From Pete LaBarbera at Americans For Truth:
Hey folks, check out this video by my friend (and “AFTAH Hour” co-host) John Kirkwood, shot at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Schaumburg, Illinois outside Chicago. [Watch it on YouTube HERE.]
This accurately conveys the spirit of this amazing grassroots, nationwide event in support of Chick-fil-A and its COO, Dan Cathy [click HERE for contact info]. As I wrote on my Facebook page, I was not prepared for what I experienced last evening at a Chick-fil-A last night in Aurora, Illinos. The lines were so long it took me and my son almost four hours to get our food!
The people were boisterous, joyful and patient — you couldn’t find a crowd more polar opposite than the leftist “Occupy Wall Street.” It was spectacular. (Chick-fil-A set a record in one-day sales.) I came away with renewed hope for America, and feeling that perhaps the Silent Majority of decent, churchgoing Americans is finally rising up. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others on the Intolerant, ‘Homo-Fanatical’ Left may have helped wake up a sleeping giant. As one fellow (“PolarCoug”) tweeted, “The line at my local Chick-fil-A goes out the door and all the way to November 6th.” More coming on this amazing event launched by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; [follow me on Twitter].
