San Antonio taxpayers are paying a pretty penny for the city’s woke war on Chick-fil-A.
The city has spent north of $315,000 on court fees thus far in connection with two lawsuits and one federal investigation into its decision to ban the fast-food restaurant from the San Antonio National Airport, according to National Review.
San Antonio made banning Chick-fil-A a prerequisite for renewal of the airport’s concession contractor’s license. City leaders, like government officials in other woke towns, don’t like that Chick-fil-A has donated to certain Christian charities. And they feel so self-satisfied.
“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Councilman Roberto Trevino said in a statement.
But banning businesses because of their charitable donations doesn’t feel inclusive — and it certainly doesn’t seem constitutional.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton doesn’t think so. He opened an investigation into the city’s ban. Meanwhile, the state Legislature proposed a “Save Chick-fil-A” bill, which was initially blocked by the state house’s LGBTQ caucus, National Review reported. Ultimately, Gov. Greg Abbott signed the bill into law.
A judge recently ruled against the city’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit alleging the city council discriminated against Chick-fil-A because of its religious beliefs.
Hmm. Another woke city discriminates while praising itself for being a “champion of equality and inclusion.”
