You would think that when hit over the head with a baseball bat, folks would remember it and learn not to do whatever it was that immediately preceded that moment. But now, folks Leaning Hard Left seem to be collectively Very Slow Learners.
After the KuperJerk decided to politicize football, the NFL has posted surprisingly low viewer stats and ESPN is in freefall with about 1 million ‘cord cutters’ in the last 2 months. Trump mentioned the NFL falloff, but attributed it to folks wanting to watch The Trump Show of the election instead of football, while I think Trump is important in the whole process, I think it was the S.F.Jerks On Parade Knee that caused a lot of folks to just ask “IF I’m not going to be watching that shit, why do I need to pay for ESPN?”…
So out comes Kellogg’s who decides to pull their advertising from Breitbart. Did they not notice we had this big election and PC Genuflect Bought The Farm?
BTW, no ‘trigger warning’, if you can’t get by without it, get out.
It’s really really simple. In the morning, grumping my way to the kitchen and trying to remember to put coffee in the maker BEFORE turning it on, the very LAST thing I want to see or have shoved in my face is Political Assholes. YOU have made Tony The Tiger into a Political In My Face Asshole and he is now banned from my home.
Oh, and that goes for your stupid dog too, or whatever other products you make.
We, the Average Joe and Average Jane have put up with this Protest Shit to the absolute limit, and we were pushed past that. It’s now broken. That means full on war. Yes, you have a pissed Germanic-Celt in your grill. I’ll “forgive and forget” in about 20 years.
When I Die.
In one simple stupid move, you have alienated about 1/2 of the country. That is called being a dumb shit and a dick head. Hopefully your board will fire your collective asses.
Now we’ve watched “your side” do all kinds of stupid Street Theatre Protests and break things and generally be little children in a tantrum, and we patiently waited for the police to change your diapers. Lately, the Police have been mostly standing around for photo-ops as you break things, but that will hopefully change soon. We’ve also sat back while The Left boycotted all sorts of things, driving cake makers and barbers into ruin. No More.
First step is just “Tit For Tat”, then it will be “Two Tits for one Tat”. You don’t want to see what comes after that.
So you boycott? We boycott. You are now persona non grata.
Don’t let the door hit you on your way to the garbage can.
Some Quotes from Breitbart
Kellogg’s Stock Drops Another 1.44% at End of Thursday Trading
Kellogg’s shares (NYSE: K) dropped 1.44% on Thursday, the day after accusations of child labor exploitation and the launch of Breitbart News’ #DumpKelloggs campaign brought the snack company’s value down 2%.
Kellogg’s stock fell $1.04 to close at $70.96 per share. The combined two-day drop has been $2.66 per share, down 3.6% from $73.62 at the start of Wednesday trading.
That is only the start.
On Wednesday, Yahoo! contributors Alexis Christoforous and Rick Newman suggested that Kellogg’s decision to publicly disavow Breitbart was not a smart one. Christoforous declared, “Cereal needs to be agnostic.” Newman said, “This is just not what companies want to do… Does Kellogg’s basically want to say, ‘We don’t want anybody who belongs to the conservative side of the spectrum to eat our cereal’? I don’t think so. They probably wish they had done this differently.”
No Shit Sherlock!? Do we really need to spell it out to these folks that they need to STFU on Politics when at work? The Left has already parasitized and functionally broken Government and Education (not to mention a huge number of “Foundations” who’s founders would never have wanted their wealth to go to The Left). The result has been a Trumplash of Government, the Dept of Education to be euthanized shortly…
Does Kellogg’s wish to join the line just behind the Dept. of Educrats?…
BTW, Breitbart has a dump Kellogg’s petition up, for folks who do the petition thing. Me? I just don’t feed the idiots at Kellogg’s any of my money.
Gail, in a comment here:
included a link to the Kellogg’s brand portfolio. Here’s what is NOT going into my shopping cart.
