“Fuck the Fourth” Anarchist Book Sale

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Making vegans look like clowns

The last time there was an anarchist book sale in the Bay Area, the former vegan/currently pro-meat author of The Vegetarian Myth, Lierre Keith, got attacked with chili pepper-laced pies by a group of masked/hooded vegan anarchists. You can watch it here four times in a row (the audience does not look at all surprised, in fact the guy in the front just keeps eating his snacks!). I’m not sure who looked the worst: vegans, anarchists, or pro-meaters, but it was an embarrassing show by all. I’m vegan myself, but the whole ordeal is ridiculous on many levels, especially the idiotic “male pie rape” feminism backlash. I may be vegan, but I am not a feminist. Based on my own experience, I firmly believe that women are weaker and worse at sports. But then again I’m Jewish, so it might be that more than my femaleness.

Anyway, if you’re one of those anarchists who claim to hate fourth of July because you hate America yet you’re still here living off of it’s spoils and still posting articles that tax-payers wrote about you on your Anarchist News website, or if you’re none of the above and simply received no Friday afternoon barbecue invitations, then here’s an event for you.

Friends of AK Press...Enemies of Lierre Keith

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
