UPDATE 2: AND his editor's not too happy with him:
The comments made by reporter Mark Krzos on his personal Facebook page were completely inappropriate. They were done without the knowledge of The News-Press and violate our policies. When we became aware of the comments, we asked the reporter to remove them. We consider this a very serious matter and hurts our credibility and we will take strong and appropriate action.As the dust settles over Chik-Fil-A Appreciation day, the remarkable events of yesterday have resounded around the country.

The MSM and liberals just don't get it.
Exemplary of this is a sanctimonious "news reporter" who posted this on Facebook:
RE: Chik-Fil-A controversyI have never felt so alien in my own country as I did today while covering the restaurant's supporters. The level of hatred, unfounded fear and misinformed people was astoundingly sad. I can't even print some of the things people said.In the thread that follows his post, his followers goad him to tell the terrible things he heard the Chik-Fil-A'ers say while they were standing in line and their purpose for supporting Chik-Fil-A. The thread includes excoriations of Christians, mockery of standing in line for a "damn sandwich" and a complete lack of understanding of what that show of support was about.
Goaded, the "news reporter" said this:
You think "Fggt this" and "N-word" President that would fly? Not to mention that those who said those hateful things were -- excuse the pun -- TOO CHICKEN to give me their names when I asked for it.Suggestions to counter this outrageous behavior of thousands of people standing in line for chicken include this comment:
I suggest going into Chic Fil A buy a large coke, dump it on the floor, say oops and leave.Interestingly, not everyone you'd expect fell into the whole rathole created by the scoffers. Rapper Big Boi retweeted some Breitbart tweets about Chik-Fil-A to the shock of this followers.
Pictures from around the country are available here and here. Here's a CFA appreciation day MAP.
Of course, CFA set a world record yesterday for sales. Many restaurants ran out of food and had to close for the day. One location had a "bomb threat" called in that shut it down for 3 hours, which is the Left's typical way of dealing with ideas they do not like.
Actually Legal Insurrection has the best coverage. Go there.
It'd be nice if D.C. could figure out that the same people standing in line for CFA WILL be voting in November.
Americans like them their chikn....and their freedom of speech!
