    #DumpKelloggs: Breakfast Brand Blacklists Breitbart, Declares Hate for 45,000,000 Rea

    They also use GMO in their products along with tons of sugar, destroying your immune system, and palm oil sourced by burning down rain forests for cheap palm oil - avoid products with palm oil. The disastrous effects are loss of habitat for critically endangered species and death to thousands of people by air pollution. They also use child labor. Pringles (gmo potatoes) are banned in Europe. Count on all grains, sugars in their cereals to be gmo sourced; unfortunately they don't have to label that. In the future, a symbol readable by a smart phone would denote gmos.

    #DumpKelloggs: Breakfast Brand Blacklists Breitbart, Declares Hate for 45,000,000 Readers







    by Breitbart News30 Nov 2016

    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.

    Kellogg’s offered no examples of how Breitbart’s 45 million monthly readers fail to align with the breakfast maker’s values. Indeed, the move appears to be one more example of anout-of-touch corporation embracing false left-wing narratives used to cynically smear the hard working Americans that populate this nation’s heartland.

    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.

    “Kellogg’s has shown its contempt for Breitbart’s 45 million readers and for the main street American values that they hold dear,” said Breitbart President and CEO, Larry Solov. “Pulling its advertising from Breitbart News is a decidedly cynical and un-American act. The only sensible response is to join together and boycott Kellogg’s products in protest.”
    Some of Kellogg’s brands:

    • Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes®

    • Pop-Tarts®

    This company and a lot of other companies need to stop making their political views public as they are alienating the very people that buy their products. I will not buy any of their products in the future. Maybe when they get hit in the pocket they will get the point. We do not care about your political views just sell a good product at a fair price that is all.

    And .... make the products in the United States and hire American Workers.

    Kelloggs is a globalist company, they're big in Mexico, that's where that globalist Guiterrez came from that GW Bush appointed to be Secretary of Commerce that pushed open borders and free trade treason.

    I looked at the list and the only thing they sell that I eat is rice crispies and I personally find the Great Value brand at Walmart is about cheaper and better. So pass that along!!

    Kellogg Foundation Gave Big to Soros Organization, Tides Foundation



    by LEE STRANAHAN
    2 Dec 2016

    The institutional left’s funding behemoth W.K. Kellogg Foundation has partnered with and given major donations to George Soros’s Open Society Institute and the Tides Center as part of its massive push to promote a far-left agenda.

    The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is the nonprofit arm of cereal and sweets giant Kellogg’s, based in Battle Creek, Michigan. The Kellogg Company is chiefly known for its breakfast brands, including Special K™ cereal, Eggo® waffles, and Pop-Tarts®; but its namesake nonprofit W.K. Kellogg Foundation is one of the largest institutional funders in the world and is the seventh largest philanthropic foundation in the United States.

    The Kellogg’s website explains the history of the Foundation:

    As the United States sunk into the Depression, W.K. Kellogg declared, “I’ll invest in people.” He split shifts and hired new employees to work them. He also founded the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, whose mission — to help children realize their potential — complements that of the Kellogg Company to this day.

    In recent years, however, the focus of the Foundation has drifted away from just helping children toward promoting left-wing political issues.

    Examples of such funding include a direct grant to George Soros’s Open Society Institute, which received $200,000 from the Foundation to “eliminate racial inequities in the juvenile justice system and promote racial healing through community-based conferences, policy changes, and communication strategies.”

    Two other far-left groups, the Tides Center and Tides Foundation, both based in San Francisco, are also top recipients of funds and support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. A search of the grants given by the Foundation for “Tides” yields over 120 results.

    Most recently, on November 1, 2016, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation gave $2,150,000 to the Tides Center in order to:

    Scale up farm-to-school benefits for vulnerable children through continued expansion to early care and education sites and diversification of partnerships, ensuring equitable access and institutionalization

    Another W.K. Kellogg Foundation grant in 2016 gave over $380,000 to Tides in order to:

    Provide updated publications/tools describing the state of grantmaking with a racial equity/racial justice lens, including insights to support grantmaking considerations at the program officer and institutional levels, through support of the Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity

    The benevolent-sounding program descriptions go along with the way George Soros, one of the world’s wealthiest men, portrays his “open societies” vision. An article on Fox News described the model for Soros’s charitable contributions as “pro-one world government, pro-abortion, pro-government controlled media, pro-drug and even pro-euthanasia and against the very institutions that stand for traditional values such as family and faith.”

