This is a line we just might borrow in the future, but first let’s give credit where credit is due. Yesterday the Los Angeles Times printed a story about this year’s anti-hot dog crusade from the phony, veganism-pushing “Cancer Project” group—itself a spinoff from the misleadingly named Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM, a deceptive animal rights group). Times reporter Jerry Hirsch asked an ordinary woman-on-the-street what she thought about animal-rights leaders trying to force warning labels on a food they wouldn’t be caught dead eating.
Here’s what Irvine, California resident Susan Thatcher had to say:
"Vegans complaining about hot dogs is like the Amish complaining about gas prices."
Amen to that. And here’s a memo for the tofu-stuffed zealots at PCRM: If you want to be vegetarians (or Unitarians, or Libertarians, or even Antidisestablishmentarians), go for it. It’s a free country. We welcome all kinds, including the meatless and the Amish.
But stop trying to meddle in the diets of everyone else. It just makes you look silly.
