Breitbart counterpunches Kellogg’s anti-conservative bigotry

Kellogg’s mixes left lurching politics with peddling its sugary products

At first glance it appears odd that a well-respected, conservative media outlet such as Breitbart News would engage in any type of bout with Kellogg’s.

But it was the sugar-drenched cereal manufacturer recently exposed for using deceptive practices citing a company paid “Breakfast Council” of “independent experts” to tout its nutritional benefits,  that landed the first blow as it announced its decision to pull ads from Breitbart.com. Breitbart is not “aligned with our values as a company,” Kellogg said in a statement. The company’s values obviously don’t include President-elect Donald Trump’s top strategist Steve Bannon, who formerly ran the popular news site.

This is the shocking back story to what you may have regarded as an unhealthy but politically benign cereal manufacturer. 

While you’re on the # Dump Kellogg’s site, join the hundreds of thousands who have signed the Boycott pledge. The banner message is “Join the Movement Against Kellogg’s Bigotry.”

Why would any parent want to serve their kids a bowl of Frosted Flakes that is loaded with sugar, salt and BHT preservatives?  Tony the Tiger and Kellogg’s fake “experts” might think this is “GR-R-REAT!” but you know it and the other products Kellogg’s sells are as loaded with as much trickery as the company’s left-wing politics. Join the nearly 400,000 people — as of this morning –who are boycotting the morning sugar rush products bearing the Kellogg’s brand.

    This is the official bio of Kellogg’s Australian-born liberal CEO John A. Bryant who rakes in a yearly salary of $9,871,207.

    Since the only Kellogg’s product I buy is Raisin Bran, I will do my very small bit to ensure Kellogg’s stock goes south, just as I did with Target, which was also not content to fulfill its customers needs but had to get involved in the transgender bathroom debacle. My young daughter is not going to use the same bathroom as a male shopper, even one in a dress! We pulled all of our prescriptions from Target and now shop for clothes and household items at discounter Kohl’s.

    Guaranteed, Michelle Obama has no problem with the sickening, sugary junk they put out. They’re on her radical side of the political spectrum.

    The Kellogg brothers, W.K. and J.H., were two very different characters. J.H. embraced vegetarianism and alternate methods of the Church of Seventh Day Adventists. He left Michigan to study conventional medicine in NY, then returned to Battle Creek, Michigan to be the doctor in residence for a sanitarium there.
    This place was sometimes referred to as a wellness spa.

    W.K. Kellogg barely had any education, but had a sense for business. He became the business manager for the sanitarium.

    The brothers developed corn flakes quite by accident, while trying to develop an alternative to shredded wheat which had come on the market out of Colorado. Although Dr. Kellogg saw the health benefit of shredded wheat, very few of his clients found it to be palatable.

    It was W.K. who started the Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. He spent extraordinary amounts of money for advertising and it paid off.

    In 1930, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation was formed with a focus on agriculture and education.

    Kellogg’s bought out Keebler, the cookie and cracker maker, in 2001 for almost 4 billion dollars.

    Kashi is another acquisition which was made to catch the customers who want “organic” choices.

    Interesting how these companies use stockholders’ money to give contributions to political candidates.

    I love it when these companies jump into politics. Now we can choose with our checkbooks.

      Fascinating background on Kellogg’s founders.They must be spinning in their graves.

      I agree with your premise that “we can choose with our checkbooks.” It’s been years since we’ve gone to a movie and paid the exorbitant ticket prices that go directly into the pockets of the liberal actors, and moguls. Few in the motion picture industry are conservative. When I read about Gwenyth Paltrow hosting a fundraiser for Obama at her home and then gushing< "Oh…you're so beautiful" to him, it made me all the more certain the Hollyweird crowd would never get a thin dime of our money. George Clooney is among the so called celebrity throngs who have hosted and raised millions for Obama. This pack of liberals lost my wife and me years ago.

    The liberalism that pervades corporate America today is a far cry from the intent of the originators of the companies. As consumers, we need to do research as to where we spend our money. There are always choices. Money talks. If enough of us go elsewhere, it will reflect in the bottom line and those who put liberal social activists above profits for the stock holders (many of whom are conservatives) might see the wisdom in running their companies rather than trying to reconfigure the world. They all want to emulate Socialist, globalist George Soros.

    Incidentally, I found this excellent site “Discover the Networks” here on Seeing Red AZ. There is so much enlightening information about so many people and organizations here. I’ve learned a lot.

    Just saw this on dailymailonline.com:

    On Dec 7, we will remember U.S. military veterans who lost their lives during the Japanese air attack on our Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

    Obama stays true to his narcissistic self.

    He insults WWII Veterans regarding any negative feelings they may hold against the Japanese

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4001384/Japan-s-Prime-Minister-announces-historic-visit-Pearl-Harbor-mark-75th-anniversary-attack-alongside-Obama.html

    It has been announced that the Prime MInister of Japan will join Obama at Pearl Harbor either on Dec 26 or Dec 27, 2016.
    It is also noted that it is unknown whether the Japanese PM will apologize for the attack.

    Remember that Obama went to Hiroshima earlier this year as part of his 2016 Apology Tour.
