Scratch a liberal, find a hypocrite. Democrat White House candidates who want to curb your consumption of meat because it allegedly contributes to climate change are actually seeking support at — wait for it — the Iowa Steak Fry.
CBS News reported:
Around 12,000 attendees are expected to show up for burgers and face time with 17 Democratic presidential candidates at the Polk County Democratic Party’s annual steak fry in Iowa on Saturday. Although 18 candidates were initially expected to attend, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasioon Friday morning.
Ten candidates have planned rallies ahead of their appearances at the steak fry. Senator Kamala Harris will be joined by striking McDonald’s workers at her pre-steak fry rally.
Organizers will grill. They will also have 1,000 vegan burgers — all of it made on 10 grills by 40 grillers. Senator Cory Booker is the only vegan in the presidential race.

So, what’s the big deal, you ask? Well, these are the same Democrats who say eating meat causes climate change. And they’re the same Democrats who want to keep us from eating burgers and who have pledged to make the meat too expensive for us to buy.
One person put it this way:
Dems: Americans need to stop eating meat to save the planet
Also Dems: WELCOME TO THE IOWA STEAK FRY

The Iowa GOP noted:

Every liberal running for president is telling us that if you eat meat- you are contributing to climate change. So tonight they’ll all be in DM at- wait for it- a steak fry!! 12,000 tickets sold- that’s a lot of steak. I wonder

Yes, it is a lot of steaks and a lot of global warming also if you believe cow farts are destroying the world. While I don’t believe the climate change hypothesis or that cow farts are a problem, when I was growing up and sharing a room with my older brother, I did believe that his farts were destroying the world (or at least my sense of smell).
But Democrats keep telling us that beef consumption and cows are causing a climate crisis!
Why are Democrats participating in an event that is causing global warming?
Or, could it be that Democrat politicians don’t really believe their own idiotic rhetoric about climate change?

The character Big Daddy may have been talking about the Democratic Party candidates, when he said in the Tennessee William’s play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof “There ain’t nothin’ more powerful than the odor of mendacity!”
