Chick Fil A

Hater Chicken Concedes


After a brouhaha erupted over Chick-fil-A supporting hate groups, conservatives rallied around the chicken sandwich people.

Conservatives rallied by posting photos of themselves on social media eating chicken sandwiches. That was their idea of sticking it to liberals. It was another form of tribalism.

It doesn’t matter how abhorrent conservatives are, the base will rally. Supporting hate groups qualifies as abhorrent. You would think at least one prominent conservative would have reached out and said, “You make a nice sandwich, but maybe stop supporting hate groups.”

Now, Chick-fil-A is caving. They’ve decided to no longer donate to groups that hate gays, lesbians, trans, etc. And conservatives are flipping out. Remember when they told us to get over it and buy a chicken sandwich, dammit? Yeah, now they’re crying about being betrayed. Betrayed by Chick-fil-A. Now they know how McRib fans feel.

Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and the man who spawned Sarah Huckabee Sanders, tweeted, “In Aug 2012, I coordinated a national @ChickfilA Appreciation Day after they were being bullied by militant hate groups. Millions showed up. Today, @ChickfilA betrayed loyal customers for $$. I regret believing they would stay true to convictions of founder Truett Cathey. Sad.”

Aw. It sounds like Papa Huckasans doesn’t appreciate Chick-fil-A anymore. Here’s the thing, Huckabee, you don’t support hate groups and complain about being bullied by hate groups. The fact of the matter is, Mike Huckabee is one of the ringleaders of hate.

Drew Anderson, director of campaigns and rapid response for GLAAD said, “If Chick-fil-A is serious about their pledge to stop holding hands with divisive anti-LGBTQ activists, then further transparency is needed regarding their deep ties to organizations like Focus on the Family. Chick-fil-A investors, employees, and customers can greet today’s announcement with cautious optimism, but should remember that similar press statements were previously proven to be empty.”

So all that show of support by conservatives, the “appreciation day,” social media sandwich photos, etc, were to no avail. Did Chick-fil-A figure out that conservatives are a dying species? Did they figure out, even though they’re based in the deep south, that liberals and moderates outnumber conservatives? Or did they just figure out that Popeyes new sandwich is kicking their ass and doing so without hate?

What’s next? Will Chick-fil-A figure out that people like chicken sandwiches on Sundays too?

New Book: Tales From The Trumpster Fire

Watch me draw.

Meat Kills


I’ve drawn too many cartoons on food lately. I’ve drawn two on McDonald’s (one was local for Utah), I drew the Iowa corn cartoon last Saturday and now this. Food is either hitting the news too much or I need to start eating more than one meal a day. I’m hungry.

The World Health Organization issued a report that stated we’re all going to die. OK it didn’t exactly say that but it did give the impression that Birkenstock-wearing vegetarians will inherit the Earth. That’s a serious bummer. The organization believes eating meat, pork and anything that doesn’t taste like a mop will give you cancer. You can still eat fish but the only ones who actually want to eat fish every day of their lives is other fish. Even bears get tired of fish now and then which is why you see them occasionally chasing hikers. You never see bears chasing tofu.

By the way, I just saw this trivia: Did you know the largest toy distributor in the world is McDonald’s? I do recall around 1995 my son pitching a fit if he didn’t get the Power Ranger he wanted. Nobody liked Yellow Power Ranger and I think we accumulated six of those.

Another piece of trivia for you: Most people will not vote for a vegetarian. Vegetarian Ben Carson is promising that if he’s elected he will occasionally eat something killed by Ted Nugent. I also read most people won’t vote for a candidate if they don’t like their pets which explains why Alice Cooper has never run for president.

I don’t mind doing cartoons like this every now and then. When I say “cartoons like this” I mean cartoons that aren’t mean. I can give my clients and editors a day to breathe easy without any angry phone calls…unless there’s some peeved off cows out there who got their udders in a twist.

I’ll do something mean tomorrow. Ben Carson said he wants to kill liberal speech at public universities and that he once tried to stab someone (I wonder if someone rushed him). Jeb Bush said he can do “cooler things” other than run for president and also stated “blah blah blah.” Donald Trump is still freaking out about Iowa. Some cop went out of his way to visit a classroom and beat up a student which was caught on camera. I’ll be busy tomorrow.
