We all know that Larry Kudlow isn’t the brightest bulb, even by the low bar set for former Trump-admin conservative commentators. Yesterday he trained his keen intellect on the plant-based meat industry, railing against what he sees as a librul plot to force us to eat plant-based meat. In doing so he produced this gem:
“Speaking of stupid,” he began. “America has to, get this, America has to stop eating meat, stop eating poultry and fish, seafood, eggs, dairy and animal-based fats. OK, got that? No burgers on July Fourth. No steaks on the barbecue. … So get ready. You can throw back a plant-based beer with your grilled Brussels sprouts and wave your American flag.”
Larry’s beer is usually derived from the tears of liberals, I suppose.
I was curious where the conspiracy nuts got the idea that Biden was going to forcibly limit their meat consumption. Apparently the Daily Mail recently ran an article that dishonestly connected Biden’s climate plan with some completely-unrelated-to-Biden study about the carbon impact of meat consumption and now all the right-wing outlets are running with the headline Biden to order meat consumption cut by 90%.
That’s a popular assumption for right-wingers. To them the New Green Deal = no more meat or bbqs. Never-mind that it isn’t true and Biden didn’t even endorse the New Green Deal preferring his own version.
