If there is one thing that we’ve learned about 2018 so far, it’s that anything and everything we encounter in our daily lives, from the mundane to the monumental, has a political price tag attached to it.
This could certainly be blamed on social media and the internet as a whole, with our inter-connectivity leading to a melding of our entire lives with one another’s. Just a few decades ago it was consider impolite to even skirt around the topics that would be discussed on Capitol Hill unless you yourself were there, debating alongside our public servants. If you brought that sort of thing around a dinner party, that was a surefire way to get uninvited to the next party that the neighbors threw.
Today, however, it feels as though you wake into a cloud of political pontification the moment your eyelids peel apart. You reach for your phone, because that’s your television now. And you alarm clock. And your newspaper. And your typewriter. You reach for it, and the first thing you do is see what everyone else has done since you last were conscious. And then, there it is, draped in off-white and slate blue on Facebook’s ever-changing newsfeed: The item that will trigger you today.
Was it another tweet by the leader of the free world that will go over your head, dear liberal? Or was it someone’s red baseball cap?
No, today, it’s going to be fast food, because, gosh darnit, Chick Fil A won an award and I am not one to miss an opportunity to talk about waffle fries.
More and more evidence keeps pouring in that the Left’s war on the fast food chain Chick-fil-A has failed abysmally. For the third year in a row, it has been crowned America’s number one fast-food chain.
“Chick-fil-A was named America’s top fast-food restaurant for the third year in a row in the 2018 American Customer Satisfaction Index’s Restaurant Report, which surveyed more than 22,500 American consumers,” reports Ledger-Enquirer.
The Left’s most hated chain beat out notable names such as Pizza Hut, Arby’s, Taco Bell, Subway, and Starbucks for the title. It totaled a satisfaction score of 87, trailed by Panera Bread and Papa John’s with a score of 82. Subway trailed third with a score of 81.
What was the leftist outrage all about? Religious freedom, of course.
The Atlanta-based company has held the top spot for three years now, which means their popularity only climbed following the backlash over CEO Dan Cathy expressing support for traditional marriage. The controversy reached such a fever-pitch that even city mayors tried to ban them from doing business.
Spoiler alert: It hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the golden heavenly gift of Chick Fil A waffle fries yet.
