Vox Decides To Fat Shame To Push ‘Climate Change’

Two of the latest crazy things going around are “fat shaming” and “body positive.” These are SJW concepts which have become methods to push being overweight and even obese as “positive” life styles, despite what doctors will tell you. You almost can’t go a day where someone is writing something about someone fat shaming them (they are usually majorly overweight) or about them being body positive (meaning very fat). So, what’s up with this, Julia Belluz at Vox?

Want to fix obesity and climate change at the same time? Make Big Food companies pay.

Obesity, climate change, and malnutrition are among the greatest global crises facing our world today. Wouldn’t it be great if there were solutions to tackle all three problems at once?

That might sound far-fetched. But a new report, published Sunday in Lancet, implores us to think about the possibility of big, systemic fixes for these interrelated scourges.

Overnutrition, undernutrition, and global warming share common causes: Powerful commercial interests that promote overconsumption, “policy inertia,” and weak governance, according to the report, led by the University of Auckland in New Zealand, George Washington University in the US, and World Obesity Federation in the UK.

Nowhere is that more pronounced than in the global food industry: Large food companies stuff our shelves with calorie-dense, nutrient-poor foods. They market their sugary drinks and snacks to children. And they lobby politicians to obstruct policies and subsidies that’d help us eat healthier.

This global food system also generates up to a third of total greenhouse gas emissions.

Here’s an idea: don’t buy that food. Have some willpower. Regardless, the same wankers pushing obesity being linked to ‘climate change’ are the exact same people yammering about fat shaming and being body positive. Think I’m kidding?

Fat shaming, explained in one terrible tweet

Yeah, that’s Julia. And these same people will make all sorts of excuses. Anyhow

“Trying to prevent malnutrition, obesity, and unsustainable agricultural practices has been impossible in the face of food industry opposition to public health measures that might reduce product sales,” said Marion Nestle, a food policy researcher at New York University, who was not involved in the study. “This report makes it clear that governments must act to curb food industry practices that promote poor health and damage the environment.” To do that, the report authors argue, we need an international treaty, one that treats Big Food companies like Big Tobacco. Here’s why.

Funny how this comes down to government force regarding….food.

    The “solution” is obvious. Government control of the diet of every American. Collective kitchens for everyone with metered portions. Everyone gets the same, based on what a government bureaucrat thinks you need. Then there is no malnutrition, no obesity and only the exact right amount of food being produced. No waste. Restaurants and grocery stores will be illegal. Utopia is wonderful! If only we had more smart people in charge to run our lives for us because most of us are too stupid to eat.

    It comes down to FF’ing FASCISM. Something communist would endorse wholeheartedly.

    the left is terrified of its own shadow. They are fearful little twits who run around trying to get government to regulate peoples own habits. Funny how they lost their minds when the right tries to control them when it comes to abortions and contraceptives but as long as its something they ENDORSE its perfectly fine to shame you and have the government regulate and control your lives to the nth degree.

    A party who once was the party of individual freedom is no longer. Replaced with COMMUNISTS. Make no mistake they are not socialists. They are COMMUNISTS which make socialists look like choir boys.
