What’s behind the sudden wave of anti-meat propaganda? “Follow the money…”

Rebel Staff

You can see the official narrative when it launches.

For years, no-one talked about transgenderism. There were drag queens, and transvestites, but it wasn’t a thing. In five years it’s gone from nothing to the Olympics.

Now I see another such narrative — anti-meat, anti-beef.

Vegetarianism was always fringe. There are vegetarians for religious reasons, I get it. And there may be some health reasons, for some people.

Then in the last few months, the narrative just hit.

You’d see it in weird, creepy stories. Like the United Nations, whose executives dine in five-star restaurants, telling the rest of us that we’ll have to start eating bugs, and liking it. I’m not making this up.

The Weather Network told us to stop eating beef:

If you really want to help save the planet, you could seriously consider limiting the amount of beef you eat.

That’s not news, and that’s not science. That's propaganda. 

Just today, we got this:

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says the call to help combat climate change by eating more plants and less meat is fully in line with Canada’s new food guide recommendations.

I see that next month, McKenna is hosting a luxury fundraiser at Ottawa’s fanciest restaurant. I won’t call it just a steakhouse because they serve all sorts of meats.  The fundraiser is $250 to get in.

So, yeah, you little people — can you please give up your hamburgers, for the sake of the planet? But the ruling class will eat its steak. Catherine McKenna says it’s fine, so you can trust her.

Now, just look at what the trendy meat substitutes contain:

Here’s the National Post’s analysis, comparing a leading brand of fake meat, called Beyond Meat, to a real burger:

A 113-gram Beyond Meat patty has 250 calories, 18 grams of fat, 390 milligrams of sodium and 20 grams of protein. Health Canada says 113 grams of lean ground beef contain 292 calories, 16.5 grams of fat, 105 milligrams of sodium and 33 grams of protein.

So the fake meat has about the same number of calories. It actually has more fat. It has triple the salt — I’m not surprised. How else are you going to make proceeded vegetable protein taste palatable? And you’re only getting about half the protein.

It’s hyper-processed. There’s no way you can actually say those Beyond Meat patties are good for you.

So why is everyone from the UN to Catherine McKenna telling us not to eat meat anymore?

Well, follow the money. TONIGHT I'll explain...

NEXT: We heard about this phenomenon a lot after the 2016 U.S. election — families being split apart because they didn't like how their relatives voted.

Well, it is still going on, and author and broadcaster Michael Knowles joins me to talk about it.

FINALLY: Your letters to me!

Justin thought he had all bad news suppressed guess not.
If Yawn meat made from politicians to be fed to unsuspecting other politicians I would be all for it.
I was raised on elk,moose,deer,rabbit. Not safe way elk as we called it.

Good videos; thanks.
The undercover videos of Planned Parenthood were revealing how much baby parts are being used in various industries.
Not only Pepsi, but Nestle’s and Kraft food use them.
Cosmetics use baby parts/stem cells.
Vaccines use baby stem cells.

Animals are consumed by humans, but the animals are fed soy. Soy is GMO’d.

It’s a sick world. Madonna eats unborn calves as did Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Madonna also had a coat made from unborn calves. The baby cows were removed from the womb for her special meal and coat.
It’s a sick world.
(In defense of people who are true vegans: vegans and many vegetarians do not eat anything that remotely resembles, smells like or tastes like animals. These companies and government are redefining ‘vegan’ and making these meat look a like/taste like sick foods trendy for their own purpose.)

That’s not fair Robert Greeley,
Trudopians are always invading my Island and the rest of the New Canadian Nation won’t back us up with military force.

Once the divorce is in motion.. Each current Canadian Military Person could place a vote on which path they will take and uphold.. You remember..? The meaning of Democracy? Not Trudeau’s version.. They are putting their lives on the line.. They must vote.. it’s all up to them to decide.

We would still be allies with Trudopeia.. How much of an ally would be up to Trudeau and his negotiating crew?

- The anti-meat propaganda sounds just like the climate hysteria propaganda. It seems to be being pushed by the same people. I wouldn’t trust any food guide that Climate Barbie had anything to do with. If I want vegetables I’ll eat vegetables. If I want meat I’ll eat meat. I won’t eat this new fake meat. Enough people were foolish enough to buy into climate hysteria so now they’re using the same means to manipulate markets for their own profit.

