The war on protein.

When viewed in context, the last 40 odd years of government intervention in the health and in particular the dietary habits of the general population carries an ominous whiff of treachery. If you take the time to go back and examine this history, just about everything governments pushed was not only wrong but downright dangerous. The explosion in diseases such as diabetes, which was virtually unknown a mere 30 years ago, is a direct result of such meddling in the iceboxes of the nation.

Probably the most destructive recommendation was the push for people to consume carbohydrates instead of protein. Linked to this was the demonization of natural fat. So butter and lard were bad for you, but a chemical product such as margarine was somehow good. Under this regime heart disease didn’t just increase; it literally took off and soared to the heavens. The continual consumption of chemical foods, a daily assault on our bodies’ ability to break down what is ingested, has also seen a dramatic rise on all types of cancers, but particularly those linked to the bowel and digestive tracts.

People have become more unhealthy, with obesity now at epidemic levels. Ironically, governments have also pushed for people to be more physically active. So now you have the absurd situation where in places like Sweden it is mandatory for workers to participate in ridiculous daily exercise programs while at work, programs themselves which are also destructive for the body as anyone with even half a brain understands when confronted with a monstrosity such as Crossfit.

Thankfully, those who are willing to make the effort to educate themselves have still been able to live a healthy life. To my understanding, a diet which is high in protein, fat, and dairy when combined with a strict strength regime like powerlifting is the key to good health into old age.

But for how much longer? Because there is emerging a steady war on protein, a war that has its beginnings in occult activism such as veganism as well as in academia. It’s only a matter of time before this battle jumps to the public service where it will become official public policy. Over the last 6 months I have observed a steady and alarming increase in the war on protein. From attacks on butcher shops in France to academics extolling the virtues of veganism, the mainstream media has been ratcheting up the volume a little bit more every day.

Recently this battle jumped over and hitched a ride on the bloated carcass of climate change. Spurious claims of the danger of cow farts of all things on the environment are spearheading a now concerted push to eventually make the consumption of meat illegal. If they succeed then you can add milk to the list as well, since that important product also happens to come from our beloved cows.

This is an extremely worrying development for multiple reasons. First of all the current global population is only able to be sustained because of animal protein. It is extremely resource efficient to consume animal products since the animals perform the critical task of converting plant food into consumptive energy for us. This is a task that must be left to herbivores since they are far more efficient at doing it. There is not enough available viable land on the planet to support the human population if we all suddenly had to eat kale. And it’s not even close. The famines that would arise from such a development would be terrible indeed.

That is the most obvious outcome of a ban on animal protein and fats. But there is another more insidious outcome. The modern human population is as tall as it is and as strong as it is because of these products. When Australia was settled the most common food product for the average working class man was mutton. At the same time as the Irish were starving on a few measly potatoes, the first Australians were enjoying a diet high in protein. Over a few generations Australians became very healthy; strong, tough, and imposing. In the Great War, Australian troops scared the crap out of the Europeans. In the Second World War the German general Erwin Rommel was on record as stating that the Australian fighting man was the best and most imposing in the world.

This was down to protein. Before the 20th century, protein was a luxury. The working class had little opportunity to consume it. Thus they were physically different from the upper classes. While the upper classes were tall and strong, the urban lower classes tended to be smaller and weaker. Milk in particular had a huge impact on the growth spurt of the average teenage boy. The Dutch are an excellent example of this as they are among the highest consumers of milk per capita in the world.

A ban on meat and dairy products would have a disastrous effect on the ability of the great unwashed to be able to remain strong and healthy. Which is why the steady increase in volume in this direction seems very ominous to me. What better way for the coastal elite to continue the subjugation of the great unwashed masses than by eliminating the only way for them to remain fit and healthy? The government programs of the past 40 years which have been specifically designed to undermine the health of the general population and thereby render them dependent on government handouts and intervention, (Obamacare anyone?), did not go far enough for the elites. It is not enough for them to count on people falling for the many traps that have been laid out. They have to be able to eliminate resistance once and for all.

That is what the emerging war on protein is all about. Expect a schoolkids’ march against protein in the not too distant future. The very people who will need it the most will be successfully brainwashed into attacking it. Prepare to fight for your right to barbeque.

    Agree 100%. Also, the dissident right in general should focus its efforts on health and self-improvement, as it is a powerful rhetorical weapon to look stronger, healthier, and more handsome than your opponents on the soycialist left.

