Meat is under attack by liberals and Republicans are uniting to protect it from them.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Republican governors representing heartland states are uniting in support of the cattle industry in response to calls from Jared Polis, the Democratic governor of Colorado, to move his state away from eating meat. The herd of Republican governors of Nebraska, Iowa, Wyoming, and Montana has taken issue with Polis’s call for Saturday, March 20, to be observed as “MeatOut Day,” during which residents are asked to replace meat with a plant-based alternative.
All four Republican governors issued proclamations in response, declaring upcoming meat days and even meat months as a show of solidarity with America’s ranchers. Nebraska governor Pete Ricketts declared March 20 to be Meat on the Menu Day, explicitly urging Nebraskans to “purchase and eat beef, pork, chicken, lamb, or another kind of meat.”
In Montana, Governor Greg Gianforte declared Saturday Montana Meat Day but also added that “every day is meat day in Montana.” In Wyoming, Governor Mark Gordon, himself a rancher, said his state will celebrate Saturday as Hearty Meat Day.
Polis—a meat eater himself—was heralded by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for staking out an anti-meat position. The radical animal rights group’s president, Ingrid Newkirk, lauded Polis for “provok[ing] a nationwide discussion” about vegan eating, even as over two dozen Colorado counties countered his proclamation with “MeatIn” days scheduled to coincide with MeatOut day.
Governor Kim Reynolds (R-Iowa) declared April “Meat on the Table Month.”