- The left is getting more & more insane over time. Doxing people, attacking people wearing MAGA hats, pushing people to break up their families, etc. The more they get away with these things the further they take it. God does not want us to worship him for his sake, he wants us to worship him for our sake. People have a need for worship & if it isn’t God it’ll be something else. It’s like living in the time before Noah. The rainbow won’t protect us – it’s only a promise that there won’t be another world wide flood.

If it isn’t the oil industry the gov’t is trying to kill then they will try to kill the meat industry as well. Notice how both of these industries are based in the west. Kill western Canadian industries, but save SNC Lavalin and Bombardier because that will hopefully keep the Liberals in by winning the eastern voters. Next thing you know they’ll be kicking farmers off their own property just like in South Africa. Canada has been extremely blessed with an abundance of food. Want to see Venezuela food lines in Canada? Keep ruining the Agriculture industry. Control the food and you control the people. I guess this is a step in that direction. The left loves control. Maduro would approve.

Elizabeth May says that if we don’t get off fossil fuels by this October that , “the earth will heat to unsafe levels and there will be climate catastrophe.”

These people are literally insane. Why are insane people in positions of power in this country? I cannot believe some of the things I read on their twitter pages. They are evangelists pushing their new religion down everyone’s throats.
Who is more batty, Lizzy May or Climate old yeller Barbie?

Elizabeth, does that mean you are going to give up your new hubbie’s sports car? Before October Elizabeth, before October.

God bless you. I buy beef by the 1/4 or 1/2. My vegetables are green thanks to co2. I don’t use Tim Hortons. I still boycott. Science is just people trying to figure out what God did. Thanks Michael. Hope you get beatified. Love to have you on my side. Don’t worry rebel. Just tell us where and when and we’ll bail you out. This new cult/religion ( same as the old pagan one) has no authority, doomed to fail.

If you get thrown in prison, Ezra, I’ll bring you a veggie burger.

If it were just sawdust veggie sammies that would be bad enough but this is what I will NOT eat.

It makes me feel sick just to think about it. And where do they get enough stem cells from when there aren’t enough animals bred to feed the planet real steak let alone grow enough of the stuff. These people have gone right off the edge.

I have been hearing about this garbage for a while. I won’t eat any fastfood anymore or anything that looks like mystery meat. I buy meat at a reputable butcher, never the supermarket. God, I would hate to have to feed a family these days. I have wild fowl, deer and rabbit where I live, I’ll eat those before I buy their damn mystery meat. Tough times ahead if these commies get away with all of their crazy agenda.
The time to scream about it is now.

How are we gonna defend ourselves? Those people aren’t with us! They come, they streak, they surf, they get high and leave their trash around.
We need strong borders with those people.

The key element in all evil people is their sense of super high self worth. This is also why you can’t argue with a leftist, b/c to be wrong, would to to crush, not just their ego but their entire self image.

What we’re witnessing, is the ramp up to war. 1) is the super high self worth, which leads to 2) Looking down one’s nose at others and devaluing their lives, as through late term abortion, and even post birth abortion, with one woman saying it’s ok to kill your kids up to age 4, as they’re not yet self-aware, which leads to 3) Getting people used to violence, stomping on their free speech and other rights, tossing them in jail for their opinions, like Tommy.

Let’s file a divorce/separation with Trudeau’s first post Nation.. Trudopeia.. I’m serious.. Enter it now.. Northern Ontario has done some ground work to become a Province on it’s own separated from Southern Ontario.. Let’s get this separation/divorce rolling and let Trudeau become a dictator on his Trudopeian worshippers. Then Trudeau has to be invited to Whistler if he wants to snow board on our New Canada Nation.. on Trudopeians dime.. not ours.. He can send Freeland to negotiate with the New Canada Nation Representatives to buy our Oil if they want. We will be fair. Why should we stay in a house that is rotted from the roof down to the basement?

Trudeau and his worshippers want to divide Canada anyways.. Let’s give them their Trudopeia.. and they can Govern themselves.

