Today is “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”
After intolerant and First Amendment-hating Chicago politicians blocked Chick-fil-A from building a restaurant, former Governor Mike Huckabee announced his support for the restaurant chain and its Constitutional right of free speech. He declared today Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Allen added: People are standing in line 100+ deep to go inside. The lines go out and around the building. Two lines of drive through cars are around the shopping center.
Gwilym and Ari David sent this from Los Angeles.
St. Louisans also came out in huge numbers to show their support for the First Amendment.
The lot was jam-packed…
(Mike took these photos in Chesterfield, Missouri.)
The line of cars wraps all the way around to the main boulevard, where the line still continues.
Normally, with this crowd volume you would expect short tempers and bedlam. That’s not the case today at Chick-fil-A. While the surrounding restaurant chains are empty, the people in this line are happily making a statement, talking to each other with smiles on their faces. They’re patriots taking a stand against a gross violation of our First Amendment right. And they are doing it in 100 degree temperatures.
Any bets if this will make the MSM tonight?
If you have more photos please send them in!
Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) bought Chick-fil-A for his office staff today.
Here’s a photo from Texas.
Ruth Wendelken sent this from Texas: This is at 11:15 at the Los Colinas Texas Chick-fil-a. Notice the line is three cars wide around the building. The line of foot traffic is huge. Notice the sign of 315 cars served at that time. Now in center line. Its a great day for Freedom of speech. Take that Boston, Chicago and San Francisco!
Bud from Virginia sent this: We have 3 stores here in Fredericksburg, VA and each one was jammed packed with cars; the drive-thru lanes wrapped around the building and overflow parking was required.
The attached picture shows overflow parking on the right and the Chick-Fil-A lot on the left.
Chicago values? These nuns were spotted at the Chicago restaurant.

More… Ryan M. sent this from Virginia:
I recently moved to Reston, Virginia with my new wife Amanda and I wanted to let you know that the Chick-fil-A here was PACKED to the brim all day. I went up there at 7pm hoping to avoid the lines but I ended up parking at a hotel several hundred feet down the street. I stood in line with hundreds of fellow supporters for a half an hour just to get two lemonades and a brownie (for the wife). I would have bought chicken, but alas, I am allergic. Anyway, just wanted to let you know.

Here’s a shot from the Northridge, California Chick-fil-A.
Here’s a photo I took from today, August 1, 2012…. The cars in line for drive thru window went down the street (at least 50 cars on the street before the driveway), plus the people in line to walk into order ran around the back of the building. This Northridge California franchise is owned by a young woman in her 20′s. God bless America!
