Also, anyone who thinks that the right wing in the United States is sane just needs to read this comment on the linked article to understand what we are dealing with:
“Doesn’t anyone realize that the Audubon Society, like other subversive organizations who put the animal kingdom ahead of generating human wealth, is just another Socialist Front, based on the French revolutionary Rouseauan ideology of “Back to Nature,” and on the United Nations Convention of Biologiocal Diversity? All of these subversive groups have one ideal: Return Man to Caveman Status, surrounded by wild animals. Such organizations are well-funded by tax-exempt foundations like the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. We will need mass graves to achieve such an ideological goal.”
That’s some quality wharrgarrblle there Corey.
