The Vegan Crusade: UK activist wants to make veganism protected like a religion, unleashing the zealots

British ‘ethical vegan’ Jordi Casamitjana hopes to have his whole movement recognized by an employment tribunal as a protected belief, similar to a religious faith – which could give vegan zealots free rein in the workplace.

Casamitjana says he was fired from his job because of his beliefs – he disclosed to other employees at the League Against Cruel Sports that it invested its pension funds in firms involved in animal testing. He couldn’t leave well enough alone because he is an ‘ethical vegan’ – someone who doesn’t just avoid animal products, but also holds veganism as a “philosophy and a belief system”, and, apparently, feels the need to spread it around.ALSO ON RT.COMUnashamedly intolerant: Veganism promotes a religion of hate, attempts to guilt-trip & ridicule meat eaters

During hearings on Thursday and Friday, Casamitjana hopes to convince an Employment Tribunal that his beliefs should enjoy the same status as long-established religions such as Christianity, Judaism or Islam. Beyond merely vindicating the man in his job dispute, the process could end up opening the door to endowing veganism with the authority of the sacred.

In an era where lifestyle identity and politics dominate public life in the Western world, there is a constant tendency to transform individual beliefs into a sacred cause. Vegans are only the latest of a long line of life-style warriors who have demanded that their beliefs should enjoy the legal protection afforded by the Equality Act. In response to these demands, the courts have adopted a relatively relaxed attitude towards dishing out protected status. In 2011, a court ruled that belief in the sanctity of animal life should be protected. As a result of recent rulings, the status was bestowed on the conviction that fox hunting is evil, and the belief that it is possible to communicate with the dead using psychic powers.

‘Protected beliefs’ dilute the idea of what’s sacred

There is, of course, a weighty argument against the proliferation of protected beliefs; which is that it undermines the moral authority of long-established religions. As more and more everyday views are accorded the same moral status as long held religious ideals, the idea of the sacred becomes diluted and emptied of meaning. 

Nevertheless, I do not mind if veganism gains legal recognition for what it really is – a proselytising would-be religion. The zealotry of many vegans resembles the attitudes and forms of behaviour that are generally associated with the worst features of theocratic intolerance.

Crusading veganism needs to be distinguished from the personal decisions to eat only vegetables and avoid animal products. It regards non-vegans as akin to ignorant heathens, who must be converted to the cause. Towards its critics it has adopted the ruthless temper of the Inquisition. Vegan fanatics have targeted turkey and livestock farmers, butchers and steak houses.

Even the mainstream of this movement has adopted the intolerant habit of treating meat eaters as their moral inferiors. They ceaselessly moralise and lecture people about how they should live their lives. Unlike vegans in the past, who regarded their attitude to food as a private dietary issue, their contemporary brethren believe that converting others to their way of life is a public duty.ALSO ON RT.COMPaper beer bottles & wooden cutlery: Do eco-moralists care more about the environment, or turning people’s lives upside down?

Vegans unleashed to set their rules

The real question at stake is not whether or not veganism becomes as protected as a religion, but the practical consequences of this decision for the rest of society. In a democratic society, individuals are entitled to hold strong beliefs. However, they are not entitled to impose those beliefs on others. Nor are they entitled to expect that employers, colleagues and other people must accommodate to their beliefs. Yet, that is exactly what the drive for protected status for veganism hopes to achieve.

The most significant issue here is to what extent the public will have to accommodate to the ambitions of veganism. Recently a nursery that introduced a plant-based only menu was forced to backtrack after the children’s parent revolted against its unilateral imposition. If nurseries believe that it is OK to enforce their doctrine on little children, how long before other institutions follow suit? Will employers be expected to provide employees with vegan meals? Will they have to accommodate to vegans’ dislike for leather chairs and clothes because of the ‘stress’ and ‘mental harm’ they cause them? Though the answer to these questions is far from clear, it is likely that protected belief status will embolden these attempts to impose a certain lifestyle on the rest of us.

In reality, veganism does not need protected status, because it enjoys significant support from the UK’s cultural establishment. The Economist rightly predicted that 2019 would be ‘the year of the vegan’ and that veganism would go mainstream. Celebrities like Arianna Grande and Benedict Cumberbatch regularly endorse their vegan diet. On the media and the domain of youth culture, a vegan diet is often portrayed as a mark of virtue. However, for the vegan crusade, the adherence of celebrity culture to its cause its not enough. It wants to force itself on the meat-eating majority. Gaining protected status for its dogma would provide them with legal clout to further that ambition.

Danish doctor warns: Vegan food may lead to mental retardation

Chief physician Allan M. Lund at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen warns that vegan food can have severe consequences, such as epilepsy and ultimately developmental disorders.

