Last summer, during the absurd Chick-fil-A boycott, my teenage son Jefferson coined the word “homophobolicious” to describe the yummy sandwiches. Now the unspeakable terror inspired by The Flavor of Hate™ has spread to the University of New Mexico campus:
A group of liberal students at the University of New Mexico tried their best to get Chick-fil-A kicked off campus because they claimed the eatery made them feel “unsafe.” . . .
Gay students claimed that they even felt threatened by the mere sight of students and faculty carrying bags with the Chick-fil-A logo on them.
“Students started expressing to me they felt unsafe to go into their own campus union building,” Sen. Miquela Ortiz of the Associated Students of UNM said. “When they said they felt uncomfortable on campus, I felt it was an issue that I should bring up.”
“Please look at this from a moral standpoint,” said Brittany Arneson, a student against having Chick-fil-A on campus. “Look at the kids that are here that are telling you, ‘I do not feel safe on this campus anymore.’”
We could afford to laugh at this hysteria, were it not for the fact that left-wing hype about “hate” inspires dangerous lunatics to think it’s OK to murder ”homophobes.” Fanatical propagandists who claim to see terrorism in a Chick-fil-A logo are ultimately responsible for the deranged gunman who wanted to kill Anna Maria Hoffman.
