New York’s pompous mayor is looking to get in on the socialist Green New Deal in order to bolster his slim hopes at landing the Democratic party nomination…
Bill de Blasio who is a dyed-in-the-wool commie whose embrace of the totalitarian nanny state is only secondary to his contempt for his own police force is drawing both criticism and praise over what he has dubbed “Meatless Monday” that will be imposed on New York schoolchildren in the upcoming school year.
With Democrats tripping over each other to sprint to the left, far be it for “Hizzonor” to not put his own unique stamp on the efforts to impose socialism on America and by God, if depriving children of their nutrition in order to serve his larger agenda is what it takes, then so be it.

The local New York Post blasted de Blasio, “Experimenting on kids: De Blasio’s ridiculous Meatless Monday stunt”:
In yet another bit of pseudo-moralistic preening, Mayor Bill de Blasio this week announced that the city’s public schools have moved to Meatless Mondays.
(Naturally, meatless Fridays are unthinkable: It’d seem to favor a single religion.)
“Cutting back on meat a little will improve New Yorkers’ health and reduce greenhouse emissions,” said the mayor. This will supposedly “keep our lunch and planet green for generations to come.”
Not so much. As NY1’s Grace Rauh quickly noted, Tuesday’s menu included BBQ bacon burgers and seasoned potato wedges.
Indeed, at a time when carbohydrates are increasingly seen as a major driver of America’s growing obesity problem, it’s hard to see much health benefit in Monday lunch offerings of pasta, meatless tacos and grilled cheese sandwiches. (Sure, “broccoli trees” are on offer, too, but how many wind up as compost?)
The city insists it’ll work fine, having experimented with a pilot project that began a year ago at 15 schools in Brooklyn. Then again, the mayor insisted his Renewal Schools program was a smashing success — right up until he pulled the plug on it.
What a shameless bastard, not even experimenting on kids is beyond this guy.
