The Morning Briefing: Chick-fil-A Caved to the Wokescolds...OR DID THEY?

By Their Chicken Ye Shall Know Them

America caught a break on Monday, and was able to take the day off from a singular obsession with Impeachment Kabuki Theater. Not a complete break, but enough of one, thanks to Chick-fil-A making a shift in its corporate charitable donation strategy.


The first part of the day saw most conservative fans of Chick-fil-A lamenting the fact that the company yielded to pressure from the always-protesting Left and made a decision to stop donating to some charities that are allegedly “anti-LGBTQ.”

Anyone who has been paying any attention knows that just because the Right is unhappy doesn’t mean that the Left is. That’s primarily because they are incapable of not complaining. In the case of LGBTQ issues, however, unless you’ve given up your children for gender reassignment before they’ve reached the age of six, you aren’t doing enough to make them happy.

Later in the day, the company denied having given in, saying that they were merely refocusing their charitable priorities.

Many conservatives remained unmoved because, while Chick-fil-A said they’re donating money to help homelessness, they had cut off funding to the Salvation Army, which is huge, nationwide, and helps the homeless. It seemed to them that the move was made purely due to Salvation Army’s stance on LGBTQ issues.

There are any number of reasons that Chick-fil-A could have for cutting ties with the Salvation Army. We will only know if this was truly a capitulation to the rabid wokesters when we see who the company gives money to going forward.


Monday did provide a perfect snapshot into our present Age of Outrage, however, when legions of previously devoted Chick-fil-A fans turned on them and decided not to give the company the benefit of the doubt.

I realize mine is an unpopular opinion, but I’m not often swayed by popular opinion (ask me about high-scoring football games one day). While many see this as an important battle in the culture war, I see it as a chicken place I eat at maybe once a year.

The closest Chick-fil-A to me is next to an In-N-Out anyway, and that wins out over chicken every time.

And they’ve still got Bible verses on their drink cups.
