The Food Nazis are headed your way!

Get ready. Get some placards and pickets ready because we've got another injustice which needs able bodies to stand-up, make some noise and make a difference--kind of like "hope & change." We're talking about "Food Justice." That's right, food justice.

Google "food justice" and you'll get an idea that here is another movement of "whiners" percolating just beneath the surface.

I'm sure many of you reading this are ready to sign-up for the food justice movement. You probably lost sleep last night because you were worrying about the current food injustice that exists here in America.

What am I talking about? What is Tracie McMillan talking about in her book, "The American Way of Eating?" I won't link to her book because I would hope you have better things to do with your time. This is an author who has apparently hates capitalism. It oozes out her writings.

Food justice is about everybody in the U.S. at any place, being able to eat fresh, well-prepared food. Now, that means that if you have access to a Caesar salad and choose to eat a Big Mac, Ms. McMillan and the food Nazis will help you make the right choice by taxing the Big Mac or your Dairy Queen Blizzard. If you don't think this can happen, just look at the attack on cigarettes with a move on to even make it illegal to smoke in your own car or home. You see, whatever the group, be they smoke Nazis or food Nazis, they are not happy until they can control and regulate how you live your life.

If you don't believe me, just look at what the Food Nazis have done in public schools. In most schools, kids can't buy a Coke, or candy bar. Some schools in Chicago and North Carolina are not allowing kids to bring certain items in their school lunches. Many schools already ban anything made with peanut butter. How did we ever survive growing up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? In many schools, students go through the lunch line and are told that they have to choose at least one healthy item like carrots or broccoli which invariably gets thrown in the trash.

This just in (5/31/12): NY Bans Over-sized sugary drinks (front page headline in USA Today). The proposed first-in-the-nation ban would impose a 16-ounce limit on the size of sweetened drinks sold at restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts. It would apply to bottled drinks as well as fountain sodas. (This is what I'm talking about.) The Food Nazis know better than you what you should eat & drink. So first, it's sugary sodas which area already banned from many public schools. Then it will be sugary snacks. Then Quarter-pounders, and KFC fried chicken. This is only the beginning. The Food Nazis will not be happy until you diet consists of tofu, salads and hummus. Don't get me wrong, I eat as much hummus as the next guy, and love salads. But it's my choice. I don't want it being forced down my throat by Michael Bloomberg in NYC or some other bureaucrat.

Food Justice is about making healthy food available in every corner of the U.S. including the inner city ghetto. But they won't stop there, they will want to change the menus at McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King & Taco Bell, as well as school menus. They will also propose additional taxes on junk food and sooner-or-later, you'll see food justice lawsuits, just as the environmental movement has made its advancements via lawsuits.

  • What would it take for all of us to eat healthy? But why stop there.
  • What would it take for all of us to have a new car?
  • What would it take for all of us to have 52" flat screen tvs along with a high-def DVR?
  • What would it take for all of us to have access to free birth control pills?
  • What would it take for all of us to have a summer home on the beach?
  • What would it take for all of us to air conditioning?
  • What would it take for all of us to have free prescriptions?
  • What would it take for all of us to have free childcare?
  • What would it take for all of us to have free tuition to the college or university of our choice? 
  • What would it take for all of us to have free medical care? (Oh, we've already got it. Obamacare.)
If any of the above strike your fancy, then there is a movement just waiting for you to start.Who knows, like Tracie McMillan, you might get a book deal and find yourself as a guest being interviewed on MSNBC or CNN where they're always looking for the next new left-wing movement.


  1. I just skimmed this article and while I agree that we should be free to choose what we eat, and that food should not be banned... I'm not for the government subsidizing the junk food in America (corn based). Junk food has the appearance of being cheap because of these subsidies, and consequently the fresh organic market is so pitifully small (because of that), how can they compete? If the gov't wants in, even the playing field.

  2. Just found this blog, and I agree! You know, I honestly think that the old devil is creeping into the churches with this issue. Not kidding....it seems that you can hardly have a church potluck anymore. Women especially are turning into food nazis at church. What are these "Christian" versions of the food police? They go full-force into every food fad out there. Over the past 10 years we've gone from low or nonfat everything, to no carbs, low carbs, no meat, no dairy, no trans fats, no peanut butter, and now no gluten! What's left? These ladies act like they are better than the rest of us. However, they really aren't any healthier.....they all get sick and have issues just like anybody else. They stand back and make comments about what is in the food and what they won't/will eat. They make statements like: "We are Christians! We shouldn't be serving donuts and muffins on Sunday! They aren't good for you." Sooooo tired of it. I honestly think Satan is getting people caught up in food obsessions so that it will hinder us from fellowship and the breaking of bread together.....Oooops! Did I say bread? Better be gluten free! I always go back to the Bible. All foods were declared clean, and I highly doubt that Christ would use wheat bread to feed the masses if it were bad, or use it for communion. Get over it, people!
