Bill Gates apparently just can’t resist weighing in on anything, from COVID to vaccines to the environment, along with virtually any other type of leftist preference. Stunningly, Bill Gates even recently weighed in on Trump’s ban from social media, especially when he remarked that Trump should be permitted to be back online.
However, Gates apparently could not deliver these remarks without some type of derision, including derision that fails to take into account the 1st Amendment and other constitutionally guaranteed liberties.

“Probably” should have his social media accounts reinstated? Seriously? If Gates had simply eliminated the statement “probably,” then it would have been a perfect statement.
Or, considering the other commentary that followed, it would not have been so perfect after all. After all, Gates followed up his social media comments with other judgments passed on Trump, which he apparently just can’t resist doing.
“It’s weird when you’re, you know, saying that the election was stolen without any facts there. And how corrosive that is … But I’ll bet they’ll find a way to let him back on …
You know in a way … people’s interest in what he says may go down quite a bit … That’ll be interesting to watch.” [Source: Fox News]
“Corrosive.” You know what else is “corrosive?” Corroding constitutional rights.
And, intriguingly, Gates does amuse with his comment about people losing interest in what Trump has to say, as the same analogy could be easily applied to Gates himself. After all, Gates is the one suggesting that Americans switch to fully synthetic beef, which is quite the remarkable suggestion for the classic American diet, which most people probably do not have an “interest” in.
Like a typical leftist, Gates also says that synthetic beef consumption should be a prospect for “all rich countries.”
“I don’t think the poorest 80 countries will be eating synthetic meat. I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.”

Gates himself got seriously rich from one of the “rich countries,” which leads one to wonder exactly why he is so interested in undermining so much of it. One also begins to get a better sense of exactly why Gates has purchased so much farmland in the United States, all of it clearly designated for his “meatless” dream for America.
Never mind the beef industry and everyone it employs, of course, as such individuals are inconsequential to elitist billionaires.
Including apparently other nations, of whom Gates has apparently appointed himself chief spokesman.
“For Africa and other poor countries, we’ll have to use animal genetics to dramatically raise the amount of beef per emissions for them. Weirdly, the US livestock, because they’re so productive, the emissions per pound of beef are dramatically less than emissions per pound in Africa. And as part of the [Bill and Melinda Gates] Foundation’s work, we’re taking the benefit of the African livestock, which means they can survive in heat, and crossing in the monstrous productivity both on the meat side and the milk side of the elite US beef lines.” [Source: MIT Technology Review]
Well, at least Gates somewhat attempts to either order around or speak for most nations, if only to promote his own power even further. That said, one can only hope that Gates’ vision for the future American diet, not to mention future American free speech, never manifests.
