|White America: Saying "My Pleasure" to living under absolute despotism|
A random Facebook post by the bloated, turgid Gov. Mike Huckabee has enabled Chick-fil-A to have record one-day profits with an outpouring of support for the embattled privately-held company:
In order to get White Christians off the couch and into the streets, the only thing it took to start a resistance movement (remember, this is the second time, as Rick Santelli started the Tea Party on CNBC in 2009) is for our so-called conservative leaders (i.e., people on FOX News and talk radio) to start acting like leaders, and not be intimidated by insults like “racist” and “bigot” and “homophobe” hurled at them by the liberal media.
Civilization didn’t have to collapse. We didn’t need a Second Great Depression. Mike Huckabee, a “respectable” and “mainstream” face on television, simply had to make one post on Facebook about “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” and Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, and Glenn Beck had to back him up.If our conservative leaders would speak out more forcefully about the evils of black-on-White crime, multiculturalism, political correctness, and Third World immigration, close ranks and refuse to be intimidated by the liberal media, what do you suppose the result would be among the White Christian conservative masses?

“The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.
“Chick-fil-A is a family-owned and family-led company serving the communities in which it operates. From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business. For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family.
Our mission is simple: to serve great food, provide genuine hospitality and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”

During the '80s, the demographics of DeKalb County, including the Memorial Drive area, also changed dramatically. In 1980, of the 12,053 residents of Census Tract 220.02 along Memorial, only 22 were African-American. By 1990, 8,614 African-Americans lived in that tract, out of a total population of 14,319.
Memorial Drive snakes 16 miles through two counties, Fulton and DeKalb, and four municipalities, Atlanta, Decatur, Avondale Estates and Stone Mountain. And while it has one name, Memorial Drive actually seems like two different roads, with two distinct personalities --- the 10-mile urban stretch inside the Perimeter and the remaining six, suburban miles heading to the "big rock" at Stone Mountain.
The first Chick-fil-A to ever open was the one at Greenbriar Mall in South Fulton back in 1967. Opened at a time when the area was roughly 90 percent white (as well as the clientele), Greenbriar Mall and the surrounding area has undergone a culture (racial) shift, with the area now roughly 90 percent Black and fighting to survive (Greenbriar Mall boosters hope for its survival, Bill Torpy, Atlanta Journal Constitution, December 21, 2009):
How much longer does the first Chick-fil-A location have before it goes the way of so many other businesses at Greenbriar Mall? (And how much money are the Cathy family pumping into the mall to keep it alive, knowing full well the psychological defeat that closing the first store would have?)
