It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a little activism from everyone’s favorite vegetarian musician, Morrissey. Describing the holiday as “Thankskilling,” the Smiths vocalist wrote in a recent fan zine blog, “Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny! As Ingrid Newkirk from PETA points out, turkey ‘meat’ is one of ‘our nation’s top killers,’ causing heart-attacks and strokes in humans due to saturated animal fats and cholesterol. And President Obama laughs.”
The post goes on to describe the meat industry, greenhouse-gas emission, and the effect of the industry on the environment. But, we don’t want to spoil too much for you. Check it out for yourself right here.
