Over 100 Leftist Groups Want To Take Away Your Choices At Restaurants

Though the “pro-choice” moniker has a nice ring to it, the political left has proven time and again it is only interested in offering choice to women contemplating the murder of their own children. In virtually all other aspects of life, these radical activists want to impose their will on the American people.

This disturbing trend is abundantly evident in the arena of nutrition. Led by Michelle Obama’s persistent call for the regulation of school and restaurant meals, partisan groups across the nation have begun a campaign to prevent fast food establishments from offering sodas with their kids’ meals.

Last month, Subway announced its partnership with the first lady to achieve this and other goals, prompting several organizations to join together in an effort to pressure other chains to follow suit.

Margo Wootan of the far-left Center for Science in the Public Interest celebrated the fact that at least 100 separate groups signed on to a letter sent to 23 major restaurant corporations.

According to the letter, “it no longer makes sense to include sugary beverages in restaurant meals for young children.”

Of course, parents across the nation realize that, in moderation, their children can be rewarded with such treats with absolutely no negative effect to their overall health. Furthermore, millions of Americans are incensed by the fact that these politically motivated organizations feel they are better equipped to make parenting decisions than parents themselves.

Nevertheless, the letter continues to circulate, presenting these chains with a one-sided call to change their menus.

McDonald’s, along with Subway and a few other chains, has already announced plans to remove sodas as a Happy Meal beverage. The activists behind this campaign, however, are determined to continue fighting until all such establishments submit to their will.

Obviously, if a restaurant believes a menu change would better suit their clientele, it would make such amendments on its own. The customer’s ability to make their own choices, however, is antithetical to the mission of the radical activist groups behind this campaign.

    • on their website, customer comments, I told them, since they partnered w/Michelle, I would no longer enter their establishment. We were all just fine with Jarred.

    This is the inevitability of the entitlement mind set. You wish to be taken care of, you don't get to choose what they take care of and what you get to.
    Deal with it or change it. Your choice.

    Instead of forcing…or is the term manipulating….restaurants to alter their menus which have existed for decades and decades….why don’t you hound the 1% elite to start using the recipes of old which were not UN healthy. Stop poisoning people with drugs in our food. No different than the diabetic epidemic….gee that did NOT exist UNTIL they started processing food with CORN SYRUP. I mean carrots, peas, beans, soup, tomato sauce, bread, etc. You name it…everything is processed with CORN SYRUP so now it tastes nasty. How about a good old fashioned can of CORN….nope can’t find it anywhere. A delicious can of tomato purée…nope…CORN SYRUP in it. BLAME OBESITY ON THE PROCESSING…USING CORN SYRUP WHEN IT IS NOT NEEDED OR NECESSARY. This started around 1980 when this abuse was allowed. DEMAND PROCESSING TO BE CORRECTED.
