Utah teacher awards extra credit for eating bugs
A Utah middle school teacher recently awarded extra credit to students for eating grasshoppers as part of an essay assignment arguing that people should eat bugs in an effort to fight climate change.Kim Cutler, a teacher at Spring Canyon Mid...
This is where we need vegan and vegetarian parents, particularly the religious kind, to sue and stop and punish these wef thugs.
exactly, let's call on the vegans, THEY'LL do something
Funny enough it'll probably work. Tho...considering how batshit some of them are, they might be in favor of it.
What I find funny is we had something similar to this in grade 4 and 5. But the extra credit on eating food was for things like: Seal Flipper Pie, quail & quail eggs, fox steak, beaver stew, muskrat strips, and so-on.
Tho, I did grow up in a mostly rural area. Where they taught winter survival skills from grade 1 to grade 8. They don't even teach that now, and this was all in Canada.
Those are all edible that people have been eating. No culture has a custom of eating bugs, especially crickets.
I call BS on that. Plenty of places eat meal worms, locusts, etc. when I was traveling in SE Asia I saw the kids go out as a pack to wrangle enough locusts for dinner.
That being said, I’m not eating bugs. I’ll feed them to my chickens and eat eggs.
That's BS, that I already expected from ignorant. A lot of culture eats worms, grasshoopers, locusts, bee worms and not etc. That's all. They never are eaten as staple food for everyday meal. On top of that, I said crickets have been been eaten in any/little culture that they push. They are not pushing meal worms or locusts that are proven to be eatable as a "snack" because people around the world have been eating them, but they are pushing bugs especially crickets. There are no studies on the health effect of eating crickets not only as a everyday "meal", but also as a "snack". Roasted crickets are found to leave bacteria, used as a spontaneous abortion medicine by Chinese medicine practice, and contains chitin more than crab. They are trying to make us eat something no humans have been eating. I just want to educate people on what they do this and why they do this. What they do is already evil, don't ever think there is any rational behind any of that.
You are pushing the goalpost. In the post I responded to you never said anything about “staple” meals. You said no culture has bug eating traditions. There are absolutely cultural traditions of eating certain bugs. The Jews even codified it in their dietary laws. What I said was not ignorant, and if you want to qualify your message feel free, but doing so after the fact and calling me ignorant is disingenuous.
I am very familiar with this bug eating agenda. Your response was very typical. Sorry, I kinda bait it, so that I can explain further if someone responds. But you call it BS, which is not BS because they push crickets, not other bugs people in many culture have been eating. The chain of dialog like this leads people to get red-pilled on this issue because then people wonder why they push crickets. Somehow it has to be cricket...
Yeah that's interesting...cause I had also learned that if you're allergic to shellfish, you'll likely be allergic to insects. And with more Chitin, you'll likely have MORE allergies - which is dangerous. Not too mention bugs are DISGUSTING.
In 3rd world countries. In the land of plenty u eat what u want because there's more where that comes from.
This is masochistic shit. Your ancestors probably ate squirrel cause the globalists of the time wanted it so.
There is literally nothing wrong with eating game animals. My parents and grandparents were dirt poor and hunted game. I’m not ashamed of that.
Honestly we should all take pride in the stubbornness, innovation, and self sufficiency of our ancestors. They had to work hard and be crafty survive the worst the world could throw at them, with a lot less than we have today. Eating squirrel was the least of anyone’s worries and I bet they are delicious.
3rd world shitholes with a track record of tyrannical rule maybe
Actually not true.. but NO culture has a custom of eating primarily insects. Theyre occasional opportunistic protein or for rituals, not a primary food source except in times of absolute desperation.
Correct. But do you agree no culture has a custom of eating crickets?
No, but Id agree if you said no culture has a custom of using crickets as a primary protein source.
It's not even as a primary protein source. When there was no food like starving condition, people had eaten, tree roots, grasshoppers, locus, but never crickets. Crickets are micro-toxic. Chinese medicine uses it to cause spontaneous abortion. Crickets eat dead creatures, other crickets, live in dirty environment. Above all, there is no or little studies on the health effect of eating crickets. We don't even know how much we can eat cricket in a day or in a week to be safe. They are also advocating cockroach milk. They are pushing something no humans have never been eating or more like kept avoiding.
not by choice
Arabs will eat locusts, but thats probably because when there are enough locusts to eat, there probably isnt anything else.
locusts eat grass, and people in many cultures eat them for that reason. They are pushing crickets, not locusts, which would be more reasonable, but they aren't. I wonder why...
