Wayne Pacelle Blinks

Pitbull Puppy Slaughter Campaign puts HSUS on the defensive Did Wayne blink ? Or wince ? Whole lotta butt covering going on at HSUS Turns out the Humane Society of the United States can't throw its weight behind the slaughter of defenseless, un-weaned puppies without hearing from its own constituency. The furor over HSUS's merciless extermination plan for the Wildside Kennels dogs caught some very tender parts of Dogfight Czar John Goodwin--and his boss Wayne Pacelle--in a vise. And then, guess what happened ? Its magic! HSUS's new policy: evaluate dogs before they're killed! Amazing! Five days after the day Wilkes County, NC, bowed to HSUS pressure and killed every single dog seized from Wildside Kennels -- including 60 or more puppies (some born after the seize) -- and 4.99 days after HSUS's shit hit the fan, Wayne Pacelle announces . . .

"an interim policy recommending all dogs be evaluated as individuals. . .[HSUS] is calling a meeting of leading animal welfare organizations concerning dogs victimized by dog fighting."

Wayne was going to do the right thing. Of course he was! Wayne was setting up a conference and everything!

Nevermind what Dogfight Czar Goodwin said : "the dogs have been bred for fighting and it would very difficult and expensive to re-train the dogs, even the puppies. . ."

Nevermind what HSUS's North Carolina Regional Representative, Amanda Arrington, said : "these particular dogs have been bred for aggression." The proper audience response is. . .

Shock and awe

So get with the program. And assume the position.

The magic wand has been waved. Pixie dust is in the air.

Or maybe not.

Will Pit Bull owners and advocates buy into the reformation of HSUS?

I don't know about you, but I'm not about to forget the thousands of helpless dogs that died, and still die each year, because HSUS says they must.

Every shelter dog deserves a fair evaluation. Yes, Biscuit is right.

Does HSUS think their "experts" are up to the task? Cause HSUS brought in an "expert" to look at Pat Patrick's dogs, and we all know how that went.

Kick HSUS the hell out

The Humane Society of the United States needs to get out of the pit bull "rescue" biz.

They have no credibility. They are not "stakeholders" and have no place among the "national stakeholder organizations that deal with pit bulls" that Pacelle says he invited to his little conference. History cannot be rewritten.

Core values won't go away after a kissy-kissy weekend in Vegas.

Wayne Pacelle wants my dog dead.

He wants your dog dead.

Pacelle hired a convicted ALF terrorist, and made the freak his "issues expert" on dogfighting.

He's offering a $5000 bounty for report-a-neighbor "dogfighting" tips.

It doesn't get more irresponsible, more hate-driven, more pathological than that.

Tell ya what, Wayne

Invite Floyd Boudreaux to speak at your little conference. Floyd would likely be the only one in the room with any true expertise on the evaluation, care and handling of high drive, real deal "pit bulls."

Acknowledge the AADR, or the ADBA, or crap, even the UKC, as a "national pit bull stakeholder." Invite them to your Vegas shindig.

Maybe then folks might, just might, believe you aren't still shitting them.

HSUS Kills Puppies

HSUS Kills Puppies
Die, die, die says Dogfight Czar John Goodwin

Newborn puppies are too dangerous to live

127 dogs, including 60 puppies, were killed by Wilkes County, North Carolina this week after their owner plead guilty to dogfighting charges.

His dogs, including 60 puppies -- including newborns like this one -- are all dead.

Newborn puppies are too expensive to save
The world's largest, wealthiest "animal protection" organization -- one with over $113 million in assets and a reported income of over $100 million -- stood by while dogs are slaughtered. HSUS advocated it, in fact.


Goodwin sez. . .

"it would very difficult and expensive to re-train the dogs, even the puppies. . ."

Blogosphere's on fire

This is going to leave a mark, Pacelle.

Some of my favorites--

Caveat has an excellent summary-- Time to Take the "Humane" out of HSUS

Lassie, Get Help: Worse than Vick Yes, indeed.

Yes, Biscuit's got HSUS cold: Pants on Fire

Even HSUS's usual apologists aren't happy. Wayne's trying to change the subject, but the stink of HSUS's role in slaughtering innocent dogs is everywhere.

