"Not a fan of Unabomber" by Bertrand Guély, retail expert.

Not a fan of Unabomber.

“When the hares declared equal rights between animals, they wanted to ostracize the lions; they didn't answer, but they bared their teeth ”.


Ostracism (or the other racism?) Is too often the posture adopted by those who confuse conversion and repression for their ecological struggles.

A 4x4 in our beautiful city center being pedestrianized? Catch it, Hidalgo offers a reward for each head of driver, but above all make sure that this rich bastard pays before the annual tax on polluting vehicles, the toll to be able to enter the city and the 57% tax on fuels! If the government wants, with the approach of the elections, to continue to water its voters assisted with large blows of 'checks something' without provisions, it cannot either afford to stifle its winners ... A nice medium rib of beef rare when we can stuff ourselves like a goose on imported GMO soybeans? Sentenced to receive L214 lashes - vegetable leather straps of course - in public places! Be careful, remember to book because, with unfaithful women, lazy schoolchildren in Catholic schools and housewives under 50 who are trendy catwoman, a lot of time slots are already taken. How, does she still dare to wear makeup with this brand of cosmetics which would still be tested on animals? We're going to give him the same smile as in the Joker! What, we found an old bullfight ticket -place in the 'Sol' stand because he doesn't have a lot of money for his passion - in his jacket pocket? We are going to crucify him with 4 banderillas and we will make a stew - just one serving - with his Rabo !

The debate on ecology sometimes turns to the primary and sterile stigmatization of the disbelievers by the believers, of the polluters by the cyclists, of the viandards by the vegans, of makeup by the unvarnished, well, of the wicked by the good guys!

In the process, it is difficult to find your little ones between the good and the bad, so many believers claim to be, depending on their degree of fanaticism ... forgiveness, sensitivity for the cause, a multitude of chapels and different denominations ranging from 'I will sometimes at mass on Sundays, but that's it ', at mass in Latin, headbands and boy scout shorts, until the most frosted illuminati, wearing hair hair hairshirt and consecrated rosary.

This tendency to blacklist, supposed to be thinner than a middle finger stretched out high, excited by social networks where it is easy to laugh without risk, warm behind your screen, very quickly shows its limits and does not ultimately not used much.

3 main reasons for this:

  • 1- Depending on the trends and the news, the hero of yesterday may very well be the outcast of tomorrow. An example? In an attempt to continue to communicate the positive and hide its loss of market share in France, this leader in Mass Distribution was one of the first to launch Bilan Carbone labeling on its private label products. And onlookers to frolic at the time, without being sure to understand the famous labeling as the calculations are subject to debate. Today, the same group is pilloried for its meat sector, supposedly responsible for deforestation. King for a day, fool for a lifetime.
  • 2- We happily mix up the cause and its effects and it is no longer even a question here of knowing which of the chicken or the egg, the egg itself being moreover banned by vegans ... In what way certain things would they have become intrinsically and in their entirety ashamed when it is just excess that raises the question? Eating meat is not a crime for the moment (although the gadjo would like to protect the hedgehogs more!). Producing it in a too industrial way and slaughtering animals without preventing them from suffering is one of them. Unless, of course, if it's halal. Yes, but this is not the same… Is an animal rights activist who eats halal meat schizophrenic? Is a vegan who feeds canned food to his doggie bipolar - in the process of melting - masochistic tendency? You have 4 hours.
  • 3- And above all, where are the alternatives? No, no, let the anti-bullfights calm down: I'm not talking about taking the alternative but giving it! Fewer cars in cities therefore, and therefore, to continue moving, more… more of what first? From the foul metro or you have to slalom, like La route du rom, between minor pickpockets, rubbers and all those stressed out in life? Buses or the drivers are being massacred by gangs for having dared to ask these scum to pay? By bike or do we risk the strike at each crossroads? A scooter that still does not know how to choose, like a runaway teenager, between the road and the sidewalk? Do you want people to leave their cars to pollute less? Very well. Offer them clean, safe, fun alternatives and it will work. Another example? Do you want animals to be slaughtered with dignity? Well, let's stop the price war and the kamikaze promotions of the distribution brands, pulling everything down and sometimes forcing to work with the Slaughterhouses held to the economy by the Leatherface family. And yes my good lady, if the slaughterhouse is no longer strangled (sic) by its customers and the charges to be paid, it may be able to work with dignity. So put away the hysterical teenage megaphone and pull out the truly responsible consumer checkbook ...

This new Inquisition, also believing to work for good, is as dangerous as that which tortured, raped, burned people, simplistic judgment and expeditious punishment rendering justice this time in the name of the almighty Green God.

Excess harms everything and the hateful virulence of some ecologically furious is undoubtedly doing more harm than good to the cause.

Finally, these bile-eaters make you think a little of Zemmour: intelligent (but without AI) and cultivated (without pesticides of course) but unfortunately putting these undeniable qualities at the service of the only scare, alarmist observation, following a deafening silence in the time to move on to solutions.

It's ridiculous to think that the future of our planet will brighten up thanks to these weed-eating purists, sometimes also smoking, with sweaters made from recycled PET bottles and shoes made of banana peel soles (a shame). !).

Rather than shooting at anything that moves other than a bamboo bike or sand yacht, they should explain and convince that there are real alternatives.

Not won because, of course, it is more difficult to be John Kitting than the pompous old round of leather who wants to impose his diagram on poetry ...
