The Impossible Whopper is coming to every Burger King in America next week

Burger King will start selling its meatless Whopper across the United States on August 8, the biggest rollout for Impossible's plant-based product.

The burger chain has been selling the Impossible Whopper, featuring a meatless patty made by Impossible Foods, in a few markets in the United States since April. It first tested the product in St. Louis before announcing in May that it would offer the Impossible Whopper nationally this year.

Interest in plant-based protein has surged as many people try to reduce their meat intake for health or environmental reasons. US retail sales of plant-based foods have grown 11% in the past year, according to a July report from trade group Plant Based Foods Association and the Good Food Institute, a nonprofit that supports plant-based businesses.

    Hey racist dirtbag

    "Quite definitely, they're blinded by sycophantic rage and religious zeal. We're the enemy in their mind, the faceless and terrifying radical left, just as much as China and Mexicans and Drugs.

    Murdoch's propaganda machine has worked splendidly, better than he could've possibly hoped for—as evidenced by Trump, a stupid-as-shit racist conniving uncontrollable right-wing behemoth who rose to power specifically because of the ineptitude of the shitgibbons running Murdochs platform, and with the help of Russians and Gerrymandering and GOP cheating and etc, or whatever.

    But Trump is a catastrophe entirely created, at its root, by Fox News and hungry corporate interests.

    They have stoked so much hatred, fear, and anger that the die-hard Trump apologists would quite literally kill for him.

    Edit; Y'all people that think a Trump-generated Militia is outside the realm of possibility truly don't understand how group-think and cult dynamics work. Sure, maybe one-third of Trump supporters wouldn't literally kill for him, 'they're not evil they're just uneducated', but a couple thousand (10,000+ out of millions?) definitely would jump to his call if he got them to believe the deep state was taking over or the election was being controlled by the Dems.

    You guys think this idea of the Cult of Trump being above reproach simply forget that they actively and fervently support a white nationalist. They will do whatever their mind allows them to justify as necessary to protecting their life and their home.

    I don't even hate these people, I just don't think that violence is outside of their mind's capability to justify considering all of these recent mass shootings at the hands of radicalized white supremacists.

    'They could never do that!' Bullshit, bull to the shit MAX, that's exactly what Germans thought about their own countrymen before the rise of Hitler, and I'm sure other victims of dictators minions thought the same.

    And that's the fucking point. Fox News has been working on radicalizing an entire portion of the population since before most of us were born. The roots have already been laid, and the fact that you think that violence is outside of the realm of possibility makes you the deluded one because people are already dying."
