UPDATE 9/28/18: Info on Christine Blasey Ford’s credibility (see at bottom of article).
UPDATE 10/1/18: I was mistaken about which Supreme Court Justice had recently retired and is being replaced, whether it was Scalia or Kennedy. It’s retired Kennedy being replaced now of course; Scalia died in 2016. Text has been revised.
Most animal activists love to attach themselves to the liberal side of politics, believing that side is pro-animal, opposed to the meat industry, opposed to animal testing, the fur industry, and all the other horrors happily accepted by the media-taught masses as normal and needed. One who purportedly loves/respects animals might wonder why a population largely trained by the mass media accepts all those horrors, but that makes one’s brain go all dizzy, so one avoids such thoughts.
The liberal media talks a good game when it comes to animal “welfare”; most liberal politicians do too. But that’s talk. Look at what they DO.
Most any “news” hour will be sure to have a segment celebrating everyone’s love for big fat juicy burgers, or whatever happens to be the meat dish or restaurant of the day. Free advertising is rampant in these “news” sideshows. Deep-fried pigs’ feet and such at county fairs are another favorite…let’s everybody indulge and grin from ear to ear!
These are, of course, the same “news” outlets that “objectively” rage against everything Trump, no matter the good he is doing for the country outside of his often crass remarks.
Every time some animal testing lab concocts what they call a “promising breakthrough,” that same liberal media can’t wait to breathlessly tell us all about it, regardless of any scientific validity and with no mention of what the animals endured for the latest fundraiser to benefit the sadists in lab coats. Nothing loosens up people’s purse strings more than stories of cures “around the corner thanks to animal sacrifice.” And the liberal media, great friend of animal activists, gleefully shouts those headlines with abandon. While animal-rights supporters evidently turn a blind eye and a deaf ear.
It would seem that despicable GREED is behind what the media does, but NO, greed is a right-wing Republican thing, ain’t it?
I regularly get replies from my liberal representatives regarding specific issues, say animal testing for one. Full of vagueness, sounding supportive of my “concerns,” but the bottom line is always: This industry is here to stay, it’s necessary, but I will always fight to ensure that the animals are treated humanely. Same goes for animal slaughter, et al. Humane life in a cage being used as experimental fodder; humane life in a cage being grown as food and ending up murdered by knife attack. The humaneness of it all makes me want to vomit.
Our mass media gladly endorse these monstrous deceptions, and their power in influencing public opinion is massive. So, why would they continually use that power to help industries that torture and kill animals, while talking all pretty about how they love animals?
We can clearly see the media’s full-blown liberal activism and power to influence people’s minds with the Brett Kavanaugh case of late. He is of course President Trump’s pick to replace retired Judge Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court. All the progressive minions have Kavanaugh cast in stone as a vicious gang rapist based on some liberal activist woman’s (Christine Blasey Ford’s) dredged up memory of a “party” of her, her best friend (who doesn’t remember the event) and 4 boys from 36 years ago, about her being manhandled (not raped) by Kavanaugh when he was seventeen.
Since the woman’s recollections are apparently so full of holes and since she was balking at testifying under oath, we see the backup plans in motion: Two or more “survivors” of the monster that is Kavanaugh have come out of the woodwork to keep him off the Supreme Court. The plan obviously is to keep this circus going till November when the liberals think they can win Congress and keep Kavanaugh out. They want a liberal activist judge to replace Kennedy, not a conservative constitutionalist like Kavanaugh. And they’re fighting lowdown and filthy to get their way. This all seriously stinks, regardless of what anyone thinks about Kavanaugh.
A whole lot of people, including liberal ARAs and vegans, are swallowing this load of chicanery, hook, line and sinker.
But imagine if the media dealt in TRUTH regarding the animal-using/killing industries and employed their influence in that realm. Imagine how much faster veganism would grow, along with all the rest of the needed changes. But no, the media does not do that. They do the opposite.
The liberal media regularly does cutesy animal adoption stories and the newscasters all rejoice in their love for “pets.” They’ll occasionally briefly cover a case of animal abuse and look glumly at the camera. “We’re with you, we feel your pain, our hearts break too,” their eyes say, for an instant. Then after the next commercial break the same heads will blare an “amusing” free advertisement for bacon-egg-cheese-burgers, implying that they, too, in all their obsessive thinness, indulge in the occasional big fat burger too. Don’t we all? Yum yum! Tee hee. And mind you, all those meat commercials you see/hear have absolutely nothing to do with it!
