war on chick-fil-a

Santorum Family Just Cannot Get Enough Of This Chick-Fil-A Special Sauce

Yummy brown sauceRick Santorum & fam marched straight to the front lines of the War on Chick-fil-A today, to stand arms-linked with the fast food chicken diabetes company that hates gay people. But Rick Santorum, you ask, Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day isn’t until August 1! You say so yourself! Well, that’s no matter. Everyday is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day in the Santorum household. Except Sundays! That’s Jesus Time.

Before spreading delicious, delicious Santorum sauce all over his chicken sandwich, Santorum posted this Facebook note endorsing Mike Huckabee’s Chick-fil-A appreciation day:

Help us fight to [sic] for traditional families and eat chicken at the same time.

Mmm mmm mmm, slacktivism has never been so tasty. He continues:

It is sad that liberal groups call for tolerance yet they are vicious in their intolerance when someone disagrees with them.

I think Governor Mike Huckabee said it best when he wrote, “Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.”

And that’s why I am joining Mike in his effort to fight for traditional values. Please join me and Governor Huckabee on August 1 by eating at Chick-fil-A. No signs and no protests are needed to make your voice heard. Just simply have a meal at Chick-fil-A on August 1 for “Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day” and our support for traditional values will be heard loud and clear.

See you all at the insulin ward.

  1. Come here a minute

    You don't really support traditional marriage unless you have breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Chick-fil-A every single day (Sundays in a doggie bag).

    1. OneYieldRegular

      Go back for thirds. Fourths, even. Heck, just let yourself go and see if you can eat Chick-Fil-A non-stop for the entire 24 hours of Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. Do it. Do it because you know it's the right thing to do.

        1. GhostBuggy

          Well, they do, they just like to keep it in Chik-fil-A's men's room stalls, as Gawd intended.

    Is it just because I watch Dexter, or does that sound serial-killy to anyone else?

  3. Tequila Mockingbird

    I pray to Irony Jebus that one or all of his sons, 15 years from now, end up wearing assless chaps on a penis float in the Gay Pride Parade.

    1. timbo71351

      I hope all of his children end up starring in S&M themed same-sex porn. I'm talking stuff with fisting and peeing.

    2. Rotundo_

      Up the ante: Wearing assless chaps on a penis float supporting Gay Pride in the Tournament of Roses Parade. "The Shaft is covered in American Beauty petals each lovingly glued to the base by volunteers and the Corona and Head are done with more than a dozen varieties of violets, the corporate sponsors are Astroglide and the American Beef Council."

    3. Callyson

      I vote for his crying daughter to lead the Dykes on Bikes in San Francisco's Gay Pride.

    4. MittBorg

      Aren't they kinda old for that? We'll have to hope for the grandsprogs.

      Although it is rumoured that one or more of his sons, despite having apparently nubile healthy young breeder wives, had to resort to artificial assistance to produce the required grandsproggen.

    1. Typodong3

      Maybe he ate TOO much Chik-Fil-A, thats why his hair turned orange. Or, that wasnt the same person in the courtroom as we saw in the original pic (try it yourself and see!).

      1. actor212

        Soft bigotry of low expectations.

        Come on, Ricky! Only two more big boy bites and you'll have finished your sandwich! Go! Go! Go!

          1. KeepFnThatOwl

            Swear to Jesus, I saw a photo of a kid last week, sitting in front of his breakfast. He already looks swole up and diabetic, and yet his prepared meal is thick pancakes wrapped in syrup… and the pancakes spell his name.

        1. glasspusher

          “Why Ricky can't lead”A rising tide destroys all sandcastles…lead, follow or get the hell out of the way…if 80% of success is showing up, why do so many people lack the other 20…I'm out…

      1. MittBorg

        I can just see them in their little denim vests, giving the farmer a quizzical eyeball and saying, "You want eggs, get a *breeder.*"

  4. Come here a minute

    The floor of the Santorum family truckster is covered in a frothy mix of chicken fat and peach shake.

