It appears that a Democratic Socialist presidential candidate wants us all to die young, and stupid:
Andrew Yang agrees that the world should stop eating meat immediately.
“The U.N. just released a study that said we’re going to be OK if the vast majority of the world goes vegetarian immediately,” the entrepreneur and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said. “So, it’s good for the environment, it’s good for your health if you eat less meat. Certainly, meat is an extraordinarily expensive thing to produce from an environmental sustainability point of view. So, I think it would be healthy on both an individual and societal level for us to move in that direction.”
Oh, well if the United Nations says that, then it’s all tickety-boo, and so of course we have to follow their dicta slavishly.
Then we have the Vegetarian Deniers’ input, here:
Vegetarians have a 20% higher risk of suffering a stroke than meat eaters ‘because they miss out on key vitamins’
And we’re also going to become more stupid, before we die young:
Plant-based diets `risk insufficient intake of brain-critical nutrient´, says nutritionist.
Hell, with vegans, we don’t even have to wait until the next generation for Teh Stupid to manifest itself. [loud laughter warning]
But to return to the point at hand: I hadn’t heard about this Yang creature before, other than that he’s about as loony as all the others in the Socialist Clown Car — and judging from his polling numbers, just about everyone else thinks the same way I do.
What I want to know is: how many of the other Socialist assholes support his thesis? Now there’s a question for the next debate. Just don’t hold your breath waiting for it to be asked.
