Animal Extremists In Their Own Words

Wednesday, July 28, 1999

T-SHIRTS being sold in conjunction with an "Earth Day" celebration in California read: "I kill hunters for fun and sport." In the U.S. today, animal extremists are continuing their terror campaigns aimed at elevating animals at least to the same status as humans. Their goals range from the elimination of critical research on life-threatening diseases to a complete ban on all hunting-- period! Their terror tactics include bombings, arson, poisoning of hunting dogs, and physical assault. They believe the "rights" of animals are more important than those of children. In their anti-hunting campaign, their most powerful weapon as of late has been the ballot initiative. In 1996, these extremists successfully imposed their anti-hunting will in five states, including initiatives calling for a ban on bear and cougar hunting with dogs in Washington State and the elimination of some forms of hunting and trapping in Massachusetts. Emboldened by these successes, they`re now looking to each election year as the next battle front on which they`ll wage their war to eradicate our hunting heritage. But don`t take our word for it, take theirs.

Animal Extremists in Their Own Words

Ingrid Newkirk, National Director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
(PETA, based in Norfolk, Virginia, is one of the most active animal extremist groups,
with direct links to the terrorist Animal Liberation Front.)

"I don`t believe human beings have the right to life. That`s a supremacist perversion. A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy." --Audubon, Nov. 1990.

"Even if animal tests produced a cure [for AIDS], we`d be against it." -- Vogue, Sept. 1989.

" Six million people died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughterhouses." --Washington Post, Nov. 13, 1983.

"You can`t legally deface someone`s property--but if you`re somewhere and no one`s looking, go ahead" -- Animal Rights `97Conference, July 1997.

"Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation." -- Harpers, Aug. 1988.

Wayne Pacelle, Vice-President of the Humane Society of the United States
(HSUS operates out of Washington, D.C., and "strongly" opposes any type of hunting.)

"If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would."-- Associated Press, Dec. 30, 1991.
"We want to stigmatize hunting, we see it as the next logical target and we believe it is vulnerable." -- Field & Stream,June 1991.

"Having hunters oversee wildlife is like having Dracula guard the bloodbank." - Field & Stream, June 1991.

Michael W. Fox, Vice-President, Humane Society of the United States

"We`re not superior. There are no clear distinctions between us and animals." -- Washingtonian, Feb. 1990.

"The life of an ant and the life of my child should be granted equal consideration." -- Inhumane Society, Fox Publications.

"Only a few of the million you kill would of [sic] bitten you." (Expressing opposition to the use of bug sprays) --Returning to Eden, Fox Publications.

Cleveland Armory, Founder, The Fund For Animals

"Hunting is an antiquated expression of macho self-aggrandizement,with no place in a civilized society." -- U.S. News & World Report, Feb. 5, 1990.

"These blood thirsty nuts claim they provide a service to the environment. Nonsense! A hunter goes into the woods to kill something, period" -- U.S. News & World Report, Feb. 5,1990.

Rod Coronado, Animal Liberation Front/Earth First!
(The Animal Liberation Front is a terrorist group first organized in England.
Its terrorist acts in the U.S. can be traced back to 1982.)

"Launch your own campaign against the fur industry . . . Find a fur shop in your area and smash or etch its windows. Liquid steel ruins locks; Bomb threats only cost a quarter. If you live in an area where furs are worn, fill a squirt bottle with red dye or battery acid and let fly. If you`re presentable enough to get into a fur shop department store, take a razor blade and slash the coats." --Earth First! Newsletter, Vol. xii, #2, 1991.

(Note: Rod Coronado is currently serving time in a Federal penitentiary for arson of a research facility at Michigan State University.)

David Forman, Co-Founder of Earth First!
(
Earth First! is a radical environmental group based in New York and New Mexico.)

"I think the whole concept of private property as an ultimate good has got to be replaced. There`s a higher good out there than private property." -- Animal Rights Reporter, June 1989.
