Rahm Emanuel 'bitch slapped' by Chick-fil-A supporters
Rahm Emanuel is certainly no light weight when it comes to politics. He was instrumental in recruiting 'Blue Dog Democrats' to run against RINO republicans in 2006, and was an 800 pound gorilla in helping the Democrats gain majorities in the Senate and the House in 2006 ('a thumpin', said Dubya at the time).
Yes, that was the Rahm Emanuel in 2006. The apex of his political career.
But fast forward to 2012. He wins (virtually uncontested) Bill Daley Jr's Chicago Mayor seat in 2011, and since that point he has started his descent into the standard Democrat abyss. Tax and spend, tax and spend, demagogue his enemies and keep the uninformed and clueless electorate bamboozled.
Sure, it works like a charm in every blue city and state, but at times there are limits as to how far a Marxist, Stalinist and totalitarian Democrat can lean before things come back to bite them in the butt.
Witness Mayor Emanuel's statement a few days ago that President and COO of the fast food franchise (and profound Christian) Dan Cathy's views 'are not those consistent with Chicago values,' and that he will oppose expansion by this franchise into his city.
I am guessing that he is referring to Al Capone values, to Thug Crip and Blood Gang values, to Dead People Voting values, to Two of the Last Three Governors in the Big House Currently Values, to General Corruption Values, and to Murder City USA Values. Yeah, those values. Heaven fordid we have any connection with Christian values (shudder...).
Man, oh man. How could this otherwise 800 pound gorilla in political circles step in it so badly? Simple. These guys are so convinced that their profoundly Marxist and atheistic views are held by the majority of people nationwide, that they forget that they simply represent a significant minority of liberal takers, atheists and slackers that vote them into office in their protected little confines, and are truly clueless (or as Rahm himself would say, 'effing retards') as to how America as a whole views the moral opinions of a witnessing Christian such as Dan Cathy as to the general unpopularity of gay marriage.
Gay marriage initiates have failed in every state where they have appeared on the ballot, most recently in North Carolina. But Rahm, tin ear and all, thinks that atheism and Marxism reign supreme in the US, when in fact they most demonstrably do not.
The 'Chick-fil-A' Revolution yesterday proved this point with a vengeance. Rahm and the boys have yet to utter a word after the nation saw mobs outside the doors of every single Chick-fil-A franchise across America showed their support of views completely opposite that of Rahm and his ilk.
It bodes ill for the Marxists, er, uh, I mean Democrats in November, 2012, take that to the bank.
