Comments by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
(NaturalNews) This counterthink cartoon is obviously based on the Rawesome Foods raid that took place on August 3, 2011, where state and federal agents conducted an armed SWAT-style raid on a raw milk farmer, a nutrition educator and a food distribution coordinator. Three people were arrested and sent to jail, then charged with 13 counts including felony conspiracy charges. (http://www.naturalnews.com/033220_Rawesome_Foods_armed_raids.html
The public outrage that emerged in the aftermath of the event has brought new attention to the rights of farmers and the basic human right to be able to choose what kind of food we wish to consume. It has also highlighted the outrageous abuses of government power
that are increasingly wielded against targeted victims who take a stand against unreasonable government regulation.
We covered this raid in great detail at NaturalNews, publishing dozens of articles, interviews and videos on the subject (http://www.naturalnews.com/033258_Rawesome_Foods_videos.html
). In fact, we were the first to break the story globally, and we even helped raise funds for the legal defense of those charged with crimes in the Rawesome Foods raid.
The concept for this cartoon was actually created by a NaturalNews employee who I will simply call "J" (to protect their privacy). Special thanks to "J" for coming up with this great dialog! It was a solid concept so I fleshed out the scene and sent the idea to Dan Berger for illustration. His illustrations just keep getting better, don't they?
