Like I said earlier, would folk be this vitriolic over this if he ran a healthy salad company?
And you still haven't countered my question : why can't we protest? Why can't we disagree? That's what this is all about. Or are you saying that, as members of a community you, by your own words, do not like have less rights than you?
So what? It is not a public corporation so he is likely free to use his cash as he sees fit. If you do not like it, visit Wendy's.
And you really do not know who he funds, or do you? I am asking if you know. Even if you manage to be accurate, so what? Not your business or my business. Simply avoid the place.
You can certainly protest. That is your absolute right, period. We have always protected unpopular speech so even hate speech is protected. So go right ahead and protest because I do not have a problem with it.
Just let the other side protest as well. Sadly, this is taken to be hate speech by some people on your side. And even more sad is that with the liberal press, we are told how evil we are for not accepting one group or another.
Dan has the right to spend his money as he sees fit. He has the right to his pinion (held by millions of other Americans) and he has a right to say what he wants to say. He is not an evil guy.
