They tend to highly oppose gay marriage. I’m surprised the media interviewed so many, knowing the narrative they’d love to push.

For the record, I don’t particularly care if a person is gay or straight. Like Dr Martin Luther King counseled, I’d rather judge folks by the content of their character. That said, marriage is a religious ceremony, and a concept that dates back thousands of years. It is supposed to be between a man and a woman. It’s no more difficult than that.

I aggravates me to see militant, and often hate-filled, radicals attack others for simply holding beliefs that are shared with the vast majority of people from around the world and every religion .

I’m also curious why these hate-filled, militant activists never, ever attack Muslim businesses or the Muslim religion. Islam teaches gays must be put to death. Christianity is just against two of them marrying. Which is worse?

Christianity teaches “love the sinner, hate the sin.” Islam teaches “kill em all!

Of course, we all know the answer why these cowards choose to direct all their hate toward Christians, instead of Muslims. Christians don’t behead folks or strap bombs on their children and send them into crowds.

It would do the radicals good to remember which religion is more tolerant.

Chick-fil-A Overwhelmed with Customers Nationwide on “Appreciation Day”

By Gary P Jackson

EAT MOR CHIKIN!

This is the second Wednesday in a row that Americans have decided to show their support for Chick-fill-A by having an “Appreciation Day.”

I’ve been following this deal on Twitter most of the day, and there were reports of restaurants running out of breakfast fixins and starting to sell lunch as early as 9 AM!

There’s no way I could get every tweet for you, as my time-line has been just as overwhelmed with Chick-fil-A reports and photos as Chick-fill-A has with customers!

Here’s a sampling from famous and not so famous folks from around the country.

Jonah Goldberg kinda says it all:

Tea Party leader and all around good guy Lloyd Marcus tweeted:

Of course, these days no event is complete without a bunch of hate from liberals. It’s their only contribution to society!

Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy has all of the gems, such as these:

BTW: Here’s Karl’s Twitter profile:

Dancer Singer Actor Acrobat Choreographer. Current: Hey Sailor MAC. Recent: How To Succeed In Business and La Cage on Broadway. Love my Pit mix NARA!
Los Angeles / NYC

They make it too easy!

Those are just two of the many hate-filled “hope they all die” tweets from “loving”, “tolerant” democrats. Twitchy has a ton more here.

EAT MOR CHIKIN!

Sarah Palin: It Would Have Been a Mistake NOT to Have Answered the Call

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin says Dick Cheney “misfired” when he told ABC News it was a mistake for her to have been chosen as the candidate in 2008. She was obviously referring to Cheney’s incident with attorney Harry Whittington, who he accidentally shot in the face.

Appearing On the Record with Greta van Susteren, the two initially talked about Chick-fil-A, and then the resounding victory by Ted Cruz here in Texas. It was when the talk turned to Dick Cheney though, that Sarah got animated and forceful. She defended her record, her abilities, and what she did on the campaign trail, with gusto. And rightly so.

Greta mentions a bit of research she did, looking into polling before and after Sarah was chosen as the vice presidential nominee. It shows that the only time John McCain led in the polls was after he picked her. A lead he maintained until he suspended his campaign to go back to Washington and vote with Obama for TARP.

This is the Sarah Palin we’ve come to love. It’s obvious she despises the Republican Establishment™, the “good old boys” as much as they despise her. She deliciously makes it known when asked about the upcoming Republican convention, noted she’s been “approached” about going, but has made no decision one way or the other.

Allen West Goes to Chicago Gives Democrats Hell: I Came Here To Open A Chick-Fil-A

By Gary P Jackson

Allen West walks into the belly of the beast and gives the beast hell!

From the Huffington Post:

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) visited Chicago on Monday and took the opportunity to re-inject himself into an ongoing debate over Chick-fil-A and the fast food chain president’s comments about gay marriage.

I had to come up from down South because I wanted to try to open up a Chick-fil-A franchise here in Chicago,” West said in an interview with CNBC’s Rick Santelli from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade.

His office later told Politicker that he was only “joking” about looking into opening a Chick-fil-A franchise, but the implications of his comments were clear nonetheless.

Earlier this month, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy, a well-known Christian and backer of anti-gay religious organizations, told an interviewer that he was “guilty as charged” when it came to his opposition to marriage equality.

Don’t you love how the nimrods over at HuffPo characterize Dan Cathy as “anti-gay” simply because he, like most Americans, opposes gay marriage. Hell, until he needed to pander for every single vote, the President of the United States was on the record as being against gay marriage. Funny thing though, you never saw the militant, violent, hate-filled gay activists attack him.

Not all gays are militant, nor are all gays pushing for the end of traditional marriage. Most are quite reasonable human beings. But the vile, hate-filled liberals give the rest a bad name.

As for Allen West, good on him!

Chick-fil-A VP Don Perry Dies Suddenly, Liberals Celebrate With Their Usual Hate-Fest

By Gary P Jackson

Don Perry, Chick-fil-A’s Vice President of Public Relations passed away this morning from an apparent heart attack. Our condolences go out to his family, and everyone at Chick-fil-A.

From Alex Pappas:

The head of public relations at Chick-fil-A died Friday morning of an apparent heart attack, according to the company.

The employee, Donald A. Perry, was the company’s vice president of corporate public relations.

