Hmm.
Australian animal rights nuts are very similar to their American counterparts.
They are the spoilt neurotic tyrant brats of the upper middle class each with a worthless arts degree from Karl Marx University - childish, conceited, pretentious and fighting to shove their opinions down the throats of the more happy citizenry, who they hate.

So you think that dressing up in a pig suit and deliberately abusing oneself in public is an acceptable and productive activity? This is the kind of behavior that makes the average person seriously doubt the sanity of the animal rights movement. Sounds like one of Ingrid Newkirk's lunatic ideas. Sorry but the only one making a fool of them self is the person in the pig suit.

<quoted text>WRONG, that is the kind of message that only intelligent, sensible, empathetic people will comprehend. The "average person" who does not comprehend the message is the type of person who prefers to keep their head in the sand. You've just proven that you are that kind of person. Just because you are old, closed minded and refuse to accept that more people are becoming informed and are learning the TRUTH about how their choices are causing the unconscionable suffering and violent deaths of innocent animals. Much to the chagrin of the average ignorant meat eater, more people are becoming vegan every day. Demonstrations like the one that Clare Knight participated in will make intelligent people think and THAT is what makes a difference. People like you don't like whenever anyone is educated on the cruelty involved in using animals.
It would seem to me the very people that you say won't understand this "message" are the ones you want to reach. What good is a message that your target will not understand and most likely interpret as lunacy? It does however make intelligent people think and many of them, like myself, think antics like this are foolish and counterproductive. Educating people about how animals are used doesn't bother me at all. As you know, I'd like to see some things changed too. I just call 'em as I see 'em. Foolishness like this probably alienates more folks than it attracts. What's next? An ARA steaming himself to educate about lobster cruelty? There are better and much more effective ways to educate.

He's a what???
What is he???????
A "speciesist"???????? ??
Bwahhahhahhahhahhahhah!!!!
You are farking batshit crazy HAC.
The species is everything.
It's the difference between a human and a cockroach.
It's the difference between a cockroach and a turnip.
Cows are not human HAC. Sheep are not human either.
They don't think like humans if they think at all.
It's debatable whether they are even conscious.
They certainly have no "souls".
But they are tasty and nutritious and millions of years of evolution has made me, the carnivore, like to eat cows and sheep, the herbivores.
You'd do better to consider you fellow human being HAC than getting upset over a frigging cow or a sheep.

That would be because the vast majority of the population doesn't share your psychiatric disturbance. Perhaps if we all shrink our brains to the size of yours we would have a better grasp of your delusions.

No need to be insulting! I thought we had agreed to converse in a civil manner. So now I'm "dense" because I disagree with you and my opinion differs from yours? I lack neither compassion nor empathy however, unlike you, I am a realist not an idealistic dreamer. I don't "murder" anyone, murder is a term that is defined as the unlawful taking of a human life. Getting back to the point, what I'm saying to you is that when an ARA pulls a stupid stunt, like the one being discussed, the majority of people (both intelligent and not so intelligent) find it to be just that........a stupid stunt authored by someone with mental issues. It is an extremely ineffective way to get your message across unless your message is.......Hey! Look at ME, I'm an idiot. For someone who claims to be intelligent, you sure do miss the point a lot. For someone who claims to be compassionate and empathetic you certainly don't show any compassion to those who disagree with you and you completely miss the mark when it comes to empathizing with how non ARAs perceive stupid stunts by ARAs. If you truly believe that the over 95%(I'm being kind here) of the world population who are not ARA minded will NEVER get your message.......why do you keep shouting it at deaf ears? Or could it be that you and the AR movement are presenting the message in such a manner as to alienate the majority of humans on this planet and that is why it falls on deaf ears?

BAC,

There are many people out there who, like me, would see some things changed and agree that factory farm animals should be treated better. Those people, like me, will never become vegan and don't believe animals have rights. Do you categorize people like that as being unintelligent and lacking empathy? Is it unintelligent and lacking empathy to be a realist and understand the natural order of life?

The problem with veganism is it also involves abstaining from reality.

