Groups and Individuals to Avoid

“False friends are worse than open enemies.”  •  Proverb

 

 

Quote of the Moment“Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.”~ Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788-1860)

 

Over the years, many people have asked me which groups and individuals genuinely support animal liberation.

Sadly, most of the world’s popular “animal” groups, such as the ASPCA and World Wildlife Fund, are nothing but money-hungry corporations that expertly create an animal-friendly image. In reality, they have nothing to do with animal rights as they proudly condone the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), companion-animal breeding, zoo, circus and rodeo industries.

Meanwhile, many animal rights groups and so-called “activists,” such as Mercy For Animals and John Robbins, are now promoting the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign, even though slavery and slaughterhouses cannot co-exist with animal liberation. Remember, there is no such thing as humane slavery and slaughter just as there is no such thing as humane rape and child molestation.

After penning the PETA and Homeless Animals essay in March of 2013, I realized that it was high time to expose the other poseurs. I was especially keen on exposing VegFund for refusing to give me a $10,000 grant to run some vegan print advertisements, even though I needed the money ONLY to help the animals. In their attempt to justify their refusal, they regurgitated the trite excuse that I openly advocate violent action in my essays Empathy, Education, and Violence and More Problems with Pacifism. (You can view the print ad on the About Gary Yourofsky page, and read their email, along with my detailed response, in the VegFund segment below. You can also watch me explain the insanity of pure pacifism during this 2012 interview.) Many other self- indulgent politician-activists have shunned me for the same reason, even though NOT supporting me means they unwittingly support violence! That’s because thousands of meat, dairy and egg-eaters who would see the advertisements and listen to my speech are now continuing along their violent paths unchallenged.

If these narcissists weren’t so obsessed with public relations marketing schemes [see the video just above], they would realize that my tactical opinions on violence and pacifism are irrelevant, especially in the classroom where veganism is my sole message. I never lectured about anything else! And my genuineness was always appreciated by tens of thousands of students, and dozens of professors who continually invited me into their ethics, philosophy, composition, women’s studies, nutrition, public speaking and sociology classes. Professors told me I converted 15 to 20 percent of their classes each time I spoke, while 50 percent of the non-converts drastically reduced their animal-product intake! It’s important to note that I never charged any school, professor or student for a lecture because people should never have to pay to learn the truth. Basically, my tour is a money-taker and not a money-maker, which is why the corporate, fundraising-focused, animal rights community avoids me like the plague.

The following groups and individuals support several forms of animal abuse, especially the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign—or they refuse to help me help the animals. ALWAYS avoid working with them, praising them and financially supporting them at all costs. Instead, work with, praise and support the grassroots groups and activists—such as SASHA Farm Animal Sanctuary [see the video at the top of this page]—who bust their asses for peanuts and never violate an animal’s right to be free!

American Humane Association (AHA)

They have nothing to do with animal rights and unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries. They are expert manipulators who deceive people with their “no animals were harmed” during the filming of this movie tagline. Whether or not AHA is on the set, animals are constantly harmed and killed during filming. The following examples represent a truncated list of injuries and deaths that have recently occurred. In the 2011 movie Water for Elephants, Tai was beaten with a bull hook and shocked with electricity to make her perform. Two horses died during filming of the remake of My Friend Flicka in 2006. A giraffe named Tweet died in 2011 on the set of Zookeeper. And 27 animals died on the set of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit in 2012. Contary to AHA’s claims, they are not policing movie sets, and arresting, fining or even chastising abusers for cruelty to animals. Movie companies simply pay a fee to AHA to use their famous tagline.

Animal Rights Foundation of Florida (ARFF)

They proudly support PETA’s execution of homeless dogs and cats, and the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. Additionally, when I gave my first-ever speech to 30 kids at Pulaski Elementary School in Detroit in 1997, ARFF founder Nanci Alexander refused to donate Houston Rockets “All Animals Have Rights” shirts to the kids in the class. These kids would have happily worn the shirts around their neighborhood, thus spreading the message of compassion to a brand new group of kids. (Alexander’s now ex-husband still owns the NBA team.)

American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)

This $150-million-dollar-a-year fundraising corporation wholeheartedly condemns animal rights. They unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), companion-animal breeding, zoo and rodeo industries. They even gave a $151,000 grant to a bird slaughterhouse in Kansas in 2012.

