Animalists And Nazis: A Common Hatred For Humanity


WHY NAZIS WERE ANIMAL RIGHT ACTIVISTS

Animal rights extremists (“animalists”) pontificate that humans are no better than mice, or roaches. Whereas humanists believe that humans are vastly superior to mussels. Mussels have no culture. Mussels have no intelligence. 

Animalists retort that human beings have no particular place in the universe, so they have no more rights than animals, who have no particular place in the universe either. Earth’s blue dot in a vast black universe has no particular significance they can discern, so why should humans have any meaning or worth either? 

Nefarious fools and hypocrites ask questions which they know are too stupid to be answered. What are we going to tell them? If you need to ask that question, you do not deserve an answer?

Human with descendant of dinosaurs displaying flight mastery. Animalists will have us believe than the human is not more worthy of consideration than the heron. I love herons, and I want them around, but I love and esteem humans more. (Berkeley, 2/20/2021)

Animalists have apparently not enough culture and, or, intelligence, to afford humanism. They make a show of displaying their virtue by saying they will not hurt any soul… while other humans, who do hurt animals, or are open to the possibility of animals getting hurt, are thus bad… an inferior sort. They themselves hurt animals, like most of us do, indirectly. and often they intend to eradicate entire animal species by depriving them of utility, but… never mind they are busy accusing you, not themselves. 

Animalists, having little culture and not enough history to not know the essential here. They do not know that this tactic of accusing humanity in the guise of worshipping the animals is not new: the NAZIS used it. The Nazis claimed they were animal lovers. To not hurt animals, Hitler was a vegetarian, and, he said, because animals were made to suffer so much [1].

The Nazis passed, to great fanfare, animal rights laws to prove to the world they were good people, of superior moral fiber. In 1933 the Nazis passed laws regulating the slaughter of animals. The suffering of lobsters in Berlin posh restaurants was a particularly sensitive subject. Animals could only be killed after anesthesia. Mistreating your pet could get you two years in prison (especially for opponents of the regime, as Roman emperor Theodosius did with opponents he accused of heresy). The Nazis also banned the forced feeding of ducks to produce foie gras… just as Californians would do later with French delicacies. Hermann Goering announced an end to the “unbearable torture and suffering in animal experiments”. It was let it be known that anyone who treated animals as inanimate property would be sent to a concentration camp. That Nazi animal circus was all for show… and to institute the following dual principles: that Nazis were of a superior moral fiber, as adjudicated by animals, while common humans were no better than animals. So humans could be treated like animals, why not? Animalism as a humanism fit with exterminationism just right. Naturlich.

It is highly likely that today’s animalists also want to make animals out of us, as the Nazis did. Animalism is akin to dehumanization, the worst sort of murderous racism. Once one believes that people are like ants, one has achieved the essence of the worst aspect of Nazism.

So why are there so many animal rights activists of the exaggerated type nowadays? Because they represent the ultimate nihilism which talks. It is the entire freedom they found to protest. Because they are cowards.  In a world they do not understand, master, or approve of, they want to play holier than thou… and are looking for a safe outrage. Also many are simple opportunists, or idiots who believe they detected in science a continual demotion” of humans. Telling human children or their parents that they are worse than flies because they kill flies,while flies do not kill them, is also, for pedophobe sadists, a dream come true [2].

Animalists know, deep down inside that we will not use insecticide to deal with them precisely because we are not, as they are. Nor will animalists commit suicide, as they should, because any human being, even a vegan one, kills animals, day in, day out. Instead, their main mission is to demote humanity and to demote reason, with hypocritical protests which signify only they want the power of mobilizing attention towards their ant-like existence… 

Animalists’ nihilism is thus most useful to plutocracy, its servants and the establishment. Because extreme animalism diverts mental energy towards fake, self-contradictory debates, removed from basic reality. Thus the kleptocratic elite can keep plundering the biosphere in peace, while animalists tell those who try to organize the resistance against feudal forces that they are… worse than beasts.

To save the biosphere from those who are red in fang and claw, one will have to retain common sense. Arguing that those who kill animals, any animal, are worse than beasts is no way to basic smarts. It is the way to Nazi-like lethal lying madness.

[1] Hitler posed an animal lover… As a vegan, the Fuhrer smelled terrible, as he emitted gas all day long, inconveniencing his generals. Also his veganism was so exaggerated he had to take all sorts of drugs, and was completely diseased, with de facto premature aging, Parkinson, etc. People who knew Hitler and were familiar with his diet relate that he did not consume meat as part of his diet during the war. Several witnesses—such as Albert Speer (in his memoirs, Inside the Third Reich)— wrote that Hitler used vivid and gruesome descriptions of animal suffering and slaughter at the dinner table to try to dissuade his entourage from eating meat. An examination of Hitler’s remains carried out by French scientists in 2017 found no traces of meat fibre in the tartar on Hitler’s teeth. Obviously, Hitler was making a show of displaying save-the-animals virtue. It was widely expected that, if the Nazis had won the war, they would have denied killing anybody in any concentration camp (they had dozens of thousands of those, most of them small). They could have pointed to their blatant love of animals.

