The True Agenda of the
Animal Rights Movement

How can a person, small group, or organization possibly accuse a compassionate (tax-free) charity of "likely" criminal conduct? Especially when the "charity" is in the apparent business of "protecting" defenseless and innocent animals.

The fact is that those at the top of the Animal Rights Movement are not really concerned with the best interest of animals. They instead prefer to promote and advance an agenda that has nothing to do with advancing the rights of animals. This concern for animals is merely a guise geared to the deception of others into making contributions and to give an appearance of legitimacy.

Examine the handiwork of the Animal Rights Movement fighting Urban Sprawl and advancing their agenda.

Here is the truth about Animal Rights groups in the U.S. We want people to know the truth that these groups that refer to themselves as animal lovers, in fact, do not care about animals. We are not making up anything. Look at the quotes from high ranking officials within these organizations then make your own decisions.

"The cat, like the dog, must disappear... We should cut the domestic cat free from our dominance by neutering, neutering, and more neutering, until our pathetic version of the cat ceases to exist."
-- John Bryant, Fettered Kingdoms: An Examination of A Changing Ethic (Washington, DC: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), 1982, p. 15 and Quoted in Animal People, May 1993

I always thought that PeTA liked cats. It seems that they would like to rid the world of them. This is the illusion that these people try to present. Most people think of PeTA as caring for animals. They do not. They wish to rid the world of dogs and cats. They wish to eliminate right of people from having pets. Their true calling is to maintain power over people. It is nothing more than a Socialist trait. These people do not believe in "Freedom". Just read on and see what their goals are.

"In a perfect world, animals would be free to live their lives to the fullest: raising their young, enjoying their native environments, and following their natural instincts. However, domesticated dogs and cats cannot survive "free" in our concrete jungles, so we must take as good care of them as possible. People with the time, money, love, and patience to make a lifetime commitment to an animal can make an enormous difference by adopting from shelters or rescuing animals from a perilous life on the street. But it is also important to stop manufacturing "pets," thereby perpetuating a class of animals forced to rely on humans to survive."
-- PeTA pamphlet, Companion Animals: Pets or Prisoners?

"Let us allow the dog to disappear from our brick and concrete jungles -- from our firesides, from the leather nooses and chains by which we enslave it."
-- John Bryant, Fettered Kingdoms: An Examination of A Changing Ethic Washington, DC: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, 1982, p. 15

I thought that you were against the extinction of animals. Now you want to get rid of a dog that is happy lying down by the fireplace on a cold night. What is wrong with you people?

"As John Bryant has written in his book Fettered Kingdoms, they [pets] are like slaves, even if well-kept slaves."
-- PeTA's Statement on Companion Animals

"I plan to send my liver somewhere in France, to protest foie gras (liver pate)... I plan to have handbags made from my skin... and an umbrella stand made from my seat."
-- PeTA President Ingrid Newkirk speaking to OnMilwaukee.com, February 1, 2005

"In a perfect world, all other than human animals would be free of human interference, and dogs and cats would be part of the ecological scheme."
-- PeTA's Statement on Companion Animals

"I am not a morose person, but I would rather not be here. I don't have any reverence for life, only for the entities themselves. I would rather see a blank space where I am. This will sound like fruitcake stuff again but at least I wouldn't be harming anything."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, founder, president and former national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), as quoted in Chip Brown, "She's a Portrait of Zealotry in Plastic Shoes," Washington Post, November 13, 1983, p. B10

"I would go to work early, before anyone got there, and I would just kill the animals myself. Because I couldn't stand to let them go through other workers abusing the animals. I must have killed thousands of them, sometimes dozens everyday."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, President, PeTA, The New Yorker, April 14, 2003

"We are not in the home finding business, although it is certainly true that we do find homes from time to time for the kind of animals people are looking for. Our service is to provide a peaceful and painless death to animals who no one wants."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, President, PeTA, The Virginian-Pilot, July 20, 2005

"Animal trainers, hunters, fishermen, cattlemen, grocers, and indeed all non-vegetarians are the moral equivalent of cannibals, slave-owners, and death-camp guards."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, President, PeTA

"It is a totally rotten business, but sometimes the only kind option for some animals is to put them to sleep forever... It sounds lovely if you're naive. We could become a no-kill shelter immediately. It means we wouldn't do as much work."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, President, PeTA The Virginian-Pilot, August 1, 2000

"To those people who say, 'My father is alive because of animal experimentation,' I say 'Yeah, well, good for you. This dog died so your father could live.' Sorry, but I am just not behind that kind of trade off."
-- Bill Maher, PeTA celebrity spokesman
, Cape Cod Today

"Six million people died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughterhouses."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, founder, president and former national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, as quoted in Chip Brown, "She's A Portrait of Zealotry in Plastic Shoes," Washington Post, November 13, 1983, p. B10

"I don't believe that people have the right to life. That's a supremacist perversion. A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's President
, American Policy Center

"There is no rational basis for saying that a human being has special rights. A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy. They're all mammals."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's President, the Washington Times August 29, 1999

"To give a child animal products is a form of child abuse."
-- Neal Barnard, Medical Advisor, PeTA, from Bernard's book, Food For Life

"If my father had a heart attack, it would give me no solace at all to know his treatment was first tried on a dog."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, founder, president and former national director for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, (PeTA), Washington Post, Nov. 13, 1983

"Eating meat is primitive, barbaric, and arrogant."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, founder, president and former national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), as quoted in Charles Griswold, Jr., "Q&A," Washington City Paper, December 20, 1985, p. 44

And you are free to decide for yourself and live you life that way. But you want to take away my freedom for me to make that decision for myself. And this is the control that the Animal Rights crowd is trying to impose on the public. And they are trying to do it through intimidation and terrorism.

"Until your daddy learns that it's not 'fun' to kill, keep your doggies and kitties away from him. He's so hooked on killing defenseless animals that they could be next!"
PeTA flyer targeting children, (Asbury Park Press, September 23, 2005)

Here is a good example of PeTA and their family values.

"Even painless research is fascism, supremacism."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Washington Magazine, August 1986

"Damaging the enemy financially is fair game."
-- Alex Pacheco, animal rights radical, PeTA co-founder and one of its original 3 board members, Washington City Paper, December 18, 1987

"I know it's illegal [trespassing], but I don't think it's wrong,"
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Montgomery County, Maryland Journal, Feb. 16, 1988

It isn't wrong for her to trespass on my property, but if I showed her the same consideration and trespassed on her property, you can be sure that I would be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

"As the surplus of cats and dogs (artificially engineered by centuries of forced breeding) declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship - enjoyment at a distance."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, "Just Like Us? Toward a Notion of Animal Rights", Harper's, August 1988, p. 50

"I find that as I get older I seem to become more of a Luddite... And hearing animal experimenters describe me as a Luddite--which used to think I was not. And now I think Ned Lud had the right idea and we should have stopped all the machinery way back when, and learned to live simple lives."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), speech at Loyola University, October 24, 1988

"Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), Just Like Us? Harper's, August 1988, p. 50

"I don't use the word 'pet.' I think it's speciesist language. I prefer "companion animal." For one thing, we would no longer allow breeding. People could not create different breeds. There would be no pet shops. If people had companion animals in their homes, those animals would have to be refugees from the animal shelters and the streets. You would have a protective relationship with them just as you would with an orphaned child. But as the surplus of cats and dogs (artificially engineered by centuries of forced breeding) declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship - enjoyment at a distance."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA vice-president, quoted in The Harper's Forum Book, Jack Hitt, ed., 1989, p. 223

"There is no hidden agenda. If anybody wonders about -- what's this with all these reforms -- you can hear us clearly. Our goal is total animal liberation."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, "Animal Rights 2002" convention, June 30, 2002

"I don't approve of the use of animals for any purpose that involves touching them - caging them."
-- Dr. Neal Barnard, president, Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), and PeTA's Medical Advisor, The Daily Californian, February 9, 1989 quoting Bernard's address to an audience at International House at Berkeley

"Even if animal tests produced a cure [for AIDS], we'd be against it."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), as quoted in Fred Barnes, "Politics," Vogue, September 1989, p. 542

Here it is. They do not care if people die. As long as a rat can live. To them it is more important that one rat live rather than the millions that could be saved by finding a cure for AIDS.

