Today is Chick-Fil-A Appreciation day according to former Governor Mike Huckabee. Lines are around the corner at many of the “restaurants” across the country, proving yet again that America is still a nation of close minded, prejudiced mouth-breathers.

I wish it was Gold’s Gym who hated gay people – At least these bigots would get a workout.

What would you call somebody who supported the KKK? What would you call a person who agreed with Nazi’s? Would you go buy a chicken sandwich from somebody who said that white people shouldn’t marry “them niggers”? What does it say about a person if they support open bigotry in 2012?

Well I guess it says that you aren’t that bright.

My friend posted this on Facebook, and I think it’s important for context, since words DO matter. Here are a few definitions for you all:

From Merriam-Webster: “Bigot” (n): a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

From the Oxford English Dictionary: “Tolerance” (n): the ability or willingness to tolerate the existence of opinions or behaviour that one dislikes or disagrees with.”

From the Oxford English Dictionary: “Intolerance” (n): unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behaviour that differ from one’s own.

Congrats America. Abe Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony, and Dr. Martin Luther King would be proud to see waffle fries become a symbol of hatred and prejudice.

This chick nailed it:
