While Americans enjoy the Labor Day weekend by firing up their barbecues, the rabid left is ready to come for their hamburgers.
Not content with stealing the money from productive citizens to fund their scams like reparations and freebies for Millenials and stomping on free speech with the jackboot of forced diversity, the socialists now want to tell everybody what to eat too.

Senator Bernie Sanders who has gone from an obscure crank to the American Lenin in a few short years has said that he is on board with a tax on meat much to the joy of vegans with an authoritarian streak.
During a campaign stop in South Carolina on Friday, the communist cadaver responded to a question that if he is elected president that he would shakedown everyone in the USA with a federal tax on meat.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) revealed on Friday that he is open to imposing a federal tax on meat and other animal products in an attempt to preserve the planet’s natural resources and help to combat climate change.
“As you probably know, animal agriculture is to blame for the majority of climate change and is the leading cause of deforestation, water and air pollution, and biodiversity loss. With that being known, what do you plan on doing to ensure that Americans limit their consumption of animal products?” a constituent asked Sanders at a campaign event in South Carolina. “Germany has imposed a meat tax in hopes of limiting this consumption,” she continued. “What are your plans to stop these large corporations from further usurping natural resources and polluting the planet?”
Sanders replied, “All I can say is if we believe, as I do and you do, that climate change is real then we are going to have to tackle it in every single area including agriculture, ok? And in fact, one of the things we want to do with our farmers out there is help them become more aggressive and able to help us combat climate change rather than contribute to it.”
“So we will certainly – you’re right,” he added. “We’ve got to look at agriculture, we’ve got to look at every cause of the crisis that we face.”
Comrade Bernie isn’t the only Democrat running for president to hint that if elected that he would use the power of the government to go after meat-eaters, Beto O’Rourke and Cory Booker – who is an actual vegan – have openly linked meat to climate change.
There is already a propaganda campaign in the works against meat, CNN among others has promoted a report by the globalist World Resources Institute pushing Americans to “cut back” on eating hamburgers which would become a reality if Sanders and his ilk tax beef out of the affordability range.
Red-blooded Americans who say «Beef, it’s what’s for dinner!» better hold on to their hamburgers. Globalists want to take away our burgers to «save the planet.» They can go eat their 568-page report with a side order of fries.https://t.co/pGB00CMwJR

The punitive tax would put the screws on citizens who would be coerced into becoming vegans and aligns with the new craze of fake meat as in meatless burgers that many of the nation’s fast food chains are adopting to appeal to millennials.
KFC is rolling out meatless chicken as a new front on the left’s war on Chick-fil-A is about to be opened with economic terrorism in the form of pressure campaigns and boycotts. You know it’s coming.
KFC is testing out meatless nuggets and wings in the Atlanta area. It follows Burger King’s testing of its plant-based «Impossible Whopper.»https://t.co/LKX1h3Hv1j

Like communism, climate change has become the central organizing principle for an ever more dangerous and ideological left who want to enforce their warped ideas on people who don’t think like them.
They want to strip Americans of their freedom to make their own decisions and put power into the hands of an authoritarian government that the socialists will control.
• They want to disarm you!
• They want to tell you what to eat!
• They want to take away your right to free speech!
• They want to control what you think!
• In short, they want a dictatorship with them in charge.
• And they will stop at nothing to get it.
And they’re coming for your hamburgers now.
