    AUSTIN, Texas — Chick-fil-A said Monday that it no longer plans to open a restaurant in the San Antonio airport, even though the Texas city relented after more than a year of legal wrangling that began when some city leaders opposed the fast-food chain getting a spot, citing donations made by company owners to anti-LGBTQ causes. “We are always evaluating potential new locations in the hopes of serving existing and new customers great food with remarkable service.” Chick-fil-A said in a statement. “While we are not pursuing a location in the San Antonio airport at this time, we are grateful...

    Burger King has launched a new advertising campaign in Finland featuring its eponymous mascot sharing a deep kiss with Ronald McDonald, along with the English slogan ‘Love Conquers All’. The image is front and centre on the landing page of the fast food chain’s Finnish website, with various outlets with a focus on advertising showing physical posters at locations such as public bus stops as well. The campaign appears to be in aid of Helsinki Pride Week, which was moved to September from its usual slot due to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. It also appears to have been influenced by...

Hundreds of companies have pledged to stop advertising on Facebook and Instagram for a month-long boycott as a protest of how the social media company has handled hate speech and misinformation. But CNN Business’s analysis based on data from market research firm Pathmatics found most of Facebook’s top 100 advertisers, like Walmart, American Express and Home Depot, have not joined the boycott set to begin Wednesday. Out of the 25 biggest...

    Ben & Jerry’s has put out a call for customers and ice-cream lovers to “dismantle white supremacy” and “grapple with the sins of our past” as sweeping protests over the in-custody death of George Floyd roar on across the country. “All of us at Ben & Jerry’s are outraged about the murder of another Black person by Minneapolis police officers last week and the continued violent response by police against protesters,” they said in a lengthy statement on Tuesday. “We have to speak out. We have to stand together with the victims of murder, marginalization, and repression because of...

    A Department of Defense adviser resigned, effective immediately, from the military's science board citing what he believed to be a violation of conduct from Defense Secretary Mark Esper. In his resignation letter, James Miller Jr., the former under secretary of defense for policy from 2012 to 2014, recalled that he swore an oath of office to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States ... and to bear true faith and allegiance to the same," similar to what the defense secretary had done before he took office. "On Monday, June 1, 2020, I believe that you violated that oath,"...

Rogen posted a photo on Instagram on Monday reiterating his support for the movement, with the caption: “If this is a remotely controversial statement to you, feel free to unfollow me.”

    Following up on companies like Sony, Funimation, and NetherRealm Studios showing their true colors, various other corporations have stepped out of the shadows to openly make it known that they are traitors of peace, and betrayers of the American people. You can find the full list for the Traitors of America here. One of the original instigators of race baiting and sowing the seeds of corporate treason in America, Nike, was also one of the first to start the corporate bandwagon to pit America against itself when they tweeted out the following on May 29th, 2020.

    June used to be one of the best times of the year, it was warm enough to go to the beach, and everyone started having backward parties and cookouts. That is until the month of June was hijacked by gay liberal activist groups like GLAAD who want every company in America to ‘celebrate LGBTQ+ P For Pedopfile Pride Month‘. This year, the rainbow colored Skittles candy will go gray, and a dollar for every pack sold will be donated to GLAAD. Hmm, so I guess of you buy a pack of gray Skittles you are donating by proxy to a...

    Marvel Studios has made no secret that its upcoming fall tentpole “The Eternals” will feature its first openly gay superhero. In a new interview with Logo, “Eternals” actor Haaz Sleiman reveals his character is one half of the gay couple that appears in the movie. Sleiman says his character is “married to the gay superhero Phastos, played by ‘Atlanta’s’ Brian Tyree Henry, and we represent a gay family and have a child.” Marvel’s parent company Disney has promised significant gay moments in past tentpoles only for them to not be too explicit (who can forget the live-action “Beauty and the...

    Nike loves selling kids shoes -- it just doesn't care if they have a home to wear them in. That's the amazing revelation from a new campaign against Tennessee adoption. The sports giant, which is still on a lot of Americans' you-know-what list after dissing the national anthem, isn't doing itself any favors by signing a letter telling Christians to get out of the childcare business. In a letter that was also signed by corporate titans Amazon, Dell, Mars, IKEA, Hilton, Marriott, and others, a collection of national CEOs warned the state that letting faith groups keep their adoption and...

    Switzerland goes to the polls on February 9 in a national referendum that could criminalize homophobia–and Coca-Cola has made the bold move of supporting calls to make the anti-gay hate speech illegal. If the country approves the move, it will criminalize homophobia to the same extent as other forms of discrimination based on race, gender and religion. The Coca-Cola Company in Switzerland has publicly shared support for the initiative. Early indications are that the referendum has the majority support of Swiss voters, says The Local. But the campaign hasn’t been without controversy. The youth wing of the Swiss Peoples Party...

    TORONTO -- The CEO of Maple Leaf Foods spoke out Sunday against the U.S. government, days after an Iranian missile accidentally shot down a jetliner, killing all 176 people on board -- including the family of a company employee. Michael McCain said in a series of tweets that the time since Wednesday's crash has not quelled his anger over what he describes as a "needless, irresponsible series of events in Iran.""U.S. government leaders unconstrained by checks/balances, concocted an ill-conceived plan to divert focus from political woes. The world knows Iran is a dangerous state, but the world found a path...

    One of the several downsides in watching too much football this past weekend was watching too many TV commercials. And although I had grown used to the “stupid white man” trope, now a staple of comic advertising, I was unprepared for AT&T’s impressively racist and sexist “Just OK is not OK” campaign. The larger message of the campaign is that “when it comes to wireless networks, just OK is not OK.” According to some dubious test, AT&T is allegedly “America’s best network.” To launch this concept, AT&T and its marketing geniuses at the Omnicom Group designed a series of scenarios...

    "Legendary investor and Berkshire Hathaway founder and CEO Warren Buffett said it’s high time companies stop acting as moral arbiters, social activists and SJWs — social justice warriors — and instead focus their efforts on their primary responsibility: making money for their shareholders. This comes alongside the announcement that Berkshire Hathaway is pouring about $30 billion into wind turbines and infrastructure in Iowa. The plan, according to Buffett, is to turn the state into “the wind capital of the world, the Saudi Arabia of wind.” Among the corporate consensus these days is a call to be “doing well by doing...

    The Green Bay Packers have come under fire in the pro-life community for making a donation to Planned Parenthood through their charitable arm, the Packers Foundation. In a press release earlier this month, the foundation announced the names of their annual grant recipients, which totaled over $2.05 million. The grant given to Planned Parenthood was one of 192 overall, but the Packers’ unique status among NFL teams, as well as the pro-life make up of the Wisconsin community, have some calling foul. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in the country, committing approximately 330,000 abortions annually, according to its...