Mark Bittman

Many people adore this How to Cook Everything author even though he eats meat, dairy and eggs, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. He is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and continually blames animal feed and not animal products (unless it comes from a fast-food establishment) as the main cause of all major diseases! Whether animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass, or in overcrowded warehouses swallowing genetically-engineered corn and soy feed, your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco!

Compassion Over Killing (COK)

They are owned and operated by the $155-million-dollar-a-year HSUS corporation. COK used to be a hardcore, effective and fabulous group before HSUS stepped in.

Rod Coronado

This listing hurts the most because Rod used to be my animal rights hero back in the ’90s when I began. I used to carry a newspaper article about him in my wallet that discussed his imprisonment for burning down a mink research laboratory at Michigan State University. To give credit where credit is due, Rod is literally responsible for almost every piece of undercover footage concerning the fur industry. He used to be a vegan warrior for ALL animals, and was endlessly harassed by our government and imprisoned countless times for his fearless, unwavering activism.

Sadly, Rod is NO longer vegan, and admits this fact OPENLY to anyone who hangs out with him. A professor friend of mine who brought me into his classes 45 times since ‘03 recently invited Rod to his class for a discussion on activism, and Rod confirmed that he was not vegan! I know at least 5 other people who can attest to Rod’s meat, dairy and egg-eating ways. Sadly, Rod is now a typical hypocritical asshole who only cares about SOME animals (he adores cougars, mountain lions and other big cats) while he dines on the murdered corpses of cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, fish and the disgusting things that come out of their bodies. But NO one gets a free pass to harm and kill animals no matter what good they’ve done in the past. Think of it this way: If some guy was loyal to his wife for 20 years, and then had 3 affairs, should his wife look the other way because of 20 years of fidelity?

Rod even takes part in Native hunts as a spiritual guide as he feels closer to his Native heritage than to the oppressed animals who are being murdered by his clan. Meat, dairy and egg-eating Native Americans who hunt and eat animals have as much harmony with nature as pedophile Jerry Sandusky does with kids. Horrifying stories of Lame Deer or Chief Seattle praying over murdered animals displays a primitive and psychotic understanding of compassion and decency. Sadly, Rod and many other Natives refuse to accept this fact because they would rather blindly defend THEIR people/heritage instead of acknowledging the wrongful acts of their ancestors and contemporaries. There is no honor in defending cruelty. I was born Jewish and won’t hesitate to condemn rich, pretentious Jewish women who own fur coats because they stupidly believe it’s a status symbol. Compassion and decency are far more valuable than heritage. The animals and I appreciate Rod’s PRIOR activism but now despise him for his hypocrisy. He has lost his conscience. Fuck him, and his meat, dairy and egg-eating Native friends.

Jonathan Safran Foer

Many people adore this Eating Animals author even though he continues to eat meat, dairy and eggs, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. I appreciate that his book influences others to embrace veganism but am left to conclude that he only wrote it to make money off of people who are becoming more concerned about the evil treatment that animals endure. Sadly, he’s just another opportunistic prick who—as a typical meat, dairy and egg-eater—has yet to locate his conscience.

Gary Francione

This pacifist bully threatens to ostracize people if they support any law-breaking form of activism, or the work of anyone who doesn’t promote pure pacifism. He even de-friends people on Facebook if they post a link to my speech or website. Oddly, Francione claims to support education-based activism first and foremost, which is the only activism I’ve engaged in since the turn of the century. Sadly, he’s just another pathetic pacifist who’s more in love with his “image” than actual activism!

Gentle World / Butterflies Katz

In 2009, Katz contacted me because she wanted to post information about my activism on her site so the message of compassion could be spread further. But a few days after posting it, she deleted it, claiming to be unaware of my positions on violence and pacifism. However, like most politician-activists, she says one thing when people are listening, but states the opposite when no one is watching. On July 31, 2009, at 8:53 p.m., she sent me the following email: “I read your essay on violence having its place. I almost agree with you, but would never publicly ever say what you said about killing a vivisectionist. I ‘secretly’ wish people will get what they deserve like ‘mad cow disease’, etc., but would never put that out for all to see online.” I told her that one day I would expose her deceit.

Jane Goodall

She’s a typical, closed-minded, dairy-addicted vegetarian who even mocked veganism during an interview on The Daily Show in 2009.

