Just when you thought it was safe to dunk a delicious cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookie into an ice cold glass of milk, it happens. Your favorite guilty pleasure has gone political. Why, Nabisco, why?
Oreos, the best-selling cookie in the United States, is baking up a special edition of the tasty treats in partnership with the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). The purpose of the limited joint venture is to indoctrinate school children on the use of pronouns as they relate to the LGBTQ community.
We’re proud to celebrate inclusivity for all gender identities and expressions. In partnership with NCTE, we’re giving away special edition Pronoun Packs and encouraging everybody to share their pronouns with #Pride today and every day. pic.twitter.com/z91M2ubQ3k

Share your pronouns with #Pride! The “pronoun packs” will be given to the teachers free of charge. Nabisco and the other parent companies of Oreos, Cadbury, and Mondelez International, have made a political decision to link arms with the NCTE and indoctrinate America’s schoolchildren into the transgender movement. You will be made to think that sexuality is fluid and gender is not limited to male and female even if it requires your children to be used as pawns. The party of science is willing to deny the existence of biological certainties, like chromosomes, in order to appease the politically woke.
As Joy Pullman points out in her piece at The Federalist the NCTE is a “massive organization” with influence over millions of teachers. They are far left political activists.
NCTE is the National Council of Teachers of English. While it sounds benign, this massive organization that affects millions of teachers all over the country—and helped write Common Core—has been politically far leftist for decades. For example, the organization came out against allowing trained teachers to defend themselves from active shooters using licensed guns. Its influence on actual English curriculum has been to degrade instruction with politicization and gobbledygook, according to the most rigorous research. Yet still they keep being treated as credible, just like all the other corrupt education institutions in this country.
You won’t find this rainbow Oreo on your grocer’s shelf. They are only being given away at a large LGBT celebration festival. Nabisco gets all the publicity from a one-time event without any of the standard outrages from consumers unwilling to allow companies to shove a political agenda down their throats, at least not without a fight. It is quite a sneaky sop to our social justice warrior betters. I don’t care which pronoun an adult uses, to be honest, it can be he, she, or (Cousin) It, but I do object when children are used for what amounts to political propaganda, especially at the hands of America’s school teachers. Especially in the case of the youngest students, leave the kids alone.
Besides pandering to the LGBTQ social engineers, Mondelez International is buying up solar power – enough to “produce 10 billion Oreo cookies” a year. How about a little global warming mantra with your cookies?
By agreeing to buy power from an under-construction Texas solar farm, the maker of Cadbury chocolate and Ritz crackers expects to slash 80,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions — or roughly 5% of the company’s 2013 global manufacturing emissions.
The renewable energy purchase reflects Mondelez’s desire to protect its agriculture supply chain from the threat of climate change, the company told CNN Business.
Mondelez International is a part of the “green the grid” movement, along with Facebook, General Motors, Adobe, and Bloomberg to name other big companies.
Those power purchase agreements help pave the way for new renewable energy projects like the Roadrunner solar farm getting built by Enel Green Power North America in Texas, which is where Mondelez is buying solar power.
“Renewables are becoming increasingly price competitive. We’re seeking to support that by scaling up,” Horrell said.
Mondelez estimates the renewable energy purchased is enough to produce more than 50% of all Oreo cookies consumed in the United States annually, or roughly 10 billion cookies.
“The more renewable energy that is produced, the more that fossil fuels are crowded out. These deals work in that direction,” Georgios Papadimitriou, head of Enel Green Power North America, told CNN Business.
I don’t have a problem with companies looking to use renewable energy but who is going to tell them that fossil fuels make the solar industry possible?
