Commissar De Blasio Declares NYC Schools Meatless On Mondays To Stop ‘Climate Change’

Before heading to Comrade Bill (can’t wait till someone publishes a photo of him eating meat on Mondays), let’s see what the always loopy Paul Krugman has to say, as he rages about Conservatives raging on the Internet about certain things

The Power of Petty Personal Rage

…..By all accounts, the biggest applause line at the Conservative Political Action Conference — eliciting chants of “U-S-A, U-S-A!” — was the claim that Democrats are coming for your hamburgers, just like Stalin. (They aren’t, and for the record, Stalin was a mass murderer, but objectively pro-burger.)

What do these things have in common? All of them involve cases where individual choices impose costs on other people. Plastic straws really are a source of ocean pollution. While nobody is planning to ban beef, flatulent cows really are an important source of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. And phosphates contribute to toxic algae blooms.

Narrator: yes they are. How did Paul miss this as he was writing his missive?


New York Mayor Bill De Blasio announced Monday that all New York City public schools will have “Meatless Mondays” beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.

The program, first piloted in Spring 2018 for 15 Brooklyn schools, will offer students all-vegetarian breakfast and lunch menus every Monday.

“Cutting back on meat a little will improve New Yorkers’ health and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said de Blasio in a press statement. “We’re expanding Meatless Mondays to all public schools to keep our lunch and planet green for generations to come.”

Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza concurred, saying, “Meatless Mondays are good for our students, communities, and the environment.”

“Our 1.1 million students are taking the next step towards healthier, more sustainable lives,” he added. “Our students and educators are truly leaders in this movement, and I salute them!”

Um, no, they aren’t, because they aren’t doing it voluntarily, this is the force of government dictating life choices. I wonder if Commissar Bill will restrict students from bringing their own food which includes meat? Whatever happened to choice?

The move to a vegetarian-based diet once a week for New York City public school children comes on the heels of Democrats in Washington pushing veganism in their Green New Deal plan.

I wonder if Bill will do this for all those who work for the City of New York? Or, hey, perhaps he’ll stop taking all those fossil fueled trips to Italy for vacations.

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with skimming a few bucks from federally funded school lunch programs.

    What happened to all those dietary guidelines that require meat? I guess that doesn’t matter since this is more government force overriding previous government force. As long as it’s government force it’s all okay.

    If i was in that school system i would make it a point to bring the biggest juiciest hamburger i could get for lunch on Monday. The next Monday I would bring in about a pound of pork ribs or a pulled pork sandwich. And I would continue to do it. If challenged by a teacher or the school I would sue their sorry asses into oblivion

    Big deal. School kids have to put up with a lot, don’t they. Do they currently have full choice for the breakfasts and lunches they receive at school? Do they get to choose between fish, beef, chicken, pork and tofu Tuesday through Friday? I didn’t think so.

    The gov’t forces them to go to school. The gov’t forces their parents to stop at STOP signs. The gov’t forces their parents to pay taxes. The gov’t forces them not to abuse their children. The gov’t forces people not to marry 14 year old girls.

    Maybe you didn’t realize… In the 2017-18 school year, more than 150 million breakfasts and lunches were served free of charge. … In NYC they serve millions of free meals and you’re snowflaked about them cutting meat one day a week? But choice!!

    Dr. Krugman is right about cons being perpetually aggrieved, victimized snowflakes. “They’re” coming for our hamberders!! “They” asked if I needed a straw!! Stalin was anti-straw, too!!

    Perhaps if Mayor deBlasio — who decries people having great wealth, even though, according to Celeb Siren he has a net worth of $145,000,000 — had, instead of ‘Meatless Mondays’ had suggested meatless Fridays, which would also be an accommodation for Catholic students during Lent, he’d have received a more positive response.
