Activists: Killing Animals is Bad, Targeting Researcher's Family with Firebombs is "Necessary"

All my friends on the left were outraged by the Tennessee church attack last week because of the reasons for the attack cited by the deranged shooter. They (not law enforcement) subsequently labeled the shooting "domestic terrorism."

I'm sure they will issue equally ferocious condemnations of this attack shortly.

The FBI today is expected to take over the investigation of the Saturday morning firebombings of a car and of a Westside home belonging to two UC Santa Cruz biomedical researchers who conduct experiments on animals.

Santa Cruz police officials said Sunday the case will be handed to the FBI to investigate as domestic terrorism while local authorities explore additional security measures for the 13 UCSC researchers listed in a threatening animal-rights pamphlet found in a downtown coffee shop last week.


While a spokesman said he didn't know who committed the act, the Woodland Hills-based Animal Liberation Front called the attacks a "necessary" act, just like those who fought against civil rights injustices. Spokesman Dr. Jerry Vlasak showed no remorse for the family or children who were targeted.

"If their father is willing to continue risking his livelihood in order to continue chopping up animals in a laboratory than his children are old enough to recognize the consequences," said Vlasak, a former animal researcher who is now a trauma surgeon. "This guy knows what he is doing. He knows that every day that he goes into the laboratory and hurts animals that it is unreasonable not to expect consequences."

You heard the man. According to our learned left-wing doctor, researchers that are trying to get an understanding of how the brain works deserve to have their children burned to death.

The local police captain was less than impressed.

Clark, the Santa Cruz police captain, said it was "unconscionable" for anyone to defend such acts: "To put this on par with any of the human rights issues is an absolute insult to the integrity of the people who fought and went through the human rights movement. This is what people do when they have an inability to articulate their point in any constructive way. They resort to primal acts of violence. Any reasonable person would need a logic transplant to begin to understand this level of degraded thinking."

Degraded thinking? From the animal rights crowd?

Surely, you can't be serious.

I'm sure it's Rush Limbaugh's fault.

All I needed to hear was Santa Cruz. There's some really high quality crazy walking the streets of that town.

If this moron is a trauma surgeon he owes his job to work done in the 1940s by Blalock on dogs. The use of the word "necessary" mean to me that the nature of this attack has been debated within his movement and approved. Perhaps he knows something of interest in this case. Countless human lives have been saved through lessons learned in animal surgery. Why would anyone lie down for this guy if they knew he considered human life less than paramount?

Yeah. Wait 'til someone gives them a "necessary" Second Amendment "message" one of these days when some scientist feels threatened by the people fiddling around on their property.

Well, I'm sure if someone firebombed the ALF headquarters, then had a spokesperson explain that it was "neccessary" and that anyone who is willing to continue strongarm political terror tactics should be prepared for "consequences", why, I'm sure the ALF would understand...
