Cathy

While most websites noted the death of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by focusing on his rags-to-riches story of building the largest chicken chain in America, the liberals at TheWire.com decided to take a parting shot by labeling Cathy as “polarizing” in its obituary.

Chick-fil-A’s Polarizing Founder S. Truett Cathy Has Died

The wire pointed to an article in Forbes to back up their claim that Cathy was polarizing, but that article focuses on Cathy’s son Dan who is the president and CEO of the company.

In 2012, Cathy inadvertently occupied the center of a national firestorm when comments he made against same-sex marriage were widely reported just as ballot initiatives to legalize gay marriage were being introduced in four states.

Even if the same-sex brouhaha was about S. Truett Cathy, it still isn’t a reason to call him polarizing.  The company is private and can say and do what it wants.  If customers don’t like it they can take their business elsewhere, which some did. At the same time conservatives rallied behind the company and turned out in droves to show their support after the media and the LGBT bullies pounced on the company.

What irks liberals in the media is that Chick-fil-A continues to prosper despite holding to Christian principles which include closing on Sundays which is unheard of in the fast food industry.

Cathy is probably having a big hearty laugh in heaven.

 

 

 

As soon as George Zimmerman was declared “not guilty”  on Saturday, the liberal media has gone into overdrive to try and paint the decision as a failure of our justice system, rather than pointing out that the prosecution had a weak case from the start and didn’t do a very good job in presenting their case.

trayvon-martinThe decision was a major blow to the media which tried extremely hard to make the case about race and racism,while ignoring the facts.

NBC was one of the first to go to bat for Martin with an edited version of the 911 call, that totally changed the context of the call.  Then there is the media as a whole who chose to run pictures of Martin at age 12-where he looked wide-eyed and innocent, rather than more recent photos which showed a different young man, while showing a less than flattering picture of George Zimmerman in order to make him appear guilty.

MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Bloom weighed in on the trial, by saying that the prosecution needed to focus extensively on the racial angle in their summation-though their was no evidence that race played a part in the incident, and added on another appearance that Martin’s reference to Zimmerman as a “creepy ass-cracker” was lighthearted and humorous, and not as serious as Zimmerman’s derogatory comments about Martin.

Also, in trying to make the case for this being racially motivated, Zimmerman- whose mother is from Peru, was referred to as a  white Hispanic.  What’s next, white Black?  Oh, sorry, that’s an oreo. Gimme a break!

Now the focus of the media along with other liberals and Democrats is to try and convince the Justice Department to file civil charges against Zimmerman, while decrying the decision and harping on how the judicial system doesn’t treat blacks fairly.

Even President Obama, who said earlier this year that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon, reminded the public that the jury has spoken.

That message seems to be lost on the media.

While black leaders condemn the decision, they weren’t quite so outraged when former NFL star O.J. Simpson was acquitted of killing his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, who both happened to be white in 1995.  While many people were outraged at the verdict, there wasn’t a wide-scale by protests by whites as we are now seeing by blacks after the Zimmerman decision.

MSNBC hardball host Chris Matthews was at it again on Friday night when at the beginning of his program he mentioned the just announced appointment of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to the Intelligence Committee.

Matthews: Gentlemen, before we proceed I just one of those flash news flashes that I have to report immediately upon getting it.  Congresswomen Michele Bachmann of Minnesota has been named to the Intelligence Committee (laughing) What genius Howard thought this was the perfect match? (still laughing)

Howard Fineman: Uh, I have no comeback.  That speaks for itself.

This is how Matthews deals with politicians especially ones of the conservative persuasion that get under his skin is to make light of them as a way to denigrate their ability.

For Bachmann she shouldn’t be offended by this slight but should wear it as a badge of honor that Matthews is irked enough to recognize her.  It’s almost as good as being named Olbermann’s Worst Person in the World.
