Frito-Lay Introduces Diverse Groups of ‘Cracker Jill’ to Snack lineup at Ball Parks

Published

on

Cracker Jack, a popcorn snack that has been enjoyed for over 125 years, will now be accompanied by “Cracker Jill.” Frito-Lay, the subsidiary of PepsiCo, made the announcement to salute women in sports in a press release:

“After more than 125 years as one of sport’s most iconic snacks, Cracker Jack® is adding a new face to its roster, with the introduction of Cracker Jill™ to celebrate the women who break down barriers in sports.”

Will the “woke” crowd and feminists be happy that a female snack was introduced to even out our sexist, chauvinistic male-dominated society? Or will they be furious that Cracker Jacks and Jills still identify as male and female?

Cracker Jacks have been a staple for spectators to enjoy as part of watching America’s “favorite pastime”, baseball. Soon, stadiums will also be filled with the “Special-edition bags featuring the ‘Cracker Jill.”

“These unique depictions of Jill also celebrate the remarkable diversity throughout the country, as the five Jills were inspired by the most represented ethnicities in the U.S., per data from the U.S. Census Bureau,” the press release noted.

“This collection of Cracker Jill™ packaging was created to coincide with the opening of the 2022 baseball season, but the intention is for Jill to continue to join Sailor Jack as a member of the team roster and part of the brand ethos.”

The company also released a video that features a twist on the iconic song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” with amended lyrics:

“Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jill
No one can stop you if you have the will
So let’s root, root root for her girl’s dream
We’re adding our face to the game
And we’ll run, throw, with never a doubt, it’s a new ball game”

    The irony here is that these companies claim to support women’s sports while insisting that biological men be allowed to compete against them which in turn eliminates women from competing in that sport. The hypocrisy is deafening.

    As usual, the woke can’t create anything original; they can only {gender, ethnicity} swap existing characters.

    Aren’t White people referred to as “CRACKERS” by Black people? Why then, do you have a Black person showing in your ad? Are Black people EATING CRACKERS these days?

    Cracker Jill? Seriously? Who in your Company received a $10 bonus check for thinking up this idea? It’s a bad one, nonetheless. American people have become tired of the nonsensical ways companies are giving in to this wave of misdirected changes across America. I, for one, believe the moment former President Obama gave his blessings to the BLM members visiting the White House there has been an air of intimidation to which CEOs have “given in” to current demands of change. Gay groups have now become the norm to which our young people are exposed and taught to question their own sexual identity. This can not and should not continue. Each generation normally has some POSITIVE changes for America, but the latest young people seem to be bent on doing just the opposite.

Florida Gov Signs Law Making It Illegal To Protest Outside An Individual’s Home

Published

on

Ron DeSantis

On Monday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that makes it a crime to protest outside an individual’s home.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” DeSantis said. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

The law will go into effect on October 1, and once “this law takes effect, law enforcement officers will provide a warning to any person picketing or protesting outside of a dwelling and will make arrests for residential picketing only if the person does not peaceably disperse after the warning. Residential picketing will be punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor,” DeSantis’ office explained.

“It is unlawful for a person to picket or protest before or about the dwelling of any person with the intent to harass or disturb that person in his or her dwelling,” the text of the bill says. “Before a person may be arrested for a violation of this section, a law enforcement officer… or a local, state, federal, or military law enforcement agency must go as near to the person as may be done with safety and shall command any person picketing or protesting before or about the dwelling of a person to immediately and peaceably disperse. If any such person does not thereupon immediately and peaceably disperse, he or she may be arrested for a violation of this section.”

The new law comes in response to leftist protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices following the leak of a draft of a Supreme Court majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.

“Roughly 100 protesters appeared outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, where they carried signs and chanted slogans before walking a half-mile to Chief Justice John Roberts’s home, then back to Kavanaugh’s home, where police ordered them to leave the area,” The Washington Examiner reported last week.

Pelosi Snaps When Asked About Baby Formula Shortage

Published

Nancy Pelosi

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped when asked about comments from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who criticized President Biden’s decision to send baby formula to the southern border as the United States suffers from a baby formula shortage.

“Joe Biden continues to put America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border as American families face empty shelves,” Stefanik wrote on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. American mothers and their babies shouldn’t suffer because of the #BidenBorderCrisis.”

Pelosi was asked about Stefanik’s comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi said. “Babies are crying. We need to get them food. And the president has — now what we’re doing this week in the Congress is, again, Bobby Scott, chair of the Education and Labor Committee, that’s the jurisdiction that will lower some of the regulations, et cetera, so that it’s easier to buy it… We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies. But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”

Stefanik responded to Pelosi on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”
