NAALPO Press Release
January 9, 2012

Received anonymously:

at about 3:40 am on sunday, january 8th, 14 cattle trucks caught fire at the harris feeding company in coalinga, ca. containers of accelerant were placed beneath a row of 14 trucks with 4 digital timers used to light 4 of the containers and kerosene-soaked rope carrying the fire to the other 10 (a tactic adapted from Home Alone 2 [if you're going to try this make sure to use kerosene, gasoline dries to quickly]). we weren’t sure how well this was going to work, so we waited until there was news reports before writing this. we were extremely pleased to see that all 14 trucks “were a total loss” with some being “completely melted to the ground.”

we’re not going to use this space to expound upon the horrors and injustices of factory farming. there is more than enough armchair-activists and those of passive politics who are more than willing to do that (anything to keep from getting their hands dirty). we, the unsilent minority (the 1%, if you will), choose a more direct form of action.

we’re not delusional enough to believe that this action will shut down the harris feeding company, let alone have any effect on factory farming as a whole. but we maintain that this type of action still has worth, if not solely for the participant’s peace of mind, then to show that despite guards, a constant worker presence, and razorwire fence, the enemy is still vulnerable.

finally, to all those who fantasize and romanticize about direct action yet remain on the fence: there is a lot of stuff that needs to be destroyed and we can’t count on spontaneous combustion and careless welders to do all the work.

until next time…

[Press Office note: Harris Ranch Beef Company is California's largest fed cattle "processor" producing nearly 200 million pounds of beef a year. The largest cattle feeder on the West Coast and 14th largest nationally encompasses a 100,000-head feed lot. At any given time there will normally be between 70-100,000 head of cattle on feed. Harris Feeding Company feeds about 1/3 of all the cows murdered in California. Cows spend the last days of their short, brutal lives standing in their own waste, until hauled off to have their throats slit and their bodies sliced into small pieces for human consumption.

    ABSOLUTELY FUCKING FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Way to go.

  3. Trashcarcass Says:

    I was thrilled to click on this story! I fully support ALF and their efforts! Unfortunately, I was then boldly told that I am a mere “arm chair activist”… Sorry! I am not worthy… I only live my life day to day saving dogs, posting for lost animals, reuniting them with their families, or finding them new ones. I only take in strays and work 12-14 hour shifts with animals and try to feed the 4 I have (and the random stray I take in… Saved 8 in the last 3 years. Pathetic, I know). I have only converted 5 people to vegetarian and/or veganism with my posts. And I have not saved nearly as many animals by educating people and training dogs and abstaining from meat and dairy. I also haven’t made as big a difference by getting my friends to adopt and not shop and volunteering at my local shelter. And me and my mother made no difference by meeting with City Council over the pet limit (My mom has 17 cats and 2 dogs) and trying to get people to spay and neuter…Please forgive me. Good luck to you, oh righteous ones! I wish you well.

  4. lyn Says:

    hi people like you are the unsung heroes, and are the best, without you there would be a lot more animals suffering, we love you and I will say we because I know a lot people who believe in what you do.

    I have written to politicians, posted some really horrible pics argued with people converted people.
    i am an armchair activist and will at any time knowledge, that what you do far out weighs what I do.

    But I do make people aware of what you are fighting against. and to be honest is was an armchair activist that made me aware of factory farming and what you have done here. The media are to gagged to do either, as soon as I read what had happen I knew what it you was about, before being “educated” I would have jumped to the wrong conclusions.

    you are absolutely brilliant, will share and look our for more ((((: I really can’t say how much I admire you it is lots……….

    I am sharing, to let everyone know.

  5. Ann Parkes Says:

    Brilliant work in a War the Bastards can never win!!

    People are evolving, outlooks are changing. But in the meantime, Activists will continue the onslaught in every way possible.

    DIRECT ACTION – AIMED AT THE CORRUPT, GREEDY, DISPASSIONATE SUB-SPECIES WHO CONTINUE THEIR BLOODY MARCH …… THEY WILL BE HALTED!

    Good job, you accomplished absolutely nothing with your cowardly act. You should be proud of being a domestic terrorist.

  8. Stephanie gorilly girl Says:

    Well done my friends well done indeed….

  9. Mavis Petrie Says:

    Trashcarcass has a very valid point. I am in a similar situation, alone in the north of Scotland helping horses, dogs, cats, pigs, cows and any other animal or bird that comes my way. I am 71 but still quite fit and active. Tell me what I can do more and I will do my best but please do not be so scathing about those who do all they can for animals in any way they can. We cope with many heartaches and do not sit comfortably even if we have a minute to be in our armchairs.
    Good luck in all you are doing.

  10. LiddyARA Says:

    Burn Baby Burn!

  11. Alison Says:

    MORE POWER TO YOU!!!!! SADLY IT WON’T SHUT THEM DOWN :(

  12. Julia Says:

    This is ridiculous do people not understand that there are millions of people in the united states and they have to eat. If it werent for Harris Beef there would be a major lack of meat and it would be so wxpensive normal people couldnt afford to buy it. They are cattle and there purpose is to be used for food. They are not pets like dogs and cats. I love my animals too but have a little common sense people. You think that killing cattle is worse then burning peoples property. They also do not slit their throats, get your facts straight.

  13. Mary-Anne Says:

    While I applaud your work, I think you’re comment about all the “armchair activists” was uncalled for. Without listing all that I personally do, there are many, many people like myself who do selfless work that might never make the news, and who are never recognized outside their own peers. We are all doing what we can, all these efforts no matter how big or how small do matter, they do add up to change, we are not doing this for the glory, we need to stand together and not tear each other done with hasty hurtful comments like that. Apology accepted!

  14. brenda Says:

    good for you- that place is hell on earth for those cows – at least they got a message now

  15. Mr. Kaczynski Says:

    @Mary-Anne -> Another crybaby making excuses. Again, if you ain’t out doing it, you ain’t doing it–’nuff said. No one directly called you an armchair activist so you admitted it just by stating you were offended because you obviously ARE an armchair activist. You were offended because you were called out–’nuff said. I’m so sick of you baby, do-nothing “activists” who should be called slacktivists. hahaha

  16. Mr. Kaczynski Says:

    @Trashcarcass -> No one “boldy told” you that you were a mere armchair-activist. You did it yourself, idi0t! haha So quit with the excuses and justifications. If you’re not out doing it, you ain’t doing it–’nuff said. And before you say “Well what about you?” I’ve done a helluva lot more than you ever will but I’m not stupid enough to post about it publicly on the Internet. It’s called security culture for a reason: security.resist.ca/personal/securebooklet.pdf

    @lyn -> Thank you for admitting you are an armchair-activist. You do what you can and if you don’t wish to do more, then so be it. This is a hundred fold better than making excuses like Trashcarcass.