Soy is one of the worst GMO’d foods.

Oh this is good.
Everybody Google “plant based synthetic meat ingredients”.
STARCHES GALORE! Potatoes, yeast, veggie oil… Ah! It’s a Irishmen’s 21st century death sentence.
How would I like to gain 40lbs in ten weeks on that cripe?
I say we hit the market where it hurts and ban starchy foods. No corn flakes, cakes, rice, POTATOES, oats and the list goes on…
Let’s actually sell good food with whole wheat or demand it because potatoes are harder to grow than a cow.
I’m so ostracized in my country because of the dependence on starchy foods. Where do I fit in? 😋

The lefts are also promoting industrial farming (mega greenhouses) to force farmers into bankruptcy and unemployment.
That way the foods produced can be controlled (GMO’d).

1. Promoting vegan diets is the left’s attack on the beef industry.
2. MacDonalds have stated they will not introduce a vegetarian burger and they are improving their buns instead!
3. These plant based foods are processed, fast food, just like what was introduced in the 50’s with meat. They are filled with ingredients that are difficult to digest and hard on the GI system. eg. carageenan is used in most patties as a filler (Yves products and most others) and it is a carcinogen. Carageenan is also used in cat food, toothpaste, condiments, many products you wouldn’t even think would have it.
4. To practice a true vegan regime, it takes lots of time and energy (preparing vegetables, etc.), money (because these items are perishable), and lots of studying to learn how to identify all the food/nutritional requirements (eg. fiber, proteins).
5. Most people don’t last with a vegan diet because it’s just too much work or else they end up eating junk and then gain weight. It’s a real chore.
6. If Mckenna had any brains, she’d be encouraging people to eat correctly and make balanced homemade meals.
7. The lefts (in Canada) are promoting it the way they promoted pot.
8. The lefts want everyone to be pot smoking, veggie eating, hippies.
Pardon me while I go cook up some tofu now………haven’t had a burger since 1986.
It would be so much easier to eat meat!

Justin: Gerry this is bad, 69,300 private sector workers just lost their jobs and revenues are down. How are we going to pay for our luxury flights on High-as-a-Kite One?
Gerry: No problem Justin we’ll just tell all the little people that we need to charge another carbon tax on meat so we can fight climate change.
Justin: Yeah, that old chestnut works every time. What a bunch of maroons. I’ll get Climate Barbie right on it.

Well they may be able to kill the Beef industry but they will not want to kill the foul Fowl Excreting merchants, that would be anti socialist.
One thing is certain, in my opinion at least, Ezra is having to be very careful about the topics he airs on the Rebel. Big brother is watching and Canada in four short years has become a Marxist State.
commented 2019-08-09 20:59:46 -0400
If I could run a fast food restaurant that served nothing but whole grains and no starches, I would be earning billions in the market share.
Guess how many of us are built to weather a famine in Ireland? I smell a starchy potatoes, I store it in my gut.
Whole grains, less processing and more money in the pocket.
Go get rich everyone.

Every socialist regressive attack is an attack on the necessities of life. If the elites control the necessities, they control the populace.

Carbon based energy, which also relates to clothing and shelter via synthetics, is attacked.

The attack on forestry which is important to shelter and celluloid products.

Now the attack on meat, the most efficient method to obtain protein for a scavenger species like humans…sorry…hupeople. Vegetarians and vegans should not become complacent either because the large scale agriculture which enables a successful non-meat diet is also Targeted. In short, the attack on food.

And we have heard about water catastrophe from the UN. Also note that bottled potable water is not to be tolerated because…plastic.

Next, the air we breathe…oh right…carbon dioxide tax.

I guess we don’t need vitamin B12, Iron, zinc or omega 3 fatty acids either.
Guess how much land you have to have to grow how many vegetables squeezed into a brick of margarine?
Margarine burgers. Yum!

I agree with your conjecture about the fake meet movement. Thanks for exposing the facts that these replacement products have much higher fat and salt content. By the way, I’ve heard that granola has more fat and other things than people think. Also, that promo video about cattle didn’t mention which animal was compared to cows needing 20% more land.
