You know what’s so wonderful about true freedom: It is not only liberating in the sense of allowing you to do what you will, but it’s mentally liberating as well.
When all are free to pursue happiness, conflicts tend to melt away. A smile and a nod to your neighbor is often nothing less than a little check-in. “Howdy. How are you cooking those steaks? Well done? Well, this conversation is over”.
We are all our own small, private states at that point; sovereign little communities of family, learning from one another and working to make all that’s wrong in the world right.
Of course, when someone comes to our home and demands that we cook our steak well done, it should be our right to stand up and say, “No sir, I will not have that sort of nonsense in my home”.
So, when Peta and their petulant, progressive punks start wreaking havoc with small town butchers in Great Britain, it is our duty as freedom fighters to bring attention to their nonsense.
Attacks on small businesses by vegan activists are on the rise, according to the Countryside Alliance.
Death threats, stoked by social media and encouraged by international groups of activists, have caused butchers and farmers to “live in fear.”
Marlow Butchers, in, Ashford, Kent, was targeted earlier this month by activists who daubed red paint on the doors and windows of the shop.Since then, the business has been subjected to online abuse.
Wayne Marlow, who runs the business with his father and brother, told Kent Online: “On the internet it has been very threatening.
“It has got ridiculous – activists from as far away as Australia are getting involved.
These violent and vitriolic vegans simply don’t care to eat meat, and they’ve weaponized their little club in order to brow beat supposedly sovereign Britons into submission. This is akin to “cat people” going around poisoning neighborhood dogs. It is precisely the most ludicrous expression of personal preference that we’ve perhaps ever seen.
Luckily, the authorities are on it.
Tim Bonner, Chief Executive of the Countryside Alliance told The Telegraph: “There’s been an escalation of attacks on butchers, markets, and even abattoirs and it’s an extension of animal rights campaigns we have seen around other areas, using the same tactics including online abuse.
“They usually attack small independent businesses rather than taking on the big boys – it’s quite cowardly.”
He said that international groups coordinate attacks which take place in the UK, explaining: “”Social media has been a catlalyst for much of this campaigning, both in terms of bringing together international groups and if they find the right independent business it does bring a lot of pressure on family businesses and farmers.”
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some hot dogs on a grill to attend to.
