Crime in the Name of Animal Rights


By: Staff  Date: 01/16/2012 Category: | Animal Rights Extremism |


Animal rights and environmental extremists do more than demonstrate and push radical legislation. They also use physical assaults, intimidation, vandalism, harassment, theft, property destruction and terrorism. During the past two decades these attacks have escalated. Because this is an international movement and major acts of terrorism and petty acts of vandalism and harassment occur virtually everyday, no list can keep up. This list is often cited as the most complete chronology of animal rights and eco- criminal acts on the Internet. Help us live up to that reputation by sending new or missing information to support@naiaonline.org.

Everyone should learn about Propaganda

Posted by gamecocksunlimited on February 22, 2013

 

Propaganda Techniques

Assertion:

Assertion is commonly used in advertising and modern propaganda. An assertion is an enthusiastic or energetic statement presented as a fact, although it is not necessarily true. They often imply that the statement requires no explanation or back up, but that it should merely be accepted without question. Examples of assertion, although somewhat scarce in wartime propaganda, can be found often in modern advertising propaganda. Any time an advertiser states that their product is the best without providing evidence for this, they are using an assertion. The subject, ideally, should simply agree to the statement without searching for additional information or reasoning. Assertions, although usually simple to spot, are often dangerous forms of propaganda because they often include falsehoods or lies.

Bandwagon:

Bandwagon is one of the most common techniques in both wartime and peacetime and plays an important part in modern advertising. Bandwagon is also one of the seven main propaganda techniques identified by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis in 1938. Bandwagon is an appeal to the subject to follow the crowd, to join in because others are doing so as well. Bandwagon propaganda is, essentially, trying to convince the subject that one side is the winning side, because more people have joined it. The subject is meant to believe that since so many people have joined, that victory is inevitable and defeat impossible. Since the average person always wants to be on the winning side, he or she is compelled to join in. However, in modern propaganda, bandwagon has taken a new twist. The subject is to be convinced by the propaganda that since everyone else is doing it, they will be left out if they do not. This is, effectively, the opposite of the other type of bandwagon, but usually provokes the same results. Subjects of bandwagon are compelled to join in because everyone else is doing so as well. When confronted with bandwagon propaganda, we should weigh the pros and cons of joining in independently from the amount of people who have already joined, and, as with most types of propaganda, we should seek more information.

Card stacking:

Card stacking, or selective omission, is one of the seven techniques identified by the IPA, or Institute for Propaganda Analysis. It involves only presenting information that is positive to an idea or proposal and omitting information contrary to it. Card stacking is used in almost all forms of propaganda, and is extremely effective in convincing the public. Although the majority of information presented by the card stacking approach is true, it is dangerous because it omits important information. The best way to deal with card stacking is to get more information.

Glittering Generalities:

Glittering generalities was one of the seven main propaganda techniques identified by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis in 1938. It also occurs very often in politics and political propaganda. Glittering generalities are words that have different positive meaning for individual subjects, but are linked to highly valued concepts. When these words are used, they demand approval without thinking, simply because such an important concept is involved. For example, when a person is asked to do something in “defense of democracy” they are more likely to agree. The concept of democracy has a positive connotation to them because it is linked to a concept that they value. Words often used as glittering generalities are honor, glory, love of country, and especially in the United States, freedom. When coming across with glittering generalities, we should especially consider the merits of the idea itself when separated from specific words.

Lesser of Two Evils:

The “lesser of two evils” technique tries to convince us of an idea or proposal by presenting it as the least offensive option. This technique is often implemented during wartime to convince people of the need for sacrifices or to justify difficult decisions. This technique is often accompanied by adding blame on an enemy country or political group. One idea or proposal is often depicted as one of the only options or paths. When confronted with this technique, the subject should consider the value of any proposal independently of those it is being compared with.

Name Calling:

Name calling occurs often in politics and wartime scenarios, but very seldom in advertising. It is another of the seven main techniques designated by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis. It is the use of derogatory language or words that carry a negative connotation when describing an enemy. The propaganda attempts to arouse prejudice among the public by labeling the target something that the public dislikes. Often, name calling is employed using sarcasm and ridicule, and shows up often in political cartoons or writings. When examining name calling propaganda, we should attempt to separate our feelings about the name and our feelings about the actual idea or proposal.

