(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Fox News host Tucker Carlson tasted a burger full of insects while discussing efforts to promote bugs as food.
“Leaving politics aside, we’re assuming for this segment this will be inevitable, we’re going to be eating bugs,” Carlson said to chef Joseph Yoon, who founded the Brooklyn Bugs restaurant in 2017 and was previously seen in a video from the World Economic Forum. “Might as well make the best of it, and you have done that.”
In January, the European Union approved the use of cricket power in food, allowing it to be used in various food items, such as pasta, bread and meat substitutes, according to the Daily Caller.
The globalist establishment — including media outlets, companies and leaders all around the world — has been pushing for many years the idea that people should be shifting away from eating meat by substituting insects, including former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
“So before we get into what you prepared today, I think everyone has the same question in mind: Will cockroaches be on the menu?” Carlson asked Yoon.
“All the insects that are – that we use are farm to harvested specifically for human consumption and cockroaches may be on that list but I, personally, don’t really think that we’re ready for cockroaches just yet,” Yoon replied.
Carlson then tried several of the items, including chocolate-covered crickets and cricket caramel popcorn.
“I would eat chocolate-covered crickets all day,” he said.
Carlson then picked up a cricket burger to eat it.
“That’s not bad at all,” Carlson said after taking a bite.
Yoon tried to defend himself and his business by disavowing globalists’ efforts to force people to discard eating meat.
“I think whether people like it or dislike it, it’s important just to give people the option,” he said.
