Take a good look at today’s left. Adam M. Smith is the epitome of it. He’s the kind of guy who goes to a fast food restaurant to pick fights with the sweet young woman behind the counter — who only wants to put food on her own table. Adam is a bully who takes his video camera on an ideological “drive by” to Chick-fil-A because he knows he’ll get his clock cleaned in the appropriate forums for debate.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you know that liberal activists weirdly tried to politicize the fast food industry, using the personal opinions of Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy as a pretext for bullying men and women of faith — particularly Christian men and women. (Islam is off limits to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and his Boston buddy Mayor Thomas Menino.)

When I don’t like a company or a product I simply don’t shop there. I have a job and a life and generally think it’s weird to be wondering how the president of Olive Garden feels about partial birth abortion. What I would never do is what Adam M. Smith did to a poor young woman working the window at a Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, which was to harass her and berate her in a way that solidifies his position as a Grade A loser. Apparently his bosses thought so too, because he was fired when evidence of the clip went viral (the original post was taken down).

What kind of jerk berates a cashier who simply wants to give a guy a free glass of water? He even ended with “I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here.” Perhaps I should see if the CEO of Taco Bell is an Obama supporter — and by extension in favor of his Terror Tuesday assassination meetings, which would then give me the cover to harangue some poor teenager with acne. Or not, because I’m not a jerk.

Question: Is the union of a man and a woman, in which it is generally assumed that children will follow and that they will be raised in a loving home by their biological parents, something special? Is that a bond that deserves to have a unique institution carved out for itself within society? Is that an ideal that should be held up and cherished for the role it plays in creating a healthy, vibrant civilization? That is a very worthwhile debate, but it is harder and harder to have because of men like Adam M. Smith, bullies who literally “drive by” with hateful rants disguised as a call for tolerance. He is Chris Matthews without the MSNBC contract.

Before he was fired, Adam M. Smith was a CFO. He was a CFO who chose to ambush a young woman with a video camera. He peppered her with questions and insults, knowing full well that she wasn’t the appropriate target for his rage and that the drive-through window wasn’t the appropriate forum for a debate. His victim handled herself with poise and grace. She killed him with kindness, and in a few short minutes the ugly left told us everything we needed to know about it.

Bravo to this young woman for handling herself like a true professional. Take notes, Adam. Maybe you can use them during your next job interview.

Here is Adam M. Smith’s victim, a young lady behind the counter of Chick-fil-A who handled herself with grace and poise when ambushed by the ideological bully.

  1. The International Association of Douche Nozzelists (IADE) may be contacting you via their lawyers, Douchebag, Airephart, and Howe over your slanderous allegations.

  2. Just like George Orwell predicted in his Novel “1984” “Love is Hate & Hate is Love” to these progressive secular groups.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Big Al. Yes, it does seem like we’re living in the Twilight Zone more and more often these days. Although, the way that guys like Rahm Emmanuel were shot down for their attacks on free speech was inspiring.

  3. If it were me having to deal with a total douchebag like Smith, I’d be strongly tempted to punch him. I know what it’s like to deal with rude customers, having worked a fast food joint for three years, and there are several instances where I wanted to punch them (like the dude who called me a “punk” and challenged me to a fight0, but didn’t. In Smith’s case, I’d probably make an exception.

    I think it’s bizarre that people would go apes*** because of Dan Cathy’s political views. He’s entitled to his views on marriage, views that many Americans share. If you don’t like it, don’t go. That’s the beauty of this country. Freedom of choice, such as choosing what you eat and where you eat it. When I go to a restaraunt, I’m focused on eating, not its CEO’s political views. When this so-called “controversy” originally happened, all it did was make me want to eat Chick-fil-A’s food, and I intend to soon because a few recently opened up in my area.
