Mayor de Blasio vs. Freedom of Choice (of Where to Have Lunch)

New York's Mayor Bill de Blasio is busying
himself with a campaign of his own concoction
to get his fellow New Yorkers to boycott the
Chick-fil-A restaurants which have recently
opened around old Gotham.

What has incensed the Big Apple's mayor to
the point where he wants to make the city
give a collective cold shoulder to the southern
U.S.-based chicken fast-food business's eateries?
He claims that Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT (which,
by the way, stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual,
Transgender), in that, according to Hizzoner
their restaurants discriminate against these folks,
especially regarding marriage for gay people.
"I'm certainly not going to patronize them and I
wouldn't urge any other New Yorker to patronize
them. But they do have a legal right," the left-wing
mayor stated. At least he hasn't issued a proclamation
ordering New York's citizenry to avoid Chick-fil-A;
knowing the penchant for nanny-stating the people
in that city that both he and his predecessor in
the office of Mayor have exhibited, this is quite
a blessing.

For their part, a spokesman for Chick-fil-A informed
the public that "The ... culture and service tradition
in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor,
dignity and respect --- regardless of their beliefs, race,
creed, sexual orientation or gender." But Mayor de
Blasio's reason for his hostility to Chick-fil-A with
his accompanying resentment of its presence in his
city is that Chick-fil-A's owners political views are
on the right while the mayor's are on the left. And
even though there are laws in New York City that
prohibit discrimination, as there are anywhere you
go in these United States, de Blasio, being a good
progressive liberal holier-than-thou, more-moral-
than-thou, elitist pig, wants to punish and castigate
any person or organization that politically disagrees
with him. Moreover, New York's mayor who would
be king has neither the business, nor the right, to
tell the citizens of New York where they should eat
lunch or engage in any kind of commerce. This is
one of the freedoms that people in a free society
such as ours is guaranteed and safeguarded, much to
the dismay and discomfort of far lefties like Mayor
de Blasio. By the by, Chick-fil-A also employs the
very people that de Blasio claims the company shuns,
which renders his criticisms of Chick-fil-A devoid of
fact. Where applicable law is concerned, so long as
Chick-fil-A doesn't discriminate against anyone based
on whatever racial, gender, sexual orientation, or any
other category that our government concerns itself
with, then what does it matter what opinions that the
owners of Chick-fil-A hold? The left-wingers haven't
yet rendered illegal the thinking of certain thoughts ---
at least not yet.

In this, and all like matters in the marketplace of goods,
services, and ideas, let the people decide. Free markets
and free minds are the rule in the U.S., and this rule
is inviolable. If the Bill de Blasios of our country can't
handle this, and apparently that is the case, then too bad
so sad for them.