"Medical research is "immoral even if it's essential."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Washington Post, May 30, 1989

"We feel that animals have the same rights as retarded human children because they are equal mentally in terms of dependence on others."
-- Alex Pacheco, Director, PeTA, New York Times, January 14, 1989

"You don't have to own squirrels and starlings to get enjoyment from them... One day, we would like an end to pet shops and the breeding of animals. Dogs would pursue their natural lives in the wild... they would have full lives, not wasting at home for someone to come home in the evening and pet them and then sit there and watch TV,"
-- Ingrid Newkirk, national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), Chicago Daily Herald, March 1, 1990. Animal Agriculture and Breeding Purebred Dogs and Pedigreed Cats

"Humans have grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the earth."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder, president and former national director, Readers Digest, June 1990 Biomedical Research

"Probably everything we do is a publicity stunt... we are not here to gather members, to please, to placate, to make friends. We're here to hold the radical line."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's president and founder, USA Today, September 3, 1991 Animal Welfare vs. Animal Rights

"The bottom line is that people don't have the right to manipulate or to breed dogs and cats... If people want toys, they should buy inanimate objects. If they want companionship, they should seek it with their own kind."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, founder, president and former national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), Animals, May/June 1993

This is just another example of a Socialist agenda to control the lives of others.

"If beef is your idea of 'real food for real people,' you'd better live real close to a real good hospital."
-- Neal Barnard, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), and PeTA's Medical Advisor, The Buffalo News, December 1, 1995

If it is going to cause us to die early, then what is the problem. Ingrid Newkirk has stated that "Humans have grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the earth."

"It's not about loving animals. It's about fighting injustice. My whole goal is for humans to have as little contact as possible with animals."
-- Gary Yourofsky, founder of Animals Deserve Adequate Protection Today and Tomorrow (ADAPTT), now employed as PeTA's national lecturer

"I will be the last person to condemn ALF (Animal Liberation Front)."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's president and founder, The New York Daily News, December 7, 1997

Well, here it is. PeTA has just sided with a Terrorist organization. And you thought that PeTA was interested in dogs and cats. They want control and they will work with people that will use terrorist tactics to achieve their goals.

"Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are 'acceptable crimes' when used for the animal cause."
-- Alex Pacheco, Director, PeTA
, ActivistCash.com

PeTA might be closer to a Terrorist group than previously thought.

"I wish we all would get up and go into the labs and take the animals out or burn them down."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, President, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, National Animal Rights Convention '97, June 27, 1997

PeTA is looking more and more like a Terrorist group itself.

"Would I rather the research lab that tests animals is reduced to a bunch of cinders? Yes."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's president and founder, New York Daily News, December 7, 1997

Just like the World Trade Center.

"Perhaps the mere idea of receiving a nasty missive will allow animal researchers to empathize with their victims for the first time in their lousy careers. I find it small wonder that the laboratories aren't all burning to the ground. If I had more guts, I'd light a match."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA founder and president, The Chronicle of Higher Education November 12, 1999

So now you are threatening the crime of Arson if you had the guts... as opposed to having the morals not to destroy property that does not belong to you.

"Meat consumption is just as dangerous to public health as tobacco use. It's time we looked into holding the meat producers and fast-food outlets legally accountable."
-- Neal Barnard, President of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and PeTA's Medical Advisor, PeTA, PCRM press release, "Physicians Advise Feds to Go After 'Big Meat' Next", September 23, 1999

"I despise 'animal welfare.' That's like saying, 'Let's beat the slaves three times a week instead of five times a week'."
-- Gary Yourofsky, founder, Animals Deserve Adequate Protection Today and Tomorrow (ADAPTT), PeTA's national lecturer, quoted in "As Threats of Violence Escalate, Primate Researchers stand Firm", Chronicle of Higher Education, Washington, DC, November 12, 1999

"We're looking for good lawsuits that will establish the interests of animals as a legitimate area of concern in law."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Insight on the News July 17, 2000

"Serving a burger to your family today, knowing what we know, constitutes child abuse. You might as well give them weed killer."
-- Toni Vernelli European Campaign Director, PeTA, PeTA Europe news release, "Meat Expo Declared A 'Danger Zone' By Vegetarians: PeTA Targets Smithfield 2000" November 27, 2000

These people want nothing more than to control your way you live, not just telling you how to live your life. So much for the idea of "Freedom".

"What we must do is start viewing every cow, pig, chicken, monkey, rabbit, mouse, and pigeon as our family members."
-- Gary Yourofsky, Humane Education Director, PeTA, The Toledo Blade, June 24, 2001

"If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then, of course, we're going to be blowing things up and smashing windows. For the record, I don't do this stuff, but I advocate it. I think it's a great way to bring about animal liberation, considering the level of suffering, the atrocities."
-- Bruce Friedrich, PeTA's director of Vegan Outreach, Animal Rights Conference, 2001

"I don't do this stuff, but I advocate it." It sounds like you know it is wrong. Yet you advocate it. You will not take part in the destruction of the property of others, but you do not mind of others actively participate in such criminal activity. You are no better than the Germans that looked the other way while millions were marched to the death camps. But then PeTA doesn't believe that those people were any better than rats.

"Mr. McVeigh's decision to go vegetarian groups him with some of the world's greatest visionaries, including Albert Schweitzer, Mohandas Gandhi, Leo Tolstoy and Albert Einstein."
-- Bruce Friedrich, PeTA Campaign Director, Vegan Campaign Coordinator

"I see a spark of hope in every broken window, every torched police car."
-- Joshua Harper, recipient of PeTA funds, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, June 18, 2001

"Physically shut down financial centers... Using any means necessary, shut down the national networks of NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, etc. Not just occupations but actually engage in strategies and tactics which knock the networks off the air... Spread the battle to the... very heads of government and U.S. corporations... When you see the loss of 9 billion animal lives each year, it's inappropriate to hold a sign or pass out a petition. It's appropriate to go out and burn down the factory farm."
-- Joshua Harper, recipient of PeTA funds, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, June 18, 2001

And here are the calls for the Terrorists activities. Don't tell me that these people are not Terrorists.

"I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories and the banks who fund them exploded tomorrow. I think it's perfectly appropriate for people to take bricks and toss them through windows. Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do it."
-- Bruce Friedrich, PeTA Campaign Director, Vegan Campaign Coordinator, Animal Rights 2001 Conference, July 2, 2001

"I openly hope that it [hoof-and-mouth disease] comes here. It will bring economic harm only for those who profit from giving people heart attacks and giving animals a concentration camp-like existence. It would be good for animals, good for human health and good for the environment."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA founder and president, ABC News interview April 2, 2001

Hoping that disease is inflicted on animals. It is not exactly what you think of when you think of PeTA. Maybe PeTA isn't exactly the benevolent organization that everyone thinks it is after all.

It kind of makes you wonder if the Hoof-and-Mouth disease was not brought into this country by PeTA. They seem to be motivated to see that it does extreme economic damage. It is certainly on par with many of their tactics.

"Our nonviolent tactics are not as effective. We ask nicely for years and get nothing. Someone makes a threat, and it works."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, US News and World Report, April 8, 2002

There is nothing non-violent about PeTA. It has been documented here by the words that you use. Nothing has been taken out of context. Ingrid Newkirk, the founder and President of PeTA, has openly advocated violence and the spread of disease.

"I'm not only uninterested in having children. I am opposed to having children. Having a purebred human baby is like having a purebred dog; it is nothing but vanity, human vanity."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, New Yorker magazine, April 23, 2003

For the leader of an organization that is based on animal welfare, you don't seem to know much about the normal and natural pre-disposition that is genetically hardwired into all beings to reproduce.

"A burning building doesn't help melt people's hearts, but times change and tactics, I'm sure, have to change with them... If you choose to carry out ALF-style actions, I ask you to please not say more than you need to, to think carefully who you trust, to learn all you can about how to behave if arrested, and so to try to live to fight another day."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Interview in ALF quarterly Bite Back, February, 2003

Talk about the wink and nod approval. It does not seem that Ms. Newkirk is trying to stand against terrorism and violence. In fact, it seems that she is actively encouraging it.

"If an 'animal abuser' were killed in a research lab firebombing, I would unequivocally support that, too."
-- Gary Yourofsky, founder of Animals Deserve Adequate Protection Today and Tomorrow (ADAPTT), now employed as PeTA's national lecturer

Here is another example of the true goals of what these people want. The control of every aspect of your life. So much for the idea of "Freedom". And they will do whatever they have to do to make it happen.

"We are complete press sluts."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's president and founder, The New Yorker, April 14, 2003

"Probably everything we do is a publicity stunt ... we are not here to gather members, to please, to placate, to make friends. We're here to hold the radical line."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, USA Today, September 3, 1991

"There is so much blood on this chicken-killer's hands, a little more on his business suit won't hurt."
-- Bruce Friedrich, PeTA Director of Vegan Outreach, PeTA news release, June 23, 2003

"Our campaigns are always geared towards children and they always will be."
-- PeTA Vice-President Dan Matthews, on the Fox News Network December 19, 2003

"Getting arrested is fun."
-- Dan Mathews, PeTA's director of international campaigns quoted in Orange County Weekly (CA), July 25 - 31, 2003

"Do you know that fat little guy from Seinfeld? He has become the main pitchman for KFC, Jason Alexander. And beginning in May he is going to star in the West Coast production of 'The Producers.' It's made for us. We can be slamming him as the play opens. If we do this properly, he will wish he never saw a chicken."
-- Dan Matthews, Director of Media Relations, PeTA: The New Yorker, April 14, 2003 On Free Press

I guess that Dan Matthews now is advocating the intimidation tactics that terrorist use as a matter of course.