Temple Grandin

I am not sure why people worship this meat, dairy and egg-eating slaughterhouse designer! She is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and claims to build compassionate slaughterhouses (huh?) where the cows can’t see the other cows in front of them being stabbed, decapitated and sliced into pieces. What a sweetheart! Maybe after she’s done helping animals in slaughterhouses, she can help produce compassionate child pornography films by having pedophiles wear masks so the kids can’t see who’s fondling and fucking them!

Greenpeace USA

This $350-million-dollar-a year fundraising corporation may be one of the biggest poseurs of all. They wholeheartedly condemn animal rights, and unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg and hunting industries. They aren’t even opposed to whaling, which was the main reason they were formed decades ago.

Jack Hanna

Many people have come to adore this zoologist largely due to his numerous appearances on late-night TV talk shows. But he’s never stemmed his appetite for meat, dairy and eggs, and he unequivocally supports the vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), companion-animal breeding, circus and rodeo industries. Hanna is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and is both a paid and unpaid spokesperson for Sea World and Ringling Brothers.

Heifer International

Using the deceitfully clever public relations gimmick of trying to help hungry people survive, this $115 million-dollar-a-year corporation places a halo around themselves even though they are nothing but modern day slave-traders. They not only condemn animal rights by unequivocally supporting the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), companion-animal breeding, zoo and rodeo industries, they literally “sell” animals to people who want to eat meat, dairy and eggs. This makes them no different than scumbags who abduct women and children and “sell” them to people who enjoy rape. If Heifer truly wants to help hungry people, it is far more peaceful and efficient to feed them beans or grains, which is why the world’s largest feed-the-hungry organization, Food For Life-Global, only uses vegan food!

Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) / Wayne Pacelle

This $155-million-dollar-a-year fundraising corporation unequivocally supports the meat, dairy, egg, vivisection, and companion-animal breeding industries. They also fight endlessly to promote the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. They are also a key sponsor of the nationwide HOOFIN’ IT events where meat, dairy and egg-eaters can dine on different hooved animals at a few restaurants over a three- to four-day period!

Alex Jamieson

This chef, author and ex-wife of documentarian Morgan Spurlock (see his listing below) used to live ethically and peacefully as a vegan for 13 years until she succumbed to the world’s oldest and most powerful addictions: meat, dairy and eggs. She now unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign, and recently made the following outrageous statement: “I believe you can love and care about animal welfare and still consume them.” If meat, dairy and egg-eaters can love and care about the animals they enslave, kill and consume, then pedophiles can certainly love and care about the children they rape, while domestic-abusers can undoubtedly love and care about the women they punch. Continuing with Jamieson’s perverted thought-process, isn’t it true that white male slave-owners showed oodles of love to the female slaves, especially at night when no one else was around? And how about the Nazis’ love and concern for the Jews they killed? After all, millions of Jews were sheltered in those lovely camp-settings, and were given expert medical care by the loving Dr. Josef Mengele. If you ever wonder why I am a proud misanthrope, and why animals remain oppressed by the billions, look no further than Jamieson and the people who think like her.

Derrick Jensen

Many people adore this Endgame author even though he eats meat, dairy and eggs, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. He is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights.

Lierre Keith

This prevaricating author of The Vegetarian Myth claims she was vegan for 20 years. But she’s a liar and an obvious shill for the meat, dairy and egg industries. During an interview on KPFA 94.1 in Berkeley, California, she stated, “I certainly binged on eggs and dairy every chance I got.” You can hear this admission at the 5:34 mark of Australian activist Durian Rider’s exposé of her. She loves to challenge the healthfulness of the vegan diet even though broccoli and bananas have never caused any disease, while animal foods have been indicted as the main cause of every major disease (see the dozens of medical links posted throughout the All About Veganism section). Keith says she never felt right during her on-again off-again experimentation with the veg lifestyle. But weekly binges consisting of dairy and eggs can do that to a person. She also blames plant-based agriculture for being the most destructive environmental practice around. However, addicts who eat animal products love living in a fantasyland and remain oblivious to the fact that half of the world’s crops are set aside annually to feed 60 billion land animals in the meat, dairy and egg industries, and tens of billions of marine animals on fish farms (see the Animal Agriculture and Environmental Destruction webpage). When rainforest destruction, air pollution, water pollution and deforestation are added to the mix, animal agriculture is without a doubt the most evil and environmentally-unfriendly industry that has ever existed.

