Expressing politeness towards people who torture and murder animals… profoundly devalues the victims and outrageously minimizes their suffering.
When it is someone who calls him or herself a “vegan”, it becomes especially clear that harming animals isn’t such a bad thing. After all, even THE VEGAN isn’t upset about it!
A person with basic decency, a conscience, morals, compassion, and a sense of justice, will naturally and appropriately be outraged by the torture and murder of innocents.
What is deeply disturbing is people who are not outraged by the atrocities humans commit against animals.
If your reaction to oppression, exploitation, slavery, injustice, imprisonment, violence, brutality, rape, kidnapping, torture, and murder is to be nice and polite to the people committing these atrocities… your morality and quality of character are deeply in question.
You wear your supremacism and your prejudice like a crown upon your bigoted head. You are the enemy of animals, the natural world, and our planet. And you are the enemy of justice and compassion.
You want to know who truly deserves to be treated nicely and politely? THE ANIMALS! Be nice and polite to animals. After all, THE ANIMALS being tortured and murdered are the innocent victims here.
Murderers and supremacists are ruining human society and the world. Yet you are actually proud of your supremacism and your politeness towards murderous humans. You are proud of your apathy for any being who doesn’t belong to the species you happen to belong to. Your pride is misplaced… even crazy.
This is a crazy world… where those who torture and murder are treated politely… and those who oppose torture and murder are literally criminals, and at the very least, are expected to always be polite to those who victimize animals.
Animals are thinking, feeling, sentient beings… with needs, desires, friends, loved ones, fears… and a will to live that is equally as strong as yours.
To deny animals life, liberty, and happiness is evil.
I wish I could believe that humans would wake up to the reality of their mistakes and turn over a new leaf to fulfill their potential….
But every day, humans kill that hope in me. They prove over and over again, as they kill billions of innocent animals, that they have no interest in equality or justice for any living being other than their own species.
Sure, a few individuals here and there wake up to the true meaning of veganism and animal liberation. But the vast majority, the masses continue to kill, kill, kill. Most humans want to dominate and destroy animals. Most people are literally proud of it!
People are genuinely proud of the fact that they cause animals to suffer and die. It makes them feel powerful and superior. The human species is obsessed with feeling superior and powerful. Psychopathic serial killers have the same obsession.
Stop devaluing animals by politely accepting and supporting those who hurt them. Stop minimizing the suffering of animals with your politeness towards those who cause the suffering.
If humans were being tortured and murdered… I bet you’d be really angry and outraged.
If you think it is inappropriate to be angry and outraged when animals are being tortured and murdered, then you are clearly a supremacist and you are prejudiced against animals.
Your belief in supremacism over animals and your prejudice against animals do not belong in a movement that is trying to liberate animals from the atrocities humans commit against them.
Insisting on politeness towards murderers is insane.
Would you feel like being polite and nice to someone who tortured and murdered your friend? Or would you be angry and outraged towards someone who tortured and murdered your friend?
It is psychologically and emotionally healthy to feel anger and outrage towards someone who tortures and murders your friend. It is a natural and appropriate reaction to such an atrocity.
But because my “friend” is just an animal, you are offended that I express anger and outrage at someone who tortures and murders her.
It is dishonorable and morally indecent to react with politeness to the torture and murder of an innocent being. Your obsession with being nice and polite to people who torture and murder is a clear sign that you are a supremacist and are prejudice against animals.
The problem is NOT my anger and outrage. The problem is that you think animals are not worthy of outrage on their behalf.
Politeness in the face of a bloodbath is insane.
In human society, torture and murder of animals is considered normal, natural, fun, profitable, and tasty. Humans LOVE torturing and murdering animals because it makes them feel superior and powerful.
Expressing outrage is the only way to demonstrate that some of us see animal torture and murder as something horrific and unacceptable… rather than something normal and natural.
Politeness creates the very clear message that torture and murder of animals is perfectly fine, especially when that politeness comes from a so-called “vegan”.
I am absolutely shocked and profoundly outraged by what humans do to animals. (And you should be too.)
What I find deeply disturbing, is people who are not shocked and outraged by what humans do to animals.
YOU are the sick ones. And with your precious politeness, you devalue the victims and you minimize their suffering and their deaths.
Their suffering and their deaths warrant the most extreme outrage on their behalf.
Widespread, loud, open, unapologetic outrage can definitely help wake up the slumbering masses to the atrocities they wrongly believe are “natural”.
So am I actually saying that we should be rude, mean, judgemental, outraged, and angry towards people who are harming and eating animals?
YES! Goddamit… YES.
Harming animals in any way should be ILLEGAL. Eating animals should be ILLEGAL. Farming animals should be ILLEGAL. Breeding animals should be ILLEGAL. Enslaving animals should be ILLEGAL. Laws are not changed without a whole lot of loud and brutally honest social activism.
But polite vegans argue that people won’t listen to the vegan message unless it is given politely and respectfully. But people aren’t listening to the polite vegan message!!! I believe people don’t listen to the vegan message because it is so easy to dismiss. Why should they listen? No one is upset! “Those crazy vegans just sit around being nice and nonjudgmental while sharing their weird vegan recipes. And they obviously have no problem with us killing and eating animals.”
We should make it so that no one can help but hear the vegan message. It needs to be shoved down their bloody throats. If we shout loud enough, angrily enough, and often enough, THEY WILL HAVE TO LISTEN.
Think about it… you are insisting that we be polite and respectful to people who are being anything but polite and respectful towards animals. Where is your insistence that they be polite and respectful towards animals? Why are you so obsessed with respect towards humans and at the same time so apathetic about respect towards animals? (It’s because you are a human supremacist, a speciesist, and are prejudice against animals.)
You talk about respect and nonjudgment, yet you aren’t bothered by the fact that people are judging and disrespecting animals. You let that go, as if it doesn’t matter at all! Why shout at me for being disrespectful, judgemental, rude, mean… yet you think it is wrong to shout at people for doing those same things (and much worse) to animals? What hypocrisy!
Our shock and horror at the actions of humans against animals NEEDS to be loudly and openly expressed in ALL situations. Unfortunately, doing so is social suicide! And is oftentimes illegal. That’s why it so rarely happens. And that’s why I fear humans will continue destroying the lives of trillions of innocent beings along with destroying the planet Earth.
Polite vegans are supremacists, speciesists, and are prejudice against animals…. and they are destroying any hope the vegan movement has of succeeding in animal liberation.
