Nothing like a nice pointless kerfuffle to divide and distract the populace. The favorite is the issue of homosexuality, which among the list of important issues should be way down the list. But it keeps coming back I believe because it is a useful tool to keep the populace distracted from the real issue of corruption and abuse of power going on about us. George Bush during his reign was a master at using gay marriage to distract conservatives away from his rampant corruption and towards obsessing about gays. Millions of people were kept up at night worrying about whether the fags would be able to marry. Meanwhile the country and the economy were going to the dogs. Who cares?, as long as GW was cynically and half heatedly championing the doomed to fail Defense of Marriage Act. Abortion is another issue which manages to keep the country whipped up in a frenzy and divided.
The latest Chick-fil-A dust up is pure stupid made in America. Both sides have shown themselves to be distasteful on the issue. On one hand we have Chicago leaders who believe that they have the right to punish any business that expresses an opinion that they do not want to hear. What ever happened to the idea of free speech? Welcome to the new “tolerant” American left, where “tolerance” is expressed at the end of a big long stick. Political correctness is only “tolerant” towards that which they like. Who isn´t “tolerant” towards the things we favor? Anything that goes against the brittle and fundamentalist beliefs of PC types is treated with anything but tolerance. More like fascism…and unbearable hypocrisy.
The Christian right has also behaved stupidly in their protesting the boycott by eating at Chick-fil-A. Fried chicken fast good is just about the worst that people can eat on multiple levels. The chickens are abused and live in misery their whole lives (a cruelty full product). They are fed poor quality food, antibiotics (let´s create some antibiotic resistance, yeah!) and hormones. They never see the light of day and are stressed all the time. They grow too quickly and are surrounded by ammonia on the ground. They live in filthy conditions, and pollute the environment. Aside from the suffering, any animal products produced under such conditions are going to be nutritionally a very low quality product. Quality food comes from healthy happy animals, and modern poultry raising is the exact opposite to that. It is a nightmare.
Once the chickens are killed they are processed in a factory run by illegals because they will accept less pay and protections. The line is sped up too fast. Accidents happen. Hygienic conditions are not respected…and this from an animal which arrives in a filthy bacteria covered state.
Then it is off to Chick-fil-A where it is treated with numerous chemicals-including the excitotoxin MSG-and then deep fried in extremely unhealthy oil (a veritable factory of oxidation). And then the Christian right happily munches on it while thinking that they are so smart and noble for having supported Chick-fil-A. If you really want to support free speech then make a donation to a free speech organization, or get involved in the free speech struggle. But, please don´t eat the garbage that Chick-fil-A produces.
In sum, this whole Chick-fil-A is a wonderful example of how people get distracted by minor controversies while ignoring the real issues. How convenient!
I personally believe that we should just treat homosexuals like everyone else, neither discriminating against them, nor favoring them, and stop worrying about the issue so much. Traditionally homosexuality wanted simply nondiscrimination, but like all PC movements, it has moved into the area of demanding special treatment and the right to discriminate against those who disagree with them.
Here are some choice comments by NaturalNews:
To stage an anti-boycott in support of Chick-fil-A, defenders of traditional Christian values and straight marriage lined up all across America to eat — huh? — monosodium glutamate!
Yep, there’s nothing like a little MSG to kick those gay visions right out of your brain, it seems. But that’s not all: According to Chick-fil-A’s own menu posted on their website, their classic chicken sandwiches are made with all the following chemicals and ingredients: (http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Food/Menu-Detail/ChickfilA-Chicken-Sandwic…)
• monosodium glutamate (twice!)
• soybean oil
• sodium aluminum phosphate
• dimethylpolysiloxane (an anti-foaming chemical)
• high fructose corn syrup
• ammonium sulfate
• soy lecithin
• sodium benzoate
• polysorbate 80
• yellow 5
• blue 1
• potassium sorbate
Oh yes, and somewhere in all this, you’ll find some chicken, too. Given that MSG is a chemical which promotes neurological damage(source: Dr. Russell Blaylock), you seriously have to wonder if some people who eat at Chick-fil-A on a regular basis are, technically, suffering the brain-damaging effects of regular MSG consumption. For the record, by the way, KFC’s menu is absolutely loaded with MSG, too.
I may hate Chick-fil-A’s menu, but I respect their CEO exercising his free speech
When Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values” and threatened to block the restaurant’s expansion in Chicago, he probably had no idea his message of intolerance was about to royally backfire. The masses of people lining up in support of Chick-fil-A — and even willing to eat MSG! — clearly showed the attempted attack on the restaurant failed miserably.
