Stop Justifying Yourselves!

A Raystede spokesperson said: ‘We are aware of a small but ongoing campaign directed at our staff and trustees by instigators who, despite never having had the privilege of meeting our founder, take the position that she was an active vegan.

‘Our President, who knew Ms Raymonde-Hawkins for more than 20 years, fondly remembers meals out with her where she would regularly eat trout, salmon and a range of dairy-based meals whilst she secured funding and legacies from a wide range of supporters.’

No, no, no! That’s not how you get rid of these nuisances!

It doesn’t matter if your founder was a committed whey-faced vegan or chowed down on steaks every night – the point is, these people have no rights whatsoever to demand you capitulate to their demands!

Raystede opened its doors in 1952 and re-home more than 1,000 animals every year.

You’d have to be mad to find any fault with them, but there’s always one swivel-eyed loon with a massively inflated sense of his own importance, isn’t there?

Vegan campaigner Edward Burbank said: ‘The meat-eating trustees at Raystede, for their own convenience, have chosen to categorise that slaughter of farmed animals as necessary suffering – despite the fact that animal products are now known to be not only unnecessary but detrimental to human health.

‘Certainly no one could call bacon and beef burgers healthy food. So how can those in charge at Raystede justify ordering the deaths of the cows and pigs out of whom they were made?’

The point is, my pasty-complexioned chum, they don’t have to justify it. Not to any outside party, and certainly not to you.

As Longrider points out, the only answer to this sort of demand is ‘No. Now fuck off’.

The campaigners have been bombarding Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare in Ringmer, East Sussex with emails and calls asking them to stop killing animals for its cafe.

Delete the emails, block the senders address, hang up the phone as soon as they start in. If you try to justify yourselves, they will sense weakness. A robust defence is the only way.

    “I don’t care” seems to be a phrase that has slipped into prohibited speech.
    You’re not allowed to not care about a person’s viewpoint, which means you have to consider EVERYBODY’S viewpoint. Which is just chaos.

      Yes. It went from ‘tolerance’ to ‘celebration (or else!)’ really fast, didn’t it?

    So Halal Slaughter is okay then, they haven’t got the guts ( pardon the term ) to take on Ritual slaughter houses to risky.

      Of course they haven’t. Denmark, however, did.

    Raystede haters – would they really prefer it to close? Shooting foot?

    This is a breath of fresh air

    “Norway’s newly appointed health minister has caused controversy by saying people should be allowed to eat, smoke and drink “as much as they want”.

    “My starting point for this with public health is very simple. I do not plan to be the moral police, and will not tell people how to live their lives, but I intend to help people get information that forms the basis for making choices,” she told Norwegian broadcaster NRK in an interview on Monday.

    “People should be allowed to smoke, drink and eat as much red meat as much as they want. The authorities may like to inform, but people know pretty much what is healthy and what is not healthy, I think.” …”

    The fight back against miserable puritans is growing 🙂
