Krispy Kreme Joins The Right Wing Hunger Strike

Right wing conservatives are boycotting foods almost too quickly for us to keep track. We just got finished reviewing the American Family Association's beef with Campbell's Soup, and while we weren't looking the American Life League made a grab for the spotlight by announcing that they're mad at Krispy Kreme.

So, what did the delicious doughnut makers do to incur the wrath of the ALL? Did they donate thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood? Run an ad in The Advocate featuring a lesbian couple enjoying doughnuts with their kids? No, I'm afraid it's much more sinister than that. Believe it or not, the people at Krispy Kreme actually had the nerve to...use the phrase "freedom of choice" in a press release about their Inauguration Day free doughnut promotion. I know! Can you believe they thought they'd get away with such a radical political statement? Good thing the ALL is watching out for this sort of thing. Here's their press release:


The following is a statement from American Life League president, Judie Brown.

"The next time you stare down a conveyor belt of slow-moving, hot, sugary glazed donuts at your local Krispy Kreme you just might be supporting President-elect Barack Obama's radical support for abortion on demand – including his sweeping promise to sign the Freedom of Choice Act as soon as he steps in the Oval Office, Jan. 20.

The doughnut giant released the following statement yesterday:

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American's sense of pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By doing so, participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an oath to tasty goodies -- just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet "free" can be.

Just an unfortunate choice of words? For the sake of our Wednesday morning doughnut runs, we hope so. [Isn't "unfortunate choice of words" an unfortunate choice of words for the ALL, considering that this is a press release condeming Krispy Kreme for using the word choice?] The unfortunate reality of a post Roe v. Wade America is that "choice" is synonymous with abortion access and celebration of 'freedom of choice' is a tacit endorsement of abortion rights on demand.

President-elect Barack Obama promises to be the most virulently pro-abortion president in history. Millions more children will be endangered by his radical abortion agenda. Celebrating his inauguration with "Freedom of Choice" doughnuts – only two days before the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision to decriminalize abortion – is not only extremely tacky, it's disrespectful and insensitive and makes a mockery of a national tragedy.

A misconstrued concept of "choice" has killed over 50 million preborn children since Jan. 22, 1973. Does Krispy Kreme really want their free doughnuts to celebrate this "freedom.""

As of Thursday morning, Communications Director Brian Little could not be reached for comment. We challenge Krispy Kreme doughnuts to reaffirm their commitment to true freedom – to the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – and to separate themselves and their doughnuts from our great American shame."

We encourage groups like the American "Life" League and the American "Family" Association to spend as much time and energy as possible working on ridiculous, useless, stupid protests like this one. Maybe while they're focused on this crap, the rest of us can actually make some progress.

Really now, can't the AFA and the ALL find more productive activity than trying to halt social progess?

This is hilarious and infuriating. I am glad they are wasting their time on this, though. (and I'll be sure to stop by a Krispy Kreme and support abortion on Tuesday!!!!!)

Speaking of which, can't wait for Obama's speech.

From a medical point of view, a diet of donuts is far more dangerous to the woman than an abortion.
