WATCH: Fox & Friends celebrates signing of new Texas anti-LGBT law by eating and defending Chick-fil-A

Published

on

The “Fox & Friends” crew celebrated Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the anti-LGBT “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law by eating and praising the chicken fast food and defending the Christian retailer by misrepresenting opposition to the bill and to the company.

The “Save Chick-fil-A” law now makes it illegal in Texas for the government to take “adverse action” against anyone or any entity for their “sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction, including beliefs or convictions regarding marriage.”

It was created in response to the San Antonio city council barring Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in its airport, based on the company’s multi-million dollar support of anti-LGBT organizations, including an anti-gay hate group.

But that’s not the story “Fox & Friends” told its viewers Wednesday morning.

“The area lawmakers said no” to Chick-fil-A opening in the San Antonio airport, co-host Ainsley Earhardt said, “because there’s some controversy with this restaurant, what their beliefs are on LGBT, so they voted no.”

(It’s not “LGBT.” It’s “LGBT people.”)

And the issue is not the company’s beliefs, but their massive multi-million dollar financial support of anti-LGBT organizations that discriminate against or work to harm LGBT people.

“Even if you disagree with the restaurant’s politics it doesn’t mean I’m necessarily not going to like their food,” Earhardt added as she began to eat the Chick-fil-A from the table.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade was more to the point.

“Every time you try to stop Chick-fil-A, you help Chick-fil-A.”

Published

on

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."

According to the man -- identified as Daniel and who was wearing a COVID-19 mask and a New York Yankees hat -- his brother was also murdered by police and the cops walked free.

"You've been marching all day," Hunter began. "Look, I have two questions for you: what was it like watching the U.S. this week from London? Does it resonate?

Denver cops busted for doing drive-by shootings of anti-police brutality protesters

Published

In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.

According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.

"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst. I made sure he had my number memorized so I could bail him out if I needed to and I sat up until he made it home, trying not to cry as he told me he had been tear-gassed."
