Get “woke.” Go broke.
Do you ever wonder what happens to someone after they self-destruct on national television or social media? We always see the explosion, but rarely the tragic consequences of their poor decision.
Remember Adam Smith?
He was the CFO of Vante, Inc. who decided to record his visit to the Chick-Fil-A drive-through window for a free cup of water, during which he tried to shame the female employee serving him for “working for a horrible corporation with horrible values” because Chick-Fil-A’s owners, the Cathy family, are devout Christians who support traditional marriage. Smith openly admitted that the only reason he had visited the restaurant was because the business would incur an expense for serving him and he wanted to hurt the company because of a personal political stance.
How did that work out for him?
At last report, Smith claimed to be homeless and living on food stamps after he was fired from his job making $200k per year and lost a million dollars in stock options after massive public backlash threatened his employer’s revenue stream. Smith wanted to hurt Chick-Fil-A, but ended up hurting himself and his own family. He wrote a book about the experience titled Million Dollar Cup of Water. At his personal website, Smith divides the story of his life into a five-part series, with the infamous Chick-Fil-A protest and gay rights being the last two segments.
It would be easy to feel sorry for Smith, except for two reasons I’ll talk about in a moment. After all, in two minutes the guy literally destroyed his own life, as he had known it. Not only was Smith fired from his job at Vante, he was also terminated at his next job when that employer realized Smith was the infamous “star” of the Chick-Fil-A video. It seems roughly the equivalent of kicking a man when he’s already down.
Yeah, fuck that “sympathy” noise. The obnoxious douchebag got exactly what he deserved; he brought his troubles on himself, and he’d happily do the same and worse to each and every one of us who dared to disagree with him if he ever got the chance. He can damned well stay homeless until he starves or freezes to death for all me. And if that complete lack of sympathy amounts to kicking him when he’s down, well, I’d be happy to kick him as many times as it takes to ensure he doesn’t ever get up again.
Until sane people are willing to see to it that the unacceptable behavior of our supposedly more evolved and enlightened adversaries carries a hefty price tag, we’ll go right on being harrassed, hectored, lectured, threatened, beaten, and shot by them. Stupidity should be painful; liberal-fascism, on the other hand, MUST be.
Just another story that makes a fella want to go out and get himself some more of that good ol’ Hate Chicken™, don’t it?