Jim Mason

Many people adore this Animal Factories author who used to be an effective activist until he chose to support the meat, dairy and egg industries deceitful humane slaughter and slavery campaign, and became obsessed with slaughterhouse designer Temple Grandin (see her listing above). He, along with former hardcore activist Peter Singer, wrote about Grandin in their 2007 book The Ethics of What We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter. They told readers that as long they purchased meat, dairy and eggs from “humane” farms, becoming vegan wasn’t necessary. For the record, the ONLY humane farms that exist are ones that grow fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and legumes. I wonder whether these two idiots are going to collaborate on a book asking the child porn industry to rape kids “humanely” using condoms and lubricants, and provide more play time between rapes, and encourage people to support only these “humane” child porn companies!

Joseph Mercola

Many people adore this shyster doctor whose only goal in life is to sell you shit from air purifiers to vitamins! He eats animal products, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. Mercola is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and continually blames soy, gluten, portion sizes, and animal-feed as the main cause of all major diseases! However, even if you avoid soy and gluten, and never over-eat, but still consume animal products – or if animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass rather than over-crowded warehouses eating genetically-engineered corn and soy feed – your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco! If people, especially doctors, recommend a diet that contains animal products, run from them as quickly as you would run from a swarm of killer bees! If you’re looking for a lifestyle that can benefit your body and conscience, there is ONLY one: VEGANISM! Peruse the Vegan Living section of this site for tips on becoming vegan, and see the All About Veganism section for dozens of medical studies that unequivocally prove that meat, dairy and eggs are the main cause of every major disease.

Mercy For Animals (MFA)

I cannot deny that this group does amazing undercover work. In fact, I used their Conklin Dairy footage at the one hour mark of my 70-minute YouTube speech. However, at that time, I was unaware that they supported the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. MFA also has a bizarre fetish for slaughterhouse-designer Temple Grandin. They also bring in millions of dollars a year in donations. Since millionaires don’t need financial support, refrain from sponsoring them in any way.

Matt Monarch

He’s a typical, selfish raw foodist who unequivocally supports the evil honey industry (see the webpage titled Bees and Honey). He also condones other cruel practices, such as using ground-up deer antlers in hygiene products and shakes, and encourages people to consume cow colostrum and deer placenta. If you are interested in being an ethical raw foodist, check out Freelee, the coolest raw vegan on the planet!

National Audubon Society

They have nothing to do with animal rights and unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries.

National Wildlife Federation

They have nothing to do with animal rights and unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries.

Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

They have nothing to do with animal rights and unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries.

Nature Conservancy

This $500-million-dollar-a-year fundraising corporation has nothing to do with animal rights. They unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries.

Mehmet Oz

Many people adore this simple-minded TV doctor even though he eats animal products, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. He is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and continually blames soy, gluten, portion sizes, and animal-feed as the main cause of all major diseases! However, even if you avoid soy and gluten, and never over-eat, but still consume animal products – or if animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass rather than over-crowded warehouses eating genetically-engineered corn and soy feed – your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco! If people, especially doctors, recommend a diet that contains animal products, run from them as quickly as you would run from a swarm of killer bees! If you’re looking for a lifestyle that can benefit your body and conscience, there is ONLY one: VEGANISM! Peruse the Vegan Living section of this site for tips on becoming vegan, and see the All About Veganism section for dozens of medical studies that unequivocally prove that meat, dairy and eggs are the main cause of every major disease.

PETA / Ingrid Newkirk

Many people cling to the misconception that this group is a paragon of animal rights. Yet this $25-million-dollar-a-year fundraising corporation once proclaimed that slaughterhouse designer Temple Grandin has done more for animals than any other person who has ever lived. Too bad they didn’t mean “more harm”! Newkirk is also a serial killer of dogs and cats (see the PETA and Homeless Animals essay). Moreover, PETA has given the animal rights movement a black eye with its ceaselessly inane, stupid campaigns. One of their recent ones, transparently aimed at pre- and post-pubescent males, was severely taken to task by women’s rights advocates because it depicted a disheveled young woman who had been repeatedly and sexually accosted by her vegan boyfriend, who “has lots of sexual stamina due to his vegan diet”! Moreover, PETA once declared it was a victory for animals when it convinced KFC in Canada to kill chickens in a gas chamber rather than dipping them in an electrified pool of water! “With friends like PETA,” the animals must be screaming, “who needs enemies!”

