New York City Wants to Ban Hot Dogs to Stop Global Warming


The City of New York is banning hot dogs from government facilities in order to save the earth from global warming. No, they are serious.

Bill de Blasio’s jack-booted city authorities are moving to ban all processed meats from schools, and government-run cafeterias to save the earf.

The new measure comes as part of the city’s version of a “green new deal,” according to Daily Wire:

“The plan,” Z100 says, “will cut purchases of red meat by 50 percent in its city-controlled facilities such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. The new commitment builds off of the Meatless Mondays campaign that was adopted by all NYC schools in 2017.”

Mayor de Blasio hailed his new plan.

“It is a difficult plan. It is a necessary plan. … Estimates that tell us that we have only 12 years to get it right. Let’s be clear, we have until 2030 to change things fundamentally, or our lives won’t be the same,” de Blasio said of his global warming plan.

The ridiculous policy would not stop restaurants or street venders from selling hot dogs, granted, but this is obviously the “camel’s nose under the tent,” if you will.

How long will it be before the city fathers, in their wisdom, decide to ban hot dogs in people’s homes, too?

Remember when people said banning smoking in government buildings would never leek over into everyone’s private lives? Then lawmakers began pushing bills to stop people from being allowed to smoke in their own homes.

The point is, liberals are never satisfied. When they get on small win, they then work to expand that win to become universal and never limited in scope.
