On Wednesday’s Fox & Friends, a discussion about a recent suggestion by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to alter commonly used idioms that contain themes harmful to animals involved conservative political commentator and podcast host Michael Knowles. He really went there when it came to his dislike of vegans.
“They want to replace ‘beating a dead horse’ with ‘feeding a fed horse.’ And it seems to me that the vegans suggesting these things are a few fries away from a Happy Meal — is that one vegan friendly?” Knowles said. “PETA is telling people to use these new bizarre expressions. But every vegan that I know is in favor of abortion. How many vegans are pro-life? Why do we have to care about the delta smelt but we can’t care about unborn human babies?”
Veganism, which is abstaining from the use of animal products in your diet, is on the rise, according to Knowles, but that isn’t his issue. Rather, he’s worried that veganism is “an inversion of the natural order.”
“More veganism means more veal for me. The problem is the spread of this ideology. And the ideology is spreading. And it’s morally incoherent,” Knowles said. “Animals exist for our enjoyment. The environmentalist left wants us to believe that we exist for animals, to serve animals, which is not true. We like animals, we want to conserve animals, and ultimately we want to serve animals to each other on a dinner plate.”
Fox & Friends airs weekdays on Fox News.