Michael Pollan

The animal rights movement continues to fawn over the author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma (I didn’t realize that choosing kindness over cruelty was a dilemma) even though he eats meat, dairy and eggs and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. Pollan is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and also appeared in the anti-animal rights documentary Food Inc., where he blamed animal feed and not animal-based foods (unless they come from fast-food establishments) as the main cause of all major diseases! Whether animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass, or in overcrowded warehouses swallowing genetically-engineered corn and soy feed, your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco!

Rainforest Action Network

They have nothing to do with animal rights and unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg and hunting industries as long as they don’t impinge upon rainforests.

Rainforest Alliance

They have nothing to do with animal rights and unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg and hunting industries as long as they don’t impinge upon rainforests.

John Robbins / EarthSave

After losing his money in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, John Robbins lost his mind, too. That’s when this author of Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution changed his tune about veganism. He now unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ humane slavery and slaughter campaign. Many people, including the awesome activist/author Ruby Roth, heard him promote this “humane” bullshit during a few of his speeches in 2012-13.

Eric Schlosser

Much like Michael Pollan, the animal rights movement can’t seem to get enough of this Fast Food Nation author, even though he eats meat, dairy and eggs, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. He is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and continually blames animal feed and not animal-based foods (unless they come from fast-food establishments) as the main cause of all major diseases! Whether animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass, or in overcrowded warehouses swallowing genetically-engineered corn and soy feed, your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco!

Sierra Club

Like Greenpeace, the Sierra Club has, over the years, become quite a poster child for the environment. But while they talk a good game about preserving natural ecosystems and preventing environmental devastation, this $60-million-dollar-a-year fundraising corporation turns a blind eye to the meat, dairy, and egg industries as being the number-one cause of environmental destruction (see the page titled Animal Agriculture and Environmental Destruction). Even worse, they continue to turn a blind eye even as they are being called out for their hypocrisy! Prior to 2014, the ADAPTT website published in this section a link to a page on the Sierra Club website showing clearly that the Sierra Club condones meat production and grazing of cows. That page has since been taken down. Why? Because in 2014 the movie Cowspiracy showed a segment in which the club’s Deputy Executive Director, Bruce Hamilton, “fumbled, mumbled and, well, choked in response to a question about the huge impact of animal agriculture on the environment.”

In response to this obvious public-relations disaster, the Sierra Club tried to walk back its position on animal agriculture, and even admitted that Cowspiracy was a fiasco for them. Curiously, they replaced the page that they took down with this PDF document that they’ve buried deep within their website, presumably so that no one could find it easily. The new position paper reveals that the Sierra Club STILL does not object in any way to raising animals for food; their position appears to be “just do a little less of it, and do it ‘more sustainably.’ ” (See especially the sections titled Climate Change and Agriculture on page 2, and Livestock Production and Grazing on pages 4 and 5.)

Make no mistake—in addition to condoning the imprisoning, enslaving and murdering of animals for food, the Sierra Club also supports the vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries, and actively recruits hunters to fill its ranks. So the next time this organization sends you another money-grubbing email, or drops some paper junk in your snail-mail box (because isn’t grubbing for money what ANY of these big corporations does nowadays?), just tell them that until they issue a position paper in which they renounce ALL use, misuse and abuse of animals for ANY reason, it’s “no dice!”

Peter Singer

Many people adore this Animal Liberation author who used to be an effective activist until he chose to support the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slaughter and slavery campaign, and became obsessed with slaughterhouse designer Temple Grandin (see her listing above). He, along with former hardcore activist Jim Mason, wrote about Grandin in their 2007 book The Ethics of What We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter. They told readers that as long they purchased meat, dairy and eggs from “humane” farms, becoming vegan isn’t necessary. For the record, the ONLY humane farms that exist are ones that grow fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and legumes. I wonder whether these two idiots are going to collaborate on a book asking the child porn industry to rape kids “humanely” using condoms and lubricants, and provide more play time between rapes, and encourage people to support only these “humane” child porn companies!

Morgan Spurlock

Many people worship this Super Size Me documentarian even though he eats meat, dairy and eggs, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. Spurlock is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and continually blames animal feed and not animal-based foods (unless they come from fast-food establishments) as the main cause of all major diseases! Whether animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass, or in overcrowded warehouses swallowing genetically-engineered corn and soy feed, your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco!

