I have seen and heard Mika Brzezinski say a lot of stupid things over the years but this has to take the cake.
She’s beyond being the “food police” and is now the “Body Police”. On this morning’s “Morning Joe” she ranted into yet another diatribe that went way beyond her usual “Sugar kills, sugar is bad, you should be killed if you eat sugar” and went right into “Meat will kill you”. The human race has been eating meat since its existence. In fact, it was because of the human bodies ability to process meat protein that the human race developed and flourished into what it is today.
Brzezinski then said that she had no problem if other people ate meat as long as they “paid more”. Paid more for what? Taxes, health insurance premiums? When is this going to stop? When is enough, enough? I hate the term “slippery slope” but if we were ever on one, now is the time.
Mika Brzezinski hates fat people; she thinks that most American’s are obese monsters who should just die. Well let me tell you something. Listening to her, and her fascist views on obesity, give me so much stress that I think SHE should pay more to be on TV because the stress levels I must endure by listening to her are going to kill me.
Second, she thinks there should be a tax on people who are overweight. So what is it, 30 cents a pound? How does this work? And what about when Brzezinski was pregnant having her babies. Maybe she fell outside the “normal limits” of weight gain for her pregnancy. Should she pay more taxes, or more in insurance premiums for that? I say YES. On top of the FAT tax.
Willie Geist said to her “So you don’t think it is OK, or my choice, to have a Big Mac once in a while?” Brzezinski first said “NO” because it’s bad for you”. (According to whom?) And when Willie said “why”, Brzezinski said “because I have to pay for your bad health”.
Really. Really! Really? I believe Willie has his own insurance. Mika is not paying his co-pays or deductibles. And if she’s talking about the fact that she has to pay more in insurance premiums to cover the cost of people in bad health? Then I say, If she was paying for Willie, or me, then I would have WAY better insurance than I have.
Does that also mean that I pay more for health insurance because Mika has children. I must right? If Mika thinks that all health care costs are spread out equally among then I must be paying for her pregnancy, pre-natal vitamins, the birth, the afterbirth, and any “special needs” her children might have, or devlop. Well, I don’t want to pay for that. I don’t have kids and don’t want to pay for people with kids or the kids themselves. So screw her. If she had a premature baby, LET IT DIE, because I don’t want to pay for it. Fuck her. That’s exactly what she is saying about people who DARE to eat meat.
I am confused about whether she is a Republican or Democrat; but she is acting like a typical Republican. She thinks she can legislate what you put in your body and if you don’t think and eat like her, she has no use for you.
Who knows what bottled hair bleach does to your health. I don’t want to pay for that either. She suffers from Self-righteous indignation, from a woman with such low self-esteem that she lashes out at everyone and anyone who isn’t perfect in her eyes. It is sad. It is maddening. And most of all, it is a slippery slope when we project our own fears, opinions, and moral judgment on everyone else around us and never take a look at ourselves. She is doing EXACTLY what she accuses others of doing.
She acts like a woman who was molested by her father, brother, or close family member. She is addicted to being thin and eating right all in an effort to gain acceptance by somebody who harmed her. Politically and journalistically, she is in WAY over her head. And I don’t know how you go from majoring in “Sitting in a chair” and minoring in “Talking at the Camera” (they go together, you know) to thinking that she is the self-appointed, spokes-model for the American diet. What is really going on here? Why would someone who outwardly has a pretty good life get SO worked up about a Big Mac. Me think she doth protest too much. Something doesn’t add up.
