Sarah Palin visits Chick-fil-A, civility and new tone ensue on Twitter

Sarah Palin visits Chick-fil-A, civility and new tone ensue on Twitter

After Sarah and Todd Palin attended a rally for Ted Cruz in Texas yesterday, they stopped by a Chick-fil-A.

Palin posted photos on her Facebook page and also sent out tweets about the visit (h/t Charles).

Here are some of the lovely tweets sent in response to Palin’s visit:

There’s more civility on display if you search Palin’s Twitter username and also at Twitchy.

Update: More tweets here, Palin stops at Chick-fil-A, left responds with misogyny and sexism.

The only hate I see is from perverts. No one else has said a bad word about their choice of lifestyle. Phobia is a fear of something. No one is afraid of these people. They just wish they had it in them to make someone fear them. If they would just quit throwing perversions in normal peoples facees, no one would pay them any attentionn. But atttracting attention is the whole purpose of most of their “gayness”.

I have decided that Freud really was onto something about hysteria. I have been reading of this & this is my only explanation.

Other than that there is my perennial fallback -Zombie Attack.

Silly people. I don’t fear you. I pity you. There’s a world of difference.

    theduchessofkitty in reply to NC Mountain Girl. | July 28, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    I’m going to add my comment to yours. I do pity them, but they need a public spanking.

    “Civility”, my foot!

    As Antoine Dawson (of “Hide your kids, hide your wife”) fame stated this week, “If I want to eat at Chick-fil-A, I go eat at Chick-fil-A!” And that guy is as “flaming!” as it gets!

    This message is for all those who throw all that hate at Sarah Palin and Chick-fil-A: The People have spoken! The people have voted with their wallets and with their hunger pangs. If the people want to eat at Chick-fil-A, they will go to eat at Chick-fil-A!

    You don’t have to spend your hard-earned money there: it’s your choice, after all. But let me tell you that not a single Chick-fil-A franchise needs your money or your presence. Every single franchise I’ve been to is ALWAYS FULL, even with cars backing up into the next parking lot! They go there, they eat there, they LOVE what they eat, they keep coming back – and that’s it! No amount of hate from your part is going to make that change!

    The people don’t give a rat’s rear end about what you haters think! Every bite they take of chicken sandwich, strips, salad or wraps marks another well-deserved flip-of-the-bird they sent lovingly, right back at ya!

    Just as Sarah sent all her love, with every bite she took! (Good for ya, Sarah!)

    Of course, if you want a sandwich with no taste, or condiments and sauce with no zing, or a friendly family atmosphere with no cuss-a-minute music blaring in the background, or a place where people LIVE THEIR VALUES such as not stealing the complimentary newspapers…

    … you can always go to McDonald’s. 🙂

      I should have said if you don’t want any of those nice things!

      McD’s is so dry, it crumbles on contact. There’s no passion there at all! It’s all… plastic.

On a more serious note the language & hatred is also aimed at the kids in the photo. The happiness displayed by the kids has sent these weirdos into a spin. Even moreso black & Mixed & White peole happy together.

‘Happy together ” -time for some Small Faces !

It appears that the Progressive Left’s “Submit to Gay Marriage or Die” campaign is on the verge of cartoonish rioting.

Funny how some of those people seem to be spewing such vile filth under what appear to be their actual names. I post anonymously but would never make such vile posts even anonymously!

I guess it is okay for leftists to be openly, vile, intolerant bigots while they accuse far more polite conservatives of the same…

What happened to reason, logic and reality?

    nordic_prince in reply to WarEagle82. | July 28, 2012 at 10:43 am

    When you’re a loony lefty libtard, you don’t have to show any consistency between your words and your actions – you can demand “tolerance” and “acceptance” from everyone else, all the while you spew bile and hatred in an intolerant, close-minded bilious attack.

    theduchessofkitty in reply to WarEagle82. | July 28, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    “I post anonymously but would never make such vile posts even anonymously! ”

    That’s why I told my husband, “I wish I was their bosses. Easier for me to see what they will say behind my back… and fire them!”

ur azz is fat enough?
Good lawd, you see the totalitarianism that runs deep in the souls of the radical gay activists … if they gain control they’ll shut down chit they don’t like, mandate you eat rabbit food till you crap little pellets too and then they’ll want to regulate those.

ps -my guess is that you won’t see the Sassy Feet dance squad on the Ellen Degenerate show.

