Most Pathetic Protest Ever

The AFA’s McDonalds boycott has started off with a resounding thud. Have you ever seen anything more sad?

Wow, less than three minutes long, and people start leaving. maybe she went to get a McHappy Meal.

Looks like they forgot to super-size their protest.

You know that big bear in the background likes to head to the local leather bar and crawl up in the sling when he’s not working the AFA front

I don’t think they have enough people to boycott one McDonald’s, let alone them all.

I can think of plenty of reasons not to eat McDonalds (or any fast food chain) but their “promotion” of homosexuality isn’t one of them. How empty those people’s lives must be…

McDonald’s Oak Brook headquarters is about 30 miles west of me.

I counted about 19 people, including the kids and 2 guys holding up their sign. Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic. These people are the laughing stock of Illinois.

Peter LaBarbera is going ballistic that the Chicago media ignored their pathetic photo-op.

I’ve seen nothing in local TV and print media.

As I’ve said here and in other blogs, the news media ignore this clown. They know he’s a freak, even when he’s with fellow nutcases.

On a side note: Matt Barber looks like someone I’d see at IML. If he only knew the vibes he’s emitting. He’s a big bear and probably doesn’t even know it. I wonder if he’s ever been to the Chicago Eagle or Touche’ ?

(Follow up to my own post …)

By the way, McDonalds has an 85 rating from the HRC CEI. The one item they’re missing is gender identity protections in their diversity policy.

Maybe it’s just me, but if I was going to boycott someone, wouldn’t it be someone who has a 100 rating?

Just a thought….

Two things I found interesting:

1. The woman that walked away in the middle of the protest. That was amusing.

2. When the man asked if people “hated” anyone, everyone gave an emphatic “No!” while Matt Barbera barely nodded his head. Then, when the man asked if the people loved their country and loved the Lord, and everyone said “Yes!”, Matt didn’t even react. That’s pretty telling.

We should boycott sunlight, it shines on gay people.

They should boycott the oxygen they have to share with us.

I love the rhetoric….

“the gay agenda… to destroy traditional marriage….”

Does anyone out there notice that heterosexual people are the ones destroying traditional marriage. They don’t need help from anyone.
