“Dear Cracker Barrel Customer: When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we’ve done. You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren’t shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings. You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened. Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores. And, we apologize for offending you. We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not mean to have anyone think different. We sincerely hope you will continue to be part of our Cracker Barrel family.”– Cracker Barrel Press Release

Remember a few days ago when Cracker Barrel made the worst mistake ever? Due to incredible grass-roots pressure, the company reversed its stance, reinstating Duck Dynasty merchandise.
It’s not often that I’m impressed with the support and activism of Conservatives. Generally speaking, Conservatives aren’t the best at activism. We tend to simply let things slide off our backs, or complain about things that aren’t important. But this time, we were right on target. This is an example of just how powerful Americans can be. Minus government, minus politicians and celebrity endorsements, the American people can move mountains with a phone call or a letter.
Moreover, this moment in time is a defining one. This defining moment will be just one of many coming in the near future as the agenda of the radical Left pushes against average American values. At each juncture, when we find ourselves at a time of importance, we must remember what happened today. It may seem unimportant—we got a restaurant to change its position. But Cracker Barrel is a massive corporation with millions of dollars invested in sponsorships. It’s no small achievement what happened, and it happened because we got angry, and we did something about it. We can do the same with the federal government. If we wanted to, we could topple Obamacare—but the conditions must be right.
As these monumental moments of change come at a more rapid pace—and they will—we must be willing, and prepared to fight with as much gusto as we did for Phil Robertson. Because the times, they are a changin’, and if we don’t use our momentum as a people to fight back, we will get steamrolled. After that, we will lose everything.
