Is Chicago Mayor Dead Fish Emanuel acting like a Nazi by threatening to run Chik-Fil-A out of town because the CEO supports traditional marriage? That's what Nazi thugs do. Shame on you, Dead Fish. Perhaps he didn't learn from recent Jewish history.

Rahm Emanuel Joins Fight Against Chick-fil-A

Former top White House aide Rahm Emanuel has decided to join the
ongoing food fight between gay rights advocates and the president of
the fast food chain Chick-fil-A. The Chicago mayor wants to block
further expansion of the chain in the Windy City, The Chicago Sun-Times reported.
The battle erupted when Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said that he
supported the “biblical definition” of marriage as between a man and a
“I think we’re inviting God’s judgment when we shake our fist at him,
you know, [saying], ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a
marriage.’ And I pray on God’s mercy on our generation that has such a
prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we would have the audacity to
try and redefine what marriage is all about,” Cathy said later on a
radio show according to the paper.
Emanuel is the second big-city mayor to go after Chick-fil-A. Mayor Thomas Menino said the chain “doesn’t belong in Boston.”
“Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of
our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna
be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values,”
Emanuel said Wednesday according to the Sun-Times.
“What the CEO has said as it relates to gay marriage and gay couples is
not what I believe, but more importantly, it’s not what the people of
Chicago believe. We just passed legislation as it relates to civil union
and my goal and my hope … is that we now move on recognizing gay
marriage. I do not believe that the CEO’s comments . . . reflects who
we are as a city.”
