We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Why do we say that? Stories like this.
As American Action News’ Kevin Boyd reported several weeks back, a goofball liberal author decided several weeks ago that milk is “the new, creamy symbol of racial purity.”
Apparently he started a trend. As the Washington Times reports, this argument has popped up elsewhere:
“You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts,” Ms. Diaz pens.
She continues: “It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism. That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against. This phenomenon affects our voter ID laws, state testing and, yes, even our federal dietary guidelines. But how can our health guidelines, a system meant to be built upon scientific fact alone, have racist messages? Where there is a deep-rooted tradition to suppress an entire race’s existence, there’s a way.”
And yes, it all comes down to milk.
“The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health,” Ms. Diaz wrote. “Our current federal dietary guidelines urge people to drink three cups of milk a day, according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The main health benefit of milk is to guard against osteoporosis, a disease that weakens your bones — hence the ‘stronger bones’ rhetoric. While this is a very practical health benefit, osteoporosis affects Africans at a significantly lower rate than it does most Americans.”
This isn’t just wacky college students and campus activists. Back in August, liberal flagship Mother Jones asked if the US Dietary Guidelines were racist, citing a few studies that suggest that African Americans don’t require as much milk as other groups.
So in the mind of liberals, the FDA’s failure to adapt a study they like is evidence of racism, or evidence that they don’t care about black people. Or, it’s part of some nefarious plot cooked up by a bunch of white men in a smoky room deep inside the FDA apparatus trying to find ways to poision minorities for the benefit of the white race.
Liberals are starting to sound more and more like this guy:
