Judgmental Anti-Judgmentalism in the Plant-Based Cult

People's popular notion of vegans

People’s popular notion of vegans

A prolific cult has attached itself to veganism like a giant sucking leech, condemning ethical veganism and promoting an anorexic/orthorexic, fanatically low-fat diet based on starch, or entirely fruit, raw, whatever. The word “fat” is spit out with utter contempt, so to be a member of this cult you need to get proficient at that, their main identifier.

In this highly tolerant cult, liberal politics are openly preached as if “no conservatives need apply.” Virtuous, extreme thinness and wide thigh gaps abound, exercise mania rules the day, bubbliness beams from gaunt little faces, toothpick arms flail, and aggressive normalcy oozes from loudly babbling mouths. They sometimes live in fancy big houses and brag about how admirable and wonderfully normal their lives, their selves and their perfect families are.

They pity or make fun of anyone lacking their advantages. They especially pity-hate the “overweight” and assume that those people consume shameful quantities of vegetable & animal fats, otherwise they would not be fatties. Yet, being judgmental is a huge taboo in this jet-setter community…so by “judgmental” they mean judging anything differently than they do.

I often see them gossiping, gleefully condemning even slightly chubby people, political opposites and animal-advocate vegans as scourges and destructive morons. That, they claim, is their being appealing and welcoming to not-yet-vegans. Along with, of course, their embracing of meat eating and such as just another life choice, nothing morally wrong with it…nothing at all! (Except that it’s “fattening.”)

If you’re fawning and apologetic enough to the wiry plant-based for your slovenly, less than reedy self, and properly admiring, you too can join their big happy club. Because vegan no longer has a definition, you see, it’s a big, happy, selectively indefinable group of slim party people who only reject fatties, those obsessed with animal suffering, and the politically incorrect (ew, outcasts!). For other than those undesirable groups, vegan now means a carelessly shrugged, “whatever.” 😃

ironyThat pragmatism brings SUCCESS! to these self-proclaimed effective vegans…they get the numbers that way, they say, while preachy, bad vegans FAIL by scaring folks away by insisting that vegan means, well, vegan, as in radical, as in no animal foods, products, etc. …nothing that supports animal use/abuse/killing, to the best of our abilities in the world as it is. But we’re wrong, you see, vegan is strictly a diet, mainly a weight loss diet, and when you’re done losing weight, or whatever, you can go back to animal products if they call out to you…and still be vegan if you wanna be! You don’t have to be  honest and true like them…

I speak as a former lapsed vegan who wanted to continue calling myself vegan when I wasn’t, but would say “mostly vegan” if asked. I was sporadically over the years eating dairy, eggs and occasional fish just because it was “easier” and I was isolated away from other vegans, more able to fool myself into believing the cage-free or humane myths. I was also frightened by clever “vegan health disaster” stories put out by meat industry shills. Realizing that honesty and true definitions really matter (and the animals even more so)…thanks to “preachy” online vegans no less…are what brought me back to stay in early 2009. This is precisely the problem “pragmatic vegans” have with ethical vegans, why they hate us so much. They don’t want vegans to stay with it. They evidently have another agenda?


Happy village slaughter, no big corporate demons here.

We animal-advocates have non-vegan loved ones and love them no less, but would love them even more than ever if they got with us. We’re basically decent people, not these venomous monsters we’re depicted as (by actual venomous people). We don’t go around tying people to railroad tracks or whatever “vegan villains” do. We understand “almost vegan” and such; we appreciate when people are trying and transitioning, and less animal consumption is always better. Still, we do want everyone to be with us…but as vegans for the animals, not KFCegans or unconcerned plant-based dieters. (I have a lot of gall assuming that I speak for other vegans, but it’s just going by my experiences.)

Now with this pragmatic anti-vegan vegan cult, being vegan “to the best of our abilities” has been contorted to mean that if eating big macs on occasion is the best you can do, then you’re still vegan if you only eat big macs a couple of times a month, or whatever, that’s just a random example. Now, that sounds like a meat industry agenda to me.

