A call for violence against so-called “trophy” hunters

I cannot tell you all how disgruntled I am at many of my nonvegan friends that, after 4 years of bombardment with my posts on veganism and nonhuman animal rights, continue to dehumanize and call for violence against so-called “trophy” hunters. You consider yourselves somehow morally “better” than them, yet you enjoy harming other nonhuman animals for pleasure at least as much as Walter James Palmer enjoys harming lions for pleasure. If you need a crash course in basic nonhuman animal ethics, seek out your nearest vegan friend for guidance on how not to be a flippin’ hypocrite with respect to your views on nonhuman animals. Thank you, and as always, live vegan.

This flag symbolized racism and slavery and the fight to keep it alive in America

This flag symbolized racism and slavery and the fight to keep it alive in America. The Confederate States of America fell for good reason, and General Lee surrendered to Grant at the Appomattox court house on April 9, 1865. That this flag still flies all over places within our free nation is a dishonor to all who fought and died for that freedom and to free all slaves and end slavery in America forever. That this flag flew at state capitals is an insult to all African Americans and any people anywhere in the world that are enslaved. Slavery is a horrific human tragedy and one that should be eradicated from the planet but never ever forgotten. Those that fly the rebel flag (or any flag which represents slavery or opression) are traitors to our nation, to the world, to freedom, and are enemies of humanity.
