If this were 1943, I wonder if Lynda Resnick would be making commercials with Josef Goebbels yukking it up and hawking her “Wonderful” brand of pistachios? In fact, I don’t wonder. Sadly, it’s a pretty good bet she would do it.
Resnick and her husband, Stewart Resnick, are the billionaire owners of the companies that produce Fiji Water, Pom Wonderful, Wonderful pistachio, and Cuties tangerine products. They also own Teleflora. And, now, they’ve produced a commercial featuring Dennis Rodman, hawking their pistachios while making light of anyone who is alarmed by North Korean tyranny.
The commercial features Rodman and a Kim Jong Un lookalike and makes light of the fact that Kim is a mass murderer and Rodman is his propagandist and apologist. And the Resnicks, who are major donors to liberal Democrats, including the Democratic Party (see Lynda’s campaign contributions; see Stewart Resnick’s campaign contributions–they seem to love Cory Booker and Ed Markey, among others), apparently don’t think there’s a problem trampling on the memories of Kim’s many innocent victims.
Oh, sure, the commercial refers to Rodman is “nuts.” Nod, nod, wink, wink. All while giving him a ton of renewed publicity and making light of what is going on in North Korea. After all, Rodman keeps making excuses for this reprehensible dictator, and now the Resnicks are paying him big bucks and giving him mucho publicity. And all three of them are laughing (at us) all the way to the bank, while Kim’s citizens are slaves in concentration camps.
I can’t say I’m surprised. The Resnicks have a history of this. Lynda Resnick appears at length in Islam apologist Morgan Spurlock’s “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold” (read my review) and made sure that her “Pom Wonderful” was the title sponsor (the full title is “Pom Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold”). That’s despite the fact that Spurlock is openly anti-Israel, was honored by unindicted HAMAS co-conspirator CAIR, and attacks corporations that put out high-calorie foods (ever check the calorie count in the Pom Wonderful drinks?) as he did in the deceptive propaganda movie, “Supersize Me.”
The Resnicks have no conscience. They have no dignity. They are merely a higher class of whore.
And in that sense, they have a lot in common with their new, paid huckster, Dennis Rodman.