    For you REAL activists: if you want to check out other groups who not only talk the talk but walk the walk, go to http://guerrillanews.wordpress.com/ They blow sh1t up, send mail bombs like Kaczynski, and even assassinate people–f0ck yeah!

    Remember, we all have to fight back, not just some of us!

    “Every individual who wants to save his humanity—and, indeed his skin—had better begin thinking dangerous thoughts about sabotage, resistance, rebellion, and the fraternity of all men [and women] everywhere.”—Dwight MacDonald

  17. Mike Says:

    What a bunch of idiots. Besides being against the law, do you really applaud the destruction of property in this country. Use your voices, use your vote – that is how this country works. Setting fires against a company that is operating legally and employing people is a criminal act and those that did it should be punished to the full extent of the law. Would your opinions be the same if a vegan firefighter died putting out that fire. Or if a innocent homeless person had been sleeping on one of those trailers. Obviously you folks have never been hungry because like a bunch of spoiled children you are only concerned with your agendas, no concern about other people or the greater good. God Bless the farmers that provide for this country and this world!

  18. Annie Says:

    My kinda style!!!! Great Job!!

  19. Shelly Says:

    Due to being on permanent disability, I wish I could be on the front lines more, but alas since I can’t I support those who can. As a proud armchair activist I try everyday to spread the news, petitions, and such with the rest of the world.
    Stay safe and stay strong.

  20. ihatepeta69 Says:

    The only thing you stupid “activists” did was cause an insurance claim, that will be paid in full by the middle class of America, thus raising the prices of beef along with every other US made product at your local grocery store. I hope you all burn in hell, stupid, violent terrorists are what you are. If you had a problem, you should have went to this company’s owners and let him stomp your ass instead of your cowardly act done at 4 am when no one is around. Pussies

  21. Jim Says:

    One of the perps commented, “If it takes blowing up someone’s property to give me a sense of moral depth, then I’ll do it. Anything to stop the self-loathing, the rage, the meaninglessness, the emptiness. Plus, it makes me cool amongst a group of people and I’ve always wanted that.”

  22. Brittany Says:

    Mike, get your facts straight. Using our voices has NOT helped. What about the promises that OBAMA made to the animal lovers in this country and then allowed horse slaughter to be re-introduced, Appeasing the pork industry by changing the name SWINE flu to H1N1….WHILE PEOPLE WERE DYING, he WAS PROTECTING THE PORK INDUSTRY! Allowing Salazar to continue with the wild horse roundups which ARE ILLEGAL……If Obama can break the law to kill animals, why can’t citizens break laws to save them????? As far as the farmers go, show me a place where there are REAL FARMERS. NOT the big agribusiness that controls the talking heads in DC. You have to do your research on who is behind the stampedes….cattle farmers……grazing permits…….land issues…….there those of you who are followers and then there are those who respect LIFE enough to do their research. and…..Julia, they do slit their throats and you are just one of the millions of mindless brainwashed followers who think that the USDA nutritional pyramid was actually created for everyone to be healthy. HUMANS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO EAT MEAT. Do your research please.

  23. Negotiation Is Over Says:

    thank you so much betsy,

    my main campaign is actually against the university of florida in gainesville, not fau in south florida

    but they’re all related

    in any event, we could not do what we do without your support

    so you are a vital part of everything we do up here

    hope to see you soon :)

  24. Brett Says:

    Brittany how are humans not meant to eat meat? Why do we have teeth that are designed to tear and chew it and enzymes in our digestive systems made to break it down to absorbable amino acids? I can understand if eating meat is against your principles, if you think it’s wrong, but don’t lie and tell people humans aren’t supposed to eat it. I also support your right to live a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, and to promote that lifestyle within the law. However, when you start infringing on other peoples’ rights to push your agenda, it acts in opposition to your goal and you become a frightening fringe movement rather than a reasonable force for action. The agribusinesses that you claim run our government didn’t gain their power by blowing up anyone else’s property, so maybe you should take a page from their book instead of adapting scenes from kids movies into terrorist acts.

  25. Ron Pauler Says:

    @Brett

    You are so misinformed and delusional that it’s not even funny–it’s pathetic! Here are the facts about meat:

    1) Eskimos and natives who eat primarily meat have a life expectancy of 30-40 years because the human body was not designed to eat meat; the human body was designed to eat veggies. Meat can be digested by the human body, of course, but it’s very difficult, not to mention toxic (antiobiotics, hormones, etc.). It takes 1 day to fully digest fruits & vegetables but almost 1 week to fully digest meat.

    2) Look at your teeth: herbivore teeth. You were meant to eat primarily veggies but meat only as a last resort. Plus, you can’t eat mammal meat raw like wolves or lions (who have sharp teeth unlike us), which further proves your body was not designed to eat meat. Moreover, did you know that cows are fed meat, too? They are fed ground-up meat from dead cows as well as other animals because it’s so cheap. So cows can digest meat and break it down, too, but that doesn’t mean cows were meant to eat meat–duh! hahaha

    3) The biggest animals in the world are bulls, oxen, rhinoceroses, and giraffes, who eat only veggies, not meat. Meat is not necessary for big muscles. For example, UFC fighter and former Strikeforce champion Jake Shields has never eaten meat and he’s a big muscular motherf*cker. Also, one of the strongest men in the world is a vegetarian: http://www.mfablog.org/2011/08/vegetarian-crowned-germanys-strongest-man.html

    4) 70% of the protein your body needs is recycled by your body; in fact, your body is only comprised of 15% protein. Soybeans and other legumes have been proven to contain over twice as much protein as beef.

    Now to your naive, ignorant quote: “…our government didn’t gain their power by blowing up anyone else’s property…”
    My response: Really? Are you really serious? Have you never heard of the Native Indians who were here FIRST before they were murdered, slaughtered and blown up with cannons for their PROPERTY by the U.S. government? And what the hell do you think is going on in Iraq? Hussein is gone and there are no WMDs but the U.S. is still there “blowing up the Iraqi people’s property” for their precious oil. The U.S. has military bases in almost 200 countries for a good reason: stealing resources. The U.S. kills, murders, and steals resources from countries by blowing them up with bombs, missiles, and nukes (America is the only country to ever use nukes in war). Please do your research before you say stupid sh1t again! Better yet, STFU!

  26. Ron Pauler Says:

    @Mr. Kaczynski

    Thanks for the site, bro! Will check it out!

    YEA good..this is a hell for animals.. graet job!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Chel Says:

    :) Bringin it home.
    This just made my night.

  29. carol santos Says:

    This is just plain sick. just how was it better for the cows to die in this manner, penned in trucks on fire with no where to go?! I am ill over this story, truly. And I agree with Brett about the eating meat. Do not push your vegetarian agenda on me! Glad you like your diet, but your so-called “facts” and actions do not induce me to change to vegan. And burning those trucks was just NOT right, no matter how you try to spin it!

