One would hope that a Democrat party defined in the last couple of weeks by infanticide, blackface, alleged sexual assault, and lying to cover up the proposed green takeover of the economy would quickly be viewed as permanently non-viable (see what I did there?) to most Americans.
Sadly, that hope is probably misplaced. We are a stiff-necked people and are clearly capable of looking the other way on any number of issues as long as we are “getting ours.” But sooner or later, the levee has to break, doesn’t it?
And on that front, Cory Booker may have just crossed the “Oh hell no!” Rubicon. Because he’s coming for your meat and your cheese.
Now that’s the kind of crazy that will get people running to President Trump and his glorious buffets of Big Macs for a second term. I’m not even close to kidding about that.
People can become amoral about many issues, because if it doesn’t directly impact them, they simple don’t care about it, but the desire to radically change their menu options will hit them in the nose, gut, and groin all at once.
Booker told the magazine “VegNews” that he became vegan – which means he eats no food made with animal products – after realizing that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.” Then he went on to say we need to get rid of animal farming unless run by small and midsized farmers, which would obviously increase the cost of meat.
Talk about a theocracy. Your spirit is telling you that eggs are a no-no, so the rest of us don’t get to grill up a steak on the weekend unless we take out a second mortgage on our house?
