Girls Just Wanna Have Guns has the story, and it will frighten anyone who hunts. And it should frighten anyone who, like me, does not really hunt, but cares about liberty, and about the very positive things outdoorsmen do for wildlife and the environment.
There is an organized jihad being waged by radical environmental and animal rights activists against hunting, fishing, and trapping. Some of this push is overt, while other efforts are subtle yet equally sinister.
These radical groups hope to substitute natural resource harvesting activities (such as hunting) by humans as the long-standing preferred method of wildlife management, and to instead adopt a new approach incorporating a theoretical but unrealistic natural predator-prey environmental balance.
We all area ware of the “unintended consequences” of so many Liberal ideals. This will be no better I suspect, and the animals would suffer greatly, and if they would suffer so would the environment. Here is more
The details of this extravagant theory were first laid out by Earth First co-founder David Foreman. In his book, Rewilding North America ( http://tiny.cc/hkbkjx ) , he says:
“Specific actions that best meet my criteria for continental-scale conservation are the following:
- Reintroduce carnivores wherever possible
- Reintroduce beavers and other highly interactive species
- Establish species recovery goals for ecologically effective populations
- Generally halt all predator and “pest” control
- Reform wildlife management to adopt a more ecological approach
- Select and design new wilderness areas based on ecological principles
- Protect all large roadless areas on public lands
- Create larger roadless areas in the East
- Remove livestock from much of the public lands
- Reform livestock grazing where it continues
- Prioritize simple soil and gully erosion control
- Prohibit big tree logging
- Develop standards for ecological restoration in wilderness areas
- Remove abandoned and unnecessary livestock fencing
- Restrict all motorized vehicles to designated routes
- Reduce the miles of public lands roads
- Stop bogus R.S. 2477 (highway right-of-way) claims
- Establish landscape permeability as a public land management goal
- Identify and remove or mitigate barriers to wildlife movement
- Encourage ecological management of private, corporate, and tribal lands important for linkages
- Identify private lands that should be acquired on a willing-seller basis
- Restore a natural fire ecology
- Remove destructive, unnecessary dams
- Restore or mimic natural, over-the-bank flooding, where possible
- Establish in-stream flow as a beneficial water use
- Prioritize removal of exotic species that threaten native species and wildlands
- Design networks for climate change . . . .”
For the record, I do not oppose the reintroduction of carnivores to areas where they once resided. I think that would be a good step. The rest of that list, however smacks of radicalism disguised as environmentalism.
Donald Douglas has noticed this trend. By the way, who knew that there were transgender animals, or that they had rights ;)
At London’s Daily Mail, “Former soldier who became animal rights commander is jailed for six years over campaign of terror against animal testing company.”
Here’s a particularly grizzly account at the Times of Zambia, “Animal rights activist jailed for blackmail plot“:
Debbie Vincent, a 52-year-old former soldier who underwent a sex change, was found guilty last month for her part in a conspiracy to blackmail British-based Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).
Vincent became the public face of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) after seven members of the group were jailed for a total of 50 years in 2009 for their role in the campaign.
Members of the group falsely accused HLS staff members of being paedophiles, sent them hoax bombs and sanitary towels claimed to be infected with AIDS, and caused criminal damage to their cars and homes.
In May 2009, activists dug up a grave in Switzerland and removed an urn containing the ashes of the mother of Daniel Vasella, the then-chairman of Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis, one of HLS’ suppliers.
Sentencing Vincent at Winchester Crown Court in southeast England, judge Keith Cutler said: “It is difficult for a judge to calculate the repugnance felt by society to such appalling acts.
“Nothing at all could justify such attacks.”
He added: “You express no shred of remorse or condemnation for the incidents of extreme terror and desecration which have been caused.”
A group of Vincent’s supporters held placards outside the court reading “No Excuse for Animal Abuse” and “Against Animal Testing and State Repression”.
Shockingly, people are less than thrilled with this.
WOODLAND HILLS (CBSLA.com) – Parents say they are considering taking PETA to court over an innocent-looking comic handed out to children at Calabash Elementary School in Woodland Hills that contained graphic images of mutilated cows.
Claire Borsheim and many other parents at the Woodland Hills campus were outraged after PETA handed out the pamphlets to their children the same day a baby cow was on campus for a lesson about dairy farming.
The pamphlet appeared to be a cartoon comic and was titled “A Cow’s Life,” but the images inside were horrifying, parents said.
“My 6-year-old daughter was handed one of these comics, saw the insert of the mutilated cow that I ripped away right away, she started flipping through it and saw pictures of baby cows being electrocuted, factory farms with machetes, I mean, just graphically horrifying images for a 6 year old,” Borsheim said.
“The images are pretty graphic,” parent Shawn Belschner said. “They’re of mutilated cows, infected cows, cows being dehorned, cows in bad conditions. I don’t think it’s good for any child.”
The graphic leaflet showing cows being dehorned and cows with infected udders was PETA says is a kid-friendly pamphlet about dairy cows – literature they say is meant to be educational.
Come on take a guess. What would a
rock star self-impressed douche nozzle think was as awful as eating meat? Give up? Well here is your answer
1980′s English rock star Steven Morrissey said in an online interview this week that he doesn’t see a difference between eating meat and pedophilia.
“I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia (sic),” he said, responding to a question about what’s motivated him to be a vegetarian. “They are both rape, violence, murder.”
Egads! Who says doing drugs will not affect your brain? Here is more from Morrissey
“If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away,” the former frontman for The Smiths continued. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you ‘Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,’ well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers.”
Donald Douglas has news of PETA’s savage attack on Katy Perry and her breasts. HATERS Gonna HATE!
Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently slammed the use of animals in Perry’s video, which features the 28 year-old singer hanging out with monkeys, elephants and tigers.
“Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods,” a PETA spokesman said in a statement. “They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.”
I’m sure Ms. Perry’s crew treated the animals well. Can’t folks have a little fun savagery these days?
Just PETA seeking some publicity, I just hope no Ms. Perry’s breasts are OK
Read it and laugh, or shake your head in disbelief
PETA, always adding hilarity to our day…pass the blue cheese dip!
Via Daily Caller:
In its latest campaign to end carnivorism, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has expressed concern that buffalo wings might harm the physical development of the sex organs of male babies.
The radical animal rights group recently sent a letter to Drew Cerza, who runs the Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, New York, asking him to bar pregnant women from taking part in a wing-eating contest which has been held each Labor Day since 2002.
PETA’s associate director of campaigns, Lindsay Rajt, wrote to Cerza saying “consuming poultry while pregnant may lead to birth defects in utero, including smaller-than-average penises for newborn boys.”
PETA, just another tree in the Grove of Low-hanging Blogging Fruit
