Don’t expect Morrissey to have a happy Thanksgiving.
The British singer and outspoken vegetarian is blasting both the annual holiday’s menu as well as President Barack Obama for engaging in the traditional turkey pardon Wednesday.
Morrissey dubbed the American holiday “Thankskilling,” adding the murder of so many turkeys each November yields unhealthy food while warming the planet.
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!
…Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House ‘turkey pardon’ is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry.
Livestrong says turkey meat provides a healthy boost of protein, can fight cancer and offers a generous supply of Vitamin B.
