The gap between satire and reality has been completely dissolved in 2023 as it pertains to business decisions. It doesn’t matter how much wokeness is proven to be unprofitable. ESG-driven policies at corporations have demonstrated complete control over the old school desire for profits.
The latest brand to go fully woke is Skittles. The candy company, whose tagline is “Taste the Rainbow,” has advanced even further than than they’ve ever gone in the past with their LGBTQIA+ supremacy embrace by not only bowing to the trans-agenda, but also throwing race into the mix for good measure.
“Black Trans Lives Matter,” reads the packaging on their limited edition “Pride Packs.” The slogan, inspired (forced?) through their longtime partnership with GLAAD, is the most infuriating push they’ve made over the years. According to Daily Mail:
Images of the packet on social media prompted an outpouring of criticism on Twitter today, with many likening the ‘woke’ marketing to Dylan Mulvaney being used in Bud Light advertising.
It’s the fourth year Skittles has teamed up with GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) to ‘support the LGBTQ+ community by amplifying and celebrating their stories’, according to Skittles’ official website.
In a series of limited edition Pride Packs, the candy company has ditched its staple color wheel and opted for a toned-down packet with an illustration.
LibsOfTikTok and other conservatives sounded off on Twitter, saying, “@Skittles is trying to turn your kids into BLM & LGBTQ+ activists. Their packaging also features a drag queen. Skittles have gone completely woke.”
End Wokeness posted, “Skittles has partnered with GLAAD, a group that supports sex procedures for kids. ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ is now on their packaging too, for some reason. You know what to do…”
Spread the word. This is worse than a beer company or even a retailer. This is candy, heavily marketed to children. People can do as they please but when they get into the indoctrination business, it’s time for them to be canceled.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