  30. Chris Says:

    Lol omg Carol,do u really think animal activists would set fire to trucks with cows in them???And ok,we all know how stupid and cruel the meat industry is,but i dont think even them would have cows in trucks at 4am…but then again thats just mho *sarcasm*
    Regarding pushing agendas,dont u think its us vegans who constantly have “your choices” stuffed down our throats??!!

  31. C Says:

    To: Ron Pauler

    Being an Animal Scientist, I do have some knowledge on this topic.

    1. Meat does not take a week to digest! Depending upon your metabolism, it normally takes 24-72 hours. Raw vegetable, berries, and nuts take that long to digest. Some such as corn never digest and come out whole. Does that mean that humans were not meant to eat corn?

    2. Humans are not herbivores nor carnivores! We are omnivores, determined not only by our teeth, but also our jaws, salivary glands, intestines, and cells types. I f we were meant to only eat plants then our digestive systems would be much different. We do not have rumens to ferment the plant cellulose.

    3. You mentioned large animals such as the giraffe, rhino, bulls, and oxen. Amazing that the bulls, oxen and giraffes are ruminants and rhinos and other ungulates (including horses, zebras) have modified digestive systems to allow for digestion of plants. Herbivores spend much of their time feeding because so much undigested food passes through that they need to continually eat, thus we have grazers and browsers.

    4. I do not know where you came up with your numbers, but soybeans typically have 38% versus beef, chicken, and fish have 25%. Though isoflavones in soy have been shown to prevent some cancers, it has also proven to cause other cancers. Phytoestrogens are hormones and if too much is consumed can cause problems. Funny how vegetarians are concerned about residual hormones in meat yet they consume pure hormones from plants!

    I do not care if one chooses to be vegetarian/vegan, but do not make decisions for other intelligent humans. If all facts are known, the best human diet contains both plants and meat in moderation. As a Christian, I believe the words in the Bible that God gave us dominion over animals to EAT!!!

    I think the act of burning other’s property is criminal, unethical, and plain ignorant. If you do not want to eat meat fine, but leave others alone.

  32. ANONYMOUS Says:

    James Madison wrote the series of Federalist papers especially the Federalist 10 which addressed the idea of factions and how to curtail the effects of them, and your activist group is purely a faction. Putting the greater good of the public in jeopardy to push your own agendas. This is the whole reason why we adopted the representative form of government which gives you the people the right to vote in Representatives that you feel represent your own views. If you don’t agree with things that are going on, then use your right to vote and put into office people that will help get your ideas taken care of. It is never right to go and start destroying the property of others just because their views don’t meet yours.
    You may not agree with other people eating animals and the passage Obamas measure to re-instate the horse slaughter, but does it sound better to allow these animals to starve because during this downturn people can’t feed themselves, much less their own animals? I, along with you don’t agree with some of the processes that slaughter processing does, but at least by allowing it to go on in the United States they can issue more regulation over what is done. I gladly accept my right to eat meat and that is my right as a citizen of the United States and I think that people that do cowardly things like what has been done with these trucks are what give a lot of activist groups bad names, doing more damage than good. But truthfully… if you have a problem with the United States and the historical background that makes up what the United States is today then maybe you should GET THE FUCK OUT!

  33. Negotiation Is Over Says:

    NAALPO Press Officer Will Hazlitt interviews with FOX and did a great job contextualizing the brilliant ALF action that burned 14 cattle trucks to the ground.

  34. Sally S Says:

    I debated as to whether I wanted to respond to this blog. I am an armchair activist because I am older and I do not have a lot of money. I do not eat meat. I volunteer and try to do what I can for animals.
    I assume that the individuals that did this are fairly young. Had I know of factory farming ways when I was younger, I would have been equally passionate about trying to stop it. However, I do not condone terrorist tactics to achieve a goal. There is enough violence in this world that it seems that we have become numb to it, almost accepting. Passivise approach stands out and affords an honorable place in just about everyone’s eyes regardless of whether you agree with the cause or not.
    With a full life ahead of you, my advise to you is to channel that passion (if indeed that is what it is and not just a desire to “blow things up” for the notoriety of it) into becoming influential members of society. Lawyers, writers, reporters, teachers…these are the people with the true power to change. It will never be a quick process, maybe not even in your life time, but rest assured that once the snowball starts heading down the hill, it will grow with speed and size.
    The people we recognize and value for their contributions to change for the better have never been terrorists. Terrorists are just a flash in pan. Recognized more for their actions, with their cause secondary and usually lost and forgotten. So I pose to you, think hard about what you really want people to remember. Think hard about whether you want your cause to succeed and what is the best way to go about doing that. And, finally, think hard on what you have just done and whether it helped or hurt your cause. Thank you for reading this.

  35. Ron Pauler Says:

    @C

    I said FULLY digest and I didn’t say a week. I said ALMOST 1 week (4-5 days). It may take 24-72 hours to digest in your stomach but NOT FULLY digest in your digestive system. Did you forget your digestive system involves your liver, pancreas, and so on? Animal scientist, my ass! lol Your corn example is completely retarded. If you read what I wrote, I said cows can even digest meat but does that mean they are designed to eat meat? of course not! Learn to read!

    Second, I know we’re omnivores–duh–but we have herbivore TEETH. I only wrote about herbivore teeth! plus, i did write that we can digest meat as well as veggies so that’s implied we’re omnivores–duh!! Can you read English?

    Third, it doesn’t matter if rhinos, giraffes, and other large animals have “modified digestive systems”–that wasn’t my point! My point was that you don’t need meat to be big. Are you Christians really that ignorant that you can’t read properly?

    Fourth, I didn’t come up with my numbers. Those came from the book, What’s Wrong With Eating Meat. Where did you come up with your fake numbers…from your fake Bible? hahaha

    Your pathetic quote: “…do not make decisions for other intelligent humans.”

    I NEVER made any decisions for anyone! I just provided facts about meat. This is the typical Christian tactic of attacking those who are right just because you can’t prove your fake god. (Also, you are not intelligent and I can simply prove it. You believe a man lives in the sky and that his “son” can come back from the dead. That’s stupidity at its stupidest!

    Your insane quote: “As a Christian, I believe the words in the Bible that God gave us dominion over animals to EAT!!!”

    As a sane person, I believe you Christians are the reason why this world is so messed up and it’s because you Christians think you have dominion over all of earth so you kill, murder and destroy every living thing alive! Just look around you. Bush invades Iraq to spread Christianity and take oil and now you have Obama wanting to do the same in Iran. As Voltaire said, “For seventeen hundred years the Christian sect has done nothing but harm” and “Every sensible man, every honorable man, must hold the Christian sect in horror.”

    You also said, “I think the act of burning other’s property is criminal, unethical, and plain ignorant.” Well, guess what? No one gives a damn about your opinion and no one gives a damn about your fake religion. So why don’t you go cry a river in Sunday school?! haha Get lost!

