Chick-fil-A tantrum shows there's no hope for Far Right

A few days ago, the only Chick-fil-A location in New York City was shut down by health authorities - because it was absolutely filthy. There were flies in the food, and inspectors found a staggering 59 critical health violations.

Naturally, the Far Right is throwing a screeching temper tantrum that the city has put a kink in Chick-fil-A's plans for world domination. They claim the fast food chain is being singled out because of its right-wing activism.

One Chick-fil-A fan cried on Twitter that the closure was part of a "war on religion." Another groaned, "sounds like the liberals will go to any length to close down a Christian co." Another whined, "why does this feel political by the progressive liberal left?"

The Far Right even scapegoated Muslims for the closure. One said, "prob no prayer room. CAIR."

Ironically, if this Chick-fil-A had been kept open, a lot of right-wing bigots who support Chick-fil-A for its social views would have ended up getting sick from the food there. I guess they like having their stomachs pumped.
