Conservatives are having embarassing meltdowns over Chick-Fil-A ending donations to anti-LGBT groups

In a surprise turnaround, the controversial fried chicken chain and conservative darling Chick-Fil-A has announced that they will no longer be contributing money to groups with strong anti-LGBT leanings, specifically singling out the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Salvation Army.

The FCA’s Statement of Faith declares “neither heterosexual sex outside of marriage nor any homosexual act constitutes an alternative lifestyle acceptable to God” while the Salvation Army has supported legislation which would allow it to deny employment and federally-funded services to LGBT Americans and used their website to refer LGBTQ individuals to pseudoscientific and deeply traumatizing conversion therapy groups.

Protest efforts by LGBT activists led to the Chick-Fil-A’s sandwich becoming a culture war meme for the right-wing in their ceaseless efforts to trigger the libs, but now it’s the chuds who are melting down and crying crocodile tears over the business decisions that their favorite snack seller has made.

Add your name to tell Congress to investigate Pence for his role in Trump’s Ukraine corruption. The VP is complicit!

“Chick-fil-A’s shameful capitulation in the culture war” cried Kaylee McGhee at the Washington Examiner. Other right-wing grievance preachers like former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, and Dave Rubin took to Twitter to complain about how the multimillion-dollar restaurant had decided to stop alienating potential customers with their charitable donations to anti-gay groups.

It is the height of irony for the same folks who throw puffy tantrums about how movies are too political and athletes should just “stick to sports” are suddenly filling their proverbial diapers about how a fried chicken restaurant is no longer deciding to make political statements with their charitable donations. It really just goes to show how the American right-wing is nothing but a hollow mask of bigotry over the fave of plutocratic greed, giving their followers nothing substantial to cling to except bitterness and spite.
