Exclusive: One Million Moms Alters Consumer’s Comments From Pro-Gay To Anti-Gay, Sends To Oreo



One Million Moms today stands accused by one consumer of fraudulently altering the comments she made in support of Kraft/Nabisco’s LGBT pride rainbow Oreo cookie. One Million Moms, the email-harvesting arm of the anti-gay hate group American Family Association, is encouraging Christian parents to send an email through the One Million Moms website to Kraft/Nabisco denouncing their support of gay rights and LGBT people.

The OMM default email (screenshot, above,) reads:

As a parent and a member of, I am highly offended by your company’s disrespect of millions of American families by supporting the homosexual agenda versus remaining neutral in the cultural war. It’s bad business to take sides, and Oreo has done this by announcing its support of Gay Pride.

If Christians cannot find corporate neutrality with Oreo (Kraft) they will vote with their pocketbook and support companies that are neutral. Selling quality products has nothing to do with a person’s sexual orientation. In attempting to be politically correct, you are offending a huge majority of your customers.

There are plenty of cookies on the market for moms to buy for their families that do not support liberal causes. We have a choice. Kraft Foods, including Oreo, Cadbury, Maxwell House, and Nabisco, will not have my family’s business as a result until you change your stance and decide to no longer cater to homosexuals and their sinful lifestyle choices.

I will not be able to support your corporation until you decide to remain neutral in the culture war. I implore you to consider how your immoral actions affect the youth of our nation.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concerns.

But when Doreen Bologovsky tried to use the One Million Moms website to send Kraft/Nabisco a different message — supporting their efforts embracing equality — she says One Million Moms changed her pro-gay message back to the default, anti-gay text.

Bologovsky, in an email forwarded to The New Civil Rights Movement, writes she went to the One Million Moms website and saw their attack on Oreos and was “incensed.” She adds that the OMM website “had ‘suggested’ text in it, but they said you could change it if you want.”

So boy, did I change it. I changed the whole thing and basically applauded Kraft for their creativity and their support of the effort. At the bottom of the email, there’s a checkbox to have a copy sent to yourself. So I did. Imagine my surprise when the copy came to my email box, and none of my changed text was in there. They had sent the original “suggested” text instead! But this time the email addresses of the Kraft execs was in it so I sent them another one, not as eloquent probably as my first, since now I’m pissed.

O’Haire Bologovsky also tells The New Civil Rights Movement via email:

I’m a huge supporter of LGBT rights, but even moreso, I’m a supporter of free speech, and my dad worked for Nabisco for more than 30 years so Oreos are their own special food group for me. Put all three of those things together and this whole thing just burns me up.

Here’s the message O’Haire Bologovsky says she sent to Kraft/Nabisco the second time:

“I just went to the One Million Moms website and there was a sample email that I was supposed to send to you. I changed the text, and just to be safe, had a copy of the email sent to myself. Imagine my surprise when the “canned” email was sent to you instead of my carefully changed text.

“Please be clear that I do NOT support these fanatics, and instead I applaud you and your company (and your advertising reps) for coming up with such an imaginative way to show your support for love in all its forms. We don’t get to choose who we are attracted to, or fall in love with, and those “million” (probably couple hundred is more like it) moms can stay in their kitchens and bake all the homemade cookies they want. I’m running out to buy more Oreos. Even more now that I see how underhanded they are by not sending the email I typed, and sending their own version instead.”

Monica Cole, Director of One Million Moms, responded to a telephone call from The New Civil Rights Movement and summed up their alteration to “a little bug that needs to be worked out.” Cole, via telephone, offered The New Civil Rights Movement this statement in response:

We have a brand new website. And there’s just a couple of bugs in the new website. We are working to resolve this issue and resolve this problem so that the letters can be sent in others, in [an] individual’s own words. They will be able to change the letter, how they would like to write it, in their own words. We’re in the process of getting that resolved right now and fixing that.

While altering and misrepresenting a consumer’s email statement to a third party may or may not be a violation of federal law (any lawyers out there care to weigh in?) One Million Moms, we assume, does have the legal right to delete comments they don’t like from their Facebook page –and that’s exactly what they did — again. Remember when One Million Moms in May deleted dozens of pro-gay comments on their Facebook post warning that Green Lantern was rebooted as gay? And then they gave up and just deleted the entire entry. And then they disappeared from Facebook altogether for a week. “Vacation bible camp” was their reason…

Well, they’ve done it again, and here’s proof, with our thanks to friend of the blog Jeffrey Feldman, who was kind enough and quick enough to grab these screen shots from the One Million Moms Facebook page he says before they deleted these comments:

The New Civil Rights Movement would like to know: Was your email to Kraft/Nabisco changed by One Million Moms? Have they deleted your comments on their Facebook page? Drop us an email.

Fox News Host Suggests Trump ‘Force’ Court to Throw Him in Jail – by Quoting Him



The Fox News host who targeted a juror serving on Donald Trump’s criminal New York trial is now suggesting the ex-president should violate his gag order and “force” the court to throw him in jail, by quoting the Fox News host.

Jesse Watters came under fire earlier this week for profiling juror number two, sharing possibly identifying information published by a myriad of reporters but then using that information to pass judgment on her ability to serve.

“I’m not so sure about juror number two,” Watters concluded on Fox News.

Jurors, at the judge’s direction, were to remain anonymous, for their protection and the protection of the trial.

