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.
When a Chick-Fil-A BOYCOTT backfires… Plan B is to call in a bomb threat. It happened today at 1:00p in Martinsburg, WV. #teamchickfila…

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.
Gee, Brian Ross, who would possibly call a bomb threat into a chick-fil-a today of all days?

Chick-fil-A deemed safe after bomb threat: http://t.co/FQRWUDED If this was a place being boycotted by the Tea Party, it'd be national news.

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.
