KFC Not Serving Real Chicken The Truth About KFC’s Name Change

KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, every day, eat at KFC religiously. However, do they really know what they are eating?

During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting facts. First of all, why did they change their name? Several years ago Kentucky fried chicken became KFC. Does anybody know why?

Most thought the real reason was because of the “fried” food issue. But that is not the case. The real reason why they call it KFC is because they cannot use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens.

They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so-called “chickens” are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers and no feet.

They grow with multiple legs and wings on one “chicken”. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC because it saves them money for their production costs.

There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government required them to change their name and banned them from using the word “chicken”. I find this matter very disturbing. I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know, because its not the first time I’ve mentioned this.

Happy Birthday Dr. Huey P. Newton (Co-founder of the Black Panther Party); because they don’t want us to know he had a Ph.D in Social Science. They want us to think he was just some ignorant, trouble-making thug.


Never ignorant. Nor did he “make trouble”. Everything he did was within the confines of the law, until they started changing the laws… He defended his community selflessly against the very police and government supposedly designed to support it. And affected a lasting positive change here (I live a few blocks from the stoplight the panthers got installed as their first real political action, and not too far from the first panther headquarters). He’s also never credited as the reason American schools started offering breakfast programs.

What Scooby Doo REALLY taught us is that once you pull off the mask, the real villain is usually an old white man thing to steal everyone’s land or money.

This is “war.” This is Gaza. This is Palestine. Do you not see how bad things have gotten? And wats all over the news? Lebron going back to Cleveland. How can that be anywhere near the media when this is going on? How can you people turn a blind eye and pretend like this isn’t going on? It’s pretty pathetic. I posted a few videos and a few pictures and instead of everyone sharing and trying to raise awareness I lost over a hundred followers. To hell with you all who unfollow me because I show “bloody” pictures. Like I said in my previous post, I’m sorry for ruining your perfect day for a few seconds when this mans life has been ruined forever, like thousands of others in Gaza now. NOW! DO YOU PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND THIS IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING? RIGHT NOW AS YOU READ THIS PEOPLE ARE DYING?! IS IT SO HARD FOR YOU TO RAISE AWARENESS? IS IT? WHAT IN GODS NAME IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? HOW CAN YOU BE OKAY WITH NOT KNOWING ABOUT WHATS GOING ON?!? HOW. God please, please I am begging you from the bottom of my heart, please from every inch of my being with everything I have, please please please turn the Palestinians pain and suffering to happiness and ease. Please God I beg you because you’re the only option these people have left. It’s obvious the rest of the world gave up, please Dear God, please Ya Allah, help these people in every way possible. Do not let them feel an ounce of pain more than they already have had to endure. Please God destroy and make do with the evil that’s causing these catastrophic events. Please God do not let Israel do to us what Hitler did to them, not anymore. They’ve done more than enough. Please God I’ve turned to you so please don’t turn away from me and answer my prayers because you’re the only one that’s willing to help. #Ameen #PrayForGaza #PrayForPalestine #WhereIsTheHumanity #WhereIsTheUN #WhereIsTheHumanRights #WhereIsThePeace #EndTheGenocide #ImBegging #God #HesTheOnlyOneWhoWantsToHelp #StopBeingIgnorant #OpenYourEyes #StopTheKillings #EndTheOccupation #Palestine #PalestineWillBeFree #Israel #Terrorists #Terrorism #Murder

My heart hurts.

Oh my God