    America’s Founding Fathers were NOT Christians. Here’s proof from their own words:

    “Religions are all alike—founded upon fables and mythologies.”—Thomas Jefferson
    “Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man.”—Thomas Jefferson
    “Lighthouses are more useful than churches.”—Benjamin Franklin
    “This would be the best of all possible worlds if there were no religion in it!”—John Adams
    “The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”—George Washington

    Other cool quotes:

    “All religions are founded on the fear of the many and the cleverness of the few.”—Stendhal
    “Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.”—Seneca
    “Faith means not wanting to know what is true.”—Robert G. Ingersoll
    “Hands that help are far better than lips that pray.”—Robert G. Ingersoll
    “When the missionaries came to Africa, they had the Bible and we had the land. They said, ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them, we had the Bible and they had the land.”—Bishop Desmond Tutu
    “When it’s a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.”—Voltaire
    “All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.”—Thomas Paine

  37. curiouser49 Says:

    I think that the debate about the burning down of 14 cattle trucks owned by Harris Ranch is interesting and self-serving for most of the respondents. One writer criticizes the act based on some comment about what is in the best interest of the “greater good.” I missed this whole point. How does the torture of other species serve a greater good? How do the lies of the meat industry and the systematic poisoning of our children through meat consumption serve the greater good? Another responder mentioned using the vote to make changes. Voters should make animal issues an important platform for election; this is essential for change. They can do this by writing letters, asking questions in public forums, writing editorials, and so on which will eventually mainstream this issue. Making strict laws and enforcing these laws would help enhance their own humanity and demand a higher standard for others.
    The argument regarding horse slaughter from our “leader” (glad I didn’t buy his bull) is inadequate at best. There is money to help feed these horses and give them the life they should have as wild animals. We spend huge amounts of money on pork barrel legislation and just dumb, useless things. If these political leaders would stop greasing each other’s palms and making deals with lobbyists, perhaps that wasted tax money would be used for a more compassionate purpose – in America!
    And, last but not least, a word about the comment someone made about being a “Christian” and having “dominion” over animals – to Eat. As a Catholic, I am so sick of this argument. The term dominion does not give anyone the right to be cruel to other species. In the passages before the famously abused term “dominion” the Bible tells of God creating the world usually ending with the phrase “and saw it was good”. The mindless piecework of the never-ending horror of the slaughterhouses is not good – it is evil. The call for cameras in slaughterhouses is not only relevant it is essential. This is one issue where people fight tooth and nail to at least meet an immediate need. If the death houses were monitored, it would force at least some modicum of compassion until laws can be changed.
    The daily life of a “food animal” before reaching hell – the slaughterhouse – is abysmal. These hellish meat-producing companies are manufacturing food – they don’t care about the lives or the pain of animals. The animals are nothing but a product, a bottom line. But, even scientists will concede that animals feel pain, loss, and contentment; the fear they experience when they are squeezed into a cattle truck owned by the truly evil animal terrorists causes them to be frantic. Animals in the Bible may have been slaughtered for various reasons, but they were slaughtered or used as payment for crimes against others because they were of VALUE. Animal torture is not acceptable, nor is the greed that causes evil sub-species of human to twist God’s intent. Animal torture is nowhere in the Bible. If one claims to be Christian, then one must believe that we were made in God’s image. Therefore, this person is compelled to at least try to act as God expects us to act in all matters, with great responsibility, leadership and compassion for the broken, the poor and the sick. People who choose to condone any cruelty, in this case, the cruelty humans inflict on the voiceless animals, who meat eaters should be the first to support acts of benevolence for, are simply distorting scripture. If one wants to eat meat, then at least demand and lobby for benevolence to those feeding your fat ass and those of your children and loved ones.
    To the perps of cattle truck incident, don’t be so quick to ridicule others because their talents are different and/or they provide help to animals in other ways. It all helps. A person in a power position is more likely to listen to someone who isn’t burning down property, enabling him or her to get something done on another level. Many people work tirelessly for animals. Your anger is misplaced and unfair. Don’t belittle them. Be partners; draw people to you not against you.

  38. Donni De-Ville Says:

    @Julia who said cattle do not have their throats slit. I have at least five graphic videos, from the Uk USA and abroad, and that is the way the cattle are killed. Watch this video if you can; http://tierschutznews.ch/tiere/kategorien/tierschutz/1131-das-bruellen-der-rinder.html

    It is a shame when people have to take things into their own hands, but we have no alternative. The Officials in Congress do not care about animal suffering, NOR does our Pr O. We would defend our own family, even if we are put in jail for it, and we have to rescue animals.

    THERE IS NO NEED FOR ANYONE TO EAT ANIMALS. WE ARE HERBIVORES. EATING MEAT CAUSES MANY PHYSICAL PROBLEMS AS IT IS FULL OF STEROIDS, ADRENALINE TO MENTION A FEW THINGS.

    Just think of this for a minute. If a friend, or even you lose a healthy limb, what is stopping you from cooking that and eating it? What difference between that and the meat from healthy cattle? The difference is that the animal murdered for its meat will suffer immensely, emotionally and physically. YES THEY REALLY DO! There is no such thing as humane killing. Greed and the speed of the cattle going through, has caused this insufferable atrocity.

    LOOK FOR YOURSELVES AT GRAPHIC KILLING VIDEOS OF SLAUGHTERHOUSES, JUST HOW THE CATTLE, BABY CALVES AND LAMBS ARE KILLED. WITH HAMMERS, BASHING THEIR HEADS, AND THEN WHILE THEY ARE ONLY WHOOZY, THEIR THROATS ARE SLICED AND WORKERS TRY TO PULL THE AORTAS OUT!

    THE CATTLE DESPERATELY TRY TO BREATHE, AND BUBBLES COME FROM THEIR THROATS! IF THERE IS ANY HUMAN WHO THINKS THIS DOES NOT MATTER, JUST AS LONG AS THEY CAN STILL EAT MEAT, THEN I SAY THEY ARE DEMONS! YOU WOULD NOT WANT YOUR PET OR CHILD TO GO THROUGH SUCH HELLISH SUFFERING!

    SO THAT IS WHY JUSTICE AND MERCY IS TAKEN INTO THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO TRULY CARE, NOT JUST PRETEND TO. IF YOU LOVE ANIMALS, THAT INCLUDES DOCILE, CATTLE WITH BIG EYES, AND BABY ANIMALS, AND NEWBORNS. LOVING ANIMALS IS NOT ONLY FOR DOMESTIC PETS! EVERY BREATHING ANIMAL APPRECIATES AFFECTION AND COMPASSION. EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEM!