"It is dangerous to engage in even the most innocuous-seeming discourse with the FBI, Homeland Security, or a local detective."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Letter to activists posted on Yahoo, March 17, 2003

If you are that paranoid, then you are either in need of psychological help or you are doing something illegal.

"KFC has no excuse for refusing to adopt these basic, minimal animal-welfare standards... After two years of fruitless negotiations with the company, we're trying a more personal approach."
-- Bruce Friedrich, PeTA Director quoted in August 19, 2003 PeTA press release announcing PeTA's intent to dispatch activists to Louisville, KFC's headquarters, to interact with the community, churches, institutions, neighbors of KFC's president, and CEO, etc., in order to get KFC to submit to PeTA's demands

"...we're trying a more personal approach." Translated that means "...physical attacks and intimidation will be necessary to get what we want. We might even be forced to kill someone and there is nothing that anyone can do to stop us."

And finally we have the truth from an animal rights supporter.

"They [PeTA] aren't interested in welfare of animals they are interested in complete animal rights. That's why they are an animal rights organization."
-- Salena Gomez, Animal Rights sympathizer, August 20, 2010

"To explain the difference between animal welfare and complete animal rights its basically just this: Animal welfare is to make laws and things where animals such as pets and livestock and even wildlife are better protected from humans where they have better living conditions then they do now and if they were violated the human would suffer harder punishment then they do with current animal protection laws. Complete animal rights on the other hand is basically giving animals their basic rights most importantly their freedom from humans."
-- Salena Gomez, Animal Rights sympathizer, August 20, 2010

Animal Defense League (ADL)
Animal Liberation Front (ALF)
Earth First!
Earth Liberation Front (ELF)
Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC)

(There are no significant differences in the beliefs of any of these groups or people!)

"Breeders must be eliminated.If you know of a breeder in the area, whether commercial or private, legal or illegal, let us know and we will post their name, location, phone number."
-- Animal Defense League (ADL)

Anyone that owns animals is considered a criminal by these people. To these people, any interaction with animals is counter to their agenda and against everything they believe. Everything they do and believe in, the welfare of animals is the excuse for their actions.

"As my close colleague, Dr. Jerry Vlasak, surmised - and I back him 100% on this - the assassination of a vivisector or two would probably save millions of nonhuman animal lives. And given the escalating situation at UCLA, who knows what may happen?"
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner. Jason Miller is also a Press Officer for the North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAAPO)

When you least expect it, in a hallway or on an elevator, in the stairwell or going to your car after torturing primates all day, you'll get a much bigger puncture from a 10cc syringe right in your back filled with rat poison, and we'll be gone so fast you'll never know who did it. We know where you go during the day, we know where you do your dry cleaning, we know where you shop and we know that you will end up being cornered and taught a lesson you and your family will never forget. Until you end your experimentation on primates, we'll be in your life forever watching, waiting and then doing to you exactly what you do to them.
-- An Animal Liberation Front (ALF) Communiqué threatening UCLA researchers as reported by Jerry Vlasak's North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAAPO) website on 26 March 2009

"Hunting accidents are a beautiful manifestation of karma. Nearly every US citizen in the animal liberation movement has the same 2nd Amendment right to bear arms as hunters and probably loves the outdoors as much (if not more than) those who hunt. Wouldn't it be unfortunate if there were a sudden epidemic of hunting accidents?"
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner 25 July 2009. Jason Miller is also a Press Officer for the North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAAPO)

This group definitely wants to kill someone to make their point. It is not a matter of IF someone will be killed, but WHEN.

"Destruction of property, equipment, buildings, machinery, laboratories, and virtually any inanimate human construct or "resource" used in the exploitation, oppression, maiming, raping, or murder of human animals, other animals, or the Earth is not violence. It may be illegal under a system that fetishizes property and profits, but it is not unethical. In fact, in many cases it is the right thing to do."
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner

"...the animal liberation movement needs to embrace 'counter-violence to protect innocent beings' as one of many tactics in the war to end the animal holocaust. Attacks on incorrigible, empathy-deficient, sociopathic speciesist animal torturers and murderers by courageous underground militants are both necessary and morally acceptable aspects of the fight to liberate nonhuman animals. From an ethical standpoint, such acts would be readily justifiable as a form of extensional self-defense on behalf of voiceless, defenseless sentient beings."
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner

"As ridiculously out-numbered as we are, and in light of the overwhelming power of our enemy, we need to confront this multi-headed hydra with as many tactics of asymmetrical engagement and with as much determination as we can muster, battling them within the framework of the inherently corrupt political and legal systems that are heavily stacked in the favor of anthropocentric murderers... and undertaking various forms of direct action on behalf of the billions of nonhuman animals immiserated and annihilated by speciesist capitalism every year."
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner

Yet again, here is the call for the use of violence. There is nothing peaceful about these groups.

"It is the plumbing of that capitalist system that we are using as we flush the future of life on Earth down the toilet."
-- Jason Miller, relentless anti-capitalist, animal liberationist, and senior editor and founder of Thomas Paine's Corner

Here we have an example of the Marxist Doctrine embedded within the Animal Rights Movement showing their true agenda. It is not the care of animals that is important, but rather the advancement of anti-Capitalist, anti-Free Enterprise, and anti-Business agendas they advance and support. The destruction of Capitalism that is their main agenda. Animals Rights is merely a tool used as a means to an end.

"I suspect that eradicating small pox was wrong. It played an important part in balancing ecosystems."
-- John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

"Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs."
-- John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

It is always refreshing to see the respect that these people have for their fellow man. These quotes illustrate the self-hatred of the Animal Rights Movement.

"My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure, and have wilderness, with it's full complement of species, returning throughout the world."
--Dave Foreman, Club of Rome, Bilderberger, and co-founder of Earth First!

"As in China, the act of childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license.... All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing."
-- David Brower, first executive director of the Sierra Club; founder of Friends of the Earth; and founder of the Earth Island Institute

Once again we see how it is control that these people seek. They do not care about animals at all, but use the subject of Animal Rights as a reason to implement their agenda of controlling the lives as possible. Do not believe that these people care about freedom or anyone's rights.

"So-called activists who talk to the police disgust me, and I think one of the major reasons the animal liberation movement has not made more significant gains is because many activists do not understand the evolutionary nature of this movement. We're fighting a major war, defending animals and our very planet from human greed and destruction. There is no room for collaborators."
-- David Barbarash, Spokesperson for the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) No Compromise, the journal of the Animal Liberation Front

"I am convinced that we can shut down a lot of these animal abuse industries whether the public agrees with it or not. And whether these industries are shut down by violent or non-violent acts in the end, to me, doesn't really matter."
-- David Barbarash, Animal Liberation Front Spokesman, BBC Documentary, "Beastly Business", October 2000

"No one is gonna listen to people walking in the streets with signs, not if there's profit on the line. But something will happen when there's people in the street with Molotov cocktails."
-- Zachary Jenson, Earth Liberation Front (ELF) activist, quote from his online journal

"In a war you have to take up arms and people will get killed, and I can support that kind of action by petrol bombing and bombs under cars, and probably at a later stage, the shooting of vivisectors on their doorsteps. It's a war, and there's no other way you can stop vivisectors."
-- Tim Daley, Animal Liberation Front Leader, BBC interview, 1987

"We will break the law and destroy property until we win."
-- Steven Best, International Animal Rights Gathering 2005

I am sure that at some point, Timothy McVeigh had that same conversation. And we know where that ended. How are these people not terrorists?

"There's no end to what we can do to HLS. We'll take out their customers, their workers. There are a lot of options... There will be windows broken and cars flipped..."
-- Kevin Jonas, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC)

"The AIDS epidemic, rather than being a scourge, is a welcome development in the inevitable reduction of human population... If it didn't exist, radical environmentalists would have to invent it."
-- Dave Foreman, Earth First! and Sierra Club director, 1995-1997

"The blood of timber executives is my natural drink, and the wail of dying forest supervisors is music to my ears." A charming cartoon in the same Journal says: "Trees are for hanging. Kill a developer."
-- Dave Foreman, Earth First! founder and Sierra Club director, 1995-1997

Oh yeah, this is a non-violent group! (Note sarcastic tone)

"More than anything we applied arson, and effectively we destroyed -- um, let's see -- the Northwest Fur Breeders Cooperative in Edmonds, Washington, which we hit a week later after OSU. We hit Washington State University's Eastern Washington experimental fur farm. We did get seven coyotes out of there, six mink, and ten mice... We burned down a fur farm that was on the market to be sold, in Oregon also. We went to the Michigan State University's experimental fur farm program and destroyed thirty-two years of research, by using fire once again, and rescued two mink from there."
-- Rodney Coronado, convicted felon for 1992 firebombing of a research facility at Michigan State University, at -- SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

There is no doubt that these people are Terrorists. They are not passive by any stretch of the imagination. These are dangerous people in every sense.

