FAIL: Temple Grandin Wins 7 Emmy Awards

August 30, 2010

Such a lovely place to die “humanely” … I’m certain she is very happy, joyous even, to be there.



Editor’s Note: American Humane Association is congratulating Temple Grandin‘s “win” at the Emmy’s. Wow.

What is also interesting is that “TIME Magazine honors her as one of the ‘100 People Who Most Affect Our World'”.

Allow me to repeat: “OUR world …”

This is not a victory, this is a perversion. With such accolades as “hero”, “triumph”, and now some dippy statue-times-seven, Temple Grandin endorses animal torture and murder, as long as it is defined as “humane”, and now people will look to her and this biopic as a guidepost for exemplified empathy and contemporary compassion.

What absurdity.

I understand that many honestly believe this is a promotion of consideration; due to being ill-informed from duplicitous banalities and solicitous-sounding lies, as well as being indoctrinated into the global cult of animal commodification, many people do not understand the very foundation of animal abuse and the ethical response to such, especially considering the gross discord between companions and those butchered immorally for food/fashion/fun/pharma.

But ask yourself this: who are the ones defining and who are the ones dying?

The fact that animal organizations and societies honestly endorse this utter nonsense emphasizes the other fact that people are concerned with human animals rather than non-human animals; it is a human orchestration to extend judicious parameters to that which, fundamentally, cannot be considered fair. It is an impossibility – logically, emotionally, philosophically – to imprison and murder in a just manner. Yet those crafty, self-indulgent, speciesist humans can now magnanimously claim “compassion”. They can now champion themselves on such gracious nods to those weak, subservient, and used commodities – animals – because that is what they are considered. Commodities. And commodities are, by their very definition, products, and NO person, sane and logical, can empathize with commercial intangibles. But Temple thinks she can, and now billions will cheer their ability as well. And they will do so hugging themselves with “self-effacing” righteousness and in a socially-rewarding manner: people enjoy living in a culturally progressive society, one that can pride itself on its civilized and empathetic mores and manners.

It is an industry hyperbole to nobody but those who care, and those who are cheering, those raising their glasses in a metamorphic devolution from indifference to murder do not understand compassion beyond what their knives can cut. The obscenity is that they attempt such via glossy images of happy products winding to happy heavens. Only the most wretched and perverse who knowingly commodify life rather than appreciate it can understand the viciousness with which they work, for they see their products and they plan their demise with critical coldness and damning denial because upon admission that they are not products comes the discomfort of ethical itching: life so similar to ours, sentient and exploited and stolen, cannot be extinguished or conformed.

That they are not products, or profits, or items demands reconciliation with the diet at least and the ethic at most. Indeed, they are sentient beings, who love, fear, suffer, feel pain, and are intrinsically special, incapable of being owned and used. Yet humans define them and thus humans define what is considered humane for them. Yet only humans can attempt to humanize products with corrupt emotions and terms while refusing, rejecting even, that which is blinding: how do you define suffering, blood, and murder as humane?

You cannot. You can just make movies about people who pretend to so that you can pretend you believe it.

Congratulations. It is most definitely 2010.

I heard a rumor that in countries with populations exceeding 200 million humans, governments will begin implementing mass culls/euthanasia/kills to curb resource shortages. Temple Grandin is designing the manner in which people will die in the People Slaughterhouses. But don’t worry: it will be humane.


Please stop embracing excuses that only benefit YOU. That ham, chicken leg, milkshake, and cheese curd is a murdered, sentient being, regardless of fancy definitions or miniature statues. Veganism is the ONLY humane lifestyle, the ONLY humane response to Temple Grandin and all the other vicious savagery that is CAUSED by the human animal as perpetrated on the non-human animal.

    WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SICK THING STILL DOING HERE. DIDN’T THAT GOVERNMENT TAKE CAR OF THE ABUSE YET. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT MENTALITY. THEY NEED HELP. ANYONE THAT WORKS TO SLAUGHTER ANIMALS ARE TO BE LOOKED AT VERY CAREFULLY. IMAGINE IF THEY LOST THEIR TEMPES WHO IS NEXT A CHILD ANOTHER ANIMAL ON THE STREET. VERY SCARY THOUGHT. YET MOST EAT MEAT DONT CARE HOW HORRIFIC THE DEATH OF THE ANIMAL IS. HOW CAN ANYONE LOOK AT A FACE THEN KILL IT.

    When children are told where the meat comes from they are so young and do not make the connection, the family continues to buy meat for hamburger cause the kids like cheeseburgers or chicken nuggets regardless if they are real chck or other matter combined but they never once tell them lets eat something without meat and spare one of those animals.

    Temple Grandin starting in fact, to find a way to “fool” the animals on their way to a horrific death. She designed a “circular” pattern to route the animals to their deaths so they would go to their deaths calmly. She has made millions of dollars selling these divices to slaughterhouses throughout the country, and to say she cares for the animals is a HUGE leap. She figured out away to make the death line (that the animals certainly smell the fear and death long before their own execution) more productive and controlled. Grandin and the slaughterhouses are after the money, make no doubt about that! She is in the animal death industry and is making her wealthy! She is a HUGE contradiction, of saying she cares, but still encourages the mass murders, otherwise, she would have no one to sell her “death devices” to!

    I think people want to make her a hero, for what she has done while having autism, but if your going to make a movie about someone, who is known for her work in the animal flesh industry, then all critism is fair. I my opinion, the only (two) issues the movie showed was that she “thinks like animals” and implies autistic people and animals are very similair in their reasoning. Which in fact the two are very different in how they live and die. Autistic people are given help by many caring people, where as animals born for their flesh, live and die horribly. The two are vastly different! And there should be little if any credibility of such claims, unless of course that person who claims to know how animals feel, lives in hell and is pre-destined to die a horrific death!
    Ssecondly, it has obviously led meat eaters down a “rosy” path that Grandin is making what they enjoy so much better for the animals, and refusing to show the real horror of their lives and how the animals are being “deceived” into a complient death march.

    Do we know if animals are still aware of the stinch of death and fear while going in circles right before they begin to enter the shute and then they certainly smell it and know their fate is not good, by the smell of the fear, the blood, and the screams and moans from those that go right before them into the shute of death.

    Bottom line to me is that a horrific “industry” which creates the leading cause of human death, heart disease, ( 2009 – 616,064 deaths ), is a direct result of humans eating another living being. This movie “strengthened” that industry and reinforces in the minds of people that have a some regard for the animal killings, that it is all done humanely and that’s what animals are for, continuing to stick their heads back in the sand, and not see the entire industry for what it really is.

    Well written article. I watched the Emmys and was mortified by the round of applause. Think that the Autism bit was the major factor in the Emmy and the applause cause the contraption to calmly murder the animals isn’t worth a damn. Its a shame that the connection to the mass murders of sentient beings was so grossly overlooked.
