Joaquin Phoenix Seems To Support Terrorist Organization
Joaquin Phoenix leveraged his Oscars’ best actor speech to condemn the dairy industry. The Joker star consistently condemned meat-eating, while promoting veganism, throughout Hollywood’s treasured award season. But now people are questioning if Phoenix’s views are becoming too extreme for comfort.
Last October at The Joker premier, Phoenix’s hoodie donned “Support the Animal Liberation Front.” And that’s a big problem.
The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) is widely considered a terrorist group. Back in 2004, FBI deputy assistant director, John E. Lewis recognized the group as a domestic terrorist threat.
The FBI estimates that ALF, alongside its related network, Earth Liberation Front, has committed at least 1,100 criminal acts amounting to $110 million in damages. One of its core crimes is arson. They lit buildings on fire an astounding 239 times. At one point, PETA infused ALF’s arson defense team with $70,000.
ALF’s motto is simple: You don’t drink milk or eat meat. If you do, you pay the price. ALF intimidates corporations and it’s workers into backing down from any use of animal products.
Phoenix’s award show political rhetoric tour was, to say the least, unsettling. But now we must question what the actor feels is acceptable retribution for those people who drink milk. When you advertise a brand on a red carpet as Phoenix did with ALF, you make a statement regarding how you view the world. And it seems Phoenix now views the world through a model that utilizes terrorist acts to get his way.
Phoenix says that eating animals is “absurd and barbaric.”
“I think that we’ve become very disconnected from the natural world and many of us, what we’re guilty of is an egocentric world view — the belief that we’re the center of the universe,” he said during his Oscars’ speech.
“We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow, and when she gives birth we steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal.”
Dairy farmers responded to Phoenix’s speech, calling it reckless and irresponsible.
“You should get out of Hollywood for a while,” dairy farmer Carrie Mess from Lake Mills, Wisconsin, wrote on her blog. “The natural world isn’t there, it’s out here and it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.”
Phoenix is a shining example of elitist Hollywood figureheads helping to drive a wedge in America. People are tired of being lectured by those who take private jets to dinner, or have SUV drivers shuttle them around town. The fact is, Phoenix loses nothing in being vegan. He has the absolute best medical care, chefs, and caterers. He’s disconnected from real life in his fantasy land.
