Tune in next Sunday to see jolly Dan Cathy lick the bottom of those shiny shoes.

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy: White People Should Shine Shoes of Black People to Express Shame for Racism

“I invite folks just to put some words to action here and if we need to find somebody that needs to have their shoes shined, we need to just go right on over and shine their shoes.”

“Whether they got tennis shoes on or not — maybe they got sandals on — it really doesn’t matter. But, there’s a time in which we need to have some personal action here. Maybe we need to give them a hug, too.

“I bought about 1,500 of these [brushes] and I gave them to all our Chick-Fil-A operators and staff a number of years ago.”

“So, any expressions of a contrite heart, of a sense of humility, a sense of shame, a sense of embarrassment begat with an apologetic heart — I think that’s what our world needs to hear today.”

Popeye’s just brought their chicken sandwich’s availability to eight days a week.

[Note: I spent some time on the Chick-Fil-A comment line –(866) 232-2040 — with a gentleman named Mandrell to ask him if abasing oneself by shining the shoes of other men was now an official policy. Mandrell claimed not to know about this and asked if it happened yesterday or today. He claimed that he never got a shine brush and seemed somewhat less than forthcoming when I asked him, “Do you think any man should shine another man’s shoes in order to curry favor?” He was in a hurry to close off the report…. and get on to the next of hundreds of thousands of calls from folks kicking Chick-Fil-A to the curb. I advised him to find another job that was not such a waste of life.]

    Dan Cathy should watch that clip and consider what happened to Billy Batts later in real life and in Goodfellas

    The sayings of Chairmen Ball Sack
    “I invite folks [“folks”? Fuck you.] just to put some words to action here [Here in your shorts, butt smooch] and if we need to find somebody [I don’t have that need, dick wash.] that needs [this fucker has a LOT of needs] to have their shoes shined [because a shoe shine is a powerful need if you are too fucking lazy to do it yourself. And by the way, girly name, go do yourself] , we need to just go right on over [Yeah, just CRAWL on over, douch pipe] and shine their shoes [and pucker up to provide a solid blow job. Because nothing says ‘I’m a sad sack ass munch ‘ like taking it down the wind pipe till you hit solid lung.]

    “Whether they got [nice grammar, tongue bath] tennis shoes on or not — maybe they got sandals on — [maybe they are wearing granny’s hair weave. Possibly they have their nasty-ass feet shoved into whole chickens.] it really doesn’t matter [because, like Joe Biden, I have no idea what I’m talking about, if anything]. But, there’s a time [about 2:30] in which [you mean ‘when’, tampon] we need [more fucking needs] to have some personal action [what would ‘impersonal action’ be, ball gargler] here [as said, like a good blow job]. Maybe we need to give them [our new masters] a hug, too [with a side order of up the ass one time]]

    “So, any [‘any’? How about free punch in the mouth, crack inspector?] expressions of a contrite heart [oh go inject some Draino in your heart], of a sense of humility [not real humility, just a sense of it], a sense of shame [not real shame, just a sense of shame] , a sense of embarrassment [not real embarrassment, just a sense of it] begat [And Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Mel, and Mel begot Ned, and Ned begot clap., etc. and so forth, world without end, amen, and fuck you as well] with an apologetic heart [Oh no. I’m having an apologetic heart attack!]— I think that’s what our world needs to hear today [I thought this was about brushing shoes and sucking dong. Where did the hearing part come in. I musta been distracting by the sounds of a dick smooch getting his slurp on.]

    It’s a damn shame. They made a nice chicken sandwich. I also thought their closed on Sunday policy was a positive business statement. Sort of a return to a quaint and less unpleasant time .

    They can choke on their chicken sandwich now.

  • ghostsniper June 19, 2020, 5:55 PM

    Kind of unbelievable idn’t it?
    What do you make of all this insanity of late?
    Chick-fil-a never made a red centavo off’n my ass and prolly never will.

  • rabbit tobacco June 19, 2020, 6:33 PM

    Cathy is going be eaten,
    since he has become a chicken.

  • Jewel June 19, 2020, 7:07 PM

    If the lockdown has taught me anything, eating out can be done without, and my chicken sammies taste better than anyone else’s.

  • madtntaxpayer June 19, 2020, 7:10 PM

    I understand where he his coming from, trying to express his Christian beliefs by advocating some sort of modified foot washing expression to this shoe shine s(chick)t.

