If you’ve worked in the fur industry or been vocal about your love for fur, then you have probably suffered some verbal abuse from animal rights activists. Animal activists like to claim they hold the moral high-ground and that they are the compassionate ones. Well, let’s look at some of the things these models of compassion say …
What they say about … using foul language in front of farm animals:
“[it’s] conceivable that verbal abuse of an extreme nature [against any animal, including sheep] could constitute an act of violence”
- Nicolah Donovan, president of Lawyers for Animals (source)
I guess they never heard the old adage, “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.”
What they say to … a homestead farming family when they post a photo of a cow they have just raised and then slaughtered for food:
“What if I start raising children for raping? Would that be acceptable? Would that be better than raping another child? It’s stupid to think it is OK to kill animals.”
– Luis Pacheco (source)
It takes a very, very sick mind to compare raising cows for meat to imprisoning and sexually assaulting children. A very, very sick mind.
What they say about … the fur trade:
“I can’t wait to start seeing coats made of human skin. As long as humans are raised on farms, I don’t see how it matters how they are killed.”
– animal rights activist (source)
I guess we should be grateful that humans aren’t being farmed, or we’d have to look out for this psycho!
What they say about … bugs’ lives and children’s lives:
“The life of an ant and the life of my child should be accorded equal respect.”
– Michael W. Fox, former vice-president, HSUS (Associated Press, Jan. 15, 1989)
Does this guy have kids? Do they feel the same way?
