OK, the Chick-Fil-A issue is huge. It deals with a bedrock issues in our society: marriage and free speech. However, I ran across this self made video by a guy from Tucson, AZ named Adam Smith. Reportedly Smith is an adjunct lecturer at the University of Arizona and he though he would take Chick-Fil-A up on a free water. Yeah this sounds like a liberal doesn’t it? Anyways, he decides to video his pulling through drive through and simply attack the young lady Rachel who is serving him free water.
Honestly, this guy is so full of hate himself he can’t even see his own hypocrisy. Yet notice the love and gentleness that Rachel displays to him even though he is bad mouthing her company and even insults her. Apparently Mr. Smith removed the video, probably because of the numerous dislikes, but was again re-uploaded.
He claimed he was “excited about his free water.” OOOh yeah free water does sound exciting doesn’t it? He then pulls up and immediately begins to unload on the young lady at the drive-thru window.
He asks the girl, Rachel, “Do you know why I’m getting my free water? Because Chick-Fil-A is a hateful corporation.”
“I disagree. We don’t treat any of our customers differently” she responds.
“I know, but the entire corporation sends money to hate groups. Just because people want to kiss another guy. I don’t believe corporations should be giving money to hate groups.”
As Rachel responds with “It’s my pleasure to serve you always,” this jerk says, “I’ll take my water. I’m glad that I can take a little bit of money from Chick-Fil-A and maybe less money to hate groups.”
She tries to say that they are happy to serve everyone, but Mr. Smith (yes, I am biting my tongue as to what to refer to this guy as) interrupts stating, “I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here. I don’t understand that. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values. You deserve better.”
While she wished him a “really nice day” he said he felt like “he did some thing good and felt purposeful.”
Well yes Adam, you made yourself look like a total ass and I’m just going to promote your asinine response for the world to see that the true hater is you Sir. It is not Chick-Fil-A who promote the values of family, hard work and ethics that are applauded all over the world. In fact, you were served courteously and I might add for free even though you are one of the biggest jerks on the face of the planet.
I’ll tell you what, though I support free speech, had Rachel been one of my daughters, I would be finding this guy and giving him a piece of my…..mind:) The fact that this fellow could be an adjunct lecturer at a University is disgusting. Maybe some people want to complain to the institution and demand his resignation for his hate filled comments to someone he doesn’t even know about something he is not even mature enough to discuss.
While he claims that the fast food restaurant gives to hate groups, he then goes on to ask Rachel how she can live with herself and work there. I’m just helping promote how big of an ass Adam M. Smith is and people like him that show absolutely no shame in attacking someone who serves them with a smile.
In all of this, what I see displayed in Rachel is exactly what I have seen every single time I have been to a Chick-Fil-A since I was little. She was courteous and as always claims, “It’s my pleasure to serve you.” So I ask you America, would you rather be ruled by the “Homosexual Hate Groups” like the one Mr. Adam M. Smith is a part of or would you rather be in a world filled with wonderful courteous people with a servant’s heart like Rachel? Seems to me the choice is clear.
By the way, from now on, I will be using the phrase “Homosexual Hate Groups” to speak of anyone who gives this type of rhetoric. I suggest you do the same. Let’s redefine them, the way they have tried to redefine words and us for years.
Once you watch the video, compare Adam M. Smith to Bruce, who is an openly homosexual man, and his interaction with Chick-Fil-A. Finally, a big kudos to Rachel! Well done young lady, well done!
UPDATE: One of our commenters, jimpeel, informed us of Mr. Smith’s removal from his job for this incident. I’m wondering if Mr. Smith is feeling excited now? One thing for sure, there is nothing keeping him from kissing his boyfriend on Friday. Here’s the update from the company he WORKED for. At least they have a bit of class. Oh and Mr. Smith? It seems Vante deserves better too, which is why they kicked you to the curb.
Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO
Employee Has Left the Company
TUCSON, AZ–(Marketwire – Aug 2, 2012) – The following is a statement from Vante:
Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante and its employees.
I’m wondering now if the Gaystapo will be holding a “kiss in” at Vante. After all, Smith lost his job supporting “their cause.” Personaly, I think Smith protested a bit much. What heterosexual would actually pull something like that?
UPDATE 2: Also, surprise surprise. I discovered it doesn’t look like Mr. Smith has his college gig anymore either. He once had a web page, but now that has gone bye-bye.
Here’s what the page use to look like:
Here’s what you get when you attempt to go there now:
See? There is justice and nothing cool about a guy berating a pleasant and friendly young woman for simply working hard to make a living. Maybe his parents should have taught him better. I’ll bet they are so ashamed of him.
UPDATE 3: The University of Arizona:
Adam Smith held an appointment as an Adjunct Lecturer, Finance (non-tenure eligible) in the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona from January 2, 2012, to May 20, 2012. He presently holds no appointment with the University.
The University of Arizona strives to provide an environment where a free and respectful exchange of ideas is valued and encouraged. We strive to have a workforce that is diverse and respectful of different viewpoints and where opinions are respected.
So Smith’s actions have no bearing on his college lecturing, but I’ll bet he’ll be hard pressed to get another gig like either of the ones he had now that he’s shown himself for what he really is: a hater.
