Join the Crusade Against HSUS+Pass It forward–>
Orig. posted April 2009—Only things are
even worse now!! could be changing!! 2013 may be year of some change………why?
1. HSUS has been outted by many other sources, re IRS issues, over-lobbying, bad seizures, working against all commercial and breeder selling, regardless
2. APHIS Federal challenge has HSUS scrambling to “intervene” but it was weak and Plaintiff Dog Clubs were shown to have standing and case is in litigation
3. AETA was upheld on appeal, ARs had NO standing
4. Agriculture, farmers are now gathered together such that they realize splintered and adverse choices weakens their framework, thus now 5 AGs are suing against Prop 2 in California, the HSUS “chicken” law which stands to threaten the rest of the ag groups (beef, pork, you name it, HSUS will never stop)
5. The U.S. Supreme Court has struck down 3 key cases that involve laws which HSUS implemented: first amendment violation for free speech (U.S. v Stevens), first amendment violation for free speech (violent video gaming case out of CA–found to be wildly overbroad at very least) and the preempted downer cow law (Federal law preempted HSUS state law CA as to pigs being killed because they would not move)
6. Federal Court Arizona, has issued injunction against law which outlaws the selling of dogs which are not from non profit source making it A CRIMINAL OFFENSE. Thus one pet store can still sell dogs which are NOT from non profit source.
7. U.S. Supreme Court used the Commerce Clause to find that the Obamacare mandate FORCING people to BUY healthcare was unconstitutional as it violated the commerce clause. The question of whether the government could MAKE people eat broccoli was used widely as an example? We believe that FORCING a businesss to only sell NON PROFIT sourced animals is pure hogwash.
The Agriculture/animal breeders/all animal related groups
need to be on one page, not 1,000 scattered pages! Not segmented, not segregated, not divisive. They all need to be unified in one giant effort. Agriculture, we believe, has seen the light in the past few years!! We have seen few groups attempt to do this because they are selfish and worry only about their specific, individual issues. HSUS is NOT about single issues, HSUS clobbers all issues involving the breeding,owning,buying,selling,showing,display,regulating,sales and anything else involving animals that can BE SOLD or NOT sold. If HSUS has its way, they will stop the selling/buying/breeding. Don’t be so naive to think they can’t do it. They simply will N.E.V.E.R STOP. Imagine Jihad and then picture HSUS. Same deal, same mentality. Stop at nothing. Nothing stops them except loss of $$ and more people against “them.”
We are also finding that HSUS appears to be handing off some of its lobbying to ASPCA but that could be subterfuge. We are sure it’s all still the same people, just changing a few names and getting even MORE people involved— but using a different “charity” name to do it.
BUT STILL PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD AGAINST HSU$ AND THE AR MENTALITY!!!
One of the fastest methods of marketing used to quickly gain other participants, which can be exponential in breadth and scope –is by using levels of people. Just pick out say 10-50 as an initial goal, and all you do is forward this article. That’s right. This is just to inform people of the truth. HURRY–BECAUSE HSUS IS NOW PUSHING ALMOST 200 ANTI-PET LAWS NATIONWIDE! The public needs to know their money isn’t going to help puppies, except to have them sold by HSUS linked groups, while they claim such dogs shouldn’t be SOLD!!
Many pet owners or fanciers, business owners or community people have tons of friends and others who would like to KNOW the truth. People who want to buy a dog. People who don’t know about HSUS.
Make sure to tell THEM to do the same thing with 10-50 emails. This is VITAL. Do not spam people. Either send to someone you know, or post it online somewhere (blog, forum, newspaper blog replies, Kijiji forum, wherever..) This is for education purposes. HSUS hires telemarketers. We don’t need to hire telemarketers because we already have enough people.
We have way more people than HSUS does. Especially if each person does what is stated above. If you know anything about math, (exponential power) you can see that we can get millions of postings and emails. And when millions of people know, they tell others. That is how Obama got a lot of people to vote. Email and posting online.
You know how rumors get started and end up as “urban legends?”
Well, make this one a non-urban legend aboutHSUS.
Bad news travels so fast online, it can take the place of 100 news broadcasts because so many people see it AT THE SAME TIME. HSUS is like Peta— but with the Political Push. And HSUS has far more $$$ than Peta, since it merged or swallowed up a bunch of other animal groups.
And it was done PURPOSELY–so they would have more corporate money and get into more political situations—which in many cases—create greedy scandals involving buying off politicians, as we have seen daily in 2008—the year of corporate greed going wild. Now in 2012, the economy is practically bankrupt and only the very rich are not having any issues.
Is this what we want? Animal extremists with huge corporate coffers to buy off politicians? To take donations from innocent people and then make laws against our animals? To stop the breeding of good pets? To ruin the agriculture and pet industry? Beware–because it is here–and that group is the corporate conglomerate known as HSUS+friends!
