Chelsea Clinton No Longer Vegetarian, Never a Vegan

Chelsea Clinton No Longer Vegetarian, Never a Vegan 13 Comments 2 BY MICHAEL DESTRIES JUNE 19, 2013 CATEGORIES: EATS, HEALTHY LIVING, VEGAN TAGS: CHELSEA CLINTON.

After 18 years of vegetarian living – a lifestyle that helped in part to inspire her dad President Bill Clinton to drop meat – Chelsea Clinton has revealed that she’s given it up. Actually, she surprisingly hasn’t been one for years.

In an article for NBC’s Rock Center, the 33-year-old details what inspired her at an early age to make ethical choices – and adopt a diet that was friendly towards animals.

“One spring day in my sixth grade Life Sciences class at Booker Arts Magnet Elementary School in Little Rock, Arkansas, we read two articles,” she writes. “The first concerned the cruelty toward cattle in slaughterhouses and the second was about the detrimental effects of red meat on your body. By the time I got home later that day, I had resolved to give up red meat, to take a stand against animal cruelty and a stand for my health (it seemed rather simple to my 11-year-old self).”

Sharing that she now eats meat (which is interesting considering the setup above), Clinton goes on to say that she has “tremendous respect for people who make consistent ethical choices in their lives – people who not only don’t eat meat, but who also don’t wear fur or leather and don’t use products made from animal derivatives.” In particular, she singles out Stella McCartney and her ethical fashion label as one example deserving of praise.

Digging back a bit, I found an April interview Chelsea did with Free Republic Parade Magazine that revealed she’s been mixing in the meat since age 29.

Free Republic: Rumor has it you’re a vegan. True?

Chelsea: I was never a vegan. I gave up red meat when I was 11 because in my seventh-grade life science class, we read two articles about red meat, and I think probably I needed to be a little zealous about something. I gave up all meat when I was 13. Then when I was 29, I woke up one day and craved red meat. My husband, who is an inveterate carnivore, was thrilled. My father is quite famously a vegan, and I am thrilled by that.

So – now you know. Cross one Clinton off the veg list.

why is Chelsea Mezvinsky never referred to by her married name? Why is she in the news, seen in public, etc. but never with her husband?

I never thought she was a vegetarian or a vegan, but I have though always considered her the offspring of vegetables.

Actually, she surprisingly hasn’t been one for years. Actually, she unsurprisingly gets to do what liberals do, which is to not do something and take credit for it.

We will probably find out Bubba's Vegan diet was something like this:

Neo-pagan as expected. I love hearing celebrities talk about how ethical their belief system is.

I wonder how she feels about the ethics of ripping human beings out of the womb in sacrifice to Moloch. (rhetorical question)

Didn't know, don't care.

Well, I do care. Another, yet not unexpected, liberal hypocrite of the "Do as I say what I was told to think and say, not as I do" school of cultural marxist indoctrination getting a broad platform for no real or legitimate reason.

Liberals will kill a baby in their own womb, then that afternoon fly around the world in a private jet to protest the death of animals.

It really is some sort of mental illness.

Precisely.

But it's more than that: it's an elevation of man to the level of God and deciding what is more worthy of life.

Personally, I’m a Vegetationarian.

I carefully follow this eating plan:

I eat vegetation
I eat things that eat vegetation
I eat things that eat things that eat vegetation
and I eat the nutritional by-products of the above.

It takes ethical and moral clarity, but I am doing well.

Did horse face convert?

I don’t see her as particularly a devout Christian.....which like a devout Jew

Is unlikely to convert and deny their faith

Just to suit in laws

Frankly a devout Christian or Jew are not a good match together in marriage

If progeny......

I have seen enough battles between Catholic and Baptists over spawn rights

No, I mean she was never a vegetarian. She didn’t just wake up one morning and decide she was hungry for red meat. she claimed to be a vegetarian to please the crowd she was hanging around (Hollywood) she always ate red meat. I don’t believe a word of it.

Linguistic activism. “Vegan” sounds like something from another planet, and most healthy people don’t care about any contrived difference between that and a vegetarian.
