Michael Brown on We Don’t Need to Start ‘Eating Babies’ Yet

You’ve probably seen the video by now. A deeply concerned woman stands up to speak at an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez town hall meeting. We must make radical changes within months before climate change destroys us, she says. Bombing Russia is not enough. There are still too many people on the planet. We need to start eating the babies! And how did Ocasio-Cortez respond?

Before we look at her answer, let’s put this bizarre incident in context.

According to the most recent reports, the woman in the audience, wearing her “Save the Planet, Eat the Children” T-shirt, was planted by the far-right LaRouche PAC. If this is true, she did a great job of staying in character. And if so, she is not alone. For an interview with another alleged supporter of this ideology, see here.

Still, even if this were a political stunt, it was not carried out in a vacuum. Instead, it reflects the doomsday scenario we’re hearing about day and night from the radical climate activists: “We only have years to fix the problem, or we’re all doomed!” This woman just took things one step further: We only have months!

The same society that shouts its abortions and, in certain situations, defends infanticide, has already deemed the innocent lives of babies expendable. Why not take things one big step further?

Granted, it’s a horrifically massive, almost unimaginable step to go from killing babies in the womb to killing and eating them outside the womb. (I cringe even to write such ghastly words.) But, to repeat: Even this outrageous (and staged) plea could not have been made in a society that had not already dehumanized babies in the womb.

Interestingly, last month, a “Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to ‘awaken the idea.'” Allegedly, Soderlund also “suggested more plausible options such as eating pets and insects.”

Are these reports true?

According to Snopes, “Magnus Söderlund did not propose or advocate cannibalism as a solution to climate change during a Sept. 3 interview on the Swedish television channel TV4. Rather, he explained that his research into the issue was intended to provoke thought and gauge where audiences would ‘draw the line’ in their willingness to consume various kinds of meat.”

And where, exactly, would audiences draw the line when it comes to stopping the climate change apocalypse?

This leads us back to Ocasio-Cortez’s town hall meeting.

As the “eat the children” speaker continued making her impassioned plea, the audience became disturbed. (To be candid, though, it took some time for them to react.)

Ocasio-Cortez, for her part, listened politely, indicating that she didn’t want the woman removed.

Then, as staffers tried to get the woman to sit down, Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“We need to treat the climate crisis with the urgency it does present,” she said.
