Odd, I mean, how some things work out. Today Chick-fil-A suporters are flooding the restaurant, supporting the famed chicken sandwich chain, and BAM! A bomb threat is phoned into a Chick-fil-A. Stacy McCain has details and ponders is this just a random nut that hates chicken sandwiches?
Maybe somebody just hates chicken sandwiches:
Police and fire crews closed down the Chick-fil-A on Foxcroft Avenue in Martinsburg for nearly three hours following a bomb threat that was called in just before 1 p.m. today.
The caller mentioned that a “device” had been placed within the restaurant. The building was evacuated, but was deemed safe at about 3:45 p.m. after no bomb or any other type of device was discovered.
Martinsburg City Police and the Martinsburg Fire Department personnel investigated the scene, along with Berkeley County Sheriff Kenny Lemaster. A National Park Ranger with a canine unit arrived at the scene at approximately 2:45 p.m. to assist, and a second from the West Virginia State Police arrived later as well.
Let me ask you: Of all the Chick-fil-A’s in America to be targeted with a bomb threat, why this one? Is Berkeley County, W.Va., the kind of place where you would expect such a thing?
More at The Other McCain. My take on who did this is, who knows. A stupid kid with a warped sense of humor? Someone who gets a twisted thrill out of causing such a ruckus? Like I said, who knows, but i do know one thing, I, nor Stacy, nor anyone else I know is pointing the finger of blame at the left. Too bad the Left cannot act in a similar fashion. If the roles in this were reversed, the Left would be jumping to conclusions with both feet!
Of course, the support Chick-fil-A day has been a HUGE success, except for the Left, which is being reminded just how UNPOPULAR their radicalism is. Among the hardest hit? Rahm Emanuel, who is eating a lot of “birds” apparently was wrong about Chick-fil-A NOT meeting the values of Chicago
Donald Douglas has news that Wendys is wading into the debate, and might hurt their bottom line by doing so.
Wendy’s restaurants has stepped in it. See Business Insider, “A Bunch Of Wendy’s Restaurants Put Up Signs That Say ‘We Stand With Chick-Fil-A’.”
Smart move, the locations that put up those signs get it, but, of course, the big wigs at Wendy’s are not that bright, and seem to be more interested in being PC, than in defending free speech from Leftist bullies.
But then they backtracked on Twitter:
ALL costumers? Chick-fil-A serves ALL kind of folks too. Wendys needs to THINK about getting into this, but, like so many others they are deathly afraid of maybe offending someone that is in a “protected class” that they will offend many more people in the pursuit of being PC.
