Fairway = Foie Gras Fuckers! Volunteers Needed This Weekend

Given the backlash in Chicago, it’s no surprise that the fight to ban foie gras in NYC is getting foodies’ panties in a twist. But this is a new low, especially during the holidays. Fairway has declared itself “Foie Gras Central” and is promoting the hell out of its foie gras products.

Declaring foie gras utterly humane and “one of life’s gustatory pleasures,” the sign basically panders to one of the lowest human impulses—spite—and dares people to buy the product, slinging a loud “Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah” along with their blood money.

Help set the record straight—that includes the fact that we can indeed spell “foie gras” correctly—and join Farm Sanctuary as they leaflet outside Fairway markets in New York this weekend. For more information on how to get involved, e-mail Carol Moon at nyc@farmsanctuary.org.

    If Farm Sanctuary’s campaign didn’t single out foie gras as “cruel” and instead focused on promoting veganism, Fairway wouldn’t be able to say that they’ve visited the farms and that the production is not “inhumane.” Farm Sanctuary has created this problem by basing their campaign on a husbandry issue. One of the talking points of the NYC campaign is “Scientific evidence supports that foie gras production is cruel and inhumane.”

    The public already supports animal welfare. As do animal exploiters. Telling people that something is “cruel and inhumane” is not the same thing as telling them to respect animals by not eating them. Period. As long as animal advocates send this confusing mixed message, people will opt for “humane” meat.

    The alleged ban (that’s not yet in effect) in California depends on whether production is considered “cruel” or not. If industry can pay for studies saying it’s not, the ban will be out the window.

    We have to move the debate beyond cruel and inhumane. It’s not hard to do.