See, to be a proper, effective vegan activist you need to preach about dangers and pitfalls of “giving up a whole, vital category of food!” and how most people cannot do this safely, so they need to be forgiven when they go back to cheeseburgers and bacon & eggs (the real goal). Ideally, grass fed, free range, humanely killed! But ideals aren’t fun all the time, so off to Bill’s Burger Barn you go…you gotta live after all, shucks. Now, this is how you grow veganism!

egg-headWell, that is of course how you water down veganism, attempt to make it meaningless, frightening, cultish, bizarre, dangerous, and full of loopholes, where animal farming & slaughter suddenly are under its welcoming umbrella. That’s in fact how you fight against veganism from within. Like a disease. Then we have their favorite Pied Piper, Temple Grandin, at the helm with all that “humane” slaughter gushiness people so love to get behind. It’s a hell of a lot of cleverness…I’ll give it that.

But wait, there’s a “vaccine” against the disease, this “too hip & healthy to dwell on animal abuse” and/or this “effective pragmatic” plant-based dieting: Love for innocent Wind People Watch Tough Face Outdoor Woman Modellife, self-respect, moral/ethical strength, honesty, and a highly developed deception filter. And there are no debilitating side effects with this self-immunization. To top it all off, it’s free! Rewarding even.

Omnivore diet (along with keeping cats) is child abuse! Let’s go get ’em, angry mob!

If these subject parents were vegans, “THE vegan diet” would have been blamed, but they’re meat eaters, so bad parenting is pointed at. Nice how that works, isn’t it? Check out the fridge contents at 0:56 in the below article’s video…chicken packages. Casserole and roasting pots on the counters, commonly used for meat dishes. Bottle of steak sauce in the mess too, along with plenty of liquor bottles mentioned. Five starving children in a meat-eating household. Just imagine the field day everyone would be having if those parents had instead been uncommonly ill-informed, nutty “vegans.”

(Poor kid, imagine, trying to sell his toy to get a bit to eat, and four more hungry kids at home. Poor cats too. I hope all are safe now.)

Consider how about 15 to 16 million children (infancy to age 18) in the USA live in households where they are unable to have enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life. Realize that the vast majority (if not all) of those households rely on (often government supplied “free” with food stamps) meat/dairy/eggs as their main calorie sources. It is neglect and abuse causing these children suffering and ill health…inherent in that are bad food choices, lack of fresh produce, reliance on packaged junk and animal products and a general total lack of care, along with poverty which should preclude people from bringing children into the world to depend on them. That total lack of care was exemplified in these parents’ evidently caring more for their drunkenness than their children. 

So when a child neglect/malnourishment case occasionally occurs with ill-equipped vegan parents, please put 2 + 2 together and see these “vegan malnutrition/child abuse” stories as what they are. They’re hyped up garbage dug up by meat interests and spread by a beholden and unscrupulous media, and gobbled up and hatefully enjoyed by the public, so eager for legitimate sounding excuses to continue supporting animal abuse and killing. “It’s vegans we should hate, not our own culpability!”

FarmSanctuaryGo vegan. Stay vegan. Be healthy. Be impervious to the vicious and relentless, hugely financed campaign against veganism. And forge ahead. We are the animals’ only hope and we must grow and grow and succeed.

Does Veganism Kill Babies?

First, here are some handy guides to raising healthy vegan kids:

Yep, another “malnourished vegan baby” story hit the news like a stink bomb recently…

Royalty-free stock photo of sick newborn, most likely not vegan

Royalty-free stock photo of sick newborn, most likely not vegan.

…This time from Italy, and it was triumphantly grabbed onto by “news” outlets and run with, vehemently. Again painting veganism as fraught with terrifying risks, a godawful lifestyle…especially terrible for children and babies! I won’t plug the story here by delving into it or with links…people can find that oh-so-easily on their own. The powers that be want you to find it.

I only want people to consider this:

Thousands and thousands of vegan parents give birth to and raise perfectly healthy vegan children. Those kids have far fewer illnesses than their peers and are very rarely obese; they’re active, bright, nicely behaved, full of character, all in all, prime examples of how to parent and raise healthy kids (see above links). And a large number of “omnivorous” kids raised on pancakes, sausages, bacon, cheese and other junk suffer malnourishment every day, even suffering or dying from heart disease and various cancers at young ages. And no one wants to link any of that to all that bacon and ice-cream. But feed kids vegetables and fruits minus the hot dogs, and look out, you’re headed for tragedy!

