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.

    Reminds me of the low fat stuff that was being pushed. While it was high in sugar, it didn’t matter because it was “low fat”. The amount of people who fell for that was astounding, and would have been a cause of the increase in diabetes.

    Then there was the attack on salt and the push to drink more water. So some people would end up with issue because they didn’t have enough salt in their body, and kept flushing it out by drinking heaps of water. While you don’t need to add salt, actively avoiding it is not necessary if you are remotely active.

    Stick with the basics – meat as it comes from the animal, veggies as the come from the ground, milk as it comes from the cow, eggs as they come from the chicken, etc, etc.

      I agree, “meat as it comes from the animal, veggies as the come from the ground, milk as it comes from the cow, eggs as they come from the chicken, etc, etc.”……but how can food processors make a buck if there is no processing to be done? As for salt, this has been an ongoing scare campaign for the past 50 years, with no definite evidence to back it up.For me, I just listen to my body.On a hot day, particularly if I am quite active I crave salt.As long as I drink plenty of water to flush any excess out,all is good. I am also not frightened by the sun either.I have never used sunscreen and have excellent Vit D levels. I look at all public health announcements as simply propaganda.

    Excellent topic to raise Adam.
    The rural community are well aware of the constant attack on farming with the animal industries being targeted in particular. With our population overwhelmingly city based and far removed from natural reality the ground is fertile, pun intended, for those who seek control, to exploit with emotional arguments.

    The veganism thing’s largely the animal rights movement and the other feint is the eco warriors. Control is the objective and our city centric populations are highly susceptible to emotive arguments. Of course marketeers take advantage of this, which you can’t blame them for.

    And also of course, our emotion driven governments are ever eager to regulate.
    Your right Adam. Animal protein and fats dominated diet is natural. High carb intake and concentrated vegetable oils are not.

    Marketplace regulation mostly only causes problems so in my view countering the eco and animal rights warriors propaganda is the thing to do.

  • Trevor Wilson

    Yes, it’s a big one. I was watching (with scorn) the latest diet we are meant to follow according to the mainsteam media. Barely any protein, barely any meat, so how are we going to get our b12 and micronutrients? A diet to keep you alive, but weak, mostly vegetarian, will impact ability to reproduce too.

  • Andrew Thompson

    Proteins are chemicals

    not making an argument, just your terminology is flawed

    • Ron Mortimer

      Everything physical is a chemical.

      • John Sheppard

        Especially watch out for that evil chemical dihydrogen monoxide. Gotta watch out for that chemical. If you consume too much it can kill you!! It is everywhere, from our food, to our waterways, and even in our drinks!

        Boycott it now!

    Veganism: the osseous system that is the support of the body attached to the muscular locomotor apparatus, needs protein to be able to nourish itself and function, humans are omnivorous unlike the vegetarian animals, the ruminant cows have two stomachs to store, and to chew again the food to extract all the fiber and nutrients, the human can not and by not strengthening the bone system with proteins and nutrients from the meat, the bones are damaged and therefore the bone marrow, this produces red and white blood cells, a weak bone marrow It can damage the immune system or produce leukemia.

      I had to look up the word “osseous”, I thought it was a kind of African mammal.

    I’m old enough to have seen the fads cycle through and back.
    Red meat good/red meat bad.
    Eggs good/eggs bad/eggs good again.
    Coffee bad/coffee good/coffee bad/coffee good.
    Red wine bad/red wine good, etc…..
    And so it goes on, with some dipshit “scientific” study presenting some new crappy theory every year.
    Then, all this hipster stuff: kale, soy, artisan tomatoes, swiss chard, micro-greens. WTF ?
    Don’t get me started on Superfoods or Seaweed shakes.
    What absolute effing nonsense.
    It doesn’t matter what you eat, some trendy Food Commie will brand it as unhealthy or cancer causing.
    Then there’s the cholesterol boogey man.
    Yes, think of the $ billions that Big Pharma makes from cholesterol reducing statin medications.
    Your GP wont get his freebie Big Pharma payola trip to the Maldives this year if you don’t sign up for statins.
    Yes ! You’ll die of a massive heart attack if you don’t listen to the pharmaceutical hucksters. Yeah/nah.
    Bah, it’s all humbug !

      I too have watched throughout my life the cyclical demonizing then sanctifying(then repeat) of all sorts of foods. What if the when is just as, if not more important than the what. I more or less accidentally started fasting for 16-18 hours everyday, and it has been excellent for me.I eat a reasonable sized lunch at noon,and have dinner at 6ish. Not only did I lose 20 kilos without trying but got a whole lot more energy as well. I don’t worry about how much I eat or what, just try to eat between 12and 6 pm.

      • Bucky Redux

        Me too, I fast for about 14 hours and also don’t worry too much about diet. Fasting is no doubt what we did by necessity when we were hunter gatherers back in the mists of time.

  • Harry Stottle

    Never mind about protein. Have you guys noticed how Telstra are banning websites they don’t like? As of today and many others have been blocked by someone at Telstra. This is total fucking bullshit.

    • Bucky Redux

      Just use a VPN to bypass the censorship/blocks.
      * it sends a big “FU” to the nanny wowser suckholes in government, who push this internet censorship.
      And we call Australia a Democracy…..

      • Harry Stottle

        Yep, fortunately I have a VPN. But I’m still waiting for them to ban Facebook for live-streaming the massacre…

    • Ron Mortimer

      They have blocked Zerohedge and the Stormer.I have been meaning to get a VPN, and have been suggested Nord. Any other suggestions?

      • Harry Stottle

        I use HotspotVPN. It’s not free, but you can use it on multiple devices. Works perfectly.

    • Stiffbastard

      This is bigger than I first thought.

      They’ve taken our zerohedge. I’d expect a Hilton article soon enough.

    Soy is essential for Marxists. As is veganism. It feminizes men. Feminized men, like Macron, Trudeau, Shorton brains and Turncoat are absolutely necessary for the end of Western civilization.
