The Biden administration has been at great pains to dispel the crazy Republican notion that the Green New Deal and other policies the administration is touting would necessarily lead to a dramatic reduction in the amount of beef a person could consume. “Fact-checkers” throughout the media universe unanimously decried the notion as preposterous in the extreme.
This is itself somewhat disingenuous, as the Green New Deal does propose measures to dramatically reduce the environmental footprint left by cows and steers. It suggests that reducing bovine flatulence will be a giant step towards saving the planet, something that will necessarily include limiting the production of beef.
Amusingly, almost immediately after the supposedly bogus Republican stories claiming that tyrannical leftists want to limit your consumption of beef surfaced, Condé Nast's culinary magazine Epicurious announced that it will no longer publish beef recipes, proudly noting that it can’t, in good conscience, continue to give "airtime to one of the world's worst climate offenders." Epicurious tweeted, "Today we announced that Epicurious is cutting out beef. It won't appear in new Epi recipes, articles, newsletters, or on social. This isn't a vendetta against cows or people who eat them. It's a shift about sustainability; not anti-beef but pro-planet."
Which is utter and complete bullshit of course, speaking of bovinity. Here we see the specter of a progressive culinary magazine lying about virtue-signaling in its attempt to cancel cows. In direct contravention of Biden administration wishes, no less.
It would behoove those in the lamestream media and the Biden administration to tell the truth from time to time. But they just can’t bring themselves to do so.
We should all have a beef with that.
