Killing as “Conservation” and Other Obscene Hypocrisies

01 May

Wolf Tracks

Definition of HYPOCRISY (from Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

1: a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not; especially : the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion
Gee, of whom does the above definition describe?
While again reading the story about the wealthy Wisconsin trophy killer that paid hundreds to thousands of dollars to fly to Africa and kill a HIGHLY ENDANGERED black rhino, I came across a quote that made my blood boil:
But an organization named Conservation Force, which has spent about four years helping Reinke get his permit so he could bring home the trophy, argues the decision will be a precedent-setting boost for efforts to protect endangered species.

“Mostly it’s significant for rhino conservation,” said John Jackson of Conservation Force. “It will help support anti-poaching efforts.”

Jackson said Conservation Force is a nonprofit, charitable organization that is “using hunting as a tool to conserve species.” And the group’s website describes itself as “a force for wildlife conservation, wild places and our way of life.”

Really? Protect endangered species by killing them. Sure. Just like NAMBLA (Google it) is all about “mentoring” and providing “guidance” to the little boys that they molest. Give me a freaking break.

But sadly this isn’t the only form of hypocrisy from wildlife exploiters and killers. In Michigan the voices of 250,000 plus signers of a petition to stop their upcoming wolf killing season are about to have their voices silenced by the anti-wolf legislature in their state. From this article:

Supporters of Casperson’s bills, however, say the move protects Michigan citizens’ hunting rights by not allowing outside groups from coming into the state and pushing their own agenda through referendums. They point out that the Keep Michigan Wolves Protected petition drive was backed by a national animal rights group, the Humane Society of the United States.

So the killers and exploiters of wildlife in Michigan and other states don’t have “outside groups” pushing their own agendas? Really? I guess they missed the recent story about the rabidly anti-wolf ROCKY MOUNTAIN Elk Foundation and how they want to interject themselves into the pending federal lawsuit about relisting wolves in the GREAT LAKES. I am smart enough to know geography, and the ROCKY MOUNTAINS are not in the GREAT LAKES. I assume that because they are rabidly anti-wolf the wolf haters don’t view them as an “outside” group. And we are hypocrites?

If successful as an intervener, RMEF will join the Hunter Conservation Coalition group comprised of Safari Club International, National Rifle Association, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation, Wisconsin Bowhunters Association, Upper Peninsula Bear Houndsmen Association, Michigan United Conservation Clubs, and the Michigan Hunting Dog Federation.

Gee, how many of these groups are “outside groups” pushing their agendas? The NRA, SCI, RMEF, etc. No those aren’t big money “outside groups,” are they? Apparently in the eyes of anti-wolf/anti-wildlife groups you are only an “outside” group if you don’t follow their kill everything agenda. And they call us “hypocrites?” Give me a break.

And let us not forget the ultimate hypocritical statement about how having a killing season for wolves will make the wold haters more tolerant of the species. Sure. Just take a look at the revolting Wisconsin Wolf Hunting Facebook page to see how “tolerant” these cretins have become. How about this sadistic fantasy quote from the page

“The only regret I have is that I used a recording device without sound! Just think how cool a video with sound would have been. To hear him trying to gasp for air would have been amazing! I should have taken an “after” pic, because it looked like it tried to claw it’s own face off with it’s front paws.”

Sure sounds “tolerant” to me.

When are people going to wake up and realize that these kill everything groups care NOTHING about LIVING wildlife and wild lands. They always brag about how they “fund” the various fish and wildlife agencies across the country and act like the rest of us don’t contribute anything. This is another hypocritical fallacy because we haven’t been given the option to fund these agencies because that would end the hunter/trapper monopoly that they have on power. I and many other LIVING wildlife advocates would gladly pay to fund the Wisconsin DNR and other similar agencies. But guess what happens then? We would actually get a say in how the DNR operates and we might exposed their corrupt agenda and pandering to the killing cartels. We all know that will not happen anytime soon, so the killing cartels need to get off of their tired and stale argument about how only they fund “conservation.” They only pretend to want our money. Money equals control and they sure don’t want to give that up.  If they didn’t get to kill and torture our wildlife with traps and dogs, they wouldn’t give one dime for “conservation.” It is time that someone calls these hypocrites out for their ridiculous arguments.

It is also sickening about how the term “conservation” has been corrupted just as the word “harvest” has been. With groups like Conservation Force, SCI, the NRA, and RMEF it is all about KILLING, not “conservation.” Who really believes the garbage propaganda that they spew? It is like those that said during the Vietnam War that “sometimes you have to destroy a village to save it.” We all saw how that turned out and we are seeing now how “conservation” in Africa and for wolves in the United States is turning out. Please call these groups out for their hypocrisy every time that you can, and spread the word about their true agendas. We need to create a REAL “conservation force” and not pander to big money trophy killers feigning “conservation” for their own sick blood lust.

      The wildlife killers are trying to do everything they can to disarm nature lovers both by attacking our message & our credibility. We need to spread the message wherever & however we can-I think we have them on the run.

    Killing as conservation – that is what Sweden is doing also. Stupidity at its worst.
