Paul McCartney - Glass Walls (Disturbing)

WARNING: THIS IS A VERY DISTURBING VIDEO. But I think it's a necessary video for the public to see, to help put a stop to factory farms, which is why I'm posting this.

"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian." -- Paul McCartney

Please help put the factory farms out of business by going either vegan; pescetarian; or, if you eat meat, buying Certified Humane animal products only -- and please share this video. Thanks and Happy Easter.

I worked in a slaughter house once. It wasn't like this.

It was about as humane as a industrial killing process slaughtering a few thousand a day can be. Cold, mechanical and yet considerate.

The pigs were always kept in groups as being herd animals they get nervous and dislike being on their own. They were walked into a chamber which then filled with nitrogen and C02 they painlessly fell unconscious never to wake.

Though I never saw this process, we were instructed upon it, when I saw them they were bacon.

Nothing was wasted, stinking silo's were filled with ominous fluids for medicines ect.

I, on the other hand, saw the process...

I worked 2 summers at a hog slaughterhouse including a couple weeks driving hogs into the gas chambers.

To be fair, 90% of the hogs went through the process exactly as you describe, mostly painless and humane.

But I saw severe abuse daily.

I wrote a pretty detailed comment more recently than yours detailing the process and what I saw. Check it out to see how the process actually works.

I'm a little surprised you didn't see it as part of orientation. The plant I worked at made everyone see it on a plant tour, even if you were going to work in a end-processing station.

There are definitely a lot of misconceptions about the process overall, including that a lot of the hog is wasted, as you touched on. I was amazed at the efforts that were taken to use absolutely everything from the hog for something or another...lining inside the stomach was scraped off and used in digestive medications...amazing.

I try to eat only natural

I try to eat only natural foods whether meat or vegetarian. Free range chicken, game, etc. There is a lot of urban overpopulation of pigeons and squirrels. Why don't we eat them instead of eating animales from these concentration camps?

Abu Ghraib is much worse, they torture for years.

The hypocrisy of worrying about cows when our governments are killing men, women and children daily is disgusting.

Free includes debt-free!

That false logic implies:

Those who care about the cruel torture and murder of billions of animals annually, don't have any care about others who also suffer cruel torture and/or murder, ie. said "men, women and children."

In most respects, that couldn't be further from the truth. I ask you kindly to please not say anything else so foolish again.

I reject your straman fallacy.

The sentience of humans is not in question.

For cruelty and torture to be effective sentience is required.

Food from terrified animals is of lower quality and therefore lower price unless government interferes.

Humans are tortured and killed, I don't see how that is possible with livestock.

Free includes debt-free!

Straman, huh? Okay, Spelling Bee champ.

Your comment is the most incompassionate and nonsensical reply yet posted in this thread. So yeah, congratulations. You essentially say, "They're just stupid, dumb animals, therefor being cruely tortured doesn't count. They don't think like humans." Idiocy. They are all sentient beings to varying degrees, they're just obviously not as "smart" as you [think you are], so in your world, anything goes right?!

And yeah, animals don't feel any pain, so getting smashed repeatedly with weapons, for example, is nothing; and animals who roam freely in nature, don't feel stresses of being confined to tiny spaces, it doesn't matter if they're caged like that their entire short life 'til they're slaughtered, and many having been beaten while captive in their cage isn't worth a mention either. They're just stupid, dumb animals. They also don't feel anything when being slaughtered - they aren't "sentient."

You're a clown, Paul_S.

Should we treat you like an animal?

"Idiocy. They are all sentient beings to varying degrees, they're just obviously not as "smart" as you [think you are], so in your world, anything goes right?!"

They aren't human beings.

He made a great point in asking why do some people scream about human on animal cruelty when they turn a blind eye to human on human cruelty. That doesn't make him a clown, it makes him something that refuses to treated like one.

Human beings have dominion over all the animals whether you know it or not, but that doesn't mean we act in a cruel fashion or destroy them all. It just means they're ours to do with as we please. Comparing people to animals is cruel in my book, because it hints at the fact that you think have dominion over people.

Animals certainly have emotions and feel pain, but that won't stop me from eating them, and if you aren't careful, you'll convince me that you're just an animal as well, something that can be controlled through your emotions and through pain.

Maybe that's why you thought you could control him by calling him an incompassionate idiot and a clown? You thought you could win by causing him pain?

Who's turned a blind eye?

I hope you don't mean nobody should ever mention the torture of animals in factory farms because there are humans suffering.

Nobody that I know has turned a blind eye to human suffering. It's all over DP, as well I think it should be. But this particular thread is about animal suffering. If you don't want to hear about animal suffering, then you should not have bothered visiting this thread.

Oh great, another one of these videos.

I don't take anything this piece of shit has to say seriously. He was knighted by the Queef of his homeland and he's just downright an occultist. Are we all supposed to stop eating meat because they show a few operations where the animals are treated like crap? Oh my, that must mean all of those places in the world operate like that! Saying that not eating meat is a feminine thing to do is an insult to females. It's just downright moronic. Become some vegan/vegetarian, lower methane emissions (sarcasm), lose your libido, shrink your brain, and fall right into globalist plans.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

"fall right into globalist plans"

while they all eat grass fed, GMO-free grain fed, non-vaccined animals and nonGMO veg and grains and fish!

