First they came for Dunkin’ Donuts, but I said nothing because I preferred Krispy Kreme….
I’m a little late to this party, but it seems that some wingnuts (in fairness, not as many as I would have expected, given the enormity of Krispy Kreme’s crimes) are upset about the use of the word “choice” in Kripsy Kreme’s promotion of its Inauguration free donut giveaway:
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.”
Obviously, this calls for sending Silly Putty to the corporate offices of Krispy Kreme.