  2. The Guardian has been pushing veganism lately, which is itself ominous. It seems to be their new polyamory.

    Adam Love your stuff! And you’re partially correct.

    I’m a perfectly healthy and fit age 76, and have been vegan since 1984. I’ve abstained from animal products — and I’ve also abstained from the many vegan products consumed by most vegans, and recommended (or tolerated) by the “authorities”:

    Soy White bread Sugar Pasta White rice ALL drugs (legal and illegal) Alcohol All manufactured, canned, frozen and processed foods. Mock meats All fried, BBQ and microwaved foods

    Veganism is wonderful — as long as we eat natural foods in their natural state.

    You got a couple things off here. It’s true, back in the day, animal protein was a luxury. Hence, my Irish ancestors had to make do with taters. They didn’t understand diet like we do now. The problem is no veggie is a complete protein. So, to be healthy you have to mix and match – rice and beans, Corn and beans, add in high iron content dark green veggies.

    They didn’t know this. They were simply trying to fill their bellies as best they could.You can do all veggies, but it’s a shit-ton of work. There are two constants among the vegetablists I know. First, they cook a lot more per meal. One dude I know sent be what his wife setup for dinner. It was like six dishes. An astonishing amount of prep work, and even to source the proper ingredients, to get a halfway balanced diet.

    The second is, they – to a man- get sick more often than I do (which is nearly never). I see them singing the praises of vegetablism as they lose weight and get fit. Then, there’s the inevitable bout of some awful illness that befalls. I might add, in the US, where we have real issues with diabetes, the last thing you want to be eating is a ton of bread, pastas, rice, potatoes, corn, or beans. You need to avoid high glycemic foods, all of which are plant based.

    Generally, I eat a couple eggs with some sort of meat in the morning. Sometimes, I may have toast or an english muffin with it. That lasts me until nearly 2pm, when I have a salad of some sort or soup. Even then, I could pass, and make it to dinner just fine.

    When I deviate, and have Oatmeal or cereal for breakfast, I’m crazed with hunger about 11AM.

    Fact of the matter is, a proper amount of animal protein, and you’ll need far less food than otherwise.

    Another thing vegetablists do is compare, wrongly. “Well, gorillas are strong as hell and they eat a plant based diet!” True, but they spend all day looking for food and eating. “Asians eat mostly rice and vegetables and they live longer than anyone!” True. That’s their physiology.

    We’re all different. Best explanation I heard explained what blood types needed which diet. My wife and I are completely different. She can handle more plant base, I need more protein. Our kids are a mix.

      “Hence, my Irish ancestors had to make do with taters. They didn’t understand diet like we do now.”

      Potatoes have about 11% protein, and onions have about 12% protein.

      Put some chopped green onions in with some cabbage (1.3%), kale (4.3%), bacon (varies), heavy cream, salt (especially American “fry salt” with seasoning), and butter to cook, then mash up some boiled potatoes and combine everything, adding more liquid as needed.

      The result is called Colcannon, and it’s how your Irish ancestors made surviving tasty.

      There’s just enough protein in the potatoes and the onions alone for the body to survive, and once you’ve added the bacon, it’s more than enough. The heavy cream and butter do nicely for dietary fats if your bacon isn’t the American variety of “streaky bacon”.

      So they weren’t exactly starving on potatoes …

    • Techiedude, I’m not exactly sure where it is that you’re disagreeing with me.

      • TechieDude

        You know, Now that I read it I’m not sure myself what I was on about. I was half in the bag. So much for giving up alcohol for lent. It was vegan alcohol too.

        To the extent that the gubmint has a war in protein, It’s to stuff the farming conglomerates pockets with money. Look at what they do with Corn. It’s everywhere and in everything. It’s money. Nothing more. In the US they really need to shutter the Dept of Agriculture, and kill all subsidies.

        As far as a war goes, they are simply weaponizing the vegetablists propensity for virtue signalling. Sweet jesus, there’s nothing worst than a former fatty vegan. I know two that are worse than any former smoker I’ve ever met.

        I think my point was; protein good, starch carbs bad, and we all have different needs probably based on blood type and genetics. The gubmint likes general issue one size fits all. It’s more of a war on individuals.