"Getting together three or four friends of mine, we came back a week later to that farm, we broke into the main laboratory, we trashed every single piece of equipment, we stole documents and lists of fur farms across the nation. And we started a fire in an experimental fur farm, an experimental feed building, where they manufactured the experimental diets which were the focus of research at this farm. And that fire destroyed all the equipment, and in the ensuing raid, the raid that happened caused enough damage that six months later that lab was forced to shut down. That was five people, folks -- once again maybe like twelve hundred dollars, a couple weeks of planning, five people. But that wasn't the end. I knew I had to continue, and for the next -- oh gosh, a little over a year -- we took out, one by one, every recipient of what's called the Mink Farmers Research Foundation. It's a foundation whose sole purpose is to aid research to benefit the fur farm industry."
-- Rodney Coronado, convicted felon for 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and PeTA funds beneficiary, speaking at -- SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

"Here's a little model I'm going to show you here. I didn't have any incense, but, this is a crude incendiary device. It is a simple plastic jug, which you fill with gasoline and oil. You put in a sponge, which is soaked also in flammable liquid. I couldn't find an incense stick, but this represents that. You put the incense stick in here, light it, place it underneath the 'weapon of mass destruction,' light the incense stick, sandalwood works nice, and you destroy the profits that are brought about through animal and earth abuse. That's about two dollars. "
-- Rodney Coronado, animal rights felon for the 1992 Michigan State University firebombing, and recipient of PeTA funds, speaking at the National conference on Organized Resistance, American University, Washington DC, January 26, 2003.

Note: PeTA donated $45,200 to the Coronado Support Committee in 1995. During the previous year, while Coronado was still on the loose and living underground, PeTA granted a loan (not yet repaid) to Coronado's father for $25,000.

"When you're a 20-something grassroots activist, and you're deciding how to spend your time and money to make a difference, it makes a lot of sense to cause a million in damage with just $100 of investment. That's a better return than any other form of activism I've been involved in."
-- Rodney Coronado, LA Weekly, August 29, 2003

No one can say that Rodney Coronado is not a threat to the American public.

"I would be overjoyed when the first scientist is killed by a liberation activist."
-- Vivien Smith, Former ALF Spokesperson, USA Today, September 3, 1991

Just another example of the violence inherent in the "Peace" and "Animal Rights" Movements.

"Setting fire to the feed truck falls within the work they [the ALF] do. It was most likely done in an effort to cause the most damage possible to the farm without hurting anyone or any animals. What these farmers do to chickens is terrorism -- what we do is not."
-- David Barbarash, Associated Press story filed after the arson of a poultry truck in Indiana caused $100,000 in damage, July 3, 2000

Just like the 9-11 hijackers were not Terrorists.

"What I'm continuing to do is cutting out the equation that wastes the most amount of time - and that is working within the system."
-- Rodney Coronado, Earth Liberationist, convicted arsonist in 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and beneficiary of PeTA funds

"A lot of people think that -- Oh my god, that's going too far, you know. People can support bringing animals out of labs, but they can't support arson. Well, I'm sorry. I'm not here to, to please people. I'm not here to win the support of people. I'm here to represent my animal relations who are suffering this very second. And I don't care what anybody says about what I do to achieve their freedom."
-- Rodney Coronado, convicted felon for 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and PeTA beneficiary, speaking at -- SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

Rodney Coronado is a person that wants to make a name for himself and he doesn't care whom he has to hurt in order to do it. This is that selfishness that is so characteristic of these Socialist/Anarchist movements.

"Animal liberation, of which the anti-vivisection movement is a part, animal liberation is not a campaign. It is not a struggle. It is a war! It is an all-out bloody war, in which the countless hundreds of millions of casualties have, so far, all been on one side. How can we allow that to continue?"
-- Robin Webb, British spokesperson for animal rights terrorism, speaking at SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

It is an easy war when no one is actually shooting back at you.

"The ALF does not wave banners or leaflet neighbors. Our type of home visit involves red paint, breaking windows and criminal damage."
--Robin Webb, British Animal Rights Terrorist, as reported in the "Telegraph.co.uk" in an article by Aislinn Simpson on 27 December 2007

"It doesn't matter if there are people in there. They're irrelevant! It doesn't matter about the police. They're irrelevant! It doesn't matter about the high fences. They're irrelevant! It doesn't matter about the doors. They're irrelevant! It doesn't matter about the locks. They're irrelevant! What matters is our brothers and sisters in there. Smash everything when the cops aren't here! Get them out!"... "We'll sweep the police aside. We'll sweep the government aside. We'll sweep Huntingdon Life Sciences aside, and we'll raze this evil place right to the ground!"
--Robin Webb, British Animal Rights Terrorist, Speaking at a SHAC rally, East Millstone, New Jersey, outside a medical research facility, December 1, 2002

What part of this is not Terrorism?

"Property destruction is a legitimate political tool called economic sabotage, and it's meant to attack businesses and corporations."
-- David Barbarash, Spokesperson for the Animal Liberation Front, NPR radio show, "The Connection" January 7, 2002

"Behind every corporation there are people who have homes and liability and privacy issues."
-- Kevin Kjonaas, SHAC leader and spokesperson, quoted in the Mercury News, San Jose, California, May 10, 2003

You mean everyday, working people. Those are your targets. What a brave individual you are. Targeting working people and children. Just like the 9-11 hijackers, this IS Terrorism... and you are Terrorists.

"We have a 100 per cent success rate. Whomever we choose to target is finished."
-- Heather James, SHAC co-leader , London Evening Standard, March 29, 2004

"Last night in San Diego a bunch of townhouses were burned down, and reporters from two corporate TV stations just asked me, 'What good does that do your movement?'... If that hadn't happened, you wouldn't be here tonight. People willing to risk their lives to protect the environment by destroying buildings built on the habitat of endangered species make people take notice... Fire is a very sacred power, one of the key elements of our planet...We use fire to cleanse ourselves, and when we address buildings and institutions that have no other purpose but to destroy life, fire is the only way to stop them. When people ask if someday someone might get hurt by one of our actions, I ask them why they don't get so concerned about the people who are killing animals for a living. That is what the terrorism in this society is. Destroying property to protect life is the most sacred thing we can do."
-- Rodney Coronado, Earth Liberationist, convicted arsonist in 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and beneficiary of PeTA funds, speaking "Revolution Summer" in Hillcrest, CA (a suburb of San Diego), August 1, 2003, the day a $50 million fire credited to the Earth Liberation Front torched an apartment construction project, Zenger's Newsmagazine, 2003

This man needs to be stopped. When he kills someone, is that going to stop him? Of course not. It will be considered collateral damage. Just like Timothy McVeigh stated about the children that he killed in Oklahoma City.

"As a direct-action warrior, it made a lot of sense to me to attack institutions in the fur trade... we need to destroy them by any means necessary."
-- Rodney Coronado, convicted felon of 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and beneficiary of PeTA funds, "Conference on Organized Resistance," American University, January 26, 2003

"While innocent life will never be harmed in any action we undertake, where it is necessary, we will no longer hesitate to pick up the gun to implement justice, and provide the needed protection for our planet that decades of legal battles, pleading, protest, and economic sabotage have failed so drastically to achieve."
-- Earth Liberation Front issued a communiqué claiming responsibility for an arson attack on a U.S. Forest Service research facility in Irvine, PA in 2002

"Throughout the late '80s, me and a handful of friends just like you people here, we started to break windows, we started to slash tires, we started to rescue animals from factory farms and vivisection breeders, and we graduated to breaking into laboratories... As long as we emptied the labs of animals, they were still easily replaced. So that's when the ALF in this country, and my cell, started engaging in arson."
-- Rodney Coronado, convicted felon for 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and PeTA funds beneficiary, speaking at SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

I guess "Murder" is next on the agenda.

"If a car being blown up in a driveway or animals being liberated from a lab scares them, then I would say that fear pales by comparison to the fear that the animals have every day. The kind of true violence that these animals endure at the hands of people at Huntingdon leaves me with little sympathy."
-- Kevin Kjonaas, National Director and spokesperson, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA, (SHAC USA); spokesperson, Animal Defense League; New York organizer, Viva! USA; as quoted in A harsh animal-rights campaign targets NJ firm, workers. Chris Mondics, The Philadelphia Inquirer, July 14, 2002

"We're a new breed of activism. We're not your parents' Humane Society. We're not Friends of Animals. We're not Earth Save. We're not Greenpeace. We come with a new philosophy. We hold the radical line. We will not compromise! We will not apologize, and we will not relent!... Vivisection is not an abstract concept. It's a deed, done by individuals, who have weaknesses, who have breaking points, and who have home addresses!"
-- Kevin Kjonaas, animal extremist and National Leader-spokesperson for Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA, (SHAC-USA) rally, East Millstone, New Jersey, outside a medical research facility, December 1, 2002

Just one more example of the violence inherent in the "Peace" and "Animal Rights" Movements.

