Fox & Friends knows that healthy school lunches are an affront to real Americans kids who should be able to stuff down as much fatty food as they can because freedom. Any attempt to provide healthy, nutritional food is seen as downright treasonous and, as such, is featured in the now patented Fox & Friends "Trouble with Schools" agitprop. The aganda behind Fox's opposition to the school lunch program seems to stem from the fact that the school standards are part of the First Lady's attempt to get kids to be healthy. But in an astounding and surreal moment of irony, this morning's Fox & Friends featured a guest who says that a one day meatless school lunch menu, done by a TX school districk to encourage healthy eating and environmental awareness, is an agenda driven conspiracy by nefarious anti-meat forces!
Steve Doocy led off the"Trouble with Schools" segment: "When your kids head off to school do you ever wonder what they're really gonna eat for lunch you know all of those choices. Now more and more schools are changing their menus to make Mondays meatless like it or not." (The last part of his statement was said incredulously) The chyron defined the message that these poor kids are being forced to eat this socialistic garbage: "Meatless Mondays, More Schools Imposing Meat Free Menu On Kids."
As the visual went full screen "Trouble with Schools," Hasselbeck introduced Texas Commissioner of Education Todd Staples whose job is make sure the schools meet those nasty FLOTUS inspired standards of nutrition. She zeroed in on the Fox propaganda message for the piece when she said that he thinks that these standards "are brainwashing our kids." (One could say if they're being educated in Texas, their brains are on spin dry but I digress....)
Hasselbeck provide some scripted "counterpoint" when she said that in examining the menu it "seems tasty" and asked what the problem is. Staples, who gets beaucoup bucks from big meat, said while this menu is fine, the problem is the "meatless Monday campaign" which "is an agenda driven campaign" be a nefarious cabal of vegetarians who really want to impose their godless, socialistic ways on kids each day of the week. He blamed obesity (big in Texas) on inactivity and not having a balanced diet and claimed that the meatless Mondays is "sending a wrong message to our kids." He claimed that this "isn't about meat" but about "hunger" (WTF?) and "we need to educate our kids the right way and not have agenda driven campaigns." The chyron framed the propaganda nicely: "Where's the Beef, Forcibly Feeding Kids Meatless Mondays' Meals."
Doocy tossed the talking point: "So you say meatless Mondays are brainwashing?" Staples agreed "because we know that a balance diet is what children need and the people who are really pushing it are saying that having meatless Monday options is somehow a healthier option menu and that it's better for the environment." (And we know that concern for the environment is part of a commie plot to undermine our school system.) He identified the meatless Monday conspirators as anti-animal activists who "are trying to blame animals for some of our environmental problems." He said that if these evil doers were really concerned about health they would promote a "walk to school Wednesdays."
Hasselbeck responded, "interesting point." She asked about "choice" and - IRONY ALERT - asked "why should our children be subjected to such propaganda." Staples said that if kids want a vegetarian option, that should be available. (Nobody mentioned that the kids are free to bring lunches with meat.) The chyron reinforced the propaganda as Fox Fact: "Agenda-Driven Diet, Motivation Behind 'Meatless Monday' Menu." Staples whined about how a certain type of food "shouldn't be castigated" because that gives "a false impression" that the meatless meals "are healthier for the environment and healthier for them as individuals." (Uh, it is but who need science!) He accused people of being "obsessed" with Obamacare (?) and exhorted folks not to "use our schools as a venue to promote something that is really not sound science, not fact based." Doocy who, last week, said school districts should be able to make their own decisions, concluded with this: "Give them a choice, sounds like sound advice."
Talk about an agenda that isn't fact based........
Why are Catholics forcing their religion on others?
“A few years before the Vatican relaxed the rules, Lou Groen, an enterprising McDonald’s franchise owner in a largely Catholic part of Cincinnati, found himself struggling to sell burgers on Fridays. His solution? The Filet-O-Fish.”
So, this man, based on his Catholic faith, decided to sell fish to his customers.
Inside this hideous skyscraper in midManhattan is a cafeteria called News Cafe. Their menu consists of healthy items such as granola bars, apples, oranges, yogurt, salads, healthy sandwiches, apple and orange juices, Naked Juice, etc. For a small fee, employees can work out their frustrations at the gym.
Now my head hurts.
Most schools now say they can’t afford to offer multiple food choices. And if it’s too expensive to provide the government’s healthy food suggestions, how can it be any cheaper to offer students a choice of entrees? Even if the variety of entrees are nothing but highly processed frozen foods, the schools are going to wind up with a fair amount of waste if they’ve got to feed 1000 kids; the schools aren’t going to know which kids want chicken nuggets versus hamburgers each day (let’s say they make 500 servings of chicken and 500 burgers but the first 500 kids in line scarf up the burgers and the next dozen kids in line wanted a burger but have to “make do” with the chicken; kids are pretty fickle—the next day they make more burgers and some kids whine because they wanted the chicken but the cafeteria ran out).
