Because tolerance! RT @HuffPostPol Chicago official hopes to block a planned Chick-fil-A http://t.co/MKMJw2JL

So what exactly did Chick-fil-A do again?

People think Chick-fil-A should be banned from Boston & Chicago b/c the owners hold the same views that Obama held 6 months ago.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that the restaurant chain’s values “are not Chicago’s values.”

I'm not sure he meant this as the compliment it is. @RahmEmanuel on Chik-fil-A: "Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values."

"Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values," says Rahm Emanuel. Yeah, 1/3rd of Chick-fil-A management hasn't been charged with corruption.

Rahm Emanuel: “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values” So, there should be 11 murders in one day in a Chick-fil-A? #ChickFilA

Emanuel presciently told the Chicago Tribune that the North Elston Ave. location of the fast-food restaurant — which doesn’t yet exist, by the way — “disrespect[s] our fellow neighbors and residents” and gave some unsolicited business advice: “This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.” So why not let the franchise owners waste their money on an empty building? Or is Chick-fil-A too bigoted to fail?

Michelle Malkin, Dana Loesch and others would like a few words with the cities’ mayors regarding priorities.

Hollywood Chick-fil-A hatred is bad. But Boston Mayor Thomas Menino's p.c. tyranny is far, far worse==> http://t.co/iJrrhtfH

Chicago and Boston must be doing great with unemployment since they're banning businesses from opening there.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 25, 2012

9.8% unemployment rate. RT @redeyechicago Alderman Moreno says no to a new Chick-fil-A in Logan Square: http://t.co/wadVLVS3

@rahmemanuel It seems to me by denying Chick-fil-A in Chicago, you are also denying your citizens of jobs & business growth. Just saying…

— Connie Franks (@ladynchesapeake) July 25, 2012

Will Chicago’s attempts at chicken control be as successful as the city’s gun control efforts?

Are criminals in Chicago shooting people by the hundreds with Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, @RahmEmanuel ?

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 25, 2012

@DLoesch @RahmEmanuel Yummy chicken sandwiches must be committing all those murders in Chicago.

— Latino Conservative (@LTNConservative) July 25, 2012

I sure hope @RahmEmanuel shares his secret to solving unemployment & crime with other mayors too busy with both to ban businesses!

Update:

It looks like Boston mayor Thomas Menino has been hit over the head with the First Amendment bat. It’s finally dawned on him that he can’t block businesses for disagreeing with him:

Meanwhile, in Boston, Mayor Silvertongue backs down on Chick-fil-A: http://t.co/VQF9Y4kH

— Jim Treacher (@jtLOL) July 26, 2012

“I can’t do that. That would be interference to his rights to go there,” Menino said, referring to company president Dan Cathy, who drew the mayor’s wrath by going public with his views against same-sex marriage.

Menino acknowledged Cathy’s freedom to express his views, but was unapologetic about his own tough stance that’s become national news.

“Some people might not like these positions, but as mayor of the city of Boston, you can’t run and hide, and I’ll always protect people’s rights,” Menino said. “I’m right out front there and if people don’t like it, I feel sorry for them. But I’m the mayor of Boston and I get elected to make my opinions known.”

Trust us, Mayor Menino. You’ve made your opinions known. Don’t condemn others for doing the same.