Pinpointing the Enemy:

Pinpointing the enemy is used extremely often during wartime, and also in political campaigns and debates. This is an attempt to simplify a complex situation by presenting one specific group or person as the enemy. Although there may be other factors involved the subject is urged to simply view the situation in terms of clear-cut right and wrong. When coming in contact with this technique, the subject should attempt to consider all other factors tied into the situation. As with almost all propaganda techniques, the subject should attempt to find more information on the topic. An informed person is much less susceptible to this sort of propaganda.

Plain Folks:

The plain folks propaganda technique was another of the seven main techniques identified by the IPA, or Institute for Propaganda Analysis. The plain folks device is an attempt by the propagandist to convince the public that his views reflect those of the common person and that they are also working for the benefit of the common person. The propagandist will often attempt to use the accent of a specific audience as well as using specific idioms or jokes. Also, the propagandist, especially during speeches, may attempt to increase the illusion through imperfect pronunciation, stuttering, and a more limited vocabulary. Errors such as these help add to the impression of sincerity and spontaneity. This technique is usually most effective when used with glittering generalities, in an attempt to convince the public that the propagandist views about highly valued ideas are similar to their own and therefore more valid. When confronted by this type of propaganda, the subject should consider the proposals and ideas separately from the personality of the presenter.

Simplification (Stereotyping):

Simplification is extremely similar to pinpointing the enemy, in that it often reduces a complex situation to a clear-cut choice involving good and evil. This technique is often useful in swaying uneducated audiences. When faced with simplification, it is often useful to examine other factors and pieces of the proposal or idea, and, as with all other forms of propaganda, it is essential to get more information.

Testimonials:

Testimonials are another of the seven main forms of propaganda identified by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis. Testimonials are quotations or endorsements, in or out of context, which attempt to connect a famous or respectable person with a product or item. Testimonials are very closely connected to the transfer technique, in that an attempt is made to connect an agreeable person to another item. Testimonials are often used in advertising and political campaigns. When coming across testimonials, the subject should consider the merits of the item or proposal independently of the person of organization giving the testimonial.

Transfer:

Transfer is another of the seven main propaganda terms first used by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis in 1938. Transfer is often used in politics and during wartime. It is an attempt to make the subject view a certain item in the same way as they view another item, to link the two in the subjects mind. Although this technique is often used to transfer negative feelings for one object to another, it can also be used in positive ways. By linking an item to something the subject respects or enjoys, positive feelings can be generated for it. However, in politics, transfer is most often used to transfer blame or bad feelings from one politician to another of his friends or party members, or even to the party itself. When confronted with propaganda using the transfer technique, we should question the merits or problems of the proposal or idea independently of convictions about other objects or proposals.

To all Tennessee Representatives and Senators

Posted by gamecocksunlimited on February 17, 2013

Legislation attempting to criminalize cockfighting in Tennessee should be rejected at face value. Cockfighting has an irrefutably long history and tradition in Tennessee and should enjoy the same protections as commercial production and hunting. It is important to remember that the prohibition of cockfighting is being driven by the same political forces that would ultimately like to see the end of commercial food production and sport hunting in America. The exact same core rationale asserting cruelty is advanced as an argument to abolish all of these activities. Tennessee responded to pressure from animal rights groups by making hunting a constitutional right. Cockfighting deserves the same protections.

Initially, it is also well understood that Tennessee amended the state constitution in 2010 to protect hunting for subsistence and recreational purposes based on the grounds of culture and tradition. The Tennessee Joint Assembly in 2010 declared, “WHEREAS, the Legislature finds that hunting and fishing are honored traditions in the state of Tennessee; and WHEREAS, from the time prior to statehood, citizens have enjoyed the bounty of Tennessee’s natural resources, including hunting and fishing for subsistence and recreation. Indeed, hunting and fishing are a vital part of this state’s heritage and economy and should be preserved and protected.” (SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION 30 By Jackson, A RESOLUTION to propose an amendment to Article XI, Section 13 of the Constitution of the State of Tennessee, relative to the right to hunt, fish, and harvest game.)