I think that veganism can be practiced within the realm of reality as long as it is approached as one personal dietary choice among many viable and acceptable dietary choices. It is the "animal rights" philosophy that espouses an abstinence from reality. Like I've said before, there are vegans who feel that it is simply a dietary choice with certain perceived benefits to them and then there are vegans who only became vegans because it is the mandatory diet of the "animal rights" extremists. The former are sane, social, and acceptable. The latter are not entirely sane, antisocial, and unacceptable. IMHO

Meat consumption is up every year as well. It's called population growth.
The thing is, that you are a very small fraction of the population. Vegan population growth is of no concern to me and I suspect very few meat eaters. It's the lunatics such as yourself that support the terrorist acts of your brethren. The lies and deceptions that ultimately harm innocent people.
A good case in point would be one of the couples that had their babies die due to malnutrition. All from trying to follow a vegan diet and believing the hype that you loons feed to people without any regard the outcome. You sell them blue skies without the warnings of some very serious pitfalls.

<quoted text>Tell me, do you consider people who are against ALL child abuse to be "extremists"?? How about people who are against ALL rape and murder, are they "extremists"?? You throw the words "extremist", antisocial, not sane and unacceptable at anyone who extends their concerns, compassion and empathy to ALL sentient beings. Just because you don't give a dam' about certain animals doesn't make me or anyone else who cares about ALL animals "antisocial", not sane, or unacceptable. Just because YOU don't give a dam' about the animals that you don't deem worthy of living without harm or from being murdered by humans, does not make me or anyone else who CARES about ALL animals, to be anti social, human hating 'whackos' as you would like to label us. The FACT is that you are somehow threatened by people who are living proof that humans do not need to consume animals. You can call me an extremist all you wish because when it comes to abuse, torture, rape and murder, I don't waiver because all of these are 100% WRONG.
Every VEGAN is living proof that humans do not need to consume animal corpses or secretions. It takes intelligence, compassion/empathy to be vegan and there are more people becoming vegan every day. Better get used to it.
Murder and child abuse do not exist in the natural order. A predator will take prey young or old and it is not murder or child abuse. Animals will kill other animals, young or old, to protect territory and it is not murder or child abuse. Animals will mate with other animals of the same species, young or old, and it isn’t sexual abuse. These concepts only exist in the minds of humans. Comparing humans and animals in this manner is an exercise in futility. Animals neither know nor care about our laws. If you wish to adhere to your philosophy and leave others in peace......you are not an extremist. If you insist that you and those like you are the ONLY ones who are right and the other 95%+ of the human population is wrong and MUST come around to YOUR way of thinking........you are an extremist. Extremists are elitists who denounce anyone who doesn't believe EXACTY as they do and they are willing to use force to get their way. Sound familiar? I am not "somehow" threatened by people who are successful at not eating meat, I don't really care nor is it any of my business what you or anyone else eats. I am threatened by extremists who are willing to kill me because I eat meat and hunt. There is no "somehow" about it as you well know. I have had my life threatened right here on these threads by AR extremists. The rhetoric of the AR leadership calls for killing fellow humans. I didn't make this stuff up and you know it. Or do I need to post the comments of Jerry Vlasik and Gary Yourofksy again? They are EXTREMISTS who are willing to kill people to get their way by their own definition. See the difference? If you “educate” people about veganism and leave them to make their own choice based on their knowledge…….that’s fine. If you shove your philosophy down the throats of everyone you come in contact with, condemn those who chose not to follow your example, threaten them with violence and extortion, and generally attempt to force people to your way of thinking…………you are an EXTREMIST.

Hey HAC, why don't you post your own name on these forums ? Because you are the true coward, of course. You are such a sad case. The fact that you are oblivious to your mental illness makes you all the more dangerous to the people around you.

As for your "life being threatened" on internet forums, then you should report it. I have lost count as to how many times my life has been threatened by scumbag hunters over the years. Words on forums are rarely capable of inflicting actual physical harm or death, but hunters threaten anyone who speaks out against their blood lust and they do it OFTEN.
speaking of cowards, did you happen to notice that some of your pals have been crying to the topix mods again? talk about hypocrisy, your pals bitch and whine day and night and then they cry to the mods to delete my right to free speech. great bunch of cowards you pal around with and they prove what COWARDS they are whenever they cry to the mods. proof that I AM a threat to them.
Every vegan is an anorexic pallid sickly creep with mental problems.
You just refuse to accept this.
