General Mills celebrates LGBT Pride with Lucky Charms-inspired campaign
New York Daily News ^ | June 28, 2013 | Victoria Taylor

Posted on 06/30/2013 1:31:07 PM PDT by Salman

Lucky Charms is perhaps the perfect cereal to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Pride since it already includes a rainbow.

General Mills and advertising agency McCann Always On saw their chance and used the colorful marshmallow as the face of their #LuckytoBe campaign, which asks people to use the hashtag to post pictures and tweets about what makes them, well, lucky.

"We're celebrating Pride month with whimsical delight, magical charms, and two new rainbow marshmallows," the company said on the campaign website. "If you're lucky enough to be different, we're celebrating you."

A children’s cereal, how appropriate for the homos and pedophiles. I just told my son, who likes Lucky Charms, that there will not be anymore in our house.

I’m lucky to have seen this posted because I’ll never buy another General Mills product. Recruiting fresh meat for the perverts by pushing the homosexual agenda on the children is despicable.

If you’re lucky enough?
IF YOU’RE LUCKY ENOUGH?!

What kind of bullsh*t world are we living in when this disgustingly immoral perversion that serves ZERO biological function, which condemns people to early graves and dangerous lifestyles, is considered to be ‘lucky’.

Chuck you, Lucky Charms. I will never buy your crap again.

Kind of wonder who is making these decisions.
If approx (I will be very generous here) 20% of the population is gay, 20% don’t really give a rats arse (which means some will go either way (voting that is))and say 45% of the population would just as soon see this ‘community’ disbanded etc Why would you ‘risk’ 50%+ of your market by catering to the (supposed) 20%?

BLOODLESS COUP. Not a damn thing being done about it either.

I walked away from General Mills when they went pro-sodomy during the Minnesota sodomy vote.

I avoid their products whenever I can in the grocery store. They don’t need my money.

DUMP GENERAL MILLS

Website from the National Organization for Marriage

http://www.dumpgeneralmills.com/

I never thought that by eating Cheerios for breakfast I would be supporting gay marriage. Your decision to pander to same-sex marriage activists has forced me to choose between your food products and my conscience. As long as food is produced by other companies my conscience is going to win out over the desire for another bowl of Lucky Charms. Until you stop supporting this radical social agenda I must, in good conscience, look for substitutes that I can purchase instead of the following brands.

Betty Crocker
Good Earth
Muir Glen
Big G Cereals
Green Giant
Nature Valley
Bisquick
Haagen-Dazs
Old El Paso
Bugles
Hamburger Helper
Pillsbury
Cascadian Farm
Jus-Rol
Pillsbury Atta

Cheerios
Kix
Progresso
Chex
Knack & Back
Total
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
La Saltena
Totino’s/Jeno’s
Diablitos Underwood
Larabar
Trix
Fiber One
Latina
V. Pearl

Food Should Taste Good
Liberte
Wanchai Ferry
Frescarini
Lucky Charms
Wheaties
Fruit Snacks
Macaroni Grill
Yoplait
Gardetto’s
Monsters
Yoplait France
Gold Medal
Mountain High

Your diversity policy claims to respect “not just the primary areas such as gender, race and sexual orientation – but also cultural aspects including values, preferences, beliefs, and communication styles.” However, your public opposition to the Minnesota Marriage Amendment overtly disrespects the values and beliefs of many of your employees. To avoid misleading the public and potential employees regarding the true position of General Mills, I ask that you remove this misrepresentation from your website and any written materials unless or until you decide to actually follow through on your commitment to true diversity.

It’s not the role of corporate management to unilaterally endorse a controversial political issue unrelated to a company’s core business – particularly when doing so will alienate a large percentage of customers, employees and shareholders. I urge you to reconsider your decision to support same-sex marriage and to publicly oppose the Minnesota Marriage Amendment.

No more General Mills products will come into my home. There are plenty of other brands. With luck, some of the others will stay apolitical or better yet espouse healthy values. Pride? Pride? What the dickens is there to be proud of? That the practitioners of homosexuality overcame their revulsion to keep putting it in the location for human excrement? Big whoop. Not even a mother could ever be proud of this suicidal addition, no matter how much the politically correct propagandists tell her to be proud. The most insane case of double talk on record is the adoption of the word “pride.” Or maybe it’s really a shorthand for “Pride goeth before a fall.”

There’s a list of brands not to buy - send it to your friends! There’s also a link at the bottom of the page to contact them and you can let them know what a great idea it was to celebrate perversion using a children’s cereal. Schmucks!!!!

Lucky Charms is (WAS) my favorite cereal. I know I can’t stop buying from every company that supports the Sodomites, but I can sure stop buying from the ones that want to stick their “pride” in my eye. That’s why I will never, ever buy another Oreo cookie—ever. That’s also why J.C. Penney will never see another dime from me. Yeah. I really do hold grudges against companies that join my cultural enemies, just like homosexuals target good companies, like Chick-fil-A.

Who buys Lucky Charms but the parents of very young children? Their demographic leans much more wanting to think well of themselves for their ‘inclusiveness’.
