The perverts running the once-iconic fast food chain, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) have evidently become so triggered by the White Christian Male symbol of the late Colonel Harlan Sanders that they've decided to replace him with a female. Lesbian has-been singer Reba McEntire---whose career has plummeted to doing commercials---was chosen to be the newest KFC 'spokesperson'.
KFC went down the drain a long time ago. No doubt someone at Corporate HQ decided a good sociopolitical controversy would generate some free advertising. It certainly no longer is the quality of their food that attracts consumers. This is a fast-food chain which really should give away free Alka-Seltzer with purchase.
It's really sad in a way. Harlan Sanders was a man who got off to a bad start in life. He later converted to Christianity and settled down; opening a fried chicken-stand in Kentucky. He employed the fast-food model to chicken dinners---which 'experts' in the 1960s said couldn't be done. Sanders did it; and built a business empire that ranked with products like Coca-Cola and Hershey's Chocolate as symbolically American. Throughout the rest of his life, he maintained strict quality controls---often by paying surprise on-the-spot visits to his franchisees. And his conversion to Christianity was genuine. He often gave testimonies and speeches at various churches and youth camps free-of-charge.
But in Postmodern America, men like Colonel Sanders have gone the way of things like chicken dinners with real meat and potatoes. Today KFC is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands. Open Secrets shows Yum! to be a heavy political contributor to pro-Corporate RINOs like Mitch McConnell and Jeff Flake (top contributor to both Senators).
Yum! also runs Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and Wing Street chains. KFC is headed by a foreign national, Australian Roger Eaton. Eaton is the COO at Yum! and Director of the Molson-Coors brewery conglomerate. Both beers used to be good, too, by the way.
The effete cultural Elites are naturally giddy with excitement over KFC's bold decision. The sleazy tabloid Salon even went so far as to call KFC's critics 'trolls'.
In reality, KFC is going down the same road as the NFL. They're desperately trying to stay culturally relevant by making flamboyant politically-correct statements like these to attract the kinds of customers who think that eating at a PC diner is making some grand political statement. Another reason to avoid KFC---besides the bad and overpriced food---is having to put up with the kinds of people who think that gender-bending company mascots is a noble act.
But don't despair. There's always Chick-Fil-A and they have better chicken anyhow.
