Chick-fil-A pulled from another airport a week after backlash in Texas. Fascist abuse of power starting to scare people.

A week after Texas officials banned Chick-fil-A from the San Antonio International Airport over its allegedly “anti-LGBTQ behavior,” public authorities in New York scrapped plans to construct a Chick-fil-A at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport over its allegedly “anti-LGBTQ rhetoric.”

The drama began to unfold in New York last Thursday when the hospitality management company Delaware North and the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority approved a plan to set up a Chick-fil-A at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, according to Fox News.

When far-left state assemblyman Sean Ryan learned of these plans, he took to Facebook to issue a nearly 300-word-long rant accusing Chick-fil-A of peddling “divisive anti-LGBTQ rhetoric.”

“Chick-fil-A has a long history of supporting and funding anti-LGBTQ organizations. … As a state entity, the NFTA has a responsibility to avoid doing business with corporations who fund hateful and divisive groups. I strongly urge the NFTA to reverse this decision,” he wrote.

As a Christian organization, the popular food chain donates to Christian non-profits such as the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home.

“I don’t believe the leadership of the NFTA intends to help spread hate and discrimination, but allowing a corporation like Chick-fil-A to do business at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will help to fund continued divisive anti-LGBTQ rhetoric,” Ryan’s rant concluded.

He added that “[t]he views of Chick-fil-A do not represent our state or the Western New York community.” Apparently, the views of Christians don’t represent New York. Good to know …

Less than 24 hours later, NFTA capitulated to Ryan’s “brownshirt” demands and scrapped its plans.

“Earlier today I spoke with the vendor of the Buffalo Airport food court project, and they informed me they will not be opening a Chick-fil-A as a part of their airport project,” the far-left legislator revealed in a statement Friday.

“A publicly financed facility like the Buffalo Niagara International Airport is not the appropriate venue for a Chick-fil-A restaurant. I applaud the decision that has been made to remove Chick-fil-A from the plans for this project.”

He concluded his stunning statement by demanding that NFTA not screw up again.



In a statement to Buffalo station WKBW, a rep for Chick-fil-A pushed back against Ryan’s smears.

“Recent coverage about Chick-fil-A continues to drive an inaccurate narrative about our brand. We do not have a political or social agenda or discriminate against any group. More than 145,000 people from different backgrounds and beliefs represent the Chick-fil-A brand. We embrace all people, regardless of religion, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.”

Backlash over the NFTA’s last-minute decision is already beginning to brew, though it’s not being directed at the authority but rather at Ryan, who’s being pummeled on social media for being a “bully,” a “brownshit” and even a veritable “Nazi.”


For years members of the far-left have accused conservative Christians of being bigots. Following the election of President Donald Trump to office three years ago, they added “deplorables” and “fascists” to their list of derogatory labels.

Yet time and time again, members of the far-left have been caught behaving in those ways befitting actual bigots, fascists and deplorables. They’ve repeatedly harassed, assaulted and tried to silence everybody from Trump administration officials to everyday Trump supporters.

And now, lo and behold, they’re actively championing the discrimination of Christians, and all in the name of alleged love, tolerance and anti-discrimination.
