Will vegans please just be quiet?

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

I know I’m generalising here, but vegans are doing my head in. 

I know some lovely vegans, but the vast majority at this point seem to be preachy, nagging imbeciles who won’t leave normal alone.

I’m sick of hearing about it, and this story of the Waitrose magazine editor being sacked for a JOKE has pushed me over the edge.

How is it that people can now get sacked for telling jokes in a PRIVATE EMAIL conversation? And to top it off, this vegan stuff seems to be appearing EVERYWHERE. Can’t normal people just be left alone without screeching, anaemic lefties getting involved in our lives?

Thank you for that. I have to agree that people are more aggressive these days in their attempt to share their newfound practices.
He’ll eventually level out. I hope.

Jan G,

First, my sympathies about your Crohn’s although it does sound you are a trooper and are dealing with it well with diet and other means. Godspeed.

I hope I have not given you the impression that I am laughing at my brother’s problems with his Crohn’s, because I assure you I am not. What I found amusing was Jack Buckby’s comments about the fact that practicing vegans (at least some) won’t shut up about it. It is as if the practice of veganism has taken on quality of a religious conversion, not unlike the enthusiasm of a reformed alcoholic going on about their new found sobriety. They have found the promised land and now they encourage everyone else to get baptized in various vegetable concoctions and then go and sin no more.

It is that obsessiveness over their veganism that I find mildly amusing, speaking as a person not quite ready to take the plunge. I am in no way laughing at people suffering from Crohn’s, for whom I have much sympathy. I hope I have clarified my point. Be well.

I also have Crohn’s which is what inspired me to stop eating meat and animals products.
I can laugh at all the vegan jokes, because they are really funny. But in reality, certain medical conditions require you to change your diet.
In 1985 I started investigating the effects of food and the GI system. Today, that is a common conversation. The gut dictates the rest of the body.
Applaud your brother and listen to what he is saying. People used to think I was coocoo and 35 years later agreeing. 35 years later???
Too many people are on steroids for Crohn’s and other IBD (inflammatory bowel disease[s]). Doctors have NO clue about diet and the effects of food on the GI system.
Laugh all you want, but in reality, if you’ve ever heard of that ‘gut feeling’, this is really a gut feeling.
You are what you eat.

You must have had as much wine as I’ve had tonight!
That has to be the funniest. Mark Dice makes me laugh every day, but you topped it.
I’ve been a vegetarian for over 35 years. My father was a butcher!!!! and I grew up loving, loving, loving my meat.
But, alas, I converted. Never regretted it except when I got a craving for a good, thick, juicy hamburger (which is better than chateaubriand bouquetiere- which I have had many, many time, in the past).
You are so funny. I couldn’t stopped laughing.
Remember, BBQ’d chicken smells just like human flesh on fire (been there smelt that), pigs eat their own feces (even the Bible said not to eat pork, for that reason?). I remember my brother saying, when he accompanied my father to a slaughter house, he had never experienced anything so terrible in his life; there was no one tougher than my brother. A friend who was a pork inspector said they aren’t even dead when they start slicing their stomachs and dismembering them. Hate to say what they do to chickens.
Love my tofu? You betcha ya, but I will still laugh with you.

Roughage overdose.

Funny stuff. I have a younger brother who has gone the ‘Full Monty’ on veganism. He is losing weight, although he was never really that heavy to begin with. His main motive however, is that he has suffered in the past with Crohn’s disease, which is a condition where the intestinal tract is inflamed and which consequently causes a host of negative side effects. Apparently the vegan diet (which he has been on now for well over a year) has helped mitigate those negative side effects if not eliminate them entirely. That, in and of itself, is of course a good thing.

The kicker is, in line with what Jack Buckby is on about, is that he won’t shut up about it. He is like a reformed alcoholic who is attending AA and is obsessed with his sobriety and feels he has a mission to bring everybody else in line. That is my brother on a vegan diet. I care about my brother and am not saying that I would cross the street to avoid talking to him; but I confess the thought has crossed my mind.

The Royals in this day and age are little more than tourist attractions but they do earn lots of money for the Country by waving at people. I always have a lot of respect for the Queen and her Sister, Margret. During WW2 they were both out driving ambulances even through air raids and bombings and they both took a course on basic Auto Mechanics as part of their job. The Queen is of German origin and the Duke is Greek.

The disorganization of the human brain by low life socialists is all part of the plan for the introduction of the New World Order.

Vegan, Vegan? what the f…. is Vegan.

Hey Jack, what good is the royal family in the UK? I would think they would stand up for christian values rather than the islamifacation of her military, not to mention kicking young men out of the military for posing with Tommy. Time for the so called ROYALS to stand up or go away.
