All right, more information than is usually shared in a routine transfer of chicken, but okay. Duly noted.

26 I think maybe, appearances and mannerisms notwithstanding, Adam Smith may in fact be heterosexual as he represents himself to be.

31 #17 It's obvious from the self-righteous rant he gives before reaching the window to get his water that yes, he IS that lacking in self-awareness.

Like Greg Sargeant was saying early today on Twitter, "Oh is everybody still talking about Chick-Fil-A? Uhm....why?"

They have no fucking clue how many normal Americans view their tactics and this latest fascistic episode of their PC BS.

Lackoff strategy has so brainwashed them I'm beginning to suspect they have conditioned themselves to short-circuit their own thinking processes in order to avoid 'thoughtcrime'. This is why they can't grasp that over 80% of the country doesn't accept their agenda of driving opposition to SSM out of the public square.

They pretend the debate is already over, and anybody who PUBLICLY questions the OFFICIAL VIEW is a heretic and so everybody SHOULD go all 'burn the withc!!' on the heretics ass.

Only they keep being SURPRISE again and again when the mobs with the pitchforks not only don't materialize, they vote and act in a way in direct CONTRADICTION to what they assholes expected.

And they'll never figure it out. They are something like 0-32 on SSM when it's put to the voters in the states, but they press on acting like they've ALREADY WON and anybody who publicly dissents is committing a terrible social faux pas.

He "feels purposeful" after doing that? WTF is his normal routine; crying about how he never lived up to the expectations his parents gave him by telling him he was special and an unique unicorn? Letting the tears act as lubrication when the thought of another man's ass shot thru his head.

Honestly, what an immense waste of time. To accomplish nothing but make a sweet looking girl who is just trying to earn some money feel uncomfortable.

Couple of observations of that video:
The leftys are engaging in a war on women. (Look at how that man badgered and bullied that poor girl)
The leftys hate the little people--here you have a girl making mininum wage being verbally abused by a corporate hack, someone who is obviously in the top 10% if not even higher taking a 99 percenter to task.
So you have a leftard engaging in classic patriarchal bullying and reverse class warfare.

They intentionally forget Progs only make up around 15-20% of the population. They are then constantly surprised and shocked when they cross some real big line like this one on Free Speech/Freedom of Association and discover over 1/2 the country most manifestly does NOT buy their BS.

Maybe he'll say he was HACKED like Wiener did.

A non-apology would indeed be worse than hiding in an abandoned sewer for six months.

Pulling off a sincere apology is basically this dude's only chance, since he isn't a Democrat politician.

Nothing I can do if he doesn't get that.

I told Star Wars Kid how to make good on that video. Did he listen? NOOOOO, he went into hiding and only now is he trying to make good on it.

All he had to do is hold a press conference and say "yeah, that was pretty embarrassing," laugh a little, and he would have ruled the effing prom.

Great. So now the left destroys "Adam Smith", too.

You can beat back a few, but these people are little jihadis running through society, attacking everything familiar and trying to turn it to shit until there's nothing left but chaos. They want everyone to experience the hell that is their demented personalities.

You can't do anything about irreparable damage. At those times you have to totally start over. You can't totally ignore the Constitution and make a mockery of it and then turn around one day and say, "But, from now on we'll really, really adhere to the Constitution." It just doesn't work.

We've allowed that irreparable damage to be done. Shit, we have "taxation" on inactivity, now ... and people actually tried to defend it as being "normal" and "reasonable" in view of what we always treated taxes as.

The point at which skyscrapers are classified as chairs because it's argued that a person can sit on them is when the damage is too extensive to fix.

Unless ... of course ... those who did the damage are put in jail. I doubt Barky and his junta are going to get any of that. I doubt the Benedick Roberts will be impeached (as he really must be). Without taking action like that, to show some respect for what should be the law and reason, there's nothing to "clean up".

281 let's keep some perspective here. He didn't use abusive language and he wasn't particularly rude to the girl. (I think this is mostly because she disarmed him by being sweet, but still.)