  5. elviouslyqueer

    Funny, I would've thought that deep-fried rat dicks were much more to Creamcup's liking.

  6. LetUsBray

    Santorum? Special Sauce? Obvious tasteless jokes are obvous.

    Not that I'm not looking forward to reading them, mind you.

        1. glasspusher

          It's my understanding that Santorum doesn't understand (or care to understand) a lot of things.

          1. redarmyzombie

            I can understand closet queers. It took me a while to get out myself. It's the ones in denial I have utter contempt for.

    1. AbandonHope

      Actually, an Anti-Support-Chick-Fil-A counter-rally on August 1st — where everybody pointedly eats beef everywhere — would be pretty cool.

      Wait, no, this is even better… bring a bunch of beef sandwiches and eat them in Chick-Fil-A joints across the nation.

      1. sullivanst

        Or, less criminal-trespassily, just outside, taunting anyone that goes in, forced-birther-style.

        1. MittBorg

          Thumbs up for *this* idea. All these fat schlubs will be dragging their children to this thing. A few strategically placed, fashionably turned out fags, dykes, and trannies should result in a WHOLE LOTTA hushing and embarrassed attempts at explanation. Not to mention the fact that it will give the young'uns, um, food for thought.

    2. randcoolcatdaddy

      Here I go and make a crude sex joke and no one runs with it. Disappointed in you, Wonketteers…

    "Call the asphalt folks, J.J.; we're gonna need more Hoveround parking spaces!"

  8. AncienReggie

    Hugely satisfying that all these chicken-wing-tards are eating shitty chicken just to make a point about the freedom to hate.

    Tough for their kids, sure, but you can't butcher a bird without plucking a few feathers.

    1. Boojum

      And they are some pleasant mother pheasant pluckers, who pluck pleasant mother pheasants.

  9. Boojum

    Rick, you are "considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant" because we live in a fact based world. And because of Jesus.

  10. ph7

    Nice to see the Christians circling the wagons. Around deep fried fast food. The Body and Blood of Crisco Christ.

    1. KeepFnThatOwl

      That's going to originate another satanic urban legend on Procter & Gamble…. I can feel it.

  11. deanbooth

    we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.

    Huh? Calling someone a fundamentalist is now a slur? They're finally catching on.

    1. Rotundo_

      The mark of a social media pro-not! Probably some shitwit fresh out of Liberty U. without the slightest whiff of intelligence on this. They're probably thinking they shoulda used one of their kids pics or dragged someone off the street and offered them a grand to shut up about it and took their pic for propoganda purposes. They would of course fuck this up too, and have the same result. Thanks for a good chuckle…

  13. Biel_ze_Bubba

    If you're a true believer, you should be willing to sacrifice your arteries for Jeebus.

    "liberal groups call for tolerance"

    Hold on there Ricky. Neither I or my friends have never or will ever call for tolerance.

    1. CommieLibunatic

      Word. It's not like you get a rebate or even an Xbox Achievement for trying to be fair with militant assholes like Santorum.

  15. Baconzgood

    Aug 1st doesn't work for me because I'll be fucking some dude in the poop chute. How's Friday?

  16. elviouslyqueer

    Oh Rick, STFU and crawl back to the primordial ooze from whence you came, you homophobic dickbag.

  17. SorosBot

    "It is sad that liberal groups call for tolerance yet they are vicious in their intolerance when someone disagrees with them. "

    Sigh. You hear this all the time from bigoted assholes who don't know what tolerance means. It's intolerant to judge someone for who they are, for inherent characteristics like their skin color or what gender they are attracted to. It's not intolerant to judge someone for what they actually do or say, like say if they hate others just because of their skin color or what gender they are attracted to and want to deny them full rights; it's perfectly tolerant in fact for being vile evil bigoted douchefucks.

    1. sullivanst

      Of course, Ricky forgets the part about "the only thing we cannot tolerate, is intolerance", which means everything he's ever done. The Huckster too.

    2. CommieLibunatic

      Word. Last I checked, I don't march around threatening fiery damnation to anyone who doesn't think and act exactly like me.

