What would the students of Duquesne University do without the campus activists of the world, who are now trying to protect their fellow students from the horrors of Chick-fil-A? Probably just enjoy Chick-fil-A, to be honest.
What about Chick-fil-A has mobilized student activists there against the fast-food chain? They’re upset over the controversy five years ago in which it was uncovered that Chick-fil-A had donated money to a number of Christian groups, some of which focused on opposing same sex marriage. In total, around $2 million had been donated to anti-gay marriage groups between 2003-2009. For a company that brings in over $6 billion a year, that’s clearly pennies on the dollar of their total revenue, but it was still enough to lead to massive protests.
Even though the protests against Chick-fil-A were largely unsuccessful (as they sparked counter protests, such as “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”), the company decided it would be best to get out of politics altogether and stopped donating to such groups. But the continued protests prove that once you’re a sinner in the eyes of today’s progressives, you’re beyond redemption no matter what you do.
An alumni of Duquesne University, retired Army Ranger Sean Parnell has some choice words for the snowflakes protesting the chain’s appearance on their campus.
“They’re a bunch of babies,” he said. “College is suppose to prepare you for the real world, not shield you from opposing opinions, and safe spaces do exactly that.”
“My message is toughen up,” Parnell explained. “There are no safe spaces in the real world. If you’re going to be successful in this life after you leave college, you’ve got to learn to embrace diversity and open yourself up to a litany of different opinions.”
“Safe spaces don’t prepare students for the real world,” he continued. “That is fascism cloaked in free speech. That is not what America was founded on.”
In the end, Parnell said he simply doesn’t understand why the students don’t want Chick-fil-A on their campus, given how good the restaurant’s food is.
“I would’ve killed for Chick-fil-A on my campus when I was a student at Duquesne,” he said.
Ditto to that last comment. Watch below:
