In another example, the person heading the same animal rights organization was so desperate that she took reckless actions which are noted by the Anti-Defamation League (the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations agency) on its website under the heading “Extremism in America: Eco-terrorism?” The Anti-Defamation League states that the woman and her organization speak on behalf of the actions of extreme and militant animal rights groups that the FBI considers serious terrorist threats.
It has also been reported that people in her organization acted as brokers to fund the freeing of six animal extremists from jail, each convicted of a campaign to terrorize the employees of a New Jersey based company and its shareholders. In fact, Governor Chris Christie, then US Attorney in charge of the case, stated “…The verdict reveals these individuals for what they really were: thugs who went far beyond protected speech and lawful protest to engage in and incite intimidation, harassment and violence.”
How negative is one’s self image that it would cause them to abandon critical thinking and aid convicted felons?
Perhaps the most poignant example of negativity exhibited by animal rights activists is found while observing everyday life: The angler, hunter, or conservationist rarely protest the animal rights activist for their values or preferences.
Conversely, the animal rights activist makes an industry of harassing and demonstrating against the angler, hunter, and conservationist. What depth of negativity causes people to overtly act with hostility and domination towards people with differing views?
A wise person wrote that if we want others to be happy we must practice compassion, and if we want to be happy we must practice compassion. If so, it makes good sense for us to practice compassion for animal rights activists.
