The word “unhinged” has been all the rage lately, as the liberal left continues to show signs of an overarching meltdown among the most vocal in their ranks.
Now, it should be noted that I myself am a huge fan of freedom, (duh), and I absolutely adore the idea that we are free to pursue our own happiness here in America. This, of course, leads to a number of differing paths for we, the sovereign people of these United States, and so long as your happiness doesn’t affect my pursuit of my own inner peace, we’re going to get along just fine.
But when you call me a Nazi because I like to eat meat…well, that’s where things get a little heated.
Actress Natalie Portman compared consuming meat to crimes committed during the Holocaust in a video paying tribute to famed writer and animal welfare rights activist Isaac Bashevis Singer, released Monday by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
Highlighting a passage from Singer’s famed autobiographical novel Shosha, Portman saysin the controversial video,“We do to God’s creatures what the Nazis did to us.”
“Nowadays, many of us speak up for animals, but it wasn’t always like this,” the actress adds. “Decades ago, one man articulated the plight of animals so boldly that the modern world couldn’t ignore him.”
And, for those of you who would rather watch his abhorrent statement actually given life by Portman:
Of course, the irony of this all is lost on many within the liberal left, seeing as Adolf Hitler himself was an avowed vegetarian.
Now, if you’d like to discuss this over dinner, Natalie, I’d be more than willing to meet you at your local steakhouse.
