Absolute Moral Authority

Because plain old moral authority just wasn’t good enough — a mesablue production

He’s baaaaack

Posted by mesablue on October 14, 2007

In Moonbat child abuse I posted about whacko vegan moonbat Dave Warwak who got fired for preaching veganism in his art class. He responded in the comment section with a copy of his appeal. Interesting read — if you can understand “crazy speak”.

Well, Davey boy couldn’t leave well enough alone. He decided to show up at a local parade — with predictable results.

Dave Warwak received a strong warning today from his hometown police, during the town’s annual homecoming parade.


Accompanied by his dog, Warwak allegedly entered the town’s parade and passed out small cards to children.


Police stopped Warwak, escorted him home and instructed him to “stay away from the town’s children”.


The warning came in response to parent and teacher complaints who were in attendance.


At particular issue with police was Warwak telling children, Santa Claus is not real.


The card’s front reads:
Remember the Santa Claus lie?
One lie is so bad, some people prefer to keep it hidden.
So hidden, some never find out!
Do you want to live a lie?


The back reads:
Go to your favorite search engine.
Look-up “Factory Farming” Look-up “Vegan”
“Naming a rock, a banana, does not make it food”


A teacher of ten years in Illinois, Warwak was recently fired for his vegan views. Warwak filed an appeal in response to his termination. No date has been set.

Where did I get this info? From the nutjob himself. Davey seems to think that he is the victim here and is looking for support for his “mission”.

Sorry, fuck face.

You are nuts. Go eat your vegetables and leave the kids alone or you will end up in jail. Or worse.

Update with even more crazy:

Found on a vegan message board:

On a trip to Wal-Mart, Dave found some treats called “Marshmallow Peeps” — yellow candy shaped like baby chicks. He bought peeps for many students and for the entire faculty and asked that each person personalize the peeps and keep the peeps safe and sound for three days before returning the peeps to Dave. Principal Mahaffy even drew a balloon in which his peep pointed to the Principal and said “he’s the greatest.” Many of the children became attached to the peeps and only reluctanly gave them back to Dave on the 4th day. Dave then took the personalized peeps and put them in a mural in the school’s hallway. On the first day, Dave took a few peeps and put their heads on plaques painted on the walls as if they were hunters’ trophies. The next day, he put a few peeps in cages as if they were in a zoo. On the third day, he put a few peeps between slices of bread. Now, the point of the Peeps became clear: Animals, like the Peeps, may taste good but humans should care for them, not eat, jail, and kill (and run lab tests on) them. To underscore his point, Dave painted pictures of Einstein, da Vinci, and other famous vegetarians on the mural with quotations from each of them lauding the practice of vegetarianism and condemning meat-eating. He invited his students to join him on painting the mural and replaced all
the signs with “school rules” in his classroom with signs saying “YES” all over the classroom.

Just your average everyday school art project.

Nutbag.

    The principal was in on the peep project?

    That’s disturbing, too.

    Yeah, but I don’t think the principal knew what he was going to do once he got the peeps back.

    “Many of the children became attached to the peeps and only reluctanly gave them back to Dave on the 4th day.”
    In my school, those peeps wouldn’t have made it to the 2nd day.

    I don’t eat a whole lot of meat, but this guy is such a fascist with his desire to force his views on others.

    Everybody knows peeps taste like chicken. Feathers come off easier, though.

    Police take vegan books from children
    By KELLY MAHONEY

    FOX RIVER GROVE – A former District 3 art teacher and outspoken vegan embittered over his dismissal has been distributing a 700-plus page book that chronicles his firing.

    David Warwak, 45, allegedly posted a request via the Internet for his former students to meet him at a Fox River Grove McDonald’s after school May 23. He gave numerous copies of the book, “Peep Show for Children Only,” to middle school children, Fox River Grove Police Chief Ron Lukasik said.

    Lukasik said police became aware of the book after a mother complained May 27. The mother said her daughter, along with several other students, was pictured in it. The police since have recovered six copies of the book that were given to District 3 students.

    Police and McHenry County prosecutors reviewed the book and determined that although Warwak did not have permission to include the photos, he would not be charged with any crime. Civil charges could be possible, Lukasik and First Assistant State’s Attorney Tom Carroll said.

    “While we certainly do not condone what he did – we don’t think it was appropriate – … we are unable to charge Mr. Warwak with violation of any criminal statute,” Carroll said.

    Warwak said there was nothing inappropriate about distributing information on veganism, the practice of not eating any animal products.

    “With all the school shootings that happened and the climate of schools today, something has to change, so I offer solutions in the book,” Warwak said. “Humane education is what’s needed. … That’s what’s missing in school.”

    The soft-cover, self-published book – a large, rambling text – is mostly transcripts from various proceedings regarding Warwak’s dismissal last year sprinkled with rants about society’s obsession with eating meat and animal products, such as milk. It also contains correspondences with students.

    The school board said in terminating him last fall that Warwak ceased teaching art and turned his classroom into an indoctrination zone, telling students to keep his teachings secret.

    At least two versions of Warwak’s book exist. Warwak said the one that his students received was a draft. Another is available online for $29.95. The online version is 487 pages long.

    Warwak, who lives in Williams Bay, Wis., said he distributed the drafts to 15 to 20 students. Students, he said, are more receptive to his message.

    “Kids see it because they’re still in touch with their heart, and adults don’t see it,” Warwak said. “Adults, they flip out, and they don’t want kids to even check it out.”

    Warwak said he was not surprised that police looked into the books, but no parents had called.

    “I know that the school was upset, and I know that police were going to kids’ houses,” Warwak said. “Anyone can contact me at any time. I’m not hiding from anyone.”

