The Daily Mail reported that parents are upset with a British nursery’s decision to introduce a 100 percent vegan menu for all of the children.
Jigsaw Day Nurseries in Chester plans on introducing the new menu on January, which would remove meat, fish, eggs and dairy products and set up a full-fledged plant-based diet for its 260 children, who are 0-4 years of age.
Parents criticized this move claiming that the decision was made without being informed from the outset. Some of the parents argued that the nurseries are “imposing a lifestyle choice” which “discriminates” against children who eat meat.
Staff at the two nurseries plan to offer lentil-based “’Shepherdless Pie”, coconut rice pudding desserts, and serve cereal with soy or oat milk.
The founder of the nurseries, Claire Taylor, defended this move which she believes was “’made with the children and the planet’s future in mind.”
One of the mothers, who has a three-year-old daughter enrolled at Jigsaw Curzon House Nursery and remained anonymous, stated: “Just to enforce it on us without any say isn’t right – they shouldn’t be making these decisions on my behalf.”
She added, “If my daughter wants to be a vegan when she’s older then that’s fine but I’ll have that conversation with her myself.”
Additionally, another parent, who remained anonymous, stated: “To impose a lifestyle choice on these children before they can make their own mind up is plain wrong. If anything, it discriminates against those kids who enjoy a diet of meat and fish. To ban them from eating meat is outrageous. It’s simply not their decision to make.”
On the other hand, other parents have praised the move on social media and encouraged other nurseries to follow in Jigsaw Curzon House Nursery’s footsteps.
Natalie Stevens posted on Facebook: “It’s like saying you don’t want your children to be educated in what will save our planet. Vegan or not, this is an incredibly healthy sounding menu and I am thrilled our son will be eating this kind of food.”
Rebecca Louise Cusato gave her two cents: “If parents want their children to eat meat they can at home for Dinner. We are not supposed to consume meat in every meal as humans anyway. It’s an economically friendly diet, that involves no animal abuse or unsustainable sources. I just think some people need to be more educated on the word Vegan and what unsustainable sources are doing to the environment.”
Dieting is another front of the political correctness wars.
Bashing the consumption of meat has become a fad among climate change activists and other factions of the Left.
Many believe that meat consumption contributes to global warming.
To solve this, several political candidates have offered the idea of taxing meat.
If they can’t get legislative means of curbing meat consumption, the Left will gladly try to shame meat eaters in private institutions like Jigsaw Curzon House Nursery and impose their dietary standards in private institutions.
Even mundane actives such as eating habits, are not exempt from the left’s busybody activism.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
