The far-left activists on the San Antonio city council who recently succeeded in banning Chick-Fil-A from the local airport may soon be facing consequences for the move that many believe is rooted in hostility toward Christians.
The popular chain has been ensconced atop the left’s massive hate list ever since they determined that it was a threat to gay marriage and the promotion of the larger agenda of forcibly imposing their ideology on all who disagree with them by smearing them as bigots and engaging in organized bullying campaigns.
Despite giving back to communities by supporting a number of charitable causes, Chick-Fil-A continues to be demonized by extremists including House Democrats who last year made a big show of banning the “ideological food” from their traditional pre-Thanksgiving meal last year.

This time, it was the petty fascists in San Antonio who forced their intolerance of those whose religious beliefs conflict with their lifestyles down the throats of others by effectively preventing the company that they smeared as a ‘symbol of hate’ from the food court area at the airport.
Chick-Fil-A has long had a reputation for being anti-LGBTQ.
In 2012, the company’s CEO, Dan T. Cathy, said he opposed marriage equality. It was revealed the company donated millions of dollars to political groups seen as hostile to LGBTQ rights. Later that year, Chick-Fil-A released a statement saying. “Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”
However, recently released 2017 tax filings show the Chick-Fil-A Foundation donated more than $1.8 million to three groups with anti-LGBTQ policies.
District 1 City Councilman Roberto C. Treviño told Out In SA that he motioned for Paradies to secure another national brand to replace Chick-Fil-A. The motion before the City Council was amended to exclude Chick-Fil-A and was passed after a lengthy discussion.
“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Treviño said in a prepared statement. “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we don’t have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”
Once again Americans are under attack by those who want to tell them what to eat and what to think – or else.
The decision drew much criticism at the time including from Lone Star State GOP Senator Ted Cruz:

The discriminatory and overtly totalitarian move has now been met with a probe by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton who is himself a conservative Christian.
