Tony the Tiger says Gay Pride is Grrrrrrreat!

12 Nov


Christians Outraged as Kellogg Uses Tony the Tiger in ‘Gay Pride’ Advertisement.

“Wear your stripes with pride,” an advertisement featuring the Frosted Flakes icon, was reportedly published in the Atlanta, Georgia pride guide last month to coincide with the city’s homosexual pride march and festival. Kellogg had served as one of the sponsors for the event.

[…]

In addition to Frosted Flakes, Kellogg is also the maker of Fruit Loops, Rice Krispies, Apple Jacks and Special K, as well as Pop Tarts, Eggo waffles and Nutri-Grain granola bars.

But Kellogg is not the first cereal company to openly express its support for homosexuality. As previously reported, in 2012, General Mills announced its support for same-sex “marriage” and its disdain for any laws that would attempt to prevent it. CEO Ken Powell appeared at a Minnesota homosexual pride event declaring his opposition for a then-proposed state constitutional amendment that would enshrine marriage as being solely between a man and a woman.

Ken Charles, General Mills’ Vice President of Diversity, also issued a letter throughout the company, outlining that he believed homosexual “marriage” would benefit employee productivity, and that if the amendment passed, it would be more difficult to retain skilled workers.

“I am proud to see our company join the ranks of local and national employers speaking out for inclusion,” Charles stated. “We do not believe the proposed constitutional amendment is in the best interests of our employees or our state economy – and as a Minnesota-based company we oppose it.”

General Mills markets well-known cereal brands such as Cheerios, Wheaties, Chex and Total. It is also responsible for products from brands like Yoplait, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Hamburger Helper and Green Giant.

Kellogg and General Mills join a plethora of companies that have actively promoted homosexuality, including Starbucks, Nabisco, Betty Crocker, Campbell’s and Burger King.

Like certain coffeehouses, brewers, pizzerias, fast-food joints, other cereal makers, satellite-TV providers, and others, they don’t want our business as much as they want progs’ business, and don’t care if they alienate us.

But screw Kellogg’s and General Mills and Nabisco, too. Cereal isn’t good for you, anyway; John Harvey Kellogg was a quack. A nutbar. He should have been ignored.

    They want EBT’s business. You nickels are insignificant in comparison, so they don’t care if they piss you off.

    But do people on EBTs hold pro-homo views, or cheer for companies that do this?

    I notice that Kellogg’s discreetly didn’t promote ‘Fruit Loops’ to promote ‘pride’ LOL

    I wonder what would happen if more State governors followed Starbucks’ own example. Starbucks kicked out shareholders who opposed fag marriage: I wonder what would have happened if the Governor of Minnesota told General Mills that they could take their business to a more fag-friendly state?

    Will:
    It looks like after some recent court decisions, that Fag Marriage is going to the US Supreme Court at some point. If SCOTUS overturns the lower courts and the states are free to ban fag marriage again, it’s going to be fun watching all these out-and-proud celebrities, CEOs, churches, and politicians scrambling for cover.

    “At Kellogg, we’re an evolving culture . . . .”

    That sounds like a parody!

    “. . . Kellogg is also the maker of Fruit Loops . . . .”

    Are we sure this isn’t a parody?
    (Ah, Eric beat me to it!)

    @ Eric: LOL! 🙂

    If only politicians had such balls…

    Oh, I hope the U.S. Supreme Court allows state legislatures to make their own decisions. But I won’t hold my breath…

    @ Chillingworth: We live in transparodistic times… (By which I mean beyond parody, of course, though we also live in trans, parodistic times, too. 😉 )

    Great post! I just saw a link here from twitter and I had no idea about a lot of the companies you mentioned.

    I will definitely have to do a bit more research before I just throw my money at people. Thanks for the heads up, and for giving me a few businesses to scratch off my list.

    Hey Remy, welcome!

    Out of curiosity, can you post that tweet here? I’m curious to see who linked us. 🙂

    Yes, there are lots of companies that want the business of those folks and their allies, more than they want ours, enough that they don’t care if they offend us. Which is odd, because they could instead try to offend no-one, and instead appeal to everyone, but they’d rather take a stand. Their privilege, but ours to be aware, and consider whether or not we want our money going into their hands…

    Will:
    Kelloggs apparently also decided promoting ‘Corn Flakes’ might have some negative connotations. LOL

    After reading the links at Keoni’s, I’ll bet that John Harvey Kellogg would have been a strong supporter of homo marriage if he were alive today. Talk about a prog being ahead of his time!

      Kellogg certainly was obsessed with penises and anuses… 😉

    @Eric

    “what would have happened if the Governor of Minnesota told General Mills that they could take their business to a more fag-friendly state?”

    Highly unlikely as the Democrat governor of Minnesota is a particularly vapid fool by the name of Mark Dayton, who supports it wholeheartedly.

    Do not rely on governors in the United States for anything. They have been totally castrated since FDR and federal welfare, with no method of asserting their own sovereignty. As long as vast populations in states are dependent upon checks from the federal government, the states are powerless to defend themselves against progressivism, regardless of their own ideological leanings.

    The potential situation in which a governor may wield some power is in the complete dissolving of the nation and the disintegration of its federal government all together. Governors would potentially (if not overthrown) in this scenario become heads of state. Other than that, the congress, SCOTUS, and president say jump… and the lemmings must respond “how high?:”

    I always thought the jaunty neck bandana was a dead giveaway. So sad. Tony used to be one our most masculine names.

    I know.

    You reminded me George Carlin’s great rant about boy’s names:

    “I’ll bet you anything that ten times out of ten, Nicky, Vinny and Tony will beat the shit out of Todd, Kyle, and Tucker.”

    I love that rant. I was actually thinking of that when I wrote my comment. R.I.P. George. You are missed.

    Mark:
    Dayton is their governor? OMG, that says it all. I’d thought he’d been run out of politics a long time ago.

    I just did a quick search on the Minnesota elections and saw that his chief-of-staff (now Lt. Governor) was the former head of Planned Parenthood.
