U. S. Declares War on Animal Rights' Advocates and Environmentalists

The political and media elite, stooging and pimping as usual for the capitalists, continue to cash in on 9-1-1. Not only have they used the attacks on the Word Trade Center and the Pentagon to line their pockets with untold billions of taxpayers' dollars and money borrowed from abroad (the U. S. Treasury is technically broke) and as a pretext to exterminate Afghans, Iraqis, and Palestinians, but they have now set their sights upon destroying not only civil liberties but free expression at home as well. At the top of their hit list are animal rights' advocates and environmentalists. That is precisely what John Lewis of the FBI told the U. S. Senate's Environment and Public Works Committee, chaired by Republican James Inhofe of Oklahoma, on May 18th.

Of particular interest to the FBI and Homeland Security are the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), the Earth Liberation Front (ALF), and Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), all of whose dedicated members risk their lives on a daily basis in order to rescue tortured and abused animals from vivisectors and to save the planet from greedy, unscrupulous capitalists and consumers alike. The Feds' attempt to suppress all opposition to their thievery, genocide, and corruption is not limited to these groups but, according to the World Socialists' web site (www. wsws.org), also extends to Greenpeace, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the Quakers' American Friends Service Committee, Native American groups, and the homeless advocacy group, Food Not Bombs. David Martosko of the anti-animal rights, anti-environmental, anti-public health Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) beseeched the Inhofe Committee to also investigate and revoke the tax-exempt status of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the Fund for Animals, In Defense of Animals, and the New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance -- all of which he accused of providing financial support for the ALF, ELF, and SHAC. Of course, being the twenty-four karat hypocrite that he is Martosko does not see anything wrong with the CCF taking money from every scumbag animal abuser (factory farmers, restaurants, vivisectors, etc.), environment destroyer, and junk food and cheap booze purveyor on the planet.

The quick transformation of the war against al-Qaeda to an all-out attack upon animal rights' advocates and environmentalists is not surprising in that it was a scant twenty years ago that James Watt fired the opening potshot while hiding behind Christian doomsday prophecy. Moreover, the United States' war on Islam has always been a sham from the get-go. If America would stop propping up Arab dictators in order to plunder their countries' oil reserves and simultaneously scale back its carte blanche support for Israel, Islamic terrorism would lose most of its raison d'etre. Of course, Americans would have to find some other mode of transportation other than the automobile but the oil is going to run out sooner or later no matter what. The war on terrorism serves only to enrich its protagonists, to kill the animals, destroy the environment, and to deliver a coup de grace to freedom in the United States.

In singling out animal rights' advocates and environmentalists as terrorists, the Federal Government is conspicuously silent on such well-known hate groups as the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), neo-Nazis, and anti-government militias. The Cubans, Jews, Irish, and the Catholic Church also receive a free pass.

Bush the First pardoned world-renown terrorist Orlando Bosch in 1990 and he has been living high-on-the-hog in Miami ever since. His partner in the 1976 bombing of Cuban airliner which claimed seventy-three lives, former CIA operator Luis Posada Carriles, slipped into the country back in March and was not jailed until recently when international outcry forced Bush the Second's hand. Posada, who has been linked, inter alia, to the assassination of President Kennedy, the car-bomb murders of Pinochet opponent Orlando Letelier and American Ronni Moffitt on September 21, 1976 in Washington, the bombing of several Cuban hotels, an assassination attempt in 2000 on Fidel Castro in Panama, and Operation Condor, will most likely either be released or provided with sanctuary in a U. S.-friendly country. Sleazy cutthroats like Bosch, Posada, the Bushes, and the CIA stick together like congealed feces and smell just as bad.

In addition to their crimes of genocide and wholesale thievery directed against the Palestinians, the Jews have been openly committing thousands of acts of terrorism in the United States since the late 1960s. In 1985, the Jewish Defense League (JDL) bombed the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee's Santa Ana, California office and in doing so murdered the group's regional director, Alex Odeh. The perpetrators then fled to Israel in order to escape prosecution. In 2002, JDL members Irv Rubin and Earl Krugel were arrested while preparing to bomb a Los Angeles mosque and the southern California offices of U. S. Congressman Darrell Issa (a Lebanese-American who was the architect behind the movement to recall Gray Davis). From the late 1960s into the 1990s the JDL bombed and harassed Russian diplomats and business people living and working in New York City on a daily basis. Among their victims were: Aeroflot's offices on Forty-Fifth Street and Fifth Avenue, a Russian bookstore at Twentieth Street and Fifth Avenue, the Russian Mission to the United Nations on East Sixty-Seventh Street, and the diplomats' housing compound in Riverdale in the Bronx. They also used to attack Jews for Jesus with stun guns outside the Forty-Second Street Library. The Russian visitors' persistent pleas for police protection were ignored by the bigoted and corrupt administration of Ed Koch which turned a blind eye to the criminality of its fellow tribesmen. More recently, unidentified Jews have threatened to firebomb Presbyterian churches during services if that denomination goes ahead with plans to divest from companies doing business in Israel.

To this litany of crimes can also be added the politically-motivated Jewish sex scandals (Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, Gary Condit and Chandra Levy, and James McGreevey and Golan Cipel), spying on the United States (two cases involving "Scoop" Jackson's office in the 1970s and the 1980s, the Jonathan Pollard affair and, now, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)-Pentagon scandal), and Israeli nuclear proliferation (South Africa and possibly other states). Then there is the case of the Jewish immigrants from Russia who come to this country to gobble up scarce public housing and to wallow in welfare (while American citizens are forced to sleep in the street and go penniless) as well as to commit all sorts of crimes. Jews also employ terrorist-like tactics to silence and drive from office critics such as Representatives Earl Hilliard of Alabama and Cynthia McKinney of Georgia.

As far as the Irish are concerned, both Sein Fein and Ian Paisley's supporters are allowed not only to enter the country but to raise funds in order to finance their terrorist activities. When Islamic-Americans do the same thing they are jailed and their bank accounts seized. Likewise, the Catholic Church behaves like a terrorist organization in that its rhetoric promotes gay bashing, the harassment of women frequenting abortion clinics, and the murder of abortionists.

In conclusion, as far as the United States Government is concerned there are clearly good domestic terrorists and bad domestic terrorists. A good terrorist is defined as anyone or any group which works to promote the agenda of the powers that be, while a bad terrorist is anyone or any group which has the temerity to oppose the powers that be. In-groups and out-groups, winners and losers, it is as simple and as hypocritical as that. Meanwhile, the real terrorists in this country are the capitalists, the Jews, and the Christian Right who hide behind the mantle of fighting terrorism in order to steal, murder, pollute, and subjugate the entire earth and all of its inhabitants with impunity. The defining characteristic of this die Achse des Bosen is its members' total unwillingness to ever tell the truth about anything.
