According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the pigs that have been raised for generations on family farms are a threat to the environment and must all be destroyed.Obviously the factory farms who squeeze the hapless animals into a tiny cage to live a life of inactive misery will sell more pork if they don't have competition from the local farmers. The Michigan Pork Producers Association has publicly supported the ISO and will benefit directly from the elimination of the competition.
The Invasive Species Order Amendment is to take place at the end of April. Resistance by the farmers will lead to arrest - the order indicates that felony charges will be filed against farmers who attempt to protect their property and livelihoods.
The pigs in question are any pigs that are allowed free range, as opposed to being confined in an unsanitary and inhumane factory farm. If a pig happens to have hair that is lighter at the tip than at the root, that pig is history. If a pig is striped - again - done! There will be no room in the state of Michigan for a pig who bears red and brown spots, who has a dark snout, or who has "other characteristics not currently known to the MDNR that are identified by the scientific community." Barring a disguise that includes a cage just big enough to go around the pig, all free-range swine are at risk.
As always, when dealing with the de facto government, this boils down to two things: control and money.
First, we have to follow the money. Who stands to benefit from this?
Large grocery store chains that purchase meat from the factory farms instead of family farms will profit if they are the only source of pork.
Whoever is getting paid off to make this atrocity happen has probably gotten his/her pockets lined very well.
Secondly, we have to consider power. Farmers are losing their livelihoods (and they will NOT be compensated for the pigs that are destroyed, according to the order, because "Indemnification in [Michigan] statute is for livestock and invasive species are not livestock, and are therefore, not eligible for indemnification.” They are losing their freedom to farm ethically and to raise the livestock they wish to raise. Keep in mind that farmers who rebel will be arrested and charged with felonies.
We, as consumers, are losing our right to choose food that is produced in a natural and healthy way. This attack is just like the attack on raw milk, where those dastardly Amish people were hauled off to jail for daring to compete with the dairy industry, with all of their hormones, antibiotics and mandatory processing. This goes hand in hand with the relentless assault on organic fruit and vegetable farms, with the ever-increasing number of regulations and fees making it ever more difficult to produce chemical free food.
It all boils down to the master plan of Agenda 21: feed the people genetically modified frankenfood and make it the only food available. We will be starved of nutrients while they benevolently feedi us factory-farmed garbage. If this small farm fiasco takes place, believe me, it will NOT be the last of these sieges to take place. State by state until it becomes federal law, our farms will be looted and destroyed by brown-shirt government agents with shot guns and bottles of bleach.