Kellogg's Pringles Cheezit Keebler Austin Mother's Morningstar Carr's Gardenburger Murray Sugar Free Famos Amos Frosted Mini-Wheats Pop-Tarts Chips Deluxe Eggo Krave Townhouse
I’ve not bothered to list the specific cereals like Froot Loops, Corn Pops, All-Bran, Fiber Plus, Nutrigrain, et. al. as they typically have “Kellogg’s” emblazoned on them too. If in doubt, hit the link and check out your favorite brands.
BTW, I do not endorse throwing the product out if you already own it. You do NOT want to spike cereal sales buying a replacement. Just use it up and buy a different brand next time you shop. Post is good. Generics may be made by them, so you might need to verify who makes a particular generic (check the site code in the zebra stripe or look at point of origin on the package).
Me? I’m happy to eat oatmeal and malto-meal and just skip the whole category, or have bacon and eggs for a while.
Home made French Toast is another great alternative.
IF time permits, I’ll put up some of my favorite breakfast foods to replace cereals and toaster pastries. I’d also bet a quick web search would turn up lots of “DIY” Pop-Tart Replacements…
Some Interesting Charts
Looks like Kellogg’s is the “Special K” of stocks at the moment:
(For those not familiar with American Slang, the drug Ketamine is sometimes called “Special K”, as are those who use it and become stuporous with uncontrolled body movements. This has now generalized to anyone not all together functional and ‘not all there’… used as an insult, as in “How you doin’ today Special K?” and yes, it’s a Kellogg’s brand.)
While it has generally been on a downtrend lately (since July) the last two days have been a pretty quick kick in the rear.
Price under the SMA stack, MACD below zero and weaving, DMI ‘red on top’. A stock to stay out of. “Sell ’em if you got ’em”.
Disney took a big hit on some missed numbers from ESPN. (Gee… I wonder why…)
It crashed last February, did the Dead Cat Bounce through June, retested the low in October, and held, then started a (tepid) recovery.
It is presently price above the SMA stack (that is having a crossover to the right order) and MACD above zero and looking to weave sideways. It might well crossover to the downside as price ‘kisses’ the SMA stack (that would be an ideal time to buy) and DMI is ‘blue on top’.
The indicators say to buy Disney at this point and more on any pullback. Right now it’s a bit far from the SMA stack, so I’d expect a pull back to the ideal buy point, but that could come $10 higher, so I’d “scale in” with 1/2 a buy now and 1/2 on any pull back.
As the ESPN thing broke well before the Kellogg’s Frosted Feet In Mouth, Special K (ellogg’s) can expect more downside before being in “buy” territory as a stock. I’d wait at least 6 months to see how far sales fall off, and if folks simply never return once they tried the alternative. (Frankly, I like Walmart’s Double Raisin Bran better than anything Kellogg’s labeled, but I don’t know who makes it. Even if it is a Kellogg’s relabel, the profit margin to Kellogg’s will be way thin, as Walmart really crushes vendors margins.)
Dear Progressive Entitled Aristocracy,
We, The Deplorables, have been busy sharpening our pitchforks and getting the tar hot for the last few years. Plucking chickens and turkeys and saving up the fluff for a good moment. Now Trump has lit the torches and we’re milling around looking for someone who’s pissed us off for the last few years to, as Ricky put it, ‘splain things to ’em.
I strongly suggest that you ‘get clue’ and do that ‘getting it’, as my Texas Uncle says “Right Quick”. We’re done waiting.
Those of you who don’t get clue, and decide to poke this beast, please form a line to the East. We’ll get to you as quickly as we can. As there are several million of us, it ought not be a long wait. K took a hit inside the same day, and we’re just getting started. NFL and ESPN have been dropping for months now. So no need to pick a number, we can parallel process your asses into the slime pit. Just stay back from the polite company on our side as we don’t like to clean up splattered tar, loose feathers, or dripping slime.
Deplorable At Large.
(I have a wallet and I’m not afraid to use it…)