The same polished heads will then later chirp with beaming faces about the latest breakthrough in weight loss or some other continual bane of us all. Look at the big fat sluggish mouse in the before pic. Then after the breakthrough treatment…voila!…thin, active mouse! Will these miracles never cease? People eat it all up like the gullible twits the media counts on us to be. It’s like magic, they think…take a pill and look like the latest trending hotsie-totsie guy or gal! Are you ready for bikini season? You’d better be.
Plus, over here, this rat covered in tumors has been cured! Here comes the cure for cancer, but only if we get needed funding. (Translation: Cure Daddy sporting the lab coat needs another summer home.)
Say the public: Those researchers are absolutely awesome! Thank goodness we have animals to test our stuff on! Ima donate to all those kids with cancer now…those researchers say the cure is around the corner. Naysayers claim they’ve been saying that for several decades, but it’s only because they haven’t got enough money yet that the cure’s not here. Anywho, look at all the advances we’ve made, what they are I don’t exactly know, but I hear we got ‘em! Let’s all donate to animal research and be happy our taxes are funding it. What could be more warmhearted and caring? Anyone opposing animal testing is an anti-human MONSTER! Let’s experiment on THEM!
Same goes for vaccines, needless to say, and vaccines are undoubtedly a product of animal experiments and make use of all sorts of animal products. But many now recognize vaccines as yet another highly effective form of guaranteeing future profits for the industry, and they get viciously attacked in return. Take over the role of disease prevention by shooting toxic cocktails into the masses and messing around with those immune systems and, lo and behold, people become medically dependent for life! The media REALLY love touting vaccines as “news” (i.e. more free advertising, this time for their other high-paying advertisers—pharmaceutical companies).
And the animal activist’s great friend, the rabidly liberal mass media, gladly serve as the great, prolific circus barker for it all.
And our other great friends, progressive/liberal/socialist politicians, continue to grease the skids for themselves while telling us how much they feel our, and the animals’, pain. No matter their animal-friendly votes and such, it seems that things don’t actually change for good based on those votes and new laws. Things only really change for the better and permanently when people change en masse, when laws aren’t even needed for people to behave decently. Without that fundamental change in people, with new laws there’s always the backsliding when the opposition, such as puppy mills, barge up and demand their “rights” to torture and exploit animals. They scoff at the word “torture”; after all, one cannot torture a thing. Soul-dead René Descartes taught us ages ago that animals feel nothing.
So, without enough of the populace firmly on our side, we cannot get sufficient firm, lasting changes for animals. So puppy mills, slaughterhouses, vivisection labs, fur farms, et al, continue on, profiting all the way, under the liberal media’s self-interested, coddling watch. It would seem that the media heads know all this fully well. And still they do what they do, continually assisting the other side in keeping the populace far away from honest, effective animal advocacy and progress. When the smoke is cleared away, we can see clearly how they actually foment hatred in the populace against true animal advocates.
I’ll take the increased honesty and freedom-loving of the right, Republican wing. At least I know where I stand with the opposition on that side; and their people who are working for animals, including Matthew Scully and Lara Trump, and all the conservative animal activists I’ve known over the years let me know I’m not alone in being conservative and entirely opposed to all abuse and exploitive killing of animals.
CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD is an animal “researcher,” a VIVISECTOR, one who enjoys abusing captive animals for career/financial gain. Any animal activists still find her credible, honest, delicate, and a victim of Brett Kavanaugh?
She is co-author on six animal studies from 2006 to 2012, one using mice, six using rats. Read them here:
In case anyone doubts that she participated in the abuse as a “co-author”:
All authors must have participated in efforts to such an extent that they can take public responsibility for relevant portions of the content. One or more authors should take responsibility for the integrity of the work, from planning to publication. Only those who meet all of the following three criteria should be co-author of an article:
1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data;
2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and
3) final approval of the version to be published.
Authors should meet conditions 1, 2, and 3.
