The extent to which non vegan leftists go to justify our treatment of animals is ASTOUNDING.

So obviously most of us know that leftist principles are, equality, anti oppression, compassion etc etc.

Well a fairly popular leftist twitter account has recently become outspoken about veganism and the responses from fellow leftists are mind blowing, so far I’ve seen –

  • it’s survival of the fittest, we’re the dominant species.

  • there’s no way to tell that animals suffer or feel pain any more than plants.

  • being vegan is elitist

  • animals aren’t as smart as humans

  • history is full of humans eating animals

  • it’s only immoral to kill if there are wider social groups effected by the death

  • harming animals is fine because they aren’t moral agents.

  • I just don’t care about animals.

I would expect those arguments from the average person/right wingers. But from LEFTISTS, it’s actually unbelievable to me.
