Bigot of the Week Award: July 27, Mike Huckabee and His Fellow Diners…

27 Jul

Bigot of the Week. (Hiiyaa!)

As the Bigoted Ship of Fools sets sail to Chick-Fil-A, we see Mike Huckabee as the captain and Rick Santorum as Cruise Director.  The gaggle of chicken-peckin’ bigots form the ghastly crew eagerly swallowing hate.  Ms. Piggy is NOT PLEASED!

As though it were not bad enough that the bigot Huckabee decided to whore himself out to Chick-Fil-A after he learned that decent people were boycotting the tainted poultry, Rick Santorum felt there was not enough crazy in the seasoning and had to add his voice of hate. Ever since Dan Cathy, the king of the rancid rooster, made his recent remarks regarding the LGBTQ community, the full scope of his company’s toxic toil has come to light. Chick-Fil-A and the Cathy family have donated millions of dollars to companies that are not just anti-equality, but that are registered hate groups. Let them put their money where they will; millions of potential customers will gladly do the same!

Huckabee has called for “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” on August 1; Santorum got all man-on-sandwich excited and engaged in premature mastication, tweeting from one of the restaurants earlier this week. It seems likely that the appearance of this putrid poultry pair will put diners off their feed.

Three cheers to the Jim Henson Co. for ending all relations with Chick-Fil-A. Three jeers to the chain for telling staff to pretend that Muppet toys were pulled for “safety concerns.” Cheers also to Boston Mayor Tom Menino, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno, and Philadelphia Councilman James Kenney for questioning how Bigot-Fil-A “values” fit with their cities’ non-discrimination policies. Let’s chop this bigoted chain back down to its original size, the Dwarf House.

    “Santorum got all man-on-sandwich excited and engaged in premature mastication…”

    Now that’s why I love reading your Bigot of the Week pieces…it’s not just the great writing, but the sarcastic invective that goes straight for the money shot.

    There was a piece making the rounds on Facebook about how Chick-Fil-A had posted signs in its windows about how it had removed the Jim Hensen Puppet kid’s meal because of some “danger” to children. Imagine that! Chick-Fil-A feeling the need to remove a Hensen-related item from its stores! What a coincidence!

    Thanks, Michael, for yet another great piece.

      You are too kind! Thank you. I have to admit, I really enjoyed writing this particular BWA. So many lies, so much hypocrisy just waiting to be exposed. Thank you for also calling attention to the lies Chick-Fil-A is presenting about the Muppet toys!

      Your fan,

    As I told one friend who thought we were paying too much attention to this: when someone donates to people who have shamelessly called for my execution based simply on who and what I am, that tends to get my attention.

    i can’t wait till chik-fil-a introduces their new “santorum sauce” and “huckaberry smoothie” — (did that make you spit up a little?)

    How dare they! August.1st is the celebration of my province New Brunswick. A day for fun and fireworks! Not hate! New Brunswick has full protections for LGBT citizens, I would rather celebrate that, not Chick-Full-Of-Hate!

    I had a couple coworkers ask me if I wanted anything from Chick-Fil-A when they went there for lunch. When I told them why I could never give such an awful company a dime of my money, they just looked at me like I had a third arm growing out of my forehead and said “yeah, but their chicken is good.”

    To which I felt compelled to respond,

    “I don’t care if their chicken is the bloody secret to eternal youth, they’re not getting a cent from me.”

      I so wish we had more people with the integrity you consistently demonstrate! Thank you. You are a great ally and great human being.

      • Will S. August 1, 2012 at 8:33 am #

        I appreciate the compliment. Though I wouldn’t call it integrity so much as just intellectual and ideological consistency. You either believe in freedom and equality, or you don’t. Ya know?

      • Michael Hulshof-Schmidt August 1, 2012 at 8:40 am #

        Very true, Will. However, it is nice to see that you have the courage of your convictions and you understand what freedom and equality mean. We need more allies like you.
