Obviously, most readers (all, one would hope) of this blog are already down with not killing turkeys or geese or ducks or chickens or any other sentient being in the perverse tradition (yay, we're so thankful, let's go kill something!) that this holiday is usually celebrated in, but this year it may be a tad more difficult to get through the occasion without harbouring thoughts of perhaps doing in your table-mates. Well, it would be for me if I lived in a particular country right now. I don't, and luckily in Canada Thanks-taking is already behind us, but if the situation were different...
I'm referring, of course, to the polarizing US election in which a certain doofus was deigned to be fit for the most important position of the land by about half of its voters. Clearly, I believe their vision and decision was murky at best and catastrophic at worst, and am still upset by what happened. So I can well imagine how folk who actually have to live with the wannabe autocrat in their midst, and the voters who put him into this seat of power, feel.
Now, I'm NOT advocating for violence (cuz that wouldn't be the vegan thing to do), but given that I'm probably more short-tempered and less forgiving than most, I thought I'd let you read a post that made me laugh, and may just help American compatriots who aren't looking forward to supping with certain others tomorrow. :)
Here are some wise words on how to survive this year's Thanksgiving by Marla Rose, the Vegan Feminist Agitator: post-election advice for Thanksgiving. Enjoy.