    Twitter is a good, real time communicator. But it’s also a live wire, a gun without a safety, for those who are overly impulsive or not very bright.

    I mean, shooting off your mouth, in print to the whole world, with a permanent archive, may not be the smartest thing. Let’s just play smart and keep our heads. In several years, I predict that any number of young, bright, up-and-commers on the Left will be hoisted upon their own petard by their past twitters.

They’ve gone from

“Make love, not war,”


“Make hate, not chicken.”

I just told my husband last night, I wanted to go to the Chic-fil-A, this weekend at the Burlington Mall food court.

How awesome to see Sarah and Todd Palin post that.

All you MA and RI residents, see you there.

‘The fish stinks from the head down”.
These little tweeters are just doing what they learned from the Commander in Chief.

LukeHandCool | July 28, 2012 at 10:41 am

All this hatred is making me hungry!

kbob_in_katy | July 28, 2012 at 10:41 am

I love the fact that those who hate Palin are the same ones who chant the mantra of tolerance and change. It is indeed unfortunate that their end of the gene pool did not get chlorinated.

Still curious what would happen if the Mayor of any city told a muslim owned Halal butchery they could not open in their town, or a madrassa was not allowed because they did not represent their communitys’ values. Who would be screaming then?

Even more curious is the support of the LGBT community for Islam. I guess they don’t realize that they are signing their own death warrants in the name of tolerance.

Like I’ve said before, repeal all laws banning dueling.

Any of you ever consider what weve been reduced to under Obama? It strikes me…seeing all the nasty tweets about Palin…that weve become a nation of Tribes.
When in our history did we have this politically driven business tribe? Its pretty recent and began I think when lefties started lining up to punish Rush.
Suddenly corporate blackmail became fashionable. And organized. Maybe it began really when that group spoke about reducing support for Planned Parenthood.
The left went wild and organized. How dare folks recuce spending with some “favored” group.
And now we see government officials taking illegal aim at new permits etc.
Community Organizing at its finast. Isolate and punish others to force them to bend in some direction.
So now we have this new anti some business tribe that sticks together to take down business that speak freely about social issues.
Its a twist on McCarthyism from years gone by.
We see all the ideologically driven subgroups that are no longer content with basic free expression…urged by an activest President they now must destroy others with differing opinions.
How open-minded.
Strange to imagine open minded liberals resorting to such militant methods.

    raven in reply to jimzinsocal. | July 28, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Agreed. The subtext to all this needs to be examined and confronted. But this is where most everybody on our side fails, certainly our “leaders” have failed. Bush? McCain? Romney? They haven’t even come close to addressing the frothing cultural clashes and hatred. But it’s not easy: how does one confront this kind of hate? With forbearance and outreach? Rhetorical confrontation? Ruthless political warfare? Lincoln had to face this kind of hate. He once said, “I will do the worst thing I can do to my enemy — I will make him my friend.” But that didn’t work out so well. In the final analysis, he just had to be ruthless. I thought for awhile that Palin might be a paradoxical healing leader. That is, there was so much irrational hate toward her, and it seemed to relate to the wider cultural war, that she might have been able to go into the fire at the center of it and come out the other side. What if she had held a kind of American summit and invited all the groups that hated her — but expressly excluded the media? Show Americans that we can rediscover true civility, that we do not need the media interlocuting our lives and defining the social tone and tempo? I was naive. But I still don’t know the answer. This hate has to have a reckoning, somehow, some way. We either figure it out, deal with it, or we fracture apart. It’s getting insane.

legacyrepublican | July 28, 2012 at 11:07 am

If someone sarcastically tweeted back … “Sarah Palin, the new gay! She is such a fa**ot!” … would they even get it?

With the gender-gap disappearing and Sarah Palin as inspiration (especially the combination of the Cruz-speech and Chick-Fil-A visit), I have this to say to my fellow women: We DON’T need to step on MEN to empower ourselves. We need only STEP on ONE MAN…. on Nov. 6th!

