The Czar wrote a brief tweet yesterday evening that seemed to resonate with a lot of people. Rather than quote or repeat it, the Czar will simply restate it more formally.
Chick-Fil-A apparently set a world record in fast food sales yesterday, as pretty much every franchise location was practically overwhelmed. At one of the locations outside Chicago, both the Mandarin and the Czar noticed that cars were stopping traffic, people were parking in the street, and lines were out the door even in the late-morning, pre-lunchtime hours.
Today, the crowds seemed about 20% or more over average, doubtless as overflow patrons who gave up trying to get in yesterday came back today.
And here it is: this massive spike in support for Chick-Fil-A is not, pace MSNBC, a day of intolerance against same sex marriage. Spotty media coverage seems to be admitting, by not proving the opposite, that most Chick-Fil-A customers dont really care either way about it.
What happened yesterday was more a case of Americans being dead tired of the Lefts intolerant bullshit. Yes: Americans would rather support an individuals right to free speech than go through one more round of hearing how horrible the whole country is.
The Day of Intolerance was nothing intolerant; rather, it was a reaction to the Years of Intolerance by a progressively shrill, shrieky, nails-on-the-chalkboard annoying, caterwauling continued by a bunch of bullies with nothing better to do than holler and make noise about topics they demonstrably understand very little about. And perhaps not surprisingly, just as most Americans dont really care one way or another about gay America, it appears that most gay Americans really dont care about the owner of Chick-Fil-A; many gay Americans actually frequent their local Chick-Fil-A because its not a bad chicken sandwich.
The entire controversy was manufactured to create Yet Another False Wedge between Americans; the entire Support Chick-Fil-A day was equally manufactured to push back against this manipulative nonsense. And the millions of Americans who bought chicken sandwiches yesterday have totally overwhelmed the original screechers. Yesterday, the average American cast votes against the Leftist manipulators and won handily.
In two weeks or two months, the same group of screechers will see something shiny, point their clawed fingers at it, and let out another banshee wail of invectives, forgetting all about Chick-Fil-A, its owner, or his political views, and instead start gnashing their teeth over the next new thing. Except it won’t be same sex marriage, but firearms. Or educational reform. Or this. Or that. Something. Anything that can be used to fracture and distract American opinion from how distasteful the Left has made things over the last 50 years.
Only this time, they will need to plan out a defensive strategy, because the foolish idea that the best defense is a strong offense failed them yesterday. They had no back up plan except to have mealy-mouthed television anchors make laughably bonehead statements which only wound up underscoring how satirically pathetic the whole Mad-Libs fill-in-the-blank intolerance protest model has made itself.
The desperation has now become humilation.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