Vegan Outreach

This vegetarian outreach group (see the Hitler and Vegetarianism essay to understand why vegetarianism is just as evil as meat-eating) stopped promoting veganism in the mid ‘00s when it basically created the “bee-gan” movement by proudly endorsing the exploitation of bees and the consumption of honey! Its president, Jack Norris, doesn’t even mind if “vegans” want to eat cheese! Both positions are the antitheses of veganism, and do nothing to alleviate the massive amounts of suffering that humans intentionally inflict on bees and cows! I am not sure why the countless groups/people listed on this page do whatever they can to comfort the victimizer, worship at the altar of HUMANS and make excuses to exploit certain animals. If they branched out into other social justice arenas, such as trying to stop domestic abuse, I wonder: Would they tell guys that it’s okay to slap their wives once a week instead of punching them every other day? Please read the Bees and Honey and Dairy essays on this site for infallible information on how bees and cows, along with their offspring, are abused and killed by the honey and dairy industries. The word “vegan” needs to be removed from this group’s name immediately!

The Vegan Society

This group should have its name revoked as it continually condemns my VEGAN activism and defames me by spreading the outrageous lie that I condone rape. It even harasses people and organizations who share my speeches, interviews and essays even though those people and organizations are ONLY trying to help the animals, not make me famous or rich. The Society also scares the living daylights out of anyone interested in veganism with false claims about B12 deficiencies in vegans. (If 39 percent of Americans have a B12 deficiency yet only one percent of the population is vegan, how can this be a vegan issue?) You should avoid this group at all costs.

VegFund

On Thursday, July 4, 2013 at 5:47 p.m. I received the following email from meritawards@vegfund.org after applying for a $10,000 grant to run vegan print advertisements: “Thank you for all the work that you do to promote veganism. The impact that you’ve had in Israel and on college campuses around the nation is truly phenomenal, and we appreciate all the time and energy you put into your activism. Unfortunately, we are unable to grant this funding request. Our guidelines prohibit us from financially supporting projects that condone or encourage violence. There is messaging which crosses that line on some pages of the adaptt.org website to which the radio and print ads direct listeners and readers. While we find occasion to regret not being able to fund all of the hundreds of requests that come our way, we wish you all success in your efforts to promote ethical veganism.”

Here’s my reply: “I am curious, did you see the story about the 2-year-old girl who was taken hostage at a Walmart in Oklahoma the other day (http://www.today.com/news/mom-tot-taken-hostage-wal-mart-i-begged-her-life-6C10523331)? The lunatic was holding a blade to her neck when one of the cops shot him in the face to end the standoff. Am I to understand that VegFund did NOT support the retaliatory violence that saved that little girl’s life? I’ll be using this case as an example of how retaliatory violence—in some cases—can be the only way to stop evil in its tracks. What you’ve just done is place yourself between the proverbial rock-and-a-hard-place because if you tell me that you did NOT support the cop’s response, I will be alerting 1000s of activists around the world that you wanted that little girl to die. However, if you respond that you were in favor of the cop’s response, I will be letting those 1000s of people know that you are hypocrites and speciesists because you do NOT support me, someone who stops violence against animals, but you support violence as long as the people committing the violence are saving human lives.

In other words, you psychotically believe it’s okay to kill a human to save a 2-year-old girl, but it’s not okay to kill a human to save a cow, pig, chicken, turkey or fish. Exactly who’s the perpetrator of violence? Me or you? And just think, to avoid this hassle, all you had to do was agree to help me expose violence against animals by giving me a measly 10K grant. It would have been the CORRECT thing to do. It’s funny how everyone claims to despise politicians but then all they ever do is imitate them, and want me to imitate them, too. By the way, I know for a fact that you support PETA, even though they murder 1000s of homeless dogs and cats each year. You also support HSUS, even though they support the murderous vivisection industry. PETA and HSUS also support the violent HUMANE SLAVERY & SLAUGHTER movement, which is the epitome of cruelty, oppression and commodification, and always results in the murder of innocent beings. So exactly who is the perpetrator of violence? Me or you?

