As you may or may not know, yesterday was something called “Chick-fil-a Appreciation Day.” The purpose was to rally folks to defend Chick-fil-a’s President Dan Cathy and his decision to contribute $2 million to pro-traditional marriage organizations and efforts in 2010. Many in the LGBT community had called on a boycott of Chick-fil-a and as a result of the “Appreciation Day” Chick-fil-a had it’s largest day ever. That’s not a surprise, given where most Chick-fil-a’s are located (the South).
This is America. People have the right to work hard, build something, be successful and donate money to causes that they believe in. George Soros does it. Peter Lewis does it.
But you don’t see people on the right calling for a boycott of Progressive Insurance.
(Apparently some on the right have called for boycotting Progressive insurance, which is stupid. If they have a good product and it’s less expensive and meets your needs, buy it. True free-enterprise is value neutral.)
Anyway, the point of this post was not to get into a discussion about boycotts, it was to highlight the video below.
This video was shot by someone calling himself Adam Smith (I don’t know whether that’s really his name or not), but it demonstrates an incredible lack of tolerance by someone claiming to be fighting for tolerance. The woman at the drive through window demonstrated incredible class and tolerance in the face of a guy that was just plain being a jerk.
See for yourself.