In Africa I would cover myself with a thick sweater by 45 Centigrade heat (110F) to shelter from tsetse flies, a sort of deer fly. Tsetse carry sleeping sickness, and can fly as fast as a car drives. Sleeping sickness is a dreary disease. African (not European) cattle resist it.

    Cruelty to animals is wrong, but I agree human life is more sacred and of greater value.

      Nearly everybody knows cruelty to animals is wrong, even those involved in it (and that’s exactly why some do it!) The animalists, though, have a different goal: they aim to devalue the human species. This is exactly why the Nazis engaged in animalism so extensively.

      It is a dangerous slope… I do not hesitate to hate very much particular individual humans doing particular things… But I tend to love and forgive and forget a lot… I am open to change and hope, and believe people can change. Passion is good, even love and hate are, but nobody should have passion for a mussel to the point of fantasizing of humanizing it fully…

    “Animal rights extremists (“animalists”) pontificate that humans are no better than mice, or roaches.”

    Animal extermination extremists are killing 80 billion land animals and countless sea animals for the sake of their taste buds while causing climate change and driving our planet to an ecological collapse.

    “Whereas humanists believe that humans are vastly superior to mussels. Mussels have no culture. Mussels have no intelligence.”
    What is so special about culture and intelligence? These things are nothing more than tools for survival. It maybe human brain that will drive us to extinctions, while mussels will survive because of their fast evolution. https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php

    “Animalists have apparently neither culture nor intelligence.”
    Logical fallacy: ad hominem.
    Also, the smartest people, who ever lived, supported moral treatments of animals: Plato, Pythagoras, Socrates, Newton, Einstein, Darwin, Tesla, and many more.

    “They display their virtue by saying they will not hurt any soul, and other humans, who do hurt animals, are thus bad… an inferior sort.”
    Non-human animals, from our perspective, are not moral agents, so it cannot be said that they are bad in moral sense.

    “Animalists, having little culture and not enough history to not know the essential here.”
    The history of vegetarianism:

    “They do not know that this tactic is not new: the NAZIS used it. The Nazis claimed they were animal lovers. To not hurt animals, Hitler was a vegan. The Nazis passed, to great fanfare, animal rights laws to prove to the world they were good people, of superior moral fiber. That was all for show. Naturlich.”

    The Nazis did not abolish experiments on animals. In fact, Nazis were required by law to first perform their experiments on animals before carrying them out on humans. Experiments on humans did not replace animal experiments; on the contrary, animal experiments made them possible. John Vyvyan, in The Dark Face of Science, summed it up this way: “The experiments made on prisoners were many and diverse, but they had one thing in common: All were in continuation of or complementary to experiments on animals. In every instance, this antecedent scientific literature is mentioned in the evidence; and at Buchenwald and Auschwitz concentration camps, human and animal experiments were carried out simultaneously as parts of a single programme.”

    Hitler was not vegan. The term “vegan” was not in existence during his lifetime. Hitler was vegetarian on occasions for health reasons.
    It is our treatment of animals that can be compared to Nazism. “In his thoughts, Herman spoke a eulogy for the mouse who had shared a portion of her life with him and who, because of him, had left this earth ‘What do they know – all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world – about such as you? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. In relation to them, all people are Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka.’” –Isaac Bashevis Singer
    “The Letter Writer” from The Seance and Other Stories

    “It is highly likely that today’s animalists also want to make animals out of us, as the Nazis did.”
    Humans are animals. We belong to the animal kingdom and to the same family as chimps, bonobos, orangutans and gorillas. Humans are genetically closer to chimps than African elephants are to Asian elephants.

    “Animalism is akin to dehumanization, the worst sort of murderous racism.”
    Giving basic rights to other sentient beings is not making humans not human, just the reverse.

    In India all life is sacred and wild animals are left alone in sacred groves where they are not disturbed. In addition all wild animals are vehicles of a god or goddess, for example, the owl for goddess of wisdom Saraswathi ( equivalent of Athena) , this Buffaloe for Yama the god of Paataala ( Hades), Lion or Tiger as the vehicle of goddess Kali (of time) and so on which protects them from being hunted. It is a different civilization!

      Well, maybe, but… Respect for life or not, lions and tigers are nearly gone IN INDIA (African lions are also quickly disappearing, helped by poison…)… Habitat destruction is the main threat to species. Saving the individual animal is distinct from saving the species… and often in conflict!