    IF SOME OF YOU STILL DON’T CARE ABOUT THE HORRENDOUS SUFFERING, JUST AS LONG AS YOU HAVE A FEW SLICES OF MEAT ON YOUR PLATE, YOU ARE NOT GENUINE ANIMAL LOVERS, AND YOU DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT THE BABY SEALS BEING BATTERED, OR THE DOLPHINS HAVING THEIR HEADS HAMMERED BY THE SADIST WORKERS. YOU WOULD NOT EVEN CARE ABOUT THE TERRIBLY CRUEL, UNNECESSARY VIVISECTION! IF YOU WATCH A GRAPHIC VIDEO AND IT DOES NOT BREAK YOUR HEART, YOU SHOULD WONDER ABOUT WHAT YOU REALLY ARE!

    ENOUGH OF US, ENOUGH GROUPS TO FIGHT FOR THE VOICELESS IS GOING TO BE THE ONLY WAY TO GET WHAT WE WANT. BANS ON ALL ANIMAL KILLING AND RIGHTS FOR ANIMALS, DOMESTIC AND WILDLIFE!

    Just another thing! We here who truly love ALL animals, should not waste our time trying to explain to those who obviously do not want to listen to the truth of the atrocious suffering, just because they eat meat. NO, as it would make them feel guilty, though they will never admit it. But, we know. Would they take a knife and slice the throat of a petrified cow with huge eyes staring and hoping for mercy? No, but they are cowards as they let others do the dirty work for them.

    So, it is better to spend our time contacting, personally if possible, the bosses or officials to ask for compassion in the slaughterhouses. For videos everywhere so sadist workers cannot be as cruel as they are now. We must lobby, write personal letters to our officials, senators, governors, anyone who can help us to get the BANS on animal killing. If we try hard enough, and if we persevere, we might make a difference. If we do nothing but type words of grief from behind our computers, nothing will change.

    We have a company still trying to get off the ground, and creative projects to market and finish. Percentages of the sales will go to genuine needy causes. I have many regular donations going out now, but we are not really ready yet . I aim to do much more, and this is more important to me than socialising, meeting friends, or travelling. Trying to help ALL animals IS my life, and hubby is arranging that in the form of high profile fund-raising for the near future. I have nothing else I want to do in this world.

    I hope animal activists will get in touch with me, so we can become a group to help wherever we are able to. The genuine chip-ins are great, and go through PayPal with no trouble. For many cases we read about where it might be a life or death situation, to help with transport fees, or for food and long stay medical help. We really should give what we can instead of just weeping. It might mean you cannot go out for a meal or visit the movies, or socialise for a short while. But, it is worth that sacrifice.

    PLEASE see it this way too. The abused animals need you, they need you all!

    There is no cruelty like horse slaughter. These animals are bought at auctions all over the country. They come from owners that can no longer feed their horses, to horses that are simply thrown away because the owner bought a new one, like a old car. The over-breeding of horses in this country is the very underpinning of the horse industry. The Quarter Horse Association encourages over-breeding to the tune of 135,000 new foals to collect the registration fees to fill their coffers. The racing industry breeds over 30,000 foals each year with many of them ending up being sent to slaughter for one reason or another, such as not being the right color or conformation or failed to meet the owners expectations such as what happens with young race horses that don’t make the grade on the track. Most of the owners don’t make any effort to find homes for these animals that they are responsible for bringing into the world. Horse slaughter is a for profit and demand driven cruelty filled business that the horses pay a huge price for. We have been trying for ten years to pass bills in congress to stop US horses from being hauled across the borders with Canada/Mexico and Japan. The two bills introduced in Congress this year are H.R.2966 and S.1176. The racing industry has hired a lobbying firm for $ 50,000 to work against the bills being passed which they have done for ten years. All of the Senate is given payoffs amounting to thousands of dollars in donations to their reelection campaigns (legal bribery) to not even give lip service to the Senate bill S.1176.
    The House has 150 cosponsors the Senate has 27 and we need the Senate in order to pass the bills. The cattle industry also hires lobbyist to work against stopping horse slaughter. Horses are not raised as food animals in the US they are given veterinary drugs on a daily basis that can cause cancer in humans. There are thousands of race horses sent to slaughter each year and the meat is shipped to the the horse meat eating countries for the consumer to eat not knowing about the drugs the animals are given this meat is not fit for human consumption. Here is the site to take a look at just what happens inside a horse slaughter plant Canada. The last slaughter plant in the US was shut down in 2007. There were no laws on the books to prevent this. http://defendhorsescanada.org/chambersofcarnage.html

    There are two horse slaughter plants in these secret video’s. Defend Horses Canada is a group that is trying to stop the killing there too.

    What a terrible thing to praise! What if one of the truck drivers got in their truck right before it was lit on fire? Not only would have it killed him or her, it woudl have affected a FAMILY for the REST of their LIVES! You’re like a pot calling the kettle black. If you have a concern in how an animal is raised, and it certainly sounds like you do, why don’t you try to get to know a farmer and try to show him how it’s done? God gave us animals for food, clothing, and friendship.

    Harris Farms is a FAMILY operation. Yes, they are big. Yes, they raise cows for slaughter. BUT, if these animals are not WELL taken care of, they woudn’t produce QUALITY meat. I can’t preach this enough… ***FARMERS ARE THE ORIGINAL ENVIRONMENTALISTS. IF THEY DON’T TAKE CARE OF THEIR LAND AND ANIMALS, THEY WILL NOT SURVIVE!***

    So please educate me AND educate yourselves. Go to a farm. Meet the farmers. Know where your food comes from.

    THIS IS AMERICA. My grandparents and great-grandparents immigrated here so that they could have FREEDOM to CHOOSE! That includes religion, careers, food, etc. We need to all work TOGETHER to make our world a better place.

  43. anonymous Says:

    “God gave us animals for food, clothing, and friendship.” That was nice of God. What ’bout women? Probably gave them for sex and rape. And the socially and economically impoverished? Probably gave them for labor and enslavement.

    “Harris Farms is a FAMILY operation.” Meaning what, exactly? That families are above inflicting pain and torture? Oh, no, it’s only those evil corporation which engage in brutality, not families, families are the gentlest people on the earth, simply because they are … a family.

    “Know where your food comes from.” From the flesh of innocent beings confined, imprisoned, poisoned, beaten, prodded, shot, cut up into parts while still alive and struggling. Where do you think food comes from? WalMart?

    NO FARM CAN KILL ANY ANIMAL GENTLY AND SWEETLY! NO LIVING CREATURE, MAN OR BEAST, SHOULD BE KILLED, TORTURED OR MURDERED. IN THE BIBLE IT SAYS TO EAT PLANTS, NUTS AND FRUITS. SO YOU HAVE A LOVING GOD WHO ALLOWS THE TORTURE AND KILLING OF LITTLE CHILDREN AND PEOPLE IN GENERAL AND PRECIOUS ANIMALS? THERE WOULD NOT BE ALL THE SLAUGHTER OF OUR GENTLE, INNOCENT SEA MAMMALS IF THIS WORLD WERE NOT CREATED BY AN EVIL DEMON CREATOR! ONLY A SATAN WOULD WATCH AND SMILE AT THE ATROCIOUS SUFFERING DOWN HERE, BY THE HAND OF EVIL MANKIND! (INCIDENTALLY, MADE IN THE IMAGE OF THE CREATOR AS STATED IN YOUR BIBLE!)

