David Sirota wrestles with Big Meat, calls out GOP carnivores over subsidized burgers

It’s amazing how much conservatives still have to learn about themselves. Do you have a business? You didn’t build that. Government built the roads that allow you to get your product to market and paid to educate the workers you hired. And if you’re a Republican who enjoys eating meat, don’t call yourself a free-market capitalist. Some vegan liberal made that Dollar Menu burger possible with his tax dollars.

Finally, Salon contributor and vegetarian David Sirota has blown the lid off of carnivore privilege, echoing Al Gore’s wish that gas prices would skyrocket to discourage the use of oil.

Sirota’s tweet does have meat-eating Republicans considering their options.

Hang on a minute … was it a lack of taxpayer subsidies that had Sandra Fluke paying $3,000 for birth control? Is that what the contraception mandate of Obamacare was all about?



Nice. Is this a better way to respond to differences of opinion?

    Oh please, the second someone with a (R) by their name tries to end or even reduce agriculture subsidies David Sirota will scream how they’re trying to starve poor people.

    • camnpat

      Or he will say that they are trying to eliminate food inspectors since they go through the same departments…

      Oh, wait- that sounds awfully familiar…

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      How much of ag subsidies go to pay farmers not to farm? Here they get paid to plant trees for the EPA.

      • Ken Alan Draper

        forget that, how many small towns got police cars bought for them by the Ag department, how many houses did the ag department buy for people who had no connection to agriculture?

    • Ken Alan Draper

      fairly Hilarious to be talking about unhealthy eating when you refuse to eat meat that contains protein & nutrients that are essential for brain health & muscle development.

    David Sirota the original “meathead”

  • capisce

    Sirota hopes inflated wienie costs can bolster his plummeting sense of self-worth.

  • gjsmith_62

    “GOP meat eaters” … Brilliant writing, well except, wouldn’t it be ALL carnivores? Or are liberal carnivores somehow excluded?

    BTW, end all AG subsidies. Funny, last time a program was to be eliminated, Big Bird started crying. Obama played with the FAA during the sequester, imagine what he’d do to ag subsidies?

    Maybe he secretly hopes the next bomber is a cow?

      Then when it’s revealed to be a liberal or another muslim jihadist, he’ll do the typical liberal dance of diversion.

    With all of the worthless liberals that want taxes to pay for their abortions and birth control (obviously birth control for liberals is a waste of money, because if they knew how to use them, they wouldn’t need abortions), I think it’s stupid of them to complain about the GOP at all when it comes to taxes.

  • Clayton Grant

    Salon needs to stop subsidizing this idiot’s brain farts.

    • Worship Dancer

      now come on you CANNOT have a brain fart unless you actually HAVE a brain.

      Sirota’s musings are contributing more to global warming than any cow farts ever did!

  • twinx

    The only meat I see here is between this guy’s ears.

    p.s. Yankee pot roast for din-din tonight!

    • maplebob23

      You’re too generous.

    • Jay Stevens

      Great. Can I come? I’ll bring desert.

      • twinx

        Better hurry! LOL

  • Lynn

    The only one I see trying to brag is Sirota about being a vegetarian.

    • Kevin Krom

      Q: How do you tell who is the vegetarian in the room?
      A: You don’t. THEY will tell YOU.

  • Jeremy

    what a moron

  • Rob Stevely

    Does he realize that farmers who grow vegetables get subsidies too?

    • Rob Stevely

      LOL the douche blocked me for mentioning this.

      • http://twitter.com/stupid_republic Stupid Republic

        He blocked me for mentioning tonight’s menu — some grass-fed prime NY strips I picked up at my local butcher.

      • ozconservative

        Then he’s gonna love me when I tweet him a pic of the steak I’m gonna cook in his honor tonight.

  • medicinewomantwo

    If you don’t agree with this whiny asz baby, he will block you. He’s the one every one whispers about at the family reunion.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      That’s why I always add a ‘.’ at the beginning of any and all of my replies. Can’t be blocked for a mention. An interaction is a different matter.

