Chick-Fil-A is the latest victim of the ever escalating culture war in the United States. If you are not familiar with the culture war, it is predominantly between radical left-wing Marxists who want to tear down all existing societal institutions versus regular people who are trying to live their lives. Chick-Fil-A recently announced they will stop supporting charities that are “anti-LGBTQ”, such as the Salvation Army, and The Fellowship Of Christian Athletes. While it completely within Chick-Fil-As right to do so, the problem is why they did it: to appease the left-wing outrage mob.
Over the last several years Chick-Fil-A has been hit with protests at new and existing locations for taking certain stances on gay marriage, and being affiliated with faith based organizations. However until yesterday, the famously delicious chicken sandwich shop had resisted left-wing attempts to force them to change. This latest casualty in the culture war demonstrates how powerful the left is. This also represents an inflection point in the culture war, as the radical left knows they can get what they want, even out of the most staunchly religious companies. From here I expect the left to become more emboldened and engage in more aggressive tactics, this will force non-leftist into unintentional confrontations with these rabid left-wing lunatics.
I will continue to show support for Chick-Fil-A, but it seems like the damage is done. This looks like a major victory for the Post-modern Marxists, and conservatives need to fight back. As non-leftists, we must be more vocal in proclaiming what we want, whether it be in the virtual world or physical, we cannot let these radical left-wing scum win.
