Morrissey Is No Fan of ‘Thankskilling’

Morrissey is a staunch defender of animal rights and is vehemently opposed to Thanksgiving which he affectionately calls Thankskilling. While everyone was enjoying their succulent turkeys which were hopefully wrapped in bacon, Morrissey wrote this on his fanzine.

Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny!

As Ingrid Newkirk from PETA points out, turkey ‘meat’ is one of “our nation’s top killers”, causing heart-attacks and strokes in humans due to saturated animal fats and cholesterol. And President Obama laughs.

Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House ‘turkey pardon’ is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry.
And President Obama laughs.

I agree with Morrissey. This is horrific. All that adrenaline makes the turkey taste terrible. A better way would be to kill them instantly by surprise. At least blindfold them so they don’t see it coming. Maybe even put a cigarette in their beaks to calm them down like they used to do for people in front of a firing squad.
