Can't Chicken Just Be Good Chicken Because It's Good?
Can we just stop? I know it's the fault of people on the left AND the right, but could we just stop politicizing EVERY issue and every item? We're politicizing food; most recently with Blue Bell ice cream, and over the past few years, chicken. Chick-fil-A chicken, to be exact.
Most recently, the company has been ranked number one in fast food for customer satisfaction. Kind of goes with the corporate purpose that Truett Cathy came up with many years ago which is,"To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive impact on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A." Pretty cool, huh? Here's a link to the article written by The Daily Caller about our recent accolades.
Thing is, people are STILL politicizing the business. I'm not even talking about the leftists, and trust me, there are some out there still doing that. I'm talking about Chicks On The Right. I follow them on Twitter (rethinking that decision now) and they re-posted the Daily Caller's article with the title, "Sorry, Libs, Chick-fil-A is Officially America's Favorite Fast Food Restaurant." I mean, really?
Hey, it is totally cool that Chick-fil-A was voted number one, no doubt about it, but I'm starting to wonder if we have to take every chance we get to thumb our noses at liberals? Then I start to ask myself the following questions: Does this comment or activity win us elections? Does this convince people to want to vote Republican? Does this advance our ball down the court any further than it was before we made the comment?
Do the memes of 'snowflakes' and 'safe spaces' help our cause? Do the words, 'libtard' and 'Demonrats' do any good? Just because the left does it to us, doesn't mean we have to respond in like kind. It's all a distraction from the issues. Wag the dog, people.
I have decided that I'm laying down my pitchfork and my torch. I'm still in this fight for liberty and freedom for the long haul, though. I just wish that more of my friends and colleagues would lay their torches down, too and pick up a walk list and do some promoting instead of demeaning. As a good friend of mine eight years ago once said, "What 'FOR'"?
