Have You Signed The “Dump Kellogs” Petition Yet?

Well, I’m a little late to the party …. sort of.  I signed the petition days ago.  For some reason, I failed to post about this, here.

For those who don’t read Breitbart, let me give you some background on why you should sign the pledge to dump Kelloggs.

Apparently, Kelloggs was advertising with Breitbart.  After the election, and, most likely with some prompting by some idiot leftards, Kelloggs informed Breitbart that they would no longer be advertising with them because they are not “aligned with our values as a company.”

To be sure, some of Breitbart’s values are not aligned with mine, either.  However, they do present an important perspective and a different point of view. 

While it is certainly within Kelloggs right and prerogative to advertise with whomever they choose, I find the reasoning a bit abhorrent.  This is, quite literally, Kelloggs caving to people who wish to silence free speech and a free press.  They knew they were caving to such vermin even before they sent their message to Breitbart. 

For far too long the left has used businesses and corporations as a bludgeon against non-leftarded perspectives and views.  I believe it is past time to give these businesses a real decision to make.  They’re worried about a letter signed by a couple thousand leftards?  They’re going to cave and become complicit in the left’s attack on the free press and speech?  That’s fine.  But, there should be a cost exacted for such cowardice. 

Corporations such as Kelloggs should do everything they can to be apolitical.  When they start becoming political tools, then, the people should respond.

    My Kellogg’s boycott began years ago with my diabetes diagnosis. But I signed a few days ago anyway.

    Exactly. Companies should focus on making their products great and not on politics. The longer the stand-off continues, the worst for Kelloggs is.
    I used to buy from time to time Pringels, but I replaced it with nuts in my diet ;). Better taste and healthier for same price.

      Agreed, and in an ideal world, they wouldn’t. Since we don’t live in an ideal world and we live in a world where governments can pick and choose winners or losers in business; well, you know what will come from that.

      I most certainly will ‘boycott’ suppliers that I have no desire to do business with, especially when they return the favor In a political manner (thus No to Apple, No to Square Enix, No to Kellogg’s and No to a host of others).
