Are liberal politicians shaking down McDonald’s?
Liberals Versus McDonald’s
by Jeff Davis
The War On Ronald McDonald continues apace in liberal-land. A CBS News article reports: “San Francisco’s already done it, and now New York may follow suit. [Black] New York City Councilman Leroy Comrie thinks the city should consider a ban on Happy Meals and similar fast food promotions aimed at kids unless those meals meet certain nutritional standards. Comrie planned to introduce his own bill Wednesday that would essentially rewrite what could currently be considered a Happy Meal. The bill would require establishments that offer toys with food make sure the meals are 500 calories or less and have low fat and low sodium totals. Penalties would be steep: between $200 to $2,500 for repeat restaurant offenders who use toys to sell unhealthy meals.”
Someone should explain to this imbecile that it’s none of his damned business what people eat. Too many liberal politicians think they have the power to micro-manage our lives. Well, they don’t.
CBS goes on: “Comrie said fast food restaurants know exactly what they’re doing. ‘It comes as no surprise that these ads and meals are also targeted in low income and minority neighborhoods that are already at risk for childhood obesity. These are the same communities that have limited access to supermarkets, limited access to healthy food options,’ Comrie said.”
They have limited access to supermarkets because the last supermarket in their all-Black neighborhoods went out of business due to shoplifting –by the Blacks. Today insurance premiums for supermarkets in bad neighborhoods would go through the roof, and the hygiene problems alone would be staggering. Would you want to buy fruit and vegetables that have been pawed over by negro junkies and illegal immigrants from every hellhole in the Third World?
Most likely this Black politician is trying to do a shakedown aimed at McDonald’s. Perhaps they’ll donate to his next election so he shuts the heck up. McDonald’s might also introduce some new salad item that not one single Black or Latino kid will ever order, but it’s all just a big game.
In the larger scheme of things, the liberals have hated McDonalds for generations because it is a symbol of successful capitalism. McDonald’s provides entry-level employment for young people and others who otherwise would be on a government check of some kind and beholden to the Democrats. And we can’t have that, now, can we?
But not to worry, New York. Your Big Mac is safe. Mickey D’s will probably be able to fight this one off with a few discreet campaign contributions to Democratic lawmakers.
