Commentary: Why you should purge Kellogg’s from your pantry

Walk through your local grocery store and you’ll find many Kellogg’s products: Rice Krispies, Pop-Tarts, Pringles, Cheez-Its, Froot Loops, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Corn Flakes, Frosted Flakes, and Special K.

Some of the boxes will tell you that they are sweet and delicious, while others might claim to be heart-healthy.

What Kellogg's products should tell you is that each sale supports open borders, rioting, and radical leftism. This is an indisputable fact, just like the number of calories in a serving.

Each box of Special K that’s sold benefits the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Every conservative knows about George Soros’ support of left-wing activists, but few are aware of just how influential the Kellogg Foundation is. The foundation distributes hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of grants every year. Its immense wealth is due to its large ownership stake in the Kellogg company.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation Trust owns 16% of Kellogg’s. That stock is worth $3.2 billion. The trust uses these assets to fund the foundation. For example, in 2022 the trust funded the Kellogg Foundation with $387 million, according to Influence Watch.

The foundation also has representation on the board of Kellogg’s. Foundation CEO La June Montgomery Tabron has served on the Kellogg Company's board of directors since 2014.

The Kellogg Foundation has supported "beyond policing" research that advocates defunding the police. The foundation’s grants helped launch the Black Lives Matter movement, and it has supported a fund in Philadelphia that bailed out hundreds of rioters in in 2020.

The foundation also funded a $500 monthly income for illegal immigrants, effectively subsidizing law-breaking. It has a long track record of supporting open-borders groups. The foundation gave nearly $900,000 to Tides Advocacy, which helped start the Abolish ICE movement.

Finally, like all left-wing organizations, the Kellogg Foundation has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood.

It’s not just that corporate America makes no effort to appeal to conservative customers. Companies actively use our money to oppose our interests.

If you just take conservative voters from 2020 and break down how much of the nation’s gross domestic product they represent, the cumulative total topped $7 trillion. That would be the third-largest country in the world by GDP, only behind the United States and China. Yet corporate America not only doesn’t market toward us, but it spits in our face by using our money to subsidize left-wing radicals.

Frankly, what Kellogg’s is funding shouldn’t just upset conservatives. What the company is doing is anti-American. Kellogg's is backing movements that the majority of the country opposes. The majority of Americans are opposed to cutting police funding, just as the majority of Americans are opposed to abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

The power of our wallets is immense, and it’s about time we realize that. Conservatives simply should not have Pop-Tarts in their pantry. (There are conservative alternatives to Kellogg’s products on PublicSq.) Unless you are buying Soros-branded cereal, just about any other company is a better choice than Kellogg’s.

Michael Seifert is the founder and chief executive officer of PublicSq, an online marketplace for freedom-loving Americans. Michael is a devoted husband and father. He and his family live in West Palm Beach.
