Comedy Central Lampoon Takes Aim at FDA Raw Milk Raid
by Kimberly Hartke, Weston A. Price Foundation
When comedians start having a field day, it is a good day in politics.
Ok, so talking about vibrations may not be the best way to “sell” the health benefits of raw milk, but you have got to admit, this is important publicity of this event. I love the way the word raw turns to war on the milk bottle, the graphics department at Colbert Report is RAWESOME! I can’t wait until you see this!
Some raw milk fans on facebook are reluctant to share this, because this pokes fun at the issue. However, for those who don’t even have food rights on their radar, this lampoon will make them aware that:
1) Our government is taking over farm buying clubs by force with an intent to shut them down.
2) There is an argument between health foodists and public health officials about the benefits/risks of raw milk.
3) Individual liberties are at risk.
From a publicity point of view, all news is good news, and when a popular humorist tackles the issue, it will be influential. Now, all you need to do is share this and add your own “spin.”
Laughter, after all is contagious, and that will cause this segment to go viral, which can only help our cause. Yesterday afternoon this video had 6,000+ views, this morning it is at 36,000+. When it reaches millions, the truth will WIN.
So, don’t be shy, SHARE!
