    Words Not Pie: The Vegan Response to Lierre Keith

    http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2010/0 ... 641159.php

    It was pretty funny. All in all she's a condescending arse who was a lousy vegetarian in her teen years and became a tool of the Weston A Price Foundation as a part of her midlife crisis. Calls the cops on an Anarchist Book Fair, fuck you lady.

    Haha...That picture was so priceless. I've never heard of her but anyone who would make such attempts at vegan antagonization is an enemy of mine.

    Well I listened to her talk about her book and some of her theories and it didn't sound like bullshit to me when she spoke on agricultural terrorism. The first pie thrower actually slammed her head with the pie and it looked like assault not innocent prank. Calling the police in this case was probably overboard but the force which she was slammed the first time was as well unnecessary. Why wasn't she debated instead? The whole incident seemed lame to me, as I think these type of actions play right into the hands of the naysayers.

    The newest submedia video by the stim has an interview with her and his opinion on the matter. I have to kinda agree why she shouldnt have been pied, but then he also says hell shut the fuck up haha.

    I didnt read her book. But if shes attacking the foundation of growing food, what the fuck are we supposed to do? Or is she just referring to growing on a large scale?

    heres a link to the video...http://submedia.tv/stimulator/

    true

    but sometimes actions speak louder than merely words, even if it is "negative publicity"
    it's not like most people would think of veganism in a postive way and give it a chance to begin with, even with demonstrations and a clear and concise cultural influence to channel the information and ideas regarding animal welfare, because most people either will never care about it or they will never think it's important regardless of animal welfare itself because they are speciests and believe that livestock animals are objects but at the same time treat "cuter" animals that people have as pets as individuals to a certain extent. it's bullshit.

    I read the first 14 pages of her book which are available on her website http://www.lierrekeith.com/ Her ending paragraph from those first 14 pages begins with "That was my last visit to the vegan message boards." Wrapping up her thesis on how she left veganism because of stupid things she was seeing posted on the internet, quickly cemented my opinion of her as being the primitivist answer to Ayn Rand, an absolutionist idiot. She was super heavy mystical about her whole veganism past and I assume was probably a concescending knowital vegan as 19 year old. She reads Endgame, extrapolates some really shitty math from it cause she has no idea what the hell shes talking about, shes just really loud about it, and declares that agriculture must be destroyed. And then goes after the vegetarians because monocropping grain is bad for the soil and they're a bunch of diluted fools because shes come to the light etc. etc. Ignoring the vast majority of grain is subsidized corn from Monsanto and ConAgra that isn't even eaten, its turned into all kinds of shit, and grown to feed the beef and poultry industries, and has nothing to do with vegans. And the whole time she's declaring Agribusiness bad (duh) and pinning it on the vegetarians and giving a complete skip to sustainable farming shes doing it from this condescending "You're smarter because you know me" attitude. Shes not a scientist, shes not even an anarchist, shes just some internet troll that latched on to Derrick Jensen and is really loud.

    Here tho, let her sort of argue for herself:

    I feel like this is something I should have a strong opinion on, but I just don't. I don't care. I wouldn't have pied Lierre Keith but I don't have anything bad to say about the people who did.
