Thought Of The Day. March 12, 2016

Today’s Thought:

 

Our current system is worse for animals than Germany was for Jews, by several orders of magnitude.

 

 

Author’s Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

• Be sure to visit Armory of the Revolution’s new commissary and bookstore: The Supply Depot

You will find recommended reading on Animal Rights, revolutionary theory, politics, economics, religion, science, and atheism. There is also a section of supplies for animal liberationists, hunt saboteurs, and social revolutionaries. This is all brand new, and we will be adding lots more merchandise in the near future!

Feel free to comment. I encourage open discussion and welcome other opinions. I moderate comments because this blog has been attacked by hunters and right wing trolls. I approve comments that are critical as well as those which agree with me. Comments that I will not tolerate are those that are spam, threatening, disrespectful, or which promote animal abuse and cruelty.

    • You seem to add whatever connotations you wish to other people’s words. I was quite specific in my article. I abhor Islam, not Muslims. Here are the operative words in the article. I’m curious how you manage to cavalierly change their meaning: “I abhor all slaughter. I abhor all religions which require and practice animal sacrifice. Santeria, orthodox Judaism, Armenian Orthodoxy, Hinduism. Any religion which teaches such barbarism is my enemy. Islam murders more animals than all the world’s religions combined, by orders of magnitude.”

      Similarly outrageous is making convoluted assumptions that have nothing to do with immigrants. I personally do not give a shit who works in slaughterhouses or why. Were it within my ability, I would happily shoot down everyone in the chain pf slaughter. No xenophobia involved.

      Still waiting on the apology.

  1. True that, but you know you can’t say that in polite company. It will always be interpreted as racist and anti-semitic, never mind that it’s obviously just a fact, and one that needs addressing. People may have enough empathy or imagination to picture themselves as a Jew in Nazi Germany, but rarely enough to feel what an animal goes through in a factory farm, slaughterhouse, lab, circus, or any other of the countless areas where mankind puts other species through hell on a mass scale. Truth is hard for the human race to face.

    • Comparing the suffering of animals in slaughterhouses to the suffering of Jews in Nazi concentration camps is not anti-Semitic; indeed it was first suggested by Isaac Bashevis Singer, who lost relatives in the Holocaust. But Roland’s assertion that the Nazi concentration camps were not nearly as bad as slaughterhouses comes very close to Holocaust denial, especially when viewed in the context of his call for organizing armed right-wing militias and his frequent expressions of hatred for Jews, Muslims and immigrants.
