If it weren’t for hypocrisy, the Democrats would have nothing to run on.
They now want to tax beef to save the planet but then when it came time to woo voters, they held a BBQ with 10,500 steaks on the grills.
How many cow farts went into this feast?
Is it that they don’t realize how hypocritical they are or is it that they just don’t care. I believe it is the latter. They will do anything for power. Once they control your medical, food and retirement savings, they own you for life.
According to reports, organizers were prepared to grill roughly 10,500 steaks plus 1,000 vegan burgers. Seventeen candidates attended the event, including:
Their participation follows weeks of climate change alarmism from presidential candidates and activists across the globe. Several of the presidential hopefuls have floated limiting beef consumption – particularly, in recent weeks.
Yang told the audience at CNN’s 7-hour climate change town hall this month that “it’s good for the environment, it’s good for your health if you eat less meat.”
“I think it would be healthy on both an individual and a societal level for us to move in that direction,” he said.
Klobuchar also signaled support of reshaping dietary guidelines to reduce beef consumption, as did Harris, who said the government should find the balance between creating incentives and banning “certain behaviors.”
Harris said she would support changing the government dietary guidelines and the food pyramid to reduce the amount of red meat in American diets.
She also supported the idea of putting climate impact labels on food.
“I’ve always believed that we should, you know, expand what’s on those cans of those things you buy in the grocery store,” she said. “We should expand the list. And included in that should be a measure of the impact on the environment.”
Mayor Pete Buttigieg called for more “balance” in American meat production but was careful to say he was not in favor of abolishing the cow.
He argued that government intervention like a carbon tax would encourage Americans have “more balanced diet” and a “more balanced footprint.”
O’Rourke cited a similar solution, arguing that a carbon tax would balance out the carbon emissions by the meat industry.
“I think we just have to be more responsible in the way that we do it and the best way to do that is to allow the markets to respond by setting a price on carbon in every single part of our economy, every facet of American life,” he said.
