Most of the hostility here originates with the vegetarians, and is directed at non-vegetarians. Most of the hostility from non-vegetarians is reactionary, although admittedly it's not always polite or intelligent.
For your enlightenment, I have compiled a small sampling of some of the insults given by vegetarians here within the last couple of months or so.
As you can plainly see, supporting "peace and harmony" does not appear to be a priority:
"bizarre and animalistic. completely barbaric"
"sick and demented"
"their egos are just fragile. Plus they feel unimportant and insecure in their lives"
"I would also spit in people's faces when they walked out eating dead animals."
"i just wanna kill them!!!"
"Why is it wrong to kill people? Why is it wrong to rape women? Why is it wrong to abuse children? There is your answer."
"torture and kill animals just for your own satisfaction"
"stuffing animal carcasses down their throats"
"you would feel it is justifiable to kill a human and eat their flesh?"
"i hate these people"
"Lots of insecure corpse-munchers and pus-chuggers do this. It's pathetic and cowardly."
"so the he can keep them in a box in his house and feed them live prey for his own amusement, and also pays for hundreds of them to be horrifically tortured and killed so that he may eat their dead flesh"
"just a plain ordinary moron"
"sad excuses for humans"
"I love babies. Should I pay people to scald THEM alive?"
"some are hypocrites, and some are plain ignorant."
"some humans, like you, are a blight"
"Do you believe that vegetarians/vegans are BETTER than omnivores?" "In a word: yup."
"The arguments in favor of Vegetarianism are FACTS, were as the arguments in favor of eating meat are OPINIONS."
"Why do omnivores attempt to justify torture?"
"Exploitation for the pleasure of psychopaths"
"I think they are jerks"
"rude, narrowminded idiots"
"they're so ignorant, childish and rude"
"assholes who are ignorant meat eating f*ucks with no respect, then I would be happy to lock them in a small cage and poke them with hot sticks"
"Just think of them as 12-year-old American boys who are still virgins, or middle-aged men who are fat, ugly, and impotent."
"their dead animal habit is disgusting, dangerous, weak minded, and repulsive"
"vegetarians/vegan are obviously smarter"
"vegans don't smile and bow to people who are morally reprehensible"
"they immediately feel morally inferior"
"I hate meat eaters as well."
It is extremely difficult not to respond to a group of people that talks about you this way, simply for not adopting their dietary choice.
I hope that answers your question!
