New “Food Czar” Part of Ongoing Obama Divisiveness

Justin Danhof, director of the National Center’s Free Enterprise Project, said there is “nothing that the Obama Administration can’t make political — even our favorite steak and potatoes.”

Calling her the Obama White House’s new “food czar,” Danhof criticized the past activities of Angela Tagtow — the newly-appointed head of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Center for Nutrition Policy — and noted that it gives the impression that she will likely want to spend more government time and taxpayer money focusing on faddish environmental activism in the form of promoting low-carbon foods, urban gardening and cheering on nanny-state soda bans rather than relying upon time-honored and sound science-based nutritional guidelines.

Host Rick Amato, on the 7/30/14 edition of “The Rick Amato Show” on the One America Network, said that this appointment is yet another example of Barack Obama seeking to divide Americans through issues involving race, sex and wealth, among other things.  Danhof added that Obama seems to make everything political, and that any blame for what Tagtow might do — including the possibility of any promotion of national dietary standards similar to Michelle Obama’s unpopular school lunch guidelines — begins and ends with the President.
