Democrat Senator Cory Booker ― who recently adopted a vegan diet ― has a beef with meat, saying a vegan diet could save the planet.

Soy Boy Booker, who’s running for president, says Americans should consider switching to a vegan diet, but insisted it’s not his place to preach to people about what they should eat.

“None of us want our government or elected officials preaching to us and telling us what we can or can’t eat,” Booker told Veg News. “So, I don’t want to preach to anybody about their diets. But I am who I am. I want to live my life authentically and I don’t want to be one of those people that’s quiet when I’m excited to have food.”

Booker, who says his last non-vegan meal was in November 2014, added:

“The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact.

It’s just not possible, as China, as Africa move toward consuming meat the same way America does because we just don’t have enough land.”

Karl Rove: Booker’s Veganism Has Political Agenda

Karl Rove ― the former deputy White House chief of staff under George W. Bush ― says Booker’s veganism is part of a political agenda, no matter how much he claims otherwise.

“I don’t like eggplant, but I don’t attack people who grow eggplants by describing the standard American diet or claiming it’s ‘industrial produced’ animal agriculture, or it’s very powerful, wealthy, large corporate interests that are behind the diet, as Senator Booker said.

Look, this is a political agenda. Everybody is entitled to pick their own food, but when you pick your own food, you don’t need to go out and denigrate people whose eating habits are different than yours by claiming there’s some shadowy conspiracy behind it.

‘They are literally destroying the planet,’ is what Booker said.

Not only that, Mr. Scientific Senator Spartacus said we are clearing land for agricultural purposes. He hasn’t been looking at the science. The University of Maryland did a study that showed that surprisingly, the deforestation in the tropical regions are being offset by reforesting in Asia, Europe, and North America.

So we now have more trees today than we had 35 years ago, and it keeps getting better every year. So he’s entitled to own food choices. Just don’t lecture me about me eating a steak or eating a potato and having cheese. It is really weird, I thought, very weird.

We don’t need a nanny state, condemning people for what they eat.

Also, I thought it very dangerous to suggest that agriculture in America is a bad thing. We’re feeding the world. There are people around the world living healthier and longer because of American agriculture…The idea of agriculture in America as bad for both the environment and for the planet is ridiculous.”