It’s grooming, change my mind.
grooming like how? isn't teaching a child anything technically grooming then?
Grooming is a derogatory term to describe coaching children (primarily) to adhere and uphold values and behaviors that are ultimately detrimental to their wellbeing. Grooming is the opposite of education. Climate hoaxes, gender nonsense, obey Big Brother. It all requires ignoring science and logic while demanding blind obedience, so, Grooming.
Yes, I don’t understand why some people think all grooming has to be sexual when plenty of historical literature uses the term more broadly (the way a potter molds clay), such as the father grooming his child to inherit the fathers business, etc.
right, but we're now using it to describe basically anything, and then "change my mind"
Grooming and 'being groomed' have been widely used terms forever. Usually in a positive sense. Being groomed for your next position in a company, etc.
'Groomer' is fairly new and is the one that is typically derogatory toward those sexually grooming people. Using it for shit like this weakens it's impact on the actual sexual groomers, and probably should not be used here, even though the terminology and use are actually correct.
Especially when we can just say 'EAT ZE BUGS!' to drive the point home here.
Eating bugs is not even an established skill. No culture has a custom of eating bugs as a staple food, and no culture has a custom of eating crickets for some obvious reasons. They are experimenting a new, untested, unsafe food to children. That's probably called worse than "grooming".
If I said groomer, yes, I deserve to be called out. I didn’t say groomer, and people took it the wrong way.
We can’t say liberals are changing the definitions of things (like what is a woman) and then say that only one (very recent) definition of groom/ing/ed is acceptable for discussion.
Be a net zero hero. Eat the bugs.
I agree that in order to drive the point it should solely apply the sexualization of children.
You're not wrong. Grooming should be kept "special" so it is more impactful when 'grooming' is used to describe sexual grooming of children by democrats.
You have a great point.
To the rest of you:
Its important to argue about stuff like this and its not autistic. Not autistic at all.
So if I’m well groomed for a dinner party, or I groom my horse, what do you think I’m doing exactly?
Are you sure your definition isn’t too specific??
Eating bugs is not even a established skill. No culture has ever a custom of eating bugs, especially crickets as a staple food. They are not even proved to be safe. There is no studies done about if eating bugs as a staple food is even fine. There are several reports recently that people die right after eating bugs. They are experimenting a completely new lifestyle to children without any safety checks.
Sexual grooming is a specific type of grooming, but not all grooming is sexual.
oh good! then the term has become basically worthless. I'm grooming you to downvote me right now.
I’m not the one making the term more specific than its dictionary definition. That’s not a me problem, that’s a you problem.
You're the one replying to my request for clarification.
Doesn’t change the fact I quoted a dictionary definition and you expect me to downvote you for it. Maybe I should, you’re being ridiculous right now.
Now do rainbows
welcome to preschool. do you know what a penis is? eat some crickets and i’ll show you
huh? I'm 40, not a preschooler.
whoosh. i’m close. want to see it?
What, is this a sexual thing? Stop messaging me.
It’s weird how none of the climate stuff ever happens
It’s weird how the emphasis on electric cars is just so good for China and their massive rare earth element deposits
These people believe anything
Yea I was Vegan back in 2012-2014 and met some people in that scene. When the Pandemic hit, about 90% of them threw out the window all the information and convictions they held overnight. The only ones who stuck to their convictions (just as far as I know and who I followed) were Dantheman "the life regenerater" and Durianrider.
I still remember all those docs about "big pharma" and big agriculture and people circle-jerking over them but then getting the clotshot like everything they just learned was just a joke. a LARP.
There are no truly religious vegans...
I have a retard leftist at work getting on the bug train. It's so scary how malleable their minds are. They really just do whatever their leftwing handlers (Reddit in this guy's case) tell them to do. Actually he's the second leftist guy I work with advocating for bugs. The other guy was a Redditor too, not so coincidentally.
