LGBT Democrats cry fowl on Chick-fil-A voter drive

Members of the Stonewall Democrats group of Pinellas County, Florida are upset about the decision made by county elections supervisor Deborah Clark (R) to hold voter registration drives at nine Chick-fil-A locations, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Stonewall Democrats are “LGBT Democratic groups across the US that work to elect pro-LGBT Democrats in federal, state, and local elections, serve as a bullhorn for LGBT governmental issues, and supply LGBT voters to ballot boxes.”

Chick-fil-A is the fried chicken chain whose leadership backs traditional marriage and various conservative causes. (It’s also closed on Sundays.)

Needless to say Stonewall Democrats don’t like Chick-fil-A and view its products as symbols of pure concentrated eeevil.

With the blessing of the radical left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, gay rights supporter Floyd Lee Corkins attacked the national headquarters of the conservative Family Research Council and shot a security guard in the process not too long ago. The SPLC identifies the FRC as a “hate group.”

Corkins said in court that he wanted to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.” The shooting took place after a Chick-fil-A executive made public his support for traditional marriage.

Susan McGrath, who heads the Pinellas Democratic Party, said placing the voter drives at Chick-fil-A would be akin to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the same drives at a Planned Parenthood location.

She’s right in one sense.

Both Chick-fil-A and Planned Parenthood sell body parts.

Chick-fil-A sells fried chicken parts while Planned Parenthood sells body parts from dismembered human babies.