His chief sin is being an ineffectual preening self-satisfied douchebag of the liberal persuasion.

It's not that it's such a big deal to talk about beating him up (I know it's just internet-talk and etc.) but it does seem to be out of proportion to his sin.

His sin is total un-self-aware douchebaggery and Aggravated Thinking He's Cute. If we could make the left ALL like this, we should jump at the chance, because he's such a dullard he doesn't realize how useless he is.

Just saying, let's keep a sense of perspective. If the crime is a 3 let's keep the response at around a 3.

In fact, I only learned this morning of the coordinated effort to support Chick-Fil-A. On my way home, I planned to grab a delicious #4 for dinner, but the parking lot was packed and the road going past Chick-Fil-A was backed up. This is in Northern Virginia (springfield to be exact). Needless to say, although I didn't contribute today, I'll definitely get dinner there tonight.

It's not what he did, himself, but what he was attempting to aid and abet - the crimes of Rahmbo and Moreno and the rest of the Left - which was far beyond anything minor. In his own mind he was aiding and abetting an 11.

293 As much as I obviously think that Chick-Fil-A deserves our support, I am discouraged by the fact that Rahm et al. sleep tight with no concern for their jobs (i.e., their positions of trust). They should have been run out of town by now for their threats against Cathy. Tyrants, the lot of them.

Indeed, I want the entire political class to be on notice that they are living on borrowed time. With too few exceptions (Ryan, DeMint, Rand Paul, Rubio), I am disgusted with our representative class. The fact that Orrin Hatch survived his primary challenge disgusts me. I want them to wake up every day in fear for their jobs and know that shit just got real. I am angry with the lack of leadership/action in the Republican party and pray that Cruz's victory and the Chick-Fil-A backlash is indicative of what will happen in November.

This really is their last chance. I just hope they realize it in time.

dude you seen YouTube lately? It's all crap like this.

now as far as a "personality disorder," well that's kind of vague, but in a general way, sure. Obviously he's a conceited guy (for no good reason) and very arrogant and he's got a real moral blindness -- but then, people like him are usually morally blind, because the bright light of their own FUCKING HALOS sort of blinds them from everything else.

He's a class A dickbag don't get me wrong.

but he didn't threaten the girl, and he didn't even get rough with her. Because she was sweetly disarming (and probably only because of that) he was almost unable to properly deliver his sermon. He only managed it at the end as he was leaving and realized his INTERNET STARDOM was escaping him.

That would be narcissism which isn't the same thing. Psychopathy includes a callous disregard for others: misguided or not, his motivation for his embarrassingly-lame protest was what he saw as mistreatment of his fellow humans ... and even humans that are *different* than him. Further, he was not wantonly cruel to the woman.

No way he's a psychopath -- and I just posted a YouTube video skewering him with my description and tags, but I won't libel the guy with nonsense.
http://youtu.be/BrssD2QLWo0

He was clutzy as hell, full of himself, absurd, but friendly enough for a protester. He took a glass of water, legally, that was offered to him, and even explained why he did so (to totally the wrong person). He didn't throw a brick through a window.

Some perspective, please.

304 Ace, I respectfully disagree with you. The guy was incredibly rude to this girl (especially when he yelled at her "How can you sleep at night when you work here?"

She was obviously flustered by his repeated harassment and nastiness. He was in a position of power (the customer is always right), he was older than her, a man, and a total bully.

You beter believe that if she would have gotten defensive or responded in kind, she would have lost her job. How is goading someone while hoping they react poorly to you and documenting it not bullying? If she would have lost her job, how many other unskilled jobs would been around to replace it?

I understand you don't want people to over react and have some perspective here. I do think this guy was hoping to capture some really bad response on her part so he could use it to smear Chick-Fil-A even more.

312 Finally, I would like to note that the fine young woman in this video is representative of every Chick-Fil-A employee I have ever encountered. Whoever is in charge of the hiring practice at that restaurant should be recognized.