For 2008, HSUS pushed 10 goals…6-7 of the 10 goals involved spay/neuter, dogs/cat laws, or farm animal laws. One other goal was to increase media exposure and another to involve Venture Capital (to make more $$$)…only ONE goal involved outside issue (seal hunting, Canada) Much of the laws HSUS pushes is against dog kennel owners of all types, dog owners, and dog breeders, regardless of size or type. HSUS loves to pretend that every dog breeder is a high volume business, yet HSUS pushes for laws against even small hobby breeders. In other words, HSUS says one thing, but does another.
Not convinced about HSUS misleading the public? http://www.v-abs.com/HSUS.htm and http://www.humanewatch.org [ Make sure to see below, which tell about HSUS’ involvement in different lawsuits.] What kind of group besides PETA— wants to hire convicted felons? HSUS. Yet, HSUS contributed $$ toward the proposed law against radical extremists targeting scientists and their families in CA. Why? Because HSUS is attempting to make it look like they don’t condone violence, yet HSUS does fundraisers for convicted eco-terrorists, one of which was on 12/13/08.
In 2005 Pacelle announced the formation of a new “Animal Protection Litigation Section” within HSUS, dedicated to “the process of researching, preparing, and prosecuting animal protection lawsuits in state and federal court.”
[Note: What this really means is HSUS becomes involved in LEGISLATION aimed at stopping the selling of pets, notably dogs; HSUS puts videos on mainstream TV and then tells the public to donate, while saying HSUS is busting dog kennels–but behind the scenes, they are advising cities to implement sterilization of all pets, no buying, no breeding of animals, and forced adoption of shelter animals, not buying from stores; HSUS attempts to help pass laws pushing MSN, forfeiture of dogs, and restrictions of pets including no tethering, etc]

This list may not be completely updated, but was at time of initial printing by consumerfreedom.com–however after the huge merger of many more extremist groups with HSUS, they now own millions of acres of land, and probably can BUY whatever POLITICIAN they can pay………..so we all know how corporate GREED has ruined this country? Do we want to encourage MORE of the same thing with our animals???!!
HSUS submitted to the Denver Fed Appellate Court (2008) an amicus brief claiming that dog breeds can be identified with 99% accuracy without bothering to explain such “accuracy” is only considered to be for entertainment purposes, not scientifically used as a reliable test at this stage (for breed)– due to the testing being in infancy stage. HSUS also submitted an amicus brief on the R. Stevens case, and Stevens was found not guilty in a precedential case on free speech issues (2008.)
HSUS is going around the country offering $5,000 for info leading to conviction of “dogfighters” and has purposely helped/ engaged in orchestrated raids of large and medium kennels of dogs, killing ALL the dogs upon seizure, even when the court verdicts led to acquittal of the owners. HSUS has bragged about taking down dog people and made a big deal of it, yet after 3-4 years, the accused are aquitted quickly but their dogs were killed right after the raids. This is becoming a pattern for the HSUS, which is NOT a legal enforcement team. Thought HSUS was about “saving” animals? Think again.
HSUS solicited donations for the Vick dogs when they did not HAVE custody of such dogs–but implied that they did!! In fact HSUS wrote letters advocating the dogs should be killed. Soliciting donations for dogs one doesn’t have amounts to fabrication. Lying.
HSUS purposely engages itself with local humane society groups so that HSUS can be involved in KENNEL RAIDS of small dogs, with the intent being that all such dogs will be seized and taken. HSUS often uses Best Friends, ASPCA, Last Chance for Animals and the like, to help out. No charges of abuse or gross neglect need be filed, in fact in one case, it was set up to seize the animals by saying there was an “environmental” violation of putting dog urine in the river. HSUS then broadcasts such RAIDS across the United States, and then helps groups sell the dogs the week following the RAID.
HSUS purposely has “merged” with other large AR groups (Doris Day, etc) so they can take over the advocacy of AR issues in all areas (legislate, advocate,lawsuits) and WP admitted, they intend to push hard in several areas, including legislation and gaining donations. Just looking at the huge list of corporations owned by HSUS above, do you not see the potential for harm? Do we need to become victims first like in the mortgage business? Do we need to lose our rights before fighting this cancer?
This is just one spoke in a large wheel of many people who don’t like liars trying to force their methods down our throats……………Make sure to see Gerry Spence’s take on corporations (like HSUS) that use propaganda to dumbdown the public on TV; see http://tinyurl.com/7dkh52 or http://www.gerryspence.wordpress.com
Note: You can shorten this to whatever amount you think is sufficient, you can add to it, and subtract. Just make sure when you send it out, you tell the other people to share it with 10-50 others. (You can also make a PDF, but many people are lazy and won’t open it.)
Please forward to others who will do the same! The truth about PETA has been out for awhile, but HSUS credibilty needs to be hit with the sledgehammer. And it’s now Hammertime! AB1634 was defeated in CA with massive numbers of opposition. We need to do the same, only MORE–against HSUS. Our work lies before us. Now we just need to do it!