In fomenting all this, Emanuel the lizard man actually handed Chick-Fil-A millions of dollars in priceless publicity, boosting its business and making its name a household word. Thanks a lot, Emanuel, for causing yet more Americans to eat fast food! Don’t we have enough diabetes already?
And for the record, just so that everybody who reads this article attacks me for the right reasons, I’m a heterosexual libertarian who believes in the Bill of Rights and individual liberty. As far as I’m concerned, you can eat what you want, sleep with who you want, say what you want, buy what you want, marry who you want, and basically do anything you want as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody else. While I personally follow a more Christian philosophy in my own life, I don’t belligerently demand everybody else live the same way I do (or, heck, we’d run out of cacao and avocados in no time!).
As I’ve written before, a philosophy of freedom demands tolerance (http://www.naturalnews.com/035478_freedom_tyranny_philosophy.html). In that article, I wrote:
The thing about freedom is that if you demand freedom for yourself, you must also tolerate it for others. Freedom means freedom for all, including those with which you disagree, as long as they aren’t harming others in the process. Freedom can’t be selective.
But there’s a bigger issue in all this. To explain, allow me to paint a vivid scene for you:
Just to confuse the crap out of everybody, I’m going to carry my Bible into Starbucks and order a rainbow latte. Then I’m going over to Chick-fil-A wearing a pair of tight sparkly spandex pants but also a concealed weapon in order to exercise my Second Amendment rights. Then I’m gonna pick up a bullhorn and publicly declare, “It’s not about GAY versus STRAIGHT; it’s about the global corporate controllers versus us all!” and see if there’s a single intelligent person in the crowd who is actually awake enough to grasp that.
The Chick-fil-A distraction
The entire Chick-fil-A fiasco, you see, is a total distraction to keep your hearts and minds occupied while the banksters steal your future. While you’re debating the merits of chicken sandwiches versus gay marriage, you are being depopulated with GMOs, chemtrails, vaccines and medications. Your money is being eroded by the Federal Reserve. Your rights are being stripped away by Bush, Obama and whichever globalist puppet occupies the White House next. And believe me, the global controllers don’t give a hoot whether you’re gay or straight. You’re all getting raped, Sandusky-style, regardless of your sexual orientation.
You are all being enslaved, day by day, hour by hour, into a system of total mind control through television programming, subliminal messaging, fabricated news broadcasts and chemical poisoning. You’re being inundated with fluoride, radiation, medical imaging scans and food additives. You’re being programmed to behave like a robot; to emotionally respond like a five-year-old; to react in a pre-planned manner engineered by the agenda-setters.
You are being lied to about the power of your vote in the upcoming election (all the important choices are already made for you). You are being taught to live INSIDE the box while thinking you’re so hip, trendy and cool that you must be outside the box. You’re told you can change the world but then you’re shoved into a system of runaway consumerism that traps you in a cycle of financial dependence from which you can never escape to accomplish much of anything that really matters.
You are being spoon fed this story on Chick-fil-A (and everything else) precisely because the newsmakers don’t want you to have a spare moment to think about the REAL stories that matter: Vaccines are laced with stealth cancer viruses. Statin drugs cause dementia. Virtually all foods are mineral deficient. Vitamin D halts cancer. Consciousness grants you free will. You are a conscious being with unfathomable power if you would only awaken from your slumber.
While you and your neighbor bicker about Chick-fil-A, you’re all being equally raked over the coals by the system, get it?
Wake up, people. Stop eating MSG and processed food chemicals. Snap out of your hypnosis and see the real world for a change. Get off those psych meds! You are a conscious, powerful being with the gift of free will. You have the power to change the world. And not by eating a stupid chicken sandwich, either. You’re far more valuable than that if you’d only stop allowing yourself to be a willing pawn of the global controllers.
Get the poison out of your body. Detox. Eat superfoods. Get your brain back. And then fight for liberty. Rage against the system. I don’t care if you’re straight, gay, bi, tri, trans, drag, sex change, tried-it-once, “experimented in college” or whatever. Clear your head and fight for liberty. Our collective future is being crushed by the corporate-government fascist system. Time is running out for food freedom, farm freedom, free speech, internet freedom, medical freedom our Bill of Rights and much more. We don’t have time to mess around with chicken sandwich distractions and moronic anti-boycotts that serve up food poisons like some sort of weird Jim Jones final chapter.