For example, I ran into the local chick-fil-a here in springfield virginia a couple of weeks ago in the middle of a rainstorm. I was getting take out to feed the family. A very courteous young man was at the front door with an umbrella. He met me half-way and held the umbrella over me as I approached the door (he was drenched). As I left with my food, he followed me all the way to my car, holding his umbrella over me and my food. What service! As I got inside the car, and even before I expressed my appreciation, he thanked me for my business. Unbelievable in this day and age if you ask me.

Bottom line: Outstanding service and food is the norm at Chick-Fil-A.

I'm certainly not the one to say. And though the requirements for conduct of someone in the Service differ significantly from those of civilians of course, my example was just to demonstrate how little in comparison is asked of US everyday folks.

320 He even said that she's too good to be there.

Look, I don't share his dislike of Chick-fil-A (even though I couldn't care less what gays do: I'm a libertarian; by the same token, the owners of Chick-fil-A can believe what they want provided that includes tasty sandwiches and, in a perfect world, cute friendly staff). But he had a moral issue with the owners standpoint and he had a right to. I don't agree with his fleecing them for a dime's worth of water and cup, and a dollar's worth of staff and benefits time, but meh. He didn't break any laws. First amendment. And clearly Chick-fil-A did all right that day anyway.

He WAS expressing his disapproval of the girl's employment choices *as you would expect a protester to*, but he didn't do it in an intimidating, dangerous, violent way. A guy's got a right to say he disapproves of a company.

He did so reluctantly at the end because he obviously liked her sweet disposition (and I don't blame him; I did too). If you couldn't see that he did, you're blind.

In this situation yes. But I don't doubt for a second that if he had had any power at all over this girl or anyone else with 'incorrect' views, he would use it to abuse them. And consider himself to be a decent, ethical, compassionate person the entire time while doing it.

I looked up "psychopathy" in 2 dictionaries; both gave 2 definitions, including as I used it (sociopathy in essence) and also as you used it (any mental disease). So Ace and I are saying that he's not a sociopath, not that he's A'OK in every mental respect.

The last thing in the *world* I want to see is this douche getting victimized and muddying the water.

In fact, as I pointed out above, I'd like to see him offer a sincere apology for his behavior and exit gracefully.

I doubt that will happen, so internet douchebag meme is my second preference.

If someone threatened him above, I apologize for not calling that person a douchebag, because that's a douchebag move that is almost like an attempt to make Douchebag Numero Uno of the thread look better in comparison.

339 If she had thrown the water in his smug fucking face, he still would have posted it to YouTube plus he would have played the victim and maybe filed a lawsuit. This was all about trolling an innocent low-wage employee in an effort to generate a response in order to harm a Christian company. She didn't give him the response he was no doubt looking for, but that doesn't change the fact that his intention was to get more of a reaction in order to hurt Chick-fil-A and give them negative publicity.

He probably does actually have (somewhat - not that much) above average IQ --- but very little social, self, and situational awareness.

The fact that he not only did this, but later uploaded it ... in a "purposeful" way ... shows us that.

Lots of lower-IQ folks would have realized they wouldn't want to memorialize the time they flubbed telling some chick they're hetero and don't have any "gay" in them isn't wise, not to mention showing the world you're a skinflint getting a free cup of water as if this is some big accomplishment.

But actual low-IQ? Nah. I doubt it.

maybe this is one of those times tone doesn't come through on the internet. because while I certainly agree with ragging the living shit out of him and mocking him for the arrogant asshole he is, maybe other people are ALSO speaking in that tone, but it sounds "angrier" to me that it's meant, and I'm just mistaking the tone.

it could just be that. this really isn't a huge deal, and I'm not super-worried, and I'm not reading anyone the riot act as I did with the BK situation.

*****************************************

True enough, butthe video pretty well sums up this whole kerfuffle. Ajerk who, at no risk to himself (or so he tought), bullies an innocent bystander for the sin of working for a place whose owner holds a view with which he disagrees. She was just doing her job, not hurting anyone at all,and he thought that it would be an "activist" (as he tagged the video) thing to go drive up and yell at someone who couldn't possibly defend themself. And then he thought he would look cool if he posted it online. He thought that he was the noble one in the video!