The hysterical left has done nothing more than introduce a whole new client base to Chick-Fil-A!

^^I forgot to add there. A crap economic situation magnifies everything I believe. Otherwise peaceful folks suddenly act strangely when jobs are scarce and you know? We Republicans are accused of hindering economic solutions from Democrats. To somehow stall any progress.
But consider. Who actually gains with a poor economy?
Who benefits most when economic realities make voters irrational and receptive to political nonsense like Obama spouts.
It aint Republicans.

I’m sure glad Cindy Tamez isn’t hateful. Cindy looks like she weighs in at well over 300 pounds and has one huge, hateful a$$.

Ha! The left is losing so badly that they have been reduced to calling Sarah Palin “fat”. I don’t think they realize that, like Rush Limbaugh, insults like this bounce right off her. She’s shown she can take pretty much everything tossed her way. And I’m sure it infuriates the left that they haven’t been able to destroy her, that she’s still going strong, that she still looks happy.

I’ve seen the Palin-hating in person, amongst the otherwise (seemingly) reasonable women I work with. It started on day one, the day McCain announced her as his running mate, and is still going strong. It’s quite scary to watch their faces twist into an ugly snarl as they spew hateful nonsense about her.

    LukeHandCool in reply to angela. | July 28, 2012 at 11:27 am

    They try to cast her as a sexy bimbo who shouldn’t be taken seriously … and turn around and call her fat.

    Make up your minds, lefties!

    These people are just a mess.

    raven in reply to angela. | July 28, 2012 at 11:35 am

    So have I, seen it person that is. My sister-in-law, a shrill emotional leftist (a teacher with an MA and Phd, no less), went after Palin within a day of McCain’s selection. She would send me long, hateful emails about how shallow, stupid, backward, bigoted Palin was. Even corrupt. I suspect she was drinking in and vomiting up the toxic sludge from leftist websites. I never engaged her in this debate, but it didn’t matter — the hatred was torrential and unending. Just amazing what drives these people. Scary.

      TrooperJohnSmith in reply to raven. | July 28, 2012 at 1:02 pm

      Wait… am I married to you? You just described my wife’s sister-in-law!! To a ‘tee’!


    NC Mountain Girl in reply to angela. | July 28, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    I bet it would be instructional for people like your co worker and raven’s sister in law if they had to see a video tape of themselves as they spewed their venom. Hate and anger literally makes people look ugly. That’s why you see so little pure hate and anger on TV as compared to biting sarcasm and irony.

I love Sarah..she just knows the exact right way to jab at the liberals in the most cheerful way possible. Oh and for any of those people that think she’s fat….ooohhh nooooo…not in the least.

Wait, doesn’t Ragspierre live in The Woodlands?

    theduchessofkitty in reply to PhillyGuy. | July 28, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    You know, I mean to ask him the same thing!

    Where are you, Raggie? I thought I was going to see you at the rally yesterday!

The hate directed at @SarahPalinUSA for her tweet-pic of Chick-Fil-a is an example pf the toxicity directed at the business for the personal beliefs of its owner. I hope the haters of the left are content — the official Chick-Fil-A spokesperson has died of a sudden heart-attack, after trying to deal with the ensuing stress.

stevewhitemd | July 28, 2012 at 11:43 am

Love the last photo: it’s more inclusive of minorities than —

— the anchors at MS-NBC

— the Elizabeth Warren campaign interns group photo

— the Obama Chicago office workers group photo

So much invective. These people are really sick. I have real concern for the safety of the Palin family.

    turfmann in reply to Towson Lawyer. | July 28, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    It would shock me to no end that the entire Palin family were not more than a couple of feet from Messrs Smith & Wesson at all times in public.

    And anyone wishing them harm knows it.

    “You see little sister don’t miss when she aims her gun…”

“Civility” is only important when you use it to beat a conservative. If you’re a Liberal, you can say any damn thing you want, no matter how abusive or insulting it is. Those are the rule, live with ’em.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Rich Vail. | July 28, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Again, the Great Universal Progressive Truth applies here.

    When the Left accuses the Right of anything, they are already guilty of the same. In this case, they accuse us of being haters and intolerant of homosexuals. But see how they react to someone with an honest disagreement or who does not agree with their lifestyle.

