Moz’s veggie radicalism

28 07 2011

I don’t care if people are vegetarian, vegan or what have you.  In fact, even as a meat eater, I respect their convictions and why many of them avoid meat and animal products.   There’s a brutality to the food industry that is sometimes very hard to justify.

But you know you’ve lost your way when society starts to equate the death of animals to the death of humans.  Maybe I’m the old fashioned crackpot here, and not the animal rights people, but I value human life over animal life.

Morrissey, apparently, would say the slaughter of animals is equivalent to the slaughter of people, and he recently equated the horrible events in Norway with killing in the food industry.  From Uncut:

The singer allegedly made the comments during a gig in Warsaw on Sunday (July 24), before playing The Smiths[/a] song ‘Meat Is Murder’. Morrissey[/a] apparently said: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Shit every day.

I think he’s crocked.
