Liberal College Will Slaughter Animal Mascots to Save the Earth

Remember Animal Farm? There’s something disturbingly Orwellian about this story, reported by former Fix assistant editor Robby Soave, now at The Daily Caller:

A controversial decision at Green Mountain College in Vermont has pitted animal welfare liberals and environmentalist liberals against each other.

The college — which prides itself as a sustainable campus, emphasizes environmental studies, and hosts a campus farm — recently decided to slaughter two beloved oxen and serve them up as meals in the cafeteria.

The oxen are named Bill and Lou, and have worked at Green Mountain’s student-run Cerridwen Farm for 10 years, pulling carts and wagons. They appear in promotional photos and videos, and have been called de facto mascots of Green Mountain College and the farm. But the animals are no longer able to work, and the college’s commitment to sustainability requires that absolutely no resources be put to waste.

Wait ’til these people are fully in charge of your healthcare, and they are making decisions via committee on what sort of care you are allowed to receive once you, like poor Bill and Lou, are no longer able to work.

Death panels, from a certain perverse perspective, serve the interest of environmental sustainability.