He was simply practicing a lefty tactic but didn't have the sense to abstract his enemy as "the 1%" or "H8ters" or "Tea Baggers." He personalized the attack and showed it for what it was. Bullying. Bullying someone else for not agreeing with what you believe. Bullying them even when they're kind, generous and graceous back to you.

406 What a terrible human being. That poor girl was nothing but polite and nice, and he was such an evil nasty prick, how could he watch that video and then think to himself "right on! go me, I cannot wait for the world to see what super awesome progressive white man can do when he is motivated!" then post that video to the public.

The fact that he actually posted that video himself does prove that he pretty much intended to come off like a total asshole and tell the evil corporate shill just what he thinks of her evil company. I mean she probably is making millions on millions of dollars as managing director of drive-up window breakfast shift operations at store #5708. She is clearly the hand guiding the entire chic-filet conglomerate through the corporate jungle. Who else could he possibly take his complaints too. You cannot go higher than drive-window part time shift worker trying to make some extra money.

What a douche.

407 Oh and that girl just became famous, in a good way, because of that fucking simpleton's video (btw, was Johnny Widestance breaking any law by posting a vid of somebody he filmed without her permission?).

409 This does bring to mind a saying a boss told me many years ago after she saw some nasty things I said about her (in anger) in an email to a co-worker.

"Don't write down anything you would not want to see in the paper the next day."

Maybe nowdays we should update that a bit too :"Do not record anything on your cell phone you would not want to see on fox news the next day"

Posted by: gigg423 at August 02, 2012 08:41 AM (41VCE)

410 I emailed his boss and suggested that he track down the sweet and very capable young lady in the video, and hire her in Adam Smith's place.

Posted by: mama winger at August 02, 2012 08:44 AM (P6QsQ)

411 I bet he is a super awesome guy to work with!

Imagine the joy of sitting in the lunch-room about to tuck into a tuna sandwich and he sits next to you and starts bitching about hateful republicans trying to kill all gay people, and the war in Iraq, or whatever he happens to be bitching about that day. Oh that sounds like heaven!!!

Posted by: gigg423 at August 02, 2012 08:44 AM (41VCE)

412 I have to admit I would have been in his corner years ago. I used to be a liberal. Still am gay, but am conservative now. Hate what liberals are doing to this country. Have always hated cruelty and nastiness, which used to be directed at people like like me. Now, people like me are being cruel and nasty to others. What a glorious revolution the left has made! (That is sarcasm...)

Posted by: LobarPendulum at August 02, 2012 09:03 AM (z6KjF)

414 Grats Baldy, I'm a current gay myself. I used to have slightly liberal tendencies myself. I think I really turned my back on liberal queens after some gay guy decided to defecate on the steps of a Catholic church during a pride event. That is simply not something anyone should be proud of. Seeing how some of my "friends" at the time reacted to it was also very telling to me about the company I was keeping.

Posted by: gigg423 at August 02, 2012 09:04 AM (41VCE)

415 And another thing, why would he even say "I'm not gay"? Is that insulting or something?

418 By the way, my favorite gay president just increased taxes on the medical devices that my company, Vante, makes.

As CFO, I have unilaterally decided to pass those costs on to all those hateful chik-fil-a customers.

421 Q: What hate groups does Chick-Fil-A donate to?

I keep seeing this repeated, but it's always just generic 'hate groups'. If I know someone is doing something like donating to the KKK or NeoNazis, I'm not going to say 'hate groups' - I'm going to say 'KKK' or 'NeoNazis'.

I can't possibly fathom why they don't name names...

Hey guys! You have to see this awesome thing I did yesterday...

http://youtu.be/thNqs9fPcgM

Man, am I just the coolest, most prolific dude out there or what? You sales guys don't have the balls I do. I got in that teenager's FACE and told her off BIG TIME! Yeah!