      Unless the conversation turns towards Homeworld, of course. If I hear you gush about how good the Cataclysm expansion was, Kharak help you.

    3. Callyson

      This. What's really sad is when the intolerant call those who are calling for tolerance of those whom the intolerant refuse to tolerate a bunch of intolerant liberals.

      Christ, I can't even keep up with wingnut logic anymore…

    4. miss_grundy

      People mistake the right of free speech with intolerance. If you want to be a recalcitrant poophead, you have a right to do so but I have the right to disagree with your viewpoint and let you know it.

    5. SayItWithWookies

      If I understand Huckabee and Santorum's argument correctly — and they're both proponents of free market solutions to everything — it's that this Chick-Fil-A guy can spend all the money he wants to take away people's rights, but should those people then refuse to pay him money for the very products that will further that bigotry, that itself is intolerant? Yeah, that doesn't make a lick of fuckin' sense.

      I remember hearing stories about when the first mixed-race jazz bands would tour through the south, the proprietors of gas stations and restaurants wouldn't let the black people use their facilities — except when the white and black potential customers would say they were all leaving unless he served everyone.

      The idea that we owe someone our business, even if we disagree with him, means that society should hold its morals in check to further the making of money, which we owe to those poor rich people who just wanna create jobs. What the fuck. And Mike's allegedly a minister.

        1. horsedreamer_1

          Magic Mike did take place in Tampa. So, I think, come convention time, Rick will end up lost in Ybor City.

          1. miss_grundy

            That means he'll be eating arroz con pollo, smoking cigars and drinking cuban coffee. That should be interesting.

    1. Beowoof

      Chopped and formed, beaks, feet and necks, then breaded and deep fried to a golden goodness.

  18. HobbesEvilTwin

    Glad to see the important political figures of our time tackling the important issues.

  19. Biel_ze_Bubba

    It is sad that liberals who preach tolerance are intolerant of intolerance?
    No, Ricky, what's sad is your intolerance, which we refuse to tolerate.

    Logic ain't Ricky's strong suit.

    1. Rotundo_

      Cloaca patties, mascerated, masticated,minced poultry pucker musculature, you know, the same thing everyone puts in chicken patties. The stuff with tumors goes into cat food and dog food, unless the boys in the plant want to bump the yields up a percent or two so we give them a dime an hour bonus for the shift…

    Please join me and Governor Huckabee on August 1 by eating at Chick-fil-A

    This won't really happen. The Conservitards will simply send their man-servants to fetch a modest amount of Chick-Fil-A's menu items, which will then be served by obsequious but well dressed butlers. Afterwards, everyone who dined will chuckle "this is how the poors eat!"

  21. Mittens Howell, III

    Chick-fil-A sauce–a frothy mixture of homophobia, fundamentalist hate, and intolerance.

  22. Jus_Wonderin

    "And that’s why I am joining Mike in his effort to fight for traditional values. Please join me and Governor Huckabee on August 1 by eating at Chick-fil-A."

    Seems they are just asking for trouble by giving the Aug 1 date. Am I the only one that sees this?

    1. pdiddycornchips

      I plan on spending that day eating devil dogs and sodomizing anything that moves.

  23. chicken_thief

    Him and the kids at Chick-fil-A? Wifey must have been off fucking that dentist or doctor or whatever he was again.

  24. An_Outhouse

    I don't know what chick-in-strip is but it sounds dirty and not at all like something Santorum would be encouraging.

  25. i_AM_ready

    So he dragged 5 of his kids with him to go eat greasy chicken. I bet they love that. Daddy's such a fun guy.
    Hey wait, aren't his kids in their 20s or something now? Don't any of them have jobs?

  26. KeepFnThatOwl

    Today, Doctor Buster Wilson (not kidding) was on his AFR program (I torture myself at lunch), seriously huckin' that chicken (to borrow a phrase).

  27. BoatOfVelociraptors

    Santorum went on the internet to talk about spreading his sauce. This is a facepalm that can be heard from orbit, and yes, I realize sound can't travel through a vacuum.