    The connection between the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and Tides appears to go beyond mere funding. In a section of the Tides website called “Expanding Your Reach,” Tides explains to community organizers and would-be grant recipients how they can be part of a “partnership” with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and other top institutional left funders to get more of the billions of dollars available for issues ranging from elections to immigration reform and foreign policy. The website says:

    In partnership with institutions like The California Endowment, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Open Society Foundations, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Gates Foundation, Ford Foundation, and many others, we have granted hundreds of millions of dollars. With Tides, your foundation can ease administrative burden, expand programmatic capacity, collaborate effectively, and increase the impact of your grantmaking programs.

    Tides is a platform for funding collaboratives that address issues as diverse as global disability rights, election administration reform, and state-based LGBT advocacy. Funders also start innovative programs with Tides that cross multiple issues, such as the integration of reproductive health with AIDS/HIV treatment in Africa. Tides also provides vehicles to support funding advocacy on critical policy issues like immigration reform, health care and U.S. foreign policy
    .

    Tides was founded in 1976. One important institutional left figure who is part of Tides is Wade Rathke, whose official biography on his own blog lists him as “Founder of ACORN, Chief Organizer at ACORN International, Author of Citizen Wealth, Global Grassroots and The Battle for the 9th Ward,” in addition to pointing out:

    Wade is also the Chair of the Organizers’ Forum, which brings together labor and community organizers for two dialogues per year, one domestic and one international. The Organizers’ Forum is a project of the Tides Center. Wade was a founding board member of the Tides Foundation and continues to serve as senior advisor of the San Francisco-based organization and for a number of their entities including the Paradox Fund and Frontera Fund.

    It’s unclear how many consumers are aware of Kellogg’s institutional leftist funding through its namesake nonprofit, but it’s safe to say not all agree with the company’s ultra-liberal political views. In 2014, the Kellogg Company was criticized by some for an ad featuring its Frosted Flakes Tony the Tiger character saying, “Wear your stripes with pride,” to promote the company’s sponsorship of a gay pride march in Atlanta, Georgia.

    As Breitbart News has also reported, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation has put over $75,000,000 into an initiative to “combat structural racism in America.” An article on the Foundation’s website explains:

    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. 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.

    This is a developing story…

    Kelloggs is a big contributor to affiliates of National Council of La Raza. Remember when we were researching their organization in North Carolina years ago in our fight against in-state tuition and driver's license for illegal aliens? They not only gave money but had one of their honcho executives on the board.

    The organization is El Pueblo.

    Add to the list and vote with our wallets!

    #dumpmexico



    Planning a vacation to Mexico? Do not go there, shut their tourist industry down. Spend your tourist dollars in the Hawaiian Islands, the Florida beaches, Key West or US Virgin Islands.

    Send the message to President Nieto to put HIS military on the border and stop the drugs, diseases, the human trafficking and invasion of OUR country.

    President Nieto needs to get on Spanish television...telling HIS citizens to pack up and go back to Mexico. He has plenty of land for them...put them in a Safe Zone on HIS soil. He can give them tents and shelter, set up schools, put them to work building Mexico. The Mexican Churches and Mexican billionaires can work together in this effort.

    Anybody in the USA going shopping? Going to the liquor store? Check every label, if is says "Made in Mexico"...put it back on the shelf...do not buy it.

    The USA is a Nation of Laws...respect OUR Laws, our people and our Country. Mexico is NOT a good neighbor.

    Every American needs to stand together...get the word out...do NOT use your money to buy products or travel in Mexico.

    If our own government and Mexico refuse to secure our borders and stop this invasion...we MUST do it with our wallets!

    We can do this...get on twitter to Donald Trump, to Fox News, get on FB, get the billboards up, pass this on to your friends.
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    I don't see anything on the list that we use - course we are a couple of old fogeys.

    We do occasionally eat cereal, but Aldi's brand. Aldi's doesn't carry many brand name products, but I did notice several Kellogg brands in their store Saturday.

    Two questions:

    Most huge corporations own other companies- what exactly does Kellogg own - or who owns Kellogg?

    Also, many brand name companies package products for store brands.
    Does Kellogg do that?
