Republicans Uniting to Protect… Meat

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.”

If I was a cow, a Goat, a Sheep, etc. I would be a vegetarian, but I am a man, like a Wolf, a Bear, a Lion with CANINE TEETH designed to tear and consume MEAT! They can keep their grazing food, I will always be a REAL meat eater.

That’s not the worst of Colorado Governor’s plans. He wants to make the law that covers companion animals like dogs and cats apply to livestock. That law would take common place and necessary practices like pregnancy checking and artificial insemination, that require rectal palpation, and turn them into illegal sex attacks on the animal. In addition it would require that all meat animals cannot be slaughtered UNTIL they have lived at least one quarter of their estimated lifespan.
That would mean cows would have to be at least five yrs. old, turkeys five, chickens four, ducks three, pigs seven, sheep seven and rabbits three. That would make the meat far past prime and would eliminate most producers because they could not afford to feed the animal for that length of time, particularly since it would bring a significantly lower price. It would criminalize the sale of lamb and veal. The board said that people could still buy those products from OUT OF STATE, hardly the way to support your own local businesses. Multiple outlets highlight the effects of this law including thefencepost and coloradopolitics.

Gov. Polis is merely pandering to Bill Gates, who has suddenly discovered the “benefits” of veganism – well, benefits for OTHER people. I’m sure Bill will retain the right and ability to suck down a steak when he feels like it. BUT “rich nations”, per Bill, need to give up meat. “Rich nations” – not necessarily “rich people”.

Whether this is about “equality” (sharing the misery) or climate change (removing cow farts) doesn’t matter. This is the idiotic ranting of a wealthy eccentric who is dying to embrace any stupidity which popularizes him. After all, without flagrant moral posturing, who would bother to pay attention to this geek turned billionaire busybody?

So, Bill, drop a bit of cash on Governor Polis for embracing your “meatless culture” in a state famous for its beef industry – it’s like giving a dog a treat when it learns a trick. I’ll bet you can even teach him to roll over and beg. Should be amusing.

If this doesn’t scare anyone with a brain the size is a pea, frankly I’m not sure what will?
Our country, our freedoms, our liberties and our own free will, ALL are being lost every day. Not sure why we’re not rising up???

Most of us just ignore Big Brother; rising up will suddenly happen at some level of enforcement by racist stooges .

Vegetarian diet is a wonderful thing, but should not be mandated by law banning meat. I think I’ll go out and celebrate at a steakhouse!

Now they want to tell us what we can eat too? This has already gone too far. We’re not spending enough time in front of the Supreme Court.I have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…end of story.