In Denmark, there is now a debate about the suitability of an increasing number of families giving their children only vegan food. Critics are opposed to scrapping all animal products in small children’s diet.

The problem is that poor food, which for example requires the addition of vitamin B12, can have serious consequences for children. And as a result several children on a vegan diet have been treated at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen.

“Such a diet may involve developing different brain symptoms. With muscle weakness, poor contact and epilepsy. And in the long term mental retardation”, says chief physician Allan M. Lund to TV4.

According to Lund, one should not completely remove meat, eggs and dairy products from small children’s diet without first consulting with a dietician.

In addition to developmental disorders, it can also cause nutritional deficiencies.

Eco Lbierty Conclusion: One of the reason written the article.10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD REJECT THE ANIMAL RIGHTS MOVEMENT AND ITS IDEOLOGY Because the Animal rights movement agenda is not only just about total animal liberation but remove our connection to animals. PETA and the animal rights movement want pet ownership banned; according article written by Wesley J Smith ANIMAL RIGHTS WOULD BAN PETS. They want us banned owning any animals for any purpose; even as pets. PETA and the animal rights movement does not want us to eat meat and they’re using scare tactics like “eating meat is bad for the planet; bad for our health” In fact humans need to eat meat to get the require nutrients that our human bodies needs like Vitamin B12 and many other nutrients that you can’t get from plant base food. I have watch many ex-vegan video telling their stories; you find them on you tube which I remember you watching; because they tell their own stories why a long term vegan is not healthy for any humans. That why if there a agenda to force people on a vegan diet which there is; The New World Order Elites are push the animal rights agenda because they know that vegan diet is not on long term bases. Because the Elite do not want us be healthy; because a healthy human being is more aware what is going on. The elite wants us to sick and enslaved and they will still be eating meat. Good News that Ex-vegan are speaking out that Vegan diet on a long term bases is unhealthy for humans at any age.
For Eco Liberty point of view that “we encourage health; but the elite want us sick and enslave” We will continue to speak out against the Animal Rights and fake environmentalism propaganda. If are one the ex-vegans viewing this post I like to hear your story from you.

VEGANS WANT TO BAN PHRASE “BRINGING HOME THE BACON”

Classic saying considered “oppressive, promotes abuse”

Vegans and other activists are slamming use of phrases like “bringing home the bacon” and “your goose is cooked.”

Traditional “meat-based” metaphors are now considered a throwback of a “societal power” that oppressed “disadvantaged groups,” according to a researcher at Swansea University.

“…Meat is more than just a form of sustenance, it is the very king of all foods,” said the researcher. “It’s a source of societal power.”

She justified the war on the phrases by stating that historically, meat was meant for the upper classes while the poor had to eat mostly a vegetarian diet.

“As a result, the consumption of meat was associated with dominant power structures in society, its absence from the plate indicating disadvantaged groups, such as women and the poor,” the researcher continued. “To control the supply of meat was to control the people.”

Additionally, the researcher claimed today’s meat consumption is linked to popular issues like climate change and environmental degradation.

“In today’s reality, meat is repeatedly the subject of much socially and politically charged discussion, including about how the demand for meat is contributing to climate change and environmental degradation,” said the researcher. “…The growth of vegetarianism and veganism threatens to dethrone meat from its position at the top of the food hierarchy.

That “dethroning” prediction is a reference to a survey that noted a “significant spike” of people were converting to veganism.

Correspondingly, PETA has been waging its own campaign against idioms that “perpetuate violence toward animals” and “normalize abuse.”

“While these phrases may seem harmless, they carry meaning and can send mixed signals to students about the relationship between humans and animals and can normalize abuse,” said PETA on its promotional site.

PETA’s notable reshaping of classic idioms includes: “feed two birds with one scone,” “take the flower by the thorns,” and “bringing home the bagels.”

Earlier this year, Infowars reported that PETA called on people to stop drinking milk because the beverage “has long been a symbol used by white supremacists.”

War on Humans: Animal Rights Would Ban Pets

Animal rights” is often conflated “animal welfare.” But they are not the same—not even close.

Animal welfare accepts that we have the right to own and benefit from the use of animals. At the same time, it posits a positive duty upon us to conduct animal husbandry properly, meeting standards of care that have improved as we have learned more about the nature and capacities of animals. Animal welfare encompasses important issues, such as establishing legal standards for using animals in research, defining the parameters of what constitutes proper and improper care for animals, and establishing shelters for abandoned animals. In short, animal welfare does not ascribe “rights” to animals, but instead places on us—as an aspect of human exceptionalism—moral and legal duties to engage in proper husbandry practices.
