“A life is a life. If the death of one rat cured all diseases, it wouldn’t make any difference to me. In the scheme of life, we’re equal.”
Chris DeRose, President
Last Chance for Animals
Los Angeles Times
April 12, 1990
Former Senator/VP Gore says we shouldn’t cut down a tree to save a life, and Mr. DeRose, in true anti-humanitarian spirit, says we shouldn’t kill a rat in order to save humans. Enough said!
“We have to…recognize that the Judeo-Christian religious tradition is our foe…(it) is fundamentally hostile to the idea of animal liberation.”
One of the few admissions on the part of the environmental movement is that it is anti-Christian. Why do I call animal huggers part of the environmental movement. They’re all left wing, liberal socialists at the top. The top being the leadership, not the grass root pet lover.
Keep looking and you’ll probably find more.
“Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughterhouses.”
Executive Director, PETA
in Washington Post article, 1983
Any human being whose unconscionable mind allows her to spew out this anti-Semitic venom should be banned from humanity, let alone influence others by being the executive director of anything.
By the way, she was an invited guest at the White House by President Clinton.
“Hunters are always there in support of trapping, because they figure if we get our foot in the door by banning trapping, hunting will be next. And they’re right.”

“Ten years from now, the animal rights movement could still be grappling with questions of dying human babies being saved…through animal experimentation. This argument must be rendered politically useless.”
in Animals’ Agenda
The idea of human beings being placed on a level equal to an animal, a rock or a tree is a concept I am not prepared to accept.
“At Friends of Animals, the sabotage of hunting is a national policy.”
Friends of Animals Action Line
Apparently taking the law into one’s own hands is OK if it’s for the right (perceived) reason. Others may call that person a terrorist. But in the eyes of these anti people, sabotage is O.K.
All people of the left believe the end justifies the means. That is why they are winning. They have the passion and are not swayed by facts, feelings are everything.
“We cannot end hunting, but we can put an end to some hunters….”
“Buy a rifle and hunting license and go into the woods during hunting season to bag a pot-bellied beer sucker.”

One of the reasons they are winning, (the socialist liberal left), is because you laugh at things like the quote above.
It’s time to stop laughing!
“Humans have grown like a cancer. We’re the biggest blight on the face of the earth.”
Executive Director, PETA
Readers Digest, June 1990
It’s either us or the animals in the mind of the insane.
“They are like slaves, even if well-kept slaves.”
“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.”
While the average animal rights activists have pets of their own, they would be shocked to discover that the true agenda of the animal rights movement is to eliminate domesticated animals.
During a TV interview, Hoyt held up a photograph of a dog and said, “In the future, this is the kind of pet people should have.” He meant the photograph, not the dog.

“Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation.”
Founder of PETA
The average pet owner probably wouldn’t believe this if old Ingrid stood in front of them and yelled it out. What she is saying is there should be no pets in the world only wild animals.
I’ll say it one more time, NO PETS OF ANY KIND!!!
“we don’t need animal research because “a lot of human subjects …who would be more than willing to become live experiments”

“Just how absurd are some animal-rights people about their cause? Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney is leading a campaign against the March of Dimes because it works with animals in research. But McCartney’s wife, Linda, is taking chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer that was developed through animal research, mostly on fruit flies, mice and rats.
Alex Pacheco, chairman of PETA, told The New York Times, ‘We feel that animals have the same rights as a retarded human child because they are equal mentally in terms of dependence on others.’ Pacheco added: ‘Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are ‘acceptable crimes’ when used for the animal cause.’
In testimony before a House Appropriations subcommittee on March 12, FBI Director Louis Freeh noted the extent of special-interest terrorist activity. He cited as one example a Feb. 2, 1992, arson of the mink research facility at Michigan State University. Rodney Coronado, a member of the Animal Liberation Front, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 57 months in prison. PETA sent $ 45,200 to Coronado’s ‘support committee,’ which was a sum 15 times greater than what PETA spent on animal shelters nationwide in all of that year.
The attack on the lab interfered with toxicology research designed, among other things, to help not only humans but to improve the quality of marine life in Lake Huron.
The Department of Justice says there have been more than 313 instances of animal-rights violence in the United States. This has led to a 10 percent to 20 percent increase in research costs, much of it funded by taxpayers.
While PETA and the other groups loudly condemn scientific research involving animals (90 percent of which are rodents, according to Americans for Medical Progress, a pro-research foundation), they spend a pittance on animal shelters. Eleven million animals are destroyed annually for lack of facilities. Yet PETA spent less than $ 3,955 of its $ 12 million in fiscal 1995 and $ 6,100 of its $ 10.9 million in fiscal 1996 for shelter programs, according to its nonprofit tax forms filed with the IRS. The Humane Society does not operate a single shelter, despite a $ 40 million budget.
Political scientist Kevin Beedy, writing in the March 1990 issue of Animals’ Agenda, said: ‘Terrorism carries no moral or ethical connotations. It is simply the definition of a particular type of coercion. … It is up to the animal-rights spokespersons either to dismiss the terrorist label as propaganda or make it a badge to be proud of wearing.”
