Let's take a minute to go down the rabbit hole (or doughnut hole, in this case) with yet another bizarre fundie press statement...

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, like every other business in the country, is looking to get in on all of the inauguration Obama-mania. On Inauguration Day, all customers can get one free doughnut:

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American's sense of pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By doing so, participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an oath to tasty goodies -- just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet 'free' can be."

Sound like a sweet deal? Not to the American Life League, who took the simple promotion to be the pushing of "Pro-Abortion Doughnuts" because they used the word choice in their statement. Makes perfect sense, right?

The full, rather hilarious American Life League press release after the jump...

KRISPY KREME CELEBRATES OBAMA WITH PRO-ABORTION DOUGHNUTS

The following is a statement from American Life League president Judie Brown:

"The next time you stare down a conveyor belt of slow-moving, hot, sugary glazed donuts at your local Krispy Kreme, you just might be supporting President-elect Barack Obama's radical support for abortion on demand - including his sweeping promise to sign the Freedom of Choice Act as soon as he steps in the Oval Office, Jan. 20.

The doughnut giant released the following statement yesterday:

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American's sense of pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By doing so, participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an oath to tasty goodies -- just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet "free" can be.'

"Just an unfortunate choice of words? For the sake of our Wednesday morning doughnut runs, we hope so. The unfortunate reality of a post Roe v. Wade America is that 'choice' is synonymous with abortion access, and celebration of 'freedom of choice' is a tacit endorsement of abortion rights on demand.

President-elect Barack Obama promises to be the most virulently pro-abortion president in history. Millions more children will be endangered by his radical abortion agenda. Celebrating his inauguration with 'Freedom of Choice' doughnuts - only two days before the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision to decriminalize abortion - is not only extremely tacky, it's disrespectful and insensitive and makes a mockery of a national tragedy. A misconstrued concept of 'choice' has killed over 50 million preborn children since Jan. 22, 1973. Does Krispy Kreme really want their free doughnuts to celebrate this 'freedom.'

As of Thursday morning, communications director Brian Little could not be reached for comment. We challenge Krispy Kreme doughnuts to reaffirm their commitment to true freedom - to the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - and to separate themselves and their doughnuts from our great American shame.

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Julie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.

Wow. Seriously?

Somehow they got from "taking an oath to tasty goodies" to "pro-abortion doughnuts" connected to "our great American shame"? That's some leap or logic... Or lack thereof.

I wonder if these groups know that putting out nutty statements like this only make them seem more out of touch and ridiculous or if they really think it makes an impact.

I so want to grab a bunch of friends and mob a KK donut shop the day after and eat lots of donuts as a thank you.

I know! Like I needed another reason to eat Krispy Kremes...

As devoted as I am to women's choice, I am not a fan of doughnuts

It's not that I don't like doughnuts. They don't like me.

NOOOOOOO!!!! I cannot eat Krispy Kreme's, Waymon. I will not eat them in a car. I will not eat them after scoring par. I will not eat them in a truck. I will not eat them after a.........(not going there). I will not eat them at allllll (heels leaving black marks on the pavement while being dragged towards the donut shop.......

Gimme a dozen chocolate glazed!

I'll eat them all at once. With chocolate milk.

Culinary crack.

As for the American Life League, the leaders of that organization have obviously lost their minds. I recommend prefrontal lobotomies for them, immediately, for their own protection. They are a clear danger to themselves whenever they attempt to think.

The content of this article triggered a "stop abortion on demand" ad on my browser. Just thought you'd like to know.

If you notice the fine print on the PR this group is not as pro life as they would like to seem. The do condone the state sanctioned homicide of prisoners (innocent human beings).

They don't support abortion, allowing the child to grow up in a bad situation. Then that child, as an adult, takes a life and they support killing him then. "Late term abortionists." And, two lives are lost.

They don't have KrispyKreme in my neighborhood, have one for me please.

Ha, me too, on the browser issue. It's funny how these things work.

Even better? It's bringing up coffee and doughnut ads for me.

I saw this item and thought it was just too funny. They just really don't like the idea of free choice, autonomy, or freedom, do they?

Heading out the door now to my nearest Krisy Kreme shop. Hope i get there just as the 'Hot, Fresh Donuts' sign gets lit up.

I already found about this several days ago, and every time I hear about it, it just makes me want donuts that much more.

I'm planning on hitting the local KK location on Tuesday. I'm lucky enough to live about ten minutes from one of the biggest shopping centers in the city, which has a Krispy Kreme within its boundaries.

Hopefully I can get my fetus donuts fresh - if the sign isn't on, I'm not going in.

Is this a sign of things to come?

I mean really, has the right wingnuts finally slipped a gear and gone totally around the bend with the impending inauguration of Obama? Since they have lost the white house and congress, with the wingnut in chief about to fade into the background, they readying their rhetorical poison pens to skewer everything related to Obama and his administration, trying to rev up their followers in order to make the nation an almost ungovernable mess so that anything Obama tries will fail. The country will slip further into depression, and after four years they will lay the blame on him for a failure they almost guaranteed would happen due to their efforts.

These people do not really care about the US or it's citizens, they just care about their twisted vision of the Theocratic Republic of America and their facist dreams for controlling everyone's life.

Praise the lord and pass the ammunition.

Where I come from "choice" in a doughnut shoppe meant strawberry, lemon or pineapple filling.

SCANDAL! SCANDAL! SCANDAL!

EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY!

George W. Bush continuously criminally stalked Margie Schoedinger to the point that she could not get away from it, and she committed suicide in desperation to escape: he murdered her.

“In her suit, Margie Schoedinger states that George W. Bush committed sexual crimes against her, organized harassment and moral pressure on her, her family members and close relatives and friends. As Schoedinger said, she was strongly recommended to keep her mouth shut. . . . Furthermore, she alleges that George Bush ordered to show pressure on her to the point, when she commits suicide” (blog of drizzten).

“One of those ‘very leasts’ [was] George Bush’s personal complicity in the death (murder to be precise) of my friend Margie Schoedinger in September of 2003. Determining the exact whereabouts and contacts of [then] president-elect George Bush on September 21 thru 22, 2003, should be entirely lacking in difficulty” (Leola McConnell—Nevada Progressive Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010).

McConnell is correct: Bush applying pressure (continuously criminally stalking Margie Schoedinger) purposefully to force Schoedinger to commit suicide does in fact constitute murder where it culminated in her death.

Bush is a racist hate criminal and hates black people (please feel free to see my “GEORGE W. BUSH IS THE WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY” blog). (Schoedinger was an African-American woman.)

BEWARE: If the president of the United States hates one—for whatever reasons—he can continuously criminally stalk one to the point that one cannot get away from it, and one ultimately commits suicide in desperation to escape. He can murder people in this way.

Bush is getting away with his murder of Schoedinger—with no sheriff, prosecutor, or court willing to uphold the rule of law.

Bush’s method of murdering Schoedinger cannot exist in a vacuum: he must have murdered other people in the same way.

Bush should confess, come out with the names of all of the people whom he murdered in the disgusting way he murdered Schoedinger, undergo execution, and accordingly find himself at the intersection where he would be free.

(There are thousands of copies of the information above on the Internet. It exists very extensively in all major search engines. Please feel free to go to any major search engine, type “George W. Bush continuously criminally stalked Margie Schoedinger to the point that she could not get away from it, and she committed suicide in desperation to escape: he murdered her” or “Bush applying pressure (continuously criminally stalking Margie Schoedinger) purposefully to force Schoedinger to commit suicide does in fact constitute murder where it culminated in her death,” hit “Enter,” and find innumerable results.)
