Yes, often the same scruffy faces are seen at alternative protests/demos, commonly referred to as "Rent-A-Crowd"... ;)

I'm all for people advocating their positions on diets, especially if they have some facts to share. But draw the line at trying to restrict my choices, not to mention outright violence, which only seems to happen with certain groups. I may be wrong, but I don't recall hearing about a bunch of bacon eating keto eaters burning down a vegan tofu factory.  ;D

Which brings me to lunch today. The store had NY strip roasts on sale, so I cut it into four thick slices, roasted one in a slow 225F oven, then seared in a pan with some butter. Medium rare, of course:

I haven't seen a environmental terrorist story in the news since at least a hundred mass shootings ago...    :P

I enjoyed the ones who spent months in tents year round on plywood platforms in redwoods in the Northwest. It was a foolish thing to do, hurricane force winds and torrential snow and rain in the winter, but I gave them points for guts and dedication. One slip when you're pulling supplies up from the support team and that's the end of you.

I didn't like the tree spiking types. Logging is dangerous enough without someone who thinks they're the "Guardian of The Woods" spiking trees and causing one of those heavy duty chainsaws to kick back and cut the operator in half. It's hard to tell how many of the randomly spiked booby-trapped trees are still out there waiting to kill a guy who's just trying to make a living.

Now the PETA girls who would paint their nude bodies like various animals and appear in public places? That should be encouraged.

What part of that was violent?

It wasn't just people carrying signs (that would be perfectly fine), they also broke into meat processing companies.

It's ok for the antifascists to do the same things as fascists yet fancy themselves as antifascists, the end justifies the means you know.

Josh, if you want to compare fascists to antifascists start by naming some.

Edit:

Make a list,   antifascists on the left   8)   fascists on the right    :D

Some good news, support for the "EAT Lancet" diet proposal, which promoted essentially forcing the world's population to adopt a nearly meat free diet, is collapsing. 

"In a press release, the “permanent mission,” as the office is known, also suggested the report was not sufficiently independent, and aimed for nothing less than the “total elimination of the freedom of choice” by consumers."

“There are few exceptions, but the status of epidemiological literature is not at a level to allow us to make these types of very detailed, specific recommendations,” Ioannidis tells me. For that reason, the health claims in the EAT-Lancet diet are “science fiction. I can’t call it anything else.”
