KFC replaces white, southern Col. Sanders with white, socialist Bernie Sanders – contingent upon $15 minimum wage


KFC has had enough of the white man with the white beard in the white suit telling millions of often non-white customers to lick their fingers in the coronavirus era. So, the fried chicken staple of southern cuisine is moving forward with a bold new campaign to guarantee that chickens won't be the only ones feeling the Bern.

On Tuesday, KFC's parent company, Yum! Brands, announced a total brand redesign for the $5 billion fast food chain. "After nearly 70 years as the face of 'finger lickin' good'", Yum! Brands CEO David Gibbs said in a statement, "we believe Colonel Harland Sanders has earned his retirement."

"After nearly 70 years as the face of 'finger-lickin' good... we believe Colonel Harland Sanders has earned his retirement."

But a quick look online suggests that the true motive behind this massive rebranding goes much deeper than the corporate giant's sweet send away alludes to.

Last month, KFC joined a drove of mega-companies, from Coca-Cola to Delta Airlines, to lambast Texas and Georgia's Republican-supported voting bills as the epitome of 21st century Jim Crow. But while the companies hurled threats of boycotts, strongly worded statements, and other corporate equivalents of flipping the bird, KFC was thrown into a fire of its own.

Online progressive activists quickly called out the company for its alleged hypocrisy. One blue check Twitter user wrote, "Priceless. The whitest face in fast food thinks it isn't part of the problem. Remind us what former slave state you're from, Colonel? #KKKFC"

Some Black Lives Matter activists also insisted KFC was propagating a "harmful anti-black stereotype" by using a white, southern man to sell buckets of fried chicken.

And others resurfaced KFC's own comments from back in June 2020. At the time, fellow culinary brands like Aunt Jemima, Cream of Wheat, and Uncle Ben's Rice were busy announcing plans to retire their mascots amid the nationwide reckoning over race. While KFC made no such promises at the time, it did make one comment.

On June 3, 2020, the chain's official account tweeted out, "We support our Black team members, partners, and customers. We are committed to using our voice to speak up, but more importantly, using this time to listen, learn, and act to create positive social change. We have to do more. We will do more."

However, as of March 27, 2021, when activists on Twitter reminded the company of its commitment, no "more" had been done. So, in response to the blowback, KFC released another statement:

"KFC is committed to action, not just words, to address racism toward the Black community. We don't have all the answers yet, but we're listening, learning, and getting started. And we've heard you. KFC is aware of and apologizes for the harm we have caused through our branding and are committed to righting this wrong."

However, the company's new face may prove to be no less controversial. In its official rebranding statement, KFC announced that as a sign of its commitment to change, healing, and equity, the chain has signed an agreement with a much more anti-racist, but no less old and white man named "Sanders" — Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Senator Sanders only agreed to license his likeness to KFC if the company raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour.

But the agreement didn't come for free. According to sources with knowledge of the deal, Senator Sanders only agreed to license his likeness to KFC if the company raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour and provided every employee with Medicare.

Indeed, KFC's press release does go on to boast of a new $15 an hour minimum wage for all employees. But plans to instate Medicare for all were not included. Instead, KFC announced that its current healthcare plan is now available for even part-time workers to opt in.

Senator Sanders' office could not be reached for comment on whether KFC's expanded healthcare plan satisfies his Medicare for All demand. But

Bernie's Twitter page suggests that it likely did. Early this morning, Sanders' account unveiled KFC's new logo, sporting his now-officially trademarked curmudgeonly face, along with the simple caption:


But chances are, you have already thought twice about whether this story could possibly be real. Thankfully, this time, KFC's more conservative fans are spared a trip to Popeye's. But it does beg the question: In today's world, would you even bat an eye if it was true?

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
