Barilla Pasta Now Being Boycotted Because Owner Says He Won't Use Homosexual Families in Ads, Preferring a Traditional Family Image

This isn't creepy at all.

“I would never do (a commercial) with a homosexual family, not for lack of respect but because we don’t agree with them. Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role,” Reuters reports Mr. Barilla as saying in a radio interview Wednesday.

According to Reuters, the gay rights group Equality Italia already has called for a boycott of the pasta over Mr. Barilla’s “offensive provocation.”

“[If gay people] like our pasta and our advertising, they’ll eat our pasta, if they don’t like it then they will not eat it and they will eat another brand,” Mr. Barilla said during the radio interview.

Yes I can see why that's so offensive that you'd hit the Outrage Button with both hands and a heavy shoe.

He has walked back the comments... sorta.

"With reference to remarks made yesterday to an Italian radio program, I apologize if my words have generated controversy or misunderstanding, or if they hurt someone's sensitivity," Guido Barilla said in a statement. "In the interview I simply wished to underline the central role the woman plays within the family."

Gay marriage is not legal in Italy.

He added, "For clarity, I would like to point out that: - I have the utmost respect for anyone, without distinction of any kind.

- I have the utmost respect for gay people and for everyone's right to express themselves. I've also said -- and I would like to reiterate -- that I respect gay marriages.

- In its advertising, Barilla represents the family - because it's what welcomes everyone and what has always been identified with our brand."

But the #boicottbarilla hashtag is heating up. One English-speaking twit twits:

Sigh. I'd like my pasta without the side of homophobia, thanks.

Yes, not clapping hard enough for the sexual choices of gays constitutes "homophobia" now. "Intolerance" now means "an uncivilized lack of moist enthusiasm."

I've always dreamed in living in a world where I was Free to Celebrate precisely those cult objects that the left demanded I Celebrate. I always dreamed of a world in which I was Free to be rentlessly henpecked, anklebitten, bullied & boycotted by well-funded leftist groups paid to harass citizens every waking moment of every single day.

Actually... It seems to me the question was asked for this reason: The gay lobby wants Barilla (and all other corporations) to affirmatively campaign for their political agenda. Ergo, Barilla's statement that they won't be doing that is now defined as "homophobia."

I say "now" as if this is a new wrinkle. Of course it's been going on for a quite a while.


I notice you're not applauding quite frequently or vigorously enough, Comrade.

Barilla is the only good pasta you can but off the shelf.

Ever try the Barilla Plus? Tastes a little off the first couple of times you eat it, but once you get used to it, it's better than the plain.

Regular semolina pasta gives me a blood sugar spike/crash that makes me hungrier while I eat it unless it's immediately after a hard workout.

9 Just once I want one of these CEOs to come out with the non-apology apology: "Oh, I'm so sorry if you were too stupid to follow that thought from one end to the other."

Even better would be a statement along these lines, "It has come to my attention that my comments regarding X have been misinterpreted by some, so I would like to clarify. Our company associates itself with family values- those values center around what is now call "the traditional family" and we believe that traditional families are the building blocks of society. As such, I would like to reiterate that, to the extent possible for my company, we will continue to celebrate, and advertise to, the traditional family."

10 They've even destroyed the meaning of "tolerance". To tolerate is to allow the existence of or practice of without interference.

Gays can gay all they want all over the country right now. Some pasta magnate not advertising with gay or pretend gay people is not interfering with the practice of being gay.

In fact, by definition, those attempting to interfere with Barilla's choice are being intolerant.

15 "Tolerance" is just the mask. What they seek is "celebration."

After all, who wants to be "tolerated"? Doesn't that mean that one is enduring something second-rate, only because something better isn't available? If you eat at a restaurant and the food was "tolerable," that's not a ringing endorsement.

48 The biggest reason why I don't support gay marriage is mainly because of gay activists and their brown shirt tactics.

If I truly thought gay marriage was just about gay people wanting a legal recognition of a union, I would be fine with it, but it's clear their main objective is to simply destroy traditional values and rub their opponents face in it.

61 This has been going on for decades. If you don't agree, you are attacked - no dissent tolerated. A friend of mine ran at a student newspaper at a major university in the 80's. Wrote a non-pc article about gay rights. Death threats poured in. Calls for firing, his home phone # posted in men's rooms; the usual "tolerant" stuff.

This stopped being about acceptance a long time ago. Ace captures the mindset perfectly:

105 "It's sad that so many aspects of the human experience have to be
evaluated based on how they reflect on homosexual anal intercourse"

This. You know, I used to not care what you put up your butt as long as you didn't have to tell me about it. Now I feel differently about it. I will not celebrate this deviancy. My patience is spent. I will ensure that it is called out for what it is, whenever the proper opportunity presents itself. It is sexual deviancy and is dehumanizing. Practicing homosexuals are practicing sexual deviants, regardless of their feelings or attractions.

End of story.

112 A Senior NCO in the Air Force, is under investigation for making a false official statement because after his Lesbian CO fired him for NOT saying he agreed with her on Gay Marriage, he talked to the Press OUT OF UNIFORM.

Its a Court Martial Offense.

A Fox Sports Reporter was fired right after taking a new job, because of he was pro Traditional Marriage while running as a Republican for a Senate seat... (they are trying to walk it back, but there were early statements that said just that).

The Gay Mafia is taking a victory lap around the country.... what they don't understand is that they are BEGGING for a backlash.

121 Barilla should just launch a sub-brand, called "Poofter Pasta," with ads showing leather-wearing mustachioed guys whipping half-naked twinks with limp spaghetti noodles. That way, they'll sell to both the straight and gay markets.