Why don't you guys from sales come by my office for lunch? We'll drive over to the high school and steal all the kids lunch money then go to chicfila and make them give us all free water and we'll be so AWESOME!

You know where my office is, I'm sure. My door is always open so you can come in and revel in my awesomeness. I have the video running constantly on my computer screen in high def so you can see my courage in 1080p as I tell off that minimum wage pleeb!

Let's go over there and tell her off again. This time we'll gang up on her and make her cry, all in the name of social justice and unfettered anal copulation for all!

433 I'll give him credit for one (and only one) thing. When he said there's no gay in me, I think he was about to say, "There's not a gay bone in my body," but he realized that's not a great comment and changed it on the fly, so he's sorta quick. The rest of him is full of douchebag.

438 Let me get this straight (ha!), the point of his exercise of asking for a free water was to eat into the profits of CFA. So he spent however much gas driving to, idling in the drive-thru line, and then driving away. Plus the value of his time (admittedly not much). Let's say he spent2 bucks plus his time to impose a cost of at most a few pennies upon CFA. Gee, I wonder who'll win this war of attrition. And this guy is the Chief Financial Officer of some corporation? He should be fired just for that level of incompetent reasoning.

Just sent this email to Vente:

Dear Sirs,





Having just seen the video posted by your CFO I have ths question:





Does Vente require some sort of political litmus test for its customers?
Does Vente refuse to sell its products to Islamic countries, who are nototious for imposing the death penalty on homosexual behavior? Does Vente refuse
to sell its products to Catholic organizations?





In light of the views stated by Adam Smith, your CFO, I would like to
know.

Posted by: vivi at August 02, 2012 10:45 AM (OTPxW)

441 It is unfortunate that Mr. Smith brought this upon himself. He appears to hold responsible positions in his community. However, his company is a signatory to a letter, regarding another issue but which clearly states how harmful boycotts are to Arizona businesses. As CFO one could reasonably assume would hold these views as well. Apparently not.

470 @467 That is a good point, as an officer, he is listed as a principle for his company in a very public manner. In taking his good fight to the internet he had to expect that maybe, just MAYBE this might come back to him and the company he works for.

480 So he gets in his car, drives to Chick-fil-A, gets a free water, drives home; and congratulates himself on how much he "cost" the corporation.

Hey dude, the TEN DOLLARS YOU SPENT ON GAS probably outweighs the TEN CENTS it cost for the cup and water.

But if you're willing to destroy $10 of your money to take $0.10 from someone you dislike I guess you've got more interest in your hate than in your self.

Maybe if you destroyed everything you own and went into debt you could outweigh a small part of the record profits they made yesterday at this ratio.. that's be worth it right? Destroy your financial situation to slightly inconvenience a chain store?

Good plan, good plan.

Posted by: gekkobear at August 02, 2012 01:38 PM (X0NX1)

481 I'm comfortable with re-posting the video and talking about it because he made himself a limited special-purposes public person by protesting publicly in the first place.

However.

What's with all this calling him and his employer stuff? That's way creepier than anything he did.

I get your point, and it's a good one. If there was a way to stick it to the CFO alone, I'd agree. But I don't know how I feel about willingly harming the interests of a medical supply company.

That said, the CFO of it should have thought of that before he intentionally set out to damage the finances of another company. The *CEO* of Vante should consider the CFO's actions in that context.

494 Y'know, I get that we're all having a good laugh at this guy's expense and basking in the delicious Schadenfreude of it all, and really, who wouldn't? It's human nature to enjoy it when one of your opponents beclowns themselves...But consider what we know of this guy's background and actions, leaving the finance field to "find himself", the obvious narcissism, the longing to join in with a group of kids who "must be about to protest, it just makes sense" and thus be part of a greater good...this cat doesn't seem too stable to me. I bet this guy is utterly incapable of dealing with the shit tsunami that has undoubtedly engulfed his life right about now. I wouldn't be surprised if we find out in a day or so that he's had an accident with a rope and a rickety chair. Yea, he's a cum hat, but that would be tragic, self inflicted or not.

