The Kellogg Company has once again revealed its true political colors—deep blue, in this case—which are not values that are shared by a majority of the country, based on the most recent election results.
As reported by Breitbart, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation gave money to the far-Left Center for American Progress, founded by John Podesta, head of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s failed bid for the White House, and subject of so many emails released by WikiLeaks.
In addition, the Kellogg Foundation gave money to another organization, the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, which also lists Podesta as a founder. In all, the Kellogg Foundation gave nearly $2 million to the two organizations.
Breitbart noted that the foundation is the namesake nonprofit wing of the Kellogg Company, which just weeks ago pulled all of its advertising from Breitbart News, stating officially that Breitbart is not “aligned with our values as a company.”
In other words, Breitbart’s fearless reporting is too much for the liberal snowflakes at the cereal giant to bear.
The Kellogg nonprofit describes itself as being “founded in 1930 as an independent, private foundation by breakfast cereal pioneer Will Keith Kellogg” and “among the largest philanthropic foundations in the United States.”
In addition, the nonprofit foundation says it’s mission is to “create conditions for vulnerable children so they can realize their full potential in school, work and life”—as defined by the foundation’s board members, apparently. No word on whether Will Keith’s values align with those of the company he founded as it is today.
What is clear is that the foundation has established a pattern of giving to far-Left groups, including Podesta’s Center for American Progress, which was described by far-Left ‘news’ site Politico as “the leading progressive think tank in Washington”—‘progressive’ being a code word for regressive liberal authoritarianism.
In the months leading up to the November elections, WikiLeaks released tens of thousands of emails and other communiques. Among other things we discovered that Podesta was inappropriately close to some members of the now-discredited ‘mainstream’ media, including reporters with CNBC (John Harwood), The New York Times (Mark Leibovich), and Politico (Maggie Haberman).
We also discovered from the email dumps that the Clinton campaign was actually hoping that Trump would win the GOP nomination, because they were so confident she would beat him. And we learned just how close to Wall Street Clinton was, regarding several speeches she gave to financial houses worth millions of dollars.
As for the Kellogg Company, Breitbart has urged its 45 million unique monthly readers to boycott the company.
