Treehugger Splodey Heads – Whole Foods Founder and CEO Says Obamacare is Fascism…

The eat treebark and twigs crowd is going batsh!t crazy that John Mackey is an advocate of capitalism and finds Obamacare to be anti-capitalist.   Excellent interview on Greta Van Sustern last night – Click Here

(Via NPR)  Whole Foods has played a key role in propelling organic foods into the mainstream. The specialty supermarket chain has more than 300 stores and plans to continue expanding. But outspoken founder and co-CEO John Mackey is not the crunchy granola liberal one might conjure while perusing aisles of earnestly labeled blue corn chips and gently misted red peppers. [...]

Mackey

When Inskeep asks him if he still thinks the health law is a form of socialism, as he’s said before, Mackey responds:

“Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it — and that’s what’s happening with our health care programs and these reforms.”

Still, Mackey sees room to cooperate with the administration on another front: efforts to reform the American diet, a pet project of first lady Michelle Obama.

“People in America are addicted to sugar, and to fat and to salt,” he says, and as a nation, it’s holding us back. “Food is intensely pleasurable, and people are afraid that if they change the way they eat, they’ll stop having pleasure.”

Still, he acknowledges how hard it can be to stick to a health-conscious diet. Restaurant meals, he says, rarely meet his personal dietary rules — not just no meat, but also no oil or refined flour. Luckily, Mackey jokes, there’s a Whole Foods to be found wherever he travels.  (read more)

I think it is profoundly ironic that one of Whole Foods best known celebrity customers is First Lady Michelle Obama, given that her husband Barack will force many Whole Foods employees to lose pay,  hours and benefits because of the First Family Socialist ideology…..

    Proud to be a vegan. LOL my cholesterol has gone down dramatically and I feel a lot better. lost weight as well, and I don’t even diet. LOL Steaks and chicken taste great, but it’s all about controlling what you eat.
    Socialism is like Venezuela where they only pay 18 cents for a gallon of gas. the people own the oil. we will never pay 18 cents for a gallon of gas. the oil lobbyists pay off the politicians as do the outsourcers do also so they can get tax breaks. that’s fascism. Fascism is the complete opposite of socialism, and is a far right ideology, while socialism is left leaning. Fascism is more like corporatism. Socialism and fascism are totally opposite. btw, this isn’t opinion. I agree with a lot of ideals from both parties (cutting welfare, advocating gun rights, racial reality etc.) but there is a reality of who pays politicians, and the issues I mentioned have little to do with anything when it comes to why they want to become a politician. special interests make up the majority of their money they receive. money talks, BS walks .

    Nah, a salad at the Whole Foods salad bar will just go up a little, say from the $20 or so that it costs now to about $75.