Not sure if you realize it zombie, but you've sent some of the ladies here to Google the word 'twink'. I wish *I* didn't know what the word meant, nor form the mental picture I have from some Google image.

Which is interesting, btw. I notice a huge amount of gay pictures now appear when you type in some innocuous hetero term. I don't notice-notice in a gay way, just a 'why-in-the-hell-is-that-picture-here?' way.

199 If a boycott is to be effective, it has to have more people supporting it than people deliberately opposing it, right? That is, if there were more homophobes than homophiles, saying "homophobic" things would result in net increase, despite a boycott.

So how prevalent can homophobia be?

204 Stole this straight from Breitbart:

C.S. Lewis: "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences."

G.K. Chesterton: "The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog."

247 BSB's gen-u-wine dago killer pasta and sausage without red sauce.

Get a great big frying pan with high sides and a cover.

De-case and brown up one pound of Italian sausage, hot or sweet, whichever you prefer. Use white wine to fry it in if you want to be classy. Just before it finishes, add 2 ounces of pancetta. Just before THAT finishes crisping up, add one teaspoon minced garlic. Careful not to burn the garlic.

Meanwhile, cook up one pound Barilla penne pasta in a pasta pot, 9 minutes for al dente. After about the 4th minute of boiling, toss in a big handful or three of baby spinach and cook it along with the pasta.

Now go back to your sausage pan. Add one jar drained artichokes and a couple teaspoons of minced sundried tomatoes. Cook till the artichokes soften and separate. Now dump in 2 cups chicken broth.

Soon as the pasta is done, scoop out 2 cups of the pasta cooking water and add to your sausage pan, then go ahead and drain the pasta/spinach.

Add the pasta and spinach to your sausage pan, cover halfway and cook everything together for another several minutes till the greens are done.

Add real parmesan (no Kraft shit, please) and Italian seasoning.

Bellissimo!

He said he knows that they've sent out lots of notices to people to watch what's going on, but that they don't seem to be watching out for what's best for the country!

Lee is responding.

Same here, and I'd agree 100%...except that this is setting a new precendent, where every brand HAS to have a GLTB:SD:SUV friendly family in their ads, otherwise H8! It doesn't matter if you are selling pasta, dog food, tires...PC approved imagery or off to the H8 camps. And that DOES affect me.

I'll have to try Barilla brand pasta because if they are also flavoring their food with hate, it will probably taste pretty good as well.

318 266: The stupid spectrum thing was put forth largely by the worlds most famous perv Dr. Kinsey. Keep in mind most of his research was done on prison inmates, a group not necessarily representative of the sexual habits of society at large.

IIRC, most serious inquiry into the matter shows that where there may be some "spectrum" existing among females, males tend to be binary. There are an insanely small number of "bisexual" males. Tends to be one way or the other.

My experience has been men claiming bisexual are actually gay, and females claiming it are actually straight.

It's one of the dogma of the leftist religion.
You know the whole "compassion for the waylaid man/hooker/leper etc." is part of the Bible as good deeds = reward in heaven?

Sort of like that. But it's an earthly reward. They are buying indulgences for their sins.

You eat steaks but you support gay marriage = your soul is purified.
You never donate to charity but you are pro-choice = your soul is purified.
You drive a car but you watched "An Inconvenient Truth" = your soul is purified.

They've an endless list of purification rituals.

Meanwhile, the normal man would think, "wouldn't it be easier to just be a good person?"

That's why normal people aren't leftists.

This is not surprising, in the least. If you don't suck a proffered dick these days, it's because you're an intolerant homophobic bigot. We've been heading down this road for a while....which is why we're all racists if we even casually mention any one of Broncobama's many failings.

421 If there is some kind of a shutdown, don't they get paid when it starts back up, so they lose nothing. Compared to the private sector where if they cut your hours or you lose your job, you get nothing too. Ok, depending on your level, some severance but lately been hearing that's not so good. So being a government employee and getting your back pay or private sector getting nothing but a cardboard box and the security guy to escort you out. The government employees are still in a better spot, yet they complain.

You don't spend enough time around academics and bureaucrats, or you'd have the answer to that conundrum.

The private sector is a scary remnant of an evil reactionary past that should have faded away by now, far too many think.

There was a jr high student in a recent NaNo (writing) group that would not shut up about their idiot uninformed politics and how they'd never work for the private sector. Effin 14 or something, brainwashed like Soviet Youth.

449 The continual onslaught by the Gay Nazis won't stop until the Church is destroyed, all Christians are pariahs, marriages are anathema (except for gay ones), children are groomed and compliant to homosexual approaches and anyone who has a problem with that is cast into either jail or rehabilitation camp.

(note; I don't include all gays in the Gay Nazis Cult. Nor do I object to or intend to vilify those who have a differing sexual orientation than the mainstream. I object to those who's aim is retribution for a perceived insult and who's tactics mimic fascist acts in the past.)

Up next: all Christians must wear a yellow cross on their clothing and be harassed out of their neighborhoods and rounded up into walled enclaves at the outskirts of population centers. (that's just until the "showers" and "work" facilities can be built)

"Is it all organic and free range items and how do all the waiters, chef, sous chef and dishwashers feel about gay marriage?" before they'll order anything.

The first episode of Portlandia (available on Netflix) does this with free-range chickens. The diners ask questions about the food, drive to the local farm where it's raised, join a cult, and return years later. Haven't watched more of the show yet, but the first episode was surprisingly cruel to lefty hipsters.
