The national temper tantrum over the election of Donald Trump as president is raging on and getting nastier by the day. Leftist allies of Hillary Clinton are using a two-prong assault, one being the neo-McCarthyist blacklisting of hundreds of alternative media websites as Putin propaganda organs and the second is just run of the mill bullying. The main target of the bullying is the immensely popular conservative website Breitbart News.
Democrats and their winged monkeys in the media have gone after Breitbart like a pack of wild dogs and have hammered away at the site as a haven for bigots, Nazis and white nationalists for weeks. The relentless smear campaign has bore fruit with some cowardly corporations being intimidated into pulling their ads from the site, most notably the breakfast cereal giant Kellogg’s.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting “Breitbart News sees advertisers exit, calls Kellogg’s decision ‘un-American’”:
The Breitbart News Network is seeing some of its advertisers head for the exit doors and is responding in typical Breitbart fashion: by going on the counteroffensive, labeling one of them as “un-American” and calling it a war on conservatism.
Since Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election, Los Angeles-based Breitbart has experienced a backlash from some advertisers who say that the online site conflicts with their corporate values.
Breitbart is fighting back at one of the advertisers — the breakfast cereal maker Kellogg Co. — by launching a Twitter campaign #DumpKelloggs that encourages its readers to sign a petition and boycott the maker of such favorites as Froot Loops and Apple Jacks.
On Wednesday, Breitbart placed an article about its #DumpKellogs campaign in the top slot of its homepage. By early afternoon, the article had drawn more than 6,000 reader comments, many in support of the boycott.
“Kellogg’s decision to blacklist one of the largest conservative media outlets in America is economic censorship of mainstream conservative political discourse. That is as un-American as it gets,” Breitbart said in a statement.
And the ongoing attacks against Breitbart and the alternative media – most notably the Washington Post’s disgusting endorsement of a blacklist of websites critical of Hillary Clinton – are indeed anti-American and an affront to free speech. The bullying of Kellogg’s into pulling it’s ads from Breitbart is another sign of liberal hypocrisy, there was no similar national outrage when leftist groups called for a boycott of Kellogg’s over GMO ingredients.
Now Breitbart has upped the ante by calling out Kellogg’s for contributions to leftist organizations that promote a climate of racial divisiveness.
According to Breitbart “#DumpKelloggs: Far-Left Cereal Giant Kellogg’s Warns of ‘Racial Privilege’”:
The Kellogg Company, famous for its breakfast cereals, is giving far-left activists hundreds of millions of dollars to promote left-wing causes and projects, including “white privilege” and “structural racism.”
The company’s project to promote “coming to grips with racism” was touted at its “American Healing Conference.” The conference promised to “move the conversation from hope to possibility.”
In an article on its webpage, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF), the activist NGO sponsored by the Kellogg Company, states that “racial privilege and structural inequities have influenced” America and are at the core of nearly everything the country has done.
“Since the birth of America, racial privilege and structural inequities have influenced the nation’s policies and social systems, from healthcare, education and child welfare to media, food consumption, justice and countless other facets of everyday life,” the foundation states. “In America, those who differ from the majority because of race, color, sexual orientation, religion, gender, weight and other characteristics face a deluge of outright discrimination and unconscious bias.”
The foundation goes on to claim that the nation is racist without even realizing it.
“This paradox is routinely denied by its individual and institutional perpetrators, and sometimes even by its victims. But the impact is real,” the foundation writes. “The social consequences of discrimination can be devastating for everyone, as its targets struggle to overcome barriers from artificial constructs, while those in the majority may consciously or subconsciously wrestle with the root causes of their behavior.” The foundation then announced a five-year $75 million initiative to “combat structural racism in America.”
Its first four-day conference was held in May of 2011, with the foundation telling participants, “We believe that achieving racial equity will require changing hearts, minds and deeply held (often unconscious) beliefs that manifest in and through persistent residential segregation patterns and related disparities in access to opportunity.”
While this humble author isn’t a big consumer of sugary breakfast cereals (although I do have an occasional Jones for a bowl of Lucky Charms) you can bet that I won’t be buying anything related to Kellogg’s going forward or for that matter ANY corporate product that caves to leftist bullying and attacks free speech with boycotts of websites critical of Hillary Clinton and establishment foreign policy.
Perhaps this will serve as an inspiration to Kellogg’s to launch a new product in line with their apparent corporate culture: Fascist Flakes.