Did you bother reading what I said?

I said vegans/vegetarians...

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

It's worse than disturbing, it's disgusting.

I couldn't be vegan or strict vegetarian, although I have had bouts of vegetarianism. I like meat. Almost any of the meat I buy is organic free range and I rarely eat meat from any fast food restaurants.

I remember years ago seeing factory farming imagery at a pro-animal website. There were a few images from an egg farm, where only the female chicks were kept, the male chicks thrown by the hundreds and hundreds into piles of other dead male chicks. It might have been this image http://www.mfatv.com/LargePhotos/ca_chicken_3.jpg or an image like it.

"Because male chicks will not grow up to lay eggs and, therefore, have little value to the egg industry, 260 million are killed each year upon hatching. Methods include being sucked through a series of pipes onto an electrified “kill plate,” being ground up alive and fully conscious in a “macerator,” or being gassed."

Factory farming is so inexcusably cruel.

that's not going to make me a vegetarian

but it does make me for sure certain that if I am going to eat meat it should be raised humanely, preferably on a permaculture

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Factory Farmers are pro-Amnesty...

just like Rubio/McCain/Graham.

Because the work at these slaughterhouses is so inhuman, they import, and encourage importation of employees to work the grizzly business.

This is what happens when...

... big corporations are in charge of the food supply instead of your local farmer. I won't stop eating meat. However, I am, and would encourage everyone else, to try and stop supporting FOOD INC. by buying good quality local meat.

I used to recommend going vegan...

But after two years of being a strict vegan, I ended up with some problems. I won't go into them, but I now believe the best way to eat is in moderation. The best way to slaughter is in a humane compassionate way with the animals feelings in mind. If you do both everyone would have the best of health and a happy life for the animal.

Some can eat total vegetarian/vegan without any problems so if you feel strongly about it then give it a try. But also be honest with your body if things go wrong.

It's an age-old strategy of wanna-be tyrants

Keep the masses malnourished.

Thanks for the vid

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Lets petition Congress to

Lets petition Congress to pass a law to ban these slaughterhouses...or better yet, lets get the President to sign an Executive Order!

I felt like that needed to be said, so we won't get carried away...

Huh?

Fuck Congress and the dictator in chief.

It's sad

Paul McCartney is nothing more than a PETA spokes hole.

This video is horrible, but

Since I have no intentions of giving up meat, I do what I believe to be the next best thing... I raise my own. Not only does that ensure they are treated well and have a good life, it provides us with hormone/antibiotic free meat and I know they are slaughtered in the most humane way possible. I absolutely HATE to slaughter/process chickens. I cried the first couple of times, but I would rather do it myself than contribute to something like this.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

just found this

maybe it doesn't add to the conversation, but it's interesting. I never heard of it before.
"Pellagra is not something doctors come across very often, which is great as it’s a debilitating disease that can be fatal if not treated. It’s caused by a deficiency of niacin, vitamin B3.

Niacin can be found in foods that provide protein, something that may well be lacking in the diets of the majority of people in a post-collapse world. Most preppers store nuts, dried fruits and legumes all of which contain niacin but the population at large do not and this will invariably lead to problems. The best sources of niacin are beef, game, lamb, poultry and seafood."

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

Unfortunately

The nutrition scare by the gov bureaucracies never seem to end.

First it was protein
Then it was iron
Then B12
Now B3?

All of these scares follow the same pattern and serve only to scare us long enough until the next one comes along.

If you bothered to read the article you linked to you would find the underlying cause to the deficiency is the way the maize was grown - that is, BIG AGRA MAKES OUR FOOD SICK. And then we find that SICK FOOD MAKES US SICK.

I've known a lot of vegetarians, none of them ever were concerned about B3 deficiencies because most vegetarians do not eat big agra crap and are thus getting more nutrition. For instance, a handful of organic MUSHROOMS gives you an EXCESS of B3 - Do you have to be vegetarian to get this nutrition?
No, but chances are you will be more educated in what you are eating instead of posting misinformation like the above.

Why the attitude?

Your snarkiness isn't winning me over. It's also unneccessary and uncalled for. Or are you the omnipotent/omniscient Oz who knows everything?
Your assumption that I didn't read the article is bogus and insulting. But that was probably your intention. That ZERO in your name suits you.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

Not a ZERO

Call my facts and evidence whatever you want, unless a stronger argument replaces them the ad hominems are left to be forgotten.

And that's not a zero ;^)

Tragedy of UN-FREE CRONY CORPORATE markets

This is what happens when our food "safety" is the responsibility of a centralized government agency instead of the producer being held directly responsible to the customer. If the marketplace were free and open we would see a return to responsible animal husbandry as displayed by Joel Salatin

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Thomas Jefferson

Some would say

This is freedom to do business in its purest form and while there many fine and honorable people in agriculture there are also many degenerate ones that need to be institutionalized imo. this is why I avoid fast food chains.

Reap what we sow. God have mercy on us.
