Animal Cruelty in China? Nothing new here. Except that the West condones and funds it

The anti-fur movement was the big, trendy thing of the 90s. While campaigning against animal cruelty still takes place today in the form of protesting inhumane meat abattoirs and random acts of cruelty, nowadays it seems so “oldskool” to campaign against wearing fur that it’s almost “not cool” to do it anymore. It’s kind of become the Occupy Wall Street of the animal rights world: only severely left-wing hippies can do it.

I for one am surprised people who don’t live in Arctic or Antarctic regions still even wear fur. Thankfully, I don’t know anyone personally who dares parade in front of me with real fur on.

This is why I’m thankful for people like Olivia Munn. She is a high-profile comedic actress who has just released a new video onto YouTube, exposing once again, the problem that just won’t go away: Fur-farm animal cruelty in China.

As the video above says, China is the world’s largest exporter of fur, fur trim and fur trinkets, and this is globalisation at it’s worst.

The investigators filmed animals that were kicking and writhing as workers ripped their skin from their bodies. If the animals struggled too much, workers stand on the animals’ neck or they beat the animals’ heads with knife handles.

It is a very slow process conducted by robotic humans devoid of emotion, compassion or feeling, compelled by a simple drive to make cash at anyone and anything’s expense. This is the worst side of overpopulated communism, and with China in particular, trying to sustain such a massive farce always comes at the cost of nature.

Olivia Munn is of Chinese descent, and I think even she would have to admit that China is unsustainable, the way it is. The only way they can hold onto their nation is to lobotomize the nation’s empathy and consideration for all other creatures.

The ironic thing here is that no working class Chinese citizen will ever be able to afford such a fur luxury. These unnecessary prizes go to the adorned shoulders and necks of Daddy’s Little Princesses around the wealthy Western world. Little does she know that the scarf she wears probably came from an animal still alive post-skinning, breathing in ragged gasps and blinking slowly. Little does she care.

One part of the video above shows a skinned raccoon dog, tossed onto a heap of carcasses, with just enough strength to lift its bloodied head and stare into the camera. Such images are too unpleasant to be watched by delicate, preciously protected human eyes, so we turn away, don’t press play, laugh it off and say there’s nothing you can do now anyway, so why watch? What can you do?

You can get mad. Then you can go here:

They don’t get to have fancy banners like Wikipedia, pleading for money every year. They work off awareness, and people getting mad and disgusted by this sick world we live in. Sometimes, you have to get  mad.

Animals don’t have voices, which is why I’m using mine. Next time I’m asked what my pet hate is, I think I’ll say “people who wear fur yet refuse to watch what they’re directly promoting and just remain ignorant”. Sure, people will probably scoff and mumble something about me being a neo-hippy, but the small fall in “trendiness dignity” is worth it for a powerful human like me compared to condoning mass brutal slaughter of a weak and powerless animal. It’s one thing to kill an animal humanely, out of need… it’s another thing altogether to kill it like you don’t give a fuck.

So, please, if you know someone who wears fur and when you tell them about this they just go “hehehe LOL ohh i kno itz bad but LOL it’s soooo comfy and looks soooooo sexy lololol” …please, bludgeon them hard in the face.