Racism and intolerance at Westminster: PETA puts on KKK robes

Racism and intolerance at Westminster PETA puts on KKK robes Who's under the sheet and pointy hat? Ingrid Newkirk Those zany kids at PETA planned to embarrass exhibitors and spectators at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show by dressing up in KKK robes. The crowds are supposed to appreciate a provocative, gratuitous comparison between the American Kennel Club and the Ku Klux Klan. But PETA blundered. Ingrid exposed her own intolerant, racist and violent agenda. PETA, the animal rights extremist organization that operates a death camp for pet animals, characterizes certain dog owners as "pimps and drug dealers" and heartily congratulated Lancaster, California, on its racially-motivated anti-gang law, is no champion of pet ownership. Does that robe and hood fit, Ingrid? Then wear it. Bring me your tired, your poor Residents of New York City -- one of the most racially and ethnically diverse cities in the country -- will likely take one look at those robes and hoods and draw their own conclusions. New Yorkers are gonna have a problem with the repugnant sight of white supremacists on the streets of Manhattan. A city that routinely elects gay, Catholic, Jewish, ethnic minority and/or non-white public servants isn't going to be cool with the Klan in Midtown Manhattan. NAACP has a problem with PETA So does the Southern Poverty Law Center. And the Jewish community. PETA's exploitation of racial tragedies and human suffering has a long, sordid history. Back in 2005, PETA encountered intense criticism to their depictions of black people in chains.
“PETA operates by getting publicity any way they can,” said John White, an NAACP spokesman. “They're comparing chickens to black people?” Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project with the Southern Poverty Law Center, in Montgomery, Ala., called the exhibit “disgusting.” “Black people in America have had quite enough of being compared to animals without PETA joining in,” he said. PETA officials apologized earlier this year for a campaign that compared the suffering of Jews during the Holocaust with that of factory animals.
Nothing funny about the Klu Klux Klan PETA's own support groups have problems with this latest animal extremist assault. The Superbowl masturbation-with-food video was bad enough, but even
Eccentric Vegan displayed more common sense, and more sensitivity, when it came to use of Klan imagery.
"This is not “unfortunate moments in human history” as some anti-PETA spokepeople call the KKK, this is real life, current racism, hate, murder. No one should dress as a Klansman, not even as part of a protest. It’s too confusing, it’s too provocative, it’s too racist. It’s not funny, it’s not safe, it’s not OK."
What would Al Sharpton say ? I have to wonder what New York's Rev. Al Sharpton would have to say at this point. PETA successfully recruited Sharpton, who made a video urging black people to boycott Kentucky Fried Chicken. . .even though Sharpton has no problem with eating fried chicken at all. Is Rev. Sharpton happy to see hoods and robes on 7th Avenue? I'm just saying. . . What would President Obama say ?

How about our president, whose intricate and thoughtful "race speech" included . . .

". . .for all those who scratched and clawed their way to get a piece of the American Dream, there were many who didn't make it - those who were ultimately defeated, in one way or another, by discrimination. . . .For the men and women of Reverend Wright's generation, the memories of humiliation and doubt and fear have not gone away; nor has the anger and the bitterness of those years."

What would President Obama say about animal extremist whackjobs, dressed as Klu Klux Klan members, wandering the streets of New York?

I'm thinking President Obama will have a problem with it, too.

Write President Obama a letter.

The sooner, the better.

There are lots of good reasons to despise PETA's hate-filled Ku Klux Klan campaign. Really, a lot of them. Keep in mind that PETA serves as the advance guard, the shock troops, in the extremist war against pet owners. These pathetic people draped in sheets are expendable. They're cannon fodder. PETA only wants to get the [your choice: racist/intolerant/bigoted/animal rights] ball rolling. Plant the seed. Start the conversation. This won't end with Westminster. So write Barack a letter. Ask him what he thinks of a group that puts on KKK robes and tries to draw a parallel between a dog show and a racist secret society that brought violence, death and destruction to untold numbers of people in the past. . .and continues to do so today. Cause I don't think President Obama will like it. Not at all.

