Oreo cookies unveiled on Sunday a special LGBT edition of its iconic product, urging pride in making people use one’s “preferred pronouns.”
“We’re proud to celebrate inclusivity for all gender identities and expressions,” the company, a division of international foods giant Nabisco, wrote in a Facebook post, the Federalist reported.
The announcement said that in partnership with the National Council of Teachers of English, the NCTE, “we’re giving away special edition Pronoun Packs and encouraging everybody to share their pronouns with Pride today and every day.”
Joy Pullman, the Federalist’s executive editor, noted in her column the NCTE affects millions of teachers nationwide and helped write the controversial, left-leaning Common Core curriculum.
The NCTE is against allowing trained teachers to defend themselves from active shooters using licensed guns, she noted.
And 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.”
Pullman, the author of “The Education Invasion: How Common Core Fights Parents for Control of American Kids,” said NCTE’s promotion of the “pronoun packs” only “makes publicly obvious what has been true about NCTE for decades.”
“This is not just limited to NCTE, but is true of most of the major organizations involved in K-12 and higher education that exist under the cover of professional associations.
She said Oreo’s repeated responses to positive comments in its Facebook post “made clear they’re taking sides in the culture war against half of America.”
