Everyone here understands the primary goal of the Humane Society of the United States is to end hunting in America, right? No one still thinks they just want to save cute puppies and kitties at your local animal shelter, correct? If there’s any doubt, get over to Humane Watch and see what they have to say about the HSUS and how the animal-rights organization is duping the public.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to the matter at hand. According to this article on the Daily Caller, schools in both California and Texas are forcing students to eat vegetarian through a campaign called Meatless Monday, which happens to be endorsed by the HSUS.
“And so, in the semi-rural town of Dripping Springs, Texas, for example, school district officials are choosing to force kids to forgo meat and poultry.
On Monday, the lunch menu at Rooster Springs Elementary School included meatless chili, meatless pizza, meatless burritos, some nachos “and more,” but no meat, reports Austin ABC affiliate KVUE. School districts in Houston and further west throughout California’s Bay Area are also foisting Meatless Mondays on students
Linda Carrozzi, the school district food director in San Francisco, lauded the new meal regime.
“Our school lunches really do embrace healthier lifestyle changes,” she told the Chronicle. “We tell them a little about the Humane Society and animals,” Carrozzi added. “I like how they talk about compassionate eating. I think the kids are very curious about that.”
Kristie Middleton, food policy manager for the Humane Society of the United States, defended Meatless Mondays because, she said, it could prevent the slaughter of some farm animals.”
I think it’s great that school cafeterias are offering vegetarian options, and I’m okay with them educating students about healthy eating. But during Meatless Mondays, there are no meat options offered. None. Kids are forced into a vegetarian diet, and worse yet, are being subjected to animal-rights propaganda under the guise of improving their diet.
And that, I can’t abide.
