Morrissey and friend...
IMAGE

It's Thanksgiving time which also means it's time for the annual Presidential Turkey Pardon. Well-known vegetarian, animal activist and PETA stamp star Morrissey, however, feels otherwise. He sent a missive, titled "Thankskilling," to his public conduit True to You:

Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny!
As Ingrid Newkirk from PETA points out, turkey 'meat' is one of "our nation's top killers", causing heart-attacks and strokes in humans due to saturated animal fats and cholesterol. And President Obama laughs.

Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House 'turkey pardon' is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry.

And President Obama laughs.

In other Morrissey news, the singer will appear at a Nobel Peace Prize concert at the Spektrum in Oslo, Norway on December 11. He'll sing three songs and other performers for the concert include Omar Souleyman, Mary J. Blige, James Blunt, and Jake Bugg.

You can read more about Morrissey's vegetarianism and other things in his new Autobiography which comes out in America December 3.

"Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission"

The other 49% of gas emission is coming out of Morrissey's asshole.

Why single out Obama when every president the last 100 or so years has done this?

I love this man's passion for animals. He is 100% right. We need more people like Moz to speak out against the horrors caused by murderous carnivores!

Doesn't this guy wear leather? Don't criticize people eating turkey if you're wearing dead animals on your feet. What a fraud.

"Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, "

I'm sure Morrissey's private plane to the Nobel Peace Prize conference releases no emissions.

10:04, I would imagine he doesn't given his passion for animal rights, why do you think he does?

If Obama can get a Nobel prize for doing absolutely nothing, might as well give one to Morrissey too.

BIIIIIIIIIIG ANNOUNCEMENT FOR BROOKLYN VEGAN (and what better thread to post it in than a thread about Beastie Boys?)

I, D, the poster you love to hate to love to like to dislike or give two shits about yet you constantly dog me like I fucked your wife/girlfriend/sister/daughter/
whatever special female in your life
HAVE CREATED AN EMAIL which will be posted EXCLUSIVELY in Brooklyn Vegan comments and will be posted under EVERY SINGLE FIRST COMMENT I POST IN A THREAD.

That email is...drumroll please...

dfromthebv@gmail.com

I will read messages sent from Gmail addresses only. Yahoo is for yahoos, AOL is for AHOLES, Outlook is just the new Hotmail and unnecessary when there's Gmail, and any other free email services are just like WHAAA??? Exceptions will be people writing from websites.

I will most likely check this email address and/or reply to whoever only once a week (most likely Friday the end of my work week.)

Go to it. BTW I may or may not report threats to Gmail (most likely not.) I most likely will not reply unless you have something real to say like I do every time I post on here.

So again...

BV, did you change the picture accompanying this post? If so, why? The one with the turkey seemed more appropriate?

FUCK MORRISSEY.

Here's why:

HOW COME HE DIDN'T DIRECT THIS TO THE BUSHES AND CLINTON?

Why is he coming after Obama after ALL the U.S. Presidents who have celebrated turkey for Thanksgiving before Obama?

According to an interview with PETA he became a vegetarian when he was 11 or 12 years old which means he's been a vegetarian well before he became famous and throughout his famous life. He was famous when Bush Sr. was U.S. President? Why didn't Morrissey go after Bush Sr. especially when Bush I was the U.S. President who started the whole Prez turkey ceremony? Why didn't he go after Clinton then Bush II?

I think he's a closet racist because he goes after the black President but not the white men before them when he had a voice to.

Dude shut the fuck up about Obama taking away healthcare. Your talking points are just that.

First off if you want to keep your overpriced healthcare plan thus spend more for worse or same care than you really have to, you can. Be a dumbass who buys 10 of something for $10 instead of 10 of the same or better thing for $5.

Second you can re-enroll in a cheaper, better plan and if you had any fucking brains you would and hey there's this thing that existed before the internet, iPhone etc. called THE TELEPHONE - use it to make a toll-free aka free phone call to enroll in so-called "Obamacare".

BTW why are you and your kind SOOOO against people paying less for equal or better healthcare and having health insurance period? Afraid they'll have more money to spend thus power over their lives (thus less power over their lives held by you or whoever you wish you were who shits on you, too) and are more likely to keep the houses, cars, property, money, and other stuff healthcare companies would love to still take away from people like the legal loansharks they are?

The worse thing you can do against the greedy is give their prey power. You're either one of these greedy predators or too fucking stupid - a present day Archie Bunker - to see it. Keep being a stooge of the rich who want everyone else sick, weak, in hock and beholden to them forever.

Hey where is the Republicans' affordable healthcare plan for uninsured Americans and Americans who want to pay less but get at least the same or better healthcare? NOWHERE.

Where is YOUR healthcare plan, all you Obamacare naysayers?

Why are people like you against others having what they (you) have? Less for them (you), what else? FUCK YOU!