    WATCH ALL OF THESE VIDEOS AND READ ALL THE INFORMATION TO CATCH UP, IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH OF HOW PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DUPED AND THE WAY PEOPLES AND ANIMALS LIVES ARE TAKEN. IT IS MURDER!

    http://www.earthlings.com/
    You may understand a lot more of the truth than you seem to know now. If your opinion stays the same as this comment, you will be too ignorant for a debate.

    PS. I DO PRAISE THE WORK OF BURNING THE TRUCKS! THOSE WHO WERE INVOLVED WERE CLEVER ENOUGH TO MAKE SURE NO HUMAN WAS IN THERE, (OF COURSE YOU TWIT!) SO NO-ONE GOT HURT, DID THEY? THAT IS THE IDEA!

    I am educated. But I prefer to see first hand what goes on where my food comes from, rather than look at the internet. How do you teach your children? By scaring them? That’s what you’re trying to do to me here. Calling me names? How sweet you are. Attract flies with honey, not vinegar.

    Maybe I’m just used to the “injustice” of agriculture. I have many family members and friends who farm. Their land and animals are well cared for. Just trying to challenge you to see for yourself what is out there… But, I guess everything on the internet is true, isn’t it?

    I prefer to remain anonymous, yes. I work hard for what I have, and I’d rather not be the subject for your retaliation against “the evils of agriculture”.

    So Donni and anonymous, what do you eat?

    BY THE WAY, THERE IS NO NEED FOR CRUDE LANGUAGE AND I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WERE TRYING TO SAY WHICH MADE NO SENSE. THERE ARE MANY SIDES TO A STORY AND IT IS BEST TO SEE AS MANY ANGLES AS POSSIBLE. RESEARCH SHOWS THE MANY ANGLES AND YOU CAN SEE JUST HOW CRUEL IT HAS BECOME, BECAUSE THE WORKERS ARE SADISTS.

    I CANNOT IMAGINE HOW ANY FARMER, NO MATTER HOW KIND HE IS, CAN KILL HIS CATTLE IN A KIND, PAINLESS MANNER! DO YOUR FRIENDS USE A HAMMER, (LIKE MANY DO IN SLAUGHTERHOUSES) OR A BOLT GUN? FOR THE GENTLE CATTLE TO BE KILLED, EITHER WAY, (AND THAT IS NOT WHAT THEY ACTUALLY GO THROUGH WITH THE CRUEL WORKERS). IT IS HEARTBREAKING AND SO WRONG.

    YOU DIDN’T READ ABOUT THE FAMILY FARMS BEING SHUT DOWN BY THE GOVERNMENT USING SWAT TEAMS YET DID YOU? THEY WILL ARRIVE SOON ENOUGH. THEY WILL NOT BE AS KIND TO THE ANIMALS ON THE FAMILY FARM. I THINK THIS IS DISGUSTING AND TERRIBLE HOW FREEDOM IS BEING CURTAILED BY THE GOVERNMENTS ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE HID IT WELL FROM SOME PEOPLE.

    ACTUALLY, ALTHOUGH I WAS BORN A CITY GIRL, I WAS BROUGHT UP WHERE THERE WERE FARMS, AND I LOVED THE COWS, PIGS AND WAS FRIENDLY WITH A MAGNIFICENT BULL, AS WELL AS HORSES AND THE FARMER LET ME HELP TO FEED THEM. THEY DESERVED TO LIVE! THIS IS WHY I CANNOT BEAR THE CRUELTY SHOWN IN SLAUGHTERHOUSES ALL AROUND THE WORLD. NOT ALL ANIMALS WILL BE KINDLY TREATED LIKE YOUR FAMILY IS DOING, BUT HOW DO THEY KILL THEIR ANIMAL FRIENDS? HEALTHY ANIMALS ARE STILL BEING MURDERED!

    AS FOR EATING, I LIKE YOGHURT, V8 SMOOTHIE DRINKS WHICH HAS FRUIT AND VEG IN IT. NOODLES AND RICE. I AM NOT REALLY INTERESTED IN FOOD, NOR IN VEGAN RECIPES. I HARDLY HAVE TIME TO THINK ABOUT EATING..

    I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE REST THAT YOU SAID. YOU DID NOT HAVE TO BE ANONYMOUS ON MY ACCOUNT, AS I DON’T BELIEVE IN ‘REVENGE.’ NOR DID I DELIBERATELY TRY TO INSULT YOU, BUT INSTEAD, SPENT A LONG TIME TRYING TO GET YOU TO UNDERSTAND AND TAKE YOUR BLINKERS OFF. ONLY THEN COULD YOU KNOW ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO DEBATE.

  50. Shaere Says:

    Anyone who is working to help animals, in whatever way, is doing good. This is a war, the greatest undeclared war in history – the war against non-human animals. We don’t need to eat them, wear them, exploit them in any way. Humans choose to do these things for completely unecessary self-interest. Anyone who fights for animals is a soldier for animals. I was shot at last year by duck murderers. I also saved cats and ducks from slaughter. I fed starving horses. I saved a pigeon left to rot in cage full of carcasses. Every action taken, be it only a donation to an animal rescue organisation, is helping the animals. We need ALL activists, in whatever capacity, to do all they can. Violence is not the only action open to activists. Violence is not the only successful action in getting positive results for animals. Geting undercover footage of animal abuse is often the best action to get positive results. The more we can get the plight of animals into the media, the more people say so to animal abuse. Activists should not be fighting amongst themselves. The fight is for animals. If you make a difference for one animal, then you were a hero for that one animal. Animal activists, in whatever form, are heros for animals. Collectively, we will win. Eventually, food security will result in the abolition of meat as it is simply not sustainable. Go read Eating up the World – available online. The UN already recognises this and is planning for a vegan society. What I find funny, as a vegan, is that I am spoilt for choice of food. That animal product consumers feel they will miss out on great food if they went vegan is really laughable. Animal product consumers are complicit in animal cruelty, whether they admit it or not. They might not have committed the cruelty directly, but they paid someone else to do it. Never be Silent. Speak up for non-human animals. Speak up for the voiceless.

    A sausage a day could lead to cancer: Pancreatic cancer warning over processed meat
    By Sophie Borland

    Eating one sausage a day or two rashers of bacon raises the risk of pancreatic cancer by a fifth, according to research. Scientists have found that even relatively small amounts of processed meat increase the chance of developing this deadly illness. Pancreatic cancer is called ‘the silent killer’ because it often does not produce symptoms in early stages.