"Although fish and chip shops haven't been targeted before so far as I can remember, they would be considered legitimate targets."
-- Robin Webb, UK Spokesperson for animal rights terrorism, The Independent 12 January 2001

So now, they are going after the small business people. Just working people trying to get by and live their lives. And they are now targets of Domestic Terrorists.

"Our philosophy is to go for one company at a time, and go for its finances. If we had gone down and protested outside HLS every day for the last five years we would have got nowhere,"
-- Greg Avery, SHAC, BBC Online, October 5, 2004

"The $10,000 microscope was destroyed in about 10 seconds with a steel wrecking bar we purchased... for less than $5. We consider that a pretty good return on our investment."
-- ALF memo about destruction of lab at University of Oregon Oct. 1986

"I think food producers should appreciate that we're only targeting their property. Because frankly I think it's time to start targeting them."
-- Rodney Coronado, convicted felon for the 1992 firebombing of Michigan State University research facility (57 months in federal prison, 3 years probation), speaking at the "Conference on Organized Resistance," American University, January 26, 2003

No one believed me when I said that these people were Terrorists. Now they will target whomever they please and for whatever reason they want to justify. Ordinary Americans are not safe from these people. Something needs to be done.

"Believe me, you don't have to worry about prison. I've been there -- it's a doggle. You can put your feet up and recharge your batteries, and go back out there when you're released and start all over again. You can go to education to read up. I mean someone, someone actually read up on electronics while they were in prison, and went out and started doing electronic incendiary devices. Use your time inside to teach yourself!"
-- Robin Webb, British Spokesperson for Animal Rights Terrorism, speaking at SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

Prison doesn't seem to work as far as rehabilitation. It only seems to make these Terrorists more dangerous. What other choices are there for the American public to protect themselves? According to Robin Webb, calling the police and going to court does no good.

"Huntingdon Life Sciences is going to close. You can't close it with those evil riot police there, but they're not always here! It's not always daylight... Come here when it's dark, when there's no moon, with people you can trust! There are individuals in there who need you to do that! But when you get them out, don't leave the equipment or the building standing either! Smash it! Smash it! Smash it once and for all!"
-- Robin Webb, British Animal Rights Terrorist, speaking at a Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) rally, East Millstone, New Jersey, outside a medical research facility, December 1, 2002

"The employees are not good people, and do not deserve to enjoy the Holiday season. Let's make this one so stressful, they won't be able to balance their hot cider between shaking hands."
-- E-mail message dated December 15, 2002 from (SHAC) Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty

"Why should any one of us feel that 'it shouldn't be me taking that brick and chucking it through that window? Why shouldn't I be going to that fur farm down the road and opening up those cages?' It's not hard; it doesn't take a rocket scientist. You don't need a 4-year degree to call in a bomb hoax. These are easy things, and they're things that save animals: And so I want all of you in this room to question not just what is right and wrong, but what is effective, and why can't all of us be doing it? I think the animal rights movement is strong - that's my opinion. But it's time to start flexing our muscles."
-- Kevin Kjonaas, Spokesperson and National Director, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA) "Animal Rights 2002" convention, June 30, 2002

"In light of the events on September 11, my country has told me that I should not cooperate with terrorists. I therefore am refusing to cooperate with members of Congress who are some of the most extreme terrorists in history."
-- Craig Rosebraugh , animal rights radical, spokesperson for animal and earth related crimes and recipient of PeTA funds, statement following Rosebraugh's subpoena to testify before a Congressional subcommittee on eco-terrorism, November 1, 2001

"We encourage others to find a local Earth raper and make them pay for the damages they are inflicting on our communities... Furriers, meat packers, bosses, developers, rich industry leaders are all Earth rapers... We must inflict economic sabotage on all Earth rapers."
-- Craig Rosebraugh , recipient of PeTA funds, Spokesperson for Earth Liberation Front statement, August 1, 1999

Why is it that we keep finding associations with PeTA. It sounds like PeTA is underwriting Terrorism. And they don't even seem to be ashamed of it, but rather proud of it.

"Bank executives have had their yachts sunk behind their houses. Cars have been blown up; windows have been smashed; offices have been stormed. We're tired of yelling at buildings -- no one cares. We're tired of yelling at executives while they're in those buildings, and allowing them to go home and forget about us who are out there that afternoon -- we're going to their homes. We're doing what's effective. We're shutting this company down."
-- Lauren James, Organizer, "Conference on Organized Resistance," American University, January 26, 2003

"Sometimes breaking the law, and sometimes pushing the boundaries of what's told to us is... what is right and wrong, doesn't matter. And it comes down to questioning what is effective and what is not effective."
-- Kevin Kjonaas, Spokesperson and National Director for Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA), speaking at "Animal Rights 2002" convention, June 30, 2002

With that statement, Kevin Kjonaas admits that what SHAC is doing is against the law. He admits he is a criminal. Criminals need to be stopped. And stopping criminals is not a crime.

"Hit them in their personal lives, visit their homes... Actively target U.S. military establishments within the United States... strike hard and fast and retreat in anonymity. Select another location, strike again hard and fast and quickly retreat in anonymity... Do not get caught. DO NOT GET CAUGHT. Do not get sent to jail. Stay alert, keep active, and keep fighting."
-- Craig Rosebraugh , radical animal rights spokesperson for terrorism and a recipient of PeTA funds, in Open letter to activists, published on the Independent Media Center website, March 17, 2003

I thought that was Osama Bin Ladin for a moment.

"Today's terrorist is tomorrow's freedom fighter."
-- Kevin Kjonaas, National Director and spokesperson, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA) Animal Rights 2002 Convention, June 30, 2002

"Every time a police agency pepper-sprays or uses pain-compliance holds against our people, their cars should burn."
-- Rodney Coronado, convicted felon in the 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and beneficiary of PeTA funds, "Conference on Organized Resistance," American University, January 26, 2003

Won't someone stop this Terrorist!!!

"Whether or not the public regards... direct action as fringe or as extremist or terroristic or whatever label they want to put on it, doesn't really matter to us because the public at large is apathetic and is going to sit on its ass regardless of whether it agrees with us or not."
-- Kevin Kjonaas, National Director, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA); spokesperson, Animal Defense League; New York organizer, Viva! USA; quoted in Animal rights advocates clash with U. Minnesota researchers. Dylan Thomas, Minnesota Daily, University of Minnesota, November 11, 2002

"...because the public at large is apathetic and is going to sit on its ass..." This just shows that Kevin Kjonaas is doing this for his own selfish motives. And he doesn't care who gets hurt.

"In England we do have some problems with legislation that prevents us from buying certain products, but over here you don't have the same excuse. You've heard Black Panther leader Mr. Bobby Seale: you're allowed to bear arms. Why are you here now listening to me? You can go out and get animal liberation!"
-- Robin Webb, British Animal Rights Terrorist, speaking at a Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

Does this qualify Robin Webb as an International Terrorist?

"Here's a little model I'm going to show you here. I didn't have any incense, but -- this is a crude incendiary device. It is a simple plastic jug, which you fill with gasoline and oil. You put in a sponge, which is soaked also in flammable liquid -- I couldn't find an incense stick, but this represents that. You put the incense stick in here, light it, place it -- underneath the 'weapon of mass destruction,' light the incense stick - sandalwood works nice -- and you destroy the profits that are brought about through animal and earth abuse. That's about -- two dollars."
-- Rodney Coronado, animal rights felon for the 1992 Michigan State University firebombing, and recipient of PeTA funds, speaking at "National conference on Organized Resistance, American University, Washington DC, January 26, 2003

"There are about 2,000 people prepared at any one time to take action for us... The children [of targeted scientists and executives] are enjoying a lifestyle built on the blood and abuse of innocent animals. Why should they be allowed to close the door on that and sit down and watch TV and enjoy themselves when animals are suffering and dying because of the actions of the family breadwinner? They are a justifiable target for protest."
-- Robin Webb, ALF leader, Sunday Herald ( Scotland) Sept. 19, 2004

And here we begin to target children for violence. And this is a surprise to whom?

