For Pete’s sake, it’s Chick-fil-A not an alien invasion


Are you freaking kidding me?

Chick-fil-A has come to New York City and the New Yorker magazine is treating it like the island of Manhattan is being invaded by the Borg.

It’s a chicken joint for Pete’s sake!

The writer of this absurd article is one Dan Piepenbring who, apparently, is the official arbiter of all things acceptable in Manhattan.

Here, let me give you a little taste of this humorless dink’s article:

It’s worth asking why Americans fell in love with an ad in which one farm animal begs us to kill another in its place. Most restaurants take pains to distance themselves from the brutalities of the slaughterhouse; Chick-fil-A invites us to go along with the Cows’ Schadenfreude.

Are you kidding me?!

Most people who saw the ads with the cows saying, “Eat mor chikin” had a nice chuckle.

Not so this insufferable idiot from the New Yorker.

Honestly, I’m embarrassed for this guy.

Read the whole thing and you are left with the distinct impression that the only food he would eat “mor” of contains soy.

Defenders of Chick-fil-A point out that the company donates thousands of pounds of food to New York Common Pantry, and that its expansion creates jobs. The more fatalistic will add that hypocrisy is baked, or fried, into every consumer experience—that unbridled corporate power makes it impossible to bring your wallet in line with your morals. Still, there’s something especially distasteful about Chick-fil-A, which has sought to portray itself as better than other fast food: cleaner, gentler, and more ethical, with its poultry slightly healthier than the mystery meat of burgers. Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are inflected with this suburban piety.

Good grief. Take the stick out!

It’s a freaking chicken joint!

What a complete and utter snob.

I guess it never occurred to him that he doesn’t have to eat there.

    You know, I’m from your neck of the woods (more Southern Tier actually) and when I was growing up we always thought of NYC as part of NJ – primarily because we discovered that NYC is mostly populated with clowns like this. Do you think NJ would even want NYC?

      I wrote a column in 2013 suggesting we sell it to Massachusetts — and throw in Andrew Cuomo as a gift with purchase. Like a tote bag or soap-on-a-rope.

        For sure, the Cuomos got to go. But if we also add Long Island; and the counties of Rockland, Westchester, and Albany, it would be a win-win for the helplessly blue Massachusetts and would turn New York State red. Imagine that!!

    Dianny, the New Yorker asshat’s major objection seemed not to be the food, but he was offended by a Christian company that has values and standards—both of which he clearly lacks.

    I wonder how many haughty anti-Muslim or anti-atheist columns that douchebag has written?

    New Yorker magazine now hates Christians. No big surprise there.

    Another reason why I avoid NYC.

    I’m sure he admires the blessings of halal food. But eats haram when no one is looking – hypocrite, bigot.

    Just because the Cathy family outfit, which has delicious food by the way, has tried toi bring some decent fare to a wasteland, the New Yorker is upset. I have felt for a long time that New York City and the surrounding areas earn to rejection of decent people. NY attitudes of superiority and grandness are based on an illusion. NYC really does suck. Chik Fil A is too good for that dump.

    “Honestly, I’m embarrassed for this guy.”

    Seriously, why waste the emotional capital that could be spent on others more worthwhile?

    The new word for the “crazy liberals” is “unstable liberals”, it’s all the same but kind of fun to mix it around.

    Arguing with a fool is like wrestling with a pig.