  • BeeKaaay

    I agree, let’s end subsidies for the cronies of the single political party (the Marxicrat and RINOpublican party might as well merge)

  • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

    He thinks that democrat’s don’t eat meat because he doesn’t eat meat. That’s so special.

  • SmartJock33

    Got banned. That didn’t take long. Lame.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Never reply directly. It’s a lib tactic to get conservatives booted form Twitter. If your account has been suspended, and you still wish to use it, spam email the support team, and you will get re-instated. It’s happened to me twice, and I’ve learned since. Always when replying, hit the home key, pop in a “.” and continue on with your message.

  • stillinthe60s

    I’m sure Sirota is all in for government subsidizing cigarette-sensing underwear to tune of 400 grand tho.

    Aww David, to bad I buy a quarter of cow from a local farm and hunt for the rest of my meat. Buh-bye now.

  • KateNE

    This guy is a parody right?

  • Lotte Lenya

    His response to everything is “I’m right because shut up”.

  • Gallatin

    I’m fine with ending agricultural subsidies and to reach that goal davy boy you have to put something of equal value on the table—-say the Department of Education.

    • Jay Stevens

      Been saying that for years. DoEd has had more than 30 years to accomplish their goals. Considering the state of public education in the U.S., they are falling further and further behind each year.

      • Gallatin

        It always cracks me up when a libturd says to end subsidies to this and that thinking that it will hurt conservatives. I say go for it. End all subsidies, end all Federal agencies and programs. Contrary to what davey boy believes I think prices will come down when the Federal government gets out of the way.
        The Department of Education has done nothing but increase the cost of education at all levels with dismal results.
        The cost of my hamburger will come down if we close the Department of Agriculture.
        Unlike a libturd I don’t fear the reduction in the size of government, I welcome it with open arms.

  • Mark81150

    Huh… all that smug in such a nasty little effete package.. Hell Davy.. have you finished crying about the mockery of yer Kay-Rot-Tay punch throwing avatar yet?

  • marcellucci

    Should Sirota be considered a vegan when he spends most of his days chomping on wienerschnitzel?

  • trixiewoobeans

    His whole career is subsidized!

      I have a T-shirt from a local barbeque place in Texas. Caption on the back is “I didn’t work my way to the top of the food chain just to eat rabbit food.”

      Carnivores are smarter than vegetarians. After all, how many brains does it take to sneak up on a blade of grass.

  • ReeFungorio

    I guess it’s some comfort knowing this dip has got to be friendless. It would be fun to see him and Piers across from one another: “Oh Yeah?” ad infinitum.

  • JR48

    Funny thing about being employable…you can afford a pricier burger.

  • alanstorm

    And ag subsidies only impact carnivores…?

    Liberal “logic” at its finest.

  • Steve_J

    Since he’s a vegetarian, does that mean he’s in favor of illegal alien field workers being paid slave wages so he can eat inexpensive vegetables?

  • DrSamHerman

    Could someone please inform that idiot Sirota that farm subisidies date from the FDR adminisration as a means of controlling excess supply to keep prices up and production viable? Good Lord, the man is so ignorant of history one wonders if he thinks George III is still King.

  • Denise O’Connor

    He must not care about the poor. The poor need these subsidies to be able to afford food. He just doesn’t care.

  • Guest

    Guess what David Sirota?
    My food poops on your food.

  • http://twitter.com/CoFemale Cuz Grandma Says

    I thought farm subsidies benefited all? Don’t farmer’s mainly grow vegetables for vegetarians?

  • Markward

    My High School club, Young Republicans and Beefeaters club had a tradition to deal with vegetable freaks Like sirota. I present the carrot of shame to the libtard!

  • FaithColeridge33

    The never want to go to the other side of the coin. I’ll agree with him if every subsidy we cut, we cut a tax.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    All subsidies are wrong. Ban all subsidies of any sort. Do not pick and choose subsidies you find offensive, the way that Sirota does. Subsidies like . . . all entitlement programs, National Endowment for the Arts, et cetera.

    Somehow I think the tax savings from the spending cuts will more than make up for any increase in the cost of a hamburger.
