If you’ve watched the show “Whale Wars,” then you’re familiar with a supposed charity that calls itself the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. While the Sea Shepherds hold themselves out to be some sort of whale protection outfit, the truth is much dingier. In 2013, a federal court declared Sea Shepherd to be a group of pirates, writing:
Most people have heard by now that SeaWorld is going to phase out its orca shows following years from pressure from PETA, the Humane Society of the United States, and other animal liberation activists (like Steve-O of “Jackass” fame, at right). A lot of people emailed us in disgust that SeaWorld would partner with HSUS. Having reflected on it, we have a few thoughts. You should never cave in to terrorism.

And agreeing to stop orca shows would not be enough. Public humiliation and self-flagellation are part of the price to get these people to go away.
