Disinfo: Countries refusing to cut meat, dairy production will be proclaimed terrorist and attacked

Summary

In some countries like France local authorities started following Bill Gates’ call for substitution of national meat with synthetic one. Vegetarianism has for a long time been promoted by influential media and political forces. They put meat consumption on the same line as traditional values, church, Trump, and guns. Scientists explained how harmful meat is for humans and blamed stockbreeding for global warming. Even before COVID-19 pandemic intellectual circles have come to a consensus that an educated person is to good to eat meat.

Amid the pandemic, a number of global organisations, including the WHO, UN, and WEF started a pro-active campaign targeting the consumption of meat and dairy products. The WHO called for a more adequate menu in public canteens with as little saturated fats (i.e. meet and dairy products) as possible. The UN plans to make meat and dairy products luxurious by reducing their production and skyrocketing their prices. Countries who do not follow this madness and refuse to destroy stockbreeding will be labeled “global terrorists” contributing to global warming.

John Kerry used to say that the US will treat global changes as a direct military threat. The US has learned how to make military conflicts out of cultural disagreements. Possibly, in the near future a cutlet made of natural meat will become a pretext for a global conflict.

Disproof

This article ridicules The West and Western values. It also misinterprets the actions of a number of international organisations, makes various unjustified claims and generalisations, and promotes a modification of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global elites secretly ruling the world. It suggests there is a big conspiracy between US Democrats, Bill Gates, global media, and international organisations aimed at cutting meat and dairy production. Read our past analysis "Why authoritarians love the concept of the big conspiracy" for more details.

More than a decade ago, one U.N. report found that farmed animals produced 35% to 40% of all methane emissions; a more recent U.N. report estimated the share of greenhouse-gas emissions caused by humans derive from agriculture and food processing to be from 21% to 37%. Scientists suggest that, as the world population continues growing, it will be impossible to grow the animal-based protein supply to match future demand and to provide affordable, healthy and sustainable protein to everyone.

However, there is no WHO or UN campaign against meat and dairy products as such. International organisations, scientists, private businesses, and other stakeholders rather discuss the ways for making agriculture more sustainable, including technologies for producing plant-based meat and dairy products. The UN is not in position to regulate supply and demand for meat and therefore to skyrocket prices for it, as alleged.

The claims about equating Trump, guns, and eating meat by the US Democrats, possible designation of countries as 'terrorist' for keeping meet production uncut, and US military threats to such countries in the future are likewise conspiracy.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that globalists engineered medical tyranny, that global elites want to increase control of the population after the pandemic, and that it is absurd to suggest that Russia may inspire coronavirus-related conspiracy theories.

The Estonian Foreign Intelligence Service has become a Russophobic propaganda machine

The Estonian Foreign Intelligence Service has become a Russophobic propaganda machine. Its latest 2021 security report is propaganda and psychological warfare aimed at portraying Russia and its foreign policy in a negative light.

Disproof

The geopolitica.ru article repeats pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative attempting to depict Western accusations of aggressive Russian behavior as baseless and driven solely by "Russophobia". This narrative is often targeting the Baltic States and Poland. See a recent EUvsDisinfo insight.

The claim that Estonian Foreign Intelligence Service (EFIS) is a “Russophobic propaganda machine” is incorrect. The main function of EFIS (Välisluureamet) is to collect, analyse and report on Estonia's external security threats.

NATO would collapse if it abandoned the concept of the "Russian threat"

NATO would begin to collapse if it abandoned the concept of the "Russian threat".

The alliance does not address any of the real challenges facing the Western world, such as terrorism or the Coronavirus pandemic, but rather, it completely fights invented and hypothetical threats.

"Russian threat" has become the only pretext and basis for the existence of NATO and the preservation of the US strategic control over Europe. Without this phantom threat, the alliance will begin to crumble.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Western Russophobia and alleged belligerent NATO, portraying the Alliance as a threat to peace and Russia, and is consistent with recurring portrayal on NATO member states' subordination to the US.

NATO is in no way directed against Russia or any other state. NATO’s objectives are set out in the 1949 Washington Treaty which forms the legal basis of the alliance. The treaty states that parties “are resolved to unite their efforts for collective defence and for the preservation of peace and security”.

External aggression against Belarus is just beginning

If earlier the main burden of organising a coup d'etat in Belarus was borne by the small Eastern European subordinates like Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine, then the change of power in the US brought heavy artillery into the process. On November 5, 2020, the OSCE published the "Report of the OSCE Rapporteur in the framework of the Moscow Mechanism in connection with reports of human rights violations in the context of the presidential elections in Belarus", whose recommendations are unprecedented interference in the internal affairs of Belarus and, in fact, a demand to abolish the Constitution and laws of the country, renounce sovereignty and put the state under external control. Thus, the OSCE explicitly demands "to cancel the results of the presidential elections on August 9, 2020 and to organise a new genuine presidential election on the basis of international standards under the supervision of the OSCE / ODIHR."

It is quite obvious that external aggression against Belarus is just beginning and is gaining momentum. The stake was made on a coup and seizure of power by a handful of grant-eaters who are obedient puppets of the West.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative framing popular protests as Western-backed 'colour revolutions', part of a campaign to portray massive mobilisations in Belarus as a destabilisation effort orchestrated from abroad.

There is no evidence that Poland, Lithuania or any other Western governments are involved in the protests in Belarus. There was no coup in Belarus. Protests erupted to contest the results of the presidential election in Belarus on the 9th of August 2020, which were not monitored by independent experts and are largely considered fraudulent by both international observers and a big part of Belarusian society. Mobilisations were organised and carried out by local actors, opposition politicians, and Belarusian citizens, without any foreign involvement. On 19 August 2020, the European Council called the Belarusian elections neither free nor fair.
