As Twitchy reported this morning, the media was swooning over, and waiting in breathless anticipation for, the “kiss-in protest” scheduled to occur at Chick-fil-A restaurants today. All while ignoring the massive turn-out for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on Wednesday; that narrative didn’t suit!
Some media outlets were so desperate to build a false narrative, that they resorted to harassing Chick-fil-A employees today themselves. Their attempt at creating a narrative has failed massively, as on-the-scene reports and photos attest.

The media still desperately tries to create buzz.

Alas, it is to no avail. The “protest”? Oh, our sides! Slacktivism is hard.
A little passive protesting to start a weekend @ Chick-fil-A http://t.co/9Ai8t7ZB

That dude is so bored that he has succumbed to corporate evil: Texting on his smart phone.
These two sum it all up.
Oh, the crowds! How will pedestrians ever muddle through the massive throng?
Now, a reminder for the willfully ignorant, like “real journalists,” of what Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, not worthy of media coverage, looked like.

Many, many more photos here. Provided by citizens who were doing the job that the media didn’t want to do.
The “massive” protest today?

To make it easier for the “real journalists,” we can break it down even further. It is a tale that can be told in just two pictures.
Compared with this.

Freedom wins. Bullying loses.
Epic fail, leftist tolerance tyrants. Freedom, and freedom-lovers, will always prevail. We’re good like that.
