LOLCOW: New Yorker Piece rails against Manhattan Chik-Fil-A

The more fatalistic will add that hypocrisy is baked, or fried, into every consumer experience—that unbridled corporate power makes it impossible to bring your wallet in line with your morals. Still, there’s something especially distasteful about Chick-fil-A, which has sought to portray itself as better than other fast food: cleaner, gentler, and more ethical, with its poultry slightly healthier than the mystery meat of burgers. Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are inflected with this suburban piety. A representative of the Richards Group once told Adweek, “People root for the low-status character, and the Cows are low status. They’re the underdog.” That may have been true in 1995, when Chick-fil-A was a lowly mall brand struggling to find its footing against the burger juggernauts. 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.

Dan Piepenbring is a writer based in Brooklyn.


Whereas Chipotle must be the heaven sent gift of sustainability (and E. Coli)

I'm so old Brooklyn meant "Real Life Credentials". Now it means "Complete Hard Left Nutcase"

Freedom of speech!
Others have the right to criticize any media.
And still others have the right to BOYCOTT all Republican businesses,families & friends.

Die Republican trash! While shuttering your businesses.
Dying as FAILURES!, is their proper reward.

Gotta buy me some soon again - pretty tasty sandwiches. Even tastier with tears of moralizing bullshitters.

Their coffee sucks. But the chicken biscuits are amazing. I limit myself to eating them 2x a year.

Best fast food chicken ever.
xtra thin crust keeps it healthy
tender real chicken on the inside seals the deal.

The only day I don't like Chick Fil-a is on Sundays.

The institution that gave Dan Piepenbring a journalism degree or certificate should be shuttered.

The New Yorker of yore was always liberal on the occasions when it commented on politics, but the recent punk liberal echo chamber stuff really sullies it's open minded traditions.

I have loved the New Yorker over the years in spite of it's liberal bent, but now it is just as abrasive and pushy about the liberal agenda as the other rags, while trying to clothe it all in some kind of tacky chrome intellectual sheen.

I don't know what to say.

I am so perplexed how an adult male could write such a pathetic piece.
