Bill de Blasio

Gutfeld on campus absurdity

Clapping has been banned at Britain’s University of Manchester Student Union because it triggers anxiety and discourages people from attending events. It will be replaced with a silent version of “jazz hands” – which is said to encourage an “environment of respect.” Meanwhile, a Massachusetts professor says that the label “veteran” should be expanded to include peace activists. I say the label “professor” should be expanded to include messy droolers. The one thing these things have in common, besides lunacy, is that they’ve both broken out of the asylum gates of the local university. The seed pods from that garden of stupid, are now blooming in the real world. Why is that? Because no one wants to say, “that’s really dumb.” We are all bullied to silence by the tyranny of grievance. Nobody wants to share the risk in calling out absurdity because that makes you a big meanie. Example: you’re on a subway and a maniac gets on board. He’s a babbling idiot. So everyone looks down at their phones. Why? Because no one wants to assume a piece of the risk. So they hide from the maniac. Then you realize the maniac is Bill de Blasio. Again. He’s screaming inanities. Your head aches. He won’t shut up. So now the joke’s on you. You should have complained the moment de Blasio got on. You should have said, ‘shut up and get out of here. You’re too loud and stupid for mass transit.’ Ideological excess spreads when everyone looks the other way. Whether it’s on campus, in congress, and in media. But maybe for once, let’s share the risk. It might be the only defense we have left.

Starnes: Poultry vs. Pinhead: New York City’s mayor says boycott Chick-fil-A

Mayor Bill de Blasio and members of the New York City Council are calling for a city-wide boycott of Chick-fil-A – urging citizens to refrain from eating plump juicy chicken breasts tucked between hot buttered buns. “I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them,” the mayor told DNAInfo.com. Councilman Daniel Dromm was even more blunt – accusing the Southern restaurant chain of spreading a “message of hate.” Chick-fil-A opened its first New York City restaurant in 2015 – followed by a second location in April. The mayor’s remarks came after it was announced a third restaurant would be opening in Queens – which happens to be the district represented by Councilman Dromm. So why does the mayor and the city council have a problem with Chick-fil-A – the unofficial chicken of Jesus? Well, Chick-fil-A is owned by a devoutly Christian family. Back in 2012 company president Dan Cathy ruffled feathers by telling a reporter that he believed marriage is between a man and a woman. And Sweet Lord Almighty, but the militant LGBT activists and leftwing lawmakers have been squawking ever since. “What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong,” said De Blasio, a de-facto Communist sympathizer who eats his pizza with a fork. So it’s not so much that de Blasio is anti-chicken as much as he is anti-Christian. Councilman Dromm, who founded the Queens Lesbian and Gay Pride Committee and organized the first Queens LGBT Pride Parade and Festival, deeply loathes Chick-fil-A. “This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love,” Dromm said in a statement. “It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations. Councilman Dromm is either ignorant or a liar – or perhaps both. “The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation and gender,” a spokesperson told DNAInfo. Chick-fil-A is not in the business of spreading hate. They are in the business of selling chicken and waffle fries and deliciously refreshing lemonade. And they do not have a policy that prohibits same-sex love. That’s a blatant lie. Chick-fil-A could care less whether birds of a feather flock together or not. Another item to consider: Chick-fil-A employs hundreds of New Yorkers – adding significant tax dollars to the city’s coffers. And that doesn’t even include the cash donations they’ve made to a number of NYC charities. But that doesn’t matter to people like Mayor de Blasio and Councilman Dromm. Full and complete compliance to the LGBT agenda is the only thing that matters – even if it means hundreds of New Yorkers lose their jobs. Perhaps the mayor and the city council should mind their own business and let Chick-fil-A mind theirs. Meanwhile, New Yorkers don’t seem all that interested in obeying the mayor’s boycott. As matter of fact, instead of eating less chicken – they’re eating more chicken! There was a lunchtime line that stretched around the block at the Chick-fil-A located a block away from the Fox News Corner of the World. Before I head over to Chick-fil-A for a snack, I wanted to make one more observation. It was last year – just after they had opened their inaugural store in Manhattan. I noticed that after two weeks of drinking all that sweet tea and eating fried food, New Yorkers seemed a bit more – how can I put this – a bit more pleasant – and easy going. Folks on the subway were even waving at each other – with all five fingers – instead of one. Now, that’s the power of the capital G — Gospel Bird. -Todd Starnes is host of Fox News & Commentary, heard on hundreds of radio stations.