Long story short, if you use Reddit, there's a good chance you are a retard.
As opposed to Patriots.win, who single-handedly spearheaded the largest gas station sticker campaign in US History
Everything is programming, everything is a psyop. Some are for evil (reddit) some for good (P.win). The choice you get is how to be programmed.
So the faggots want OTHER people to eat zee bugs or are they snacking on them themselves?
The ones at the top want other people to eat ze bugs while they eat fillet steak. Their moron minions will swallow the bullshit propaganda, along with the bugs, and snack on them themselves.
The only useful parts of Reddit are small game dev pages and r/gundeals
They do what they want. I will never eat zee bugz
There are ants in Australia that taste like sour apple, those are ok I guess.
EAT ZE BUGZ! TAKE ZE VACCINE! ACCEPT ZE CBDC!
Thank you citizen 79573821 for your patriotism your new pod is now 33% bigger then your last pod. Keep up the hard work citizen number 79573821.
Sorry, we meant 3.3% bigger.
*33% bigger than standard pod increase of 1cm for a total of 1.33cm
If it takes a mandate to eat bugs for "climate change," to wake up the average NPC into a tree-watering rage, then so be it.
Interesting that this leftist is hiding out in the LDS state of Utah.
Modern Mormons are suckers for authoritarianism. There was a shift in the church maybe 40 years ago from the ideas of "agency" and independent thinking (once highly prized) to straight-up, bow-your-head obedience to authority - really any authority.
Mormonism used to be a pretty agile religion, at least in its cosmology. Its current culture is anything but.
(Utahan, but not a Mormon. High respect on lots of fronts, though. None on others.)
You are correct on this. Spent my whole life living in Utah, I myself am not Mormon, but compare the Ezra Taft Benson period to now and it's completely different. Utah went from "The constitution will be hanging by a thread and we're gonna save it" to it's current Romney/Cox era. Many of the Mormons in my community supported Bo Gritz as a presidential candidate in 1992 who ran on the platform of abolishing the federal income tax and the federal reserve. Then the same people in my community started to lean globo-homo in a couple of decades. - The 2002 Olympics maybe? I know a lot of good Mormons, but I worry they won't do much to save America as they become more dependent on globalist money. They seem to be getting direction from something other than their heart and heads to put their faith in institutions of man rather than freedom and independence from God.
Really resonates with what I've experienced. Very thoughtful post. Thank you.
Have you ever been to SLC?
SLC is ultra-pozzed
Maybe not as much as Portland or SF, but it aspires to be
Exactly. Not sure why it’s a surprise that leftists are present in Utah when SLC is a major haven.
If your are a level 7 vegan you can’t eat anything that casts a shadow. They should sue.
Lol was that bit on simpsons with the hippy boy real?
You got that reference.
Can't imagine a more disgusting and unhealthy diet. Eating their slimy guts full of diseases with nothing but a thin exoskeleton that doesn't have any meat.
There needs to be consequences for a mentally ill person taking the role of teacher and endangering children.
That exoskeleton is also made of Chitin, which is pretty much toxic to humans. Especially in high quantities, like making it a central part of diet.
Try making a Mooslim child to eat bugs.
Or a child of the only Abrahamic religion to not be rebuked by Jordan Peterson.
Jews? Are you talking about Jews?
Jordan Peterson and I would never dare.
Grasshoppers and crickets are biblically clean. Mealworms and pretty much any other kind of insect are biblically unclean. John the Baptist ate locusts (what we call grasshoppers).
I’m calling the ADL on you.
What a year to push the methane-kills-polar-bears bullshit in Utah as communities prepare sandbags for historic snowmelt.
Yep. My crocuses are often out in January...yet it snowed again last night here on the bench. The snowpack is out of this world.
Good thing they just passed brand new water laws during this dry and rain-free year 🙃
This the place? https://scms.nebo.edu/
Grooming takes all forms…not an inch if you don’t want them to take a mile.
Has no one asked how it is that mass farming bugs is going to be any less resource intensive or environmentally damaging than what we already do?
Shit is about as dumb as thinking everyone switching to EVs is gonna save the planet.
