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

Published

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.

Published

According to a report from the Washington Times, Maryland Republicans are up in arms after an AP history teacher at a local high school used a slide to illustrate similarities between Donald Trump's policies and those of the Nazis.

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"

Stop praising anti-Trump evangelicals: Their embrace of authoritarianism is a big part of the problem

Published

on

At this critical moment for American democracy our media landscape is doing a poor job in its coverage of conservative white evangelicals. Coverage of this relatively large segment of the population is characterized by, on the one hand, effusive praise for the slightest milquetoast criticism of Donald Trump, and on the other, by a periodic parade of nearly interchangeable unfounded predictions about how evangelical youth are going to change America’s most radically right-wing demographic for the better—any day now. In the words of the great sage Bullwinkle J. Moose, “This time for sure!”

Intel official who briefed lawmakers on latest Russian meddling targeted for ouster by Trump White House: CNN

Published

During a discussion on the war on the intelligence community being waged by the Donald Trump's White House, CNN host Victor Blackwell stated that sources speaking with the network stated that the intel official who briefed lawmakers for both parties on new efforts by Russia to meddle in U.S. elections could be on the way out.

Speaking with contributor Lynn Sweet, Blackwell asked about the so-called "purge" being conducted by the White House.

"It sends the signal once again that President Trump is not a respecter of the United States intelligence services with the bigger issue that a permanent director has not been in that office since last summer when Dan Coates was forced out," Sweet explained. "This is a key position, subject to Senate confirmation and Trump hasn't seen fit to have a permanent director for months now."
