Humane Society Becoming More Like the Animal Liberation Front

By The Center for Consumer Freedom , Promoting Personal Responsibility -
October 30, 2009

Last night in Los Angeles, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)
president Wayne Pacelle showed why he’s been able to turn a group that
sounds as if it’s all about protecting puppies and kittens into an
animal-rights lobbying force with talons. He’s looking to sink those
talons into people who have the audacity to eat or sell meat, wear
leather, go to circuses, or enjoy hunting and fishing – in other words,
99 percent of America.

In front of a hand-picked crowd of HSUS supporters who attended last
night’s “town hall meeting” at the Ebell of Los Angeles, Pacelle rallied
the troops with a fight song:

"We have to create a clamor for change ... You can get further with a
kind word and a gun than a kind word alone."

He attributed the latter quote to notorious gangster Al Capone, who
seems like an odd inspiration for a supposedly peaceful movement. But
animal-rights extremists are far from peaceful. One of Pacelle’s own
staffers, Josh Balk, told the HSUS-sponsored “Taking Action For Animals”
that “there are very few instances that companies just refuse to move
with a friendly conversation … The animals can’t wait for people to come
to a revelation themselves. Sometimes it does take force.”

HSUS sounds more and more like PETA and the terrorist Animal Liberation
Front every day.

It’s been well documented that HSUS spends only a tiny fraction – less
than four percent – of its budget directly funding animal shelters. If
you’re wondering how it spends the other roughly $100 million in its
budget every year, you might consider the cost of renting out the posh
Wilshire Ebell Theatre, providing the supporters-only crowd with a
catered coffee service, and hiring four burly security guards to keep
out the riff-raff.

Sorry, Wayne. We got in anyway.
