New Orleans Public School Rejects Free Lunch from Chick-Fil-A to Respect LGBTQ Staff

Huh?

Published

on

On Thursday, October 11, 2019, a New Orleans public charter school rejected a complimentary teachers’ lunch from Chick-Fil-A in an expression of solidarity with the LGBTQ community.

Steven Corbett, the principal of Lusher Charter School, declared in a statement that Chick-Fil-A’s values did not conform with the school’s “culture of kindness.”

“Out of respect to our LGBTQ staff, we have chosen to not serve Chick-Fil-A at an employee lunch. The #1 rule at Lusher is to ‘Be Kind,’ and we live this motto every day,” the principal said, according to a report from local CBS affiliate WWL. “Chick-Fil-A has been politically outspoken about its views, and we feel it is not part of Lusher’s culture of kindness and community.”

The College Football Playoff Foundation provided the meal, which said it will try to bring the teachers from another restaurant instead. Tony Fay, a PR representative of the organization, said that he respected the school’s decision, according to a WWL report.

Chick-Fil-A has been a target of PC mobs after a report released earlier this year disclosed that Chick-Fil-A Foundation donated $1.8 million in 2017 to Christian and social conservative groups with a supposed track record of anti-LGBTQ behavior.

The report resurfaced previous attacks against CEO Dan Cathy, who was bashed for his disapproval of gay marriage back in 2012.

Chick-fil-A is one of the primary targets of leftist thought policers who punish anyone who deviates from their standards. Political correctness culture is now so ingrained in America, that private institutions can be subject to leftist harassment if their spokespeople dare to speak out of line.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