    Even Flim Flam Tim Flannery accepts that cattle, sheep, goats, farming livestock reduce methane out put. The fact is if the grass was left to grow the white ants that feed on grass would increase the methane out put, I can’t remember the ratio but it was something like 5 to 10 fold.

    I know this as I had an idea of applying for some of that climate change monies a decade ago for a study on such white ants, I even put it out there on the Internets, low and behold, 18 months later someone else did the study. The initial hypothesis was that the white ants would sequester more CO2, turns out white ant nests the biosphere of bacteria and fungi produce far more methane then all the live stock on earth…

    These CO2 cultists are just full of shit basically. It’s more the fact that tptb and their useful idiots want to reduce the level of testosterone within the populace, in order to make us less imposing,
    retard intelligence and produce a compliant docile eoli.

    “The explosion in diseases such as diabetes …”

    … is probably the result of unchecked and unmonitored growth of something called “reactive oxygen species” (or ROS) in the body.

    Call it “mitochondrial damage”, call it “oxidative damage”, what happens is that this stuff kills pancreatic cells stone cold dead.

    If you’re lucky, there may be enough live pancreatic tissue left to regrow the islet cells after a year or two, and if not, welcome to the wonderful world of long-term diabetic treatment.

    So where does this stuff come from?

    Well, there are two major dietary sources.

    Alloxan is the byproduct of oxidising wheat bran protein, and it just so happens to make flour “bleached” in appearance. It can develop naturally when wheat flour is left to “whiten naturally” over long periods, and it can also develop after being hit with chlorine gas during not-so-natural whitening.

    Dehydroascorbic acid is the other major dietary source, and it’s the result of vitamin C (aka ascorbic acid) oxidation. This can develop naturally, and it’s why vitamin C supplements as they age change from a bright white colour to various shades of yellow and finally deep orange when they’re mostly converted. Unfortunately ascorbic acid is used as a cheap food preservative, even though it may oxidise into something that can attack the pancreas.

    A study done in Africa showed that even fruit sources of vitamin C form dehydroascorbic acid: the study showed that the process begins shortly after the fruit is picked, and the only thing that slows it down is refrigeration at a temperature of 4 C or lower.

    Naturally (or not naturally), there are also other sources.

    Also, cholesterol won’t fucking kill you without some help.

  7. Putting children on a vegan diet is putting them at risk of mental retardation. As a previous poster mentioned there is simply far too much prep work to ensure a proper balance of nutrients. Besides if kids don’t like it they won’t eat it and try as you might it’s a losing battle trying to get children to eat properly.

      It starts before they are even born. A woman’s diet when she’s pregnant determines not only the baby’s development, but the pace of growth after it’s born. I once had a vegan coworker that was pregnant at the same time as my wife. We got into a huge discussion about how important protein was to healthy babies.

      So she shows me her bag of peanuts she was snacking on. That was her extra protein – an incomplete one. No idea how the kid turned out. Mine were all super healthy, the smallest being nearly 8lbs, the largest almost 11. All grew up fit, healthy, and smart.

  8. John

    I know that keto/high protein is all the rage these days (and it’s better than junk food and high carbs), every study I’ve seen still points to the Mediterranean diet as the most healthy.

    If I can’t use my white privilege to eat like a warlord, what’s the fucking point???? I’m not going to live like a peasant if I don’t have to. Other people can, and I do appreciate them for it.

    Thanks vegans.

    Adam, you’re spot on here.

    Veganism is part of what I call “Affluenza”, whereas certain people with the luxury of having the greatest amount of food choices in the entire history of Mankind voluntarily choose to forgo eating a certain food group all under the guise of “cruelty-free.
    This surplus of food choices is unique within human history, where the norm has been people only having to eat what is in their immediate surrounds and what they grew themselves, and subsequently one failed crop could lead to starvation.
    You can guarantee that if a vegan had the choice between eating an animal product or starvation, then that animal product would be consumed quicker than you would blink. Basic survival always trumps ideology when the situation is life or death

  11. Last evening and the evening before, I dined at my favourite steakhouse – an institution in this city. I had two large Sapphire martinis, a large ribeye steak (rare), a baked potato with butter, cheese, sour cream and bacon, and a chiffonade salad. I then had a superb spumoni. I finished my dinner with a Grand Marnier. I have always eaten like this (I also enjoy traditional French cuisine, and true northern Italian food), and always shall. I defy any government bureaucrat to stop me.
