Actual post from vegancirclejerk ↓r/vegan. It fits just about every stereotype you have about vegans. Also, people from that sub will actively brigade other subreddits that go against veganism. They’re not as bad as r/vegancirclejerk, but they’re still obnoxious.
This is just vegan speak for LITERALLY HITLER for anyone that eats animals. Also, it’s kind of gross that this person compares disabled kids to animals as well.Actual post from vegancirclejerk ↓
I believe factory farming is worse than the Holocaust, slavery, and all other atrocities in history combined. OK, so I know this is a controversial view even among vegans. But hear me out, Humans kill 70 billion nonhuman animals every single year; trillions of beings over decades. Humans castrate, debeak, de-tail billions of beings every single year. We lock them in cages for years until they go insane and scream in misery, rip their babies away, slam them headfirst for being runts. We manhandle infants as we cram them into transport, and many animals suffer broken, shattered bones. They get sent in trucks in all weather conditions, and millions freeze to death or die of heat exhaustion. We boil alive tens of millions of beings alive globally, because of improper stunning and rapid pace of slaughter. Thousands of animals burn alive in cages when CAFOs accidentally catch fire. Millions drowned when Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina. Millions starve, because of conditions in factory farms. We throw the weak and exhausted animals, screaming in terror, into gas chambers. Several years ago, South Korea decided to bury alive 1.5 million pigs, because they were sick. Go watch the video online. This sort of thing (culling) happens all the time.
Today's speciesism is the worst crime in history. Many people think that's an exaggeration, but when you stop and think about it, that's where the logic leads. Species membership is irrelevant. What does that mean? Not that all humans and other animals have equal moral value. But it does mean that sentience and different capacities are what count. That there is no moral difference between nonhuman animals and humans of similar capacity. This means that what we do to billions of beings is morally equivalent to doing the same to disabled humans with the minds of 1 to 3 year-olds-- all for taste pleasure. The vastness of this dwarfs any other atrocity in history. Even though the life of the average concious human possesses greater moral value than, for example, a chicken or cow, the sheer scale of this violence surpasses every past crime. Even if you are an extreme speciesist and believe an animal life is 1/1000th as important as a human life, this is still the worst thing ever. It is like a fresh holocaust every day.
I mean if you have a moral system that quantifies organisms' "value" based on their intelligence a la Peter Singer it's an academically, if not socially defensible comparison. Generally speaking most kiwis do this, and deal with any moral dissonance by devaluing mentally disabled children and adults rather than uplifting non-pet animals, but it's the same idea.This is just vegan speak for LITERALLY HITLER for anyone that eats animals.
