Ok. I was about to watch a YouTube clip, when as usual, that random commercial pops up. At first I was about to click skip when all of a sudden this commercial showed these pigs being beaten and tortured in this video below
(viewers discretion is advised)
So here I go on my emotional rant....
Why? Why must we, as homosapiens; why must we,as fellow animals of the earth, feel compelled to inflict such type of pain and suffering onto other living creatures? Seeing the video made my stomach turn, and I was left crying at the end. Crying because I couldn't fathom any sort of reason that would justify these workers at this factory to act the way they do. These monsters obviously have some sort of chemical imbalance going on in that brain of theirs. I mean really, who the hell tosses piglets in the air, slam their bodies into walls, and stomps on them. Who the fuck does that. Who the fuck grabs a turkey by its neck and twists it 360 degrees? Surely no normal person. These people are sociopaths. Incapable of feeling any type of emotion. And just think. If they are able to do this with animals; imagine what they are capable of doing to other people.
Secondly, the conditions these animals are put in. Chickens and other forms of poultry are corralled in these unsanitary living conditions. If one bird gets sick, do you know who fast that illness would spread. And yet they still sell the meat of these birds. Where the hell is the FDA?! They're quick to shut down a burger king because a piece of hair in some fries, but not to shut down a slaughterhouse with birds carrying salmonella poisoning? Pigs and cows are stationed in this pens without any room for mobility. Chickens are stuffed into these small wired cages with dozens of them in there. Damned creatures suffering broken legs from being pumped up with growth hormones causing them to develop faster than their body can match. Which brings up another things; we also consume those growth hormones in these animals.
I find it utterly repulsive the way these innocent creatures have to live out their short lives just for our consumption. That's why I support hunting for food. Why? Because for one, you know your meat did not come from some uncleaned factory, and secondly you give that animal a chance to fight for its life. In a factory they wait to die. In the wild, they have a greater chance to escape. Having cows tied upside down with tons on weight pressing down on their lungs only to have their throats slit and bleed to death. Chickens having their sensitive beaks cuts; pigs being stabbed instead of a simple clean kill. Humans are so fucking awesome aren't we?!
Even typing this journal does not fully express my outermost abhorrence to the subject at hand. I eat meat. I love meat. But I do not support these animals suffering at my expense. Why don't the media take it''s attention way from these whole anti-bully propaganda and show Americans what really goes on between the time that animal entered that hell, to the time it was on their plate.
I value all life. From the whale, to those scary ass spiders that get in my house. I do not rank ones life above another simply on their species or intelligence. A soul is a soul. And we, as people, tend not to see that. Not even among are own species. You see, it's this pondering thought that I've always had as a child. Is man, at his core, truly evil? We must be. We are the only living organism that kill for jealousy, greed, religion, rage, or most of all disturbing, no rationality.