Peter Singer

"Surely there will be some nonhuman animals whose lives, by any standards, are more valuable than the lives of some humans."
-- Peter Singer, Animal Liberation: A New Ethic for Our Treatment of Animals, 2nd ed. (New York: New York Review of Books, 1990), p. 19

"We are not especially 'interested in' animals. Neither of us had ever been inordinately fond of dogs, cats, or horses in the way that many people are. We didn't 'love' animals."
-- Peter Singer, Animal Liberation: A New Ethic for Our Treatment of Animals, 2nd ed. (New York Review of Books, 1990), Preface, p. ii. On Forming Political Alliances

So here it is. They do not care about animals at all. In this statement, Peter Singer, a recognized leader of Animal Rights, exposes the truth of the entire Animal Rights Movement!!!

"Your dog can show you when he or she wants to go for a walk and equally for nonviolent sexual contact, your dog or whatever else it is can show you whether he or she wants to engage in a certain kind of contact."
-- Peter Singer, godfather of the animal rights movement

What kind of behavior is Peter Singer trying to approve of as acceptable.

"We who have an affinity with non-human animals and nature are finding it increasingly difficult to love our fellow man."
-- Peter Singer

"Torturing a human being is almost always wrong, but it is not absolutely wrong."
-- Peter Singer, as quoted in Josephine Donovan "Animal Rights and Feminist Theory," Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, Winter 1990, p. 357

"An animal experiment cannot be justifiable unless the experiment is so important that the use of a brain-damaged human would be justifiable."
-- Peter Singer, Animal Liberation: A New Ethic for Our Treatment of Animals, 2nd ed. (New York Review of Books, 1990), p. 85

"I do not believe that it could never be justifiable to experiment on a brain-damaged human."
-- Peter Singer, Animal Liberation: A New Ethic for Our Treatment of Animals, 2nd ed. (New York: New York Review of Books, 1990), p. 85

So here we have someone that believes that it is wrong to experiment on animals, but it is OK to experiment on a brain damaged human. He is saying that humans are below rats. Not even level with them, but below them. Isn't that pretty much on par with the Nazi's during World War II? I would hate to think that this person would have any sort of an important job such as a teacher.

"There could conceivably be circumstances in which an experiment on an animal stands to reduce suffering so much that it would be permissible to carry it out even if it involved harm to the animal... even if the animal were a human being."
-- Peter Singer, "Animal Liberation: A New Ethic for Our Treatment of Animals", 2nd ed. (New York: New York Review of Books, 1990), p. 85

"In appropriate circumstances we are justified in using humans to achieve goals (or the goal of assisting animals)."
-- Peter Singer, in "Behavioral and Brain Sciences" (1990, Volume 3,), p. 46

Peter Singer has been professor of bioethics at Princeton University since 1999. Previously, he was professor of ethics at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

"This is an activist who has compassion for animals who made a statement with nothing more than a large firecracker."
-- Jerry Vlasak commenting on Daniel Andreas San Diego and the FBI's evidence involving him with setting two bombs that exploded outside Chiron in Emeryville on 28 August 2003, as well as one bomb that blew up outside of Shaklee in Pleasanton on 26 September 2003.

"They're using their constitutional right to free speech. They're not breaking any laws or breaking in to sabotage or destroying vehicles or equipment."
-- Jerry Vlasak, speaking about Linda Faith Greene of the North American Animal Liberation Press Office and Kevin Richard Olliff and their arrest in the attempted firebombing of UCLA Professor Lynn Fairbanks, San Diego Union-Tribune, 20 April 2009

"The University of California has been selected as the poster child of animal abuse at laboratories. It's been shown that the tactics are more effective if you just hit one person over and over and get them to quit what they're doing."
-- Jerry Vlasak, speaking about the firebombing of David Feldheim's home, forcing him, his wife and their two young children to flee down a fire escape

"If their father is willing to continue risking his livelihood in order to continue chopping up animals in a laboratory than his children are old enough to recognize the consequences. This guy knows what he is doing. He knows that every day that he goes into the laboratory and hurts animals that it is unreasonable not to expect consequences."
-- Jerry Vlasak, speaking about the firebombing of David Feldheim's home, forcing him, his wife and their two young children to flee down a fire escape

"The inconvenience and the suffering of any children or any family members pales in comparison to the suffering and oppression that goes on in these animal laboratories."
-- Jerry Vlasak, speaking about the firebombing of David Feldheim's home, forcing him, his wife and their two young children to flee down a fire escape

"This is historically what happens whenever revolutionaries begin to take the oppression and suffering of their fellow beings seriously, whether human or nonhuman. It's regrettable that certain scientists are willing to put their families at risk by choosing to do wasteful animal experiments in this day and age."
-- Jerry Vlasak, speaking about the firebombing of David Feldheim's home, forcing him, his wife and their two young children to flee down a fire escape

"...if you had to hurt somebody or intimidate them or kill them, it would be morally justifiable."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, speaking to "The Associated Press" making the moral justification for killing anyone associated with animal research

"Whatever it takes to stop someone from abusing animals is certainly morally acceptable"
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, speaking to "The Associated Press" making the moral justification for any action associated with animal research

"As far as the underground liberation movement, it won't have any impact at all because they don't really care about those laws. Their activities -- sabotaging, liberating animals -- are already illegal so just adding one more law won't make much difference."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, commenting on the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, November 2006

"Get arrested. Destroy the property of those who torture animals. Liberate those animals interned in the hellholes our society tolerates."

"I am personally not advocating violence. I am simply saying that it is a morally acceptable tactic and it may be useful in the struggle for animal liberation."

"Anybody who does business with this company, they become a legitimate target for the campaign."
-- Jerry Vlasak, an ALF spokesman and a physician in Los Angeles

"It won't ruin our movement if someone gets killed in an animal rights action. It's going to happen sooner or later. The Animal Liberation Front, the Earth Liberation Front -- sooner or later there's going to be someone getting hurt. And we have to accept that fact. It's going to happen. It's not going to hurt our movement. Our movement will go on. And it's important that we not let the bully pulpit of the FBI and the other oppression agencies stop us from what we're doing. They are the violent ones. They are the terrorists ... we have to keep doing what we're doing."
-- Jerry Vlasak, speech at the Animal Rights 2004 convention and spokesman for the Animal Defense League

"Lastly, anyone who believes in the possibility of total animal liberation while billions of humans continue to inhabit and decimate the planet is delusional. Only when most humans have died off will there be a chance to returning to a society that values all beings for who they are."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and the North American Animal Liberation Press Office

"Fear is an effective factor in altering behavior..."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and the North American Animal Liberation Press Office

"I don't think you'd have to kill -- assassinate -- too many [doctors involved with animal testing] ... I think for 5 lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, Animal Rights 2003 convention August 3, 2003

And I... you know... people get all excited about, 'Oh what's going to happen when - the ALF accidentally kills somebody in an arson?' Well, you know I mean... I think we need to get used to this idea. It's going to happen, okay? It's going to happen.
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League

"If someone is killing, on a regular basis, thousands of animals, and if that person can only be stopped in one way by the use of violence, then it is certainly a morally justifiable solution."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, "Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t!" (Showtime cable network) April 1, 2004

"I think we do need to embrace direct action and violent tactics as part of our movement... I don't think we ought to be criticizing someone, whether we're criticizing [them] because they're writing letters, or whether we criticize them because they're burning down fur stores or vivisection labs. I think we need to include everybody in that circle."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, Animal Rights 2002 convention June 27, 2002

"The police are protecting the circus, they are protecting the meat and dairy industry, they are protecting the vivisection industry and I equate them in my own mind on a moral and ethical level with the -- no different than say guards in a Nazi concentration camp."
-- Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Defense League, at a panel called "Coping with Law Enforcement" at the Animal Rights 2003 LA convention August 2, 2003

"If they won't stop when you ask them nicely, they don't stop when you demonstrate to them what they're doing is wrong, then they should be stopped using whatever means are necessary."
--Jerry Vlasak, ALF spokesman, In the 60 Minutes interview with Ed Bradley, aired on CBS on Sunday November 13, 2005

Elliot Katz

"It is time we demand an end to the misguided and abusive concept of animal ownership. The first step on this long, but just, road would be ending the concept of pet ownership."
-- Elliot Katz, President "In Defense of Animals", Spring 1997

"Our goal: to convince people to rescue and adopt instead of buying or selling animals, to disavow the language and concept of animal ownership."
-- Eliot Katz, President In Defense of Animals, In Defense of Animals website, 2001

Tom Regan

"Even granting that we [humans] face greater harm than laboratory animals presently endure if... research on these animals is stopped, the animal rights view will not be satisfied with anything less than total abolition."
-- Tom Regan, The Case for Animal Rights, 1983

"What could be the basis of our having more inherent value than animals? Their lack of reason, or autonomy, or intellect? Only if we are willing to make the same judgment in the case of humans who are similarly deficient."
-- Tom Regan, "The Case for Animal Rights," In Defense of Animals, Peter Singer, ed. (Oxford: Blackwell, 1985), p. 23

Question: "If you were aboard a lifeboat with a baby and a dog, and the boat capsized, would you rescue the baby or the dog?"
"If it were a retarded baby and a bright dog... I'd save the dog."

