RUSH: I want to shout out big time today to McDonald’s. McDonald’s, I love you. I remember back in the days of the global warming craze when the wackos were suggesting don’t eat McDonald’s, don’t eat beef because it leads to cow methane causing global warming. Remember I sent one of the Snerdleys over to McDonald’s in Times Square and picked up 240 Quarter Pounders with cheese and Big Macs and brought ‘em back to the studio and had the whole transaction take place on the phone, on the air, just to stand up and support McDonald’s. And listen to this. You know, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, this wacko bunch of leftist kooks, statists, nannies, these are the people that banned coconut oil from your popcorn in movie theaters, have gotten rid of MSG, the flavoring in Chinese food, they wanted to ban Chinese food. These people want to get in your life and tell you what to eat. If you look at these people you wonder if they’re barely alive, they’re skeletal, they’re miserable, they are unhappy, and they want to spread that misery to everybody else by having you eat basically nothing but tofu and cardboard, run around eating miniature rocks and berries as you traverse the deserts of the world.
Rush, I don’t think CSPI got rid of MSG. In fact, not even public pressure from TRUE, HONEST medical researchers has gotten rid of MSG. MSG is still in all the processed foods and the fast food…including Subway. You actually think CSPI got rid of MSG? If so, then why has CSPI shown itself to be an apologist organization for MSG? Rush is still trying to keep people in the phony left-right paradigm. He is counting on conservative dupes to fall for his “beware of the evil leftists” propaganda. Obesity is not about “left vs right”. The obesity epidemic transcends all phony sides of the fake left-right paradigm. “Liberal” foundation-funded organizations are just as much to blame for the obesity epidemic as industry-funded “conservative” organizations. CSPI and the Center for Consumer Freedom are two wings of the same Rockefeller bird.