    Warwak described himself on the back cover of the book as a social critic, humanitarian and philosopher who “just as Scopes changed the landscape of education with his ‘Monkey Trials’ some 80 years ago, Warwak has come forward in present day with striking revelations about our current failing educational system and offers clear no-nonsense solutions that chill one to the bone. This book is for all ages and for all time.”

    An excerpt from “Peep Show for Children Only”:

    “The beef industry knows all about me. They documented my initial emergence on the scene. Funny how they monitor such things. … Too bad these losers can’t control the internet. People are finding out. The gig is up! The internet shall set us free!”

    Men’s Deaths In Their Fifties Can Be Prevented

    Milk on Trial as Cornell Expert Testifies at Fired Teacher’s Hearing
    By Martha Rosenberg
    Jun 24, 2008

    Chicago, IL — The life expectancy of National Football League players might have as much to do with teaching art as the factory farming fired middle school teacher Dave Warwak is accused of teaching.

    But it formed the backbone of Cornell University Professor Emeritus Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s testimony at the Board of Education hearing into the middle school teacher’s dismissal in Fox River Grove, IL, population 5,000, in April.

    NFL players are only expected to live to 56 because “they are dying of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and diet related illnesses,” testified Campbell in defense of Warwak’s classroom charge that animal foods will shorten lives.

    Campbell, Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry, is author, with son Thomas M. Campbell II, of the 2005 nutrition bestseller, The China Study, which links premature death and many diseases to diet and was called the “Grand Prix of Epidemiology” by the New York Times.

    After reading The China Study, the Kansas City Chiefs’ Tony Gonzalez dropped animal products from his diet. testified Campbell, and “this past season he broke the all-time record for the most catches, the most touchdown passes and the most yards gained of any NFL tight end in the history of the National Football League.”

    The China Study also converted Minnesota Twins pitcher Pat Neshek to an animal free diet says a June ESPN report which also cites vegan diets of Detroit Lion Desmond Howard, Miami Dolphin Ricky Williams, former St. Louis Ram D’Marco Farr, Milwaukee Brewer Prince Fielder and Atlanta Hawk Salim Stoudamire.

    Forty-five year old middle school art teacher Dave Warwak was dismissed last fall from the District 3 school system where he had taught for eight years for, “turning his classroom into a forum on veganism,” abandoning the art curriculum and asking students to keep it a secret from their parents according to school board documents.

    What began as a simple be-kind-to-animals project approved by administrators who even participated–marshmallow Easter “Peeps” were made into “pets” to be cared for–got out of hand when Warwak put the “pets” in cages, pots and pans and between slices of bread.

    “The problem was when it turned into a PETA advertisement and it was against the school lunch program,” testified Fox River Grove Middle School Principal Tim Mahaffy at the Illinois Board of Education’s three day closed hearings into Warwak’s dismissal conducted at the Fox River Grove City Hall in April.

    Despite hearing officer Barry Simon’s repeated admonishments that the case was not about whether veganism, “is right or wrong or good or bad,” feeding children animal products was the 300 pound Peep in the room as Warwak, acting pro se, questioned Mahaffy.

    Q: Would you say the school lunch goes against humane education?

    A: I disagree. I don’t see the connection.

    Q: The humane education says be nice to all things; the school lunch says, well, not animals?

    Robert E. Riley (counsel for District 3): Objection. Arguing with the witness.

    Q: Does the school promote meat and dairy one-sided or do they allow other viewpoints on it?

    A: The school is committed to following both the State and federal guidelines for serving school lunches.

    Of course Fox River Grove Middle School is paid to be one-sided.

    Like 45,000 other public middle and high schools in the US and 60,000 elementary schools, it only receives reimbursement from the National School Lunch Program when it pushes milk and life-size Milk Mustache and “Body By Milk” posters adorn lunchroom walls.

    This is the program that served children downer dairy cows, at risk for mad cow disease, until the January recall of Hallmark beef, observes Warwak in a recent memoir about his termination, Peep Show For Children Only, found on lulu.com.

    Yet the pro dairy message on the school posters–which feature sports figures and popular musicians and arrive unsolicited from the National Dairy Council–is misleading and harmful testified Dr. T. Colin Campbell on the basis of decades of his National Institutes of Health-funded research.

    “The consumption of dairy, especially at the younger ages, is a problem,” said Campbell which includes health consequences like higher risks of prostate, uterine, breast and endometrial cancers, osteoporosis and a “threefold higher risk of colon cancer.”

    The health promises about strong bones and healthy bodies on the posters are written by a USDA dietary committee, said Campbell, whose members were found by a court to have conflicts of interests after refusing a Freedom of Information request.

    “Six of the eleven members of the committee including the chair had an association with the dairy industry,” said Campbell. “And the chair himself had taken more money without telling the public about it than he was allowed under the law.”

    The animal rich diet the Fox River Grove’s District 3 defends to the point of firing a tenured teacher might mean kids won’t live longer than the sports heroes they admire, summarized Campbell.

    Arbitrator Simon has yet to make a ruling about Warwak–or the posters.

    It seems to me that the strawman diatribe here against Warwak- especially the part about deeming himself an “absolute moral authority” –neglects to notice that this is the stance that non-vegans take a whole lot more commonly than vegans. Warwak is one man pushing back against a mountain, so it is to be applauded that he pushes forcefully. What is the carnivore’s excuse for pushing forcefully? What mountain is s/he working against? Duh, there isn’t one. NOT YET. Oh, and how many carnivores are educated about this issue?… surely some, but far fewer by percent comparison. If you haven’t even perused the basics, such as the film Earthlings and various videos on the youtube on factory farming, then there is nothing you can add to the discussion… this comes from a “non-fanatic” animal advocate who can’t decide whether it’s right to be that way or not, but certainly has exposed herself to the horrors of factory farming before being in the debate at all.
