This era of woke capitalist tyranny demands a response. Conservatives need to be more circumspect about where they dine, because our eating habits, like many of our other spending habits, have a broad impact on the fate of conservatism in our country. The more we support restaurant chains like Chick-fil-A and Mission BBQ, the more we will buoy broader causes that protect our freedom to live, think, and worship as we please. So raise a cup of sweet tea to the success of Chick-fil-A.
I’m so old, I remember when being pandered to by corporate marketing was considered insulting to one’s dignity. In fact, I’m so old that I remember when volunteering to serve as a corporate mascot would have been considered beneath contempt. Most of all, I’m so old that I remember when the invasion of every inconsequential nook and cranny of private life by political calculations was considered a pretty good definition of totalitarianism.
