Live pig chopped in half in Vietnam, bloody scene condemned
January 28th, Nem Thuong village in Vietnam’s Bac Ninh province, local villagers held a ceremony on this 6th day of the lunar new year, to commemorate 13th century anti-imperial general Doan Thuong. Doan Thuong is also regarded as the village’s guardian deity.
Every year on the 6th day of the first month of the lunar year, thousands of the village’s residents will hold a ceremony/festival.
One of the controversial ceremonial activities is the splitting of a live pig. Because the scene is extremely bloody, it has been denounced by many, and even the local government has called for an end to this ceremony.
The level of a nation’s civilization can be judged by how it treats its animals.
Makes sense, like how Canada slaughters baby seals, little Japan slaughters dolphins and whales, these countries are indeed barbaric and uncivilized.
Seems like the more developed a country is, the more benevolent it is towards animals. When I was small, I didn’t understand why the Iman in the Hui Autonomous Region would recite scripture as he slaughtered chickens and sheep, but now I understand. We must have a measure of respect and thanks for the food we eat, especially the life with flesh and blood.
I’ve learned something. Turns out developed countries are more benevolent towards animals. Looks like hunting whales, hunting seals, slaughtering bulls are all displays of benevolence towards animals. But towards people is different, which is why the world is full of war, pissing on the corpses of the enemy (American soldiers), torturing Guantanamo prisoners of war, roasting prisoners of war on a fire (Canadian soldiers), truly developed countries of universal love.
Killing through abuse…
Sigh…such a cute pig gone like that.
Nature has always had a food chain, and man having to kill certain animals to survive can be said to be right and proper [a given]. But in nature, only man feels “cruelty” and “pity”. So, fulfilling the scientific law of the food chain in a manner that is acceptable by the vast majority of people is I think what man should choose to do. No matter how “cruel” animals are when hunting and killing, it is still within the scope of their natural instincts. As for man, man can choose to go with his instincts when starving, but when there is no lack of food and clothes, then perhaps man should choose a more humane way of ending an animals life. After all, it is all to cater to human society’s characteristic of kindness that there are animal protection organizations, that there are calls for alleviating the suffering of animals during slaughter and butchering. And this chopping of a pig in half on the streets, as well as the cruel mistreatment and killing of animals in various places around the world, that long ago exceeded the natural hunting and killing instincts of any animal in nature, is worth us considering eliminating as the world’s dominant species.
Only one thing to say: You can use various justifications to defend your abusive killing, but then you’ll just be farther and farther from human kindness.
Vietnamese are just fucking barbaric people. Back then we gave them weapons to fight the Americans, but then they climbed onto our heads [turned on us]. Vietnamese are the same as Japanese. Deserve a fucking [beating].
Compared to our slaughtering methods, they seem to be a bit cruel.
Softly asks: The last photo, what are the MM doing???
This is their memorial ceremony, a traditional custom that has been passed down, so even though it is a little bloody, them having it [tradition/culture] is still better than not having any at all, unlike us, where various memorial ceremonies have all been labeled superstition and suppressed/erased.
I wish the LZ would delete that splitting/chopping photograph. It’s too bloody, and would be bad if seen by children!
Heavens! If one day they were to capture us as prisoners of war, Would they do this to us?
Judge the matter on its own merits, we can’t recklessly spout whatever we wish just because its Vietnamese monkeys. What difference is there between using a knife to stab and using a knife to chop? Who is more cruel than who? Seems to me chopping is a little more efficient/quick (depending on skill and strength). Those who have slaughtered a pig before all know, that the moment you stab it, it will still struggle for a bit before finally dying.
The monkeys have hacked/chopped the Japanese, hacked the bananas, hacked Uncle Sam, and hacked the PLA, much less hacking pigs? Everything to them is just passing clouds…
What do you think?