  28. CrunchyKnee

    These fucking clowns are always rattling on and on about the "invisible hand of the free market." So, let Chic-fil-a sink or swim on their own actions. Fucking asswipes.

    1. ph7

      If cows could spell, it would suggest evolution. But cows can't spell, therefore proving Creationism.

    2. Jus_Wonderin

      Oh, cows can spell. The just don't want you knowing they can spell. In fact, cows can do advanced math, are versed in Ergonomic Psychology and many can sing (rather well). Now, knitting is difficult and handling scissors, but, hear me now, don't sell cows short.

      Well, unless the price of beef is falling then, sell, sell, sell.

  29. bureaucrap

    Perhaps Rick should try organizing "Let's eat at chick fil a" days from his Grindr ™ account, which helps him find horny guys in coffee houses.

  30. coolhandnuke

    The wingtards are just getting all proactive now considering they failed to rally and unite over Sambo's closing.

      1. coolhandnuke

        The Oregon coastal town Lincoln City had a restaurant called Lil' Black Sambos for many decades. I believe it closed around 1998.
        I used their bathroom in 1996.

  31. Sassomatic

    "It is sad that liberal groups call for tolerance yet they are vicious in their intolerance when someone disagrees with them."

    Yeah, why can't you libs just tolerate hateful attacks on an entire demographic?

  32. SayItWithWookies

    A typical Chick-Fil-A outing takes longer for the Santorums than for the average customer, as Rick's family likes to swaddle their chicken dinner, give it a name, and cuddle it before saying goodbye.

  33. owhatever

    Somewhere in the Chick-fil-A empire is a gay kitchen worker mixing his own very special batch of special sauce.

    Why does the name "Rick Santorum" remind me to flush a toilet?

  34. anniegetyerfun

    Yes, boycotts are so vicious. Or does he mean "viscous"? I ask because of all the sauce-related tweets.

  35. LetUsBray

    Normally I might advise a business that someone as creepy, weird, and just plain nasty as the Frothmeister isn't the best celebrity spokesperson.

    But for Chick-Fil-Anus, he's perfect. Carry on!

  36. anniegetyerfun

    What I find riveting about all this conservative whining and moaning is that they act as though anyone's rights have been trampled on. They haven't. Businesses and cities are choosing to shun Chick-Fil-A because Chick-Fil-A has taken a stand against something that most Americans now support. Chick-Fil-A has the absolute right to take that stand, and their supporters can come forth to their cause if they want. The rest of us can happily boycott them. Why are Rick "Hate the Blahs" Santorum and Mike "Going on 300 Pounds" Huckabee crying like little bitches? "Oh, the vicious ATTACKS from the LEFT! Oh, pearl clutching and hand-wringing! My smelling salts!!"

    THAT IS HOW FREE SPEECH WORKS, MOTHERFUCKERS.

    1. tessiee

      People like that go on and on about how they like to stand up for their beliefs, but they don't understand what that means, because they're…
      how shall I say this?…
      weapon quality stupid.
      They *think* that standing up for their beliefs means parroting them to an echo chamber full of people who agree with them, and whose only question will be, "Why are you so awesome?"
      It's not that they don't think anyone else is entitled to beliefs that differ from theirs (although of course they don't), it's that they so seldom venture outside the bubble that they're actually honestly *surprised* when they're met with something other than fawning approval, as you can tell that Rickles is.
      The rest of us, who have to deal with the real world every day, may not LIKE to encounter opposition to our viewpoint — but we're not shocked, terribly terribly shocked, and hurt when we do, either.

  37. Fraudulently_Joe

    You know what?

    I'm totally willing to help support Chick-Fill-A support Traditional, Biblical Marriage, and this is why, on behalf of Chick-Fill-A, which has clearly stated that it shares my views, I DEMAND that the Federal Government pass a law prohibiting interfaith and interracial marriages, which are unambiguously condemned in Exodus 34, Deuteronomy 7, Ezra 10, Nehemiah 13, Malachi 2, 1 Corinthians 7, and 2 Corinthians 6.

