It's not because the food's that good. It's good, but not that good.
It's not because the food's cheap. Actually, for 99c, you can get a bigger burger than that double cheese.
It is because that friend of equality, Rev. Donald Wildmon has called a boycott on the Golden Arches.
Part of this started last year when MickeyD's ran an ad in support of SF Pride. And for No-Neck. this, of course you know, means war-ah!
AFA has put a petition a site they created called www.boycottmcdonalds.com. On it, it states.....
What the boycott of McDonald's IS NOT about:
*This boycott is not about
*It is not about homosexuals eating at McDonald's.
*It is not about how homosexual employees are treated.
What the boycott of McDonald's IS about
*It is about McDonald's, as
a corporation, refusing to remain neutral in the culture wars. (what do
you mean by "neutral, Donny Dear???") McDonald's has chosen not to remain
neutral but to give the full weight of their corporation to promoting the
homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage.
Yeah, I'll have some fries with that I-do!
They have an online petition, and a paper petition you can download. They have also posted a letter written to Wildmon by Pat Harris, Global Chief Diversity Officer (whaaaa?) of McDonald's. On it he quotes McDonald's founder Ray Kroc: " "Our founder Ray Kroc once said, ’None of us is as good as all of us.’........this is a core value of McDonald's."
To which our No-Necked friend replies "phiffle" to that values rubbish. Don't they know what we did to Ford???? (sorry....car sales dropped even more steeply after the AFA boycott, showing there were big problems under the Blue Oval before that....Wildmon just co-opted it and just called it his doing!). And let's not talk about those sodomite-lovers at DISNEY! Why things are so bad there that Wall-E is the number one movie in America, millions more are watching ESPN, and ABC's has hist like "Wipeout," "How I Survived..," and that dancing show...and don't forget "High School Musical!"
Well, maybe THAT boycott didn't work out either.
The fact is that Donald Wildmon is on his period again and he won't stop until every ho-mo-s*x-u-wul in A-mer-ree-kah is denied their Big Macs.
(Though I do know that some have taste for.......wait for it........Whoppers!)
And if it is Wildmon's want to boycott all pro-gay businesses.....his robotic followers will be doing without a lot.
From the HRC's Corporate Equality Index:
- Financial: Allianz, American Express, Capital One, Chubb, JP Morgan Chase, Metlife
- Food: Pepsico, Kraft, General Mills, Coca-Cola,
- Drink: Anhuser-Busch
- Cars and trucks: Ford, GM, Chrysler, and VW
- Heck, even Mac and PC are on the same page!
- Here is the full index for 2008: http://www.hrc.org/issues/workplace/ceihome.asp
In fact, the HRC says that there is a 41 percent increase in the number of gay-friendly businesses for 2008.
And yes, just as we asked you to buy Fords during all this, we are asking you to circumvent this bozo's clowning by buying all the McRibs, Big Macs, McNuggets, and McMuffins you can eat (lay off the Southern Fried Chicken sandwiches, though. IMHO, they taste......well....funny).
Look Donny, I know it sucks to be on the losing end. Hey, I'm a Lakers fan. But, as a piece token, my brother, hows about a nice Angus Third Pounder on me, huh?
Then, it's on. Again.
