I watched the first episode of the post-Carlson 8 p.m. ET hour on Fox, and if it is any indication, there won’t be much new in the politics that are pushed on Fox’s viewers.
After a segment criticizing weight loss surgery for severely obese teens, it was back to climate change and criticism of a New York Times op-ed regarding meat and climate.
The guest, climate change denier Marc Morano, seemed to make a Nazi reference by invoking the anti-fascist speeches of the German Pastor Martin Niemoller.
While Niemoller was trying to make points about complacency during the rise of Nazis, Morano’s version of the words were about his opposition to curbing carbon emissions.
“First they came for your energy. Then they came for your gas powered cars, your freedom of movement, your cheap flights. And now they’re coming for your food,” Morano said, suggesting New York Mayor Eric Adams would eventually try to outlaw the consumption of meat when in fact he has only pledged to limit the spending of city funds on it.
“They’re going after our modern diet,” Morano said. “You will eat nothing to be happy according to this plan.”
And thus, the diet fed to Fox viewers is unlikely to change, even without its biggest star.

“First, they came for your energy. Then they came for your gas-powered cars, your freedom of movement, your cheap flights. Now they’re coming for your food,” Morano, author of “The Great Reset: Global Elites and the Permanent Lockdown,” said on “Fox News Tonight.” “They will be monitoring what you eat. What’s coming next are the restrictions,” Morano said. “We are already seeing it globally with a net-zero commitment. They’re going after high-yield agriculture trying to collapse them. We saw the disaster in Sri Lanka. You also have Bill Gates… America’s number one single farmland owner and his goal is to get us to eat his billions of dollars invested in fake meat or his lab-grown synthetic beef made from the stem cells of animals and literally put it in a steel vat and printed on a 3D printer. Not making that up. The fix is in.”
“This will only happen if we allow it. They’re going after our modern diet. You will eat nothing and be happy according to this plan,” he added.
They’re always looking for reasons why the rest of us can’t be free. Now they’re going after rice production. There’s a big story in major media about rice causing all this global warming and emissions. But going after the meat is a way to make everything a problem in a climate emergency. Therefore, they have to be in charge of all this food. They’re not going to try to ban it. They will take over the means of production so the rest of us don’t destroy the Earth. We have to be managed. That’s what we’re looking at.”
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade: “Marc Morano, Thanks so much. We need some pushback and you are doing it.”