495 I could be my brother doing that. Picking up on some issue he really has no stake in, and making a scene by giving somebody a lecture. The issue is just a pretense. They just love telling other people what to do, and then pat themselves on the back for it because they're supposedly sticking up for something (when they've really taken no risk at all, and spent nothing,they've onlyharrassed some defenselessindividual who had the misfortune of being nearby).

It's a lot like the folks who love to do something inconsequential, and painless, for the sake of Mother Earth - so they can pat themselves on the back - but at least those guys usually aren't harassing somebody in the process.

Actually, I think my brother DID do something like that. Had some sort of FB post about "losing it" toward some people "proseletizing" at work. Expessed outrage at how dare they do this at a school (even though it wasjust office people talking amonst themselves) - when he has been critical of separation of church and state at schools (he's religious). Suddenly - when he need it to justify himself -a school has some sort of invisible barrier that is impervious to all religious speech.

But LO! You guy have paid far too little notice of the girl! Don't let that dowdy uniform and pony tail fool you. She's cute as hell, REALLY nice (only some of that could be training), and a red-head!! If I were a young single guy, I'd be dining there every chance I got, trying to make sure I got the right server...

497 I posted this on another site. I am an IBM retiree with 32 + years with a great company. I am disgusted that this classless jerk lists IBM as one of his previous employers. During my working years I attended countless EEO (Equal Opportunity Employment) lectures and seminars. This A ** hole apparently either never attended these mandatory work sessions or he is brain dead when it comes to the fair treatment of all individuals. He is a disgrace to the company he now works for, he is a disgrace to his previous employers and he is a disgrace to the University he teaches at.

498 You know what I got out of that video? The clerk that served this tool, Rachel I think he said her name was, was the most friendly, level headed, composed professional I have seen in a long time.

What is she doing working at the drive up window? Then again, she was the perfect person to deal with dick-heads like this. kudos to the manager for recognizing this.

If I were her I would take this video to my next job interview. I'd hire her in a second.

500 I was thinking of moving out of my liberal shithole state to a friendlier place (e.g. UT, ID, MT, AZ, TX...). With giant douchebags like Adam Smith, I think I will be crossing AZ off my list. I'd cross Vante Catheters off my list, but I don't need one...yet. Plus it looks like their website is down.

512 Well, as everyone has seen, bad behavior (recorded and uploaded to YouTube!) has consequences. Considering that Adam Smith, the man who made this protest video, was a Chief Financial Officer of Vante, Inc. (trademark of Engineering and Research Associates, Inc.), a medical supply manufacturer; some have asked were his actions appropriate for an officer of company?

We have the answer, at least from Vante's perspective.

I hope Mr. Smith learns from this episode how to behave more appropriately and professionally when making his political points. However, in his defense, I will say that he was not particularly angry nor violent when he made his protest, nor did he break any law. He has received consequences for his bad judgement and in my view, they are sufficient.

Posted by: Random at August 02, 2012 06:57 PM (u8eBQ)

513 nor did he break any law.

Posted by: Random at August 02, 2012 06:57 PM (u8eBQ)

I'm not sure what you call filming someone against their expressed permission, then uploading said video onto YouTube. Didn't Maryland want to go after James O'Keefe for his undercover recording, claiming is was against the law to record someone without their permission?

I know if somebody was trying to bait me, shot film of the attempted baiting, then, against my wishes, posted the interaction on YouTube, I'd call the police for unauthorized use of my image and sue that cockholster Smith for every penny he's got, even the pennies in his kids' piggy banks.

Posted by: RickZ at August 02, 2012 07:23 PM (26i79)

514 I keep thinking about the fact that this impressive young girl's video was posted in the middle of a political brawl for large numbers of hateful, moronic creeps like Smith (and other varieties of creeps) to see. If I were in her shoes, and all those potential crazies knew where I worked, I'd be pretty scared right now. I wouldn't be surprised if she has quit that job before the end of the week. And all she did was come in on her day off. Hope you guys are right about her prospects for employment.

Just sayin'.
