NPR Tries To Erase Upton Sinclair
by Truth To Power Tuesday, Jun. 09, 2009 at 8:26 AM

This work is in the public domain There is no longer any division between news and commercials on NPR, with its 200 million dollar investment in the world's biggest animal killer, unionbuster, litterer, global heating causer, cancer, heart disease and food poisoning generator.


NPR Tries To Erase Upton Sinclair



Steve Inskeep and Renee Montagne in obedience to
the Morning Edition producer... gave a free commercial
to Hormel's Spam, the abbatoir offal
fed to men, women and children at homeless
shelters, giving them cancer, heart disease,
food poisoning. As usual there was a subliminal
message for the world's biggest unionbuster
and animal killer, Ronald McDonald.
How fitting that one of Hormel's media personnel
is named Craven.

Hormel's brutal slaughter methods were
featured by Upton Sinclair in his classic The Jungle.
Because of him the FDA was founded, but
rather than eliminating the cruelties of
the killing fields, it has mutliplied them.

Upton Sinclair in The Jungle (written after his investigation of Hormel in Austin Minnesota): The shriek was followed by another, louder and yet more agonizing..for once started upon that journey, the hog never came back. One by one the men hooked up the hogs and slit their throats. There was a line of hogs with squeals and lifeblood ebbing away.. until at last each vanished into a huge vat of boiling water (some still alive). The hogs were so innocent. They came so very trustingly. They were so very human in their protests. They had done nothing to deserve it.

Hormel: one of the most cruel
of the nation's slaughterhouses
.. its Spam contains
intestinal linings, lips
and eyes
...and snouts and tails and uteri

(one does not know if Hormel's Spam contains
brain stem material, because meat inspection
in the US is very lax, and Mad Cow testing
involves one tenth of 1%. The USDA, CDC,
and FDA have hidden Mad Cow Mad Pig Mad Fish
and other BSE deaths for decades under Veneman,
Glickman Vilsack etc.)
