Palin has weighed in on the Jesus Chicken controversy, affixing the
official Teabagger "crazy" seal on the feeding frenzy that has
captivated the corporate media and kept us safely distracted from other,
more important news, like Mitten's failure to pay taxes for a decade.
Or a couple of bloody, foreign wars against another hated group -- the Muslims. But I digress.
"... boycotting Chick-fil-A has a chilling effect on our First Amendment rights" Sarah screeched to Greta Von Sustrun
on (what else) Fox "News" Tuesday night, adding that the fast food
chain is "being harmed by those who are intolerant and are bigoted and
Caribou Barbie brands those who favor tolerance (isn't that a TRUE
Christian value?) and civil liberties as hypocritical violators of our
Constitutional freedoms. Yeah, that's about right. Fits in perfectly
with the Ubur-right's Orwellian doublethink tenants: Freedom is
Slavery, Ignorance is Strength, and War is Peace.
Sarah and "First Dude" Todd (soon to be a reality TV star in a show
that turns warfare into entertainment -- with REAL bullets!) partook of
the breaded nugget communion in solidarity with the other
right-wing-nuts who lined up in record numbers to stuff their gizzards
with artery-clogging hydrogenated battered bits of hormone-laden
corporate poultry in a demonstration of their holy union with CFA
founder Dan Cathy's recent statements in a radio interview
opposing gay marriage:
"I think we are inviting God's judgment
on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better
than you as to what constitutes a marriage.' I pray God's mercy on our
generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we
have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
The Supreme Deity, it seems, is preoccupied with the naughty bits
of us lowly mortals, and how some of us choose to employ them. Given
this, you would think He would do something about the culture of
pedophilic Catholic Priests who continue to molest young children in the
protected guise of trusted community spiritual leaders?
Why in all that's deep-fried does a fast-food chain even have an
opinion on socio-political issues like gay marriage is a question worth
asking. What's next? Will Wendy get her perky red braids in a twist
over birth control? Ronald McDonald flip his flaming wig over
legalizing medical marijuana?
One thing's for certain -- bigotry is good for Big Business, it
appears. The Rapture Right donned their stretch pants and flooded their
favorite flying-monkey fried fast fooderies to loft their nuggets
heaven'ward in solidarity with homophobes and haters across the fruited
plane and gobbled greasy globs of processed factory farmed
psuedo-poultry in pious protest of civil rights.
Greg Palast was right, we're living in an armed madhouse.