    Or, we could possibly just acknowledge that the United States is not a theocracy governed by the Conservative reading of the bibble, and that while religious individuals are free to live in accordance with their own views, this has absolutely no bearing on what what is or should be legal.

    But, in the meantime, we should all interpret Chick-Fill-A's statement as meaning that they are opposed to state recognition of interfaith and interracial marriages. Which is totally what it would have meant, 40 years ago.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      I recently had to look up the "one man one woman" bullshit in the Bible, because seriously, I wanted to see if maybe Jesus said something about it? Because goodness knows that it isn't covered in the Old Testament.

      Or the New, it turns out! I mean, there's stuff about marriage and divorce and adultery, but nothing that says "one man one woman" like the wingtards are always going on about. So, that was a fun exercise.

      1. Fraudulently_Joe

        It doesn't, but Jesus says, in the Gospels, that men and women leave their parents homes to get married. Which, could either be interpreted as a purely descriptive, "this is how the average Judean Roman subject used to live" terms, or alternatively (and let's be honest, this is obviously the clearest interpretation) it means that EVERYONE should live with their parents until they get married, and if you move out of your parents' home without getting married first, that is SIN.

  38. arduinohacker

    Been only once to a Chik-fil-A. It was at this large but mostly boarded-up mall in Dayton Ohio. The mall had broken skylights and pigeons flying around inside. The whole mall smelled like old grease and the smell was strongest in the Chilk-Fil-A. Son and I were very hungry and could not avoid eating there, in spite of all the counteracting signs. Never again. Think were were served month-old pigeon, fried in old grease. Never again.

    1. Franknflower

      I ate in a Chick Fil A once and was followed around by the obsequios employee. I didn't know at the time it was a Christian front organization. The chicken's creepy behavior makes total sense now. I thought he just wanted to blow me in the bathroom.

    Chick-fil-A has sauce? I thought it was just a fried chikkie breast on a bun with a couple pickles. There's sauce now?

    1. Guppy

      Get the deluxe club (the chicken is grilled and vegetables and optional cheese are added) and they give you a separate packet of sauce you can apply yourself.

      Or so I've been told.

    2. ATLbandita

      Yeah – see, I was wondering the same thing. I think the kids meal may come with some mustard sauce or something, but I've never seen "Chick Fil A sauce" ….less'n you count a packet of mayonnaise. Oh, wait…

  51. Typodong3

    You gotta love the convolutions in this statement: "It is sad that liberal groups call for tolerance yet they are vicious in their intolerance when someone disagrees with them."

    So we are intolerant because we are intolerant of intolerance? The mind boggles…

  52. sullivanst

    Hell, even if he lives, it's still a win, because he'll be safely secluded in Chick-Fil-A the whole time, where we'll never be exposed to him.

    No offense, but I almost wish some Christer buttmunch would come right out and say they just plain don't like black people, never have, never will (with or without the bullshit justification that it's in the bibble somewhre) — for no other reason than to watch the repiglican dimwits tie themselves into knots trying to explain how that's not, really not, no really swear to god we mean it really, NOT racist.

    Sealy Posturpedic supports Traditional Marriage, and invites all one-man-one-woman couples with wedding rings to an evening of missionary relations at participating Bedding Experts stores on Saturday from 7 to 7:05 pm.

  55. IonaTrailer

    Off-topic, but relating to the 'Anglo-Saxon" values comment I offer these family values:
    From Fox News:

    the Republican presidential candidate's great-grandfather had five wives and at least one of his great-great grandfathers had 12.

    Polygamy was not just a historical footnote, but a prominent element in the family tree of the former Massachusetts governor now seeking to become the first Mormon president.

    Romney's great-grandfather, Miles Park Romney, married his fifth wife in 1897. That was more than six years after Mormon leaders banned polygamy and more than three decades after a federal law barred the practice.

