What they should do, rather then firing him, is stick him on a probationary period that deals only in the customer service relations. Let him get a taste of his own medicine.


Why are you trying to tell anyone else what THEY should do with THEIR employees?
What about his employers freedom to employ whom they choose and not whom they choose not to?
Do you think that the government should force them to give him back his job?

Liberals are collectivists. That means they cant tell the difference between the President of a company and a simple employee. They think if one is guilty, all must be guilty. As America becomes more communistoid you`ll be seeing much more of this.

Excellent point. According to the liberal/socialist point of view, no single person does anything. The group does everything.
How many major inventions were invented by committee?

Doesn't matter, he was off the job and his performance has nothing to do with Chick Filet. If he wants to be an arse that's his pejorative but to lose his job over this, is nothing short of politics. Not saying he was in the right, because I myself have dealt with it on my end, but for someone to get him fired, it's just wrong.


This is the power of collective anger and social media.

I find it fascinating that people on Twitter can be arrested and charged for making a racial or insulting comment, as long as there is enough anger and public outrage, yet the thousands of others who respond to them with threats of physical violence are let off the hook.

There is a social justice aspect to this, but it seems to rely solely on how many people scream about it.

I hate that company with a passion. There are not enough hours in the day for me to express my disgust. But the guy chose the wrong target. And then the public sided with the underdog, as we would expect. Public outrage prompted the move.

It's a damn shame there isn't as much public outrage for the actions and behaviours of that sick and twisted corporation too.

Conservatives are idiots, this means that they cannot tell the difference between fact and fantasy.

This comment really does nothing to advance the conversation. How about finding a better way to phrase your comment?

Freedom of speech doesn't give you the right to harass someone. Which is just what this guy did.


Yes, the right to freedom of speech comes with some responsibility. He should have behaved more ethically.

Some people think "freedom of speech" gives them the right to go out in public with a bullhorn telling the world that another person is a paedophile just because they dislike them...

Pure publicity. You notice they aren't firing the other 250 CEO assholes they routinely hire...as part of just 'good business' policy!

Well, that's just it.

The YouTube video posted by Professor Adam Smith is indefensible.

The only thing they can do is start name calling just like the immature Adam Smith.

Adam Smith is the new poster boy for the DNC. Maybe he should give the keynote

at the DNC Convention?


Yesterday this video had 152,700 hits. Today it has 299,229 hits!


A SuperStar is born!

I admit, I am not all that surprised. The girl in the drive through has nothing to do with anything and is being unfairly attacked! Actually, I felt she handled herself pretty well. Pointing out that they welcome and serve all people.


I actually feel bad for Chik-Fil-A. One man states where he stands on gay marriage Was it really that big of a surprise?) and it is hurting the whole company.

People don't seem to realize that they are not discriminating against anyone. The COO of Chick-Fil-A stated where he hands on gay marriage... That's it....

Now we have morons, harassing fast food employees who have nothing to do with anything.

Well, at least Vante, Inc. got their 15 minutes of fame.

I never even heard of that Tucson medical device company.

---------------
Adam Smith also had them in full damage control mode over at the

University of Arizona - Tucson

They very quickly removed his profile but Glenn Beck did a quick screen save before

they did.

Adam Smith was an Adjunct Lecturer there.




Adam Smith gave lectures at the McClelland Hall Room 315R.

That's just it. This is a blown up protest over nothing. No where did he say they won't hire gays, won't serve gays, ecrt. Just that he feels marrage should be bewteen a man and a woman. Well, lets string him up he voiced an (gasp) opinion that doesn't agree with theirs.

- Attacking Chick-fil-A has just won the election for President Mitt Romney.

- Romney supporters are gaining enthusiasm.

- Obama supporters are losing enthusiasm.

- Those same lines that were wrapped around Chick-fil-A will be wrapped around the

voting booth.

The only question right now is exactly how many seats will the GOP get in the

United States Senate?

58 or 61 seats ???

Actually, his comment does. He states his belief that liberals are collectivists(this is demonstrably true), and uses that hypothesis to explain why a liberal would think it acceptable to attack a lowly worker in a company perceived as "evil"(which to them means that said company/group disagrees with them) instead of taking their issue up with the individual who made the offensive comment.

Fox News is advertising the Chick-fil-A story on its front page.

See: Chick-fil-A Confrontation Costs Executive His Job.

- Chick-fil-A Confrontation - Fox News

The other news site are ignoring the story. Hmmmm.....i wonder why?

All five commentators called Adam Smith an arrogant jerk on The Five.

Bill O'Reilly said he would have poured the ice water on his head !


----------

Everyone was very impressed with the professionalism of the Chick-fil-A employee.

It was awesome watching Bill O'Reilly completely destroy most of what Bill O'Reilly has been doing for years.
The king of all boycotts, suddenly finds it un-American to boycott and you follow him along lapping this crap up.

That scares me. Bill is at least too obvious to fool anyone and he still manages to.
