Democrats want us to stop eating hamburgers, steaks, ribs, roast beef and the rest of the meat we all love so much. Though Cory Booker is the only Democratic candidate for president who has gone full-blown vegan, the remainder of the party’s candidates are also making it painfully clear they want to drastically change Americans’ eating habits.
Namely, Democrats want all of us to consume less red meat. If Democrats have their way, eating meat will eventually be a crime.
Take a close look at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal and you will find it is particularly focused on the impact of animal consumption. In particular, Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal zeroes in on cow farts that she claims is a major contributor to the warming of our planet (I couldn’t make these claims up if I tried).
Sadly, that is exactly what the likes of Ocasio-Cortez would like to do. If we elect a Democrat in the next presidential election and Democrats emerge with a majority of the seats in the House and Senate, the path will be clear to pass Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. It is conceivable banning meat consumption, or at the very least heavily restricting how much you can eat it, will soon be a reality in the United States.
When President Trump was running for the White House, he sometimes portrayed himself as the McDonald’s candidate running against Democrats who prioritize animals over humans. This portrayal is quite accurate. It is well-known that President Trump enjoys a diet that includes fast foods.
It is also well-known that Democrats are moving toward Booker’s point of view regarding diet and the supposed health benefits of veganism. The Democrats’ ever-growing focus on limiting or even banning the consumption of meat will backfire in a big way.
Take a moment to consider the number of people you know who are vegetarian. You can likely count those individuals on one hand. Now take a moment to tabulate the number of vegans you know. There is a good chance you do not know any vegans as they are few and far between here in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
The bottom line is Americans consume their fair share of meat and they should not apologize for doing so. The argument between omnivores and vegetarians/vegans essentially boils down to the fact that one group is adhering to the food pyramid while the other is ignoring it.
First, they will come for your pickup truck, forcing you to convert to an electric vehicle. Then they will demand you retrofit your home to make it green. The next logical step is for the left to make the consumption of certain foods like hamburgers and steak illegal.
The outlawing of meat will be done under the Democrat’s guise of saving the planet. However, there are countless other ways to improve the planet’s health without sacrificing American’s dietary needs. Climate change activists like AOC and Greta Thunberg should focus their efforts on Asia—specifically China and India—who are the top 2 polluters in the world. But of course, they have said nothing about them, instead they go after Americans first.
This fact alone displays Democrats hypocrisy when it comes to the environment. For them this is more about power than it is about saving the planet. Remember that when you go to the ballot box in 14 months from now.
