Levin: 'Michelle Obama Is The New Eva Peron With Her Lunch Standards,' 'She Knows As Much As I Do'
Last night, radio host Mark Levin described the Department of Agriculture and Michelle Obama's new school lunch regulations as "tyranny."
Levin was discussing an article that stated many high school athletes and students are not getting enough food each day and are throwing away food because of the mandates instituted this year by the Department of Agriculture.
"But I think Michelle Obama is the new Eva Peron with her lunch standards," Levin said. "Like she knows something about this. She knows as much as I do. Eat carrots and celery. Yum, yum.
"But I'm gonna tell you something. These students - they're showing us the way. Mark, what do you mean? I want you to listen to this.
"Kyle Olsen, Townhall. 'Complaints against Michelle Obama's new lunch menu mount. In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the US Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.'
"First of all, where does the Constitution empower her or that department to reach all the way down to every school- public school - in this country and set the menu?
"Are people in the local communities - are you incapable of overseeing this yourself? Is your school board incapable of doing this? Are your local administrators and principals - are they incapable of doing this?
"We need the Department of Agriculture and Michelle Obama to mandate who eats what, where, how, and when in our public school systems? That's tyranny right there - it's absurd.
"Alright, let's move on, shall we? Let's see. 'Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations'- this by the way is on the Drudge Report - he's got a headline there if you want to see it.'
"'Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who are in an all-out revolt. 'I know a lot of my friends who are just drinking a jug of milk for lunch; they're not getting a proper meal,' middle school Samantha Gortmaker told keloland.com. Despite the fact that new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it's not pleasing students.'
"That sums up government right there. Price goes up - price goes up, quality, quantity goes down. You're paying for less, and they're mandating it.
"So chalk one up again for the Obama administration. Starving our public school children. How do you like that? Ladies and gentlemen, big government sucks. Everything it touches turns into crap."
