Europe’s Elites: “Beef for me, tainted horse meat and GMOs for thee.”

“Horsemeat-tainted food should be given to the poor, Germany's development minister Dirk Niebel suggested. The opposition dismissed the idea as absurd, but a priest said it should be considered, although horsemeat may contain drug phenylbutazone which may be harmful to people's health. Traces of horse DNA have been found in six tonnes of minced beef and 2,400 packs of lasagne bolognese seized from a company in Italy.

German Minister Niebel said there were 800 million people in the world who were hungry. ‘Even in Germany, unfortunately there are people for whom it is financially tight, even for food. I think that we can't just throw away good food here in Germany.’
The opposition has dismissed the idea and called it ‘absurd’ and an insult to poor people, but Prelate Bernhard Felmberg, the senior representative of the Evangelical Church in Germany, has backed the proposal. ‘We as a Church find the throw-away mentality in our society concerning….
Global elites making decisions (under the dark of night) for the good of the collective yet again and now that they have been exposed, elitists respond by demanding that tainted horse meat be fed to the poor because they are hungry and “we can't just throw away good food.”
SIDEBAR:  For the record, this American prefers her horse for the purposes of riding, petting and racing ONLY.
As far as the horse meat being “good food,” it is tainted with a drug called phenylbutazone.
Phenylbutazone is a NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) effective in treating fever, pain, and inflammation and for good reason; it is no longer marketed in the United States for human consumption due to its toxicity and harmful side effects.
As indicated below by the FDA, phenylbutazone is used by veterinarians to treat horses “not intended for food”:

“Phenylbutazone is known to induce blood dyscrasias, including aplastic anemia, leukopenia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia and deaths. Hypersensitivity reactions of the serum-sickness type have also been reported. In addition, phenylbutazone is a carcinogen, as determined by the National Toxicology Program.
For animals, phenylbutazone is currently approved only for oral and injectable use in dogs and horses. Use in horses is limited to use in horses not intended for food. There are currently no approved uses of phenylbutazone in food-producing animals….”
Europe’s global elites recommend feeding tainted horse meat to the poor because they are hungry and it’s “good food.”  Well, if tainted horse meat is so great why aren’t the global elites ingesting it?  Why are they in such a hurry to shove it into the stomachs of the poor and hungry?
Message to the poor from the global elites, “beef for me, tainted horse meat and GMOs for thee.”
Finally, my bet is that Europe is not the only continent where the poor are ingesting tainted horsemeat.

P.S.:  Something tells me that this is just the beginning.  H/t Zero Hedge, I refer you to Horsemeat found in British supermarkets 'may be donkey'.
