American Pistachio Giant Partners w/ North Korean Tyranny – Bigtime Dem Donors

By Debbie Schlussel

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.



Major Democrat Donors Stewart & Lynda Resnick Are Behind Disgusting Dennis Rodman Ad

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.

It’s all so much simpler for them with no sense of right and wrong. The unabashed and unchastened Resnicks live the charmed life of ignorant bliss.

Even with all their $$$$$$$ I wouldn’t change places with ’em. And clueless them couldn’t even begin to fathom why. That’s the bigger irony.

I keep an eye on crappy & creepy North Korea. I will make sure not to buy any of those products…thank goodness I hate pistachios but I do buy ’em for my feathered friends. Will not purchase “Wonderful” brand. Or that Pom drink (which I do like…).

This is life in 2013. Numbskulls of the first world prolly think Kim Jong-Un of North Korea is a pal of Kim Kardashian. They have no clue how weird and evil that regime is (or even that it IS a regime) or the suffering and lack of Liberty that goes on there.

I’m glad you called ’em out on this. It’s not funny. And should not be made sport of.

Let’s hear it for idiot narcissism in 2013!

    Skunky, Democrats love railing against those nasty corporations unless those nasty corporate types grease their palms. McDonald’s bought off Democrats for years, despite its labor practices, until Ray Croc’s widow, Joan Croc, passed on. Only after her death in 2003, did the Democratic Party and leftist activists feel free to go after McDonald’s. Democrats and their activists are as good as any gangster in pulling off an extortion racket.

      worry,you’re on to it, all right. Those who hate capitalism love $ when it’s going into their pockets.

      lee of the lower case "l" on September 19, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    I thought of you when reading about the Pom Wonderful part. I figured Skunky wouldn’t be caught dead putting the words “Pom” and “Wonderful” in the same sentence. LOL!!!

    This “commercial” is further evidence of the subliminal messaging theme, used so well by the left to drag down our culture.

Really poor taste at best, maybe trying their own hand at propaganda for the L.I. masses at worst.

DS_ROCKS! on September 19, 2013 at 4:51 pm

Perhaps the Resnicks as well as Rodman should embark upon a research voyage of what takes place in North Korea.

As Lee says, CLUELESS.

MARIE ANTOINETTE was an Angel of Mercy compared to these vile rulers. Research Camp 14 and Camp 22. Nuking the entire country would be a mercy to these prisoners.

Hey didn’t a lot of folks back in the day work with Hitler and Germany? This is nothing new. Scum has always been scum.

JeffT on September 19, 2013 at 6:18 pm

I knew there was a reason why I hate Fiji Water, Pom Wonderful and Teleflora. I have to admit I do love pistachios even though they are expensive. I just never buy the Wonderful brand because others are cheaper. Now I really have a reason to not buy the Resnick’s products. Who want’s to subsidize these two nitwits donating to the Dumbocrats. Especially idiot politicians like Corey Booker and Ed Markey. The NORKS are an evil empire and Dennis Rodman is a bumbling useful idiot. Anyone who can’t see that is either clueless, stupid or an Obama voter.

The Resnicks appear to be another case of self-hating Jews breaking bread with the enemy. They need counseling.

Seek on September 19, 2013 at 7:29 pm

They remind me of the Bloodworth-Thomasons: loathsome, out-of-touch, limousine-liberals pontificating to we “little people” who are too stupid to know what to do or think.

DS_ROCKS! on September 19, 2013 at 8:49 pm

You have no sense of humor. If anything the commercial is making fun of Rodman for being so foolish.

Matthew on September 19, 2013 at 11:01 pm

You misunderstand the commercial. He gets blown up at the end.

You’re looking for something to take offense at, and you’re not even picking the right thing.

Focus on more important stuff than lighthearted 15 second commercials!

Matthew on September 19, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    Matt: Agreed.

    Joe Guiney on September 20, 2013 at 2:05 am

M and JG need to be reminded of the role cultural leftism plays in undermining social institutions. It helps ease the way for political leftism, and as such, it is entirely appropriate to comment on it, and keep up with the new disturbing trends. (I am taking these comments at face value, although it wouldn’t surprise me if they were inserted by people who had a commercial interest in these products.)

Little Al on September 20, 2013 at 9:00 am

    Right on, Little Al & if JG or Matthew knew anything about North Korea they would find it hard to laugh at such an un-laughable country. ESPECIALLY coming from Libtards who generally have zero sense of humour and *seem* to care more for people than mean, old Conservatives. If these hypocrites were REAL they would be sounding the horn on Nork Tyranny NOT making sport of it with a mental-cased, whack-job FRAUD like Rodman.

    JG is NOT one of the smartest on this blog anyway. If not ignored he leans Left quite predictably.

    Yeah, he adds zero to the marketplace of ideas. We’re over stocked up left loon-ery here.

    Skunky on September 20, 2013 at 11:44 am

And I hope no one is dumb enough to be taken in by the phony philo-semitism of Cory Booker. John Lewis puts in the same act, and he is now associated with J Street.

Little Al on September 20, 2013 at 9:02 am

Didn’t they have Py or Psy or whatever his name is do the commercials before Rodman?

Mags on September 20, 2013 at 2:11 pm

I hope their pistachios aren’t the ones used in Haagen Dazs pistachio flavor. I eat about 150 containers of Haagen Dazs a year, with several of those being Pistachio.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 21, 2013 at 11:11 am

You paint Lynda Resnick to be a bad woman, but when I look her up I find out that she is on the Executive Board of UCLA Medical Sciences, and the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Milken Family Foundation which supports education and medical research. The Milken Family Foundation’s Wikipedia entry says that they are archiving 350 years of music from Jewish life in America.

The pistachios in question are grown in California, not Iran. Pistachios are one of the more popular exports from Iran, although Barack Obama seemed to have signed executive orders continuing sanctions against exports that include their rugs, caviar and pistachios, if I understand that Wikipedia article right about U.S. Sanctions Against Iran.

Maybe Kim Jong Un would blow up Rodman because he’s supporting a product from the Great Satan? Perhaps Rodman should have brought him some pistachios from Iran.

Matthew on November 22, 2013 at 11:18 pm

I think everyone knows that Iran and North Korea are a danger. For instance, they don’t need many nuclear weapons to hit us hard. They can wipe out electricity fast with an EMP attack, which doesn’t require launching the missile that far into the air.

A scary situation would be with a balloon that carries it up. I’m not sure what the size of the balloon has to be, but it’s probably feasible and inexpensive to set up. Zepplins carry a lot of weight, for instance.

We ought to bug our senators and congressmen and president more about protecting our nation against EMP attacks. It’s a lot more than just losing the internet for a day, or even losing all life in New York City, because it would turn off power in hospitals, transportation, water, food, etc.

Matthew on November 22, 2013 at 11:23 pm

I mean, it’s possible for the EMP attacks to hit nationwide. You don’t need as many bombs then to do as much damage.

Matthew on November 22, 2013 at 11:25 pm

Just had some Wonderful “Get Crackin'” pistachios when I went upstairs, after writing the above comments.

They are DELICIOUS! Absolutely great. Love ’em. I had some Planters’ cashews, too. And some hummus, but I think it was made from Sabra. I’m not sure about Toufayen bread — is that from the Middle East?

Well, the good thing about eating locally grown pistachios is that even if there’s a bunch of EMP attacks that wipe out all Western (and Eastern) civilization back at least 100 years, we can still eat them! Especially if they’re local! So much easier.

So thank you to the Resnicks for owning this company so I can have some pistachios to eat at cheap prices, even if oil goes through the roof or our electric grid is wiped out.
