In the event you have been under a rock these past few years and had no idea how radically left the New Yorker Magazine now is, please allow the liberal publication to enlighten you.
The New Yorker ran an article detailing the “creepy infiltration” of the Big Apple by Chick-fil-A restaurants, now that there are FOUR in the city.
One of the four being the largest in the world — potentially an answer to Mayor Bill de Blasio calling for a boycott of Chick-fil-A back in 2016 because of the company’s Christian values.

Why the bitter stance from New Yorker? Because of the fast-food restaurant chains’ “pervasive Christian traditionalism,” as the magazine tweeted.
Chick-fil-A’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. https://t.co/wnhMrMBN6z

And while it’s safe to say that the author of the piece, Dan Piepenbring, struggles to find even a single thing he likes about the eatery, the American people have a whole other view, as Fox News reported that Chick-fil-A is on pace to become the nation’s third largest fast food chain within two years.
But the anti-Christian stance taken by New Yorker is still remarkable in that they have no qualms about publicly declaring such bigotry.
While a complicit media is not likely to bat an eye, social media wasn’t about to allow the display of hate go unchallenged.
Of all the responses, and there are plenty, perhaps the best came from a user who tweeted: “Going to be funny when The New Yorker employees start sneaking in their delicious food…wonder if they will be fired…they should do an article on why Chick-fil-a is rated at the top for food quality & customer service…might learn something from those ‘creepy’ Christians.”

The responses on Twitter, to include some of the biggest names on the right, was epic. And rightfully so, given the “creepy” nature of the magazine’s display of hate.
I've never eaten Chick-fil-A in my life and I disagree with the anti-gay marriage stance of the company's owners. But this is bigotry. The New Yorker would never use the word "infiltration" to describe newcomers of any other religion. https://t.co/NuyRYLFmQe

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
But, keep your pervasive Christian traditionalism out of New York City https://t.co/OLpRvyAnJS

NOBODY expects the Chick-fil-A. Their chief weapon is waffle fries! https://t.co/d1ykIs0d6H

More than one astutely noted that unhinged behavior such as this is what helped deliver President Donald Trump to the White House:

It's because of pieces like this that Trump won. https://t.co/TPAaPZ99MF
