Fox and Friends To Florida Inmates: Let Them Eat Soy

Reported by Aunty Em - November 10, 2011 -

The Foxy Friends on Fox and Friends proved Wednesday morning they don’t even need guests to push the Fox “News” agit-prop, or to have some fun at someone else’s expense. At issue was Eric Harris, an inmate in central Florida who is suing for “cruel and unusual punishment” because the prison system is serving a soy-laden, meat-free vegan diet. According to the Florida News Journal “Harris is claiming that it has threatened his thyroid, caused painful gastrointestinal cramping, and compromised his immune system, all things which he says are medical problems for him and are listed as possible side effects of eating too much soy.” However, you wouldn’t hear any of that from The Three Stooges, who seemed to be echoing Bizarro Marie Antoinette. Watch:

Steve Doocy: Where in the world are prisoners guaranteed a right to meat?

Brian Kilmeade: Right.

Gretchen Carlson: I guess we gotta give them 3 meals a day, but I dunno. What do you think about this? Is this “lawsuits run amok” that somebody would actually be able to sue over this? And, what will it do to the Florida taxpayers if, in fact, they win this lawsuit? Get ready to pay more taxes because right now you’re given $47 million a year to the food budget. It’s gonna double.

BK: Or do you side—or does your heart go out to this sex offender?

Doocy wrapped up by suggesting Harris actually owes the prison a big “thank you” since doctors say eating less meat is healthier for you. However, according to the Weston A. Price Foundation, which helped Harris bring his lawsuit, Florida inmates have been complaining about “chronic and painful constipation alternating with debilitating diarrhea, vomiting after consumption, sharp pains in the digestive tract, especially after consuming soy, passing out, heart palpitations, rashes, acne, insomnia, panic attacks, depression and symptoms of hypothyroidism such as low body temperature (feeling cold all the time), brain fog, fatigue, weight gain or loss, frequent infections and overt thyroid disease.”

Yes, Gretchen, I guess we gotta give them 3 meals a day, so “Let them eat soy!”
