Former California Secretary of Agriculture Laments Moonbat Hostility to Growing Food

Sometimes it is hard to differentiate a misguided ideology from a malevolent one. Other times it is easy. For example, if the adherents of an ideology are opposed to growing food, that ideology is clearly malevolent. Former California Secretary of Agriculture A. G. Kawamura laments the hostility of moonbats toward meeting our need to eat:

“How different groups attack agriculture. How so many folks [look] at agriculture as if we’re some entity that is conspiring to make things worse, whether it’s with the environment, whether it’s with food safety, whether it’s with the amount of water we use,” Kawamura says.

Kawamura, who was California’s ag secretary from 2003 to 2010, is a third generation fruit and vegetable grower. He says the attacks are especially harsh in his home state.

“In California currently, there seems to be almost a ‘grow food, go to jail’ sentiment,” he says. “I say that with all seriousness. It’s amazing how the farming community is being attacked.”

Kawamura attributes the hostility of moonbats toward agriculture to “the luxury of abundance”:

“It allows everybody to have their opinion on what kind of food you should have and what kind of food you should not eat. Or what kind of system should be producing it,” he says. “Because of the great job we’ve done, it’s created this kind of sense of privilege on the part of the consumers who think food is a right.

“I argue food is not a right–it’s a privilege.”

That privilege will be revoked if authoritarian moonbats disable enough agricultural land in the name of minnows or spiders or whatever other useless creatures they decide are endangered, like they have been doing to the San Joaquin Valley.

In California, it only flows where moonbats allow it.

    Any truth to the rumor that the moonbats want to use Brawndo instead?

  • Occam’s Stubble

    I argue food is not a right–it’s a privilege.

    That kind of talk will cost him his moonbat card.

  • Steve2

    He’s right. Let these spoiled moonbats go a few weeks without food, maybe then they’ll appreciate the work that farmers do.

    It’s got what crave. It has electrolites.

    You mean you want to put toliet water on the plants?!? Gross!

    What are electrolytes?

    I argue food is not a right–it’s a privilege

    Yet to moonbats, universal government-paid healthcare is a right, universal government-paid housing is a right, universal government-paid abortion is a right, universal government-paid college education is a right, universal government-paid contraception is a right, universal government-paid gender reassignment surgery is a right, and so on, and so forth, and so on…

    It would turn they real sour on the vegan nonsense too…bonus!

  • Agrippa

    Just as there are no atheists in foxholes, once the food runs out plenty of Libtards will be screaming for “total agriculture, no holds barred, baby!”. May not make ’em conservatives, but it will wake them the f up!

    I’m afraid you don’t get it. The New Left believes that humankind is a cosmic malignancy that needs to go extinct. While they may become hungry and try to find something to eat, their change of heart will not extend to feeding the planet as a whole. A small “sustainable” remnant may be acceptable, but the masses have to go.

    Kalifornicators – Proof that you can’t fix stupid.

    Lex Luthor had the right solution.

    First of all, Kawamura is correct, food is not a right. The resources we have were provided by God for us to use. No one ever said securing those resources would be easy.
    Secondly, nothing that is required to be provided by someone else is a right. No one has the right to tell a doctor that they are obligated to heal or care for them. If you believe that, then you believe in slavery.
    Lastly, every single thing we have, without exception, comes from two and only two places. Farming and mining. That’s it, that’s all we have.
    Personally, I thank the Lord for famers and miners that are willing to do the hard, unforgiving and thankless jobs they do. I never farmed but I did work in an underground mine for awhile and it is a harsh and dangerous environment.

    Where did you get that? Did you just make that?

    Yeah. Meme Generator makes it easy.

    I was thinking about adapting this to your last point, but don’t have the time right now – needs “Georgetown” and “Illinois” brushed out so we can all use it.

    Kewl dude, I should have known, but I’m a bit of a technical luddite.
    Plus I don’t really have time to play around on computers.
    But thanks for turning that into a meme. I never would have thought of doing that.