    They accuse Christians of intolerance, yet they are the epitome of intolerant. If they knew – or simply wanted to understand – they’d know that Christians understand that they can hate the sin, yet still love the sinner.

    There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know. John Heywood, 1546

TrooperJohnSmith | July 28, 2012 at 12:49 pm

“Homophobia” is such a stupid, non-word. As constructed, it literally means, Fear of the same; fear of self. In the end, it may actually describe how homosexuals feel about themselves and their own lifestyle.

Self-hatred is always manifested in self-destructive behavior and hostility towards others. (B.F. Skinner)

    TJS, I don’t think generalizations like this are helpful or accurate. My two gay sisters are far more self-confident than I will ever be. But I could run rings around them in the self-destructive department.

    Though I will admit the younger does have a belligerent streak.

These totally inappropriate and derisive tweets appear to contain the Chicago values that Rahm Emanuel promotes. They are certainly the opposite of “God with us.”

So shop at Target or don’t shop at Target. Eat at Chick-Fil-A or don’t eat at Chick-Fil-A.

Just shut the hell up about it, okay? There’s too much important stuff that needs attention to burn energy on this nonsense.

turfmonster | July 28, 2012 at 1:21 pm

These tweets from the Palin-haters would make for a good political commercial: “Should we be governed by the politicians that these folks support?”

Tim Hawkins has some wonderful love songs about Chik-fil-a
The second one shows Mr.&Mrs. Cathay.
G-d bless the Palins!

I think these Nitwits are angry because they weren’t aborted.

Well, well, well – What prejudice? Chicago’s only Chick-fil-A says they have openly gay employees

But heck, don’t let the facts get in the way of all the people who are trashing Sarah Palin for standing up for freedom of religion, freedom of speech and economic freedom … all the freedoms that help gays and lesbians thrive and prosper in America.

Gays more than anyone else MUST defend FREE SPEECH. Support Chick-fil-A!

Instead lets watch gays and lesbians support politicians like the Mayor of Chicago launch a Stalinist war against Chick-Fil-A.

The Left’s Stalinist War on Chick-Fil-A

Some people really need to wake up.

Upset about Chick-Fil-A? Go to their FB page and protest, if people feel so inclined.

However, don’t line up behind politicos like the Chicago and Boston Mayors who are acting like little Stalins while using the gay and lesbian community to raise money and generate votes from the left leaning GLBT community for the Democrats, but could not care less about their “cause.”

ConserveLiberty | July 28, 2012 at 2:27 pm

An intolerant person might counter these responders something about “you and the horse you rode in on,” but then that would be an intolerant person.

It’s easy to see why the “haters” despise Palin so. They probably are in the 47% who pay no federal income taxes and are sucking up entitlements. I doubt if many/any are employable.

My favorite comment left at the Twitchy article: The secret ingredient in Chick-Fil-A sandwiches is liberal outrage.
Sums it up nicely.

Of course, I find it rather comforting to know I won’t have to worry about running into Roseanne Barr and her ilk on my next trip to Chick-Fil-A.

And I’ll be back even more often if I have a chance of meeting Sarah.

Still it was a crushing blow when they dropped the lemon pie…

Andrew Wiggin | July 28, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Can’t blame ’em. They’re the same retards that think Sarah Palin, not Tina Fey said “I can see Russia from my back yard.”

Now they’re the retards that think Chick-fil-a said something against perverts.

Once again, expect class rhetoric from the left, not a class act.

theduchessofkitty | July 28, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I LOVE Free Speech!

… with waffle fries and a Coke, please!

holmes tuttle | July 28, 2012 at 4:58 pm

That’s it, this has just gone too far!

These libs can say what they want her intelligence, but that one guy who said “your ass is fat enough” just crossed the line.

I’m sure she doesn’t need anyone to stand up for her, but I will. As Al Pacino said in “Heat”, Gov Palin has a

I posted a screen grab of the tweets on my FB page and linked to this post. I said “The Left are disgusting.” Someone I used to know years ago (our mothers were life-long friends) posted this comment: You die. Bitch, never want to be associated with you, evermore, bitch

I asked her if she meant that for me and so far she hasn’t replied.