Here’s what you fail to grasp: NOT supporting me means you are supporting and condoning violence because you are allowing the true perpetrators of violence—meat, dairy and egg-eaters—to continue along their violent paths unchallenged. My speech converts most people to the veg lifestyle in 70 minutes, plain and simple. But you obviously you don’t give a shit about results, do you? You are only concerned with p.r., politics and ineffective marketing schemes to try and trick people into understanding animal rights. It’s amazing that 99 percent of AR folks embrace slaughterhouse architect Temple Grandin, and her meat, dairy and egg-eating compatriots Michael Pollan, Eric Schlosser, and Morgan Spurlock, even though they’re responsible for harming animals on a daily basis. Yet, whenever I show up, everyone runs for cover, even though I am responsible for saving the lives of millions of animals by converting tens of thousands of people to the veg lifestyle. You should learn the truth about the evils of pacifist politics before shunning those who actually do something, by reading my WHAT’S WRONG WITH VIOLENCE [now retitled Empathy, Education, and Violence: A Time for Everything] and MORE PROBLEMS WITH PACIFISM essays with an open mind.”

The Venus Project

The Venus Project is a project of hate, discrimination and deceit. They are simple-minded, liberal speciesists who refuse to open up their circle of compassion to the animal kingdom as they unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries. They talk ad nauseam about sustainability but continue to embrace animal agriculture even though it’s the number-one cause of environmental destruction. They oppose war but are the main soldiers in the world’s bloodiest and deadliest offensive: The Animal Holocaust. They claim to care about hunger but would rather feed 50 percent of the world’s crops to the 60 billion land animals and tens of billions of marine animals on fish farms killed annually instead of using those crops to feed 7.5 billion people. Every two to three seconds some human dies from starvation, but chickens and pigs never miss a meal. Meat, dairy and egg-eating is the worst form of human AND animal abuse.

Alice Walker

Since this author of The Color Purple champions civil and women’s rights issues, one would assume she has a clear understanding of right and wrong, and would condemn the world’s cruelest -ism: SPECIESISM! However, in the January 1, 2008 edition of The Vegetarian Times, Walker told reporter Nicole Gregory: “I do eat fish and eggs . . . I love a light heart. And when I know I’m causing suffering, I feel the heaviness of it. It’s a physical pain. So it’s self-interest that I don’t want to cause harm. If I’m eating food I know was a creature in a cage, it brings up memories of segregation and the stories from my ancestors, of being in captivity and denied their personalities, their true beings. Animals were not made for us, or our use. They have their own use, which is just being who they are.” Earth to Alice, are you fucking cognizant? Whether animals live in a grassy field or a filthy cage, commodifying animals for their body parts—and the things that come out of their bodies—and murdering animals in a slaughterhouse IS THE CAUSE of THEIR suffering. Furthermore, animals are NOT food. Maybe Walker could locate her conscience if she’d stop referring to animals as “food.” And maybe one day, when she applies the same logic she uses to condemn sexism and racism, she can be consistent with her values, and live ethically, and peacefully, as a vegan.

Andrew Weil

Many people adore this simple-minded TV doctor even though he eats animal products, and unequivocally supports the meat, dairy and egg industries’ deceitful humane slavery and slaughter campaign. He is wholeheartedly opposed to animal rights, and continually blames soy, gluten, portion sizes, and animal-feed as the main cause of all major diseases! However, even if you avoid soy and gluten, and never over-eat, but still consume animal products – or if animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass rather than over-crowded warehouses eating genetically-engineered corn and soy feed – your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco! If people, especially doctors, recommend a diet that contains animal products, run from them as quickly as you would run from a swarm of killer bees! If you’re looking for a lifestyle that can benefit your body and conscience, there is ONLY one: VEGANISM! Peruse the Vegan Living section of this site for tips on becoming vegan, and see the All About Veganism section for dozens of medical studies that unequivocally prove that meat, dairy and eggs are the main cause of every major disease.

Weston Price Foundation

This is just another group of simple-minded meat, dairy and egg addicts who want to blame animal feed and not animal products (unless it comes from a fast-food establishment) as the main cause of all major diseases! Whether animals reside on spacious meadows eating pesticide-free grass, or in overcrowded warehouses swallowing genetically-engineered corn and soy feed, your risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, kidney ailments, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses remains the same. There’s no such thing as healthy meat, dairy and eggs, just as there’s no such thing as healthy cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco! And besides portion sizes, the Paleo Diet is no different from Atkins, Jenny Craig, and The Zone Diet, which are all versions of the standard meat, dairy or egg-based diets of nearly every person on this planet. If it contains animal products, then the diet is essentially the same as any other animal-based diet! If you’re looking for something different, and ethical, and that can benefit your health for your entire life, you might want to peruse this website for some information on veganism.