    “I invite folks [‘folks’? Blow me.] just to put some words to action [how does THAT make sense?] here [where? be specific, dick smooch.] and if we need to find somebody [I don’t need to find somebody. Maybe YOU do, dick face.] that needs to have their shoes shined [Oh, yeah, One of Maslow’s needs. “A shoe shine.”], we need to just go right on over [Right on! Right on! Where, a hole surfer?] and shine their shoes.” [Oh. gargle my nuts, pussy.]

    “Whether they got [Nice grammar, putz face.] tennis shoes on or not — maybe they got sandals on — [maybe they are wearing Granny’s wig, or have their nasty feet shoved into whole chickens.] it really doesn’t matter. [Yeah, not to me, dildo mouth.] But, there’s a time [around 3:30] in which we need [not MY needs, mo fo] to have some personal action [In marked contrast to IMpersonal acti0n.] here. [Again, I ask, where?] Maybe we need to give them a hug, too. [and a complementary comprehensive rim job.]

    “So, any expressions of a contrite heart [how about Draino injected into your left ventricle, you sad asshole?], of a sense of humility [a sense, not the real thing], a sense of shame [Hey, I sense some shame here. Wuz up wit dats?], a sense of embarrassment [I be so embarrassed, in a sense] begat [and Jacob begat Mel, and Mel begat Judy, and Judy begat Neddy from Nazareth] ] with an apologetic heart [My heart says, ‘sorry but go fuck yousef.’]— I think that’s what our world needs to hear today.” [Yeah, I need to hear you suck it down deep into your lungs and take it up your small intestine.]

  • Stephanie June 19, 2020, 7:39 PM

    I get the distinct feeling he’s doing this to get laid, or to keep from people finding out he was getting laid, something. Nobody acts like this and says stupid crap like that of their own complete free will. No way. Dude has something to hide or thinks he can ‘score’ with the young polyamorous leftists. Something dirty behind this behavior. He’s probably a monster.

    I was at a Chick-fil-A a couple of days ago. They still weren’t allowing customers inside, but man, the place was humming. There were separate parking areas for DoorDash and for regular customers with a pickup order (numbered slots allowing the customer to alert the crew of arrival). There was a steady flow of polite and cheerful folks from inside to those spaces.

    But oh, my, the drive thru lane was a work of retail art. There were eight people working outside at 3 p.m. Four took orders in the two lines into tablets which transmit the order, right down to sauce preference, to the store computer. You swipe your card on the proffered machine, and it’s a good machine, that does not require multiple swipes.

    Further up, about where one would normally order through the speakers, were two cashiers. Cash customers pay here, and credit customers get a receipt. Then you go around the corner, and there are two more people taking orders from the window and delivering them to cars. If your order is ready before someone ahead of you, they’ll bring it and you’re on your way.

    It is an amazing thing to watch the cars zip through. There’s 40 or more cars, and yet your order is in your hands in under five minutes.

    And then one sees this guy groveling. That’s what it is. I understand the Christian concept, and I think it’s a good and useful thing, but not to someone who is looking for an opportunity to loot.

    The Minnesota Twins took down their statue of Calvin Griffith, the owner who brought the Washington Senators (Mk. 1) to the Twin Cities. Griffith was a baseball guy, but not known for brilliance in other areas, and had made a speech in a small Minnesota town that was less than woke, 40 years ago. It kind of sounds like this CEO is brilliant in getting good chicken into your hands quickly and pleasantly, but not so good at PR.

  • CC June 19, 2020, 10:05 PM

    Definitely a worse contagion than the wu-flu.

    “It kind of sounds like this CEO is brilliant in getting good chicken into your hands quickly and pleasantly, but not so good at PR.”

    I say, Fuck him and the chicken he clucked in on. Next he’ll have shoe shine stands to serve all the brothers.

    “Sammich and a shoe shine, Sir?”

    “Yeah, and don’t forget to snap that rag, bitch.”

    I think Lance and Anon are in a classic game of doing the dozens.

    On my browser, the first line of this rendered as “Tune in next Sunday to see jolly Dan Cathy lick the bottom of”. I clicked on this to find out who.


    What a disappointment.

    Gorden sed: “…your order is in your hands in under five minutes.”
    50 years ago McDonald’s had your order in your hands in LESS than 60 seconds every dam time and they only had a skeleton crew and no gadgets and usually your order was less than $1.

