vegan quasi-religious fundamentalists target Hisbe / Brighton Argus

I have decided not to accept speaking engagements at conferences if DxE is also on the platform. The major reason is that I believe it works as a cult. — Carol Adams

An act of unbelievable crass stupidity when vegan quasi-religious fundamentalists target Hisbe, an ethical food store.

Where next, Infinity Foods, a workers cooperative? Maybe not, Infinity Foods bake vegan cakes and where would we be without vegan cakes?

Maybe do something useful, target and shut down McDonald’s or a halal kebab shop.

Or try targeting M&S or Waitrose for wrapping fresh produce in plastic.

The protest at Hisbe was organised by the Brighton faction of DxE that has spread worldwide out of San Francisco Bay Area.

Carol Adams has refused to share a platform with DxE who she has described as a cult

Note: Vegan fundamentalists who harassed and intimidated staff and customers have now been banned from Hisbe. Other ethical stores should follow suit and ban these vegan fundamentalists.

Light on a Dark Mountain

The machine is stuttering and the engineers are in panic. They are wondering if perhaps they do not understand it as well as they imagined. They are wondering whether they are controlling it at all or whether, perhaps, it is controlling them.— The Dark Mountain Manifesto
