I don’t really agree with the vandalism, its not justified in my mind yet. But I have to say I like the message here. 

I don’t really agree with the idea that the old ideas fit. Honestly, peaceful protests and picketing (which get raided and pepper sprayed ANYWAY) are the tools that those in power give us to make us feel like we have some say. They allow us these things so we don’t use our actual power. Vandalism is just the beginning. Vandalism is the tip of the iceberg of what we are capable of. When we hold picket signs in our hand, when we march, when we hold hands and fucking sing, you have to know that our signs say what they allow them to say, we march because they allow us to walk, and they laugh when we show solidarity. They are not afraid of us. And no, I’m no longer just talking about Chik-Fil-A, it’s so much more than that. It leads back to this growing unease in the general citizenry that shit ain’t right. And we don’t understand why when we ask nicely, we don’t get what we want.
So I COMPLETELY agree with vandalism.
And if I ever see a picture of a Chik-Fil-A in flames, I’ll agree with that too.

whelp sometimes ya get pissed and paint a cow painting “tastes like hate” on the side of a chic-fil-a, an entire day dedicated to supporting a company that’s full of hate will do that to a person.