Erica M. Martinez, a Chick-fil-A spokeswoman, confirmed the news Friday afternoon in a statement to The Daily Caller.

We are saddened to report the news to you that our dear friend Don Perry, vice president of public relations, passed away suddenly this morning,” she said. “Don was a member of our Chick-fil-A family for nearly 29 years.”

Martinez added: “For many of you in the media, he was the spokesperson for Chick-fil-A. He was a well-respected and well-liked media executive in the Atlanta and University of Georgia communities, and we will all miss him.”

WBRL News 3 in Georgia reported the cause of the death to be a heart attack.

Perry joined Chick-fil-A in the 1980s.

I came on board in 1983 to literally start the public relations function here, because the company was young, growing and emerging,” Perry told Georgia Magazine. “The company was trying to move beyond just a small, regional family chain to become a national brand.”

Perry is portrayed as protective of the company in a 2003 Fortune Small Business story. He is quoted questioning the motives of a reporter in a piece about the religious beliefs of the company’s founder. “What would you like to do? Are you going to continue on a religious kind of thing, or are you going to concentrate more on the Chick-fil-A business?”

He became an elder of his church in 1997, according to information posted on the website of Hillcrest Church of Christ. The church said Perry enjoyed “leading his church fellowship cell group, as well as working to help maintain harmony in the congregation.”

One of the challenges sometimes is helping to reconcile differing views among members,” Perry said, according to the church, “but we work to keep unity of the faith.”

This is just tragic. A well like, hard working man, lost in his prime. Having suffered a heart attack earlier this year myself, I can tell you, it refocuses you. I’m saddened that Don wasn’t as lucky as I was.

Of course, the hatred from liberals never stops, even at times when human decency would dictate otherwise. The folks at Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy had the unpleasant job of cataloging the hate. You can check it out here.

At least Don Perry has gone on to a much better place, where hate doesn’t come into play.

Rahm Emanuel: No to Chick-Fil-A, But Anti-Gay Nation of Islam Restaurant Okay. Boston Mayor Supports Radical Islam as Well

By Gary P Jackson

To be quite honest, I can’t wait for supper, because I’m going to load up on chicken and waffle fries from the Chick-fil-A down the road from here. Might even grab a fruit salad.

Democrats are congenital hypocrites, so it should be no surprise that while Chicago Mayor, and all around thug, Rahm Emanuel is trashing Chick-fil-A as “not having Chicago values” because the company’s president isn’t keen on gay marriage, he’s fine with radical Islam, which has a zero tolerance policy towards homosexuals. And by zero tolerance, I mean they put them to death. That’s a tad more harsh than being against gay marriage, wouldn’t you say?

Boston’s Mayor who as BreitbartTV reports just “banned” Chick-fil-A in his city, is also down with anti-gay radical Islam, and has put his money, or should I say the city’s money, where his mouth is, giving the anti-gay group one hell of a deal on city owned property so they can build a gay hating mosque.

BizPac Review’s Michele Kirk reports:

In an article posted today in the online publication Legal Insurrection, Nation of Islam can open a restaurant in Chicago, but not Chick-fil-A? , author William A. Jacobson reveals the hypocrisy and dangerous precedent it sets to condemn private businesses for the religious philosophies of the owners or the staff.
 
Jacobson points out that Chicago’s, Rahm Emanuel is supporting the call to block Chick-fil-A in Chicago, yet the city recently allowed Louis Farrakan, of the Nation of Islam, to re-open a restaurant there.

He also shows that the same mayor leading the charge against Chick-fil-A in Boston, Mayor Thomas M. Menino, allegedly has a double standard when it comes to the “homophobic” argument.

Jacobson includes the following excerpt from Michael Graham (h/t DaTechGuy) Mayor Menino Donated Tax Dollars To “Homophobic” Group In Boston!:

This is the Islamic Society of Boston’s mosque in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood, a.k.a. “Menino’s Mosque.”

Mayor Menino “sold” $2 million worth of city property to the ISB for $175,000,despite their well-documented links to Muslim extremism. The mosque teaches a form of Islam that condemns homosexuals to death.

And Menino won’t let a guy spend his own money opening a restaurant because he doesn’t support same-sex marriage? Hey, Mayor Moron—when we the last time Chick-Fil-A stoned a gay guy to death?

Also added is a video of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakan’s thoughts on gay marriage.

Read more here.

As we have seen over and over from democrats, all things Islam, no matter how radical and violent are good. Anything Christian, not so much.

****UPDATE****

As I was about to publish this, I saw that Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has walked back his comments and attempt to “ban” Chick-fil-A in his city.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has stepped back from his threat to block Chick-Fil-A from opening a new store in the city.

His announcement comes a day after Antoine Dodson shared his definitive opinion about the controversy via YouTube.

According to the Boston Herald, Menino said, “I can’t do that. That would be interference to his rights to go there,” referring to company president Dan Cathy, who drew the mayor’s wrath by going public with his views against same-sex marriage.

The mayor added: “I make mistakes all the time. That’s a Menino-ism.

When asked whether Dodson’s YouTube video influenced Menino’s decision to back down, the mayor’s spokesperson Katie Ward said, “I can almost guarantee he has no idea who Antoine Dodson is. He was not influenced by this video.”

As for Rahm, he sends his regards:
