A Bug’s Life

[May 8, 2023]  A Bug’s Life is a 1998 Disney/Pixar movie about one little ant as he searches for a brave band of warriors to help battle the bullying grasshoppers who threaten his home.  Today, there is a budding campaign in America to eat bugs to replace meat in our diets, more precisely, in your diet.  Radical leftists insist this is better for the environment.  I still love the movie.

A Bug’s Life is a wonderfully entertaining movie with a message of courage, persistence, grit, and standing up for the weak and infirm; thus, it was produced well before Disney went full woke.  This is why I enjoyed this movie with the protagonist, an ant, a flawed hero.  He comes out of nowhere to save his community.

Political leftist radicals across much of the First World are religious fanatics that want us (but not them) to eat insects.  From the Wall Street Journal, “Switzerland Wants Children to Eat Less Chocolate, More Insects.”  Link here.

Switzerland, in 2017 became the first country in Europe to allow insects to be sold as food for humans after a lobbying campaign by edible-insect startups.  That was the easy part.  Now the companies must overcome what entomologists call the “yuck factor,” the gut feeling among many Western diners that insects are signs of rot and pestilence that shouldn’t be placed in one’s mouth.

The Food and Drug Administration classifies unintended insect matter in foodstuffs as “filth.”  Watch for that to change.  The powerful, wealthy, and political-savvy elites will never eat bugs.  Bugs are for us peasants.

    Thanks to Gen. Satterfield, I have a better idea of what is happening in the “insect world.” I prefer my meat be free ranging but insects? Naw.

      Yeah, a good hamburger is what I want …. with cheese and mayo. No lettuce or veggies, please.

    The FDA, just another WOKE institution coopted by Joe Biden’s minnions.

    It is hard to believe this could happen in America.

      Anything the leftists can do to force you to do their bidding, they will push it thru the legal political system. It matters not whether it makes sense or whether it is good for you or not, they will be there pushing. And never forget why they do this, because they “are superior to you underlings.” Just like all tyrants in the world.

        As I say to my Liberal friends who support this garbage, “You first.” The plan will probably be to quietly introduce insects into foods as a protein boosting flour appearing as an additive in the nutrition panel ingredient list in processed foods. Then as insects become higher profile, protests will then be met with “You’ve already been eating them!”

    Hmm. Suppose this has anything to do with Michelle Obama’s new start up?

    Leviticus 11:20-23, King James Version
    20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.
    21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;
    22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
    23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.

      I’m going to eat meat just to piss off the greenies.

    A Bug’s Life is a rousing adventure that blends animated thrills with witty dialogue and memorable characters – and another smashing early success for Pixar. Great for kids.

  8. Audrey

    I too greatly enjoyed the movie and saw it on Netflix a year or so ago.

      One of my favorites of all time and same with my 3 kiddos. Keep up the great works you are doing Gen. Satterfield and each of my kids has a copy of your latest book. I expect them to start reading it in the first grade when they are able and so they can not be indoctrinated by woke teachers.
