When animal rights activists attack
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2009...

The charred remains of a car sitting outside the home of a UCLA neuroscientist last weekend is one more indicator that California has a domestic terrorism problem on its hands. The rationale for torching the neuroscientist's car in front of his home? He uses primates in his research. The culprits are fringe elements within California's animal rights movement who for nearly three years have taken their campaign to stop animal research from corporate and university laboratories and offices to the front doors of scientists across the University of California system.

Once upon a time, animal rights activists adhered to a policy of not harming any sentient being, humans included. But there's every indication that the path of non-violence has become a frustrating one in California. Two days after the car was ignited outside the neuroscientist's home, a message from the Animal Liberation Brigade appeared on the North American Animal Liberation press office's website:

On Friday night March sixth we burned a vehicle at the home of in Los Angeles. is a peice of human shit who addicts monkeys to methamphetamines and other street drugs at the University of California at Los Angeles. He associates with other pieces of human shit like who is addicting and experimenting on monkeys. The things you and others like you do to feeling sentient monkeys is so cruel and disgusting we can't believe anyone would be able to live with themselves.

, here's a message just for you, we will come for you when you least expect it and do a lot more damanage than to your property. Where ever you go and what ever you do we'll be watching you as long as you continue to do your disgusting experiments on monkeys.


No doubt some animal liberationists and their fellow travellers would argue this is free speech, but the warning also sounds ominously like a death threat.

1. Extremists piss me off
What if that car had exploded and killed an innocent person who wasn't a "peice (sic) of human shit"?

On a side note, why is there any need to give meth to primates, when there are so many freakin' ignorant human beings who will do this willingly?