    Nothing is better, your perspective just changes, everything gets worse, and you adjust accordingly.
    More than likely my wife and I will never eat in a commercial establishment again. This virus business was just the icing on the shit cake. Everything about “eating out” is mostly revolting and as Jewel said above, the stuff we prepare here on the compound blows away everything out there. For me, this crossover started about 20 years ago. The last time we ate out was on my birthday in Jan and went to this place https://www.uplandbeer.com/locations/columbus-pump-house/ It was an exceptionally decent experience and I’m convinced that it was so because there were only a handful of people there. We had never been to this place before but had heard about it. It was about a 45 min drive from the compound. Service was excellent, pricing was reasonable, food was tasty, the atmosphere was excelsior. The building inside and out was a site to behold and it was situated right up against a snow melt rushing river that was hard to take your eyes away from. I could be tempted to go back, but I doubt that moment in time could be recreated. I had the reuben on marble rye and my wife had the pulled pork sando.

    Don’t forget how he previously stepped into it with the LBLT crowd who protested outside of Chick Fil A’s because this guy was a Christian and therefor was considered to be a bigot. The boycott was supposed to drive him out of business. Tons of people began pouring into the restaurants to show their support for him and his business. He had the best sales ever and the boycott was a bust. Media ran stories about people eating their must be Christian bigots. Then what did he do? Turned around and groveled and made huge donations to Planned Parenthood and LGTB groups. They have good food (There salads with avocado lime dressing are fabulous) and cute cow commercials, but I’m done with grovelers, kneelers, shoe shiners, and appeasers. My money is going to their competitors.

  • Henry Lee June 20, 2020, 6:24 AM

    I prefer Zaxby’s myself but I don’t think that Cathy’s comments will have much effect, even here in Northeast Georgia. When you pass by a Chick-Fil-A at mealtime, the drive-through line will be around the store and the parking lot will be full. I believe that people who eat there will continue and probably don’t pay much attention to the politics of the executive class. The LBGT business didn’t seem to hurt them though this is a different order of magnitude more insulting, disgusting even.
    Truett Cathy is probably spinning in his grave.

  • Jack June 20, 2020, 7:09 AM

    Screw Chikfilet, I never have thought that their food was particularly good and nearly any other fast food joint can provide a better tasting sammich so really, I don’t care if the company’s president shines D’Marco’s shoes, sands the bunions and licks the feet of every 500 lb negress he can find, joins a daisy chain with the NAACP or goes on the down low as a dominated bottom with Al Sharpton.

    And, I don’t care if he can pray in the Second Coming. He once took a stand and now he’s folding like a cheap umbrella but it’s his life, his choices and only sheep will follow either side.

  • Eric Blair June 20, 2020, 8:10 AM

    There are lots of choices for fast food with local non-corpchain restaurants …

    This is not a call to boycott, just think, and make a choice. Cathy et al are noting more, or less, than the Eloi, answering the bells. Time to catch a clue, WTFU, and open your eyes. Choose

  • Harry June 20, 2020, 9:39 AM

    I’ve never eaten at one of his places. There aren’t any in the neighborhood. But I wonder if there are things going on behind the scenes. “Nice bunch of restaurants ya got here pal. Be a shame if anything happens to them. Here is a list of your officially approved, new and improved, correct thoughts. Now get out there and be an ally.”

  • ghostsniper June 20, 2020, 9:51 AM

    Harry makes a good point. Use that method against them. Kidnap a few of the amcom cucks in a variety of places across the country, and remove their unused male parts, scrape em right off flush with the surrounding surfaces, cauterize the wound with an industrial heat gun, slather them with agricultural antibiotic ointment, then drop em off back at hotel sierra. Do this to about a hundred of them at the same time all across the country then let the word get out and sweep the land.

    The thing is, Dan Cathy is giving shoe shine boys, and men, a bad name. Owning a shoe shine stand was a respectable business, in the past. Most shoe shine boys, white or black, absolutely knew how to polish up a shoe, spit shine glossy. Not many folks wear a shoe today that will take a shine. Too bad. And while I still shine my own shoes, and don’t go past many shoe shine stands, if I do go past one, I’ll jump in the seat for a shine, whether wearing a pair of Tony Lamas, or just a nice Redwing boot, and tip a good polish well.

  • Vanderleun June 20, 2020, 11:26 AM

    Thanks for the tip on that Breaking Babylon, TC.
