As Ace so pithily puts it: You may refuse to eat zee bugs, but we will use government resources to make your children eat zee bugs.
1,000 Australian schools are fed insects
Are you keen to chow down on micro livestock?
A teacher from one of the 1,000 Australian schools feeding kids chips made out of powdered crickets asks, ‘Do crickets taste good?’ The student nods and the teacher adds, ‘Yeah. Let’s eat some more crickets…!’
Bugs are on the menu again… Why does the World Economic Forum have such a weird obsession with making our kids eat them?
First, let me make something very clear: Bugs are not food. You should not eat bugs. They are insects. They belong on the ground, or in the air, or wherever the heck they live. They do not belong on your dinner plate.
You will eat bugs to stop Climate Change.
Climate Change is nothing more than an exaggeration of the weather. The weather is not going to kill you unless you have the misfortune to get struck by lightning, hit on the head by a hailstone, or caught in a flood. Chances are, a warm summer’s night is not going to act like the local axe murderer. Bad energy policy is a different matter. You might freeze to death if you have no heating in your home, which, ironically, the same bug-pushers now want to take away. Switzerland has threatened to throw people in prison for three years if they turn up their heating to 19 degrees Celsius (around 66 Fahrenheit)!
But back to the bugs.
You might be wondering – how will eating bugs change the weather?
The official World Economic Forum line is that eating meat is accelerating the effects of Climate Change. Therefore, to fix ‘the climate’ humans need to reduce their consumption of meat and replace it with a climate-friendly substitute. There are a few on offer, but the favourite is insect protein.
These agenda-driven bureaucrats are doing their best to promote insect-gorging as being ‘good’ for you.
If you believe the hype, they’re nutritious, full of protein, and still very tasty. And there is a great range of bugs out there for you to try. You could eat crickets, or grind them up into a powder to replace plain white flour or self-raising flour (what’s wrong with normal flour?). You could even attempt some highly nutritious cockroach milk on your cereal. Maybe you enjoy a bit of seasoning on your meals? Well, instead of getting out the salt and pepper, grab some lightly-acidic ants instead. You could even top those meals off with some protein-packed mealworms.
In recent weeks, it was revealed that canteens in 1,000 Australian schools have started selling cricket chips produced by the company Circle Harvest. Students are being encouraged to eat these chips, which are laced with cricket protein, and are told by teachers that they are healthy.
In a video from one school of three young students eating these chips, a teacher can be heard off camera saying: ‘Chips are great, aren’t they? And these chips are even better because they think they’re better for you!’
Another teacher is then heard saying: ‘Did you know they’re made from little insects?’ When one of the students replies ‘no’, the teacher goes on to say ‘Can you taste it? No, you can’t. It tastes like normal CCs doesn’t it?’
It is clear that these people are doing everything they can to normalise eating bugs from a young age. As we all know by now, indoctrination starts early.
Perzackly so. And see, this is how the Wizards of Shitlib always and forever work their warped magic on us: incrementalism. Instead of simply mandating eating zee bugs right from the git-go, first they foist ’em off on our children, secure in the knowledge that, once the young ‘uns have been manipulated into being on board with this nonsense and are fully inured to it, those kids are then going to go home and start in wheedling and cajoling Mom and Dad as to why don’t we eat zee bugs at home, pleasepleaseplease can we get some, pretty pleeeaaase?
Next thing you know, there’s a fucking Fun-Size bag of Cricket Chip Snakz™ sitting on a shelf in your pantry, and you’re scratching your head in befuddlement over exactly how the bleedin’ hell this shit ever came to be. When you get right down to it, it’s not at all dissimilar to how we’ve ended up where we are with Obamacare, really; as I long ago predicted, once the foot is in the door, it will come to seem commonplace, then accepted, then a completely immutable fact of life. And then, next thing you know…
Republicans abandon Obamacare repeal
On Capitol Hill and the 2022 campaign trail, the party’s appetite for undoing former President Obama’s signature law has faded, lawmakers and candidates say.
WASHINGTON — Republicans are abandoning their long crusade to repeal the Affordable Care Act, making the 2022 election the first in more than a decade that won’t be fought over whether to protect or undo President Barack Obama’s signature achievement.
The diminished appetite for repeal means the law — which has extended health care coverage to millions of people and survived numerous near-death experiences in Congress and the courts — now appears safer than ever.
With slightly more than a month before the next election, Republicans in Congress and on the campaign trail aren’t making an issue of Obamacare. None of the Republican Senate nominees running in eight key battleground states have called for unwinding the ACA on their campaign websites, according to an NBC News review. The candidates scarcely mention the 2010 law or health insurance policy in general. And in interviews on Capitol Hill, key GOP lawmakers said the desire for repeal has faded.
“I think it’s probably here to stay,” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, a close ally of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and a former chair of the GOP’s campaign arm.
Anyone could easily see this woebegone day coming when the GOPe quietly adjusted “Repeal Obamacare” to “Repeal AND REPLACE Obamacare.” I said so back then, not that I’m bragging about my astonishing powers of clairvoyance or anything. At that point, the writing was on the wall, for anyone with eyes to see: Obamacare was here to stay. From here on out, future generations will simply take its existence as read, and will eventually come to regard any mention of doing away with it as nothing more nor less than daylight barking madness, the ravings of deranged individuals. Mark my words, people.
And that, my friends, is how they getcha.
Incredibly disgusting update! But…but…but MIKE!, you exclaim. That story is from Australia, it could NEVER happen here!, you wail. Think so, do ya? Come sit here on my lap, child, so’s I can dry you out behind the ears.
It’s astonishing how, by the time we normal folk first hear of a new Globalist Socialist initiative, it turns out there’s already a significant amount of infrastructure in place. Take eating bugs, for example. Did you know that there are currently sizable cricket farms in many parts of the world, including Canada and the United States? Or that cricket flour is already used in some foods?
For example, Entomo Farms in Canada currently produces a weekly harvest of 50 million crickets, which it mills into 9,000 pounds of “protein.” The owners plan to triple production within a year. Some of the “cricket flour” goes into pet foods, while some is added to foods made for human consumption. And some of the insects are used intact as seasoned snack foods. The cricket producer already sells its products under the brand name Actually Foods.
In all fairness, there seems to be much to recommend free-range cricket farming: farms require a fairly small footprint, crickets are fast breeders, cricket poop (“frass”) can be used as fertilizer, crickets and bugs carry very few diseases that can be transmitted to humans, and the critters have a range of uses. Crickets can be included in pet foods and treats. (I know my cat loves her some bugs.) Soy-heads can include chirpers in their diet as a protein source. And — my favorite — crickets can be fed to real food like tasty fish, chickens, and turkeys.
So what’s the problem? Glo-Socs aren’t simply trying to offer people another item on the menu to choose from; they want to eventually force us to eat bugs, which they will do by abolishing the raising of livestock. We know how this goes because we’ve seen this movie before. Glo-Socs target something for abolition — DDT, incandescent bulbs, internal combustion engines — make a politicized scientific effort to create a replacement, then ban the targeted product. Never mind that the crappy replacement they came up with is inferior and that no one would choose it over the original item. What’s the point of having all that power if you’re not going to use it, amirite?
Here’s where the dystopia sets in.
Not quite, no. To be precise about it, the dystopia was established long ago. This is merely the latest symptom of it, that’s all.