    Health fears: Scientists say even one sausage a day can raise the risk of developing pancreatic cancer by nearly 20 per cent Even when it does, the symptoms are often vague – such as back pain, loss of appetite and weight loss. By the time the disease is diagnosed it is often too late and, because of this, it has one of the worst survival rates of all cancers and only 3 per cent of patients live beyond five years.
    Little is known about its causes other than that smoking, excess alcohol and being overweight all seem to contribute.

    Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2085889/Sausage-cancer-Pancreatic-cancer-warning-processed-meat.html#ixzz1jZYs3kOw

    Now scientists in Sweden have found that eating just 50g of processed meat a day raises the likelihood by 19 per cent.
    This is equivalent to a few slices of ham or salami, a hot dog or sausage or two slices of bacon.
    Eating 100g a day – a small burger – increases the risk by 38 per cent while 150g a day raises it by 57 per cent. Ordinary red meat such as joints or steaks increases a man’s chance of getting the cancer, but not a woman’s. But the risk posed by eating meat was substantially lower than for smoking, which was found to increase the likelihood of pancreatic cancer by 74 per cent.

    Still hungry? Eating 100g a day – the amount found in a small burger – increases the risk of developing pancreatic cancer by 38 per cent The research, published in the British Journal of Cancer, analysed the results of 11 other studies involving 6,000 patients with pancreatic cancer. There is already widespread evidence that red and processed meat may trigger bowel cancer. For this reason the Government last year published guidelines advising the public to limit their consumption to 500g of red and processed meat a week. Professor Susanna Larsson, of the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm said: ‘Pancreatic cancer has poor survival rates. ‘So it’s important to understand what can increase the risk of this disease.’ Just over 8,000 Britons are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every year.

    WHICH INFORMATIVE ARTICLES DO YOU WANT TO BELIEVE? FOR YOUR CHILDREN AND OTHER LOVED ONE’S SAKES YOU NEED TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND THAT VEGAN FOOD IS HEALTHIER AND THEN TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY DUE TO KNOWLEDGE OF PROPER RESEARCH.!

    Armchair Activists, we thank you for doing what you can. Your re-posting, signing petitions, doing CHIP-INS and adding articles that we can work on, which does a GREAT LOT OF GOOD! Many of us have got to the age where we are lucky enough to have energy to work out, go shopping for food or even cook for ourselves. But, there are some very fit, intelligent, people out there doing the saving! If some of us armchair activists tried to get out there, WE would have to be rescued as well!

    And not all activists like to be violent or harm humans (as much as some of them deserve it,) Activivsts have to risk the chance of imprisonment, and all to protect any animal that needs rescuing! If humans are helping in causing the suffering of animals, whatever way the activists choose to stop the cruelty is okay by me! I am not so brave, or well enough to get out there apart from helping homeless animals to find safe homes, but I am part of the prevention, so keep demanding bans on slaughter, and sign petitions to get whatever victories we can get.

    There is much talk that soon people will all have to become vegans! I cannot wait for that day, Do enough research and reading and you will find out why. The government are adding too many dangerous chemicals to meat, and also other food we find on shelves and sold in stores!

    MEANWHILE, THANK ALL OF YOU ANIMAL LOVERS WHO DO YOUR BEST TO RESCUE ALL ANIMALS, WILD AND DOMESTIC, THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH!

    TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE! HUGS, XOXOXOXOX

  54. Aggie Says:

    I am absolutely horrified to see how many Americans applaud this type of behavior. Destroying other peoples property is never okay. This sounds like terrorism to me.

  55. John Says:

    “Destroying other peoples property is never okay. This sounds like terrorism to me.”

    Destroying property that is used to transport living, breathing, feeling beings to their death is hardly terrorism.

    Be careful when you say that destroying other people’s property is “never okay” – so, would you be against destroying trucks that carried Jews into Nazi Germany?

    The only difference is that one group is composed of non-humans and the other group is composed of humans. So what? To say that we should fight for one and not the other is speciesist.

  56. Donni De-Ville Says:

    Ranchers love animals!!!?? I do believe they love the money the slaughtered cattle bring in! Get real! John is so right! Just as we would try to rescue humans, by breaking or vandalising a property to get them out, OF COURSE WE WOULD! It is an unwritten law for us to protect or rescue any living creature in harm’s way, to the best of our ability. This means everything that breathes, has emotions and can feel pain.Preventing harm or self defence in aid of a living creature, is ALWAYS going to be correct. Just as it is with humans, or do some folk consider themselves superior to other lives?

    (And to the Christian who commented earlier; IF man were given dominion over the animals, how come humans are very much in the food chain too?) No good god would allow man to cause such suffering as is happening world wide for GREED. It has made them very rich.

    Baby newborns being stolen from their mothers, and hit on their heads with hammers, to kill them. Then all over the world dogs and cats are skinned alive, screaming in pain, to be used for food. Animals treated this way also for FUR! and it is just a a VERY SMALL PART of the atrocious way animals are treated. LOOK AT THIS LINK: http://www.earthlings.com/ and this one;

  59. Abe Says:

    Yes! Every time I drive by that Harris ranch I wave at the doomed cows and promise to do something. But I havent. Burning the trucks was a great idea. The only negative is that now they have tightened security so it will be harder to burn or blow up the extermination buildings.

    Meat kills people. Period. Heart Disease. Don’t eat it. Harris Ranch is responsible for hundreds of thousands of human death each year. You don’t need to eat meat. I havent eaten meat since 1971. My cholesterol level is 125. My kids have never eaten meat. One is a lawyer and the other is international studies. Meat is murder. Long live the truck burners!

  60. Donni De-Ville Says:

    @ AbeI
    It is a shame the exterminations buildings were not totally destroyed, as they can easily with insurance replace the trucks. It would have taken longer to build another slaughterhouse. No matter how people try and argue that meat is good for them, it is ONLY because they don’t want to stop eating it. They may even research, find out the truth, but want to continue. I hope they realise that after researching and knowing the truth if they then still brainwash their children and continue to give them meat, “YOU ARE TAKING YEARS OFF YOUR CHILDRENS LIFE.” If they can live with that, it will be on their conscience!

    thank you, chris -

    the short answer is that i’m stronger and more determined than ever. we should never fear jail, but rather welcome the repression as it is a response to those of us who will escalate this war at any cost in whatever manner we can

    there is nothing they can do to us that remotely compares to that which the animals endure

    I have read all the bullshit about BEEF the fact is in the book I read(the bible) it clearly states that man has dominion over the animals of the land, air , and that slithers on the ground So If you choose not to eat meat that’s good for you welcome to the wonderful world of colon cancer and other various cancers available to “vegans” My wife works at a certain beef packing plant and they do not slit the cattle’s throat , I have seen a cow being killed and it is a humane way no pain is involved These cattle are not fed “meat” as you so often say I am only speaking for a particular plant Also If any of you terrorists find said plant and any harm comes to my wife I will personally hunt you down and do all the things that you assholes think they are doing to cattle I am a animal lover since 1960 and what you people need to realize is if we didn’t eat meat there would be no place for you Jackass’ to live everything has a place in this world and it just so happens they were meant for people to eat or are the ripping and tearing teeth were made for plants only. You jokers need to get a grip on reality every time you assholes do something someones stuff a family member might be there and now you are not only terrorists you will be murderers and in Cali they have a place for people like you and there you don’t get a choice of what to eat I am a veteran of the U.S. military and I didn’t serve my country to allow people to destroy other’s property but obviously you see nothing wrong with that but if it was your property you would want someone to go to jail so seeings how you are now domestic terrorists don’t be surprised when you are infiltrated by the FEDS if you dumb-ass’ hasn’t been already HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  69. Negotiation Is Over Says:

    andrew, thank you for that exemplary display of ineptitude and ignorant ranting run amuck.

    bet your slack-jawed knuckle-dragging kinfolk are quite proud of you, eh?