-- Tom Regan, "Animal Rights, Human Wrongs," speech given at University of Wisconsin, Madison, October 27, 1989

What is it about these people that is not horrifying? How unethical has the Animal Rights movement become? At the very least, it is probably a good idea not to go boating with Mr. Regan. He just does not seem all that dependable in a life or death situation.

"If it [abolition of animal research] means there are some things we cannot learn, then so be it. We have no basic right not to be harmed by those natural diseases we are heir to."
-- Tom Regan, as quoted in David T. Hardy, "America's New Extremists: What You Need to Know About the Animal Rights Movement." (Washington, DC: Washington Legal Foundation, 1990), p. 8

"In a perfect world, we would not keep animals for our benefit, including pets..."
-- Tom Regan, emeritus professor of philosophy at North Carolina State University and author of "Empty Cages" - speaking at University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, March 3, 2004

Gary Francione

"If an animal has any rights at all, it's got the right not to be eaten."
-- Gary Francione, speech, University of Minnesota Law School, November 6, 1991

The antelope would be quick to point that out to the lion. But would you stop the lion from killing and eating the antelope? Would you shoot the lion? Exactly where does is say that any animal has the right not to be eaten?

"As long as humans have rights and non-humans do not, as is the case in the welfarist framework, then non-humans will virtually always lose when their interests conflict with human interests. Thus welfare reforms, by their very nature, can only serve to retard the pace at which animal rights goals are achieved."
-- Gary Francione & Tom Regan, "A Movement's Means Create Its Ends," Animals' Agenda, Jan-Feb, 1992

"Not only are the philosophies of animal rights and animal welfare separated by irreconcilable differences... the enactment of animal welfare measures actually impedes the achievement of animal rights... Welfare reforms, by their very nature, can only serve to retard the pace at which animal rights goals are achieved."
-- Gary Francione and Tom Regan, "A Movement's Means Create Its Ends," The Animals' Agenda, January/February 1992, pp. 40-42

"The theory of animal rights simply is not consistent with the theory of animal welfare... Animal rights means dramatic social changes for humans and non-humans alike; if our bourgeois values prevent us from accepting those changes, then we have no right to call ourselves advocates of animal rights."
-- Gary Francione, The Animals' Voice, Vol. 4, No. 2, pp. 54-55

Wayne Pacelle and the Humane Society of the US (HSUS)

"We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take it state by state."
-- Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US (HSUS), formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, Full Cry Magazine, October 1, 1990

"If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would."
-- Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US (HSUS), formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, Associated Press, Dec 30, 1991

"Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting."
-- Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US (HSUS), formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, (Bozeman (MT) Daily Chronicle (October 8, 1991)

"We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. One generation and out. We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding."
-- Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP of Humane Society of the US, formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, Animal People, May 1993

"I don't want to see another dog or cat born"
-- Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US (HSUS)

"We would be foolish and silly not to unite with people in the public health sector, the environmental community, [and] unions, to try to challenge corporate agriculture."
-- Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US, formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, at the Animal Rights 2002" Convention, July 1, 2002

"The entire animal rights movement in the United States reacted with unfettered glee at the Ban in England ... We view this act of parliament as one of the most important actions in the history of the animal rights movement. This will energize our efforts to stop hunting with hounds."
-- Wayne Pacelle, CEO, Humane Society of the US (HSUS), London Times, December 26, 2004

"Humane care (of animals) is simply sentimental, sympathetic patronage."
-- Michael W. Fox, Humane Society of the US, in 1988 Newsweek interview

The mistake is to believe that these "Animal Rights Activists" actually care about animals at all. They DO NOT. They care about their own agenda using Animal Rights as an excuse.

"The life of an ant and the life of my child should be accorded equal respect."
-- Michael W. Fox, Vice-President, the Humane Society, The Associated Press, January 15, 1989

"The life of an ant and that of my child should be granted equal consideration."
-- Michael W. Fox, Scientific Director and former Vice President, The Humane Society of the United States, The Inhumane Society, New York, 1990

What about the life of an ant and the life of John P. Goodwin and Michael W. Fox? Should they be seen as equal? Are they saying that killing ants should be a crime or the killing children should be legal? Either way, he asserts his belief that his child (or any other child) is not worth anymore than an insect. Would you want to be Michael Fox's child?

[Expressing opposition to use of bug sprays] "Only a few of the million you kill would have bitten you."
-- Michael Fox, Scientific Director and former Vice President of Humane Society of the US (HSUS), Returning to Eden, Fox publication

"Man is the most dangerous, destructive, selfish, and unethical animal on earth."
-- Michael W. Fox, Scientific Director and former Vice President, Humane Society of the United States, as quoted in Robert James Bidinotto"

The proof is stated above with the acts of terrorism that the ALF, ELF, SHAC, PeTA, and other eco-terrorists acts that continue to threaten innocent and law abidding people.

Of course, this demonstrates exactly what they think of their fellow man. They have absolutely no use for anyone that does not share the same narrow-minded view of the world and anyone that falls into that catagory is a justifible target to these people.

"My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture."
-- John P. Goodwin, employed at the Humane Society of the US, formerly at Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade, as quoted on AR-Views, an animal rights Internet discussion group in 1996. Animal Equality and Anti-Humanity

"It's time for the animal rights movement to take this [fur] industry and drive the final nail into the coffin by whatever means it takes. If that means being outside the executives houses, if that means blockading their doors, whatever it takes."
-- John P. Goodwin, Humane Society of the US Campaign Director, former executive director of the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade, in speech at the World Congress for Animals, June 20, 1996

"We have found that civil disobedience and direct action has been powerful in generating massive attention in our communities... and has been very effective in traumatizing our targets."
-- John P. Goodwin, Committee to Abolish the Fur Trade, National Animal Rights Convention '97, June 27, 1997, now employed by the Humane Society of the United States

Misc. Activists

"I am going to come over and f*ck you up. "Stop doing research, or I'll come over and burn your f*cking house down! I'm gonna string you up and make your family watch!"
-- Justin Bhagat Thind, Animal Rights Activist in a phone call after obtaining phone numbers and personal information of several researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, September 2007

"Every newborn baby in Australia represents a potent source of greenhouse gas emissions for an average of 80 years, not simply by breathing but by the profligate consumption of resources typical of our society."
-- Professor Barry Walters calling childbearing "greenhouse unfriendly behavior", urges a one-time "baby levy" of $5,000, followed by an annual tax of $800 per child, on Australian families with more than two children

"The right to have children should be a marketable commodity, bought and traded by individuals but absolutely limited by the state."
-- Kenneth Boulding, originator of the "Spaceship Earth" concept as quoted by William Tucker in Progress and Privilege, 1982

"The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States: We can't let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the U.S. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are. And it is important to the rest of the world to make sure that they don't suffer economically by virtue of our stopping them."
-- Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund

More proof of the lunacy of the animal rights movement.

"The only real good technology is no technology at all. Technology is taxation without representation, imposed by our elitist species [man] upon the rest of the natural world."
-- John Shuttleworth, founder of The Mother Earth News magazine

"The collective needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs and desires of humans."
-- Dr. Reed F. Noss, The Wildlands Project

Here we have the voices that do everything to lower the standard of living for humans and raises animal rights above human rights. By their own definition of "rights", this is paramount to saying that humans do not have the right to exist and should be exterminated or pushed into extinction.

"Cannibalism is a radical but realistic solution to the problem of overpopulation."
-- Lyall Watson, The Financial Times 15 July, 1995

Wait a minute... what happened to the vegan lifestyle? The next logical question becomes who decides who we eat next for dinner?

"The earth is being destroyed and animals are being led to mechanized slaughter. I don't consider myself a terrorist, but the earth is being terrorized by corporate greed."
-- Chris McIntosh, 23-year-old animal rights "activist" who was sentenced to eight years in Seattle, WA for the 2004 torching of a McDonald's restaurant. He stated he was proud of his crime which he deemed necessary "to protect the public."

"For the sake of clarity, let us be uncomfortably honest: to snitch is to take a life. By words and by weapons, each day lives are taken in the most egregious of crimes. When this happens in the courtroom, we call it "cooperation". I call it violence, and I call anything done to keep an informant out of the courtroom "self defense".
-- Peter Young, animal liberation prisoner

Take a look at the selfishness in the way that radical environmentalists a.k.a. eco-terrorists sees any resistance to their actions. Harassment, Vandalism, and Arson are not considered as wrong if they inflict it on someone else, but somehow the punishment for these crimes is viewed as a violent crime in and of itself. Any action that causes them a hardship is a violent crime. If their actions harm someone else, then it is a legitimate action that should be praised and not condemned.

