What’s with all those people who eat insects? First you remember this crackpot.
CNN host: Are you ready? Cheers. Actually, I’m less afraid of this. Hmmmm. Do I have a wing hanging out of my mouth?
Anyway, I can think of someone else at CNN who should stick to food. Just bugs. [Picture of Brian Stelter] Low hanging fruit. But now, in recent years, everyone is participating, even celebrities.
GREG GUTFELD: DEMOCRATS ARE SUDDENLY AGAINST CRITICISM OF LAW

They couldn’t even pretend to enjoy it. And many of them were actors. Of course, some now argue that you should eat insects to reduce CO2 emissions.
ROBERT DOWNEY JR.: This is a powder derived from the mealworm and it is an insect protein that has just been approved by the EU for human consumption. Making it significantly reduces the amount of emissions required. If we make this switch, it will be a huge, huge step.
I’m pretty sure that guy was sitting next to me on a Greyhound bus in 1989. He was talking about how his voices told him to go eat, I don’t know, insects. So now it is a moral obligation to eat insects. But just like eating a centipede, they’re just playing the long game, right? I didn’t write that. If you laughed, I’d own it. But we just fired that person
First, they’re going to tell you that eating insects isn’t weird at all. Then you’re going to tell you that it’s normal to eat insects. And finally, you’re racist if you don’t eat insects.
So Yahoo! Remember that? Yahoo! Actually wrote a FactCheck piece claiming that eating insects is not harmful. I am going to quote this post on social media stating that chitin in the exoskeleton of insects cannot be processed by the human body. This is misleading. While some parts of insects may not be fully digested by humans, it does not mean that eating them is harmful. I don’t know. I think those experts are full of chit.
So maybe not every bug makes you sick, but if I have worms in my stomach, take me to the hospital. And don’t suggest that they need company.
Others will say that insects in other countries are part of a balanced diet, but also an integral part of the culture, which explains why people leave there to come here. If insects are an integral part of your culture, you need to find a new culture.
When I was working in the immigration service and a refugee came to my desk and I asked, why are you here? And they said: My family eats insects. I would wave them all.
Insects are carriers of diseases and parasites. The texture is disgusting. No one laughs when they eat insects. And if Robert Downey Jr says it will reduce emissions, yes, but by what? One study found that if every American became a vegetarian, emissions would drop by just 5%. That’s not worth it.
The fact is that most people eat meat because it is healthy. And as Michael Shellenberger, author of the book “Apocalypse Never” points out, the amount of agricultural pollution is trivial compared to jet sets around the world promoting insect cuisine.
And what if it is popular in other countries? You know what else is popular in other countries? beheadings. Which is also good for the climate, because it reduces exhalation, which in turn lowers CO2 levels. Should we also adopt that practice? Not having a head makes it harder to drive, which is also good for the environment.
That’s the point, though. it’s not about your health or your taste buds. It’s about the climate. The BBC asks, can grasshoppers really replace beef? Well, here’s the long answer, no.
The writer said he was intrigued to see how he could reduce his carbon footprint by eating insects as his main source of protein. Well, you do, champ. And also be sure and write another piece when you stop making insects your main source of protein. That’s two days later if you’re writing it from a hospital bed.
So why all this media in lockstep? Again, it’s powered by people exempting themselves from their own advice. Do you think these elites will eat insects themselves? Do you think Greta Thunberg’s mom packed her centipede sandwich in her hello kitty lunch box this morning? Think you’re going to see carpenter ant cream as a dinner special at the UN cafeteria? No, when they asked who ordered insects at the World Economic Forum, all you heard was crickets.
You see the faces of people who eat insects. It’s disgust. And disgust is an instinct. The people who did not find eating insects repugnant died. That is why we prefer our food to be insect free. Because we are the ones that remain. Sure you could say, but it’s low in fat. But so is dog ****. And I don’t spread that over a bagel. I told Kilmeade it was Nutella.
But what really sucks, and the whole point is this — is that they’re ignoring the main reason humans eat insects. That’s because they are poor and have no access to better food. So instead these fools try to make poverty seem fun. I mean, do you think an African kid would eat a plate of mealworms if they were given a bowl of pesto instead of pests?

Like President Biden, bugs are no one’s first choice. They leave that part out of every story. The lack of wealth that forces them to eat insects, like the president’s BMs, is not voluntary. I left that in and I’m still wondering why.
Then they call something people eat out of desperation a delicacy. By this logic, the Donner Party was a 12-course lesson in exotic dishes. Don’t knock on it.
But it’s all about production permission. Getting us to adopt a practice proponents don’t get involved in, like giving up their personal jet or putting giant windmills in their backyards. The World Economic Forum may push these things, but they don’t eat spiders, which, by the way, are now our competition to the insects. They’re better at it. Look, we’ve all eaten insects, but mostly by accident.

hmm. He didn’t seem to enjoy that. He must be a bigot — doesn’t appreciate other cultures.
But do you really think Americans will eat beetles if we get lobster tail at Sunoco station? The fact is that restaurants with bugs on the menu are only because someone used the menu to swat a fly. Sorry, my idea of a buffet is to stand under an insect lamp and catch what falls on my plate. But this isn’t about you. And it’s not about the rich. Really, they don’t give up their foie gras for fried worm.
Nor is it about targeting the middle class. The closest thing to eating an insect is the bee at Applebee’s. The only people left are really the poor. So that’s where we’re going? Feeding insects en masse to the poor instead of lifting them out of poverty. I envy the days when elites said let them eat cake. Now they can eat crickets.
