Good news, everyone: The New Yorker is still as awful as you thought.

Evidently they missed the memo, because they actually published this dreck about Chick-fil-A:
I wrote about Chick-fil-A's presence in NYC: awash with cash, Christ, and evangelizing Cows. https://t.co/j4FOKww4u1

Chick-fil-A’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. https://t.co/wnhMrMBN6z

They literally cannot help themselves.
Are you people for real?

I hate when my city is infiltrated and subverted by the unpatriotic scourge of chicken restaurants pic.twitter.com/omhQtp8u2U

Is there anything funnier than the people who feel perpetually threatened by a Chick-fil-A? pic.twitter.com/kBbtkAamZI

Hey. Hate chicken is no laughing matter.
Are you guys really that threatened over a chickenstand
— conscious???? (@conscious___) April 13, 2018
Yes. Yes they are:
Today, the Cows’ “guerrilla insurgency” is more of a carpet bombing. New Yorkers are under no obligation to repeat what they say. Enough, we can tell them. NO MOR.
We couldn’t parody this if we tried.
Too smug. Admit it the food is damn good.

This article is a load of crap. Just eat the food and enjoy or don’t eat the food. Your choice!

And pass up a golden opportunity to shame Christians? As if.
THE POWER OF CHICKEN COMPELS YOU!

It's a freakin chicken sandwich, what's wrong with you people. Do you have an issue with devout Muslims operating Halal carts? Is that an "infiltration?" https://t.co/iKxE2qBDd3

Trying to imagine the New Yorker blasting a thriving restaurant chain for its "pervasive Muslim traditionalism" or "pervasive Jewish traditionalism" https://t.co/6KFys22iz5

Imagine a Texan getting pissed over a kabob place opening up… I wonder what kind of article the New Yorker would write https://t.co/tvTTfyfLvS
— Mujahed Kobbe (@Moj_kobe) April 13, 2018
We have a pretty good idea.
Some parting food for thought:
The best chicken nuggets. Wonderful, friendly service.
Closed on Sundays and still making a huge profit.
Annoying Christianphobic New Yorkers.
What’s not to love about Chick-fil-A? https://t.co/EVTjCqgTpS