"Animal experiments occupy a central place in the material and spiritual edifice of our whole civilization. We are speaking here of one of those foundation stones whose removal could cause the whole house to collapse."
-- Rudolph Bahro, Building the Green Movement, trans. Mary Tyler (London: GMP, 1986) p. 203

"I would not knowingly have an animal hurt for me, or my children, or anything else."
-- Cleveland Armory, founder, Fund for Animals, Larry King Show, October 29, 1987

"My dream is that people will come to view eating an animal as cannibalism."
-- Henry Spira, director, Animal Rights International, as quoted in Barnaby J. Feder, "Pressuring Purdue," New York Times Magazine, November 26, 1989, p. 192

"If the death of one rat cured all diseases, it wouldn't make any difference to me."
-- Chris DeRose, director, Last Chance for Animals, as quoted in Elizabeth Venant and David Treadwell, "Biting Back," Los Angeles Times, April 12, 1990, p. E12

"The major success of this decade [the 1980s] has been the reapplication of the concept of rights in the human population to nonhuman species."
-- John Kullberg, president, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, as quoted in Charles Oliver, "Liberation Zoology," Reason, 22, No. 2 ,June 1990, p. 24

"Humans are exploiters and destroyers, self-appointed world autocrats around whom the universe seems to revolve."
-- Sydney Singer, director, the Good Shepherd Foundation, "The Neediest of All Animals," The Animals Agenda, Vol. 10, No. 5, June 1990, p. 50

"Liberating our language by eliminating the word 'pet' is the first step... In an ideal society where all exploitation and oppression has been eliminated, it will be NJARA's policy to oppose the keeping of animals as 'pets.'"
-- New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance, "Should Dogs Be Kept As Pets? NO!" Good Dog! February 1991, p. 20

"If you haven't given voluntary human extinction much thought before, the idea of a world with no people in it may seem strange. But, if you give it a chance, I think you might agree that the extinction of Homo Sapiens would mean survival for millions, if not billions, of Earth-dwelling species... Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental."
-- "Les U. Knight" (pseudonym), "Voluntary Human Extinction," Wild Earth, Vol. 1, No. 2, (Summer 1991), p. 72

The Animal Rights activists are always speaking about how the Human race is part of the natural environment and no better than the rest of nature. And here is one of them saying that the Human race is completely useless and not part of the natural world and should be completely eradicated from the earth. Lets face it, that is their true agenda. The world would be better without Mankind, but not better off with the loss of a rat. The fact is these people don't care one bit about the average American. In fact, from what the leaders of the Animal Rights groups have said, they consider all of us targets.

If you believe the human population is the reason for most of the suffering on this planet you should definitely look at "The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement".

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans anymore than black people were made for white or women were made for men."
-- Alice Walker

Animals exist in nature to exploit everything else in nature and do so for survival. Some animals must die so that others can live. It is the "Circle of Life". Some of those reasons that animals exist is to consume other animals. That is the natural world. That IS nature.

Women were made for men just as men were made for women. But we will concede that some women were not made for men and should be left alone as they are not equal to other women that are suitable for men. These are the ones that have the personality traits that cause them to become bitter, cold, and selfish with no hope of truly loving a man or allowing a man to love them. These type of women are often referred to as "feminists". Women of this type are definitely not made for men.

"Animal Fancies provide an escape from the real world, a sense of purpose in a lot of purposeless lives, a chance to play God by breeding animals, and a chance to play celebrity by showing them."
-- Phil Maggitti, The Animals' Agenda, December 1991

"Our goal is to make [the public think of] breeding [dogs and cats] like drunk driving and smoking."
-- Kim Sturla, former director of the Peninsula Humane Society and Western Director of Fund for Animals, stated during Kill the Crisis, not the Animals campaign and workshops, 1991

"If natural healing is not possible, given the energy of the environment, it may be right for that being to change form. Some people call this death."
-- Sydney Singer, director, Good Shepherd Foundation, The Earth Religion (Grass Valley, California: ABACE Publications, 1991), p. 52

"The animal rights movement is not concerned about species extinction. An elephant is no more or less important than a cow, just as a dolphin is no more important than a tuna... In fact, many animal rights advocates would argue that it is better for the chimpanzee to become extinct than to be exploited continually in laboratories, zoos and circuses."
-- Barbara Biel, The Animals' Agenda, Vol 15 #3

"Every new human brought into the world is a vote for humans and a death wish for animals. Everywhere humans and animals interact, there is a river of animal blood."
-- Freeman Wicklund, Executive Director, Animal Liberation League, No Compromise, September 1996

Every new lion brought into the world is a vote for lions and a death wish for antelope. Everywhere lions and antelope interact, there is a river of animal blood.

"Everyone who agrees unnecessary animal suffering should be ended must eat no animal food products."
-- David J. Cantor, Farm Sanctuary Investigator: Letter to the Editor, Kansas City Star, complaining about a reporter who refused to give up eating meat, December 11, 2000

"Grocers who sell veal have no idea what's coming... If they have me arrested, that's good for me, and bad for them. We have 75,000 members of our club who aren't going to like it."

"For 35 million chickens in the United States alone, every single night is a terrorist attack, if the victim's experience counts and human agency is acknowledged... While I would not dream of using arguments to diminish the horror of the September 11 attack for thousands of people, I would also suggest that the people who died in the attack did not suffer more terrible deaths than animals in slaughterhouses suffer every day. Moreover, the survivors of the September 11 attack and their loved ones have an array of consolations, patriotism, the satisfaction of U.S. retaliation, religious faith, TV ads calling them heroes, etc.? that the chickens, whose lives are continuously painful and miserable, including being condemned to live in human-imposed circumstances that are inimical and alien to them as chickens, do not have available."
-- Karen Davis, President, United Poultry Concerns, Vegan Voice, December 26, 2001

"I say that a minimum level of autonomy, the abilities to desire, to act intentionally and to have some sense of self, whatever the species is sufficient to justify the basic legal right to bodily integrity... African gray parrots and African elephants are entitled to basic rights. Based on what is known, dogs and honeybees are not. But who knows what exciting breakthroughs tomorrow's research may bring?"
-- Steven Wise, Center for the Expansion of Fundamental Rights, Inc., Nature magazine, April 26, 2002

"If we are not able to bring the churches, the synagogues, [and] the mosques around to the animal rights view, we will never make large-scale progress for animal rights in the United States."
-- Norm Phelps, Program Director, Fund for Animals: "Animal Rights 2002" convention, July 2, 2002

"If enough people are determined to stand up to an issue, you know what? It's gonna get solved. Saying that human concerns outweigh animal concerns is just more bullshit."
-- Chris DeRose, Last Chance for Animals: SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

"Breeders must be eliminated! As long as there is a surplus of companion animals in the concentration camps referred to as "shelters", and they are killing them because they are homeless, one should not be allowed to produce more for their own amusement and profit. If you know of a breeder in the Los Angeles area, whether commercial or private, legal or illegal, let us know and we will post their name, location, phone number so people can write them letters telling them 'Don't Breed or Buy, While Others DIE.'" "Breeders! Let's get rid of them too!"
-- Campaign on Animal Defense League's website, September 2, 2003

"Once we get three more directors elected, the Sierra Club will no longer be pro-hunting and pro-trapping and we can use the resources of the $95-million-a-year budget to address some of these issues."
-- Paul Watson, Sierra Club Board member, Founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Greenpeace, NY Times, March 16, 2004

"Earthworms are far more valuable than people. The world will be a much nicer place without us humans."
-- Paul Watson, Sierra Club Board member, Founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Greenpeace

"I got the impression that instead of going out to shoot birds, I should go out and shoot the kids who shoot birds."
-- Paul Watson, founder of Greenpeace, as quoted by Dixy Lee Ray in her book "Trashing the Planet" (1990)

"So far no one on the other side has ever been seriously harmed or killed. But that may now change."
-- Ronnie Lee

That sure sounds like a warning of things to come. Again, do not say that these people are not dangerous. To make the claim that these people are nothing but peaceful and non-violent activists is ludicrous.

"We have given all of the collaborators a chance to withdraw from their relations [with Huntingdon Life Sciences]. We will now be doubling the size of every device we make. Today it is 10 lbs, tomorrow 20....until your buildings are nothing more than rubble. It is time for this war to truly have two sides. No more will all of the killing be done by the oppressors, now the oppressed will strike back. We will be non-violent when these people are non-violent to the animal nations."
-- Communiqué from the Revolutionary Cells Animal Liberation Brigade after the 2003 bombings of Chiron and Shaklee Corporations

Within the agenda of fanaticism and the willingness to harm human life and destroy property, these so-called "Activists" have all the potential to match their Islamic brethren and have done so on numerous occasions.

These people have extreme Marxists agendas. Intimidation and violence are their methods. Their policies are selfish and marked by corruption, dishonesty, and immorality. There is nothing peaceful about these people.

How can these people be classified
as anything but Terrorists???

And there you have it. The leaders of the Animal Rights Movement in all their glory. These are dangerous people and organizations.
