Chick-fil-A had their biggest sales day ever yesterday when Americans all over the country stood up for freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom from government tyranny. Long lines of cars and customers on foot were the order of the day for Chick-fil-A.
And than there was Adam Smith, Adjunct Lecturer at Eller College in Arizona and until yesterday, the CFO of Vante Company.
Mr. Smith decided to make a statement, exercise his right of free speech, and let Chick-fil-A know how he felt, give them a piece of his mind. Smith sat in the drive through lane in Tuscon intending to only order "free water," all the while making a video of his hate filled tirade. He tells the clerk she "should be ashamed" of herself for working for the company. He states "this is a horrible corporation with horrible values." Then as he's driving away he ironically says, "I'm a nice guy, by the way ...totally heterosexual. Not a gay in me, I just can't stand the hate."
He posted the video on YouTube and that was the end for Mr. Smith. He got fired from Vante Co. The company stated, "Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company. We expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys values of civility with others."
Now if Eller College would only follow suit.
Watch the poise and dignity that this young woman displays during Smith's attack. Vante, Co. would do well to hire her to replace Adam Smith. She certainly teaches Smith a lesson in tolerance and respect.
