Bomb threat shuts down Chick-fil-A in West Virginia

While most of the “no hate” crowd were satisfied wishing heart attacks or chokings on Chick-fil-A customers today, at least one person took his message of tolerance that extra step, calling in a bomb threat to a Chick-fil-A in Martinsburg, W. Va.

The threat came on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, an anti-boycott event launched by Gov. Mike Huckabee that resulted in packed restaurants and long lines at Chick-fil-A stores across the country.

The restaurant was closed for about three hours as Martinsburg city police and firefighters investigated after a caller claimed a “device” had been planted at the scene. That doesn’t sound very tolerant, does it?

Who would do such a hateful thing? Let’s bring in an expert, objective journalist to investigate.

Coincidentally, a bomb threat was made to the San Antonio International Airport today. Pro tip: you might want to be careful what you wish for… and what you tweet.

    I’m not surprised a bit.

    The last resort of the ignorant tyrants: shut people up permanently!

    ChikFilA expressing an opinion is “hate”, but threatening to bomb one of their restaurants is a “political statement”? #saywhat

    • Greg B.

      There is no proof that a bomb threat was made by an equality supporter.

  • Leon

    I don’t personally agree with ChikFilA’s opinion on #gaymarriage, but I respect their right to express it. Don’t like it? Don’t eat there. It’s not complicated.

    • Greg B.

      And if an American company was giving millions to organizations that promoted the execution of Christians in Africa I suppose you’d sit back and remain silent to avoid infringing on that company’s freedom of speech?

  • Scooter Livingston

    Considering the amount of sodium in the shit that they call “food” the person making the threat was performing a public service

      As long as I can remember I have never heard one person say they did not like Chik Fil-A so I must assume you have no rational or logical arguments and are just being a mean spirited brat.

      Just another nanny mayor wannabe.

      scooter, your mommy is calling you. She said you need to have your mouth washed out with soap to get it clean before you eat or speak again.

    All the hatred I see is coming from the Left and it appears the gay movement is in peril of becoming synonymous with bomb threats if this keeps up.

    No straight people/Republicans are boycotting, threatening or slandering gay people for being the ones who are actually trying to change the definition of marriage after it has stood the test of time for 5000 years.

    Insisting marriage means what it has always meant for 5000 years as defined in the Bible can hardly be called hate.

    Chick-fil-A doesn’t hate anybody and should sue anyone who says otherwise if it ever begins to affect their bottom line.

    The unbelievably intolerant Left owns the institutions of hatred, intolerance and egregious stupidity … that’s why they fill every prison in the country to the brim. Murder, threats, mischief and mayhem are the most common calling cards of the angry liberal.

    Even the Left’s political movement gave us over 3000 arrests while the Tea Party is full of saints and patriots and are examples for all.

    BTW – I hope they catch this sanctimonious loser/felon who called in this bomb threat and I hope he’s white because if he’s black then there’s no way he will ever be prosecuted by Holder’s “Justice Dept”.

    God help us!

      You have no proof that someone on the left made the bomb threat. Zero proof.

      • meru

        and you have no proof it wasn’t.

      • smartgranny55

        I am sure that it is not the left who is patronizing Chick-fil-A, and equally sure it is the left who is planning a “kiss-in”.

  • Paul J. Citro

    The left when they don’t get their way the mask falls off.

    • goblm15

      like a toddler

    • Greg B.

      You have no proof that someone on the left made the bomb threat.

      • Lyle E Long

        A friend called me and told me it was the left so it must me true. It’s now up to you to prove otherwise….Harry Reid

  • Randall Stokes

    Because the libral lefts firestorm and there stupid shit Chick-Fil-A bottom line rose a whopping 63million dollars in three days nation wide thanks lefty’s..

    • Greg B.

      Provide proof of your $63M claim please.

  • Doreen Beisel

    No shock

  • Greg B.

    You simply have no proof that the alleged bomb threat came from an equality activist. Given the rhetoric we’ve seen coming from right wing extremists in their desperate attempt to paint LGBT people as ruthless, violent, militant radicals and religionists as innocent victims, it’s far more likely to have come from an anti-gay zealot hell bent on trying to create that very fiction.

    • CrimsonCritter

      we don’t need proof. According to Harry Reid’s new legal precedent, it’s now the burden of the LGBT community to provide evidence they didn’t make the threat. we conservatives didn’t start this game but we damn well will now be playing it by the same rules as you people on the left. Welcome to your new “Eden”.

    • smartgranny55

      You have no proof that the bomb threat came from anyone who supports the right to free speech. To even suggest it did shows either total ignorance or hypocrisy. Right wing extremists? Who would that be? People who support what Cathys said? Chick-fil-A does not discriminate against homos either in serving or employment. Check the facts before you spew your hatred.