The judge excused her, after she said she felt she was not able to be impartial because friends and family were calling her asking if she had been chosen to serve on the Trump trial, after the media blitz.

New York Supreme Court Judge Juan Merchan admonished the press for reporting the information, but some news outlets appeared to ignore his warning.

Watters on Wednesday “did a segment with a jury consultant, revealing details about people who had been seated on the jury and questioning whether some were ‘stealth liberals’ who would be out to convict Trump,” the Associated Press reported.

Trump later posted Watters’ quote on his Truth Social platform, leading some, including New York prosecutors, to ask the judge to cite him for allegedly breaking his gag order.

Judge Merchan ordered Trump to not mention witnesses, jurors, prosecutors, court staff, or the family members of prosecutors and court staff, CNN has reported.

New York prosecutors told Juge Merchan Trump has violated the gag order at least ten times.

“Prosecutor Christopher Conroy described the ‘most disturbing’ example as a social media message Trump posted on Wednesday evening quoting a Fox News host as saying, ‘They are catching undercover Liberal Activists lying to the Judge in order to get on the Trump Jury,'” Politico reports.

That host was Jesse Watters.

Friday afternoon, Watters appeared to egg Trump on, urging the ex-president to violate the gag order.

“I would make them put me in jail,” Watters said on Fox News. “I would have a tweet about something perhaps I said on ‘The Five’ or ‘Jesse Watters Primetime,’ and I would force them to throw me in jail.”

Gaetz: ‘Corrupt’ Republicans Could ‘Take a Bribe’ and Throw House to Dems, Blocking Trump Run



U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) says some of his fellow House Republicans would “take a bribe” to throw the razor-thin GOP majority to the Democrats if a far-right faction calls up a motion to oust Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, allowing Democrats to hand the gavel to the Minority Leader, Hakeem Jeffries. he warned if that happens, Democrats would immediately declare Trump ineligible to be President, pack the U.S. Supreme Court, and pass numerous laws like the American Rescue Plan.

“I do believe in a one seat majority there could be one or two or three of my colleagues who would take a bribe in one form or another in order to deprive the Republicans of a majority at all,” Gaetz said Friday on his podcast (video below.)

He added, “the risk that one or two of my corrupt Republican colleagues might take a bribe, take a walk, feign an ailment and flip this thing to the Democrats is a risk that is too high for me at this time.”

Gaetz’s fellow far-right Florida Republican member of Congress, Anna Paulina Luna, told listeners, “I heard that when, if and when the motion vacate is introduced, that there will be immediate resignations of a couple of more moderate members of Congress. And in the event that that happens, that ultimately means it does go to a Democrat speaker.”

U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) last month filed a “motion to vacate,” which she can use at any time to force a vote to oust the GOP Speaker, Mike Johnson. U.S. Rep. Tim Massie (R-KY) and just today, U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has signed on as co-sponsors.

Congressman Gaetz told listeners if Democrats do take the House through a force vote to remove Johnson, Democrats would “be declaring Donald Trump an insurrectionist and setting up a barrier to him being able to become the president United States.”

“That’ll be their leadoff hitter, and then the chaser to that shot will be a massive spending package that looks a lot more like the American Rescue Plan. They will blow past every concept of every cap ever imagined. You’ll be looking at Universal Basic Income, you could be looking at packing the Supreme Court.”

Jeffries Vows Democrats Will Ensure Ukraine Aid Passes as Johnson Defectors Grow



Democratic House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries vowed Friday the majority of Democrats will support Republicans’ Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan, and Gaza foreign aid legislation as Republican Speaker Mike Johnson lost support of another member of his conference to a faction determined to oust him.

“Democrats will provide a majority of our majority as it relates to funding Israel, humanitarian assistance, Ukraine, and our allies in the Indo Pacific,” Minority Leader Jeffries said. “It remains to be seen what Republicans will do in terms of meeting the national security needs of the American people, but it was important for House Democrats to ensure that the national security bills are going to be considered.”

Despite Republicans having a one-vote majority, more Democrats on Friday voted to move the critical and long-awaited foreign aid bills forward than did Republicans.

The 316-94 vote included 165 Democrats and 151 Republicans voting yes, and 55 Republicans and 39 Democrats voting no.

Axios’ Juliegrace Brufke posted the list of Republicans voting against their party’s legislation.

Calling it a “rare” moment in modern congressional history to have to rely on opposition party votes to pass legislation, BBC News reports Speaker Johnson’s “hold on power is tenuous, and the legislators who oppose him – and his bid to provide aid to Ukraine – occupy some key positions within the House’s power structure.”

Amid the procedural vote to move the foreign aid funding bills forward, U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, a far-right Republican of Arizona, announced he is joining Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and Congressman Tim Massie (R-KY) in formally announcing their will vote to oust Speaker Johnson.

Gosar, like Greene, is reportedly a Christian nationalist. In 2022 CNN reported his “lengthy ties to White nationalists, [a] pro-Nazi blogger and far-right fringe received little pushback for years.”

“We’ve been very honest in our assessment of the situation from the beginning,” Jeffries on Friday also declared. “At the appropriate time as House Democrats, we will have a conversation about how to deal with any hypothetical motion to vacate.”

“Moscow Marjorie Taylor Greene, Massie, and Gosar are quite a group. But central to our conversation is to make sure that the national security legislation in totality is passed by the House of Representatives.”
