Not quite enough to stop eating them. Not quite enough to avoid voting for their enemies. Not quite enough to even bother to find out who those enemies are.
Most animal activists are politically liberal. As such, they tend to listen to liberal pundits and politicians. And they tend to drink liberal Kool Aid.
A perfect example is the near unanimity of opinion among animal people that Donald Trump is a racist, a misogynist, a xenophobe, etc.
The beneficiary of this opinion is Hillary Clinton.
And animal activists who buy the propaganda about Trump do not love animals quite enough to take a hard look at Hillary Clinton.
Many are swept up in the euphoria of the potential that we will have a woman president. Many just have priorities that are more important to them than are the animals. Many are swayed by family, by celebrities, by the media.
Few seem influenced by the animals.
Because if animals influenced how animal activists voted, nearly every animal activist would be supporting Donald Trump.
Not because Trump cares about animals. He doesn’t.
Not because he is enlightened about animal suffering and exploitation. He isn’t.
But because Donald Trump will save HUNDREDS OF MILLION ANIMALS FROM DEATH EVERY YEAR HE IS PRESIDENT.
That is almost a billion animals in his first term.
To put that in perspective, the entire worldwide animal movement has only saved about 50 million animals over the last 50 years!
Trump would save 20 times that number with the stroke of a pen!
Trump has promised to abrogate our trade agreements.
Trade agreements cause the murders of hundreds of millions of animals each year. Trade agreements make animal copses cheaper to produce and more profitable. US corporations use Third World labor and non-existent food safety and anti-cruelty laws to close American meat packing plants and slaughterhouses and then import the corpses to the US for sale. American workers lose jobs. American consumers buy meat produced in violation of US labor laws, US environmental laws, and US anti-cruelty laws. The trade agreements even require that the US ban Country of Origin labeling to prevent consumer backlash and boycotts. Last year, the Obama administration passed the ban on Country of Origin labeling!
Trump’s opposition to trade agreements has been the mainstay of his campaign. And Bernie Sanders’ campaign as well.
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton negotiated the Trans Pacific Partnership, the Mother of All Trade Agreements. Clinton called it the “gold standard of trade agreements.” Once Bernie entered the race, Hillary recanted her support for TPP.
The TPP will cause the murders of several billion animals each year. And it appears Hillary Clinton is positioning herself to embrace the TPP if she is elected.
Hillary instructed her delegates to block Bernie Sanders call to make opposition to the TPP part of the Democratic platform.
The Republicans are officially opposed to the TPP, the Democrats are not!
The bottom line for animal activists is that Hillary Clinton will enforce our existing trade agreements, and may well embrace the TPP.
Donald Trump will abrogate our trade agreements and save more animals than has any person in history.
Not rocket science, folks!
If you vote for Hillary you are dooming almost a billion animals to death.
I doubt the animals would consider you an ally. Because you are not.
You are voting to kill a billion animals. Think about that for a moment.
You become one of the animals biggest enemies.