Profiling dog lovers in Lancaster, California

Profiling dog lovers in Lancaster PETA's Ingrid Newkirk does her happy dance California's SB 861 slices off human testicles, too Mayor Parris wants certain dogs, and certain dog owners, gone by sundown. Basing himself on HSUS's "pit bulls are the preferred dog of gang-bangers, drug dealers. . ." fake factoid, Parris and the City of Lancaster are proud of their new breed specific mandatory spay neuter ordinance. They see it as an anti-gang tool. Dog law? Or covert racism? Sucking up to his audience's worst fears, Parris says he has no problem with calculated harassment of certain residents and welcomed the ordinance, which is based on extreme negative stereotypes of both dogs and owners. Critics fear the Lancaster ordinance will lead to profiling of young black and Latino men seen with "pit bulls" or Rottweilers as gang-bangers. Parris wasn't concerned: "I have no desire to help [gang-bangers]. The only thing I want to do is crush them and remove them from the community." Kindly, gently annihilating dogs California's infamous SB 861, supported and co-authored by members of the "humane" movement, opened the door for local ordinances like Lancaster's. Breed specific mandatory surgical removal of reproductive organs is spreading in California. Now Rottweilers and Rottweilers owners have been caught in the crossfire. Love does not discriminate, except in the Golden State where the "humane" movement helped dismantle the protections state law once offered by prohibiting breed profiling. Bad Rap's Excellent Adventure in Legislation The slickest pit bull "rescue" in the country helped write SB 861 -- rationalizing what they did as "re-tooling the preamble of the bill to outline the intent of the bill and to remove the 'dangerous and vicious' language that was going to flatten all of us." As Bad Rap tap dances as best they can, they claim they "officially" opposed SB 861. But how can you collaborate on a proposal and oppose it as the same time? Bad Rap hasn't had a whole lot to say about the Lancaster ordinance, but PETA and Ingrid Newkirk are thrilled. Of course, Ingrid would happily kill every dog Bad Rap wants to find a home for. R. Rex Parris' hate campaign for the eradicatation of pit bulls gang-bangers Bad Rap thinks they removed the language that was going to "flatten" us. Apparently not. It looks like everyone didn't get that memo. Successful lawyer and newbie Mayor R. Rex Parris of Lancaster, California campaigned on a law-and-order, gang-eradication platform. And he sure loves to shoot off his mouth: "I want gangs out of Lancaster," Mayor R. Rex Parris said in a recent interview. "I want to make it uncomfortable for them to be here. Anything they like, I want to take it away from them. I want to deliberately harass them.... "It's really like [gangs] having a weapon that they are allowed to display and intimidate people," Parris said. "If they have a pit bull, they may as well put a sign on their head saying, 'Come get me.' " Then there was:

“I want to deliberately harass the gangs. We will take their dogs; we will take their cars,”

Making it easy for Mayor Parris Think I'm coming down too hard on old Bad Rap? Did I singled them out unfairly? Self-inflicted wounds hurt the most, but let's run the list of the other "humane" organizations and supporters of SB 861. Bad Rap wasn't the only adventurer that took part in the SB 861 feeding-frenzy. Who else helped enable Mayor R. Rex Parris' fear-driven eradication campaign? Step out from the shadows and hang your heads in shame. . . . City and County of San Francisco Counties of Los Angeles, Napa, Tehama Cities of Apple Valley, Concord, Fremont, San Jose, Santa Rosa, West Hollywood Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue Action for Animals Animal Defense League Animal Issues Movement Animal Legislation Action Network Animal Place Animal Switchboard Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights California Animal Control Directors Association California Association of Nurse Anesthetists California Lobby for Animal Welfare Contra Costa Humane Society Doris Day Animal League Friends of Long Beach Animals League of California Cities Peninsula Humane Society PETA United Activists for Animal Rights United Animal Nations Lessons learned? Mayor Parris is busy keeping his hate campaign alive. He doesn't have time to thank those that paved the way for him. I just hope that the members of some of these groups are beginning to understand the terrible repercussions of bad legislation. Innocent dog owners, and innocent dogs, are being hurt by SB 861. Good dogs are dying. There's no such thing as "just a little discrimination." Discrimination cannot be "retooled" into anything more acceptable. Love Does Not Discriminate Pit bull owners know it. Rottweiler owners know it. I believe most dog owners know it. Never, never let public servants -- or humane organizations -- in your community get away with it. _____________________________ Couple of other things: Noted with pleasure: Dogs White People Like Department of "forgot to mention before": Handy dandy contact information for Lancaster, CA
