I aspire to receive this type of hate mail.
Take note vegans: This is what a REAL American is supposed to be like. The person who wrote this letter understands the true satan-inspired terror of people who don’t sell any animal by-products and how something like that would piss off God (aka…the REAL one). The world will simply be in chaos until this establishment becomes a Starbucks. Then, and only then, will the world make sense again.
The bible hates vegans. All you have to do is read Ethan 53:14 (It’s the director’s cut).
I only hope they have enough time to pray, as sitting in a basement hugging a rifle meanwhile listening to a police scanner can eat up the hours in a day.

Guys, this is a super-important and totally life-changing public service announcement: You need more hummus in your life. You probably don’t know it yet, but hummus is the answer to all your problems and the only thing you really ever need.

"When someone buys eggs labeled "cage-fgree" or "free-range," they likely came from hens who aren’t in battery cages but who are still overcrowded in miserable, windowless warehouses where the stench of ammonia is overwhleming. They are still painfully debeaked, brutally handled, and they still go to a terrifying slaughter at a young age. And the babies still come from the harsh and heartless hatcheries where the male chicks are cruelly killed [either by being thrown into a meat grinder alive, or being tossed into trash bags to suffocate] by the millions soon after hatching, as they are considered a waste product of the egg industry.
When someone buys dairy products with an “organic” or “humane” label, the cows were perhaps able to go outside for some of their life, but they were still artificially inseminated [using a device called the “rape rack”], kept pregnant their entire short life and were milked well beyond what was ever intended for their bodies naturally. The cow’s baby calf was still taken away soon after birth, never to nuzzle her mother, drink from her udders, or frolic in a field. If the calf is male, he is worthless to the dairy industry and is sold at auction to be killed for veal or some other form of meat. If the operation is organic, sick and diseased cows linger untreated so the milk is not “tainted” with needed medications.
No matter the label, no matter the scale, commercially “farming” an animal for her flesh, milk or eggs is factory farming. If a bird is hatched into this world in a sterile metal drawer without the comfort of her mother hen and a soft nest, that is factory farming. If a calf is ripped from his mother at birth and kept separate from her and other cows, alone and frightened, chained and unloved - that is factory farming. If an animal has her beak burned off, her tail cut off, his genitals ripped out [all standard farming practices done without anesthesia even on so called “local”/”organic”/”humane” farms”] - that is factory farming. If an animal is hung upside down with his throat sliced open - that is factory farming.
Indeed, I would encourage the animal activist community not to use the term “factory farming” anymore because it implies that there is some “humane” farming alternative somewhere that counters the large-scale, industrial operations. By using the term “factory farming,” animal activists have inadvertently contributed to a demand for “alternative” animal products. This is what we have been hearing in the shifting rhetoric of apologies for the animal agricultrual industry when they say, “I only buy … ” - Hope Bohanec of United Poultry Concerns
To summarize, any business, no matter how “small” or “organic”, which relies on the use of a person’s body against their will, which ignores their struggles and their cries, can only ever be cruel. And no matter where they were “farmed,” all animal persons end up in the same place in the end:
The only way to know for sure that you are not contributing to the suffering of animals is to choose veganism!
