Leeza’s full quote (Dec 26, 2019): “”Bigotry is violence. Prejudice is not compatible with nonviolence. Speciesism — species profiling — is probably the original prejudice.
Not only has it been the source of unmitigated horror, but the human animal’s speciesist bigotry has rebounded, facilitating all manner of prejudice against anything and anyone “different” in any way from ourselves and our chosen community.
The rebounding of the bigotry of speciesism is, in fact, what has facilitated wars, pogroms, and persecution of “minorities.”
Speciesism has facilitated any and every manner of cruelty toward other-than-human species. Denial prevents the human animal from the acceptance of the truth that speciesism is the root cause: violence against other-than-human animals is the root cause of every horror that befalls…wait for it…the human animal.”~Leeza Coleman
