‘The f*cking irony!’: Owners of LA vegan restaurant get deaths threats for eating meat at home

Published

on

Owners of a trendy vegan eatery in Los Angeles are on the receiving end of death threats after an avid advocate of the eating style outed them for slaughtering and eating meat in their home.

According to the LAist, Cafe Gratitude owners Terces Engelhart and husband Matthew are under attack based upon an admission they made on their blog a year ago that — after 40 years as vegetarians and 12 as vegans — they were once again eating meat at their Be Love Farm in Northern California.

On April 21, vegan advocate Leilani Münter tweeted: “Dear Cafe Gratitude, Gracias Madre, Sage – we hear BeLoveFarm is killing animals. We’re upset, to put it mildly. Signed, your vegan fan base.”

Reaction was fast and furious with vegans raging at the couple while calling for boycotts of the couple’s restaurant as well as two others that they are affiliated with. According to the couple, despite assuring fans on the restaurant that it still “100 per cent organic, plant-based cuisine,” they have received death threats.

Fans have also taken to Yelp to trash the restaurant’s reputation, with one reviewer comparing the owners to child molesters.

“It’s like a child molester operating daycare facilities, and why would anyone in good conscience ever want to come back to such a place of hypocrisy!?” Marie from Marina Del Rey wrote.” This is no different from you posting your dog’s photo announcing that you’re going to skin him and eat him. YOU MAKE ME SICK TO MY STOMCH (sic) AND I WANT TO VOMIT ALL THE MEALS I HAD AT THIS PLACE!”

“I will no longer dine at Cafe Gratitude,” Anna C. of Redondo Beach chimed in. “The owners of Cafe Gratitude also operate a for profit animal slaughtering business call “Be Love Farm.” Love?? the f-ing irony. How do you go from ethical plant-based choices to making money on the #1 cause of climate change, raising cattle and slaughtering them for meat?!”

Despite admitting that she had eaten at the restaurant for year, Vered B. now says everything about the restaurant she enjoyed over the years now “sucks.”

“This is a relevant review,” she wrote. “The food sucks. The service sucks. The food is unoriginal, doesn’t taste good, and is overpriced.”

According to the LAist, a protest is scheduled outside the restaurant Friday night.

‘Vladimir Putin has something on Donald Trump’: Ambassador Sherman says the Kremlin must have kompromat

Published

on

Former Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman concluded on Monday that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin must have "something" on President Donald Trump.

"The latest reporting from The New York Times indicates that the thousands of troops that we have there, that the president moved, are now trapped. They don’t have an actual way out since Turkey has cut off the roads and the exit routes that they might use and so now there is the question of will there be an airlift? How will we get the U.S. troops out?" MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked.

"We haven’t had to get troops out like this since the fall of Saigon," Sherman replied. "This is going to be very, very difficult."

Conservative pundit blasts Mattis for not speaking candidly about Trump: He ‘is not a moral hero — he is enabling the criminal to escape’

Published

on

When former Defense Secretary James Mattis announced his resignation in December 2018, many Never Trump conservatives lamented the departure of someone they saw as a voice of reason and sanity in the Trump Administration. Those Never Trumpers were anxious to hear what a post-White House Mattis had to say in an interview with NBC News’ Chuck Todd that aired on “Meet the Press” Sunday. But conservative Washington Post writer and Trump critic Jennifer Rubin, in her October 14 column, stresses that she wishes Mattis were speaking more “candidly” and frankly about his time in the White House and President Donald Trump’s foreign policy decisions.