Cockfighting should be protected based on the exact same rationale. From “a time prior to statehood, citizens have enjoyed” cockfighting “for subsistence and recreation.” Cockfighting dates back thousands of years before the inception of America and the settlement of Tennessee. It is irrefutable that cockfighting has deep historical and traditional roots in Tennessee culture and contributes millions to the state economy through breeding and related businesses. Indeed, cockfighting is “a vital part of this state’s heritage and economy and should be protected.” Moreover, cockfighting is the harvesting of game, even if done recreationally. It seems intuitive that cockfighting should receive constitutional protection because it is by definition the harvest of a gamefowl.

Independent of this state constitutional justification, the 14th Amendment to the US constitution requires that no state “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” (Section One of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.) If the state of Tennessee protects hunting based on tradition and economy then cockfighting deserves the same equal protections guaranteed by the 14th amendment.

Moreover, the same rationale extends to the commercial poultry industry. It is incontrovertible that commercial poultry are treated more egregiously than gamefowl. In fact, poultry are excluded from the Humane Slaughter Act of 1958 because they are legally considered less sentient than other commercially slaughtered animals. Certainly cockfighting deserves these same protections.

The only argument besides cruelty is the specious assertion that cockfighting promotes gambling and a criminal element. These assertions are false. The only comprehensive study concerning game-cocking in America, proves that game-cockers are primarily non-violent, law-abiding and patriotic citizens. Indeed, the survey concludes, “There are no serious psychological differences between those who engage in this behavior and those who do not. Certainly there are NO signs of psychotic behavior. On attitudes expressed, people engaged in this recreational form are basically conservative, highly concerned with health and outdoor life, strongly patriotic and strongly in favor of obeying laws and preservation of public order.” (Professor William C. Capel, Clemson University and Professor Clifton Bryant, VA Poly-technical Institute and State University, AMERICAN COCKERS: RESULTS FROM A NATIONAL SURVEY CONDUCTED IN 1974 THROUGH 1991)

Also, gambling issues can be addressed within the context of legislation. Regulation of gamecock harvest and/or enforcement enhancements to current gambling regulations are superior alternatives to embracing unconstitutional policies based on the non-unique issue of illegal gambling on sporting activities. Remember, billions of dollars are illegally wagered on legal sporting events every year. This fact has not led to the abolition of football, for example. If there is any legitimacy to the claims of illegal gambling and a criminal element related to cockfighting, then those claims are made worse by driving the activity underground where it remains hidden from public scrutiny and potential regulation. The majority of cock-fighters are otherwise patriotic and law abiding citizens. The arbitrary legislative targeting of cockfighting only risks turning ethical US citizens into felons and leaves the sport vulnerable to the criminal element because many law abiding citizens are being driven out of the sport.

Sincerely,

_____________________________________________________________________

 

This was taken off Facebook and applies to all states. The Gamecock Heritage should be protected so the gamecock can survive. The Hsus and other animal right extremists are not just going after the Gamecock Heritage.  They are going after the Hunting Heritage, Fishing Heritage, Trapping Heritage, Farming Heritage, Hound Hunting Heritage, etc.

It is time to put our differences aside and come together to save our cultural and rural lifestyles from these intolerant and hypocritical bigots.

How does cockfighting compare to other offences nationwide?

Posted by gamecocksunlimited on February 13, 2013

How does cockfighting compare to other offences nationwide?

 Cockfighting does not compare with dog fighting. Every state in the US already has some form of dog fighting, animal cruelty, or cockfighting law on its books. In 2006 there were only 75 cases of illegal cockfighting compare this to the

14,062 cases of murder and homicide

 25,528 case of forcible rape

 114,616 cases of robbery

 449,297 of aggravated assault

 1,146,696 cases of theft and larceny

 1,371,919 cases of DUI

 129,128 offenses against children and family

 900,000 children abused or neglected (one every 35 seconds!)

 797,500 children reported missing

 Compare the cockfighting cases to the above statistics and you’ll find state laws are doing a more than adequate job. This law is not needed nor is it wanted. In 2005 there were 2,193,798 prisoners in our prison system. Our law enforcement has enough to do without chasing chicken farmers. Our farmers do not belong in prison just so our government can feel good about stroking Wayne Pacelle’s ego.