  70. Andrew Says:

    Just cause you are puny don’t criticize those of us who are built and have 21 inch biceps and benchpressing over 300 lbs if that makes me a “knuckle dragger then thats what I am and my 90 yr old beef eating relatives are proud of me so what does your mother think of your terrorist acts

  71. Negotiation Is Over Says:

    Do you have a double-digit IQ to go along with those 21-inch fat-laden biceps?

  72. Andrew Richardson Says:

    better than 150

  73. Brennan Browne Says:

    Andrew, for a person with an IQ of 150 it seems to me you could have chosen to present us with a fresh argument for your support of meat-eating (even though none exists).

    Quoting the Bible which clearly states in Genesis 1:29 that the Lord “gave us every seed which is upon the Earth, for us it shall be as meat,” denies the fact that we were indeed ORIGINALLY CREATED TO BE VEGETARIANS. Instead, as is typical, you decide to drag out the arrogant, ignorant and erroneously used Genesis 1:26 which presumes one word — “dominion” — means God gave permission to humans for wholesale slaughter and to act like planetary terrorists [ a truly correct use of the term "terrorists," unlike your abuse of the word]. Theologians have long stated that “dominion” as it applies to Genesis 1:26 is more correctly defined as “benevolent protector or guardian.”

    Go back to your Bible and read Genesis, Exodus and Leviticus CAREFULLY. By the time God gave man permission to eat animals, He was thoroughly FED UP with man’s whining, weak and ungrateful nature and decided to concede to man’s desire to eat flesh. He warns that flesh-eating will come at a high cost — early death, suffering and disease. Yes, it’s in there, Andrew! To reinforce this are the following words of Jesus Himself:

    “Verily I say unto you, for this end have
    I come into the world: that I may put
    Away all blood offerings and the eating
    Of the flesh of the beasts and the birds
    That are slain by men.

    In the beginning the Creator gave to all
    The fruits of the trees, and the seeds
    And the herbs for food; but those who
    Loved themselves more than the Lord
    Or their fellows, corrupted their ways
    And brought diseases into their bodies,
    And filled the earth with lust and
    Violence. Not by the shedding of
    Innocent blood, therefore, but by living
    A righteous life shall you find peace.

    Blessed are they who keep this Law, for
    The Creator is manifest in all creatures
    And all creatures live in the Creator.”

    The Gospel of the Nazarenes.
    75:9-14; the words of Jesus

    This verbatim scroll preserved by the Mt. Carmel
    Branch of the Essenes (Carmelites) was found in
    Tibet in the latter part of the first century.
    This text pre-dates the writings of the New
    Testament.

    Confirming texts appear in the Dead Sea Scrolls
    which were discovered in 1947.

    Here’s “more food for thought”:

    The irony is that eating animals underlies most of our degenerative conditions. We are designed to eat plants. We have flat molars to grind plant fibers – not long, pointed canines to tear flesh. We have round, dull nails to dig up roots – not sharp talons to catch and hold prey. We don’t have the speed, agility, or endurance with which to chase prey like the obligate carnivores. We don’t need them. Our “prey” (plant matter) is stationary. Our stomach acid is not strong enough to kill the pathogens found in meat. And our intestines are long and convoluted for the slow extraction of plant nutrients – not short and straight for rapid elimination of the toxins of putrefaction.

    These are the facts, Andrew. And if you possess the intelligence you claim you do then I hope you will be open-minded enough to admit your meat-eating argument is hollow and totally false.

  74. Andrew Richardson Says:

    I don’t listen to religous or theologians but I do read and you are right but dominion is up for interpretation and my bad for misquoting the bible but I don’t particularly want to live in a world where we eat veg. and be ass deep in methane But to each there own but when my family is threatened and people thinking it is ok to destroy property that is over the line and my opinion about beef is just that my opinion and yours are yours but when lives are being threatened that is the definition of terrorism when people are scared to go to work you are imposing your opinion ( not yours in particular just most of these people) you have no right or anybody doesn’t not have the right to threaten mine nor anyone else’s family nor do they have the right to destroy property just cause they don’t like to beef industry I got off point for a min but now I remember what pissed me off in the first place HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  75. Brennan Browne Says:

    Andrew:

    Let’s separate fact from fiction regarding your assertion that you or your wife may be hurt by animal rights “terrorists.” Regardless of the paranoid demonizing the media and law enforcement engage in to scare the hell out of the public, there has never been a single injury or death since the inception of the U.S. Animal Rights Movement in 1980 by an ARA (animal rights activist). This is not just luck. Individuals who feel strongly about the terrible suffering of non-humans are committed to respecting ALL LIFE. You have a better chance of being killed by a unicorn (which we all know doesn’t exist) than by someone taking direct action to save the lives of abused and tortured animals. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the victimization of ARAs which have been, and continue to be, cold-bloodedly murdered by corporate interests around the world.

    Introducing the terms ‘eco / domestic’ “terrorists” into the public’s vocabulary was planned. A clever, though totally morally bankrupt, wicked and manipulative corporate strategy, undertaken by those who make their billions from animal exploitation, e.g. Big Pharma, Big Ag. These labels employ the basic psychology of divide and conquer — us vs them. Successfully vilify the other guy and no one will bother to view him as a person anymore, he will be objectified as a “thing” that represents “evil”. This ploy is not new or original. The same strategy was used by the Nazis against the Jews. This type of psychological indoctrination is also employed across the board within the military and law enforcement. Tell a man he is fighting to enrich and expand U.S. corporate interests so that billions more will flow into the pockets of the elite few and how many will fight and die? Zero. But tell soldiers they are fighting communism, fascism or “terrorism” and they will line up in droves to die.

    Animal rights “terrorism” is as mythical as that unicorn I mentioned. Property damage remains just that, and should be labeled vandalism — nothing more. If your neighbor sets your car on fire because he thinks you are an immoral tool, that doesn’t make him a terrorist, only an arsonist. The same standards should apply to those exact same crimes universally. Otherwise, it is nothing more than corporate/political lying manipulation just like the examples I referred to above.
