When it comes to asserting the rights of animals, the end truly justifies the means for the animal rights lobby, and their minions in Congress and state legislatures across the country. This phenomenon has been on stark display in the United States House of Representatives and in the California Senate over the last 30 days:
Some of My Best Friends are Hunters
On April 17th, the U.S. House passed the most significant piece of pro-sportsmen legislation in 15 years, as HR 4089 was approved 274-189. Although the vote included 39 Democrats, a group of their left-leaning colleagues led the charge to gut the bill through a series of amendments. The most disgusting part of this maneuver was to see several of them profess their love and admiration for hunting and fishing prior to proposing amendments that would neuter the very hunting, fishing and shooting protections that HR 4089 provides.
In one of the latest fundraising pleas from the world’s most powerful animal rights group, the Humane Society of the United States intentionally misleads readers about legislation moving through Congress that protects the rights of American hunters, anglers and recreational shooters:
Last week I wrote the inaugural post for the Protect What’s Right blog. It shed light on the lie that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) spreads each and every day to the public, media and elected officials that they are not really against all hunting…just the really bad kinds of hunting.
We exposed the lie by examining the organization’s actions in recent years. And then followed up by reading the words that have been written and uttered by the leaders of HSUS regarding hunting. It’s a fact. They oppose all hunting.
The main force behind the effort to ban the hunting of California’s black bears and bobcats with hounds is the world’s largest anti-hunting group – a group that won’t be satisfied unless all hunting is illegal. Of course I know that claim sounds like a lot of hyperbole. And it’s expected that the opposition to a bill like this would make this argument. But it is also the truth. And I can prove it.
