NPR claims elites pushing population to eat bugs a ‘conspiracy theory’
By News Editors // Apr 05, 2023

State-funded National Public Radio published a piece Sunday claiming the notion that the world’s elite are pushing for people to eat bugs is a “conspiracy theory.”

In the article titled, “From 4chan to international politics, a bug-eating conspiracy theory goes mainstream,” NPR’s Huo Jingnan argued that the backlash against eating bugs is founded on a “baseless conspiracy theory” propagated by the likes of Infowars founder Alex Jones and Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“Including insects in human food has been an emerging, but still marginal, idea among climate scientists and food security experts. In countries where insects have not been a part of the diet, it’s an idea that has long been met with hesitancy and occasional ridicule,” Jingnan wrote.

“In recent years, however, this aversion has fused with an amorphous and shapeshifting conspiracy theory in which a shadowy global elite conspires to control the world’s population. For those who espouse the theory, eating bugs isn’t just a matter of disgust, or questioning the impacts of climate change. It’s framed as a matter of individual freedom and government control.”

The NPR piece then defended the World Economic Forum and its Great Reset initiative and argued that the people who “supported eating insects only suggest doing so on a voluntary basis.”

“Vague and sprawling, the Great Reset urged a rethinking of national and global systems of government in the wake of COVID-19. The gathering of global elites in Davos has long held the imagination of conspiracy theorists and the initiative quickly became construed as evidence that global elites were using the outbreak to further enslave the masses,” Jingnan wrote.

After claiming nobody is trying to encourage bug-eating, NPR then went on a jag defending the practice of bug-eating, arguing that opposition to the idea of consuming insects is rooted in colonialism.

“There was very much an idea that you are what you eat back then. And so the Europeans felt they needed European foods,” Julie Lesnik, an associate professor of biological anthropology at Wayne State University in Detroit told NPR. “There is very much a worry that if you ate the Indigenous foods, you would become a savage.”

“Conservative media influencers continue to tap into this sentiment today,” NPR declared, before writing that “Lesnik sees a throughline between the early colonizers and the conservative outrage today.”

“The easiest punching bag…is to pick on something that looks uncivilized,” she added.

So, in its attempt to argue nobody is pushing you to eat bugs, the network instead insisted eating bugs is a good thing and if you don’t agree then you’re racist.

Perhaps pathetic propaganda like this is why NPR laid off 10% of its workforce in recent weeks, which led to its employees accusing the network’s CEO John Lansing of racism.

As Infowars and others have exhaustively reported over years, the World Economic ForumCNNTime Magazine, The Washington Postprofessorsschoolscelebrities, and corporations have been conditioning the masses in recent years to accept a future where bugs are a major staple of their diet to fight climate change.

That’s why countries like Italy and Hungary recently passed laws to protect their citizens from the European Union’s push to market insects as food.
