Fox & Friends is all about freedom, except, of course, when it comes to atheists putting up billboards or the right to choose the outcome of a pregnancy. And, as tireless advocates of liberty, those on Fox & Friends knows that nothing should get in the way of the freedom of God fearing, fast food loving American kids to stuff as much fatty foods down their gullet as humanly possible. Any attempts to curtail this basic, American liberty is seen as an incursion of the kind of creeping Marxism that we know is taking over American schools, especially in the form of nutritional guidelines espoused by the wife of our Marxist president and her government minions. Fox & Friends seeks to end this Food Police" brutality so this morning, those who fight for the right for American kids to have one of the highest obesity rates in the world, proudly reported that American kids are fighting the power
Steve Doocy began the segment with "ah, the food police" as a visual, with the words "food police" superimposed on a picture of children, was shown. He reported that with "barely a week under their belts" (ever expanding) America's "hungry high schoolers are already fed up with what is being served for lunch." Anna Kooiman said that these poor, deprived kids are claiming that "they are being starved by the mandates requiring small portions of health foods." As the chyron read "Hungry High Schoolers, Students Unhappy with New Federal Lunch Rules," she introduced her guest, a South Carolina student who, according to Kooiman, has started a petition to bring back the pizza and French fries.
After Kooiman said that the kids are hungry because they're not finishing their meals, she asked how pizza and fries would satisfy them. Madeline Taylor explained that the students aren't unhappy with the menu choices but "it's the way it's being served and prepared" which "is making students not want to eat at all." She added that because students aren't eating the food, it's being wasted. The chyron read "Fed up, Students Taking a Stand Against School Lunches."
Doocy explained that because many kids rely on the low prices of school lunches, the problem of student hunger is "of great concern to parents and teachers." The chyron: "Tossing School Lunches, Students Go Hungry or Bring Food From Home." Taylor spoke about how many students in her district are on free or reduced lunches because they can't afford to bring their own lunches. She asserted that these kids won't be eating the school food because "it's not good, it doesn't taste good, and it's not appealing." The chyron: "Hunger Gamers, Students and Parents Upset About School Lunch." Taylor expressed concern about how this hunger could express school performance.
As she described her petition to get healthier choices on the menu, the chyron read "Pizza Petition, 600 + Signatures to Get Back Pizza and Fries." She recommended that "the unhealthy choices" be brought back until the healthy choices become available and that way students wouldn't eat unhealthy stuff when they went home. Working in that last bit of agitprop, Doocy added "that's right and they're not sitting there in class for four hours starving cuz that doesn't really help anybody."
Despite the Fox & Friends messaging, Taylor isn't trying to just get pizza and fries on the menu seemed to be the substance of the Fox messaging. She is concerned, as is the school district, about providing healthy and quality food. Fox & Friends is concerned about providing propaganda to advance their meme about how the evil Obama "food police" are causing kids to go hungry. (But hungry adults are moochers if they get food stamps!) Watching Fox & Friends makes one want to toss one's meal - but in a different sense of the word!
Note: During the entire piece, the graphic next to the chyron featured a visual of a McDonald's French fry package, a soda bottle, and an ear of corn - not exactly good nutrition!)
“Fox News wish: That every kid be as obese as Rush Blimpbaugh & Roger Whailes.”
LOL! Sad but VERY true Jan. Limpblob and Jabba the Ailes are both capable of generating 7.1 Richter scale earthquakes when they walk!
As for this student, I only have this to say:
Kid… I don’t care which one you do, but you need to either fuck off, or get over yourself. It’s not the school’s place to ply you with junk food, and if you really have such piss-poor self-control that you need to eat Pizza and French Fries for lunch every day, then you have a serious problem- One that the school would be enabling by bringing them back. Go stack up on party pizzas and bags of your own goddamn fries, if you need it so bad, and quit wasting my time.
Seriously, this is such a first-world problem that even the Kardashians would tell you to butch up.
As they shove words into this pretty-little-face/empty-head…..“yes sir…definitely…..”
How ugly and pathetic. Sell your soul to the devil, young lady (with no scruples)
Kids whose families can’t afford to pay for their lunches are not going to have healthy food choices at home. They are going to be eating the cheap junk food (like pizza) that their parents can afford, and will not be getting expensive fruits and veggies.
