As a youngster I remember being a big fan of Kelloggs Corn Flakes with the big rooster on the box. As a matter of fact, Kelloggs cereals gave me a lot of personal pleasure from the games and promotionals that came either in, or on the box and now the products the company makes are so numerous, it’s doubtful we could actually boycott all of them.
But I’m going to try!
Why, you ask?
Because I am a fan of Breitbart News and Kelloggs has made the mistake of blacklisting the well established conservative news service and so have a lot of other companies who have swallowed the political correctness narrative about Trump supporters, specifically and conservatives, in general.
Breitbart tells us “the why”:
Kellogg Co. announced on Tuesday its decision to pull ads from conservative media giant Breitbart.com because its 45,000,000 monthly conservative readers are not “aligned with our values as a company.” In response, Breitbart News, one of the world’s top news publishers, has launched a #DumpKelloggs petition and called for a boycott of the ubiquitous food manufacturer.
The decision by Kellogg’s, which makes Pringles, Eggo waffles, as well as Special K and Frosted Flakes cereals, among others, will make virtually no revenue impact on Breitbart.com. It does, however, represent an escalation in the war by leftist companies like Target and Allstate against conservative customers whose values propelled Donald Trump into the White House.
“We regularly work with our media-buying partners to ensure our ads do not appear on sites that aren’t aligned with our values as a company,” said Kellogg’s flak Kris Charles. “We recently reviewed the list of sites where our ads can be placed and decided to discontinue advertising on Breitbart.com. We are working to remove ads from that site.”
So what are the values of Breitbart News and why is the Kelloggs company being so mean?
Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow encouraged the boycott of Kellogg’s products, describing their war against Breitbart News as bigoted and anti-American: “Breitbart News is the largest platform for pro-family content anywhere on the Internet.
We are fearless advocates for traditional American values, perhaps most important among them is freedom of speech, or our motto ‘more voices, not less.’
For Kellogg’s, an American brand, to blacklist Breitbart News in order to placate left-wing totalitarians is a disgraceful act of cowardice.
They insult our incredibly diverse staff and spit in the face of our 45,000,000 highly engaged, highly perceptive, highly loyal readers, many of whom are Kellogg’s customers. Boycotting Breitbart News for presenting mainstream American ideas is an act of discrimination and intense prejudice.
If you serve Kellogg’s products to your family, you are serving up bigotry at your breakfast table.”
In response, Breitbart launched its #DumpKelloggs petition to encourage its vast readership and the followers of its #1 in the world political Facebook and Twitter pages to ban bigotry from the breakfast table by boycotting Kellogg’s products.
Nobody could’ve said it any better and Kelloggs had better rethink their position towards Breitbart News because Kelloggs may find themselves on the losing side of a moral, cultural and spiritual battle they really don’t want to have to fight!
