Breaking: Environmental Terrorists ELF Indicted for Arson

By Debbie Schlussel
Don’t forget that PETA a/k/a PUTAh (People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals and humans) contributed money to this terrorist group:

Four people, including three from Detroit and all connected to a radical environmental group linked to similar attacks, have been indicted on federal felony arson charges in connection with the attacks on an agricultural building at Michigan State University and logging equipment in northern Michigan in late 1999 and early 2000.
Officials said at a 2 p.m. news conference today that the four are linked to the radical environmental group Earth Liberation Front, a loosely organized movement of environmental extremists with a history of destroying property, often by arson, to intimidate and coerce communities, businesses and governments to abandoning activities that ELF considers harmful to the environment.


ELF Terrorism Marks a Destructive Path

The Dec. 31, 1999, attack at MSU destroyed a genetic engineering laboratory. A day later, fire destroyed commercial logging equipment near Mesick.
“This was more than an attack on a building and the destruction of valuable property. It was an assault on a core value of free and open inquiry at a research university,” said Lou Anna Simon, president of Michigan State University.
The four indicted are Marie Mason, 46, of Cincinnati; Frank Ambrose, 33, of Detroit; Aren Burthwick, 27, of Detroit; and Stephanie Fultz, 27, of Detroit.

These terrorists deserve the book thrown at them. If you support ELF’s goals, you should be forced to limit your food and produce intake to that which is not a result of agricultural research (which excludes almost all produce, today–even “organic” crops). And you should be forced to live in a mud hovel, since otherwise, your home hurts the “environment.”
But, also, even if you aren’t an animal rights terrorist, if you believe in animal rights you should not be allowed to use any medicines that were tested on animals or which contain animal products. Period.
How many poor people lost out on food because advances in crop-growing were delayed years by this terrorist activity?
This time it was agricultural research, but at far too many other times, it’s animal research that’s targeted by this group’s allies. How many important breakthroughs in cancer research or cures for other illnesses were delayed for years through such repeated acts of terrorism on animal research labs? Far too many. How many people died because of such delays in cures? Again, far too many.

Standard liberal hypocrisy — YOU can’t have this, YOU can’t live like this, blah, blah, blah, but don’t you dare tell ME that I can’t have this, that I can’t live like this.
Every time I hear one of these stories, Debbie, I think (fondly) of the idiot female animal rights “activist” (“terrorist” is more apt, of course) who releases the infected chimpanzee who initiates the plague in the great, and genuinely scary, horror film, “28 Days Later.”
“Oh, poor little chimp! Come on out of there, baby! Here, I’ll open the door of your cage . . . ARRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!”