    Romney's great-grandmother, Hannah Hood Hill, was the daughter of polygamists. She wrote vividly in her autobiography about how she "used to walk the floor and shed tears of sorrow" over her own husband's multiple marriages.

    Romney's great-great grandfather, Parley Pratt, an apostle in the church, had 12 wives. In an 1852 sermon, Parley Pratt's brother and fellow apostle, Orson Pratt, became the first church official to publicly proclaim and defend polygamy as a direct revelation from God.

    1. Guppy

      The only part of his family history I give a damn about is the fact he was born on third and thinks he hit a triple.

      Besides, ad hominem attacks that revolve around historical religious/cultural practices that are no longer relevant is a road nobody should go down, ever.

  56. CommieLibunatic

    Aah, the old "libtards are intolerant" meme. An in-law just recently crapped out some Facebook… what do you call those dumb pictures/comics on Facebook that are overly sentimental/inflammatory?

    Whatever. Anyway, he posts a thing, upsets my wife over him calling her an intolerant libtard, declares how he actually loves her like a daughter, then turns back around in the same breath to snarl at the aforementioned libtards.

    How the hell does that meme even work, anyway? I don't run around cursing Muslims, Taoists, Jews, and all the other thousands of religions of Earth, at least not until they start harshin' our human rights. Y'know, like Santorum and his would do given the chance.

  57. el_chupacabra

    The supposedly tolerant are far too often intolerant of the intolerant. This lack of tolerance for the intolerable intolerant is intolerance at its worst. It's like the whole world is made of lactose and I just hate stinky poos.

    FWIW, to turn of my snark for a second, my interpretation has always been the former, but with the corrolary that this insight into courtship in Roman Judea also reveals that any "Biblically-derived" thoughts on courtship are going to be necessarily be coming from a perspective that's fundamentally meaningless to adults living in the modern world, where we live as independent adults for a decade or so, between leaving our parental home and forming families of our own.

    Back when I dated an evangelical girl, I tried to explain this to her, but she didn't really buy it at the time. But then we broke up and she started scissoring other ladies, so I suppose she eventually got past that issue in her own way.

      Oh, sorry about the scissoring! I mean, I'm not, because it's a totally great way to spend an afternoon, but it seems like you went to a lot of work for nothing!

      1. Fraudulently_Joe

        Meh, I'm happy enough for her, and it's especially okay that she's heaping her crazy and fear of commitment on someone else for a change. We were on-and-off for a super-rocky FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALANANNIE.

        Plus, there were plenty of signs that I was too dense to pick up on at the time. I mean, she was really into villanelles, for one.

    You know, if they were really serious, they'd do this on Sunday. Every Sunday.

    What? They aren't open on Sunday? Well. That's different, then.

    Never mind…

    Santorum is all about the sauce.

    I attended a workshop with the Chick-a-Fil guy a year or two ago. He is just as annoying in person as you might expect. Screw him, Santorum, and their dancing horse.

    Mandate to buy health insurance = bad
    Mandate to buy Chick-Fil-A = good

    Does Santorum know that Cathy isn't Cafflick?

    This is making the rounds. This would be fun. Fuck, I would dress in drag for it. At first I thought there were no CFAs above the Manson-Nixon line, but there are some in NH and MA, and they may be moving northward…Sort of like creeping sharia, except with Christians, HFCS, fat, salt, and dough.

    My only hope in this imbroglio is that the In-N-Out folks are not reached for comment.

    The owner of Chick-fil-a must want to kill Huckabee by now. The guy told a reporters that basically "yeah, I'm a Jesus freak, but back to chicken." It would have probably died except for Huck trying to ignite a culture war out it. Mother fucker has basically made it impossible for me to go there ever again.

    Can someone photoshop a pic of Frothy eating
    a chicken sandwich with the CFA logo, and the
    Headline "Chick-Fil-A with santorum" (and a link
    To the urban dic definition) and start distributing it
    On FB?

    I like they way they have no qualms about
    boycotting or speaking out against businesses like
    Disney that express their beliefs that The Gheys are ok