People basically believe what they want to believe, with truth and facts having no bearing on any of it. Note how we have no news pinheads trumpeting about the dangers of animal based diets for children. After all, media sponsors are animal agriculture and pharmaceutical industries. So, “meat/milk/eggs are wholesome health-giving foods fed to their children by smart and loving parents!” And don’t you DARE even think otherwise!

16Now, let there be some out-there kooks or irresponsible orthorexic or anorexic “vegan” parents that unintentionally starve their babies or children and end up in trouble and having their kids taken away, and you’ve got a huge news story on your hands. Something that will be gleefully and hatefully spread like wildfire, full of talk about vegan idiots and child abusers who’ve no right to even exist in this world. A huge load of vileness which the public is all too eager to join in on in an ugly attempt to justify their continuing to support animal “growing,” abuse, torture, and slaughter…being the “necessary-evils” believing animal lovers they are.

Note: I put “vegan” in quotes up there because some people who apparently know the full story in the news recently wrote that it’s not true that this baby was vegan, and that the whole story has been debunked (see youtube comment screenshots below). Regardless of what’s actually the case, however, the damage has been done. People so need to have “reasons” to condemn animal-free diets/lifestyles, so they will have those reasons, come hell or high water!screenshot 2screenshot 1

A Comparative Case in Point…

Vaccines GOOD – Veganism BAD!

Consider how those same masses…when hearing parent after parent after parent tell of their cases of serious, life-changing, debilitating, even fatal VACCINE damage in their kids…stand firmly with the “authorities” in disbelieving them, hating them, condemning them as unfit parents. Basically raging against them as societal scourges who should be rounded up, put in camps and forcefully vaccinated with every shot out there, and their kids confiscated by the government and of course vaccinated up the wazoo as well.

So here we have human delusional dementia exemplified:

Flimsy cases of “vegan malnutrition” are instantly believed by the public, who enthusiastically swallow it all, hook, line and sinker. Suddenly anecdotal “evidence” becomes concrete as can be and the many other instances proving the opposite…that vegan kids are healthier than others…are to be ignored as more of those heinous vegan LIES.

While case after case after case of actual devastating vaccine damage reported by all sorts of sensible, educated parents, as well as certain more honest and therefore despised doctors, is roundly dismissed as anecdotal and therefore to be ridiculed as trendy hysteria spread by irresponsible luddites under the undue influence of certain despised celebrities. Tales of unvaccinated kids being far healthier than their peers and of those vaccinated peers actually spreading diseases which they’re vaccinated against are all filthy LIES!

To clarify (or muddy up) the point even further…

You are to believe unquestioningly that veganism is dangerous and a form of child abuse because of the entirely anecdotal “evidence” of occasional dimwits who have eating disorders and thereby starve their babies. And you are to hatefully dismiss the myriad of evidence to the contrary provided by smart vegan parents with very healthy kids from conception onward. You are to continue to believe all that even when it turns out the malnourished child was not vegan. Why? Just because and how dare you ask! And just forget about all those omnivore kids who are sick and malnourished, to the tune of 62.8 million kids worldwide who suffer from acute malnutrition today. While…

You are to believe unquestioningly that vaccines are safe/effective and therefore excellent childcare, despite many parents’ accounts of life-ruining damage manifesting immediately (or weeks/months later) following vaccines. Anecdotal is bad, bad evidence, don’t you know? Even when hundreds and hundreds report the same types of damage. And all those accounts of parents who say their kids are all vaccinated up and healthy as heck are to be believed 100%…how could anyone doubt a smart and aggressive parent’s word?! The industry has done studies, after all, and shown themselves as heroes. To doubt is to sin!

In a Nutshell

Rare, questionable anecdotal evidence of vegan baby starvation, even when contradicted by real life and scientific evidence, is to be believed in alliance with the powers that be…in this case, animal agriculture.

While copious, demonstrative anecdotal evidence from parents with vaccine-damaged kids, when contradicted only by vested-interest evidence, is to be roundly rejected in alliance with the powers that be…in this case, the pharmaceutical/vaccine industry.

Convenient, how that all works out, ain’t it? And the public eagerly gobbles it all up and becomes ever more gleeful with hatred against “bad parents” of both the vegan and anti-vax type. Simply wonderful. I think I’ll reconsider being a misanthrope. Turn in my card. Hah.
