President Trump in January 2017 – OMG!
Check out the two older articles linked below, they’re especially relevant to vegans and animal activists on this day; lots of food for thought in them. I like Thinking Vegan a lot more than full-blown socialist Roland Vincent, but both of them explain how Trump could possibly be good for animal rights and veganism regardless of his assholery on the issue or left-versus-right politics:
I especially feared Hillary in power because she would have forced vaccines (through appointing her CDC director) on us all as a lover of policymaking and enforcement and a strong proponent of vaccines, while the anti-vax people say Trump is suspicious of vaccines and not at all likely to have them made compulsory by appointing a vaccine nazi as CDC director.
Whether you favor or oppose vaccines, no one should support forcing others to submit to them, which is where the vaccine movement is headed and has been for some time.
Sadly though, Trump is no friend of animals or vegans, but, believe me, neither are the Clinton, Obama or Sanders crowds, even if they talk a good game at times.
Also see the two videos and the 10/2015 Savage-Trump discussion linked below.
Outspoken radio talk host, Michael Savage, trained in medicine, is a possible choice for Trump’s Director of the NIH (or possibly the CDC instead?), and this would most likely be very good for the anti-vivisection movement, especially for those poor animals stuck in those cages. Listen to him here especially around 4:50 to 5:55:
The NIH directs all funding to research institutions! So keep a watch and hope for Dr. Savage to get this appointment, as it has been suggested by some.
Savage also opposes vaccines and would likely never support compulsory vaccines as shown here:
Savage is not a friend of animal activists though; he often rages against us too, says he hates animal cruelty but can’t stand us either…so keep that in mind. But what he says and what he’ll actually do and its effect on animals is what we have to keep in mind, not our touchiness about being condemned as activists.
