Chalk up another loss for capitalism against political correctness. Today, the sad, sad story out of Johns Hopkins where the student government approved a resolution that will keep Chick-fil-A from building a restaurant on campus, thus denying the student body of a good meal. The reasoning for all of this? Because Chick-fil-A supports the whole traditional marriage thing.
From The College Fix:
The Student Government Association there approved a resolution that called on administrators to put to a halt any discussions or plans to bring a Chick-fil-A to campus, citing the company’s support of traditional marriage and saying the restaurant, if allowed at Johns Hopkins, would be a campus “microaggression.”
“The SGA does not support the proposal of a Chick-fil-A, in a current or future sense, particularly on any location that is central to student life,” states the resolution passed by the student government, which noted “visiting prospective and current students, staff, faculty, and other visitors who are members of the LGBTQ+ community or are allies would be subjected to the microaggression of supporting current or future Chick-fil-A development plans.”
Let’s put politics aside, here. Let’s not bring up the argument of which is right. Let’s boil all this down to one simple argument: Does Chick-fil-A make a damn good sandwich? The answer is a resounding yes. There’s nothing better than getting the original chicken sandwich, side of waffle fries, 6-count nuggets, Arnold Palmer to drink, and about ten Chick-fil-A sauces.
The student government is depriving the campus of good food. For what? Because they think that the LGBTQ community will be subjected to microaggression? Get out of here. There are starving children in Africa who would kill for a chicken sandwich and some waffle fries.
