It’s been a wild week. If you thought it the Left couldn’t get any crazier after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for an end to cows, airplanes and gas cars, you were wrong.
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., is now calling for an increase in the cost of meat to encourage veaganism.
Check out what Booker had to say in an interview with VegNews:
Booker told the vegan magazine VegNews earlier this month that he became vegan after coming to the realization that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.”
While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.
“You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet,” Booker said. “We’ve seen this massive increase in consumption of meat produced by the industrial animal agriculture industry.”
“The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact,” he said. “It’s just not possible.”
Another day in America and another day where the far Left wants to control more of your life.
Not only do they want to control your money, but now people like Booker want to control what you eat. Sorry Cory, but you can keep your veganism to yourself while we continue to eat our delicious meat.
Check out what Newt Gingrich had to say:
Democrats are getting weirder and weirder-Cory Booker says “planet simply can’t sustain people eating meat”. So Democrats can get the Vegan vote and Republicans can get everyone who goes to McDonald’s, Wendy’s Burger King, Arby’s Chick-filet, Outback, Ruth’s Chris, etc., etc.

Booker also explained how his “body just took off” when he started his vegan diet and decided to back up his feelings with science.
“I found the data that began to reaffirm my vegetarianism,” Booker said. “In fact, it led me to more about our environment and cruelty to animals. I began saying I was a vegetarian because, for me, it was the best way to live in accordance to the ideals and values that I have. My veganism started then.”
As an American, Booker has every right to choose how he would like to live his life and eat what he would like to eat.
But he does not have the authority to impose his views on the American people by increasing the price of meat.
This news comes just days after Ocasio-Cortez presented her wild ‘Green New Deal’ to Congress.
Booker, along with every other prominent 2020 liberal candidate, signed on to the Green New Deal, which calls for the “economic transformation” of the United States by transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy in just 10 years. Renewable energy currently accounts for just 17 percent of electricity generation.
Booker’s fight against dairy intersects with the aims of the Green New Deal. Initial plans put out by democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed ambitions to eliminate “farting cows.”
Let’s just be thankful that these Democrats do not have total control of America because if they did, our country would be in a downward spiral.
Maybe instead of focusing on eliminating cow farts and increasing the price of meat, Democrats should focus on improving the economy, border security and well-being of the American people!
