Hitler: ‘My Main Goal of Supporting the German Community Outweighed the Collateral Damage to Poland …’

Posted on | August 4, 2012 | 13 Comments

This is a slight paraphrase of how the obnoxious a–hole justifies his bullying of a Chick-fil-A employee at a drive-through window:

Adam Smith berates a Chick-fil-A employee, got fired, and now has released a new video apologizing to Rachel, who was his drive-thru victim. He goes on about how she handled his rant with grace, patience, and apologizes for his actions. He wishes her the best of luck in her future endeavors.
Then…he explains why he went to Chcik-fil-A and went on a rampage. He says his “main goal of supporting the gay community outweighed the collateral damage that Rachel became” and admits that he only saw her in that aspect. He then details how we need to stop “rationalizing our destructive actions this way … we need to start seeing people as people.” He admits he failed his own test.

Watch the video at Legal Insurrection. Keep in mind that Smith only had this remorseful response after he shot video of himself hectoring Rachel and took the time to upload that video to YouTube, evidently expecting to bask in the admiring applause of his fellow liberals. It was only when the self-righteous bully failed to gain the anticipated admiration — and indeed, became an instant symbol of the bullying intolerance of the anti-Chick-fil-A boycotters — that Smith experienced remorse.

Smith first attempted to delete the video, only to discover the lack of an “unpublish” function on the Internet. After he was fired from his job, he now retroactively avows his “main goal of supporting the gay community,” as if this explains why a corporate executive with an MBA thought it would be a good idea to post a video of himself heckling a poor woman working at a fast-food drive through window.

Andy at AOSHQ says, “When something billed as an apology has a 7+ minute run time, you’re doing it wrong.”

Apologies for the Godwin’s Law violation in the headline, but the collateral damage to Adam Smith’s reputation was outweighed by my main goal of supporting the fast-food community.

    His apology was seven minutes long?  Dang I only saw 30 seconds of it and knew it was a self congratulatory whine.

     I kind of thought he should have ended it after 30 seconds. It would have made more sense and seemed more sincere.

    Yeah, but he was a vegetarian.  I doubt he ever ate at Chick-fil-A.  I, on the other hand, had breakfast there this morning.  It was pretty good!

    Now that he’s undergone his thought police moment of self examination, he’ll be rehired at the 8niversity with a large raise in pay in a tenure track Associate Professorship…as reward for doing his part to further the Liberal agenda.
