We could write books on this topic. Don’t need perfect sentences, verbiage or even spelling. Don’t need tons of intelligence, although it helps. We will try and spell it out clearly. If you don’t want to read, just go to the last paragraph for the Obama example.
The number one reason that all owners should NOT buy into the crap that animal rights extremists hand us? Is because essentially ARs misrepresent almost everything, AND they have a huge agenda behind it all. The agenda is marketed by using common propaganda techniques, TV, videos, and movies and books, classroom education in elementary school.
The average animal owner will NOT pay much attention and will ASSUME that is is animal welfare. IT IS NOT ANIMAL WELFARE. It is normally animal rights pretending to be animal welfare. We believe that animal welfare presumes that legally, animals are property under the law.
Animal rights does NOT believe animals are property at all. In fact they BELIEVE animals hold about the same position as people. This is of huge importance. Everything they do hinges on it.
That is why they (the ARs) do not want people to OWN, BUY, SELL, TRADE or even advertise. They don’t want anyone to “make” any $$ on selling an animal, or animal related product. The agenda is commonly known as the 12 Steps of Animals Rights done by Kim Bartlett whose husband Merritt Clifton, publishes Animal People.
The 12 Steps means no animals should be bred, the pet trade should be abolished, no selling, no buying, no breeding, no giving away, no hunting, no fishing, and any commercial use of any animals should die today. Hence, no leather, no dog food with animal products, no eggs, no steaks, no hamburgers, no chicken sandwiches, no KFC, no food with animal products, no medicine using animal products, no drugs using animal products. Stop fishing fleets, ranching, farming,hunting licenses [hunting would all be illegal], stop all zoos, animal exhibition, stop all aquariums and ability to buy a goldfish, any fish, any marine type anything, any reptile, any small mammal, birds [esp exotic ones], stop the circus (currently ARs trying to stop circus from showing animals who have traveled in past 15 days prior to show), stop rodeos, stop trained animals [eliminating trained animal in all entertainment, movies, etc] no competition of animals in shows (because its competition and your offspring might sell for more if you win),no profit can be made on any “sales” of any animals?? ARs call that “profiteering off the backs of animals.” Did you know that?
We admit this will not happen overnite. BUT what people don’t understand is when a bad AR law passes, it gives precedence to the animal rights law that passed. THAT is why ARs kept litigating the circus animal (elephants) case for over TEN friggin’ YEARS!!! AND the ARs had to CHEAT to even keep the case going for over 9 YEARS– then the ARs completely LOST the case on not 1, not 2, but 3 levels of Court. That ONE case cost over $20,000,000 to defend.
H$U$ and other AR groups will build another law using the former law as a basis—but they first must pass a law, or win a lawsuit. This will NEVER stop– so the only way for US to stop it, is to make people understand—bad laws give rise to worse bad laws and it goes on until we somehow manage to stop it. It is like CANCER and should be stopped at its inception wherever possible.
What is key, is to understand the foundation of animal rights belief means that animals are not property. Once laws start taking away our own rights as to our property, we have big problems.
Let’s pretend Congress passed a law that said no one can sell an animal because it’s animal abuse. BUT they said in the same law—that only NON PROFITS could sell animals. No one in the universe would agree with that law EXCEPT non profits.
Well that is exactly what California SB 917 law does. It exempts non profits from selling, it claims selling by others which are NOT non profits is “animal abuse”…….it thus exempts non profits from animal abuse. Can’t make it any more clear than that. ARs have criminalized selling into animal abuse. BUT NOT IF THEY DO IT. [See how to inform your Congress person about H$U$–read comment below in “comments” below the picture]