David “Avocado” Wolfe

This self-proclaimed king of the raw food movement is a typical, selfish raw foodist who unequivocally supports the evil honey industry (see the webpage titled Bees and Honey). He also condones other cruel practices, such as using ground-up deer antlers in hygiene products and shakes, and encourages people to consume cow colostrum and deer placenta. If you are interested in being an ethical raw foodist, check out Freelee, the coolest raw vegan on the planet.

Philip Wollen / The Kindness Trust

This former Citibank executive from Australia sent me an email in late 2010 telling me how much he loved my vegan lecture. He even attached a news article about being a billionaire philanthropist which claimed he was giving away his fortune to help animals! Coincidentally, my sponsor from 2008-10 (a meat, dairy and egg-eater from California) had just informed me that he was ending his financial support so I was in desperate need of someone to cover my traveling expenses (airfare, hotels, rental cars, gas, tolls, food, etc.), as well as my personal living expenses (I rent a meager but lovely 830 square-foot home near the Detroit border for $850 a month). Since the Universe has always provided for me, I thought Philip would save the day. But he shockingly refused.

I pleaded with him a few more times and explained that I only needed around $15,000 to keep the tour going without interruption, and $64,000 for the entire year. He claimed that all of his money was tied up. The man is a billionaire! All of his money, especially a measly 64K, couldn’t be tied up under any circumstance. Wollen’s refusal to help forced me to cancel the first THREE weeks of the 2011 tour, meaning hundreds of students didn’t hear the vegan message because of WOLLEN’s sissified political fear of being associated with me, even though not supporting me when you HAVE the financial capability to do so, means you are supporting the abusers as thousands of meat, dairy and egg-eaters—who would’ve seen my speech—now continue along their violent paths unchallenged.

I begged and pleaded for help a few more times but he wouldn’t budge, and even had his attorney send me an email saying that Philip was in a coma after a horrible car accident! I was shocked, sent my condolences and—after a wonderful activist from Minnesota found me a new sponsor—I moved on.

However, a few months later I saw Wollen in an interview and realized that this prick and his shyster lawyer pulled a fast one on me. Since I’m involved in enough battles already, I let it go and simply cursed his existence. Then, on June 1, 2013, at 6:14 a.m., after three years of silence, I received another email from Wollen saying how proud he was of the vegan revolution that I sparked in Israel. He said, “You are a man of rare gifts, and I know that when the book of compassion to all living beings is finally written, your fingerprints will be on every page.” I inquired whether he would assist me in the future as I never know when current sponsors will pull funding, but he still refused to help. I was running radio advertisements that year and could’ve aired many more with a generous contribution from him, too. I then asked him to at least make a donation to the grassroots SASHA Farm animal sanctuary, for which I’ve been volunteering since 1996.

He refused, so I decided to research his Kindness Trust foundation and discovered that they present an annual $25,000 award to effective activists. Surely, I should’ve been up for that award. However, the 2012 winner was millionaire, non-activist David Attenborough, a staunch meat, dairy and egg-eater who doesn’t speak for the animals at all. He simply narrates nature shows which have NOTHING to do with animal rights. Why would Wollen give an award to an outspoken abuser of animals who also happens to be worth a cool $35 million? The 2009 award recipient was millionaire primatologist Jane Goodall, who is definitely a friend to primates but couldn’t give a shit about the majority of other animals (see the Goodall “mocked veganism” link above). Two other millionaires also received the award: Dr. Ian Gawler and T. Colin Campbell. Why does Wollen insist on giving millionaires financial support when financially-crippled grass-roots activists are struggling to get by? “With friends like Wollen,” the animals must be screaming, “who needs enemies!”

For the record, no one is ever REQUIRED to donate funds, but when you flaunt your wealth in my face, as many have done, imply that you would support my activism if it weren’t for my position on violence, and force me to cancel three weeks of lectures because of this political bullshit, then you are a SUPREME DICKHEAD who is WORSE than any animal abuser! If I am indeed in the “book of compassion” as Wollen claims, I hope this section condemning and exposing him appears next to an asterisk underneath my bio!

World Wildlife Fund (WWF)

This $180-million-dollar-a-year fundraising corporation has nothing to do with animal rights. They unequivocally support the meat, dairy, egg, hunting, vivisection, animal-skin (clothing), zoo, circus and rodeo industries.

Thank you www.adaptt.org for calling out these groups and people for their hyprocry.
