Hitler WAS vegetarian

 

Gosh, I do hate it when liberals rewrite history to suit their own perversions. For example, it used to be such fun gently teasing one’s tofu-munching friends about the fact that the world’s most famous vegetarian was Adolf Hitler.

But these days, they always tend to come back with the line – presumably fed to them by the Linda McCartney Bureau of Vegetarian Propaganda – that, no, Hitler wasn’t vegetarian actually, not strictly so anyway, though he did have a sweet tooth, etc.

Oh yeah?

Well his personal food-taster seems to think he was a vegetarian. And she should know, shouldn’t she?

Look, I’ve got nothing personally against vegetarianism (apart from the fact that it involves not eating meat – and as Sarah Palin says: “If God hadn’t meant us to eat animals he wouldn’t have made them of meat”) but I do believe it important that we always cleave to the truth however ugly it may be.

So: let the teasing recommence!

    Hitler was also a Socialist. They don’t like being reminded if that, either.Indeed, pointing out this… Erm… What’s the word? Oh yeah, FACT will get you barred from The Guardian Comments section.

    I do have something against vegetarians. I don’t think they’re vegetarian out of concern for animals (if they were, they would also avoid the agricultural products that kill animals indirectly).

    When I hear someone say, “I’m a veagan,” I take it the same way as the hipster who doesn’t listen to this or that band because it’s “too mainstream”. The message is that “meat (or mainstream music) may be good enough for you rubes, but it’s not good enough for my refined tastes.”

    A vegan diet is great if you’re from Vega.

    Hitler and Paul McCartney are vegetarians, perhaps of slightly different pedigrees.

    Hitler and Obama are socialists, but do have differing positions on how that plays out on the world’s stage. Hitler being more aggressive globally, Obama using drone strikes to address his image.

    Croesus and Biden hoard gold, but because Biden has to list charitable contributions on his tax form, we know that Biden is a charitable cheapskate. Do you think Biden eats cauliflower? Do you care?

    My favorite comment for vegetarians:

    “You know how many dead bunnies it takes to cultivate a field?”

    Not only that, but it takes more acres of land to produce organic food, and more acres of farmland means more natural habitats destroyed. If you really cared about animals, you would swear off organic food, too.

    Technically, picking the fruit (pictured above) does not kill the plants. However, in my vegan cooking, I kill many a Onion and garlic plants regularly :-D.

    I always think of Chesterton and The Napoleon of Notting Hill:

    There was Mr. Edward Carpenter, who thought we should in a very short time return to Nature, and live simply and slowly as the animals do. And Edward Carpenter was followed by James Pickie, D.D. (of Pocohontas College), who said that men were immensely improved by grazing, or taking their food slowly and continuously, after the manner of cows. And he said that he had, with the most encouraging results, turned city men out on all fours in a field covered with veal cutlets. Then Tolstoy and the Humanitarians said that the world was growing more merciful, and therefore no one would ever desire to kill. And Mr. Mick not only became a vegetarian, but at length declared vegetarianism doomed (“shedding,” as he called it finely, “the green blood of the silent animals”), and predicted that men in a better age would live on nothing but salt. And then came the pamphlet from Oregon (where the thing was tried), the pamphlet called “Why should Salt suffer?” and there was more trouble.

    Dogs didn’t like him, or at least his German Shepherd, Blondi, preferred to sit near other people at dinner. Non-vegetarians had better table scraps.

    Hitler was a vegetarian, and St. Francis of Assisi wasn’t. Go figure.

    And Frank Zappa said tobacco was his favorite vegetable. I don’t smoke, but if I do turn vegan that’s the path I’m taking in the hope that the clouds of second-hand smoke will drive away annoying busybodies.

    One of the most interesting things I have ever read is Melville’s description of what it was like to live among cannibals. I think it’s in Typee and it’s clear that these islanders were meat deficient and that their love for “long meat” was nearer to a kind of lust that they tried to hide from westerners. It was a guilty pleasure for them and mostly done by the men of the tribe. 

    (I thought I would add this to spice up this post.)

    The one time I had a chance to really get to a vegetarian, I just couldn’t.

    She was already so miserable, while I got to eat a nice steak with a potato and side salad with dressing she’d already eaten her naked salad (no potato, it had butter already in it) and was chowing down on gummy bears.

    I’m a ranch kid, so I didn’t mind her asking a bunch of questions, even if she was trying to make me feel guilty.

    I finally did ask if she knew what gummy bears were made of; she blinked, looked confused and said “candy?”

    I was tempted, but… I just couldn’t do it.

    Anyone who will make themselves that miserable to avoid milk doesn’t need to know.

    You may quote Palin if you wish, but I believe Ted Nugent (The Nug) said it best: “Vegetarian? I love vegetarians. Heck all of the animals I eat are Vegetarian. “. I rest my case.