Insects are more efficient at turning plants into protein. I'm not advocating that we eat them, but that is true. It's also true that meaty animals like pigs, chickens, cows, etc., don't cause global warming, so the entire premise of the argument for eating insects instead is flawed.
It’s not supposed to make sense
Clown World has no peak fren
Follow the money.
Bugs have a toxin in them called chitlin so a teacher giving bugs to eat in mass quantities is the same as getting a kid Drano and saying here take a sip of these every few days
There needs to be massive school reform. I live in Florida and it's damn near impossible for me as a parent to see lesson plans. Also, communism needs to be cleaned from our society.
Let’s see how long until some disease is traced back to the bugs. I wanna hold this teacher down and force feed them a whole bag full. Yuck!
Bugs carry parasites and bacteria, the very bad pseudomonus antibiotic resistant bacteria. The next virus pandemic could be from eating bugs.
The point of essays used to be learning to think critically and forming your own conclusion. Now the point is to agree with whatever the Commie regime says. However, they don’t even agree with themselves. You’re never right and you deserve to be punished.
Worst grade I ever got on an essay was when I disagreed with the teacher about the theme. I’d never seen so much red ink before.
Crickets like this probably farmed in "clean" room and decent feed still contain bacteria even if they are roasted. They have toxin that do not get removed by drying and roasting them. There are no or little studies on the health effect of eating bugs/crickets as a staple food. There is no culture where people eat bugs like every day meal, and there is no culture where people eat crickets that seem available everywhere for clearly intensional reasons. In Chinese medicine, it is prescribed to cause natural abortion as micro-toxin. Bugs can be only snacks that you may eat or not in a year, not as a staple food for the protein substitute.
Eating bugs especially crickets is very dangerous. Almost no culture has a custom of eating Crickets, seemingly intentionally avoiding it despite the fact they are everywhere. Crickets is used as abortion/infertile medicine in Chinese medicine. There is no safety studies done about eating crickets as a food. There are several no-no reasons about eating crickets that you can find if you look up.
It's much worse than it sounds. The kids were forced to write an essay about why eating bugs is better than raising cattle as livestock because, according to the teacher, cattle are one of the "leading sources of climate change". The children were explicitly not allowed to write a dissenting opinion, they HAD to agree with the teacher. When one student tried to argue with the teacher about it the teacher flat out shut them down and said they were wrong and that there was "only one right answer". Pure indoctrination and that teacher needs to be booted not just out of the classroom but the school system in general.
You know, looking back, I always thought the book “How To Eat Fried Worms” was a stupid piece we were all required to read. Now is see it in the lens of a stupid fucking propaganda primer piece, instead of just plain old shitty literature.
I got extra credit in my biology class in the 90s for making a Cell Model out of brownies. And shared the deliciousness with the whole class. Times have changed...
I wonder how many pesticides those poor kids ate without knowing?
Pesticides?! They ate the actual pests!
Wild bugs may have pesticides on them, it's why you don't feed them to exotic pets like lizards, tarantula's, scorpions, ect.. They can die. Seriously what grade you in anyway?
U r berry smrt.
Bugs carry parasites. This is so ungodly idiotic, not to mention disgusting.
It’s so sad hearing about stuff like this in supposedly “red” states.
Will no one rid me of this meddlesome
priestDepartment of Education?
It's against some people's religion to eat insects. This is pointless discrimination.
run that motherfuiker out of the school.. they should be so ashamed by the public that they quit.. This billgates bug eating nonsense (he'll never do it or fake meat) is garbage! Stop being ruled over by the people that want to conquer you for their own agendas.
All california scum have settled in Utah. They are like crickets moving eastward and ravaging everything in their path.
When do we get to make them eat lead?
And if one of those kids has a shellfish allergy and dies from eating these bugs that the teacher had no right to feed them? What then?
Teachers are not there to feed my child anything. My child's diet is NONE of their business.
We need a religion that prevents you to eat bugs :D ...Anti-globalistians or something..
Might want to take a peek inside the Old Testament or Torah or Koran.
May Kim burn in hell here on earth.
We disected frogs in 4th grade these kids are eating bugs for extra credit wtf is wrong with these teachers someone needs to kick their asses
