AFA defends news website defending itself

Breitbart imagePro-family group American Family Association is defending a right-wing news website and its pushback against a major corporation.

Kellogg's announced in November that it was dropping advertising on Breitbart.com, citing accusations of racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism among its news stories and commentaries.

The news website has pushed back, however, announcing a boycott and accusing left-wing groups of attacking Breitbart after now-former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon (pictured below) joined Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

A spokesman for the American Family Association says the Mississippi-based ministry is "applauding" Breitbart for boycotting Kellogg's, a corporate giant best known for its breakfast cereals.

Steve Bannon (Trump advisor)"... Kellogg's has shown how utterly intolerant they are of anyone's viewpoint other than their own," AFA spokesman Walker Wildmon says by way of explanation.

AFA is known for past boycotts, too, including an ongoing boycott of Target stores due to a liberal corporate policy that caters to transgendered employees and customers.

AFA is also familiar with left-wing scare tactics, since the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center has designated AFA a "hate group."

Writers at Breitbart.com wrote glowingly about Trump during the presidential campaign, drawing criticism from fellow conservatives about its editorial content. Yet the website drew little attention from the Left until Bannon was named an advisor to Trump in the final months of the campaign. 

OneNewsNow reported this week how the Clinton campaign is accusing Trump, with Bannon's help, of running a campaign literally based on racism and white supremacy. 

In an online story, Jewish writer David Horowitz answers CNN's criticism of Breitbart.com for a headline that included the words "renegade Jew." 


"In fact," Horowitz explains in a post-election story, "neither Breitbart nor Bannon is responsible for that statement. A Jew is. I wrote the article, which was neither requested nor commissioned by Breitbart. And I wrote the headline: “Bill Kristol, Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew.'"

Horowitz was criticizing "Never Trumper" Kristol in the story, which CNN ommitted from its story. 

Kellogg's obviously has the right to pick and choose where it advertises, Wildmon tells OneNewsNow, and that's also the case with Breitbart.com.

"Our counterpoint," he says, "is that Americans also have the right to choose which products they buy, and in this case Breitbart is encouraging their supporters to not buy Kellogg's products."
